the light in your eyes

monkey.jpg

here is a song I made up this morn. click where it says listen here carl

LISTEN HERE CARL

I watched a guy get his tooth pulled in Morocco
In a jam packed square in Marrakech
By a so called dentist with a monkey on a leash
With a pair of pliers in his paws

And as the dentist would pull on the monkeyís arm
The monkey would yank on the tooth
And that monkey was grinning from ear to ear
And the crowd was starting to cheer

Now Iíve seen a lot of things
Huge shiny diamond rings
And Iíve seen two grown men cry
But I never saw the light
Like I did in your eyes
The light in your eyes

Watched a guy get sick on a rolling ship
In the middle of a storm on the North Sea
And that storm was so rough that I thought I would die
That ship felt as light as a toy

And I prayed all night on my hands and my knees
And the storm finally let up
The captain let out a yell and a cry
As the sun broke through from the sky

Now Iíve seen a lot of things
Huge shiny diamond rings
And Iíve seen two grown men cry
But I never saw the light
Like I did in your eyes
The light in your eyes

I watched my sister give birth to my niece in a room
In a hospital in San Diego
I was supposed to take pictures of the whole shebang
I smiled when she made me the offer

But when I got in that room and it started to happen
My eyes filled with tears and my hands couldnít move
The doctor just laughed and my sister just sighed
I was frozen in time and I started to cry

Now Iíve seen a lot of things
Huge shiny diamond rings
And Iíve seen two grown men cry
But I never saw the light
Like I did in your eyes
The light in your eyes

click below where it says listen here carl.

LISTEN HERE CARL

I don't really know why I made this song up. I guess there really is something wrong inside of me just like that doctor guy said.

I do know that this song mentions many things Sandy Eggo. You got your O.B. Ocean Beach shout oot. And you got your La Jolla whisper to boot and while we're at it we even mention good old Leucadia quaulludia and Encinitas zencinitas towns.

sing along with moi.

dude yer pants are on fire
dude it's like yer in a deep fryer
dude could you be any higher???
dude yer pants are on fire

substitute dudette and dog where needed. PLAY IT LOUD AT WORK AND TELL YER BOSS TO KISS YOUR ASS CUZ YER FIXIN TO TAKE THE DAY OFF AND LISTEN TO STYX AND GO SUFING OR PRETEND TO GO SURFING.

god speed good citizens,
love
poltzy

p.s. thanks to Lou DeMarco for requesting to eat some more of those sticks at the taco shop after the Casbah show. They're actually called rolled tacos you idiot! And the green stuff is guacamole. But now I am ripping you off sweet Lou and I am calling them sticks with the green stuff on top! xo

bombs

bombs-1.jpg

to listen to this song click below.

LISTEN HERE

all the trees have leafy palms
everyone on my tv has hairy arms
your voice it soothes and really calms
on tv we are dropping bombs

we're dropping bombs on foreign people
bullets are flying bouncing off church steeples
we're dropping bombs
we're dropping bombs

the pres na dent he talks so wrong
when i watch congress it's like watching ping pong
from left to right it's so sing song
we're acting like we are king kong

we're dropping bombs on foreign people
bullets are flying bouncing off church steeples
we're dropping bombs
we're dropping bombs

our boys and girls bodies are piling up like trash
while the bullet and oil and bomb makers are raking in the cash
they're at their cocktail parties acting really crass
but if they had to send their own kids they'd shatter just like glass

we're dropping bombs on foreign people
bullets are flying bouncing off church steeples
we're dropping bombs
we're dropping bombs

the tv set it placates me
i just od'd on reality
there's 500 channels filling me with dread
they etherize my body and send me off to bed

we're dropping bombs on foreign people
bullets are flying bouncing off church steeples
we're dropping bombs
we're dropping bombs

photo by george stagani (idiot!)

this is a song for anyone who misses their pet today

LISTEN HERE


i don't wanna say goodbye to my friend
i don't wanna think that this is the end so long
i don't wanna say farewell to my pet
i think they all go to heaven
that's what i bet so long au revoir

well there's toodles the dog and mimi the cat
benny the bunny was gettin' too fat
man it's lonely
cuz she was my one and only

and mugsy the pug got hit by a car
while crossing the street
he didn't get far it's scary
in a pet cemetary

don't wanna say goodbye to my friend
i don't wanna think that this is the end so long
i don't wanna say farewell to my pet
i think they all go to heaven
that's what i bet so long au revoir

there was bu bu and bo bo and baby butt head
not sure what they were but i'm sure that they're dead
they're dead oh yeah they're dead

peaches and daisy and tipper the dog
are buried right next to arnold the hog
our love wasn't fakin'
we wouldn't let you become bacon

my one and only friend lies here
my beloved my pal our love is eternal
you are my heart i will always love youwe will see each other again in heaven
love,
mommy
here comes the rain and thunder
and you're just 3 feet under

don't wanna say goodbye to my friend
i don't wanna think that this is the end so long
i don't wanna say farewell to my pet
i think they all go to heaven
that's what i bet so long au revoir
