Hi here's my first post here, I hope I got this right?

 

Entries in this blog

Mr Distraction

I Met

I hear this for some strange reason sung by George Michael? Hell if i know why but a powerful voice with emotion!

 

I Met!

 

V

I met a girl

She changed my world

I can't describe her beauty

Even if you said you'd shoot me

The most beautiful I have seen

She was my Queen 

I met a girl

 

V

I met a woman

Oh boy! Oh boy! What a woman

I gave her all my heart 

The first I love you was the start

Now that she has gone

I don't know where I'm from

I met a woman

 

B

I'm just a man

I did what I could

But the women that I love

Is no longer in love

With me

 

V

I have lost the power

I've lost the most delicate flower

I was such fool

I broke every lovers rule

Now I pay the price

I can tell you it's not nice

I lost the pow.........er

 

Outro

Now there nothing left............

 

Mr Distraction

Hi here's another one not sure what you will make of it? 

Extra verse at the bottom!

 

Am I a ghost

 

She used say good morning

She used to say good night

Now shes says nothing to me at all

I want to say good morning

I want to say good night

I dont think that she'll hear me

Am I a ghost

 

Tell me if I'm haunting you 

And I will fade away

If you want me to be a memory 

Please tell me

I will fade away

Like a ghost in the night

I'll fade away

Like a ghost in the night 

I'll fade away

 

She used to say she loved me

She used to give me a kiss

Now she gives nothing to me at all

I want to say I love her

I want to give her a kiss

I dont think that she'll feel it

Am I a ghost

 

Tell me if I'm haunting you 

And I will fade away

If you want me to be a memory 

Please tell me

I will fade away

Like a ghost in the night

I'll fade away

Like a ghost in the night 

I'll fade away

 

I'm here right now

In the flesh

Feelings change thats a fact

But it hurts inside

 

Tell me if I'm haunting you 

And i will fade away

If you want me to be a memory 

Please tell me

I will fade away

Like a ghost in the night

I'll fade away

Like a ghost in the night 

I'll fade away

 

Fade away 

Fade away

 

Extra verse!

She used to hug n squeeze me

She used to hold me tight

Now she does'nt touch me at all

I want to hug n squeeze her

I want to hold her tight

I don't think it matters anymore

I am a ghost

Mr Distraction

Hi here's another one, been a while and this is quite recent.

Hope ya like it and the message comes across clearly 🙂

 

Un-Breakable

 

There is something about you girl

That I just cannot define

I feel your love and aura

Across this distance and time

My love for you will not waiver

It will not twist flex or bend

My love for you is un-breakable

I will love it you until my end

 

For such a small creature

You are a force unto this world

Radiating love and beauty

You are truely an amazing girl

If only I had met you earlier

We could have made a life

Who knows dare I even say it

You may have become my wife

 

I can imagine holding your hand

As we stared out in to the night

Seeing the stars shine in your eyes

So beautiful blue and bright

I can only imagine these things

But I would be willing and be able

So please remember this girl

My love for you is.....un-breakable

 

Mr Distraction

I wrote this one Christmas for some reason? not sure why now but just a silly me one haha

 

Grumpy Neighbor

 

I have such a grumpy neighbour

He’s such a whining git

He never stops his moaning

The whingeing whining shit

 

His bitching has no time frame

The morning or afternoon

They should do us all a favour

And send him to the moon

 

One day he came a knocking

Quite loudly on my door

To my surprise when I opened it

He was flat out on the floor

 

He had an empty bottle

Clasped tightly in his hand

It was such a fine sunny day

I left him to get tanned

 

Next day he was very angry

And I know I shouldn’t laugh

But his head was big and puffy

N as red as a baboons arse

 

He said that he would get me

And that I shouldn’t mock

For on his head I had drawn

In 30+ a big fat hairy c*ck

 

Ha ha ha ha I nearly pissed myself

Go on sod off you old git!

