You better watch how you talkin’ and where you walkin’
Or you and your homies might be lined in chalk
I really hate to trip, but I gotta loc
As they croak, I see myself in the pistol smoke

Gangsta’s Paradise, Coolio

(With the local media reporting just the other day that this has been the deadliest year in the city since the early 1960’s – and with 5 weeks of the year still to go – this sign particularly stood out to me today.  As a non-American, the gun culture here has always been a mystery to me…)

It’s OK, it’s alright, baby’s staying one more night
And just you, and I, maybe we can make it right
If you’re sure your answer’s no,
Take you where you want to go
It’s OK, it’s alright, baby’s staying one more night

It’s OK (It’s Alright), Fine Young Cannibals

Monday mornin’ feels so bad
Ev’rybody seems to nag me

You didn’t have to love me like you did
But you did, but you did and I thank you

All of a sudden I began to change
I was on the dance floor acting strange
Flapping my arms I began to cluck
Look at me, I’m the disco duck

Downtown searching for ‘er, looking all around
Saw her getting in a yellow cab heading up town
I caught a loaded taxi, paid up everybody’s tab
Flipped a twenty dollar bill, told him “catch that yellow cab”

Passed the church and the steeple
The laundry on the hill
Billboards and the buildings
Memories of it still
Keep calling and calling
But forget it all, I know I will
