i got a new car today, november 9, 2010. it is new to me, but it is a 1996 explorer. it's shift on-the-fly four-wheel drive, it is so high up - it reminds me of the jimmy i got when i was 19 or 20. i went with my dad up to hackettstown from our house in bloomsbury - i bought it so that i could put a picture of my dog "timmy" on the back tire cover and airbrush out the j of "jimmy" to put a t there. at the "stroud mall" is where i had it airbrushed, in stroudsburg, pa - i used to go up to east stroudsburg university from home near i-78 and the nj/pa border because i wanted to be a gym teacher like "coach buzzcut" on beavis and butthead.

i came pretty close to applying at esu, i remember talking with a "guidance counselor" or whatever. anyway, i remember hearing rupaul's "supermodel" being blasted by someone who looked to be my age or younger when i was up there. he was in his car driving. that song came out in the summer of 1993, i guess he would've been blasting it when it was popular - but i am not sure if i went up to stroudsburg in 1993 or 1994. i would think i would've given up on the local colleges before trying esu. coach buzzcut was my hero, though.

anyway, here is an ode to my "shift on-the-fly" explorer af today that reminds me of my "shift on-the-fly" jimmy of yesterday. i guess i'm talking to myself.

where you going, boy, you leave the state quickly (jimmy, jimmy - oh - jimmy, jimmy)
your past would say you're just leaving for philly (jimmy, jimmy - oh - jimmy, jimmy)
hey, you lust to be king of the day-trips (jimmy, jimmy - oh - jimmy, jimmy)
you're just a boy who hasn't a place yet (jimmy, jimmy - oh - jimmy, jimmy)

why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why do you need to crutch life as you do?

why did you roam to jacksonville, you 'tard? (jimmy, jimmy - oh - jimmy, jimmy)
is it because life didn't get you too hard? (jimmy, jimmy - oh - jimmy, jimmy)
why do you always nag for the highway? (jimmy, jimmy - oh - jimmy, jimmy)
is it because you have no friends 'round your home-base? (jimmy, jimmy - oh - jimmy, jimmy)

why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why do you need to crutch life as you do?

you're much too riled to stay 'round
you've got no peers for fun, ya don't go out
you've gone a lot of miles in your make-of-car
way damned further than i had thought

look at your life, my god, how's the jim-may? (jim-may, jim-may - oh - jim-may, jim-may)
sixy towns - from henderson to erie-lake (jimmy, jimmy - oh - jimmy, jimmy)
i'd really love to drive but nothing lets me go (jimmy, jimmy - oh - jimmy, jimmy)
i couldn't ever now, i stay at home (jimmy, jimmy - oh - jimmy, jimmy)

why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why don't you need to crutch life - what'd you do?
