There’s No Fool like an Old Fool

 

When he looks in the mirror what does he see?

Someone much younger obviously.

He’s forgotten his age and departed youth

And sees no reason to face the truth.

So much better to delude oneself

And foster the image he has of himself.

Flattered by the ladies’ smiles;

Quite forgetting about a young girl’s wiles;

He thinks they like him and they care,

For his judgement has been so impaired.

They are after his money but he cannot see;

He really thinks they enjoy his company.

It is so easy to be so cruel

Because there’s no fool like an old fool.

My Little Man

 

My little man
I’m so sorry we had to part;
To say goodbye
Before we could even start.
The fault was mine:
You are innocent in this crime.
I had no choice
But to cut short your time.
Forgive me please
And absolve me from this sin.
I won’t forget you
And what we shared within.

Not Wishing to Offend

 

Your politeness will be the death of you;
You would rather suffer than offend.
The idea of being considered rude
Is something you cannot comprehend.
Sometimes the word ‘no’
You find impossible to utter,
And your courteous excuses
Are lost in an indistinct mutter.
Thus, you find yourself
In undesirable situations;
Your chronic gentility
Triggering further complications.
You’d rather die than cause upset
Or anger inadvertently.
Your fear of offending is greater
Than your concern for your safety.
To make your life more pleasurable
May I recommend:
Put your own happiness first
Instead of not wishing to offend.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists are using my song lyrics to help promote mental awareness. Yay, fame at last!  :D

 

BTW this song is not about me!

 

Manic Depressive

 

She’s feeling so excited;
Everything’s a whizz.
Ideas racing in her mind
With such effervescent fizz.
She’s spending lots of money
And not sleeping anymore.
She’s being rather reckless and
Has no time for crashing bores.
She’s lost her inhibitions and
Enjoys some risky sex.
She’ll go off with perfect strangers
While contemplating who is next.
Everybody loves her,
She’s so happy and such fun.
She’s talking very quickly and
Knows she’ll never come undone.
For she feels so important;
She has a mission to complete.
These may be delusions of grandeur
But right now she can’t be beat.

 

When she’s up she’s up and
When she’s down she’s down.
She’s a manic depressive,
Interchanging smiles and frowns.
She’s a manic depressive,
Her mood swings are quite renowned.

 

Now she’s feeling worthless;
Crying for no reason.
Everything seems difficult,
Living’s out of season.
She’s growing very restless
And agitated too.
She has trouble going to sleep at night,
Wakes before the morning dew.
She is utterly exhausted
And cannot leave her bed.
Everything’s an effort,
Simple tasks are now a dread.
Her appetite has disappeared,
She’s starting to lose weight.
She’s lacking in self-confidence,
She’s in such a hopeless state.
Avoiding contact with all people,
She wants to be alone.
Her feeling of inadequacy
Has made her suicide prone.

 

When she’s up she’s up and
When she’s down she’s down.
She’s a manic depressive,
Interchanging smiles and frowns.
She’s a manic depressive,
Her mood swings are quite renowned.

 

She’s trying to stay stable
But it isn’t always easy.
She wants her friends to think of her
As forever bright and breezy.
She used to self-medicate
With lots of drink and drugs;
But her problems only escalated,
With her needing loving hugs.
Now she tries to exercise
And do things she enjoys.
She avoids all stressful matters
And things she knows annoys.
Her life is given meaning
But never gets too busy.
She makes sure she relaxes
So she doesn’t get into a tizzy.
She ought to see a doctor
To prescribe something to sedate;
But if she’s really honest,
She loves her manic state.

 

When she’s up she’s up and
When she’s down she’s down.
She’s a manic depressive,
Interchanging smiles and frowns.
She’s a manic depressive,
Her mood swings are quite renowned.

Nice input Amanda, thanks.  I would like to hear the song with it's music in place as well, the words are great and so it needs a good tune.

I just wrote my first song lyrics, which is very similar to poetry so I thought I would post it here:

 

The Secret’s Out

Whispered voices.
Hidden smiles.
Feigning innocence.
Using wiles.
The game is over.
Play has stopped.
The act of pretence
Can now be dropped.

The secret’s out. There is no doubt.
It’s all anyone can talk about.
The secret’s out. Without a doubt,
There is so much to think about.

Polite laughing.
Discreet brushes.
Knowing looks.
Sparing blushes.
The end’s been reached.
The fun complete.
No longer needed
Is such deceit.

The secret’s out. There is no doubt.
It’s all anyone can talk about.
The secret’s out. Without a doubt,
There is so much to think about.

The truth’s revealed and everyone knows.
Everything is now exposed.
The secret’s out and beyond a doubt
You couldn’t be happier, you want to shout
At last the world is free to see
Something that was just meant to be.

The secret’s out. There is no doubt.
It’s all anyone can talk about.
The secret’s out. Without a doubt,
There is so much to think about.

My subject is indeed dangerous!  ;-)  These Don Juan characters have been the subject of poetry for centuries!

A new one by me:

 

Cold-Hearted Lothario

 

He’s a cold-hearted lothario

But the women don’t seem to care.

They all want to be with him,

All hoping to ensnare

This sweet-talking charmer

Who’s had numerous affairs.

He doesn’t give a jot about them;

They’re just notches on his belt;

It is only for amusement

He makes a woman melt.

He always likes a challenge,

The thrill of the chase,

But once the conquest has been made

His interest is soon replaced.

So ladies please be wary

Of this charming cad;

He will make you feel so special

But afterwards so sad.
