From - 03/02/15:

A small piece of rope climbed onto a barstool.

The bartender said he did not serve rope in his bar, and tossed it out to the street.

The rope asked a passerby to tie him into a knot, and then ruffle both ends.

The rope went back into the bar, the bartender looked down at him and said, "Hey aren’t you that same piece of rope I just tossed out?"

The rope responded: "No sir, I am a frayed knot.”

Just a Dream

Written and recorded by Jimmy Clanton, 1958
(b. 02 Sept 1940)

Just a dream, just a dream:
All our plans and our all schemes.
How could I think you'd be mine?
The lies I'd tell myself each time.

I know that we could never last;
We just can't seem to in the past.
Just a dream I dream in vain;
With you I'd only live in pain.

Your picture is always with me;
I can still hear that same mournful song.
And now I sit here crying;
Please leave me alone.

Why, why do I love you?
How can I live in misery?
I know that I won't forget you,
But now I know it's too late for me.
