VERSE1
Well you said your piece,
But it sounded kinda hollow.
So you messed around
With some strange fellow.
Didn’t mean to hurt me,
Really, it just happened.
Now you want us back together
To be all that we imagined.

Well, let me tell you how I feel
And I hope you get it Hon.
Here is what I’m thinking dear,
In several different tongues.


CHORUS
Adios senora malvada,
Don’t let that swingin door hit ya.
Adieu mechante femme,
I never wanna see you again.
Sayonara, double-crosser,
Don’t choke on your Perrier water.
Auf Wiedersehen, böse Frau,
It’s time for you to go.
So long, bad luck, just to be clear,
I wish you nothing but the worse.
In any language you can speak
This is my bad luck curse.

VERSE 2
Now it’s clear we’re through,
No more two-faced talk.
You walked the path,
You chose to walk.
I don’t feel bad, it’s all on you,
No excuses left to hear.
You know you broke my sacred rule.
I guess you’re just a fool my dear!

So sad, now I feel like clapping.

VERSE1

If God,

Living In a Bayou bog.

And Heaven was a steamy swamp

Not a dreamy Shangrai-La.

Not a handsome, bearded man.

And angels were the black flies,

Buzzing round your face and hands.

CHORUS

If God were a frog

In a backwood

Bayou bog.

And Heaven was a smelly swamp,

Not a dreamy Shangrai-La.

Would it make a difference?

When he preached the parables?

If God was a frog,

In a bog.



VERSE 3

If pearly gates where made of Cyrus logs

Not gleaming ornate doors.

And St.Peter was a cottonwood,

Hanging from a branch above.

Would it make a difference?

When he asked if you'd sinned?

If St Peter was a slimy snake

But still the guardian.


CHORUS

If God were a frog,

Living in a Bayou bog.

And Heaven was a steamy swamp

Not a dreamy Shangrai-La.

Would it make a difference,

If his message stayed the same?

If God was a frog,

In a bog.

Yeah, It just might be that God is a frog,
Sitting on a log, in a bog, in the fog...

If God was a Frog

VERSE1

There are no college courses,
Or online home degrees.
That teach a brand-new daddy
How to raise a family.
If mechanics never learned their craft,
Our cars would not survive.
But fathers are expected
To take care of little lives.

VERSE2
How do you hold a baby,
To rock them in your arms?
How much baby powder,
To have them smell so fine?
Do you let them chew your finger,
When their baby teeth come in?
And what’s the special secret
For stopping nasty tummy pains.

CHORUS
Here’s to all the fathers,
Who made it through the test.
We lived and learned along the way
And hoped for all the best.
Be proud of who you raised my friends
And hold your head up high
They didn’t tell us anything
But at least we know we tried.

VERSE3

How do you stop this crazy world
From causing young kids harm.
Can you grab a grade-school bully,
And take them back behind the barn.
When a teenage boy comes calling,
Can you ask, “What are your intentions?”
Or when their marriage doesn’t last,
Was there some way to prevent it?

VERSE4
If only there were lessons,
To teach daddies what to do.
We might have done a better job,
And stopped a tear or two.
We might have raised them differently
But that’s not what we should say.
Be happy with the kids you have
Celebrate them every day.

CHORUS
Here’s to all the fathers,
Who made it through the test.
We lived and learned along the way
And hoped for all the best.
Be proud of who you raised my friends
And hold your head up high
They didn’t tell us anything
But at least we know we tried.

FADE
Hats off to the new dads,
Everything will be okay.
Just do the very best you can
Each and every day

Daddy Shout Out

VERSE 1
Take me for a ride
Way up in the sky
In your rainbow balloon

Please release the lines
We can float so high,
Just me and you.

We could fly so far away
and maybe reach the stars.
The only sound that we would hear
Would be the beating of our hearts.

Take me far away
Can we go today
In your rainbow balloon.
La,la,la,la,la
La,la,la,la,la
Your rainbow ballon.

