How to Speak an Unpopular Truth

I can’t be the first person to point out that having “Moves like Jagger” isn’t a good thing, but a point this important is worth repeating.

Also worth repeating is my gratitude to all of you who are using my Amazon Affiliate links  (USUKCanada).

Just shoot for 'darn kids'
If it feels right
And aim for 'old gits'
If you feel like
And have more to say than 'they are all gay'
Keep going all day

You wanted a chat
So you abetted
I opened my lips
Now you regret it
You say I'm childish
The dirt that I dish
It simply goes swiSHH!
And it sounds like this:

Waggle 'round my tongue
Don't even know you
Bait me while I'm drunk
And I'll show you

All the whines like Meyer
I've got the whines like Meyer
I've got the whiiiIIIiiines like Meyer

I don't need to try to conform you
Look the other way and I'll inform you

With the whines like Meyer
I've got the whines like Meyer
I've got the whiiiIIIiiines like Meyer

So, in essence, having "moves like Jagger" is rather like having "Betty Davis Eyes"? I mean, inasmuch as hers were smallish, unattractive ON A GOOD DAY, and nothing to make up a song about?

Wait, when did "YouTube" become a verb, like "Google"?

Heh, my dad has been referring to both Jagger and Steven Tyler (From Aerosmith) as "the treasure trolls" for as long as I can remember, and I have to say it does suit them. For the longest time, I was never able to tell the two apart...

But Bohemian Rhapsody at least references classic literature... and knows what they're talking about.

Just watched "Dancing in the Streets." Wow, just...Wow.

Thank you, from the only other person who actually read Scaramouche.

Based on a few comments regarding the real subject of the song, I googled the lyrics and read them...

I am now preparing to drink bleach.

I just read the lyrics, incurring a Sanity Point loss. Unless the video is extremely misleading, this is not about dance moves AT all.

Wait, I just imagined Mick Jagger having sex. Dave, pass the bleach.

I know it isn't, but I always assume it's referring to Jaromir Jagr. Makes much more sense that way
