Harry Areola
© words and music by C. Stewart ( March 23, 2012 )


His mama's middle name was Mary
Drunkin' daddys name was Moe
Named their little boy Harry
Wow, look at that tree grow

Harry Areola

Harry cried at school one day
Both his eyes were black
He wondered what his dad would say
For never fighting back

Harry Areola

Now Harry's hangin' on the thirteenth fret of regret

Year after year, as things got darker
Harry and his hair had grown
Dark like a black magic marker
The circles of love full blown

Then one night Harry used a knife
Cut a man from ear to ear
Now Harry's got a structured life
For thirty five more years

Harry Areola

Now Harry's hangin' on the thirteenth fret of regret


Harry Areola

Now Harry's hangin' on the thirteenth fret of regret

hello calvin.

this is very well done IMO and very interesting. you hooked me from the beginning and I loved the switch up. [didn't see Harry's turn around coming.]

believe that it might need a little more in story telling, just a little though, to round it out.

just a thought.

I don't know, I kind of was expecting Harry to bounce around from place to place. Or maybe he had an overinflated ego that began to sag as he learned the truth about his parents lack of support for him.

It's cute as is but given the title I really expected more references to the obvious. Even a mention of darkening as time went by, or something.

Anyway, I'm done.

Yea, needs a little deeper story. From a school kid with black eyes to a murderer with a structured life? Just seems like something else needs to be in there. I've been gone for several years and never was one to add anything to anyones ideas unless requested. I like the makings of this story however.

I kinda like the idea of teasing us by not referencing the obvious at all....in fact, coming from you and your history, to tease us like that is wonderfully brilliant in my books.

I think you should write one in that vein called Great Big Dick (Cause Richard Won't Do)...

Good song Calvin, but not what I expected from you!

I was expecting something else from the title!

I guess I mistakenly read it as "Hairy" and my mind took me in a differont direction.

Hi Geneva,

It's always nice to have you drop in and speak your mind.
I love a play on words, Harry-hairy, etc, etc

let your mind go where it wants, don't stop it.

OK Cal...on the fly smile

Harry Calls Him Great Big Dick (Cause Richard Just Won't Do)
2012 John Voorpostel


Harry and Dick go together real well
But only Dick can dress real swell
Even Harry shaved down to his bare skin cells
Makes Dick look better au naturel

Only Dick can rise to the grand occasion
Yeah he always comes on through
Harry calls him great big Dick,
'Cause Richard just won't do


Normally close, like fraternal twins
When the girls drop by Dick always wins
Which is getting under Harry's skin
But he can only watch as Dick begins


Only Dick can rise to the grand occasion
Yeah he always comes on through
Harry calls him great big Dick,
'Cause Richard just won't do


There's a swagger in Dick
Harry just don't got
When the girls make a choice
Harry comes out flat


Only Dick can rise to the grand occasion
Yeah he always comes on through
Harry calls him great big Dick,
'Cause Richard just won't do

Hey Calvin,
Very cool updates. But look what you've done to John! You've got these men around here thinking of nothing but friendship songs......at least Harry has a friend though, makes him more like able.
