SHOWTIME (original song) Another song fresh from my song tree, to raise your spirits and hopefully a few chuckles... SHOW TIME! BY CLIVE DAVIES CHORUS: KNOCK KNOCK IT'S GREENWICH MEAN TIME - UNLOCK YOUR PAD-LOCK BIG TIME CLOCKWORK SHOCK WORK GO TIME! IN TICK-TOCK TALK - IT'S SHOWTIME! IT WAS HALF PAST THE KNEE JOINT, SAID THE FIGURE ON THE CLOCK - THE TIME WAS ALMOST HALF PAST KNEE I HAD FLOWN IN TO ALASKA IN MY PIN-STRIPED JET, LANDING ON AN ICY FROZEN SEA THE WEATHER MILD AND BITTER, WITH A GLITTERING OF FROST - SO NICE TO BE HERE JUST IN TIME FOR TEA THOUGH THE LIME JUICE CURDLED CREAM ON TOP OF MY CUP - WHICH SORT OF STUCK TO MY PINK GOATEE ON THE DOT I SAW THE CLOCK HAD RE-ALIGNED A NOSE AND A HAND - THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE FIGURE I COULD SEE SO I WALTZED WITH MY TEACUP SWINGING FROM MY BEARD - TO MEET THE BOSS - THE NEW REVERED QUEENBEE NOW SENOR BUMBLE BEE HAD BUZZED ME - IF HIS BUZZING WAS CORRECT - I SHOULD 'WING' MY INTERVIEW WITH LADYBEE - SING HER AN OUTLINE OF MY STORY, LEAVING OUT THE GORY BITS - BY PRETENDING SHE WAS JUST A HONEYBEE CHORUS: KNOCK KNOCK IT'S GREENWICH MEAN TIME - UNLOCK YOUR PAD-LOCK BIG TIME - CLOCKWORK SHOCK WORK GO TIME! - IN TICK-TOCK TALK - IT'S SHOWTIME!

GASPING AS I GRASPED THE MEANING OF THIS SILLY SCENE, FEELING SUCH AN INEFFECTUAL WANNABEE BUT QUEENIE WAS A HONEY AND AWARDED ME THE JOB - AND THE MONEY, AND ANOTHER CUP OF TEA! THE MORAL TO THIS TALE IS, IF YOUR FAILURE TO ALIGN THE FIGURE ON THE CLOCK YOU CANNOT SEE YOU NEED TO PAUSE ( ..2, 3, 4 ) LOOK FOR THE CAUSE - IT MAYBE JUST ANOTHER TYPE OF BEE... SO BE CAREFUL, TYPE YOUR RESUME, WITH SOME CRAFTY LYRIC LINES THAT DEFINE YOURSELF AS DIFFERENT TO ME CHOOSING WORDS TO RE-ALIGN YOUR CLOCK, THAT TICKS AS WELL AS TOCKS - AND YOU'LL GET THE JOB WITHOUT THE THIRD DEGREE!

LEMON SMILES (original song) I felt that all of my music projects waiting for completion were too 'heavy' for this challenging and uncertain time that the whole world now finds itself in... So, starting out from scratch with a nonsense line - just grabbed from fresh air, I began writing a song - with a SMILE in it... LEMON SMILES by Clive Davies Pipped at the gate post fizzy lemons whizzing by Winged horses riding lemon rainbows in the sky Pancho's mulish foolish looks mirror his own mule Are Don Quixote challenges of a clever man or fool? Schools offer answers as in higher schools of fish Lemon wishing helps when riding rainbows as we wish Beaching whales as in a country dancing is divine Lemons foster fitness changing water into whine Machiavelli lemon jelly well he really didn't know Lemonade is not a charity for clarity begins at Homer was a poet philosophic wannabee Buzzing lemon blossoms on the bitter lemon tree Homer came to grips with novel quips and arty crafty scholar Ships of the desert regions lemon heaven blessed Well rested after contemplating lemon fish and chips Allowed unzipping of his fruit revealing lemon pips! Unzip a lemon taking care as you incise For limes looks like a lemon not a melon in disguise So here's a rip-off of a tip-off I've wrapped it up in prose It's fun to squeeze your pips to hit your target on the nose!

