Subject: RE: Your song for the end of the world -July 4th
Say, Roger, when did you move to Oz? I think it's still July 3 in England.
So you folks in Australia can let the rest of us know if it's true, right? D'you remember this Beyond the Fringe routine about the end of the world, these religious group sitting on some godforsaken ridge chanting "Now is the end of the world"? Closes with the line, "Oh well, fellows; same time next year?"
Think I'd pick Malvina Reynolds:
"This ol' world is mean and cruel
But still I love it like a fool;
This world, this world,
This world.
