Athletes who take to the classroom naturally or are encouraged to focus on grades should be able to do well in the classroom. I believe the reason you go to college is to get your degree. It's not a minor league or an audition for the pros.

I Just Wanted to Get Your Opinion

What do you think about the Pope?
And the...
Influence of the church,
These
Days...?

HEY! ?
I just wanted to get your opinion.
I did not mean to chase you away.
Oh well.

Geeessshhh...
Is it 'that' bad?
I heard about the exorcisms.
But my goodness!
Impeaching a Pope?
What is going on inside that place?

(Get Your Kicks On) Route 66

If you ever plan to motor west
Travel my way, take the highway that's the best
A-get your kicks on Route sixty-six
It winds from Chicago to LA
More than two thousand miles all the way
Get your kicks on Route sixty-six
Now you go through Saint Looey
Joplin, Missouri
And Oklahoma City looks mi-ighty pretty
You'll see Amarillo
Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona
Don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernandino
Won't you get hip to this timely tip
When you make that California trip
A-get your kicks on Route sixty-six
Won't you get hip to this ti-imely tip
When you make a-that California trip
A-get your kicks on Route sixty-six
A-get your kicks on Route sixty-six
Get your kicks on Route sixty-six

Who Knows Where The Poem Begins?

WHO KNOWS WHERE THE POEM BEGINS/

Who knows where the poem begins
And where the inner singing starts?
Who knows when the words are lost inside
And can never be what they really mean?
The questions of our lives we live with
Are greater than the answers we can give
Time will not tell us everything
But only deepen the mysteries
We will take to the grave with us.

Who Was Seeking The Light?

Your insistence to become
something, to overstay existence
was not fair.

On a row of white shrouds –
holding innocent beings,
death was walking barefoot, crying.

Between farewell and stupidity,
staccato, shooting questions to life.
What was the need for this achievement?

Fear was turning you against me,
to abandon the peace. Truth cannot be repeated
again and again. It becomes a lie.

No body knows how to bury
the deception. It is still dark.
Who was seeking the light?

Love Sonnet 151 I Knew Not Why Roses Take To The Rain

I knew not why roses take to the rain,
Nor why, with too much, they oft wilt then die,
So with this heart, as regards rain and pain,
The same as when I cried, not knowing why;
But why when noonday comes, stars could not shine,
And why do moonshine melts hearts in its glow,
The same as when, one willing night was mine,
Whereby moments rushed, yet Time did not flow;
But why God added one pain to His work,
When without which, Paradise seemed not well,
And which turn is best, when road breaks in fork,
How will I know which gives Heaven or Hell;
...Ah, riddles of the heart, crying out loud,
...For answers to rain, without hint of cloud.

The Core To Your Failures

Your need to feel you must compete with me,
s the core to your failures.
And the basis for your grief.
To deceive does not with benefit receive.

Everything done you do...
And regardless with who,
You want to see yourself portrayed as the winner.
Of what?

And...
Wishing defeat of those who support and feed you,
Will eventually open your eyes.
Since mine have been wide open,
With hopes one day you will see yourself...
For the fool you have been to 'think' there is something,
You will win to have others praise your efforts.
There is not a back left,
You can climb to rise high on it!

No mind intentionally disconnected,
Can remain unaffected.

Who Knows Where the Time Goes

Across the evening sky, all the birds are leaving
But how can they know its time for them to go?
Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
I have no thought of time
For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?
Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving
Ah, but then you know its time for them to go
But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time
For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?
And I am not alone while my love is near me
I know it will be so until its time to go
So come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again
I have no fear of time
For who knows how my love grows?
And who knows where the time goes?

Who Knows Where The Time Goes

(1966) sandy denny
Across the evening sky, all the birds are leaving
But how can they know its time for them to go?
Before the winter fire, I will still be dreaming
I have no thought of time
For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?
Sad, deserted shore, your fickle friends are leaving
Ah, but then you know its time for them to go
But I will still be here, I have no thought of leaving
I do not count the time
For who knows where the time goes?
Who knows where the time goes?
And I am not alone while my love is near me
I know it will be so until its time to go
So come the storms of winter and then the birds in spring again
I have no fear of time
For who knows how my love grows?
And who knows where the time goes?

