Got To Get Better In A Little While

By eric clapton
Dont you know whats wrong with me?
Im seeing things I dont want to see.
Sniffing things that aint no good for me.
Im going down fast, wont you say a prayer for me?
Its got to get better in a little while.
Its got to get better in a little while.
Its got to get better in a little while.
Its got to get better in a little while.
The suns got to shine on my guitar someday.
Revolution all across the land.
Just like sly, you got to take a stand.
Please dont hurt nobody, dont knock them down;
Give them a helping hand to get off the ground.
Chorus
The suns got to shine on my guitar someday.
Still one thing that you can do;
Fall down on your knees and pray.
I know the lords gonna answer you.
Dont do it tomorrow, do it today.
Chorus ad infinitum

Hoop Dreams (He Got Game)

Man I had a crazy crazy dream dogg.
I had a dream I was in the nba straight playin basketball.
Nba straight getting my ball on dogg.
Can you imagine?
Snoop dogg in the nba?
Imagine that, hoop doggy dogg.
Yea straight ballin.
You know Im a ball anyway so why not.
Let me get my ball on.
If I could play in the nba
I would be that six-four all day shootin that trey
I dribbled to the outside and passed it to shaq
They double teamed on him so he passed it back
Look at the 3 but I dont take the shot
Cause I think Im cold and I aint trying to get hot
Im feelin bionic, we playing the sonics
And Im sticking gary payton so you know Im ball hatin
Bang on vin baker cause real lakers really dont care yea yea
Next stop in the court on damon toast stouda and my homeboy j.r. rider
Minnesota timberwolves, we cut em down
Hakeem olajuwon and scottie pippen, we shut em down
The twin towers, dave and duncan
20 in the paint fool you gets nothing
On a four game roll sweep, beep beep
We beat the bulls and we rocked the heat
And we traded for a few players, some pacers
Miller and mullin and now they lakers
We cant be beat now, we on a 27 game win streak now, bow wow
When it all started from a dream
Im playin point guard on my favorite team (lakers)
I got the big perm, doing interviews with chick herm
At stu lance, we do a dance
When it rains poppin shampane
Basketball yes yall thats the game
Two years ago a friend of mine
Ask me to glide from the free throw line
So I took the ball, and as I made the hoop
Everybody jumped up and they said "go snoop"
And my career jumped off into the fast lane
My rookie season I made my first all star game
Double g like george gervin, thats what the call me cause Im so ice
Ballin cause thats my life, I balls all day, and I balls all night
They call me snoop dogg and everybody know I love to hustle and ball
The season gettin tragic we lost to the magic
And the word is that rodman done had it
So I guess it on a young homie, the great number 8, mr. koby
Give him the ball dogg he ready
We got to play charlotte tonight, Im stickin eddie
Remember all the good times that we had
Cuz dont trip to long cause tommorow we play the jazz
Then it on to play the denver nuggets
The homeboy nick they traded, but damn I still love em
Keep a picture of em on the wall next to dr. j
Meach, I love basketball
Allen iverson on the fly boy he hard to stick
C webb comin through with a quick pick
The nba saturday mornings hey or maybe on a sunday
We in the playoffs so stay off the court
This aint no game, this a sport
And we in it to win it, we ballin, no limit
Remember this
When I grow up on wanted to be a point guard playing on nbc
With herb and suge or pistol pete or world b. free givin dap to me
Givin up my dues with converse shoes
And tellin all the kids to stay in school
This is true and your dreams can come true
If it happen to me, it can happen to you
Thats for all the nba players that dream of being a rapper.
Im a rapper that dreams of being a nba player and Im a baller.
Lets bounce up out of here man.

But at some point, we've got to have disciplined play and have got to coach better. I'm not putting it on the players. We've got to coach them to tackle and block better. It's as simple as that. If we can do those things, we'll have a chance.

Hold What Youve Got

(joe tex, additional words & music by carly simon)
You had better hold on
Hold on to what youve got
You had better hold on
Hold on to what youve got
cause if you think
Nobody else wants it
Just throw it away
And you will see
Somebody else will have it
Before you can count 1-2-3
You take love for granted
And its gone like a bandit
And this loneliness cuts like a knife
When you see what youve lost
Its already cost
The one you could love your whole life

What about those who don’t play by the rules

Who neither know them nor want to know them
They’ve got this play which never turns them into a game
Of midnight hunters chasing the tail of their own ego
They play the play of colourful fibers
Knit the rainbows in their head
They are the last to judge and the first to lift their eyes
Awe struck before the possibility of sight
Don’t hang your words on the eyes of a child
Growing into the Child
The way you put patches
Onto the holes of your own emptiness
The Future will laugh at you

Sonnet XVII: His Mother Dear Cupid

His mother dear Cupid offended late,
Because that Mars grown slacker in her love,
With pricking shot he did not throughly more
To keep the pace of their first loving state.

