It’s gettin’ harder with texmachine

It’s gettin’ harder
to kiss her every day
Her growing hooters
are getting in the way
Her lips so big now
that she can barely say
Thank you for the
surgery you pay

She used to shine like a
brand new Chevrolet
She had the finest trunk
in the USA
Her heavenly hips
and legs had me prey
That she would look like this
forever and a day

Then last summer
on her 50th birthday
She looked in the mirror
and to her dismay
She discovered her youth
had faded away
She resembled a
centenarian Doris Day

But that woman of mine
is like a Morgan Le Fay
She found herself a
doctor in Santa Fe
Now she looks like
a pimped up cabriolet
Liposuction must have
sucked her brains away

Help texmachine keep Toogenblik alive 11th of March!

Saturday 11th of March, texmachine, together with Philo & Friends and Blues Hospital, will perform at GC De Linde, Kortenbachstraat 7, 1130 Haren (Brussels). The purpose is to raise money to keep the legendary Brussels live music café Toogenblik alive.

For 30 years now Toogenblik has been the refuge for many folk, blues and roots bands, songwriters and international ramblin’ music men and women. Toogenblik actually served as birthplace and nursery for texmachine almost 10 years ago, and has ever since served as the band’s homeground. texmachine are honored to be invited to support the future existence of this unique venue, which has been kept alive for so many years by a group of music loving local volunteers.

So join us at 7 pm for a celebration of handcrafted live music, a tribute to dear departed brothers in arms …and a kick-start for a new chapter in the story of Toogenblik!
