Happy Town album at
Jill Sobule's, "Heroes"
The Lyrics:
William Faulkner drunk and depressed
Dorothy Parker mean, drunk and depressed
Paul McCartney jealous of John
Dylan was so mean to Donovan in that movie
Pablo Picasso cruel to his wives
Orson Welles peaked at 25, ballooned before our eyes
Heard Babe Ruth was full of malice
Lewis Carroll I'm sure did Alice
Plato in the cave with those very young boys
T.S. Eliot hated Jews, FDR didn't save the Jews
Raymond Chandler drunk and depressed
Tennessee Williams drunk and depressed
Who They Mention:
William Faulkner Dorothy Parker Paul McCartney John Lennon bob Dylan Donovan Pablo Picasso Orson Welles Babe Ruth Lewis Carroll Plato TS Eliot Franklin Delano Roosevelt Raymond Chandler Tennessee Williams

Jill Sobule's, "Palm Springs"
The Lyrics:
Wild horses, hawks circling, Gram Parsons, inspiration
Big cactus, coyotes
Something's going to happen to change my world
When I got there, to the motel
It was different than the website
It was crowded, mostly seniors
There was a bar band playing Bad Bad Leroy Brown
When I went to the main drag, I saw the statue
Of Sonny Bono, he was smiling
Sea horses, sharks circling, Brian Wilson, inspiration
Smart dolphins, waves crashing
Something's gonna happen to change my world
Who They Mention:
Gram Parsons
Sonny Bono
Brian Wilson

With a car like hers and dad likes hers
Who They Mention:
