I love little baby ducks, old pickup trucks
Slow-movin’ trains and rain
I love little country streams, sleep without dreams
Sunday school in May and hay
And I love you, too
I love leaves in the wind, pictures of my friends
Birds of the world and squirrels
I love coffee in a cup, little fuzzy pups
Bourbon in a glass and grass
And I love you, too
I love honest, open smiles, kisses from a child
Tomatoes on the vine and onions
I love winners when they cry, losers when they cry
Music when it’s good and life
And I love you, too.

I feel I gotta PUFF UP this place a little, next, polkas … it’s always polkas in my mind. There is a Hebrew song, Dayenu, also apropos. Here’s a 70’s ditty. Dedicated to Chaz. Here is the human spirit, do not accept defeat. Knock it aside and put your own spin on it ! please.
Oh Lord it’s hard to be humble
When you’re perfect in every way.
I can’t wait
To look in the mirror.
Cause I get better looking each day.
To know me is to love me.
I must be a hell of a man.
Oh Lord It’s hard to be humble,
But I’m doing the best that I can.
I used to have a girlfriend,
but I guess she just couldn’t compete,
With all of these love-starved women,
Who keep cowering at my feet.
Oh I probably could find me another,
But I guess they’re all in awe of me.
I never get lonesome.
Cause I treasure my own company.
I guess you could say I’m a loner.
A cowboy out lone, tough, and proud.
I could have lots of friends
If I wanted.
But then I wouldn’t stand out from the crowd.
Some folks say that I’m egotistical.
Hell I don’t even know what that means.
I guess it has something to do
With the way that I fill out my skin tight with jeans.
Chaz, it’s gotta be the effect of all those pills you’re swallowing combined. Otherwise, I can’t see WHY.
Look, you’re over the worst – you’ve passed on this side of surgery. You forgot how terrible it was before that? Even if you’re using a walker, it’s still much better than before. I get it, the bill was the last drop – because in itself, it’s just the usual nuisance. I’m sure you’ve dealt with the likes of that many times before.