Verse 2
We could see
The different orange shades
In the Arizona night
Drift up north
To see the green and purple
Dancing lights.

It really doesn't matter what we do.
As long as we're together
Me and you

Take me far away,
Can we go today
In your rainbow balloon.
La,la,la,la,la
La,la,la,la,la
Just me and you.

Verse 3

We could see
the golden rooftops
In far off ancient lands.
The turquoise blue
Green waters
Of the warm Caribbean.

I really need to leave this one-horse town
Carry me away
Before I drown.

Take me on a ride,
We can drift so high
In your rainbow balloon.
mmm... In your rainbow balloon.
oooh...Just me and you.
La,la,la,la,la
La,la,la,la,la
Your beautiful rainbow balloon.

Rainbow Balloon

VERSE1
We had a plan, to get us through
Our golden years, just me and you.
The kids were grown, out on their own.
And this would be our time alone.
We’d do the things, we'd always dreamed.
Like travel places we'd never been.
Or simply stay at home, if that's what we wanted to.
It didn't really matter, as long as it was me and you.

VERSE2
We would be, the best of friends.
and walk together, hand in hand.
Listen to our favorite songs,
Like "Look at Us" and "Get it On".
And every now and then,
In the pale light of the moon.
I'd get to see my favorite thing,
When your smile lit up the room.

CHORUS

But someone else, had another plan.
You were taken from me, I just don't understand.
Why you're no longer here, to help me figure all this out.
I really don’t know what I’m suppose to do.
I don’t know if I’m gonna make it through.
I wish my heart was not broken in two.
Our plan no longer matters, if I can't do it with you.

VERSE 3

In our plan I'd stroke your arm, and then you’d touch mine too.
I'd smell the sweet scent of your hair,
as I always liked to do.
We’d snuggle close watching TV,
and soon fall fast asleep.
And laugh about it the next day,
over a nice hot cup of tea.
We'd be so very happy, in a simple, loving way.
And be there for each other, every single, grateful day.

CHORUS
But someone else, had another plan.
You were taken from me, and I just don't understand.
Why you're no longer here, to help me figure all this out.
I really don’t know what I’m suppose to do.
I don’t know if I’m gonna make it through.
I wish my heart was not broken in two.
Our plan no longer matters,
If I can't do it with you.

I don't want to do anything, if I can't do it with you.
My life has no more meaning, if I can't share it all with you.

The Plan

VERSE
It was Saturday night on the town with my baby,
Dinner and wine and a few shots of whiskey.
At the end of the night we were both a little tipsy,
So we headed on home, to maybe get a little frisky?
We danced real close, to a slow sexy song,
Her baby blue eyes were really getting me gone.
Then she suddenly stopped and whispered low in my ear,
I know exactly what you’ve been doing my dear.
Before you open your mouth, and put your foot in
Be honest and tell me, is there another woman?

VERSE
Well… I was taken aback, it was quite a surprise,
I said, honey I love you, and I will till I die.
But you asked me the question, and I cannot lie,
There is another lady that has caught my eye.
I’m not sure how it happened, it’s been quite a whirl,
But I have to be honest… yes, there is another girl!

CHORUS
She’s a … 56 Corvette Stingray coupe,
Baby blue metallic, with white side scoops
Her front end’s hot, with a chromed- out grill,
She’s got a V8 engine, really gives me a thrill.
I can’t stop touching her white leather seats,
Man, she gets me excited every time we meet.
She’s sleek and sexy and classy but mean,
I don’t wanna hurt your feelings but yeah…
She’s the other girl of my dreams!

VERSE
It was a Saturday night, playin cards with the guys,
Brisket and beer, and some Apple Pie shine.
By the end of the night, things got a little weird,
When the boys decided to play Truth or Dare.
It went ‘round the table, then it came to my turn.
Billy Joe stared me down, said you’re about to get burned.
You have to be honest, I don’t want any schemes,
Tell the truth right now, who’s the real girl of your dreams?
And I said…

CHORUS
She’s a … 56 Corvette Stingray coupe,
Baby blue metallic, with white side scoops
Her front end’s hot, with a chromed- out grill,
She’s got a V8 engine, really gives me a thrill.
I can’t stop touching her white leather seats,
Man she gets me excited every time we meet.
She’s sleek and sexy and classy but mean,
And I already told my honey that yeah…
There’s another girl of my dreams!

