    Well, the man who plays the bass does make
    Those low notes that you hear
    And the high notes come from you and me
    For we will sing so clear

    So, come all ye rolling minstrels
    And together we will try
    To rouse the spirit of the earth
    And move the rolling sky

    Fairport Convention - Come All Ye

    Beyond a shadow of a doubt this final verse from Elizabeth Cooks’s Welder album “El Camino”

    “We went parking and things got blurry
    I thought man I can't get much hotter
    And then I caught a whiff of pina colada
    And we were making love in the disco era
    And he was Travolta and I was Farrah
    I was like man what is happening here
    Dude must of put a qualude in my beer
    If I wake up married, I'll have to annul it
    Right now my hands are in his mullet”
    I mean really. Anyone that can rhyme mullet with anything is tops with me. Btw- highly recommended album.

    Jesus saves, at Bethlehem Savings and Loan
    Where he got a free toaster, and a cordless phone
    The miracle of compound interest, even greater than rolling the stone
    Jesus saves, at Bethlehem Savings and Loan

    From the song: "Jesus Saves" by The Middle-Aged Mutant Guinea Pigs

    I'll stab you

    Clumps of hair
    In the sink
    Who's hiding things from me?

    You knew all along, goddammit
    But you wouldn't tell me
    Well, look at you now

    "Some are born to rule the world, to live their fantasies, but most of us just dream about the things we'd like to be, sadder still to watch it die, then never to have known it, for you the blind, who once could see, the bell tolls for thee..."

    Harry got up
    Dressed all in black
    Went down to the station
    And he never came back
    They found his clothing
    Scattered somewhere down the track
    And he won't be down on Wall Street in the morning.

    – Don Henley, Danny Kortchmar & Jai Winding, "New York Minute" (1989)

    A place to stay
    Enough to eat
    Somewhere old heroes shuffle safely down the street
    Where you can speak out loud
    About your doubts and fears
    And what's more no-one ever disappears
    You never hear their standard issue kicking in your door.
    You can relax on both sides of the tracks
    And maniacs don't blow holes in bandsmen by remote control
    And everyone has recourse to the law
    And no-one kills the children anymore.
    And no one kills the children anymore.

    Also from that great song...

    So we've kept the good old vices
    And labored to invent a few
    With cake in vulgar surplus
    We can have it and eat it, too

    Strings in the earth and air
    Make music sweet;
    Strings by the river, where
    The willows meet.

    - James Joyce (recorded by Dr Strangely Strange and Robin Williamson)

    I hear that the Emperor of China
    used to wear iron shoes with ease.

    We are the tablecloth and also the table;
    also the fable of the dancing leaves.

    The new moon is rising.
    The axe of the thunder is broken
    As never was, not since the flood
    Nor yet since the world began.

    - Waltz Of The New Moon by The Incredible String Band

    They came back from the Moon today.

    One of the parachutes didn't open.
    Tourists are swarming over the Alps.
    They shuttle by, buy postcards,
    lick ice cream, sit around the bandstand,
    show their suntans, load their caravans.
    The dollar is climbing, the dollar is falling.
    Our furniture has been in storage for over a year now.
    Where does one belong?

    - Holiday Time by Hildegard Knef (translation by David Cameron)


    Here come duck-tailed Danny
    dragging Uncanny Annie
    She's the one with the flying feet
    You can break the peace,
    Daddy Sickle Grease
    The beat is reet complete
    And the jump-back honey
    in the dungarees,
    tight sweater and a pony tail,
    will you guess her age
    when she comes backstage?
    The hoodlums bite their nails

    Black gloves, white frost
    Black crepe, white lead
    White sheet, black knight
    Jet black, dead white

    - Sweet Gene Vincent by Ian Dury & The Blockheads
