Are You Following Me?
Have you ever said one thing when you really meant another? I said I wanted to be her friend, what I meant was I wanted to ber lover, wanted to be her lover. Have you ever said something when it wasn't what you meant? She said we might be lovers, what she meant was we'd never be more than friends, never be more than friends. She said she'd love to see me and could I come over later? What she meant was that she needed me to move her refrigerator, move her refrigerator. I said I was too busy but I'd be there in an hour. What I meant was I needed time to buy the champagne and the flowers, champagne and the flowers. And the chocolate. And the jewelry. And the gift certificates, I was there in half an hour. And standing on her doorstep, littlle bows on every package. Well, she meant it when she said she thought I might have over-reacted, I might have over-reacted. Well, I helped her with her housework and she said, let's go out walking. What she meant was she didn't want to have to listen to me talking, and so we went out walking. She said she'd love to hold my hand 'cause I wasn't like other fellas. What she meant was she was trying to make someone else get jealous, someone else get jealous. So there we were out walking, and someone came running after. And judging from his size, I'd have to say he played linebacker. For the Green Bay Packers. I told him to get lost and couldn't he see we're a happy couple? What I meant was he could have her 'cause she wasn't worth all the trouble, wasn't worth all the trouble. And the chocolate. And the jewelry. And the gift certificates, well I knew I was in trouble, 'cause he punched me in the nose and then I said I harldly felt it. What I meant was, please don't hurt me again! But I guess he couldn't help it. And finally I just melted. Well, I woke up un the sidewalk. And I heard her say you're my hero. ... As she kissed that other guy and I just felt like one big zero. So much for being the hero. So I hope that you've been listening 'cause I've been there and I've seen it. And no matter what you hear be sure to always read between it 'cause they don't really mean it. Yes I would have, if I could have, but you should have known it's understood, what I meant was, what I meant was, what I meant was I didn't mean it. ******** Since being discovered ranting and singing on a Brooklyn rooftop by a film crew scouting locations for Pork Chop's holiday classic 'White Trash Christmas' (which went on to feature Larry), he has made quite a splash. His first self-titled CD received great reviews and word-of-mouth with ever-increasing sales, downloads and airplay -- resulting in several guest appearances and wonderful cover versions by a variety of artists. Larry is particularly thrilled that THE ROCHES new CD includes two of his songs (one from the first CD and one from the new one). Paranoid Larry's new CD, ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME?, is even better than the first one! With powerful songs that are clearly of our time while maintaining the integrity of timeless classics, and great production, beautiful packaging, and a growing list of cover versions, this first pressing of his new CD has tremendous potential to be a valuable COLLECTOR'S ITEM. Paranoid Larry's sense of fun and his imaginary band blasting away with all their considerable might, majesty and finesse guarantee that ARE YOU FOLLOWING ME? will tickle your funnybone and get your toes tapping, your knees knocking, and the whole house rocking!
