Me And Mrs. Jones - Billy Paul - VAGALUME
Me and Mrs. Jones, we got a thing going on We both know that it's wrong strong to let it go now We meet every day at the same cafe Six-thirty. All I could remember of the lyric was that the guy had 'a thing' goin' on with Mrs Jones, and that they used to meet 'every day in the same cafe'. This didn't give. We both know that it's wrong,. but it's much too strong. to let it go now. We meet everyday, at the same café. and no one knows she'll be.
I remember as a boy having dreamed up at clouds a lot and having seen the cloud from both sides now, I suppose I shouldn't really be amazed by anything. I call my song "From Both Sides, Now.
Clouds and Both Sides Now. Did you ever used to watch that show called Star Trek? I just had a flash of this show, that I saw while I was singing this tune. It was the only show where Dr. Spock ever got any emotion, right? You remember that one? It was really great because They've been there for a while, they took some horses and they took some grain, they took a lot of that stuff, and they were going to experiment up there, maybe as an alternative planet, you know?

So they were up there working kind of scientifically and all of a sudden, a message comes to Dr. Spock and the Star Trekkers that this planet is being bombarded by some kind of rays which are, uh, not very good for any kind of animal, vegetable So, it's getting bombarded so they all go down to check it out.
First thing they notice is that there are no insects around, then they notice there are no animals around. And just when they're about ready to say that there are no people around, they discover this colony of people in the euphoric state, and not only that, when the doctor checks them out, every uh And they're in perfect heath.
Well, what happens is, the reason Dr. Spock suddenly becomes a compassionate-feeling creature is 'cause one day with the youngest and the prettiest member of the scientific team, of course, he's walking through a field and he comes upon a whole kind of row of sunflower-looking creatures.
And as he's walking through these sunflower-looking creatures, one of them explodes and shoots things all over him and then you see Dr. Spock lying down on the ground and looking up at the clouds--that's what made me think of this. He said to her, "Wow! I never looked at clouds like that before. Bernie Taupin wrote the song's lyrics after breakfast on the roof of 20 Denmark Street, London, where Elton worked for a music publishing firm as an office boy, inspiring the line: She composed and wrote the whole song in half an hour, and played it continuously until she could record it the same morning.
Nowadays, you'd just use your smartphone.
