Mom and David 1942
SWMBO’s mom and stepdad, circa 1942.

Foat Wuth Friday? Wuddat?

Even as these words are being slapped up on the Inter-Bloggy-Net, She Who Must Be Obeyed and I are enroute to the Great State of Texas, there to celebrate the conjoint birthdays of SWMBO’s mom and stepdad. Not only will SWMBO’s siblings be there, but Elder Daughter, fresh from her onstage triumph in last week’s production of My Comic Valentine in Washington, D.C., will be joining us as well!

We’ll be in Foat Wuth - Cowtown! - the gateway to the West and the terminus of the Old Chisholm Trail, where the term “stock market” has nought to do with Wall Street, but lots to do with Meat.

Meanwhile, though, you’ll be wanting some Musical Entertainment... and I’m just the guy to give it to you, thanks to the kind assistance of the iPod d’Elisson.

What’s on the box today? Let’s check it out:
  1. Dachau Blues - Captain Beefheart

    Dachau blues those poor Jews
    Dachau blues those poor Jews
    Dachau blues, Dachau blues those poor Jews
    Still cryin’ ’bout the burnin’ back in World War Two’s
    One mad man six million lose
    Down in Dachau blues, down in Dachau blues
    The world can’t forget that misery
    ’N’ the young ones now beggin’ the old ones please
    To stop bein’ madmen
    ’Fore they have to tell their children
    ’Bout the burnin’s back in World War Three’s
    War One was balls ’n’ powder ’n’ blood ’n’ snow
    War Two rained death ’n’ showers ’n’ skeletons
    Dancin’ ’n’ screamin’ ’n’ dyin’ in the ovens
    Coughin’ ’n’ smoke ’n’ dyin’ by the dozens
    Down in Dachau blues
    Down in Dachau blues
    Sweet little children with doves on their shoulders
    Their eyes rolled back in ecstasy cryin’
    Please old man stop this misery
    They’re countin’ out the devil
    With two fingers on their hands
    Beggin’ the Lord don’t let the third one land
    On World War Three
    On World War Three
