Song Lyric Sunday : Your Father and I

This  part  of  Song Lyric  Sunday  from   Helen Espinosa

here is  the Pingback

Now  I love  Beautiful  South  because  they  write  about  real life. This  particular  song is  about  how  an  embittered  wife  see’s  the  conception  of  her  son  in  a totally  different  light  to , laddish  husband  who  seems  to be looking  at  things  through  rose  coloured  glasses  while  his  wife   most definitely  has  no  such  blinkers on! It  is  a great  story   and  the video  is  brilliantly  made ! This  is  my  first  entry  to  this  challenge  so  I hopen  I  have  gone  about  this  correctly!

I  give you : YOUR FATHER  AND I  , BY  BEAUTIFUL SOUTH.

It was the middle of winter
And I drove us in my car
Well, the snow started fallin’
So we stopped off at a bar

When the beer jugs started flowin’
And your mother and I took the floor
But by the last dance we were tired
So I booked a room next door

So if anyone asks you
“If you come from heaven above”
You’re from a one star motel
With a five star passionate love

It was a hot summers day
(Hey, hey)
And we drove there in our car
And your father was thirsty
So we had to find a bar

Well he wouldn’t stop drinking
And he couldn’t stand on his feet
We had to walk to a hotel
And book ourselves into a suite

So if the teacher asks you
“Are you from heaven or are you from hell?”
You’re from a one star drunken screw
In a one star motel

Yes, if the teacher asks you
“Are you from heaven or are you from hell?”
You’re from a pitch black toilet
In a highway Taco Bell

I’ll remember the birth
For the rest of my time on this land
You’re mother’s sweating buckets
And me holdin’ onto her hand

Well your father was absent
He claimed he couldn’t find the ward
Just tugging on mescal
Trying to eat the umbilical cord

So if anyone asks you
“Do you know where you’re from?”, say, “Yes”
You’re from your mother’s womb
And your father’s stinking breath

And if they ask you, how you got here?
(Hey)
Tell ’em just what it took
(Hey)
Your father’s stinking breath
(Hey)
And your mother’s stinking mood

Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Won’t tell the truth

Aha, hey
Aha, aha
(Hey, hey)
Na na na na na na na na
(Hey, hey)

Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
(Hey)
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I won’t tell the truth
Your father and I won’t tell the whole truth
Your father and I

Musical Theme : “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun”

Stars like Dice

She picked the stars up like dice

and threw them once and threw twice.

Till they were scattered in the sky,

an amazing mix to beguile the eye.

Then colouring a deep indigo

she made a stunning backdrop for the stars to show.

There was such a stunning light

and she decided to call it night.

She spread her arms out far and wide

and defied any soul to reach the other side.

All day she played at this

and every now an then she would ignite a sun with just a kiss.

Galaxy after Galaxy she set out within  her being.

She was unsure if she was travelling to, or fleeing.

Then she had a mad idea, made a planet green and blue

and planted the seed for me and you.

Eventually she got bored and looked for some new employment

she made oceans and land and all of that was  for our enjoyment.

But as she was growing tired

and  so she made something less inspired.

From within her tired mind

she created mankind.

ONCE UPON A MOON

Look at me sitting on the moon

watching stars as they past me, whizz and zoom.

I spent all day making more

you can count and keep a score.

I have attached by ribbons bright to my moon the most bright

so you can sit and view them tonight.

I have searched the the skies at night

for new stars out on their maiden flight.

I can see stories in this universe

so many things which cannot be reversed.

Rushing fast present, future past

the truths the lies the dye is cast.

Stars are golden, stars are bright

stars dance unendingly all through their life.

They see things we never dreamed of colours, vistas of dust

over millennia they have form a planets’ crust.

Stars are sparkly stars are light ….

if only we would  treat  them right

FAREWELL TO EARTH
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(A Sonnet to a dying Earth. Eight lines A,B. A,B A,B A,B )

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It was hard to leave, hard to understand

Some tried hard to save our Earth

The others ignored the facts out of hand.

