Your Mama's yappin' in the back seat
Tell her to push over and move them big feet
Every Monday morning I gotta drive her down to the unemployment agency
Well this morning I ain't fighting tell her I give up
Tell her she wins if she'll just shut up
But it's the last time that she's gonna be riding with me

      Without Cheating who wrote these:
      I'm crazy
      crazy for feeling so lonely
      I'm crazy
      crazy for feeling so blue

      Alot of people have no idea who wrote them....Russ

          My Theme Song Tue, 07/6/10 1:57 PM (permalink)
          Sing it Willie!!!

          Well I gotta get drunk and I sure do dread it
          Cuz I know just what I'm gonna do
          I'll start to spend my money callin' everybody honey
          And I'll wind up singin' the blues
          I'll spend my whole paycheck on some old wreck
          And brother I can name you a few
          Well I gotta get drunk and I sure do dread it
          Cuz I know just what I'm gonna do

          I gotta get drunk, I just can't stay sober
          There's a lot of good people in town
          Who like to see me holler, see me spend my dollar
          And I wouldn't dream of lettin' 'em down
          There's a lot of doctors tell me
          That I'd better start slowing it down
          But there's more old drunks than there are old doctors
          So I guess we'd better have another round

            Early morning love,
            Around about the time the sun comes up.
            Early morning love,
            The kind of love you just can’t get enough.

             

             

            (I love that this is played at 8:00 am every Saturday

            morning on DC's last and great jazz station, WPFW-FM.)

              ...and whom also penned this great opener:

               

              The sun is filled with ice and gives no warmth at all.
              The skies were never blue.
              The stars are raindrops searching for a place to fall.
              And I never cared for you.

               

               

              (A great version of which is sung by Deke Dickerson

              and which is listenable online here.)

                The postman delivered
                A past due bill notice
                The alarm clock rang two hours late
                The garbage man left all the trash
                On the sidewalk

                    George Gobel, black and white TV, years ago:

                    My girl lives on a mountaintop,
                    but I can't go to see her cause it's too far to walk,
                    and the mule is sick.

                      ahhhhhhhhh the words to those beautiful old songs..... brings back that unanswered question again and again, where on the females anatomy is a woman's "now"....???  ... as in that song "I wonder who's kissing her now"

                        Definitely NOT the one who was
                        "Kissing her dimples and touching her toes"

                        and her now was never there...

                          Well, I'm not going to get into specifics, but when I was kissing her now it was mighty tasty.

                                        Four pages of posts and nobody mentioned this???

                                        You broke my heart
                                        Cause I couldn't dance
                                        You wouldn't even
                                        Let me alone
                                        But now I'm back
                                        To let you know
                                        I can really shake 'em down...

                                          Two of my favorite vocalists once sang a duet in Vegas-----
                                          Frank Sinatra sang "My Way"
                                          while Peggy Lee added in (on cue) her song "Is That All There Is?".

                                          Went something like this---

                                          FS---For what is a man, what has he got?

                                          PL---Is that all there is, is that all there is?
                                          If that's all there is my friend, then let's keep dancing.

                                          And the place broke up.

                                              Did you ever see Dallas
                                              From a DC9 at night?
                                              Dallas is a jewel,
                                              Dallas is a beautiful sight.
                                              And Dallas is a jungle,
                                              but it sure gives off
                                              a beautiful light.

                                                Good-for-nothing-baby you've been doing me wrong.

                                                With a stranger who just hit town

                                                He's got a black mustache
                                                And a red Cadillac
                                                Now he's got you
                                                And I've got two

                                                      Living on the road my friend
                                                      Was gonna keep you free and clean
                                                      Now you wear your skin like iron
                                                      Your breath's as hard as kerosene
                                                      You weren't your mama's only boy
                                                      But her favorite one it seems
                                                      She began to cry when you said goodbye
                                                      And sank into your dreams
