Paul Simon - American tune

Many's the time I've been mistaken 
And many times confused 
Yes, and often felt forsaken 
And certainly misused 
But I'm all right, I'm all right 
I'm just weary to my bones 
Still, you don't expect to be bright and bon vivant 
So far away from home 
So far away from home 

I don't know a soul who's not been battered 
I don't have a friend who feels at ease 
I don't know a dream that's not been shattered 
Or driven to its knees 
But it's all right, it's all right 
For we've lived so well so long 
Still, when I think of the road we're traveling on 
I wonder what's gone wrong 
I can't help it, I wonder what's gone wrong 

And I dreamed I was dying 
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly 
And looking back down at me 
Smiled reassuringly 
And I dreamed I was flying 
And high up above my eyes could clearly see 
The Statue of Liberty 
Sailing away to sea 
And I dreamed I was flying 
For we come on the ship they call the Mayflower 
We come on the ship that sailed the moon 
We come in the age's most uncertain hours 
And sing an American tune 
And it's all right, it's all right 
You can't be forever blessed 
Still tomorrow's going to be another working day 
And I'm trying to get some rest 
That's all I'm trying to get some rest

Paul Simon - Graceland

The Mississippi Delta was shining 
Like a National guitar 
I am following the river 
Down the highway 
Through the cradle of the civil war 

I'm going to Graceland 
Graceland 
In Memphis Tennessee 
I'm going to Graceland 
Poorboys and Pilgrims with families 
And we are going to Graceland 
My traveling companion is nine years old 
He is the child of my first marriage 
But I've reason to believe 
We both will be received 
In Graceland 

She comes back to tell me she's gone 
As if I didn't know that 
As if I didn't know my own bed 
As if I'd never noticed 
The way she brushed her hair from her forehead 
And she said losing love 
Is like a window in your heart 
Everybody sees you're blown apart 
Everybody sees the wind blow 

I'm going to Graceland 
Memphis Tennessee 
I'm going to Graceland 
Poorboys and Pilgrims with families 
And we are going to Graceland 

And my traveling companions 
Are ghosts and empty sockets 
I'm looking at ghosts and empties 
But I've reason to believe 
We all will be received 
In Graceland 

There is a girl in New York City 
Who calls herself the human trampoline 
And sometimes when I'm falling, flying 
Or tumbling in turmoil I say 
Oh, so this is what she means 
She means we're bouncing into Graceland 
And I see losing love 
Is like a window in your heart 
Everybody sees you're blown apart 
Everybody sees the wind blow 

In Graceland, in Graceland 
I'm going to Graceland 
For reasons I cannot explain 
There's some part of me wants to see 
Graceland 
And I may be obliged to defend 
Every love, every ending 
Or maybe there's no obligations now 
Maybe I've a reason to believe 
We all will be received 
In Graceland

Paul Simon - Sound of silence

Hello darkness, my old friend, I've come to talk to you again,
because a vision softly creeping left its seeds while I was sleeping and the vision that was
plented in my brain still remains with in the sound of silence. 


In restless dreams I walked alone narrow streets of cobblestone, 'Neath the halo of a streetlamp,
I turned my collar to the old an damp When my my eyes were stabbed by
the flash of neon light That split the night and touched the sound of silence. 


And in the naked light I saw ten thousand people, maybe more. People talking without speaking,
people hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share and no one dare disturbed the sound of silence. 


"Foolsl" said I, "you do not know silence like a cancer grows."
"Hear my words that I might teach you,
take my arms that I might reach you",
And echoed in the wells of silence. 


And the people bowed and prayed to the neon god they made. And the sign flashed out its warning.
In the words that it was forming,
And the signs said "The words of thr prophets are written on the subway walls and tenement halls" 

And whisper'd in the sound of silence.

Paul Simon - You can call me Al

A man walks down the street 
He says why am I soft in the middle now 
Why am I soft in the middle 
The rest of my life is so hard 
I need a photo-opportunity 
I want a shot at redemption 
Don't want to end up a cartoon 
In a cartoon graveyard 
Bonedigger Bonedigger 
Dogs in the moonlight 
Far away my well-lit door 
Mr. Beerbelly Beerbelly 
Get these mutts away from me 
You know I don't find this stuff amusing anymore 

If you'll be my bodyguard 
I can be your long lost pal 
I can call you Betty 
And Betty when you call me 
You can call me Al 

A man walks down the street 
He says why am I short of attention 
Got a short little span of attention 
And wo my nights are so long 
Where's my wife and family 
What if I die here 
Who'll be my role-model 
Now that my role-model is 
Gone Gone 
He ducked back down the alley 
With some roly-poly little bat-faced girl 
All along along 
There were incidents and accidents 
There were hints and allegations 

If you'll be my bodyguard 
I can be your long lost pal 
I can call you Betty 
And Betty when you call me 
You can call me Al 
Call me Al 

A man walks down the street 
It's a street in a strange world 
Maybe it's the Third World 
Maybe it's his first time around 
He doesn't speak the language 
He holds no currency 
He is a foreign man 
He is surrounded by the sound 
The sound 
Cattle in the marketplace 
Scatterlings and orphanages 
He looks around, around 
He sees angels in the architecture 
Spinning in infinity 
He says Amen! and Hallelujah! 

If you'll be my bodyguard 
I can be your long lost pal 
I can call you Betty 
And Betty when you call me 
You can call me Al 
Call me Al
