Just Like That

(Words and Music by Mike Charko and Keith Shields - SOCAN 2011)
Listen to the recording of this song here.

I sat down on my front step
And I strummed my old guitar
I wrote a song to make you laugh
I knew it would go far


Usher saw me playing there
He said, "You're gonna be a star."
He signed me up to play The Bowl
And gave me a new car


Well I know you might think I'm a fool
Or maybe it's not true
But it all really happened just like that
In my mind


I climbed up on my white horse
And I went to ride the range
A pretty woman in distress
So I galloped to her aid


The bad guys tried to get away
But I wouldn't let them run
My draw was quick and my aim was true
And they lowered down their guns


Well I know you might think I'm a fool
Or maybe it's not true
But it all really happened just like that
In my mind


Spiderman and the Man of Steel
They are some friends of mine
They call me up wanna buy me drinks
But I haven't got the time


Paparazzi follow me
Cause they think that I'm so fine
I'd like to pose for one or two
But Jagger's on the line


Well I know you might think I'm a fool
Or maybe it's not true
But it all really happened just like that
In my mind


Don't worry I'm alright
I'm not crazy or anything
I'm not crazy or anything
I'm not crazy or anything


Well I know you might think I'm a fool
Or maybe it's not true
But it all really happened just like that
In my mind

In my mind
In my mind

  1. I really like this one Dad! I listened to it last night on your myspace page. Good work, I'm impressed that you fit both "Usher" and "Jagger" into a song :)