BLARNEY MAN (original song) A delightful Irish family, the Kenny's, lived next door to us in Oxford, and Dad's great Irish friend George Ryan gave me my first guitar. In 1968, my big brother Les and I hitch-hiked across Ireland to Tralee - where the Guinness Folk Festival, the Rose of Tralee competition and the Trotting Races all combined - such a wealth of Irish experience - interesting people, music, humour, the 'Blarney' was everywhere - surely building the foundations of Irish wackiness into my young mind... The Blarney Man by Clive Davies 1) THE CUTEST TOWN IN IRELAND WHERE THE BLARNEY SHOWS ITS FACE TICKS OVER AT A SLOWER PACE TO ALL WHO CALL FOR ALE NOW SEAMUS THERE IS OFTEN DUBBED AS NOT THE BRIGHTEST IN THE PUB - BUT BEGORRAH AND BEDAD THE LAD COULD REALLY TELL A TALE LICKING MENTAL PENCIL LEAD, HE'D TINK A MESSAGE TO HISSELF THEN LEANING ON THE MANTELSHELF HE'D START TO WHET HIS WILES GRINNING AND A-GLARING – SURE HE'S AWAY WITH THE FAIR-IES AND A COUPLE OF HAIL MARY'S - TOSSED INTO THE SKY! CHORUS: TIDDLYWINKS WE'RE ODDS AND SODS IN THE KINGDOM OF THE GODS ROLLICKING, FROLLICKING, BOLLICKING FUN AT THE BLARNEY BAR TODAY 2) IS IT FACT OR IS IT FICTION THAT THE TELLER OF THE TALES HAS A BLARNEY STONE ADDICTION WHICH THE KISSING NEVER FAILS HE TELLS OF SUCH ADVENTURES - ALL THE DREAMERS ARE EXHILARATED ACTIVATED, ANIMATED - PICKLED TINK - AND STIMULATED THIS SEAMUS FELLA HELD THEM WITH HIS HOLY GRAIL OF TALES AND THE PUB ENTERED THE GUINNESS BOOK OF RECORDS FOR THEIR SALES HE'D TROT THE PLOTS AND STORYLINE HE'D LIFT HIS SNOUT AND SHOUT WHILE THE PEOPLE FELL ABOUT - AND LAUGHED THEIR TONSILS INSIDE OUT! 3) UNDERNEATH THEIR PADDY CAPS - SMOKY TEETH LIKE DOMINOES WRINKLED NOSES, EARS DELIGHTED, BLINKING EYES IN SMILING FACES, CHEWING PIGGIES TROTTERS, BAKED PRATIES AND PISTACHIOS SHEBEEN KISSERS WHITE PAINTED WITH GUINNESS STOUT MOUSTACHIOS! 4) ARE THESE FLIGHTS OF FANCY WHERE HIS FERTILE TINKING SAILS IRISH MISTY - PASS THE WHISKEY - IS THE FELLA TELLING TALES..? IS IT PHONEY - OR ONLY BALONEY - NEAT AND SWEET BUT NEVER SOUR WORD SPINNING AND WORD WEAVING - AT TEN TOUSAND WORDS AN HOUR! 5) WHY NOT FIND OUT FOR YERSELF, IF YOU'VE A DAY TO FIND YERSELF HERE AND NOW, TURN LEFT - (NO RIGHT..?) - AH, GO OTHER WAY! FOLLOW THE FELLA, THE PRIEST AND TINKER, NOT FORGETTIN' THE GUINNESS DRINKER YOU'RE IN FOR A TREAT - SO FOLLOW YOUR FEET - TO THE BLARNEY BAR TODAY..!

Anastasia (original song) A commission inspired this fantasy song... 'A Fairy story, please..!' This was from Susie, my sweet musical darling wife, who sometimes makes a suggestion (more like an instruction! ha, ha,) I'm smiling as I write this, because this clever lady intuitively knows which type of music will provide a startling contrast for my next weekly video post..! So here is a Fairy story, delicately placed between sections of an instrumental called Anastasia that I wrote for a young Montefrio student, Anna, about three years ago.

TOP SECRET (original instrumental, remix) This is one of a number of pieces where I started with a blank slate, searching for a melodic, harmonic or rhythmical idea. Though, these days more often than not, I'll have a wee sketch written in notation or TAB or even words, which I use to kick-start a development... Any of these can give me a visual scenario which also stimulates my imagination - and sometimes provide a title at this early stage, which further encouraging my creativity..!

MOLLY'S CHRISTMAS WISH (original song) Talk about winging a song - this has a WET PAINT placard..! Focused on reading the lyrics, I allowed my vocals to improvise - and left the chords up to my fingers... Then, Santa pyjamas on (as promised) - I pressed record... (Hopefully, my editing doesn't spoil my Christmas story..) *The lyrics themselves started all over the place (- as my wacky songs do) - until I rhymed Jolly with Molly... Factual background: My two brothers and I had an Auntie Molly, who was always a little sad, except when she wasn't..!!! Sister of Uncle Laurie, who was married to Auntie Milly - our Auntie Molly lost her fiancee in the war. She never had a boyfriend and, living alone, she never ever married..!

It starts with the music that is a little guitar study, then I improvise on the scribbled chords in the middle section - and end off with the study again..! Oh, and the guitar is a sweet 3/4 sized student model that I bought new in UK last month, for seventy pounds..!

