I was singing when I made breakfast this morning.
It’s not that I was in an exceptionally chipper mood. Instead, two recent events brought a song forward from the inner recesses of my brain.
- The cupboards were bare, and toast was my only option.
- My friend Joan mentioned on Facebook that she saw a very funny comedian at a recent stand-up show in Lexington, KY.
If you haven’t heard or seen Heywood Banks, well, ya need to. And a lazy Sunday morning is the perfect time to tool around his website and check out “Yeah, Toast!” and some of his other classic comedy songs, including “Eighteen Wheels on a Big Rig” and “The Cat Got Dead.”
I even discovered a brand new gem when I was clicking around this morning called “Taser Her Again” based on a true story. It’s no wonder the man has won songwriting awards.
And with his Uncle Sam coif, he deserves a few style awards, too.
When the first cave man drove in from the dregs
Didn’t know what would go with the bacon and the eggs
Must’ve been a genius got it in his head
Plug the toaster in the wall buy a bag of bread make toast….
