"There's a blue eyed girl with a red bow tie
and a string of pearls with one good eye"

Tom Waits - On the Other Side of the World.

I found it amusing - one good eye; blue eye, red bow tie; the other side of the world; eyeball kid - recurrent themes.

He's got something in his eye.

sadly, when the great red amoeba bursts from my chest and attacks my toupee, the ladies are unamused.

Mouse- there are quite a few odd ones, Cláudia mentions another...

Charles, you are quite observant of the detail, I can see why you are a writer.

very cool! the thing i always liked about eyeball kid was that it was one of those songs that he always played live but never released, kind of like strange weather. i thought it was a strange tune in the context of 'mule variations', maybe a better fit on 'bone machine', but its tom, therefore i love it however it comes.

And I, for one, can understand why.
