Socks'n Sandals (aint Rock`n Roll)


   Den gamle rockeren Graham Parker har gjort mye rart opp gjennom tida, men han har hatt sine stunder, og en av de bedre er i mine øyne og ører klassikeren Socks`n Sandals. Denne teksta er akkuratt som om jeg skulle ha gjort det sjøl, og den godeste GP er derfor god å ha som inspirasjonskilde i rim og smårare påfunn. !! Denne har i tillegg en lettliva melodi.
Hver gang jeg ser en kar i sokker og sandaler tenker jeg på denne sangen, og det er helt riktig som GP sier, sokker og sandaler er ikke rock`n roll.



Tekst: Graham Parker, - Fillerista av; Olem-- . desember 2007.


   I DUNNO WHY YOU LOVE ME BABY
I DUNNO WHY YOU CARE
I'M LOSIN'MY MEMORY

I'M LIVIN' IN THE SUBURBS
AND WEARIN' BAD CLOTHES
BAR-BECUING HOT DOGS
