EASY TARGET

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


            I.  in the jungle,
                different drummers
                are beating a path.
                follow traffic,
                follow traffic
                until you are paid.
                like a rider
                on a railroad,
                hide in your caboose --
                while explorers
                face the horrors
                of a life with no truce.

       CHORUS:  for success
                pick an easy target.
                watch out,
                you're an easy target, too.

           II.  land rovers
                in formation
                head for distant lands
                gold nuggets
                are waiting
                in desert sands.
                they smash your window,
                smash your window
                and ride away.
                you roll by in your cage.
                you can't stop or turn around.

                (repeat chorus)

       ENDING:  you raise a finger
                to eccentrics
                that you leave behind.
                "quit complaining,
                Mr. Gandhi.
                get with the program,
                Dr. King."
                for success,
                pick an easy target.

                (repeat final sentence several times)
