The day looks just like that here today.

Gorgeous beginning to Summer!

In honour of the Summer Solstice, here's a tune from Paul Simons' new album SURPRISE


It's outrageous to line your pockets off the misery of the poor
Outrageous the crimes some human beings must endure
It's a blessing to wash your face in the Summer Solstice rain
It's outrageous a man like me standin' here and complainin'

But I'm tired
900 situps a day
I'm painting my hair the color of mud
Mud. Okay!?

I'm tired, tired.
Anybody care what I say? No!
Painting my hair the color of mud

Who's gonna love you when your looks are gone?

God will
Like he waters the flowers on your windowsill
Take me
I'm an ordinary player in the key of C
And my will
Was broken by my pride and my vanity

It's outrageous the food they try to serve in the public school
Outrageous they way they talk to you like you're come kind of clinical fool.
It's a blessing to rest my head in the circle of your love
Outrageous I can't stop thinking 'bout the things I'm thinking of

And I'm tired
900 situps a day
I'm painting my hair the color of mud
Mud. Okay!?
I'm tired, tired
Anybody care what I'm sayin'? No!
Painting my hair the color of mud.

Who's gonna love you when your looks are gone?
God will
Like he waters the flowers on your windowsill
Who's gonna love you when your looks are gone?
