Hidden talents

When I was a kid

I wanted to learn how

to play the piano,

but my parents couldn’t

afford to buy me a

a whole piano,

but they did get me the

piano stool.

So, mostly,

I practiced my posture.

***

But you know what?

I was good.

And some-times, as I 

would sit there on the piano stool,

I would dream of going

living in the 1920s.

***

If I could only go back in time,

then I could fulfill my destiny

of becoming a

tin-pan alley songwriter.”

And if I was lucky, and

I worked hard at my craft,

maybe I could get the

great Rudy Vallee

to sing my new hit song,

“Strawberry Fields Forever”

I love to see you smile,

love to hear you laugh,

I’ve got one of those in a photograph

And I love to hear you sleep,

love to watch you dream,

I got both of those in my memories

ii.

If you could feel what I feel

when I see you,

heart starts pounding

chills go flying through me …

Every-time I look at you

My blue blue girl

Hair of brown & eyes of brown

What a blue blue girl

***

What did I do (my baby)

to make you so blue? (my baby my blue)

My blue blue girl

***

Every-time i take you out

My blue blue girl

all you do is sit and pout

My blue blue girl

***

What did I do (my baby)

to make you so blue? (my baby my blue)

My blue blue girl

***

I lay awake at night

wondering why you’re so blue

and I

just don’t know what to do

Oh me

I love you
