What, I write songs too? Part X

Maria’s roommate’s dog, Jolie, needs a ridiculous amount of attention. I think you’ll hear her whining away throughout these recordings. This will be the first of a large flurry of song posts – I’ll be putting up rough recordings of all my remaining originals by the end of the week so I might get reactions before I begin recording in a week.

Ever since I began busking I wanted to write a song about it all. This one depicts the more positive side of it.

From Dawn to Busk

Hello there, Mr. Passerby,
Won’t you stop and stay a while.
Listen to this song and you’ll hear why,
Don’t have to tip more than a smile.

I’m not a drunk, so please don’t glare,
There’s nothin’ in my case so why look down?
Come now meet my eyes please if you dare.
Just looking for some change to change that frown.

Take a break from hurrying.
Take a breath, then go on if you must.
Don’t feel guilty, stop worrying.
Tomorrow I’ll be here from dawn… to busk.

Why hello there, dearest little child,
You remind me why I stay to sing these songs.
Make me beam but don’t dance too wild,
Or Mom and Dad’ll say “Run along.”

Take a break from hurrying.
Take a breath, then go on if you must.
Don’t feel guilty, stop worrying.
Tomorrow I’ll be here from dawn… to busk.

Be you sad or lost or stressed, relax.
And smile along.
Smile along.
Smile along.

Hello there, Mr. Passerby,
Won’t you stop and stay a while.
Listen to this song and you’ll hear why,
Don’t have to tip more than a smile.

One thought on “What, I write songs too? Part X

  1. Hi! Your singing of \”From Dawn To Busk\” is the best I have heard. I love it. You sang it most musically without losing clear enunciation of the words and diction. And I hear the development of your singing style clearly in this recording, while in the past, I heard hints of it coming into being. By style I mean the way you form the words and phrases, you pauces and slides e.g. 'child' and 'wild' and 'there' and 'glare'. I thought the way you sang 'from dawn…to dusk' was very special and and the second 'smile along' concluded nicely the first. I thought your last verse of singing was most beautiful, with more feeling embedded into your voice. In this song too, the loud parts sound very natural. Involuntarily, my mood lifted and I got happier and optimistic. Thank you. I love it.
