The Lyrics

Well, this is the 10th and final installment of my Parody Project, "CSN, The Thumb Album". Hope you've all enjoyed reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. I just got through playing the complete album and singing these songs along with it. I had a lot of fun doing that, too. The order I posted these in differs from the Playing Track order on the Album since the "muse" spoke to me as "muses" tend to; that is to say, when they feel like it.
(Instrumental Intro)

I've been a long time thumbin'
I may be quite a long time more
Cause I can't seem to get a lift
Can't seem to get a lift
I'm getting pretty miffed
Yes, yes I feel I'm getting stiffed
by these morons

(Instrumental break)

Stood, stood near the corner
Next, yes, right next to the magazine stand
Can't figure why I can't get a ride out of here
Could it be the porno magazines I have in my hand? (Nah....)
'Cause I have been here way too long (Yes, I have)
I've been here way too long (hmmm...)
By now I should be long, gone
Yes, by now I think I should
Yes, been long gone

(Instrumental break)

I doubt, I'm starting to doubt I'll get a ride here
I really am in doubt
yes, I am
I don't know what to do to get myself selected
There's got to be some way to get out of here (No...)
'Cause I've been stuck here way too long (yes, I have)
Been stuck here way too long (hmmm...)
I'm weary of this song
Yes, growing really weary now
So where's that bong?

That bong hit's got me mumbling'(uhhhh...mumbling)
That dope I toked was really strong (uhhhh....strong)

And you know, a few more hours
Won't be that big a deal now that I'm so stoned (uuuhhhhh...)
'Cause with a big toke on my bong...
Frustration's suddenly gone
What was I sayin', son? Ohhh....
No, actually don't mind standin' here,
It's kinda fun....

Thanks, Alvin! Appreciate the 'bon mots' for my Project. Jeez, this number was "out on the corner' for a while today before anyone gave it a lift. Good thing it had those magazines and the bong, huh? Your "Grave" parody this morning was fantastic, a masterpiece. Right after the Tate-LaBiana murders here in L.A. you suddenly couldn't buy a ride (hmmm...wonder why?) and if you did get one the vibes quickly got so weird you sometimes wanted to jump out while the care was still moving. In fact the last time I hitch-hiked back then the driver and I were both apparently equally antsy about one another. He suddenly pulled to the shoulder of the FREEWAY, stops and says, "Well, Have A Nice Day" and gestures to the door". Actually, I was happy to leave, it was such a weird vibe...we were both scared shitless of each other for probably no reason at all. The time before that me and a friend stood about 4 hours at the San Diego North Freeway on-ramp on Slauson Blvd., in the L.A. area with no go. Finally a guy picks us up and around Sunset Blvd. heading North on the 405 runs over an object on the freeway that punctured his gas tank! Wow! talk about omens and signs! Realized it was time to get my 1962 Ford Falcon fixed and back on the road again.

Johnny D - Thanks, but can I get a lift? This bong and these porno magazines are getting mighty heavy right about now.

Found the album, Paul, new, remastered, 14.99, Best Buy. You still did a good job, now you get 5's for it.

Adagio, Good price! Remastered and all, cool! Now you get to check out the whole Album, when you're in the mood. It's a good one. Think I'll check for a Best Buy around here, maybe they have the same price. Going out to my Dad's in a little bit, MY 54th birthday is around the corner (April 1st) so we're doing a little lightweight celebrating tonight. Thanks for the 5's and your encouragement with my Project.