 

Well I think he learned his lesson

Coz so far he’s not been back

Told him if there's a next time

I’ll draw a big fat hairy crack

 

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Ho ho ho ho ho

Mr Distraction

HI another one for today.

 

 

The Bridge is in 2 parts sort of and is Sort of narrated?

 

Life Without Her

V

I'm getting used to it

That doesn't mean I like it

My days are empty now

Seems there’s nothing I can do

 

 V

We used to talk a lot

Until the day we went silent

I want to talk with her

Will I have the words to say

 

C

Life without her is not easy

With so many hours in a day

Life without her is not easy

I loved the games we played

She would tease me n please me

Are those days gone?

 

 2 part bridge

 

I wish I could find the words

That would put us right

I know they exist 

That’s the way we are

 

It's a risk, but I'm going to say it

I love her no matter what

Friends forever I know it

That’s all I've got

Will it be enough?

 

C

Life without her is not easy

With so many hours in a day

Life without her is not easy

I loved the games we played

She would tease me n please me

Are those days gone?

 

V/Outro 

I'm getting used to it

That doesn't mean I like it

My days are empty now

I don't want to move on

Are those days gone?

Mr Distraction

Hi Hope ya Like

 

My Childs Smile

 

V

When I look into her eyes

All I see is innocence

An enquiring mind

Behind a face full of questions

 

V

When I listen to her laugh

All I hear is happiness

A precious moment

That never grows old for me

 

Never grows old for me

 

C

She is the rushing wind through my hair

She is the morning sun that warms my face

She brings to me a sense of purpose

My child’s smile that’s all it takes

 

V

When I see her smiling

All I see is gentleness

Unconditional love

That takes my breath away

 

V

When I see her sleeping

All I see is peacefulness

A trusting bond

Knowing she’s safe from harm

 

She’s safe from harm

 

C

She is the rushing wind through my hair

She is the morning sun that warms my face

She brings to me a sense of purpose

My child’s smile that’s all it takes

 

B

She knows that I am here for her

She knows that she’s my precious one

She knows that there's no obstacle

That I could not – would not - overcome

 

Outro (slight pause between these lines)

 

She’s is the rushing wind

Through my hair

She’s is the morning sun

That warms my face

 

She takes my breath away

 

My child’s smile, is all it takes

 

Mr Distraction

One of my odd ones 

 

Hot Hot Hot 

 

intro

I should be a crime against humanity

Because I'm the most gorgeous man you will ever see             

You may think I'm vain!

That’s because you are all so plain

I drive the girls insane

 

PC

Because I'm so                       

 

C

Hot, hot, hot

Girls wont stop, stop, stop

Until they’ve got, got, got

Their hands on me

They undress me with their eyes, eyes, eyes

They want to touch my thighs, thighs, thighs

It's no surprise, prise, prise

I'm so hot you see

 

V

See me on the beaches

Ripped and tanned

See my little cheekies

Leave impressions in the sand

All the girls they love me

There's nothing I can do

I'm not going to deny it

Because I know it's true

 

PC

That I'm so                              

 

C

Hot, hot, hot

Girls wont stop, stop, stop

Until they’ve got, got, got

Their hands on me

They undress me with their eyes, eyes, eyes

They want to touch my thighs, thighs, thighs

It's no surprise, prise, prise

I'm so hot you see

 

V

See me on the dance floor

Strutting my stuff

See the girls want more

They just can't get enough

I am just perfection

Wrapped up in a skin

I'm not going to deny it

That would be a sin

 

PC

Because I'm so                       

 

C

Hot, hot, hot

Girls wont stop, stop, stop

Until they’ve got, got, got

Their hands on me

They undress me with their eyes, eyes, eyes

They want to touch my thighs, thighs, thighs

It's no surprise, prise, prise

I'm so hot you see

Mr Distraction

Primal Man 

 

