Alfred Hitchcock

A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.

That Moment...when the Votes were Counted - Parody Ted HUGHES – Crow

When the votes were counted, conform with their little crosses,
with the ballot-boxes lying empty
like empty promises splashed over a Westminster canvas,

and the only independant candidate left in the world
lay broken
in a vice-like grip, not even a token

opposition remained, - gone forever...
candid expression censored forever,

and the body politic hung drawn and quartered by politicians for ever
on an abandoned world among abandoned constitutions,
free thinkers erased together,

even Crow had to start searching for fresh pickings...

29 July 1991

When The Morning Comes

when the morning comes
and you wake up first
and i am still left naked
beside these white
stained cover sheets

you know i will follow
you in the kitchen
where breakfast is
ready prepared by
your own hands

we look at each other
again this time
new eyes new memories
new anticipations

new love, new selves
new covenants
new promises

old memories,
revivals, reminiscings
we remember last night
when the hugs were tighter
when the sleep was sounder
than ever

what word will i say?
what word? will you tell me?

you hand it my coffee
and you sip yours
no cup is cold
and the brew runs wild
to the top of the ceiling

what word will i say?
our eyes speak.
we sip each other's presence.
the words are useless.
they must remain unspoken

we confess our love
this morning. the words are useless.
they must remain unspoken
our hearts are full.

and then we smile. we sip our souls.

When The Good Lord Talked To Jesus

See me moving without warning.
Fast as mt legs can run
and I'm hanging by a thin wire,
been that way since I was young
Only the good Lord got his reasons,
for turning on his own son.
And he beat up on me real bad.
Bad as a dog can be
He took every smile that I had
And he threw it all back at me
Only the good Lord got his reasons,
Make yo cry until your eyes can't see
Well he burned down all that I had
And he left me beat and blind
Oh he dealt me pain and sorrow
And every fear that he could find
When the good Lord talked to Jesus
Guess I ain't what he had in mind
Oh when the good Lord talked to Jesus
I guess I ain't what he had in mind

When The Good Times Come Again

Every rainbow has to have an end
A pot of gold or dreams foretold
May not be there my friend
In this high and mighty world we live in
Sometimes we have to break
Sometimes we have to bend
Until the good times come again
[Chorus:]
I'll see you then
When the good times come again
When you and I have made it back
From the people and the places we have been
I'll see you then
When the good times come again
The door that we go out of
Is door that we come in
When the good times come again
When the good times come again
Hope we both survive the world out there
You'll never know what wind will blow
So don't forget I care
And don't forget the way we felt together
Sometimes we have to hold
To all the good that's been
[Chorus 3x]

In The Good Old Days (When Times Where Bad)

Wed get up before sun-up to get the work done up
Wed work in the fields till the sun had gone down
Weve stood and weve cried as we have bristly watched
A hailstorm a beatin our crops to the ground
Weve gone to bed hungry many nights in the past
In the good old days when times were bad
Chorus:
No amount of money could buy from me
The memories that I have of then
No amount of money could pay me
To go back and live through it again
Ive seen daddys hands break open and bleed
And Ive seen him work till hes stiff as a board
An Ive seen momma layin in suffer and sickness
In need of a doctor we couldnt afford
Anything at all was more than we had
In the good old days when times were bad
Weve got up before and found ice on the floor
Where the wind would blow snow through the cracks in the wall
And I couldnt enjoy then, havin a boyfriend
I had nothing decent to wear at all
So I long for a love that I never had
In the good old days when times were bad
Repeat chorus
Tag:
In the good old days when times were bad
In the good old days when times were bad

Good v. Evil - watch the rematch in the comfort of your own home!

But hold on a minute –
who set this league up?

Is it a fair game? Are the teams
equally matched? Have they
both got wealthy sponsors?
Can they both afford those
international mercenaries?
Is it - excuse the metaphor -
a level playing field? …

Some say it’s the oldest
religion in the world, with
the largest number of current
devotees.. even those of us
who say we’re agnostic, atheist, or
never got the voting paper,
secretly keep its shrine, deep
in our hearts…

Saint Augustine (who once was a devout
adherent, some say never quite
threw it off, called it ‘original sin’,
the taint of Adam’ – that sort of thing)
blamed the Manicheans; they said
they got it from Mazda, who heard it
from a friend – or was it an enemy? …

Basically, I/you/we/they believe
there are two equal forces battling it out
out there. Which side do you support?
Well, our side of course… out there on
the terraces, we’re all united in this..
though sometimes we have a little quiet fun
being the baddies, under an assumed name…

Some say, an impartial god looks on
as they battle it out; some say,
that’s how it ought to be.. make Mankind
in your image, see where freewill takes them…
if it doesn’t work out, wipe out,
change the rules and start again…

Some say, no god looks on; it’s a fight
to the finish, was you lookin at me, scum..? ..
it’s hate, hate, makes the world go round…

