One day you're up and the next day you're down
You can't face the world with your head to the ground
The grass is always greener on the other side, they say
So don't worry, boys, life will be sweet some day

 
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

 
We made enough mistakes
But you know we got what it takes
Oh, we ain't got nothin' yet
No, we ain't got nothin' yet
 
Nothin' can hold us and nothin' can keep us down
And someday our names will be spread all over town
We can get in while the getting is good
So make it on your own, yeah, you know that you could

 
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

 
We got to make the break
'Cause we got too much at stake
Oh, we ain't got nothin' yet
No, we ain't got nothin' yet
 
We made enough mistakes
But you know we got what it takes
Oh, we ain't got nothin' yet
No, we ain't got nothin' yet

I am the little red rooster

Too lazy to crow for day

I am the little red rooster

Too lazy to crow for day

Keep everything in the farm yard upset in every way

The dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl

Dogs begin to bark and hounds begin to howl

Watch out strange cat people

Little red rooster's on the prowl

If you see my little red rooster

Please drive him home

If you see my little red rooster

Please drive him home

Ain't had no peace in the farm yard

Since my little red rooster's been gone

Goddamnit Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, why did you have to close Captain Marvel's big action sequence with a Hole song?  I hate Courtney Love!

I saw you standing hand in hand
But now you come to me the solitary man
And I know what it is that makes us live
Such ordinary lives
The where to go, the who to see
No one could sympathize
The smile has left your eyes
The smile has left your eyes

And I've become a rolling stone
I don't know where to go or what to call my own
But I can see that black horizon glooming
Ever close to view
It's over now it's not my fault
See how this feels for you
The smile has left your eyes
The smile has left your eyes

I never thought I'd see you
Standing there with him
So don't come crawling back to me

I saw you standing hand in hand
But now you come to me the solitary man
And I know what it is that makes us live
Such ordinary lives
The where to go, the who to see
No one could sympathize
The smile has left your eyes
Now it's too late you realized
Now there's now one can sympathize
Now that the smile had left your eyes
Now it's too late you realized
Now there's now one can sympathize
Now it's too late you realized
Now that the smile has left your eyes
The smile has left your eyes

Damn you Umbrella Academy!

Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Oh Constantinople
Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night
 
Every gal in Constantinople
Lives in Istanbul, not Constantinople
So if you've a date in Constantinople
She'll be waiting in Istanbul
 
Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it I can't say
People just liked it better that way
 
So, Take me back to Constantinople
No, you can't go back to Constantinople
Been a long time gone, Oh Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks
 
Istanbul
Istanbul
Istanbul
Istanbul

Its not Tuesday but this has been stuck in my head SINCE Tuesday. Let me explain...

Keeping an 11 month old engaged is tricky as the littlest distraction will make Princess Sandy drop what she is doing to focus on a new distraction. The ONLY thingt that she never gets distracted from is Fraggle Rock (which I'm grateful for being on HBO through my Amazon Fire TV). So there we were watching season 2 of fraggle Rock when we get the "the Rumble Bug Hum" and suddenly Sandy is bopping up and down on my knee giggling. When the song ends she looks up at me has this look like "Where is the song? I WANT THE SONG BACK!!". So I'm good daddy and played it again for her... and again... again and again and again... this went on for 45 minutes until she finally fell asleep on my lap. 

So that is the story of how "the Rumble Bug Hum" has plagued me for the last 3 days. Sandy has since discovered "One & One (I'm The One That Won)" which is actually my personal favorite Red song (I think they give all the best songs to Red)

Anyway, here you are you bastards!

