lyrics

Verse 1
Thin sheet of water,
separates my eyes from his gaze
Has a goodbye in those eyes
As it rains all around us
As it looks upon me,
Red rimmed and swimming
Unruly curls
Like a modern day beethoven!

Chorus
And the taxi awaits to take him to his plane
And they all trail him lugging out his bags in the rain
Trudging from one puddle to the other

Verse 2
Parting words of advice
To the youngest who smiles his broadest
Blue braces,glinting in the water
He runs up to him to be enfolded in a swinging bear hug
His students, his disciples, his friends!

Chorus 2
And the taxi awaits to take him to his plane
And they all trail him lugging out his bags in the rain
Trudging from one puddle to the other
As he flits in his excitement from one place unto another
and smokes the one last cigarette under the eaves
With his equals
As they watch on
(repeated)
