Since Stew has made it clear that he doesn't intend to transcribe his lyrics for our edification, I've decided to take the task upon myself. He says that the lyrics can't stand without the music behind them, and if he really feels that way, he should be playing jazz. While I agree that the lyrics combined with the emotional tone of the song is a more powerful image, I disagree that lyrics can't stand on their own. You can look at an image of just the face part of the Mona Lisa and still appreciate its beauty. I think Stew's lyrics are generally very clever, often funny in a tongue-in-cheek sorta way, and usually stand on their own.
Actually, the real reason to transcribe these is that I like to sing along with the CD in my car, and it sucks when I'm driving along and I come to a line of words that I don't know. Lyrical impotence is the true cause of road rage.
Of course, I'll probably incorrectly transcribe some of them, so if you know if one of the lyrics I have here is incorrect, let me know and I'll correct it. I'll also try to get the right lyrics from Stew if I can.
