I kept waiting for that "This season as Smith's songs" post to jinx us. Yes, I'm referring to that Smith's classic, "Big Mouth Strikes Again." Could one be off-base suggesting these lyrics refer to Danny Hope:
"Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking
When I said I'd like to smash every tooth
In your head
Oh ... sweetness, sweetness, I was only joking
When I said by rights you should be
Bludgeoned in your bed"
Instead, I think today was GERG and the defense's "How Soon is Now," moment:
"You shut your mouth
how can you say
I go about things the wrong way
I am human and I need to be loved
just like everybody else does"
