Lyrics
'Diogenes' © Ken Smith 8/04/2014 Beggin' with ya momma; down on bended knee Gotta listen to me momma; I need to ask your expertise Jus' what were you thinkin'; when you named your middle son Diogenes You claim inspiration; inspired by Greek philosophy But your infatuation with all things spartan was the key That leads to the research department, of my home town library RIFF I must confess confusion; when others ask my name Trials and tribulations were parts of life I overcame Attempting to find answers or maybe someone else to blame Older brother's Plato; younger's brother Socrates Yes my older brother's Plato; younger bro is Socrates Our sister's name is Bertha; Don’t ask why cause its all Greek to me RIFF Got a gal in Zephyr, Texas; plays the guitar in a band Drives a fancy Lexus; tatoos on the palm of her left hand She's a criminal attorney, dedicated, desecrated, nicely tanned Claims to have the answers; she got a cat that's Siamese She hails from Yugoslavia, and her name is Maryclees She's my Macedonian baby; I'm her sweet Diogenes Repeat 1st Verse RIFF OUT
