Mucca Pazza performing at the Festival Internatonal de Jazz de Montréal, June 30, 2013

Used to dance the night away,
Now, can’t even sleep one through,
After four hours sleep, up
I get to glean the gossip
From the birds before dawn,
So I face the day wanting
Everything, but prepared for
Nothing,
And rarely disappointed.
