God Can't Read

Posted in

Football, baseball, basketball games
Drinkin' beer, kickin' ass and takin' down names
With the top down, get-a-round, shootin' the line
Summer is here and Johnny's feelin' fine
But Johnny can't read ..
Summer is over and he's gone to seed
You know that Johnny can't read
He never learned nothin' that he'll ever need
This is about focuses upon reading illiteracy and raises several thought-provoking questions, based on 1982's song by Don Henley. As emphasized to respect for reading, it might be stated by "like the air we breathe, should belong to everybody. Near the conclusion of this song, it sings the line of "There's a New Kid in Town," which was the chorus of the same name Henley recorded with the Eagles. "Johnny Can't Read" is included on Henley's debut solo album I Can't Stand Still, that it was inspired me to interprate about a conversation between an old cowboy to his God.
Once in the beauty of Sunday morning, an old cowboy entered a church just before services were to begin. Nama juga koboy, maka si tua itu memakai seragam khas yakni flanel motif kotak berikut jeans (walau belel tapi 501 series, my fave) dan boot kulit tinggi yg selalu berdebu. In his left hand ia memegang topi koboynya, dan di tangan satunya menggenggam Bible. Gereja yg ia masuki adalah salah satu terbesar in town, tempat favorit masyarakat terhormat berdoa. It's the largest and most beautiful church old cowboy had ever seen. People of the congregation were all dressed with expensive clothes and accessories. Sehingga tak heran, saat koboy kita took a seat, para jemaat rada moved away from him. Masalahnya jelas terlepas dari apakah si koboy tua itu orang penting atau gak, adalah soal penampilan. Dia dianggap gak proper, maka dia menjadi berbeda. Berbeda berarti asing, he's an outsider.
Well, Johnny can dance and Johnny can love
Johnny can push and Johnny can shove
Johnny can hang out, Johnny can talk tough
Johnny can get down and Johnny can throw up
B
ut Johnny can't read ..
Well, is it teacher's fault? Oh noo
Is it Mommy's fault? Oh noo
Is it society's fault? No noo
Well is it Johnny's fault? Oh no!

Nyaris gak seorangpun greeted, or welcomed him. They were all appalled at his appearance and jelas menampakkan gak menyukai kehadirannya. Selain asing, terutama sebab penampilan yg gk biasa selain merusak kemegahan gereja termasuk melecehkan standard pengunjungnya. Hingga pada akhirnya peribadatan selesai, si pendeta mencoba bijak and approached him sambil berpesan: "Before you come back in here again, have a talk with God and ask him what he thinks would be appropriate attire for this worship. OK?". Sang koboy tua hanya terdiam sembari mengangguk, memasang topi dan berlalu.
Couple years later, Johnny's on the run
Johnny got confused and he bought himself a gun
Well, he went and did something that he shouldn't oughta done
F.B.I. on his tail, "Use a Gun, Go to Jail"
But Johnny can't read ..
Summer is over and he's gone to seed
You know that Johnny can't read
He never learned nothin' that he'll ever need
Pada seminggu ke depan, he showed up for the services wearing the same ragged jeans, shirt-denim, boots, and hat. Sekali lagi, he was completely shunned and ignored. Ia memasuki bangunan termegah di kota itu, tempat favorit masyarakat terhormat berdoa. Hingga seusai ibadat, again si pendeta menghampirinya di tangga luar gereja dan bertanya: "Well, thought I asked you to speak to God before you came back to our church". "Yes I did", replied the old cowboy with feelings of respect.

"Kalau gitu, adakah pesan Tuhan padamu tentang pakaian yg pantas untuk beribadat di gereja ini?", lanjut sang pendeta merasa berhasil.
"Yes sir .. Tuhan bilang padaku, Ia gk punya ide tentang pakaian pantas itu seperti apa, khususnya catatan untuk di gereja ini. Tapi Ia sempat berpesan padaku, that He's never been in this church before!"
Well, is it teacher's fault? Oh noo
Is it Mommy's fault? Oh noo
Is it society's fault? No noo
Well is it Johnny's fault? Oh no!
Johnny can't read, Johnny can't read
Well, recess is over .. recess is over
Sitcoms, T&A, Johnny's mind is blown away
Cop shows, horror flicks, Johnny's brain is full of bricks
Rock show, video, boob tube, Rubik's cube,
Game fools, Sunday school, ten frames, gobble games
Wocka, wocka, wocka ..

Ini produk pertama Levi Strauss di taon 1880. Jeans awalnya dibuat di Genoa, Italia abad 16an, lalu dipopulerkan oleh pelaut Prancis yg menyebutnya "Bleu de Geans" berarti Biru Genoa. Mereka berlayar ke Amerika terutama sbg penambang emas, membawa Geans yg menjadi seragam pekerja.
