'Jocelyne Shine'

Jocelyne…….. Sunshine
Jocelyne….. Moonshine
Jocelyne….. Rainshine
Oh……. …… Jocelyne Shine

Your lovely smile brightens all our days
We wonder what you’d like to say
Questions about you fill my head
What’s your secret, your content?

Jocelyne…

You’re so happy and it shows
Though wheelchair bound you’re aglow
You’ve found life’s pearl on your beach
We watch and listen so you can teach.

Jocelyne…

You need us and we need you
To do those daily things we do
If we complain our lives are tragic
Just being with you we’ll see the magic,
We’ll see the magic in our lives.

Jocelyne…

Our time was over suddenly
Not because of you or me
I think of you every now and then
Your strength, your beauty…. your humbleness.

Jocelyne…

Oh… Oh… Jocelyne shine
Oh…Oh.. Jocelyne shine

Oh…Oh... J o c e l y n e….. SHINE !!!

[Lyrics]


'Let Me Serve & Show Me The Way'

Well as I was out walking just the other day
I spoke to the Lord, I had to prey,
I felt kind of lost knowing what to say
I needed some help to find my way.

I’m kinda feeling like my work’s stagnatin’
Sometimes my clients just ain’t participating,
I’m doin’ the same ole’ thing every day
I wanna be excited let creativity play.

Well I wanna be writing jingles and songs
To feel like there’s something moving me along,
I love to write the words, I need melodies
And maybe sell my songs to Mr. Sony…. Wow!!!

There’s gotta be a bigger reason why I am here
I’m walking in the park and just breathing your air,
I know you’ve got big plans for me I wanna just ‘be’
Oblige me Lord and make it plain to see.

Let me serve and show me the way…
Let me serve and show me the way…
Let me serve and show me the way…
Let me serve and show me the way…

I feel so good to be spreadin’ the joy
I’ve searched for this since I was a little boy,
My dream at ten was to join the ‘Fab Four’
I tell you man, I wanna run through that door.

I want the world to see work don’t have to be shallow
Just ‘do what you love and the money will follow’,
I’m hearin’ that it ain’t no rocket science
So I prey to the Lord, and sing these lines.


Let me serve and show me the way…
Let me serve and show me the way…
Let me serve and show me the way…
Let me serve and show me the way…

Let me serve and show me the way…
Let me serve and show me the way…
Let me serve and show me the way…
Let me serve……….. and show me the….


Way… (so show me the…..)
Way… (so show me the…)
Way…

Other voice “Lighten up man… let’s see if I can help you out a little”

Well it’s already happenin’ can’t you see
When you do what you do baby your’re workin’ for me.
Just- keep writing new songs for the world to hear
You’ll inspire them all, while you make their path clear.

Your words will touch the hearts of all who hear them
Your music lifts the spirits of everyone
They’ll wanna stay close to you to pick up the buzz
Have faith in me, you’ll see, we’ll make a big fuss!
You just keep on singing....

Let me serve….

[Lyrics]


'My Old Man & Me'

Fish n’chips and mushy peas
Bread and butter cup of tea
Fine day out by the sea
Just my ole’ man and me.

As we sit in the chippy
Pleased as punch and so jolly
Playful glances spark with glee
Just my ole’ man and me.

Years ago, we were family
Mum, sis, you and me
Trouble hit, she said the love was gone
I watched her toss you out of our home…

(But now it's....) Fish n’chips….

I missed you terribly
A boy lost in the world
I needed you
Did you need me to?

I’m the Dad now he’s the lad
‘Cause his mind’s not what he had
Better catch up while we can
Just my ole’ man and me.

I was taught, to forget you
And love another Dad
Whoever you are, I never left you
Although I was mad.

Now I push you in your ‘chair
Down the street and up the stairs
Still life’s at the gallery
Just my ole’ man and me.

At forty I forgave you
Beat a path right to your door
As a man I claimed you
From the lost and found store.

We’re together finally
Now the world has ‘let us be’
Dad and me for all to see
Just my ole man and me

Just my ole man and me
Just my… ole’... man…. and…. me!!!

Frog In Love

FROG IN LOVE

(frog...)
I’m a frog in love
I’m a frog in love
I now know that it’s real
When duck hugs me tight
Though I was up all night
I feel like I could squeal.

I don’t know why I doubted
Our love could really be
Piglet doesn’t understand
Love has to be free
Now that we’re together
I’ll be alone no more
Duck and I an item
To-gether…. for ever-more.

(duck...)
HE’S A FROG IN LOVE
HE’S A FROG IN LOVE
HE NOW KNOWS THAT IT’S REAL.
WHEN HE HUGS ME TIGHT
THOUGH HE WAS UP ALL NIGHT
IT MAKES ME WANNA SQUEAL!!!

HE DIDN’T HAVE TO JUMP SO HIGH
TOO HAVE ME REALLY SEE
I’D NOTICED HIM BEFORE
HE LOOKED SO CUTE TO ME
I’M SO GLAD HE FANCIED ME
ENOUGH TO MAKE ME SEE
WE HAD TO BE TOGETHER
FOREVER, HIM AND ME !
