Greetings and salutations to my extended family of Sounder Nation. I write today on this sunny (and dry!) Sunday afternoon to exercise a demon of sorts. Inspired by the contributors and posters at Sounder At Heart, I've got an "earworm" I'd like to share with all of you. I'm the kind of guy that hears a soundtrack to just about everything in life. Further inspiration comes in the form of one Gordon Gee (Ohio State President) and his comment on the smaller schools in college football he referred to as the "little sisters of the poor" back in 2010. Hmmm. I think a got a title here.

In the Timbers first three seasons, they've amassed 34 draws (15 in 2013). Every single time someone in a thread refers to Portland as "Draw City", it starts. The first surf tune to ever go to #1 on the U.S. charts takes over my brain and that's all it takes. Nothing wrong with pickin' on our rival, right? 2-pole possibilities here? So, in honor of our "Little Sisters Of The South", I give you my earworm.



DRAW CITY

(Sung to Jan and Dean’s – Surf City)

Two draws for everyone

I bought a '84 wagon and we call it a woody
(Draw City, here we come)
You know it's not very cherry, it's an oldie but a goody
(Draw City, here we come)
Well, it ain't got a back seat or a rear window
But it still gets me where I wanna go

And we're goin' to Draw City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Draw City, gonna have some fun
Ya, we're goin' to Draw City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Draw City, gonna have some fun, now
Two draws for everyone

You see they never roll the streets up 'cause there's always somethin' goin'
(Draw City, here we come)
You know they're either out on Burnside or they got a party growin'
(Draw City, here we come)
Well, with two honey hipsters for every guy
And all you gotta do is just wink your eye

Ya, we're goin' to Draw City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Draw City, gonna have some fun
Ya, we're goin' to Draw City, 'cause it's two to one
Ya, we're goin' to Draw City, gonna have some fun, now
Two draws for everyone

And if my woody breaks down on me somewhere along the way
(Draw City, here we come)
I'll grab my messenger bag and hitch a ride where I can
(Draw City, here we come)
And when I get to Draw City I'll be crawlin’ the pubs
And checkin' out the Rontom’s for a hipster girl

And we're goin' to Draw City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' to Draw City, gonna have some fun
Ya, we're goin' to Draw City, 'cause it's two to one
Ya, we're goin' to Draw City, gonna have some fun, now
Two draws for every
Two draws for everyone


Now I don't consider myself much of a writer. Last year when the call came out for new contributors for our "Family Blog", I considered an application for the Court Jester. Somehow I don't think I would have passed the background check.
