The Devil’s Handshake (Song for guitar 11)

Friday, December 20, 2019

I am a cold unfeeling phanton

Existing with no flesh and bone

I’ve lost my friends and all my family

A just reward for what I’ve doneI was a family man of virtue

I was a family man of virtue

Until one day I strayed alone

And met the Devil at the crossroads

From that day my seeds were sown

“Just shake my hand upon our contracT

And bend your knee to my command

And then I’ll make you rich as Croesus

Known across both sea and land”

I was a family man of virtue

Until one day I strayed alone

And met the Devil at the crossroads

From that day my seeds were sown

Oh I was rich as rich as Midas

All I touched was turned to gold

But my heart once warm and giving

Was now gripped in Satan’s hold

I was a family man of virtue

Until one day I strayed alone

And met the Devil at the crossroads

From that day my seeds were sown

Now I’m a stranger in a strange land

Ghouls and wraiths for company

I rule this place twixt hell and heaven

I am the Lord of Purgatory

I was a family man of virtue

Until one day I strayed alone

And met the Devil at the crossroads

From that day my seeds were sewn

Later a Fox (Song for guitar 9)

Thursday, December 5, 2019

 

Mother and daughter went into the shop

The girl wanted pizza and a bottle of pop

The counter boy gave her the coke and the grub

In a plastic bottle and a plastic tub

 

Shop pop grub tub shop pop swag bag

 

Daughter and mother went dancing along

Drinking and chewing and humming a song

They dropped their rubbish in a litter bin

Full of paper and plastic and stale food and tins

 

Along song bin tins along song bin tins

 

Later a fox came looking for food

And thought that something smelled really good

He toppled the bin so the rubbish was spread

And ate some crusts of buttery bread

 

Food good spread bread food good spread bread

 

After a while a strong wind came by

And blew pizza wrappings up into the sky

One fluttered about like a kite with no string

And stuck on the head of a gull on the wing

 

By sky string wing by sky string wing

 

The gull was blinded and crashed to the sea

Where the wrapping came off and let her fly free

The plastic sank down like a clear parachute

And a jellyfish thought it might make a cute suit

 

Sea free chute suit sea free chute suit

 

Then a seal gulped the jelly with mouth opened wide

But it wriggled away leaving plastic inside

The seal got sick and washed up on the shore

Where children were eating a pizza for four

 

Wide inside shore four wide inside shore four

 

They called the coastguards but the poor seal had died

So they checked his stomach for what was inside 

There were wrappings from pizzas and chewing gum goo

And horrible stuff people put down the loo

 

Died inside goo loo died inside goo loo

 

The seal was taken and buried at sea

The rubbish was placed in a bin by a tree

Later a fox came looking for food

Knocked over the bin as he smelled something good …

 

Sea tree food good sea tree food good

 

 

Later that day a strong wind came by

And cheese pizza wrappings blew into the sky ….

Blue Angel (song for guitar 10)

Thursday, December 5, 2019

Like a bright shooting star
You shone from afar
You colour my night
In Black and White
Your face does not lie
There is truth in your eyes

Marlene Marlene Marlene O

A century ago
Saw Blue Angel on show
Though our times are apart
You captured my heart
But time cannot hide

What I feel here inside

Marlene Marlene Marlene O

I sit here alone
When her movie is shown
I never leave until
The cinema is still
The curtains pulled tight
And turned-up house lights

Marlene Marlene Marlene O

I’m not out of my mind
My heart is not blind
For one day my queen
You’ll step from the screen
And in a hot blooded bliss
You’ll wake to my kiss

Marlene Marlene Marlene O