Who Let In The Rain

Things like this
can always take a little time
I always thought
we'd be together down the line
we start to fight
and can't get over what was said
'cause you see black and white
and I see red

And I wonder who let in the rain
you know without you
I'm not the same
when love gets strong
people get weak
sometimes they lose control
and wind up in too deep
they fall like rain
who let in the rain

I make the bed and cover
where you used to sleep
I'm smoothing over promises
made in these sheets
I envy lovers passing by
out on the street
'cause what they have
I couldn't keep

And I wonder who let in the rain
you know without you
I'm not the same
when love gets strong
people get weak
sometimes they lose control
and wind up in too deep
they fall like rain
who let in the rain.

Get Your Hair Cut!

The perfect haircut suits you best,
Short back and sides, my lad!
So take your cash and go invest
In what makes most folks glad.
It's up to you to make the choice,
I gave you good advice...
So why look like the other boys,
When you could look quite nice?

I've seen you in the smartest suit
Let down by scruffy hair...
That's hardly what I'd call astute,
So almost debonair...
You used to be the one to watch,
The guy who had it all...
So why not take it up a notch?
Good-looking, standing tall.

Please get your hair cut soon as poss!
Don't dilly-dally, friend!
My word, it would impress the boss,
On that you can depend!
Keep up the good work that you do,
Eyes twinkling day by day!
Sit down, relax, snip-snip, you're through...
Thank God for that! Oi, vey!

Who Will Stop The Rain?

This problem is insoluble
The answers seem impossible
The logic ceases to exist
Emotion is the beat we miss
I stand on a world
Where dreams, realities, existence are the same
We take from the mothers skin
But the world is not to blame

Who tells the wind which way to blow?
I wonder who will stop the rain
The rocks that hold the secrets, they dont know
So who can stop the rain?
Weve lost the path for all we know
Now tell me when will it start again?
And as the old man lifts his hands
Please can you stop the rain?
Stars fall far away
Like they never did before
A new moon shining
Like it never will again

Desert white cloud
Spirits they sing
Rain falls from the big sky
Onto broken wing
There is no sense in turning back
To wash the debris from the track
World without fears without rhyme
We fought for peace within our time

You Stand On The Blind Side Of Your Fence

Let's clear the air on this immediately.
I was not born yesterday.
Or the day before.
Sometimes there is no need,
For you to utter a single word.
Whatever it is coming out of your mouth,
I've already heard before.
And on that I am willing to bet.

But for you to accuse me of not understanding?
You are wrong.
And,
You stand on the blind side of your fence.
Every emotional plot, scheme and weapon,
You have had to feel to get your point across...
I was the one you tested.
Remember?

And 'if' I saved the tears you've cried,
We'd both be standing in a six foot pool...
Full of your wet and yet to drain insecurities.

So do not tell me,
I have been unempathetic or impatient.

Now...
If you had asked me if you get on my nerves?
That answer would be YES!

'But...
I didn't ask you that.'

You didn't have to!
That answer would be YES!
Use it for future reference.

You Always Get Your Way

Well then
I guess thats it then
As you trip on my rug on your way out the door
To your new found freedom
You always get your way
Happy
We cant be happy
For Ive learned
That reality is only opinion
We disagreed, dear
Some opinions cant persuade
Crazy
My thinkin was hazy
Placin you
In the kitchen with apron and skillet preparing me dinner
But to serves not your fortay
Lonely
I bet I was only
Lookin in your direction for some small affection
But you made me love you
Cuz you always get your way
Always always
Isnt it boring?
Day after day
After day
After day
After day
Your suspicion
And all my ambition
Creates nothing less than an incredible mess
So I guess good luck darlin
Is all I have to say
Kill me
You said youd kill me
Baby those are just words
That in anger
You say but I surely would hate it
If you ever got your way
And you always get your way
You always get your way

Baby Get Your Head Screwed On

Well if youre feelin low, take it slow
Baby get your head screwed on
I know hes left, but dont be depressed
Baby let your {favorite? } daddy see you through
Oh baby youll be out of your mind,
Baby youll be out of your mind,
Baby youll be out of your mind.
You know youre nice, youre sugar and spice
And I know what youre going through
And if youre hot hot, and even if youre not
Baby let your {favorite? } daddy see you through
Oh baby youll be out of your mind,
Baby youll be out of your mind,

You were so neat, ever so sweet,
And overnight youve seemed to change
Since you kissed your psychiatrist
Baby, youve never been the same.
Well if youre feelin low, take it slow
Baby get your head screwed on
I know hes left, but dont be depressed
Baby let your favorite daddy see you through
Oh baby youll be out of your mind,
Baby youll be out of your mind,
Baby youll be out of your mind.

Get Your Spirit Right

Practice.
Active,
Prayer...
Everyday,
You can!

Be active in the practice,
Of prayer...
Everyday.
You can!

