Lyrics

This is a story of a man I know from Crivitz
He walked across the bridge and tried to count the rivets
And when he lost count about the halfway mark
He had to start over with a flashlight in the dark

The rivets in the dark did a number on his head
They made some creepy bumpy shadows and his batteries went dead
The moon wasn’t shinin’ and he didn’t want to fail
He shimmied up the girders and he counted them like brail

17,721, 17,722, 17,723
I think you get the gist of this
It’s not trigonometry

Some people say that Mr. Crivitz is a fool
But can you learn about the water if you don’t jump in the pool
You can go online to get the job done
But if you Google everything you do, you miss out on the fun

17,721, 17,722, 17,723
I think you get the gist of this
Would you get the spider off of me

17,721, 17,722, 17,723
I think you get the gist of this
I think somebody’s texting me

This is a story of a man I know from Crivitz
