Nothing from Nothing

I'm not tryin' to be your hero, 'Cause that zero is too cold for me, Brrr

Now that Dotty is no longer riding around with me in the car I don't have to play the smooth music channel or NPR. I usually play the oldies or hard rock on the radio.

Today as I was riding along I heard the song you can watch below. It made me feel happy. I was smiling away.

This made me think what we really need in the Alzheimer's community worldwide is a happy, wild and crazy, international Alzheimer's caregiver day.

Lets say, June 29. 2013.


It might start off with something like the video below.

I will admit, I would have like to show this video to Dotty and then heard her reaction. It most likely would have made for an interesting and funny podcast.





Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin'
If you wanna be with me
Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin'
If you wanna be with me

I'm not tryin' to be your hero
'Cause that zero is too cold for me, Brrr
I'm not tryin' to be your highness
'Cause that minus is too low to see, yeah
Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
And I'm not stuffin'
Believe you me
Don't you remember I told ya
I'm a soldier in the war on poverty, yeah
Yes, I am

[Instrumental Interlude]

Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin'
If you wanna be with me
Nothin' from nothin' leaves nothin'
You gotta have somethin'
If you wanna be with me
You gotta have somethin'
If you wanna be with me
You gotta bring me somethin' girl
If you wanna be with me
