On The Yellow Brick Road

Updated: Jun 30

copyright 2020 dalekiddlyrics.com



On the train to downtown

just another day

Sit at a computer

and rot my life away

Coffee in the lunchroom

sugar, double cream

Eyes burnt out staring

at a fibre-optic screen

Can’t do this ’til sixty

I'm not you Mister Toad

Time to leave Dodge City

on the Yellow Brick Road

Office in the corner

camera on the wall

Handcuffed to a pay cheque

no longer standing tall

Best-before-date passed by

challenges long gone

Body getting softer

man up move along

Can’t be here ’til sixty

I'm not a Mister Toad

Time to leave Dodge City

on the Yellow Brick Road

Now my mind is made up

swap out grind for play

Robot in the rear view

productive every day


Adios nine to five

farewell month-end stats

New day on horizon

no wearing all the hats

Won’t do this ’til sixty

I'm not like Mister Toad

Time to leave Dodge City

on the Yellow Brick Road


Bought a farm outside town

cattle, hens, a horse

Up at dawn and love it

on rolling hills by gorse

Coffee on the front porch

without sugar, cream

Working hands and fresh air

Mother Nature's Dream

Lease on life past sixty

so long Mister Toad

I escaped Dodge City

on the Yellow Brick Road

Lease on life past sixty

so long Mister Toad

I escaped Dodge City

on the Yellow Brick Road
