River by Joni Mitchell
It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on. . .
|Mitchell, Joni. Blue. Burbank, CA: Reprise, 1971. Sound recording.|
Emily was twenty three
Sitting on the ground
Under a dead palm tree
6th and Speedway
On Christmas day . . .
Brick by Ben Folds Five
6am, day after Christmas
I throw some clothes on in the dark
The smell of cold
Car seat is freezing
The world is sleeping
I am numb. . .
Christmas in Prison by John Prine
It was Christmas in prison
And the food was real good
We had turkey and pistols
Carved out of wood . . .

ps. It's pretty raunchy, but I really liked Allen's most recent movie, That's My Boy.
See the guy in the red Izod shirt? That's my cousin!
