THE WHITE CASTLE BLUES
words and music by C. Stewart ( March 30, 2017 )


My burger's small, but it's got cheese
I always eat, twelve of these
My big fat mouth, thinks they're really good
Hell I'd even work there, if I could

But someone went and burned it down
Burned it right in to the ground
And gave me the White Castle Blues

And if they ever build again
I'll be the first one to walk in
And order up another twelve of those
I'm not afraid of mustard on my clothes

And maybe they won't burn it down
And burn it right in to the ground
And give me the White Castle Blues

Now I eat at a different place
I got a little something missing from my face
My big fat smile is gone, it's gone away
From all the smoke and fire on that day

When someone went and burned it down
Burned it right in to the ground
And gave me the White Castle Blues

I blame the cheeseburgers for this.
Another lesson in culture and chuckleability from you.

Hi Calvin,

Haha..mustard and hamburger..that's taboo in these parts.. wink

So many of your songs take me on a ride through a strange and uniquely cool carnival sonically, lyrically, and visually. This one's no exception.

Harold and Kumar and Calvin. smile

Love it..

Mike

Ah....sliders! I remember those from my days in Columbus, Ohio. I've never noticed one in Florida but I confess I haven't looked very hard. A good song with lots of emotion. Well done!

Saddest song ever.
The really sad part is that I think I know that guy.
The keyboard parts from about 2:18 on out are stellar.


I love words. They say so much.

Just Plain Quotes
"Our enemies may not be who we think they are. They are not Major Label monopolies. The world will always have 'majors.' They are not big corporations who own everything. The world will always have 'big' ones. Our enemies are not the loud mouthed critics telling us we will fail. The world will always have those too. Our most dangerous enemy is our own quiet acceptance of the fate we perceive these entities have mapped out for us. The only danger is our own complacency, or inactivity, and our willingness to believe so called experts who tell us we 'can't' and that our grim fate is inevitable." -Brian Austin Whitney
