I Like My Sugar Sweet

 
Posted by c emerson's Alter Ego:



Hear me now?  I tell ya, a cat's meow will follow a cow's moo; you know I can recite them all; if ya just tell me where it hurts you, honey, I'll tell you who to call. 

Well, I'm just like all the rest, I like my sugar sweet.          But did you ever feel already buried deep, you know like six feet under the screams, where nobody ever hears a thing?

Come on, now, just let your colors burst, just make 'em go oh, oh, oh.

Well, Mr. Jinx and Miss Lucy, they jumped in the lake. I'm not that eager to make that same mistake. Everyone tells me people are crazy and times are strange. So I'll stay locked in tight, just out of range. I used to care a whole lot more, but things have changed.

Yah, but my Mama told me when I was young, we were all born superstars. Yah, she told me that as she rolled my hair and put my lipstick on in the glass of her boudoir. 

No no no - in the pitch dark I can't just go walkin' in your landscape. Broken branches trip me when you speak. No no don't reach out. Just 'cause you feel it doesn't mean it's there.

No one cares, com'n, that boom boom boom, it's whipping my hair. To hell with the stares. The sweat is now dripping all over my face; and I'm the only one dancin' all over this place.

I'm in pieces, baby fix me. Just shake me 'til you wake me from this bad dream. I'm like baby, baby, baby no.

Com'n, Baby, let me put the fever on you, get you boilin' past one hundred and two. Uh-uhh. Ooh.  Fever!  Fever in the morning, fever all through the night.                                  Fever!

Okay, I got the fever. Yah, I got the fever off a man I knew. I feel it comin' on - comin' on - I know - I know - I know.  

Swear, I just heard that song on the radio.

Okay, okay, so where is he, I mean Quinn the Eskimo?  We all want to run to him.

  4. Wow! Sure does make a difference to hear the lyrics with the beat, including tone and accents on certain words, and to see the artist and how they choose to perform the song with lighting, set design, direction, etc. versus to just read the words, the text! A lot goes into the creation of art. Kudos to those creative beings out there.

  6. The End campaign is beginning to cook -- go to Indiegogo site here to learn more and lend a helping hand. Hmm... didn't the Doors do a song called The End many many years ago?

    This is the end, beautiful friend
    This is the end, my only friend, the end
    Of our elaborate plans, the end
    Of everything that stands, the end
    No safety or surprise, the end
    I'll never look into your eyes again
    Can you picture what will be
    So limitless and free
    Desperately in need of some stranger's hand
    In a desperate land

  8. Wow! What a difference it makes when you add in the tone, accent, performance, set design, editing, direction, wardrobe, etc. vs just the written word. Kudos to all those creative beings out there!

  9. From guerrilla filmmaking at 7 to winning the Austin Film Festival Young Filmmakers award at the Austin Film Festival at age 10 to making them laugh while crying throughout middle and high school along w scaring the hell out of them w his ninth grade film this is what Rowland does, thinks and dreams. If you can please help him continue by contributing no matter how little (or how much) to his production budget for The End his post apocalyptic love story. The students have to do this by the book. No guerrilla shots, using casting directors, producers, makeup artists. Art direction, cinematographers etc. the costs add up. Not as inexpensive as doing all those rolls on your own. Hes great. Please help a budding auteur who happens to be my son
