Like a sponge

i got a bad flavor
i got dirty clothes
i got a strange neighbor
who doesn't have curtains on her windows

i got a pet hedgehog
drinkin' jaeger all day
you got my crate combo and a baby on the way
but it's ok

it's gonna take a lot of time
before i can cross that finish line
and when i can't take the fall
i really wanna make that call...

--Ben Kweller (Commerce, TX)

"Daddy, what's yay-ger? Why do hedgehogs drink it?" asks the kid out of the blue. And then she goes and sings the whole first and second verses of Commerce, TX. Glad I put my NWA tapes away long ago.
