so long, farewell, auf weidersein, adieu

it's that time again. . .
.
this chick is a click-clicking. . .
.
.

and as for anyone
who never

(or rarely)
declares themselves,
mentioning no names. . .


here's lookin' at you, kids:



.
and the rest of you lovely lovely people
forget-me-not
I carry you in my heart

.

please hope that
no mirrors break!

for otherwise,
how will I squeeze my spots?


.
but actually,
the above is a fantasy,
the following is more like it. . .

(yeah, I know, that's pretty much a fantasy too!)
(a girl can dream)(well, this one can)
.
TA-RA
and look after yourselves
.
lots of love
Jacqueline XXX

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

[Chorus:]
What have I become
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

I was born by the river
In a little tent
And just like the river
I've been running ever since

It's been a long, long time coming
But I know a change gonna come
Oh, yes it is

It's been too hard living
But I'm afraid to die
I don't know what's up there beyond the sky

It's been a long, long time coming
But I know a change gonna come
Oh yes it will

Then I go to my brother
I say brother help me please
But he winds up knocking me
Back down on my knees

There's been times that I thought
I wouldn't last for long
But now I think I'm able to carry on
It's been a long, long time coming
But I know a change is gonna come
Oh, yes it will

"Goodbye To The Circus"

It's time to turn off the light
This has been such a beautiful night
We have served you a lot of delights
And some really wonderful sights

My friend, this is the end
So long and see you soon again
Bye bye, kissing you hi
Someday we will be back together

Goodbye to the circus
We hope you enjoyed the show
Now it's nearly at the end
But it will be back, you know

It will be back, you know
It will be back, you know

You have given us all of the best
You are beating inside our chest
Staying with us as time has gone by
Gave us hope when tide was high

My friend, this is the end
So long and see you soon again
Bye bye, kissing you hi
Someday we will be back together

Goodbye to the circus
We hope you enjoyed the show
Now it's nearly at the end
But it will be back, you know

The band played on, from dusk till dawn
And time is almost gone
The beat goes on, it's almost done
This music marathon

It will be back, you know
It will be back, you know

So
Goodbye to the circus
We hope you enjoyed the show
Now it's nearly at the end
But it will be back, you know

So
Goodbye to the circus
We hope you enjoyed the show
Now it's nearly at the end
But it will be back, you know

We will be back, you know
We will be back, you know

I would never normally go bowling
On a friday morning in New Orleans
But I like to come here to remember
The kind of places you took me
Like the time we stole a Datsun
And drove all night to the everglades
Until we crashed it in a big electric storm
And stood there listening to the bayou rain
The county sheriff had a hair - lip
Louisiana's pride and joy
He said politley as he cuffed me
"I never busted an English boy ...
But I will accept a contribution
To the Opelousas' Charity Ball
But you better drive this dirty Datsun
Into the Gulf of Mexico"
Under a Cajun moon I lay me open
There is a spirit here that won't be broken
Some words are sad to sing
Some leave me tongue-tied
(But the hardest thing to tell you )
But the hardest words I know
Are I love you goodbye
I love you goodbye
Typhoon Pierre delayed my plane till morning
(Jusqu'au matin)
Let the bontemps rouler from your accordion
(L'accordien)
Under a cajun moon I lay me open
(Y a un esprit partout)
There is a spirit here that won't be broken
(Simple words are sad to sing
Some words are sad to sing
(They leave me tongue-tied)
Some leave you tongue-tied
(But the hardest thing to tell you my friend)
But the hardest words I know
(Is I love you goodbye)
Are I love you goodbye
(Je t'aime, au revoir)
I love you goodbye
(Je t'aime, toujours)
I love you, goodbye

"We'll Meet Again"

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know
We'll meet again
Some sunny day

Keep smilin' thru
Just like you
Always do
'Til the blue skies drive
The dark clouds
Far away

And will you please say hello
to the folks that I know
Tell'em that I won't be long
And they'll be happy to know
That when you saw me go
I was singing this song

We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know
We'll meet again
Some sunny day

[spoken]
Yeah we'll meet again
I don't know where

I don't know when
But I do know
That we'll meet again
Some sunny day

[spoken]
So Honey
Keep on smilin' thru
Just like you always do
'Til the blue skies
Drive the dark clouds
Far away

And would you please say hello
To all the folks that I know
And tell'em I won't be long
They'll be happy to know
That when you saw me go
I was singing this song

[with choir]
We'll meet again
Don't know where
Don't know when
But I know
We'll meet again
Some sunny day

Mel said...

I don't suppose we could have 'swing lazily on the hammock' as an option this mornning, huh?

k.....in a bit I'll execute the option of swingin' lazily on the patio swing and watchin' the sunrise.

It's a wonderful world....
