today’s song of the week:
“all my life’s a circle” by harry chapin

that guy’s amazing
i’ve had one of his songs (cat’s in the cradle) for months, but i didn’t bother to get anymore
but when i did, i found out they’re just as good as cat’s in the cradle
(many people think cat stevens performed cat’s in the cradle — that’s not true, he never did — that’s how i found the song, then i found out more about it and found out about harry chapin)
chapin has good music, and good lyrics, make you think
other songs include:
“taxi”
“dreams go by” — highly recommended
“a better place”
go find out

great songs

my official theme song:
i was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
but heaven knows i’m miserable now
i was looking for a job, and then i found a job
and heaven knows i’m miserable now

in my life
why do i give valuable time
to people who don’t care if i live or die

two lovers entwined pass me by
and heaven knows i’m miserable now
i was looking for a job, and then i found a job
and heaven knows i’m miserable now

in my life
oh, why do i give valuable time
to people who don’t care if i live or die

what she asked of me at the end of the day
caligula
[1] would have blushed
oh “you’ve been in the house too long,” she said
and i naturally fled

in my life
why do i smile
at people who i’d much rather kick in the eye

i was happy in the haze of a drunken hour
but heaven knows i’m miserable now
oh “you’ve been in the house too long,” she said
and i naturally fled

in my life
why do i give valuable time
to people who don’t care if i live or die

1 – the only reference to “caligula” i could find:
emperor of rome (37-41) who succeeded his adoptive father, tiberius. after a severe illness, he displayed the ruthlessness, extravagance, and megalomania that led to his assassination.

the blue sky is blue like blue bubble gum
but it prays to Allah, it prays to Allah
and like the flavour of blue sky and the bubble gum won’t last
we’ve got to thank Allah before our chances go fast

i don’t wanna be a grown up like the grown ups i have seen
cause the grown ups i have seen don’t seem to have much fun
they don’t get down on the floor enough to pray or play with toys
when i’m a grown up i won’t wanna be one

now if i hit back at the time of the Prophet
i know that he would be different i just know he’d find the time
and i would make him something special like some paper planes or something
i could race those planes with him or get a camel back ride

the blue sky is blue like blue bubble gum
but it prays to Allah, it prays to Allah
and like the flavour of blue sky and the bubble gum won’t last
we’ve got to thank Allah before our chances go fast

i’d like to write a promise, i want you to make it too
that if i misbehave a little like i sometimes do
you won’t get really mad and you’ll be patient like the Prophet
i really like my promise, how about you

’cause the blue sky is blue like blue bubble gum
but it prays to Allah, it prays to Allah
and like the flavour of blue sky and the bubble gum won’t last
we’ve got to thank Allah before our chances go fast

to be a mommy or a daddy must be really really hard
so let’s take a break together ’cause i know how much you try
let’s have a dish of apple sauce and tumble in the yard
and we can play and we can pray along with the blue sky

the blue sky is blue like blue bubble gum
but it prays to Allah, it prays to Allah
and like the flavour of blue sky and the bubble gum won’t last
we’ve got to thank Allah before our chances go fast
we’ve got to thank Allah before our chances go fast
