The compass has lost it way
For some a sun setting day
Living the moments thru magical lens
Hit the road in a Mercedes Benz
Shake a tail feather and go loop-de-loop
A sodapop world with a double dip scoop
Diners with a cuppa and culinary treats
Makes you wanna stay an take a seat
Memories to keep for show and tell
Life’s a hoot and downright swell
Turn by turn with lots of kicks
Memories fading in tattered pics
Gone is the legend, Route 66
