Old Laughing Lady

Neil Young

Don’t call pretty Peggy,
she can’t hear you no more
Don’t leave no message
’round her back door.
They say the old laughing lady
been here before
She don’t keep time,
she don’t count score.

You can’t have a cupboard
if there ain’t no wall.
You got to move there’s
no time left to stall.
They say the old laughing lady
dropped by to call
And when she leaves,
she leaves nothing at all.

See the drunkard of the village
falling on the street.
Can’t tell his ankles
from the rest of his feet.
He loves his old laughing lady
’cause her taste is so sweet.
But his laughing lady’s loving
ain’t the kind he can keep.

There’s a fever on the freeway,
blacks out the night.
There’s a slipping on the stairway,
just don’t feel right
And there’s a rumbling
in the bedroom
and a flashing of light
There’s the old laughing lady,
everything is all right.


The last waltz with optimism
Just danced through the door
So light was its step that it’s passing
Hardly made a positive head turn

Walk Like A Giant

Neil Young 

Tried to have for long and strain
We were riding on a desert wind
We were pulling in the spiritual
Riding on the desert wind
We could see it in the distance
Getting closer every minute
We saw the lights and spiritual shining
Getting closer every minute
Then we skipped the rails, and we started to fail
And we folded you, and it’s not enough
Think about how close we came

I wanna walk like a giant on the land
I wanna walk like a giant on the land

Whenever I see the big fire coming,
Coming to burn down all my ideas
I try to hold down to my thinking, and remember how it feels
When I’m looking right in your eyes
And hearing your happy laugh
When I’m seeing your blue eyes shining
And hear your happy laugh
So the moment came, and the big sky rained and
And a pool of fire served in my desire

When I think about how good it feels
I wanna walk like a giant on the land
I wanna walk like a giant on the land


Spurs 2 Watford 0

A goal in each half from Dele Alli and Harry Kane ensured maximum points in a hard-fought encounter with Watford at Wembley Stadium on Monday evening.

It was a victory which sees us climb to within one point of third-placed Liverpool in the Premier League with a game in hand on the Reds and moves us five clear of Chelsea in fifth place with both teams having three matches left to play.

Just over a quarter-of-an-hour had gone when we opened the scoring, helped by a goalkeeping error from the Hornets’ Orestis Karnezis. The Greek international spilled Kieran Trippier’s cross and Christian Eriksen flicked the ball to Dele, who drilled through a flurry of legs and into an unguarded net.

But the visitors responded well and three fine saves from Hugo Lloris ensured we went in ahead at half-time. First he saved a one-on-one from Andre Gray, did likewise from Richarlison just before the interval before racing off his line to slide tackle the onrushing Abdoulaye Doucoure, who would have been in on goal had the skipper mistimed his challenge.

They proved to be vital saves as just three minutes into the second half, we went further ahead. Trippier was again involved, picking up the ball wide on the right and sending over a low cross which Kane tucked home for his 38th goal of the season, 27 of them coming in the league.

We almost added a third on 68 minutes when Jan Vertonghen headed a Trippier free-kick against the post with Kane unable to tap home the rebound, but Watford continued to threaten and could have scored moments later, only for Richarlison to fire Troy Deeney’s knock down way over the bar from 10 yards.

Substitute Moussa Sissoko could have wrapped it up late on but fired over the bar after an excellent through-ball from Kane.
