"Bill Lee" as written by and Warren Zevon....
You're sposed to sit on you ass and nod at stupid things
Man that's hard to do
But if you don't they'll screw you
And if you do they'll screw you too
And I'm standing in the middle of the diamond all alone
I always play to win when it comes to skin and bone

And some times I say things I shouldn't like

And some times I say things I shouldn't like

    General CommentRead this about Bill Lee and the song explains itself. Great song, way too short, but still one of my many WZ faves.

    General CommentIn a David Letterman interview, Warren Zevon mentioned something about taking over Bob Dylan's job
    And David Letterman said, "What job is that?" and Warren said, "Being the voice of my generation."
    The audience laughed, and he had intended it, it seemed, as a joke, but it's hauntingly true as well
    His music may not win the popularity contest, but it wins the accuracy contest 100%
    Nobody is better as putting into words the thought-process of the late-20th-early-21st century American male.
