"The Olde HeadBoard" as written by and Melora "rasputina" Creager....
What becomes a legend most?
I'll let you think about it,
Space ghost coast-to-coast.
While I give thanks today
For all the things I stole
And all the things I gave away
You make experiment, you try to
Teach a lesson and then take a stand
A fake handshake don't make no man

I don't know, about a year ago or so
I must have made you up in my head
What did I base you on?
Was it a broadway show I saw?
A hot new book I read?
Half-baked you come at me
You know I told you not to call here no more.
The new best friend, the olde headboard.

Yo no comprendo, mi amour
Oh no, yo no comprendo.
The new best friend, the olde headboard

Where'd you get the dumb idea
For all the secretive platonic dating?
I have experience
In the love and the lives
Of man and machines

Yo no comprendo, mi amour
Oh no, yo no comprendo.
The new best friend, the olde headboard

What becomes a legend most?
The love and lives of man and machine
Olde headboard

The love and lives of man and machine
Olde headboard

    General CommentActually, Melora said she wrote this song about a relationship. She doesn't usually write about relationships, because that's what everyone else does.

    General CommentI dig the Space Ghost quote, why, he's my favorite cartoon talk show host! I don't really get where it fits in, though, must be an in-joke reference thing or something.
