I really love this song:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vsYN-RZeD_A


by Joni Mitchell
Carey

The wind is in from africa
Last night I couldnt sleep
Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here carey
But its really not my home
My fingernails are filthy, I got beach tar on my feet
And I miss my clean white linen and my fancy french cologne

Oh carey get out your cane
And Ill put on some silver
Oh youre a mean old daddy, but I like you fine

Come on down to the mermaid cafe and I will buy you a bottle of wine
And well laugh and toast to nothing and smash our empty glasses down
Lets have a round for these freaks and these soldiers
A round for these friends of mine
Lets have another round for the bright red devil
Who keeps me in this tourist town

Come on, carey, get out your cane
Ill put on some silver
Oh youre a mean old daddy, but I like you

Maybe Ill go to amsterdam
Or maybe Ill go to rome
And rent me a grand piano and put some flowers round my room
But lets not talk about fare-thee-welis now
The night is a starry dome.
And theyre playin that scratchy rock and roll
Beneath the matalla moon

Come on, carey, get out your cane
And Ill put on some silver
Youre a mean old daddy, but I like you

The wind is in from africa
Last night I couldnt sleep
Oh, you know it sure is hard to leave here
But, its really not my home
Maybe its been too long a time
Since I was scramblin down in the street
Now they got me used to that clean white linen
And that fancy french cologne

Oh carey, get out your cane
Ill put on my finest silver
Well go to the mermaid cafe
Have fun tonight
I said, oh, youre a mean old daddy, but youre out of sight

She's got a lot of snippets and bits.
I find myself sometimes humming her songs ...

Three waitresses all wearing
Black diamond earrings
Talking about zombies
and Singapore slings

... love the imagery.

:grin:
