The Streak

Wednesday, May 18, 2011

Look at that, look at that! Ray Stevens 1974

(Reporter):
Hello, everybody, this is your action news reporter with all the news
that is news across the nation, on the scene at the supermarket. There
seems to have been some disturbance here. Pardon me, sir, did you see
what happened?



(Witness):
Yeah, I did. I's standin' overe there by the tomaters, and here he
come, running through the pole beans, through the fruits and vegetables,
nekkid as a jay bird. And I hollered over t' Ethel, I said, "Don't
look, Ethel!" But it's too late, she'd already been incensed.



(Chorus)
Here he comes, look at that, look at that
There he goes, look at that, look at that
And he ain't wearin' no clothes


Oh, yes, they call him the Streak
Look at that, look at that
Fastest thing on two feet
Look at that, look at that
He's just as proud as he can be
Of his anatomy
He goin' give us a peek



Oh, yes, they call him the Streak
Look at that, look at that
He likes to show off his physique
Look at that, look at that
If there's an audience to be found
He'll be streakin' around
Invitin' public critique



(Reporter):
This is your action news reporter once again, and we're here at the gas
station. Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened?



(Witness):
Yeah, I did. I's just in here gettin my car checked, he just appeared
out of the traffic. Come streakin' around the grease rack there, didn't
have nothin' on but a smile. I looked in there, and Ethel was gettin'
her a cold drink. I hollered, "Don't look, Ethel!" But it was too
late. She'd already been mooned. Flashed her right there in front of
the shock absorbers.



(Chorus)
He ain't crude, look at that, look at that
He ain't lewd, look at that, look at that
He's just in the mood to run in the nude



Oh, yes, they call him the Streak
Look at that, look at that
He likes to turn the other cheek
Look at that, look at that
He's always makin' the news
Wearin' just his tennis shoes
Guess you could call him unique


(Reporter):
Once again, your action news reporter in the booth at the gym, covering
the disturbance at the basketball playoff. Pardon me, sir, did you see
what happened?



(Witness):
Yeah, I did. Half time, I's just goin' down thar to get Ethel a snow
cone. And here he come, right out of the cheap seats, dribbling, right
down the middle of the court. Didn't have on nothing but his PF's.
Made a hook shot and got out through the concessions stand. I hollered up
at Ethel, I said, "Don't look, Ethel!" But it was too late. She'd
already got a free shot. Grandstandin', right there in front of the
home team.


(Chorus) (Witness):
Oh, yes, they call him the Streak
Here he comes again.
Look at that, look at that
The fastest thing on two feet
Who's that with him?
Ethel? Is that you, Ethel?
What do you think you're doin'?
You git your clothes on!
Look at that, look at that
He's just as proud as he can be
Of his anatomy

He's gonna give us a peek


Oh, yes, they call him the Streak
Look at that, look at that
Ethel! Where you goin'?
Ethel, you shameless hussy!
He likes to show off his physique
Look at that, look at that
Say it isn't so,
Ethel! Ethelllllll!!!
If there's an audience to be found
He'll be streakin' around
Invitin' public critique

Different Drum

Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Written by Michael Nesmith (of the Monkees!) and performed by Linda Ronstadt and the Stone Poneys in 1967.


You and I travel to the beat,
Of a different drum.
Oh, can't you tell by the way I run.
Every time you make eyes at me. Wo-oh.



You cry and moan and say,
"It will work out."
But, honey child, I've got my doubts.
You can't see the forest for the trees.



Oh, don't get me wrong,
It's not that I knock it.
It's just that I am not in the market,
For a boy who wants to love only me.



Yes, and I ain't sayin' you ain't pretty,
All I'm sayin'-- I'm not ready,
For any person place or thing.
To try and pull the reins in on me.



So, good-bye, I'll be leavin'.
I see no sense in this cryin' and grievin'.
We'll both live a lot longer,
If you live without me.



[Short instrumental break.]

    I think I remember reading about the correction tape (or was it White-out?)

    A number of years ago I saw a biography of Michael Nesmith (i'm pretty sure it was him. It was one of the Monkees) and learned that his mother actually had the idea for the correction tape I think it was that you use on typewriters (way before computers, I haven't touched a typewriter in years!). She got a scientist friend to help her develop it. I thought it was interesting.

Written in 1965 by Otis Redding, but Aretha Franklin's signature song since 1967 in a role reversal.


Hey, what you want, baby I got it

All I'm askin' is for a little respect when you come home
(Just a little bit) Yeah, baby baby baby
(Just a little bit) When you come home
(Just a little bit) Hey

(Just a little bit) Hey baby
(Just a little bit) Baby when you get home
(Just a little bit) Hey hey hey
(Just a little bit) Yeah yeah yeah



I'm about to give you all of me money (Mmm)
And all I'm askin' in return honey

(Justa justa justa justa justa justa justa justa) Ooh when you get home
(Just a little bit) Do it for me now yeah
(Just a little bit) Mmm



Ooh, your kisses, sweeter than honey
Ooh, guess what, so is my money
And all I need, hey, just a little respect when you get home
(Just a little bit) Hey baby
(Just a little bit) When you get home
(Just a little bit) Do it for me now yeah
(Just a little bit)

Hey baby, yeah yeah yeah yeah

Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I'm feeling much better today - no longer drugged out from the meds and the headache is gone!

A letter from camp by Allan Sherman in 1963.

Hello Muddah, hello Fadduh,
Here I am at Camp Granada.
Camp is very entertaining,
And they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining.


I went hiking with Joe Spivey.
He developed poison ivy.
You remember Leonard Skinner.
He got ptomaine poisoning last night after dinner.


All the counselors hate the waiters,
And the lake has alligators.
And the head coach wants no sissies,
So he reads to us from something called Ulysses.


Now I don't want this should scare ya,
But my bunk mate has malaria.
You remember Jeffrey Hardy.
They're about to organize a searching party.


Take me home, oh Muddah, Fadduh,
Take me home, I hate Granada,
Don't leave me out here in the forest, where
I might get eaten by a bear.


Take me home, I promise I will not make noise,
Or mess the house with other boys.
Oh please don't make me stay,
I've been here one whole day.


Dearest Fadduh, darling Muddah,
How's my precious little Bruddah?
Let me come home if you miss me.
I would even let Aunt Bertha hug and kis me.


Wait a minute, it stopped hailing.
Guys are swimming, guys are sailing.
Playing baseball, gee that's better.
Muddah, Fadduh, kindly disregard this letter!

    So glad you're feeling better! I woke with a headache, but it's still rainy/icky and I'm sure it had more to do with that than anything (darned barometer!).
