General lyrically noted:



Come on then, where are the lyrics to the New York and LA songs? And I hope you've got Chicago all lined up and ready to roll...

Hi, my name is Stereo Mike.
Yeah, we got three tickets to the Bran Van concert
happening this Monday night at the Pacific Pallisades.
You can all dial in if you want to answer
a couple of questions, namely,
what is Todd's favourite cheese.
Jackie just called up and said it was a form of Roquefort.
We'll see about that...
Give us a ring-ding-ding! It's a beautiful day.
Yeah Todd, this is Liquid ring-a-ding-a-dinging,
want those three Bran Van tickets man. Waddya think?
Todd, you there?
I woke up again this morning with the sun in my eyes,
When Mike came over with a script surprise.
A Mafioso story with a twist,
A "Too Wong Foo, Julie Newmar" hitch,
Get your ass out of bed, he said:
I'll explain it on the way.
But we did nothing, absolutely nothing that day, and I say:
What the hell am I doing drinking in L.A. at 26?
I got the fever for the flavour, the payback will be later, still I need a fix.
And the girls on the bus kept on laughing at us,
As we rode on the ten down to Venice again.
Flaring out the G-Funk,
Sipping on a juice and gin,
Just me and a friend.
Feeling kinda groovy,
Working on a movie. (Yeah right!)
But we did nothing, absolutely but kiss that day, and I say:
What the hell am I doing drinking in L.A. at 26?
With my mind on my money and my money on my... Beer, beer!
I know that life is for the taking, so I better wise up, and take it quick.
Yeah, one more time at Trader Vic's.
Some men there wanted to hurt us,
And other men said we weren't worth the fuss.
We could see them all bitching by the bar,
About the fine line, between the rich and the poor.
Then Mike turned to me and said:
"What do you think we got done son?"
We've got a conclusion, and I guess that's something, so I ask you:
What the hell am I doing drinking in L.A. at 26?
I got the fever for the nectar, the payback will be later, still I need a fix.
We need to fix you up, call me Monday and maybe we'll fix it all up.
Hell-A-L.A., Hell hell-A-L.A.! ...
So I ask you:
What the hell am I doing drinking in L.A. at 26?
Hell-A-L.A., Hell hell-A-L.A.

On a rooftop in Brooklyn
One in the morning
Watching the lights flash
In Manhattan
I see five bridges
The empire state building
And you said something
That I've never forgotten

We lean against railings
Describing the colours
And the smells of our homelands
Acting like lovers
How did we get here?
To this point of living?
I held my breath
And you said something

And I am doing nothing wrong
Riding in your car
Your radio playing
We sing up to the eighth floor
A rooftop, in Manhattan
One in the morning
When you said something
That I've never forgotten
When you said something
That was really important

Once in your life you will find her
Someone who turns your heart around
And next thing you know
You're closing down the town
Wake up and it's still with you
Even though you left her way across town
Wonderin' to yourself
Hey, what have I found

When you get caught
Between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy
But it's true
If you get caught
Between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do
The best that you can do
Is fall in love

Arthur, he does as he pleases
All of his life his master's toys
And deep in his heart he's just
He's just a boy
Living his life one day at a time
He's showing himself a pretty good time
He's laughing about the way
They want him to be

When you get caught
Between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy
But it's true
If you get caught
Between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do
(The best that you can do)
The best that you can do
Is fall in love

---- Instrumental Interlude ----

When you get caught
Between the moon and New York City
I know it's crazy
But it's true
If you get caught
Between the moon and New York City
The best that you can do
(The best that you can do)
The best that you can do
Is fall in love...

I love this song

Just rocked into Chicago - a mere 3 1/2 hour flight from San Fran. We're staying about 6 miles north of downtown but we're right on Lake Michigan and the hostel is well friendly.
Sears Tower is on the list and the planetarium but beyond that, hey maybe I'll just wander the streets soaking in Chicago like a moist towelette.

#Come on. Tell me doncha wanna go back to that same old place - sweet home chicago!

Chicago, Chicago that toddling town
Chicago, Chicago I will show you around - I love it
Bet your bottom dollar you lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago
The town that Billy Sunday couldn't shut down

On State Street, that great street, I just want to say
They do things they don't do on Broadway
They have the time, the time of their life
I saw a man, he danced with his wife
In Chicago, Chicago my home town

Chicago, Chicago that toddlin' town
Chicago, Chicago I'll show you around - I love it
Bet your bottom dollar you lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago
The town that Billy Sunday could not shut down

On State Street, that great street, I just want to say
They do things that they never do on Broadway -- say
They have the time, the time of their life
I saw a man and he danced with his wife
In Chicago, Chicago, Chicago -- that's my home town

Last night in the US tonight. Tomorrow we have to hop on a plane at half 3 to bring us back to the homeland Ah well, it's been an awesome holiday.
Couldn't have asked for better weather on the last day - bright sunshine and clear skies completely contrasting with the pea soup fog from yesterday (which still allowed a visit ot the Planetarium and Hooters number 4). We managed to get in the Sears Tower (tall) and the aquarium (fishy with performing dolphins) plus a visit to a proper old Chicago speakeasy and jazz club up town. Trouble is that we had a couple of drinks and then wandered off to grab a Chinese before the Jazz started. When we got back half an hour later the bouncer (laaaarge with tatoos) demanded $12 from us for entry and along with ID which we had forgotten. Grrrr.
Still though, last morning will be about getting last bits of Hersheys and Twinkies for those back home and having brunch by the lake. Aaahhhh. Then it's 12 hour of travelling before hitting Manchester at about 8.45 Sunday morning.
And guess what - I have to be in work in Birmingham for the night shift on Sunday night!!!!! Talk about diving straight back into it!
