The Lyrics

Lyrics on My Hand

When I sing
Folks are listening
For the words
I'm forgetting
I'm hoping I might
Remember tonight
I'll be writing lyrics on my hand

Gone away are the true words
So I'll make up some new words
The words to the songs
Are coming out wrong
I'll be writing lyrics on my hand

When I'm singing songs that I should know, man
And I get the verses jumbled 'round
Can't seem to remember how they go, man
Decided that I'd better write 'em down

From now on, I'll aspire,
When I sing with the choir,
To program my brain
The words to retain
I'll be writing lyrics on my hand

When I'm singing songs that I should know, man
And I've got the verses written down
I'll be glancing down to read my notes, man
I'm hoping that the ink won't smear around

Heaven knows I am willing
When it flows, it's so thrilling
I've got a new aid
If memory fades
I'll be writing lyrics on my hand
I'll be writing lyrics on my hand
I'll be writing lyrics on my hand

:-) Excellent! But I hope you only have short songs (or very large hands...)

I have to agree with Phil! This made me grin!

This made me think of a story Lulu told on a documentary on Dusty Springfield. Her (Dusty's)hand movements onstage came about from her having written the words to songs on her arms beforehand, so one arm, say, would go up to her face so she could see certain words. She was also short-sighted, so the arm movements would get more convoluted. Thanks for reminding me! Every time I hear, say, 'You Don't Have To Say You Love Me', now, I picture her arm going up on the chorus. More recently, Neal Morse (ex-Spock's Beard) does this a lot!

Ashlee Simpson? =)

Good, but what's the point?

Short-sighted? Well, Dusty had drinking and drug problems, so, yeah, she was short-sighted. (But she finally beat 'em both... before cancer took her away from us.) What you mean, and would've said if you'd grown up on this side of the ocean, is that she was NEAR-sighted. And mentioning Lulu in the same sentence as Dusty Springfield is like mentioning either Simpson sister in the same sentence as Alicia Keys... and the comparison to the Simpson sisters doesn't do Lulu any favors either!

Good one.

It's very funny, and the pacing is spot-on. My favorite part is "Gone away are the true words, / So I'll make up some new words."
