Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack

Tom Waits...

That's right, it filets, it chops, it dices, slices,
Never stops, lasts a lifetime, mows your lawn
And it mows your lawn and it picks up the kids from school
It gets rid of unwanted facial hair, it gets rid of embarrassing age spots,
It delivers a pizza, and it lengthens, and it strengthens
And it finds that slipper that's been at large
under the chaise lounge for several weeks
And it plays a mean Rhythm Master,
It makes excuses for unwanted lipstick on your collar
And it's only a dollar, step right up, it's only a dollar, step right up


'Cause it's effective, it's defective, it creates household odors,
It disinfects, it sanitizes for your protection
It gives you an erection, it wins the election
Why put up with painful corns any longer?
It's a redeemable coupon, no obligation, no salesman will visit your home
We got a jackpot, jackpot, jackpot, prizes, prizes, prizes, all work guaranteed
How do we do it, how do we do it, how do we do it, how do we do it
We need your business, we're going out of business
We'll give you the business
Heh.  Tom covered ALL the bases (complete lyrics here)... and that tells me he watches at least as much late-nite teevee as I do.


  1. LOL, old Tom, the speech & language therapy instructor! The master of proper diction! His dulcet tones a joy to behold!

    Can't mistake that guy for anyone else can you, Buck?

    1. Oh, I dunno... I think he and Leonard Cohen sound a bit alike, but Leonard is a lil bit more musical.


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
