2005 (I'm gonna make a big deal)


Here is a song for ya'll.

Listen Here

people were sleeping in the gutter
looking for homemade apple butter
screaming happy happy nude year
drinking champagne and warm beer
bittersweet memories of the past year
lets fill this year with cheer
lets make it a big deal

i'm gonna make a big deal
i'm gonna make a big deal baby
i'm gonna make a big deal

the football teams were warring on the television
someone told me the chargers won their division
i was busy cooking sausages and prancing aboot in my leiderhosen
someone threw a frisbee like a record into my window
and the vinyl disc landed on a possum
everyone made a big deal

i'm gonna make a big deal
i'm gonna make a big deal baby
i'm gonna make a big deal
lets stay alive

Yes you are, if it's the last thing I do, god dammit. You're in this thing for a long time--the people need you to show them what good songwriting is.

P.S. I like the song about the phoenix rising from the ground.

I'm looking forward to you coming down under again, Steve...

Will you be visiting Australia again any time soon?

Posted by: Angela the Great at January 17, 2005 5:27 PM

Joe, I need some A/C advice if you don't mind. Should the thermostat be positioned upstairs or downstairs in a 2-story house? The 2nd story seems to get really hot during the summer while the main floor is comfortable. Thanks for your advice.
