I really love to watch the cats out on the playground They always dodge the melody and throw the notes down With slide and toss and curveball off-speed the tune spins way out It's Jazz music - so play on - The bass man’s knocking off a ground ball into center field With swingin' bebop beat the drummer makes the steal The crowd is screaming "Action" to the shortstop saxophone There's no errors - so just play on. Cool cats in the zone to the nth degree This game's so thrilling - hope it never ends There's something different - it's clear to see That everyone who plays wins! A solid line drive from the trumpet hits the back fence A minor thirteen on the piano makes the difference I want to take the field and join them - sing my knuckleball Coach, put me in and let's play on We're all rooting for this crazy dream team There's no rough on this diamond Batter up - take a roundhouse swing Every player is shining! The trombone's running with the harmony around third base Guitar man slings a double play - the chord finds home plate The band goes deep and clears the bases, nails a high home run It's Jazz music - so let's play on!

Falling snow – falling slow on a darkling night, Second sight – you know. Falling stars – falling far then dying bright, And there's no afterglow – you know. That’s when time stood still; Ask me now – I will. Falling down – fall to ground ‘neath the laughing moon, Lost too soon – you know. Falling star – falling snow from a broken sky, Dreams and lies – you know, you know. Memories made – now gone. Blackbird still sings on. Memories made - now gone. Blackbird still sings... Blackbird singing in the dead of night

When the balance of time shifts from coming to going With more memories saved than are yet to be made Though you might wish in vain for more "to-ing" than "fro-ing" I know the end of the journey can no longer be delayed My movie of mirrors and musing Thoughts as restless as the wind torn trees The noisy night breeze tries to blow the silent moon away Flying through life I find all traveling comes to knowing I will dream myself back to this moment and stay From luminous sunrise to sunset Always moving to another now I turn time's corners underneath the vast and varied sky Soaring through life has proved all travel brings me knowing I will dream myself back to this moment and stay - I will stay

There are clouds - sailing by - in a gold lit sky Sun so innocently rising Light beams reach - through the dawn - past the mountains' peaks Foggy angels cling to sticky turrets - burn away (Then) carry us into day There are clouds - lazing by - in a midday sky Changing faces as they glide On the slope - far below - chiaroscuro glow First in sunlight, then in shadow cast their moving pictures Life, on a cloud, arrives There are clouds - sailing by - in a sunset sky Like a poem - a grand goodbye Never near - never clear - streaking high and thin Hazy feathers curving tendrils round earth's fingertips Day ends and welcomes night There are clouds drifting by - in a star strewn sky Bathed in moonglow as they pass I have watched - from this place - through a sparkling veil As the lunar bell sounds silent echoes - shining on the mirror waters There - in a dream - go I

Pulchritude 03:42
Dancing along the primrose path - Singing a song and then a laugh - Whenever there's a day of freedom, well, I pull out all the stops And let my mind race off into the unknown. Turning away the status quo - Running and going with the flow - Tomorrow seems so far away when there's just my happy today Filled with nary a care to where winds blow. Just another chance to find some sanity along the way How I've missed that fascinatin' playtime That moment so sublime - I'm hurrying back - Leavin' the track in gratitude - Whistling, finding my own groove - I need no prestidigitation - give me my imagination Here's my attitude - "all's pulchritude!"

Too Bad 04:52
Life goes on - you can’t stop it You gotta juggle it all - don’t drop it Hurry up and wait - don’t hesitate Too much on your plate - too little, too late - too bad. You’re so tired - you gotta shake it off Strained relationships - you gotta break 'em off Uneasy feeling - you’re reeling Hit the glass ceiling? Too bad. All the modern conveniences can’t buy you peace of mind No GPS can find the way to happiness. You can’t call your higher power on your fancy cell phone No matter what the ring tone - You gotta stop! Say YES! Banana peel existence - a Freudian slip Hey, get a grip. Don’t drop the ball - You’ve got a long way to fall - you’re feelin' kind of small You can’t win 'em all, baby - that’s too bad. All the modern conveniences can’t buy you peace of mind No GPS can find the way to happiness. You can’t call your higher power on your fancy cell phone No matter what the ring tone - You gotta stop! Say YES! Always in a hurry - hey, I gotta scurry - I’ve got a rising fury at the status quo. But here’s the low down - today I’m gonna slow down Take a good look around - put my feet on the ground Make a hap-hap-happy sound - and say too bad! Too too bad. Too bad baby. You want me to WHAT? That’s too bad!
