a parody of "Rhinestone Cowboy" by Glen Campbell
R.I.P. Alan Colmes, you were a good man in a bad place (Fox News Channel), no doubt you're in a better place now. This was my 2006 take on Alan's sad lot on "Hannity & Colmes", crafted out of one of the greatest songs of all time. Thank you Larry Weiss for gifting the world with "Rhinestone Cowboy" and thank you Glen Campbell for putting RC and so many other songs in our hearts and heads forever. Peace and love to you and yours.

Story about this misheard lyric by: Connie Brady

I had been long familiar with the lyrics of this song, when I recently decided to listen to it on youtube. Sometimes on a computer starting to need a restart, youtube can become erratic and skippy in its playing. Although I knew well that the correct lyrics to this line include "back roads", youtube got kind of jumpy in its playing just as those words came up. As a result, "bathrobes" suddenly clicked into my mind as if that were what the lyrics said. I got a good laugh out of that induced mishearing. I got to wondering what twist this change might might put on the sort-of philosophical underpinnings of this song. The song is sung as if by a happy-go-lucky free spirit type who celebrates more than he regrets a non-committal relation with someone he can drop in and out on at will. The line just before the one cited above says, "And the summer Sun might burn me 'til I'm blind,." acknowledging the hazards of such a lifestyle, cited at least metaphorically in the prospect of getting blinded, but the line cited goes on to expect a silver lining to the cloud, going on to say "but not to where I cannot see you....." What shift in the relevance or lack thereof to the metaphor might be hinted if he thought of seeing the addressee walking on bathrobes instead of back roads?!?

"He's Got the Whole World in His Hands"
Better Lyrics:
He's got Republicans here in His hands,
He's got Democrats there in His hands,
He's got that peanut farmer from Georgia in His hands,
He's got Carter's brains in His hands!!!
(God's got to wash his hands of ultraliberalism!)

Original Lyrics:
He's got everybody here in His hands,
He's got everybody there in His hands,
He's got everybody everywhere in His hands,
He's got the whole world in His hands.
