Seven ages of man
earlier tonight I saw a production of 'as you like it' by william shakespeare- there's a great soliloquy which starts 'all the world's a stage' and goes on to describe the seven ages of man... here's a somewhat loose retelling of it in quick rhyming lines.
used the so-called 'david crosby' open tuning here-- E B D G A D and played on a baby taylor travel guitar...
The seven ages of man, a mewling infant first
Second schoolboy dreams about to burst
Third a lover wooing with a song
Fourth a soldier fighting for right against wrong
Fifth a lawyer making his case collecting his fee
Sixth the elder statesman pruning the family tree
Seventh and last, the old man, downcast,
knowing he will not last, fading into the past
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
