Ryan Auer Celebrates John Weisend, June 20, 2007

Tune courtesy of Piano Man by Billy Joel
Its 12 o'clock on a Wednesday
Regular crowd shuffles in
There’s an old man in the audience,
Transferin' to Washington

Just say la-da-da-de-de-da
Sing us a song you’re the SLACerman
Sing us a song tonight
We’re all in the mood for a melody
And you’ve got us feelin' alright

Tune courtesy of Your Song by Elton John
If I was a physicist, but then again, no
Or a man who makes music in a traveling show
I know its not much but its the best I can do
My gift is my song and this ones for you

And you can tell everybody that I work at SLAC
It may be quite simple but now that I’m back
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is when I come to work
