"If three people tell the same lie,you should believe it."
An old Chinese proverb



I like lyric poetry,...But really I like ballads.
And I wanted to tell some small fanciful stories.

So hear they go...

Fifteen(15) Jezebells (second version)

On that night train
I could not find a thing.
'Cause the lights were out;
an accident no doubt!

15 Jezebells on that train to Hell,
but it's just as well,
because they're all for sale!

Travelling first class,
to the very last.
It's a big blast,
but it can't last.

In the porter's car,
I knew we'd gone to far,
when we fleeced Lamarr
and then he crashed the bar.

When the tracks changed,
well, it did seem strange
to stop at a town that had no name.

15 Jezebells on their way to hell.
Headed for a fate
far worse than jail...

The Living "N"

It's my ambition
just to stay in bed.
If I get up, well
I might just lose my head.
I'd tell you something
but it's all been said...
You think this is livin',
but you're like the walkin' dead.

So, so how can you live lives
thay lay like the sheets?
And the only soul you know
is right under your feet.
While you want to win
by another's defeat...
So you can't see the truth
because it's too discreet.

You think it's raining
when there's mud in your eye,
and you don't know the difference
between "me" and "I"...
I'd say your'e dirty,
but you think you're sly...
If the truth were a mirror
you'ld probably die.

Stormy Days

Seems like stormy days of weather
whenever we're together.
But yet we're torn asunder
and still I have to wonder
why nothing fills the void
whenever we're apart,
and yet to be without you
really breaks my heart.
Oh, so easy to go wrong
without you.

It supasses all my expectations,
and there's no greater affectation
than to pretend you have no place
in my heart.

Still I know I want you,
and yet I find it hard
to admit that I need you
in my life...

Oh, so easy to go wrong
without you.

Sea Breezy

Sea breezy on a storm warning.
On a faint wind it was borne in.
Still the old men think they are worn in;
Born into the evil world's ways...

But it was just another morning,
just another morning...
It was just another morning of the day.

My lover wishes to discover;
with her wiles she's trying to uncover
whether I'm enamoured by another,
or enraptured in any other way...

But it was just another morning,
just another morning...
It was just another morning of the day...

(somehow, this was inspired by the Beatles..)

A Sailor on the Edge

Out on the rough seas
I swear it's freezing.
At home they're squeezing
your true love.

Well, times are trying,
and life is hard,
so I guess its time
to call on God.

There's a chill wind blowing,
and I can feel it.
but if it don't pass fast,
well I might just steal it...

Still, there must be something
that I don't know,
"cause this wind is moving
much too slow...

So i guess it's time
for a change.
But after all these years
it seems so strange.

So i'll go just one place
for the truth,
'cause now I know
that faith is proof...
So I guess my quest
is finally done...
I have found the Father...
and the Son.

Stake My Claim

If I make U
will U take it?

If I love U
will U fake It?

If I tease U
will U like It?

If I squeeze U
will U bite It?

OOOh!!! NO!!!

Nemo Neptune

Sea demons slaver waving
but I am not afraid.
For all that I can call my own
I either stole or made.

Yet, I call myself a good man,
and I shall show no shame,
for I love the name I gave me,
and I'll answer to the same.

And so you labor to be noble,
yet I have come to warn...
Of which one holds more terror,
the pirate ...or the storm...

Charlie Chan

He was a man
unlike the rest,
and the enigmatic
zen koan was the test.
He was a man
of the Han(d)
They called him
Charlie,...Charlie Chan.

He was born
in Hong kong,
on a sampan,
but his number one son
was born in Japan.
He was a man of the Han(d)...
However
Any
Nevermore
Diverge

And so the truth
becomes a quest,
and to find the answers
you must be the best.
He was a man
of the Han(d)...
They called him Charlie,...Charlie Chan.

HOOVA

Mother, ship like a mother...
When are you going to get back?
I have been ready,
rough but steady...
I conformed to...
but I always was packed.

The second assistant
from a mighty long distance,
responded to...
But no answer came back...

Mother, ship like a mother...
When are you going to get back?

I Know, I Know, I Know... (My ode to Popeye)

I once was a little snot nosed kid.
I remember everything
my mother did....
Cleaned the refrig with a butcher's knife...
Dressed up like a gypsie late at night...

I know, I know,
I don't 'skis 'skis K'now...
I know.

Tiny had a son
who could take his toenails off...
And what's more he never coughed...
Then one day he dissapeared...
And, noone cared which was really weird...

I know, I know,
I don't 'skis 'skis K'now...
I know.

I once liked a yellow girl...
But she was not a Chinese girl...
Her dad was in another world...
He told me don't take swine from pearls...

I know, I know
I don't 'skis 'skis K'now...
I know


(wouldcha' believe... this one was true...?)

