The Death of Rock & Roll

Verse 1

So much has been said
About the death of Rock & Roll
I don’t think it died at all
It simply got too old

CHORUS

I still like the Rolling Stones
And I like the Doors
We all like the Grateful Dead
Who could ask for more

Verse 2

John and George are gone
So is Janis J.
I remember Jimi H.
I loved to hear him play

CHORUS

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS

Verse 3

Walk along the ruins
In the old part of Rome
And you will see
What Rock & Roll’s become

CHORUS

 

 

 

Michael Jackson 1958-2009

Verse 1

He was a great performer
He lived under the lights
We loved to watch him dance
Night-after-night

CHORUS

He filled his veins with poison
And couldn’t rest at night
He liked to sleep with children
And thought that it was right

Verse 2

He was a major star
His light was very bright
Yes, he was a Thriller
Night-after-night

CHORUS

Instrumental

CHORUS

Verse 3

He danced with the stars
And owned fancy cars
He changed his appearance
And traveled very far

CHORUS

Verse 4

He died a tragic death
His end was very sad
I guess I will miss him
My favorite song is Bad

CHORUS

I’ll change my ways
I’ll have nothing to say
Except I can’t stay

Amy’s Eyes

Verse 1

I know you’ve seen the Taj Mahal
And climbed the highest peaks
You’ve looked across the Amazon
And sailed the seven seas

CHORUS

But you’ve never seen Amy’s eyes
Green and full of life
They open up the sky
Bright and full of light

Verse 2

I know you’ve seen the London Bridge
And prayed at Notre Dame
You’ve skied at St. Moritz
And strolled along the Seine

CHORUS

Verse 3

You’ve seen the earth from outer space
And watched a falling star
You’ve stood among the Pyramids
And smoked a fine cigar

CHORUS

 

 

 

A Player from Greeley

Verse 1

I knew Todd “Hammond” Nealy
A player from Greeley
He owned a trailer
Talked like a sailor
Played the organ in a rock ‘n roll band
And thought of himself as the man
Yea, he thought of himself as the man

CHORUS 1

Oh he loved the ladies
They really drove him crazy
Oh he loved the ladies
He was a little shady
He was the man

Verse 2

He always had money
And thought he was funny
He smoked dope
It gave him hope
He played the organ in a rock ‘n roll band
And thought of himself as the man
Yea, he thought of himself as the man

CHORUS 2

Oh he loved the ladies
His mind was always hazy
Oh he loved the ladies
He seemed a little lazy
He was the man

In Marais (Paris 2009)

Verse 1

We met a woman
While visiting Marais
She was mysterious
Older, I would say

Chorus

She must have been an actress
Or someone with a past
She may have been a writer
A gig that did not last

Verse 2

She spoke French and German
Very much at ease
She said she made a movie
Back in sixty three

rHer glasses were so dark
She drank a glass of wine
Her mind was very sharp

You never know in Paris
It could have been a joke
You never know in Paris
She could have been a ghost

Chorus