Saturday night I was downtown
Working for the FBI
Sittin' in a nest of bad men
Whiskey bottles piling high

Bootlegging boozer on the west side
Full of people who are doing wrong
Just about to call up the DA man
When I heard this woman sing a song

A pair of 45's made me open my eyes
My temperature started to rise
She was a long cool woman in a black dress
Just-a 5'9, beautiful, tall
With just one look I was a bad mess
'Cause that long cool woman had it all

I saw her heading to the table
Like a tall walking big black cat
When Charlie said I hope that you're able boy
'Cause I'm telling you she knows where it's at
Then suddenly we heard the sirens
And everybody started to run
A-jumping out of doors and tables
When I heard somebody shootin' a gun
Well the DA was pumping my left hand

And a-she was a-holding my right
Well I told her don't get scared
'Cause you're gonna be spared
I've gotta be forgivin' if I wanna spend my living
With a long cool woman in a black dress
Just a 5'9 beautiful tall
Yeah, with just one look I was a bad mess
'Cause that long cool woman had it all

Had it all
Had it all

Damn dust.

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside 
I'm not one of those who can easily hide,
I don't have much money but boy if I did 
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again no 
Or a man who makes potions in a traveling show 
Oh I know it's not much but it's the best I can do 
My gift is my song 
And this one's for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song 
It may be quite simple but now that it's done 
I hope you don't mind 
I hope you don't mind 
That I put down in words 
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss 
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross 
But the sun's been quite kind 
While I wrote this song 
It's for people like you that 
Keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting 
But these things I do 
You see I've forgotten 
If they're green or they're blue 
Anyway, the thing is, what I really mean 
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen

And you can tell everybody this is your song 
It may be quite simple but 
Now that it's done 
I hope you don't mind 
I hope you don't mind 
That I put down in words 
How wonderful life is while you're in the world 

I hope you don't mind 
I hope you don't mind 
That I put down in words 
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

I may have been watching way way too much Fraggle Rock with Princess Sandy because the final  episode just makes me cry, especially the last song and version of the closing theme. Having Doc deliver the final "Down at Fraggle Rock" was  so damn apropos!

Standing in the dock at Southampton
Trying to get to Holland or France
The man in the mac said
You've got to go back
You know they didn't even give us a chance

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Finally made the plane into Paris
Honeymooning down by the Seine
Peter Brown call to say
You can make it O.K.
You can get married in Gibraltar near Spain

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Drove from Paris to the Amsterdam Hilton
Talking in our beds for a week
The newspapers said
Say what're you doing in bed
I said we're only trying to get us some peace

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Saving up your money for a rainy day
Giving all your clothes to charity
Last night the wife said
Oh boy when you're dead
You don't take nothing with you but your soul, think

Made a lightning trip to Vienna
Eating chocolate cake in a bag
The newspapers said
She's gone to his head
They look just like two gurus in drag

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

Caught the early plane back to London
Fifty acorns tied in a sack
The men from the press
Said we wish you success
It's good to have the both of you back

Christ you know it ain't easy
You know how hard it can be
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me
The way things are going
They're going to crucify me

In the East the wind is blowing all the boats across the sea,
And their sails, they fill the morning, and their cries ring out to me.

Oh the more it changes, well, well the more it stays the same,
And the hand just rearranges all the players in the game.

Oh, I had a dream:. It seemed I stood alone,
And the veil of the ages, it goes sinking from my eyes like a stone.

A king shall fall and put to death by the English Parliament shall be,
Fire and flame to London come in the year of six and twenty-three.

An emperor of France shall rise who shall be born near Italy.
His rule shall cost his empire dear, Napoleron, his name shall be.

Chorus:
Man, man, your time is sand, your ways are leaves upon the sea.
I am the eyes of Nostradamus, all your ways are known to me.

And from Castile shall Franco come and the government driven out shall be.
An English king seeks divorce and from his throne cast down is he.

And one named Histler shall become captain of greater Germany.
No law does this man observe, and bloody his rise and fall shall be.

(Chorus)

In the new lands of America, three brothers now shall come to power.
Two alone are born to rule, but all must die before their hour.

And two great men, yet brothers not, shall make the North united stand;
Their power will deceive the throne and fear possess the Eastern lands.

And three leagues from the gates of Rome, a pope named Paul is doomed to die.
A great wall that divides a city, at this time is cast aside.

And these are the signs I bring to you to show you when your time is nigh,

(2× Chorus)
