Another of what I hope will be a regular feature… short snippets of lyrics that I like. We will start first with the King of the Road, the King of Making Funny Noises to Take the Place of Lyrics…. Roger Miller.
“You can’t roller skate in a buffalo herd, you can’t roller skate in a buffalo herd
You can’t roller skate in a buffalo herd, but you can be happy if you’ve mind to”
It was difficult to not post the lyrics to the entire song because despite its confusing premise about buffalo herds, it is a really fun song. These lyrics are a glimpse into his positive outlook on things. Sure, you can’t drive around with a tiger in your car, and you can’t go swimming in a baseball pool but… you can be happy if you’ve a mind to.
