"Get These Mutts Away from Me...

 you know I don't find this stuff amusing anymore."

Can't get these lyrics out of my head today.  It's only fair that they should be stuck in yours as well.   "You Can Call Me Al" by Paul Simon-- such an entertaining, classic song.   I have no idea what the lyrics mean, but I would love to have been a fly on the wall when they were written.  The entire Graceland album is beautifully written, come to think of it.  Definitely one of my favorites.

You know you're looking for a diversion, go ahead, watch the video.  Chevy Chase's subtle dance moves and silly facial expressions will have you smiling the rest of the day.

"He looks around, around
He sees angels in the architecture 
Spinning in infinity 
He says Amen! and Hallelujah!"


  1. I love Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes! I hadn't seen this video either - thanks for sharing! Paul sitting there twiddling his thumbs cracks me up. And the dance routine with the saxophone and trumpet.

  2. Oh, I love Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes! If you haven't seen the Saturday Night Live performance, it's definitely worth your time to seek it out. It was just awesome.

  3. I loved seeing Ladysmith Black Mambazo in the SNL segment! Graceland is one of my favorites from Paul Simon also!
