In Memorium

Laura Nyro
October 18, 1947 - April 8, 1997

Laura, I know that maybe this is the wrong, wrong time
But Laura where did that magic go
It’s so hard, it’s so cold down here
Did you have to leave me behind?
I wish that I could make it
But how I love to shuffle (how I love to shuffle)
Baby let’s swing
Now I love to shuffle
Ever since I heard you sing (since I heard her sing)

-- Todd Rundgren, "Baby Let's Swing"
