hit records

G money jabbed me in the ribs
all night long
so i'm feeling a bit like mo ali this morning

i don't know what came over me last post
i didn't quite feel like myself
it was like someone else
someone else named dave was writing those firm
yet poetic words
half Shakespearean
1/3 vermilion
i could've been a contender
now i'm a comedian

last night
matt john and i
agreed to launch HIT RECORDS
our motto...

"it ain't worth a shit if it's not a HIT!!!"

remember STIFF?
the only label ever with a personality
the plan is to shamelessly cop every move
STIFF ever made
including the signing of elvis costello and the damned
anyone know what they're up to these days?
'cause there's a new megalabel in town
looking to sign EVERYBODY without a deal
we offer no stiffs
only hits
we're already in litigation
with everybody
our interns
have gold records
our janitors
the medallions around my neck
didn't get there from mr. T concerts
HIT records is ready to conquer the universe
a kamikaze record label
with a barcode army

i'm getting really anxious about the show tomorrow night
my mom might even come
although i'm expecting a last minute bail
she's only seen me play once
which is one more time than dad
it was way back in '92
when the MF played el paso
i remember how excited she was after the show
she kept saying how impressive and professional we were
i'd like for her to see me now
that i'm myself
and not someone pretending to be someone else
i hope she decides to come

gotta go work on my next hit record

so now that you are possibly 1/3 comedian, ( i think, if i did the math correctly) can we expect 2/3's music friday and 1/3 jokes??? and does that count as 1 or 2 shows?

key lime pie really changes life doesn't it.

see you at the granada.
