Verse 1-

I've been a struggling songwriter
since nineteen-sixty-three,
and still trying to make a hit song
in a tough economy,
my friends got rich in other ways
they're always telling me,
It's time to lose the guitar,
get a job and let it be....

Bridge-

But there's gold
I've yet to fret over
and press out of those strings,
so I'm gonna keep on picking
till my music sets me free..

Chorus-

That perfect lyric,
the perfect song,
a stellar melody
that's yet to come along,
eager producers who
are looser than a whore,
to please me with some C.D.'s
that the public will adore....

Verse 2-

It's like that perfect woman
that men all hope to find,
you'll spend a lifetime looking
trouble is.... true love is blind,
then when you think you got her
stumbling onto to someone real,
she'll steal your heart,
then she'll depart
and leave you far behind.

Bridge-

I'm just a chord or two away
I know I'm getting close,
but when I play it back I find
I'm haunted by the ghost...

Chorus-

of.... That perfect lyric
that perfect song,
a stellar melody
that's yet to come along,
eager producers who
are looser than a whore,
to please me with some C.D.'s
that the public will adore....

verse 3-

It's like a 2 lb lobster
that is sweet and freshly steamed,
gotta pick to find the good stuff,
in the shells of what you've dreamed,
I've been eating tuna so long,
like my songs it's all been canned,
Dear Lord can't you show some mercy
won't you help me understand...

Chorus-

That perfect lyric
that perfect song,
a stellar melody
that's yet to come along,
eager producers who
are looser than a whore,
to please me with some C.D.'s
that the public will adore....

That perfect lyric, that perfect song...........

I cannot believe you do not make enough money with your words, your work is magical, and to think of all the money footballers get, and for what nothing. Put your work in a book, i will buy a 100 copies and send one to all my friends... love and hugs Brenda xx
