Curbside Prophet
by Jason Mraz



I'm just a curbside prophet
with my hand in my pocket
and I'm waitin' for my rocket to come
I'm just a curbside prophet
with my hand in my pocket
and I'm waitin' for my rocket Yall
Hey

Ya see it started way back in NYC
when I stole my first ride from the MIC
at a west and avenue at 63
it's a beginning of a leap year February
'96 when a guitar picked it up in the mix
I committed to the lycs
like a nickle bag-a-tricks
well, look at me now
look at me now
look at me now,now,now

I'm just a curbside prophet
with my hand in my pocket
and I'm waitin' for my rocket to come
I'm just a curbside prophet
with my hand in my pocket
and I'm for my rocket Yall
Hey

Well then you'll never, never guess
where I've been, been, been
and I have no regrets
that I bet my whole checking account
because it all amounts up to nothin' in the end
well you can only count that on the road again
it will soon be on my radio dial
and I've been payin' close attention to the Willie Nelsa style
like a band of gypsies on the highway wild
cause I'm a one man mission
on the California skyline
drive up the coast
I brag and I boast
because I'm picken' up a pace
on a guitar-like space
raisin' a toast to the highway patrol
but to most my cruise-control's on coast
cause I'm torn around the nation
on extended vacation
see I got Elsa the dog
who exceeds my limitations
I say,
"I like your style crazy pound pup,
You need a ride
well come on girl
hop in the trunk

Chorus

See I'm a down-cold brother
redneck under cover
with my guitar here I'm ready to play
and I'm a sucker for a Phillie
got a natural ability
give the free-style
look at my flexibility
dangerous on the mic
my ghetto hat's cocked right
all the ladies say,
"Yo that kid is crazy
We got the backstage
betties gettin' more than they can get
they say, "what's up with M-R-A-Z

Hey, Hey, Hey
Something's different in my world today
well they changed the black traffic signs
to a bright yellow
Hey, Hey
something's different in my world today
well the changed the black traffic signs
to a bright yellow
I'm just a curbside brother love
curbside brother love
Oh just curbside brother love
Fading
