Fun With Song Titles – “Papa Was a Rollin’ Stone”

This “Papa” fella? If you ask me, he was a lot more than just a rollin’ stone. Or less, to be more accurate.

Calling that guy a “rolling stone” is like calling Michael Jackson an eccentric, or George Clooney a glory hound: kinda sorta accurate, but way, way short of a full description.

Papa was a rollin’ stone the same way the Grand Canyon is a ditch.

And what’s with the storefront preachin’? Like anybody’s gonna listen to that guy.

But I guess a song titled “Papa Was a Self-Centered Adulterous Alcoholic Jackass Hypocrite Who Abandoned His Wife and Kids” doesn’t roll off the tongue quite the same way.

That’s just how *I* roll.
