Sing Me An Old Style Song

Sing Me an Old Style Song

Sing me an old style song,
With pretty flowing phrases;
A story of love gone wrong,
In other times, in other places.

No trumpets blare, just sweet trombones,
A crooner, smooth tongued and mellow.
Hurting, aching, quiet, for me alone.
Sing me an old style song.

Let bottled tears stain my cheeks,
As your freckled nose appears before me.
For I cannot cry to beats and bangs,
Please sing me an old style melody.

That I may cry and cleanse my heart;
Empty and ready for a new filled start.

I am not even musical and I adore this poem. This stanza really hit me. "No trumpets blare, just sweet trombones, A crooner, smooth tongued and mellow. Hurting, aching, quiet, for me alone. Sing me an old style song." It makes me ache for the music of the 40's and 50's.

This is a terrific song-poem / poem-song. Have you put it to music yet? It's really quite good! ~ Gershon
