    Dead Skunk - Loudon Wainwright III

    Crossin' the highway late last night
    He shoulda looked left and he shoulda looked right
    He didn't see the station wagon car
    The skunk got squashed and there you are!

    You got yer
    Dead skunk in the middle of the road
    Dead skunk in the middle of the road
    You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road
    Stinkin' to high Heaven!

    Take a whiff on me, that ain't no rose!
    Roll up yer window and hold yer nose
    You don't have to look and you don't have to see
    'Cause you can feel it in your olfactory

    You got yer
    Dead skunk in the middle of the road
    Dead skunk in the middle of the road
    You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road
    Stinkin' to high Heaven!

    Yeah you got yer dead cat and you got yer dead dog
    On a moonlight night you got yer dead toad frog
    Got yer dead rabbit and yer dead raccoon
    The blood and the guts they're gonna make you swoon!
    You got yer
    Dead skunk in the middle of the road
    Dead skunk in the middle of the road
    You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road
    Stinkin' to high Heaven!

    C'mon stink!

    You got it!
    It's dead, it's in the middle
    Dead skunk in the middle!
    Dead skunk in the middle of the road
    Stinkin' to high heaven!
    All over the road, technicolor man!
    Oh, you got pollution
    It's dead, it's in the middle
    And it's stinkin' to high, high Heaven!




    Best lyric of all time?

    No.

    This is:

    What's he building in there?
    What the hell is he building
    In there?
    He has subscriptions to those
    Magazines... He never
    Waves when he goes by
    He's hiding something from
    The rest of us... He's all
    To himself... I think I know
    Why... He took down the
    Tire swing from the Peppertree
    He has no children of his
    Own you see... He has no dog
    And he has no friends and
    His lawn is dying... and
    What about all those packages
    He sends. What's he building in there?
    With that hook light
    On the stairs. What's he building
    In there... I'll tell you one thing
    He's not building a playhouse for
    The children what's he building
    In there?

    Now what's that sound from under the door?
    He's pounding nails into a
    Hardwood floor... and I
    Swear to god I heard someone
    Moaning low... and I keep
    Seeing the blue light of a
    T.V. show...
    He has a router
    And a table saw... and you
    Won't believe what Mr. Sticha saw
    There's poison underneath the sink
    Of course... But there's also
    Enough formaldehyde to choke
    A horse... What's he building
    In there. What the hell is he
    Building in there? I heard he
    Has an ex-wife in some place
    Called Mayors Income, Tennessee
    And he used to have a
    consulting business in Indonesia...
    but what is he building in there?
    What the hell is building in there?

    He has no friends
    But he gets a lot of mail
    I'll bet he spent a little
    Time in jail...
    I heard he was up on the
    Roof last night
    Signaling with a flashlight
    And what's that tune he's
    Always whistling...
    What's he building in there?
    What's he building in there?

    We have a right to know...

    Interpol - Evil


    Rosemary
    Heaven restores you in life
    You´re coming with me
    Through the aging, the fear and the strife

    It's the smiling on the package
    It's the faces in the sand
    It's the thought that moves you upwards
    Embracing me with two hands

    Right will take you places
    Yeah, maybe to the beach
    When your friends they do come crying
    Tell them how your pleasure's set up on slow-release

    Hey wait
    Great smile
    Sensitive,to fate Not
    Denial
    But hey who's on trial?

    It took a lifespan
    With no cellmate
    The long way back
    sandy why ,"can't we look the other way?"

    We speaks about travel
    Yeah, we think about the land
    We smart like all peoples
    Feeling real tan

    I could take you places
    Do you need a new man?
    Wipe the pollen from the faces
    Make revision to a dream while you wait in the van

    Hey wait
    Great smile
    Sensitive,to fate Not
    Denial
    But hey who's on trial?

    It took a lifespan
    With no cellmate
    the long way back
    sandy why ,"can't we look the other way?"
    You're weightless, you are exotic
    You need something for which to care
    sandy why,"can't we look the other way?"

    Leave some shards under the belly
    Lay some grease inside my hand
    It's a sentimental jury
    And the makings of a good plan
    You've come to love me lightly
    Yeah you've come to hold me tight
    Is this motion everlasting
    Or do shudders pass in the night?

    Rosemary
    Oh, heaven restores you in life

    I spent a lifespan with no cellmate
    The long way back
    sandy why ,"can't we look the other way?"
    You're weightless, semi-erotic
    You need someone to take you there
    sandy why , "can't we look the other way?"
    Why can't we just play the other game?
    Why can't we just look the other way?

    Talking Heads- The Big Country

    I see the shapes,
    I remember from maps.
    I see the shoreline.
    I see the whitecaps.
    A baseball diamond, nice weather down there.
    I see the school and the houses where the kids are.
    Places to park by the factries and buildings.
    Restaunts and bar for later in the evening.
    Then we come to the farmlands, and the undeveloped areas.
    And I have learned how these things work together.
    I see the parkway that passes through them all.
    And I have learned how to look at these things and I say,

    (chorus)

    I wouldnt live there if you paid me.
    I couldnt live like that, no siree!
    I couldnt do the things the way those people do.
    I couldnt live there if you paid me to.

    I guess its healthy, I guess the air is clean.
    I guess those people have fun with their neighbors and friends.
    Look at that kitchen and all of that food.
    Look at them eat it guess it tastes real good.

    They grow it in the farmlands
    And they take it to the stores
    They put it in the car trunk
    And they bring it back home
    And I say ...

    (chorus)

    I say, I wouldnt live there if you paid me.
    I couldnt live like that, no siree!
    I couldnt do the things the way those people do.
    I wouldnt live there if you paid me to.

    Im tired of looking out the windows of the airplane
    Im tired of travelling, I want to be somewhere.
    Its not even worth talking
    About those people down there.

    Goo goo ga ga ga

    As a bass player i prefer Slow Hands and C'mere over Evil...
    And i think C'mere is better lyrically in a way too.

    Those two are more fun to play than Evil.
    Evil is sort of like a fingering lesson, whereas you actually get a bit of a solo in Slow Hands and C'mere happens to have one of my favourite bass riffs

    Stick to Your Guns - This is More

    This is more than a pulse beneath my wrist, or a beat beneath my ribs. This is something that can't be given away.

    Not exactly clever, but I like it a whole lot.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Thought the lyric was (& my liner notes for The White Album agree) "you all"? Rhymes with "Paul" too!

    Think Ringo was the real walrus with his nose tho....
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
