    "When I'm watchin' my T. V.
    And that man comes on to tell me
    How white my shirts can be
    But he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke
    The same cigarettes as me
    I can't get no, oh no, no, no
    Hey hey hey, that's what I say..."

    Mike Drop...

    “Put on your red shoes and dance the blues.”

    “Under the moonlight, the serious moonlight.”

    “I see trees of green
    Red roses too
    I see them bloom
    For me and you
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world

    I see skies of blue
    And clouds of white
    The bright blessed day
    The dark sacred night
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world

    The colors of the rainbow
    So pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces
    Of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands
    Saying how do you do
    They're really saying
    I love you

    I hear babies crying
    I watch them grow
    They'll learn much more
    Than I'll never know
    And I think to myself
    What a wonderful world
    Yes I think to myself
    What a wonderful world

    Oh yeah”

    Great bit on the BBC Nile Rodgers documentary about this song! Believe or not it began as a folk song, amazing where it ended up!

    Not a big Fleetwood Mac fan (at all really) but:

    Thunder only happens when it's raining
    Players only love you when they're playing

    Is a pretty f@ckin' brilliant couple of lines.

    I took the tube back out of town
    Back to the rollin' pin
    I felt a little like a dying clown
    With a streak of rin tin tin
    I stretched back and I hiccupped
    And looked back on my busy day
    Eleven hours in the tin pan
    God, there's got to be another way
    Well, who are you? (who are you? who, who, who, who?)

    "Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
    Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way
    Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
    Waiting for someone or something to show you the way

    Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
    You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
    And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
    No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun

    And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
    Racing around to come up behind you again
    The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
    Shorter of breath and one day closer to death

    Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
    Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
    Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
    The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say

    Home, home again
    I like to be here when I can
    When I come home cold and tired
    It's good to warm my bones beside the fire
    Far away, across the field
    The tolling of the iron bell
    Calls the faithful to their knees
    To hear the softly spoken magic spell"

    Time- Pink Floyd

    These are the best lyrics, this is an objective statement.

    How many cabs in New York City?
    How many angels on a pin?
    How many notes in a saxophone?
    How many tears in a bottle of gin?

    I know I need a small vacation
    But it don't look like rain☔️
    And if it snows that stretch down south won't ever stand the strain

    I'll see your Wichita Lineman and raise you a "Gentle On My Mind"

    My beard a rustlin' coal pile
    And a dirty hat pulled low across my face
    Through cupped hands 'round a tin can
    I pretend to hold you to my breast and find
    That you're waitin' from the back roads
    By the rivers of my memory
    Ever smilin', ever gentle on my mind

    How many roads must a man walk down
    Before you call him a man?
    How many seas must a white dove sail
    Before she sleeps in the sand?
    Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly
    Before they're forever banned?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind.

    Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist
    Before it's washed to the sea?
    Yes, and how many years can some people exist
    Before they're allowed to be free?
    Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
    And pretend that he just doesn't see?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind.

    Yes, and how many times must a man look up
    Before he can see the sky?
    Yes, and how many ears must one man have
    Before he can hear people cry?
    Yes, and how many deaths will it take 'til he knows
    That too many people have died?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind.

    I play a version of this on acoustic and every time I do, I get lost in the lyrics. It’s a very haunting theme and melody for me.

    Interesting tale that Jimmy Webb wrote part of WL and sent it to Glenn Campbell who recorded it, hence it being such a short tune.

    Let your soul shine
    It's better than sunshine
    It's better than moonshine
    Damn sure better than rain
    Yeah now people don't mind
    We all get this way sometimes
    Got to let your soul shine
    Shine till the break of day
