Changes Heroes

19 01 2016

The stars are aligned tonight
A comet is burning bright
From the hemisphere
Well beyond his years
In space and out of sight

A man is he’s own myth
What he sees is what they wish
Their own point of view
Never knowing you
Between the grooves that hiss

Changes Heroes so the world can see
Changes Heroes so that he can be
He does what he wants
He does what he needs
He Changes Heroes for you and me

Heaven is a state of mind
We hope exists when it comes the time
Value those you can
Learn to understand
Before we say goodbye

Remember we’re all the same
And moments are not to blame
Our rewritten past
Is not meant to last
The fashion of the fame

Changes Heroes so the world can see
Changes Heroes so that he can be
He does what he wants
He does what he needs
He Changes Heroes for you and me

Changes Heroes
Changes Heroes
Changes Heroes





Nadine’s Oven got Fried Oh My Oh Dear

26 12 2015

Nadine’s oven got fried oh my oh dear
By a transformer down the block that blew
Instead of being in the Christmas spirit
She’s trying to figure how to cook her food

Was a warm December morning
Watching rain in her sun room
Sipping her second cup of coffee
When sounds of silence turned into one big BOOM

Fireworks in aqua colors
Rainbow skies where clouds had been
A first glance the house looked in order
Till she went to the kitchen and saw her high tech oven

Nadine’s oven got fried oh my oh dear
By a transformer down the block that blew
Instead of being in the Christmas spirit
She’s trying to figure how to cook her food

It is 2 days till the party
Dinner at her house Christmas Eve
The stress was getting to her
So to the hot tub she went for relief

As she eased into the water
To escape the horror of indoors
Noticed the hot tub motor burned out
Then yelled into the air “You Motherboard !!!!!”

Nadine’s oven got fried oh my oh dear
By a transformer down the block that blew
Instead of being in the Christmas spirit
She’s trying to figure how to cook her food

No one will come out till next week
Reimbursement forms to sift
Happy Holidays in question
With this unexpected  yuletide gift

She will figure out the menu
To make her dinner and her dish
Right after she writes her lawyer
To put Santa Claus on her naughty list

Nadine’s oven got fried oh my oh dear
By a transformer down the block that blew
Instead of being in the Christmas spirit
She’s trying to figure out how to cook her food





I Love my Life

25 11 2015

 

In this world
It’s hard to comprehend
Till you hear the news
Of a passing friend
The heart and soul
The core of the light
Drawing me closer to
What he meant to the night

So much in common
With our musical roots
I will always remember
The good years of our youth
You had the strength
That was clear to see
Others made it easy to be hard
You made it easy for me

I love my life
The facts are the facts
I’ve gone through too much
And come too far to step back
Conflicted emotions
You need to know
Life is not in black and white
But we go on with the show

He was the calm
Searching for our way
Taking the three as one
As we learned and play
Those special things
I’ll remember to the end
Save me a seat in the choir
My old dear friend

I love my life
The facts are the facts
I’ve gone through too much
And come too far to step back
Conflicted emotions
You need to know
Life is not in black and white
And we go on with the show





Old Fogie

26 10 2015

When I was a young man
Way back in my prime
I thought that getting old
Was just a state of mind
With gray hair and wrinkles
Comes wisdom and respect
Till I heard those two words
That got me quite upset

You can call me fuddy buddy
I don’t have a problem with that
Cause one day you’ll be in my shoes
Dag nabit, you wippersnap
Sprouting old phrase lingo
Taking naps with a yawn
And shouting out my front window
HEY YOU KIDS, GET OFF MY LAWN

I’m an old fogie
That’s okey-dokey
I take my time, guess I’m a slow pokey
I’m an old fogie
That’s okey-dokey
I am what I am, I’m no phoney
A trombone player who loves karaoke
I’m an old fogie
That’s okey-Dokey

( Trombone Solo Interlude )

