BAND REHEARSAL BOOGIE& Raccoons Gettin' DOWN!!
Rented Rehearsal Hall,
Lousy PA Solid State Amp rental
Other bands sounds coming through amp speaker,
Dirty carpets & A Soda machine that don't work..
Throwing together a song list,
Girlfriend calls and says Raccoons are having relations in her driveway
I am Reading my own rights
Lord Byron is floating overhead on a Mountain top of rubble Darkness is Beautiful with light when Byron Rights it-
Then Writes it.
The Set list we journey down through
Rummage through old time tunes for Licks& Kicks
Hippie Culture tells me The Weather Underground are all upper middle class rich folk
So was Abbie Hoffman... Pete knocked him off the stage in 69 ,
I think that sums it all up.
Back from daydream- Into next song Rustlin' & a singin' into my own microphone
The Others are dented and filled with Gob slobber
Gobbing a way for Punk bands of yesteryear to show their diggin' your band,
I step aside like Fred Astaire and avoid that belief
like a swirlin' top whizzer' from Rock em sock em' sock it to me robots of past glory
Next number Ray Price tune
Guitars & steel heaven Blues for the aged flowers cultivated by time
Television reality of phoniness can only mean more lack of privacy
Don't matter Worlds already solid , the people are already almost blue
And there ain't nuttin' any leader or revolutionary can do
cept' how to Travel through windows and learn how to walk through roofs
Top 100 Beatles songs
Rolling Stone magazine list
Does that magazine even matter anymore?
The covers and pages are filled with Reality stars
One sided Politics
I'm a Bum traveler so I slip away cause
I don't care Red States- Blue States
I am color Blind Means nothing To a music Hobo
"Let me introduce my shadow .. Hobo Mike"
Kerouac greets Thomas Wolfe (Not Tom Wolfe) in Shakespeare's driveway
Edgar Allen Poe has just put the stash on the grill
Kafka Morphs into a Rollin' Stone No burgers tonight
Only Ravens well done
Nevermore will they chow food like this again
All I know is Monte Cliff just turned over the canoe Shelly's a swimmin' & it aint no
Only a place in the sun
Next song A countrified Jean Harlow
Back to reality in our false world
More consumer grab bags
Elmer Fudd is chasing rabbits down on 42nd street and no one seems to notice all plugged in
Next song to close rehearsal is an all out jam of T for Texas
Tea is for The English
Coffee for The USA
& Fashion mags are losing respect for the photo artist
Behind the Who's Magic Bus lurks Johnny Boy from Mean Streets.
He has a pool cue...look out!
Load up the gear and see ya round the pool hall for a Rock N Roll show that don't exist
As I wonder tonight where is my sweet baby that I miss?
Rocky Raccoon is set to get an Ass whoopin'
Cause Elmer's Fudd is a comin' Strong as glue and he don't look happy........
Just another ordinary Thought that went through a mind in a flash of a second at Band rehearsal
Goodnight Ladies & Gents The curtain will rise tomorrow with Vaudevillian romance.
