House of Words radio driving a cadillac wooden menu frame














My Hair Went 80 in '66

flag-flapping

through the slip stream off
my caddy's air-bender hood

 while the smooth & easy radio
 made cool frequencies:

Help me, help me,
help me sail awaaaaay.
Give me two good reasons
why I oughta staaay.


A shiftless, malingering song
loitered in my ears for days

pure and simple Kinks

so easy to convince my mind
it was just a lazy radio
in my head

born to slip along
and want one thing:

To live this life of luxury,
lazin' on a sunny afternoon.

In the summertime.
In the summertime.
