The Lyrics

Yes, I know. You DKTOS. Please accept my assurance that the pacing is pretty darn close to perfect, and go check out the original. It's really pretty.
Today, I think I'll do what I've not tried before
Today, I may just get a tattoo, or go hunting for boar
I could put on my shoes and take a walk to Peru
Or set off to sea as a cabin girl for a pirate crew

Today, I'd like to shock my Ma, just for some laughs
Today, I'll break a decency law with helpful giraffes
To be drinking beer behind the wheel would not be bright
To go walking nude through a biker bar could start a fight

Today, I could have them streak my hair in green, pink and blue
Today, I'd like to meet some guy in a public loo
I could rope a steer, I could dive for pearls, I could flash the Pope
I could lead a cheer, or read the Word, or just smoke some dope

Sing! Dance! Take off my pants!
Invite all the neighbors to play
I could start today
Start today...

Ravyn, yah silly! Of course I know this great old 'Airplane' song. And I really like what you did with it. Great job! 5's. Glad to see someone go back to this eerie era for material. Do some more!

Gosh, I wrote a big, long note of praise...and then mentioned the "Great Vote Tabulation Crash of 07/28/04...and the next thing I know my note is GONE! But it was not some sort of dumb fingers slipped and I hit some key that tossed my words off into the ether...Anyway, this was great...hope some other folks see my note and come over and check it out ~ ~ ~
