Hollaback Girl: Drum Cover


Drum Cover First take, first time playing


The Whole Time

Right before my eyes it became so clear

Everything I was looking for was right here

We been alone so so many times before

Why I never seen it, I’m not really sure

It might be the moonlight setting a mood

Or just maybe I never truly looked at you

For whatever reason I don’t know why

But your just what I’ve been looking for
The whole Time

Don’t Have To Say A Word

My baby don’t say not a thing

I know what she’s thinking that’s for sure

My baby don’t say anything 

She don’t even have to say a word

The first time she looked at me

And I was looking at her 

She smiled, batted her eyes

Then glanced down at the floor

I knew she was still thinking of me 

As she looked at the ground 

Then she  looked back up at me 

She didn’t have to make a sound

I don’t recall what happened 

After all of this 

I can only flash forward to

Us embracing and that first kiss.

My baby don’t say not a thing

I know what she’s thinking that’s for sure

My baby don’t say anything 

She don’t even have to say a word

Book Coming out Soon

I want to thank each and everyone of you. You have been there to support me. I really do appreciate each and everyone of you and you have made a huge impact in my writing. I read your post and I get intimidated, you are all so well written. For that reason it has stepped up my own writing as well, sometimes I feel like a fraud. Posting my poems that have little structure and definitely don’t follow any formats. Yet you all have embraced me and serous my writing in 3 years has developed more than I ever could have imagined. I have my first publication on Amazon’s KDP, and this one will be as well. I was reading both of them and the difference is night and day. Once again from the bottom of my heart I thank you for all your support, you guys have meant more to me than you’ll ever know.

Miserably Happy

I guess you can say I had a breakthrough of sorts today
I’m closer to figuring out what the hell is wrong with me
I can’t seem to do anything the way your supposed to
But the worst best thing is I can’t seem to stay away from you

Your So very bad for me
I’m not blind I can see
Together we’re a tragedy
You make me so miserably happy

A healthy relationship this can’t be
Because we make each other so
Miserably Happy

You wish I was dead and yet you can’t live without me
I guess that’s part of being so miserably Happy

I guess I will never ever, I just don’t understand
I listened and all I hear is what women want in a man
From what I see, all they want is really what they can’t have.

Women say they want some who will always be there
A man that treats them well and shows them that he cares
And they also want passion and someone to pull their hair

I’ve tried cause I’m that one there all saying there looking for
I’m everything that they say they want and so much more
I treat them better then they have been treated before

So from experience, If you give them what they want
Their happy for a minute and then the next their gone
So if they are happy and can’t complain then they move on

I guess that seems crazy to myself and other men like me
Women can’t deny it, it happens over and over constantly
I can’t rationalize it because it’s pure utter insanity

I not ever gonna try to understand
I won’t ever get it I’m a man
I just embrace the crazy that’s my plan
I’ll never change who I am
Anymore I don’t try to understand

Merry Christmas

It’s Christmas Time and there is a bit of frost in the air
Everyone’s out buying gifts feeling that Christmas cheer
The music playing as they dance singing so happily
As they put ornaments and twinkle light on the Christmas tree.
Get ready for that special night, smell of baking fills the air
Been waiting for so long for that magical day to get here
The only thing that matters, only one thing reigns true
It’s nothing if you don’t care about others and they for you
So remember all those who you care about and mean so much
To all my friends and family I wish you a Merry Merry Christmas.

Christmas Songs Through My Eyes

Everyone has their very own opinion and this is mine. Here is a look at Songs From my point of view. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Its Christmas Time and Time for my Christmas Review. I know it’s late I usually post this right after Thanksgiving. But this year I haven’t been feeling Christmas, I’ll put on my smile and give you the best Christmas list I’ve ever posted

Ariana Grande has taken over as the queen of Christmas with 3 appearances on my list. One with the queen she dethroned Mariah Carey.

This is New and Past Christmas Queens singing with Jennifer Hudson ( one of my favorites from Idol)

Brittany always has to be in the top three, I love this song.

New to the list, but not new to my absolute favorites of all times Carley Rea Jepsen. I love this song as much as I do her and this song is halairious.

This song from Becky G and Lindsey Sterling is becoming a Christmas classic. It’s part of my tradition.

Lucy Hale has a definite classic with this song. Been on my list for so many years.

Fifth Harmony sing not just like Mariah but a Mariah song. And the do it justice for sure.

Justin Bieber has been on my list for awhile now and I think it’s permanent on my list.

Christina has such a voice that I did like this song sung by a male voice. I said did..

Kelly and Ariana go together so well that I think this song will be on the list for some time to come.

Dan & Shay make their debut on the list as well, good song.

Leona still on the list with her retro classic Christmas song.

Ava Max if you follow my blog you know I love Ava Max and had to have her on my list.

Cascada took this song from Wham for me and my list. Such a good version

Miley Cyrus blew me away with this version. First time on my list.

Luther is a classic and the longest running song on my list.

I added Amy Grant back to the list, I like her version of this song.

Michael and Idina do this song so well together. Took over this song on my list

Alisa Cara put out a Christmas Album this year and had to put this song on the list. I also like her version of I want a hippopotamus for Christmas.

Gwen And Blake are on the list for I think 3 years now. Gwen is the only artist to respond to my Christmas music list. She asked what I exactly I liked about the song. Just to get a message from Gwen left me speechless yet had to give an answer, that would satisfy a iconic musician like her. I think I did ok, and their still on my list today.

I’m really liking on Karmen’s version of this song. Its a little more up tempo, and a little different.

Colbie has a spot on the list with her Christmas original song that starts in her toes and she crinkle’s her nose you know the song goes. This one’s just as bubbly cute.

Mattie and Tae arey girls and happy to have them on the list with their Christmas original song.

Thank you for visiting my page hope you liked these special Christmas songs to me. Let me know if you liked my list and your favorite Christmas songs. A little Christmas gift for those who don’t know there is a hyper-lynk on the word favorite, it will take you to this playlist with bouns song on YouTube. Thank you so much I appreciate each and everyone of you.

Merry Christmas

Still In Love

I don’t want someone to just pass the time with.
That doesn’t seem like enough

I want someone, when she enters a room
My eyes still light up

I want someone who’s my lover, partner and best friend.
And still be that way for all time

She’ll still make me wait as she gets ready and when she’s done
She’ll still blow my mind

I want someone who’s heart still melts from my love poem or from
Receiving flowers on a Tuesday

Someone who will offer to split the last piece of cheesecake
The little things we’ll still appreciate

I want someone who we can still make each other laugh and
Enjoy each other’s company

Someone who makes me feel and say with each and every passing day
I still love her and she still loves me

By Gary Agurries


How do you tell someone
You’ve been looking for them
Your whole life

How do you tell them
That it just feels right,
You know, Way deep down inside

How do I let her know
I’ll treat her like she should be
And never let her go

I have so much, I want to say
All the words get in the way
Of letting her know

She’s every I’ve ever wanted her to be
And for some reason she gets me
All I can do is just give it a try I’ll show her every day of this life

I want to say her and I just belong
Give it a try come-on
Girl you and I do belong
I never felt so strong
As I do Knowing that we belong
I belong here with you
And you belong with me
I’ll spend my life making you happy
Just you wait and see I’m not wrong
That girl we do belong
