And most people have a woman in their heart, most men have a woman in their heart and most women have a man in their heart.

I always felt I was scraping the bottom of the barrel trying to get a song together.

I don't really understand that process called reincarnation but if there is such a thing I'd like to come back as my daughter's dog.

I had the title poet, and maybe I was one for a while. Also, the title singer was kindly accorded me, even though I could barely carry a tune.
