Thread Name: Lyr Req: Talking Nothin' Blues
Subject: RE: Talking Nothin' Blues
from memory:

"Well, I looked from the porch to the top of the wall,
Nothin' was there, nothin' at all.
Nothin' at all in any degree,
A predominance of vacancy"

There's a man in this town, goin' around,
Spreadin' nothin' all over the ground.
Heard some passin' people say,
"All that nothin' gets in the way..
There oughta be a law.

I went downtown, some nothin' to buy..
Pile in the window, 40 feet high.
The man in the store, he smile an' say..
'We got plenty o' nothin' today.
All vacuum packed....

Well, this song was written with nothin' in mind
Nothin' at all of any kind.
Nothin' at all in any respect..
We was aided by a poverty of intellect......
