Donttreadonme Is Back! - Pass the Barf Bag



















A recent post ontheborderspinline.nut took a walk down memory lane extolling the profundity of lyrics penned by some obscure group of "musicians" calling themselves Rush, and singing the praises of this anthem which led the borderwhiners on to the Olympian heights of their " stout achievements". (I can only guess this refers to their careers as Spouse Potatoes.)

After reflecting on the genius of what our old "friend" Donttreadonme chose to share with the world, I couldn't help but recall a tune from my teen-age nostalgia bank that seemed to describe donttreadonme so well.

Fool On The Hill - Beatles

Fool On The Hill
(The Beatles)

Day after day, alone on the hill,
The man with the foolish grin is keeping perfectly still.
But nobody wants to know him,
They can see that he's just a fool.
And he never gives an answer .....

But the fool on the hill,
Sees the sun going down.
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning around.

Well on his way, his head in a cloud,
The man of a thousand voices, talking perfectly loud.
But nobody ever hears him,
Or the sound he appears to make.
And he never seems to notice .....

But the fool on the hill,
Sees the sun going down.
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning around.

And nobody seems to like him,
They can tell what he wants to do.
And he never shows his feelings,

But the fool on the hill,
Sees the sun going down.
And the eyes in his head,
See the world spinning around.

You guys should stop picking on "The Flash"...Hmmmm I mean... Dr. No-Tread Bill. He's a genius you know. He told me so himself!

My favorite song about Dr. Bill would be: Nowhere Man

He's a real nowhere Man,
Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
Making all his nowhere plans
for nobody.

Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere Man, please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command.


He's as blind as he can be,
Just sees what he wants to see,
Nowhere Man can you see me at all?
Nowhere Man, don't worry,
Take your time, don't hurry,
Leave it all till somebody else
lends you a hand.

Doesn't have a point of view,
Knows not where he's going to,
Isn't he a bit like you and me?

Nowhere Man, please listen,
You don't know what you're missing,
Nowhere Man, the world is at your command.

He's a real Nowhere Man,
Sitting in his Nowhere Land,
Making all his nowhere plans
for nobody.
Making all his nowhere plans
for nobody.
Making all his nowhere plans
for nobody.
