Guess who's back? Were you all aware that Shady is back? Apparently I am supposed to tell a friend. Shady is back and he's chopped liver because no one wants Marshall no more.
My goodness the music these kids listen to. And apparently this song is 'old'. One of the kids in my shelter was dancing to this and then one of the other kids told them they shouldn't be listening to music so ancient and they played some strange, new thing with Shady again about burning. I swear one of the lyrics was 'you have to watch her leave through the window, guess that's why they call it window pane' or something ridiculous.
If only they knew how ancient their worker was. They asked me what kind of music I liked and I sort of squeaked something about Flogging Molly and shuffled away. Because 'Actually I prefer choral chamber music without instruments, because we used to believe they came from the devil so they weren't allowed in church!' might make me sound something of a loon.
So really, if I think about it, I don't think 'window pane' is any more ridiculous than believing a hurdy gurdy came from the devil. That Shady still sounds like a deeply unpleasant person.
