Battle Hymn of the Republic

Battle Hymn of the Republic

 
Cannot remember who taught me these verses, but I passed them on to my kids, my Girl Scout Troop and car pool kids.  Just wondered if anyone else was subjected to such whimsy♫♪

Participating in Alphabe-Thursday letter B.  Check out the other participants!
These tongue twisting verses go to the tune of the Battle Hymn of the Republic:

1. One pink porpoise popped up the hole
The other pink porpoise popped down 
One pink porpoise popped up the hole
 
The other pink porpoise popped down 
One pink porpoise popped up the hole 
The other pink porpoise popped down  
As one pink porpoise popped up the hole 
The other pink porpoise popped down

 
 
Refrain
Glory, glory how peculiar
Glory, glory how peculiar
Glory, glory how peculiar 
As one pink porpoise popped up the hole 
The other pink porpoise popped down

 
2. One free fly flew up the flue
The other free fly flew down…etc.
 
3. One warm worm wiggled up the walk
the other warm worm wiggled down…etc.

I’m sure more verses could be made up but these were enough to get everyone singing♫♪

Now that this is stuck in your head….deal with it! and have a nice day♥

Thunder in the Mountain

 

 

 

 

 


A chaotic instrumental….with lyrics attuned to nature’s wrath.  See what you think♥

Time for T….an entry for ABC Wednesday♫♪

Image

1. There may be thunder in the mountains and thunder on the plains,
There may be rocks along the road and heartache down the lane.
Floods run down the hillside and fire takes the trees.
There’s times when earth just opens up wide
And swallows all its needs.
 ~
You fill my future perfectly.
We can face each others fears,
Even when we’re wrapped in
Darkest night.
 ~
Refrain:
Thunder in the mountain
Precedes a future imperfect.
Rumbling our world apart,
Our love it will dissect.
 ~
Time will be on our side,
As we chart the course of our lives
Hanging on and focused
On our fight.
 ~
2. Illness may besiege us or we will face calamity.
We will feel like falling, collapsing to our knees.
We have just a lifetime to meet our destiny.
But know that love will hold together
When thunder claps its hands.
~
~
Refrain
 ~
3. You may hear the thunder pounding through your veins.
As grief has taken hold of your life expanding wounds and pains.
Tears will salt our lifetime, and test our love’s stronghold
But we will face the storms together
When thunder traps our peace.
 ~
Refrain
~
Heaven and earth may change their course but we’ll pass through it all.
Love is on our side, nothing can penetrate that wall.
 ~
You fill my future perfectly.
We can face each other’s fears,
Even when we’re wrapped in
Darkest night.
 ~
Refrain
 ~
Time will be on our side,
As we chart the course of our lives
Hanging on and focused
On our fight.
 ~
Refrain (2X)
 ~
Thunder in the mountain, love will pass the test
Thunder in the mountain, thunder put to rest.

Aqua’s End

 

An instrumental incorporating ocean waves!
Starting all over going, through the alphabet with Jenny Matlock♫ Alphabe-Thursday letter A
Check out other entries!

 
 
Aqua’s End
 ~
1. Thought you should know
We’re becoming more than friends.
Recently your oceanic eyes
Have been giving me the bends.
 
Falling into the depths of your heart
Is my Aqua’s End, my term for paradise.
I think I should be honest with the way I feel
And plunge into a headfirst dive.
 ~
Refrain:
I thought that you should know…Caught in your undertow…
I’m part of how your life has ebb and flow.
I thought that you should know…Caught in your undertow…
I’m part of how your life has ebb and flow.
 ~
You’re my best favorite friend, I’ll follow you to aqua’s end.
You’re my best favorite friend, I’ll follow you to aqua’s end.
 ~
I thought that you should know…Caught in your undertow…
I’m part of how your life has ebb and flow.
 ~
2. Time’s doin’ it’s thing;
Hour glass is dripping sands of time.
Lately you are like my lunar tide
Pulling me on emotion rides.
 ~
Falling into the depths of your heart
Is my Aqua’s End, my term for paradise.
I think I should be honest with the way I feel
And plunge into a headfirst dive.
 ~
Refrain
 ~
You’re my best favorite friend.
I’ll follow you to aqua’s end.
You’re my best favorite friend.
I’ll follow you to aqua’s end.

