There's no explaining this one

I woke up this morning with the Irish Rovers' Unicorn song in my head.

What's worse, I really don't know the words.

So I was singing "The humpty back tigers and the Smithereens, some cats and bats and ratatats, but hmm hmm hmm hmm, hmm hmm hmm hmm THE UNICORN."

At the risk of implanting this song into your gourd, here's my "Purge The Unicorn" song list from iTunes:

Bloody Mary Morning - Willie Nelson
I Think Ill Just Stay Here and Drink - Merle Haggard
Uneasy Rider - Charlie Daniels Band
A Few More Rednecks - Charlie Daniels Band
Mamas Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Cowboys - Ed Bruce
East Bound and Down - Jerry Reed
Y'All Come Back Saloon - Oakridge Boys
King of the Road - Roger Miller
It Was Almost Like a Song - Ronnie Milsap
Sixteen Tons - Tennessee Ernie Ford
Good Hearted Woman - Waylon & Willie
Ghost Riders in the Sky - Johnny Cash & Willie Nelson
Beer for My Horses - Willie Nelson
I am listening to: UNICORN
I am reading: Neil at the Sun-Times
And I am: Happy

I am seeing a theme here you head into the weekend, I hope you have time to throw a few back.

In case you'd like to sing along...

(I just HAD to look up the lyrics)

....some green alligators and long-necked geese
Some humpty backed camels and some chimpanzees
Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
Don't you forget My unicorns

Thanks, Judy! I can stop singing humpty back tigers (?) now, as if that makes any sense at all. :)

What have you done! I'm alternating humpty back camels and deeper in debt!

When a song gets stuck in my head I always go to - "Copa Cabana" it is a sure bet to knock any song out of your head.
Hey, let's go and take the
G-string off of Jim's Les Paul!
