Finally, (or maybe semi-finally), I have a new song to offer to folks. Time For ABC’s is the title. I had the 3 basic chords running through my head for years, and decided to do something with them. Needing lyrics I uncovered some that were left over from past projects and they seem to work, after tweaking some of them. “ABC’s” refers to the time of day, around 5pm, when I try to have my habitual “Apple, Beer, & Chips.” (Sometimes augmented with Tofu Pate’, Humus, or goat/soy cheese.)
GREG HAFNER, of SOMETHING FOUL created a great Bass Guitar part, and did the final mixing. This tune came harder than others and took some working to make it a song. Hope you enjoy it!
(*I just posted this on the: www.somethingfoul.com site. For some reason I was able to post it as a WAV file. On this site I had to do it as a dreaded MP3.)
Time For ABC’s.–Paul Woodsong
Paintings Created, Turned to the Wall.
Songs Inspired, Never Heard at All.
Pages Written, No Eyes will See.
Taste & Smell, a Commodity.
Too Much Pain, Too Much Misery.
Too Many People, Not in Harmony.
Too Much Confusion, Too Much Greed.
Too Much Techno-Crap, Too Many Need.
To Hear the Painting. To See the Music.
To Touch the Poems. And Taste Symphony’s.
To Write Perfumes. With Color Hearing.
On Soul Landscapes. Time for ABC’s.
When You’re Misplaced, Wrong Spot in this World.
When You’re Perplexed, Mind in a Whirl.
When Life is Wrong, & Don’t Seem Right.
When Fate is Now, Gone in the Night.
What to do, an All Day Quest.
Where to Live, Not be, just a Guest.
When, Life is Tragic, All Day Long.
Awaken Weak, Try to be Strong.
Can We Change, this Climate of Violence?
All through History, Peace is Silenced.
As Time Marches On, We follow Blindly.
Forgetting how, to just be Kindly.
Do We Ever Gain, What we have Lost?
So Much Wasted, at What the Cost?
To Make the Grade. No Easy Feat.
Have What it Takes, to Make Ends Meet.
