Bedtime For Toys

Close your eyes, beddy bye tin soldier,
Mommy says that its time for sleep,
If my folks were wiser and older,
Theyd know kids and toys dont need sleep.
Dont be bad little cotton dolly,
See how nice mickey mouse sleeps now?
Even my brass drummer boy has stopped all his noise,
Cause he knows its past bedtime for toys.
(speaking)
Ya know, every christmas santa claus goes all over the world with his reindeer,
Sled, and a big bag of toys and hell come to your house this year too.
But sometimes, just sometimes, he doesnt have enough time to see every little boy and girl because the world is so big.
So maybe we should sing a song for all the children that santa didnt visit.
Bless the child who has no tin soldier,
No brass drummer boy to put to bed.
He will still grow wiser and older,
Loving one small rag doll instead.
He wont have a cotton dolly,
Mickey mouse wont come to his house.
Hold that rag doll to your heart, nothing can destroy
The beauty one shall find in one small toy

Tin Soldier

I am the little tin soldier
That wants to jump into your fire
You, oh, look in your eye
A dream passing by in the skies
I dont understand
All I need is to treat me like a man
I aint no child, take me like I am
Ive got some love
That belongs to you
Ill do anything that you want me to
Ill sing any song that you want me
To sing to you
All I need is your whispered hello
Smile smelting the snow
Nothing heard
Your eyes, oh, deeper than time
I see a love that wont
Rhyme without words
So now bless my way
I need help to show me
Things to say
Give me your love
Before mine breaks away
I dont need no aggrevation
I just got to make you
I just got to make you understand
I just want some reaction
Someone to give me satisfaction
I love you

Smiles melting the snow with one word

Say love that wont die without words
So now Ive lost my way

Before I fade away

Something to give me satisfaction

The Christmas Song

(chestnuts roasting on an open fire)
(mel torme, robert wells)
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by the choir
Folks dressed up like ?
Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Helps to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight
They know that santa claus is on his way
Hes loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mothers child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly
And so Im offering this simple phrase
To kids from 1 to 92
Although its been said many times many ways
Merry christmas to you
Oh, and so Im offering this simple phrase
To kids from 1 to 92
And although its been said many times many ways
Merry christmas
Merry christmas
Merry christmas to you
(whispers) merry christmas

From: Time In The Rock

XXIV
If one voice, not another, must speak first,
out of the silence, the stillness, the preceding—
speaking clearly, speaking slowly, measuring calmly
the heavy syllables of doubt, or of despair—
speaking passionately, speaking bitterly, hunger or hope
ordering the words, that are like sounds of flame—:
if one speaks first, before that other or the third,
out of the silence bringing the dark message,
the grave and great acceptance of the rock,
the huge world, held in the huge hand of faith:


and if it says, I hold the world like this;
here in the light, amid these crumbling walls;
here in the half-light, the deceptive moment,
here in the darkness like a candle lifted—:
take it, relieve me of it, bear it away;
have it, now and forever, for your own;
this that was mine, this that my voice made mine,
this that my word has shaped for you—


if this voice speaks before us, speaks before
ourselves can speak, challenging thus the dark;
waking the sleeping watcher from his sleep,
altering the dreamer’s dream while still he dreams;
so that on waking—ah, what despair he knows!
to learn that while he slept the world was made—
made by that voice, and himself made no less,
and now inalterably curved forever—

yes, if to wake, to cease to dream, be this,
to face a self made ready while we slept,
shaped in the world’s shape by the single voice—
if thus we wake too late and find ourselves
already weeping, already upon the road
that climbs past shame and pain to crucifixion—
seeing at once, with eyes, just opened, the world,
vast, bright, and cruciform, on which so soon
ascending we must die—
and to look backward,
but know no turning back; to go forward,
even as we turn our faces to the past;
still gazing downward from the hill we climb,
searching the dark for that strange dream we had,
which the voice altered and broke—
ah, can it comfort us,
us helpless, us thus shaped by a word,
sleepwalking shadows in the voice-shaped world,
ah, can it comfort us that we ourselves
will bear the word with us, we too, we too
to speak, again, again, again, again,—
ourselves the voice for those not yet awakened,—
altering the dreams of those who dream, and shaping,
while still they sleep, their inescapable pain—?

