Godzilla Stomp

This is written on a flyer for Congenial, which was in March of 1989, so I'm guessing that I wrote this in 1988. I'm not sure what caused me to write it, but it comes in handy occasionally when min0taur is leading a jam and running the changes on "Johnny B. Goode".

I don't think I've ever actually seen all of a Godzilla movie. I suppose I should...

Godzilla Stomp

Way across the ocean with the Japanese,
A green and scaly lizard slept beneath the seas
Until a nuclear test woke him up but good.
You see, he isn’t bad – he’s just misunderstood!
You know if you were him then you would do as well.
Now he’s doin’ the town and givin’ Tokyo hell!

I say Go, Godzilla, Go!
I say Go, Godzilla, Go!
I say Go, Godzilla, Go!
I say Go, Godzilla, Go!
I say Go, Godzilla Stomp!

Now he’s turnin’ Tokyo into a funeral pyre,
‘Cause nuclear halitosis gives you breath of fire.
Alarm bells are clanging now all over town,
But he would go away if you would shut them down.
All he really wants is just to get some sleep
Down there in his home beneath the briny deep.

I say Go, Godzilla, Go!
I say Go, Godzilla, Go!
I say Go, Godzilla, Go!
I say Go, Godzilla, Go!
I say Go, Godzilla Stomp!
