Michael Cooney RECORDINGS. 2. Front Hall Records put all but six of the songs from my two LPs on their label, "Singer of Old Songs" (1975) and "Still Cooney After All These Years" (1979), onto one CD, "Singer of Old Songs". I now own it and have new copies on my own label. 3. My first LP, "The Cheese Stands Alone" (1968) has some good songs for kids.
Michael Brecker played the saxophone on this track. He can also be heard on James Taylor's "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" and Dan Fogelberg's "Same Old Lang Syne.

Four in the morning Crapped out Yawning Longing my life away I'll never worry Why should I? It's all gonna fade. Now I sit by my window And I watch the cars I fear I'll do some damage One fine day But I would not be convicted By a jury of my peers Still crazy after all these years Still crazy Still crazy Still crazy after all these years.
