I got on the phone and called the girls, said
Meet me down at Curly Pearls, for a
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
In my high-heeled shoes and fancy fads
I ran down the stairs hailed me a cab, going
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Nah Neh Nah

When I pushed the door, I saw Eleanor
And Mary-Lou swinging on the floor, going
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Sue came in, in a silk sarong
She walzed across as they played that
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Nah Neh Nah

Annie was a little late
She had to get out of a date with a
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Curly fixed another drink
As the piano man began to sing that song
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Nah Neh Nah

It was already half past three
But the night was young and so were we,
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Oh Lord, did we have a ball
Still singing, walking down that hall, that
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Ney, Nah Neh Nah
Nah Neh Nah


I gave up all my friends
My girls from out of town
Bought her what she wanted
Yet she let me down
When she saw me crying
She said I had no heart
When my heart was bleeding
She turned around and laughed

Girls don´t cry for Louie
Louie wouldn´t cry for you
When you walk the streets for Louie
You better do what Louie tells you to

I met Louie on a hazy morning
When the bars were closing down
He said honey I really like your prancing
You and I we´ll burn this town

This woman, sir, mislead me
Hurt me in my pride
Who are you to judge me?
Who are you to take her side?
She cheated on me mister
Told me nothing but lies
I just had to teach her
Not to overstep the line

Girls don´t cry over Louie
He wouldn´t waste a tear on you
When you walk the streets for Louie
You ain´t walking down no avenue

I met Louie on a hazy morning
In a sleazy part of town
I was tipsy and feeling kind´a lonely
Louie offered me his arm
He said: you and I we´ll burn this town
He said: you and I we´ll burn this town

Os javardos

Fui de viagem. No dia 20 de Janeiro de 2008, bem cedo -- aí umas 4:00 da matina -- estou com um colega no bar do aeroporto, esperando a hora do voo. O bar é perto da entrada para as portas de embarque, mesmo antes do controle de documentos, após a escada rolante, à esquerda.

De repente um dos empregados pontapeia uma cadeira, dá uns berros em direcção ao balcão e vocifera: "...paneleiro!" entre outros grunhidos incompreensíveis. A discussão entre os empregados do bar continuou, longa e barulhenta. Abandonámos o local, não sei quando nem como terá terminado. Amigos dizem-me que já presenciaram o mesmo fenómeno no mesmo local.

De regresso, no do 26/1/2008. Apanho um táxi para o Campo Grande, onde tenho meu carro. O taxista, após uns momentos de condução, explode: "Campo Grande!? Foda-se!" e mais praguejou sobre a curta corrida que lhe calhara. Não sei o número do taxi, mas sim a matrícula: 83-13-LC.
Iso aconteceu por volta das 14:40.

A quem me devo queixar? E... valerá a pena?

Claro que passei por outros aeroportos e apanhei outros taxis na minha viagem. Mas não vi lá fora javardos como estes...

Rocky Racoon

Now somewhere in the black mountain hills of dakota
There lived a young boy named rocky raccoon
And one day his woman ran off with another guy
Hit young rocky in the eye, rocky didnt like that
He said Im gonna get that boy
So one day he walked into town
Booked himself a room in the local saloon

Rocky raccoon checked into his room
Only to find gideons bible
Rocky had come equipped with a gun
To shoot off the legs of his rival
His rival it seems had broken his dreams
By stealing the girl of his fancy
Her name was magil and she called herself lil
But everyone knew her as nancy

Now she and her man who called himself dan
Were in the next room at the hoe down
Rocky burst in and grinning a grin
He said danny boy this is a showdown
But daniel was hot - he drew first and shot
And rocky collapsed in the corner

Now the doctor came in stinking of gin
And proceeded to lie on the table
He said rocky you met your match
And rocky said, doc its only a scratch
And Ill be better, Ill be better doc as soon as I am able

Now rocky raccoon he fell back in his room
Only to find gideons bible
Gideon checked out and he left it no doubt
To help with good rockys revival

White Rabbit Lyrics

White Rabbit Lyrics
Jefferson Airplane

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small,
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all.
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall.
And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall,
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call.
Call Alice
When she was just small.
When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low.
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know.
When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead,
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head!"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head. Feed your head. Feed your head"
