  There is no such thing as Bad Publicity in the News Room for Marketing and selling Advertising Space–The Storm Team

 

  And since News Coverage is a Public Contact Sport with the "Arab Spring (which we will have to start calling something like the "Mid East Mess" because the looming War in Iran is with Persians, not Arabs)."  And "Occupy Wall Street" will become "Occupy Washington D.C.," all too soon as the Twenty-"Teens" become "The New '60s."  The News' "Hairdos" will parrot "More Trouble Comin' Every Day."

 

MORE TROUBLE COMING EVERY DAY
 
 
{original rock guitar sound} 
Well I'm about to get sick
From watchin' my T.V.
Been checkin' out the News
Until my eyeballs fail to see
News Reporters say that every day
Is just another rotten mess
And when it's gonna change, my friends
Is anybody's guess
 
So I'm watching and I'm waiting
Hoping for the best
Even think I'll go to praying
Every time News Reporters sayin'
That there's no way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
 
{Done Rap style}
You know we gotta sit around at Home
And watch this thing begin
But I bet there won't be many live
To see it really end
'Cause the fire in the Street
Ain't like a fire in the Heart
And in the eyes of all these People
Don't you See that this could start
On any Street in any town
In any State if any Clown
Decides that Now's the time to fight
For some Ideal he thinks is right
And if a million more agree
There ain't no Great Society
 
{back to rock music}
'N I'm watchin' and I'm waitin'
Hopin' for the best
Even think I'll go to prayin'
Every time News Reporters' sayin'
That there's no way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
 
 
 
 
{this line spoken} Wednesday I watched a riot
{begin jazz music sound}
I seen the cops out in the street
Watch people throwing rocks and stuff and choking in the heat
Seen the News Reports
About the whiskey passin' round
Seen the smoke and fire
And the Market burnin' down
Watched while everybody on The Street would take a turn
To stomp and smash and bash and crash and slash and bust 'n' burn
 
So I'm watching and I'm waitin'
 Hopin' for the best
Even think I'll go to prayin'
Every time News Reporters' sayin'
That there's no way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
 
You can cool it
You can heed it
Cause baby I don't need it
Take your T.V. set and eat it
'N all that phony stuff on Sports
'N all those Unconfirmed Reports
You know I watch that rotten set
Until my head began to hurt
From checkin' out the way
The Newsmen say they get the Dirt
Before the guys on Channel So and So,
And further They assert
That any Show They'll interrupt
To bring you News if it comes up
They say that if the place blows up
They will be the first to tell
'Cause the boys They got Downtown
Are working hard and doin' swell
And if anybody gets the News
Before it hits The Street
They say that no one Blabs it Faster
Their Coverage can't be beat
And if another woman driver
Gets gunned down from in her seat
They'll send some Joker from Eye Witness
And you'll See it all complete
 
So I'm watching and I'm waiting
Hoping for the best
Even think I'll go to praying
Every time News Reporters' saying
That there's no way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
 
spoken
{Hey, you know something people
I'm not Right-wing
But there's a whole lots of times
I wish I could say I'm not Left-behind}
 
{back to jazz}
Well I've seen the fires burnin'
And the local people turnin'
On the Big Box Stores 'R Shops
Who used to sell them brooms and mops
And every other household item
Watch the mob just turn and bite 'em
And they say it serves them Right
Because Employees they did slight
And it's the same across the Nation
With benefits discrimination
They're yellin', "You don't understand me!"
With all that Sound Bite crap They hand me
In the News as on T.V.
That Mass Media stupidity
That seems to grow more every day
Each time you hear some "Hairdo" say:
"They want to go and do you in
Cause your political skin
Just don't appeal to them
No matter if your Left or Right
Because they're out for blood tonight"
 
{musical refrain}
 
{back to original rock guitar sound} 
As it applies to you and me
Our Country isn't Free
And the Law refuses to see
That all that you can ever be
Is just a lousy janitor
Unless your Uncle Owns the Store
You know that three in every four
Won't amount to nothin' more
Than pickin' 'n packin' the warehouse floor
And make up songs about being poor
 
So I'm watching and I'm waitin'
Hoping for the best
Even think I'll go to prayin'
Every time News Reporters' sayin'
That there's no way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin' every day
 
spoken
{Blow your harmonica son!} 
–original lyrics by Frank Zappa
 
MORE TROUBLE EVERY DAY

Found this version of "I'm The Slime" to replace the F.E.P.U. Only one above. Thanks Brian!
