Ole Folklore

Ole Folklore.mp3

LYRICS
Are you familiar with ‘ole folklore
About a dragon who thought she could soar
And live forever more
Forever more
See Her fly
Across the sky
Babies cry
Mothers sigh
Overdrive
She takes a dive
Got to strive
To stay alive
And live forever more

Not so cute and cuddly to adore
Breathing fire going into war
Live forever more

Reliving memories from the days before
Wondering if the dragon really did endure
And live forever more

Tales of dragons’ whimsical allure
Eye to the sky and see Her soar
The folklore lives forever more

Sunset

Sunset.mp3

LYRICS
Did we all forget the sun would set
On our neighborhood
Did we all forget the sun would set
We knew it would
Did we forget

Did we forget the sun would set
At the end of the day
Did we forget the sun would set
For the night make way
Did we forget

Did we forget the sun would set
It’s inevitable
Did we forget the sun would set
Can’t be gullible
Did we forget

Did we all forget the sun would set
Yet…
No surprise
In the morning it will rise
Solution met
No need to frown
When the sun goes down

Nimbocumulus

Should I take notice
In the clouds above us
Nimbocumulus does surround us
Cumulonimbus
Nevertheless
When they drain
It’s going to rain

Take a look around
Leaves turned upside down
Flood warning… all could drown
Nimbocumulus does surround us
Cumulonimbus
Nevertheless
When they drain
It’s going to rain

Chance of lightening is really huge
Followed by hell’s deluge
Bring a change to attitude
Nimbocumulus does surround us
Cumulonimbus
Nevertheless
When they drain
It’s going to rain

Song Request

Song Request.mp3

LYRICS
I’m just saying
What kind of song are you playing
Something to make you sing
I’m just saying
What kind of song are you playing
A chance it’ll make you dance
The catchy hook
That’s not by the book
Then turnaround
That gets the rhythm down

I’m just suggesting
If you are requesting
Make it something I will sing
I’m just suggesting
If you are requesting
With a chance that I’ll dance
A chance it’ll make you dance
With a catchy hook
That’s not by the book
Then turnaround
That gets the rhythm down

Stop and take a picture
Capture for the future

ABOUT THE SONG
I started writing the song while sitting on the courthouse wall. A couple of people stopped and asked questions. So, I turned their queries into the lyrics. Then, when I was working on the music, two gals stopped in front of me… turned and started dancing as they took a selfie of us.

Political Satire

LYRICS
You want it. You got it.
Now you’re gonna get it
They gave it to you
Now, watcha gonna do?
Isolation nation
Isolationism I am
I’m pretty sure
That’s what I voted for

I ran a campaign
About all that I am
I really don’t give
A God damn
You’re lucky to live
Political satire?
Pathological liar
Too blatant
Rampant blatant
On fire
Political satire

Love sittin’ under the trees
Saying, Honey, more please
Ohhh… so sweet! Thank the “be’s”

Love sittin’ in the cool breeze

A Taste

LYRICS
I’m in empathy with your company
Take me seriously… I’d love to explore
Let’s go back to my place
And we’ll taste it some more
Let’s go back to my place
Embrace a face-to-face
Or your place is fine… it will certainly do
It’s really up for your review
Let’s go back to your place
And we’ll taste it some more
Which came first chicken or egg
Your lips to mine or hand on your leg?
Why doesn’t the chicken cross the line
And quit wasting a mighty fine time
Let’s go back to our place
And we’ll taste it some more
I’d love to hear your spirit… love to hear it
I’d love to find your mind… one-of-a-kind
Find tranquility in you body… down to the core
… explore
… taste it some more

Granted Wish

LYRICS
I’ve been here, and I’ve been there
Been about everywhere
But, it doesn’t get much better than this
Granted wish
It doesn’t get much better than this

I’ve been “woke-up”… been aware
Found loving people that really, really care
No, it doesn’t get much better than this
Granted wish
It doesn’t get much better than this

A just land and place that’s fair
Sure glad to have met you there
Yes, it doesn’t get much better than this
Granted wish
It doesn’t get much better than this

Black Hole Capture

LYRICS
Don’t you think it’s time…
We see
The entire galaxy?
Beyond the closest star
Wanna go far
Gotta get out and explore some more
Take a picture for sure
Of a whole black hole

Don’t forget your rocket
With a digital input socket
Tunes wit a groove in the pocket
A roadtrip soundtrack to rock it!

Black Hole Capture (Video).mp4

Blackhole Capture.mp3

ABOUT THE SONG
You can not really take a picture of a black hole. No light escapes from a black hole, so you won’t see anything. That is why it is called a black hole; however, theoretical astronomers have attempted to take the first picture of a black hole.

Momentary Lapse

LYRICS
One moment lapses into another
Until the minutes start to take over
Day by day
Goes our way
Minute by minute turns to hours
Better take the time while it’s ours
Day by day
Goes our way
Passing hours turn light to night
As long as there’s tomorrow, our future’s bright
Day by day
Goes our way
Consider me lucky to accumulate years
And Father Time is still in arrears
Day by day
Goes our way
Blessed to outlive our fears
No regrets or tears if “The End” nears

That Thrill To Kill

LYRICS
Deaf and mute
Can no longer compute
Can’t dispute
Can know longer compute
Drop to my knees
Ask Her why
Pray tell, please
The thrill to kill must die

Blind brother
Can no longer see
Unkind other
Can no longer be

See, hear, speak
No malice nor evil
Serve the weak
Can know “longer” well

Got what we sought
Hot, hot, hot
A joke’s hoax or whatnot

Hot, hot, hot
In my trap, you’re caught
Skin is burnin’
Heart is yearnin’
World keeps turnin’… ’round

Well, thanks a lot
Hot, hot, hot
For the lesson taught

World keeps turnin’… ’round
Turn the temperature down

Soul-you-tion

LYRICS
What’s the solution
To our institution
The human nation institution of pollution
What’s the solution?
Have we lost control of self-control
Say “it’s close enough for rock and roll”
Destination annihilation
Our species as others’ feces
Suck out our brains
And eat our remains
The toll of our goal

Runaround

LYRICS
Let’s run around
Like we own the town
Let’s make a sound
That’s gonna resound
When the facts are found
In fact, you do
Own this town
In fact, you do
Me, too
We own this town

Feeling under the gun
You don’t have to run
Time you had some fun
We own this town
Me and you
We own this town
We all do
I can see Lenape was here before me
Till we came up with a bogus treaty
No treat for “we”
More like a treat for me
At the cost of society

Runaround.mp3

ABOUT THE SONG
The Lenape Indians lived in their village for thousands of years. Then, William Penn came and named their home Penn’s Woods (Pennsylvania). More European settlers came and took over their village and named the town after the indigenous people they drove out — Lenape, PA.

There are no Lenape left in Lenape. There are no Lenape left in Pennsylvania. There are no Lenepe.
