Paul Simon – There Goes Rhymin’ Simon

Rhymin'THE DANGLING PHONE CONVERSATION

ARTIE: (picks up ringing phone) Hello.

PAUL:  Hi, Artie. We need to talk. I think we should stop making records together.

ARTIE:  This is so sudden. Have you thought this through? Are you sure?

PAUL:  I’m absolutely sure. Actually, I’m going to do a solo album.

ARTIE:  (long pause) I understand. (another long pause) Have you decided on a title for your solo album?

PAUL: Yeah, it’s called There Goes Balding Paul-ding.

ARTIE: (yet another long pause) Hmmm.

PAUL: What, don’t you like?

ARTIE:  It’s fine, but I was just thinking that maybe you should just call your first solo album simply Paul Simon, it makes a more definitive statement, that way you can save There Goes Balding Paul-ding for your second one.

PAUL: Perhaps you’re right, I’ll think about it.

ARTIE: Okay, see you later.

PAUL: Or not. (hangs up)