LX
The chairback will cast a shadow on the white wall,
you can observe its shape, the square of paper
will receive and record the impulse of the pencil
and keep it too till time rubs it out
the seed will arrange as suits it the shape of the earth
to right or left thrusting, and the old clock
goes fast or slow as it rusts or is oiled.
These things or others for your consideration
these changes or others, these records
or others less permanent. Come if you will
to the sea’s edge, the beach of hard sand,
notice how the wave designs itself in quick bubbles
the wave’s ghost etched in bubbles and then gone,
froth of a suggestion, and then gone.
Notice too the path of the wind in a field of wheat,
the motion indicated. Notice in a mirror
how the lips smile, so little, and for so little while.
Notice how little, and how seldom, you notice
the movement of the eyes in your own face, reflection
of a moment’s reflection. What were you thinking
to deliver to the glass this instant of change, what margin
belonged only to the expectation of echo
and was calculated perhaps to that end, what was left
essential or immortal?

Your hand too,
gloved perhaps, encased, but none the less
already bone, already a skeleton,
sharp as a fingerpost that points to time
what record does it leave, and where, what paper
does it inscribe with an immortal message?
where, and with what permanence, does it say ‘I’?
Perhaps giving itself to the lover’s hand
or in a farewell, or in a blow,
or in a theft, which will pay interest.
Perhaps in your own pocket, jingling coins,
or against a woman’s breast. Perhaps holding
the pencil dictated by another’s thought.

These things do not perplex, these things are simple,—
but what of the heart that wishes to survive change
and cannot, its love lost in confusions and dismay—?
what of the thought dispersed in its own algebras,
hypothesis proved fallacy? what of the will
which finds its aim unworthy? Are these, too, simple?

LXVII
Walk man on the stage of your own imagining
peel an orange or dust your shoe, take from your pocket
the soiled handkerchief and blow your nose
as if it were indeed necessary to be natural
and speak too if an idea should recommend itself
speak to the large bright imaginary audience
that flattering multiplication of yourself
so handsomely deployed and so expectant
tell them between flingings of orange peel
or such other necessary details of your rôle
precisely what they are, or what you are
since—lamentably—they are so much the same thing.
Decrepit inheritor of the initial star!
do you yourself sometimes imagine
or even perhaps say to that peculiar audience
something of this? as that yourself and they
comprise one statement? supercilious
the actor may be, often is, to those who hear him
but to be supercilious to one’s self
even in one’s dramatic moments!—marvellous
decay of what in God’s first declaration
might have been good.

The Brave Tin Soldier

A one-legged tin soldier is cruelly mocked by other toys because of his deformity. The soldier falls in love with a toy ballerina who is desired by the toy king. The king exercises his military power to get the girl for himself. The tale ends tragically, with a surprisingly graphic execution by firing squad. This is probably too violent and weird for little kids. There are some celebrity caricature toys, including a Groucho Marx jack-in-the-box.

Tin Soldier Man

Just a quiet city sport[? ]
With a wife and little kids to support
So immaculately dressed when he walks
Like a soldier on parade
Hes a tin soldier man
Living in a little tin wonderland
Very happy little tin soldier man
When you set him on your knee
Every day you see his army march down the street
Changing guards at the high road
Hes a tin soldier man
Wickie wa-waddle doo[? ]
And hes got a little tin lady too
Just to put a little shine on his shoes
And keep his uniform tidy
Hes a tin soldier man
Wickie wa-waddle doo[? ]
And hes got a little tin lady too
Just to put a little shine on his shoes
And make his uniform tidy
Hes a tin soldier man
Living in a little tin wonderland
Very happy little tin soldier man
When you sit him on your knee
Hes a tin soldier man
Hes a tin soldier man

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

Christmas toys all over the place
Little johnny wears a funny smile on his face
Johnny has a secret, and a secret he must share
He wants to tell somebody, so he tells his teddy bear
I saw mommy kissing santa claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night
Well, she didnt see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peek
She though that I was tucked up in my bedroom fast asleep
Then I saw mommy tickle santa claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
What a laugh it would have been
If daddy had walked in
And saw mommy kissing santa claus last night
I saw mommy kissing santa claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night
Well, she didnt see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peek
She though that I was tucked up in my bedroom fast asleep
But I know I saw mommy tickle santa claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
What a laugh it would have been
If daddy had walked in
And saw mommy kissing santa claus last night
And saw mommy kissing santa claus last night (one more time!)
And saw mommy kissing santa claus last night
On the lips!

