    Lyrics:

    Once upon a midnight dearie

    I woke with something in my head

    I couldn’t escape the memory

    Of a phone call and of what you said

    Like a game show contestant with a parting gift

    I could not believe my eyes

    When I saw through the voice of a trusted friend

    Who needs to humor me and tell me lies

    Yeah humor me and tell me lies

    And I’ll lie too and say I don’t mind

    And as we seek so shall we find

    And when you’re feeling open I’ll still be here

    But not without a certain degree of fear

    Of what will be with you and me

    I still can see things hopefully

    But you

    Why you wanna give me a run-around

    Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up

    When all it does is slow me down

    Shake me and my confidence

    About a great many things

    But I’ve been there I can see it cower

    Like a nervous magician waiting in the wings

    Of a bad play where the heroes are right

    And nobody thinks or expects too much

    And Hollywood’s calling for the movie rights

    Singing hey babe let’s keep in touch

    Hey baby let’s keep in touch

    But I want more than a touch I want you to reach me

    And show me all the things no one else can see

    So what you feel becomes mine as well

    And soon if we’re lucky we’d be unable to tell

    What’s yours and mine the fishing’s fine

    And it doesn’t have to rhyme so don’t you feed me a line

    But you

    Why you wanna give me a run-around

    Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up

    When all it does is slow me down

    (harmonica solo)

    Tra la la la la bomba dear this is the pilot speaking

    And I’ve got some news for you

    It seems my ship still stands no matter what you drop

    And there ain’t a whole lot that you can do

    Oh sure the banner may be torn and the wind’s gotten colder

    Perhaps I’ve grown a little cynical

    But I know no matter what the waitress brings

    I shall drink in and always be full

    Yeah I will drink it and always be full

    Oh I like coffee

    And I like tea

    I’d like to be able to enter a final plea

    I still got this dream that you just can’t shake

    I love you to the point you can no longer take

    Well all right

    Okay, so be that way

    I hope and pray

    That there’s something left to say

    But you

    Why you wanna give me a run-around

    Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up

    When all it does is slow me down

    Oh yeah

    Why you wanna give me a run-around

    Is it a sure-fire way to speed things up

    When all it does is slow me down

  • It is a poem by Edgar Allan Poe. Nevermore!

    Once upon a midnight dreary,

    while i pondered weak and weary…

    long I stood there, wondering , fearing…

    deep into that darkness ᴘᴇᴇring…

    quote the raven, ‘NEVERMORE!’
