A long time ago I drank Jupiler here


“If you read a poem

After drinking three bottles of beer
And can’t understand a word,
Well whose fault is that?”

(A. Thorne in After Three Bottles Of Beer)

An easy chair for the dustman

"At night when everyone's asleep
It must be very late! I creep
Softly down the darkened stairs
To the big room where we have prayers,
And, standing at the window,
I watch the Dustman going by.
Perched up on his high seat he looks
Like charioteers in those old books,
And his long coat, when the lights are dim,
Makes funny shadows all over him."

(S. O'Sullivan in The dustman)

As I’m ramblin’ you can travel with me too …


“So it’s fare thee well my own true love
We’ll meet another day, another time
It ain’t the leavin’
That’s a-grievin’ me
But my true love who’s bound to stay behind”

(Bob Dylan in Farewell)

Still dreaming, still cold


“You left me standing out in the cold
People ask about you, I didn’t tell them everything I knew
Well, I’m trying to get closer but I’m still a million miles from you.”

(Bob Dylan in Million miles)

No more singing in the stadium


“Why — do they shut me out of Heaven?
Did I sing — too loud?
But — I can sing a little minor,
Timid as a bird.”

(E. Dickinson in Further poems of Emily Dickinson)
