Burt Bacharach's answer to the credit crunch

And he sang it so beautifully tonight, made us think again about those words.
Thanks to Dana for spotting the tickets were on sale.

What's it all about, Alfie?
Is it just for the moment we live?

What's it all about when you sort it out, Alfie?
Are we meant to take more than we give
Or are we meant to be kind?

And if only fools are kind, Alfie,
Then I guess it's wise to be cruel.

And if life belongs only to the strong, Alfie,
What will you lend on an old golden rule?
As sure as I believe there's a heaven above, Alfie,
I know there's something much more,
Something even non-believers can believe in.
I believe in love, Alfie.
Without true love we just exist, Alfie.
Until you find the love youve missed you're nothing, Alfie.

Burt was 80 this year: way to go.
