‘Cultured Country’ with Jim & Lisa – This Week: ‘Dirty Laundry’
Cultured Country returned this week before Thanksgiving week with a unique take on a girl-done-wrong song and even though Sir John is most definitely not a girl, he played one very well on the radio this morning. This week Sir John tosses a little pile of Culture in with the rest of the wash with his take on Carrie Underwood's, "Dirty Laundry."
That lipstick on your collar, well, it ain't my shade of pink
And I can tell by the smell of that perfume, it's like forty dollars too cheap
And there's a little wine stain on the pocket of your white cotton thread
Well, you drink beer and whiskey, boy, and you know I don't drink red
Found it over in the corner
Wadded up on the bedroom floor
You shoulda hid it in the closet
You shoulda burned it, you shoulda lost it
Now I'ma have to hang you out to dry, dry, dry
Clothespin all your secrets to the line, line, line
Leave 'em blowing in the wind, just say goodbye to you
All those midnights sneaking in
I'm late again, oh, I'm so sorry
All the Ajax in the world ain't gonna clean your dirty laundry
"Cultured Country," listen for it Thursday mornings at 7:45 with Jim & Lisa, "The Wakeup Crew," on Kicker 102.5.
Here's the way it sounds when Carrie does it...
How It Works:
The premise is simple, country music lovers like us are generally thought of as un-cultured, so to fight this ridiculous notion and bring what we consider a little more refinement to our show, we thought having someone from jolly old England read some country music lyrics, out loud, on the radio might raise the culture bar a notch or two. Since we don't have any access to the Royals and the only Brit we know in the immediate area just happens to be Lisa's husband John, that's the way we went.
