There’s a game they play in the summertime
There’s a game they play when it’s hot outside
And I wonder why
They left me here in Merrittville
~From the song “Merritville” (Dream Syndicate)

You want to take a glass a water, turn the water into wine
Don’t call it a miracle, it happens all the time
You missed the part where the heavens start to bend?
Wait a couple minutes, it’ll happen again
~Here come the Miracles (Steve Wynn)
