I Was Just Listening

to one of their older albums, To my children's children's children. 

I love that one. I love that song Watching and Waiting. 

For the benefit of those who don't know the words, and for my own pleasure just to sing it in  my mind as I write it, I will write down the words:

Watching and waiting

for a friend to play with,

Why have I been waiting for

so long

Mole he is burrowing,

his way to

the  sunlight

He knows there's someone there

so strong

Cos here, there's lots of room to do it

the things you've always been denied

Look and gather all you want to

there's no one here to stop you

try-ing 

 

Soon, you will see me

cos I'll be all around you

but where I come from 

I can't tell

but don't be alarmed

by my fields and my forests

they're here for only you

to share

Cos here, there's lots of room to do it

the things you've always been denied

Look and gather all you want to

There's no one here to stop you

try-ing........

watching and waiting

for someone to understand me

I hope it won't be

ver-y long...........

 

No wonder I love the Moody Blues, so good at making beautiful songs that I can sing to express my own thoughts and feelings.

Well, I couldn't just let that go, now could I? x

my only diaper outlet in my life has to be in private, my wife hates my baby side, most people won't tolerate my bad smell. so write a lulaby to go with your wonderful poem
