stretching the boundaries of folk and traditional music, but I know how broad-minded Mudcatters are. Circa 1972, Rita Coolidge had a song that was very big on the airwaves at least in Ithaca, NY. The catchy tune is still in my head and I've never been able to find it on any of Rita's albums, including retrospective ones. The chorus was something like:

And you know who your friends are by looking in their eyes.
You know so you smile, but they never realise
What goes on inside every me and you
Keeps on a going on (a-on)
Keeps on a-goin' on

well..does anybody know it/about it?

a friend is someone who will help you move furniture.. and a real friend is someone who will help you move a body..

Good luck Felippa..

love and happiness

Ritchie

Lyrics found online and checked against the video at YouTube—although that's a concert video from 2003, not the original recording (which was from the album "Rita Coolidge", 1971).

The song starts at about 4:50 into the video.


SECOND STORY WINDOW
Marc Benno

You can do whatever, you want to do.
Do whatever you want to, and you'll never die.
You can do whatever, you want to do.
Whatever you want to do, you can try.

And you know who your friends are by looking in their eyes.
You know, so you smile, but they never realize,
What goes on inside of every me and you
Keeps on a-rolling on, keeps on a-rolling on.

Life just lasts a second.
You don't have time to reckon
Things that people say and do.
Try to find your secrets.
Death is just a sequence
One day to be going through.

And you know who your friends are by looking in their eyes.
You know, so you smile, but they never realize,
What goes on inside of every me and you
Keeps on a-rolling on, keeps on a-rolling on.

You can love if you can live forever.
You can live forever if you love.
Yeah, just be a giver and help the world(?) deliver
Something less for something more.

And you know who your friends are by looking in their eyes.
You know, so you smile, but they never realize,
What goes on inside of every me and you
Keeps on a-rolling on, keeps on a-rolling on,
Keeps on a-rolling on, keeps on a-rolling on.
