Some Humans

I always liked John Prine. I still sing his:
Came home from work this evening
There was a note in the frying pan
"Fix your own supper yourself
I run off with the Fuller Brush Man."
Unfortunately, John is no longer in his prime. But, he still cranks out some good lyrics, even if I can't understand the words half the time. Thanks for CD liners (I almost said album liners; how passe.) This is from his "Some Humans Ain't Human"
Have you ever noticed
When you're feeling really good
There's always a pigeon
That'll come shit on your hood

Or you're feeling your freedom
And the world's off your back
Some cowboy from Texas
Starts his own war in Iraq.
There you have it in a nutshell.

if it's got about ten songs or so, it's still an album, no matter if it is on a CD, a cassete tape, or even one of those old black round things... what did they call them again? vinyl records, i think.

apart from that, you could buy a single, which usually had two songs...go figure.

BTW, how many grooves are there on a vinyl record?

two, one on each side.