The boy refus'd for fear of Mars's hate,
Who threaten'd stripes, if he his wrath did prove:
But she in chafe him from her lap did shove,
Brake bow, brake shafts, while Cupid weeping sate:

Till that his grandame Nature pityijng it
Of stella's brows make him two better bows,
And in her eyes of arrows infinite.

Oh how for joy he leaps, oh how he crows,
And straight therewith like wags new got to play,
Falls to shrewd turns, and I was in his way.

Whoevers In New England

(kendal franceschi/quentin powers)
You spend an awful lot of time in massachutes
Seems like every other week youve got a meeting waiting there
Business must be booming or could something else
Be moving in the air up there
You say that its important for our future
An executive on his way up has got to play the part
Each time duty calls you got to give it all
Youve got with all your heart
When whoevers in new england is through with you
And boston finds better things to do
You know its not too late cause youll always have a place to go
When whoevers in new englands through with you
I hear the winter time up north can last forever
Ive been told its beautiful to see this time of year
They say the snow can blind you till the world you left behind
Just disappears I hear
I packed your bags and left them in the hallway
But before you leave again theres just one thing you outta know
When the icy winds blow through you remember that its me
Who feels the cold most of all
When whoevers in new england is through with you
And boston finds better things to do
You know its not too late cause youll always have a place to go
When whoevers in new englands through with you

Play Me

I must say youre really something else
The way youre tearing down my house
And I know youd never stoop so low
As to rebuild it somewhere else
You know how to play me
Everybody knows you can handle me
Play me
Nothing can compare with what Ive found today
It hasnt always been this good
I havent always loved you like I should
But its really something else
I love you like I never thought I could
You got to play me
Everybody knows I been woman handled
Play me
Nothing can compare with what Ive found today
Been out on my own
For too many years
You came not a day too soon - I was out of my mind
You swallowed my pride
And dried all my tears
Gone is the only tune
I sang
You really know
You really know how to
You really know how to play me
All the women of my dreams
Were the kind who lived beyond my means
But I know youd never stoop so low
Your love is always what it seems
You got to play me
Everybody knows Ive been - woman handled
Play me
Nothing can compare with what Ive found today
Here in the night
Its a shot in the dark
For sure thats a chance Ill take -one day at a time
A feeling so right
Its a walk in the park
Its so easy to make or break
She sang
So easy
Suis reste seul
Pour trop longtemps
Vide de coeur
Vide de sens
Tu es arrivee
Secher mes larmes
Reconforte, je te regarde

Play On Love

Now when you open your mouth, what comes out
Whats the first word, whats the first line?
When you open your mouth and love comes out
Then you know, you just sang the clear line
Ive heard people say it a thousand times
In a thousand different ways
Ive heard people play it a thousand times
And they know, they know thats the only way
To play.
You got to
Play on love
Play on love
Play on love
Play on love.
Now are you talking about what it is you know
Or just repeating what it was you heard
Someone told you just exactly what to say
And you know, you know thats only one set
Of words
You got to play on love.
Ive heard people say it a thousand times
In a thousand different ways
Ive heard people play it a thousand times
And they know thats the only way to play
You been a reading it without living it
Now thats the golden prison we can always find
Living in stories and living in books or
We can live and leave all the stories behind.
Its up to you and its up to me
Come down yelling timber through the
Burning trees
Whos been telling you about perfection
And how did he get in here, thats the question.
He mustve
Played on love
Played on love
Played on love
Played on love.
Ive heard people say it a thousand times....
You got to
Play on love
Play on love
Play on love
Play on love.
Reading it without living it...
You got to
Play on love
Play on love
Play on love
Play on love.

Bettys Got A Bass Boat

(bernie nelson/craig wiseman)
Now betty was your average ordinary girl
Never wanted very much out of this world
Just an occasional dinner and twirl, from a regular guy
So betty sat up one lonely night
Trying to figure out what a man might like
Then like a bolt right out of the blue, she got herself a plan
Bettys got a bass boat, bettys got a truck, all of a sudden things are looking up
Shes the most popular girl in town, since she got a new camper and a huntin hound
Might be coincidental, oh you just might never know
Oh, but things sure got a lot better since betty got a bass boat
Now lately getting a date isnt all that hard
Theres a half a dozen bubbas fightin in the yard
She won em over with her southern charm, and a satellite dish
Now betty cant believe her popularity
Shes thinkin bout marketing her recipe
So ironic and the funny thing is, she never even liked to fish
Bettys got a bass boat, bettys got a truck, all of a sudden things are looking up
Shes the most popular girl in town, since she got a new camper and a huntin hound
Might be coincidental, oh you just might never know
Oh, but things sure got a lot better since betty got a bass boat
Shes got bowling shoes, she cant lose
Shes got those boys just blowin their fuse
Shes got a big screen, shes in the in scene
Theyre ever gonna make her strawberry queen
Bettys got a bass boat, bettys got a truck, all of a sudden things are looking up
Shes the most popular girl in town, since she got a new camper and a huntin hound
Might be coincidental, oh you just might never know
Oh, but things sure got a lot better since betty got a bass boat

