Good morning everyone! Randy Newman is better than Bruce Springsteen!


Actual Randy Newman lyrics:

Beat-up little seagull on a marble stair
Tryin' to find the ocean, lookin' everywhere
Hard times in the city, in a hard town by the sea
Ain't nowhere to run to there ain't nothin' here for free

Actual Bruce Springsteen lyrics:

Pony boy pony boy
Won't you be my pony boy
Giddy-up giddy-up giddy-up whoa
My pony boy

Also Bruce Springsteen:
Send the robber barons straight to hell
The greedy thieves who came around
And ate the flesh of everything they found
Whose crimes have gone unpunished now
Who walk the streets as free men now

They brought death to our hometown, boys
Death to our hometown

@wakingrufus But my love is bigger than a Honda
Yeah, it's bigger than a Subaru

@alex the nina simone cover of that track is.... pristine
