If Shel Silverstein wrote that - and it's certainly his style - it was Dr. Hook that recorded it. Funny song. Hard to believe it came from the same group that gave us Sylvia's Mother. *retch*

Yeah, the lyrics definitely have a The Cover Of The Rolling Stone flow to them.

And I'd forgotten all about Sylvia's Mother - I deleted that one from my .m3u of that album a loooooong time ago.

Well, I didn't know that Dr.Hook had
covered "Freakers' Ball", but; looking at the album right in front of me ("Freakin' At The Frteakers' Ball" by Shel Silverstein), UI', omly reminded that Dr. Hook had a great song called "Couple More Years". It was the B-side of "Love You A Little Bit More."

I should've known that Spork. Mookie is a huge Shel Silverstein fan. I got to see Dr. Hook in concert once, and they were better than a lot of folks gave them credit for. They rocked hard.
