The sentiment of the song is unimpeachable, but speaking about a "Negrito" probably isn't kosher in this day and age. I shouldn't have mentioned it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm PaulRobeson1920:

JOSHU asked the teacher Nansen, "What is the true Way?"

Nansen answered, "Everyday way is the true Way."

Joshu asked, "Can I study it?"

Nansen answered, "The more you study, the further from the Way."

Joshu asked, "If I don't study it, how can I know it?"

Nansen answered, "The Way does not belong to things seen: nor to
things unseen. It does not belong to things known: nor to things
unknown. Do not seek it, study it, or name it. To find yourself on it, open yourself wide as the sky."

@djsheilab: Related to both music and weeks is Billy Crystal's one-man show (which I saw some years ago on Broadway) called 700 Sundays. Crystal describes his youth with his father, Jack Crystal, who, to Quote Wikipedia, "owned and operated the Commodore Music Store, founded by Crystal's grandfather, Julius Gabler. Crystal's father was also a jazz promoter, a producer, and an executive for an affiliated jazz record label, Commodore Records, founded by Crystal's uncle, musician and songwriter Milt Gabler."

Billy's father died after 700 Sundays with him (about 13-14 years).
