The Valley of Malls
Written by C. Collingwood / A. Schlesinger


From the Fountains of Wayne album Utopia Parkway

The King of Araby is coming home 
It's bumper touching bumper on the motorway 
The sun is in the sky just now 
But the road is grey 
They drive in Winnebagos from the Everglades 
Pulled over by the troopers in the mirror shades 
The Caravan is sorry 
The driver has a twenty and change 

And we're leaving all the road for dead 
We're getting tired of the twists and turns 
You gotta go when human nature calls 
We're driving, we're driving 
Through the valley of malls 

And God forgive the passengers if we should fail 
To find a penny fountain of a half-off sale 
I need a merchant 
I've just started searching for the Holy Grail 
Fighting for the freedom from a common bond 
To be a barracuda in the guppy pond 
So little time for so many things to try on 

And we're leaving all the road for dead 
We're getting tired of the twists and turns 
You gotta go when human nature calls 
We're driving, we're driving 
Through the valley of malls
