Finally, I gave him a yellow legal pad and a felt tip pen. I said, "Draw Daddy a picture." So he started drawing, and I'm trying to write a song. All of a sudden he shows me this picture that he'd drawn. It was a crude little rocket ship, and on the side of it, it had "P R L F Q." I said, "Well, what does that spell?"
