Interesting questions

Posted by Sphinx on August 11, 2003

1.In "Hotel California", the Eagles sing, "What a nice surprise, bring your alibis!"
How could a surprise be "nice"?

2.IN "Love changes everything" (a musical sing), the lyrics say,
"Off into the world we go, planning futrues shaping year"
How the understand "shaping year"?

3. In the film "A.I", I saw these excerpts from one of Yeats' s poems (http://www.moonchild.ch/Library/poetry/StolenChild.html):

Come! O, human child!
To the waters and the wild,
With a fairy hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping
than you can understand.

Could you introduce a little of this poem, what is it about and what is the mood of it?

Great Thanks!
