The Rock

Harry Chapin

The rock is gonna fall on us, he woke with a start
And he ran to his mother, the fear dark in his heart

She said: "go back to sleep son, you're having a bad dream!"

They knew he was insane so they left him alone
He'd given up enlisting help for there was no one else
He spent his days devising ways to stop the rock himself
