Raised on the Good Book Jesus till I read between the lines
Surely one of the greatest songs EVER. This one works almost every time it is covered, but now you can hear the original. "Stony End" by Laura Nyro - available via Number One Songs In Heaven . If you are a pop baby who doesn't know this song, hop on it!
How catchy is the chorus? (I have added some emphasis to the lyrics...)
Goin' down the stoney end
I never wanted to GO
Down the stoney ennnnd!
Mama, let me start all o-o-over
Mama, cradle me againnnnnnnnn
I will admit I like Babs Streisand's version because of the way she squeals MAMA! at the end.
