Kinky Friedman lyrics - From One Good American To Another

Ramblin' Boy

Original and similar lyrics
(Tom Paxton) He was a man and a friend always He stuck with me in the hard old days. He never cared if I had no dough, We rambled round in the rain and snow. And here's to you, my ramblin' boy, May all your ramblin' bring you joy. Here's to you, my ramblin' boy, May all your ramblin' bring you joy. In Tulsa town, we chanced to stray. We thought that we, we might work one day. The boss said he had room for one, Said my old pal, “We'd rather bum”. And here's to you, my ramblin' boy, May all your ramblin' bring you joy. Here's to you, my ramblin' boy, May all your ramblin' bring you joy. Then late one night in a jungle camp The weather it, it was cold and damp. He got the chills, he got 'em bad, I lost the only friend I had. And here's to you, my ramblin' boy, May all your ramblin' bring you joy. Here's to you, my ramblin' boy, May all your ramblin' bring you joy. My ramblin' pal has rambled on, My ramblin' boy, he's dead and gone. If when we die, we go somewhere, I'll bet you a dollar he's ramblin' there. And here's to you, my ramblin' boy, May all your ramblin' bring you joy. Here's to you, my ramblin' boy, May all your ramblin' bring you joy. May all your ramblin' bring you joy.

One Of Those Days

WEIRD AL YANKOVIC "Polka Party"
Got to work late 'cause my alarm was busted The boss chewed me out and everybody's disgusted 'Cause it's just one of those days It's just one of those days I lost one of my socks in the drier I can't find my wallet and my hair is on fire Just one of those days It's just one of those days I just wrapped my Cadillac around a tree A big swarm of locusts is following me There's not even anything good on TV It's just one of those days It's just one of those days Left all my Beatles records out in the sun Got a Coke bottle stuck on the end of my tongue It's just one of those days Gonna be one of those days The Nazis tied me up and covered me with ants And I spilled toxic waste on my brand new pants Just one of those days Ever have one of those days? The bank called me up and told me I'm overdrawn Some freaks are burnin' crosses out on my front lawn And I can't believe it, all the Cheetos are gone! It just...just one of those, one of those days Just one of those, one of those days The F.B.I. has got a tap on my phone Those darn Russian spies won't leave me alone Shouldn't have got up this morning, shoulda known It's just one of those days It's just one of those days A 747 crashed into my den And there's nothin' but tater tots for dinner again It's just one of those days Never mind, it's just one of those days Big steamroller just ran over my mom And I cut myself shaving and they're dropping the bomb It's just one of those days That's all, it's just one of those days Then late at night, just before I go to bed The world blows up and now everybody's dead You just can't deny it, it's just like I said Just...just one of those, one of those days Just one of those days, one of those days

Ramblin' 'round

Linda Rondstadt "Linda Ronstadt"
written by Woodie Guthrie, Huddie Ledbetter Alan Lomax Ramblin' round your city Ramblin' round your town But I never see a friend I know as I go ramblin' round boys As I go ramblin' round The peach trees they are loaded The branches are bending down Well I pick 'em all day for a dollar, Lord As I go ramblin' round boys As I go ramblin' round Sometimes the fruit gets rotten Falls down on the ground Well there's a hungry mouth for every peach As I go ramblin' round boys As I go ramblin' round My father hoped that I would be Someone of high renown But I am just a refugee As I go ramblin' round boys As I go ramblin' round Ramblin' round your city Ramblin' round your town Well I never see a friend I know As I go ramblin' round boys As I go ramblin' round

First Snow On Brooklyn

JETHRO TULL "The Jethro Tull Christmas Album"
I flew in on the evening plane. Is it such a good idea that I am here again? And I could cut my cold breath with a knife. And taste the winter of another life. A yellow cab from JFK, the long way round. I didn't mind... gave me thinking time before I ran aground on rocky memories and choking tears. I believe it only rained round here in thirty years. Now, it's the first snow on Brooklyn and my cold feet are drumming. You don't see me in the shadows from your cozy window frame. And last night, who was in your parlour wrapping presents in the late hour to place upon your pillow as the morning came? Thin wind stings my face... pull collar up. I could murder coffee in a grande cup. No welcome deli; there's no Starbucks here. A dime for a quick phone call could cost me dear. And the first snow on Brooklyn paints a Christmas card upon the pavement. The cab leaves a disappearing trace and then it's gone. And the snow covers my footprints, deep regrets and heavy heartbeats. When you wake you'll never see the spot that I was standing on. Some things are best forgotten... some are better half-remembered. I just thought that I might be there on your, on your Christmas night. And the first snow on Brooklyn makes a lonely road to travel - cold crunch steps that echo as the blizzard bites.

PRIMER 55 "(The) New Release"
i wake up late for school and i run like hell to try and catch the bus never thought about it but those days ment more than i thought they would. hanging out late with my friends, having fun like punks will do. i never thought those days would ever end so soon. but t ime goes by and all your views on life, they start to change. when you see the world for what it is, it never looks the same. you walk around with a chip on your shoulder. cause everyday you know you're just getting older. [pre-chorus] i never thought it would be it's just a way of life i never though it would be such a petty life i wake up late for work and i drive like hell trying to make ends meat. gotta borrow money cause my baby don't have shit to eat. staying up late, got two jobs, work my fingers to the bone. spending more time at those jobs than i ever spend at home. and i can't help but feel the stress, all my bills keep adding up. it's days like this, wish i was a kid, because i've had enough. look in the mirror, see my face getting older cause everyday i see feel the world getting colder. [chorus] i never thought it would be it's just a way of life i never thought it would be such a petty life all of my memories keep coming back again all mysecurities i'll never have again wanting so much to be, to be myself again give it all back to me i want it back [bridge] bring it back bring it back to me the innocence i felt the happiness i felt no matter what the cost and everything i've lost [repeat chorus] it's how i live my life, so fuck you, get the fuck off my back.

Ramblin' 'Round

ARLO GUTHRIE "Last Of The Brooklyn Cowboys"
Ramblin' around your city Ramblin' around your town I never see a friend I know As I go ramblin' 'round boys As I go ramblin' 'round My mother hoped that I might be A man of some renown But I am just a refugee As I go ramblin' 'round boys As I go ramblin' 'round The peach trees they are loaded The branches bending down I pick 'em all day for a dollar boys As I go 'ramblin 'round As I go 'ramblin' 'round Sometimes the fruit gets rotten And falls on to the ground There's a hungry mouth for every peach As I go ramblin' 'round boys As I go ramblin' 'round
