  3. Robert Farley:

    fixed.

  4. Erik Loomis:

    I think I’m going to use that “Roosevelt and Hitler” song everytime I do one of these. What is it not useful for?

  5. rea:

    You may read the Holy Bible
    Where Matthew’s does record
    There are ‘pistles (pestilences) and earthquakes
    And also rumors of war
    There you can see
    The Bible do fulfill
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in the land.

    (Chorus)
    Strange things are happenin’ in this land–
    Strange things are happenin’ in this land.
    The war is goin’ on,
    ‘Causin’ many hearts to mourn,
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in this land.

    Nations against Nations,
    Are risin’ in this land
    Kingdoms against kingdoms,
    You jus’ can’t understand.
    But you need not to be surprise
    For the time is drawin’ nigh.
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in this land.

    We have read also of famines
    That shall come in this land.
    But if you notice closely,
    You can see and understand.
    Provisions are so high,
    ‘ Til we can’t hardly buy,
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in this land.

    Roosevelt with Hitler
    He tried to live in peace.
    But Hitler he’s destroyin’
    Every vessel he could see
    He’s treatin’ us so mean
    With his dreadful sub-marines,
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in this land.

    Hitler, he’s a fightin’
    And makin’ every charge.
    He’s tryin’ to win the victory,
    So his land might be enlarge.
    He’s fightin’ everywhere
    On land and in the air.
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in this land.

    Some said Roosevelt was coward,
    And said he would not fight
    But he was jus’ only a-waitin’
    ‘Till he got things fixed up right.
    When he made it up in his mind
    He got on the foughtin’ line
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in this land.

    Hitler tried to fool the Negroes,
    By sayin’ they ought not to fight.
    They have no home or country
    No flag or equal rights.
    But the Negro knewed the best
    They deeds did prove the rest.
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in this land.

    When Uncle Sam called for them
    They answered, “Here are we,
    To perform a soldier’s duty,
    Where-’sn-ever we may be.”
    They answered true and brave,
    Ef the trenches makes they grave
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in this land.

    Hitler called the Japanese
    They could not help from cryin’.
    They say, “Ef you go up against that race,
    You comin’ out behin’.”
    If you try to take they place,
    You can’t not keep from dyin’.
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in this land.

    Hitler told his wife at the supper table
    He dreamt a mighty dream.
    “Ef I cut out these submarines,
    I will sure save many of men.
    But ef I fight and Ef I win,
    I will gain a many a frien’,”
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in this land.

    Now sinners, God is Power
    You jes’ can’t understand.
    The whole world will tremble
    From the moving of his hand.
    Hit’s beyond the human sights,
    But all he does is right.
    There are strange things a-happenin’ in this land.

    [It looks to me--and I've read something somewhere that I can't find again confirming it--that this was an old ballad, with Wilson and the Kaiser being the original protagonists--hence the emphasis on subs]

  6. Erik Loomis:

    Wouldn’t surprise me in the least.

  7. sue:

    “alphabetical” not “alphebetical”

    Fantastic song to open!

  8. Colin:

    Needs more Loomii.

  9. Both Sides Do It:

    Huge snub to the best ever death metal band out of Denton at the beginning.

  10. Dennis Orphen:

    The swoosh might need a piece of green tape (or a hat to keep with LG&M traditions). You could just tear the tape off when the recording is finished. Maybe I see too much. The music reminded me that I have a copy of Ry Cooder’s Into the Purple Valley around with the song “FDR in Trinidad” on it, another great Roosevelt song.

  11. bob_is_boring:

    Wait…there are more?

  12. Erik Loomis:

    Really, could the world handle more ranting about random things? I mean, I know that the world is now satisfied listening to Daryl go one for 2 full minutes about how Kevin Greene doesn’t deserve to be in the Hall of Fame and all, but do you all demand even more?
