Bono’s Hats

Standard

bono

Bono’s hats are a cause for concern
Bono’s hats: when will he ever learn?
Bono is a hero…He deserves his place in Rock ‘N’ Roll’s Hall of Fame
But I’m afraid that Bono is a fashion disaster, all the same
Bono is a  clever man, but when he’s photographed in his hats
He always ends up looking a bit of a prat!
Bono was behind great songs like “Party Girl” and “One”, but I fear…
that when he’s dead he’ll be remembered for his awful choice of headgear!

Brighton and Hove

Standard

brighton

A visit to Brighton and Hove
is like stumbling across a treasure trove
From the cinema on the beachfront-to the wonderful shops in the “Lanes”
If you go to Brighton once you’ll want to go there again
A thriving gay/bisexual scene too
So much to see there and do
It’s really nice to go there when it’s sunny
‘Though heed this warning, you’ll need lots of spending money
Yes, Brighton’s not cheap, but it is great
For my next train ride there…I just can’t wait
Brighton and Hove, Brighton and Hove
like stumbling across a treaure trove…

Julie in Frisco

Standard

sanfran

Julie really loved living in San Francisco
She worked at the “Buddhist Cinema” in “Castro”
She had a hot Mexican lesbian lover
who was simply amazing under the covers
They had a well stocked up fridge
Czech beer…and they dug the Golden Gate bridge
But one fateful day her Mexican lover
was diagnosed with breast cancer
For her girlfriend, the end came soon
She died one afternoon
the following summer
Now, Julie’s all alone, what a bummer!
Fortunately Julie found true love again
with a Chinese woman she met at a market in the rain
They would spend many a day listening to Jazz
would hold hands on cable cars and snog at “Alcatraz”
For a year Julie’s life was crappy
But now, yet again she’s happy
living in ‘Frisco
Going to gay discos…with her gal

Face the Facts

Standard

missworld2011

Venezuela has won “Miss World” more times than any other nation
Yet another fascinating snippet of information
The F.A Cup has only once left England
When Cardiff beat Arsenal in “27”
Queen Victoria was quoted as saying
There’s no such thing as lesbians
As wonderful as these facts are, all the same
Life is more than just a “Trivial Pursuit” game!

The 16th

Standard

paris

Paris’s 16th Arrondissement
is expensive-but no disappointment
Yes, the 16th Arrondissement is simply amazing
Amidst the grim reality of London’s East End, I find myself craving…
this corner of France’s capital…par excellence!
The allure of this fine district’s not lost its significance…on me
From “Roland Garros” in Avenue “Gordon Bennet”
to “Fondation Le Corbusier”- who could forget…The 16th Arrondissement
and what about Le Musee Paul Belmondo
The Bois Du Boulogne, best enjoyed walking slow
Back home in Tower Hamlets, things seem bleak
If I could, I would go to Paris next week
and check out the 16th Arrondissement again
A change of scenery is a great way to relieve the pain…
felt inside this hollow shell
Sometimes the East End feels like Hell
I know where I’d love to be right now
find the money to return there somehow
The appeal of the 16th Arrondissement…I’m already captivated
If I could never go there again, I’d be totally devestated
But that’s unlikely, I have to say
Safe in the knowledge I’ll find my way…
back there someday
The 16th Arrondissement
is expensive, but no disappointment
In fact, it’s quite a revelation
I’d go as far as to say, a sensation
The 16th Arrondissement
The 16th Arrondissement
If you’re looking for a source of inspiration
This corner of Paris in France’s fine nation
The 16th Arrondissement
The 16th Arrondissement…

The King of Romance

Standard

ballroom

The King of Romance
Didn’t need a second chance
The King of Romance
He asked her to dance…with him
He knew all the moves, Boy he was good
and he knew just how to orchestrate the mood
He gave her chocolates and flowers
The King of Romance…charm is his power
The King of Romance doesn’t need to hide
The King of Romance appeals to her better side
The King of Romance swept her off her feet
Now they’re happily married-her life is complete!

Saxony’s Jewel

Standard

gohlis

From the classical attraction of the Bach museum
to the splendidly named locomotive stadium
Leipzig has much to offer the tourist
The museum of fine arts is hard to resist
Or if you’re in need of retail therapy
head to Madler passage…then a coffee
The Grassi museum complex
is the place to head for next
Then you can unwind in “Chaplin’s” bar
where your Euros will take you far
Rising above a canopy of trees
The Rosenthal Tower aims to please
Leipzig is lovely
The heartbeat of Saxony
and the jewel in its crown
The Old Stock Exchange – The Museum Of Egyptology
Lovely Leipzig…The heartbeat of Saxony
and the jewel in its crown
I’m sure a glass of ”Gose” beer
is reason enough for cheer
Leipzig is lovely
The heartbeat of Saxony
and the jewel in its crown
A visit to the Gohlis Palace
Is a chance you simply cannot miss
Leipzig is lovely
The heartbeat of Saxony
and the jewel in its crown…
