The Back Road from Rancho Mirage.
High above the desert floor on this road you will glide.
High above the desert floor it’s a spectacular ride.
High above the desert floor one can see forevermore.
By this road find the glory where you locate the door.
But…, a hundred and twenty degree “F” is pretty darn hot.
And this place seems unforgiving for your head to pop.
So if you climb this road in the dead heat of summer,
Best ensure your cooling systems nots’to be a bummer.
