DAVE’S AUSTRALIA DAY ADVENT JUKEBOX #14

WIMBLEDON

Much as I like the original recording it wasn’t exactly as I heard the song in my head. Finally in 2017 I recorded WHEN and the song as I’d wanted. (just hit the title for the video)

I’ve packed my bags and I’ve sold the amp

I’m moving out of rock

I’ve got the makings of a tennis champ

And so I’m bound for Wimbledon

All this decay is stifling me

Too much drugs and booze

And so I’m bound for Wimbledon

Where I cannot lose

The backhand volley and the forehand smash

The lovely ladies and the prize in cash

Rock is dying but I’m going to live

It’s not taking me down with it

The basic thing that appeals to me

The racquet doesn’t lie

Unlike this racket called an industry

Cause it makes stars like Wimbledon

ART BY DAVE ROSE

But half the stars are charlatans

Most of the rest are dead

And so I’m bound for Wimbledon

To grace the net instead

The backhand volley and the forehand smash

The lovely ladies and the prize in cash

Rock is dying but I’m going to live
