Yes, I would if I only could...

Meaningful music, has become so rare to come by these days. Anything meaningful, rather.
For now, singing my song by Simon n Garfunkel for the moment-

EL CONDOR PASA (IF I COULD)

I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely would

Away, I'd rather sail away
Like a swan that's here and gone
A man gets tied up to the ground
He gives the world its saddest sound
Its saddest sound

I'd rather be a forest than a street
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would
I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely would

Would you believe I was thinking of putting this song up in the 'About me' section on my orkut profile???

Although I must paraphrase:

I'd rather be a dolphin than a whale.

I'd rather feel wet sand beneath my feet.

Damn we never sang this together in college, or even on that unforgettable khandala trip.

middle east sand has got to you, hasn't it? no wondr, wet sand instead of ground :P kidding ofcourse!
