Ahhhhh, it's time to relax,

And you know what that means,

A glass of wine, your favourite easy chair,

And of course this compact disc playing and your home stereo. So go on, indulge yourself,

That's right, kick off your shoes, put your feet up,

Lean back and just enjoy the melodies.

After all, music soothes even the savage beasts.

No. This was said by William Congreve. The full quote is, "Music hath charms to soothe the savage beast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak."
