"Suite For 20g" as written by and James Taylor....
Slipping away what can I say
Won`t you stay inside me month of May
And hold on to me golden day, slipping away

Sunshine on my wall
To keep my mind on the things I`m saying
Footsteps in the hall
To tell me I`ve been this way before, nevermore

Let it rain sweet Mary Jane
Let it wash your love down all around me
Come inside and put it down
Let it rain

I`ve been trying hard to find a way to let you know
That we can make it shine most all the time
This time `round I`m searching down to where I used to go
And it`s been on my mind to make it shine

You can say I want to be free
I can say someday I will be

You can say I want to be free
I can say someday I will be

When I catch a common cold
want to hear a saxophone
When I let the good times roll, baby
Slide me a bass trombone

Walk me down old Funky Street
Lord knows I feel good enough to eat (now)
Hold my soul. Now, I`m sure enough fond of my rock `n roll

When I go to sleep at night
want to hear a slide guitar
When I`m feeling loose and right
Riding in my automobile
Boney Maroney and Peggy Sue
Got the rocking pneumonia, got the boogey-woogey flu
Baby, hold my soul. Said, I`m sure enough fond of my rock `n roll
Good God

    General CommentA great but schizophrenic song, like two songs merged ogether (before "When I catch a common cold..." and after that). I wonder if Mary jane is a person or a drug?

    General CommentThis was the last song on the album, and JT just needed to write some filler, as he was told by the recording company execs. He was offended by this, and somewhat spitefully decided to give them any old nonsense just to fulfill the contract and get his "$20G" payment.
