Oh, there is definitely a song:
sung by Porgy(?) in Porgy and Bess, as I recall.
There's also this one Peder:
Nothin from nothin means nothin
Ya gotta have somethin if ya wanna dance with me.......
I was told....You'll never amount to nothing.
Will you still dance with me.
I'm not saying nothing neither.
The Sound of Nothing
(a little nothing, about nothing, by Libre)
The clap of one hand, still makes a small sound,
Try and you'll hear the air whirling around.
A grasshopper fart is quietly passed,
Yet the little gnats laugh, at the thunderous blast.
An owl in search of its unwary prey,
Hears the pulse of a mouse a half mile away.
But in space there's a void, unlike on the ground,
And thus there's no air, to carry a sound.
If you want to know, what silence sounds like,
It might be two asteroids, after they strike.
But the quietest sound, in the universe wide,
Is made by those two, when they fail to collide.
My hubby always says, "A mouse pissing on cotton sounds like nothing."
are you purposely trying to confuse me?????????
I will always dance with you
I would like an infinity of nothing. Should I take that back and say that there's nothing I want an infinity of, since my entire life would be wiped out by being granted an entire infinity of nothing. Same thing if I got and infinity of something - so long to everything else!
This is spookily similar to having a conversation with my son.
For some international flavour, here's a little Swedish nothing:
Ah, now an international smörgåsbord of nothing!
You people are really amazing. The complete and total amount of nothing happening is staggering. I'm floored by the skill and technique you people have accomplished in such little time.
I'm sure you'll say "It's really nothing."
And you, of course, will be correct.
A beautiful, beautiful thing.
Thank you all. For absolutely nothing.
Yep, pretty much.
So your back with us then? Not doing much trade on your own forum, huh?
I never left fuzzy ears.
Trade is going well. Thanks for askin'.
Guess what is in my right hand and I will reward you by giving what is in my left hand. And do you think you can guess what that has to do with nothing.
And at 50, the lower back.
I can hardly wait for 60 to see what's next.
Well, at 120 (at the very latest), it's... drum rolll... nothing!
Nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing.
Nothin nothin nothin nothin nothin nothin nothin nothin nothin nothin.
Nuthin nuthin nuthin nuthin nuthin nuthin nuthin nuthin nuthin nuthin.
Not anything not anything not anything not anythin not anything.
Not anythin not anythin not anythin not anythin not anythin.
Bunches of nothins bunches of nothins bunches of nothins.
A six-course banquet of nothing with a scoop of sod-all as a palate cleanser...
Ah, tiny Grasshopper, but It is not a peach-that-has-a-core, but rather an-onion-that-only-has-layers.
“I love talking about nothing. It is the only thing I know anything about.” (O.W.)
Nothing will come from nothing, know what they say? Cheer up, ye old bugger, go on, give us a grin. There you are, see?
