Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems
Notes: by Malvina
Reynolds; copyright 1967 by the author. From page 91 of the collection
"Inscriptions on a Ginger Jar," printed in the songbook The
Muse of Parker Street.
Fill your mind with empty words,
Let a tune go round and round.
Just avoid a solid thought
Lest your brain get muscle-bound.
Let the flickering picture screen
Lead you through a pointless plot.
By comparison your own
Story is a tangled knot.
