I *heart* Bombay (and well..Boston)

I'm urban..in the way other people are mountain-people or tunafish junkies. I love city life...something about dreary concrete blocks and grumpy people totally gets my juices flowing. Ergo, this will be a blog about me, my two favourite cities (Bombay and Boston), my addiction to Vietnamese coffee and my views on Gregorian chant and it's efficacy in curing some types of tympannic membrane rupture. Enjoy!

Rufus knows how it is.

People will know when they see this show,
The kind of guy I am.
They'll recognize just what I stand for,
And what I just can't stand.
They'll perceive what I believe in,
and what I know is true.
They'll recognize I'm a one-man guy,
Always was, through & through.

People meditate, hey that's just great,
Trying to find the inner you.
People depend on family and friends,
And other folks to pull them through.
I don't know why I'm a one-man guy,
Or why I'm a one-man show.
But these three cubic feet of bone and blood and meat
Are all I love and know.

Cause I'm a one-man guy in the morning
Same in the afternoon.
One-man guy when the sun goes down,
I whistle me a one-man tune.
One-man guy, one-man guy,
Only kinda guy to be
I'm a one-man guy, I'm a one-man guy
And the one-man guy, is me.

I'm gonna bathe and shave and dress myself,
And eat solo every night.
Unplug the phone, sleep alone,
Stay way out of sight.
Sure it's kinda lonely,
Yeah it's sort of sick.
Being your own one and only
Is a dirty selfish trick.

Cause I'm a one-man guy in the morning
Same in the afternoon.
One-man guy when the sun goes down,
I whistle me a one-man tune.
One-man guy, one-man guy,
Only kinda guy to be
I'm a one-man guy, I'm a one-man guy
And the one-man guy, is me.

    Oh, very nice. This is one of my favourite songs by Rufus, and the whole family connection always struck me as slightly ironic and appropriate - his dad wrote the song, his sister sings with him on it...

    God bless harmonics.
