1. I told you!
...told you not to wander 'round in the dark.
I told you 'bout the swans, that they live in the park.
Then I told you 'bout our kid: now he's married to Mabel.

6. I should mention..
That those are the some of the most stupid lyrics around, but written for a very wonderful tune, "Badge," which was recorded by Cream and co-written by Eric Clapton and George Harrison and thus worthy of bellbottom and joint cred.

13. ...and for thirty years I thought it went like this:
I told you 'bout our kid: now he's not a tomato.

10. I'm trying to fit that Jefferson quote onto a bumper sticker.
I can't believe I have never noticed it before.

3. I used to threaten my kids
with coming downstairs in my bell bottoms and platform shoes.

I see now that the joke's on me ............

Why are Clapton, Baker, and Bruce embarrassing themselves like that? Surely they don't need the money!

11. Yeah, the amazing thing about this reunion
Is that Ginger Baker is still alive to participate in it.

7. Politician
Hey now baby, get into my big black car
Hey now baby, get into my big black car
I wanna just show you what my politics are.

I'm a political man and I practice what I preach
I'm a political man and I practice what I preach
So don't deny me baby, not while you're in my reach.

I support the left, tho' I'm leanin', leanin' to the right
I support the left, tho' I'm leanin' to the right
But I'm just not there when it's coming to a fight.

Hey now baby, get into my big black car
Hey now baby, get into my big black car
I wanna just show you what my politics are

8. I'm just amazed that Ginger Baker is still alive
35 years ago he looked like a good candidate for clocking out early.

18. Ah, the good ol' days...
seems like we are fighting the same issues today that I was then. I feel like I've been transported back in time. But I definitely have to lose about 1/2-body to fit into those bell-bottoms again.

19. Makes me yearn for the old Boston Teaparty on Fri/Sat nites
Acid, pot, acid, speed, acid, ludes, acid, meth. Sigh.
