  • Thereʼs rain and thereʼs bows
    & thereʼs angels in the snow

    and thereʼs heartaches and blows
    & there are thousand dollar clothes

    and thereʼs blood & thereʼs flats
    & thereʼs revolution man.

    There are shots, there are droves
    & thereʼs feelinʼ pretty low.

    There are boys and thereʼre girls
    in a fast unfolding world.

    There are stiffs and thereʼs cads
    & alcoholic Dads,

    and thereʼs sheets and thereʼs kind
    & a life outside the mind,

    and thereʼs berries and cream
    & a million chocolate things

    and there are lines & red lights
    & thereʼs trafficking at night

    and thereʼs ivy and cards
    & a heron in your yard.

    Thereʼs lakes and wheat farms
    & thereʼs parties at the barn

    and thereʼs Mustangs and naps
    & there are reds and browns and blacks

    and there are candles and bees
    & thereʼs playing with hot wax

    and there are ceilings and caps
    & thereʼs wanting something back.

    Thereʼs pleasure and cost
    & thereʼs knowing what you lost

    and thereʼs dumb luck and plain
    lazy clogging up the drain.

    Thereʼs blue bulbs and shine
    & bikinis thin as dimes

    and there are suits and thereʼs knives
    & there are desperate lonely wives,

    but thereʼs this and thereʼs this
    and thereʼs this and this and this

    so thereʼs that, so thereʼs that
    so thereʼs this and this and that.

    So thereʼs this, so thereʼs this
    so thereʼs this and this and this,

    so thereʼs that, so thereʼs that
    so thereʼs that and that and that.
