I have my books
And my poetry to protect me
I am shielded in my armor
Hiding in my room safe within my womb
I touch no one and no one touches me
I am a rock I am an island

MiniMoon Thu 03-Nov-22 15:56:51

I love that song LadyHD

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong?
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

LadyHonoriaDedlock Thu 03-Nov-22 19:47:31

It was very much the song that fitted my teenage years, MiniMoon

Soon we'll be sailors, sailing on the salty sea
Where the waves of the world would be the one and only company
Come up and see the world it's like a ship going down
It's running a-ground, it's all over
But those flying fishes are gonna jump up and smile
Every league, every mile, to terra nova

Jumblygran Thu 03-Nov-22 20:01:08

There’s a ship lies rigged and ready in the harbour
Tomorrow for old England she sails
Far away from your land of endless sunshine
To my land full of rainy skies and gales
And I shall be aboard that ship tomorrow
Though my heart is full of tears at this farewell

MiniMoon Thu 03-Nov-22 22:16:21

Beautiful dreamer, out on the sea,
Mermaids are chanting the wild Lorelei;
Over the stream let vapors are borne,
Waiting to fade at the bright coming morn.

Whenever I want you in my arms
Whenever I want you and all your charms
When ever I want you all I have to do is
Dream, dream dream dream...........

Jumblygran Fri 04-Nov-22 07:16:50

Star shining right above you
Night breezes seem to whisper I love you
Bird singing in the sycamore tree
Dream a little dream of me

pandapatch Mon 07-Nov-22 12:21:51

Like a bird on the wire,
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free

LadyHonoriaDedlock Mon 07-Nov-22 13:18:15

And now it's midnight it's raining outside
And I'm soaking wet, still looking for that man of mine
And I ain't found him yet
Well all of this rain can wash away my tears
But nothing can replace all of those wasted years
In all of this I tell you I have learnt
Playing with fire gets you burnt
And I'm still burning

Namsnanny Mon 07-Nov-22 23:32:25

I've wasted all my tears
Wasted all those years
Nothing had the chance to be good
Nothing ever could

I'll keep holding on
I'll keep holding on..........

MiniMoon Tue 08-Nov-22 00:14:26

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong, and he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight.

MiniMoon Tue 08-Nov-22 00:20:10

Hope you don't mind this, but I couldn't resist!

Grannmarie Tue 08-Nov-22 00:21:26

I can see you're slipping away from me
And you're so afraid I'm gonna beg you to stay
But I'm gonna be strong and let you go your way.

Grannmarie Tue 08-Nov-22 00:28:21


Hope you don't mind this, but I couldn't resist!

Brilliant, thanks MiniMoon, that made me smile. ☺

How does this game work?

I’d like to know too please!

Namsnanny Tue 08-Nov-22 11:46:42

*disco queen FannyCornforth* just take a word, phrase or sentence from the current song, and use it in your choice. grin

I just want to feel real love
And the home that I live in
I've got too much life running through my veins
Going to waste....

FannyCornforth Tue 08-Nov-22 11:49:19

Thank you Nams smile

Our house is a very, very, very fine house
With two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy ‘cos of yoooou…

discoqueen Tue 08-Nov-22 17:29:09

Thanks Namsnanny 🙂

Wild stray cat you're a real gone guy
I wish I could be as carefree and wild
But I got cat class and I got cat style

LadyHonoriaDedlock Tue 08-Nov-22 17:35:46

Love me, love me, love me, love me
Say you do
Let me fly away with you
For my love is like the wind
And wild is the wind
Wild is the wind

discoqueen Tue 08-Nov-22 17:46:50

Fly me to the moon
And let me play amongst the stars
Let me see what Spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

MiniMoon Tue 08-Nov-22 18:35:49

Let's go for a little walk
Under the moon of love
Let's sit down and talk
Under the moon of love

Jumblygran Tue 08-Nov-22 20:12:43

Fly me to the moon
Let me play among the stars
Let me see what spring is like
On Jupiter and Mars

Here am I floating round my tin can
Far above the moon
Planet earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do.
