bummer

actually, i'm not totally bummin', at the moment, as measures i have taken to try not to be (totally bummin') seem to be being effective---this ten minutes, anyway. so i'm not as bummin' as the term might be expected to suggest in connection with this song i'm going to link ya'll to, which i uploaded from work the other day (and left the disc at the office, so am about to download back to myself). it was my favorite on this japanese import billie holiday record i bought when i was in college. and the willow is one of my very favorite trees.

  .mp3 --> "Willow Weep for Me" -- Billie Holiday

Willow, weep for me
Willow, weep for me
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me
Listen to my plea
Hear me, Willow, and
Weep for me

Gone, my lovely dreams
Lovely summer dreams
Gone and left me here
To weep my tears along the stream
Sad as I can be
Hear me, Willow, and
Weep for me

Whisper to the wind
And say that Love has sinned
To leave my heart a-sighin'
And cryin' alone

Murmur to the night
Hide its starry light
So none will find me sighin'
Cryin' all alone

Weepin' Willow tree,
Weep in sympathy
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me
Listen to my plea
Hear me, Willow, and
Weep for me
Willow,
Willow,
Weep for me


sometimes a baby doesn't, but sometimes a baby just wants somebody to say there, there, baby. c'mere now. god bless the child who can let herself have that, and most very fortunate is she who can actually ask.
