only august by pd lyons


i love rock and/or roll

i love rock and / or roll

 

 

~

only august

crows

almost quiet

only feather sounds

rising

almost still

only slow

steady beating

as if horses

finally

taught themselves

to march in order

across the fields

almost green

only smoky

spiral dust

almost damp descending

mirage

as if insects

finally taught themselves

to sing

like falling rain

across midday

almost yawning

only august

Blonde In The Bleachers
by Joni Mitchell

The blonde in the bleachers
She flips her hair for you
Above the loudspeakers
You start to fall
She follows you home
But you miss living alone
You can still hear sweet mysteries
Calling you
The bands and the roadies
Lovin’ ’em and leavin’ ’em
It’s pleasure to try ’em
It’s trouble to keep ’em

‘Cause it seems like you’ve gotta give up
Such a piece of your soul
When you give up the chase

Feeling it hot and cold
You’re in rock ‘n’ roll
It’s the nature of the race
It’s the unknown child
So sweet and wild
It’s youth
It’s too good to waste

She tapes her regrets
To the microphone stand
She says “You can’t hold the hand
Of a rock ‘n’ roll man
Very long
Or count on your plans
With a rock ‘n’ roll man
Very long
Compete with the fans
For your rock ‘n’ roll man
For very long
The girls and the bands
And the rock ‘n’ roll man”
© Joni Mitchell

Killer, by pd lyons


Killer

rock n roll
kick ass not fade away

so afraid of you
they tried to blame it all on Elvis

rock n roll
kick ass not fade away

somewhere there’s the killer
ain’t never been no fuckin’ king

soft girls
hard liquor
get ‘em movin’
get ‘em dancin’

wherever you are
somewhere in that pure American night
hope you’re bangin’ a piano
hope you’re ready for a fight

( for jerry lee – who else?)

“pop” 

original lyrics by pd lyons

music by b. lyons

Down the streets of ecstasy
I’ll take my chances endlessly
And there’s no need for me to run
With my fingers wrapped around a gun

reality what can it be
But a misery you set for me
there’s no sense in wanting more cuz
this is what I  been put here for

Look around What do I see?
there ain’t nuthin here for me
Look around what do I see
There ain’t nuthin more for me

You preachers of morality
how would you do to live like me
heaven’s just a novelty
another thing denied to me

so down the streets of ecstasy
I’ll make my way most carelessly
and you can judge it tragedy,
but I wont surrender easily

Look around What do I see?
there ain’t nuthin here for me
Look around what do I see
There ain’t nuthin more for me

So down the streets of ecstasy
I take my chances endlessly
and there’s no need for me to run
with my fingers wrapped around a gun

Killer – ain’t never been no king


Killer

get ‘em movin’

wherever you are

hope you’re bangin’ a piano
hope you’re ready for a fight
