HUMOR: My Lyrics Ran Away with the
Just the other day I got a nice steel string guitar for myself... the kind
of guitar that makes me want to sit down and write a song or two. (I hope
you'll read the true story of how I found this gorgeous instrument in "Learning to Accept Miracles").
Ever since I was a child, I've loved to hum little ditties softly to
myself, sometimes coming up with full-fledged songs. Now that I've finally
got a great-sounding guitar, I'm ready to get back into song-writing
again... the only problem is that my song lyrics and titles are a bit more
humorous than I know what to do with. My musical muse comes up with
the oddest song lyrics and titles!
I'm sharing these lyrics in hopes that they may bring a smile to your face
and brighten your day. If your imagination is good, you may even be lucky
enough to hear the music behind the words!
There's the song for the woman who works two jobs, and is looking forward
to her next vacation:
I'm going full speed ahead to my vacation,
'cause I just can't wait to slow down!
Then there are the excuse songs:
I would have called you sooner,
but my watch fell off while I was looking for the
The sad songs:
My ship caught fire, burned, and sank
when it came in
The songs for dealing with difficult people:
Hand me that umbrella, please,
if you insist on raining on my parade
And songs for "bad hair" days:
Only my mother
Could call me beautiful today
And my personal favorites... songs dealing with reality
Where, oh where have my car keys gone?
Where, oh where can they be?
I just set them down on the table top,
Right next to my cup of hot tea!
