Wee Willie was walking past his parents’ bedroom in the middle of the night, in search of a glass of water. Hearing a lot of moaning and thumping, he peeks in and catches his folks in The Act. Before dad can even react, Wee Willie exclaims “Oh, boy! Horsie ride! Daddy, can I ride on your back?” Well Daddy, being a little relieved that Willie’s not asking more uncomfortable questions, and seeing the opportunity not to break his stride, agrees. Willie hops on and Daddy starts going to town. Pretty soon Mommy starts moaning and gasping. Willie cries out “Hang on tight, Daddy! This is the part where me and the delivery guy usually get bucked off!”
All my Song Lyric posts will be songs that influenced the young and naive Jerry (still working on that growing up thing) as I made my way through life. Each song will hold a fond memory for me and hopefully a small amount of entertainment for you. Most of them will be from so long ago that all you young’ens will probably just laugh at them.
Mama strikes me
And I draw a breath and cry
Above me a cloud
Slowly tumbles through the sky
I am glad, to be alive
It is my seventh day
I taste the hunger
And I cry
My Brother and sister
Cling to Mama’s side
She squeezes her breast
But it has nothing to provide
Someone weeps, I fall asleep
It is twenty days
Mama does not hold me
I open my mouth
But I am to weak to cry
Above me a bird slowly crawls across the sky
Why is there nothing
Now to do but die?

I throw on my headphones to tune out the world and this is one of the songs I listen to. It reminds me of the things that really matter to me in life. It tells me that no matter how bad I think things are, there are always people in this world who would rejoice at what I’ve been blessed with. I often contemplate the words written on Harry Chapin’s epitaph – Oh, if a man tried To take his time on Earth And prove before he died What one man’s life could be worth I wonder what would happen To this world Wouldn’t it be lovely if when it’s our time to kneel before the throne, we can say that we did all we could and held nothing back. I know I have a lot of work left to do.

Columbus Day (Observed) – In honor of the man that did almost everything wrong (see my post from 10/11/2019) we close down all the banks, post office, business, congress and just about everything in the country to observe this day. If we’re going to celebrate Columbus Day, at least there should be football on all day like on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Kick Butt Day – No, it doesn’t mean dragging your noisy neighbor, the one that insists on playing music on the highest volume setting until the wee hours of the morning every night and showing them what the steel toe of your work boot is for. It’s a day set aside to take stock in your achievements and to set new goals for you to work harder and smarter to achieve. Created by the CEO of some company I’m sure.
Dessert Day – With Autumn now in full glory, we find ourselves spending more and more time indoors as those nights get longer and colder. That means football on television, lots of coffee in the pot, or beer in the fridge, and snacks. What better snack could there be than a sugar loaded cake or a plate of hot chocolate chip cookies. So as the snow gets closer, turn on the oven and dust off that old family recipe book and get started.
