the light in your eyes


here is a song I made up this morn. click where it says listen here carl


I watched a guy get his tooth pulled in Morocco
In a jam packed square in Marrakech
By a so called dentist with a monkey on a leash
With a pair of pliers in his paws

And as the dentist would pull on the monkeyís arm
The monkey would yank on the tooth
And that monkey was grinning from ear to ear
And the crowd was starting to cheer

Now Iíve seen a lot of things
Huge shiny diamond rings
And Iíve seen two grown men cry
But I never saw the light
Like I did in your eyes
The light in your eyes

Watched a guy get sick on a rolling ship
In the middle of a storm on the North Sea
And that storm was so rough that I thought I would die
That ship felt as light as a toy

And I prayed all night on my hands and my knees
And the storm finally let up
The captain let out a yell and a cry
As the sun broke through from the sky

Now Iíve seen a lot of things
Huge shiny diamond rings
And Iíve seen two grown men cry
But I never saw the light
Like I did in your eyes
The light in your eyes

I watched my sister give birth to my niece in a room
In a hospital in San Diego
I was supposed to take pictures of the whole shebang
I smiled when she made me the offer

But when I got in that room and it started to happen
My eyes filled with tears and my hands couldnít move
The doctor just laughed and my sister just sighed
I was frozen in time and I started to cry

Now Iíve seen a lot of things
Huge shiny diamond rings
And Iíve seen two grown men cry
But I never saw the light
Like I did in your eyes
The light in your eyes

Hey Stevekins --
Who's that harmonizing with you?

What a beautiful song. :)

Dear Poltzio,

1) Who is this "Carl" person, and 1a) why are you so insistent that he listen to all of your new songlets?

2) So you've seen me cry. So what. Big deal. Shut up. ;-P

p.s.: Please send me some of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil. If it will truly cure my cough in 20 minutes and my backache in 2 hours, I will be forever in your debt.

p.p.s.: Ouch. Coughing hurts. Does Dr. Thomas do express shipping?

No wonder your voices blended so well together. Is it a different personality, or just the regular one?
