NaBloPoMo Fluff

It happened last month, and so it happens again. I meant to blog about the last couple of weekends, but I've managed to exhaust myself while watching old Ugly Betty episodes (I didn't get back into it after the strike) and eating cheese melts. Yeah, I know, pathetic, but it has left me in a mood to listen to music and not write about stuff. It is not a lie when I say I do listen to pretty much everything and that doesn't make a good poem, apparently, unlike Feral Geographer's which made sense.
"Put your media player on shuffle, and write down the first line of the first twenty songs. Post the poem that results. The first line of the twenty-first is the title.”
Goodnight, to every little hour that you sleep tight

Gotta make a move to a town that's right for me.
Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play,
Memph' Bleek always smokin' that la-la-la.
Si la vez, dile que aun la quiero.
Waltzing round the room tonight,
he ran a marathon.
Yeah, I'm gonna make you wonder if you're my friend.
Anyday, now... it's gonna start - my real life.
I'm black I'm black.
On the bossom of young Abigail was written the price of her tail.
So this is odd.
Finally I figured out,
We used to be number 10.
You got me going.
Red lights are flashing on the highway.
It was crime at the time but the laws, we changed 'em.
And so the the story begins,
Whenever you want me,
We made a dance and buss de scene.
