Song of the Week - Lawyers in Love by Jackson Browne

I have 6,640 songs in iTunes. This is one of them.

From the album of the same name. Sometimes you have to wonder how we survived the 1980s. I think the yodel is the best part.

I can't keep up with what's been going down
I think my heart must just be slowing down
Among the human beings in their designer jeans
Am I the only one who hears the screams
And the strangled cries of lawyers in love

God sends his spaceships to America, the beautiful
They land at six o'clock and there we are, the dutiful
Eating from TV trays, tuned into to Happy Days
Waiting for World War III while Jesus slaves
To the mating calls of lawyers in love

Last night I watched the news from Washington, the capitol
The Russians escaped while we weren't watching them, like Russians will
Now we've got all this room, we've even got the moon
And I hear the U.S.S.R. will be open soon
As vacation land for lawyers in love

Classic 80's stuff... Now, where did I put my parachute pants again?
