I'll Never Be Able To Listen To This Song The Same Way Again

This morning on my local oldies station, "Bad Moon Rising" by CCR came on. It spooked me quite frankly, in the wake of Katrina. The lyrics give me a chill.

"I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin’.
I see bad times today.

Chorus:Don’t go around tonight,
Well, it’s bound to take your life,
There’s a bad moon on the rise.

I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.

Chorus
All right!

Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.

Chorus
Chorus."
