TOP TEN FAVORITE SONG LYRICS

And I need you more than want you
And I want you for all time
And the Wichita Lineman is still on the line.

“Wichita Lineman” by Jimmy Webb



I was Rambo in the disco
I was shootin’ to the beat
When they burned me in effigy
My vacation was complete.

“Mideast Vacation” by Neil Young



She left me for Jesus and that just ain’t fair.
She says that he’s perfect, how could I compare?
She says I should find him and I’ll know peace at last.
If I ever find Jesus, I’m kickin’ his ass.

“She left me for Jesus” by Carll Hayes



Conversation with you was like a drug.
It wasn’t your face so much as it was your words.
Cause there’s something about what happens when we talk.
Something about what happens when we talk.

“Something about what happens when we talk” by Lucinda Williams


I would rock my soul in the bosom of Abraham.
I would hold my life in his saving grace.
I would walk all the way from Boulder to Birmingham
If I thought I could see, I could see your face.

“Boulder to Birmingham” by Bill Danoff and Emmylou Harris


Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say
Hey, you’ve got to hide your love away
Hey, you’ve got to hide your love away

“You’ve Got to Hide Your Love Away” by John Lennon and Paul McCartney


Well now I stand on my own two feet.
My face hits the dirt, that’s my heart in the street.
Jesus Christ. Can’t we do anything right?
What’s the matter with you?
What’s the matter with me?
Heart in the Street.

“Heart in the Street” by Tom Gray



The moon, the sun, and all the rest

The loving son, the faithful wife

The burnt out wreck of a poor man's life

The father, son, and holy ghost

They all turned away love when they needed it most

It's the last ride

Their little game is over


"The Last Ride" by Todd Rundgren



Waiting for a girl and her knees are much too fat
Waiting for a girl who wears scarves instead of hats
Her zipper's broken down the back
Waiting for a factory girl

"Factory Girl" by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.



Sit on the back porch and wonder 'bout her
What is she doing right now?
Making somebody a happier man
Dying her hair back to brown

"Dirty Girl" by Mark Oliver Everett



I've already gotten some great responses. Open the comments to see them.

Nice package



The debate continues: Is Obama's stimulus package too big or not big enough?

More Bumper Sticker Ideas

I was driving home today, the weather was great, and while waiting for a light, I noticed the following bumper sticker on the car in front of me:

My Dog Is Smarter Than Your Honor Roll Student.

No way! Without opposable thumbs and human speech, there is no chance a dog, no matter how intelligent, could outperform an honor roll student. But of course, the bumper sticker was less about sticking to the facts than being thought provoking. And it inspired me to come up with some new bumper sticker ideas.


MY DOG IS NOT SMARTER THAN YOUR HONOR ROLL STUDENT,
BUT HE'LL NEVER BREAK MY HEART BY RUNNING OFF WITH SOME TRAMP.


SENTIENT BEING ON BOARD


THIS CAR IS SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN OF ALL AGES


IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE DRIVING TO SCHOOL?


DOES YOUR MOTHER KNOW YOU DRIVE WITH THAT MOUTH?


UNLESS YOU'RE TALKING TO JESUS,
HANG UP AND DRIVE.


I DIDN'T USE MY TURN SIGNAL BECAUSE
I WAS TOO BUSY TEXTING MY BFF THAT
I WAS CHANGING LANES.


TAILGATING IS NOT A SEXUAL POSITION.

Road to inauguration. Journey's end.


Obama is sworn in and the country rejoices!




Meanwhile...Bush doesn't get the welcome home reception in Texas that he expected.

Road to inauguration. Almost the end of Obama's journey.


Obama mulls over Hillary's desire for the Secretary of State to have more power.




Meanwhile... Bush's approval ratings wouldn't be at such historic lows if the country only knew how much he loved to rock out with his cock out.

Road to inauguration. Part 15


Some of the things keeping Obama awake at night: The Trillion Dollar Deposit, The Growing Unemployment, and The Mideast Violence.



Meanwhile...Bush stares fondly at a photo of Karl Rove and remembers all the fun they had helping create the things that keep Obama up at night.



And...Cheney reveals to the world that not only does he have a gay lover, he recycles as well. (Don't you wish it were true.)
