How many roads must a Quan walk down

Last night I had a dream about you
In this dream I'm dancing right beside you
And it looked like everyone was having fun
The kind of feeling I've waited so long

Don't stop, come a little closer
As we jam, the rhythm gets stronger
There's nothing wrong with just a little, little fun
We were dancing all night long

The time is right to put my arms around you
You're feeling right - you wrap your arms around too
But suddenly I feel the shining sun
Before I knew it, this dream was all gone

Ooh, I don't know what to do
About this dream and you
I wish this dream comes true

Why don't you play the game?

Why don't you play the game?

Question

Outside the house Mr. Simpson announced that Sally couldn't go to the meeting. He went on cleaning his blue Rolls Royce and she ran inside a-weeping. She got to her room and tears splashed the picture of the new Messiah. She picked up a book of her father's life and threw it on the fire.

The crowd went crazy as Tommy left the stage. Little Sally was lost for the price of a touch and a gash across her face. OOoooh! Sixteen stitches put her right and her Dad said "don't say I didn't warn ya." Sally got married to a rock musician she met in California.

Ooohhh-wheee, look at me
looking for some sympathy

Things are never good, things go from bad to weird
Hey ... gimme another scotch with my beer
I'm sad to say ... I feel the same today ... as I always do
Gimme a drink to relax me

Seven days make a week, on two of them I sleep
I can't remember what the heck I was doing
I got bruises on my leg ... from I can't remember when
I fell down some stairs, I was lyin' underneath the bottle

Ooohhhowheee, son of a b.

Label credit for writing the song was given to Chips lead singer Charles Johnson and Adam R. Levy. Levy, though, was the son of label owner Morris Levy, who was notorious for adding either his or his son's names to songwriting credits in order to claim partial, or in some cases all composer royalties on songs they did not write. There is no evidence that Morris or Adam ever wrote any songs.

The Chips were teenage friends in New York: Charles Johnson (lead vocal), Nathaniel Epps (baritone), Paul Fulton (bass), Sammy Strain and Shedrick Lincoln (tenors). "Rubber Biscuit" started life as Johnson's answer to the marching rhythms of the Warwick School For Delinquent Teenagers while he was an intern there.

When Josie Records heard the tune they signed the group and the record was issued in September 1956. Although it did not chart, "Rubber Biscuit" became an instant east coast radio favourite, and saw its performers touring alongside The Dells, The Cadillacs and Bo Diddley, but the momentum gained by their debut single was waning and the group broke up at the end of 1957. Only Sammy Strain went on to success in the music industry, as a member of Little Anthony & The Imperials from about 1961 to 1972, when he left to join The O'Jays. Strain left the O'Jays in 1992 to return to The Imperials, where he remained until his retirement in 2004.

Oh, on the Starship Enterprise
There's someone who's in Satan's guise,
Whose devil's ears and devil's eyes
Could rip your heart from you!

At first his look could hypnotize,
And then his touch would barbarize.
His alien love could victimize...
And rip your heart from you!

And that's why female astronauts
Oh very female astronauts
Wait terrified and overwrought
To find what he will do.

Oh girls in space, be wary,
Be wary, be wary!
Girls in space, be wary!
We know not what he'll do.

Routhier writes:

Now, back on the album "Empire Burlesque," Bob Dylan used a bunch of lines from movies, notably "I'll go along with this charade until I can think my way out," which came from the Humphrey Bogart movie "Tokyo Joe." Those same lines were recycled in the original Star Trek series episode "The Squire of Gothos," and many Dylan investigators mistook the source of Dylan's appropriation.

I remained hooked on the Bakula Star Trek Enterprise series after my case of flu, and have been watching them from time to time. After an epic third season, where Captain Archer saves the earth from the treacherous Xindi and sets the timeline of the universe back to its proper sequence, the crew take time off. In Season 4, Episode 3, "Home," Archer is a huge hero on earth and he goes mountain climbing with a colleague/ex-lover, to get away from the constant recognition. Sleeping under the stars, he wakes up from a nightmare. She asks him if he's all right, to which Archer replies, "I'm not even sure what all right means anymore."

Now, I don't have to tell Dylan fans where that line originated.  

