#SLS for 7/19/20

Melody via Jim gives us Baking/Bread/Cake/Pie/Picnic.  This is hard since my first and only thought bubble for quite some time was “Cherry Pie” by Warrant.  Then I thought I might use a song by the band Bread until I decided I wanted a song with one of the prompt words in it.  As I proceeded to search, I came across this gem and it was 1973 all over again.  My brother and his friends listened to Budgie.  I didn’t what a breadfan was but I loved it!  Rock-n-Roll and a backyard full of boys playing basketball. Here we go without furhter ado …

Of course I had to google breadfan and wah-la to the wiki .

Bread as in moola, smackaroos, dinero.  Okay now I get it.  Better late than never.

“Breadfan”
(originally by Budgie) Writer(s): Bourge Anthony, Phillips Raymond Anthony

Breadfan, open up your mind, open up your purse,
Open up your bones, never, never gonna lose it.
Breadfan, take it all away, never give an inch,
Gotta make a mint, gotta make me a million.
Breadfan, you got it wrong, some long time friend’s
Gonna lose it in the end, who’s a fool.
Seagull, give it all away, stay a bird, stay a man,
Stay a ghost, stay what you wanna be.

Loser, give it all away, never stay with the winner,
With the man with all the filthy money.
Come on, keep it on the side, with a ride on a record,
On the top if you’re gonna be a bad boy.
Breadfan, you got it wrong, some long time friend’s
Gonna lose it in the end, who’s a fool.
Seagull, give it all away, stay a bird, stay a man,
Stay a ghost, stay what you wanna be.

Breadfan, open up your mind, open up your purse,
Open up your bones, never, never gonna lose it.
Breadfan, take it all away, never give an inch,
Gotta make a mint, gotta make me a million.
Breadfan, you got it wrong, some long time friend’s
Gonna lose it in the end, who’s a fool.
Seagull, give it all away, stay a bird, stay a man,
Stay a ghost, stay what you wanna be.

  1. I love that guitar playing — kick butt — and it’s in stereo in my speakers. Then that lovely gentle break in the middle. They remind me of Led Zeppelin and Moody Blues cross. Why haven’t I heard of this band????
