    Dirty Water Dog



    No candidate would I support
    His platform could I endorse
    Another accomplice slinging dirt
    Campaign promises falling short
    I don't belong to any race
    Pledge allegiance to a place
    No borderline in the sand I'd trace
    I'm just a sucker for a pretty face

    Uncomfortable in the realm of the political
    Position's always been a little left of cynical
    I'm fundamentally for the individual
    Preoccupied purely with the physical

    When heavy is the weight of the world
    And the river runs a little too deep
    Like a hound dog chasing a bird
    Sometimes a certain tom's gotta peep
    I'm a peek-a-boy, looking at girls
    And I think I like, I think I like, I like what I see

    I don't wanna find religion
    Or another man's opinion
    I Can't choose what's not my decision
    When there's only one under the sun
    There's no need to be denied
    Chew before swallowing pride
    I want to live so let me die
    Oh by the way, what's your sign?

    Can't comprehend the meaning of the metaphysical
    I'd rather leave that to your so-called intellectual
    But what I do know I know feels only natural
    I'm just a red-blooded heterosexual

    When heavy is the weight of the world
    And the river runs a little too deep
    Like a dirty water doggin' a bird
    Sometimes a certain tom's he gotta peep
    I'm a peek-a-boy, looking at girls
    And I think I like, I think I like, I like what I see

    Whenever I hear a song from Van Halen III, especially after I have listened to any Van Halen song from 1978-1995, I am incredulous.

    I think the intro is cool. That's the thing about III; there were pieces of brilliance scattered all around it. But nothing really cohesive, save for Josephina, which I happen to dig.

    I don't mind the song, or any song from III really. I'm just a fan of music though. I did however, long for older rockin' VH songs when I heard it. If the songs on III would have all been like "Fire In The Hole", or "Ballot or the Bullet", I would have liked it better. "How Many Say I" is about the only song that I can't make myself sit through. That one was just bad.

    Sounds like a demo.

    Like a lot of III, there are snippets of possibilities, but it just sounds like a mess.

    And, they should find the guy that mixed it and break his knee caps. I could mix it better on my PC.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    This and One I want are the only I like. I love the outro. His sound is cool on this one.

    I agree.

    This tune is actually really good.
    I like that intro, and the chords he hits with that clean tone.
    I like how parts of it sound slightly off-beat or in odd timing.

    This & One i want, are better than anything on Balance, imo.

    Yeah, it's a little off pace for him. I liked how it was different. I like his clean sound, too. I woulda liked it as an instrumental. Like a Ripley sorta thing.

    Definitely would have been great as an instrumental.

    For the past three years, I have attended a silent meditation retreat for a month in Colorado. Each retreatant is given a daily job to do. This work activity is referred to as "rota."

    I'm not sure if that's an acronym for something or what.

    Ok, I just looked it up, and it says

    Rota -- a rotation of persons undertaking some duty or form of work; a list of such persons.

    Anyway, one of these rota activities is washing windows, bathrooms, etc. After the work, the supplies are put back, and any dirty rags are put into a bucket that is labeled:

    DIRTY ROTA RAGS

    Every damn time I see this bucket, I get the song in my head, and my next meditation sit is dominated by Gary Cherone's voice.
