You've been sleeping in a field but you look real rested
You set out to outrage but you can't get arrested
You say your image is new, but it looks well tested
You're lost without a crowd yet you go your own way

You say your summer has gone
Now the winter is crawlin' in
They say that even in your day
Somehow you never could quite fit in
Though it's cold outside
I know the summer's gonna come again
Because you know what they say
Every dog has his day

You're a misfit, afraid of yourself so you run away and hide
You've been a misfit all your life
Why don't you join the crowd
And come inside
You wander round this town like you've lost your way
You had your chance in your day
Yet you threw it all away
But you know what they say
Every dog has his day

Look at all the losers and the mad eyed gazers
Look at all the loonies and the sad eyed failures
They've given up living 'cos they just don't care
So take a good look around
The misfits are everywhere
La la la la la la

This is your chance, this is your time
So don't throw it away
You can have your day
'Cause it's true what they say
Every dog has his day

You're a misfit
Afraid of yourself so you run away and hide
You've been a misfit all your life
But why don't you join the crowd and come inside
You wander round this town
Like you've lost your way
You had your chance in your day
Yet you threw it all away
Now you're lost in the crowd

Up in that new space station
Living Kennedy's dream
There was an automatic camera
Shooting elephantine.

Well the crew was relaxing
Before the video screen
Watching old re-runs
Of Mohammed Ali.

The voice of Houston callin'
Brought them back to the scene
Except the sky is fallin'
Do you know what that means?

Out on that Texas sidewalk
Through the hotel mezzanine
There walked a see-thru' hooker
To a suite with two TVs.

But by the elevator
She began to sneeze
With an attack so uncontrolled
It brought her to her knees.

And then the hotel doctor
With nurse and stethoscope
Announced the worst is over
But for her there is no hope.

Way down in South Dakota
On the Needles Highway
There's a lone red rider
On the road today.

And though his war is over
He's fightin' on anyway
Although he's seldom sober
He's drinking whisky all day.

Down in that old box canyon
Where only misfits can go
He rides with no companion
But saloon and rodeo.

Up in that new space station
Living Kennedy's dream
There's an automatic camera
Shooting elephantine.

Well the crew is relaxing
Before the video screen
Watching old re-runs
Of Mohammed Ali.

The voice of Houston callin'
Brought them back to the scene
Except the sky is fallin'
Do you know what that means?
