  • “Waah-Waah-Waah-Waah-Waah!” (1931)

We we’re walking along just singing this song and didn’t expect'n anything wrong When right there, right then Waah-Waah-Waah-Waah-Waah! 

He was taking me home when I heard a groan I looked around and I’m walking alone, When right there, right then Waah-Waah-Waah-Waah-Waah! 

We we’re rearing to go the lights were low, he said yes and I said no when right there, right then Waah-Waah-Waah-Waah-Waah!

// “When life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons, what the hell am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Stanford Pines lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man who’s gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I’m gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!”

Dear Gus,

If I walk away from you in your crib, you will cry, and so I stand over you and say things like, “You’re a good boy, Gus,” which causes Suki to walk up to me so that she can also be showered with praise. And so I say, “You’re a good girl, Suki.” Back and forth, to you and to her, to you and to her. Forever.
