In Greek mythology, the Echidna is the mother of all monsters, a half-woman, half-snake who gave birth to most of the Greek mythical creatures. She’s also a song on my CD “Share The Moon!”
Guitar by Brandon Raimondo.

Make it Linger
She’s a looker

A little longer!
Spin and swing her

We were living on the beach …
Sea, sand, walks so sweet and
Of course, the blueberries
You can throw a frisbee hard as you want
Into the wind Continue reading “Then There Were the Blueberries”

I left my frisbee in your bushes, I’ll be back another time
I’ve been cruising somewhere near the Saratoga line
From my understanding, you’ll be doing fine
And I’ll always have my hometown memories in my mind
Pretty sure you had a big bash, I could see it from the sky
For just a little girl I’m not sure I understand why
You’re going to need an entourage, everywhere you go!
I dropped everything you know!
You haven’t exactly been accessible
And your appetite’s insatiable
Your mansion is historical
But you are still untouchable
Tailor made, I’ll call your bluff! Continue reading “Tailor Made (A Poem)”
I had a dog he slept a lot
And a cat who disappeared
I had a dog a different one
And this one always wanted to run
I spent some time watching TV Continue reading “Dogs”
I got tabouli on my toes
And a little on my nose
I got in a fight with my woman
About some things in the kitchen
I wrote a song, it was too sad
About some experiences I had
And when I put it to the music Continue reading “Wrote This Song Instead”
One of my favorites of all time, from Elton John! Continue reading “Skyline Pigeon”
There won’t be any Judas in my story
‘Cause I’ve already been crucified
I ain’t got nothin’ left for the traitor
And seriously I just don’t got the time!
So if you were planning to betray me Continue reading “Just Don’t Got the Time (A Poem)”
The first song, “Dust,” from Fleetwood Mac, has always been a favorite of mine (1972, “Bare Trees”). Danny Kirwin (who played guitar for Fleetwood Mac along with Bob Welch, before Lindsay Buckingham, who joined in 1975 and co-wrote on 1977’s “Rumors”) wrote this music to an old poem about death.
I’ll transition into “Stardust,” Continue reading ““Dust” Into “Stardust””
It’s manipulation city once you walk in the door
Your day it’s free now you’re finally home
But when you turn that big ol’ living room corner
You get a hello with strings, and your a martyr and mourner!
Who you living for what you doin’
What’s your choice and your reason
It’s that time of the season
Ta go and give yourself a little squeezin’!
Now you think anybody’s gonna give a damn
If you do something that’s part of your plan? Continue reading “Part of The Plan (A Poem)”
