    Let's put a new coat of paint
    On this lonesome old town
    Set 'em up, we'll be knocking 'em down
    You wear a dress
    Baby I'll wear a tie
    We'll laugh at that old bloodshot moon
    In that Burgundy sky

    I only made it as far as "Every post in this thread will be a line or more from Tom..." Silly me...
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    He said: you cannot live in the ocean. And she said to him: you never can live in the sky. But the ocean is filled with tears, and the sea turns into a mirror. There's a whale in the moon when it's clear, and a bird on the tide.

    Well with buckshot eyes and a purple heart
    I rolled down the national stroll
    With a big fat paycheck strapped to my hip sack
    And a shore leave wristwatch beneath my sleeve...

    Well things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
    The boys just dive right off the cars and splash into the street
    And when they're on a roll she pulls a razor from her boot
    And a thousand pigeons fall around her feet

    Well I don't want no Anna Zabba

    Don't want no Almond Joy

    There ain't nothing better

    Suitable for this boy

    Well it's the only thing

    That can pick me up

    Better than a cup of gold

    See only a chocolate Jesus

    Can satisfy my soul
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I shot the morning in the back with my redwings on, told the sun he'd better go back down. If I can find a book of matches, I'm going to burn this hotel down. You've got to tell me, brave captain, why are the wicked so strong? How do the angels get to sleep when the devil leaves the porchlight on?

    God builds a church
    The devil builds a chapel
    Like the thistles that are growing
    'round the trunk of a tree
    All the good in the world
    You can put inside a thimble
    And still have room for you and me

    Auntie Mame has gone insane
    She lives in the doorway of an old hotel
    And the radio is playing opera
    All she ever says is 'go to hell'.
