Got Something to Say [version 4.1]

Ask me about the weather,
Ask me what I think’s taboo,
Ask me if I would wear leather,
Or who I pray to?

Ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me what I think of friendship,
Ask me how I feel about love,
Ask me my two cents on money,
Or on happiness?

Ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me about blogging, clear cut logging,
Autobahns and black swans,
Michael Jordan, Bob Dylan,
Islam, Viet Nam,
H-bombs and my Mom.

Yeah ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me what I think of people,
Who’s always got something to say,
But who never asks other people,
For what they’ve got to say?

Cause having an opinion, without discussion,
Thinking one is right, day and night,
Is a plan for, fights and war,
Hot heads, bloodshed,
Lost heads and tears shed.

If we discuss our problems, I think we,
Can mutually find the answers that would be,
Good for you and me!

So where do you stand on abortion?
Would you help someone to die?
Would you allow human cloning?
Or take a killer’s life?

Tell me your opinions, so that we
Can mutually find the answers that would be
Good for you and me.

So let’s talk about global warming
Let’s exchange ideas on world peace
Let’s share thoughts about world hunger
And inequality.

Let’s discuss things over, so that we
Can mutually find the answers that would be
Good for you and me…
And all humanity…
And for the world we lease

Got Something to Say [version 3.14]

Ask me about the weather,
Ask me what I think’s taboo,
Ask me if I would wear leather,
Or Who do I pray to?

Ask me any question, any day
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me how I’d solve global warming,
Ask me how I’d get world peace,
Ask me how I’d end world hunger,
Or inequality?

Ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

But having an opinion, without discussion,
Thinking one is right, day and night,
Is a plan for, fights and war,
Hot heads, blood shed, lost heads and tears shed,
If we discuss our problems, I believe,
We can find the answers that would be,
Good for you and me!

So won’t you please tell me something,
What do you have to say?,
On any one of those things,
Or what strikes your fancy today?

Tell me your opinion, so that we,
Can mutually find the answers that would be,
Good for you and me…

And for humanity.

Ugly Stamps (Song Lyrics)

While sending a gift abroad from Canada,
I came face to faces with a little dilemma.
All the stamps I had bore a pic of the Queen,
More Queen Lizzie Twos than I had ever seen!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! My eyes can’t bear all those ugly royal stares!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! What a scare! I’m gonna have nightmares!

All of those Queens were staring back at me,
Bugaboo-eyed and as wrinkled as could be.
Geriatric clones of the royal kind,
They were horrid enough to make me wanna go blind!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! My eyes can’t bear all those ugly royal stares!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! What a scare! I’m gonna have nightmares!

Phase out those stamps, I begged of Canada Post,
Make stamps that look like art instead of British ghosts!
Those Queenie stamps scared the shit out of me!
They left me scared shitless as anyone could be!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! My eyes can’t bear all those ugly royal stares!
Ah- aaah! Ah- aaah! What a scare! I’m gonna have nightmares!

Ah- aaah! Ah- AHHH!! AH- AHHH!!!
