4/8/19: Lanikai Beach Bum Blues

This place may be heaven for some
but I sure ain’t gonna be one
Nothing in my pockets now but sand
Don’t even try and think you understand

Hear em laughing and playing
behind their tall brick walls’n I’m praying
for even the smallest little piece of shade
I’d be long gone the moment I got made

Ain’t no good riffraff
sure ain’t no bad riffraff
Ain’t no way I’d stay if I only had to choose
Meth heads like Kenny I could use

Instead I got them lost and lonely
Lanikai beach bum blues

I shoulda stayed in that sewer
over there in lower Kailua
never before seen Mokulua road
if I had a car it woulda already done been towed

See em sunning and swimmin’
in front of selfie sticks’n they’re grinnin’
but this beach ain’t got the powder sand it once had
if I stay here one more hour I’ll go mad

Ain’t no good riffraff
sure ain’t no bad riffraff
Ain’t no way I’d stay if I only had to choose
Think I’ll lie here between these rich folks’s outrigger canoes

It’s gettin’ to me and me only
Yea I’m lost and lonely
with them ol’
Lanikai beach bum…
looks like I’m the only one
with them Lanikai beach bum blues

——

Blessed…
