Now Playing

Normally, my workday warm-up tune is the Muppet Show theme.

Seriously, the “It’s time to play the music….”

But today needed a kick so “Three Strange Days” by School of Fish currently plays while I look for the lyrics to a long-lost folk song.

The album is detailed in this Wikipedia entry. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/index.html?curid=8327805 

The song:

 

“I Saw a Stranger With Your Hair” by John Gorka

 

I saw a stranger with your hair
Tried to make her give it back
So I could send it off to you
Maybe Federal Express
‘Cause I know you’d miss it

I saw another with your eyes
The flash just turned my head
I went to try them on for size
But they looked the other way
And they wouldn’t listen

Chorus: But you’re never hard to find in a crowd
The people around you smiling out loud
Their feet don’t touch the ground
No, their feet don’t touch the ground
No, their feet don’t touch the ground

I heard a stranger with your voice
It took me by surprise
Again I found it wasn’t you
Just an angel in disguise
In for a visit

By the way how is my heart?
I haven’t seen it since you left
I’m almost sure it followed you
Could you sometime send it back
I’ll buy the ticket

(Chorus)

I saw a stranger with your hair
I saw another with your eyes
I heard an angel with your voice
By the way how is my heart?
By the way how is my heart?
