"Well, I got a girl six feet tall
Sleeps in the kitchen with her feet in the hall"
"Well, two old ladies sitting in the sand
Each one wishing that the other was a man"
'Cumberland Gap' - Lonnie Donegan
You can see why skiffle was so popular in the 50's.
'Red Hot', as sung by George in Hamburg has veyr similar lyrics to the "six feet tall" lyrics above which always throws me.
"Well I gotta gal, six feet four, sleeps in the kitchen
With her face at the door"

From the Dead Kennedy's 'The Stars and Stripes of Corruption'
But what can just one of us do
Against all that money and power trying to crush us into roaches?
We won't destroy society in a day
Until we change ourselves first from the inside out
We can start by not lying so much
And treating other people like dirt
It's so easy not to base our lives on how much we can scam
And you know it feels good to lift that monkey off our back
I'm thankful I live in a place where I can say the things I do
Without being taken out and shot
So I'm on guard against the goons trying to take my rights away
We've got to rise above the need for cops and laws
Let kids learn communication instead of schools pushing competition
How about more art and theater instead of sports?
People will always do drugs, let's legalize them, crime drops when the mob can't price them
Budget's in the red, let's tax religion
No one will do it for us, we'll just have to fix ourselves
Honesty ain't all that hard
Just put Rambo back inside your pants
Causing trouble for the system is much more fun
Thank you for the toilet paper, but your flag is meaningless to me
Look around, we're all people, who needs countries anyway?
Our land, I love it too, I think I love it more than you
I care enough to fight the stars and stripes of corruption
Let's bring it all down
Let's bring it all down, let's bring it all down
If we don't try, if we just lie
If we can't find a way to do better than this, who will?

“She said ‘I know a town where life’s a game and baseball’s all that’s real.
At night the faces light up, and the heroes take the field.
Oh I know its not your first time
Yes I know i’ve seen your face before
Maybe in a past life,
or maybe it was last night
I don’t know”
-Widespread Panic - Rebirtha
"The pump don't work cause the vandals took the handles!"
-Bob Dylan, Subterranean Homesick Blues
"We could ride and surf together while our love would grow"
-Brian Wilson, Surfer Girl
