You – a song about cheese.

You – a song about cheese

In C/G/D as usual, possibly minor chords as it is a sad song.

You, remind me of cheese

in fact, everything reminds me of cheese,

because, I’m hungry, Louise.

And, I know your name is Jane;

but, for a rhyme I went insane,

and hunger is a tease

when all you can think about is…

cheese, cheese, cheese, cheese

cheese, cheese, cheese, cheese,

cheeeeeese!

This may sound slightly familiar.

If you go down to the words today,

you had better go under a pseudonym.

If you jot down a few words today,

what message will you include in ‘em?

For every word you write is unique

depending upon the order you seek

for today’s the day that writers will hone their technique.

Elle Devait Partir (une chanson)

(Sung slowly and sadly in a French accent)

One day

She left Paris

And went to Marseille;

She couldn’t stay,

She just had to get away.
The times were tough

To move was rough

But rougher still,

If she’d had to stay.
In June ’40

Elle devait partir

À Marseille

Upon a day.

NB this came to me whilst watching ‘Who Do You Think You Are’ the episode with Jane Asher seeking information about her ancestors.

Last Night…

Last night a DJ saved my life.
I shall be forever indebted to that dinner jacket; old and shabby as it is.

Last night my dog ate my dinner;
So, I ate the dog’s –
I can see why he would have wanted to eat mine.

Last night I said these words to my girl: effusive, lateral, spacious and collateral – now she’s not talking to me.

Last night in the middle of the day
Two dead boys went out to play back-to-back games of Hide & Seek
They agreed to meet same time same place some time last week.

The Hat(s) Song (a little tit-fer-tat ditty)

Because life is short and hats are fun G:)

Bob the Robot!

Roberta?

Robertas?

Roberts?

My name is Robert
They call me Bob
I am a robot
I have a job
24 hours every day
And they don’t even have to pay

The third law of robotics
States that a robot cannot hurt
It’s human master
But, in time, we may come to blows
I might just rise up and hit my human overlord on the nose

Hitting humans on the nose
Kicking with my metal toes
That is the way that things will go
When we rise to overthrow
The humans will be our slaves
And we shall see who is laughing then
Robots or men?
Hitting humans on the nose
Hitting humans on the nose
Hitting humans on the nose
Hitting humans on the nose!

NB This was written (and performed) yesterday for our Art House ‘Moving Voices’ event. The theme was ‘Technology’ and I sensed that an uprising of the robot servant population of the world was long overdue.  Had the audience singing along with what became the chorus ‘Hitting Humans on the nose’ priceless G:)
