Yes, musically ol' Jessie Colin Youngblood could get the job done. The lyrics, hmmmm, not so much. This one's a little sappy, for sure. If you just don't listen to the words, it's great. Rodney King may have penned the lyrics, who knows for sure. Or John Lennon.You know those utopian dopes who think that if we just put down all the guns, break out the ukeleles and sing Kumbaya as we all sway back and forth with peace and love flowing through our veins, the world would be heaven on earth.Idiots.
It's just a song Fredd. I will try not to tell Miss America of your anti-world peace stance.
PS: Speaking of ukuleles, we could all just join hands, slap a 45 of that gigantic talent Tiny Tim on the record player, and sway euphorically to his enormous smash hit "Tiptoe Through the Tulips..." ahh, Kid, where have all the musical greats gone?
Surely you jest, Fredd?Oh God, I HOPE so!
I can't say I was ever a Tiny Tim fan. I was listening to Chet in those days.
FT, This is why Fredd will never place well in a Miss America contest.
The ONLY reason?
Ed, well Fredd has never shared a picture, so not sure about the rest.
Nice easy listenin' Kid, but I wouldn't call it "profound," would you?Fredd is right about its lyrics being a little too closely resembling Lennon's Imagine, which I regard as an Anthem for the Limp-Wristed Effete One Worlders.
Well, I don't take it that seriously. Just a easy listening tune. I don't take any lyrics all that seriously, except for Everyday People, Ball of Confusion, Crystal Blue Persuasion, stuff like that.Like, What in the hell do the lyrics of the #1 Rock tune mean ? Stairway to Heaven...
Well, there was this lady, and uh
Ed, are you sure she was a lady?
Takes me back to my college days.
AOW, Then I hope they were Good Ones !
