Where the Sidewalk Gets Very Weird

Many of you know Shel Silverstein as as the author of such classic masterpieces of children's verse as "Where the Sidewalk Ends" and "A Light in the Attic." But did you know he was also a prolific song writer who wrote hits for such greats as Johnny Cash ("A Boy Named Sue") and Sakatchestanian balladeer Gordon Lightfoot ("On Susan's Floor").

Dr Hook and the Medicine Show performed many of his songs with songs like "Sylvia's Mother" "Cover of the Rolling Stone," and "Queen of the Silver Dollar" becoming huge hits. But, I enjoy some of the lesser known songs he wrote for Dr. Hook. I really don't understand what they mean, but Cletis tells me they remind him of Sheila, our militia morale sheep, and our simple life at the compound.

Songs like these:

Penicillin Penny

Freakin' at the Freaker's Ball

Get My Rocks Off

Don't Give A Dose To The One You Love Most

Acapulco Goldy
