Almost Born in a Studebaker

I was almost born in a Studebaker / I was almost born in a Studebaker

Santa Ana to Oceanside / foggy night, heck of a ride

I was almost born in a Studebaker

Ma’s big brother is behind the wheel / Dad’s overseas at the war, bad deal

Ma’s big brother is my Uncle Russell / Ma says “hustle, Russell hustle!

I can’t have G.A. in a Studebaker”

there’s the hospital / right over there

we make it there / five minutes to spare

Uncle Russell looks around the waiting room

then he sits down in a chair

starts talking to a guy who’s smoking

“how;s it going there, buddy?”

I was almost  born in a Studebaker / I was almost born in a Studebaker

Dad’s a sarge, Marine Corps / he gets home safe from the war

we all ride around in the Studebaker

we all ride around in the Studebaker

One Day in Omaha

I hop to Mr. Toad’s / Old Market, Omaha

I’m not a perfect man / I admit I have some flaws

bottle of beer on the patio / there goes a woman with no bra

zip-a-dee-doo-dah, Omaha

it’s a sunny afternoon / birds are in the trees

tweet, tweet, “hey there waitress / another bottle please”

no tornado warnings / I love days like these

zip-a-dee-doo-dah, Omaha

after a few beers / I figure I should eat

so I leave Mr. Toad’s / and hop on down the street

I hop to Billy Frogg’s / I swear I’m not making this up

zip-a-dee-doo-dah, Omaha

Billy Frogg’s has a patio too / I like to eat outside

watch the horse-drawn carriages / taking folks for rides

there goes Warren Buffett / and his bodyguard Clyde

zip-a-dee-doo-dah, Omaha

I decide I’m not that hungry / I get a pitcher of brew

fifteen minutes later / I’m on pitcher number two

guess I’ll go for the record / if that’s alright with you

zip-a-dee-doo-dah, Omaha

eventually I’ll hop / back to my domicile

I live on the seventh floor / dirty dishes  bachelor style

keg of beer in my refrigerator / thank God I don’t own a car

zip-a-dee-doo-dah, Omaha

I shall gaze out my window/ it might rain, I love raindrops

drunk drivers down on Farnam / getting nailed by cops

as info, here in Nebraska / corn is a popular crop

zip-a-dee-doo-dah, Omaha

zip-a-dee-doo-dah, Omaha

Chow Time

saber tooth eats a caveman / caveman eats a saber tooth

no silverware, no napkins / no ketchup, how uncouth

chow time here on planet earth / you want a table or a booth?

Noah barbecues burgers / on the poop-deck of his ark

seems there was this extra cow / he didn’t wanna throw to the sharks

two pit-bulls are jumping around / bark bark bark bark bark

rats dodge New York traffic / to go nibble on King Kong

who the hell brought that monkey to town? / they shoulda known things would go wrong

all the brave young pilots / who shot King off the Empire State

gather at a diner down by the airport / and order some special blue plates

from the waitress Kate

little fish, big fish, bigger fish / here comes a killer whale

meanwhile, in that French restaurant / people are munching snails

old Dick Cheney’s out in the woods / trying to shoot a quail

look out

now your dung-beetle, there’s a little creature / who really got a bad deal

one can only imagine / the injustice he must feel

the other day I read a short story / while chugging some Parrot Bay

this guy had to eat off his own arms and legs / he was a Stephen King castaway

I cancelled my cruise today

we have a cat who’s a vegan / she only eats cat-nip

she listens to Charlie Parker / that cat’s pretty hip

I like to sit with my popcorn / and watch her do back-flips

in some less-fortunate countries / some people will eat cats

my cat’s always so loaded / she ain’t too worried about that

meanwhile back in New York City / a wino kicks a rat
