A Harlequin is a fool... Helplessly hoping her Harlequin hovers nearby... she's waiting for her foolish lover... LOVE this song.

Helplessly hoping her harleckin hovers...? Even if they pronounced it correctly, what does it mean? Evocative mumbo-jumbo.

I challenge any three singing siblings to create a more unified sound than these four unrelated singers produced! I learned a lot about harmony and blending growing up with CSN, and later CSN&Y!

Again, do we have to say wrong lyric?

I'd always wished I'd taken up guitar, and often thought I should have started a long time ago etc etc etc, then one day listening to this very song, I decided to finally get off my behind and begin (late 40's at the time). Life changing. If you think this song is wonderful, wait till you experience how it feels when you hear it coming out of your own fingers. Fabulous.
