Kenilworth by Bill Lacey — In memory of the late, great Bill Lacey of Kenilworth, with a slight assist from Lerner & Loewe.
Alternate version of this song is posted on this page.
Bill Lacey was a dear friend of Doris & Jim Goese from 1972 until his death on September 5, 2008.
Bill was a graduate of Columbia University. He was awarded the Purple Heart and Silver Star in World War 2.
While in Kenilworth, Bill worked in advertising. He played the piano, which he learned by listening to his sister taking lessons.
This track, "Kenilworth," from his unfinished operetta called "Housework," was converted in loving memory from vinyl to CD by Jim Goese in 2012.
Lyrics: Kenilworth, by Bill Lacey, 1970
I know a place where care will never find you,
You contemplate the quiet satisfactions
The train goes to Chicago every morning
Though other people envy us they love us,
The people here succeed with hardly tryin',
I think I could be happy here forever
