Song Lyric Sunday : Your Father and I

This  part  of  Song Lyric  Sunday  from   Helen Espinosa

here is  the Pingback

Now  I love  Beautiful  South  because  they  write  about  real life. This  particular  song is  about  how  an  embittered  wife  see’s  the  conception  of  her  son  in  a totally  different  light  to , laddish  husband  who  seems  to be looking  at  things  through  rose  coloured  glasses  while  his  wife   most definitely  has  no  such  blinkers on! It  is  a great  story   and  the video  is  brilliantly  made ! This  is  my  first  entry  to  this  challenge  so  I hopen  I  have  gone  about  this  correctly!


It was the middle of winter
And I drove us in my car
Well, the snow started fallin’
So we stopped off at a bar

When the beer jugs started flowin’
And your mother and I took the floor
But by the last dance we were tired
So I booked a room next door

So if anyone asks you
“If you come from heaven above”
You’re from a one star motel
With a five star passionate love

It was a hot summers day
(Hey, hey)
And we drove there in our car
And your father was thirsty
So we had to find a bar

Well he wouldn’t stop drinking
And he couldn’t stand on his feet
We had to walk to a hotel
And book ourselves into a suite

So if the teacher asks you
“Are you from heaven or are you from hell?”
You’re from a one star drunken screw
In a one star motel

Yes, if the teacher asks you
“Are you from heaven or are you from hell?”
You’re from a pitch black toilet
In a highway Taco Bell

I’ll remember the birth
For the rest of my time on this land
You’re mother’s sweating buckets
And me holdin’ onto her hand

Well your father was absent
He claimed he couldn’t find the ward
Just tugging on mescal
Trying to eat the umbilical cord

So if anyone asks you
“Do you know where you’re from?”, say, “Yes”
You’re from your mother’s womb
And your father’s stinking breath

And if they ask you, how you got here?
Tell ’em just what it took
Your father’s stinking breath
And your mother’s stinking mood

Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Won’t tell the truth

Aha, hey
Aha, aha
(Hey, hey)
Na na na na na na na na
(Hey, hey)

Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I

Every single  one  is  calorie  free! Plus of course  we now have spirits  and liquors  to warm the coldest of  you.

If we were having  Coffee: I would ask  you what  has been going on in your world this week, has  anything  deeply affected  you, have  you need a sympathetic ear, a shoulder to cry  on or  just  needed someone  to make  you laugh! If  yes  feel free to talk it out  here  with us. We will all help if  we can.

Lets  join  everyone  here  and  all the  other  “IF  WE  WERE  HAVING  COFFEES”

If we were having Coffee: I would  remind  you  that  there  are lots of  other  coffee mornings  all shared  and organized  By  Diana  and  Gene’O  over at,Part time monster  

If  we  were having  Coffee : I get  you  settled  comfortably   and  then I  would  reiterate   what  Paul  has  said  about  the  Airshow  disaster  at  Shoreham. It  was  terrible   and  such a shame  people out in the  sun  expecting   a  great  day  and  then tragedy   strikes. So  many  lives  lives  are  now  changed  forever  and  all in  the  blink of  an  eye. Read  more  here.

If we were having  coffee : I  would  tell  you it has  been a  very  busy  week  and  I have  almost  met  myself  coming  backwards. It  has  been a  strange  time  full of  contradictions, like  the  weather  changeable. All the  normal  things  blend in to a  mess  as I  look back over  the  week. The  only  thing  keeping  me sane is  my  blog   which  somehow  I have  managed  to bash  out every  day   and  keep up  with  all your  wonderful  posts. Please  forgive  me if  I only  click  a like , I  cannot  always  write  a  comment  because  my  typing   annoys  the hubby  so  sometimes  I  just  have  time  to read  and  like!

We  had  a lovely  day  out  on  Friday  with  friends  the  weather  and  company  were  warm  and  sunny   and  we had a wonderful  time  in Portsmouth .

If  we  were having  coffee : Yesterday   we had a  family  lunch  which  I  thought  was lovely   but  it  was obviously  not  what  it  seemed….. the husband  is  not  happy  about  it  today . There is  no point  me  going into  it  it  as I  am sure  you  all have families   and  can imagine  the  undercurrents and  emotions  that  run high in  every  family. I  am very  disappointed by  the  whole  situation  and  very  hurt by  some  of  the  things  the  hubby  has  said  today. Okay  they  maybe  true   but  we all have  to make  adjustments .  We  were  however  delighted   to  meat  our  eldest  son’s  new  young  lady   who is  delightful  and  the  couple  seem  to  suit  each other  well  and  I  can take  heart  in that. Also  the  Newbie  and his  Dad  were  present  for the  meal   and  the Newbie  was  well on  form  and  delighted  us  all.He  is  a  real  delight  and  soooooo  cute. He  has  a  good  appetite   and  ate  all his  dinner   and  some of  my  pudding   too.

So  why  am I  so  full  of  pain ………… why  do  things  look so  black.

If  we  were having  coffee : I am not  going  to  burden  you  with  the  progress  of  my  sister, or  my  friends  daughter   you  come here  for  a chat  and  drink  of  choice  and  some  lovely  cakes , to  relax  and  chat .

If  we  were having  coffee:   Sheri  from sheridgegrom- from the  literary and  legislative trenches  has  prepared chocolate chip scones from a new recipe for  our Sunday coffee and some of   Tom’s ( her  lovely  husband’s) favorite, chocolate creme pie.



Thank  you  so  much  Sheri  these  are  delicious  and  we  really  appreciate you  preparing  them   for  us! Do  visit  Sheri  at  her  blog it  is  well  worth  the visit!


If we were  having coffee: And  now  …DRUM ROLL…. It  is  time  for  the garden  round up …I know  yawn  yawn.

