Frank Abagnale Jr. , The Boston Red Sox, Babe Ruth, David Ortiz, and the love of my life.

That's Scott Johnson yelling at the top.


Frank faked his wings, passed the bar and bad checks-
A genius thief with a Peter Hood complex.
He deadheaded across the country, round the world, round the law.
He hung paper like pictures, sucked the world like a straw.

With faith in the misquotes of W.C. Fields.
Life fast and large like an aeroplane wheel.
But I guess you run out of suckers when you’re reaching for the sky.

And anything pecked to death will die.

Bucky Dent, Bill Buckner, Boone, and The Babe-
The “b” in Beantown might as well mean bridesmaid.
A curse is a curse is a curse is a curse.
But those pinstripe parades dig the scar that much worse.

“No, No, Nanette” to a 0-3 wreck.
Cue “Enter Sandman,” Big Papi’s on deck
And as Babe Ruth rolled in his grave even he realized

Anything pecked to death will die.

My love for you is strong. It is live. It is stout.
And it’s got enough fire to put the great ocean out.
It ain’t simple, ain’t perfect, but it’s true and it’s right.
Your love’s a flashlight, a flash flood, a floodlight.

Some people feel conned and some people feel cursed
I feel like I got a river in a world of thirst
I don’t understand it and I’m not so naïve to try.
No, I’ll never understand love and I’m not about to try

Anything pecked to death will die.
