Music Man (The)


hey there mister music man
play your music like you did
last night when i saw you live
on fifth and amsterdam


hey there mister music man
spread your music 'cross the land
i'd follow you from here to there
just like you asked when i was there
but sadly i cant follow through
for my bestfriend is terminal
they say its name is Cancer


hey there mister music man
play your music spread your love,
like you did on 5th and amsterdam
would you come play for my friend
mister music man
play your music play every song you know
play them as you would for all
play them once for a thousand times
we'll put it on live tv
so the whole world can see


hey there mister music man
play your music
spread your love across the land
from here to there
make his last days worthy
as he falls into his dark sleep


hey there mister music man
play your music play your love
spread it far across the land
like the laughter of a baby
in a quiet room


like the laughter of a baby
in a quiet room
like the laughter of a baby
in a quiet room.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
