"Dress Rehearsal Rag"  
Four o'clock in the afternoon  
and I didn't feel like very  
much.  
I said to myself, "Where are  
you golden boy,  
where is your famous golden  
touch?"  
I thought you knew where  
all of the elephants lie down,  
I thought you were the crown  
prince  
of all the wheels in Ivory  
Town.  
Just take a look at your body  
now,  
there's nothing much to save  
and a bitter voice in the  
mirror cries,  
"Hey, Prince, you need a  
shave."  
Now if you can manage to get  
your trembling fingers to  
behave,  
why don't you try unwrapping  
a stainless steel razor blade?  
That's right, it's come to this,  
yes it's come to this,  
and wasn't it a long way down,  
wasn't it a strange way down?  
There's no hot water  
and the cold is running thin.  
Well, what do you expect  
from  
the kind of places you've been  
living in?  
Don't drink from that cup,  
it's all caked and cracked along  
the rim.  
That's not the electric light,  
my friend,  
that is your vision growing  
dim.  
Cover up your face with soap,  
there,  
now you're Santa Claus.  
And you've got a gift for  
anyone  
who will give you his applause.  
I thought you were a racing  
man,  
ah, but you couldn't take the  
pace.  
That's a funeral in the mirror  
and it's stopping at your face.  
That's right, it's come to this,  
yes it's come to this,  
and wasn't it a long way down,  
ah wasn't it a strange way  
down?  
Once there was a path  
and a girl with chestnut hair,  
and you passed the summers  
picking all of the berries that  
grew there;  
there were times she was a  
woman,  
oh, there were times she was  
just a child,  
and you held her in the  
shadows  
where the raspberries grow  
wild.  
And you climbed the twilight  
mountains  
and you sang about the view,  
and everywhere that you  
wandered  
love seemed to go along with  
you.  
That's a hard one to  
remember,  
yes it makes you clench your  
fist.  
And then the veins stand out  
like highways,  
all along your wrist.  
And yes it's come to this,  
it's come to this,  
and wasn't it a long way down,  
wasn't it a strange way down?  
You can still find a job,  
go out and talk to a friend.  
On the back of every  
magazine  
there are those coupons you  
can send.  
Why don't you join the  
Rosicrucians,  
they can give you back your  
hope,  
you can find your love with  
diagrams  
on a plain brown envelope.  
But you've used up all your  
coupons  
except the one that seems  
to be written on your wrist  
along with several thousand  
dreams.  
Now Santa Claus comes  
forward,  
that's a razor in his mit;  
and he puts on his dark glasses  
and he shows you where to  
hit;  
and then the cameras pan,  
the stand in stunt man,  
dress rehearsal rag,  
it's just the dress rehearsal  
rag,  
you know this dress rehearsal  
rag,

The smallest voices

speak the loudest I hear them in my head. Watch for Pioter the balloon clown who bends light. Once I fell into the twists of a poodle and woke up three days earlier.

Minneapolis was nice. Got the job done but it took a half day longer than scheduled cause of weather elsewhere. Ss called and invited me out for ice cream with his son but I was too tired and was already in bed. Not a bad week all in all.

It was cold windy and snowy. The job took two days longer than expected due to rotted floors. Had to change hotels and got a twenty dollar breakfast coupon woo hoo steak and eggs. went to a place called old chicago good chow and 130 different beers. I had a couple of Chimays till I realized they were ten bucks each and you can still smoke inside.
