Roper and Ebert, deux: or Will no one rid me of this turbulent beast...

on Leno tonight, mister Epics-Can-Inspire-No-Real-Passion said:
-- "I mean, come on, can we all sing 'Into the West'? No one---" --

oh, so smug... you moron. Like the average guy is going to sing out loud, in a crowded theater, a song with a difficult range, possibly alone, even if given a real chance, which - guess what - they aren't. So, you probably could have gotten the entire theater to sing the theme from Gilliagan's Island - So F***ing what? What does that prove? NOTHING except that you are a smart ass. Well, as Lee likes to say - "Everyone likes a little, but nobody likes a smart one..."

So, stand up, everybody - don't be afraid, or shy - c'mon, on your feet, someone has to carry the melody when I start to cry ---

This is for you, mister head-up-my-own-ass Roper....

Lay down your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You have come to journey's end
Sleep now and dream of the ones who came before
They are calling from across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping

What can you see on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea apale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

And all will turn to silver glass
A light on the water
All Souls pass

Hope fades into the world of night
Through shadows falling out of memory and time
Don't say we have come now to the end
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again
And you'll be here in my arms
Just sleeping

What can you see on the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea a pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

And all will turn to silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass into the West
