We were brilliant,
Light years ago.
Shooting stars.
Two fireballs.
We were mighty,
Meteors.
Forging memories,
Cross our universe.

We were lions.
Kings of beasts.
Reigning over,
All we could see.
We were majestic,
Powerful.
Protectors of,
Our pride below.

Close your eyes,
Come with me.
On one last trip,
To our galaxy.
We’ll soar again,
Sing our tunes.
Roam the range.
We’ll shoot the moon.

We were superstars,
On our own stage.
Sang our hits,
Performed our play.
We were admired,
By those who cared.
Now the curtain’s closing,
The houselights fade.

We’ve seen Venus.
Roamed savannas
We know Jesus,
Sang Hallelujah.
Wrote our story,
We found glory.

Come with me.

We’ll soar again
Sing our tunes.
Roam our range.
We’ll shoot the moon.

Shoot The Moon

Dream With Me
by Phil Flemming



Verse

Will you dream with me?

In the deep dark night.

We can hitch a ride on a dragonfly.

To Shanghai-La

Our island in the sea.

Ooo baby, will you dream with me?



Verse

Will you drift with me?

In a great big balloon?

So much more to see, closer to the moon.

The Milky Way,

Our private galaxy,

Ooo baby, will you drift with me.



Chorus

Let’s share this night alone

As if it’s our last one.

There’s so much unknown,

Who knows what’s gonna come?



Verse

Will you sing with me,

When the day is long?

Soulfully, a romantic song.

A soft and sweet,

Melodic melody.

Ooo baby, will you sing with me.



Verse

Will you pray with me,

For a world humane?

Religiously, like a holy flame.

Burning bright,

For everyone to see.

Oh baby, will you pray with me.



Chorus

Let’s share this night alone

As if it’s our last one.

There’s so much unknown,

Who knows what’s gonna come?



Verse

Will you make love to me?

When the night is cold?

Tenderly, but uncontrolled.

A warm embrace,

Or a raging need.

Ooo, will you make love to me.



Ooo darling make love to me

Ooo baby will you pray with me

Ooo sweetie will you sing with me

Ooo honey will you drift with me

Ooo darling will you dream with me

Verse

I... don’t wanna be me no more

Don’t wanna step through my open door

Onto my hard worn floor

A world of unbareable bore

I don’t wanna be me no more



Verse

I... don’t wanna be a useless man

Don’t wanna have to hold out my hand

Don’t wanna eat out of a rusted can

Take the scraps of richer clans.

I don’t wanna be a useless man.



Chorus

How the hell’d I get here

Can’t I just be me

Why the criticism

Every time I breathe

I won’t hate on you

If you don’t hate on me

maybe then we’ll be able

To live in harmony



Bridge

Verse

I... no longer wanna play this game

Don’t wanna fuel the Jone’s flame

Don’t wanna feel a poor mans shame

Be another meaningless name.

I no longer wanna play this game



Chorus

How the hell’d I get here

Can’t I just be me

Why the criticism

Every time I breathe

I won’t hate on you

If you don’t hate on me

maybe then we’ll be able

To live in harmony



Verse

I ... just wanna be a humble man.

Be the man I know I can

A friend to those still in my plan.

Have nobody force my hand

I just wanna be a humble man

My Guardian Angel

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
You hit me with a,
Gut shot, hammer- fist,
Kidney punch, head kick.
When you walked out the door.
It was like a,
Navy Seal, stealth raid
Classified, covert OP
I didn’t have a clue.

VERSE 2
Yeah, I musta been a
Blind, crazy,
stupid, lazy
All time big dumbass.
Or maybe just a,
Silly, foolish
Simple, clueless,
All time big jackass.

CHORUS
So now I’m drinking,
Jack Daniels, Jose Cuervo,
Captain Morgan, Jim Beam.
Just to ease my pain.
I needa get down to
Aruba, Bahamas,
Mexico, St Lucia,
To get you outta my brain.

Instrumental- fast to very slow

BRIDGE
Fill em up barkeep.
Till I pass out in a heap.
There’s no one waiting home for me.
So keep em coming,
Please barkeep.

