I listened to Paul Simon's new CD "Surprise" and the song "Sure Don't Feel Like Love." The lyrics for the first stanza of that song made a lot of sense to me.
I registered to vote today
Felt like a fool
Had to do it anyway
Down at the high school
Thing about the second line
You know, felt like a fool?
People say it all the time
Even when it's true
So, who's that conscience sticking on the sole of my shoe?
Who's that conscience sticking on the sole of my shoe?
Cause it sure don't feel like love
Actually, many of the songs were particularly topical, poetic, poignent, and bitingly political.
But the lines about registering to vote meant a lot to me because everybody has to take that first step.
