There Goes Bob Three
Words and music by Bobby Angel

There goes Bob 3.
Listen closely to the ivory bill weep, in the middle of the night it will bring you to your feet. Tip toe to the window, then listens to the crickets cheep. They say go where your going, take what you wanna keep

Now there goes Bob the Third.

Nothing comes for free,
And now there goes Bob T.

There goes Bob 3D
