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

pandapatch Wed 16-Nov-22 12:37:33

Here I go again on my own
Goin' down the only road I've ever known
Like a drifter I was born to walk alone
And I've made up my mind
I ain't wasting no more time

LadyHonoriaDedlock Wed 16-Nov-22 13:41:06

Well I left my happy home
To see what I could find out
I left my folk and friends
With the aim to clear my mind out
Well I hit the rowdy road
And many kinds I met there
And many stories told me on the way to get there

dayvidg Wed 16-Nov-22 17:19:18

I awoke this morning
Love laid me down by the river
Drifting I turned on up stream
Bound for my forgiver
In the giving of my eyes to see your face
Sound did silence me
Leaving no trace
I begged to leave, to hear your wonderous stories

baubles Wed 16-Nov-22 18:14:40

Tell me again
When I've been to the river
And I've taken the edge off my thirst
Tell me again
We're alone and I'm listening
I'm listening so hard that it hurts
Tell me again
When I'm clean and I'm sober
Tell me again
When I've seen through the horror
Tell me again
Tell me over and over
Tell me that you want me then

dayvidg Wed 16-Nov-22 20:15:45

Why can't we not be sober?
Just want to start this over
And why can't we drink forever?
I just want to start this over

MiniMoon Wed 16-Nov-22 23:56:28

We'll drink a drink a drink
To lily the pink the pink the pink
The saviour of our human race
For she invented, medicinal compound
Most efficasious in every case.

LadyHonoriaDedlock Thu 17-Nov-22 18:59:56

I met her in a club down in old Soho
Where you drink champagne and it tastes just like Coca-Cola
C-O-L-A, Cola
She walked up to me and she asked me to dance
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said, "Lola"
L-O-L-A, Lola

dayvidg Thu 17-Nov-22 20:12:18

Well, he walked up to me and he asked me if I wanted to dance
He looked kinda nice and so I said I might take a chance
When he danced he held me tight
And when he walked me home that night
All the stars were shining bright
And then he kissed me

baubles Thu 17-Nov-22 20:19:13

Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
Dance me through the panic till I'm gathered safely in
Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
Dance me to the end of love
Dance me to the end of love

dayvidg Thu 17-Nov-22 22:47:34

Because I'm still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I'm still in love with you
On this harvest moon

Grannmarie Thu 17-Nov-22 23:00:11

How I wish I had another chance
Another walk, another dance with him...

How I'd love, love , love to dance with my father again.

MiniMoon Fri 18-Nov-22 00:03:13

I had an uncle name of Matthew
He was his father's only boy
Born just south of Colby, Kansas
He was his mother's pride and joy

Yes, and joy was just the thing that he was raised on
Love is just the way to live and die
Gold is just a windy Kansas wheat field
And blue is just a Kansas summer sky

baubles Fri 18-Nov-22 07:49:31

I asked my father,
I said, "Father change my name."
The one I'm using now it's covered up
with fear and filth and cowardice and shame.
Yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me,
yes and lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover, lover come back to me.

dayvidg Fri 18-Nov-22 12:21:02

This is the first time until today
That you have run away
I'm asking you for the first time
Don't really know if I can stay,
Hey-a, hey-a, hey-a, hey!
Come back
Baby come back
Baby come back
Baby come back

Hiraeth Fri 18-Nov-22 16:08:02

Hey, hey my my
Rock and roll will never die
There’s more to the picture that meets the eye

LadyHonoriaDedlock Fri 18-Nov-22 16:53:21

There's always something magic
There's always something new
And when you really, really need it the most
That's when rock and roll dreams come through

dayvidg Fri 18-Nov-22 17:41:56

Every day I get in the queue (Too much, Magic Bus)
To get on the bus that takes me to you (Too much, Magic Bus)
I'm so nervous, I just sit and smile (Too much, Magic Bus)
Your house is only another mile (Too much, Magic Bus)

pandapatch Fri 18-Nov-22 18:45:39

Bus stop, wet day, she's there, I say
"Please, share my umbrella"
Bus stop, bus goes, she stays, love grows
Under my umbrella

dayvidg Fri 18-Nov-22 19:23:27

But it's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care?
Please don't bother tryin' to find her
She's not there

pandapatch Fri 18-Nov-22 20:02:35

But what a good year for the roses
Many blooms still linger there
The lawn could stand another mowin'
Funny, I don't even care

LadyHonoriaDedlock Fri 18-Nov-22 20:27:44

Mexico City is like another world
Nice this year they say
You'll be my senorita
In jeans and pearls
But first let's get off this highway
We'll move up to Manhattan
And fill the place with friends
Drive to the coast and drive right back again
One day we'll wake up, make love but 'til then
Try to hang on Maxine

Jumblygran Fri 18-Nov-22 20:58:46

Pearl’s a singer
She sings song for the lost and the lonely
Her job is entertaining folks
Singing songs and telling jokes
In a nightclub

MiniMoon Fri 18-Nov-22 21:03:55

Only the lonely (dum-dum-dum-dumdy-doo-wah)
Know the way I feel tonight (ooh-yay-yay-yay-yeah)
Only the lonely (dum-dum-dum-dumdy-doo-wah)
Know this feeling ain't right (dum-dum-dum-dumdy-doo-wah)

Grannmarie Fri 18-Nov-22 22:57:32

Lonely days, lonely nights,
Where would I be without my woman?

baubles Sat 19-Nov-22 08:27:23

No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
No, woman, no cry
'Cause, 'cause, 'cause I remember when we used to sit
In the government yard in Trenchtown
Oba, observing the hypocrites, yeah
Mingle with the good people we meet, yeah
Good friends we have, oh, good friends we've lost
Along the way, yeah
In this great future, you can't forget your past
So dry your tears, I say, yeah
