“Dirty Laundry” by Don Henley

Dirty Laundry

DONATE TO THE GREEN HILLS ANIMAL SHELTER

“Dirty Laundry”, the words to this Don Henley tune are as relevant today as they were back in the 80s. It seems that the news outlets seek more dirt and don’t care about the “clean” that people do.  Dirty Laundry seems to always be the news of the day.

When I started this gig, I got some pretty cool press coverage from a lot of news outlets.  Almost every single one of them thanked me.  I was rather shocked at this at the beginning.  I thought they were thanking me for doing this for the animal shelter critters, but that wasn’t it.  Many of the news crews thanked me for giving them something “good” to report.  Day in and day out, they had to report on the “dirty laundry” of the world and they were thankful that they came and reported on something good, something selfless (these are not my words, but the words of the news crews).  I was glad to be a part of a bright spot in their day.

As I stated, the song is as relevant (sadly) today as it was back in the day.  Here are the lyrics:

I make my living off the evening news
Just give me something
Something I can use
People love it when you lose
They love dirty laundry

Well, I coulda been an actor
But I wound up here
I just have to look good
I don’t have to be clear
Come and whisper in my ear
Give us dirty laundry

Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down
Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down

Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down
Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em all around

We got the bubble headed
Bleached blonde
Comes on at five
She can tell you ’bout the plane crash
With a gleam in her eye
It’s interesting when people die
Give us dirty laundry

Can we film the operation
Is the head dead yet
You know the boys in the newsroom
Got a running bet
Get the widow on the set
We need dirty laundry

You don’t really need to find out
What’s going on
You don’t really want to know
Just how far it’s gone
Just leave well enough alone
Eat your dirty laundry

Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down
Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down

Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down
Kick ’em when they’re stiff
Kick ’em all around

Dirty little secrets
Dirty little lies
We got our dirty little fingers
In everybody’s pie
We love to cut you down to size
We love dirty laundry

We can do the Innuendo
We can dance and sing
When it’s said and done
We haven’t told you a thing
We all know that Crap is King
Give us dirty laundry
