Episode 86: Four Seconds

/ September 9, 2019/ Barenaked ABCs/ 0 comments

We were having major audio problems this week, so luckily we got this episode done in time.  I would say with Four Seconds to spare.  We are without Aaron and Michelle (except via satellite), but luckily we have Jeff Whitmire, straight off his album release, which you can buy on Bandcamp or iTunes (https://jeffwhitmire.bandcamp.com/album/deep-fried-superhero).  I highly recommend you go out and buy this extremely inventive album.

Different Appearance this week 

MWSU had a theater competition where five different people did their videos with this as their skeleton.  I could only find 2 of them. Missouri Western State University Cinema

Four Seconds 

It goes to show it’s not what you know,  

but who you know 

So’s ya know, I can go, flow Bill Monroe 

Then throw to Snow  

For the show stay low, just play it on a Dobro 

Oh, I tiptoe to and fro 

From Ontario, my stereo’s Blue like the Rodeo 

Growin’ like freak-show free-throw this is just the intro, 

Watch it keep droppin’ like dominos 

One Mississippi, Two Mississippi, Three Mississippi, Four 

Now rewind, 

What’d you have in mind? 

Could we unwind? I’m fine, we can find a streamline 

Recombined, intertwined 

If I’m gonna headline, 

I’m inclined to be movin’ all the behinds 

Line to line, I kind of shine 

Redesigned, redefined 

Keepin’ up the spellbind, gotta make it worth the grind 

Just in time to have another close encounter 

Of the third kind 

One Mississippi, Two Mississippi, Three Mississippi, Four 

I’ve been away, four years and a day 

You’d be thinking I’d be lonely 

But I’m out here to stay 

Wouldn’t have it any other way 

Oh flip, the light is turning orange  

Coat ripped when I caught it in the door hinge 

I slipped when the lade in the 4 inch 

Bought it in a store in Germany 

Wore it like a makeshift snowdrift 

Had to get a gift, saw the red shift rift 

When Gretta got an eyelift  

Oh sure that one’s obscure, maybe even piss poor 

But I had to take a little detour 

I’ve been away, four years and a day 

You’d be thinking I’d be lonely 

But I’m out here to stay 

Wouldn’t have it any other way
