Courtesy is how we got civilized. The blind assertion of rights is what threatens to decivilize us. Everybody's got lots of rights that are set out legally. Responsibilities are not enumerated, for good reason, but they are set into the social fabric. Is it such a sacrifice to not be an asshole?

However, this is a lyric thread - which means you take any word in the above lyrics by Dennis Leary...and find another song which ALSO contains that word. Then you post your song, and the next person will follow suit. And so on....get it?

silkmuse - As *we have claimed many times here (and will continue to do so) there is only one rule, and that is "we don't need no stinkin rules".

snoot - I'm only an 'asshole' to those I *know or to those that have the same *values. Some people, on the other hand, give being an asshole a bad name.

NOTE: This is not a food thread!
By no stretch [wretch? retch?] of the imagination can liver be considered a "food".

I hate liver,
Liver makes me quiver,
Liver makes me curl right up and die
(Makes me cry)
It gives you hives,
Gives you scurvy,
Turns my stomach topsy turvy,
Liver just simply ain't my bag,
(Makes me gag)
[aside] Now liver is neither solid or liquid, but merely an amorphous, viscous colloid of putrid protein...located just south of the diaphragm, lounging like a whore on a pillow of fat. Is it any coincidence that there are 5 letters in the word liver? The same number of letters as in the word death? the word drugs?


I Hate Liver -- performed at Chicago's Second City theater in the 1970's, and frequently played on a weekly radio show here, but never released commercially.

Ahh, Silk! My rebel g/f! Here's one for you.


And the sign said long-haired freaky people need not apply
So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why
He said, "You look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you'll do"
So I took off my hat, I said, "Imagine that, huh, me working for you!"

Chorus:
Oh, a sign, a sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign

And the sign said anybody caught trespassing will be shot on sight
So I jumped on the fence and I yelled at the house, "Hey, what gives you the right
To put up a fence to keep me out or to keep Mother Nature in
If God was here he'd tell it to your face, man you're some kind of sinner"

Whoa, signs, signs, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign

Now, hey you mister can't you read
You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat
You can't even watch, no, you can't eat
You ain't supposed to be here

And the sign says you got to have a membership card to get inside, huh
*Solo* (chorus)
And the sign said everybody welcome come in, and kneel down and pray
But they passed around a plate, and at the end of it all I didn't have a penny to pay
So I got me a pen and paper, and I made up my own little sign
I said thank you, Lord, for thinkin' 'bout me, I'm alive and doin' fine

Whoa, sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign
Whoa, sign, sign, everywhere a sign
(chorus)

Sign, sign
(chorus)

"Signs"
Five Man Electrical Band
from "Absolutely Right"

Edit...OK, Keiva, you snuck in there! This ties to Silk's song!

(linking to angel's).

I'm a dacint boy, just landed from the town of Ballyfad;
I want a situation: yis, I want it mighty bad.
I saw a place advartised. It's the thing for me, says I;
But the dirty spalpeen ended with: No Irish need apply.
...
Sure, I've heard that in America it always is the plan
That an Irishman is just as good as any other man;
A home and hospitality they never will deny
The stranger here, or ever say: No Irish need apply.
But some black sheep are in the flock: a dirty lot, say I;
A dacint man will never write: No Irish need apply!


John Poole (1862 or 1863). Appears to have been inspired by an song, shortly earlier, by Kathleen O'Neil:

I'm a simple Irish girl, and I'm looking for a place,
I've felt the grip of poverty, but sure that's no disgrace,
'Twill be long before I get one, tho' indeed it's hard I try,
For I read in each advertisement, "No Irish need apply."
...
Now I wonder what's the reason that the fortune-favored few,
Should throw on us that dirty slur, and treat us as they do,
Sure they all know Paddy's heart is warm, and willing is his hand,
They rule us, yet we may not earn a living in their land,
....
Ah! but now I'm in the land of the "Glorious and Free,"
And proud I am to own it, a country dear to me,
I can see by your kind faces, that you will not deny,
A place in your hearts for Kathleen, where "All Irish may apply."
Then long may the Union flourish, and ever may it be,
A pattern to the world, and the "Home of Liberty!"

Ladies and gentlemen...
The MAN SONG...

(he's the man, he's the man)

I don't take no crap from anyobody else...
but you...
I wear the pants around here...
when I'm finished with your laundry...
Cause I'm a guy you don't wanna fight,
When I say "jump" you say...

Yeah, right.
I'm the man of this house...
until you get home...

(he's the man, he's the man)

What I say goes around here...
right out the window...
And I don't wanna hear a lot of whining...
so I'll shut up...
The sooner you'll learn who's boss around here, the sooner...
you can give me my orders dear...
Cause I'm head-honcho around here...
but it's all in my head...

(he's the man, he's the man)

And I can have sex anytime...
that you want...
Cause I'm a man who has needs...
but they’re not that important...
But don't expect any flowers from me,
Cause if I'm not mistaken...

you prefer jewelry...
I'm the king of my castle...
when you're not around...

(he's the man, he's the man)

And I'll drink and watch sports whenever I wanna...
get in trouble...
And I'll come home when I'm good and ready...
to sleep on the couch...
Cause a man gotta do what a man gotta do,
And I'm gonna do...

what you tell me to...
Because I'm top dog around here...
but I've been neutered...

(he's the man, he's the man, you’re the man)

Edit: This is called "The Man Song"
It is performed (not sung) by Sean Morey
If you have not heard this, let me explain: the words are spoken, in rhythm, to background music. The bold is spoken at a normal voice, and the non-bold is almost spoken under his breath. There is a very annoying laugh track with it, and a couple of girls who say "(he's the man, he's the man)". Very funny song though!

http://www.menjokes.com/mansong.html There is a link on this page to hear the song. It doesn't work on my computer, but maybe it will on yours if you are interested.
