It’s taken too long, let’s cue the music to send this guy off, shall we?
Let go, let the world know you’re alive
Let the world know you believe
Let the world know you have love to give
Go tell it in the city
Go tell it on the mountains
Go tell about it til they hear!!
Canto De Ossanha (Let Go) by Astrud Gilberto. From the LP “September 17, 1969” Released: 1970. Track 5.
