Soundtrack For Our Times



You're nothing but a dirty, dirty old man
You do your thinking with a one-track mind
Keep talkin' about heaven's glory
But on your face is a different story
Clean up your rap your story's getting dusty
Wash out your mouth -your lies are getting rusty
Can't believe nothing you say
'cause I'm around and I see what you do

You know you're funkier than a mosquito's tweeter
You gotta mouth like a herd of boll weevils
Same old game, same old thang -you never changed
Always rappin' 'bout the same old thing

I got something to tell ya
I got something to tell you baby
That you ain't hip to, baby
Blowin' minds is a thing of the past
You blew your chance- that's why you never last
You want to be a graduatin' mother,
But in reality just another brother
You think you slick but you could stand a lot of greasin'
The things you do ain't never really pleasin'
Can't believe nothin' you say
'cause I'm around and I see what you do

You know you funkier than a mosquito's tweeter
You got a mouth like a herd of boll weevils
Same old game, same old thing
Always rappin' 'bout the same old thang
You beautiful, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

You put yourself upon a big stool,
Nothin' worse than an educated fool
Talkin' sex is your favorite conversation
But peace and love is a famous generation
What's in your head has really started showing
Your conversation gettin' kinda boring
Can't believe nothin' you say
'Cause I'm around and I see what you do
You know you funkier than a mosquito's tweeter
You got a mouth like a herd of boll weevils
Same old game, same old game
Same old thing, you never change
Same old game, same old thang
Always rappin' 'bout the same old thang

Many mucho thanks...love the blog too, but seriously folks.

I'm thinking you could be twitterin' with stuff like that. Lots of interesting folk out here who'd have a lot to say. Just sayin' ...

Hi Sissy- Always nice to Intersee you.

Thanks, but I never really warmed up to the idea of Twitter. I like the idea of writing an essay (if that) and leaving it there every day or so, and that's about it.

My Firefox bookmarks would be an astonishing monument to my slovenly reading habits, though. Must have two thousand things on there. It's like Internet Alzheimer's for me. I've written, and keep reading my own Twitter feed.

Miss Rosemarie- It's called "Funkier Than A Mosquito's Tweeter."
