    Lyrics:
    I am just a poor boy
    Though my story's seldom told
    I have squandered my resistance
    For a pocket full of mumbles, such are promises
    All lies and jests
    Still a man hears what he wants to hear
    And disregards the rest
    When I left my home and my family
    I was no more than a boy
    In the company of strangers
    In the quiet of the railway station
    Running scared,
    Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
    Where the ragged people go
    Looking for the places
    Only they would know
    Lie la lie, lie la la la lie lie
    Lie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lie

    Lyrics:

    A man walks down the street
    He says why am I soft in the middle now
    Why am I soft in the middle
    The rest of my life is so hard
    I need a photo-opportunity
    I want a shot at redemption
    Don't want to end up a cartoon
    In a cartoon graveyard
    Bonedigger Bonedigger
    Dogs in the moonlight
    Far away my well-lit door
    Mr. Beerbelly Beerbelly
    Get these mutts away from me
    You know I don't find this stuff amusing anymore

    If you'll be my bodyguard
    I can be your long lost pal
    I can call you Betty
    And Betty when you call me
    You can call me Al

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I've come to talk with you again
    Because a vision softly creeping
    Left its seeds while I was sleeping
    And the vision that was planted in my brain
    Still remains
    Within the sound of silence

    Lyrics:

    I'm accustomed to a smooth ride
    Or maybe I'm a dog who's lost its bite
    I don't expect to be treated like a fool no more
    I don't expect to sleep through the night
    Some people say a lie's a lie's a lie
    But I say why
    Why deny the obvious child?
    Why deny the obvious child?

    And in remembering a road sign
    I am remembering a girl when I was young
    And we said These songs are true
    These days are ours
    These tears are free
    And hey
    The cross is in the ballpark
    The cross is in the ballpark

    We had a lot of fun
    We had a lot of money
    We had a little son and we thought we'd call him Sonny
    Sonny gets married and moves away
    Sonny has a baby and bills to pay
    Sonny gets sunnier
    Day by day by day by day

    Lyrics:

    If you leap awake in the mirror of a bad dream
    And for a fraction of a second you can't remember where you are
    Just open your window and follow your memory upstream
    To the meadow in the mountain where we counted every falling star

    I believe a light that shines on you will shine on you forever
    And though I can't guarantee there's nothing scary hiding under your bed
    I'm gonna stand guard like a postcard of a Golden Retriever
    And never leave 'til I leave you with a sweet dream in your head

    I'm gonna watch you shine
    Gonna watch you grow
    Gonna paint a sign
    So you'll always know
    As long as one and one is two
    There could never be a father
    Who loved his daughter more than I love you

    Lyrics:

    The mama pajama rolled out of bed
    And she ran to the police station
    When Ihe papa found out he began to shout
    And he started the investigation

    It's against the law
    It was against the law
    What the mama saw
    It was against the law

    The mama looked down and spit on the ground
    Everytime my name gets mentioned
    The papa said oy if I get that boy
    I'm gonna stick him in the house of detention
    Well I'm on my way
    I don't know where I'm going
    I'm on my way I'm taking my time
    But I don't know where
    Goodbye to Rosie the queen of Corona
    See you, me and Julio
    Down by the schootyard
    See you, me and Julio
    Down by the schoolyard

    Lyrics:
    When you're weary
    Feeling small
    When tears are in your eyes
    I will dry them all

    I'm on your side
    When times get rough
    And friends just can't be found
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down

    When you're down and out
    When you're on the street
    When evening falls so hard
    I will comfort you
    I'll take your part
    When darkness comes
    And pain is all around
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down
    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will lay me down

    Sail on Silver Girl,
    Sail on by
    Your time has come to shine
    All your dreams are on their way

    See how they shine
    If you need a friend
    I'm sailing right behind
    Like a bridge over troubled water

    Like a bridge over troubled water
    I will ease your mind

  • Paul Simon - Graceland & You Can Call Me Al

    9:52

    Hard Rock Calling 2012 (Hyde Park, London)

    Graceland is the title song of the album Graceland, released in 1986 by Paul Simon. The lyrics deal with the singer's thoughts during a road trip to Graceland after the failure of his marriage to actress and author Carrie Fisher. The song won the 1988 Grammy Award for Record of the Year.

    You Can Call Me Al is also a song by Paul Simon, the first single released from his album Graceland. The lyrics can be interpreted as describing a man experiencing a midlife crisis (Where's my wife and family? What if I die here? Who'll be my role model?). However, as Paul Simon himself explained during the Graceland episode of the Classic Albums documentary series, by the third verse the lyrics move from a generic portrait-like perspective to a personal and autobiographical one, as he describes his journey to South Africa which inspired the entire album. The names in the song came from an incident at a party that Simon went to with his then-wife Peggy Harper. French composer and conductor Pierre Boulez, who was attending the same party, mistakenly referred to Paul as Al and to Peggy as Betty, inspiring Simon to write a song.


