The Lyrics

i've written me a new one
i really think you'll like this one
though my hearing days are through
i sense violins through the silence

although i can't hear
i wrote a symphony
despite my malady
drawing me closer
closer to my grave

but, suddenly...i wrote a symphony
ooh...i ain't lost this touch of mine
i hear it sounds divine
i will leave my mark behind
though lost in my world
aching silently

although i can't hear
i wrote a symphony
played sweet and tenderly
its so fine, this tune of mine, now, baby

baby baby
the ode to joy begins
you'll really dig the end
cause it goes on and on and on

now, baby baby
i've hummed it several times
but only to myself
i hope those that hear it
feel the joy i felt

although i can't hear
i wrote a symphony
it is number nine for me
i have a hearing malady, i hate, now

baby baby
they all stand, hailing me
worshipping my latest fare
the sound of silence fills the air

now, baby baby
don't let this moment end
the people rose for me
oh, they go for me, baby baby

baby baby
i wrote a symphony
despite my malady

You write one (or more) every day, alvin. This is no exception. I hope you hear better then Bethoven, though. 5's

As a classical fan, I like this. I wonder if you've heard the Joni Mitchell song "Judgement of the Moon and Stars" from her "For the Roses" album. It's a bit the same idea. "No tongue in the bell and the fishwives yell, but they might as well be mute....."

555, great job..... Reminds me of a quote from "The World According to Student Bloopers" by Richard Lederer of St. Paul's School:

"Bach was the most famous composer in the world, and so was Handel. Handel was half German, half Italian and half English. He was very large. Bach died from 1750 to the present. Beethoven wrote music even though he was deaf. He was so deaf he wrote loud music. He took long walks in the forest even when everyone was calling for him. Beethoven expired in 1827 and later died for this."

Beethoven rocks! Johnny: that quote reminds me of PDQ Bach.
