SMILE All I ask of you Under this blue sky Is to look up and let me see you smile It’s not just for me Or the good of all mankind But for you…most of all…let me see you smile

Go down to the river, listen to her song Hear that melody, flowing on and on Gaze into the water, where all beauty lies Smile at your reflection, In the rivers eyes

All I ask of you Is a simple task, take a chance And let me see you smile

Go down to the river, listen to her song Hear that melody, flowing on and on Gaze into the water, where all beauty lies Smile at your reflection, In the rivers eyes

All I ask of you Before you say goodbye Look at me… let me see your smile

Good Morning! Anybody know what day it is? Is it safe to come out yet?

This lockdown going on far too long I need to get outside and play I’m like Jack Nicholson in the Shining
Can’t take it here for one more day

I got my wife and kids under house arrest And all they do is watch TV
I see REDRUM written all upon my walls I think they want to murder me…murder me

I put on my mask, I put on my gloves And a condom from head to toe Go to the bathroom, lock the door Climb out my window

Then I dance down the street and cry out loud I’m free at last, I’m free! ‘Till a siren and some flashing lights Pull right up next to me…next to me… cop says, “boy what the hell you think you’re doin?” Hey! I’m talkin to you!

Cop jumps out, points his gun Straight into my face He says “ boy you know you’re breaking the law There’s a curfew ‘round this place! What the hell are you wearing? Where did you get that from?”
I told him, I bought it on the internet It’s a Corona Condom…yes it is…extra large… don’t leave home without it.

My corona condom, I wear it everywhere I go Corona condom, covers me from head to toe It’s my saving grace, might even save the human race Corona condom…Corona condom…

My corona condom, I wear it everywhere I go Corona condom, covers me from head to toe It’s my saving grace, might even save the human race Corona condom…Corona condom… don’t leave home without it

I Still Hear Him Singing His Song

I still hear him singing his song When the wind blows late at night I see him moving to the music When I close my eyes real tight

He says ‘Wake up and dance, wake up and sing For you never know what tomorrow may bring Wake up and live, wake up and love Give thanks and praise to the heaven’s above

I can see him in the moonlight Always shining down on me
I see him in his children’s smile I hear him in this melody

He says ‘Wake up and dance, wake up and sing For you never know what tomorrow may bring Wake up and laugh, wake up and play Cherish the moments we share everyday

I hear him laughing when the rain falls He says, “It lifts my spirit high” I feel him every time the sun shines And know his love will never die

He says ‘Wake up and dance, wake up and sing For you never know what tomorrow may bring Wake up and live, wake up and love Give thanks and praise to the heaven’s above

I still hear him singing his song

Love Thy Neighbor!!!

Mama, why they shoot them down? Just because their skin is brown Tell me why they curse them so? Everywhere these people go Father, why they hang them high? Say that they deserve to die Tell me why they act so cruel? Don’t they know the golden rule?

Do unto your brother man As you would have them do to you Heed to these words that command Love thy neighbor through and through

Mama, why they cut them down? Kick them when they’re on the ground Tell me where’s the victory? When you have to kill somebody

Do unto your brother man As you would have them do to you Heed to the words that command To love thy neighbor through and through

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth Has never worked before Ancient minds in modern times Always leads to war

Do unto your brother man As you would have them do to you Heed to the words that command To love thy neighbor through and through

Who's Gonna Take Care of Lucille?

Work of Art

In cart Not available Out of stock

Uniquely styled blues, rock, pop, reggae, good-feeling-music.

This song is a tribute to the "KING of THE BLUES", B.B. King and his beloved guitar, Lucille. I'm grateful to have met BB a few times over the years and talk with him about her. BB and Lucille...a beautiful love story!

Art Ski: Guitars, Bass, Drums, Vox Ed Ignatz Stein: Keyboards Sybil Scoby: Backing Vox

Who’s Gonna Take Care of Lucille? You won’t hear her crying On this dark blue day in May All you can hear is silence Now that her man has gone away As the sun is sinking With all the sorrow that we feel There’s just one thing that’s on my mind Tell me who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?

Who’s going to hold her in their arms now? Who in this world will make her sing? Who’s gonna love her, the way that he loved her? She was queen, he was King As the stars are shining On a Mississippi field There’s just one thing I just don’t understand Tell me who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?

Now her highway days are over She’s far away from the bright spotlight She sits alone, in a room filled with blues Stays home all day and all night And as the moon is rising This life we live seems so surreal Now there’s just one thing, that’s still on my mind Tell me who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?

As the sky is crying Tell me how can this wound ever heal? Through this pain I still keep wondering Wondering who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?
