Drinking and Lyrics

When you are drinking many lyrics sound deep and meaningful. For example a little ditty from Mr. Paul Simon:

People talking without speaking,

People hearing without listening,

People writing songs that voices never share,

and no one dare disturb the Sound of Silence.

– – – Paul Simon, “Sounds of Silence”

But it pails when compared with the master: John Cooper Clarke as previously reported:

Like a Night Club in the morning

You’re the bitter end

Like a recently disinfected shit-house

You’re clean round the bend

Or maybe it is the drink talking? I’m still getting over how Bob Dylan shagged one of his best friends girl, said “he comforted here!”, and got away with it!
