I was entertained by these Lyrics to Live By in the latest issue of Men's Health. What? I do too read the articles! They are very informative about, ah, men and their health and stuff. Oh, and there are all sorts of pictures of hot guys with washboard abs and tight tushies. Snicker, snicker.

"Sometimes you're the windshield; sometimes you're the bug."
Dire Straits, "The Bug"
This is just pure poetry.

"Savor the throne, but don't mind the stool."
Steve Winwood, "Take It As It Comes"

"When the grass is cut, the snakes will show."
Jay-Z, "Blueprint 2"
Which grass do you think he's referring to?

"Free your mind and your ass will follow."
Funkadelic, "Good Thoughts, Bad Thoughts"
What the hell does this mean? What were they smokin' to come up with that?

"You can't change a turd into gold."
Ramones, "Eat that Rat"
Hmm, very reminiscent of my husband's, "If it looks like a pig, call it a pig."

"An honest man's pillow is his peace of mind."
John Mellencamp, "Minutes to Memories"
So true! Sing it, Cougar.

"Bury the hatchet, but leave the handle stickin' out."
Garth Brooks, We Bury the Hatchet"
Not really a country music fan, but I can totally relate to this lyric.

"The ones that you're calling wild are going to be the leaders in a little while."
Johnny Cash, "What is Truth"
Could you scare me a little more, Johnny? I think not.

"It's hard to remember we're alive for the last time."
Modest Mouse, "Lives"
This is something that the gang from That 70s Show would have sat around the table discussing after smoking some weed.
Fez: Who you calling "alive"? Who has some candy?
Michael: Wow, so we were alive before? Heh, heh.
Steven: Smacks Michael.
Jackie: Michael! Would you have loved me even more if you knew this was the last time we were going to be alive? I know you would have. Donna, probably no one ever loved you in another life as much as Michael loves me in this one.
Donna to Jackie: Did you just say something? Your mouth was moving but I was so distracted by that one curly chin hair you have I didn't hear a word you said.

"Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
John Lennon, "Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)"
