Description
This is a song I wrote back in my early MJ days. I took it down a few years ago and am now reposting a remixed version of that original from 2005.
Hat tip to Van the Man and Sir Paul for the chorus/inspiration.

This one's for you babe...

I play guitar and sing the vocals. The strings, horns, and
chimes are played via Microsynth software.. Bass is
modified loops. Drums are loops.

Lyrics
**OK babe, this is for you.**

Amarillo, Cousin Suz,
Where we first began.
Just a boy, who was I?
And yet you took my hand.

Refrain:
I didn't know what love was.
But I knew I loved you.
And this man is still learning
Just what you mean to me
And how to let you know
That you will always be...my--

Chorus:
Sha-la-la-la-la-la brown eyed girl
Sha-la-la-la-la-la my love,
Sha-la-la-la-la-la brown eyed girl
My love.

Three children, gifts from God,
Now a mom and dad.
Watching you love those girls
I saw just what I had.

--Refrain--
--Chorus--

Tir na nOg, Santa Cruz,
Our road leads on and on.
Back again where we began
Still singing our love song.

--Refrain--
--Chorus--

Sincere
Nice one, Jack. The sincerity shines though. Good to hear a song about a positive relationship. It is easier to write "she done him wrong" lyrics :-) Take care, Peter.

Glad you like the positive song, although the "she done him wrong" ones are fun too.

Thanks, Michael. The song came together well. I wanted it to be a complete song. I don't know that it is, but I'm satisfied with the result. And, as you probably know, I'm the lucky one.

Awwww......
You're a lucky man, Jack. This kind of inspiration is priceless and speaks volumes about your lovely wife... and about you, as well.

Young Love is one thing... Lasting Love is an entirely different matter. ;)

Nice remixing job.

Remis series...
Hi Vic... I'm almost at the end of the remixes. I'm hoping to marshal my concentration and, hopefully, some inspiration to work on a song sketch you sent well over a year ago. Cross your fingers and stay tuned...
Thanks,

Well,
Barb's a looker; I'd be inspired to write a hymn to her myself ;-)
The way that 'sha-la-la-la' chorus flirts -just enough- with bubblegum is magic. The strings are essential.
Very fine, Jack! I hope you and Barb (and all the others) are well, and that the season brings all blessings to you.

Much love,

MoM
