ODE TO GC

Well here it goes
Where I'll end up nobody knows
Type in [url="http://"http://www.greekcity.com.au"]www.greekcity.com.au[/url]
Now this is something new.
The screen comes on and there it is
All things Greek and familiar to me
The first web site I've ever been to
God there's so much here to see & do.
So I play around & find something called chat
I think to myself "I'd like to try that"
Here's my first hitch I need a nickname
Just mine where no one else has the same.
WOW check this out
Look at all the people talking
Well I'm not going to be left out
So I get my fingers walking.
I type in "HELLO"
and nothing happens
Oh is that where the cursor need to go
Damn thing it's like a weapon.
So I try again
"CAN ANYONE SEE THIS" I type
Then the miracle of technology becomes true
When someone said "WE CAN ALL SEE YOU".
But they talk funny
Part English,part Greece & part I don't know
What the hell is L.M.A.O.
I don't think LOL stands for lollies
And PPL for proposal
I thought myself clever that I could use morse code
But maybe for this I'm just too old.
WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT
Why did that line brighten up
"HELLO" they said,but if only they knew
"Dont go" I yell - I don't know what to do.
Well thanks very much
I don't think I care much for you
Fancy calling me an arsehole
And abbreviating it to just -ASL.
Well it's know been about a month
And I'm now over all that
I can't wait to get a spare minute
To get on for a chat.
There are still so many things I can't do
Like how to get into ADULTS ROOM
I really should get out and get some sun
But hard to do when I'm having so much fun.
Well I've now visited other sites
And even other chats
And for content and layout
GC admin you have my congrats.
The truth is I'm having lots of fun
Meeting some great people one by one
Enjoying the Greek spirit that lives within us all
In short I'm having a ball.

JOHNNY CASH LYRICS
"A Boy Named Sue"
My daddy left home when I was three
And he didn't leave much to ma and me
Just this old guitar and an empty bottle of booze.
Now, I don't blame him cause he run and hid
But the meanest thing that he ever did
Was before he left, he went and named me "Sue."
Well, he must o' thought that is quite a joke
And it got a lot of laughs from a' lots of folk,
It seems I had to fight my whole life through.
Some gal would giggle and I'd get red
And some guy'd laugh and I'd bust his head,
I tell ya, life ain't easy for a boy named "Sue."
Well, I grew up quick and I grew up mean,
My fist got hard and my wits got keen,
I'd roam from town to town to hide my shame.
But I made a vow to the moon and stars
That I'd search the honky-tonks and bars
And kill that man who gave me that awful name.
Well, it was Gatlinburg in mid-July
And I just hit town and my throat was dry,
I thought I'd stop and have myself a brew.
At an old saloon on a street of mud,
There at a table, dealing stud,
Sat the dirty, mangy dog that named me "Sue."
Well, I knew that snake was my own sweet dad
From a worn-out picture that my mother'd had,
And I knew that scar on his cheek and his evil eye.
He was big and bent and gray and old,
And I looked at him and my blood ran cold
And I said: "My name is 'Sue!' How do you do!
Now your gonna die!!"
Well, I hit him hard right between the eyes
And he went down, but to my surprise,
He come up with a knife and cut off a piece of my ear.
But I busted a chair right across his teeth
And we crashed through the wall and into the street
Kicking and a' gouging in the mud and the blood and the beer.
I tell ya, I've fought tougher men
But I really can't remember when,
He kicked like a mule and he bit like a crocodile.
I heard him laugh and then I heard him cuss,
He went for his gun and I pulled mine first,
He stood there lookin' at me and I saw him smile.
And he said: "Son, this world is rough
And if a man's gonna make it, he's gotta be tough
And I knew I wouldn't be there to help ya along.
So I give ya that name and I said goodbye
I knew you'd have to get tough or die
And it's the name that helped to make you strong."
He said: "Now you just fought one hell of a fight
And I know you hate me, and you got the right
To kill me now, and I wouldn't blame you if you do.
But ya ought to thank me, before I die,
For the gravel in ya guts and the spit in ya eye
Cause I'm the son-of-a-bitch that named you "Sue.'"
I got all choked up and I threw down my gun
And I called him my pa, and he called me his son,
And I came away with a different point of view.
And I think about him, now and then,
Every time I try and every time I win,
And if I ever have a son, I think I'm gonna name him
Bill or George! Anything but Sue! I still hate that name!
