Sitting On The Back Porch




I don't know when I started listening to Edie Brickell.  I know my mom listened to her..anyhow, sitting out in the sun today with my dog brought her to mind.  This is a great song, one I used to love singing as a pre-teen because I got to say the word "bra" (oh dear).  I also like the song because it is so short and sweet and captures just how fragile the little things are that we take for granted.

Lyrics to Oak Cliff Bra :
Sittin' on the front porch in Oak Cliff with my bra - watchin' some cars go by.
A lady with a baby with only one shoe walks by.
The baby on her shoulder has his mouth open more than his eyes.
Where's his other shoe?
A little bird is bathin' on the driveway in a puddle of old rain.
A station wagon honks and swerves and almost hits a squirrel.
The squirrel gets crazy eyed and zippers back and forth across the pavement.
Talk about close calls.
