I love the similies and metaphors. I made a mix tape for my students to teach these, and perhaps created a new generation of fans. Great music transend so called generation gaps. Simon is timeless. Talent like this comes around seldomly. You critics need to study music.

LYRICS

A long time ago, yeah, before you was born, dude
When I was still single and life was great
I held this job as a traveling salesman
That kept me moving from state to state

[Chorus 1]
Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
State of Louisiana
Wondering where a city boy could go
To get a little conversation
Drink a little red wine
Catch a little bit of those Cajun girls
Dancing to Zydeco

[Verse 2]
Along come a young girl, she's pretty as a prayer book
Sweet as an apple on Christmas day
I said, "Good gracious can this be my luck
If that's my prayer book, Lord let us pray"

[Chorus 2]
Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
State of Louisiana
Wondering what a city boy could do
To get her in a conversation
Maybe drink a little red wine
Dance to the music of Clifton Chenier
The King of the Bayou

[Verse 3]
Well, that was your mother and that was your father
Before you was born, dude, when life was great
You are the burden of my generation
I sure do love you, well let's get that straight

[Chorus 3]
Well, I'm standing on the corner of Lafayette
Across the street from The Public
Heading down to the Lone Star Cafe
Maybe get a little conversation
Drink a little red wine
Standing in the shadow of Clifton Chenier
Dancing the night away
James Broussard
Half of Lafayette lives in Denver or Austin.
Rosemarie Martinovic

Christine Kennedy
Incredible
James Broussard
You damn right Clifton is king of the Bayou
