I could only think of a couple of songs with the prompt, and they were already taken, so I went looking and found this one. Hadn’t heard it before myself, but I like it a lot. Maybe you will, too, even though it’s pretty much hard rock. I have no idea what the meaning of the lyrics are.

This song’s music sure reminds me of  Blackfoot’s “Train Train” song, which is a great song, too. It has lots of deep bass notes, which I like a lot. Years ago I saved my money and bought an electric bass guitar. My friends and I were going to start a band. Nice to have dreams, but nothing ever came of it. I did finally sell my bass to another friend, and he went on to actually have a band. 🙂

“The Lizard”, by Saigon Kick, is from their 1992 studio album of the same name. It was written and performed by Jason Bieler and Matt Kramer, and is on the Third Stone/Atlantic labels.

When I tell you people to do the lizard,
Pull yourself together and take a listen
Take my flask and sip the liquid
Forgive me now for what I might deliver

Look around

All around

Lick your friends until they start to quiver
I ask myself if to give is richer

Look around

All around

Save yourself from falling down, all around
There’s no chance you can be found underground

The Lizard….

There’s a thing we say about the foolish wisher
Just do the dance and become the Lizard

Look around

All around

Save yourself from falling down, all around
There’s no chance you can be found underground

The Lizard….
