Mean Meanie

Yes, I know that should be Jean Genie, but I am trying to use the word mean, if you know what I mean.  I think that I saw some of those Blue Meanies coming out of that Yellow Submarine.  I wonder what the people that are on the Ways and Means committee do?  It is probably some real important stuff, but that will have to be for another post.  Mean and lean without being obscene.  California has had some troubles lately with the tragic shooting and now these devastating fires.  I heard that Cher and Lady Gaga are worried about their homes burning up, or would that be down.  I guess the fires burn up and the houses burn down.  I hope my good buddy Dango is OK, but I think he is north of the fires.  That character on Dick Tracy ‘Mumbles’ was a real marble mouth and I never knew what he was saying or what he meant.  I will leave you with the Moody Blues “Say what you mean, Mean what you say.”

Written for 11/10/18 Linda G. Hill’s ‘Life in progress’ Stream of Consciousness Saturday where the prompt is “mean(s)”.

  1. I never heard that before. However, when you stated the name of the song I thought of someone else. Some group did a cover that became famous in the eighties, right?

    1. This was going to keep bugging me, so I kept looking. Here’s a segment:

      Somebody’s been lying to me
      But when the wrong word goes in the right ear
      I know you’ve been lying to me
      It’s getting rough, off the cuff I’ve got to say enough’s enough

      But when the wrong antidote is like a bulge in the throat
      You runs for cover in the heat why don’t they

      Do what they say, say what they mean
      One thing leads to another

      That’s by The Fixx.

  2. “I hope my good buddy Dango is OK, but I think he is north of the fires.” I’m north of the Southern California fires and south of the Northern California fires. You know, stuck in the middle! Hmm. Good name for a song! 😏
