    Make America great again

    Thanks r n r that was a great help I do often get bogged down on "facts" as I may see it and forget to make it a catchy song that people can’t but listen to. I think phil ochs used to do that well.

    Sydney in the summertime

    Glad you liked it I was hoping that I captured the Sydney beach atmosphere and I was purposely trying to put in more near rhymes

    Make America great again

    Paul about a song promoting this opposite of what it’s about in Australia a popular band called the Whitlams (fantastic lyrics) wrote a song called "blow up the pokies" about banning poker machines but the Sydney casino used play it on the casino because it was about pokies but obviously missing the meaning.

    Make America great again

    Thanks for all the feedback. Might put it on the back burner because how do you say sarcastically if you want to be "great" you have to use all the nasty thing because no powerful nation was powerful by being nice because when I hear "make America great again" it screams "make America a tyrant again" and we’re they ever and do they ever want to be.

    Make America great again

    Kuta I wasn’t trying to pull off sanctimonious but I understand what your saying and I 100% agree nowhere is squeaky clean especially Australia we didn’t technically have slave labour they were convicts (convicts weren’t bought and sold) but Almost as bad because many were on trumped up charges and the aboriginals history is disgusting. But I was thinking of "great" nations like romans, Egyptians, babylonians, Britain etc. I wasn’t worried because all my songs are mentally exercises because I can’t record them but I wanted it to be sarcastic but I was worried it would sound like a bag out of Americans instead of mr trump's statement but the great thing is I can dabble when it’s only an entry on this site 🙂

    Make America great again

    Even though this is based on president trump's statement I was really thinking about what was the background behind "great" nations being great is , having national spirit is important but to me it’s really war, cheap labour and entertainment for the masses. Warning this may offend some by the content and bad lyric formation Make America great again Let us all go back to a time When slavery wasn’t a crime When you could keep your costs down By having slaves working the ground Or back when a factory boss Could recover some of his loss By sacking workers in a day With no need for severance pay Make America Make America Make America great again We need someone like the commies To help boost our economy Start industrialisation Through fear of annihilation Or could sell some our weapons To some of the poorer nations And then send in our battleships When they’ve become dictatorships Make America Make America Make America great again Bring back the witch hunts of Salem Or maybe a colosseum Pit pesky little Mexicans Against evil Arabians Make America Make America Make America great again

    Just checking if quay is used by Americans because it’s pronounced "key"

    There's Nothing Sweeter Than A Dream

    "Please please please say you feel the heat CHORUSPlease, please, please say you feel the beatYour heart and my heart on fire" i personally thought this this section quite weak more like an 80's style filler I think you could do better but just my thoughts

    Temptation

    If you were going for single man getting hit on by a married woman then it’s clear. I wonder how many single guys would be questioning the motives of the person he’s having sex with but still there must be. Good lyrics in my humble opinion

    Sydney in the summertime

    It’s winter here at the moment but these lyrics came into my head any comments appreciated though I understand if you’ve never been to Sydney it might not mean much. Sydney in the summertime In summer there’s nothing better A ferry from circular quay Crossing the harbour so you can Eat hot fish and chips in manly Feeding yourself chips with one hand Feeding seagulls with the other Then go for a walk on the beach Yep that’s Sydney in the summer Sun's warm and the sand is fine Love Sydney in the summertime Spending a day at Bondi beach There’s more English than in Britain But no one cares about the crowds Cause water's warm when you get in And you try body surfing waves One you get, next takes you under Then go for a walk on the beach Yep that’s Sydney in the summer Sun is warm and the sand is fine Love Sydney in the summertime The sky's blue no clouds in the sky And hanging out at Coogee bay Having coffee on the outdoor chairs at one of the beachside cafes While women walk along the sand Bronzed bikini wearing stunners Then go for a walk on the beach Yep that’s Sydney in the summer Sun is warm and the sand is fine Love Sydney in the summertime
