Sample "SING ME"  

The Story:   Our ages progress (if we are lucky).  We watch our favorite actors, musicians, sports athletes, friends, and family members dwindle.  One day it will be us.  As we think about our plans for the ending, what will we leave behind as our legacy?  How will we have touched others?   I thought about these questions as I penned Sing Me.  It contains pieces of history, memories, and what music means or brings to us (and to me).  "Sing me a song.  Sing me a song.  When I have to go away, just sing me a song."  Music is a big part of life.  My end-of-life instructions are to "sing me" out!   This song has an upbeat joyous rhythm in "retro-swing" style (crossing the feel of both Klezmer and Gospel.)   Hope you'll sing along...

CHORUS: ||: Sing me a song, sing me a song When I have to go away, just sing me a song :||

V1: My Daddy rocked me, rocked me, with his lullaby
My Momma sang so sweetly, just to hush my little cries
My Lover whispered, softly, rolling melodies
My Baby cooed along in time. Her heart beat strong with me!

CHORUS: ||: Sing me a song, sing me a song When I have to go away, just sing me a song :||

V2: Little comforts, bigger Hearts, hold me so tight
All the endings, all the starts, make things feel so right
A drug soothes pain, but singing floats the strain away
Every word, every note, every simple thing I wrote
All my nights, all my days, music smites the drain away,
Just sing, sing, sing, sing, sing me a song

CHORUS: ||: Sing me a song, sing me a song When I have to go away, just sing me a song :||

BRIDGE 1 Don’t you cry, just sing to me. When I leave, just sing to me.
If I die, just sing for me, 
Yes – sing sing sing me a song

CHORUS: ||: Sing me a song, sing me a song When I have to go away, just sing me a song :||

INTERLUDE: Sweet notes from your lovely throat - Just hum that melody
Just sing sing sing sing - loud and strong for me
Skylarks join your happy trill - Just chant that harmony
Just sing sing sing sing – sweet and low for me

 CHORUS: ||: Sing me a song, sing me a song When I have to go away, just sing me a song :||

 BRIDGE 2: Don’t you cry, just sing to me When I leave, just sing to me
Hold my hand till the ending comes, Your voice can strum till my soul succumbs,
Just sing, sing, sing, just sing, sing, sing, Yes – sing sing sing me a song.

 CHORUS: ||: Sing me a song, sing me a song When I have to go away, just sing me a song :||

OUTRO: When I have to go away, just sing……. SING….. SING…. SING me a song!
