The Lyrics

Raven - ghostly, ancient raven,
On the bust of Pallas above my door.
Rustling of each purple curtain,
Filling me with terror ne'er felt before.

Raven, who won't let me forget her -
That maiden rare and radient, who angels call Lenore.

Raven, nevermore, raven -
Evermore nameless here for evermore.

Raven, perfume from an unseen censer,
And, raven, with your angels from your Plutonian shore.

Raven, oh, respite and nepenthe -
Oh, quaff the sweet nepenthe, bird, forget the lost Lenore.

Raven, raven, get your beak from my heart,
And, raven, quit the bust of Pallas, fly out of my door.

Raven, nevermore, raven,
Evermore bird poo falling on my floor,
Raven, nevermore, raven.......

Thanks, alvin, IB and LCC. Like the Raven the OS still is sitting. Somebody told me that she heard that song at every wedding for ten years after it was released. Morris Albert came to Burbank to perform and one couple reminisced about the time they were on the verge of divorce until they heard MA sing the OS in person. Then they reconciled. I'm getting nausious excuse me............

Raven removal? Who wants to get rid of ravens besides Edgar Allen Poe? Ravens are nice.

I love the poem by EAP. This was a new experience for me... It was great 'till the part about bird poo...That was just out of place. Nice work overall!!! Kudos to you!
