If Wishes Were Horses

 

My daughter was 15 when she recorded this one. (She is 25 now) So, while I find it a bit pitchy, the words are discernible.  Plus this is one of my earliest lyrics and I just wanted it to rhyme more than I wanted to make any point…Now, when I look at reminiscing I see what a blessing that is.  Click My song page link found above if you care to give it a listen♫  Linking to letter I for Alphabe-Thursday.

And I would be remiss if I didn’t take this opportunity to announce my just published novel!!
MILLENNIUM GIRL is a Sci Fi piece looking at a thousand years on one planet looking through the eyes of primarily one girl.  Click on the link found above to take you to it’s Kindle edition. It also is available as a paperback and hardcover at all the regular outlets♪

1. My mother always told me of story book rhymes.
They seemed to hearten her and I liked the good times.
We’d fill our heads with all of the easy anecdotes.
They all come back to me like a fuzzy warm house coat.
My mother’d say…
Refrain:
If wishes were horses then beggars could ride.
Now all these verses hide in my memory alive.
Like rich man, and poor man, and beggarman, thief,
Doctor, and lawyer, and the merchant chief.
Oh what a tangled web we weave
When we practice to deceive.
2. Mother always watched all the movie musicals.
We’d curl up on the couch and enjoy the guys and gals.
My head was always filled with romantic comedies.
They all come back to me like a cure-all remedy.
I hear her say… (refrain)
We are the only ones that we deceive.
When we get caught up in memories.
Oh what a tangled web we weave
When we practice to deceive.
~
We are the only ones that we deceive.
When we get caught up in memories.
3. Mother always read all the romance novelettes.
She would laugh out loud at the hero’s fumbled mess.
She lived all of her life in her house vicariously.
Now all she has in store is a faulty memory.
She’d always say….(refrain)
We are the only ones that we deceive.
When we get caught up in memories.
Oh what a tangled web we weave
When we practice to deceive.
