“In a Photograph”

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


If you could

feel what I feel

when I see you,

heart starts pounding

chills go flying

through me …

In a blue mood

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

“Since The Light Went Out”

The light went out

Just burned itself out.

The world is not as bright

since the light went out


It flickered for while,

still it made her smile

Then our world went dark

when the light went out


I had a thought

I never thought before

I know I’ll never be



Photographs and memories

trinkets left behind …


Life as free as a

summer breeze

we had so many good times.

“Talking ‘Bout Spam”

Come in little cans

had a lot of fans

in the army infantry


Some people hate

but a lot of kids ate it

growing up near Waikiki


Mama said,

“It’s good for you”

She would serve it with a grin

And it’s not surprising

after eating it all our life,

to be in the shape were in


Comes in a can

kind of tastes like ham

you don’t want to see

it made


We ate a lot of it

and started to love it

fried up with

rice and egg


It was quite a feat squeezing

Hawaiian steak

into that little tin

since i left home

sure miss mom

but i don’t miss the indigestion


Talking about Spam …


Slice, dice it, fry it up

and spice it

It made me what I am


Spam, Spam, Spam


When I go back

to look up my old friends

in Honolulu

We pops some beers

and eat a lot of

Spamalulu stew
