Spy on them POTUS use satellite
Infrared to see them move through the night
Aim gonna fire shoot them right
I’m gonna like the way they fight

Now you found the secret code I use
to blast away their lonely blues
So I can’t deny or lie cause they’re
the only one we will make’em fly.

Chorus:
A-bomb, H-bomb, it’s a big bomb!
You can shred it for me, when I need to make it go,
A-bomb, H-bomb, it’s a big bomb!
And baby please don’t turn it on.

No don’t get me wrong ain’t gonna do you no harm (no)
This bomb’s for lovin’ just don’t ask that Lamar though,
There’s no real target but come help tonight,
Let’s shred this A-bomb right!

Make it explode and oh you’ll know
your route to jail it won’t be slow
And yes, I must react to claims of those
who say that you are not all that.

And here I thought it was the fire next door. Tut tut, I’ll know better next time!

It’s just an old crapper-tank from an RV that some skateboarders slapped a bio-hazard band sticker on.

Do you know the way to Amarillo?
I might’ve been passing through, but kept on going to Dalhart.
Do you know the way to Amarillo?
I need a place where I can blog and not depart.

Just ask the OE Blog fellow.
He posts a pic and we just wallow.
In an hour or so comes humor gallow.
Than after that a song might be born
And all the bloggers that never blogged
Are posting their from night to morn.

You can really blog in Amarillo
And learn a trade, something like disarming nukes
Get a hammer and a screwdriver
Orange juice and vodka not a fluke.
Fun and glory is what we find
And blogging helps pass the time.
With poetic license you can turn a phrase
Words pour out and waltz away
So there you are without a care
You hit Enter and blog away.

PanTex is a real nice factory
Disarm a B53 and you’re a star.
Make the nuke, or two, into a hybrid car.
Shredding optional, next wait for the B54.
And all those bombs still to come
Blog on, have I gone too far?

I’ve got lots of friends in Amarillo.
Do you know the way to Amarillo?
Can’t wait to get back to Amarillo.

Doohickies are another topic entirely.

Neither one will likely provide you the results you expect.

That was the prior bomb.
