Thread Name: Lyr Req: If Wishes Were Fishes (Eric Bogle)
Subject: RE: Do you remember this song?-If wishes were fishes
Thanks Greg, Nicholas, Paul,oldhippie and Dave. I KNEW my mudcat mavens could solve the puzzle. Wow, turns out it is a folk(style) song after all, and penned by one of my favorite songwriters. I know Eric for (of course) "The band played walzing Matilda", have seen him in concert but never heard him do this song.
Ah the subconscious works in mysterious ways (or not so mysterious lol) - I just had a birthday and this song started roaming around in my thoughts - I agree Dave it IS quite a lovely song and so meaningful as one reaches..ah.....a certain age.
btw I'm not familia with Phyllis Morrisey, is that a recent CD?
btw does anyone listen to Lynn Samuels anymore. She always used to make me laugh; I really didn't pay attention to her politics as much as her delightfully Noo Yawkese observations on life, like that the stairs at 74th Street and Roosevelt Ave IND line was too too much to climb(and they still are) I heard she's on satellite radio but I am not yet plugged in.
Thanks again, mudcat friends!
