Had not heard "12:30" in a long time!



The Mamas and Papas were a very popular quartet many summers ago.


From left to right: Denny Doherty, Cass Elliott, a.k.a. Mama Cass, Michelle and John Phillips, the tall one with the hat! (Michelle is the only surviving member of the group. Cass died accidentally. Denny and John died of cancer recently!)


John Phillips wrote most of their big songs. They had hits like "California Dreamin" and "Monday Monday".


However, my favorite was always "12:30":


"I used to live in New York City
Every thing there was dark and dirty
Outside my window was a steeple 
With a clock that always said 12:30
Young girls are coming to the canyon
And in the morning I can see them walking
I can no longer keep my blinds drawn 
And I cant keep myself from talking.
At first so strange to feel so friendly 
To say good morning and really mean it
To feel these changes happening in me 
But not to notice till I feel it.
Young girls are coming to the canyon 
And in the morning I can see them walking
I can no longer keep my blinds drawn 
And I cant keep myself from talking.
Cloudy waters cast no reflection 
Images of beauty lie there stagnant
Vibrations bounce in no direction 
And lie there shattered into fragments.
Young girls are coming to the canyon 
And in the morning I can see them walking
I can no longer keep my blinds drawn
And I cant keep myself from talking."
