My Rubber Banjo

To Everyone On Hub Pages

This one
Is for everyone
And even for you...Blake4d

Oh my, my

My rubber banjo
It always stays tuned
When I strum it with my fingers
It makes magick and music for all of you
My first rubber banjo
It was a gift from a friend
Who was a mentor that told me
It not you, its the magick that really is true
He told me all of life is just a song
But most people don't choose to sing along
Just remember that all lives have their songs
But most of us choose
Not to sing along

You're like rubber
My lovers, my family, and friends
Watch me bouncing this rubber ball
And it will stick to you too
We are rubber our love will always
Be stuck to me and to you
If we are really that close
Then you already know all about me, you see
It was never the point, its just a song
But most friends won't think they should sing along
Remember this moment, singing this song
Someday I won't be here
To help you sing at all

So won't you just sing along now
Won't you sing along with my rubber banjo
I'm so glad that I found you
While the radio plays
Outside it is raining

" Your love is better than ice cream
Better than anything else that I've tried
Your love is better than ice cream
But everyone here knows how to cry..."

Oh my, my

My love is like rubber
To all my dear hubbers
To my fans, online friends
To all my readers so loyal to the end
My love has no other no need for another day
All my life has been so blessed
That all of these strangers and saints
And these sweet lovers send me energy
My art and their hearts always played for me
Like my heart loves playing for them everyday
Strumming on my rubber banjo

So won't you just sing along with me now
My muses have told me that it's just a song
But for all of you won't you just sing along
Let me help you remember your lives and be stronger
For tonight let me show you
You can just listen as I sing it for you
I'm so glad that you can hear it too
I'm so glad that I found you

So won't you just sing along now
Won't you sing along with my rubber banjo
I'm so glad that I found you
While the radio plays
Outside it is raining

" Your love is better than chocolate
Better than anything else that I've tried
Your love is better than chocolate
Everybody here knows how to fight..."

Won't you just sing along now
Without my rubber banjo or me
I was so glad that I'd found you
While the radio played our song

" It's a long way down
To the place where we started from..."

When I am gone someday
Remember that all life is a song
But most of us don't choose to sing along
Just remember that all our lives have their songs
But most of us choose
Not to sing along
Then we're gone

My hand strumming slow
Just sing along
One last song

Oh my, my

I always feel so sorry for those who can't find it in themselves to sing along....I always feel like they are missing out...Happy and upbeat, a nice way to begin my day. Voted up.
