I warned you

I feel a song coming up

Nobody wants you when you're down and out -
Nobody wants you when you're up and about -
Nobody wants you -
Nobody wants you -
Why don't you just go home?

Nobody wants you when you're looking like that -
Nobody wants you when you're wearing that hat -
Nobody wants you -
Nobody wants you -
Why don't you just go home?

You come around here with a face full of hair -
You got some vain notion that somebody cares -
You think you're so great -
But you can't keep a beat -
Do something useful with your big ugly feet -

(Dynamite guitar solo)

Maybe we're thankful you for all that you've brought -
But leave us alone cause you're starting to rot -
You sure fooled us once -
But now we know you're a dunce -
Why don't you just -
Why don't you just -
Why don't you just go home?

The tide comes up and the tide goes down -
We want you to take the first boat outa town -
You sang your song -
But you've been here too long -
Hanging around here only proves that you're wrong -

Why don't you just go home?

Why don't you just go home?

et cetera

Now's a good time to leave, 'cause the drummer and the bass player insist on having their solos too, and you definitely don't want to hear any of that.

Especially the bass.

He's even worse than the drummer.

I don't know what made me join this band.

I really don't.

I studied at Juilliard.

Really.

It's depressing...

Well, somehow, I took your bitchin song, and worked it onto FFTR right alongside the two dozen Joan Baez lyrics I had posted recently, but actually adjacent to some other poetry by me, Janet Leith, and Lirone (a new addition stolen from Rick Mobbs blog).

I found a striking image from some bizarre rock group called PARIAH BEAT RADIO. Hope you dig it, professor Savant.

That other poet was actually Janet Leigh Dowd, not Janet Leith, whoever the hell that is. I might have to Goggle her and see what she is about, enit.

Dr. Janet Leith is a Canadian dentist, dude. Hell, who doesn't know that?
