Subject: RE: The wimpiest song ever? Or is it deep?
Thank you Gurney and I really think you need to throw it in to a set and ask the audience to interpret the meaning   (;<)).........

Then someone mentioned "Suzanne" and I wanted to add that at some point in the distant past I liked it a bit and Judy Collins as well. Then it came to me one night, an epiphany of sorts...........Not only did Judy tend to sing a bit off key at times, everything she recorded was pretty much crap! She didn't write the stuff I know but DAMN! Take "Both Sides Now"......please.......

Bows and flows of angel hair
And ice-cream castles in the sky
And feather canyons everywhere

What the hell was Joni Mitchell goofed up on when she wrote that?

Then Suzanne......I think what it needs is a Spaw re-write.....

Suzanne takes you down
To her place by the river
You can watch the boats go by
And be bored to death forever
But you really want to fuck her
So you talk and act like you care
But she's a Jewish Princess
And won't even touch you down there
Yet you really want to nail her
You wanna' fuck her til she's blind
But she won't let you near her
And the only thing getting fucked here
Is your mind

Still needs a lotta' work and more verses but its a start.....
