Little Jimmy, on his way to school..
And he thinks that..that everyone is cool.
And momma packs a lunchbox that's gray.
'Cause he'll be old, too, someday.
Yeah, he'll be old someday.
--Mr. Pants "Weird Chord"
Baby's hair, bulgin' eyes, lips so thick.
Are you woman, are you man?
I'm your biggest funked-up fan.
So rock me and roll me 'till I'm sick!
--Candy Slice "Gimme Mick"
Cecil gives me coffee
And he won't never take my coin
I say, " I got thirty dollars in my pocket! Whatchoo doin' ? "
I holler, " Come on, Cecil, take a dollar!
Come on, Cecil, take a ten!
I've finally geared up into a whole buncha big ones
And you're actin' like I'm down-shiftin' "
Rickie Lee Jones "Danny's All-Star Joint"
I was drunk when I met you,
I was drunk when you walked out the door.
And I rode around all night just to find you,
Guess you never knew.
--Mojave 3 "Yer Feet"
And anything that Willie Dixon ever wrote.
How perfectly goddamned delightful it all is, to be sure.
