Description
Alright, I admit, the chorus is totally stolen from Mr. Beck. I did not intend too, it just came to me, and there it was, and I couldn't think of anything else ever after. It became a tribute to his song. If anyone of you have a problem with this, knows Beck personally and can notify him of a certain little Swedish thief, please do so. I have never stolen anything, it's all about love and sharing to me. And hopefully always will remain that way. Peace.

Lyrics
The Old Thumper

I am sitting here with Betty Boop and a Joker.
We don't have much to say to one and each other.
When I ask: "How you doin'?" They all stair at me like am a fool.
Maybe I'm not a stoner, but I'm also something?
I have to the right to get a boner when I want to!
Yeah, right Bebe, just look away from me, I know you want me.
A handful of peanuts, and a few Steel Reserve, is that all I am worth?

???

I think I've served, long enough to own this whole damn world!

This whole damn world!

Soy un perdedor….
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me (too)?

I am sitting here, and it's about 5:15 on Friday afternoon,
looking at an old and wasted Old Thumper, it look back at me with its evil eyes
I soon start jumping, cause I need a God damn brake from all and everybody,
and their brothers and their snakes
Give me a break in this system, perhaps a door, a green light and a "GO"!
Show me direction, a sign, something I'd know…
Tag my name on a train car, fly me a balloon,
be creative, show me soon…

Soy un perdedor...
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me (too)?

They're moaning.

Soy un perdedor...
I’m a loser baby, so why don’t you kill me (too)?

Man, did somebody tell you you are an original? Your voice is so confident. Great sound bed in the backing. This sounds great.
Is good you made the Beck reference. I wouldn't notice it ;-)
Can I ask whom is the female voice? She's like a bright yellow appearing here and there.
Funny ending :-D

Wow!
For someone who revels in constantly pushing the envelope and doing something different, you've totally gone off the hook with this one. This one blew me away from the very opening. And as for lifting the Beck hook, just remember the old saying "Good composers borrow, great composers steal."

Very cool, Mikki. Really got me going on a Sunday morning.

Beck would love it and only wishes he
had your range and wild imagination. OK - so he's pretty good too - gotta admit - but lately you're up in your game and I'm not so sure about him. What a great track this is. Hot stuff.
