Fast Flash

by Duncan Jones

Sun up, sun down
Fast Flash flashes
As he dashes zig zaggin’ in the grass
Cheerin’ comin’ near
And watchin’ with an ear
All the ladies leave the shade to see him pass

All day long and into the night
Flash he keeps ’em runnin’
Always gunnin’ ’til the light
And the eyes try, try to fly
Try now to fly …

No they can’t catch Flash
Not Flash! Too fast!
Have you seen Flash dash
Zig zaggin’ in the grass?
Always laughin’ when they slash
But no! Not Flash!
Have you seen Flash dash?
So fast!

Uh Oh No!
Rain came and changed the game
Flash splashes as he thrashes in the grass
And strong Roar roars
“Flash dashes no more!”
Makin’ splashes as he dashed poor Flash!

All day long and into the night
You can hear the ladies wailin’
Voices sailin’ ’til the light
And they all call, all bawl
All night they call …

No they can’t catch Flash
Not Flash! Too fast!
Have you seen Flash dash
Zig zaggin’ in the grass?
Always laughin’ when they slash
But no! Not Flash!
Have you seen Flash dash?
Too rash!

And the ladies in the shade say
“Watch the boy get away!”
Ladies in the shade say
“Our boy, he’s gonna get away!”

Ladies in the shade say
“Watch the boy get away!”
Ladies in the shade say
All day, what they say?

But then once again
They see flashin’! Where’s he been?
Strong Roar roars he’s so mad!
Mile after mile
They all recognize the smile
The attention Flash had! He was a dad!

And the stars come out just to see Flash’s son
And they flash right back
Sayin’, “Run boy run!”
And the eyes try, try to fly
Try now to fly …

No they can’t catch Flash
Not Flash! Too fast!
Have you seen Flash dash
Zig zaggin’ in the grass?
Always laughin’ when they slash
But no! Not Flash!
Have you seen Flash dash?
So fast!

And the ladies in the shade say
“Watch the boy get away!”
Ladies in the shade say
“Our boy, he’s gonna get away!”

Ladies in the shade say
“Watch the boy get away!”
Ladies in the shade say
All day, what they say?

No they can’t catch Flash
Not Flash! Too fast!
Have you seen Flash dash
Zig zaggin’ in the grass?
Always laughin’ when they slash
But no! Not Flash!
Have you seen Flash dash?
So fast!
