Hal R mashes
Burning peels into ashes
Tots of 'taters
Chives and sour creme but it misses
Butter lasting
Melts into crevices of illusion

Shall we try, you and I, potatoes from a can?
With the famine or windfall of harvest

Skin washers
Eating them will make you fatter
Arteries clogging
To cholosterol levels rising
Deadicated
Procedes into farts in my eye

Shall we try, you and I, potatoes from a can?

Gypsy Soul

Gypsy Soul

Twenty 7, Xmas eve, with the full moon over town
Gypsy Soul sang to Oroboros while wearing a big frown
Do ya know she sang to him what do you make of that
'Cause Oroboros is a slick guy who ain't even a bit fat

Oh joe, oh joe, tell me where is the bowl
You ate all the cereal that was bought for Gypsy Soul
Gypsy Soul is a mad woman, don't wanna eat no bread
Joe go buy more Trix, and fill up the bowl

deadicated, deadicated oh sweet deadicated D
How the hell can I stop him, when he's twice as fat as me
Well don't ask me Trix Are For Kids, I don't feel so fine
Not only that, another thing, I GOT NO LYME

Oh joe, deadic said, just give me one
You ate all her cereal now she's gonna see you hung
He waded to the market through Count Chocula's blood
Stepped up to Gypsy Soul in the aisle, said give me a bowl full, love

As Gypsy Soul lit a cigarette, she made some calls
Blew the smoke in his face, dragged him out by the balls
Oh joe, oh joe, we'll see you hang high
You ate all my cer-e-al and now I've got to DYE

She went a-walking down on Shakedown Street
Three piece band on the corner played M - A - R - Y - E
But we ate some different cereal, what cereal could it be
The cereal that woman ate was bought by Tiger Lilly
The cereal that woman ate was bought by Tiger Lilly

Me and Tiger Lilly

Me And Tiger Lilly

Busted out of Barcelona riding on a train
Feeling nearly faded as her dress
Tiger Lilly ate some paella just before the rain
Farted all the way to Fi-guer-es

Well I took my old cassette from my dirty sack
Playin' slow while Lilly sang the blues
Stinky farts keeping time
Holding Lilly's spirit in mine
We finallly sang near every song that we knew

The Board's just another place to think about The Scene
The Board can cheer you up -- if you know what I mean
The internet is easy Lord, when there ain't no tour
The Board is good enough for me
Good enough for me and Tiger Lilly

With the kind, grateful folks; rapin' here is fun
Lilly shared the secrets of my soul
Standing right beside me Lord in everything I done
Lilly's spirit kept me from the cold
Nowhere never on this Board, I'll let her slip her away
Looking for memories I hope we'll find
And I'll trade all my straight friends for a single head
To be sharing Lilly's spirit, oh so KIND

The Board's just another place to think about The Scene
The Board can cheer you up -- if you know what I mean
The Internet is easy Lord, when there ain't no tour
The Board is good enough for me
Good enough for me and Tiger Lilly

It Must Have Been the Doses

It Must Have Been The Doses

CC j grew his hair down to his toe-ses
He had scabies, lice, and fleas in his long black hair
I don't know, maybe it was the doses
All I know, he couldn't give a care

I don't know, it must have been the doses
The doses and the scabies in his long brown hair
I don't know, maybe it was the doses
All I know, was he took them all there

Ten sheets of blotter rolled up and got for free
Sounds echo in his ear like a cool symphony
If I take another, whaddaya think will happen to me?
Let me take some more doses and float me out to sea

I don't know, it must have been the doses
The doses and the scabies in his long brown hair
I don't know, maybe it was the doses
All I know, was he took them all there

One brown tab, put him in limbo
Everyone's complaining, though, 'come on, we want some more
Memories fade from shadows and now it's all lore
And it's strange how no one doses any more

I don't know, it must have been the doses
The doses and the scabies in his long brown hair
I don't know, maybe it was the doses
All I know, was he took them all there

a soft machine

a 'machine' is talking about a political group, or a group of politicos who have a lot of power. Tammany Hall is one from somewhere in the 19th century.

a soft machine, would mean a weak or not so influential political power structure, I think. or maybe I am wrong about that completely, that is the way I too the words.

peace.

Dallas, got a soft blue sheen

15 yrs of hearing this toon & I thought Dallas had some kick ass neon blue lights, which caused a "sheen"
What the hell is a "soft machine" ?

St. Stephen (mis-lyrics)

CharlieBoBarley

I always thought the lyrics were ..."With hair so long, he's got to calling it home!"

I guess I was picturing St. Stephen as a very long-haired hippie...

..."Been here so long" somehow makes much more sense (even to a hippie)!

Bob, your other half's not alone. That's what I thought it was for a long time...

Conversation is always more interesting than recitation, so speak your mind and not someone else's.
