"Eulogy to Lenny Bruce" as written by and Tim Hardin....
I've lost a friend
And I don't know why
But never again
Will we get together to die.
And why after every last shot
Was there always another ?
Why after all you hadn't got
Did you leave your life to your mother ?

And Honey Harlow
The singer burlesque queen
How did she know
You needed morphine ?
Why didn't you listen
To the warning words of your friends
While they told you so ?
I know you couldn't listen
To people talk about
What they didn't know.

I've lost a friend
And I don't know why
But never again
Will we get together to die.
And why after every last shot
Was there always another ?
Why after all you hadn't got
Did you leave your life to your mother ?

    General CommentTerribly sad song from the ever important Nico of The Velvet Underground fame. If you thought her talents ended with VU, you should check out her impressive solo catalogue; 'Chelsea Girls' and 'The Marble Index' being the choice cuts.

    General CommentThe guitar in this is similar to the one in Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel.

    MemoryYou needed morphine ?
    Why didn't you listen
    To the warning words of your friends
    While they told you so ?
    I know you couldn't listen
    To people talk about
    What they didn't know.

    General Commentlistening to this song now, mesmerizing

    We owe more to Lenny Bruce than we can repay. It depresses me that so few people know who he is today when he is the Elvis of stand up comedians. He had so many great quotes and truthful ideas on this satire of shit we call "society." His death left a hole that hasn't been filled and this song reflects that beautifully.
