Forgotten Day – FAWM Song

I like my life with a tiny side of darkness, no silly rainbows in the sky or butterflies floating in the wind. I like to see a bit more rain than sunshine, that’s all I’m asking for. But you say we should all be happy, but sometimes, you need to be sad. And if there’s a chance you have to cry, don’t hold it in, just let the tears fall out. Just free your mind from the false happiness you’re hiding, and everything will be OK.

I like my life, with a tiny hint of drama, the kind that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I like how things never seem to go your way, because your way is the dumbest way to go. And if you were to ask me how I liked myself, I would say that I’m just fine with who I am. And if I asked you the same thing, you’d say that you were born a certain way, and I know that that’s a lie…

I like my life with a tiny side of danger, the danger that makes you think twice before committing a sin. I like my life with more edginess, because those who play it safe don’t go anywhere. And if you told me that I was a fool, I would say, well, so are you, because the devil is sitting beside you telling you lies while you continue to ignore God at your own peril…

(instrumental solo)

I like my life with a tiny side of darkness, no silly rainbows in the sky or butterflies floating in the wind. I like to see a bit more rain than sunshine, that’s all I’m asking for. But you say we should all be happy, but sometimes, you need to be sad. And if there’s a chance you have to cry, don’t hold it in, just let the tears fall out. Just free your mind from the false happiness you’re hiding, and everything will be OK.

It Was All a Dream – FAWM Song

It was all a dream, what my life has now become; I don’t know how I came to this point in time. It was all a dream, as I don’t know who I’m supposed to be; how do I live in a world that destroys all dreams?

Living in a world that forbids you to dream, you have to accept your lot in this life. You have limits placed on you, you can never advance on the ladder, and to try to defy the odds is just asking for pain.

It was all a dream, what my life has now become; I don’t know how I came to this point in time. It was all a dream, as I don’t know who I’m supposed to be; how do I live in a world that destroys all dreams?

I cannot live in this hateful world, so all I can do is dream. But I can’t give up so easily, not when I have the power to turn my dreams into reality…

In time, the dreams that were rejected will fall upon someone who can do nothing else but dream. But for those who settle for a life of disappointment, disappointment is all you’re going to have. You need to get rid of reality and start in your dreams, for it does no good to live in the real world and forget to dream…

One day there will be a time when the real world is no more and we will have nothing else to do but live in our dreams…

It was all a dream, what my life has now become; I don’t know how I came to this point in time. It was all a dream, as I don’t know who I’m supposed to be; how do I live in a world that destroys all dreams?

But unlike the rest of the world, I’ll never let go of my dreams…

No Twerking on the Dance Floor (a parody of Midnight Starr’s no parking on the dance floor) – FAWM Song

(The sound of cars honking their horns at a local club is heard. A young woman is surrounded by several angry people. Everybody is yelling at each other.)

Woman: Hey you’re not supposed to be twerking here! This is a dance club, not an adults-only exhibit!

Younger woman: You need to shut up; I can do what I want!

Woman: How dare you talk to me like that! You are very rude! Plus, twerking is very degrading to women everywhere!

Man: Yeah, get out of here with your twerking crap, will ya?

(A police siren is heard as a cop arrives on the scene)

Cop: [to young woman] Excuse me, ma’am, but you are in a “no twerking zone”. If you don’t move the rest of that body in the next five seconds, I’m going to have to give you a ticket. Now get going!

(music)

Me: We’re at the club tonight, but you’re in the red zone
If you don’t want to get kicked out, your better start moving
Cuz if you break the law, you’ll have to pay a huge fine
But things are so much better when you play by the rules

It’s so easy it’s so right, it’s so easy to dance with your body, baby
it’s so easy it’s so right, it’s so easy you can dance all night, but

No twerking baby; no twerking on the dance floor
(Don’t make me say it again)
No twerking baby; no twerking on the dance floor
(Come on now and let’s get dancing)

Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah (let’s dance now)
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah
oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah (let’s dance now)
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah

Music violations are easy to fix, because the DJ will fix it in the mix
Raise your hands up and move your feet, it’s so easy to keep up with the beat

It’s so easy it’s so right, it’s so easy to dance with your body, baby
it’s so easy it’s so right, it’s so easy you can dance all night, but

