The tune and title came out of a dream, obliging me to get up and put them on tape or risk

going back to sleep and forgetting.  The completed lyric followed within the next hour or so.

LOOK AT ME (C)2016


Look at me happy

Look at me sad

Look at me laughing

Look at me mad


Look at me watching

Whenever we part

And you'll find me waiting

Right there in your heart


The first time I saw you

And love came my way

I wanted to see you

With each passing day

The first time our eyes met

From that quick nervous peek

We stared at each other

Too tongue-tied to speak


Look at me happy

Look at me sad

Look at me laughing

Look at me glad


Look at me always

In that same loving way

And we'll look together

Forever and a day

Repeat chorus

Repeat 3 and 4.

Harry - just as long as you enjoyed it, I'm happy.
Colin - your comment about "1975" had me checking the
hits of that year on Youtube. Hadn't realised the sheer
range of songs produced and can only say thanks for
the "retro regard"! Not too sure about Eurovision though.
JC - your priceless pastiches of your words set to popular
songs are unique. Keep them coming to lighten our days.

Songwriting really is your forte, MC. Doubly impressive to come up with melodies as well as the lyric. The best I manage, as you know, is to hijack somebody else's song and bastardise it.

Ah! M.C.,
If only I knew anything (anything!) about music.

I`m jealous!
