SONG POEM #7

Merry Christmas! Here's a special Christmas Song Poem for all of you! It comes courtesy of Tom Lewis and was written by his five year old twins Ivy and Noah! I thought it would be a great chance to use my little brother Wilson and sisters Carmen and Megan as backup singers on this one. Thanks for your help guys!

"Santa on a Motorcycle" Poem by Ivy and Noah

Santa, its to you

Santa on a motorcycle
Now(4x)

Driving thru the north pole
Now(4x)

Bringing presents
Now(4x)

The elves are making toys
Now(4x)

The chimneys are waiting
Now(4x)

All the children are dreaming
Now(4x)

Christmas lights
Now(4x)

Everyone says hooray!
Now(4x)

Christmas trees
Now(4x)

The children play with their toys
Now(4x)

Everyone says Santa
Now(4x)

Christmas CDs
Now(4x)

Thank you, Santa. It's the ending tale

And thank you Kids for the great poem! Hope Santa's good to you!

SONG POEM #6

And now a poem from J. Richardson, who is an avid Song-poem author and has even had songs done by Magic Key And J. Gale Kilgore. Impressive! And now I have the privilege to interpret this gem....

"LINOLEUM, HOORAY!" Poem By J. Richardson


Linoleum has been my life
It's done a lot for me
It paid for Brenda's braces
and Tom's psychotherapy.

It's why that pool's out in the yard
and a boat's out on the bay
It's why I'd like to sing my thanks
Linoleum, hooray!

CHORUS-

Hooray for linoleum, an American tradition
It's been around so gosh-darn long
An unlimited edition
Linoleum is always there
to be a family friend
The wonders of linoleum
are wonders without end.

Imagine no linoleum
Not easy but just try
It saved the day for countless folks
And every girl and guy
who makes their choice linoleum
will be glad they chose so well
when all their guests say
"Golly, your linoleum looks swell!"

SONG POEM #5

Please forgive me Lord, for I know not what I do! This one is kinda bad, my performance I mean. I did one take love it or leave it. I am really trying to stay true to some of the Song Poem rules of thumb: Don't ever do more than one take, and don't spend too long on any one song! But I don't have hundreds of poems rolling in either. Oh well, the beauty of these tunes is their total rawness, and total lack of commercial appeal! The words here are great though, thanks to Trademark G. over at The Evolution Control Committee, an ode to a librarian love of his past.

"From Aardvark to Zythum" Poem By TradeMark G.

I remember the day
When I first did lay
My eyes on your spectacled face
Topped with blond curls
Reading Funk & Wagnall's
At the library of Orsonville Place

I felt my jaw drop
As you looked up
Some word beginning with I
And I said "S'cuse me,
How 'bout you 'n' me
Look up something beginning with You."

When I think of your love
A to Z's not enough
I love you from Aardvark to Zythum!
Aardvark, my love!
Zythum, my love!
I love you from Aardvark to Zythum!

Now I love U
And U love I
But I and U aren't enough!
Not I to U,
But A to Z -
And even THAT'S not enough!

When I think of our love
A to Z's not enough
I love you from Aardvark to Zythum!
Aardvark, my love!
Zythum, my love!
I love you from Aardvark to Zythum!

Thank you Trademark G.!

Off The Charts


I finally got a copy of "Off The Charts: The Song Poem Story", and it's a great film! I highly recommend it if you are interested in Song Poem music. You can get it on Ebay pretty cheap (I only paid one cent plus four bucks shipping) so check it out!

Wowee Zowee! Some Really great poems have been coming in now! I'm up to my neck in 'em! Like I said previously, I can't guarantee that every poem will become a song, but the material I've been getting is all worthy! So bear with me as it may take a while to see your work fully realized as a poem, I don't have a full group of musicians to back me up or else I'd just pump 'em out like days of old. Your poems will be made in the order they are received.

Special thanks goes to PCL LinkDump for the help, without you some cool cats probably would never have found me! Also thanks to all the others who have linked to this site!

SONG POEM #4

Really not sure what this one is about or what "Teffelone" is exactly, but the poems writer Otis Fodder says it's dedicated to someone. I'm guessing that it's a nickname or inside joke of some kind. Anyway here 'tis, sung by my good friend the fantastic Andy and his Apple Boppers!

"Teffelone" Poem by Otis Fodder

Teffelone Teffelone
How do you do?
Cherry Lollipop?
Rockets for Two?

A String and a bag
Can be such a treat
Or one stoplight
And a Pie Made of Meat

Praise the lord, I'm A Man
A Manley Man Man
And you are a woman
You god fearing woman
From the tiny small town
Of Pepe Le Pew
One stoplight and a Pie made of meat
Lord what a treat

Two Two Two Five Three
I Found Love
Two Two Two Five Three
Trust Trust TRUST TRUST TRUST
Cause I am...
Teffelone Teffelone Teffelone
I'm I'm
Teffelone Teffelone Teffelone
I'm I'm
Teffelone Teffelone Teffelone
And Teffelone is
the most beautiful word
in the world...

Thanks Otis for the great poem!

SONG POEM #3

This Poem was written by an old friend of mine, Josh. I just performed it folk style with clunky guitar and mouth harp under my folk alter ego, A. James Barnswallow.

"Moratorium" Poem by Josh Courtney

Tantalizing my mind with thoughts of thinking
Nothing more though it seems
I've caught my breath underneath the sheets
Burning the ashes like feeding the full
Nevertheless I yearn for more
Purity contained in lustful thoughts
Afraid of the future damning the past
Looking further and further into the end
Not sure where to go, but forwards a choice
Can this just be failure picking on me?
Or rather devastation making me
All in all life is grand
But I make the choice of filtering the sand

Thanks Josh for the words!

SONG POEM #2

Hello again! Here's the second song poem for you all. This time you get to hear me at my Magic Organ!
All of the laughing you hear is my own voice multi-tracked. Hope you like it!

"Laughing" Poem By Michael Leigh

I was laughing fit to bust
Laughing so much
I thought I'd pop
All the buttons on my shirt
I laughed so much it hurt

I just couldn't stop laughing
What a hoot!
I thought my sides would split
They did!
And what's more
all my funny bones
Fell out on the floor!

Thanks Michael!

SONG POEM #1

Ok, Here tis the first song poem! It took me a while because I was having lot of computer problems, but things are getting back in shape now. Anyways here she is, please download and comment!

"Technicolor Tomorrows" Poem By Shawn Kiser

stand young girl
out the dark room window fly
and you thought you were high
bathed in the starlight
they are your eyes looking
down through crystal grey skies

she sleeps on cloud tops
trapped under a looking glass
they never know
the lightning sparks from your wand
shes strong in faith she dreams of love
she comes down to play
with imaginary friends by the lake

go make your round to the flowers
holding hands dance in a circle
the sea is a sky
the sea is a sky

dive into the rushing waters
on the clouds slumber
for all
dream of colorful tomorrows


Thanks Shawn for the great poem!
