Dispatch - Bang Bang Lyrics

She woke me up with a bang, bang
Looking over cross-eyed
Had a big hunch that the world was a big lie
When I got up all the blood to my head
I got so dizzy fell back into my bed

I went over to the way side
Looking for the high tide
What will I find, will I find, will I find, find?
All I saw was a man that had a hat that had a pom-pom
He's been there for years
Can someone tell me how long

Wake up to tell me
Wake up to show me
What I could not find

Wake up to tell me
Wake up to show me
What I could not find

You see this woman woke me up
At a quarter to three
And I didn't know it then
But she put a spell on me
Said, "I had to go down to where the cliffs meet the sea
And meet an old man to present my plea

So I headed way down to the big pier (the big pier)
To await and confront my big fear (my big fear)
I wheeled around behind to my blindside
To find an old man with a lime and a kind eye

Said, "Mister, mister, with your beard so long
Won't you be a saint and tell me
Just where I'm going."
He pointed to a conch shell and then to the lime
And said, "This is all I really need to get by."

Wake up to tell me
Wake up to show me
What I could not find

Wake up to tell me
Wake up to show me
What I could not find

Hey, mister man
I know you don't know
Who you think I, think I am
But I can safely say,
That I should've been sleeping, been sleeping, been sleeping, been sleeping the day away
(someone pull down the shade)

I said, "'scuse me, have you got the time?"
He shrugged his shoulders
Said, "Get a spine.
Coconut hit me on the head
Jonesin' for a fig
I got booked last night
I need another fix, dick."

Just then I see a twinkle twinkle in the old man's eye
And a wave tossed bottle is thrown to the sky

I caught it on the rebound
It landed with a soft sound
I took out the message,
Put the bottle down

Inside was the antidote to the spell
And I read it to the man
'Cause he couldn't read so well
Said, "Don't worry about a thing
You know your path is true
Just ease your mind
Have a banana or two."

Well, goodness, goodness, woe is me
The man nearly flipped to learn that he was free
But just before we left and started kicking it
I picked up the bottle and star sixed it

Kick kick shuffle shuffle back to the beach
With a tune on my lips and my quest in reach

If that woman comes to you with her song so sweet,
Say, "Damn! Let the poor sucker sleep."

Let him sleep

Wake up to tell me
Wake up to show me
What I could not find

Wake up to tell me
Wake up to show me
What I could not find

  24. Ozenoz Media

    I am at this classic moment. Classically trained trumpet for 8 years, piano player 10 years, guitar thousands of hours, rapper five thousand years in a few. Writer, videographer, yes I am a comedian and an artist. you can c ozenoz.media. I am at that jumping off point like, hell ya but I am gun shy. This song resonates as betwixt message with tour of qualms/duty...

    Ozenoz Media

    It is jam rap so "Let the poor sucker r.i.p. ?!!"

    hey I will subscribe if Dispatch considers letting me remix one of their songs. Lets make it interesting. Let Dispatch pick the song they would allow me to remix and I'll blow your freaking minds....sound like fun? if you wanna hear me I'm www.soundcloud.com/nicky-stax.
    I've been listening to Dispatch ever since I heard the general and feel they are hugely under-appreciated. Would love to be a part of their up rise.


    Nicky Stax


    For this request, I would consider commenting on Dispatch's own YouTube channel, or other social media outlets. Best of luck!
