Road Man
Smash Mouth Lyrics

Road man driving in the road van
He's got to beat the clock to the next town
Road man driving in the road van
I set up the sound system for the band
Road man slow it down
And you will get there safe and sound
He says no no no the show must go on
Road man driving like a mad man
Breaking land speed records in the van
Road man he don't mind police man
Leaving a trail of ripped up citations
Road man heavy load
He's got to stop and smell the rose
Road man he says no go
I've got to be the king of the road
Road man didn't see the train man
Until it was too late to slow the van
Meanwhile the band is waiting for the Road man
Who was crushed by his beloved sound system

This song's hilarious and love the reggae vibe. Sucks how most people ONLY know Smashmouth for All Star and I'm A Believer, but forget what a cool 90s band they were with all the cool songs from their first 2 CDs.

Xander Mall

after that they did not realy care anymore.

Hello YOUTUBE..! I'm the Gentleman that this Song is Written about..! Greg Camp from Smash Mouth Original Guitarist/Primary Song Writer for the Band gave me the name back in 1994, then Wrote & Dedicated the Song in My behalf on January 29, 1997 then Smash Mouth but it on this 2nd Album of theirs...! If you listen to the Song closely you can figure the meaning of the Song....   Key words are at end of Song... "I get Crashed by my Beloved Sound System.. ie like a "CAPTAIN going down w/ His Ship...!

Dude. That's insane. I've loved this band since I was 6 and I'm 21 now. They've been such a great vibe

Gabe García
