SEH #1

A lot of times there isn't much going on with us. It's hard to come up with something to post. I've been thinking about what to post on dull days and came up with a new feature for Earl World -- Song Essence Haiku (SEH). I'm going to post a series of haiku where each one summaries the essence of a particular song's lyrics. Basically a Reader's Digest condensed version of a song. I'll also give links to the complete lyrics. OK, these are a going to be a bastardized form of haiku, but here we go with a few examples to get started.

Signs everywhere.
Many bad scenarios,
so make your own sign.

5 Man Electrical Band

Chicago gangsters
have a gunfight with the cops.
Papa makes it home.

The Night Chicago Died
Paper Lace

A man meets a girl.
Goes from the bar to her place.
But she is a he!

The Kinks

Beautiful stranger;
say hi for her attention.
It’s love at first sight.

Hello, I Love You
The Doors
