Tuesday Pump-Up Post Pumps You Up!

August 21, 2012

I had a shitty night’s sleep filled with weird and wild dreams. For instance, I fought Denis Leary and Barry Sonnenfeld in a public shower like in the movie “Easter Promises” except we didn’t use knives – we used Corona bottles. Yep.

I was the naked Viggo Mortensen, but taller with slightly less tattoos. They were the random suited up Russian thugs. If you are concerned about the outcome… I fucked them up. Caught both of them early by throwing beer bottles right to the bridge of their respective nose. I pitched those fastballs like I was Sandy Koufax! Jewish and strong armed. It really only got worse from there for them. They can take a wild ass kicking, I’ll tell you that.

You may have had more restful dreams than I did last night, but either way I think everyone needs a pump-up on this Tuesday to get you motivated for the rest of this stupid day and for the rest of the stupid week. AM I RIGHT?!

Cue the music… (read the following modern poetry and take it to heart because… you are… the best… around)

Try to be best
‘Cause you’re only a man (or a woman)
And a man’s (or a woman’s) gotta learn to take it

Try to believe
Though the going gets rough
That you gotta hang tough to make it

History repeats itself
Try and you’ll succeed

Never doubt that you’re the one
And you can have your dreams!

You’re the best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you dow-ow-ow-ow-own

Fight ‘til the end
Cause your life will depend
On the strength that you have inside you

Ah you gotta be proud
starin’ out in the cloud
When the odds in the game defy you

Try your best to win them all
and one day time will tell
when you’re the one that’s standing there
you’ll reach the final bell!

You’re the best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you dow-ow-ow-ho-how-ho-own

INSPIRING GUITAR SOLO

You’re the best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you dow-ow-ow-ow-own

Fight ‘til you drop
never stop
can’t give up
Til you reach the top (FIGHT!)
you’re the best in town (FIGHT!)
Listen to that sound
A little bit of all you got
Can never bring you down

You’re the best!
Around!
Nothing’s gonna ever keep you down
You’re the Best!
Around!

repeat to fade, occasional background shouts of “Oh Ye-eah!”

Thank you to alex@letrascanciones.org for his gifted transcription of this truly inspiring message.

You are the best around.

Nothing is ever going to keep you down.

Why?

Because you’re the best around.

    I giggled at Easter, but then I got all serious and inspired at the “You’re the Best” song. So kudos to you, Sir, on your blogging, ass-kicking and inspiring.

    I didn’t get to have dreams last might because we had a power outage and I woke up even before the fans stopped spinning. I get no REM cycles in a non-F2 category storm environment.
