Punky's Dilemma

I have finally finished organizing my iTunes library. Everything is rated, playlists are made, now I just have to sync my iPod and I am ready to go. I have updated my profile at iTunes Registry with the new information. I have nearly 12,000 tracks! WOW!

I stumbled across some hidden treasures while sorting and removing duplicates. One is a favorite song of mine from the Bookends album by Simon and Garfunkel called Punky's Dilemma. I remember listening to this record as a child and deciding this was my song since my nickname was Punkie. Here are the lyrics.

Wish I was a Kellogg's Cornflake
Floatin' in my bowl takin' movies,
Relaxin' awhile, livin' in style,
Talkin' to a raisin who 'casion'ly plays L.A.,
Casually glancing at his toupee.

Wish I was an English muffin
'Bout to make the most out of a toaster.

I'd ease myself down,
Comin' up brown.

I prefer boysenberry
More than any ordinary jam.
I'm a "Citizens for Boysenberry Jam" fan.

Ah, South California.

If I become a first lieutenant
Would you put my photo on your piano?
To Maryjane--
Best wishes, Martin.
(Old Roger draft-dodger
Leavin' by the basement door),
Everybody knows what he's
Tippy-toeing down there for

It makes me smile every time I hear it!