Raspberry Rain

 
My daughter has begun making up her own piano pieces and I really liked this tune, so I added some instruments and lyrics:  this is the resulting instrumental♫♪
Then I worked on a rainy Saturday and took some photos through my windshield without the wipers going….my postal truck’s big windshield makes for a great filter!!!

Raspberry Rain
~
1. It must have been a blustery day 
That threw you in my path to stay.
You make me feel these pelts of rain
That mark my heart with dripping stain.
The gripping storm defines our ties.
The maelstrom strikes beyond your lies.
But I’m not past our drama-rama.
Raspberry rain
Heart soaked with stain
Drizzled with pain.
2. Who said parting is such sweet sorrow?
Words I hoped never to borrow
  Sugar coated rotten tastes
Have caused myself to go to waste.
You’ve ruined me, so here’s the deal
I need time, some time to heal.
My heart’s been crushed to jam-a-rama
Raspberry rain
My heart’s down the drain
~
Splashing through deep puddles
Pulls me under
Cold and to the core
I’m drowning In this downpour
Floods of fallen tears
Break all my barriers…
3. I thought you were protecting me
But I’ll adjust, I’ll learn to be
observant of how things are done
And look out more for number one
I can’t depend, I won’t depend
On being sheltered from the rain.
You can’t be my umbrella fella
Raspberry rain
Heart soaked with stain
Raspberry rain
Heart soaked with stain
Drizzled with pain.
I’ll not be your drama momma…

Your Days Are Numbered

 

A heavy instrumental of dire warnings:
Participating in Alphabe-Thursday letter Y…click on the link and join in♫

 
1. Your Days are numbered.
No matter where you stand
Or how you stand or why you stand,
I know it’s crossed your mind,
That your days are numbered.
 
Oh, you have made your plans
And if you can, you’ll never have
To bother thinking that it’s
Your days that are numbered.
 
Chorus:
So open up you eyes and maybe you will realize
The Lord is in your life,
And He has your number.
 
Your Days Are Numbered (2X)
 
2. Try to remember.
You think that life’s a pain
And there is nothing to be gained.
Your problems overwhelm and
You can’t remember.
 
Oh days are speeding by,
And if you think of it you’ll try
To spend some perfect time,
But it’s your days that are numbered.
 
Chorus:
 
Your Days Are Numbered (5X)
 
3. You’re not to surrender
So just make up your mind to view
Your journey’s end is new.
The Word will give your cue,
So do not surrender.
 
You can persevere
And you will be inspired still,
And you will be relieved
That your days are numbered.
 
Keep opening your eyes, and now you can realize
The Lord is in your life,
And He has your number.
 
(mixed)
He has your number. (6X)
(Your days are numbered) (6X)
 
 
Not sure if it is an admonishment or an encouragement to Get Right with God, but this Age of Grace has to be nearer to its end than its beginning♫

Silky smooth talker
Phones you with the op.
To get in quick,
  Make your money thick
A chance that’s unique,
 (He knows what makes you weak.)
Your questions, he has answers
He’ll even stop you
To give you his reference number.
 Check it out at your convenience.
(Knowing all the while, it’ll never be researched.)
He’ll get back to you within the week.
This opportunity’s reached its peak!
 ~
You become the balker.
The investment price makes you stop.
‘Well, wait awhile, just got a text,’
Says our mysterious mr. X
‘My supervisor is at my side
 With a discount only he can provide.
You’re uniquely situated!
We can accommodate.’ You feel it’s fated.
‘Send the papers, here’s my card…’
Total transaction is not hard.
 ~
Everyone feels gratified
Until you need to be clarified.
X is off this week (or year)
And from him you’ll never hear
His money’s pocketed
You’ve been soaked
Buyer beware
Is never a joke.
