Dear Rum, Sodomy & the Lash, Who wrote the book of love?
Dear Monotones, I'm going to make me a big sharp axe, shining steel-tempered in the fire. I'll chop you down like an old dead tree. Dirty old town, dirty old town.
Dear Rum, Sodomy & the Lash, Why do fools fall in love?
Dear Rum, Sodomy & the Lash, Who's sorry now?
What's your name?
Dear Lynyrd, One summer evening, drunk to hell, I stood there nearly lifeless. An old man in the corner sang "Where the Water Lilies Grow." And on the jukebox Johnny sang about a thing called love. And it's how are you kid and what's your name, and how would you bloody know?
Dear Rum, Sodomy & the Lash, How soon is now?
Dear Rum, Sodomy & the Lash, Will you still love me tomorrow?

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
