The night was dark, the sky was blue
Down the alley, the ice-wagon flew
Hit a bump and somebody screamed
You should have heard just what I've seen

Now take a little walk with me Arlene
And tell me Who Do You Love .


Bo Diddley 1958

Carpe diem is from old Roman seafood restaurant menus. It means 'Catch of the day'.

If the red slayer think he slays,
Or if the slain think he is slain,
They know not well the subtle ways
I keep, and pass, and turn again.

Far or forgot to me is near;
Shadow and sunlight are the same;
The vanished gods to me appear;
And one to me are shame and fame.

They reckon ill who leave me out;
When me they fly, I am the wings;
I am the doubter and the doubt,
I am the hymn the _____ _____.

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, yeah

I love java, sweet and hot
Whoops, Mr. Moto, I'm a coffee pot
Shoot me the pot and I'll pour me a shot
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup

Oh, throw me that slug from the wonderful mug
And I'll cut a rug till I'm snug in a jug
Drop a nickel in my pot, Joe, a take 'em slow
Waiter, waiter, percolator

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me, yeah
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, _ ___.

So right you really are, Barz, and it was a tough one too. But too bad. The roolze say that by being right you can post your own Cultural Phrase for others to guess ...but too late. Maybe next time. smile

Have you seen the well-to-do, up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare, with their noses in the air
High hats and Arrowed collars, white spats and lots of dollars
Spending every dime, for a wonderful time
If you're blue and you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits...
Puttin' on the ritz
