From: The Shambles
Date: 29 Jun 99 - 12:05 PM

According to Nostradamus, the 16th century French astrologer and physician, the world is due to come to an end on July 4th 1999.

Apart from Skeeter Davis, singing 'The End Of The World' and Nostradamus's own version of 'Ho Ho Ho, Who's Got The Last Laugh Now', what would be your choice to mark this occasion and be the last song the world ever heard?

I think my vote has to be for Monty Python's, 'Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life'.

Once Was The Time of Man - performed by the Limelighters, circa 1960, can't remember the author

Chorus: Once there were trees and a river.
Once there was grass where you stand.
Once there were songs about rights instead of wrongs.
Once was the time of Man.

Grass doesn't grow on the hillside.
Trees shrink and die in the sun.
No place to hide my little baby's eyes
From the damage the dead have done.

(Chorus)

They didn't know in the old times,
The earth and the seas were to share.
They didn't know in the old times,
For there...
Once were trees and a river.
Once there was grass where you stand.
Once there were songs about rights instead of wrongs.
Once was the time of Man.

Once was the time of Man.

Ah, the ever-brilliant Tom Leherer. My favorite of his -- in keeping with the stream-of-consciousness nature of my recent postings and having nothing to do with the end of the world -- is "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park." Lovely little ditty for this time of the year.

As for the end o' world stuff, maybe "Fixing to Die Rag" from Country Joe McDonald. (Whom I had the displeasure to interview some years back in a small roadhouse in Albuquerque and found to be most unpleasant, by the way.)

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.

Bill D mentioned "Til the end of the world comes round..." and said "bluegrass, I think." It's an old Flatt and Scruggs song. Know any new Flatt and Scruggs? If all this comes true it won't matter.

Geoff Muldaur recently released a cd and the final track is a funerasl march from New Orleans, "Just a Little While"

"Soon this life will be all over And our pilgrimage will end Soon we'll take our heavenly journey Be at home again with friends.

Heaven's gates are stanmding open Waiting for our entrance there Some sweet day we're going over (July 4, 1999??) All the beauties there to share.