It fills the sports terraces, now that
that wimpy old idea, fair play, but ref's decision
is final, it’s only a game, may the best team win,
is dead and buried…

Politicians find it very handy; when
they’ve finished rubbishing each other,
grabbed a headline and a soundbite, then
they mix good v. evil with
that other useful device: ancient primitive survival
means that we respond more quickly
to threats, than to opportunities…
it’s great for manipulating people;

so there’s an axis of evil out there – those guys
we used to support, welcomed their
extended families into East Side apartments,
took their oil money eagerly on Fifth Avenue –
now they’re a threat, we’re putting
emergency measures in place…
sorry about that, but
we’re here for your protection…
no gray areas any more,
we’re the good guys, John Wayne
played us in the film
it’s how the West was won
by the apple-cheeked against the bad apples;
or formerly, before political correctness intervened,
from those other dark-skinned guys, who
I guess we’ll have to rename…
the battle-lines are clearcut… aren’t they? …

so as we file out from the briefing,
take care out there… and if it gets
all too much, there’s counselling and
the confessional…just in case you thought
the battle was inside yourself…

take the day off; go watch TV; and if
we lose the match, sack the manager,
or boo the ref… switch channels,
there’s an old Western on…
feel good about yourself..

boy, we’d sure miss
those old Manicheans; life would be just so dull
without a bit of drama…oh…
have a nice Thanksgiving Day..

When the prophet, a complacent fat man

When the prophet, a complacent fat man,
Arrived at the mountain-top,
He cried: "Woe to my knowledge!
I intended to see good white lands
And bad black lands,
But the scene is grey."

When The East Awakes

When the east awakes,
The west goes to bed.
The east then keeps vigil...
Until the day does fade,
While the east wants rest.
Just then jumping on his
Feet rises the west.

God has divided duty
In such a divine way!
We must not break His law,
To usher in the good day!

When the killing criminals come

When the killing criminals come
there will be no pistol
or shotgun to protect me
and my family,

since I couldn’t pay the price
that the new government asked
and the police legally robbed me,

but they are incapable of finding
my two stolen cars back
or catching the criminals
who were responsible.

When The Past Was Draged Forward438

when the past has been
draged forward, your find
a child, alone and defeated.
when the past has been draged
forward, your find a child
hiding in his mothers arm.
when the past has been draged
forward, your find a child
with splints and bandages
and a black eye, .
when the past has been draged
forward, your find a child,
waiting for good old dad,
with a gun.

Early Morning When The First Rays Fall

Early morning when the first soft rays fall,
when the awakening sun hangs blood red
this part of the great universe recall,
the awakening has been acquired

when the awakening sun hangs blood red
birds twitter with the jolly songs they sing,
the awakening has been acquired
as the good news of the morning they bring.

birds twitter with the jolly songs they sing
to and thro many insects and bees fly
as the good news of the morning they bring,
fluttering on flowers under the sky.

Early morning when the first soft rays fall,
this part of the great universe recall…

When The Sun Comes Out

When the sun comes out
And that rain stops beatin on my window pane
When the sun comes out
Therell be bluebirds round my door, singin like they did before
That ol storm broke out
And my man/gal walked off and left me in the rain
Though hes/shes gone I doubt
If hell/shell stay away for good,Id stop livin if he/she should
Love is funny, its not always peaches, cream and honey
Just when everything looked bright and sunny
Suddenly the cyclone came, Ill never be the same
Til that sun comes out
And the rain stops beatin on my window pane
If my heart holds out
Let it rain and let it pour, it may not be long before
Theres a knockin at my door
Then youll know the one I love walked in
When the sun comes out

When the ravens sing...

When the ravens sing at the dark naked trees.
Where the princess of the night dresses in silky black sheets.
My soul sin.

Sacrificed by the nocturnal spheres of flames.
Hypnotized by offers of pleasures
Layers of light, breath, between her moaning legs, hot and wet
Like open wings of a swan swing at the blue moon.

Contemplating, the rise, of the devil course, upon the weak flesh.
So good that death, may be sweet in our tongue.
Swallow from a ruthless world.
That you may be, love no more.

Until the flash redeems, the souls.
That maybe no Gods temptations
And the afterlife, dead will never rise.

Burn away like flamed blind sky.
Sorrow eyes my hands shame, cover
Spirit and soul evaporate.
From my cast body.

