Appropos of yesterday’s post, Peanut today put in a Paul Simon CD to which I sang along. With gusto.
“Well that was your mother
And that was your father
Before you wuz born, dude
When life was great.
Now you are the burden
Of my generation
I sure do love you
Let’s get that straight.”
Oh, my dear Mr. Simon. Why did I not *hear* you before?
Some people are so good in capturing the real world in words.
I get an instant happy with “diamonds on the soles of her shoes” – you had me thinking about it yesterday. Simon is a genius.
GIANT smile. Truer words…
Aw. I read this last night and sang those lyrics to Tankbaby over and over again as I danced around the kitchen.
I only wept the first time. :)
