about

Written in December 2001, and dedicated to George Harrison and Michael Palin.

lyrics

If I earned the fortune of choice
And I could make only one wish
I'd spend my decision fulfilling my vision
And pass a good time with my friends

There's two guests whose presence I'd bless
To sit at my table and talk
George played a tune while Mike played the fool
Though their paths and mine haven't crossed

[chorus 1]
They've both been a-traveling
Enigmas unraveling
Scouting the landscape for the source of the soul
Their wisdom would fill me, I'd not ask for more
If I could have dinner with Michael and George

They've seen all, without and within
Everything ventured and gained
George dug the earth, Mike circled around it
Collecting a treasure unseen

[repeat chorus]

They'd tell me the meaning of life
I'd feast on the insight and wit
While George calmly muses, and Michael enthuses
I'd give thanks for friends I've just met

But one day, George left this world
Leaving the stories untold
George reached nirvana, and Mike's getting older
And I'm spinning visions no more

[chorus 3]
They're both done a-traveling
Enigmas unraveling
Scouting the landscape for the source of the soul
Their wisdom won't fill me, I won't get no more
I'll never have dinner with Michael and George

Now my wish is gone with the time
For all things must pass away
So I'll sit at my table, and look out my window
And search for a place beyond pain

[chorus 4]
Now I will go traveling
Enigmas unraveling
Scouting the landscape for the source of the soul
The wisdom will fill me, I won't need no more
Someday I'll have dinner with Michael and George
