lyrics

From Oakville to Affton
The girls are wearing shorts again
And their legs are shiny white in the sun
Kids are in the park again
Where leaves are turning green and then
We drive around the town with the windows down

Sometimes we intuit life so well
It makes me want to take my silly plans
And send them all to hell
But I wish I had better stories to tell
(Sitting on a dirty couch)
Just you and me and the thought that things
Might get better

The girl in the car behind me
She’s really rocking out
And maybe she’s watching me watching her
In her rear-view mirror
I don’t recognize the bands on the bumper of her car
But I’m sure if we’d get together
We could figure it out

CHORUS

From Oakville to Affton
Kids in pickup trucks are laughing
And the girls are smiling brighter, louder still
If there’s one thing I could intuit
If I could see right through it
I’m never ever gonna get my fill

CHORUS

Mr. Michalski has been recording and performing music since his high school days in 1993. CRANKY is his first non-single release since 2013. ... more
