(YouTube)   This song is called "Alice's Restaurant," and it's about Alice, and the restaurant, but "Alice's Restaurant" isn't the name of the restaurant, that's just the name of the song, and that's why I call this song "Alice's Restaurant"   (youtube.com) divider line 27

syrynxx: . I'd rather hear "It's a Small World".


At any given moment, you are only a whim away from singing the refrain to The Lion Sleeps Tonight.

A whim away.

LemSkroob: auditory garbage.

I would rather listen to bieber.


Well, that says a lot about you. Whether this is a legendary song or not, it's got more content than anything that little lesbian put out.

moops: The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down Of the big lake they called 'Gitche Gumee' ...

And the old chiefs still smile and chuckle awhile, 'cause the white man is really quite screwy.
See they took a big boat and set her afloat, said boys let's cross this big water.
Load her up to the top with them rusty red rocks, and then she'll float like an otter.


The weather got rough but the men they were tough, no cellular phones they were dialin'
They looked al around for to run 'er aground but they couldn't find Gilligan's Island.

So they held their breath and they sank to their death and the priest re-wrote his liturgy.
About those dumb guys who gave up their young lives for the great cause of metallurgy.

ImNotFatImFluffy: Can someone explain this to me? My wife tells me she has to listen to it every thanksgiving and apparently it is/was a family tradition to hear it. Every time i try to listen to it, my eyes glaze over. I'm not saying it's bad, i just have a horrible attention span and listening to some guy rambling on about whatever doesn't really hold my interest. Why is this song apparently such a huge thanksgiving song for people?


Well, it all started about two thanksgivings ago...

I hate this song. I'd rather hear "It's a Small World".

it's a world of laughter, a world or tears
its a world of hopes, its a world of fear
theres so much that we share
that its time we're aware
its a small world after all

CHORUS:
its a small world after all
its a small world after all
its a small world after all
its a small, small world

There is just one moon and one golden sun
And a smile means friendship to everyone.
Though the mountains divide
And the oceans are wide
It's a small small world

CHORUS:
its a small world after all
its a small world after all
its a small world after all
its a small, small world

I like the song as a Thanksgiving pop song, but Arlo just seems like a bit goofy. Riding his dad's coat tails by playing pop "folk" in one of he trendiest sections of New York. Just seems kinda superficial.

Neat song, though.

HotWingAgenda: KaiC: ImNotFatImFluffy: Can someone explain this to me? My wife tells me she has to listen to it every thanksgiving and apparently it is/was a family tradition to hear it.

I'm not saying it's bad, i just have a horrible attention span and listening to some guy rambling on about whatever doesn't really hold my interest. Why is this song apparently such a huge thanksgiving song for people?

It's basically a protest song using exaggeration and humor to retell true events. I wasn't born for several years after it came out, but I definitely look at it as a very specific slice of the 60's peace movement. I guess people just get attached to songs for different reasons, but when I hear it, I just envision some dopey hippy kid trying to have a nice Thanksgiving with friends and it spirals into silliness.

How on earth does that translate to a traditional holiday song passed down for three generations? I'm seriously asking, because I've never heard of this phenomenon outside of Fark.


I never heard of this song before I heard it on WFBQ in Indianapolis, but now I listen to it a couple times every Thanksgiving even if I'm not home.

I introduced it to my co-driver today. He had thought it was funny but I had to explain a few of the references because he's not as much into history as I am. Today I heard for the first time the newer version where Jimmy Carter's son related finding a copy of his album in the White House library, presumably opened and listened to by Nixon. That part took a lot of explaining, since he wasn't really aware of either Nixon or Carter.

The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down Of the big lake they called 'Gitche Gumee' The lake, it is said, never gives up her dead When the skies of November turn gloomy

With a load of iron ore twenty-six thousand tons more Than the Edmund Fitzgerald weighed empty. That big ship and true was a bone to be chewed When the gales of November came early.

The ship was the pride of the American side Coming back from some mill in Wisconsin As the big freighters go, it was bigger than most With a crew and good captain well seasoned

Concluding some terms with a couple of steel firms When they left fully loaded for Cleveland And later that night when the ship's bell rang Could it be the north wind they'd been feelin'?

The wind in the wires made a tattle-tale sound And a wave broke over the railing And every man knew, as the captain did too, T'was the witch of November come stealin'.

The dawn came late and the breakfast had to wait When the Gales of November came slashin'. When afternoon came it was freezin' rain In the face of a hurricane west wind.

When suppertime came, the old cook came on deck sayin'. Fellas, it's too rough to feed ya. At Seven P.M. a main hatchway caved in, he said (2010 lyric change by Gordon Lightfoot: At Seven P.M., it grew dark, it was then he said,) Fellas, it's been good t'know ya

The captain wired in he had water comin' in And the good ship and crew was in peril. And later that night when his lights went outta sight Came the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Does any one know where the love of God goes When the waves turn the minutes to hours? The searchers all say they'd have made Whitefish Bay If they'd put fifteen more miles behind her.

They might have split up or they might have capsized; May have broke deep and took water. And all that remains is the faces and the names Of the wives and the sons and the daughters.

Lake Huron rolls, Superior sings In the rooms of her ice-water mansion. Old Michigan steams like a young man's dreams; The islands and bays are for sportsmen.

And farther below Lake Ontario Takes in what Lake Erie can send her, And the iron boats go as the mariners all know With the Gales of November remembered.

In a musty old hall in Detroit they prayed, In the Maritime Sailors' Cathedral. The church bell chimed till it rang twenty-nine times For each man on the Edmund Fitzgerald.

The legend lives on from the Chippewa on down Of the big lake they call 'Gitche Gumee'. Superior, they said, never gives up her dead When the gales of November come early!
