Wait till September comes back ‘round.
Every sunday we would lie together. We’d be nursing our hangovers from the night before with a orange juice and just a bit of vodka to hurry the process. It was in the time before our lifestyle got to be a little out of control, before the drug use got to be a little more then strictly recreational; before the fighting. But we’d just lie there holding each other and smoking the occasional cigarette and dozing off from time to time. I don’t think you could really call us lovers, just friends who happened to fuck on a regular basis. I never thought I was quite good enough because he would tend to have a wandering eye. But we were comfortable, and it worked for awhile. Eventually, I just had to leave. It wasn’t the romance I needed, he wasn’t the one.
Arlo Guthrie - Alice’s Restaurant
Here’s a musical monologue based on a true story that began on Thanksgiving Day 1965.
This is the song in it’s 18 minutes and 34 second entirety, from Guthrie’s 1967 debut record album, also titled Alice’s Restaurant. It is notable as a satirical, first-person account of 1960s counterculture, in addition to being a hit song in its own right. The final part of the song is an encouragement for the listeners to sing along, to resist the U.S. draft, and to end war.
Sometimes I just think that god is just fucking around with me, putting this woman in my life. I’ve known her almost 4 years and we still get on like the day we met.
I just think the Big Man is gonna peek his head outta the clouds and say, “Hey, Mike Waskom, that was fun, huh? Well, we’re all having a blast up here watching you fumble around, and now it’s time to go, dude.” and then POOF, she’ll be gone.
Those things, things like that happen right?
