A Plant For My Apartment

got a plant for my apartment / I moved in a year ago

got a plant for my apartment / I moved in a year ago

it’s what they call a philodendron / I like to watch it grow

got a plant for my apartment / I live in Pasadena

got a date tomorrow night / with a cutie named Gina

gonna pick her up at seven / she lives in West Covina

the landlord ain’t such a bad guy / he resembles Tom Waits

days that his old car starts / are days he celebrates

sometimes I celebrate with him / down at the Loch Ness Monster

happy hour

Scotty and the Hankies

got a plant for my apartment / a pawnshop stereo

I only have one speaker / two was too much dough

gonna fire one up now / put on Sheryl Crow

if it makes you happy

run baby run

run baby

let’s run out to Roswell, baby

Burfurd flies around the country / to the talk radio stations

paying them to badmouth / corporate regulations

Burfurd built a new stadium / charged it to tax-payers

he bought another governor / and a dozen more mayors

Burfurd keeps having dreams of tall guillotines

he gets out of bed at three A.M.

and kicks the poodle Darlene

freaking rags to riches / are the words on his bumper-sticker

truth be known he bumped his parents off / to get their money quicker

his wife Babs drinks a lot / because she likes to dance

Burfurd really hates to dance / and he won’t take her to France

Burfurd keeps having dreams of tall guillotines

Babs says “get a shrink boy,

he’ll tell you what it means”

high noon at the mansion / on a hot summer hill

Babs pours another Bourbon / to take away the chill

she finds Burfurd with the maid / poolside guest-house bed

she grabs the gardener’s weed-whacker / off with hubby’s head

Burfurd no longer dreams of tall guillotines

his head is in the basket

with Louie’s and the Queen’s

* The hostess confirmed this is indeed the restaurant made famous by the movie Sideways. The restaurant is in Buellton, California. And yes, I  ‘drank and dialed’ all sixteen of my ex-wives.  (I believe I’ve mentioned somewhere in this blog that I used to be a polygamist) GAM