    Lyrics (Graceland):

    The Mississippi Delta
    Was shining like a National guitar
    I am following the river
    Down the highway
    Through the cradle of the Civil War

    I'm going to Graceland
    Graceland
    In Memphis,Tennessee
    I'm going to Graceland
    Poorboys and pilgrims with families
    And we are going to Graceland
    My traveling companion is nine years old
    He is the child of my first marriage
    But I've reason to believe
    We both will be received
    In Graceland

    She comes back to tell me she's gone
    As if I didn't know that
    As if I didn't know my own bed
    As if I'd never notice
    The way she brushed her hair from
    Her forehead and she said, Losing love
    Is like a window in your heart
    Everybody sees you're blown apart
    Everybody feels the wind blow

    I'm going to Graceland
    Memphis, Tennessee
    I'm going to Graceland
    Poorboys and pilgrims with families
    And we are going to Graceland
    And my traveling companions
    Are ghosts and empty sockets
    I'm looking at ghosts and empties
    But I've reason to believe
    We all will be received
    In Graceland

    There is a girl in New York City
    Who calls herself the human trampoline
    And sometimes when I'm falling, flying
    Or tumbling in turmoil I say
    Whoa, so this is what she means
    She means we're bouncing into Graceland
    And I see losing love
    Is like a window in your heart
    Everybody sees you're blown apart
    Everybody feels the wind blow

    In Graceland, in Graceland
    I'm going to Graceland
    For reasons I cannot explain
    There's some part of me wants to see Graceland
    And I may be obliged to defend
    Every love, every ending
    Or maybe there's no obligations now
    Maybe I've a reason to believe
    We all will be received
    In Graceland

    Whoa, in Graceland, in Graceland
    In Graceland,
    I'm going to Graceland


    Lyrics (You Can Call Me Al):

    A man walks down the street
    He says, Why am I soft in the middle now?
    Why am I soft in the middle?
    The rest of my life is so hard
    I need a photo opportunity
    I want a shot at redemption
    Don't want to end up a cartoon
    In a cartoon graveyard
    Bonedigger, bonedigger
    Dogs in the moonlight
    Far away my well-lit door
    Mr. Beerbelly, Beerbelly
    Get these mutts away from me
    You know I don't find this stuff
    Amusing anymore

    If you'll be my bodyguard
    I can be your long-lost pal
    I can call you Betty
    And Betty, when you call me
    You can call me Al

    A man walks down the street
    He says, Why am I short of attention?
    Got a short little span of attention
    And, woe my nights are so long
    Where's my wife and family?
    What if I die here?
    Who'll be my role model
    Now that my role model is
    Gone gone?
    He ducked back down the alley
    With some roly-poly little bat-faced girl
    All along along
    There were incidents and accidents
    There were hints and allegations

    If you'll be my bodyguard
    I can be your long-lost pal
    I can call you Betty
    And Betty, when you call me
    You can call me Al
    Call me Al

    A man walks down the street
    It's a street in a strange world
    Maybe it's the third world
    Maybe it's his first time around
    He doesn't speak the language
    He holds no currency
    He is a foreign man
    He is surrounded by the sound, the sound
    Cattle in the marketplace
    Scatterlings and orphanages
    He looks around, around
    He sees angels in the architecture
    Spinning in infinity
    He says, Amen! and Hallelujah!

    Call me Al

    Na na na na...

    If you'll be my bodyguard
    I can be your long-lost pal
    I can call you Betty
    And Betty, when you call me
    You can call me Al
    Call me Al

    She's a rich girl

    He's a poor boy
    Empty as a pocket
    Empty as a pocket with nothing to lose

    People say she's crazy
    She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes
    Well that's one way to lose these
    Walking blues
    Diamonds on the soles of your shoes

    She was physically forgotten
    And then she slipped into my pocket
    With my car keys
    She said you've taken me for granted
    Because I please you
    Wearing these diamonds
    And I could say oo oo oo
    As if everybody knows
    What I'm talking about
    As if everybody here would know
    Exactly what I was talking about
    Talking about diamonds on the soles of her shoes

    She makes the sign of a teaspoon
    He makes the sign of a wave
    The poor boy changes clothes
    And he puts on after-shave
    To compensate for his ordinary shoes

