These curtain rod characters embark on a trip Let's give 'em some topics to talk about Hey, what's your take on guided navigation? Is it ruining our ability to read maps? How do you feel about velcro versus laces? I don't have a strong stance on that But it could be talked about Mosquito Coast (4x) Hey, what's your take on guided meditation We could talk about stem cells and slot machines Is groundwater potable? Seventeen-nineteenths into the trip Is flyswatting ethical? Nineteen-nineteenths into the trip I just have so many questions
A puddle jumper's puddle jumper A nutritionist's nutritionist An antebellum's antebellum A crane operator’s crane operator A bible thumper's bible thumper A bible thumper's bible thumper An Actress' Actress In this segment I will pay homage to One thing or another
I want to be buried 'neath a weeping elm After there's no one at the helm I want to be buried 'neath the weeping conifer Until I get a better offer I want to be buried 'neath the weeping fig Unless there's a better place to dig I want to be buried 'neath the weeping birch After I offload all my merch I want to be buried 'neath the weeping willow Let the branchlets serve as my pillow I want to be buried 'neath the weeping beech And I want that Beech to weep I want to be buried 'neath the weeping conifer Until I get a better offer
I don't want to mispronounce her name Emahoy Guebrou is an Ethiopian composer She plays the piano in a monastery in Jerusalem now The way she plays the piano Affects me in a way It affects me in such a way that I wish I'd gone to DC to see her back in '08 But I didn't know of her then And I listen so often
I don't want to mispronounce his name He's earned a modest fame He's an Armenian finswimmer Ten world records and a bevy of medals One day after training He saw a trolleybus crash into the lake 92 people were trapped 33 feet underwater He saved 20 lives in 30 dives He saved 20 lives and finally collapsed on the shore Frigid polluted water and cuts from the glass shards Put him in a coma for 45 days He recovered but not to compete again A badge of honor was issued and the fan mail came in And UNESCO took notice Nine years later he noticed a fire At the Soviet Armenian sports hall He ran inside the burning building and pulled people out Ended up in the hospital, a hero again Why do we have Columbus day And not a Shavarsh day instead?
Hey what's the deal with this new deal? Here are a few to get started with Hot Dam The Hoover Dam had an average temperature Of about 120 degrees That's in Fahrenheit In the summer of '31 A Shining exterior The Timberline Lodge in Oregon Served as the Overlook Hotel For the establishing shot in the famous film 6,000 feet above sea level Go south about 800 miles and you can also observe The Griffith Observatory Tunnels of Love The Blue Ridge Parkway has 26 tunnels in hundreds of miles Through Virginia and North Carolina The Lincoln Tunnel between New York and New Jersey Is decidedly not a tunnel of love This bridge gets me to and fro each day The twenty-ninth street bridge in Baltimore crosses the Jones Falls valley. Granted, it's made out of granite; we also have some great Post Office murals nearby too La Guardia Airport was built on the site of the Gala Amusement Park Don't forget about all those ski jumps and culverts and sewage treatment plants too
I’ll keep the songs brief they’re best in small doses Omit the chorus it’s better implied It's better for the verses Gently remind the album cover art that it's in my employ now I'll keep the shredfest to a minimum at best But don't be afraid to try to make a pretty coda I promised to keep the songs short To enunciate the words So that they may act on my behalf as docents
If I Require A heady heavy welcome A heady heavy welcome back Welcome back Hark! Harkens back to a time When Rip Van Winkle When Rip Van Winkle was my idol He was my idol
