Lyricist rides through on a bicycle to sing elliptically to the tune of "Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head" from "Butch Cassidy and ... SPIDER-MAN 2"


Hmmm ... What's this silly song doing smack dab
in the middle of this serious blog? Fits about as well as
it did in those movies somebody decided to stick it in.

Wait. That's not quite right. It got stuck in SPIDER-MAN 2
because somebody had already stuck it into Butch Cassidy
and the Sundance Kid
... a long, long time ago. That makes
it a "Classic" I guess... Yep, and there's all kinds of playful
ways it makes sense ... if you're silly. {grin} Well, anyway ...
Let's sing ... (and experiment in formatting how to "sing")

{smile}


[SUNG TO THE MELODY OF
"RAINDROPS KEEP FALLING ON MY HEAD"
from BUTCH CASSIDY & THE SUNDANCE KID
and -- ever so much more recently -- SPIDER-MAN 2]


[The-] SAME THOUGHTS / keep BUZZ-in'
THROUGH / our HEAD[s]

but THAT / DOES-n't MEAN / that WE / have ALL
BE-COME / brain-DEAD --

CRE-a-TIV-i-TY ... SHOT.

WE'VE GOT / a RES-u-ME / to PROVE (TO "all SMART folks") ...


... we ... are... THE ...

... BEST / THINK-in' / PEO-ple / IN the WORLD.

Just ASK / all the FOLKS / who've GOT the
SAME MAP / WE'VE un-CURLED --

Old-school, phone-call net-

work ... WHAT OTH-er WAY to POW-er ...
IS THERE / but OUR WAY?



[BRIDGE]
We / thought / there / MIGHT ... JUST BE[E]

a-NOTH-er WAY to POW-ER ... BUT the SOU-R, ...

sad TRUTH is ALL ... us B[ZZZZ]-y types ...
know JUST one FLOW-er.




WE / KNOW / the folks we need to KNOW.

Beyond them / lies only strange, / unruly
weeds / that grow ...

off our bee-hive's ra - ...

-dar. ... WE'LL NEV-er NEED to fly
in THEIR weird di-rec-tion ...

... be-cause we're bees ....

And we know what we see[s].



[INSERT TRUMPET SOLO /
HUM IT TO YOURSELF {grin} ]



WE / CAST / the BEST / that we / know HOW.

And WE / KNOW / much bet-ter than
the folks / who've had / a COW.

That's / why we make / T-

V ... NOT / all those peo-ple who applied

... that ... we ... don't ... see.
