Billy Joel - Piano Man (yes, it is about a gay bar)

It's nine o'clock on a Saturday
The regular crowd shuffles in
There's an old man sitting next to me
Making love to his tonic and gin
He says, “Son, can you play me a memory?
I'm not really sure how it goes
But it's sad, and it's sweet, and I knew it complete
When I wore a younger man's clothes”

[Refrain]

[Chorus]
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright

[Verse 2]
Now John at the bar is a friend of mine
He gets me my drinks for free
And he's quick with a joke, or to light up your smoke
But there's someplace that he'd rather be
He says, “Bill, I believe this is killing me”
As the smile ran away from his face
“Well, I'm sure that I could be a movie star
If I could get out of this place”

[Refrain]

[Verse 3]
Now Paul is a real estate novelist
Who never had time for a wife
And he's talking with Davy, who's still in the navy
And probably will be for life
And the waitress is practicing politics
As the businessmen slowly get stoned
Yes, they're sharing a drink they call loneliness
But it's better than drinking alone

[Instrumental Break]
[Piano Solo]

[Chorus]
Sing us a song, you're the piano man
Sing us a song tonight
Well, we're all in the mood for a melody
And you've got us feeling alright

[Verse 4]
It's a pretty good crowd for a Saturday
And the manager gives me a smile
'Cause he knows that it's me they've been coming to see
To forget about life for a while
And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, “Man, what are you doing here?”
[Refrain]

You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.
If they kill their own with no conscience, there is nothing to stop them from killing you.
Rational fear and anger at vicious murderous Islamic terrorists is the same as irrational antisemitism, according to the Leftists.

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

-Dwight Eisenhower-


"The [U.S.] Constitution is a limitation on the government, not on private individuals ... it does not prescribe the conduct of private individuals, only the conduct of the government ... it is not a charter for government power, but a charter of the citizen's protection against the government."

-Ayn Rand-

His first hit, IIRC.  About the same time, Harry Chapin released "WOLD."  I ignored all that good advice.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Bought a smart watch a few weeks ago. Last night it assigned me a 'bedtime'. LOL ... had to laugh.
Got an alert out of nowhere. It said, "You're bedtime is in 45 minutes. Get ready."
It has been a lot of years since I had a bedtime. LOL

My watch is not a watch. It is a nurse/nanny I wear on my wrist. Don't know what it does if I disobey it. The watch was right.

I recently heard a guy expounding on vaginas.
His thesis is that a vagina is a portal to another dimension.
He says, "A vagina opens up once in a while and deposits a person on our planet and into our reality."
So a vagina is a portal to infinity, which allows souls on the other side to come forth.