FADING
(In this modern world… can you have two girls? They are both so hot, my stomach’s in a knot… Don’t wanna have to choose, between the two… I just don’t know, what I’m gonna do)

The Other Woman

VERSE 1
I don’t need a compass,
Or a folded paper map.
No GPS, or Geo cache,
Or online Google crap.
Just point me in the right direction,
Of that hard-worn hardwood floor.
And I will find my way there,
Of that you can be sure.

VERSE 2
In my white felt, high-crowned Stetson,
A baby-blue pressed Roper shirt,
My Dingo Concho Harness boots.
All the girls are gonna wanna flirt.
I got my dark blue Levi 401s,
My bolo tie’s a silver dollar.
Man, I’m looking so damn fine,
Even Dolly Parton would holler!

CHORUS
Yeah…
We’ll kick it up, and turn it loose,
To a little Brooks and Dunn.
We’ll hitch slide, toe tap, kick ball change,
What else could be more fun?
Heel switch, brush, scuff… hook and scoot
A rolling vine, clap, turn and score.
If I died right here, I’d be in heaven,
On this Cowboy Boogie floor.

VERSE 3
It was getting hot, I took a quick pit stop.
To have a double Jack at the bar.
When a pretty little cowgirl at my side,
Said I’ve been watchin’ you from afar.
You have something special boy, I really do like your style.
Do you think that we could grab a chair?
And maybe sit and talk for a while.
I said ‘Darlin you seem lovely”,
You’re a special gal I’m sure.
But my one true love is back in there,
It’s that Cowboy Boogie floor.

CHORUS
Yeah… We’ll kick it up, and turn it loose,
To a little Brooks and Dunn.
We’ll hitch slide, toe tap, kick ball change,
What else could be more fun?
Heel switch, brush, scuff, hook and scoot
A rolling vine, clap, turn and score.
If I died right here, I’d be in heaven,
On this Cowboy Boogie floor.

FADE AFTER FINAL CHORUS
Git me some water, these boots are hot.
Their sizzlin hot, their smokin’ hot.
Their Fireball hot, ‘Lina Reaper hot.
Dolly Parton hot, Luke Coombs hot…

But still the guardian.

And Heaven was a steamy swamp

Not a dreamy Shangrai-La.

Would it make a difference,

If his message stayed the same?

If God was a frog,

In a bog.

Yeah, It just might be that God is a frog,
Sitting on a log, in a bog, in the fog...

If God was a Frog

VERSE1

There are no college courses,
Or online home degrees.
That teach a brand-new daddy
How to raise a family.
If mechanics never learned their craft,
Our cars would not survive.
But fathers are expected
To take care of little lives.

VERSE2
How do you hold a baby,
To rock them in your arms?
How much baby powder,
To have them smell so fine?
Do you let them chew your finger,
When their baby teeth come in?
And what’s the special secret
For stopping nasty tummy pains.

CHORUS
Here’s to all the fathers,
Who made it through the test.
We lived and learned along the way
And hoped for all the best.
Be proud of who you raised my friends
And hold your head up high
They didn’t tell us anything
But at least we know we tried.

VERSE3

How do you stop this crazy world
From causing young kids harm.
Can you grab a grade-school bully,
And take them back behind the barn.
When a teenage boy comes calling,
Can you ask, “What are your intentions?”
Or when their marriage doesn’t last,
Was there some way to prevent it?

VERSE4
If only there were lessons,
To teach daddies what to do.
We might have done a better job,
And stopped a tear or two.
We might have raised them differently
But that’s not what we should say.
Be happy with the kids you have
Celebrate them every day.

