My neighbor’s sister just had liposuction performed on her thighs. She’s pissed about the scars, though, and may sue.
Eh? Tigerman? Stumped you on this one, eh?[/quote]
Yeah, I’m kinda stumped. The first lyrics that come to mind are from the Who’s Its a Legal Matter… and the Dead and The Who were tight. The Dead used The Who’s equipment when they played in Egypt. But, I don’t think the Dead ever played Its a Legal Matter.
The Dead did, however, frequently play Bob Dylan’s Ballad of a Thin Man, often with Dylan and twice without him. Bob Weir, rather than Dylan, sang this. I would tweak the title to this:
Ballad of a Thin Woman
And, I would quote the following lyrics [with the one tweak]:
[quote]You’ve been with the professors
And they all [dis]like your looks
With great lawyers you have
Discussed lepers and crooks[/quote]
This is not an attemp to stump you Tigerman, I just want to know if you are aware of etree.org. (I think that’s the name, I can check if you want to know) It’s a website where they trade recordings of various tape friendly bands. The Grateful Dead is very popular and people seem to have tons of recordings by them.
I am, thank you. I think twocs also cited that site. Unfortunately, I’m to stupid to figure out how to work that site… I think its the one with bittorrant or something like that. You seem to need to convert file types… and that’s just way over my head in terms of technical capability.

There, let’s see the Dead deal with that [/quote]
Then, with one little lyrical tweak [to change the gender of the subject]:
[quote=“Grateful Dead in Hell in a Bucket”]
Ahh [you] sweetie little soft-core pretender
Somehow baby got hard as it gets
With [his] black leather chrome spiked suspenders
And [his] chair and [his] whip and [his] pets
Well we know you’re the reincarnation
Of the ravenous Catherine the Great
And we know how you love your ovations
And the Z-rated scenes you create
And the Z-rated scenes you create[/quote]
[quote=“The Grateful Dead in Can’t Come Down”]
Well I’m flying down desert streets
Wrapped in mother’s winding sheets
Asbestos boots on flaming feet
Dreaming of forbidden treats
When uniforms on nighttime beats
Ask me where I’m going and what I eat[/quote]
[url=http://www.well.com/deadsongs/]A hallmark of the lyrics to Grateful Dead songs is their ability to reveal and conceal simultaneously. Every time you think you have a handle on what a song is about, what a song “means,” someone will come along who has heard it differently, who can offer a different perspective.
This conference will allow for discussion, questions, commentary, interpretive forays, etc., on a song-by-song basis. Alternate readings? Bring 'em on! Complex, well thought out interpretations? Great! Brief glimpses of revealed truth, off-the-wall theories, scholarly footnotes, whatever you think has some bearing on the song? Please share with other readers!
This is an experiment in group-mind lyrical awareness.[/url]
