about this table


Simon and Garfunkel live
Underneath the water
All about, the baboons swim
The water's getting hotter
Uh-oh, here comes Barnaby Jones
Rub the ointment quickly
Protect yourself from TV sitcoms
Sometimes it's all you can do

To get by

Welcome back, Mr. Kotter
Salutations and so forth
I see the men have treated you well
Now off to posthumous hummus
Uh-oh, I forgot where I'm going
My brain is leaking fluids
Off we go back to Stonehenge
Home of numerous druids

To get by
