Lyrics

Thanks to Brad and John F. for previewing and to Brad for the lyrical tweak.

Lyrics:
Turned down a room
without a robe.
Hope's Sorkin's hungry
But he'll never show.
Please hold his hand.
He's too scared to fly.
But wants to spend his dough
on a G5,
on a G5.
And I can't make this stuff up if I try.
Who could imagine the prattle comin' from this guy?
Bought the house next to him
but that plan went sour.
Michael & Liz ain't movin' in
So on to the Mayflower.
With 2 robes.
Yeah, 2 robes!
Cuz I can't make this stuff up if I try (fade)


*A parody of "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Raitt

Thanks! Jason-that dream is crazy. I don't know what it means. The only thing that would have made it crazier is if Bonnie Raitt drove you to Katie Couric's house who answered the door with a big smile full of gold teeth.

BTW - I just remembered this and it's super weird timing but... Had a dream last night that I was riding in the back of a '65 Lincoln Continental driven by Sharon Van Etten, listening to Rebel Yell on the radio, and talking about how it's a cool song... then the person in the front passenger seat turns around to look at me as she is agreeing... and it's Bonnie Raitt. I'm not even joking. I usually remember having like 3 dreams a year tops... so I have no idea what this means, other than now maybe I need to come up with something for Rebel Yell.

Love this one. One of my favorite songs, brilliant lyrics juxtaposed with such a serious tone, and so incredibly smooth on the vocals. I have started and stopped writing lyrics several times around this chorus... none of it ever close to this.
