Normal service suspended – enjoy this rubbish cultural retrospective instead

B.B. King:

As long as payin’ I’m the bills, woman
I’m payin’ the cost to be the boss

I’ll drink if I wanna,
And play a little poker too
Don’t you say nothing to me,
As long as I’m taking care of you
As long as I’m working baby,
And payin’ all the bills
I don’t want no mouth from you,
About the way I’m supposed to live

You must be crazy, woman,
You just gotta be out of your mind
As long as I’m footin’ the bills,
I’m paying the cost to be the boss

Now that you got me,
You act like you are a shame
You don’t act like my woman,
You just using my name

I tell you I’ll gonna handle all the money,
And I don’t wanna no back talk
‘Cause if you don’t like the way I’m doing,
Just pick up your things and walk

Paul Anka:

Well she always knows her place
She’s got style, she’s got grace, she’s a winner
She’s a lady – whoa whoa whoa, she’s a lady
Talkin’ about that little lady, and the lady is mine

Well she’s never in the way
Always something nice to say, oh what a blessing
I can leave her on her own
Knowing she’s okay alone, and there’s no messing
She’s a lady – whoa, whoa, whoa, she’s a lady
Talkin’ about that little lady, and the lady is mine

Well she never asks for very much and I don’t refuse her
Always treat her with respect, I never would abuse her
What she’s got is hard to find, and I don’t want to lose her

Led Zeppelin:

Working from seven to eleven every night,
It really makes life a drag, I don’t think that’s right
I’ve really, really been the best of fools, I did what I could
‘Cause I love you baby, how I love you darling,
How I love you baby, how I love you girl, little girl
But baby, since I’ve been loving you I’m about to lose my worried mind, oh yeah

Please don’t pay attention to the chronology. Just absorb the truth.
