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 2010/07/06 13:57:23 (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.

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.

Trailers for sale or rent,
Rooms to let, fifty cent
No food, no phone, no pets
I ain't got no cigarettes
Two hours of pushin' broom
Buys an eight by twelve 4-bit room
I'm a man of means by no means....
King of the road.

To wonder which way I should go to find the answers....

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.

Michael Hoffman

A white sports coat and a pink carnation
I'm all dressed up for the dance
A white sports coat and a pink carnation
I'm all alone in romance


And in a similar cadence:
 
Who you been lovin' since I been gone?
A long tall man with a red coat on.
Good-for-nothing-baby you've been doing me wrong.
Who you been lovin' since I been gone?
Who you been lovin' since I been gone?



And further,

Today, I heard the awful news
Someone told the gospel truth
Said you've been running 'round
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
Divorce lawyers on my back

Single again!
Back on the streets again
The old bars ain't changed much
Just a new face or two
When you're out of touch

Single again!

My pappy said, "Son, you're gonna' drive me to drinkin'
If you don't stop drivin' that Hot Rod Lincoln"

Give 'em a little bit of vodka

We're going to Oklahoma

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

I'm a street walking cheetah with a heart full of napalm
I'm a runaway son of the nuclear A-bomb
I am a world's forgotten boy
The one who searches and destroys
Honey gotta help me please
Somebody gotta save my soul
Baby detonate for me
