  1. Jim Croce Roller Derby Queen Gonna tell you a story that you won't believe But I fell in love last Friday evenin' With a girl I saw on a bar room TV screen Well I was just gettin' ready to get my hat When she caught my eye and I put it back And I ordered myself a couple o' more shots and beers Chorus: The night (you know) that I fell in love with a Roller Derby Queen (Round 'n' round, oh round 'n' round) The meanest hunk o' woman That anybody ever seen Down in the arena She is a five foot six and two fifteen A bleached-blonde mama with a streak of mean She knew how to knuckle And she knew how to scuffle and fight And the roller derby program said That she were built like a 'fridgerator with a head The fans called her "Tuffy" But all her buddies called her "Spike" Chorus Round 'n' round, go round 'n' round (3 x's) Well I could not help it but to fall in love With this heavy-duty woman I been speakin' of Things looked kind of bad Until the day she skated into my life Well she might be nasty she might be fat But I never met a person who would tell her that She's my big blonde bomber My heavy handed Hackensack mama Chorus Round 'n' round, go round 'n' round (3 x's)

    Tupelo Honey

    Dedicated to the Funkiest person I've ever known. From www.wisegeek.com Tupelo honey includes table and baking grades of honey made from the blossoms of the tupelo gum tree, nyssa aquatica. The tupelo gum tree grows in flooded forest areas in states such as Florida, Louisiana, Georgia and Virginia as well as along the Mississippi River, but tupelo honey is mainly only produced commercially in areas along the Choctawhatchee, Apalachicola and Ochlockonee rivers. Tupelo honey made from the white tupelo gum tree, nyssa ogeche, is top quality table honey and is valued for its uniquely delicious flavor and its inability to granulate. White tupelo honey is sometimes called fine tupelo honey and is the most expensive honey because it is the most expensive to produce. Care must be taken by the beekeepers to clean the combs at the right time so that when the white tupelo gum tree blossoms, only the honey from these blossoms is collected. White tupelo honey is a prized, sweet and delicious light amber table honey with a greenish hue to it and it won't granulate or crystallize. Black tupelo honey is made from the blossoms of the black tupelo gum tree, nyssa sylvatica, and it produces a darker honey that will granulate. Black tupelo is not prized for table honey and is often used as a bakery grade honey. Both white and black types of tupelo honey are produced by placing bees on platforms on the tupelo gum trees in the spring months. As the bees travel through the swamps they produce the honey from the gum trees' nectar. If top quality white tupelo honey is mixed with any other type of honey such as black tupelo, wildflower or gallberry, it will granulate. Only fine white tupelo honey won't granulate or crystallize. The delightful taste of pure white tupelo honey can be savored on hot buttered toast or cold vanilla ice cream as well as on or in many other foods. Sing it, Van...... Tupelo Honey.....

  11. Tony Baloni and I are practically neighbors..
  12. This is to correct my earlier mis-post, apologies to all for putting the following in the "Fogies" thread. This stuff is timeless.... The Mills Brothers - "Cab Driver" My favorite piece of music ever, Santo and Johnny, "Sleepwalk" Acker Bilk - "Stranger On The Shore" This melody is just simply gorgeous... Percy Faith - "Theme From A Summer Place" I called a local oldies station and whistled this one to the DJ, and he cheerfully gave me the title that had been eluding me for years, Bent Fabric, "Alley Cat" This was Gramma's favorite, and she always wanted me to dance with her at weddings to it. I miss her, a lot..Hit it Al, Al Martino - "Spanish Eyes" This guy's voice makes me think of my Mom and Dad's console stereo, real oak, red cloth speaker grills, big as a chest freezer.. Jerry Wallace - "Primrose Lane" The prettiest father/daughter duo, Frank and Nancy Sinatra, "Something Stupid" I'm not a huge Sinatra fan, but I do love this song. Frank Sinatra, "Summer Wind" God I love this version. Ray Charles, "I Can't Stop Loving You"
  13. Lovely Katie. You share your Birthday with the one and only Gene Simmons. WOOOHOOOOOO! Have a good one Honey.
  14. Do you remember lying in bed With your covers pulled up over your head? Radio playin' so no one can see We need change, we need it fast Before rock's just part of the past 'Cause lately it all sounds the same to me Oh oh oh oh, oh oh "Do You Remember Rock and Roll Radio?" The Ramones.
  15. You scored 100/100 points Full Shred! You know your axes! I scored 100 - Full Shred! - on the Name the Guitarist Quiz
  16. My God, will there ever be anyone else that will be as cool? No Wiki links because they wouldn't have wanted that. Rock 'N Roll High School We Want The Airwaves Time Has Come Today I Wanna Be Sedated The KKK Took My Baby Away Rockaway Beach Pet Semetary Blitzkreig Bop Poison Heart I Don't Want To Grow Up Baby I Love You (A true gem) Sheena Is A Punk Rocker. The funniest excerpt from the Ramones "Anthology" disc is from their road manager. He was driving them in a van from gig to gig. They had stopped for gas, and a woman approached him and commended him for taking 'those retarded men out for the day.' Gabba Gabba Hey!
  17. You never fail to make me laugh out loud. Honey, I forgot all about ol' Colonel Angus....
  18. That "I kissed a Girl" song. If it comes back on, I'll shut the radio off with a ball-peen hammer. Swear to God.
  19. Erm, Angus, Ontario that is... Sigh. I know. Dumb. But it was funny at the time....
  20. The beginning has a subtle whiff of Neil Young's "Helpless" in it. I liked it a lot Chris.
