Anthro 101: Kantos Populares De Los Krakeros

[ #22671 ]
Dear Log,

I hereby reproduce, for your edification, the lyrics to the two songs I heard while in a cab today.

Blue County - "That's Cool"

Shootin' dr. Pepper cans with your brand new red ryder
That old folding lawn chair makes the perfect x-wing fighter
Those no-name baseball cards spinning in your spokes
Now that's cool

Turnin' 17 and daddy loosens up the curfew
Drivin' home at midnight that old buick smells like perfume
Making your own money, having coffee with your folks
Now that's cool

(Chorus:)
Knowin' where you're goin', embracin' where you've been
Being criticized for standin' strong in a battle you can't win
Livin' in a moment you may never see again
Let your heart break some rules
Now that's cool

Wakin' up with your new bride a room beside the ocean
10 years later goin' back to relive that emotion
She tells you what she's thinking but never says a word
Now that's cool

(Chorus)

The pitcher is your six year old, you're his full time catcher
He gets a new bb gun and 'you'll put your eye out' lecture
Your 3 year old is singin' the song that she just learned
Now that's cool

(Chorus)

~~

Williams Hank Jr, "I'm One of You"

They say it takes more now
To do what our mom and daddies did
They made it look so easy
Working hard and raising kids
If you get in trouble at school
You got in trouble at home
You can't outrun momma's wooden spoon
Or the principle's telephone
Raise your hand if you only had
Three channels on TV
And that little town
That kept you down
Is where you wanna be

Yeah I'm one of you
Yeah I'm one of you
No you're not by yourself
There's somebody else
Who's been there too
If you still wish you still had
Some growing up to do
You're one of me
And I'm one of you

Tell the truth
Do you still wonder
How fast your car will go
When Sweet Home Alabama
Comes on the radio
I bet Jesus, and your momma
Now they're way up there
On your mind
Anytime you take a sip
Or you walk across the line
If you understand why your old man
Said the whole world's gone to hell
But you still believe the American Dream
Is alive and well

I'm one of you
Yeah I'm one of you
No your not by yourself
There's somebody here
Who's been there too
I know what ya thinking
What ya drink
And I know why you do
Your one of me
Yeah and I'm one of you

Do you feel a little bit
Out of touch
Or politically incorrect
Then you and me both agree
What did you expect

I'm one of you
Yeah I'm one of you
No, No you're not by yourself
There's somebody else
Who's been there too
I know what you think
About the good ol'
Red, White, and Blue
You're one of me
And I'm one of you
You're one of me
And I'm one of you