It's In The Game

[DJ Clue]
Yeah... DJ Clue...Dessert Storm...EA Sports...Come on
[Fabolous]
NBA Live...2003... Fabolous...Who Gon' Stop Me!!?
[Verse 1]
I hoop with the best of them swooped up the chest of them
dunked on a bunch caught ali-oops on the rest of them
I got the lean on the "J" now
it really don't matter if we play in arenas or playgrounds
throw it around the back so it look fly when I pass
just to avoid the block go high off the glass
I'm killing them out there they gon' have to bring caskets
this all I hear after the baskets *swoosh*
but I ain't even warm up
and still pull from where it counts for 3 points and leave the form up
you must be insane if you give me the lane or perimiter
the crossover will sprain every limb on ya
I never woulda, ever coulda
thought I could come off the baseline and jump over seven-footers
soon as you step out the locker room you now can see
how live it gets in 2003
[Hook: repeat 2X]
Who gon' stop me when I'm in the lane?
I come to entertain you know its in the game
Who gon' stop me? go and get 5
I D-up with 5 you know it gets live
[Verse 2]
I'm the crowd favorite and I believe the fans
love the way I finger roll it with either hand
my handles pull it through presses plus I can play the lane
and block shots like bulletproof vestes
I often be found in the paint waiting for I miss
so I can slam it back off the rebound
then I show off with class
look the other way when I throw off a pass
call it when I go off the glass
hope ya'll play better "D"
or I'ma keep scoring until the coach hold his hands like the letter "T"
When I put pressure on the ball they be feeling on lo

Play In The Sunshine

Oooh doggies!
We wanna play in the sunshine
We wanna be free
Without the help of a margarita or exstacy
We wanna kick like we used 2
Sign up on the dotted line
We gonna dance every dance
Like its gonna be the last time
We got 2 play in the sunshine
Turn all the lights up 2 10
I want 2 meet u (meet u), kiss u (kiss u),
Love u (love u), and miss u (miss u)
Do it all over again, do it all over again
We gonna play in the sunshine
Were gonna get over
Im feelin kind of lucky 2 night
Im gonna find my 4-leaf clover
Before my life is done
Some way, some how, Im gonna have fun
Play in the sunshine
We gonna love all our enemies
Till the gorilla falls off the wall
Were gonna rock him
Were gonna roll him
Were gonna teach him that love will make him tall (somehow)
Aah, pop goes the music
When the big white rabbit begin 2 talk
And the color green will make your best friends leave ya
It will make them do the walk
But thats cool
Cuz one day, everyday will be a yellow day
And lets play
We gonna play in the sunshine
Were gonna get over
Im feelin kind of lucky 2 night
Im gonna find my 4-leaf clover
Before my life is done
Some way, some how, Im gonna have fun
Play, play, play, play, play, play, play
We gonna play in the sunshine
Were gonna get over
Im feelin kind of lucky 2 night
Im gonna find my 4-leaf clover
Before my life is done
Some way, some how, Im gonna have fun
(play), (play),
(play) no, (play) no, (play) no
(come on, play) no!, (play) no!, (playplayplay) yes!
Drummer, do your thang
Drummer, drummer, do your thang
Drummer, drummer, drummer
Can I get some of that?
Lets get out of here (yeah)

Were not afraid 2 (play, laugh in the sunshine)
We are going 2
(play, laugh in the sunshine)

