"I've been driving around. / Can't believe I'm getting older." Yet another ID-this-song question.

"I've been driving around. / Can't believe I'm getting older." Looking for a vaguely Red-House-Painters-sounding song with these lyrics that some coworkers of mine used to play. This would have been around 2001, in SE Michigan.

What is Free Translator by the Books based on?

The Books have a song called "Free Translator" (YouTube link) in which the somewhat nonsensical lyrics started out as a "very well known folk song", but were passed through free web translators again and again until they became something completely different. Does anyone know/can anyone figure out what the original song was? It will be harder than it sounds. The answer does not appear to be on the internet yet...

Song Featuring a Funny Name?

What is the song from the 1960s or so with the funny male name in it? I was explaining to some friends the other day that when I was a kid I thought Simon & Garfunkel was one guy, Simon N. Garfunkel - a funny name like that funny man's name in some song from around the same time (sixties or seventies, but it could have been a fifties song). I can't think of the name or the song, though. Anyone?

Help me remember this song!

The song is called something like Callie's 'Song' (or Kallie, Kylie, Caylie etc.), or possibly Callie's Boat instead of 'Song'. I think it's Irish & it's lovely. It's about a boy who takes his little boat out on the sea - the only refrain I can recall is 'Callie loves the sea'. Thanks!
