Live Performance Clips of Original Songs
LITTLE PLASTIC PART
This is a 'true' story.
I was cleaning, vacuuming the room. A carpet corner caught in the vacuum: burning rubber, a cracking sound, the moter faltered. Investigation found I'd broken something fragile and shining:
some Little Plastic Part.
W.C. Fields said 'The more I get to know people, the more I like my dog.' I introduce this song as 'Dyslexic Theology'.
I wanna love like God Loves,
with universal grace.
Lick the child, lick the old child,
lick everybody's face.
BETTY BOOP & BUDDHA
Another 'true' story.
Providence has brought two souls together. For karma, it was certainly a coup. He fell in love the moment that he met her so Buddha started dating Betty Boop...
MY MOTHER'S WORLD
As my brother and sister and I cleared out the house my parents built together to prepare it for sale, the Methodist hymn 'This Is My Father's World' kept turning in my head - and finally turned into this song.
...My Mother's World is on a shelf; Ceramic cardinals, photos of ourselves, a Reader's Digest of our lives book-end to end. My Mother's World is alive.
SHE'LL BE COMING 'ROUND THE MOUNTAIN
Pete Seeger's Birthday (One year anniversary of Petes' passing.) The audience - any age - never fails to jump in enthusiastically on this great Americana song.