I’ve tried to keep myself in shape
Early walks at the local mall
Bought Rogaine in bulk at Costco
To help me from getting bald
On a restricted diet
To keep Father Time at bay
Can’t keep the hands of fate
Making me NOT look my age

Looking back in hindsight
Way back in my youth
If I saw someone my age
I would have said the same, that’s the truth
Sitting here on a park bench
Those names don’t worry me my friend
Enjoying the twilight of this life
Wearing a fresh new pair of Depends

I’m an old fogie
That’s okey-dokey
I take my time, guess I’m a slow pokey
I’m an old fogie
That’s okey-dokey
I am what I am, I’m no phoney
A trombone player who loves karaoke
I’m a old fogie
That’s okey-Dokey





Three Days September

30 09 2015

Calls of inspiration in the highest decree
Prayful obligation for the world to be
Experiences with the need to live
Responsibilities left to give
Keeping alive the sense of unity

The path of dialogue redirects every step
Courageous actions and the side effects
With the interests of all in mind
Seize the moment searching for signs
Pursue the future our past rejects

Three Days September
Cannot erase
The hearts of people
Mistrust so misplaced

Three Days September
To part the clouds away
From the halls of power
To embrace uncertain days

(Solo)

A hopeless maze of violence, abuse and despair
No justifications as words fill through the air
I beg you peace no harm
Resume the call to arms
Where countries and society shown no difference to care

Quietly growing a culture of waste
Selfish boundless thirst without taste
Are those who suffer most
A pain which cries out hope
Present to the light, the final hand of fate

Three Days September
Cannot erase
The hearts of people
Mistrust so misplaced

Three Days September
To part the clouds away
From the halls of power
To embrace uncertain days

Fade Out





Boys Are in Nats Town

31 07 2015

Boys are Back in Town ( Thin Lizzy )

Guess who’s at first base again
That’s right it’s our Ryan Zimmermann
So good to see you on the field
With your glove and bat you wield

Who’s that standing in the left field perch
A man they call Jason “Chia Pet” Werth
Boy it’s great to see you playing there
In sunglasses with flowing Grizzly Adams hair

The boys are in Nats town
The boys are in Nats town
The bats are back
And that’s a fact
The boys are in Nats town

The pennant race is heating on
Welcome back Mr Anthony Rendon
We’ve missed your hits and those plays
Around the horn every day

Nicked and bruised this team’s come so far
Just look at Yunel Escobar
Filling the holes with Danny Espinosa
And Clint Robinson’s bat so explosive

The boys are  in Nats town
The boys are  in Nats town
The bats are back
And that’s a fact
The boys are  in Nats town

Max Scherzer fanning them one. two, three
Bryce Harper hitting home runs to infinity
Gio, Jordon, Doug and Drew Storen
And “save” a shout out to Jonathan Papelbon

Desi, Ramos and Michael A. Taylor
So much success, no room for failure
Matt Williams will have to face the truth
Soon time to celebrate with your famous Babe Ruth

The boys are in Nats town
The boys are  in Nats town
The bats are back
And that’s a fact
The boys are in Nats town





Take It On Down The Line

16 07 2015

Coming next someone new
So tired trying to be alone with you
For whatever everyday
To see from behind
I don’t know what else I can say

Looking up you knew who I was
We used the world, just because
Please give me your mercy again
Such that I would know
Is this the beginning or end

When things I regret
With her sweetened breath
Something so precious
Lost time well spent
All I’ve ever done is hide
Take it on down the line
Take it on down the line

(Instrumental)

In the past having survived
Creatures at bay, innocent selfish cries
All while she stands youthfully
Laughing in the winds
Holding back from insanity

Her eyes and words calling to
The slumber that creeps reveals itself to you
How easy your are to need
I know who I am
And not who you want me to be

When things I regret
With her sweetened breath
Something so precious
Lost time well spent
All I’ve ever done is hide
Take it on down the line
Take it on down the line
