Hugs - Paco del Stinko

Put on your greasepaint apply the lipstick
Attach the red nose and act the nitwit
The circus closed and you're still around
No more laughter such a sad sad clown

Where have all the children gone (you'll find them)

Streamers left in the rain and the distant whistle of a vanishing train
You listen as the echo fades and reminisce of forgotten parades
How long since you've spoken
How many years have you been broken
It's all been so long - you'll never see the break of dawn


You approach the park (the park) and give a wave (a wave)
Entice with baloons (baloons) that lead to a grave (a grave)
How many children did you find
How many grieving families left behind

Open the van door and throw in the sack
Two go for a ride only one comes back
Sit in the darkness the curtains are drawn
Still no more laughter can you tell me what's wrong

Where have all the children gone (you'll find them)

Streamers left in the rain and the distant whistle of a vanishing train
You listen as the echo fades and reminisce of forgotten parades
How long since you've spoken
How many years have you been broken
It's all been so long - you'll never see the break of dawn

Hugs—Lichen Throat

One time at the grocery store,
Cereal display out on the floor,
Right next to the Hawaiian Punch,
A guy was dressed as Captain Crunch.
Approached my wife, his arms spread wide,
Gave her a hug; he held her tight.
His suit was dirty and smelled real bad;
Even tried to go in for a grab.
No more bad hugs from smelly guys.
Keep your dirty hands off her thighs.

Right before my mother died,
The last time I saw her alive,
All she would do was sit and stare,
Never moving from her chair.
But once she climbed up the staircase
To give my wife a warm embrace.
The hug was such a sweet surprise;
Nearly brought tears to my eyes.

Last year at a wedding outside,
Stoner husband and his stoner bride,
Everyone said the groom’s big brother
Gave the best hugs, like none other.
He did demonstrations for the ladies;
Sure enough, his hugs drove them crazy.
Couldn’t quite figure out how he did it,
Felt inferior but couldn’t admit it.
Wish I had that guy’s hugging skill
So my mere touch would be a thrill.

HUGS by The John Benjamin Band

===VERSE 1===
Katy can’t save you, David is dead
Tommy went crazy, Taylor’s in bed
Kanye’s in rehab, thinking things through
Jay-Z and Beyonce did no better than you

===CHORUS===
When you’re face down in the mud
When they walk right by and shrug
Call my number, call my name
I will bring you kisses and hugs

===VERSE 2===
Is it your face, is it your hair?
Is it your father, is it the clothes you wear?
Is it your voice, is it God above?
Did you pick the wrong gender to love?

===CHORUS===
When you’re face down in the mud
When they walk right by and shrug
Call my number, call my name
I will bring you kisses and hugs

===BRIDGE===
I can’t offer guarantees
Some claim to see but I don’t believe
I close my eyes and think of a color
Take a deep breath, sigh, and think of another

===VERSE 3===
Your eyes are open, baby’s awake
There is no cure, no pill to take
We are together, everybody is here
And where there is love, there is nothing to fear

===CHORUS 2x===
When you’re face down in the mud
When they walk right by and shrug
Call my number, call my name
I will bring you kisses and hugs

Hugs
The 1st ten lines are the entire Shel Silverstein poem "HUG ' WAR"

(the rest are my twisted variants)

I will not play at tug o' war.
I'd rather play at hug o' war,
Where everyone hugs
Instead of tugs,
Where everyone giggles
And rolls on the rug,
Where everyone kisses,
And everyone grins,
And everyone cuddles,
And everyone wins.

(Shel Silverstein)

I will not work at lucky draw
I'd rather work at fuck it all
Where nothing is chanced
Instead of planned
Where everything fickle
Is part of the dance
Where everything settles
And comes to a point
And everything's loosened
And breaks at the joint

I time traveled
And made it all erase
Another life unraveled
And led me to
The strangest place

There nobody listens
Or gets in your face
There's nobody caring
And nobody's mad
And nobody's happy
And nobody's had

Hugs, by Pepper Jane

It's a little lucked out, but it's all I have
You can choose to opt out, like all the times I have
It's a little piece of nothing, that makes you feel something
No it's not so hard, can you feel my heart thumping?
Can you feel my heart thumping?

Paint it orange and black or just take it right back
I could make you believe that I'm never gonna leave
But you have, left, and all I have left, is...

Chorus 1
And it's all that I have now
Can you take it all back now?
I'm totally left out
Does your heart even beat now?

Paint it orange and black, like a beetle on its back
You can make them believe it's anything but cardiac
You're lost on a mountain, your heart full of doubt and
So many choices, and such a quiet voice, and you say

Chorus 2
And it's all that I have now
Can you take it all back now?
You feel totally left out
Does my heart even beat now?

Break, Chorus 1, Chorus 1

Chorus 3
'Cause everyone wants one
From complete strangers to strange family
But I'd about the only touch I get
Apart from airport security
Everything is about perspective. :shock:
