    Q On breakfast in America supertramp refers to kippers for breakfast.
    I had a friend that was from Newfoundland and his family used to chomp on
    dried salt herring (head and all). They were not expensive,just a newfie snack.
    They called them kippers.
    Was Roger Hodgson just being facetious ?
    I can't picture a Texan munching on a mummified mackeral.

    here's the lyrics

    Could we have kippers for breakfast
    Mummy dear, Mummy dear
    They got to have 'em in Texas
    'Cos everyone's a millionaire

    Can Y'all explain?

    I worked in a deli in Pulaski. The manager was from England. What was in the case to sell? Pickled Herring and kippers.

    I'm a winner, I'm a sinner
    Do you want my autograph?
    I'm a loser, what a joker
    I'm playing my jokes upon you
    While there's nothin' better to do

    A kipper is a whole herring, a small, oily fish, that has been split from tail to head, gutted, salted or pickled, and cold smoked

    One of my favorites:
    The muses dance and sing
    They make the children really ring
    I'll spend the day your way
    Call it morning driving thru the sound and
    In and out the valley.....

    In and around the lake
    Mountains come out of the sky
    and they Stand there
    One mile over we'll be there and we'll see you
    Ten true summers we'll be there and
    Laughing too
    Twenty four before my love you'll see I'll be
    There with you

    I will remember you
    Your silhouette will charge the view
    Of distance atmosphere......
    Call it morning driving thru the sound and
    Even in the valley......

    some more questionable lyrics........
    Here come old flattop he come grooving up slowly
    He got juju eyeball he one holy roller
    He got hair down to his knee
    Got to be a joker he just do what he please

    He wear no shoeshine he got toe-jam football
    He got monkey finger he shoot coca-cola
    He say "I know you, you know me"
    One thing I can tell you is you got to be free
    Come together right now over me

    He bag production he got walrus gumboot
    He got ono sideboard he one spinal cracker
    He got feet down below his knee
    Hold you in his armchair you can feel his disease
    Come together right now over me

    He roller-coaster he got early warning
    He got muddy water he one mojo filter
    He say "one and one and one is three"
    Got to be good-looking 'cause he's so hard to see
    Come together right now over me

    [TD="class: lyr, colspan: 2"] Good stuff Stewie:happy2:
    Do you want to be the pillow where I lay my head,
    Do you want to be the feathers lying in my bed?
    Do you want to be a colour cover magazine;
    create a scene.
    Every day a little sadder,
    A little madder,
    Someone get me a ladder.[/TD]

    Sunday morning creeping like a nun
    Mondays child has learned to tie his bootlace

    Creeping like a nun?

    Pete Sinfield wrote a strange one,called still
      • [SIZE=+1]Still I wonder how it is to be a stream,
        From a dark well constant flowing,
        Winding seawards over ancient mossy wheels
        Yet feel no need of knowing?
        Still I wonder how it is to be a tree,
        Circled servant to the seasons,
        Only drink on sky and rake the winter wind
        And need no seal of reasons?

        Still I wonder why I wonder why I'm here
        All my words just the shaft of my flail
        As I race o'er this beautiful sphere
        Like a dog who his chasing his . . .
        Tailors and tinkers, princes and Incas,
        Sailors and sinkers, before me and like me . . .

        Still I wonder how it is to be a bird,
        Singing each dawns sweet effusions;
        Flying far away when all the world has stirred
        Yet seek no vain conclusions . . . . . .

        Still I wonder if I passed some time ago
        As a bird, or a stream, or a tree?
        To mount up high you first must sink down low
        Like the changeable tides of the
        Caesars and Pharoahs, prophets and heroes,
        Poets and hobos, before me and after me all the
        Painters and dancers, mountainside chancers,
        Merchants and gamblers, bankers and ramblers,
        Winners and losers, angels and boozers,
        Beatles and Bolans, raindrops and oceans,
        Kings, pawns and deacons, fainthearts and beacons,
        Caesars and Pharoahs . . . . . .[/SIZE]

    Ah, the great Pete Sinfield. His lyrics with early King Crimson were just awesome.

    I always liked "blinded by the light" by Bruce Springsteen but under no circumstances whatsoever would I ever allow a little hurly burly to give my anus curly wurly. I have to draw a line somewhere.

    Some people call me Maurice

    All you 'youngsters' think you have weird lyrics....

    try these:

    I know a ditty nutty as a fruitcake
    Goofy as a goon and silly as a loon
    Some call it pretty, others call it crazy
    But they all sing this tune:
    Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
    A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?
    Yes! Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
    A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?

    If the words sound queer and funny to your ear, a little bit jumbled and jivey
    Sing "Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy"
    Oh! Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
    A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you-oo?
    A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?

    2nd best friends girl...the Cars....

    You've got your nuclear boots
    And your drip dry glove
    Oo when you bite your lip
    It's some reaction to love, o-ove, o-ove
    (here she comes again)
