on grammy nite...........

Begin the day

With a friendly voice

A companion, unobtrusive

Plays that song thats so elusive

And the magic music makes your morning mood

Off on your way

Hit the open road

There is magic at your fingers

For the spirit ever lingers

Undemanding contact

In your happy solitude

Invisible airwaves

Crackle with life

Bright antennae bristle

With the energy

Emotional feedback

On a timeless wavelength

Bearing a gift beyond price ---Almost free...

All this machinery

Making modern music

Can still be open-hearted

Not so coldly charted

Its really just a question

Of your honesty

One likes to believe

In the freedom of music

But glittering prizes

And endless compromises

Shatter the illusion

Of integrity

For the words of the profits

Are written on the studio wall,

Concert hall ---

Echoes with the sounds...

Of salesmen.