V

The way she sat she looked so fine

She crossed her legs as she crossed my mind

I caught a glimpse of her underwear

I couldn’t help, couldn’t help but stare

 

C

I'm a primal man

I got primal needs

To love a woman

Sow my seeds

There's nothing wrong

With the way I am

I got primal needs

I'm a primal man

 

V

She saw me looking and smiled at me

Was I that obvious was it that plain to see

She said don’t be shy come sit over here

We sat talking over an ice-cold beer

 

V

She asked me if I liked what I saw

Said that if I wanted she would show me more

What could I do? I couldn’t say no

The feeling inside was starting to grow

 

C

I'm a primal man

I got primal needs

To love a woman

Sow my seeds

There's nothing wrong

With the way I am

I got primal needs

I'm a primal man

 

B

We spent the night doing what felt right

I barely left the confines of hers walls

Yeah we did it! Yeah we did it all!

 

C

I'm a primal man

I got primal needs

To love a woman

Plant my seeds

There's nothing wrong

With the way I am

I got primal needs

I'm a primal man

Mr Distraction

4 Yrs old this one.

 

A Life Like This 

 

Old man lonely

On the street

Ragged clothes

Blistered feet

No place to go

To call his own

10 years or more

The streets he’s roamed

 

Rich man passes

Without a care

Designer clothes

Designer hair

Old man glances

Up at him

He wonders what

What was his sin?

To deserve a life like this

 

He doesn’t beg

As others do

Asks for nothing

From me or you

He carries on

The best he can

He still has pride

Still a worthy man

 

Days and nights

Getting harder

Once a husband

Once a father

The life he had

Long since gone

He strains his mind

What did he do wrong

To deserve a life like this

 

Faded memories

Of yester years

Fills his eyes

With salty tears

All alone

In fading light

As sun gives way

To cold winters night

 

Darkened ally

He lay’s down

Cardboard bed

On the ground

Freezing night

He endures

He wonders if

There is a cure

For a life.. a life like this

 

Please help me if you can

I don’t want to be this lonely man

Please help me if you can

I don’t want to be this lonely man

Anymore

Mr Distraction

One more for tonight

 

Echoes

 

V

A hall of mirrors that’s my life

Past reflections at every turn

Visions of you from long ago

Visions of love that still burn

 

V

Life itself has no conscience

Nothing ever stays the same

Shadows run across my wall

Shadows calling out your name

 

C

Echoes ….. Only echoes

Echoes from my past

Reflections ….. Just Reflections

Reflections off broken glass

 

Like the pieces of my mind

 

B

I see you young

As I grow old

In the mirrors

Of my mind

Life gives

Life takes away

Only memories

Left behind

 

C

Echoes ….. Only echoes

Echoes from my past

Reflections ….. Just Reflections

Reflections off broken glass

 

Like the pieces of my mind

 

Outro to fade

Echoes ….. Only echoes

 

Reflections ….. Just Reflections

 

Like the pieces of my mind

Mr Distraction

Another one! 

This is as it is! 

I Would Give It All Up For You

 

V

So many times I thought I saw you                            

As I’ve walked along the shore

So many times I called your name                                                                  

There's no reply anymore           

                                   

V

So many times I thought I heard

Your voice whisper in my ear 

So many times I felt your touch

Brush away a lonely tear

 

I long for the times we walked the beach

Holding hands, skipping stones

 

All that I am

Everything I could be

 

C

I would give it all up for you

To love you for one more day

I would give it all up for you

To hold you in my arms again

I would give it all up for you

Because I love you

 

V

So many times I thought I sensed you

As I laid flowers upon your stone

So many times I imagine I kiss you

Good night but I am alone

 

All that I am

Everything I could be

C

I would give it all up for you

To love you for one more day

I would give it all up for you

To hold you in my arms again

I would give it all up for you

Because I love you

 

B

Between the sweetest memories

There is always the sadness that I feel

But I carry on I carry on

 

C

I would give it all up for you

To love you for one more day

I would give it all up for you

To hold you in my arms again

I would give it all up for you

Because I love you

 

Outro

I would give it all up for you

Everything I am

All I could be

I would give it all up for you

Because I love you

Mr Distraction

Quite a simple one I think but says a lot for the way your birth place and parents and the opportunities you are given make you who you are! 

