Spoken Folks, I'd like to sing a song about the American dream. About me, about you, about the way our American hearts beat way down in the bottom of our chests. About the special feeling we get in the cockles of our hearts, maybe below the cockles, maybe in the subcockle area.
Folks, I'd like to sing a song about the American Dream About me, about you About the way our American hearts beat way down in the bottom ofour chests About that special feeling we get in the cockles of our hearts Maybe below the cockles, Maybe in the sub cockle area, Maybe in the liver, maybe in the kidneys, Maybe even in the colon, we don't know. I'm just a regular Joe, with a regular job I'm your average white, suburbanite slop I like football and porno and books about war I got an average house, with a nice hardwood floor My wife and my job, my kids and my car My feet on my table, and a Cuban cigar. But sometimes that just ain't enough to keep a man like meinterested oh no, no way, uh uh No I gotta go out and have fun at someone else's expense woah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah I drive really slow in the ultra fast lane While people behind me are going insane.

At Emerson, he met fellow comic Mario Cantonewhom to this day Leary considers his closest friend.