Care less about the he said,
Or she said...
Conflicting pickers of fights.
They'll keep you awake with sleepless nights.

Be true to your practice,
In active...
Prayer,
Everyday.
You can!

Erratic tactics,
Keep captive...
With distractions,
To minimize your pride.

Don't worry about their appetites...
For doing things the wrong way.
You stay on the side of what's right,
Now!

Practice.
Active,
Prayer...
Everyday,
You can!

Be active in the practice,
With swift actions of your prayers...
Everyday.
You can!

Get your spirit right!
Let backbiters do what they do.
You can choose not to approve!

Just keep your practice,
Active...
In prayer,
Everyday.
You can!

Don't worry about their appetites...
For doing things the wrong way.
You stay on the side of what's right,
Now!

Practice.
Active,
Prayer...
Everyday,
You can!

Who Peeps On The Peeper?

Who peeps on the peeper?
God.
Who else keeps the peeper peeking,
But God.
Who doesn't get a wink of sleep...
As those who seek to take a peek.
Believing what is done they do,
Is out of sight.
And out of God's reach.
Thinking lessons learned...
God does not teach.

Get Your Hands Off Me

1st verse:
365 you call me all the time
Im picking up my line, u say Im looking fine
Talking bout how you miss and love me
How you and me were always meant to be
Then why did you cheat on me so gradually
I dont understand how you did this to me
Asking me if I want you back
I dont really know gotta think bout that
Build_up:
Its hard cuz I lost the trust for us
Why did you lust?
Its hard cuz I lost the trust for us
I wont cry and fuss
Hook:
All you ever do is lie to creep on me
So dont try to step to me
Playa get your hands off me
Even though I love you so I cant
See you next to me so dont
Try to mess with me
Playa get your hands off me
2nd verse:
247 Im thinking about you
My heart cant take it Im really missing you
Now why did you go and play the shady fool
You have no reason and I have no clue
Deep down in side Im still in love with you
But you just had to treat me so cruel
Baby boy I think I want you back
I dont really know gotta think about that
(build-up)(hook)
Breakdown:
(2x) you have to let her go if you wanna get back with me
Cuz Im not down with s.o.m.e. after three
(hook)

Who Knows What The Future Will Bring

Tis said of every individual that they can shape their own destiny
Though others will tell you quite differently and with such thinking would not agree
Who knows what will happen tomorrow who knows what your future will bring
Though at present you feel a bit ordinary and none other your praises do sing.

You may try to shape your own destiny without taking circumstance into account
And you may have great plans for the future and to little that too can amount
To if destiny does not point in that direction your destiny and circumstance
Does play a huge part in your future our gift of life came about by chance.

Who knows what will happen tomorrow you may feel sad and tearful today
Tonight you may win first division tattslotto and you can celebrate in a big way
Or tomorrow for you than today little different with your same set of worries and woes
As Shaw once said 'Life's Not Meant To Be Easy' but such is life one must suppose.

Who knows what the future will bring to you despite what some say it does seem to me
That we cannot look into the future such things are beyond us to see
Those things known as circumstance and destiny a huge part in our lives do play
And these two can make us or break us for in our future they have a big say.

Get Your Biscuits In The Oven & Your Buns In The Bed

(kinky friedman)
You uppity women I dont understand
Why you gotta go and try to act like a man,
But before you make your weekly visit to the shrink
Youd better occupy the kitchen, liberate the sink.
Get your biscuits in the oven and your buns in the bed
Thats what I to my baby said,
Womens liberation is a-going to your head,
Get your biscuits in the oven and your buns in the bed.
Early every morning youre out on the street
Passing out pamphlets to everyone you meet.
You gave up your maiden form for lent
And now the front of your dress has an air scoop vent.
Every single brakeman thats ever come along
Had a little woman always tellin him that hes wrong.
Eve said to adam, heres an apple you horse
And delilah defoliated samsons moss.
Get your biscuits in the oven and your buns in the bed
Thats what I to my baby said,
Womens liberation is a-going to your head,
Get your biscuits in the oven and your buns in the bed.
Mean-hearted harpies are breaking all the laws
Tearing up their girdles and a-burning up their bras,
Now the air is dirty and the sex is clean
And your coffee makes my hair turn green.
So damn emancipated in your mind and your body,
Gonna have to cancel all your lessons in karate.
If you cant love a male chauvinist
Youd better cross me off your shopping list.
Get your biscuits in the oven and your buns in the bed
Thats what I to my baby said,
Womens liberation is a-going to your head,
Get your biscuits in the oven and your buns in the bed.