 

 

The Tale Of Lucy 

 

 

Across the river and down a track

Lucy lived in a run down shack

Daddy liked to drink

Mother didn’t care

 

Born to them by a twist of fate

She dreamed of the day she’ll escape

Run away

She’ll never leave

 

(Lu-u-cy) 3 times

 

All she wanted was a chance in life

Find some man become his wife

Raise some kids

The best she can

 

She prayed to the lord everyday

For her knight to carry her away

Sweep her up

Set her free

 

(Lu-u-cy) 3 times

 

I know that these are only dreams

She told her reflection in the stream

But maybe

They’ll come true

 

The years rolled by her daddy died

Neither she nor her mother cried

Wasn’t such a loss

Not for them

 

(Lu-u-cy) 3 times

 

Next thing she knew she was 58              

Her mothers gone now it's too late           

Her knight never showed

Now she’s alone

 

She sits in a chair by the fire

Waiting for her life to expire

Drinks like daddy

Cares like mom

 

(Lu-u-cy) 3 times

 

Across the river and down a track

Lives an old lady in a run down shack

Her name is Lucy

She’ll never leave

 

(Lu-u-cy Lu-u-cy) to fade

Mr Distraction

Well another one I like!

This is something I wrote a few years ago thinking of my own mortality! Yikes you say!

It is not meant to be morbid more of a uplifting feel in my mind :)

I would love this put to Bagpipes and a single drum like a military Tattoo if that makes sense? 

I would also like it played and sung at my Funeral hahaha but not just yet! 

 

The last verse is sung higher and the last words in most lines if not all are extended.

I could sing it but yuk might not hahha.

 

I'm On My Way 

 

Chorus

 

I’m on my way

To a place

I can be

I’m on my way

To a place

I’ll be free

 

Verse

 

I’m not afraid

To say good bye

I’m not afraid

I’ll tell you why

For we all

One day will fall

Then we fly

 

Chorus

 

Verse

 

Don’t be sad

When I’m gone

Wear a smile

And be strong

For one day

We will stand

Hand in hand

 

Chorus

 

So rejoice

In your life

Don’t give up

Without a fight

Do the things

You want to do

Life is short

For me and you

 

Chorus

 

Fade out with “I’m on my way” and “I’ll say goodbye”.

Mr Distraction

Another one! I tried to get a lot of images in there! 

 

Let Me Paint You A Journey

 

C

Let me paint you a journey 

Close your eyes and I'll begin

Your imagination is my canvas

My brushes the words I sing

Lets begin

 

V

You and I on the deep blue sea

Floating in an endless dream

The clouds wave as they go by

All you need to do is believe

 

V

In the distance a desert Island

We drift to its golden beach

Hand in hand we walk the shore

All you need to do is believe

 

Do you believe

 

C

Then let me paint you a journey

Close your eyes and I'll begin

Your imagination is my canvas

My brushes the words I sing

Lets begin

 

V

Up we go in our space ship

Leaving earth so far behind

Watch her fade into infinity

All you need to do is believe

 

V

Landing on some distant planet

Greeted by long lost friends

Remember this is a fantasy

All you need to do is believe

 

Do you believe

 

Outro

All you need to do is close your eyes

All you need to do is believe

Do you believe

Do you believe 

Do you beileve

 

Mr Distraction

Here's something I wrote 5 yrs ago almost! Yikes am I that old already! Lol! 5! 

It was for a challenge! I choose the below. Sorry about the font size! 

