You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quite still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
-- Franz Kafka

 Songs
Honor & Cherish


Listen to Honor and Cherish here.

Judy is seventeen
Basketball beauty queen
and Sam plays a center on the team
and a trumpet in the band

Judy lies awake at night
thanks the Lord for sending Mr. Right
Daydreams in History...
writing "Mrs. Samuel Cline"

Got married right out of school
Sweet Judy made the young boys drool
as she swept up the aisle
to meet her handsome leading man

It was noon on a summer's day
The church was packed
the organ softly played
The minister smiled at them
these two could hardly wait

To answer I do and
pledge to honor and cherish
promise love and devotion
till death they would never separate
the kindness of heaven
was shining down on them that day
and honor & cherish was an easy vow to make

Years went and children came
Sam's job sometimes took him far away
now and then they felt that distance
growing in between

Lovemaking everyday
gave way to Saturdays, and then
once a month, like some tribute
to the lovers they had been

Whatever happens to honor & cherish
to love and devotion
till death we will never separate?
The kindness of strangers gets
mistaken for true love, and
honor & cherish for just words
we used to say...

Judy met a man one day
He said the kinds of things
Sam used to say
And listened to her yearnings over
lost and loving ways

He made her feel pretty again
It'd been so long,
it swept her heart from him
the lover she'd vowed to
honor & cherish all her days

Whatever happened to honor & cherish
to love and devotion
till death we would never separate?
The kindness of a stranger gets
mistaken for true love, and
honor & cherish for just words
we used to say...
