mission accomplished
by Todd Snider

Will Rogers said he never met a man he didn?t like
Wait, let me back up and make sure I got that right.
He might of liked every man he met, that?s true.
But he never said he liked every man that he knew.

I met a woman with a Midas touch,
I never could get her to touch very much.

I met a man of opportunity,
He never offered any of it to me.

I met a soldier at a recruit booth
Said he?d make a man out of me and stole my youth.

Working for a man who could not stop lying,
Drove us all off a cliff and called it flying.
That ain?t flying.

Most men flying seem to understand

That a man technically hasn?t flown ?til he lands
If you?re coming into land and you crash and die,
All you really did for sure was get too high.

You ever get too high?
No. Neither have I.
But I will have to, to prove to you guys
I?m so turned around I could calm up a riot.
Fighting for peace? That?s like screaming for quiet.

I don?t know what I?ve been told
Might meet a little fox in an atheist hole
I don?t know what I?ve been told
I don?t know what I?ve been told
I don?t know what I?ve been told
I don?t know for sure, I?ve just been told