Reverse Psychology

Chorus/chant:
Reverse psychology
Doesnt work on me
It works my nerves
But I think logically
So dont rehearse what youre gonna say
I like it better the spontaneous way
You got an insecurity? I wont nurse it
I dont buy psyche - so why reverse it?
Verse 1:
Games are good for attention (mmm-yeah!)
But in the end they let you down
Hold me back or let me go
But no more middle ground
Boy, youve got to play your cards right
Get on back to the basics of love
We dont need no mindless mind games
A little give and take - push and shove -
A little honesty is what Im in need of!
Chorus/chant
Verse 2:
Dont you know Ive seen it all
Though I seem naive to you
(so now) hit me with anything at all -
Just hit me with the truth - yeah!
You keep thinking one of these days youll
Push my back against the wall (against the wall)
Its too late for tricks of the trade now
I can escape anything at all - oh!
A little push and shove - give and take -
But I wont fall!
Chorus:
Reverse psychology
Doesnt work on me (never did, never will)
It works my nerves
But I think logically
So dont rehearse what youre gonna say
I like it better the spontaneous way
You got an insecurity? I wont nurse it
I dont buy psyche - so why reverse it?
Bridge:
Why wait till something better comes along?
Why not stay steady and strong? (steady and strong)
A silver lining cannot be far away (be far)
Youll get much further if you
Do what you mean and mean what you say
1-2-3-i said.....
Chorus:
Reverse psychology
Doesnt work on me
It works my nerves
But I think logically (oh so much)
So dont rehearse what youre gonna say
I like it better the spontaneous way
You got an insecurity? I wont nurse it
I dont buy(I dont buy it) psyche - so why reverse it?
Chorus/chant
Jam! jam!
I said, jam!
Reverse psychology style
Jam
Jam (oooo - yeah!)

Kept Number One

What makes no sense to you now...
Has never made sense ever!
It's just that the expense of your escapes,
Have been diminished.
Like the realization of your question...
Does race matter?

In a place where cowboys and indians,
Has laced the bottom of Christmas trees
With packaged toy guns.
Gift wrapped to delight the eyes,
To have little boys and girls...
Chasing each other to run...
With visions to win something won,
From each other for fun?

And has made race the number one issue,
Whether at work or entertaining minds...
To this very day?

Does race matter?
It may now make no sense to you!
However...
From the point of view of those,
Sold on greatness...
And how that greatness has been achieved?
You better believe...
Race matters to them,
Who wish to keep that dream alive...
And thirsting within every soul that thrives.

To do it by using race and weapons...
And the fear of losing 'interests' threatened,
By those enemies created...
Wishing to put a limitation to these dreams!
Of course race matters!
That's why the momentum of hate,
Has been kept number one in the marketplace!
So it seems.

Does race matter?
Aren't people living in scattered divisions?
Reminding themselves of ethnic and religious,
Superiorities?
And 'what' deity is 'supreme to all of these?
Where do you think all of this started?
In the land that professes equal opportunities!
And all for one and one for all!
But not for everyone!
Unless you're lucky enough to play...
Professional basketball!
Or football.
Or baseball!
And carry those kinds of 'balls'!
To entertain and please,
For those kinds of escaping games.
To bring such tensions to ease.
For purposes to boast...
Of championships and hoist trophies!

And that's why race matters!
Even though that concept...
Has left a mess unaddressed.
And treasured foundations undone,
To distress!

Does race matter?
Isn't that on the lips...
Of those in mental fits?
Check your history!
When did it not exist?
OR statistics kept and strategies!

Truckin

Truckin got my chips cashed in. keep truckin, like the do-dah man
Together, more or less in line, just keep truckin on.
Arrows of neon and flashing marquees out on main street.
Chicago, new york, detroit and its all on the same street.
Your typical city involved in a typical daydream
Hang it up and see what tomorrow brings.
Dallas, got a soft machine; houston, too close to new orleans;
New yorks got the ways and means; but just wont let you be, oh no.
Most of the cast that you meet on the streets speak of true love,
Most of the time theyre sittin and cryin at home.
One of these days they know they better get goin
Out of the door and down on the streets all alone.
Truckin, like the do-dah man. once told me youve got to play your hand
Sometimes your cards aint worth a dime, if you dont layem down,
Sometimes the lights all shinin on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip its been.
What in the world ever became of sweet jane?
She lost her sparkle, you know she isnt the same
Livin on reds, vitamin c, and cocaine,
All a friend can say is aint it a shame?
Truckin, up to buffalo. been thinkin, you got to mellow slow
Takes time, you pick a place to go, and just keep truckin on.
Sittin and starin out of the hotel window.
Got a tip theyre gonna kick the door in again
Id like to get some sleep before I travel,
But if you got a warrant, I guess youre gonna come in.
Busted, down on bourbon street, set up, like a bowlin pin.
Knocked down, it gets to wearin thin. they just wont let you be, oh no.
Youre sick of hangin around and youd like to travel;
Get tired of travelin and you want to settle down.
I guess they cant revoke your soul for tryin,
Get out of the door and light out and look all around.
Sometimes the lights all shinin on me;
Other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long, strange trip its been.
Truckin, Im a goin home. whoa whoa baby, back where I belong,
Back home, sit down and patch my bones, and get back truckin on.
Hey now get back truckin home.

