"You walked in to the party, like you were walking onto a yacht...."
"Top floor Shoppers' Paradise
We've got a drunk Father Christmas and The Antichrist..."
Deja vu -
Could you be the dream that I once knew
Is it you
Deja vu -
Could you be the dream that might come true
"...Seems that needlessly it's getting harder
to find an approach and a way to live..."
Twenty years of schoolin'
And they put you on the day shift
Look out kid
They keep it all hid
More like a verse but it's a goodie.
I could have been someone
Well so could anyone
You took my dreams from me
When I first found you
I kept them with me babe
I put them with my own
Can't make it all alone
I've built my dreams around you
On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say which we won't understand
"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"
More Loudon Wainwright III - "OGM" from the album "Little Ship"
Tonight at last we finally spoke.
You sounded rather giddy.
You said you'd had a few drinks
And you'd been playing with the cat.
When I told you that I missed you
Your reply to me was, "Really?"
Then you said you might have found
Someone to share the flat.
"You don't give a flying fuck about the people in misery"-Democracy by Bruce Cockburn
And don't go mistaking Paradise
For that home across the road
Great song but i thought the bit to quote would be...
When you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but it's sinking;
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way that you're older.
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.

My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
5 years! [emoji106]
I sat there looking ugly, looking ugly and mean
I knew what you were saying, you were saying to me
Baby's got some new rules
Baby said she's had it with me
Every single word of Justin Currie's 'Dead Inside'
From Melonella, a string of butterfly names, and Elizabeth sings them beautifully:

After you've gone there's no denying
You'll feel blue you'll feel sad
You'll miss the dearest pal you've ever had
There'll come a time, now don't forget it
There'll come a time, when you'll regret it
Some day when you'll grow lonely
Your heart will break like mine
And you'll want me only
After you've gone after you've gone away
There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea
A little shy and sad of eye
But very wise was he
And then one day
A magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me
The greatest thing you'll ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return
I read somewhere when Nat King Cole recorded it there was a stunned silence in the studio afterwards.m I just looked it up on Wikipedia and I did not realize how many cover version there are. No mention of the George Benson version that has a totally different tune.
I am the one and only... Nobody idea rather be, I am the one and only... You can't take that away from me!
My song! It's how I feel about myself
Leaves are falling all around
It's time I was on my way
Thanks to you I'm much obliged
For such a pleasant stay
But now it's time for me to go
The autumn moon lights my way
For now I smell the rain
And with it pain
And it's headed my way
I gotta ramble on sing my song.
From the musical film " Annie " many years ago -
who cares what they're wearing on main street or savile row,its what you wear from ear to ear and not from head to toe,that matters