Where once was green and plenty all was now dust and dearth.

I was not alone there were others of us there

Set upon this lonely moon

Destined , now to travel who knows where.

Afraid and frightened I sat marooned

TWINKLE TWINKLE

They told me the job was easy, the told me my days would be free

but the fact that it would take me eons to complete was the fact they kept from me.

They asked if I was serious, they inquired  if I was trustworthy, hard working and able to work alone.

They forgot to tell me my eyes would be completely boggled every morning when I got home.

They gave me a computer a pad and pen

and they threw in broadband but after that I did not hear from them again!

Their medical division offered me some dark glasses but I think that was a joke.

The scientific section got me a telescope. I was all excited with this job and so  full of hope.

They showed me my work station, it was in a field

they bought me in a ergonomic chair, across the grass it wheeled.

I was allowed two tea breaks and a 30 minute lunch

but definitely no coffee at my desk, and they threw in some coloured bands so I could keep my pens all in a bunch.

They gave me an umbrella in case there should be rain

and a little woolly hat just to protect my brain.

http://25.media.tumblr.com/

So now I was ready excited and inspired

I was determined to make them glad that it was me they had hired.

Now I hear your brain ticking I know what you want to know

what is it that my job is and why does it please me so.

I have to count the stars all of them up in the skies.

Which means I shall be busy every night with stars before my eyes!

 ps And now they have me working and my contract has begun

They have moved  the blooming goal posts  and they want me to also map  the Sun??!!

Could it be a hymn for life?

Take the time to make some sense
Of what you want to say
And cast your words away upon the waves
Bring them back with Acquiesce
On a ship of hope today
And as they fall upon the shore
Tell them not to fear no more
Say it loud and sing it proud
And they…

Will dance if they want to dance
Please brother take a chance
You know they’re gonna go
Which way they want to go
All we know is that we don’t know
What is gonna be
Please brother let it be
Life on the other hand won’t let you understand
Why we’re all part of the masterplan

I’m not saying right is wrong
It’s up to us to make
The best of all things that come our way
And all the things that came have past
The answer’s in the looking glass
There’s four and twenty million doors
Down life’s endless corridor
Say it loud and sing it proud
And they…

Will dance if they want to dance
Please brother take a chance
You know they’re gonna go
Which way they want to go
All we know is that we don’t know
What is gonna be
Please brother let it be
Life on the other hand won’t let you understand
Why we’re all part of the masterplan

Today I am going to do something different. Above is one of my favourite tracks. It happens to by Oasis. I like Oasis though not a huge amount like one of my sons! Yet I have to admit that they, the Gallagher brothers, are extremely talented in the lyrics and music department.

I love lyrics, words being my first love. I first heard this song when one of  my sons was visiting and the words came out of his room and grabbed me by the scruff of the neck and hauled me upstairs to the source. We spent an afternoon listening to different songs all of which had wonderful lyrics. I found out that afternoon that my son also likes lyrics.

Shortly afterwards I found the above video on youtube  and fell in love with it too!! The wonderful idealised Manchester in the style almost of  L.S. Lowry .

The Gallagher brothers , Noel and Liam when not arguing are very fond of the music of the Beatles a fact many of their songs reflect . Oasis openly admit to being influenced by the Beatles. If you listen to the words of this song you can hear many references to Beatles music and titles and in the video there are many more. I shall leave it to you to spot them, it will be more fun that way!!

When I get low and life seems to close in on me the words “The answer’s in the looking glass There’s four and twenty million doors down life’s endless corridor so say it loud and sing it proud And they… Will dance if they want to dance”   really say to me, the answer is with you , there are so many chances to take ..take one and dance. That helps me it really does.

So there you have it , me not talking in rhyme….. well not all the time.  No seriously  do give it a chance I know they have a tarnished name but they are talented and are as good unplugged and live as they are are fresh from a tip top recording studio. I hope you find something uplifting in the lyrics I do , it is almost like a hymn to life.

So to all of you out there be well, be happy, live life and may inspiration for your blogs keep a coming!! xxxx
