The Lyrics

(NOTE: I submitted this parody earlier but noticed I had changed one word that I should not have. I normally would not ask this because I know the rules, but since I wrote this especially for a young girl that seemed troubled I would appreciate it if you could pull that version and post this one instead. Please don't print this part in parentheses in the posting.) KYLIEZ, you asked for a "song or a card", well, you got it. This is for you. Best Wishes, Sincerely.
I read the piece submitted by you
to this Website location
Between the lines I read
about your pain and alienation
Your told your tale for us to see
hoping for Communication

There's real pain in your world
and it exceeds my comprehension
It stunned my eyes to see it here
that's no exaggeration
I hoped that my reply to you to
did give some consolation

Saying that "I wish you well"
Don't solve your situation
I sense the hurt you feel within
Internal wars are raging

You're torn and feel scorned
Hurt words poured fourth
Asked for some Communication
Here is my Communication

Scary, this world, so confusing to a girl
who is living in your situation
A teenage rite; feeling pain inside
Can't get by that implication
and life seems hard, now you bear the scars
Of failed Communication

Face hides tears but they're always near
Crystal clear when one reads your statements
No strain for me to hear your fears
Do I have a human obligation?
I say "look for a brighter day"
That is my Communication

Scores and raves and modest praise are of little consolation
to all the hurt you feel inside; doesn't ease your alienation

You're torn; feeling scorned
Hurt words pour fourth
Asked for some Communication
Here is my Communication

Here is some Communication
Please read this Communication

(Instrumental break)


Mistrust and hurt are a heavy load
Their weight surely is a distraction
Someone is trying to reach your heart
Will his words get desired reaction?
He wrote them all just for you, girl
They're his Communication

Yes, I say "I wish you well"
but words have limitations
They're only just words; won't fix your mess
But please hear what I'm saying

You're torn and feel scorned
Hurt words poured fourth
Asked for some Communication
Here is my Communication
This is my Communication
Please read this Communication

Paul, this is probably one of the best and most sensitive works you've written. 5's

Adagio & Kristof - Thank you. It's been a long time and times have certainly gotten much more complicated for young people growing up today than they were when I was that young. It's boggling how many more potential dangers and distractions they face today. I hope that Kylie has gotten or gets a chance to read this.

Kyliez - You're welcome. All the coincidences of that morning told me I needed to try. I'm not a big believer in super-natural or para-normal or whatever, but I don't know. So I went with what felt right. It always has to come down to that, really.

superb Paul...really wise and comforting words .... well done

Thanks, Martha. By the way, it turned out the girl was alright. Just a medium-sized case of "teen-age blues". She lives in Melbourne, Australia and seems very nice.

(ABCs) I think adagio did one a while back that was hauntingly beautiful and this one gave me a similar cathartic experience. Are you an Aussie too, Paul?
Paul Robinson - September 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Jake/Luke - No, probably about as far from it (geographically, anyway) as you can get. Born on the Eastern Coast of the United States (Connecticut), but I've lived in Los Angeles and the surrounding vicinity since I was 9 (1959). I mentioned where the young girl was from because she wrote me a note and mentioned it. Thanks for checking this one out.

(ABC) I'm giving you a 1-point for the competition Paul, just for the work you did here. Very nice.

(ABC) Wow....heavy-duty & from-the-heart.
Paul Robinson - September 07, 2004 - Report this comment
Agrimorfee - Thanks, I appreciate it. Johnny D, yeah, it actually was. The girl had posted a parody of the same original song called "Communication" that really did sound troubled and when I read it I really thought she might BE in serious trouble. I lot of MY lines answered what she wrote on the same corresponding line of her piece. The whole sequence of events was very odd...when I woke up that morning, for some reason I put that VERY song track on and played it maybe 5 or 6 times before I logged on - I usually don't listen to the Chili Peppers 1st thing in the morning. Then I saw someone had used that OS for a parody, so I just had to look....and this is what followed...

You're another one that should write originals.

That was lovely Paul.

(ABC's) Paul - You wrote this during my three month break from the site. Adagio kind of filled me in on what you did here and some background on this. Just want you to know what a decent thing I thought this was. God Bless!
Paul Robinson - September 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Rick D - So you're telling me to get off my can and actually produce something ORIGINAL? I guess the tricky part would be figuring out what music it could be set to. It's an interesting idea. I'm really hankering to head up there for an open mic night and maybe the chance to get your ideas on a few things. Thanks! Per - Thanks, I appreciate that. Guy, it was such an unusual situation - Everything that happened that morning starting from the moment I woke up just felt different, almost as if the events were designed to move me "front and center" to that girls. I suppose at any point I could have shook my head and gone on about my day, but I might always have wondered. It was so very interesting - I read her piece and posted a lengthy comment encouraging her...sort of a "hang in there, people care" type of thing, but as soon as I clicked to post it I knew that I should do more and was capable of doing more. So there was no reason not to...I really appreciate your remark here, Guy. When we take the time to look past all the silly stuff we do here to amuse and entertain ourselves and others, and the occasional politically or culturally inspired jabs we toss around sometimes (especially at this point in a critical election year), we should not be surprised to find a rather large number of few decent, caring folks dropping in and around this place. I decided a long time ago that if I spotted little opportunities where I could possibly do some good; offer a positive option or kind word to someone that I thought might need it that I just ought to go ahead and do it, even if I occasionally misperceive a situation and make more of it than it is. Well, I guess that's a thorough enough job of patting myself on the back for now...later...

Paul, you've earned Rick Duncan's highest compliment (that you've got what it takes to write originals) --- good going, dude!
Rick D - September 08, 2004 - Report this comment
I'm not sure you were joking, Paul. What I meant was original with no reference to an existing song. I could set it to music for you. I've had this discussion with Johnny and Adagio. There are many writers here that can do good things outside of parody, sometimes they just don't know it yet. If you write something like that, send it to me privately. I did one with Johnny, though it was based on a parody.
Paul Robinson - September 08, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, JD...That's kind of what I thought he meant. Rick - Yeah, I WAS taking it is a compliment...and kind of putting a little "reverse spin" on my reply back to hide how much I was blushing over your observation. It is SOMETHING I've thought about, but I haven't developed a regular "creative mode" to that gets me up to the plate with a bat in my hands (how's that for a weird metaphor?) With parodies the ideas get triggered rather easily and that steers me toward "story" and "pace & rhyme projections
neminem - September 12, 2004 - Report this comment
(ABC) Very nice. It would probably make more sense if I took the time to find this KYLIEZ's original parody, but interpolation of what it probably was about worked alright. 5'd.
Paul Robinson - September 12, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, nem...If you did want to search to check hers out I think she spelled "Chili" with two "ll"'s - "Chilli" in the "Artist" name field.

This is way better than the original (which always sounded to me like they thought up the word and tried to write a song around it) :-)
