Barnyard Stomp (redux)

by Barry Louis Polisar

Just like a rusty pick-up truck that's missing it's front wheel;
When you are not beside me, that's just the way I feel.
Like peanut butter without jam -- or peaches without cream,
A whistling tea kettle that's runnin' out of steam.
Some people search for meaning, but I see it so clear;
I'm glad to be alive and I am happy with you here.

I know I am so lucky to have you by my side;
The clouds all lift, the sky is blue, the world is big and wide.
Walking through the morning mist or through the woods at night,
Side by side, together, underneath a moon so bright.
Some people search for meaning, but I see it so clear;
I'm glad to be alive and I am happy with you here.

I love the way you meet me standing at the kitchen door,
Constant as the stars above -- or the waves up on the shore;
How you come runnin' when I call, to play a game of catch
Or rest your head up on my lap to get a little scratch.
Some people search for meaning, but I see it so clear;
I'm glad to be alive and I am happy with you here.
