We Got Silly On Absinthe, We Sat And Watched The Rain.

VOLUME THREE


We visited Prague in August, right when the world was opening up again. The weather was great. We only went because my wife's parents were going to be there and we wanted to meet up. We got the same Uber driver from the airport to Old Town that we did from Old Town to the airport (3 days later haha). We went to an Absintherie and had the most hilarious bartender ever. Like, he was a little manic with crazy eyes but laughed so much the whole bar just kept laughing with him. We got up early one of the days and explored the city before it woke up. Empty streets, that were very clean, Charles Bridge was essentially empty, which we found out later in the day is not always the case. We had beef stroganoff in Old Town Square outside under a big umbrella. It started to rain and our waiter was a Czech man who had lived in Chicago for most of his life. It felt like the city was just fresh off of a vacation. Feeling alive and vibrant. We look forward to heading back one day, definitely go if you get the chance. (and try an absinthe drink)




LYRICS


I didn't know what to expect

As we made our way into town

Remnants of a past regime

And a recent freedom found


A new made independence

A curtain torn in two

A people living their lives

However they decide they want to


Streets out of a fairytale

With a fresh coat of paint


We got silly on absinthe

We sat and watched the rain

We heard blues in a basement

And met up with old friends

For Prague she is a beauty

And I can't wait to see her again


Got up early to beat the crowds

Like we always try to do

Watched the city begin to stir

Found a cafe just for two


Saw Lennon's peaceful influence

Walked the Charles at the break of day

Met Czech man from Chicago

Saw a naked woman walking down the lane


Streets out of a fairytale

With a fresh coat of paint


We got silly on absinthe

We sat and watched the rain

We heard blues in a basement

And met up with old friends

For Prague she is a beauty

And I can't wait to see her again


For Prague she is a beauty

And I can't wait to see her again
