Was going through some vinyl this weekend and came across John Lennon Singing Watching the Wheels Go Round, and thought to myself, that's how a lot of people look at me and my diecast.....here's the lyrics, hopefully it will put a smile on your face when you related to the hobby.



People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing,
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin,
When I say that I'm o. k. they look at me kind of strange,
Surely your not happy now you no longer play the game,

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away,
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me,
When I tell that I'm doing Fine watching shadows on the wall,
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball?

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round,
I really love to watch them roll (especially White Lightning),
No longer riding on the merry - go - round,
I just had to let it go,

People asking questions lost in confusion,
Well I tell them there's no problem,
Only solutions,
Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind,
I tell them there's no hurry...
I'm just sitting here doing time,

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round,
I really love to watch them roll,
No longer riding on the merry - go - round,
I just had to let it go.

:cool:

I think we should base the theme song on that old 50s classic "Lolypop"

You know, "lolypop,lolypop, oh loly,loly,loly, lolypop. "Pop"

But of course instead of "lolypop", we would sing "Hobby Talk" :D :D :jest:

My wheels only roll about an 1/8th of inch at best!!! ;) ;) Now, if I shake the blister real hard, I can get the "WHITE LIGHTNING" lettered tires to make a half revolution. :devil:

"The wheels on the white go round and round, round and round, round and round, the wheels on the whites go round and round.......Shoot me!

What about this:

Downtown
Petula Clark



When you're alone & life is making you lonely
You can always go ~ Downtown
When you've got worries, all the noise & the hurry
Seems to help, I know ~ Downtown
Just listen to the music of the traffic in the city
Linger on the sidewalk where the neon signs are pretty
How can you lose?

CHORUS:
The lights are much brighter there
You can forget all your troubles, forget all your cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown ~ no finer place, for sure
Downtown ~ everything's waiting for you

Don't hang around & let your problems surround you
There are movie shows ~ Downtown
Maybe you know some little places to go to
Where they never close ~ Downtown
Just listen to the rhythm of a gentle bossa nova
You'll be dancing with him too before the night is over
Happy again

CHORUS
Downtown ~ waiting for you tonight
Downtown ~ you're gonna be all right now

And you may find somebody kind to help & understand you
Someone who is just like you & needs a gentle hand to
Guide them along

So maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all our troubles, forget all our cares
So go downtown, things'll be great when you're
Downtown ~ don't wait a minute for
Downtown ~ everything's waiting for you

Downtown, downtown, downtown, downtown...

BFK - That is it, the add-a-verse version. I believe the last three were added and I had to delete a couple of them because of the rather creative way they were written if you know what I mean!

Dip
