Cigarettes and chocolate milk
.
.
These are just a couple of my cravings
Everything it seems I likes a little bit stronger
A little bit thicker, a little bit harmful for me
If I should buy jellybeans
.
.
Have to eat them all in just one sitting
Everything it seems I likes a little bit sweeter
A little bit fatter, a little bit harmful for me
And then there's those other things
Which for several reasons we won't mention
Everything about 'em is a little bit stranger, a little bit harder
A little bit deadly, it's not very smart
Tends to make one part so brokenhearted
.
.
Sitting here remembering me

Always been a shoe made for the city
Go ahead accuse me of
Just singing about places
With scrappy boys faces have general run of the town
.
.
Playing with prodigal sons
Take a lot of sentimental valiums
.

Can't expect the world to be your Raggedy Andy
While running on empty you little old doll with a frown
You got to keep in the game
Retaining mystique
.
while facing forward
I suggest a reading of lesson in tightropes
.
Or surfing your high hopes
.
.
Or adios Kansas
.

It's not very smart
Tends to make one part
So brokenhearted
.
.
Still there's not a show on my back
Holes
or a friendly intervention
I'm just a little bit heiress,
A little bit Irish
.

A little bit
.

Tower of Pisa
Whenever I see ya
So please be kind
If I'm a mess

Cigarettes and chocolate milk
Cigarettes and chocolate milk
.

I do hope Dave of the Morphing Avatar isn't making you confused?

It's nice to "see" you again.

Dave said...

How dare you say my avatar looks like Morph.

Mel said...

Good Monday to you, ma'am.

<--likes dave's avatar
<--has no clue how to make one STILL

(probably an indicator of my desire to have one? LOL)

ziggi said...

Clowns to the left of me,
jokers to the right, here I am
Stuck in the middle with you

Gordie said...

Dave's new avatar looks like my local vicar. Can the rumours be true?

Dave said...

Dave's new avatar is a photo of Dave, outside the British Museum, with a pair of ionic columns balanced on his shoulders. He doesn't live in Devon, though, so no, Gordie.

Gordie said...

Was it Tony Blair who spoke about feeling the weight of history on his shoulders?

I, like the view, still said...

he's iconic, that dave. . .

or is that ironic? help me out gordie, I seem to be struggling with malapropisms of small but significant proportions (sadly, "the treatment" so far has done nothing for my sense of humour)

dinahmow don't tell him, but I've always quite fancied Father Ted. . .

zigz I feel you honey, you are with me (just watch out that the volts don't ruin your hair do - I'm ok on that front, cos mine has always been too straight for my liking)

mel an avatar would add nothing to your presence. . . (but, if you could do it, what would it be? that's the six billion $ question)

HUGE hugs to you all
