Interesting think-piece in the times on the lyrics of Yip Harburg: “Harburg’s heroes may dream of something that will unravel every riddle, lead them to riches or that will usher in the “Finian” promise of that great “come-and-get-it day.” But is any of that really so earnestly to be desired? What if all those ishes really did come true? Uneasiness accompanies the exuberance.”
