Wow, hello, Mike!! Thank you so much for your response.
I've had limited chances to go on the internet lately & have just now seen your post!
"...Chickens Have Lips" is one of my favorite songs. I remember hearing it on Demento years ago.
After ages of not having heard it, about 2 or 3 years ago, I suddenly thought of it & wondered
if it still existed anywhere on the web. I checked youtube & there it was! Thanks so much for the song & thank Drake for me as well.
Regarding the penultimate line of the song, what are some of your other songs like?

Gotta go.. My time here is almost up. I might have a chance to go back on later.

Lies of glory
Song and stories
You can't take this from me
I've got history
The wine and whiskey
The August memories
You can't take this from me
I've got history

Music loud should drown you out
But in my ear you're shouting
The skill of knowing what to say
Starts to weather with the day
We could sit without a thought
Not a reason to check your watch

Yesterday - Nothing
But today is o.k.
I've enough to survive on
Tomorrow's another day

sorry (not really) but this one bears posting in it's entirety.
Mars Bonfire (Dennis Edmonton), from 1966/68. So many modern truths from 50 years ago.

Ahh, how you gonna make it, baby?
That's the question to be asked
Life goes on around you
In so many different ways
I know my share of history
How hard it is to be free
From wearing masks that turn to skin
Hiding what could have been

And I, I, I'm so confused
Which way, which way to choose

Don't buy dreams too easily
They're never what they seem to be
I want to sweep confusion clear
And never turn it back for me

Ride with me, baby
'Til the end of the day

The astronaut who goes in space
I, I'd like to take his place
His imagination's free
From the force of gravity
Take photographs and tape recordings
Play them back and try to find
If there is life on other worlds
And do they have a message

And I, I, I'm so confused
Which way, which way to choose

If I climbed higher than the sun
Looked into the universe
Back on Earth, I'd never speak
Just smile at everyone

Ride with me, baby
Til the end of the day

Popping pills just gets you busted
And the prophets were unwise
A beautiful thing has fallen through
With cancer, death and poverty
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the sanest of us all?
Is he with me or one of them
How does he dress, who are his friends?

And I, I, I'm so confused
Which way, which way to choose

Can I have my vision back?
I live outside the city walls
You don't have to be afraid of me
Until I come together

Ride with me, baby
'Til the end of the day

Mama's home philosophy
Makes everyone a freak but me
She says that grandma's hated you
And sends me all her love
I left home with sad goodbyes
Mama sits alone and cries
You can always count on us
Sorry, please come home

And I, I, I'm so confused
Which way, which way to choose

I write home I'm doin' fine
But it's just to ease her mind
'Cause I'm starving in the street
And can't predict the future

Ride with me, baby
'Til the end of the day

So many ways of living life
And each one has evangelists
Who say they've found the only way
And want it all to go astray
I ain't got time to live 'em all
So which one am I gonna choose
You know that I don't wanna lose
The promise of adventure

And I, I, I'm so confused
Which way, which way to choose

The funeral procession passes
Yes, I'm really twenty-one
People expect great things of me
The man of the year whose time has come

Ride with me, baby
'Til the end of the day

A moment's happiness in life
Is vaporized within the night
The lover that I had last week
Has kicked me out the door
I wrench in terror a plastic player
Of attitudes and old taboos
That keep me cold, outside of you
Trying to jump your fences

And I, I, I'm so confused
Which way, which way to choose

I'll soon find out what you want with me
I hope you'll be the last on Earth
Can't build a future in my head
That can't exist in time

Ride with me, baby
'Til the end of the day
Ride with me, baby
'Til the end of the day

"RIDE WITH ME BABY" - Mars Bonfire/Dennis Edmonton(McCrohan), yes brother of Steppenwolf founder Jerry Edmonton(McCrohan) and writer of this and "BORN TO BE WILD".

This repulsive world
The crimes we all commit
It's not your gravity
It's not my gravity

It's knowing that your door is always open
and your path is free to walk
that makes me tend to leave my sleeping bag
rolled up and stashed behind your couch...

And it didn't take long...

"Pineola"

When Daddy told me what happened,
I couldn't believe what he just said,
Sunny shot himself, with a 44,
And they found him lyin' on his bed.
