Blowin' In The Man

I've mentioned this before, but The Boss is one of those people who will sing misheard lyrics tunelessly at every possible opportunity. Normally I don't comment much on this because everybody has their irritating little habits and I wouldn't like to say she couldn't have hers just because she's a fucking mentalist, but today's is a bit special.

It goes something like this :

how many years must a man walk down
before they call him a man
how many doves must a white man walk
before he blows in the sand

the answer my friend is a man in the wind
the answer is a man in the wind

It's the best number she's written since we did a shipment to Callao in Peru a few months back and then for about 6 weeks afterwards she kept singing "Call-A-o! call-a-a-a-o!"to the tune of the Banana Boat Song.

Now that I've heard it about 37 times throughout the course of the day it's starting to grate on my nerves a little.

I'm probably going to end up choking her, you realise.


  1. So I stumbled onto your blog and proceeded to read through everything you've written.
    All I've really got to say is thanks for giving a poor college girl an idea of what not to end up doing with her life.
    Chin up, I'll be reading along and rooting for you.

    I'm so glad that I discovered your blog only a couple of days ago and you're back at it again.

    Chin up dear Koala, us here in Australia feel your pain too ;D

  3. Greetings from Cape Town.
    Just stumbled on to your blog and it made me laugh. Good luck with keeping your sanity.
