If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe

I'd been married a long time ago

Where did you come from, where did you go?

Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe

I'd been married a long time ago

Where did you come from, where did you go?

Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe

I'd been married a long time ago

Where did you come from, where did you go?

Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe

I'd been married a long time ago

Where did you come from, where did you go?

Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

He came to town like a midwinter storm

He rode through the fields, so handsome and strong

His eyes was his tools and his smile was his gun

But all he had come for was having some fun

If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe

I'd been married a long time ago

Where did you come from, where did you go?

Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe

I'd been married a long time ago

Where did you come from, where did you go?

Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

He brought disaster wherever he went

The hearts of the girls was to Hell, broken, sent

They all ran away so nobody would know

And left only men 'cause of Cotton-Eye Joe

If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe

I'd been married a long time ago

Where did you come from, where did you go?

Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe

I'd been married a long time ago

Where did you come from, where did you go?

Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe

I'd been married a long time ago

Where did you come from, where did you go?

Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe

I'd been married a long time ago

Where did you come from, where did you go?

Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

If it hadn't been for Cotton-Eye Joe

I'd been married a long time ago

Where did you come from, where did you go?

Where did you come from, Cotton-Eye Joe?

 

 

  

I remember that song being in the charts way back years ago. Is as dreadful and catchy now as it was then.

Saw a segment on TV comparing John and Yoko to Harry and Meghan. The guy doing the skit obviously hated John. Brought up the old dinosaur “imagine no possessions” criticism, citing his bed in as silly, etc. The ‘Yoko broke up the Beatles’ thing got aired again. What annoys me most of all is how people treat the John of 1969 or 1972, etc as the John of 1980, or when he actually made the decision to raise Sean. John owned up to his behaviour in his last interviews. It was all well in the past. That’s how the media pigeonholes you. And they never provide context. When the guy said “he didn’t make any good music after leaving the Beatles” I absolutely knew he could be ignored.

The criticism related to the lyrics and John then owning a jumper etc is one of the most pathetic things to have a go at John at. It's one of the most lazy, idiotic criticisms anyone can have towards him or the song. Anyone who raises it should be immediately ignored and walked away from.

Indeed. It’s the type of attack that dismisses his intelligence, humour and creativity and lazily paints him as an idiot. Very insulting considering his level of intellect.

It also completely misses the entire point of 'Imagine ', turning it in a stupid song that only a moron would write when it clearly is not.

Having dealt personally with iTunes customer service, I think I'm finally free of 'Songs of Innocence' reappearing on my devices after it's been deleted for the bazillion time.

A new burger place has opened nearby, and it offers possibly the most bizarre order choice I have ever seen on a menu: If you order a 1/4 or 1/2 pounder burger, you're asked to choose between a 6, 8 or 12 ounce burger:

Bizarre.jpgImage Enlarger

A 1/4 pounder is a 4 ounce burger; not a 6, 8 or 12 ounce burger, meaning they don't actually do a 1/4 ponder. A 1/2 ponder is an 8 ounce burger, not a 6 or 12 ounce burger. What they should be is in the name, and soon as you're asked to choose the weight of burger, in five out of six options only one meets the description!

Who eats a 12oz burger?! A 1/2 pounder is large enough.

This is appropriately named brew, as your music reviews are also pure gold.

That is... hm. a-hard-days-night-paul-10 Surely whoever set up the menu made a mistake when putting it together or something! Even if it was just a mistake, that's certainly annoying.

Oh, and congratul-8-tions on 8000 posts, @The Hole Got Fixed! a-hard-days-night-george-10 Here's to hoping, in another roughly 4 years, you'll have made 8000 more. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Woah, 8000 posts? That's amazing.

Such a gr8 community with so little h8, I'm so glad my f8 was to arrive here and start with a clean sl8. I've certainly spent 8 days a week online here, but not once has it ever felt like I've been carrying a heavy w8 or have had too much on my pl8! 

As us Aussies say, thanks m8.

At any r8, I'll see you all l8r, as it's now after 8.
