A Song for the Workshop Owner by the Guess Who - Friday Fun

I've had a soft spot in my heart for the Winnipeg band "The Guess Who" ever since I met them. That was years ago though, I was a Cub Scout on a tour of CBC studios and there 'they' were - dressed in hockey jerseys if I recall correctly. That would have been mid to late 60′s - Expo year perhaps? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ax3KVuYMHw

I do recall my parents saying the music of the Guess Who, Beatles and the Monkeys was just nonsense; meaningless. Yeah, but the beat was good and you could dance to it! The lyrics to the Guess Who song "Albert Flasher" are below. Read them through and find the meaning. Randy Bachman provides a bit of an explanation though.

ALBERT FLASHER - Burton Cummings: Guess Who I was a workshop owner in the gulch for the people And I offered myself to the world I was a workshop owner I was a workshop owner I was a diesel fixer, fixed a diesel, diesel fixed me What a weasel And baby was a workshop owner Baby was a workshop owner Baby and me were ripe for the pickin' That was the day we ran into Albert Flasher It was a cold, snowy, rainy afternoon And we were sittin' there in high school, my school And Michael was a moonbeam maker And Michael was a moonbeam maker I was a diesel fixer, fixed a diesel, diesel fixed me What a weasel, oh no Baby was a workshop owner Baby was a workshop owner Baby and me were ripe for the pickin' That was the day we ran into Albert Flasher ---- lead guitar ---- I was a workshop owner in the gulch for the people And I offered myself to the world I was a workshop owner I was a workshop owner I was a workshop owner