The weather turns on a sixpence.

The  garden  crops  are  looking  good  and  that  first  tomato  looks amazing , it is  amazing, though  I  think  I  waxed  rather over lyrical   when I  said  ‘Fresh with rain drops adorning it like diamonds’ poetic  licence  maybe! Well I need  something  to  be happy  about  !

Okay  well  that  is  about  all there is  time  for  this  week  so I  apologise  for being   down but  we can’t  all he  happy  with  perfect  lives? Can  we ??

If  we were having coffee : I would  ask  if  I  can fill up  your  cup, or  glass  or  get  you anything  else  to  eat  it is  all  calorie  free!

Let us  go  and Join Paul and the  gang  and  see  what  they are  all discussing  this  week! It has  been lovely  as always  to have  you all here  and  I  hope,  as does  Paul  that  you will all join us here again  next  week.

If We Were Having Coffee : Guest Post– August 23/201

What Do You Do with Custard and Cucumbers?

Welcome to Willow’s weekly coffee and tea garden. My name is Paul; I’ll be your barista today. I’m happy to see you have come for a cuppa and a chat. Please come into the garden and make yourself comfortable. Willow fluffed the cushions on the chairs and set the tables in the garden so we can have a cuppa and chat as we soak up the sun and enjoy the beautiful plants. As usual, I’d be pleased to bring a pot of whatever beverage you prefer – we have a wide range of teas and coffees to satisfy our world-wide readership. Also available is a large selection of spirits for addition to your cuppa or in its place. We can relax amongst the flowers while we discuss the affairs of the week both personal and/or worldwide. How has your week been?

First of all let me offer my deepest condolences to the friends and families of those killed or injured on the A-27 at West Sussex Saturday when a Fighter jet participating in the Shoreham Air Show crashed into the road way. This has just occurred as I write this Saturday afternoon so there is little news of the fate of the pilot or how the accident happened. I am sure the authorities will be diligent in their investigation.

So, speaking of airplanes, I was asked an interesting question today – one I thought I might share with you folks. One of my fellow tenants – Frank (name changed) – does some consulting work for a local airline. He seems rather well connected and is actually moving to Arizona in 2016, which is why he is staying in an apartment here in the student housing area of town – temporary accommodations. He and I have struck up a friendship and chat regularly. He has brought me a number of additions for my place, including a slow cooker and a shelving unit. He also helped me move and I gave him a silver flask set in return – not that he asked for anything. So Frank drops by this afternoon on his way to work at the airport and he has a question for me. He says that a major Canadian airline is moving its eastern operations to Ottawa and is looking for someone to write and edit a weekly company newsletter. It is a paid position and he wants to know if I am interested – as I have indicated to him that I would like to write for a living (I have the facial hair down pat now all I need is the job – Ha!). I indicated that I would be delighted to do so.

What do you think readers? I’ll keep you updated on how it goes – I have no clue if he has the connections to make it work but we shall see. Having never edited before, I may ask any of you out there who have edited to give me some tips on how it is done.

Would you like another cuppa? Perhaps a sweet? All our sweets are of the electronic variety and hence are calorie free – so fill up here.

Well, I dropped by the food bank this week – I would likely have been OK until my cheque but my neighbor was going and he asked me to come along, so I went. They were very nice and very generous and I got some very odd things. They rely on donations so they and I are very thankful for whatever is donated. I just have to figure out what to do with some of this stuff. Now, up front, I got some neat food that I would never buy – like bagged green salad (I would make my own but seldom do, so it is welcomed) that is very tasty and some bagels with jalapeño peppers baked in – quite hot but also tasty. There were also some staples, like hot dogs and crackers – all welcome.

And then there were the odd products. For instance I now have a 400 gram can of Devon custard which, it says on the can, is direct from Devon England. Could any of you kind readers explain to me what one does with this? I’ve never seen it before. I also have a can of pure pumpkin (nothing BUT pumpkin – guaranteed – it says so on the can). What do I do with that? I was thinking pumpkin pie – with the custard on top – but I don’t have an oven – just a hot plate and a slow cooker. Suggestions? Also forthcoming were three huge cucumbers, each as long and thick as my forearm. With them were three yellow squash that were about the same length but fatter around. Now I would like to hear suggestions on how to use them for future reference but this time I traded them to a fellow resident who is a wonderful retired professional cook. He makes soups and stews to die for, so I traded him the cukes and squash for some soup and stew.

I also got some single serving containers of Macaroni and Cheese. Now I have a problem with single serving portions. As I age, I eat less and so will buy single servings when the cost is affordable. But also as I age my eyesight deteriorates – even though I get it checked regularly, my ability to read smaller print is getting worse each year. Now the single serving containers are quite small and have a lot of info on them – ingredients, nutritional info (required here in Canada), cooking instructions, manufacturer info, product description and size, etc. To squeeze all this info on a package small enough to fit in the palm of my hand, they use a very fine print. I discovered today, when I went to eat the Macaroni that I can no longer read any of this printing. By holding the package under the light I was able to make out enough to figure out how to cook it (microwave without the metal lid but with the plastic ventilated lid provided). Are any of you readers in the same boat, and if so what do you use to fix this problem? Are there magnifying glasses for us folks? And if so, which are the best?



On that note, that’s about all we have room for this week, so it’s time to settle in with another cuppa and enjoy the garden. Sweets anyone? Please join me in thanking Willow for her invitation to tea. We are all honored that you dropped by today to visit. I hope you’ve enjoyed yourself and the conversation and please look around at Willow’s other posts while you’re here. Willow is over there serving her guests and chatting it up. Let’s go see how she is today. Have a great week. We look forward to seeing you back here for sweets and beverages of your choice again next week.

 And of course  the
