a miracle, it was beautiful, magical
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily, joyfully, playfully, watching me
But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible, logical, responsible, practical
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable, clinical, intellectual, cynical
There are times when all the world's asleep
The questions run too deep for such a simple man
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd but please tell me who I am

I said now, watch what you say, now we're calling you a radical, a liberal, fanatical, criminal
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're acceptable, respectable, presentable, a vegetable

But at night, when all the world's asleep
The questions run so deep for such a simple man
Won't you please (Won't you tell me),(You can tell me what) please tell me what we've learned (Can you hear me?)
I know it sounds absurd,(Won't you help me) please tell me who I am, who I am, who I am, who I am

But I'm thinking so logical

Did you call, one two three four

It's getting unbelievable

Even being not so young anymore, I find life still very wonderful.
Sun rises in the east to start my day, and sets in the west saying good night... Moon and stars greet me at night, their celestial dance playing out before me.

Yep! Life is indeed wonderful!

Calling elvis - is anybody home
Calling elvis - I'm here all alone
Did he leave the building
Or can he come to the phone
Calling elvis - I'm here all alone

Well tell him I was calling just to wish him well
Let me leave my number - heartbreak hotel
Oh love me tender - baby dob't be cruel
Return to sender - treat me like a fool

Yeah... when I was young life was so great... I was beaten, molested by my "uncles", left on the streets to fend for myself at 12. I had a gun held to my head & a knife to my throat at 14.... Life was marvelous. I remember the Christmas that I only got socks for a gift...from the people who owned the motel I was staying in... I would live it all over again if I could, life was great. NOT!

Do you wanna be an angel
Do you wanna be a star
Do you wanna play some magic
On my guitar
Do you wanna be a poet
Do you wanna be my string
You could be anything

They said there'd be snow at Christmas

They said there'll be peace on Earth Hallelujah,

Noel, be it Heaven or Hell



The Christmas we get, we deserve

I got a Yamaha for Easter when I was 12, think I got my first share of Southern Company stock at $12 a share at 14,...



Got a 2 Door Cutlass Supreme and a learners permit at 15, Don't get me wrong I had to pay for the car,

And got to use that I wasn't given a car at 16 so blame Grandpa not me,...


so I guess since this is a song thread, I win,...

Forgot to mention that I go Pogo too. You're lucky to live in the Okefenokee Swamp. Who wouldn't be happy there?

Oh, yesterday when I was young
So many, many songs were waiting to be sung
So many wild pleasures lay in store for me
And so much pain my eyes refused to see
There are so many songs in me that won't be sung
I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue
The time has come for me to pay for yesterday
When I was young

Well it's set way back in the middle of a field,
Just a funky old shack and I gotta get back
Glitter on the mattress
Glitter on the highway
Glitter on the front porch
Glitter on the hallway
The Love Shack is a little old place where we can get together
Love Shack baby! Love Shack, that's where it's at!
Huggin' and a kissin', dancin' and a lovin', wearin' next to nothing
Cause it's hot as an oven
The whole shack shimmies! The whole shack shimmies when everybody's
Movin' around and around and around!
Everybody's movin', everybody's groovin' baby!
Folks linin' up outside just to get down
Everybody's movin', everybody's groovin' baby
Funky little shack! Funky little shack!

Hey, I'm crazy and never claimed to be otherwise. You don't like me? Tough turds! I am what I am and I'm not going to change to please you or anyone else. Some crazy shyte happened to me as a kid. I moved past it. If that makes me crazy so be it. I'm over it. The past is the past, why dwell on it?

Well, I went searchin' for an answer ... Up the stairs and down the hall ... And not to find an answer ... Just to hear the call Of a nightbird singing ... "Come away" ...

When I look back, boy I must have been green
Bopping in the country, fishing in a stream
Looking for an answer trying to find a sign
Until I saw your city lights honey I was blind

They said get back honky cat
Better get back to the woods
Well I quit those days and my redneck ways
And oh the change is gonna do me good

I think you're freakin' awesome Shady Bits. I'm glad you know who you are and don't care what others think of you. The haters are on full attack today. Stay Cool S.B.

Why pour it out on the ground if you are over it, get help because I can assure you I'm not real nice once I have warned someone to keep their crap away from me, same as drunk posting to me is right above hard luck stories.

Office girls, they pass me by
They don't know my name
Put me on the danger list
Just too wild to tame ...

Take the drinks off of the table
Throw my guitar out the door
Set my sights on some new sunrise
Help my feet to the floor ...
