"The Godfather of Lion Heart"
shitttty day had now arose,
For a went to work without my clothes.
Now in the nude, and late an hour,
Smell real bad ‘cause I missed my shower.
"I just want some bottled water"
Remember "I" before "E", except in Budweiser
Its like a big twelve pack Brice B.
I feel bad for those who don't drink because when they wake up in the morning that's as good as they are going to feel all day.
"I'm strangely comfortable with that."
"This is a friends hand, you wouldn't hurt a friends hand..."
"Your mom" - my favorite thing to say to him
"Work-up step and oypsy magic" in regards to an impossible organic synthesis problem.
woke up twice ‘fore I knew I was late,
I thought only bears could hibernate.
Climbed out of bed, hit the floor,
Into the wall, and out the door.
BEEEP, BEEEP, BEEEP I heard loud as hell,
Startled, I hit the snooze and let out a yell!
I wasn’t diseased, embarrassed, nude, or horny,
I just had a bad dream, it was only morning!
When ever I would wear my puffy jacket he and Frank would call me "G-hones"
"That looks dangerous, lets try it."
"Can't we just have someone else do it?"
"Or better yet lets just not do it and then tell them that we done done it."
"I love going out with a couple of buds and shooting come clays." - Sometimes he would even bring friends too.
"Its fun shooting Austin with an airsoft gun because he jumps and screams. See, hahaha"
"Beer is Beer, as long as it is Beer."
"I have a good time, all the time no matter where I am."
