Cat Is Unstable

19 11 2014

Cat in the Cradle ( Jimmy A Style)

Went to my friend”s house the other day
To check up on Cindy, I was near her way
Talking with her always makes me feel okay
Yet today was different, what can I say
As she was talking I heard a soft purr, and as it grew
It said ” I’m coming after you , Jim
You know I’m coming after you”

And her cat is unstable and follows me around
Looking real cute but giving me frowns
I’m coming for you, Jim
But you don’t know when, that’s when the fun begins
That’s when Cindy Cat strikes my friend

I thought to myself it must be all in my head
As that little feline creature laid asleep in her bed
Must have been the wine and too much cheese and bread
I jumped to conclusions, my mistake instead
Then the cat did something I didn’t expect at all
Opened her mouth and spit out this huge hairball
And struck me right between the eyeballs

And her cat is unstable and follows me around
Looking real cute but giving me frowns
I’m coming for you, Jim
But you don’t know when, that’s when the fun begins
That’s when Cindy Cat strikes my friend

Well I tried to be nice, didn’t want to act bitter
May be a mistake, she’s just a good spitter
I thought to myself, I must have the jitters
Until I saw what she wrote in her cat litter
Labels ripped from her cat food cans
Arranged together I could understand
“Iams friskie, your cat chow pro plan”

And her cat is unstable and follows me around
Looking real cute but giving me frowns
I’m coming for you, Jim
But you don’t know when, that’s when the fun begins
That’s when Cindy Cat strikes my friend

This nice little visit was turning in a hurry
Something out of American Horror Story
But Cindy took my hand and said with a boast
“Of all my on-air mates your my favorite co-host”
“Like all the others your so dear to me.
I’m going to bury you in the basement you see.
Just like in that old Gary Grant movie.”

And as those words took the blood out my face
Her home did remind me of a place
Of a scene out of “Arsenic and Old Lace”

And her cat is unstable and Cindy Simmons too
What’s a poor Presidential loving boy to do
Goodbye to all my pals
And to you Nolan, your the best I’ve ever knowing
So I give you my final eye-rolling

Huron Lord
I want more
That you ask for
Huron Lord

I need to be a better man
In this World to understand
The test of time will only tell
Heaven’s door from the Gates of Hell

I will not ask for your regrets
You made me swear I’d never forget
I hope you know the lenght I’ve gone
To the ends of the Earth and beyond

Huron Lord
I want more
That you ask for
Huron Lord

I walk upon this winding road
A cold wind blows on the cobblestone
Been through the desert,’cross the sea
In search of you while losing me

Years have gone but the tears remain
Passed by the days that call your name
I wonder if you are still alive
When I look in the lonesome starless skies

Huron Lord
I want more
That you ask for
Huron Lord

( Instrumental )

Run away with me and it will all make sense
Asking your forgiveness in my own defense
I’m just a man but the World be damned
I was born to love..That’s who I am

Huron Lord
I want more
That you ask for
Huron Lord

Huron Lord
Huron Lord
Huron Lord





Desert Pearl

19 09 2014

Between the shadows of the ancient sandstones
Through the narrows and the temple throne
The virgin river washes away all your sins
To the brave of heart to reach the journey’s end

The Court of Patriarchs they hold the key
To where the Weeping Rock slowly bleeds
Sinawava and it’s panoramic trails
Never ceases to amaze without fail

The Desert Pearl will heighten you
Bring you back to earth it’s true
Towering canyons make your heart soar
To new heights you haven’t been before

The colors and senses will astound
As you try to express the emotion to be found
Let your eyes trace the landscape
Breathtaking reaches of the sky you can’t escape

The treasure of the gods are nestled amid
The mysterious slot canyons that lay within
Kokopelli casts his musical spell and voice
Tilt your head back. Look up. You have no choice

The Desert Pearl will heighten you
Bring you back to earth it’s true
Towering canyons make your heart soar
To new heights you haven’t been before

Saving Gutenberg
Pictures without words
All those who see
The beauty that’s to be
For summertime fireflies glow

Preserve creativity
Share what’s inside of me
Foster your time
Pressed into etched lines
For Miro and Dear Picasso

Complex nature, multi-layered
Observations, countless iterations
Cultural immersion, free hand illusions
Reflex the subtle, complex nature of the World

(Instrumental)

Artwork to share
Make those aware
Cultures that evoke
Where words are best unspoke
A parcel canvas penciled under the sky

Many in the past
Instruct us what will last
Can only hope and pray
As I do every day
Hard press for the truth to never die

Complex nature, multi-layered
Observations, countless iterations
Cultural immersion, free hand illusions
Reflex the subtle, complex nature of the World

Saving Gutenberg
Pictures without words
A quest to unearthed roots
Landscapes hidden truths
For summertime fireflies glow





San Diego Radio

Mexican Radio ( Wall of VooDoo )

This is the story of a DJ
Whose career has spanned the US of A
Playing the hits up and down the dial
In between giving laughter and smiles
Over twenty years at the same station
Now is not the time for early vacation
Pack up Lisa, Connor and the dogs
California bound, sunshine and smog

He’s on San Diego radio
Welcome to the new West Coast, Jack Diamond Show

I dial it up weekdays on the laptop
So much fun and the music’s non stop
And the best thing bout this time zone difference
I sleep till nine and not get up a six

He’s on San Diego radio
Welcome to the new West Coast, Jack Diamond Show
He’s on San Diego radio
Welcome to the new West Coast, Jack Diamond Show

No more snowstorms or cold weather
The worse you have to wear is a sweater
After work there’s no D.C. traffic
Now just the beach and sun…. so fantastic
I would like to say one thing man to man
You’ll be the best wherever you land
But now that your on Tijuana airwaves
Your famous catch phrase is ” Mostrar tu amor babe “

Couch on the Side of the Road

5 08 2014

Stuck in the Middle with You ( Stealers Wheel)

Well, you can have all those furniture stores
From high-end to bargain basement galore
Fancy brands like Lazy-Boy and Broyhill
Their okay but they don’t give me that thrill

Cars to the left of me, a curb to the right
Just love a, couch on the side of the road

Yes, a couch on the side of the road
A hidden treasure that has been tossed out for old
A second life is that sofa’s only wish
To find a good home on Ebay or Craigslist

Cars to the left of me, a curb to the right
Just love a, couch on the side of the road

Well, you might think I’m crazy
And your probably look strange at me
But an old couch is good as new
All they need is a shot of
Febreze, Febreze

Don’t tell me you never passed by
A discarded couch there on the roadside
In your college years you wouldn’t think twice
Your friends would have a place to crash at night

Cars to the left of me, a curb to the right
Just love a, couch on the side of the road

Well, you might think I’m crazy
And your probably look strange at me
But an old couch is good as new
All they need is a shot of
Febreze, Febreze

Well, if you want to you can pay retail
Then add delivery charges as well
But me, I do my shopping when I cruise
So many choices, it’s free, I can’t lose

Cars to the left of me, a curb to the right
Just love a, couch on the side of the road
Yes I love a, couch on the side of the road
Couch on the side of he road
Just love a, couch on the side of the road
