Song Man

by Rachael Heffernan, 2004 SongMan.mp3 Here’s a story about man who was lost in song Tall as the sky, never, ever shy and he smiled about everything Song Man, don’t you ever leave me Song Man, sing those songs honey Song Man, sing the blues, jazz, pop, punk hymns, carols, rap and rock He sang bass to soprano to guitars and the piano from the ground to the silky sky and he promised me that he’ll always be right there with me by my side sing high to low, wide to slim tall to short – everybody – no-one could top him he was mine, I was his he was the best in the song biz Another quick sketch recording of a song, this time by my daughter Rachael.
