You Look Good In Jeans

You never follow fashion
Casual is what you like to be
You look good the way you are
And always a sight to see

You don't care about nettle stings
Or walking on a muddy track
You'll clamber through the bushes
And you don't really give a jack

You look so smart
You're off the charts
The best I've ever seen
I've gotta say
Yeah I've gotta say
You look good in jeans

You're at home on horseback
And riding in a rodeo
Guys all whistle when they see ya
And shout well wouldn't you know

You look so smart
You're off the charts
The best I've ever seen
I've gotta say
Yeah I've gotta say
You look good in jeans

You're never seen in dresses
But in boots and a cowgirl hat
Men can't help but notice you
When you're looking like that

You look so smart
You're off the charts
The best I've ever seen
I've gotta say
Yeah I've gotta say
You look good in jeans

Night Owl

I sleep all through the day
And I party through the night
You should see me in the morning
It's not a pretty sight

I'm a night owl
I'm a night owl
And I'll stay until it's time to scoot
I'm a night owl
I'm a night owl
What a hoot

One a.m. is too early
To leave and get a cab back home
So you go now if you want to
And leave me here on my own

I'm a night owl
I'm a night owl
And I'll stay until it's time to scoot
I'm a night owl
I'm a night owl
What a hoot

Don't stop me now I'm getting started
So take a hike and don't you bother me
I won't leave until it's closing time
When the bouncers throw me out at three

I'm a night owl
I'm a night owl
And I'll stay until it's time to scoot
I'm a night owl
I'm a night owl
What a hoot

Don't stop me now I'm getting started
So take a hike and don't you bother me
I won't leave until it's closing time
When the bouncers throw me out at three

I'm a night owl
I'm a night owl
And I'll stay until it's time to scoot
I'm a night owl
I'm a night owl

A Perfect Storm

When things go wrong you should worry
You should have never let the pressure build
Ignore it at your peril you have been forewarned
You can see that it has turned into a perfect storm

What you do next will matter the most
The earth has been stripped now it's like a ghost
Should you do something or nothing at all
If you do the latter you're heading for a fall

Beware beware it's a perfect storm
Daytime or night time dusk or dawn
Batten down the hatches it's a perfect storm

With thunder and lightning all across the sky
And water levels rising up so very high
Is it too late now are we all gonna die

The whole world will come crashing down
It's the last time you'll see it so look around
If you are lucky then you may survive
So be glad that you are breathing and still alive

Beware beware it's a perfect storm
Daytime or night time dusk or dawn
Batten down the hatches it's a perfect storm

With thunder and lightning all across the sky
And water levels rising up so very high
Is it too late now are we all gonna die

Destroying our world has its consequences
You should have taken care of it when you had the chance
Will the next generation ever be born
Or will life disappear in a perfect storm

Beware beware it's a perfect storm
Daytime or night time dusk or dawn
Batten down the hatches it's a perfect storm

With thunder and lightning all across the sky
And water levels rising up so very high
Is it too late now are we all gonna die

Belladonna

Some things are safe in small doses
But you should be aware
Belladonna is not one of those
For you haven't got a prayer

Once you've tasted her sweetness
By then it will be too late
Your heart will be palpitating
Leaving you a bitter taste

She's so sweet but deadly too
She's bad for you
She's bad for you

That's What Fools Always Do

Some of us guys have to figure things out
To see what this game of love's about
It would be easier if I only knew
And not mess it up as I always do

I mumbled my words when I said I love you
They didn't come out like I hoped them to
Trust me to do that right on cue
As that's what fools always do

I tried to make you laugh with some jokes and wit
But it seems I fluffed my lines just a little bit
All my good intentions have got misconstrued
As that's what fools always do

What can I do to make everything right
I always get it wrong though try as I might
How many chances is it gonna take
To get it right with no mistakes

I mumbled my words when I said I love you
They didn't come out like I hoped them to
Trust me to do that right on cue
As that's what fools always do

I tried to make you laugh with some jokes and wit
But it seems I fluffed my lines just a little bit
All my good intentions have got misconstrued
As that's what fools always do

What can I do to make everything right
I always get it wrong though try as I might
How many chances is it gonna take
To get it right with no mistakes

I mumbled my words when I said I love you
They didn't come out like I had hoped them to
I've gone and messed it up exactly right on cue
As that's what fools always do

I tried to make you laugh with some jokes and wit
But it seems I fluffed my lines just a little bit
All my good intentions have got misconstrued
As that's what fools always do

Spring Madness

No matter what the species are
Spring is the season when they mate
A stark raving bonkers time of year
When none of them can wait

They all seem to lose their marbles
Going looney tune to pair
Mad as a hatter jumping up and down
With Spring madness in the air

Birds migrate a thousand miles
And fill the skies up full of song
They build nests to lay their eggs in
Then feed hungry mouths all day long

They all seem to lose their marbles
Going looney tune to pair
Mad as a hatter jumping up and down
With Spring madness in the air

Even squirrels they go goo goo
Chase each other round the trees
They seem to say come and catch me
Doing anything that they please

They all seem to lose their marbles
Going looney tune to pair
Mad as a hatter jumping up and down
With Spring madness in the air

Calls of nature affects the humans
See couples walking hand in hand
Even they are going crazy
Making future marriage plans

They all seem to lose their marbles
Going looney tune to pair
Mad as a hatter jumping up and down
With Spring madness in the air

Spring Madness

More Fool You

She filled your heart full of desire
So hot that she burns like fire
But you found out she was such a liar
More fool you

You were told she was such a flirt
We all knew that you'd get hurt
It was something you could avert
So more fool you

Nothing ever ends the way you think it may
She turns you over every single day
She looks good but it's just a disguise
Hiding all of those secret lies

But you keep going back for more
Even when you've been hurt before
So if you are feeling a little sore
More fool you

Others told you and you were warned
That woman's got previous form
And now you're looking so forlorn
More fool you

You should take heed of good advice
She's got a soul of rock and a heart of ice
And now you've found when you fall apart
She has hit you like a poison dart

But you keep going back for more
Even when you've been hurt before
So if you are feeling a little sore
More fool you

Others told you and you were warned
That woman's got previous form
And now you're looking so forlorn
More fool you

More Fool You

Medallion Man

He wears a fake gold disc upon a chain
And thinks he's a real cool cat
With his shirt undone and showing his chest
For god's sake what the hell is that

Look out here's medallion man
He'll blind you all with his bling
Shining brighter than the disco lights
He likes to think that he is king

He thinks that he's god's gift to girls
And so suave he makes you sick
He adjusts his hair in the mirror
Thinking that he's so slick

Look out here's medallion man
He'll blind you all with his bling
Shining brighter than the disco lights
He likes to think that he is king

Medallion man with ring filled hands
But not one of them is real
And with his knock off Armani suit
He thinks he's got sex appeal

Look out here's medallion man
He'll blind you all with his bling
Shining brighter than the disco lights
He likes to think that he is king

Medallion man with ring filled hands
But not one of them is real
And with his knock off Armani suit
He thinks he's got sex appeal

Look out here's medallion man

Shining brighter than the disco lights
He likes to think that he is king

I entered 5 songs in the UKSC songwriting contest 2022.

The other one is a lyrc in the protest/environmental lyric section THEY'VE GONE AWAY and reached the final of that section. Also, I had Shake The Snow Globe chosen for an independent artist Christmas compilation album called 37 Tales Of Christmas which was released in 2020.

With this record company and publisher the song was signed with a long term contract to be pitched for artists, sync, adverts and movies.
