The education of Kimoreena…(or everything I needed to learn, I learned through Elton John songs)

For instance…

  • No man’s a jester playing Shakespeare
  • Friends are found on every road
  • The boulevard is not that bad
  • Country comfort’s in a truck that’s going back home
  • There are women and women and some hold you tight while some leave you counting the stars in the night
  • When it rains, the rain falls down
  • You ain’t seen nothing till you’ve been in a motel baby like a Holiday Inn
  • It’s like trying to drink whiskey from a bottle of wine
  • Mars ain’t no kind of place to raise your kids
  • Spanish Harlem aren’t just pretty words to say
  • Rose trees never grow in New York City
  • Spain is pretty (though I’ve never been)
  • Saturday night’s alright for fighting
  • The fever’s gonna catch you when the bitch gets back
  • We all fall in love sometimes
  • Breaking up is sometimes like breaking the law
  • Sorry seems to be the hardest word
  • Goodbye doesn’t mean this has to be the end
  • Where there is one room, you’ll always find another
  • It’s the innocent who pay when broken dreams get in the way
  • There’s a word in Spanish
  • That’s why they call it the blues
  • Breaking hearts ain’t what it used to be
  • Everybody’s looking for something that just ain’t there
  • Sad songs say so much
  • It’s as cold as Christmas in the middle of the year
  • Nikita is the other side of any given line in time
  • Slow rivers run cold
  • Don’t need an extra eye to see that the fire spreads faster in a breeze
  • Flesh on silk looks different than on a cotton sheet back home
  • Mona Lisa’s getting older
  • There’s a light where the darkness ends
  • Some things look better just passing through
  • There’s a North in us all
  • You should never take more than you give
  • There’s something about distance that gets to us all
  • Love’s got a lot to answer for
  • January is the month that cares
  • When the wall’s built, and the heart hardens, you get a dark diamond
  • Western skies don’t make it right
  • A dream will fly the moment that you open up your eyes
  • Birds don’t fall from the sky when they die
  • There’s a wonder in this weakness, it’s so beautiful sometimes
  • We all get what we’re delivered
  • Too many tears have been cried
  • Two sparks can set the whole thing off
  • Blues never fade away
  • Every one of us that ever came to play has to cross the bridge or fade away
  • You can’t go back, and if you try, it fails
  • If it wasn’t for bad, you’d be good
  • You’ve gotta stand up straight when you ride that whale
  • When you’re in the hands of angels, life is oh so sweet

I could go on (oh, you know I could), but I’ll leave it at that.  Besides, I’m thinking there might be a Part Deux to this post, just from a slightly different perspective.  🙂

Ok, so it was a little bit funny, wouldn’t you say?
