Quotes about melinda

Come Away Melinda

Daddy, daddy, come and look
See what I have found
A little ways away from here
While digging in the ground
Come away melinda
Come in and close the door
Its nothing, just a picture-book
They had before the war
Daddy, daddy, come and see
Daddy, come and look
Why, theres four or five
Little melinda girls
Inside my picture book
Come away melinda
Come in and close the door
There were lots of little girls like you
Before they had the war
Oh daddy, daddy, come and see
Daddy, hurry do
Why, theres someone

Come Away Melinda

Daddy daddy, come and look, (come and) see what I have found
A little ways away from here, while digging in the ground
Come away melinda, come in and close the door
That things just a picture book they had before the war.
Daddy daddy, come and see, daddy, hurry, do!
(why) theres someone in a (party/pretty) dress and shes all grown up just like you
(wont you tell me why)
Come away melinda, come in and close the door
(that) someone is your mommy, you had before the war.
Daddy daddy tell me (please tell me) if you can
Why things cant be the way they were before this war began?
Come away melinda, come in and close the door
The answer lies in yesterday, before they had the war...
(instrumental)

Melinda Mae

Have you heard of tiny Melinda Mae,
Who ate a monstrous whale?
She thought she could,
She said she would,
So she started in right at the tail.

And everyone said,'You're much too small,'
But that didn't bother Melinda at all,
She took little bites and she shewed very slow,
Just like a little girl should...

...and eighty-nine years later she ate that whale
Because she said she would!!!

Good, Melinda

the dew of the Sunday night is here and
sticking to Melinda Good’s shoes.

she is trekking across the grassy field
toward the train track to end her life.

in high school, just last year, the
SAT, ACT, Scantrons—they all had

Good, Melinda on them; a kind of
irony to the girl who’s

standing in front of a speeding
Norfolk-Southern freight train with

her arms out to her sides and
her head tilted back; eyes open.


(1986-2006)

Sweet Melinda

This song was first released on the john denver album. it is the only album it has been released on.
Pulled out of linden, texas
Two days and nights ago
Ive been livin on pills and burgies
Till the whites of my eyes dont show
Southbound headlights are makin me blind
Im too damn tired to blink
My toes are numb and my brains gone numb
And I can just barely think
Sweet melinda, my wife
The lonesome moan of this eighteen wheeler
Cuts through me like a knife
cept for you, sweet melinda, my wife
I been ridin on empty
Most all of my life
Two more hours of daylight
Its startin to rain again
A sign up ahead says welcome to paradise
Population ten
Well me and this truck and that old white line

The Four Seasons : Autumn

Crown'd with the sickle and the wheaten sheaf,
While Autumn, nodding o'er the yellow plain,
Comes jovial on; the Doric reed once more,
Well pleased, I tune. Whate'er the wintry frost
Nitrous prepared; the various blossom'd Spring
Put in white promise forth; and Summer-suns
Concocted strong, rush boundless now to view,
Full, perfect all, and swell my glorious theme.
Onslow! the Muse, ambitious of thy name,
To grace, inspire, and dignify her song,
Would from the public voice thy gentle ear
A while engage. Thy noble cares she knows,
The patriot virtues that distend thy thought,
Spread on thy front, and in thy bosom glow;
While listening senates hang upon thy tongue,
Devolving through the maze of eloquence
A roll of periods, sweeter than her song.
But she too pants for public virtue, she,
Though weak of power, yet strong in ardent will,
Whene'er her country rushes on her heart,
