Hi Dar,

This one may have been hiding in plain sight for some who were
giving this consideration. The song is "Going Home." The lines are:

I love to speak with Leonard
He's a sportsman and a shepherd
He's a lazy bastard
Living in a suit

Hi,

Dar and Anny, thanks.

Forum members are invited to come up with song hunt questions.
Who'll be first? In the meantime, here's another: There are at least
two songs with botanical content. Can you name them?

I'm off-line the next two days. I'll stop in to see how the "hunt" went when I get back.

I thought of 3 right away (if I correctly understand your term "botanical content):

Did I Ever Love You: "the lemon trees blossom/the almond trees wither"
So Long Marianne: "deep in the green lilac park"
Everybody Knows: "and a long stem rose"

Interesting game.

To add to Mrs. Dove's suggestions:

- Suzanne: tea and oranges; flowers; seaweed
- Come Healing: O longing of the branches, To lift the little bud
- Light As The Breeze: the wind going wild in the trees
- A Tousand Kisses Deep (Recitation): I loved you when you opened, Like a lily to the heat
- Diamonds in the Mine: the trees are burning in your promised land; there are no grapes upon the vine
- The Window: Like the rose on its ladder of thorns
- The Traitor: the Rose of High Romance
- Take This Waltz: In the cave at the tip of the lily; your lilies of snow; with the photographs there, and the moss; The hyacinth wild on my shoulder

If I may be so bold as to offer one, here goes:

There are two songs containing lyrics which suggest that there is something/someone which has royal sovereignty over the non-physical aspect of our being.

Is "Lady Midnight" one of the songs?

Thank you for your guess, dar, but no, Lady Midnight is not one of the songs I'm thinking of.

How about Our Lady of Solitude?

I think one of the songs has to be 'Heart with no Companion' ('the soul without a king').
