    can you imagine ...... all the songs that got stuck inside when he went down for the dirt nap



    songs a lot in the dirt nap
    songs lost in the dirt nap
    dirt nap songs sing to me
    sing to me sweetly
    singing to me
    singing to me
    stuck but not forgotten
    beneath your flip flops
    Birkenstock unsightlys
    time out time out

    instrumental mental instrument
    time out for aperiodic reflection

    open up let us out
    let us out
    and know our new
    open up the knowing
    open up the knowing
    calling from the astral
    dirt nap treasure trove
    sing to me sweetly
    singing to me
    singing to me
    stuck but not forgotten
    beneath your flip flops
    flipidy flip flipidy-flipidy floppers
    flipidy asteral flopper
    filipidy asteral boppers boppers boppers
    stuck but not forgotten

    yeah maybe that'ss true. Don Van Vliet was one of the greatest post Howling Wolf Blues Singers of the twentith century
    Abstract expressionistic perspectives in blues lyricism as in Bukowski acceptisism never really sold well in the states . His lack of recognition here as compared to there (European /Easter European countries) had a lot to do with "that's not radio friendly
    Pat Boone-Rum and Coca Cola Andrews Sisters gloss and harmonies. We tend to like our artists in conceptually familiar packaging.
    Elvis, Jerry Lee, Chuck Berry, Fat Domino all packaged as the Bad Boys of Eisenhoweramerica never sang " I put a spell on you"
    and sounded like they really meant it while getting their thrill on top off Blue Berry's hill.
    Mississippi John Hurts sweet grand fatherly blues went down a lot easier than Bessie Smith singing
    having the best Jelly Roll in town.
