What to Say
What to say
Words held at bay
How can I fully express
The things that are causing distress
Of earthquakes and hurricanes, nonstop rain
Wondering if we’ll ever be sane
Or are we in for just more pain?
What to say
Words held at bay
Images mangled, held back in fear
Wondering what is keeping me here
With needless wars and political oppression
Knowing we are headed towards…
This is the one I want to enter for contest
You’re in Love
Words and Music Sherry Somach
Been such a long time
How are you?
Who’s your friend?
Pretty and special, I’m sure
Is she someone new?
Heart skips a beat
Hope starts to rise….
‘Till I look into your eyes
You’re in love, I know
When you look at her, you glow
I’m in pain, can’t you see?

I just entered this for contest. Wrote it a few weeks ago.
Mad Gypsy Woman
1) You stole my heart
And ran off like a petty thief
You tossed it carelessly
Like it was a piece of tainted beef
2) You burned my eyes
When you stared into them with desire
Still I can see your swarthy face
Through the images of searing fire
If I could find you I would wrap my arms around you
Then choke you half to death…

This is a catchy littly ditty that one of my online singer/songwriters put to music. I Uploaded the music.
Here are lyrics
Waiting for Spring
I am waiting
I am waiting for the beauty of Spring
I am listening
I am listening for the robins to sing
Wanna shed my coat
Wanna walk in the dark
Wanna hear the sounds of the ice cream man
Wanna thaw my heart

Coffee with Qadaffi
(M elodramatic and world weary )
My life is so boring; there is nothing left undone
Everything is la de da and just so damn hum drum
Though I’ve been to gay Paree and seen the wonders of the world
Sometimes I want to take off on the run….or get a gun
Because my life is stinkin’
I have done some thinkin’
Gonna hop an airplane; here’s what I’m gonna do:
(This part, time to swing it!)
Brownies éclairs chocolate ice-cream
Massage facial steam room mist
Brazil Samba Salsa Tango
Lobster pot wine kiss
Meringue Marengo Marimba martini
Ocean waves bikini sun
Snap jazz blues Bossa Nova
Rainbows blue sky fun
Passion Fruit incense fragrance
Sandals scandals bandits books
Eyes smile arms embrace
Mountains nature antique nooks…
Don't Let It Snow Blues
1) Punxatawny Phil didn’t see his shadow
So he predicted an early spring
Been freezing and snowing since last December
That groundhog doesn’t know a thing
I shovel on Sunday, but more falls on Monday
When will this misery end?
We get a break for a day or two
Then the snow starts falling again
2) The Farmer’s Almanac used to be on target
And I believed what I…Continue
I wrote this as a memory of my reunion. It is fairly long.
Lisa suggested I blog it, so here goes!
You Can Go Home Again…Continue
Those of you in Philly probably knew or heard of Dan Kleiman. He was an amazing keyboardist, composer, and arranger. He was in a group called Siora, with Phyllis Chapell as the vocalist.
He had recently been given a commission to compose a choral piece to be performed at the Vatican. Many commissions were coming to him.
He also played on and arranged my CD and the Christmas song I had posted here.
I could go on and on....but Dan passed away on Feb 22nd....one day before…Continue
This started as gibberish just for fun. Turned out to be satirical.
The Mad Hater's Tea Party
Would you like to come to my tea party?
I’m serving folderol and mashed malarkey
Heaps of frippery and frothy flummery
Do you think that this is dumb of me?
There’ll be lots of frivolity at my tea party
Sliced and diced on beds of triviality
Petty petit fours and arguing S’mores
And nobody doesn’t like Sarah Lee…oops, I…
I posted this as a poem and submitted it here on Wiffledust. I then decided to turn it into a song. It is not a finished product by a long shot, but I am doing this here as part of sharing my process.
Here are revised lyrics for the song. The song is on my page
Let Sleeping Icons Lie
1) Let sleeping Icons lie.…
I do find myself loving technology, but savoring old fashioned pleasures like real face time with friends, hand written letters, and the like.
Sometime I feel like we ( I will speak for myself) have just accepted the madness of these times as normal. I decided it is the new 21st Century sane.
Up for collaboration if someone comes up with music
The New 21st Century Sane
I’m a canary and I like to tweet
But I shy away from twittering
Yesterday I watched Weatherman Jim Kosek in Baltimore:
Here was his rant:
Let me know if you figure it out.
Don't have a clue about music for it. Maybe spoken word funk....hmmmmm, I'm thinking Stephen :-)
That being said, here it is
Excuse any sexist implication. This was done in fun!
Being Number 2
Ouch! Quit pushing. Do you think that I’ll work faster?
Hey! Lighten up. Can’t you just go with the flow?
Bungle! I’ll clean it. Don’t mind helping you communicate
Sometimes I think that you don’t know which way…
