How Sad Venice Can Be (or Tribute to Charles)

“How sad Venice can be”…especially with Charles Aznavour there
Although sombre he may be, but at least he’s not square!
and there is a kind of sarcastic humour hidden behind the sad facade
a small and yet not dangerous man! To like him wouldn’t be hard
He once serenaded “Miss Piggy” on “The Muppet Show”
When I played his greatest hits, I felt inside a warm glow (like Ready Brek!)
Charles Aznavour, Charles Aznavour
Your lyrics mean so much more
than any ballad singer I’ve heard before
Maybe in another time
your songs would’ve seemed sublime
But in this overly cynical teen obsessed market…they’re seen as a crime
Charles,when you bow out with your “Swan Song”
It may be at least 6 minutes long
Like the classic “No, I Could Never Forget”
and “What Makes A Man?” is your best yet
You’ve been around for “Donkey’s Years”
I listened to “I Drink” and I cried real tears
as you poured your heart out about your private fears
But Charles, would it be of me so wrong
If I begged you to write a happy song
Just this once, Charles!

Save the Whale

I knew a girl called Amanda, she had perfect teeth
She loved ABBA and wasn’t afraid to give our leaders grief
I really did love Amanda
Out to save the whale, rhino and panda
Not one to fall for bullshit or propaganda
She was quite some girl, was Amanda
One day, while out on a demonstration
against the evils of vivisection
things turned ugly and she was shot by a policeman
There she was lyin’ in a pool of red
When the ambulance arrived, she was already dead
Amanda, I remember you on the campaign trail
You sung with much gusto “Save The Whale”
The bastard who shot you belongs in jail
The police should answer for their crimes…
But they get away with it time after time…

As for Amanda, Rest In Peace.

Craig, Will and Clio

I’m sitting on a “Renault Clio” bonnet
reading one of Shakespeare’s sonnets
not Craig Shakespeare, he was a striker for Wallsall
No, the one married to Anne Hathaway, who had it all
Style, poise and excellent performance
Not unlike his namesake, Craig
But unlike a “Renault Clio”
I have to say ‘though
With some you associate
The true meaning of the word great
“Othello”, “Merchant Of Venice” and “Midsummer Night’s Dream” we adore
and as for Craig Shakespeare, put him in any half decent team and he’d score
But you’ll be cursin’ your “Renault Clio” when it breaks down on the M4!
Oh! Well! Never mind.
