I'm probably too young to identify with this song as much as I do, but, man; 'I'm an ordinary player in the key of C'. Listen:

I'm beginning what I hope will be a long and fruitful career in the human services tomorrow. I'll gratefully accept any encouragement and good will you have to offer. I'm a little nervous, but mostly excited. My wife has been working full time for the past two years so that I could go part-time at work and finish my degree. I'll never be able to adequately thank her for that, and for the opportunity to spend so much quality time with our kids over the past few summers.

I'm very lucky to have such a solid support base.

His will was broken by his pride and vanity. Guy always did know how to turn a phrase. Hadn't heard that one before Spence, thanks.

Good luck on the new gig.

Thanks for the support, guys.

Paul Simon is an American treasure. The best iteration of liberal, middle class humanism in pop music.

He's the folk singer for folks in the Midwest with a four year degree.
