(This was a submission from a close enough friend that I don’t need to check how long this took her to write. She is trusted. 4EVA.)

DEBORAH
Suggested song lyrics for Stevie Nicks, by a friend of mine

oh deborah
i still recall you
dancing on the shining ocean
like a cat
that took swim lessons

cat lady
dressed in velvet
cat lady
cat lady deborah

they tried to stick you in a tree
keep your heart from me
and the fireman he set you free
he set you free

oh deborah
(oooooh)
leap from the fridge so high
land on slippered feet

cat’s eyes
cat lady deborah
fly, fly away
like a cat

(This wasn’t so much of a request as it was a challenge in an IM conversation, and I could have done better if I spent maybe 7 minutes on it instead of 2)

LADY JENNY
Suggested song lyrics for Belle & Sebastian from yours truly

(Verse: at a rollicking clip)
Lady Jenny so delicately pretty
She plays bingo at her local church
On Tuesday evenings before she goes to sleep
The air inside her stagecoach makes you think of costa rica
And her eyes made out of gossamer
Looked through you and said

(chorus, cue horns and strings)
LADY JENNY PRETTY GIRL
PUT ON YOUR BOXING GLOVES AGAIN
AND LET’S GO OUT INTO THE PARK
LIKE WE DID IN 1910
WHERE ALL THE DOGS ARE BARKING LOUD
AND ALL THE PARASOLS ARE BROWN
AND RAINSTORMS COME AND RAINSTORMS GO
BUT YOU BESIDE ME IS ENOUGH TO TAKE
WITH ME…
HOME

(by request – “write a new Coldplay song”)

“Glimmer”

You look at me across the years
Just try and tell me to go away
I’ll stand by holding your hand
Your haaaand
Your hand
While you
Glimmer!

Glimmer! (repeat)

I know what you mean when you tell me to go
I see the truth and I want you to know
That I have always been here for you
For yooooouuuu
For you
Watching you
Glimmer!

Glimmer! (repeat)

I’ve been devoted to you since year 1
Anyone else who says they love you is an asshole
I win first prize for romantic love devotion
While you
While you
While you
Glimmer!!

GLIMMER!!!! (REPEAT)
