With the heartbreak open
So much you can-t hide
Put on a little makeup makeup
Make sure they get your good side good side

If the words unspoken
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token token
Write it on a pound note pound note

Don-t drink don-t smoke - what do you do?
Don-t drink don-t smoke - what do you do?
Subtle innuends follow
There must be something inside he-s hiding

We don-t follow fashion
That would be a joke
You know we-re going to set them set them
So everyone can take note take note

When they saw you kneeling
Crying words that you mean
Opening their eyeballs eyeballs
Pretending that you-re al green al green

No one-s gonna tell me
What-s wrong or what-s right
Or tell me who to eat with sleep with
Or that I-ve won the big fight big fight

Look out or they-ll tell you
You-re a superstar
Two weeks and you-re an all time legend
I think the games have gone much too far

If the words unspoken
Get stuck in your throat
Send a treasure token token
Write it on a pound note pound note

Don-t drink don-t smoke - what do you do?
Don-t drink don-t smoke - what do you do?
Subtle innuends follow
There must be something inside



Bump from a candy axx :cool:



Good idea Adam :)

My pappy said, 'Son, you're gonna drive me t' drinkin' ...
If you don't quit drivin' that - Hot ... Rod ... Lincoln!'

Well, you've heard the story of the hot rod race,
When the Ford and the Mercury were settin' the pace.
That story's true I'm here to say,
Cause I was a'drivin' that Model A.

It's got a Lincoln motor and it's really souped up;
That Model A body makes it look like a pup.
It's got 12 cylinders and uses them all;
And an overdrive that just won't stall.

It's got a 4-barrel carb and dual exhausts,
4:11 gears that really get lost -
Safety tubes and I'm not scared,
The brakes are good and the tires are fair.

We left San Pedro late one night;
The moon and the stars were shinin' bright.
We were drivin' up Grapevine Hill,
Passin' cars like they were standin' still.

Then, all of a sudden, in the wink of an eye,
a Cadillac sedan passed us by.
The remark was made, "That's the car for me."
But, by then, the taillights wuz all you could see.

Well, the fellers ribbed me for bein' behind,
So I started to make that Lincoln unwind.
Took my foot off the gas and, man alive,
I shoved it down into overdrive.

Well, I wound it up to 110;
Twisted the speedometer cable right off the end.
Had my foot glued right to the floor;
I said, "That's all there is - there ain't no more.

Now the fellas thought I'd lost all sense;
The telephone poles looked like a picket fence.
They said, "Slow down, I see spots."
The lines on the road just looked like dots.

Went around a corner and passed a truck;
I crossed my fingers just for luck -
The fenders clickin' the guard rail post;
The guy beside me was white as a ghost.

Smoke was rollin' outta the back
When I started to gain on that Cadillac
I knew I could catch him and hoped I could pass
But when I did I'd be short on gas.

There were flames comin' from out of the side;
You could feel the tension; man, what a ride.
I said, "Look out, boys, I've got a license to fly"
And the Cadillac pulled over and let me by.

All of a sudden a rod started knockin';
Down in the depths she started a rockin'.
I looked in the mirror and a red light was blinkin';
The cops was after my Hot Rod Lincoln.

Well they arrested me and put me in jail.
I called my pop to make my bail.
He said, 'Son, you're gonna drive me t' drinkin',
If you don't quit drivin' that - Hot ... Rod ... Lincoln!'

The Chicago debut of Spamalot will be part of the Broadway In Chicago 2004-2005 Season Series. Tickets are currently on sale for subscriptions and groups of 20 or more by calling (312) 977-1710.

The self-proclaimed "officially ripped-off" stagework features a book by Eric Idle, based on the screenplay he co-wrote with Monty Python creators Graham Chapman, John Cleese, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin. The show will include three songs ("Brave Sir Robin," "He's Going to Tell," and "Knights of the Round Table") from the original 1975 film and a completely new score with music and lyrics by Idle and composer John Du Prez ("A Fish Called Wanda").

"I always had in the back of my mind that 'The Grail' would make a good musical and starting to work on it," Eric Idle told Playbill On-Line. "We just took it up and recorded some songs and we sent it to the [other] Pythons and they loved it and said 'Yes, absolutely, go ahead.'" If all goes well, according to creator Idle, the show moves to Broadway in March 2005.

Spamalot tells the tale of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table on their quest for the Holy Grail. The show will boast "a chorus line of legless knights, men in tights (with legs), killer rabbits and dancing divas who create unforgettable musical production numbers." Creator Eric Idle, in the show's announcement, promises it will be "almost as good as anything else opening in Chicago that week."

Mike Nichols ("The Graduate," "Angels in America")

A little small talk, a little music, a little stage, some of this, some of that, friends dropping to say hello, and some strangers eating jello (not really, I just liked the way that rhymed).

Midnight greetings from Central Texas!

Thanks for your continued participation.

Onward, Pravda posters!

Did I ever mention that I'm an auditor? .:eek:

Yes, it brings me great joy to torture those poor little unsuspecting/trusting little accounting people.

Not really, sometimes it is very difficult to ask hard questions of nice people, but it's my job.

I gotta get some sleep, see ya later.

Thanks for stopping by

I couldn't resist checking in one more time before I logged off.

Stevie Ray Vaughn.

One of the few famous people I've ever seen in person. He played at a restaurant where I worked back in the early 80's and I spoke briefly with him after his show. He put on a really good show.

Tin,

Thanks for participating and post your pics away, muy multiple posts are encouraged!!!!!