VERSE 3
Now I know you were a,
Lying, fake-crying,
Cheating, deceiving,
Screwed up little witch.
Did I say a,
Two-faced, double-crossing,
Con artist, double-talking,
Full blown hypocrite.

CHORUS
So now I’m drinking,
Jack Daniels, Jose Cuervo,
Captain Morgan, Jim Beam.
To try and ease my pain.
I needa get down to
Aruba, Bahamas,
Mexico, St Lucia,
To get you outta my brain.

VERSE3
I’ll probably pass out on the
dance floor, bathroom floor,
Parking lot, sidewalk.
Before I make it home.
I won't wake up until,
Sunday, Monday,
Tuesday, or Friday,
To find I’m all alone.

CHORUS
So I’ll just keep drinking
Jack Daniels, Jose Cuervo,
Captain Morgan, Jim Beam.
To try and ease my pain.
I needa get down to
Aruba, Bahamas,
Mexico, St Lucia,
To get you outta my brain.

FADE
Yeah to get you outta my brain
You should be ashamed.
I’m gonna drink you,
I’m gonna drink you,
I’m gonna drink you,
Outta my braaiinnnnnn…

Gut Shot

Verse1
Sitting out here on the front porch, playing solitaire.
Appropriate cause it feels like I’m in solitaire.
Playing cards with kings and queens and princes.
I’m curious why the princes are called Jacks?
Never mind, this song’s about loneliness.
But shoot, why the heck are they called Jacks?
It just don’t make sense... hmmm,
I digress.

Verse2
My girlfriend she decided she don’t love me.
Moved back with her momma to the next county.
I still kinda wish that she’d come back to me.
But what if she’s had others and got an STD?
That would not be good for my weenie.
I really do not need a mouldy penie.
That would cause me stress.
But I digress.

Chorus
When I’m all alone,
My mind can’t help but roam.
Takes me off on tangents,
Sines and cosines.
Algorithmic, deconstruction theory.
Plato's social conscience, philosophy.
What is macrame?
A type of dress?
Hmmm...I digress.

Bridge
I need an ace of hearts,
Or a queen of clubs.
But what if I got clubbed.
By the king of clubs.
For touching the royal butt,
Of the queen of clubs.
My, my, what a mess!

Verse3
I wish that I had time to drive to Cabo.
Could drink some really high-end Jose Cuervo.
Maybe find a pretty little muchacha.
But what if her daddy was in the Mexican mafia?
Caught me, cut my nuts off, and roasted em, real slow.
I would not be able to have kids no more.
And that would not be best,
But I digress.

Chorus
When I’m all alone,
My mind can’t help but roam.
Takes me off on tangents,
Sines and cosines.
Algorithmic, deconstruction theory.
Plato's human nature, philosophy.
What's origami?
Some type of sushi?
I digress.

VERSE4
So I’ll just sit out here playing solitaire.
I’m not really going, anywhere.
But what if my arse becomes a permanent part a this chair?
It would be so hard to sit down anywhere.
Like on the ivory throne, in the bathroom.
If had to do number two.
That would be quite a mess,
But I digress.

Chorus
When I’m all alone,
My mind can’t help but roam.
Takes me off on tangents,
Sines and cosines.
Algorithmic, deconstruction theory.
Plato's social conscience, philosophy.
What is pilates?
A type of coffee press?
I digress.

Yeah, I digress.
But what is macrame?
Anyway?
What a mess!
I digress.

Will you dream with me?

In the deep dark night.

We can hitch a ride on a dragonfly.

To Shanghai-La

Our island in the sea.

Ooo baby, will you dream with me?



Verse

Will you drift with me?

In a great big balloon?

So much more to see, closer to the moon.

The Milky Way,

Our private galaxy,

Ooo baby, will you drift with me.



Chorus

As if it’s our last one.

Who knows what’s gonna come?

Soulfully, a romantic song.

A soft and sweet,

Melodic melody.

Ooo baby, will you sing with me.

Religiously, like a holy flame.

Burning bright,

For everyone to see.

Oh baby, will you pray with me.

Will you make love to me?

When the night is cold?

Tenderly, but uncontrolled.

A warm embrace,

Or a raging need.

Ooo, will you make love to me.

About Me

Bio

I'm a 60 year old grandpa who was raised on country music from the beginning. My dad played the 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.
