Old man (in the street today)

I saw an old man

walking down the street today;

he was a little unsteady

on his feet today;

he was going round the road

to see a mate,

to have a chat

about this and that.

Man Goes … (a song)

Vox: There are more songs about questions than there are songs about answers. For example: How deep is your love? Where is the love? Is this love? What’s love got to do with it? Why am I in love with a German Film Star (I once saw in a film)?

And the answers to those question songs: Baker Street; Our House; Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight); Sweet Home Alabama; and Wild Thing, or the like.

Anyway, here is a question song for you.

Man goes in a fruit shop …

Gmaj

… what does he do then?

Monday Comes – a song

Monday comes at no request

I tried to stop it

I did my best

I tried to keep the weekend going

for one more day;

but nothing I could do

nothing I could say

would keep that day at bay…

would keep that day away.

Can’t Elope

It has often been sung that…

‘You can’t elope with a cantaloupe,

especially if you’re making soup,’

But only by me.

The phone rings – #DialogueForAPlay

SFX the phone rings

SD DC Acey picks it up

DC Acey: Hello. (Listens) Okay, thanks.

PC Leaves: Who was it?

DC Acey: Control.

PC Leaves: What did they say?

DC Acey: They’ve found Dud.

PC Leaves: Yay!

DC Acey: That’s a little inappropriate.

PC Leaves: It is?

DC Acey: Yes, in the circumstances.

PC Leaves: But you said they said that they said that they had found Dud.

DC Acey: They have… but Dud’s Dead.

PC Leaves: Dud’s Dead?

DC Acey: That’s what they said.

PC Leaves: Dud, he’s dead.

DC Acey: That’s what I said

SD into the song ‘Dud, he’s Dead’.

Nothing means nothing (from a song that I am working upon).

Nothing means nothing to some people,

And some people mean nothing to me.

Hole

There’s a hole in my sock –

yes, there is.

I don’t know how it got there –

but, there it is.

I’ll hide it with a shoe

if it’s all the same to you –

there’s a whole,

lot of explaining,

unless I do.

Tether – a song

So, there I was

at the end of my tether

looking backwards

no more forwards

and not concerned about

the weather.

.

Now it may rain

or the Sun might shine,

the skies become the colour

of elderberry wine;

but, I don’t care

what is up there,

I’ve reached the end of the line …

the end of my tether.

.

And at the very end

I’ll turn to you, my friend,

as you watch me cry,

and I’ll say ‘Goodbye.’

“What?!”

“Big plonk,

Little plonk,

Cardboard box

Looks like a goose,

And smells like a fox.”

.

“What?!”

Clin Jinz

I put my Clin Jinz on for you;

wanted to be a smarty

for the people party;

where we will bop

until we drop

drink lashings of Soda Pop,

and hop

hop

hop hop hop;

because, that’s what you do

at the hop – isn’t it?
