The Rite For Pipkin Breezes

If I could dance like Fred Austere [Roland]

Or float notes like Sting Crosby [chaise]

I don't suppose I'd linger here [loaf]

I'd wonder: what could the way to Oz be? [Ethetran]

If I could pluck like Kylie Mingus [Beefy ]

Or fiddle like Michael Jackstone [jm]

I'd want insurance for my fingers [Roland]

Lizzie Boredom's gone and axed 'em [chaise]

If I could write like Bill Sheikh's Peer [jm]

Or chase curves like Isaac Lewd'n [asdf]

Lasciviously, I'd draw you near [jm]

And end the fuss'n and the feud'n [Beefy ]

If I could paint like Clawed Monet [jm]

Or run like Boris Johnson [loaf]

Who never rode to Mandalay [Grayman]

Though he legged it to Wisconsin [chaise]

Envoi [loaf]

Since Norah Jones ain't in my bones, [Apsley]

Anoushka Shankar bears my groans [Anon.]
