[Dixielandjazz] Oops

In the "mama's gone goodbye" lyrics I believe I wrote:

". . . one whole stay home every night . . . "

That should have been:

" . . . one who'll stay home every night . . ."

Sorry 'bout that,

Bill "making things right" Gunter

>Hi Roberto
>>Anybody have lyrics to "Viper Mad" and/or "Mama's Gone Goodbye?"
>Mama's Gone Goodbye
>Fair thee well, (Mama's/Papa's) Gone Goodbye
>No need to sigh, no need to cry
>For years you dogged me 'round, now's the time
>To let you know what's on my mind
>I'm leavin' - I'm goin' away.
>Faith thee well, I've been to school
>Learned a brand new rule, ain't no one's fool
>Gonna find a (gal/guy) whole treat me right
>One who'll stay home every night
>Fair thee well, (Mama's/Papa's) Gone Goodbye
>>Not for me, as I couldn't care less about lyrics.  That's "couldn't" care
>>less, btw, not "could" care less, which is WRONG.
>No . . . "could care less" is perfectly ok. It's even better perhaps 
>because it uses the language of irony as in: "I could care less (but I 
>doubt it). Dig?
>Ah you literalists. You probably think double negatives are wrong too. You 
>probably are thinking in terms of mathematics where two negatives equal a 
>positive. Well language ain't math! Double negatives are used all the time 
>in many languages as INTENSIFIERS.
>"I don't want any" is pretty weak . . . pretty namby-pamby but "I don't 
>want NONE!" is the emphatic form.
>Now get off my back,