    And she said honey take me dancing
    But they ended up by sleeping
    In a doorway
    By the bodegas and the lights on
    Upper Broadway
    Wearing diamonds on the soles of their shoes

    And I could say oo oo oo
    And everybody here would know
    What I was talking about
    I mean everybody here would know exactly
    What I was talking about
    Talking about diamonds

    People say I'm crazy
    I got diamonds on the soles of my shoes
    Well that's one way to lose
    These walking blues
    Diamonds on the soles of my shoes

    In the company of strangers
    In the quiet of the railway station
    Running scared,
    Laying low, seeking out the poorer quarters
    Where the ragged people go
    Looking for the places
    Only they would know
    Lie la lie, lie la la la lie lie
    Lie la lie, lie la la la la lie la la lie

  • Simon & Garfunkel - Cecilia

    2:55

    Cecilia is a song written by US musician Paul Simon. It was first recorded by Simon and Garfunkel for their 1970 album Bridge Over Troubled Water. When released as a single, it reached #4 in the US charts. The single did not chart in the UK, despite being released as the follow-up to Simon and Garfunkel's number one hit Bridge Over Troubled Water.

    The Cecilia of the title is generally interpreted as being a capricious lover, causing both anguish and jubilation to the singer. However, another interpretation[1] is that Cecilia might refer to St. Cecilia, patron saint of music in the Catholic tradition, and thus the song might refer to the frustration of fleeting inspiration in songwriting. St. Cecilia is mentioned in another Paul Simon song, The Coast (from his 1990 album The Rhythm of the Saints): A family of musicians took shelter for the night in the little harbor church of St. Cecilia.

    The song's recording is also quite funny. The Song's foundation was a percussion track in the house Paul was renting on Blue Jay Way in LA. Paul and Art slapped their thights, Eddie Simon thumped a piano bench and a friend strummed a guitar with its strings slackened to the point of atonailty. Roy Halee did the rest.

  • Art Garfunkel talks about Paul Simon, reads the poem The Funeral, May 12, 2019

    5:01

    Art Garfunkel reads from his poem The Funeral about his long friendship with Paul Simon, and who will speak at whose funeral. He stops before finishing the poem, transitioning to a story about the next song in the set, which was Homeward Bound. My apologies, but I only got two thirds of the song--my camera cuts off 4K videos at 5 minutes sharp--but I figured it'd be better to include some of the song rather than none. Recorded at the Uptown Theatre in Napa, California on May 12, 2019 during Garfunkel's Close-Up Tour.

    ==========================================
    Who Will Speak At Whose Funeral?

    When I said: You’ll outlast me, you live more carefully.”
    He said: “Write out what you want.”
    Okay, it’s hard to say I knew him well,
    He was enigmatic to himself.
    Which of us was more aware?
    Which the elder?
    I was born November fifth.
    He on October thirteenth – a few weeks premature, you following me?
    He was born three weeks before me, my dear,
    But he was a premature baby.
    Were we both conceived at the same instant?
    February 5th 1941, the dead middle of winter,
    In the heart of World War Two
    Was I born at the right time?
    For seventy years his arm has been around my shoulder.
    He’s dazzled me with gifts.
    I nurtured him in his youth.
    He brought me into prominence.
    I taught him to sing.
    He connected my voice to the world.
    I made him tall.
    All of our personal belongings are intertwined.
    We say it’s exhausting to compete,
    But we shine for each other.
    It’s still our favorite game.
    It goes on, this embrace, whether I speak for him, or he for me.
    Love ruled our lives.
    It rules the mourners,
    And the winner of longevity.

    Was a Sunny Day Lyrics:

    Was a sunny day
    Not a cloud was in the sky
    Not a negative word was heared
    From the people passing by
    Was a sunny day
    All the birdies in the trees
    And the radio's singing song
    All the favorite melodies

    He was a navy man
    Stationed in Newport News
    She was a high school queen
    With nothing left to lose

    CHORUS

    Her name was Lorelei
    She was his only girl
    She called him Speedoo
    But his Christian name
    Was Mr.Earl

    Lyrics:

    It was a slow day
    And the sun was beating
    On the soldiers by the side of the road
    There was a bright light
    A shattering of shop windows
    The bomb in the baby carriage
    Was wired to the radio

    These are the days of miracle and wonder
    This is the long distance call
    The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
    The way we look to us all
    The way we look to a distant constellation
    That's dying in a corner of the sky
    These are the days of miracle and wonder
    And don't cry baby, don't cry
    Don't cry

I knocked on the door of their house, and Bob Weir opened the door... and we've been friends ever since! But actually, this is our first duet!