Zippy,
Zheppo,
Zeppa and Jepetha...
Dese was the 4 great theives
of Babdab!
En rarity one entity,
all wonde together.
These four,
of the street front store...
Mixin' with the maize.

Say they of them,
that to find true answers
you must shoothebreeze!

Debris,or de breeze...?

The wind holds the answer.

Ratherlately, engaged
in the hip noose purse suite
of snatchin' hatpins/is
fountain that misery
and mastery are
illogion
contagion and,

Butte wheatherly by rote
or route... am maybe

that all this is wheel!

Rolley a log
from youth to booth,

Woof tuse seepin'

Cool Breeze

The breeze just floats on by...
The children wonder why?
And the caring woman cries,
thru the wind of a thousand sighs...

The nighttime ink so deep...
While in another land they sleep...
But, the wise man always peeks...
and takes and makes his breaks...

The breeze just floats on by...

5'o Clock Shadows

Then wispers an owl of nostalgia,
that calls from a very long way.
That floats over hills of desire,
then fades thru the plains of your past.

So place on your coat as a warning.
For mere hours cannot last too long.
But, so long as you're gone,
we'll just carry on...

5 O'Clock shadows
5 O'Clock shadows...
On D'nile Avenue.

And I was so sure
that I knew you...

5'O Clock shadows
5 O'Clock shadows...
On D'nile Avenue.

Devar Dar Bei Jinn

Well, they say that father knows best,
but Hitler took the acid test...
And this has left an aftertaste
in a world of post atomic waste.

Devar dar bei jinn...
Devar dar bei jinn...
Where is that echo from?
which room is your id in?

Sexual fusion is just an illusion,
without true love.
You think that you know me?
But who could I be,
if I was the one
you thought me to be?

So when you look,
just what do you see?
But a reflection
I hope,
of you in me...

Devar dar bei jinn...
Devar dar bei jinn...
Where is that echo from?
Which room is your id in?

Maze of Life

I was crazy
in the maze of life.
I sey maybe
I can find a way out.
Still I'm lazy,
'though I know the way
to back the thing
I love the most...

So come on, baby
and maybe then you'll know,
how I stay hazy, and then still glow.
I got the rabies
for a taste of life.
And so you have to...
and so I took a bite.

It drove me crazy
in the maze of life.
Still I'm amazed
at all the strife....

And I don't want to,
but still I fight,
"cause I'm not leaving...
'till the late,late show.

True Robots in Love

When you think on a love that's true.
Well, it's always a tale of just two...
Just two more mechs going amok!
And who should have such luck,
but true robots....true robots,
true robots in love.

Well. they gave him a quandry
and it stuck,
so he's stranded in a quatum muck.
Yet he aspires to be a cosmic hunk...
Yeh, he's a real robot in love.

And with her complexion
of stainless steel,
yet she could not be more real,
And for the price of affection she's a steal!
She's a real robot in love...

And these were just two...
of the true robots, true robots,
true robots in love....

Zen Master Presto

It came rolling through
the wind and the rain.
Don't know what they call it
by it's name.
But I want it , and I need it,
so I'm ashamed...
Can't abide in this abode
all alone,
unless you're dead
or made of stone.

So in confusion I had wandered
through the storm,
looking for a hearth
both dry and warm...
But I had stumbled in the midst
of a plain,
filled with a burning pyre
full of pain.
So in my haste
I quickly made my escape,
while the hair was burning
at my nape....

But I can't admit
that I had made a mistake,
for all that I believe is at at stake...
So for your sake
you'd better go.go, go....
See Zen Master Presto!

What it is, what it was...
will be one...
Zen master Presto!

Strange Brew

She said,
come and have a drink,
take some time to think,
but you'd better not wink...

Coffee from a stranger,
Coffee from a stranger,
might just make you change your ways.

Well, come and have a sip,
and eat a little dip,
relax and have a nip...

Coffee from a stranger,
Coffee from a stranger,
might just make you change your ways.

Well it seemed oh so right
just to wile away the night.
Just sip and watch the fight...

Coffee from a stranger,
Coffee from a stranger,
might just make you change your ways.

Awake in the Dark

Well, my dreams have come true,
and it's a real nightmare.
But I'm at a place where
I just don't care.
There's disaster on the wind
and death in the air,
but I just live it up
in a mood that's rare...

I don't have to chase evil
to track it down,
'cause it's standing in front of you
all over town.
So don't talk to me
'cause I'm tired of lies,
and just to jaded
to ever again cry.

Well, there's rage in my heart,
but love in my soul.
I guess this happens
when you finally grow old.

I can spin a strange tale
that's much taller than you,
and what's more
it'll probably be true.

I'm at the end of the rope,
but I'm just hanging on,
so you'll never know
when I'm finally gone...