Never did and never will
Never did and never will
Were not gonna take you

We forsake you

Gonna rape you

Lets forget you better still.

Following you,

I get excitement at your feet.
I get excitement at your feet.
Right behind you,

I see the millions.

On you,
On you,
I see the glory.

From you,
From you,
I get opinions.

From you,
From you,
I get the story.
I get the story.

Valuable Game

[intro: ice-t]
This song is dedicated to my man tupac shakur, rest in peace!!
Notorious b.i.g., rest in peace!!
And all my other homies that have died
In the madness called street life
Rest in peace!!
[chorus]
Ima straight up g, lets not pretend
Dedicated to, all of my friends
On the east and the west coast
Gotta let this drama go
[ice-t]
Nineteen eighty six, deep in the mix
Me and my team out for cream and jewel-liks
The faster, the better, blood, leather, the baby sledge
Case hitters - me, Im the point man
Give less than a damn about anything, just let my hammer swing
Come up, give me my cut - what?
Girls dont mean nothin to me, dont push the button on me
Out for the twist, ya nastically nasty g
Basically makin me anti-social individual, too hype
Recognize the type?
Then a music called hip-hop came along and saved my life
I had a story to tell about my knowledge of hell
$2.50 for a book, listen and look, now lets do some math
A gun and a hand, plus an angry man, minus love
Equals and me, the skys blue and they rags
Toe-tags and body bags - yall feel me?
Is it too real g? brothers say drop some heat t
Absoultely, everythings goochie since we realized
This games the only one we got left
Hip-hops become the game of death
Some of yall busters out there tryin to waste up
It wouldve took some of us hustlers all this time to lace up
[chorus]
Ima straight up g, lets not pretend
Dedicated to, all of my friends
On the east and the west coast
Gotta let this drama go
[ice-t]
Ok, let me break it down, they got the one strike law
You go in, you reach the other two before you know
What happen to you - games over dude
On the next page, they got power in effect
While you two rednecks waitin to see which one of us
Kills the next brother next
Think about it too longll make you sick
Believe me the last thing they wanna see is us risin
Economically, astronomically it could happen homie - follow me
Hip-hops the black goal - mind and soul
Refined as we roll, another ghetto story is told
I stopped flippin kis in eighty three
They need a time machine to carcerate me
Im square as a pool table, twice as green, know what I mean?
Flippin from heat, the legal green, the hip-hop scene
Beef, the only beef I got is the steak
Im tryin to eat from the players elite
East, west, north, south, moon, star
Im gonna ball wherever the chips are
I hope yall players listen, aint out there hatin and dissin
Yall know the game is to be sold and not told
I should be takin a collection, this time Ill make an exception
Ive just been here for the start of this
I gotta come from the heart for this
[chorus]
Ima straight up g, lets not pretend
Dedicated to, all of my friends
On the east and the west coast
Gotta let this drama go
[ice-t]
Some nights I lay awake tryin to analyse
And anticipate the moves of the fakes
Wonder if the cancers in too deep - cant sleep
Tryin to diagnose the poison thats increased
Injected into a pure hustle born on city streak
Migranes fill my brain as I reach toward the realm of the insane
Wishin and prayin that another brother gets
To live the life that I got to play in
Tryin to represent to the fullest
I gotta come hard yall, no time to pull it
Yall fools think illin and tearin up
Hip-hop is the thing to do g?
Im paid I dont need rap no more fool I make a movie
Yall tryin to lose me
And to yall suckers with your afrobatic, player hatin tatics
Tryin to jump over the bree and plannin and hustlin
Ive been corporatin to this music over these years
Yall will fall victim to your own lies and the p.i.
Will continue to rise, over your eyes kid
This games immaculate, dramas irrelevant - stay sucker reppellin
Invent, incoporate, parlay, play
And I got no reason to lie to you
[chorus]
Ima straight up g, lets not pretend
Dedicated to, all of my friends
On the east and the west coast
Gotta let this drama go
Ima straight up g, lets not pretend
Dedicated to, all of my friends
On the east and the west coast
Gotta let this drama go

Parson Turell’s Legacy

OR, THE PRESIDENT'S OLD ARM-CHAIR

A MATHEMATICAL STORY

FACTS respecting an old arm-chair.
At Cambridge. Is kept in the College there.
Seems but little the worse for wear.
That 's remarkable when I say
It was old in President Holyoke's day.
(One of his boys, perhaps you know,
Died, _at one hundred_, years ago.)
He took lodgings for rain or shine
Under green bed-clothes in '69.