 

 

Heart Shaped. Box - Nirvana

Topic

Everyone is so busy all the time, they never stop

 

You Dont Have Time For me

 

You have time for all the rest you dont have time for me

Our lives are slipping through our fingers you're to blind to see

The silence thats between us makes every-thing so clear

I hear the trees that fall though I am nowhere near

 

Dont! 

Go!

We need to sort this out

Ba..be you are driving us apart

Slow! 

Down!

You're in overdrive

Take a step back to reset your life

Last! 

Chance!

Our time is almost up

Only you can sa...ve us now

 

Save us now

 

Tomorrows a new horizon we need to start again

Knock these monkeys off our back there driving me insane

The tiny pieces of our lives mean nothing if we're on our own

Youre completely surrounded by them yet you stand alone

 

Dont! 

Go!

We need to sort this out

Ba..be you are driving us apart

Slow! 

Down!

You're in overdrive

Take a step back to reset your life

Last! 

Chance!

Our time is almost up

Only you can sa...ve us now

 

Save us now

 

You have time for all the rest, you dont have time for me

Our lives are slipping through our fingers, you're to blind to see

The silence thats between us makes everything so clear

I hear the trees that fall though I am nowhere near

 

Dont!

Go!

We need to sort this out

Ba..be you are driving us apart

Slow! 

Down!

You're in overdrive

Take a step back to reset your life

Last! 

Chance!

Our time is almost up

Only you can sa...ve us now

 

Save us now

Save us now

Save us now

Mr Distraction

Hi

This is a lyric I wrote after I started learning guitar!

One of my very first and it is all over the place may be but again it is what it is! never will change it!

It's for my late daughter and believe me only a couple of people on this planet have ever seen it! Why I'm sharing now I am not sure?

May be as time runs out you need to share more? I don't know?

Only one person that I remember has ever heard me sing it and that was a dear friend, said they were honoured I shared it!

That meant a lot.

I wish I could play for you and sing it for you!

The Smallest Things 

 

 

Its funny how the smallest thing’s

                                                                                     

Can pull upon the smallest string’s that make you…. Cry                           

 

When someone you love is called above

                                                                  

The only questions that you have are… Why

                                                                                      

Why you, why not me, why doe’s it have to be this way

                                                                                                           

I only want to understand the reasons I can’t hold your hand…. Today

 

Chorus

Because I lov---e you - and want you back again

Nee---d you - to hold my hand again

Please hold my hand again

 

 

They say that time will ease the pain

                                                                       

I’m sorry but I don’t feel the same as…. They do

 

The feelings I have run so deep

                                                                

The mountain I climb is oh so steep

 

And every day takes its toll

 

And I don’t know which way to go… without you

 

Chorus

Because I lov---e you - and want you back again

Nee---d you - to hold my hand again

Please hold my hand again

 

 

Well life is harsh life is cruel,

                                                                   

Some time it’s hard to just get through -- The night

 

My time will come to be with you

                                                                           

And when it doe’s you’ll see me through

 

This world for me has lost its charms

                                                           

And I will cross with open arms…to you 

 

Chorus

Because I lov---e you - and want you back again

Nee---d you - to hold my hand again

Please hold my hand again

Mr Distraction

Fun one only!

Just another one for the pot!

Strange thing is I'm a biker at heart?

She’s Look’s So Sweet

 

V

She’s got to go

I've had enough

She’s not worth my time

Just when I need her

She’s not there for me

 

PC

I'm not sure how much more I can take

Of her misbehaving

She’s got me craving

 

C

She looks so sweet

Dressed in red

I want to take her to bed

Those love me eyes

Shining so bright

I want to be in her tonight

 

V

She’s a beauty

But too much trouble

She’s always letting me down

Sometimes I curse

The day we ever met

 

PC

I'm not sure how much more I can take

Of her misbehaving

She’s got me caving

 

C

She looks so sweet

Dressed in red

I want to take her to bed

Those love me eyes

Shining so bright

I want to be in her tonight

 

B

Dam car, I love her

Even though I cuss

I’ll never let her go

 

PC

I'm not sure how much more I can take

Of her misbehaving

She’s got me slaving

 

C

She looks so sweet

Dressed in red

I want to take her to bed

Those love me eyes

Shining so bright

I want to be in her tonight

 

In her tonight!

