"Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master." - George Washington
It's nice that Bruce is helping out Mickey, but this song is mediocre Springsteen at best."Did you ever see a one-legged dog...?" Uh, no, Bruce. And I don't think anyone else has seen one of these remarkable hopping monopods either.
I like the song...granted, the "one-legged dog" line is a clunker. It's not the first odd phrase to show up in an otherwise pretty good tune...(I stll can't figure out the "just to buy you some shoes" line in "Drive All Night"). I wonder how a reference like "one-legged dog" gets past the meticulous Mr. Springsteen? Maybe he needs someone in his inner circle to be brave enough to step up and be an editor.

Are millions of people really missing that Springsteen is visualizing a 3-legged dog, not a 1-legged dog? A 1-legged dog would just lay there and squirm around, probably not do a very good job at all of making it's way down the street. I guess, like our eyes, our ears correct what we hear to a sensible image. Norfitz.
