The Monologue Pt. 3: Monologue *as* Song
"I just like to take a little of your time here to talk about two words that folks always like to use. They always talk about 'making love,' yeah 'making love'. But have you ever sit down to think about everything that's got life in it likes to make love? Did you know that? Why horses like to make love. Cows like to make love.