[or maybe it's from a Danny Kaye flicker eh]

The ER poster "East of Jordan" translated Bob a while back, and inspired this newer x-lation, which is more literal:

Переулок потухших огней -- "Intersection of Extinguished Flames"
Desolation Row (Bob Dylan)

здесь торгуют открытками с виселиц
красят паспорт в коричневый тон
а салоны красоты полны матросами
в городе цирковой сезон

[…salon is full of sailors...in city is circus season…]

вот идет слепой комиссар
он попался в их сети дурмана
одна рука привязана к канатоходцу
другая что-то ищет в кармане
а мятежники неугомонны
они спешат убежать поскорей
как Леди и я этой ночью
с переулка потухших огней

Золушка, она так безрассудна
"рыбак рыбака...", - улыбается

[Cinderella smiles … "fish is like fish…]

и так держит руки в задних карманах
что сама Бэтти Дэвис смущается
но вот идет Ромео, он стонет:
"ты только моя, уж прости!"
и кто-то говорит: "ты заблудился, парень
похоже, тебе лучше уйти..."
и всего один звук, что остался
после отъезда врачей -
это Золушка заметает следы
в переулке потухших огней

сейчас луна почти спряталась
звезды начинают исчезать
и даже последняя гадалка
свои шмотки торопится убрать
и все, кроме Каина и Авеля
и того горбуна с Нотр Дама
занимаются любовью, другие же
ожидают от неба хоть грамма

[… making love, others hoping for if only a drop from the sky …]

а Добрый Самаритянин наряжается
он должен выглядеть всех модней
ведь он едет на карнавал этим вечером
в переулок потухших огней

вот Офелия стоит у окна
я боюсь за нее, мое ли это дело?
ей исполняется всего двадцать два
и она уже старая дева
для нее смерть - романтика
на ней пояс из чугуна

[Ophelia … on her is belt of cast iron …]

ее профессия - это ее религия
ее грех в том, что она одна

[her profession is her religion--her sin that she's alone …]

и хотя ее взгляд устремлен туда
где Ноева радуга все светлей
она день и ночь тусуется здесь -
в переулке потухших огней

Эйнштейн в наряде Робин Гуда
с памятью, запертой в сундук
проходил здесь час тому назад
с ним был ревнивый монк, его друг
он выглядел ужасно встревоженным
когда стрелял сигарету
затем он шел нюхать водосточные трубы
и повторять алфавит до рассвета
теперь вы врядли захотите встречаться с ним
хотя он и был знаменит с первых дней
своей игрой на электрической скрипке
в переулке потухших огней

Доктор Грязь, он хранит свой мир
внутри своей кожаной манжеты
но все его бесполые пациенты
пытаются взорвать всё это
его сиделка, местная неудачница
она ответственна за цианидовый склад
а также она держит карточки с надписью:
"помилуй его душу, брат!"

["Have mercy on his soul, brother!"]

и все они играют на свистульках
и ты легко услышишь их трель
если только оторвешь свой зад
с переулка потухших огней

через улицу протянут был занавес
здесь готовятся к знатному пиру
Призрак Оперы правит бал -
идеальный образ святого кумира
они с ложечки кормят Казанову
делая его еще более узнаваемым
затем они прикончат его самоуверенностью
после того, как отравят словами
и Призрак кричит на тощих девиц:
"убирайтесь прочь или будьте умней!
Казанова был наказан за вылазки
в переулок потухших огней"

к полуночи вся агентура
и сверхчеловеков отдел
вышли и скрутили каждого
кто знал больше, чем у них было дел
затем привели их на фабрику
где машина лишала сердец
крепко стянули ремнями их плечи
и тогда был кипящий свинец
брошен с вышек на землю клерками
у которых одна из затей -
следить, как бы никто не сбежал
с переулка потухших огней

слава Нептуну Нерона
Титаник отплыл на заре
и каждый на судне кричал:
"кто здесь на чьей стороне?"
Эзра Паунд и Т.С. Элиот
бились на капитанской башне
пока менестрели смеялись над ними
а рыбаки держали ромашки
там, где в море распахнуты окна
где русалки плывут всех быстрей
и никто не думает слишком долго
о переулке потухших огней

да, я получил твое письмо
(еще сломалась, помню, ручка у двери)

[Yes, I got your letter (then I broke my hand in the door)…]

ты спрашиваешь, как я поживаю
если это шутка, ты так и говори

[…if that was a joke, then say so …]

все те люди, которых ты вспомнила
да, я знаю их, они просто скоты

[all those people that you mentioned, yes I know them, they're just cattle …]

я давно уже перетасовал их лица
и назвал каждого из них от балды
сейчас, ты знаешь, я ведь плохо читаю
не шли мне эти письма, пожалей...
если только ты не отправляешь их
с переулка потухших огней