Sweet Kisses

Couldnt look me in the eye
He apologizes
He didnt make enough to take me out tonight
I beg him not to worry
Please dont turn away
I dont need a world of riches
I just need a little time with you and
Chorus
Sweet kisses
All I really need is
Sweet kisses
Thats what moves me
His lips are pure emotion
He smiles because he knows
How much I love the way he makes me feel inside
He answers all my wishes
Who could ask for more
Doesnt have to say I love you
All I need he tells me with his
Chorus
He heals me, he touches me down to my soul
My hearts beating out of control
I just need a little time with you
Chorus
Sweet kisses baby
Its all I really need from you
Dont need your money baby
Just want you time now baby
Cause thats what moves me honey

Memphis Time

(scott johnson, jesse valenzuela)
Hey, now its all right
Hey now, its fine, its cool
Seems weve done our worst
Its time to head for school
And so we tripped upstairs
I seen the sun come up
Judging by your shape
I think youve had enough
Its memphis time
Just string that old guitar
Tune it up to memphis time
Hey, now I couldnt know
Baby, I couldnt tell
Just whats going on
Inside of someone else
You know that this small world
Sometimes this big town
It can drag you up
As well as drag you down
Its memphis time
Just string that old guitar
Tune it up to memphis
You cant say that Ive been right
I cant say that youve been wrong
We knew it all along
(take cover scotty)
So we tripped upstairs
I seen the sun come up
Judging by your shape
I think youve enough
Its memphis time
Just string that old guitar
And tune it up to memphis time...

Christmas Pictures With Santa Claus

Well its three weeks till Christmas
and the Goff family pictures with
Santa Claus have yet to be taken.

I'm like any other wife or mother
who has a unreasonable lazy lump
of a husband and ungreatful
children all I'm asking for is one
little picture to slap on a Christmas
Card is that too much to expect?
I'd get more respect from a monkey.

Well the apt. is for 5: 00p.m
and its already 4: 15p.m.
Well the picture has been taken
family and friends please forgive
me for these pictures there was
no time for retakes.
You have witnessed the
Goff Family and what really like
a barrel of funny monkeys.
husband- sleeping
Kristina- eyes closed
Billy-tongue sticking out
Dillon- fingers in ears.

'' MERRY CHRISTMAS''
and a Darn holly jolly
HAPPY NEW YEAR

Mom needs a stiff drink


dedicate to all wives and mothers

The Kid

Last night I dreamed I was kid again
All the things I used to do I went and did again
Spent the afternoon with my best and closest friend
Wanderin through the days we thought would never end
It was back when Id still get things from santa claus
Back when he believed in me and overlooked the flaws
That can grow inside until it hides the perfect little boy inside the man
Im not a kid anymore, but I still believe that those miracles occur
Thats not something up his sleeve
And that the reindeer pull the sleigh and the elves still make the toys
Santa gives away to all the girls and boys
Tonight Ill climb back in that bed again
Try to live out all my dreams inside my head again
After christmas eve with my best and closest friend
Who still believes the worlds greatest dad just tucked him in
And I know that hell be looking out for santa claus
And Im sure beyond a doubt hell overlook the flaws
That will grow inside until it hides this perfect little boy inside a man
Im not a kid anymore and I still believe that miracles occur
Thats not something up his sleeve
And that the reindeer pull the sleigh and the elves do make the toys
Santa gives away to all the girls and boys

Merry Christmas Santa Happy New Year

Santa Claus had done his very merry best.
He was almost ready for Christmas.
The reindeer were eager to make a start.
The elves were packing toys furiously,
Like there was no tomorrow.
Yes, time waits for no man...

Santa Claus made a final inspection.
His sleigh was in tip-top condition.
Everyone stopped to say the Christmas Prayer.
The magic moment was upon them all.
Once in his sleigh, he gave them a wave.
Suddenly Santa was on his way...

The reindeer flew above the clouds
With Rudolph's red nose aglow...
And Santa sang the song he wrote
Then shared out some of the mince pies.
Three hours later, the mince pies had run out
And half the world had received their presents.

