I always wanted to learn to play the Sax as it is such a soulful instrument.
I wrote these words with Chet A Blum

SAXOPHONE

THERE WAS THIS DISHEVELED GUY
THAT I'D PASS ON THE BY AND BY
HE WAS OUT IN THE OPEN
WITHOUT A PLACE TO HIDE

I KNEW THERE WAS MORE TO HIM
AND SO ON A WHIM
I ASKED IF HE COULD PLAY THAT SAX
BY HIS SIDE


HE NEVER UTTERED A SINGLE WORD
HE PLAYED THAT SAX LIKE I'D NEVER HEARD
I STOOD AND WATCHED
STARTLED BY HIS SOUND

WHEN HE WAS DONE HE JUST LOOKED AT ME
I TOOK OUT NEW CRISP TWENTY
I BENT DOWN...PUT IT IN THE BOX
ON THE GROUND


SAXOPHONE...SAXOPHONE
SUCH A GORGEOUS SOUND
FLOWS FROM THE LIPS
OF THIS MAN I FOUND

SAXOPHONE...SAXOPHONE
FEELINGS IT EMOTES
FILLS HEARTS AND MIND
WITH BEAUTIFUL NOTES


CHRISTMAS EVE... WAS THE VERY NEXT NIGHT
SOMETHING DEEP INSIDE... FELT SO RIGHT
SO I ASKED HIM IF HE'D LIKE LIKE TO COME HOME
WITH ME

HAVE A BED, A HOT MEAL... A BATH
SHARE TALES.... AND HAVE A LAUGH
HE COULD TELL ME HOW HIS LIFE
HAD COME TO BE

(REPEAT CHORUS)

TOLD ME...YEARS AGO WHEN HE WAS YOUNGER
HE HAD THIS BURNING HUNGER
TO JUST PLAY HIS SAX
AND RAISE A SMILE OR TWO

AND THOUGH LIFE HAS TAKEN IT'S TOLL
THE DESIRE STILL FILLS HIS SOUL
HE SAID THAT I'M DOING
WHAT I WAS BORN TO DO

Barry (and Chet):

This is a gem. Thanks for posting the lyric and for sharing this one with us. We've all seen them here and there... a street corner, the subway, a crowded street full of storefronts. One of your best. Enjoyed. I always thought "that must be the most difficult instrument in the world to play... with all those valves and a reed mouthpiece." For what it's worth, your song made me smile.

----Dave

Music is good. The lyrics are especially poppy and bland however.

Well if your goal is to write a hit(I.E. make money) then you are on the right track.

If your goal is to be an authentic songwriter that will respected and last, better make a U-turn.

It sickens my stomach when I hear/read supposed songwriters attempting to make hits. Corporate mindsets on a small scale. Who needs more of that rubbish in todays world?

But now that I know your motivations I'll be sure to pass up listening to your tunes anymore.

Best of luck making a hit song!

99% of my songs are much more serious and most of my lyrics are top notch...SO mostly I write songs that touch my heart and others.....BUT it would be nice to get a cover once in awhile. I'm 72 and never even got close. You sound a bit nasty man so lighten up.

Not nasty your music is awesome. Turn that 99% into 100% and you got yourself a new subscriber. Your 72 and you have lived a life producing awesome music. You win period. The fact that you never had a hit is a compliment to your music. If you were to achieve a hit in todays world you should be ashamed.

So congratulations. Just get rid of this shitty song and stick to ones like your Lebron James song, which I have listend to ten times.