No twerking baby; no twerking on the dance floor
(Don’t make me say it again)
No twerking baby; no twerking on the dance floor
(Come on now and let’s get dancing)

Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah (let’s dance now)
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah (let’s dance now)
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah

(Brief instrumental solo)

Don’t twerk your booty, it’s time to dance
Don’t twerk your booty, it’s time to dance
Don’t twerk your booty, it’s time to dance
Don’t twerk your booty, it’s time to dance

No twerking baby; no twerking on the dance floor
No twerking baby; no twerking on the dance floor

Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah

FAWM song: Dammit, Gandalf! from The Unexpected Musical (based on An Unexpected Journey)

Bilbo: I can’t believe you would do this, Gandalf! I thought I made it perfectly clear when I said “NO, I don’t want to go on any adventures!” But then you went behind my back and invited some dwarves over when I clearly didn’t want any guests!

Gandalf: But Bilbo….

Bilbo: I’ve had enough of your adventure crap!

Gandalf: And I’ve had enough of you being a homebody.

Bilbo: GAH!!!!

(music starts)

Dammit Gandalf, what were you thinking? I didn’t ask for this evening!
Dammit, Gandalf, and guess what? There’s dwarves everywhere messing up my house!
They have taken all the food and drank all my wine, and I’m not going to mention what they did to the toilet!
You weren’t thinking when you told them to come to my house
And now I don’t know how I’m going to clean up this mess!

Dammit, Gandalf, I can’t believe you, you’re nothing but a guy who goes around causing trouble!
Dammit, Gandalf! And believe it or not, I’m going to call my friends and have them kick the dwarves out!
I’m a Baggins of Bag End, or have you forgot, and I can’t just drop everything for your silly little adventure
Dammit Gandalf, you are such a jerk; I was doing just fine until you walked back into my life!

Kili: Hey Bilbo, we’re washing your dishes
Fili: And we’re cleaning up your kitchen
Kili: We even unclogged your toilet
Fili: You think we’re destroying your house? Don’t be so uptight!
Dwarves: You think we’re going to blunt the knives, and you think we’re going to bend the forks? You think we’re going to smash the bottles and you think we’re going to burn the corks? Chip the glasses and crack the plates? That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf, what is wrong with you? I bet you’re senile, that’s true!
Dammit Gandalf, it’s no surprise, another dwarf will walk through the door and you’ll set me up with him!

Hobbits: There he is, the great disturber of the Peace of the Shire! We are Hobbits, we live our lives the way they’re supposed to be. We don’t care for the outside world and we don’t care about adventures; we just want to grow our plants and to be left alone!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf, what were you thinking? I didn’t ask for this evening!
Dammit Gandalf, what is wrong with you? I bet you’re senile, that’s true!
Dammit Gandalf!

Hobbits: UUUGGGHHH! UUUGGGHHH!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf!

Hobbits: UUUGGGHHH! UUUGGGHHH!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf!

Hobbits: UUUGGGHHH! UUUGGGHHH!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf!

Hobbits: UUUGGGHHH! UUUGGGHHH!

Bilbo: Dammit Gandalf!

Hobbits: UUUGGGHHH! UUUGGGHHH!

(A knock is heard at the door. Music shuts off)

Gandalf: He is here.

We Need Music (NaPoWriMo, Day 5)

We need music the way a poor man needs water

We need music the way the sky needs rain

We need music the way the world wants peace

But when we deny ourselves music in the name of safety

We do nothing but destroy ourselves

Ode to the Beatles

Here’s a tribute to a group of men
Who left their home in England
They came here and changed how we felt about music

It was the one thing we needed
After a tragedy nearly tore apart the entire nation
These men brought joy to the world with their music

Happy 50 years to the Beatles
May your music never be forgotten

Ode to a Tragedy

Monument at the crash site of the airplane car...
Monument at the crash site of the airplane carrying Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens; “The Day the Music Died” (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

They said it was the day that the music died
Three musicians were killed, many people cried
It was a tragedy for rock and roll

Three men used their music
To bring joy to the world

But now we’re still here and they are all musical ghosts
We’re now remembering them because of “American Pie
Never in life will we forget them
And the music they made for us

This poem was written in memory of Buddy Holly, J. P. Richardson (a.k.a. the Big Bopper), and Ritchie Valens, three great musicians who died before their time.
