All I wanna do is have some fun
Until the sun comes up
Over Santa Monica Boulevard

I like a good beer buzz early in the morning
And Billy likes to peel the labels from his bottles of Bud
He shreds them on the bar then he lights every match
In an oversized pack letting each one burn

Floatin' down that old river boy, all my worries far behind,
Floatin' down that old river boy, leave old memories way behind,
Yesterday is slowly fadin',
All my life, I've been waitin', for this time.

Floatin' down that old river boy, leaves me feelin' good inside,
Floatin' down that old river boy, tryin' to get to the other side,
Yesterday is slowly fadin',
I been waitin', now forever, for this ride.

Suzanne takes you down to her place by the river
You can hear the boats go by,
you can spend the night forever

And you know that She's half crazy,
but that's why you want to be there

I don't know what you call these seemingly random confluences in life but when I came upon the original post I was watching an episode of "Quincy"

Iím 61 years old now, Lord I never thought Iíd see 30
Though I know this road is still some way to go
I canít help thinking of
Will I be beloved and celebrated for my masterly climb?
Or just another bum when to comes to checkout time?

(for the living)

"Forever Young"
by Bob Dylan

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

Just us kids hangin' out today
Watchin' our long hair turnin' gray
Not so skinny maybe not so free
Not so many as we used to be

Again.....JJ Cale:


You know I'm goin' over sixty
I'm older than most
It won't be long now
I'll be nothin' but a ghost
My intentions
It's my intent
To leave all of them people
Out of my
Last Will and Testament

And when it's all over
They put you in the ground
Send my belongings
To the Lost and Found
My intentions
It's my intent
To leave all of them people
Out of my
Last Will and Testament

Chased a rainbow down a one-way street - dead end
And all my friends turned out to be insurance salesmen
Ah, but fortunately, I have the key to escape reality

People say I'm crazy
Doing what I'm doing
Well, they give me all kinds of warnings
To save me from ruin

When I say that I'm okay
Well, they look at me kinda strange
Surely you're not happy now
You no longer play the game

People say I'm lazy
Dreaming my life away
Well, they give me all kinds of advice
Designed to enlighten me

When I tell them that I'm doing fine
Watching shadows on the wall
Don't you miss the big time, boy?
You're no longer on the ball

I'm just sitting here
Watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll

No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go

Ah, people asking questions
Lost in confusion
Well, I tell them, there's no problem
Only solutions

Well, they shake their heads
And they look at me as if I've lost my mind
I tell them, there's no hurry
I, I'm just sitting here doing time

I'm just sitting here
Watching the wheels go round and round
I really love to watch them roll

No longer riding on the merry-go-round
I just had to let it go
I just had to let it go
I just had to let it go



-John Lennon -
