When I played high school football, the head coach/lineman coach (small program) would make all of us linemen sing this song.

I've been told by many people that I'm the best at being humble, but I don't know about that. I'm nothing special at it.

Come on guys, this is a great opportunity to diss Gen Y, Z, etc for being narcissistic sociopaths with delusions of adequacy and belief in dreams of being TicToc Influencers or pop stars...
Wait, what? WE created them? But helicopter parenting and participation trophies are good things, right? Buying your kid's love is sooo much easier than actually teaching them self worth through accomplishments! Instagram and Facebook are such good babysitters, you just put the phone on the high chair feeding tray and Wham! You can watch TV In peace!
"Humble" doesn't get you that cushy "look down through the glass ceiling" job at Merryl Lynch!
You're the best looking, smartest, most talented C student in the world! If we buy your college admission at the right school and pay enough people to say you volunteer at the soup kitchen, well, baby, the skies the limit!!!

I could go on, but I need more coffee.

Strawmoms scare their strawbabies into being good by warning them that if they misbehave they'll grow up and get used in a post like that.

For a while, I played with the idea that all Presidents should have their own personal soundtrack besides 'Hail to the Chief' when they walked out.

For instance:

Bill Clinton - 'Ain't Misbehavin' ':  "I'm saving my love for you... (and you. and you. and you)."

GW - 'Good ole Boys': "Making their way.... the only way they know how; that's just a little bit more than the law will allow".

/I hurt a friend's feelings when I told him I couldn't come up with a song for Mitt (if he won), as I couldn't think of a song that changed its tune every 5 measures.

//This is the song I picked for DT.

Hookers and blow is a damned good band name, and also difficult to get during the pandemic.
The amphetamine effect of coffee and the titillation of being roasted on Fark is a sad substitute.

Participation trophies was about the fact that we over idolize winners of silliness

I don't think there's a studio version of this, is there?

We need a Sunday Morning music thread for songs in which the live version is superior to the studio version - or a studio version was never recorded.
