Doom And Gloom

I had a dream last night that I was piloting a plane

And all the passengers were drunk and insane

I crash landed in a Louisiana swamp

Shot up a horde of zombies

But I come out on top


Fracking deep for oil but there’s nothing in the sump

There’s kids all picking at the garbage dump

I am running out of water so I better prime the pump

I am trying to stay sober but I end up drunk

All lyrics by Mick Jagger/Keith Richards, except where otherwise specified.
