 >>They could call themselves "The Yoda Lady Whos."<<

Oh Al... You should be ashamed... :-[

I don't know why that reminds me of this, but...

I was talking with a bunch of friends at an Acoustic Guitar Forum jam we 
had in West Palm Beach... about 3 months ago. One of the guys said he 
can't remember lyrics at all anymore and I agreed that I don't rehearse 
as such, just occasionally pick up a guitar and play, reading lyrics out 
of a 3 ring binder of songs. We agreed that if we got up and tried to 
sing a song without lyrics, we would never get through it, following 
which one of the other guys jumped in and suggested we form a band and 
call it, "Senior Moment"...

It was funny at the time... but too damned true though...

When I lived in Jamaica, I used to keep about 20 legal pages in my 
guitar case. Each line on the page was a song title, so that was about 
500 songs and I could do nearly all of them. (I didn't say I did them 
well, but I could do them) I knew 99% of the lyrics with no prompting, 
but I didn't play for about the first 5 years after we moved up here and 
one day when I opened my guitar case, I didn't even recognize the titles 
of some songs. A bunch more, I couldn't remember the first few lines 
from which I might have prompted myself to get through a song. Not that 
I've worked on it any, but I've never remembered much of anything and 
finally threw away those sheets a few years ago. I can still recall 
lyrics to some stuff I did ini college during the late 60's and early 
70's, but I can't remember lyrics to some of the songs I wrote. Senior 
moments indeed...
