Ritt inspired this title



Oakie-Tokie
words and music by C. Stewart ( Jan. 6, 2005 )

We don't have skyscrapers
Just convenience stores
Don't have fancy call girls
Just little country whores

It's not like New York City
We don't have central park
We roll up our sidewalks
As soon as it gets dark

CHORUS...
Welcome to the town of Oakie-tokie
We hope you catch your limit on the lake
Where good ol' boys wrestle gators
And country girls ain't afraid of snakes

The dogcatcher, he's our mayor
And don't mind being on call
The mayor is also the sheriff
The poor guy does it all

CHORUS...
Welcome to the town of Oakie-tokie
We hope you catch your limit on the lake
Where good ol' boys wrestle gators
And country girls ain't afraid of snakes

This small town livin', works for me
I got plenty of elbow room
Next week I get a promotion
They're gonna give me my own broom

CHORUS...
Welcome to the town of Oakie-tokie
We hope you catch your limit on the lake
Where good ol' boys wrestle gators
And country girls ain't afraid of snakes

CHORUS...
Welcome to the town of Oakie-tokie
We hope you catch your limit on the lake
Where good ol' boys wrestle gators
And country girls ain't afraid of snakes

Hello DIane,

Thanks for giving this one a visit !
I appreciate your comments a lot.
Well some of it is , some of it isn't.
No, my town is not quite that bad.
But it is a very small town with a BIG lake.

Good morning Rittman,

our grass grows in the dirt
it doesn't come in tufts
if you're not afraid of getting hurt
country girls like it rough

Our cowboys ride the biggest bulls
They have to be full grown
And once you get up on his back
You know you're on your own

Thanks for the visit.

Yep, pretty funny. The only thing that stopped me is that when I read "Oakie-toakie" I thought it was about small-town Oklahoma. People from Oklahoma have been called Okies for almost 100 years. But then gators??? I wonder if most folks would get it's about Lake SorryIcantspellit.
Took me a minute, but I enjoyed it.

Okeechobie? I hate snakes, too, Calvin! [Linked Image] I grew up in a small town. I can relate. In fact, our home telephone number was one digit away from the town sheriff's. We got alot of calls from desperate folks in the middle of the night!

This is a fun one, Calvin!

Reminds me of a town near us (and my husband has a cousin who lives there) ... Rabbit Hash, KY:

From the Cincinnati Enquirer:
Friday, September 3, 2004
RABBIT HASH - This 3.5-acre town along the Ohio River has been without a mayor since Goofy the dog died, but that's about to change.
The 25th annual Old Timers Day festival, noon-11 p.m. Saturday, will feature the kickoff of a political election like no other.

Goofy, a 15-year-old mixed breed, was elected mayor in 1998. He died a couple of years ago and was never replaced.

"We've decided that the mourning is over," said Don Clare, president of the Rabbit Hash Historical Society. "We've taken our flags down from half-staff. This town needs a mayor."

There are two candidates so far, with more expected to announce their candidacy at the festival. One of those running is Clare's mini-donkey, Higgins.

"I'm running him as a Republican," said Clare.

The election is simple. Each vote costs $1. You can vote as many times as you'd like between Saturday and Nov. 2. Bribing is legal and there will be plenty of beer around the polls, Clare said. Money raised goes to the historical society.

"The person who turns in the most money by Election Day on Nov. 2 is the mayor," said Terrie Markesbery-Young, who runs the Rabbit Hash General Store. "It's a true mercenary election."

The festival will include food, drinks, games for kids and four bands throughout the day.

A couple of thousand people are expected and parking is limited.

"We're asking people to car pool if they can," said Markesbery-Young.

The only other declared candidate for mayor is LuLu, a pot-bellied pig owned by Clare's wife, Sue.

"I think her campaign is, 'No more hog killings in Rabbit Hash,' " Clare said.

Hi C'est moi,

I'm really glad you thought this one was funny.

This town of course is just make believe.
It just has a name similar to mine, which is spelled Okeechobee.
They might get it, I kinda think so.

Thanks for the visit & the nice comments.

Calvin

"Grits is one of those country-boy words that is both singular and plural-like deer, elk and sheep. I think the singular is appropriate when there's a modifier that makes it clear one is talking about something specific. Like, 'Grits are good for you, but these here grits is tasty.'"~~Joe Wrabek

G'Mornin' Fella Floridian!

This Lyric's a JEWEL, Amigo!

For Me, the only maybe-stumble was Singer gettin' his new Broom...(which kinda makes Singer look Less-than-Elvissy..) ;-)>

& Perhaps "Okie-Lokey" to head off the Drug Busters' objections to "tokie"...(& a Hint at "Low Key" here early-on.)

Otherwise, "KUDOS" for a FUN One that's as Laid Back as it Gets!

Good Luck with this Good'n', Amigo!
Big Guy-Hug,
Stan

"This town of course is just make believe.
It just has a name similar to mine, which is spelled Okeechobee."

Oh, I thought it was a locals' nickname for Okeechobee or something. But hey, I'm from Montana, what do I know?
A good portion of the state, possibly including -- boy, I hope not -- the area where I am, is looking at minus 40 degrees by the middle of the week. What's a few snakes here and there?
I bet I can come up with a few choice nicknames for this place if it gets that cold.

Hi Tricia,

I'm sure you're out there working a 16 hour day right now but just wanted to say, you're starting to get the hang of spelling Okeechobee.
One more e & one less o & ya got it girl.
Just messin' with ya, like OLD MAN WINTER.

Hello Stan,

Thanks for the suggestions & the super-duper comments.
I kinda thought the broom thing might be funny.
And yeh, I thought about the tokie thing too.
But I think I'll leave em both, cause their sure is a lot of tokers here, & I like the broom idea.
Have a good evening.

Calvin
