FEYNMAN LEAP by Mike Votava I don’t really care That I won the Nobel prize I’d rather close my eyes And try to get some sleep tonight Take it off the hook Don’t bother me again with all this nonsense You memorized the books You memorized the words But you don’t know what they mean I think that’s absurd and that’s the reason why Brazilian science is a fucking joke There’s a master of quantum physics By the name of Samuel Becket One day he will leap into me Right before I give a lecture The atomic bomb Is right here in this box This combination lock It’s not enough to stop Somebody like me from breaking in and reading all your secrets what a worthless bitch what a stupid whore I’m not buying her a drink I don’t do that anymore She’s still coming home with me Because All I have to do is ask her He says “oh boy”, surprised to find He’s Shaking hands with albert Einstein His friend Al’s a hologram That’s why the car can pass right thru him Teach me how to draw Show me how to shade Somebody will pay me To draw these naked ladies I’ll put it in a frame So you can hang it in your office you think that you’re so smart Well, I am not convinced What took you many years I learned in fifteen minutes This map of a cat Will show me the location of the whiskers Dr. Becket is changing lives He Answers to a higher power Setting right what once went wrong He hopes his next leap will be his leap home

The Bushwick Book Club is not your run of the mill book club. When we read books, we also want to write songs about them. And when we write songs, we like to perform them for an audience. So we book shows, and invite an audience to read with us!
