Thumbs Up! (Little Hitchhiker)

She was picked up somewhere near happy

And let go in the center of sad

When she found out that her thumbs up

Was the key to bring her down bad

 

The color of her eyes were starlight

But now they’re only dark shades of grey

She said this could never happen to her

But no one told Mister Evil Man today

 

Thumbs Up! Legs out! Raise your skirt a little higher

Stopped one… picked up… what happens now little hitchhiker?

Thumbs Up! Legs out! Show some flesh to get a ride

Don’t think… don’t hear… how others did this and died

 

We got the news sometime near seven

She was heading to emergency

Mister Blue told us all that happened

How it could’ve been prevented easily

 

She was not taken from innocence

But instead from personal choice

To devour this lesson hard to learn

After disregarding proper voice     (to chorus)

 

She needed to be home in a hurry

At least that’s what she thought at the time

But getting somewhere a little late

Is worth it to save peace of mind

 

And her body now needs to heal

From its trip down the road of abuse

But at least she’s here to carry on

Unlike the non-survivors of misuse

 

Thumbs Up! Legs out! Raise your skirt a little higher

Stopped one… picked up… what happens now little hitchhiker?

Thumbs Up! Legs out! Show some flesh to get a ride

Don’t think… don’t hear… how others did this and died

        I’ve done some crazy things, but never hitchhiked. But it made me think about an incident . . . 🙂

        I think I could sing your song, the chorus is going round and round, but I would totally trash it. 🙂 Another funny regarding singing for another place.

        Oh, Lord, you just reminded me of something else. So, so funny. I think i need to go write the incidents down before I forget them.
