"The Kids Are Alright"

Through the magic of the Wayback Machine, I was able to find the ancient I-94 Bar column where I quoted the additional lyrics (which I copied off his website) to "The Kids Are Alright" that Pete Townshend sang when I saw the 'orrible 'oo at Reunion in Y2K. They moved me to tears back when I was a youngster of 43, and they ring even truer today.

Never leave me
I can't live without you
I don't want you to go
I brought you here with my love, and my lust
And now as I grow old 
And lean toward the dust and flowers of death
I need to know that you'll be all right.
With me and without me.
