"Ride the snake, ride the snake
To the lake, the ancient lake, baby
The snake is long, seven miles
Ride the snake...he's old, and his skin is cold

The west is the best
The west is the best
Get here, and we'll do the rest

The blue bus is callin' us
The blue bus is callin' us
Driver, where you taken' us

The killer awoke before dawn, he put his boots on
He took a face from the ancient gallery
And he walked on down the hall"        (The Doors)

"She moved in down the hall
So I paid her a call
She flashed a smile
I stayed awhile

I've always lived alone
Just quiet nights at home
But Lord knows when
They'll come again

Do do do
Shimmering endlessly
Oh, lady
Illuminating me
Illuminating me

You dance and you spin
Queen of harlequins
You make me smile
All through the night
Whirling and twirling
You love to excite

I moved in down the hall
No crying, no crying at all
I don't intend to let it in

Now I know I've been well bred
So I must've been misled
Until I'm found
I'm safe and sound

Do do do do
Shimmering endlessly
Oh, lady
Illuminating me
Illuminating me

You dance and you spin
Queen of harlequins
You make me smile
All through the night
Over and over
(Over and over)
You love to excite

Whirling and twirling
(Whirling and twirling)
All through the night
Over and over
(And over and over)
Yeah, baby
You love to excite

Oh, oh, oh, baby
Down the hall
Do do do do...
Down the hall
Do do do do...
Down the hall
Do do do do..."   (The Four Seasons)

They say that Richard Cory owns one half of this whole town,
With political connections to spread his wealth around.
Born into society, a banker's only child,
He had everything a man could want: power, grace, and style.

But I work in his factory
And I curse the life I'm living
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be
Richard Cory.

The papers print his picture almost everywhere he goes:
Richard Cory at the opera,

Richard Cory at a show.
And the rumor of his parties and the orgies on his yacht!
Oh, he surely must be happy with everything he's got.
But I work in his factory
And I curse the life I'm living
And I curse my poverty
And I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be,
Oh, I wish that I could be
Richard Cory.

He freely gave to charity, he had the common touch,
And they were grateful for his patronage and thanked him very much,
So my mind was filled with wonder when the evening headlines read:
"Richard Cory went home last night and put a bullet through his head."

Has anybody here seen my old friend Abraham?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
You know, I just looked around and he's gone.

Anybody here seen my old friend John?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
I just looked around and he's gone.

Anybody here seen my old friend Martin?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
He freed a lot of people,
But it seems the good they die young.
I just looked 'round and he's gone.

Didn't you love the things that they stood for?
Didn't they try to find some good for you and me?
And we'll be free
Some day soon, and it's a-gonna be one day ...

Anybody here seen my old friend Bobby?
Can you tell me where he's gone?
I thought I saw him walk up over the hill,
With Abraham, Martin and John.

"A long long time ago
I can still remember how
That music used to make me smile
And I knew if I had my chance
That I could make those people dance
And maybe they'd be happy for a while
But February made me shiver
With every paper I'd deliver
Bad news on the doorstep
I couldn't take one more step
I can't remember if I cried
When I read about his widowed bride
But something touched me deep inside
  The day the music died.......                  (Don McLean)

"Let us be lovers we'll marry our fortunes together"
"I've got some real estate here in my bag"
So we bought a pack of cigarettes and Mrs. Wagner pies
And we walked off to look for America

"Kathy," I said as we boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburgh
"Michigan seems like a dream to me now"
It took me four days to hitchhike from Saginaw
I've gone to look for America 

Laughing on the bus
Playing games with the faces
She said the man in the gabardine suit was a spy
I said "Be careful his bowtie is really a camera"

"Toss me a cigarette, I think there's one in my raincoat"
"We smoked the last one an hour ago"
So I looked at the scenery, she read her magazine
And the moon rose over an open field

"Kathy, I'm lost," I said, though I knew she was sleeping
I'm empty and aching and I don't know why
Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike
They've all gone to look for America
All gone to look for America
All gone to look for America"       (Simon and Garfunkel)

She walked across the floor, the crowd called out for more
Flash boots froze their expressions in the limousine
Though I've been 'lone, I know I can subsist
Eh, it give me comfort just to realize that she exists

Oh, Miss America, look on me
I'm not the most handsome one you'll ever see
Oh Miss America, I love you
Though we may never meet my name's America
My name's America too, my name's America too

She be putting lullabies on your lips
Oh, you saw enough to launch a thousand ships
You kicked her off to put your hands upon your hips
Let lonely take her to the places where the honey drips, yeah

Oh, Miss America, look on me
I'm not the most handsome one you'll ever see
Oh Miss America, I love you
Though we may never meet my name's America
My name's America too, my name's America too

**The day the music died**
So


Bye, bye Miss American Pie
Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry
Them good ole boys were drinking whiskey in Rye
Singin' this'll be the day that I die
This'll be the day that I die"

(Don McLean)

"A long time ago, yeah
Before you was born dude
When I was still single
And life was great
I held this job as a traveling salesman
That kept me moving from state to state

Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
State of Louisiana
Wondering where a city boy could go
To get a little conversation
Drink a little red wine
Catch a little bit of those Cajun girls
Dancing to Zydeco

Along come a young girl
She's pretty as a prayerbook
Sweet as an apple on Christmas day
I said good gracious can this be my luck
If that's my prayerbook
Lord let us pray"             (Paul Simon)
