Description
Thought I'd re-post this song with a new mix on it giving it more space and clarity. I think this is one of my better efforts and I love the way my home made lap steel sounds here (must do another soon) in fact I think it helps tremendously here. Also I think this song is quite relevant at this time, with regards to it's environmental subject..... only Hula Skirts allowed here no synthetics please LOL. I put it under 'Hawaiian' genre as opposed to the 'Pop' of the last version, because that's how it comes across.... hope you like the new mix

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.

Wondelful...
...Tsze-kung said, “Suppose the case of a man extensively conferring benefits on the people, and able to assist all, what would you say of him? Might he be called perfectly virtuous?” The Master said, “Why speak only of virtue in connection with him? Must he not have the qualities of a sage? Even Yao and Shun were still solicitous about this.
“Now the man of perfect virtue, wishing to be established himself, seeks also to establish others; wishing to be enlarged himself, he seeks also to enlarge others.
“To be able to judge of others by what is nigh in ourselves; this may be called the art of virtue.”

Maurice, this is simply you at your best. It took me a moment to catch on to what you meant by "no synthetics" - very funny! Catchy, snappy tune - great harmonies on your vocals. And the lap steel sounds wonderful - is that you playing it on your lap, or is it your keyboard?

Really enjoyed this tune, Maurice, and I am quite pleased I got the chance to hear it - thanks!

Yes Sigmund
No plastic Hula Skirts please... only pure grass LOL. Thank you for your nice words... really pleased you like it. The lap steel guitar is an old solid copy guitar that once belonged to my Nephew and it would never stay in tune for the length of a song. I converted it for this song and retuned it the Hawaiian way. I'm actually playing it as it tries to slide off my lap LOL.... glad the sound came out alright though as I haven't played lap for about 30-40 years, regards M

M!
I really like this song M! I think that your vocals are mixed a little dryer than the last couple songs; I like that because I can hear how your voice actually sounds a bit better. This song makes me want to kick back on a beach with a fruit drink and enjoy a beautiful sunset.

The mix and music on this one is really good. Good job M!

ABW
it sure does sound like island music to me :-) You sing like the old school pros Maurice. Not too old mind you ;-) but with a flair all your own and a nod to the classic balladeers. Is that you playing the lap steel guitar parts? I think we need to hear more of that soon.

And your next CD
comes out when?
Maurice, you keep creating these gems. You have got this styled absolutely nailed to perfection vocally, instrumentally, lyrically, and in the supporting orchestration. That's a home made steely? Amazing sound...Those guitar licks that peek out here and there are tasty, too. I thoroughly enjoyed this number. Your are beyond compare. You seem to be having such fun.

Ha Ha, I wish!
This was actually a little high for me to sing and I strained a bit, but sometimes it can add to the feel.... and yes it was an old solid guitar, which I converted (Just a case of raising the strings at the nut and bridge on metal and re-tuning. I do agree it gives a lovely warm sound. Always loved Hawaiian music. Thanks Paul for the kind words, regards M

Vacation in headphones
Maurice, I close my eyes and am transported to a warm, sunny beach. You made a lap steel guitar? How? This is quite refreshing, after all the snow we've been getting over here.

Moviz said 2763 days ago (February 28th, 2010)
Glad you
enjoyed the trip Roxie, thanks for listening..... that's why I brought out this song because it's been so cold here too; coldest winter in quite a long time.
Making a lap is simple as I explained in my reply to Paul above. Just a piece of metal ( copper/or steel), with ridges sawn in to hold the strings parallel to the bridge. Put a piece there as well if needed( if the bridge is hard you won't need it there) so that the strings will ring and not deaden. I had to use a hollow metal tube as the actual steel, because I can't find my original bullet nosed steel. You'll find tunings on line, cheers M
