When you quote Jimmmy (which I love) please attribute the lines! I've got 5 Jimmy songs in my head & am not sure what 2 of them are.....Beth*seen him 5 times...but not in years*
I think thats fair, although I am unsure that there should be any rules on this board per se. Anyway, if you've got 2 unknown Jimmy songs in your head, why don't you throw down some lyrics and let someone tell you what they are (I know its tough to hum a few bars on a post, but I'm sure we can do it.)Gekko II
the tunes are gone now - I should have referenced them in my post. At least my mind is quiet again!

At least my mind is quiet again!I wish I could say the same...I've had "Fins" running though my head all day...Can't you feel 'em circlin', honey Can't you feel 'em schoolin' around Fins to the left, fins to the right You're the only bait in town Hey you got fins to the left, fins to the right You're the only girl in town Chuck - Arrgh!
How about this one Chuck?Carnival WorldMy father always said that there's no free rideYou've got to make a sacrificeWith so manyProphets on the Lord's sideEven you soul has got a priceBut talk is cheap it takes money to buy your freedomAnd the tax man's knockin' on your doorToo bad it doesn't stop there. When I first heard the above I thought they were talking about work, (sacrifice and selling your soul,) and of course money to buy your freedom being FI and retirement. Unfortunately the song goes on IMO about blowing your wad:Spend it while you canMoney's contrabandYou can't take it with you when you goSpend it while you canBefore it's taken from your handThere's no free ride in this carnival world...Oh well, I guess it could be taken to mean live well in retirement. I am encouraging my parents to spend it while they can rather than leave a legacy to the kids.InParadisewhere the radio plays JB at least 10 times a day.Hope this wipes out "fins" for you.
Thanks IP, but I've still got sharks in my brain...I think you're right about the message in "Carnival World" being to live well while you can!None of us gets out alive...Chuck
or as JB has also said...I made enough money to buy MiamiBut I pissed it away so fastNever meant to last-Gekko
I made enough money to buy MiamiBut I pissed it away so fastNever meant to last----------------------Pirate looks at 40, right?
HeyBethPDX,Sorry about the later reply...I have been tied up in my unfortunately anti-buffett-like career..."A Pirate Looks At 40" is absolutely correct. Kudos! -Gekko II