Mr Distraction

You may not get this but it's a metaphor for losing a girl you love! Now dead to her!

I use death on a bike as I'm a biker as the theme! Love or hate it! It is what it is!

Kiss Kiss was a way of making up, a saying used at one time but can never be used again! 

Theres no making up now, it's quite deep if you understand it! 

 

Kiss Kiss

 

V

Look at your face as I'm lying here

I never meant to leave you this way

But things happen and things change

One moment in time and I'm not here

 

C

Oooohhh ba....by please forgive me

I never should have left you like this

Ooohhh baby please forgive me

Please forgive me and kiss kiss

 

V

Riding to fast yeah it was my way

Never thought it would end like this

But things happen and things change

The only thing about this is the rhyme scheme is the same! yuk! and thats from me!

 

The Best Cure For Love Is Prevention 

 

V

You’ll never see a ring upon my finger

Married life is definitely not for me

Not sure I could handle all the pressure

Way to much responsibility

 

V

Seen to many broken hearts to let it happen

No way I’ll fall in love and settle down

I’d be waiting for the day she’d leave me

Better off I move from town to town

 

So I say

 

C

The best cure for love is prevention

Don’t get that involved is what I say

Keep my distance that’s my intention

Have some fun-say goodbye-be on my way

 

V

I don’t lead them on with empty promises

I let them know right from the start

No way I’ll be walking down the isle

Have me but you can’t have my heart

 

So I say

 

C

The best cure for love is prevention

Don’t get that involved is what I say

Keep my distance that’s my intention

Have some fun-say goodbye-be on my way

 

B

My farther left when I was young

He broke my mothers heart

I don’t think I could take that pain

So I’ll never let it start

 

So I say

 

C

The best cure for love is prevention

Don’t get that involved is what I say

Keep my distance that’s my intention

Have some fun-say goodbye-be on my way

 

Yeah I say

 

Repeat chorus 

Mr Distraction

Ageing Cowboy

 

V

I'm just an ageing cowboy weathered hat and weathered heart

Looking for that special lady who’ll to play that special part

I've been on my own for so long I've forgotten what it's like

To have a special lady, hold me through the night

 

C

Wont someone love this ageing cowboy

For more than just a while

It's been a long and lonely road

Though I've ridden it in style

 

I've had my share of one-night stands

With ladies of the night

Searching for that special woman

To keep my fire alight

 

V

For so many years I've traveled across the dusty plains

Running away from my mistakes everyday is just the same

The ghosts I've left behind me haunt me through the night

I'm looking for that someone to lead me to the light

 

C

Wont someone love this ageing cowboy

For more than just a while

It's been a long and lonely road

Though I've ridden it in style

 

I've had my share of one-night stands

With ladies of the night

Searching for that special woman

To keep my fire alight

 

B

To many faces

To many places

To many names

That I've forgot

Couple of hours

A motel room

Couple of hours

Is all I’ve got

 

C

Wont someone love this ageing cowboy

Been lonesome way to long

I'm looking for that special woman

Sing her my love song

 

I've had my share of one-night stands

With ladies of the night

I'm looking for that special woman

To keep my fire alight

 

C

Wont someone love this ageing cowboy

Been lonesome way to long

I'm looking for that special woman

Sing her my love song

 

I've had my share of one-night stands

With ladies of the night

I'm looking for that special woman

To keep my fire alight

 

Fade out

 

To many faces

To many places

To many faces

To many places

To many faces

That I’ve forgot

Mr Distraction

Another one, guy has had a serious accident and is in hospital!

