Everybody wants prosthetic foreheads on their real heads

I came back as a bag of groceries accidentally taken off the shelf before the expiration date

tabloid footprints in your hair tabloid footprints everywhere

keep the nightlight on inside the birdhouse in your soul

she doesn't have to have her Young Fresh Fellows tape back now

you can't shake the devils hand and say you're only kidding

someone keeps moooving mmmyyyy chair
9:30 Club playing their 1990 album FLOOD in its entirety. Totally worth the 36 hour mini-vaca and loved having friends rock and roll enough to go with us!
Children: As you are reading this blog once we have died and are trying to connect with who we were as your parents, we must tell you. Before they were on the Disney channel, They Might Be Giants were a band both your parents brought to the marriage. We rocked to them in high school and college (your dad even danced to them for an audience and was busted up by the police--ask him about it someday--unless we are dead) and for one night, we rocked to them again as parents of three at a post-Thanksgiving concert in DC.

Jack took me to my first concert. TMBG
when Flood came out. It was awesome.

p.s. I think this is the only album I know all the words to.

"Why are we marching hand in hand? Why are the ocean levels rising up?"

someone tell me how a brand new record for 1990 was so long ago?!

Ann said...

i love they might be giants! the lyrics reminded me mostly of efy at byu in the 90s-that's about all we sang/listened to all week. sounds like fun! makes me want to bust out my cassette tape of 'flood'...too bad it's long gone!

Hey, Jaime...on your sidebar Jack's sister Elizabeth's blog comes up as the Woolley family. You know I only know that 'cause I love to lurk.

I want to know about "busted by the police" before I die.
Looks and sounds like you had a wonderful time. Parents know how to have fun too!

So before you die...lets hear the police story! Were you also somewhat befuddled to find TMBG on Disney?
