Write a lyric that describes someone who is fairly well known from JPF and let's see if people can guess who he or she is. Write about the qualities they possess and give us clues that we can find from our interchanges on the forums and in the shout box. The lyrics can be funny or sweet or even serious but of course not hurtful in any way. Let several people try to guess before you give away the answer.

Hi Jean,

I wrote one quite a while ago and there have been lots of new members since I posted it. I will even give a link to the MP3. My only request is that the members who have been here a while hold their guesses if they remember this one.

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/page_songInfo.cfm?bandID=812414&songID=6490654

My Friend

You and I have walked the edge
Out past the Milky Way
We’ve wondered into madness
But never had to stay
We have been called crazy
Most times by friends in jest
But clinically to tell the truth
We would have passed the test

Though I’m not sure exactly--------------------------- {Chorus
Where our paths will end
You can write this down in stone
You’ll always be my friend

Turnaround 4 bars

You have been saved by your God
More than once by your wife
I never have been really sure
What keeps me in this life
Are words like these my purpose
Is writing why I’m here
A voice to speak for those who can’t
To bring joy or a tear

Though I’m not sure exactly--------------------------- {Chorus
Where our paths will end
You can write this down in stone
You’ll always be my friend

Turnaround 4 bars

Different roads at different times----------- {Bridge
Each reaching for one goal
A place to rest, an ease, an end
For our immortal soul

Instrumental break- 8 bars

Now I’m not sure exactly--------------------------- {Chorus
Where our paths will end
But this I know for certain
You’ll always be my friend

Yes you can write this down in stone
You’ll always be my friend

You’ll always be my friend

Go ahead and post them here. Some people have dial up and it's hard on them to click around too much.

He's our mentor
He's our founder
Doesn't flounder from hard work
His to do list piled high
He could use himself a clerk

He's a mover
He's a shaker
Draws a line into the sand
Shows the stalkers to the door
When their posts get out of hand

He's a giver
Not a taker
No mistake he does his part
And the reason JPF
Somehow somewhere got it's start

He's a traveler
He likes touring
And exploring other lands
Visits Chapters round the globe
Seeking music, watching bands

He's a counselor
He's a bouncer
Never seen without his hat
Can you guess of whom I'm speaking
Hope you do, he's got your back! smile

Hi Lynn,

I like it, but you made it just a little too easy to guess. Now you have to put it to music and get the JPF choir to do it at the next awards show.

HIDee Mz Jeanie B!

Here's a Little "Hat's Off'er"....

"THE CUTEST 3-YR-OLD YOU EVER SAW!"

She Looks Like Jackie
She Writes Some..Wacky
(Especially when She Works With Me..)

She Hasn't Bungled
Our Song 'bout Jungles
(Tho "Explodin' Seagulls, Now, Are History!)

(CHORUS)
SHE'S THE CUTEST 3-YR-OLD..YOU EVER SAW!
(Her Avatar's In Black-&-White!)
Her Sense of Humor is "Quick On The Draw"
Lord That Lovely Lady SURE Can Write!

She Lives Back-East
To Say The Least
(& Lots of Her's A Mystery)

Right Now, She's Nameless
Someday: She's Famous
(& I Hope SOME of It Rubs-OFF..On Me!)

(REPEAT CHORUS)

(BRIDGE)
I Don't Dare Get a CRUSH On Her
'Cuz She's as Fragile..as..can be...
But My Brain Gets a RUSH from Her
(I Like Women Who Can OUT-Write Me!!)

(CHORUS OUT)
And SHE'S THE CUTEST 3-YR-OLD..YOU EVER SAW
(Her Avatar's in Black-&-White)
Near Havaad Yaard, I bet..She Paaks Her Caa?
&..LORD, That Lovely Lady Sure CAN Write!!!

(I'll Bet She's BLUSHIN'?)
But Lord that LOVELY LADY SURE Can WRITE!

I know, I know...hey I got Stan's in the first line LOL (good one Stan and I looooved your bridge) I think the challenge here will not be writing it per se but keeping it vague enough to keep inquiring minds guessing. Fun and novel challenge Jean!!

It is a goodun' Stan, and she is a sweet lady. If that 3 year old grows up anything like her it will be a better world. Now you and Lynn need to musicate them.

Well, I think I may have given it away, but here is one.

