Old Man Winter Went on Vacation,

So We Took a Spin, With Much Elation

Comin to ya on a dusty road,

Good lovin I got a truck load;

And when you get it, you got somethin,

So dont worry, cause Im comin.

The Blues Brothers,

Im a Soul Man

Were havin a heat wave,

Fifty Degrees in January;

So, I revved up my old bike,

And we took a spin, very merry.

As we raced down the muddy road,

One of my favorite songs in my head,

She yelled out, as she very often does,

You are truly an old fool, Mr. Ed!

Yeah, Baby,

But Im a Soul Man

I really love cruisin with you down these old city streets,

You know I learned how to drive before I could even eat.

I was brought up from good old Polish stock,

When I start drivin You Baby, I just cant stop.

Im a Soul Man,

Im a Soul Man,

Im a Soul Man!

(She) Youre Gonna be a Sole Man, If You Keep That Up.

Well, grab that sidecar, and Ill drive you in,

Give you hope, and be your only boyfriend.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!

(She) Youre an Idiotic Old Fool!

Now Baby, keep your eyes out for any homeless little critters,

Weve probably got just enough room for a few more, I figure.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!

(She) You Truly Are Insane!

Yeah, but where else could you have so much fun?

Baby Cakes, this love ride of ours has just begun.

Howd you like to drive down to the Burger King,

Maybe theyll let us play on that little kiddy swing?

(She) Dont You Dare Get On That Kiddy Swing Again, Mister!

And when we finally do get home, Im gonna take out the trash,

Hell, maybe Ill even clean up a little, and take a hot soapy bath.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah, Yeah!

(She) Its About Damned Time.

Im a Soul Man,

Im a Soul Man,

Im a Soul Man!

(She) Just Shut Up and Drive, You Old Fart.

Yes, Dear

(She) And are you sure this old bike has a full tank of gas?

Uh, no I made that part up.

And, uh, Sweetie, I think were lost

2008, A Cruisin Old Soul Man Mr. Ed

You have beautifully painted a fine ride and a nice way to live Ed, a way that has escaped many of us. Keep the sojourn Soul Man and please share the feelings with us.

You know, my grandmother had a bike like the one in your photograph that we used to go shopping in. She drove everywhere, even on the sidewalks when it suited her. She was a cool lady. I am happy that you are getting a chance to enjoy the heat wave, we hit 78 today! Unbelievable, don't know to wear summer or winter clothes, air conditioning or heat Sure wish mother earth would decide if she wants global warming or global cooling....

Be safe,

Gotta love it.

Love this one and can feel the rythem of the music and your words as they run together and could definately picture me running along beside you on my Yamaha Twin Star

Reviewed by Joyce Bowling 1/7/2008
Loved it! Man you could've really cruised here in Ky today the temps reached sixty nine...hard to believe and giving snow for the weekend! I always wanted a side car...but instead we got an ATV rhino...kind like a super 4-wheel drive golf cart...lots of fun, you could really bring home lots of little creatures in one of them. Dennis laughs at me because I'm always on the lookout when we go riding for rocks to go in my flowerbeds, bird nests for my class, and occasionally a deserted hornets nest, and I've been known to bring home a frog or two and a turtle once...the song was a great match, loved that movie! Enjoyed the write!
Blessings from Ky.

Well "Old Soul Man", you sure know how to enjoy a break in Old Man's Song...I plan to take a walk, could snow never know in IN

First, you take a Harley and lose the sheila with sidecar and all, or she better straddle back you and hold the goodies for all she's worth.
Second, you can ride that kiidie-swing all you want, they aren't president yet, and the future looks dark, Obama dark.
Third, and last, what the hell you didn't invite me and my 1957 Sportster for that ride? I gonna tell Jersey of your escapade though.

Man, you're some happy dude! I laughed all the way through, could relate so, you are very funny indeed, loved it! It's way above zero up here too, but far from your tropical break, speaking of brakes, does that thing you're driving have any! Bless you! Jasmin Horst