When The Sun Goes Down Tomorrow

Thumbing for a ride by the edge of the road
With a brown paper bag to hold my clothes
But tonight Im going home where I belong
If the good lords willing and the creek dont rise
And if my luck holds out, and I catch me a ride
When the sun goes down tomorrow, I should be home
This big city aint no kind of place
For a country girl with a friendly face
If you smile people look at your funny, they take it wrong
They laugh at my talkin and clothes I wear
They put me down and they call me square
But tonight Im going home where I belong
Chorus:
Im goin back to the people I love
Back to the place that I dream of
Its true that theres no place like home sweet home
The one I want to see the most
Is the boy who begged me not to go
When the sun goes down tomorrow
Tag:
Tonight Im going back where I belong

When The Day Goes Down

Well dont you cry now -
Dont go drowning in your tears
Havent you learnt anything
After all these years?
All gods little children
Are beautiful & pure
And youre as good
As all of them
Of this you can be sure
And we are just the same
Underneath the shadows
Of the sun
And we are just the same
No more no less than anyone
All the people
Of this lonely world
Have got some pain inside
Dont go thinking
Youre the only one
Who ever broke right down
And cried
Thats when the rain comes down
Thats when the rain comes down
And this is for the broken dreamers
This is for vacant souls
This is for the hopeless losers
This is for the hopeless fools
And the burnt out
And the useless
And the lonely & the weak
And the lost & the degraded
& the too dumb to speak
And the day goes down
Thats when the day
Goes down

Early morning when the first rays fall (pantoum)

Early morning when the first rays fall,
when the sun hangs blood red
this part of the universe recall,
in moments of awakening that has been acquired.

When the sun hangs blood red,
birds twitter with the songs they sing
in moments of awakening that has been acquired
as the good news of the morning that they bring.

Birds twitter with the songs they sing,
to and thro insects and bees fly
as the good news of the morning that they bring,
with butterflies rocking on flowers under the blue sky.

To and thro insects and bees fly,
the buds of morning glories open to the sun,
with butterflies rocking on flowers under the blue sky,
ants in brigades begin their daily fun.

The buds of morning glories open to the sun
early morning when the first rays fall,
ants in brigades begin their daily fun
in moments of awakening that has been acquired

When the Buzz Stops

When the buzz stops, remember the bees will be gone
When the buzz stops, remember the petals will be torn
When the buzz stops, remember the summer will be over
When the buzz stops, remember the fall will be near

Oh smile and smile and smile
Lets have a good time
Forget about the winter
Forget about the cold
Lets have a good time a really good time...

When the sun dips
In the lake edge
See the moon rise
From the forest edge
It does not matter
Whether its day or night
As long as you
Yeah you my girl you
Keep my world bright

Oh smile and smile and smile
Lets have a good time
Forget about the winter
Forget about the cold
Lets have a good time a really good time...

When the time is over
Let the sorrows begin
When the moon is dark
Let the clouds cry
Naah there is more time
So light up your smile
Lets have a good time my girl lets have a good time...!

When The Levee Breaks

If it keeps on rainin, levees goin to break,
If it keeps on rainin, levees goin to break,
When the levee breaks Ill have no place to stay.
Mean old levee taught me to weep and moan,
Lord, mean old levee taught me to weep and moan,
Got what it takes to make a mountain man leave his home,
Oh, well, oh, well, oh, well.
Dont it make you feel bad
When youre tryin to find your way home,
You dont know which way to go?
If youre goin down south
They go no work to do,
If you dont know about chicago.
Cryin wont help you, prayin wont do you no good,
Now, cryin wont help you, prayin wont do you no good,
When the levee breaks, mama, you got to move.
All last night sat on the levee and moaned,
All last night sat on the levee and moaned,
Thinkin bout me baby and my happy home.
Going, gon to chicago,
Gon to chicago,
Sorry but I cant take you.
Going down, going down now, going down.

When The Tigers Broke Free

It was just before dawn
One miserable morning in black forty four.
When the forward commander
Was told to sit tight
When he asked that his men be withdrawn.
And the generals gave thanks
As the other ranks held back
The enemy tanks for a while.
And the anzio bridgehead
Was held for the price
Of a few hundred ordinary lives.
And old king george
Sent mother a note
When he heard that father was gone.
It was, I recall,
In the form of a scroll,
With gold leaf and all.
And I found it one day
In a drawer of old photographs, hidden away.
And my eyes still grow damp to remember
His majesty signed
With his own rubber stamp.
It was dark all around.
There was frost in the ground
When the tigers broke free.
And no one survived
From the royal fusiliers company c.
They were all left behind,
Most of them dead,
The rest of them dying.
And thats how the high command
Took my daddy from me.

When The Blue Hour Comes

Orbison/ crowell
The good times are all gone
The night keeps coming on so strong
You cant hold on, no matter what you do
Will there be someone who cares for you
When the blue hour comes?
When the blue hour comes?
And when your restless heart
Tears your world apart
And everywhere you turn
Its falling down on you
Will there be a light that shines for you?
When the blue hour comes for you
If theres anything that you would have me do
Just call on me and Ill be coming through
I will always be there for you
When the blue hour comes
When the blue hour comes
Good times dont last forever
Sometimes its now or never
Darling, reach out for me
You know where Ill be
I will always be there for you
When the blue hour comes
When the blue hour comes
When the blue hour comes for you
If theres anything that you would have me do
Just call on me and Ill be coming through
I will always be there for you
When the blue hour comes
When the blue hour comes
I will always be there
When the blue hour comes
When the blue hour comes
When the blue hour comes....(repeat to fade)
