Lyrics for Why? (The King of Love Is Dead):
*NOTE Many corrections, as this is LIVE, and I will fill in, once I stop crying, for JOY. x.
We want to do a tune
Written for today, for this hour
For Dr. Martin Luther King
We've stated before that the whole program is dedicated to his memory
But this tune is written about him, and for him and so
We had yesterday to learn it and so we'll see
Once upon this planet earth
Lived a man of humble birth *NOTE the word is NOBLE
Preaching love and freedom for his fellow man
He was dreaming of a day
Peace would come to earth to stay
And he spread this message all across the land
Turn the other cheek he'd plead
Love thy neighbor was his creed
Pain humiliation death, he did not dread
With his Bible at his side
From his foes he did not hide
It's hard to think that this great man is dead (oh yes)
Will the murders never cease
Are thy men or are they beasts?
What do they ever hope, ever…

#lesalikesitlive (for my own, private tracking)...LOVE to the WORLD!

Personal: Dedicated to "Uncle" Ralph Hoagland (RIP on 1/17/20) NYT and Boston Globe obits are full of his creations, including CVS, but also the Orson Welles. Worked at Auntie Molly (she is doing GREAT!) and Uncle Ralph's restaurant, 33 Dunster Street/ #harvardsquare . Calling all #boston peeps? Special Love/.VERY much part of civil rights and other important biz, with their $/kindness...blessing to be taken under their roof in my move in 1981 outta #bolinas

2020: I AM still LAZY, but my alter @forever_garage is up every Wednesday: PS NOT for EVERYONE? It's so USA 60's specific, jump in if curious? Love Ziggy the Pooch, my Main Man (RIP 6/21/18). Boutique Destination for YOU! Into Digging Deep for LIVE #lesalikesitlive (if possible), Page a Pal: Find someone that will like a tune and pg them? Umm, terrible at hit backs, but try best (pg me in current post for best results). I'm a go-to for GJB hacks. FYI: Unlike, like again to keep in top 4 likes; add a comment to song name; it won't interfere w/who did first, etc. You are WELCOME:).. .Yup, I'm a child of Hippies - so loads of taste/stories. I'm a PROUD transplant from TIMJ, then LL/that other thing before the group JUMP to GJB:). I'll go to songs I like (pg in current will get a hit back as I gave up a few years ago on checking emails). Always looking for something new for me and you/sharing something from past. This is where I'm supposed to list all my music tastes (See that GJB kinda does IT?/Not really accurate...). WELL, if ya don't know me by now, check out my archives-There is SOMETHING there for you:) I love my GJB Friends and Fiends - the happy chatter and the puns, and I love pages and bonus tracks. I am so grateful for the deep knowledge when we dig deep:). Enjoy and Kisses! ...and a small x.
