The Little Shop + + + Here's the little shop that I've been visiting for quite some years now and where I will hear the old woman say for the umptieth time now, for the umptieth time for the tenthousand and umptieth time what she thinks about the weather she THINKS about the weather... And so, I'll admit it is raining but I am not complaining it's a drizzle-rain, she'll say more precisely and hey I'll agree, indeed it looks like a drizzle-rain to me and she'll agree, and: is this all I need? Well yes, is this all I need? this IS all I need yes mam, indeed, because... because I would not dare not for all the money in the world to go against the sounds stemming from her mouth this stalactite house with the large hanging teeth whose slow but steady growth I have been a witness of so closely so almost overdosely all these heartbreaking, newspaper taking, sharp-tongue shaking breathtaking, aching, godforsaking years of unease... oh please! So yes, I'll agree, it's a drizzle-rain indeed yes I'll agree, for the tenthousand and umptieth time now I ask how much is it how much is it, I ask but oh, I already know I already know too much it is somehow slightly simply all too much yeah, actually… actually it's just too much really, just too much… really!
Madsummer Midness George and Martha went on a spree midsummer madness, the judge said because their cosy world collapsed they had to make a living on welfare They had to give up their jobs when they both became ill, and once they were home they would run . . . into bill after bill after bill after bill — get out of the way, Bill They booked the Hilton for 15 days a double-room with tv, fridge, and breakfast they booked the Savoy for 15 days a double-room with TV, fridge, and breakfast they loved, lived, laughed... and left after a fortnight She opened an account at Harrod’s he was hooked on Rent-A Cars they moved to the Marriot, the Holiday Inn, the Cumberland, and lived like stars For ten long weeks they lived like stars Each was sentenced to nine months and not a month too soon: winter is about to come next summer starts in June: Midsummer madness, midsummer madness they go all the way, Bill midsummer madness, midsummer madness hey, get out of the way, Bill
The Bus Is Late Again The bus is late I'm not surprised the rain is wet and supersized the night is grey I know the score the rose is red just like before The wind is cold the queue is slow I'm still patient but go go go the door is jammed my coat is stuck the driver's deaf well, just my luck The light is green the light is red and there is o… oh no, too bad the car's been hit I'm black and blue the rose, it snapped I think of you I'm in the bus it's full of doubt the road is where the light's gone out the bus is late and off you went — the bus is late? and off you went? again I see no happy end
Sleepy Tigers Sleepy tigers on the loose see them stroll down the avenues Pay attention they've got claws you're not protected by their laws Did I tell you they've got teeth before they're hungry you better leave When they wake up just beware cos about your well-being they don't care The most dangerous they wear suits it's their business to be rude And when they smile watch your pocket whatever's yours they will fuck it they will fuck it... If you see Kay tell it like it is if you see Kay, tell her: it's like this if you see Kay…

Maybe Maybe maybe you didn't notice maybe you didn't pay attention maybe your mind were somewhere else at some place which I maybe should not mention but maybe you — weren't even there — and maybe you — were not aware — or maybe — maybe maybe maybe, maybe maybe maybe you simply do not care But hey that's alright… Because ... we love you more than rainbows and beautiful blue skies we love you more than buttercups and wings of butterflies we love you more than milk and honey, and waves upon the sea we love you more than possibly, perhaps and maybe maybe we love you more than the sun and moon and all the stars above we love you more than more-than-enough, and maybe ... thát should be enough Well hey that's alright... But IF you are there and IF you ARE aware and IF you, IF you, IF you and STILL you do not care ... then hey that's alright hey that's alright, because ... We love you more than saying it twice we love you more than three blind mice we love you more than your forty-fives we love you more than a butcher's knife more than a walk in the pouring rain more than money down the drain we love you more than my left brain we love you more than going insane we love you more than twisted truths we love you more than wasted youths we love you more than don't-ask-why we love you more than one more lie more than a chat with next door's creep or one more film with Meryl Streep we love you more than beep beep beep we love you more, when you're buried six - feet - deep And hey that's alright...
Song 03:02
Song (Ginsberg) The weight of the world / is love. Under the burden / of solitude, under the burden / of dissatisfaction the weight, / the weight we carry / is love. Who can deny? / in dreams / it touches / the body, in thought / constructs / a miracle, in imagination / anguishes / till born / in human — looks out of the heart / burning with purity — for the burden of life / is love, but we carry the weight / wearily, and so must rest / in the arms of love / at last, must rest in the arms / of love. No rest / without love no sleep / without dreams / of love — be mad or chill / obsessed with angels / or machines, the final wish is love — cannot be bitter, / cannot deny, cannot withhold, / if denied: the weight is too heavy — must give / for no return as thought / is given / in solitude in all the excellence / of its excess. The warm bodies / shine together / in the darkness, the hand moves / to the center of the flesh, the skin trembles / in happiness and the soul comes / joyful to the eye — yes, yes, / that's what / I wanted, / I always wanted, to return / to the body / where I was born.