You Alone © Bailey 2018

 

Intro

I never saw what hit me

But I could hear the sirens wail 

I heard them say-there's nothing more they can do 

Now only time will tell

 

V

 

Holding my hand

I felt your love

I prayed you could feel mine too

Your gentle kiss 

Gave me hope 

Though I couldn’t show you

 

Pc

I sensed you here everyday and night 

You gave me the strength to fight

 

C

 

It was you- you alone that saved me

It was you- you alone that gave me 

The will to survive

You kept me alive

I never want to leave - you alone

 

V

When your tears

Touched my cheek

I cried deep down inside with you

Your soothing voice

Gave me peace

Though I had no way to tell you

 

Pc

I sensed you here everyday (and) everynight

You gave me the strength to fight

 

C

 

It was you- you alone that saved me

It was you- you alone that gave me

The will to survive

You kept me alive

I never want to leave - you alone

 

B 

Our lives changed in the blink of an eye

The last thing I saw was a tumbling crimson sky

Now I see you

 

Pc 

I sensed you here everyday and night

You gave me the strength to fight

 

 C

It was you- you alone that saved me 

It was you- you alone that gave me 

The will to survive

You kept me alive 

I never want to leave - you alone...repeat to fade?

Mr Distraction

Well another one too add, no chorus!

Jimmy

 

V

I remember I’d sit and play on this porch

My friend jimmy would shine his torch

From his bedroom window

Waiting for me to reply

 

V

Two flashes from him meant is it all clear

Three back from me meant get over here

He would shimmy down the pipe

We would play some games

 

V

As the years rolled on and we got older

A man in Europe got bolder and bolder

We got drafted to go fight a war

We didn’t have a choice

 

V

We trained together at an army camp

They gave us guns and a rousing chant

Funny how the real thing never

Turned out to be the same

 

Bridge 1

Stabbing sacks and firing blanks

Hand grenades and rumbling tanks

They called us the bloody Yanks

But baby I was proud

 

V

Sent to France to fight for a foreign land

I knew as soon as my feet hit the sand

This was going to be the hardest

Thing I have ever done

 

V

Jimmy was sent to a different beach

He was out of touch and out of reach

I hoped he would survive

This terrible war

 

Bridge 2

The captain said we can do this men

As we tried n tried n tried again

Each time we made a stand

More blood in the sand

 

V

It's been 50 years since that bloody fight

I still see the look on his face some nights

Hear the last words he said to me

Before he went away

V

Well my friend I’ll see you back on the porch

With an ice cold beer and I’ll bring my torch

I never saw my friend again

I can't help but cry

Mr Distraction

My Perfect Woman ©Bailey 2018

 

V

I've traveled all around this world

If there’s a lesson that I've learned

Women make no sense to me

I'm always getting burned

I try to treat them decent like

I'm courteous, polite and kind

Seems fate has got it in for me

Oh will I ever find?

 

C

My perfect woman

I know she’s out there

I'm just running out of places to try

My perfect woman

I only want to share

My heart with you until the day I die

 

V

Oh Susie Woo she was a favorite

I met her in old Shanghai

She told me that she loved me

As she looked me in the eye

The last time I saw Susie

She was leaving me behind

Driving off with another man

Oh will I ever find

 

Chorus

 

V

Spent 3 weeks in London town

I didn’t want that time to end

Met a woman called Lady Jane

She drove a Mercedes Benz

She showed me all the city sites

Every night we wined and dined

But like the rest she flew the nest

Oh will I ever find?

 

Chorus

V

I met a beauty in Bangkok

And that’s all we ever did

She took me to another level

She really flipped my sexual lid

Every night she wore me out

I had to say goodbye this time

I couldn’t keep up the pace

Oh will I ever find

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

I’ll keep searching these foreign lands

Sail the seas and walk the sands

Ride the bus from coast to coast

Maybe my perfect woman

Is just a perfect ghost?

 

Chorus
