A Cheap Trip

©1973, 2013 by Robert Davidson

Trevor used to go to school
Where did Trevor go to school
Massachusetts was where Trevor went to school
Who would have believed it
Did he go for fun or was it education
Was it education
His parents made him go
They did not know
That Massachusetts was a place where he could
Have some fun
Get things done
A place to run

Was he happy there
With all the teachers they were everywhere
Liberals liberals
Liberal open minded choads
Who could never figure out
What all of the students were doing
In their own phony thing called
School

There was a boy who went to the school
Fony was his name and he was cool
One day he took a turn for no good
Did some afrin as we knew he would
He’d become 1000 times as smart
Now could really get into art
Art that used to make him want to fart
He kept it up for at least five days
Lost in his dreams
Real as it seems
Dreams cannot hurt me

Where did he get the poison that he took?
Where did he, how did he, why did he?
Was he with Trevor, in his room
Listening to Zappa records, all alone
Trevor’s out, Fony's big trip

Everyone wondered what his fate would be

Do you think they cared?
They stood and stared
They stood and stared

Crispy little bumps she has just walked in the room
Trevor drinks his beer what of his career?
He is always working but no one really cares

Yes this is the sad part, the sad part of this story
Just thought that I'd tell you

Poor boy
Helpless
He never did anything wrong
A victim of everybody else's bad judgment
Wrong

Mindless
Useless
Who will pay?
For the Frank Zappa albums
That sent him on his way

A victim of everyone else's bad judgment
Wrong
