"Monkey Man" (Jagger/Richards) 1969

"I'm a fleabit peanut monkey

All my friends are junkies... That's not really true..."

"I'm a cold Italian Pizza

I could use a Lemon Squeezer...What you do..."

"I've been bitten, I've been tossed around...

By every She-Rat in this town...

Have You Babe?..."

"Well I am just a Monkey Man, I am glad You are a Monkey Woman too..."

"I was bitten by a boar, I was gouged and I was gored, but I pulled on through..."

"Yes, I'm a sack of broken eggs, I always have an unmade bed... Don't You?"

"I hope were not to Messianic or a trifle too Satanic, We Love to play the Blues..."

Well, I am just a Monkey Man, I'm glad you are a Monkey, Monkey Woman too Babe..."

"I'm a Monkey, I'm a Monkey Man..."

I personally think that this is the Greatest and Best Rolling Stones song of all-time. Both lyrically and musically. I realize that there are dozens and dozens of Great Rolling Stones songs, but this is the Best of them all. (As I am typing this very statement, I am now listening to "Fool to Cry").

I would've liked you to have been deep frozen too

and waiting still as fresh in your flesh for my return to Earth

But your father refused to sign the forms to freeze you

Let's see you'd be about 60 now,

and long dead by the time I return to Earth

My time held dreams were full of you,

as you were when I left; still underage

Your android replica is playing up again, it's no joke

When she comes she moans another's name

But that's the spirit of the age...

I am a clone, I am not alone

Every fibre of my flesh and bone is identical to the others

Everything I say is in the same tone

as my test tube brother's voice

There is no choice between us,

If you had ever seen us,

You'd rejoice in your uniqueness

and consider every weakness something special of your own

Being a clone, I have no flaws to identify

Even this doggerel that pours from my pen,

has just been written by another twenty telepathic men,

Oh, word for word, it says:

"Oh, for the wings of any bird, other than a battery hen".

That's the spirit of the age...

We got the bubbleheaded bleach-blonde, comes on at 5

She can tell you about the plane crash with a gleam in her eye

It's interesting when people die, give us dirty laundry

Can we film the operation? Is the head dead yet?

You know the boys in the newsroom got a running bet

Get the widow on the set, we need dirty laundry

-Don Henley

One of my faves:

Nobody on the road

Nobody on the beach

I feel it in the air

Summer's out of reach

Empty lake, empty streets

The sun goes down alone

I'm drivin' by your house

Though I know you're not home

But I can see you

Your brown skin shinin' in the sun

You got your hair combed back

And those Wayfarer's on, baby

And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong

After the Boys Of Summer have gone

I Wanted a woman... Never bargained for you

Lots of people talkin' ... few of them know,

The soul of a woman... was created below . . ."

If you've ever done acid, you gotta love Rosetta Stoned...

Tool

Fuck me - it's gotta be the Deadhead chemistry.

Blotter got right on top of me.

Got me seein' E. mothafuckin' T.

Shout out to Electrophile for having this one in her sig - awesome song...

Dave Mason

Been away, haven't seen you in a while.

How've you been?

Have you changed your style and do you think that we've grown up differently?

Don't seem the same - seems you've lost your feel for me.

So let's leave it alone, because we can't see eye to eye.

There ain't no good guy.

There ain't no bad guy.

There's only you and me and we just disagree.

Head East

Have you ever been lonely?

Do you have any fun?

Do you ever think of me?

I'm just another one.

Yes

Now the verses I've sang don't add much weight to the story in my head

so I'm thinking I should go and write a punch line.

But they're so hard to find in my cosmic mind

so I think I'll take a look out of the window.

When I think about you I don't feel low.

Nor should I really chase so hard.

The truth of sport plays rings around you.

Charlie Daniels

I ordered up a beer and sat down at the bar

When some guy walked in and said, "Who owns this car

With the peace sign, the mag wheels and the four on the floor?"

Well he looked at me and I damn near died

And I decided that I'd just wait outside

So I laid a dollar on the bar and headed for the door

Just when I thought I'd get outta there with my skin

These 5 big dudes come strollin' in

With this one old drunk chick and some fella with green teeth

Now I was almost to the door when the biggest one

Said, "You tip your hat to this lady, son!"

And when I did, all that hair fell out from underneath

Now the last thing I wanted was to get into a fight

In Jackson Mississippi on a Saturday night

Especially when there was three of them and only one of me

They all started laughin' and I felt kinda sick

And I knew I better think of something pretty quick

So I just reached out and kicked old green teeth right in the knee

Now he let out a yell that'd curl yer hair

But before he could move I grabbed me a chair

And said "Now watch him Folks cause he's a furly dangerous man!"

"Well you may not know it but this man is a spy.

He's a undercover agent for the FBI

And he's been sent down here to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan!"

He was still bent over holdin' on to his knee

But everybody else was lookin' and listenin' to me

And I laid it on thicker and heavier as I went

I said "Would you believe this man has gone as far

As tearing Wallace stickers off the bumpers of cars

And he voted for George McGovern for President."

