Buddy Graystone - Pet Rock

Today I found my long lost Pet Rock You know, the one from the 70's I was sure years ago I'd lost him for good Go ahead, ask if I'm happy I found him on the side of the road Just relaxing at doing nothing I guess without me in his life He was major bored or something I picked him up and we both hugged It was a very emotional moment I know what your thinking to yourself Kinda brings a tear to your eye now don't it After exchanging the usual pleasantries I placed him in a kerchief of silken lining If I didn't tell you I skipped all the way home You know I would be lying Getting back to the house all tuckered out We went early to bed I fluffed a pillow up just enough So Buddy could lay his weary head I can't tell you how good it feels right now To have my Pet Rock back home with me At last my life can get back into A mode of normalcy Wait....You didn't honestly think I would end it here did you? When we woke up early the next morning I poured Buddy a bowl Fruity Pebbles He looked at me rather strangely As if questioning, what do you think I'm some sort of cannibal? After that little speed bump in our relationship To get our friendship back on track I suggested we go somewhere special Buddy suggested we take a nap I'd forgotten after all these years How much he liked to lay around Guess nothing much has changed On this, his side of Gravel town Buddy and I do everything together My Love for this rock, can't get out of my head Where my life was once filled with immeasurable sadness Now overflows with loads of joy instead That is until the day we went to the park And he wanted to skip across the lake At that point I realize He and I might have made a grave mistake...

Love this clever, very charming, nostalgic and very humorous write about a 1970's pet rock fad....maybe I'll write one about a mood ring, lol ;o
