Selfies on O Street – a love song

I’d like to thank the woman I sat next to at the stoplight this morning on the way to work for providing me with the inspiration to butcher Warren Zevon’s poor song Werewolves of London after watching her strain at the red light to get her pose and smile just right for the camera. I’m sorry Warren, but it’s just one of those things I had to get out of my system. For those not familiar with Lincoln, Nebraska, O Street is the main east-west highway through our city and goes straight through the heart of downtown  and our main business district.

Selfies on O Street

I saw a woman with a smartphone in her hand
Sitting at a stoplight on O Street in the morning sun
She was lookin’ to take a selfie big smile on her face
Gonna post and wait for the affirmations to roll in

Aaahoo! Selfies on O Street
Aaahoo!
Aaahoo! Selfies on O Street
Aaahoo!

Ya see them snappin’ around your office
Ya better not get sucked in
Driver lady hit the car in front of her own that day
Takin’ selfies on O Street again

Aaahoo! Selfies on O Street
Aaahoo!
Aaahoo! Selfies on O Street
Aaahoo!

She’s the tightly-curled gal who snapchats in Starbucks
Lately she’s Instagram’d at Caribou
You better avoid getting in her way
She’ll smash your car with her yellow Jeep
I’d like to run over her damned phone

Aaahoo! Selfies on O Street
Aaahoo!
Aaahoo! Selfies on O Street
Aaahoo!

Well, I saw her walking on 13th downtown
Takin’ selfies on O Street
Makin’ a duck face at Walgreens
Takin’ selfies on O Street
I saw her drinkin’ a Fish Bowl at Duffy’s Tavern
And her permed curls were slick

Aaahoo! Selfies on O Street
Smile big now
Aaahoo! Selfies on O Street
