SPRING TOUR EVE

TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE TOUR AND ALL THROUGH HYDE PARK…
ALL THE RANSOM NOTES WERE WIDE AWAKE IN THE DARK.
SAM SCARROW WAS “SO.PUMPED.” THAT’S WHAT HE WAS.
(JUST LIKE WE IMAGINE HE ONCE FELT, ANTICIPATING SANTA CLAUS).
LAUREN WAS PACKING HER BAGS AND SUITCASES,
AND PROBABLY PLACING THEM NEXT TO HER BASS’S.
TOMORROW WE’LL PACK OUR TWO VANS TO THE BRINK
THEN SQUISH OURSELVES INSIDE, AND WISH WE COULD SHRINK.

IT’S FIRST TO THE LAND OF SPRINGFIELD WHEN CHICAGO WE LEAVE
WE WILL STAY WITH THE FISH(ES) AND SING WITH JUST EVE,

DAY 2 BRINGS US TO PITTSBURGH TO RAISE FUNDS
AND SING WITH THE PITT PENDULUMS FOR LOTS, LOTS MORE FUN!

IT’S A LONG WAY, THE NEXT DAY, TO DELAWARE
(HOPEFULLY WE CAN GET THERE WITHOUT USING OUR SPARE)!
WITH THE BUCKWORTHS WE’LL STAY, BEFORE WE DEPART
IT’S ONLY AN HOUR TO PHILLLY– WE WON’T NEED A HEAD START.

THEN IT WILL BE MONDAY AND WE’LL SING WITH GRACENOTES
I HOPE IT WON’T BE SO COLD THAT WE’LL NEED COATS.

TUESDAY WHEN WE SAY GOODBYE TO THE SCARROWS,
WE WILL HAVE TO BE UP WITH THE BLUE JAYS AND SPARROWS
CAUSE OUR FIRST GIG’S AT 10, IN A HIGH SCHOOL IN JERSEY,
AND HALF-DONE WILL BE OUR ODYSSEY.
THAT TUESDAY NIGHT WE’LL STAY IN NEW YORK
AFTER SINGING FLAWLESSLY, LIKE A ….TUNING …FORK…?

WEDNESDAY WE’LL BE PERFORMING AT SAINT VINCENT FERRER
BRINGING BACK SOME OF ONE NOTE’S MEMORIES OF TERROR
BEFORE WE STAY IN BROOKLYN WITH OUR DEAR, DEAR OLD FRIENDS,
A GIANT RANSOM NOTE FAMILY THAT NEVER WILL END…?

THURSDAY WE WILL SING FOR SAOIRSE’S GRANNY
AND SIGHTSEE THE CITY (SANS PACKS OF FANNIE).
FRIDAY WE HEAD WEST, AS THE PIONEERS
CONCLUDING OUR TOUR FOR TWO MORE YEARS.
