    Although I vehemently deny that I am an "old-timer", this is the opening line, John Lennon speaking, from the Beatles Let It Be album, the song that follows is Two Of Us. Most people consider it the introduction for the album and not part of the song. Who knows.

    Start tearing the old man down
    Run past the heather and down to the old road
    Start turning the grain into the ground
    Roll a new leaf over
    In the middle of the night, there's an old man treading around in the gathered
    rain
    Hey mister if you're going to walk on water
    Oh, could you drop a line my way?

    Omaha, somewhere in middle America
    Get right to the heart of matters
    It's the heart that matters more
    I think you better turn your ticket in, and get your money back at the door

    Sorry got baseball on my mind!

    How could I forget this one.

    I'm upper, upper class high society
    God's gift to ballroom notoriety
    And I always fill my ballroom
    The event is never small
    All the social papers say I've got the biggest balls of all

    There a lot to be learned, so look around

    Just what makes that little old ant
    Think he’ll move that rubber tree plant
    Anyone knows an ant, can’t
    Move a rubber tree plant

    Good question...the answer to which may forever remain locked away in the soul of John Lennon.

    Personally, I'm wondering what the "defades" (sp?) are.

    Charles Hawtrey

    I think you might have to watch a whole lot of old British TV comedies to find out who The Defades were. Actually, it's probably "Deaf Aids"
