the Beach Boys. I think it is their guest appearances on Full House when I was a kid that make me equate them with cheesedicks.

Brian Wilson is a genius.

I am just a poor boy
Though my story's seldom told
I have squandered my resistance
For a pocketful of mumbles
Such are promises
All lies and jest
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest
When I left my home and my family
I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the quiet of the railway station
Running scared
Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
Where the ragged people go
Looking for the places only they would know
Lie la lie, lie la lie la lie la lie
Lie la lie, lie la lie la lie la lie, la la lie la lie
Asking only workman's wages
I come looking for a job
But I get no offers
Just a come-on from the ###### on Seventh Avenue
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
Now the years are rolling by me
They are rocking evenly
And I am older than I once was
And younger than I'll be
But that's not unusual
No, it isn't strange
After changes upon changes
We are more or less the same
After changes we are
More or less the same
Lie la lie, lie la lie la lie la lie
Lie la lie, lie la lie la lie la lie, la la lie la lie
Lie la lie, lie la lie la lie la lie
Lie la lie, lie la lie la lie la lie, la la lie la lie
Then I'm laying out my winter clothes
Wishing I was gone
Going home
Where the New York City winters aren't bleeding me
Leading me
To going home
In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of every glove that laid him down
And cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
But the fighter still remains, he's still remains

When we drink, we get drunk.
When we get drunk, we fall asleep.
When we fall asleep, we commit no sin.
When we commit no sin, we go to heaven.
So, let's all get drunk, and go to heaven!


For I knew that topless lady had something up her sleeve

"...I just naturally assumed I could drive"
-Big Finish by Todd Snider

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-WoUfkU66g

Full Lyrics:

Take your time, tell me slow. Should I stay?
And we both know you thought you knew what I was just about to say
But you didn’t know, and you always think you do
I’ll tell you, I been looking back over my shoulder
It’s not you that I’ve got to blame
If I could do this all over, I wouldn’t do nothing the same

[Chorus]
It seemed like the right thing at the time
It seemed like the right thing at the time

I try to remember, it helps me forget, The older I get
The older I get, the more I worry, That the more I worry, the older I get and yet, I still worry
Ain’t that about a son of a #####, I tell you
Some people can’t take no for an answer
Some people can’t even take yes for an answer
I can’t say for sure how I end up here, but if I had to guess, I guess

[Chorus]
It seemed like the right thing at the time
It seemed like the right thing at the time

Tryin’ to find some kinda way to cope, You’ve got to admit
It ain’t the despair that gets you, it’s the hope
When I found myself in possession of these car keys
I just naturally assumed that I could drive

John Hiatt, Icy Blue Heart

She came onto him like a slow movin' cold front
His beer was warmer than the look in her eyes
She sat on a stool, he said, "What do you want?"
She said, "Give me a love that don't freeze up inside."
He said, "I have melted some hearts in my time, dear
But to sit next to you, lord, I shiver and shake
And if I knew love, well, I don't think I'd be here
Askin' myself if I've got what it takes."
To melt your icy blue heart
Should I start
To turn what's been frozen for years
Into a river of tears?
"These days we all play cool, calm, and collected
Why, our lips could turn blue just shooting the breeze."
But under the frost, well, he thought he detected
A warm blush of red and a touch of her knee
He said, "Girl, you're a beauty like I've never witnessed
And I've seen the Northern Lights dance in the air
But I've felt the cold that can follow the first kiss
And there's not enough heat in the fires burning there."
To melt your icy blue heart
Should I start
To turn what's been frozen for years
Into a river of tears?

This one cracks me up. First time I thought the song was about some dark morbid shizz. Turns out the guy just had a crazy axx goth girlfriend he needed to dump.

Can't go out cause her roots are showing? Her perfume smells like burning leaves? That's pure poetry.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFwYJYl5GUQ


She's in love with herself
She likes the dark
On her milk white neck
The Devil's mark
It's all Hallows Eve
The moon is full
Will she trick or treat
I bet she will
She's got date at midnight
With Nosferatu
Oh baby, Lilly Munster
Ain't got nothing on you
Well when I called her evil
She just laughed
And cast that spell on me
Boo bit ch Craft
Yeah you want to go out 'cause it's raining and blowing
You can't go out 'cause your roots are showing
Dye em black
Black no. 1
Little wolf skin boots
And clove cigarettes
An ero tic funeral
For witch she's dressed
Her perfume smells like
Burning leaves
Everyday is Halloween
Loving you was like loving the dead

is kinda like 'which grain of sand on the beach is the sandiest' but one I heard yesterday in the car that never fails to amaze me in terms of its construction is Don McLean's American Pie. Its an epic poem set to music and far deeper than merely just the nostalgia for his musical heroes. Maybe a bit overplayed across the airwaves throughout its history, but still an undisputable example of songwriting excellence.

Looking for a man makes them opportunistic

See him wasted on the sidewalk, in his jacket and his jeans
Wearin' yesterday's misfortunes like a smile
Once he had a future, full of money love and dreams
Which he spent like they was goin' out o' style

And he keeps right on a'changin', for the better or the worse
Searchin' for a shrine he's never found
Never knowin' if believin', is a blessin' or a curse
Or if the goin' up was worth, the comin' down

He's a poet, an' he's a picker, he's a prophet, an' he's a pusher
He's a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he's stoned
He's a walkin' contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction
Takin' ev'ry wrong direction on his lonely way back home

He has tasted good and evil, in your bedrooms and your bars
And he's traded in tomorrow for today
Runnin' from his devils Lord, and reachin' for the stars
And losin' all he loved, along the way

But if this world keeps right on turnin', for the better or the worse
And all he ever gets is older and around
From the rockin' of the cradle, to the rollin' of the hearse
The goin' up was worth, the comin' down

He's a poet, an' he's a picker, he's a prophet, an' he's a pusher
He's a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he's stoned
He's a walkin' contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction
Takin' ev'ry wrong direction on his lonely way back home

There's a lot of wrong directions, on that lonely way back home
