"Candle in the Wind" An Interpretive Dance: (Performed by Bill McCreary, Rob Schick, Kerry Fraser, Greg Kimmerly, Pierre Champoux and Paul Stewart.)

Goodbye Norma Jean, Though I never knew you at all-

You had the grace to hold yourself-

While those around you crawled.

They crawled out of the woodwork-

And they whispered into your brain

They set you on the treadmill-

And they made you change your name.

And it seems to me you lived your life-

Like a candle in the wind;

Never knowing who to cling to-

When the rain set in.

And I would have liked to have known you-

But I was just a kid.

Your candle burned out long before-

Your legend ever did.

I say, your candle burned out long before-

Your legend ever di- i- i- i -id.

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin

That was really good- that said... I'm SO glad the actual hockey season is about to begin-

you really need something to write about

Disturbing, but good. I'm torn. And slightly traumatised.
