People listen attentively
I mean about future calamity
I used to think the idea was obsolete
Until I heard the old man stamping his feet
This is a place where eternally
Fire is applied to the body
Teeth are extruded and bones are ground
And baked into cakes which are passed around
In the afterlife
You could be headed for the serious strife
Now you make the scene all day
But tomorrow there'll be Hell to pay
Beauty, talent, fame, money, refinement , job skill and brain
And all the things you try to hide
Will be revealed on the other side.
Now the D and A and the M and the N and the A
And the T and the I-O-N
Loose your face
Loose your name
And get fitted for a suit of flames.

Makes me want to dance like a marionette.

Lose your face
Lose your name
These guys are best in a small venue, like an old timey theatre
Jake goes bonkers when he hears them! Then his barking causes them to scurry up the vines and dash across our roof
Terrific show!

I keep hearing an uptempo Jockey Full of Bourbon by Tom Waits.

Both songs are pretty much IV - I progressions in minor keys.

I used to frequent an auto parts store that had a sign saying that any complaints should be directed to the customer service manager, Helen Waite.  If you have a complaint, go to Helen Waite.
Poor Helen, to be saddled with a name like that. Note to unmarried women: if you do tie the knot, make sure to check out any name you might have to take on, and if it's embarrassing/awkward/naff you can always keep your current name.

This song is just unadularated kitsch fun :o)

Chair dancing!


Nice segue ;)
