Flowers on the Wall

Not that I thought to include it on the podcast, but this song entered my brain and won’t go away:

I keep hearin’ you’re concerned about my happiness
But all that thought you’re givin’ me is conscience I guess
If I was walkin’ in your shoes, I wouldn’t worry none
While you ‘n’ your friends are worried about me I’m havin’ lots of fun

Countin’ flowers on the wall
That don’t bother me at all
Playin’ solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one
Smokin’ cigarettes and watchin’ Captain Kangaroo
Now don’t tell me I’ve nothin’ to do

Last night I dressed in tails, pretended I was on the town
As long as I can dream it’s hard to slow this swinger down
So please don’t give a thought to me, I’m really doin’ fine
You can always find me here, I’m havin’ quite a time

Countin’ flowers on the wall
That don’t bother me at all
Playin’ solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one
Smokin’ cigarettes and watchin’ Captain Kangaroo
Now don’t tell me I’ve nothin’ to doIt’s good to see you, I must go, I know I look a fright
Anyway my eyes are not accustomed to this light
And my shoes are not accustomed to this hard concrete
So I must go back to my room and make my day complete

Countin’ flowers on the wall
That don’t bother me at all
Playin’ solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty-one
Smokin’ cigarettes and watchin’ Captain Kangaroo
Now don’t tell me I’ve nothin’ to do

Don’t tell me I’ve nothin’ to do

Where are you, Captain Kangaroo, and your weird hairstyle? This is how some of us are getting through these Covid19 days. Actually (naturally), you can see Captain Kangaroo on YouTube clips. Whither Mr. Green Jeans – don’t see much about him on the old YouTube.

No Captain Kangaroo or Mr. Green Jeans on today’s podcast either. We’re all over the place with songs, including a remembrance of artists recently lost. So let’s listen to Blue Milk, Eric Bibb, Crystal Syphon, Magnum, Sarah Cracknell, Me & the Monster, Peggy Lee, Nellie McKay, James Hunter Six, Fountains of Wayne, Bill Withers, Manu Dubango, Susan Tedeschi, and John Prine.

This podcast is, as always, available to stream or download at brennick.net. There should be more content there, and I will try to put more things up this year. The podcast is also available to download as a podcast at your favorite podcast streamer – iTunes, Stitcher, etc. The podcast is called brennick.net. Check that out sometime. I welcome suggestions and comments, too – leave them as you will. Thanks for everything you do to encourage me.
