about

Lizard On A Rock: The working title was lizard on a box ... I needed one more song for the project and I had a nice verse pattern that I was messing with on the Ovation acoustic. There was this plastic lizard sitting on top of a small wooden box on a shelf. A beautiful sunny day and out of my mouth pops "I barely move at all, I'm a lizard on a box ..." After a couple of Weird Al verses, I finally got serious with the song. Always thought Michael and INXS should have covered this one ...

lyrics

I barely move at all ..
I’m a lizard on a rock
I stick to the surface when the sun gets nice and hot
I don’t think about much at all
I change my colours when it’s time to crawl
Yeah – I like this lizard on a rock

Heat doesn’t bother me ...
I like to soak it up
I’m in the lap of luxury in this desert that I love
Don’t need a special friend
I been alone since time began
Yeah - I own this lizard on a rock

Rattlesnakes don’t bother me
And I’m much too tough to eat
It’s harsh and unforgiving, baby
In this desert heat

Oh – lizard on a rock
Oh – lizard on a rock

I only catch my dinner
When it wanders up too close
And then I jump right in there, yeah ...
’Cause I love their flesh the most
I barely move and I never blink
I watch the sun just rise and sink
Yeah - I am this lizard on a rock

Rattlesnakes don’t bother me
And I’m much too tough to eat
It’s harsh and unforgiving, baby
In this desert heat

Oh – lizard on a rock
Oh – lizard on a rock
Oh – lizard on a rock
Oh – lizard on a rock

On a rock, on a rock, I’m a lizard on a rock -