Using the 'Good Morning Blues' of Lead Belly fame (as so many Blues players do...) I'd loosely sketched some new verses... However - I'm only a dabbler in the Blues Style - so what finally came out is a wacky nonsense piece (though at the very end I do hope there's some sort of resolution ...!) LoL

Pumpkin Houses (original song, remix) Let's talk about pumpkin Pied a Terre's and cucumbersome homes That fulfil the two essentials we need Let's talk about eating where we live and living so cheaply, 'Cos we grow our own houses from seed! Let's talk about eating marrow raw as we nibble out a doorway And have breakfast on a passage or two Let's talk about lunching on the lounge with a little marrow-juana Let's talk about vegetable bedroom stew Chorus: Oh, Oh, eat me a hole in a new house Eat me a place to stay Gonna get me an artichoke architect To digest my accommodation needs - today! Let's talk about vegetarian pests, I never have them as guests 'Cos they eat me out of house and home... I was once a marrow cook, with a narrow outlook Now I'm a broadbeaned gastronome! Chorus: Oh, Oh, eat me a hole in a new house Eat me a place to stay Gonna get me an artichoke architect To digest my accommodation needs - today! My calabash cottage is the avocado Ritz For me to habituate With a full fat tummy and roof above my head I'll settle down - lean upon my beanbag - and vegetate!

TRIPLICATA (original guitar suite) The suite begins with a 6/8 arpeggio Prelude (- only a few hours old - it's virtually an improvisation that uses my 'Skeleton' chords - high fretted notes interspersed with open strings..!) The middle movement is a slow 4/4 Song that precedes the Dance which is in 6/8, both of these are dusty (rusty!) LoL - older pieces that I've never recorded before...

SOME PEOPLE (original song) 1) SOME PEOPLE LIVE WITHOUT EMOTION, WON'T GET THEIR FEET WET IN THE OCEAN OF LIFE.. THEY'RE NOT PREPARED TO SAY, THAT SOMEWHERE BETWEEN A NOD AND A WINK, SOME PEOPLE APPLY A RULE OF THUMB - SOME ARE DOING GOOD DEEDS – OTHER’S ARE LOOKING THE OTHER WAY..! 2) SOME PEOPLE MIX A POTENT POTION – FOCUSING ON SELF-DEVOTION FABRICATING SELF-PROMOTION - JUST TO GET YOUR VOTE SO BUTTON YOUR COAT - OPEN YOUR MIND, AWARE OF THINGS THAT MIGHT BLINDSIDE YOU JUST READ THE WEATHER CAREFULLY, AND YOUR BOAT WILL STAY AFLOAT..! 3) SOME PEOPLE GO THROUGH ALL THE ACTIONS, AND FOR THE MEREST FRACTION OF THEIR LIVES HEADS BOWED THEY MUMBLE - THEN THEY WALK AWAY... HAVING PAID THEIR WEEKLY PENANCE, AND SALVED THEIR SHAKY CONSCIENCE THEY'RE ALL FIRED-UP AND LICENSED TO BEHAVE IN THE SAME OLD WAY..! 4) SOME PEOPLE SEEM TO GET IT WRONG, WHILE OTHER’S SEEM TO GET IT RIGHT BUT DON’T LET APPEARANCES DECEIVE YOU - MOST FOLKS ACHIEVE SO MUCH BELIEVE IN YOUR SELF, YOU’LL FIND YOUR FORTUNES - ARE IN LIFE, AND NOT IN COOKIES JUST LOOK AND LISTEN BEFORE YOU LEAP – AND DEVELOP A SENSITIVE TOUCH..! 5) SOME PEOPLE KEEP AN EVEN KEEL, ENABLING THEM TO STAY QUITE STABLE, RIDING A GALE, THEY’RE HALE AND HEARTY – THEY’RE ON THE UP AND UP... ENJOYING THE SWEET FRUITS OF THEIR LABOUR, SWEATING, TOILING - LOVING LIFE THEY’RE LIVING LIFE FOR ALL IT’S WORTH - AND NEVER GIVING UP..!

FLAT CAT (original, remix) by Clive Davies In the MARSHMALLOW among the TWEEDS, a tiny SELF lay sleeping Covered in CLOVER, nothing he HEEDS, though his mind through a dream softly PEEPING His mind through a dream softly PEEPING Curled in a ball of CANDYFLOSS, three little TWICE lay DREAMING Neither one nor the other one noting the loss - of the fourth little TWICE who was SCHEMING The fourth little TWICE who was SCHEMING Cheshire a FlatCat eating his dinner, FURRING in contented splendour Waiting for something or nothing to GLIMMER - waiting for something to end-or... BEGIN! A CREAM filled the air of the BRASSY wallow - up SELFED the JUMP - in a hurry! A MONSTER came over the FRIDGE to follow - his FOOTSTOMPS in kind of a CURRY His FOOTSTOMPS in kind of a CURRY 'ZOT!' cried the SELF - as he shot with his P UN - the FLATCAT lay sighing in GLASSES 'OH, Toe is ME! MY Good DEED is DONE!' And rewarded he was... with MOLASSES! And rewarded he was... with MOLASSES!
