A Tribute To Big Star

Thirteen

[rev. Apr. 21, 2015]

Won't you let me walk you home from school
Won't you let me meet you at the pool

Maybe Friday I can
Get tickets for the dance
And I'll take you

Won't you tell your dad, "Get off my back"
Tell him what we said 'bout "Paint It Black"

Rock and Roll is here to stay
Come inside where it's okay
And I'll shake you

Won't you tell me what you're thinking of
Would you be an outlaw for my love

If it's so, well let me know
If it's no, then I can go
I won't make you

 

Jeremy Flies Vol 2: A Tribute To Nick Drake

Fly

[added Dec. 18, 2005]

Please give me [a] second grace
Please give me [a] second face
I've fallen far down
The first time around
I just sit on the ground in your way

Now if it's time for recompense for what's done
Come, come sit down on the fence in the sun
And the clouds will roll by
And we'll never deny
It's really too hard for the fly

Please tell me your second name
Please play me your second game
I've fallen so far
For the people you are
I just need your star for a day

So come, come ride in my my street-car by the bay
For now I must know how fine you are in your way
And the sea sure will sigh
Then she won't need to cry
For it's really too hard for the fly

 

Remote Memory: A Tribute To Elliott Smith

Everything Means Nothing To Me

[added April 23, 2006]

Someone found the future as a statue in a fountain
At attention looking backward in a bowl of water
Wishes with a blue songbird on his shoulder
Who keeps singing over everything
Everything means nothing to me
Everything means nothing to me
Everything means nothing to me

I picked up the song and found the picture in the paper
The reflection in the water shouted are you men
Still trying to salute people from a time
When he was everything he's supposed to be
Everything means nothing to me
Everything means nothing to me
Everything means nothing to me
Everything means nothing to me
