Illustration Friday: Packed


He's packed and heading down to the train yard because, well...

He kept dreamin'
That someday he'd be a star.
But he sure found out the hard way
That dreams don't always come true.
So he pawned all his hopes
and he even sold his old car
Bought a one way ticket
To the life he once knew,
Oh yes he did,
He said he would
Be leavin
On that midnight train to Georgia

Watch this video and tell me you don't want to be one of the Pips. The suits, the moves... I always wanted to be a Pip.

OOOh but this tickled me. He he he he he. Maybe he is one of the lost Pip? You know there are hundreds of us. I'm number 124,145,556. No really. I become a Pip every time I hear this song. This is simply wonderful and a great play on the word. Excellent. You've got my vote!
Signed
a Pip
