On Armistice Day
The Philharmonic will play
But the songs that we sing
Will be sad
Shufflin' brown tunes
Hanging around

No long drawn blown out excuses
Were made
When I needed a friend she was there
Just like an easy chair

Armistice Day
Armistice Day
That's all I really wanted to say
"That song mainly meant, let's have a truce. I chose the title 'Armistice Day' because it's not even called 'Armistice Day' anymore. . . . I didn't really mean it to be specifically about the war. I just meant that I'm worn out from all this fighting, from all the abuse that people are giving each other and creating for each other." - Paul Simon
