either HELL or DAMN in it.'  (those bastards..)


 

'I read the other day where some 
scientist thinks it's possible to put

'No one can afford to be sick 
anymore.  At $15.00 a day in 
the hospital, it's too rich for 
my blood.' (well, cheaper than the mortgage..)

QUEEN LIVE AT WEMBLEY

Is this the world we created? I don't remember doing that.


ARE WE NOT "SIMPLE MEN?" ~DEVO (wildly paraphrased)




I am just a simple man
I have to do the simple things that a simple man…can
You are holding out your hand
You want to know the simple things in my simple plan…and…
I know there's so much to share, but what else can I do

Yes, I'm a simple man
Come now and take my hand
Now and forever never to be lonely
Yes, I'm a simple man
I do the best I can
Now and together just remember only -
that I'm a simple man

Love is just a simple thought
A little bit the worse for wear like a thief who got…caught
Hope is just a thing you bought
It's just another safe white lie that everybody got…taught
I can see you look to me so what else can I do

Yes, I'm a simple man
Come now and take my hand
Now and forever never to be lonely
Yes, I'm a simple man
I do the best I can
Now and together just remember only

That I'm a simple man
I do the best I can
I got a simple, simple plan
I hope you understand
I'm just a simple man
I'm holding out my hand
It's such a simple, simple plan
I hope you understand

Yes, I'm a simple man
Come now and take my hand
Now and forever never to be lonely
Yes, I'm a simple man
I do the best I can
Now and together just remember only -
It's so simple…