Know old Cambridge? Hope you do.--
Born there? Don't say so! I was, too.
(Born in a house with a gambrel-roof,--
Standing still, if you must have proof.--
'Gambrel?--Gambrel?'--Let me beg
You'll look at a horse's hinder leg,--
First great angle above the hoof,--
That 's the gambrel; hence gambrel-roof.)
Nicest place that ever was seen,--
Colleges red and Common green,
Sidewalks brownish with trees between.
Sweetest spot beneath the skies
When the canker-worms don't rise,--
When the dust, that sometimes flies
Into your mouth and ears and eyes,
In a quiet slumber lies,
_Not_ in the shape of umbaked pies
Such as barefoot children prize.

A kind of harbor it seems to be,
Facing the flow of a boundless sea.
Rows of gray old Tutors stand
Ranged like rocks above the sand;
Rolling beneath them, soft and green,
Breaks the tide of bright sixteen,--
One wave, two waves, three waves, four,--
Sliding up the sparkling floor.

Then it ebbs to flow no more,
Wandering off from shore to shore
With its freight of golden ore!
Pleasant place for boys to play;--
Better keep your girls away;
Hearts get rolled as pebbles do
Which countless fingering waves pursue,
And every classic beach is strown
With heart-shaped pebbles of blood-red stone.

But this is neither here nor there;
I'm talking about an old arm-chair.
You 've heard, no doubt, of PARSON TURELL?
Over at Medford he used to dwell;
Married one of the Mathers' folk;
Got with his wife a chair of oak,--
Funny old chair with seat like wedge,
Sharp behind and broad front edge,--
One of the oddest of human things,
Turned all over with knobs and rings,--
But heavy, and wide, and deep, and grand,--
Fit for the worthies of the land,--
Chief Justice Sewall a cause to try in,
Or Cotton Mather to sit--and lie--in.
Parson Turell bequeathed the same
To a certain student,--SMITH by name;
These were the terms, as we are told:
'Saide Smith saide Chaire to have and holde;
When he doth graduate, then to passe
To ye oldest Youth in ye Senior Classe.
On payment of '--(naming a certain sum)--
'By him to whom ye Chaire shall come;
He to ye oldest Senior next,
And soe forever,'--(thus runs the text,)--
'But one Crown lesse then he gave to claime,
That being his Debte for use of same.'
Smith transferred it to one of the BROWNS,
And took his money,--five silver crowns.
Brown delivered it up to MOORE,
Who paid, it is plain, not five, but four.
Moore made over the chair to LEE,
Who gave him crowns of silver three.
Lee conveyed it unto DREW,
And now the payment, of course, was two.
Drew gave up the chair to DUNN,--
All he got, as you see, was one.
Dunn released the chair to HALL,
And got by the bargain no crown at all.
And now it passed to a second BROWN,
Who took it and likewise claimed a crown.
When Brown conveyed it unto WARE,
Having had one crown, to make it fair,
He paid him two crowns to take the chair;
And Ware, being honest, (as all Wares be,)
He paid one POTTER, who took it, three.
Four got ROBINSON; five got Dix;
JOHNSON primus demanded six;
And so the sum kept gathering still
Till after the battle of Bunker's Hill.

When paper money became so cheap,
Folks would n't count it, but said 'a heap,'
A certain RICHARDS,--the books declare,--
(A. M. in '90? I've looked with care
Through the Triennial,--name not there,)--
This person, Richards, was offered then
Eightscore pounds, but would have ten;
Nine, I think, was the sum he took,--
Not quite certain,--but see the book.
By and by the wars were still,
But nothing had altered the Parson's will.
The old arm-chair was solid yet,
But saddled with such a monstrous debt!
Things grew quite too bad to bear,
Paying such sums to get rid of the chair
But dead men's fingers hold awful tight,
And there was the will in black and white,
Plain enough for a child to spell.
What should be done no man could tell,
For the chair was a kind of nightmare curse,
And every season but made it worse.

As a last resort, to clear the doubt,
They got old GOVERNOR HANCOCK out.
The Governor came with his Lighthorse Troop
And his mounted truckmen, all cock-a-hoop;
Halberds glittered and colors flew,
French horns whinnied and trumpets blew,
The yellow fifes whistled between their teeth,
And the bumble-bee bass-drums boomed beneath;
So he rode with all his band,
Till the President met him, cap in hand.
The Governor 'hefted' the crowns, and said,--
'A will is a will, and the Parson's dead.'
The Governor hefted the crowns. Said he,--
'There is your p'int. And here 's my fee.

