Number 12 – Careful How Much You Bite Off…

L-462738-1413091665-1282.jpeg

Let’s go back to The Cenacle one more time, and take a bite out of what was being offered…
 
Hard to refuse those loose hearted ladies…
Besides, if you say no, you may never get that offer again

Up 16 from 2014

Wow! I’ve said so much already about “Draw The Line” already, and everything that was going on during the making of this album, I don’t think I’ve got anything new to say,

Maybe just the fact that while the album AND the group were being trashed by Rolling Stone (again!), and many other media, this was the song I first latched onto from the album, not “DTL”, not “Kings”, not “Can’t Get it Up”. Nope it was this one! Pure Aerosmith through, and through! I’m sure there’s nothing new to say about the song either, with the same innuendos as other songs such as the Eagles; “Life In The Fast Lane”, or later, the Crue’s “Dr. Feelgood” relating the word “Doctor” to a dealer. And I’m sure the word “love” could easily be an acronym, for the drug of the day, or even the hour. With Steven’s getting upset, and throwing fits, during their time at the convent, about the “Bad” blow they were getting, it very well could be.

Or who knows? Maybe he’s asking for help with his relationship with Joe, knowing it’s just about over. Knowing that Joe is one half of him, and it’s gonna’ be real tough to keep going without him, However the infighting, he feels, is a dual edged sword. He knows he needs him, he “yells his name to crowd”. He knows they’re brothers, “Et Tu Like Birds of a feather”. Is he telling Joe to “Wake the fuck up!” and get his “sweet ass off the floor”, and make a record?

Maybe it’s about Cyrinda, or maybe it’s just a bunch words on paper to complete the song. Reading some of the lyrics below, you can get the impression it’s about all of the above.

No… I didn’t know any of it, or that at 14 years old, and I’m not sure I would have cared either way, I just love the climbing guitar riffs, that strong bass and drum line, and Tyleresque vocals, that only he can do. Just a kid upstairs in his room, with any friends who might want to get what I’m gettin’. It was a song that “screamed” out to me… Out loud! No real reason at the time. No real connection, just a really cool song off a record, that no one else seemed to like except me.

The youngest of nine, with two sisters and a brother still around (at least for another few months), who’s sisters, were listening to the likes of Dave Mason, or Bob Seger, or Elvin Bishop, The Doobies, or the Eagles, and one brother who couldn’t get past Song Remains the Same, or Ted’s two songs…I think they thought their little brother was goin’ off the deep end… maybe they were right, just not quite yet.

And I’ll tell you what… Seeing as though I’ve said so much already, and we’re on the eve of the Top 10, I invite everyone to really say something… anything! Say something about this song, or any song so far, or any song not so far. What are your memories? What do you feel? What images do they evoke from you life?
I really do want to hear from you!

Enjoy this one. Not sure it will be in my Top 25 tomorrow, but until then, today it’s Number 11!

Good advice though, Don’t bite the hand that feeds…
Wish, I’d had known…

Aa…
 
Doctor doctor doctor
Please doctor doctor please
Doctor doctor doctor
Feel like a old disease

Doctor doctor doctor
Get’chor sweet ass off the floor
Doctor doctor doctor
I can’t refuse any loose-hearted lady anymore

I scream your name into the crowd
You feel the flame but you ain’t proud
May-be your attitude ain’t right
So all that’s left for me to do is bite… the hand that feeds me (feeds me)

Doctor doctor doctor
Doctor doctor please

All things you put me through
What the hell you want me to…
Do all the things that Uncle John needs
I ain’t the dog that bites the hand that feeds me

In the middle of… with a spittle of…
Et tu… like birds of a feather
When another day love another way
Push shove make love play

Never never never ever
Never ever never ever
Na na na na 

Well
 

Doctor doctor doctor
Please do me what you can
Doctor doctor doctor
Wont’choo please give my life a hand

All things you put me through
A what the hell you want me to…
Do all the things that Uncle John needs
I ain’t the dog that bites the hand that feeds… me… yeah

Doctor doctor doctor
Please doctor doctor please
Doctor doctor doctor

Doctor doctor doctor
Doctor doctor doctor
Doctor doctor doctor
Doctor doctor doctor

I am a man of simple means. My family is what's important to me. My family and my 3 girls mean more to than the sun! If you ask me what I think, I will tell you straight! So don't ask if you don't wanna know. I like people who are real and don't like those who aren't. You'll know where you fit with me pretty quick. I give most everyone the benefit of the doubt, at least until they prove me wrong. I've lived most my life like there was no tomorrow, at least until my daughters were born, and then even a bit after. By the way; That is NOT good advice... just a statement. I don't believe in "Halfway" Why put on the skis if you're not gonna at least try the face? But I also believe that there is more than Black and White. I believe in where I came from, I don't believe what I went through was ALL worth it! I believe in doing the right thing, more than doing what's right! I believe in "true" friendship, I also know that 99% of them aren't true. I will live a happy life and die a complete man if my kids learn from my mistakes.
