Waxing Lyrical

In honor of Rojo Wednesday (rumor has it today is some sort of "holiday", but, whatever), I have decided to post some of my favorite song lyrics.  You have been forewarned.  Now is your time to close out this post and continue to search for YouTubes of dogs in costumes.  Otherwise, enjoy.

"Do you remember our last dance?
 I never wanted to change pants
 With you.....but I did....
 And now you have my keys."

"You see about 5 seconds after I took that picture a giant robotic crab came out of the ocean and took you away (far away).
 I hear you're married now with little crabs of your own and if I saw you on the street I'd look away (look away)."

changing the tone a bit. . . .

"The Magician he sparkles in satin and velvet
 You gaze at his splendor with eyes you've not used yet
 I tell you his name is love, love love."

"He knows the verb to love but never will know how."

"I sail my memories of Pa on boats along the Seine."

"And I find myself just wishing that my mind would simply cease."

Also, the entire songs of Billly Joel's "And So It Goes" and "Goodnight my Angel". And that lullaby by Peter, Paul, and Mary (I used to sing it to my kids) "I'll Walk in the Rain by Your Side".

These are fairly obscure, I know, and I'm ashamed to admit I haven't listened to any current music since 1990 (I'm working on my certification as an Old Fogey), but I still think they're all pretty cool. 

Happy Rojo Wednesday, everybody, Trick or Beer!
