The Lyrics

What's in a name? Sometimes plenty...so be careful what you name your kids.
[instrumental intro]

It was wrong
Real wrong it was clear
Name that they gave you
Made you so weird, dude
It's stank, it was the worst kind of name

Like an urchin
You drift; you stumble
Been put down all your life, so
wary, no friends, no
Your name is no good
that's bullsh*t, man

So you say, "This really sucks"
Your odd name makes you want to give up

Your folks named you "Daffy"
That really is sad
That was really sappy
Just what was wrong with Mom and Dad?

Like a hound
get dogged around
Way to pissed-off to explain
parents were insane
You said all of this sh*t before

Now you frown
Clown laughed at your name
Stinking comments get said
When you're told you see red
Disturbed; there they go again
Feel the pain, you feel alone
It's so unkind, you hurt to the bone

It makes you unhappy
Yeah, that is a fact
Sad your name is "Daffy"
Your anger swells and you react

Now you feel real crappy
Your life's out of whack
Sense of worth; you're lacking
Don't feel too well; about to crack

[during instrumental break]

{You're about to crack}
{Yeah, that is a fact}
{Tired of this crap}
{And now some assh*le quacks}

["quacking" sounds up to next set of lyrics]

People snark
Rude remarks you hear
One thing they should know
You may go psycho
But no one cares, or so it seems
Well, someday; may not be long
You're so uptight, you want them all gone

You are close to snapping
You can't get no slack
Thinking of attacking
And now you're dwelling on that fact

Tired of the laughing
The deck has been stacked
Now some assh*le's quacking
Too bad for him that you now pack

[gunshot sound]

[Instrumentals out to fade]

Very good Paul. Which Daffy are you singing about though? Its not Daffy Duck by any chance is it? Good parody all the same. 555

Daffy Abernathy. The last name makes is sound pretty decent. 555

Jason - I was thinking about Daffy Duck, yes...that's where the "quacking" references come from. AFW - Thanks! alvin..."daffy rhodes"? Any relation to "Dusty Rhodes", of NY Giant, 1954 World Series fame (several decisive Pinch-Hits, including a Home Run...3-run, I think)...or maybe the L.A. lady DJ...wonder if she is still around and on the air anywhere? Yoidy, "Daffy Abernathy"...actually, it doesn't sound that bad...Thanks!

I'm glad to hear from you again, Paul. Excellent pacing...there's nothing like the real OS to hear the pacing..: ), difficult as it was. 5's

My nephews Foghorn, Wile E, and Tweety would love this! 555

Pat, thanks! Yeah, a lot of Sheryl Crow's songs are very quirky in both pacing and lyrics...which I find kind of fun to work with...Kristof - at least none of them are named "Goofy"...at least I hope ~ ~ ~

ah what's in a name...would he who we call Daffy by any other name still be a geek?

you make some very good points here, Paul - 555

Thanks, Stuart...I guess it's an issue we just shouldn't duck...(groan)
