Raining Gravel

Who did you think you are?
Wishing up on every shooting star
When that didn't work you started wishing on space junk
Anything that streaked across your sky

What did you think you'd get?
Dancing for rain on a minaret
Then you start complaining when it's raining gravel
You and your umbrella were just looking to get wet

If you want something bad enough
Go and make it happen
If you want to see magic
Carry an ace under your hat

Where did you think you'd go?
Fresno, California, or Mexico
Gravel rain makes potholes the size of canyons
Gravel puddles so tall you can't clear them with a tank

If you want something bad enough
Go and make it happen
If you want to see magic
Carry an ace under your hat
If you want something bad enough
Go and make it happen
If you want to see fireworks
Have a sparkle in your eye
