    "If I pour your cup, that is friendship

    If I add the milk, that is manners

    If I stop there, claiming ignorance of taste--that is tea.

    But if I measure the sugar to satisfy your expectant tongue, then that is love

    Sitting untouched, and growing cold."

    Cold Tea Blues, Cowboy Junkies

    I took two years of Latin in college, but I'm really rusty, such that I remember the sound but am not sure which endings -em or -um go with some of these. I was pretty good when I took Latin....we were translating Virgil, those were the days....I liked Greek better because we were translating Palaephatus' Peri Apiston, which is a hilarious work.

    quietly now, while i turn a page,
    act one is over without costume change.
    the principal would like to leave the stage,
    the crowd don't understand.

    So long, boy you can take my place
    I've got my papers, I've got my pay
    So pack my bags and I'll be on my way
    To Yellow River

    Put my gun down, the war is won
    Fill my glass high, the time has come
    I'm going back to the place that I love
    Yellow River

    Yellow River
    Yellow River is in my mind and in my eyes
    Yellow River
    Yellow River is in my blood, it's the place I love

    Got no time for explanations
    Got no time to lose
    Tomorrow night you'll find me sleeping underneath the moon
    At Yellow River

    Cannon fire lingers in my mind
    I'm so glad that I'm still alive
    And I've been gone for such a long time
    From Yellow River

    I remember the nights were cool
    I can still see the water pool
    And I remember the girl that I knew
    From Yellow River

    From "Imagine" by John Lennon

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace...

  • oompa

    worldtraveller was so disturbed by my "you light up my life" line from the Debbie Boone song he had to pm me and express

    surprise/revulsion compared to my other fav song lines.

    Great Catch WT....just a little sick oompa humor there!

    thought I should clarify
