I's thumbin' through the want ads in the Shelby County Tribune when this classified advertisement caught my eye

It said, "Take imme-di-ate delivery on this '57 Chevrolet half-ton pickup truck

Will sell or swap for a hide-a-bed and thirty-five bucks. Call One-four-oh, ring two, and ask for Bob"

I feel uptight on a Saturday night

Detroit Rock City   KISS

 

I get up and nothin' gets me down

Van Halen    Jump

 

6 lines here, very true recently.

There's somethin' wrong with the world today
I don't know what it is
Something's wrong with our eyes

We're seein' things in a different way
And God knows it ain't his
It sure ain't no surprise

Aerosmith   Livin on the Edge