CHORUS
Here’s to all the fathers,
Who made it through the test.
We lived and learned along the way
And hoped for all the best.
Be proud of who you raised my friends
And hold your head up high
They didn’t tell us anything
But at least we know we tried.

FADE
Hats off to the new dads,
Everything will be okay.
Just do the very best you can
Each and every day

Daddy Shout Out

VERSE 1
Take me for a ride
Way up in the sky
In your rainbow balloon

Please release the lines
We can float so high,
Just me and you.

We could fly so far away
and maybe reach the stars.
The only sound that we would hear
Would be the beating of our hearts.

Take me far away
Can we go today
In your rainbow balloon.
La,la,la,la,la
La,la,la,la,la
Your rainbow ballon.

Verse 2
We could see
The different orange shades
In the Arizona night
Drift up north
To see the green and purple
Dancing lights.

It really doesn't matter what we do.
As long as we're together
Me and you

Take me far away,
Can we go today
In your rainbow balloon.
La,la,la,la,la
La,la,la,la,la
Just me and you.

Verse 3

We could see
the golden rooftops
In far off ancient lands.
The turquoise blue
Green waters
Of the warm Caribbean.

I really need to leave this one-horse town
Carry me away
Before I drown.

Take me on a ride,
We can drift so high
In your rainbow balloon.
mmm... In your rainbow balloon.
oooh...Just me and you.
La,la,la,la,la
La,la,la,la,la
Your beautiful rainbow balloon.

Rainbow Balloon

VERSE1
We had a plan, to get us through
Our golden years, just me and you.
The kids were grown, out on their own.
And this would be our time alone.
We’d do the things, we'd always dreamed.
Like travel places we'd never been.
Or simply stay at home, if that's what we wanted to.
It didn't really matter, as long as it was me and you.

VERSE2
We would be, the best of friends.
and walk together, hand in hand.
Listen to our favorite songs,
Like "Look at Us" and "Get it On".
And every now and then,
In the pale light of the moon.
I'd get to see my favorite thing,
When your smile lit up the room.

CHORUS

But someone else, had another plan.
You were taken from me, I just don't understand.
Why you're no longer here, to help me figure all this out.
I really don’t know what I’m suppose to do.
I don’t know if I’m gonna make it through.
I wish my heart was not broken in two.
Our plan no longer matters, if I can't do it with you.

VERSE 3

In our plan I'd stroke your arm, and then you’d touch mine too.
I'd smell the sweet scent of your hair,
as I always liked to do.
We’d snuggle close watching TV,
and soon fall fast asleep.
And laugh about it the next day,
over a nice hot cup of tea.
We'd be so very happy, in a simple, loving way.
And be there for each other, every single, grateful day.

CHORUS
But someone else, had another plan.
You were taken from me, and I just don't understand.
Why you're no longer here, to help me figure all this out.
I really don’t know what I’m suppose to do.
I don’t know if I’m gonna make it through.
I wish my heart was not broken in two.
Our plan no longer matters,
If I can't do it with you.

I don't want to do anything, if I can't do it with you.
My life has no more meaning, if I can't share it all with you.

The Plan


About Me

Bio

I'm a 60 year old grandpa who was raised on country music from the beginning. My dad played the old country classics on the radio every Saturday while he did his chores, so we couldn't help but grow up with those songs as our musical foundation.Maybe that's why I've always dreamed of becoming a country artist, maybe even standing on the Opry circle one day, performing my original number one hit song, Problem is, I can't play an instrument and can't sing a lick, so that's a bit of a roadblock- right?
One thing I think I can do is write, so I'm joining Songbay to test my theory.I will submit potential song lyrics, some of which I hope people find humorous and entertaining, and others that are maybe poignant and heart-touching. I guess we'll find out, but here's to making the attempt. Cheers!

CV/History

Grew up in a small fishing village in a small house with a large family... 2 parents, 6 siblings, a dog and a cat. My dad worked really hard to provide for us, and my mom was the rock of the family.We didn’t know what we didn’t know, so we had a good up
inging, with lots of challenges, but also a lot of fun.
