Chunks of the Pier
An Improvisation by the Big Jerks

 

Bup bup bup bup!
Bup bup bup bup!
Bup bup bup bup!
B B B Buu
B B B Buu
Bup bup bup bup!
Oh ohh ohhh

There I was
Running
Running towards the pier
I wasn't thinkin' about nothin' else but...
Running, in time running joggin' joggin'
The Manhattan Beach Pier.

Joggin'

'Bout 50 yards from the pier...
For some reason, I see my life flash before my eyes
Joggin'!
'Bout 25 yards from the pier
Joggin'
Why am I...? - flashing before my eyes
I'm just a jogger, out for the morning jog...Joggin'!
10 yards from the pier. Joggin'!
I'm thinkin' O.K. I'll just run right smack dab under the pier!
No problem no problem
Then I'll sit down and think about what I was, why I was, when I was,
How I was thinkin' about...
My life flashed before my eyes. Joggin'!
And then it happened.
A chunk of the pier.
Why me, God? Why me?
A chunk of the pier.
I can see it like it's in slow motion!
It's falling towards my, towards my head!

A chunk of the pier it's falling to my head, falling to my head!
A chunk of the pier it's falling to my head, falling to my head!
A chunk of the pier it's falling to my head, falling to my head!
A chunk of the pier it's falling to my head, falling to my head!
A chunk of the pier it's falling to my head, falling to my head,
falling to my head!

Oww! Uuuh!

A chunk of the pier, chunk of the pier chunk of the pier.
A chunk of the pier, a chunk of the pier, a chunk of the pier
Falling to my head, falling to my head
Falling to my head, a chunk of the pier!

Well, the paramedics were on the scene within minutes.
I was paralysed for life.

 

Paralysed for life!
Paralysed for life!

Life!
Life!
Life!
Paralysed for life!
Life!

Well, they closed the pier
They put up a Century chain link fence
Around the bottom-side
Maybe they thought that,
If no one else ran down there.

No more chunks of the pier would fall on their heads
No more chunks of the pier would fall on their heads
No more chunks of the pier would fall on their heads
No more chunks of the pier would fall on their heads
No more chunks of the pier would fall on their heads
No more chunks of the pier would fall on their heads
No more chunks of the pier would fall on their heads
No more chunks of the pier would fall on their heads
No more chunks of the pier would fall on their heads

No more chunks of the pier would fall on their heads
No more chunks of the pier would fall on their heads!
