Yesterday I woke up
I was feeling kind of Nelson
The birds outside were singing all their hits
The sun was bright
My shirt was white
My coffee hot
My shower warm
My smoke was cool
The kids in school
Were playing ball
But no so loud
And most importantly:
My shoes tied by themselves!

Went to meet my girl
Boy, she was feeling kind of Nelson
The smile she gave me lit up all the street
Her hands were warm
Her lips were hot
Her eyes were shining
Demon lights
The breeze was cool
The kids in school
Were playing ball
But no so loud
And most importantly:
My shoes untied themselves!

Tomorrow when you wake up
You’ll be feeling kind of Nelson
You’ll call me home if it’s not before lunch
We’ll hit the park
Until it’s dark
We’ll drink some brew
We’ll smoke some trees
We’ll beat the cops
They’re ruled by hate
The kids in school
But no so late
And most importantly:
Their shoes will tie themselves!
