COVIDTRY Poem 06

Where have Nova Scotians gone, in lockdown times?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, cause they’re not home?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, many places, everyone!
When will we ever learn, to stay the blazes home?

Where have Nova Scotians gone, in lockdown times?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, cause they’re not home?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, gone to their work, everyone!
When will we ever learn, to stay the blazes home?

Where have Nova Scotians gone, in lockdown times?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, cause they’re not home?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, gone for groceries, everyone!
When will we ever learn, to stay the blazes home?

Where have Nova Scotians gone, in lockdown times?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, cause they’re not home?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, gone to the malls, everyone!
When will we ever learn, to stay the blazes home?

Where have Nova Scotians gone, in lockdown times?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, cause they’re not home?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, gone to the parks, everyone!
When will we ever learn, to stay the blazes home?

Where have Nova Scotians gone, in lockdown times?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, cause they’re not home?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, gone COVID testing, everyone!
When will we ever learn, to stay the blazes home?

Where have Nova Scotians gone, in lockdown times?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, cause they are home?
Where have Nova Scotians gone, to quarantine, everyone!
That’s when we finally learned, to stay the blazes home!

To All the Girls I’ve Loved Before (Parody Lyrics)

My parody lyrics contain strong doses of my edgy sense of humour. If you don’t like that sort of thing, please move on or just enjoy the original version of the song parodied below. 🙂

I rarely write stuff like this so aside from some old Christmas carol parodies I have yet to post, you won’t see much content like this in the future. But if you do like stuff like this, well, that’s all you’ll be getting. 🙂

Thank you.

Got Something to Say [version 5.0]

Ask me about the weather,
Ask me what I think’s taboo,
Ask me if I would wear leather,
Or who I pray to?

Ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me what I think of friendship,
Ask me how I feel about love,
Ask me my two cents on money,
And on happiness.

Ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me about jogging, clear cut logging,
Autobahns and black swans,
Michael Jordan, Bob Dylan,
Islam, Viet Nam,
H-bombs and my Mom.

Yeah ask me any question, any day,
Ask me cause you know I’ve always,
Got something to say!

Ask me what I think of people,
Who’s always got something to say,
But who never ask other people,
For what they’ve got to say.

Cause having an opinion, without discussion,
Thinking one is right, day and night,
Is a plan for, fights and war,
Hot heads, bloodshed,
Lost heads and tears shed.

If we discuss our problems, I know we,
Can mutually find the answers that would be,
Good for you and me!

So tell me where you stand on abortion,
Would you help me if I wished to die?
Would you allow human cloning?
Or take a killer’s life?

Tell me your opinions, so that we,
Can mutually find the answers that would be,
Good for you and me.

Let’s find ways to solve global warming,
Let’s find ways to get world peace,
Let’s find ways to end world hunger,
And inequality.

Let’s discuss things over, so that we,
Can mutually find the answers that would be,
Good for you and me…
And the world we lease…
And all humanity.

My Water is Wide (Reworkings of Traditional Lyrics)

The water is wide,
I can’t cross over,
Nor have I wings,
Over which to fly.
Build me a boat,
That carries two,
We both shall row,
My love and I.

Some say that love,
Is like a tree,
When young it’s strong,
To lean up on.
But over time,
It will bend then it will break,
And rot away,
Till it is gone.

Some say that love,
Is like a rose,
The sweetest flower,
When it is new.
But it goes dry,
As it gets old,
And turns to dust,
Like most things do.

But not my love,
My love is forever,
Just like the sea,
So deep and wide.
Within our boat,
That carries two,
We both shall row,
My love and I,
As we each love,
Till end of time.