Just three more hours left to do.
Rudolph's red nose was still shining bright.
Santa was getting tired, but didn't get caught.
Finally the last chimney was in sight...
Then it was all over and done with.
Santa's sleigh was empty. Well done, everybody!

Back at the North Pole, the party was on!
Santa's other half was rather merry.
The elves were dancing on the tables.
The forest fairies were visiting again.
Santa returned and the reindeer joined the party.
Rudolph had a few drinks... Ah, bless!

They don't call him the red nose reindeer for nothing!

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

I saw mommy kissing santa claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night.
She didnt see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep;
She thought that I was tucked up
In my bedroom fast asleep.
Then, I saw mommy tickle santa claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white;
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing santa claus last night.

Why Do They Hide It?

At Night The World Sleeps
When The World Sleeps It Dreams
Closes It's Eyes And See Scenes From Some Other Side
By Sunrise When It Hits Day
The World Awakes
Out Of It's Dreams Out Of Happiness
Why Does The World Want To Live Reality So Dangerous?
But In Dreams It Desires Love And Peace
The Image Shows When Eyes Are Closed
Why Do They Hide It And Let No One Know?
Why Does The World Cover Their Desires With Theirs Eye Lids?

A Christmas Letter

(gene nelson, john greenebaum, paul nelson)
At an antique desk
An old man sits alone
Its christmas eve
And its almost time to go
He signs his name to a letter he just wrote
Then he reads it back with a voice as soft as snow
Chorus:
I want peace on earth for christmas
In a world where theres not one hungry child
They would hope and faith
Conquers fear and hate
All Im asking for is a little more love
Then he walks outside
And he climbs up on his sleigh
And calls out to his reindeer
Off they fly away
Oh tonight hell make a million dreams appear
While he wishes that his own dreams would come true this year
Repeat chorus
That they would hope and faith
Conquers fear and hate
All Im asking for is a little more love

I Will Raise, I Will!

I want to Rise
I want To rise from this cage
To the infinite realms
Of my own
One can't gauge,
You may write scriptures for me
Just to keep me down confined to the cage,
I learnt from history
Of saints,
How you trap us into this cage
With your sweet coated bitter pills,
twisted lies, take us to hills,
Wherein you push us to death or
leave us alone at dead end!

You may put me into
dirt or mist covered path
But still, like speck of eternal, I want To rise.
To stand on my own
and see what is what!

Does my happiness upset you?
Why you want me in gloom? 'Cause I think, what am I,
I've got, love in my heart.
Infinitely, the infinite,
I see in myself,
Infinite wells of infinite depth
I fill with love all wells
And with all knowledge,
I threw all in it,
Even I jumped into them, to get dissolved
Pumping not necessary,
love overflow in my life.
Just like irrigation to gardens, And feed every plant to make them swing their head
With fruits and flowers to divine song

Sun of knowledge shine,
Each and every soul is your shrine,
Why can't shed ignorance of mine,
You are mine, you are mine of knowledge,
You are mine of love in heart of mine!
When in the certainty of tides,
Just like drops of wave spring high,
Still I want To rise.

I am that, see me broken dust of that?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like wet dirty cloth?
Weakened by my soulful desires, and feelings
Is my naughtyness offence?
can't you see your child at play,
you made it awful hard
'Cause I laugh and smiled like kid
I've got
mines of love to bid,
Diving into depth of my own.
You may test me, my words and deeds,
You may set filters,
Still I can pass as I am dissolved myself
Then with your eyes,
You may ask me to see
your divine fullness,
But still,
like light in vacuum, I'll rise.
Let my bliss take me to you!
when it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got everything,
At the meeting of my brains I want To rest!
Out of the huts of history of long pain of longing
I want To rise
Up from a past you are my root
I want rise I'm a black ocean having Lord flloting on me, sailing and smiling wide,
I bear in my mind, I am only a witness to every wave and tide.
loving nights of terror
and
smiling at fear I rise
Into that infinite bliss
wondrously clear
I rise
digesting all that my
ancestors gave,
I am the dream,
I was the slave, to my own folly
in my own dream.
I want To rise above all dreams,
I will rise my self above all
I will rise to that,
I am that, I am that who don't know who I am
And no one can't know
what I am!
