Song without Dessert

People are crazy and times are strange,
someone left the cake out in the rain.
I wake up to the sound of music,
"Bye, bye Miss American Pie",
with nothing on my tongue but - a broken Hallelujah.
And humans are hungry for worlds they can't share.

Bob Dylan, "Things have Changed"
Jimmy Webb, "MacArthur Park"
Paul McCartney, "Let it Be"
Don McLean, "American Pie"
Leonard Cohen, "Hallelujah "
Joni Mitchell, "Song to a Seagull"

(Grateful to the musicians whose lyrics I lifted for this cento.)
