    Drop On By

    Drop On By   -- Rosler, Valentine, Gately   

    Performed by Jimmy Norman. Peter on piano, Bobby Mallach on sax     

    It’s springtime in the city

    I sit at home

    The streets are one big party

    But I prefer here alone

    And besides

    You mentioned you might

    Drop On By

     

    Now I had to buy some flowers

    Had to clean up this mess

    It’s time I had some wine chilled

    'Bout time these pants were pressed

    And besides

    You mentioned you might

    Drop On By

     

         But if you do you do

         If you don’t you don’t

         No it won’t matter much to me

     

         We could burn on this couch

         In a hot romance

         Or I’ll just sit here watching baseball

         On my color t.v.

     

    I always play old records

    That cry for slow dance

    Arrange grapes and candles

    To practice elegance

    And besides

    You mentioned you might

    Drop On By

    Be in the neighborhood

    Yes besides

    You mentioned you might

    Drop On By

    To Whom It May Concern original demo

    To Whom It May Concern---Rosler, Valentine

    (from Ricky Walter "Touch Their Hearts" and then covered by RIFF ("To Whom It May Concern" on EMI/SBK)

    To whom it may concern

    To someone in the future

    today is filled with sorrow

    I wonder if you’ve heard

     

                that He preached love and kindness

                but many feared his word

     

    is your time just as cruel as ours

    To Whom It May Concern

     

     

    To Whom It May Concern

    to hearts that still are caring

    I pray that somehow from all this

    will be a lesson learned

     

                that where there’s greed and hatred

                sin will always burn

     

    and I will try to spread His word

    To Whom It May Concern

     

               He preached love

                and you as well should spread his word

                To Whom It May Concern
