April 17, 2006 -- WEBSTER Hall's interviewer Baird Jones knows how to ask even the most delicate questions. Jones chatted up '80s pop star Cyndi Lauper at Stereo recently at a bash for her Broadway turn in "The Threepenny Opera," and recalled reading a 2004 Boston Globe piece about a bird relieving itself in her mouth during an outdoor concert. Jones asked Lauper about the incident, and she explained: "It is not true that a flying bird once pooped in my mouth when I was singing in a concert. It did not go in my mouth. It went on my lower lip. I could not taste it. I just wiped it off . . . I actually considered it a good-luck sign."
But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
