Bat out of hell, bite me world!

January 29, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was in a bit of a nostalgic mood this afternoon, so I put “Bat Out of Hell” on and cranked it up.  Man, what perfect timing!  Global Warming, extremest Muslim terrorists, liberals, Jane Fonda, Britney’s beaver, Big Brother racism, Hillary Clinton, the United Nations, President Bush, AlGore, Iraq, Iran, nuclear bombs, blood in the streets, and the end of the world; screw it all!  So, take a few minutes, put the CD on, crank it up and sing along!

Bat Out Of Hell lyrics

The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling

Way down in the valley tonight
There’s a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright
There’s evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky
And a killer’s on the bloodshot streets
And down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy
Down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heat
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world
that’s pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light
But i gotta get out
I gotta break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it’s over you know
We’ll both be so alone
Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes
When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you
I’m gonna hit the highway like a battering ram

On a silver black phantom bike

When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry

And we’re all about to see the light

Nothing ever grows in this rotten old hole

Everything is stunted and lost

And nothing really rocks

And nothing really rolls

And nothing’s ever worth the cost

And I know that I’m damned if I never get out

And maybe I’m damned if I do

But with every other beat I got left in my heart

You know I’d rather be damned with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

If Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night with you
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world

     that’s pure and good and right

And wherever you are and wherever you go

There’s always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out

I gotta break it out now

Before the final crack of dawn

So we gotta make the most of our one night together

When it’s over you know

We’ll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell

I’ll be gone when the morning comes

When the night is over

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done

And the sun goes down

And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

I can see myself tearing up the road

Faster than any other boy has ever gone

And my skin is raw but my soul is ripe

And no one’s gonna stop me now

I gotta make my escape

But I can’t stop thinking of you

And I never see the sudden curve until it’s way too late

I never see the sudden curve till it’s way too late

Then I’m dying on the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere is tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Breaking out of my body

And flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Then I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Still beating

Breaking out of my body and flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Thanks Jim; thanks Meat!  Still love it; still a fan.

End of world preparations continue some more.

January 21, 2007

Hi Brit,

My usually unreliable source had this waiting for me this morning,

James Brown’s body moved, no word where.  Obviously, if you’re taking Elvis to the secret moon base, why leave James Brown behind.  It’s starting to look like the end of the world may be a real party.”

Rock on James!

Michael Jackson comeback

December 31, 2006

Well Grit

If you are really concerned about the “gloved one’s” return, it may be best to stay away from Vegasjackson.JPG for a while. It appears that Jackson, who is only $100 million in debt, is set to make a dramatic return to the limelight in a show on the famous strip.

I guess his debts, along with his skin pigmentation, will pale into insignificance compared with the fee he will be commanding. As for the UK news comparing him with James Brown, in my view there is no comparison.

Well here is one brit who will give the show a miss.

The Gloved One Returns!

December 31, 2006

Hi Brit,

Just when you thought it was safe to watch the news, Michael Jackson rears his amazing head.

  Michael Jackson praises James Brown as inspiration

What a hideous thing to do to a dead man.  The moon-walking freak should be glad I’m not related to James Brown, because I’d unleash a pack of lawyers on his scrawny behind for defamation of character.

More signs and portents

December 25, 2006

Hi Brit and merry Christmas,

I hate to mention this on Christmas, but the end of the world is coming.  The signs are too strong today to ignore.  Consider the following:

NORM: Michael Jackson landing on Strip?

In this sad story, we learn that The Gloved One is planning a comeback appearance in Las Vegas.

Katie Rees, the recently de-crowned beauty queen, is from Nevada, the state in which Las Vegas is located.

At the same time, Britney Spears, also known for exposing herself in public,  is planning a comeback show, in, you guessed it, Las Vegas!  Britney Spears Comeback Show in Las Vegas?

Combine this with the death of James Brown, known as the Godfather of soul, and the obvious connection to organized crime which that title implies, and it’s easy to see the link to Las Vegas, since the crime families built the town into what it is today.

So, the end of the world is coming, and it looks like it’s heading for Las Vegas.

Happy New Year,

the Grit
