I love the song Punky's Dilemma by Simon and Garfunkel. Has fun images and a good beat. Anyhow, a friend and I were talking about it last night, and it came up that I can't tell what else he's talking about besides cornflakes, english muffins, a Lt., and Roger (draft dodger, not our drummer).
So as we were discussing it, we got as far as thinking it might be about different people's disposition on life, buuuut ... I think there is more. I feel like I'm not getting all of it.
Thanks for your input.
And for those of you who haven't heard it, here are the words, but really you ought it listen to it! ;)
Wish I was a Kellogg's Cornflake
Floatin' in my bowl takin' movies,
Relaxin' awhile, livin' in style,
Talkin' to a raisin who 'casion'ly plays L.A.,
Casually glancing at his toupee.
Wish I was an English muffin
'Bout to make the most out of a toaster.
I'd ease myself down,
Comin' up brown.
I prefer boysenberry
More than any ordinary jam.
I'm a "Citizens for Boysenberry Jam" fan.
Ah, South California.
If I become a first lieutenant
Would you put my photo on your piano?
Best wishes, Martin.
(Old Roger draft-dodger
Leavin' by the basement door),
Everybody knows what he's