"Well he's a friend of them long haired, hippy-type, pinko fags!

I betchya he's even got a commie flag

Tacked up on the wall inside of his garage."

"He's a snake in the grass, I tell ya guys

He may look dumb but that's just a disguise

He's a mastermind in the ways of espionage"

They all started lookin' real suspicious at him and

He jumped up and said "Now just wait a minute Jim!

You know he's lyin' I been livin' here all of my life!"

"I'm a faithful follower of Brother John Birch

And I belong to the Antioch Baptist Church.

And I ain't even got a garage, you can call home and ask my wife!"

One pill makes you larger, and one pill makes you small

And the ones that mother gives you, don't do anything at all

Go ask Alice, when she's ten feet tall

And if you go chasing rabbits, and you know you're going to fall

Tell 'em a hookah-smoking caterpillar has given you the call

Call Alice, when she was just small

When the men on the chessboard get up and tell you where to go

And you've just had some kind of mushroom, and your mind is moving low

Go ask Alice, I think she'll know

When logic and proportion have fallen sloppy dead

And the white knight is talking backwards

And the red queen's "Off with her head"

Remember what the dormouse said

Feed your head, feed your head

Do your demons - do they ever let you go?

When you've tried do they hide deep inside?

Is it someone that you know?

These are some of my favorite non-LZ lines.

Tool

Fuck L. Ron Hubbard and Fuck all his clones.

Fuck all these gun-toting Hip gangster wannabes.

Learn to swim.

Fuck retro anything. Fuck your tattoos.

Fuck all you junkies and Fuck your short memory.

Learn to swim.

Fuck smiley glad-hands With hidden agendas.

Fuck these dysfunctional, Insecure actresses.

Learn to swim.

Hell yeah! Except my favorite part of that song is:

I'm praying for rain.

I'm praying for tidal waves.

I wanna see the ground give way.

I wanna watch it all go down.

Mom please flush it all away.

I wanna watch it go right in and down.

I wanna watch it go right in.

Watch you flush it all away.

Some more Tool

Right In Two:

Angels on the sideline,

Puzzled and amused.

Why Father give these humans free will?

Now they're all confused.

Don't these talking monkeys know that Eden has enough to go around?

Plenty in this holy garden, silly monkeys

Where there's one you're bound to divide it right in two.

Angels on the sideline,

Baffled and confused.

Father blessed them all with reason,

And this is what they choose?

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey over pieces of the ground.

Silly monkeys.

Give them thumbs, they forge a blade,

And where there's one they're bound to divide it right in two.

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey over pieces of the ground.

Silly monkeys.

Give them thumbs, they make a club to beat their brother down.

How they've survived so misguided is a mystery.

Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability

To lift an eye to heaven, conscious of his fleeting time here.

I encourage everyone to check out this song. One of my faves. It's just so deep and meaningful.

A Whiter Shade Of Pale.

We skipped a light fandango,

Turned cartwheels 'cross the floor.

I was feeling kind of seasick,

But the crowd called out for more.

The room was humming harder,

As the ceiling flew away.

When we called out for another drink,

The waiter brought a tray.

And so it was that later,

As the miller told his tale,

That her face at first just ghostly,

Turned a whiter shade of pale.

She said there is no reason,

And the truth is plain to see

That I wandered through my playing cards,

And would not let her be

One of sixteen vestal virgins

Who were leaving for the coast.

And although my eyes were open,

They might just as well have been closed.

And so it was later,

As the miller told his tale,

That her face at first just ghostly,

Turned a whiter shade of pale.

I have dozens and dozens of favorite rock lines but these two have been like mantras for me for many years: the first one for my cousin/best friend who died (murdered) tragically at a young age and the second one for my husband and me and the way we've chosen to live our lives:

Think of me as one you'd never figured

Would fade away so young

With so much left undone

Remember me to my love,

I know I'll miss her.

Did you see our brother

He was here the other day

But he only came to say that he can't breathe here

Did you see his lady

She was reaching for his hand

Just as if to tell her man that she can't either

They're bound to go...

From Roxy Music's LADYTRON

I'll find some way of connection

Hiding my intention

Then I'll move up close to you

I'll use you and I'll confuse you

Still you won't suspect me

Shear poetry.

Just like when The Miller told his tale and The Prioress must be one of 16 vestal virgins

Procol Harum also gave us muh man, Robin Trower.

Been a long time crossing.

I've got a great shot of Robin Trower at Winterland in the mid 70's. :)

That's when you could take a camera in without getting your ass kicked like nowadays. <_<

From Blitzkrieg by Blitzkrieg

Let us have peace

Let us have light

Let us escape the cruel night

Let us have time

Let the sun shine

Let us beware the deadly sign

The day is coming

Armageddon's near

Inferno calling.

Can we survive the blitzkrieg?

I've always wondered, Where is Funkytown?

Would congratulations be in order for your 1000th post? I'll say it anyway.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! :D

Not that it matters or that I'm keeping track, but I have 97 more to go to reach that milestone. :rolleyes:
