The Rock
To The Tune Of: "I Am A Rock" (Paul Simon, 1965)
By: Dannell Lites

A winter's night -

In a deep and ebon darkness;
I am alone!
Hiding in my Batcave,
Shadows that I crave,
Vainly looking for a stranger I can save.

I am a rock!

I am an island!

I've built walls -

A cavern deep and mighty;
That none may penetrate.
I have no need of friendship,
Friendship causes pain,
It's laughter and it's loving I disdain.

I am a rock!

I am an island!

Don't talk of love -

Well, I've heard the word before;
It's sleeping in my memory.
I won't disturb the slumber,
Of feelings that have died.
If I never loved I never would have cried.

I am a rock!

I am an island!

I have my mission,

Kevlar and Nomex to protect me -
I am shielded in my armor;
Hiding in my gloom,
Safe within my womb,
I touch no one and no one touches me.

I am a rock!

I am an island!
And a rock feels no pain ...
And an island never cries ...

The End