Oh, What A Man

Oh, what a man,
so good with his hands,
he really knows how to use 'em!
He can pluck great ideas
out of thin air.
And He shows that he cares
just by brushing his hair.
In a way, he's a little like Samson
Oh, what a man!


Oh, what a man!
He does what he can
for those all around him.
His heart is so big
he cares if others get hurt
He is so self-assured
He could even wear a skirt.
His life is his canvas.
Oh, what a man!

I actually started writing one, probably about the same time you worked on yours, but then felt really bad, because you have to know things about the person, and I felt limited, so I only came up with the chorus to this "Willie Nelson" country-style song:

She's a poster by day
with a Taylor by night
A mother of an artist
and an artist....
in her own write.

But that was it - then I got stumped.

HA! Might I take a guess on this one?

Very very good Stanerooski. I'm printing this out for sure to lord over my family!!

And thanks too to Lynn, John, Jean, and Tom for your kind assessments. FYI Tom I was just playing "The Broken Record" the other day. It really is good. Maybe I can talk to Joe W. about burning a few more copies for any interested parties...

Thank you again Stan, and no worries -- this broad hasn't blushed in decades (could be the Botox -- LOL, only kidding!)....

xoxo,

Y'know, "blushing with Botox" may be a line that needs a song to go with it.

HOWDY....Threatens to use her keys as a sword
After I say come on, I get not a word
Is she too kind of heart to follow up on her threat
I know it's still coming,just ain't arrived yet.

I wait & I wait for the retort as promised
But I know she's swamped so I just tossed this
out there to stir up the pot
I'm SORRY, THATS ALL I GOT

I wrote this back in 2002 inspired by a conversation on a JPF chat...

This was written to be done in the same way "Big John" is. the first verse has a different structure to the rest If it needs changing I can work on it.

Dangerous Dan
By Noel Downs Copyright (4 March 2002)

Dangerous Dan,
Was a powerful man,
Though a stubby five foot two.
He came into town,
Dirty and brown,
Needing a woman or two.

Dangerous Dan

Ria, Ricky and Tink,
Heard Dan’d come in,
Collectively known,
As the sisters of sin,
Wasn’t a man,
They couldn’t tame,
For his gold,
They’d prove their claim,

Dangerous Dan

They wanted his gold,
They were gunna buy mink,
But they made a mistake,
Gave him demon Drink,
Dan played for a bit,
While they stroked his fur,
Then gave them a stake,
Made those kitty cats purr,

Dangerous Dan

Well Dan went wild,
Sowing his oats,
Made short work,
Of a herd of goats,
Nothing was safe,
Not even the sheep,
The football team,
Couldn’t sit for a week.

Dangerous Dan

The sisters of sin,
Had all been tamed,
The football team,
Permanently maimed,
Dan left town,
Not a moment too soon,
Nine months on,
There was a baby boom,

Dangerous Dan.

Dangerous Dan.

My Tribute on the engagement of two JPFers

My apologies to Kris Kristofferson, It’s to the tune of Bobby McGee

Busted foot and lonely heart
By Noel Downs 7 Aug 01

Busted foot and lonely heart,
It always seemed the same,
Cooking a gourmet dinner,
Just for me.
Then Bobbie stepped into my life,
And eased away my pain,
And I knew there could be,
Two for tea.

Well I’ll just keep on cooking,
My way from here to heaven,
With Bobbie’s smile,
To blow away my blues,
And my gimpy foot a tapping time,
Bobbie singing sounds divine,
We’ll write ourselves a love song,
Just for two.

Gourmet cooking’s a lot more fun,
When you’re brewing up for two,
Just like writing songs,
When you’re in love.
There’ll be no blue tomorrows,
Like those yesterdays,
There’s heaven closer here,
Than above

A place just out of Nashville,
With a studio and range,
We’ll write some songs,
And create ourselves some dreams.
On broad wood porch in the afternoon
We’ll sing up those tunes,
Bobbie, Me, the crickets,
And the moon.

Gourmet cooking’s a lot more fun,
When you’re brewing up for two,
Just like writing songs,
When you’re in love.
There’ll be no blue tomorrows,
Like those yesterdays,
There’s heaven closer here,
Than above

Thanks for posting, Noel. I know who the people are in both of the songs but I'll never tell.

Thanks for posting this, Steven. Sorry I am late with this reply. I have been busy getting our school's Christmas Program ready. It's done now and I am on vacation so I can spend some time on the boards.

I have no idea who your mystery person is except that the subject is female. Can you writer in more clues?
