A song for the boss barrista in my morning coffee shop I call "ginge" real name Lucy
An attractive 23 year old with auburn hair but I call her ginge because she greets me with comments like "look what the cat dragged in" calling me "her little dumpling" "tubs" and other insulting nicknames! She makes a great medium italian black coffee and our banter makes the few minutes we talk a day great fun. I almost enjoy paying, well almost grin

Somehow the conversation got round to me writing songs and she bet me that I couldn't write one for her. So this is it, I did the BIAB bit before my medical incident and the vocals last night and shall play it to her today. Altho' I will sadly have a decaf coffee *eugh* but needs must now cry

See you next time

I hate saying goodbye to you
see you next time is all I can say
cos the next time you're in my mind
is very next second of the day

those few moments that I have with you are enjoyable in the extreme
I pinch myself just to make sure that I'm not in a dream

I hate saying goodbye to you
you know the route to my heart
all it takes is your winning smile
and that's a very good start

SOLO

those few moments I have with you are enjoyable in the extreme
I pinch myself just to make sure that I'm not in a dream

I hate saying goodbye to you
see you next time is all I can say
cos the next time you're in my mind
is very next second of the day

those few moments I have with you are enjoyable to the extreme
I pinch myself just to make sure that I'm not, I'm not, I'm not in a dream
see you next time is all I can say

Hey Alyn.

Good to see you back in the list.

Loved the song and I'm sure I'd love "Ginge" too.

Sounds like Alyn guesting with the Stan Kenton band. Always original, always very listenable.

Stay safe, ROG.

Good tune Alyn. If someone can get you to write and sing a song, I take that as a hopeful sign you are feeling a bit better.

There's a lot to like about this song and I think you've done a particular good job with the lyrics.

Enjoyed my listen.

Charlie

"those few moments I have with you are enjoyable in the extreme"

I think that may be how we all think of you, Alyn!!!
(love that line)

This made me think of Gilbert O'Sullivan - which I haven't done in eons...

There is much joy in this.

ROG,
Thanks for the welcome
ginge is a wonderful pain in the butt, but I don't think I could take her for too long, perfect in her job.

Hmmm Stan Kenton orchestra, Thank you

All the best

Alyn

Thanks Charlie, I sat in front of the computer like a lump of lard and forced myself to sing and boy did I feel better afterwards.

The lyrics were hard as I wanted to say thank you but the looks from both, when my son met her, gave me a theme to work on LOL

comparison. Very enjoyable song.
Thanks for the entertaining background story.

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Thanks for your fertile mind that can
turn your barista encounter into such
an engaging tune. That is a gift I wish
I had.

Janice and I much enjoyed this latest
chapter in your cool output.

Thanks!

Rob and Anne Marie,

She said that she was born in the wrong era for music and for once was lost for words and I got a free coffee laugh

Phenome is a good soundfont player, the presets are worthwhile and is a whole new way of using sf2's. I love free stuff blush

So glad you enjoyed the listen

Janice and Bud,

I have always written stuff about my life, dunno why but each song usually has a memory attached. I have never been able to write "normal songs" blush
I tried, in the practice runs, to sing like Janice, ie in a laid back Bing Crosby vibe but that didn't work grin

thanks for listening

Alyn

Sergio,

Glad you enjoyed the song, I wondered today if you would like the coffee as well.
I told her you said hullo and she was, for once, lost for words. Thank you laugh