'These are the terms you must fulfil,--
On such conditions I BREAK THE WILL!'
The Governor mentioned what these should be.
(Just wait a minute and then you 'll see.)
The President prayed. Then all was still,
And the Governor rose and BROKE THE WILL!
'About those conditions?' Well, now you go
And do as I tell you, and then you'll know.
Once a year, on Commencement day,
If you 'll only take the pains to stay,
You'll see the President in the CHAIR,
Likewise the Governor sitting there.
The President rises; both old and young
May hear his speech in a foreign tongue,
The meaning whereof, as lawyers swear,
Is this: Can I keep this old arm-chair?
And then his Excellency bows,
As much as to say that he allows.
The Vice-Gub. next is called by name;
He bows like t' other, which means the same.
And all the officers round 'em bow,
As much as to say that they allow.
And a lot of parchments about the chair
Are handed to witnesses then and there,
And then the lawyers hold it clear
That the chair is safe for another year.

God bless you, Gentlemen! Learn to give
Money to colleges while you live.
Don't be silly and think you'll try
To bother the colleges, when you die,
With codicil this, and codicil that,
That Knowledge may starve while Law grows fat;
For there never was pitcher that wouldn't spill,
And there's always a flaw in a donkey's will!

Sing a Song of Sixth Sense Mad Off Course - Murder Goose Rhymes

SING A SONG OF SIXTH SENSE MAD OFF COURSE - MURDER GOOSE RHYMES


Sing sin's song of sixth sense, fink senators debating
unthinkingly of budget cuts, sink U.S. credit rating,
'n lies' between the 'lines' are seen with House and Senate fighting
while unemployed face winter cold, cold feet drag, Jack frost biting.

Four and twenty blackbirds from sky to pie swift falling,
men saw in Arkansas, elsewhere, bare facts scare were appalling,
upon the cusp Aquarian new age shows signs eroding
with governments across the globe progressively imploding.

Inflation's shadow grows apace, as tax cuts cut employment,
while talibans' attacks are answered - pullback redeployment,
nonsense world whirled as unfurled is future fate's implosion,
as blatant contradictions blow - soon G.O.P. explosion
will open evidence afford beyond the Kingdom Denmark
that something rotten's rolling stone - no candyfloss in ballpark -
no moss may gather as the world turns topsy-turvy spinning
with Gulliver in Lapata's Academy loss winning.

Multinational eggplants yoking humankind
led merry maypole goal dance prehensile non-aligned,
when humpty-dumpty causeway was crossed by bossy bears
namby-pamby Daddy Dow went stumbling down the stairs.

Harmonics multimodal, soap-opera crescendo,
unwinds dingbatty attitude advisers apprehendo,
though silly season willy-nilly spills baked beans on breadline
undertaking baking powder chowder readers red line.

Fuddy-duddy Fannie Mae haphazardly foreclosing
found Freddie Mac unsound and flat-on-back no sense proposing,
as oil recoiled blarney trefoil enchantingly unreachable
jabberwocky Chaney stabbed chained 'scooter', unimpeachable

Against the grainy libby_ration over understanding
a robbing hood good riddance pittance should be countermanding,
chainletters better expedite supercallifragile_realistic
witty ditty's pitiful room-service pugilistic.

From ice-age meltdown through freefall see mercury arising
Hyperion's coach-and-four from rail failsafe caved in surprising
Lehman's brother's leman's mother usually delightful
as shaving foam extinguished fame - 'twas positively frightful

Alaskan Palin failing fathoms five beneath Alaska
controversy no stranger danger daughter seemed - all ask her
for automobile autograph - she graphically contriteful
big mac govern awe's GMen string slipped pip-pipped tight-lipped spiteful.

Bear stern in turn returned to base, struck out by bye-bye ball game,
bull rearguard hammered hard by will-o-wisp fly-by-night hall of flame,
when burning Bush 'I ran' sung, wrung error's terror wrists,
what jeepers-creepers asinine free-flight fight came to fists?

Obama banner hammerhead shark lark sparked helter-skelter
mumbo-jumbo crisis miss mismanagement tax shelter
unmanning mad off course of course, as politicians plucky
pulled rabbit hat ten trillion bucks in style happy-go-lucky.

As unemployment double jumped from model runway soaring,
September's solstice embers stored statistics bubble boring,
sixth sense implies that summer rise waits fall's discomfort zone,
we'll doubletake time's themes prepare scheme’s second-thought wishbone tone.

Warren Buffet’s Muffet missed sitting on her tuffet,
Jack Horner tried to corner plums, in future he must rough it,
King’s counting house, Queen’s parlor, are missing honey money
for global speculation is discovered on the runny.

Catch 22 then toodeloo imagination’s forté
fait accompli tee hee says hee seems fine for over forty,
polysyllabic rhetoric quicksilver conversation
linguistic highjinks jinx translates to teenage education.

Caterwauling cock-a-hoop, tuxedo troop atrocious
an omnibus adventure planned, canned headstrong band precocious,
rampaging bull in China store tries paging Beijing peeking
at soporiphic sibyls both back-pedalling, soft-speaking.

