    Unbelievable.
    I’d have left my windows open year round, just to hear him practice.

    Why, all you would have needed to do was walk over to watch and listen.

    Person like that probably enjoys their privacy.
    But, I’d be an extra good neighbor.

    This is my favorite cover of Zappa stuff.

    I met her in a club down in old Soho
    Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like

    Coca Cola
    C-O-L-A Cola

    She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
    I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said, "Lola"
    L-O-L-A Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

    Well, I'm not the world's most physical guy
    But when she squeezed me tight she nearly broke my spine
    Oh my Lola, lo lo lo Lola
    Well, I'm not dumb but I can't understand
    Why she walks like a woman and talks like a man

    Oh my Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

    Well, we drank champagne and danced all night
    Under electric candlelight
    She picked me up and sat me on her knee
    She said, "Little boy won't you come home with me?"

    Well, I'm not the world's most passionate guy
    But when I looked in her eyes
    Well I almost fell for my Lola
    Lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola
    Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

    I pushed her away
    I walked to the door
    I fell to the floor
    I got down on my knees
    I looked at her, and she at me

    Well that's the way that I want it to stay
    And I always want it to be that way for my Lola
    Lo lo lo Lola

    Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
    It's a mixed up, muddled up, shook up world
    Except for Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola


    Well I'd left home just a week before
    And I'd never ever kissed a woman before
    Lola smiled and took me by the hand
    She said, "Little boy, gonna make you a man"
    Well I'm not the world's most masculine man
    But I know what I am and I'm glad I'm a man
    And so is Lola
    Lo lo lo lo Lola, Lo lo lo lo Lola

    [Outro]
    Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola
    Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola
    Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola
    Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola
    Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola, lo lo lo lo Lola

    One more.
    Well I started on the whiskey pretty early this morning
    That's alright, I was up all night
    But I passed out before the sun came up
    I really wanted to see one of those
    I know that's no way for a man to behave
    With a mortgage due and a baby on the way
    But somehow I made it to where I'm at
    It's been a living as a matter of fact

    I get a bad attitude from being tired and running 'round
    I never ask for anyone to say they like my sound
    I've never been a part of any musical scene
    I ain't just talking Nashville, if you know what I mean
    They don't write about me in their magazines
    And I don't ask for no reviews on the songs that I sing
    I never had a lot of friends and I'm alright by that
    But people keep on coming back

    Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys
    They don't care about no trends
    They don't care about songs that sell
    Yeah, tomorrow I'll be gone
    So tonight everybody just sing along
    Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys

    I've been standing on the outside for all of my life
    But I like the view, I'm not gonna lie
    Yeah, the yuppies and the hipsters and the wannabe scenes
    That ain't down home to me
    I like two dollar beers, I like three dollar wells
    At some old honky tonk bar that I know by the smell
    Some old drunk on a bar stool on a Merle Haggard tune
    That's my kind of room

    Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys
    They don't care about no trends
    They don't care about songs that sell
    Yeah, tomorrow I'll be gone
    So tonight everybody just sing along
    Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys

    Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys
    They don't care about no trends
    They don't care about songs that sell
    Yeah, tomorrow I'll be gone
    So tonight everybody just sing along
    Raising hell with the hippies and the cowboys

    I can’t type out the whole song but as I grow older these lyrics get closer and closer to the bone


    “Little boy sits on the corner and cries
    Old man passing asks him why?

    he says I can’t do what the big boys do.

    Old man sat down and he cried too “

    And later Yusuf Islam at which point he no longer did rock and roll which was something I was not aware of that he had converted to Muslim faith.

    He sort of came back after several decades. I don't think he has given up his faith, but he has relaxed a little bit---I saw him performing on a TV special a few years back,, even though after his conversion he went really hard-core and said something about never doing that devil-music ever again.

    He went to a few really strange places (which I can understand too well) but he never did any harm, and he sort of got recentered, it seems so good for him.

    I lost all faith in him when he signed on to the fatwa against Rushdie.

    Once I rose above the noise and confusion
    Just to get a glimpse beyond the illusion
    I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high
    Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
    Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
    I hear the voices when I'm dreamin', I can hear them say
    Carry on my wayward son
    For there'll be peace when you are done
    Lay your weary head to rest
    Don't you cry no more

    In their prime, they were quite a good band.

    Shameless plug for my nephew’s new release. He’s the singer/writer.

    Well produced and imaginative. Not quite my style of music but quite well done.
