Description
I came up with the idea of this after I bought myself a replacement Electric guitar (Les Paul copy, Ok I know,I know, but at my age I don't know how long I'll be here, so I'm not buying expensive)... anyway my old guitar wouldn't stay in tune all through a song, so I converted it into a lap Steel and after not playing steel for about 40 yrs ( I never was brilliant), here is my little effort( and it still kept going out of tune the little b****), with a song with a light theme about keeping the Earth fresh and clean.

Lyrics
A Beautiful World.

Let me tell you how it all can be,
If just we treat it all respectfully,
Purity, peace and joy for everyone.
White beaches and clean fresh air,
Close your eyes and just pretend you’re there,
Then make it real and show the Earth you care,
Chorus
Beautiful, such a beautiful world, beautiful, such a beautiful world.

I’m gonna tell you how it all could be,
Forests tall and rivers runnin’ free,
Crystal rain, feedin’ all the flow’rs that grow,
This is how the Earth should be,
Treat it well and soon we’ll see,
Just how pure a mountain stream can be.
Rpeat Chorus. (or ad lib)

Let me tell you how it all could be,
If everybody on this Earth was free,
Peace and love, all around forever
I can tell you there’d be happiness
Lots of smiles and laughter too I’d guess,
Let me say, this is how it should be,
Repeat Chorus (ad lib)

Everybody has a right to sing,
Let them know about the love they bring,
Everybody, has a part to play,
Show them all how it could be,
Open up their eyes so they can see,
Valleys green, waterfalls and mountains high-igh,
Repeat Chorus (ad lib.)

Let me tell you how it all can be,
If just we treat it all respectfully,
Purity, peace and joy for everyone.
Clean white beaches, and fresh air
Close your eyes and just pretend you’re there,
Then make it real and show the Earth you care, Yeah!
Let me tell ya’ how it all can be,
If we just treat it all respectfully,
This beautiful… beautiful World.

Maurice Vizard

Ha Ha
I just saw you were on line and I knew you'd be the first LOL. I'm pleased you like this Feter. As I said above, it's many many years since I played steel and I'd forgotten the tuning (had to go online to search), but it still kept going out of tune and I had to try correct with the steel bar., thanks a lot my friend cheers M

Love that
lap steel guitar sound...it just does something to me! This song totally puts a smile on my face, it's a very happy song. Very nice Moviz!!

I'm so pleased that you mentioned the steel. I was always a fan of Hawaiian steel as there's no other sound like it and though my skills are very minimal the sound still gives me a thrill. Thank you for listening.... most appreciated, regards M

You know Moviz
you really put a smile on my face the second I hear your truly festive sounds. You really seem to have the gift of making people feel they are on a cruise ship going to an island. But hearing different song you do, you can put people in various islands depending on your mood. I've said it before in a way. Your better than a doctor or drugs, just hear moviz, don't even have to spend all the dough to pay for a big ship, >>>>just listen to Moviz :)

It would be a beautiful world if we listened and enjoyed more of Moviz's wonderful fun

You have me smiling now. This is a happy tune but with such a profound message in the lyrics. Well sung, well played, and tied with a big beautiful bow in craftsmanship!

I sense you had a lot of fun recording this one!

Thanks Maurice,

Very kind
comments from a craftsman like yourself Doug.... pleased that it sounds so happy. Yes I had fun, but not a little frustration too with the lap steel de-tuning itself all the while.... and I sang it much higher than I normally would for the 'feel', which became a bit throat constricting LOL... but yes, I had fun, cheers M

A natural
A Natural
A Natural alright, just like a crooner at one of those late night luows on the beach at one of those posh Hawaiian hotels.
Your Nice lazy slide guitar really lends to the creation of those images. Also reminds me of Arthur Godfrey:

You could probably sell this tune to Jimmy Buffet.

Nice one Maurice.

Thanks Damien
for the really nice comment... glad you like the slide, though I really am a long time out of practice. Thank you too for the association with Arthur Godfrey, who I wasn't familiar with, but I understand what you mean and the link was perfect, as the song took me back many years, but I was still able to remember and sing along to the hawaiian words LOL " ...as the uma, uma, nuka, nuka, wa a wa a go swimmin' by". Spellings probably wrong but hey, regards M

Maurice, your songs are always so full of infectious, positive energy, and are such a joy to listen to...

Everybody has a right to sing, but I think in this life you have an *obligation* to sing. The world needs what you have to offer, Maurice.

Thanks for another gem.

A Beautiful World
The bottleneck guitars are an excellent instrumental choice for this lighthearted, uplifting piece of music.
Charming performance, makes me dreaming of relaxing, holidays, blue skies, white sand and a margarita on the ocean's shore :-) Though I know that the beauty you describe here is much more overall and all-embracing than my vacation-fancies ...

Your pop songs always give an impression of an easy listening group that play music between cabaret acts in restaurant/clubs. Still very enjoyable to listen and always puts a smile on my face.

Glad you liked this. I actually did the song quite a bit higher than I normally wood, so that I could get a different tone in my voice.... turned out a bit of a strain on the the vocal chords, but as you say, it matches the song, regards M

You know Maurice, you so often comment generously on my songs and that makes me feel very proud when I come and listen to YOUR music. This was just delightful--you really know how to create a mood and place with your charming piece here and you SOUND like you are living it out for us. Carefree and joyous--man you are just amazing. I wish there were more artists like you running about the globe right now--we need them. I wonder what other treasures I'll come across in your collection here. Bravo! Your #1 fan, Michael