Objectively this ramble scrambles eggs, a-pulling legs begs
forgiveness for mixed metaphor before fast on its last legs,
eccentric verses self-contained, homemaiden's harmless frolic,
work just a while ere unjust trial turns tea total alcoholic.

Serendipity may witty city zen discover
if Serenghetti lioness miss taken is as lover,
but whether tether holds for bold or staggers hook-line-sinker
depends upon undress rehearsal’s universal thinker.

So here godsend, as round the bend, we wend way, weigh wey, custard,
with four-and-twenty blackbird herd, unheard of stirred with mustard,
king-kong's in klong, all-clear appears, jeers end, cheers send solution,
call for clear rhyme not phantom mime, re_versing convolution.

SING A SONG OF SIXPENCE

Sing a song of sixpence a pocket full of rye,
Four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie.
When the pie was opened the birds began to sing,
Oh wasn't that a dainty dish to set before the king?
The king was in his counting house counting out his money,
The queen was in the parlour eating bread and honey
The maid was in the garden hanging out the clothes,
When down came a blackbird and pecked off her nose!

VIVE LA BAGATELLE

Sing a song of foolishness, laughing stocks and cranks!
The more there are the merrier; come join the ranks!
Life is dry and stupid; whoop her up a bit!
Donkeys live in clover; bray and throw a fit!

Take yourself in earnest, never stop to think,
Strut and swagger boldly, dress in red and pink;
Prate of stuff and nonsense, get yourself abused;
Some one's got to play the fool to keep the crowd amused!

Bully for the idiot! Bully for the guy!
You could be a prig yourself, if you would only try!
Altruistic asses keep the fun alive;
Clowns are growing scarcer; hurry and arrive!

I seen a crazy critic a-writin' of a screed;
'Tendencies' and 'Unities' - Maeterlinck indeed!
He wore a paper collar, and his tie was up behind;
If that's the test of Culture, then I'm glad I'm not refined!

Let me laugh at you, then you can laugh at me;
Then we'll josh together everything we see;
Every one's a nincompoop to another's view;
Laughter makes the sun shine! Roop-de-doodle-doo!

Sing a song of spillage
A tanker's fouled the shore;

Some slime was sucked for sure,
But what remained no aid fund

SING A SONG OF JINGO

Sing a song of Jingo
(Chorus, fife and drum) .
Twenty thousand Arabs
Sent to kingdom come.
When the trouble’s over
And glory’s cup is full,
There’ll be a pretty butcher’s bill
To lay before John Bull.

Bondholders in the City
Are passing sleepless nights,
The Arabs in the Soudan
Are fighting for their rights.
The whole affair’s a muddle
That daily thicker grows,
Why we e’er went into it
Is what nobody knows.

AN ODE TO ALFRED AUSTEN

I sing a song of sixpence, and of rye
A pocketful – recalling, sad to state,
The niggardly emoluments which I
Receive as Laureate:

Also I sing of blackbirds – in the mart
At four-a-penniy. Thus, in other words,
The sixpence which I mentioned at the start
Puchased two dozen birds.

So four-and-twenty birds were deftly hid –
Or shall we say, were skilfully concealed? –
Within the pie-dish. When they raised the lid
What melody forth pealed:

Now I like four-and-twenty blackbirds sing,
With all their sweetness, all their rapture keen;
And isn’t this a pretty little thing
To set before the Queen?

The money-counting monarch – morbid man; -
His wife, who robbed the little busy bees,
I disregard. In fact a poet can
But pity folks like these.

The maid was in the garden. Happy maid!
Her choice entitles her to rank above
Master and Mistress. Gladly she surveyed
The Garden that I love!

- Where grow my daffodils, anemones,
Tulips, auriculas, chrysanthemums,
Cabbages, asparagus, sweet peas,
With apples, pears, and plums. –

(That’s a parenthesis. The very name
Of ‘garden’ really carries one astray :)
But suddenly a feathered ruffian came
And stole her nose away.

Eight stanzas finished; So my Court costume
I lay aside: the Laureate, I suppose,
Has done his part; the man may now resume
His journalistic prose.

SING A SONG OF DYNAMITE


Sing a song of dynamite –
What a mighty scare:
A London railway-station
In pieces in the air.
Bags and pistols, clockwork,
Nasty cakes of brown –
Weren’t they dainty dishes
To find about our town?

Government and railway folks
Didn’t think it funny;
They to find the plotters
Offered lots of money.
Perhaps across the sea they’ve gone,
In other suits of clothes;
Perhaps they’re living quietly
Right under London’s Nose.
