Take care, please, take care

Take care not to hurt yourself
Beware of the need for help
You might need too much
And people are such
Take care, please, take care

Some people read idea books
And some people have pretty looks
But if your eyes are wide
And all words aside
Take care, please, take care

This sounds a bit like goodbye
In a way it is I guess
As I leave your side
I've taken the air
Take care, please, take care
Take care, please, take care

R.I.P Alex Chilton.  You saved us all.

It's a very suitable tribute,and those lyrics seem somewhat prescient now.

I drove around yesterday in the warm sunshine, windows rolled down with "#1 Record" playing at louder than normal decibel levels in my car. I just wanted to soak it in and make it part of my day, perhaps experiencing a taste of the divine. Music can sometimes dot his, and Alex Chilton had an ability to craft a lot of vibrancy into a 3 minute rock song.
He will be missed.
