Sporty Ougrée is sitting at the bar


“There’s a place for everything,
Everything, anything, 
There’s a place for everything 
Where it ought to be: 
For a chicken, the hen’s wing; 
For poison, the bee’s sting;
For almond-blossom, Spring; 
A beerhouse for me.” 

(R. Graves in Strong beer)

The courage to build modern

Rockers filled with fantasy

“And so it did happen like it could have been foreseen
The timeless explosion of fantasy’s dream
At the peak of the night, the king and the queen
Tumbled all down into pieces”

(Bob Dylan in Ballad in plain D)

Looking for the cook

“I went into a restaurant
Lookin’ for the cook
I told them I was the editor
Of a famous etiquette book
The waitress he was handsome
He wore a powder blue cape
I ordered some suzette, I said
“Could you please make that crepe”
Just then the whole kitchen exploded
From boilin’ fat
Food was flying everywhere
And I left without my hat”

(Bob Dylan in Bob Dylan’s 115th dream)

It’s too cold to hold you almost naked


“You think she’s yours, to have and to hold
Someday you’ll learn, when her love grows cold
But I forgot more than you’ll ever know about her.”

(Bob Dylan in I forgot more than you’ll ever know about her)
