LANDMARKS AND MILESTONES Song lyric 121

Following tow-paths beside canals,
Meandering through kissing gates and stiles,
Until we reached a resting place after
Our excursion took us rambling for miles and miles.

Breathtaking views, the scenic route,
Had we envisaged softer tones
And textures that adorn the pastoral scene,
Pointing out memorable land marks and milestones

Travelling on life’s great pilgrimage,
Coherently describing all the sights,
Then, reaching the final resting place,
One anticipates each mortal soul’s plights.

First we realise that by every wayside,
Burial grounds, must mind ancient bones.
The coast road, dashed by wind and tide,
Is a picture of memorable land marks and milestones.

LAS FRAGANCIAS DE FLORES Song Lyric 141

Mi amigos dicen que las fragancias de las rosas
Son dulces, mas que todas las otras cosas.
Las flores representas todo el amor en el mundo,
Cuando el amor puede ser muy profundo

La filosofia considera la natureza.
Las narices y los ojos de cada cabeza
Deleitan las colores y las fragancias cada dia
De las flores al lado de cada camino y cada via.

Emblemas y pinturas de flores no emiten durante la primavera
Fragancias pero todas las flores del campo y de la ribera
Tengo en las manos todo el amor en el mundo,
Cuando el amor puede ser muy profundo

LEAPS AND BOUNDS, AS GRACEFUL AS A GAZELLE. Song lyric 093

If we were as fleet of foot as antelopes
And all were to come true from our horoscopes.
You’d follow me with leaps and bounds,
As graceful as a gazelle over dips and mounds.

Since we would be adaptable and agile
Although some days you’d be feeling fragile,
We’d observe a life of leaps and bounds,
As graceful as a gazelle over dips and mounds.

Leaps and bounds, as graceful as a gazelle.
Leaps and bounds, as graceful as a gazelle.

If we were as sure of mirth as children’s laughter,
Then life would continue happily ever after.
You’d follow me with leaps and bounds
As graceful as a gazelle over dips and mounds

Because we’re so vulnerable and docile
It’s imperative to keep a low profile.
We’d observe a life of leaps and bounds,
As graceful as a gazelle over dips and mounds.

LESSONS IN LIFE Song lyric 112

Modesty prevails when origins have been humble.
Impedance from looming obstacles makes us stumble.
Tact and diplomacy elude our social grace.
Skills in communication require no embrace

We learn from lessons in life.

Quality can fail when standards become abysmal
Improvement comes from eliminating all that’s dismal,
Like an overcast sky, bursting into sunshine,
Communities can be prevented from decline.

We learn from lessons in life.

LET’S MAKE AMENDS Song lyric 045

Always standing by the gate,
She stopped me passing by so late.
When you came along it made her wince.
She’s been acting strangely ever since

There’s nothing in it, let’s make amends.
There’s nothing serious. We’re just good friends.

Always peering through the panes,
The neighbours notice who she detains
Then you spoke to her and made them guess
Whether you were sincere or a bad temptress.

LITTLE WOMAN Song lyric 041

Why am I feeling so glad?
I think I can tell you.
The only woman that I ever had
Is the only one that I ever knew.

Little woman has got feelings for me.
I know from what my friends say.
Little woman has got feelings so real
And that’s how I want it to stay

If you felt like I do now,
You could understand me
But older people don’t see how
I can feel so happy.

I don’t know how you can call yourself a man.
You need a lovin’ little lady like mine.
Treat her right and give her all the love you can
And she will respond to you all the time.

That’s why I’m feeling so glad.
That’s why I have told you.
The only woman that I ever had
Is the only woman that I ever knew?

LONG -TERM MEMORY RECALL Song lyric 024

Remembering when you followed every event.
I recount times when all our money was spent.
If you pressed the wrong button, I’d feel small,
Demonstrating my long- term memory recall

Precarious periods when you played around,
Dropping every knight for others that you found.
As you rang the right bells, I’d walk tall
Activating my long-term memory recall.

LOST IN THE MAZE Song lyric 060

Strange place with confusing views,
No trace of unpleasant news,
So I’m coming back here again,
Lost in the maze of my brain.

In patterns of all shapes and sizes,
Some naked and some in disguises,
People and places ill-defined
Are lost in the maze of my mind.

Old face with commanding eyes,
Same grace but showing surprise,
So I’m staying young at heart,
Lost in the maze from the start.

It’s all becoming a blur…………

LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR Song lyric 096

Let’s dispense with the preliminaries
And proceed with the normal sequence of events,
Just usual routine formalities,
Small talk at the expense of eloquence.

We’ll contemplate the highest common factor
From nostalgia of an exterminator
And calibrations on an accurate protractor,
There’s the lowest common denominator.

Let’s think of a number, divide it by two,
Next multiply it by zero and add the first
Then subtract it and leave me with you.
Calculate the best in life, never the worst.

LUCKY HORSE-SHOE Song lyric 166

On your door hangs a lucky horse-shoe
But a nail has rusted through.
Your lucky horse-shoe has slipped right round.
Your lucky horse-shoe has turned upside down.

Your holster’s empty. Your pistol’s lost
Confiscated to your cost.
Sheriff took your rifle and your renown.
Your lucky horse-shoe has turned upside down.

Now that you’ve run right out of luck,
Your entire future has come unstuck.
There’s no escape, your pony’s lame.
There’s only you yourself to blame

I can revel in your misfortune
Adding, misery to bad luck soon.
Long may you wriggle and squirm.
My lucky horse-shoe has been set firm.
