I am always amazed to hear songs like this that are so familiar after many years only to discover what were are actually saying...

like this bit...

...
Have a drink, have a drive
Go out and see what you can find

If her daddy's rich take her out for a meal
If her daddy's poor just do what you feel
...

Seriously??

Well hell, thanks for catching that, Sagadin.

There's another set of lines in there that bug me...

We're not bad people
We're not dirty, we're not mean

We love everybody but we do as we please

When someone tells me they're not bad or mean, red flags go up. And if they then say "I do as I please", I'm out.

In the summer of 1986, a drunk driver ran up onto the sidewalk in town and hit two young women, killing one and sending the other to the hospital. As I type this, the right side of my body feels a little fatigued, a lifelong result of the neck injury I sustained that day. I still miss Gena. Alcohol is such a big part of American (particularly Wisconsin) culture that I have to overlook a lot to get along, but I don't have to overlook everything.

That song is off my summer playlist.
