Thread Name: Seeger's swan song?
Subject: RE: Seeger's swan song?
We sang together a couple of weeks ago, when Clearwater was named to the National Register of Historic Places. He is not as young as he once was but he is always youthful.

One of my favorite lyrics of his:

How do I know my youth is all spent?
My get up and go has got up and went.
In spite of it all, I'm able to grin
When I think of the places my get up has been.

When I commented on the similarity between this lyric and "Officer Krupke" from "West Side Story," Pete's response was that he and Lenny were at Harvard around the same time and that both songs were probably descended from "Fair Harvard."
