Makin’ a Memory

Makin’ a Memory
Dedicated to K.Right and J.Ro.
Sittin’ here all lonely
waitin for cheap coffee to perk,
thinking ‘bout the cabbies last night
the first one was a jerk.
But the guy who lugged us home
let us belt out Come Sail Away
while strains of country music
droned behind us as he drove away.
Please don’t tell my rock n’ roll friends
that country music is in my ears.
They’ll think I’m never comin’ home.
It’ll feed their hard rock fears.
They’ll never ask me again
to the sights and sounds of Floyd,
never stay out til three a.m.
They’ll doubt they did all they could.
I’m ready poetry in the mornin’
waitin’ on friends who sleep
after last night’s beer and boot fest
and a wake up call we didn’t keep.
In the past we’ve jammed to Buffet
and long ago – just one time – jazz.
We’ve lost in love, raised up our kids
the time’s gone like nothing else has.
Please don’t tell my rock n’ roll friends
they’ll fault me for leaving my roots –
I already snubbed Idol kickin’ it in town –
they’ll toss me out with my boots.
Who’s baptized in water or drinkin’ dirty beer
who’s got money, who’s got a truck
who’s fallin’ in like with a country star
Hell I’m lovin’ all the stars, who gives a f—-.
Please don’t tell my rock n’ roll friends
I’ve got country music in my ears.
They’ll banish me from Cleveland
and they won’t shed a tear.
Please don’t tell my rock n’ roll friends
I’ve got country music in my ears
but I got one singular excuse,
we’re making a memory then we’re outta here.
Please please please don’t tell…
Please please please don’t tell…
Please please please don’t tell…
