Moo says the cow

August 10, 2011 Leave a comment

Moo says the cow
and that’s the way I’m feeling now.
Too mixed up to be verbal
even lack the words to burble.
 
So I put what I feel into one single word
Listen to me, I hope it will be heard.

Moo, moo moo,
do you feel it, too?
Moo, moo moo,
That’s my point of view.

I don’t care if it’s neutral
I hope it is mutual
I’m asking how is it for you?

Watch The Guitar Hero

Baby baby, baby, baby: where did our week go? 
Baby baby, baby, baby: and all the promises and things to be done? 

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday, Friday:
I hope it has been fun.

We keep moving, moving in circles
old mother time drags us along.

Faster, faster, faster, faster:
her arm is strong

I hope this influences you

Keep influencing me in your influential way
’cause and influencer’s influence is so important.
Keep influencing me in your influential way
’cause and influencer’s influence is influential.

Dream About A Strange Bus

This dream keeps hovering over my mind. Strange how some dreams do.

I’m standing at the bus stop with a co-worker. We are heading for work, we are late, the bus is late, too. I don’t know where we are and I have no clear plan how we get to work. The bus is just a vague idea. It will take us SOMEwhere – and relatively fast. If you want to get SOMEwhere to take the bus seems like a good idea. My co-worker isn’t trustworthy in this. He knows even less than I do.

Finally the bus arrives. I take my grandfather’s pocket watch out of my breast pocket. I have it on a golden watch chain. I know it’s late, I don’t want to check the time, the gesture is my way to show my disapproval to the bus driver.

We enter the bus, I go first and notice that from inside the bus has no windows, not even a windshield – just solid walls with white wallpaper. I look at the driver and say: “Oh, that’s difficult driving, isn’t it?” He answers: “I was late and this was the only bus left at the depot. It’s difficult to drive this way and I drag behind schedule more and more. What kind of ticket may I give you?” – I don’t know. I have no idea where my workplace is – I just hope to find it as the bus passes familiar territory. As I can’t name a destination I opt for the cheapest ticket but pay with a big banknote. Handing me my change the driver asks: “Your pal gets 2,40, too?” I say “I didn’t want 2,40 – I wanted 1,30!” I’m getting angry and excited. He says “It’s ok, it’s ok. I gave you a 2,40 ticket for 1,30.” I check my change and find he gave me back much more than I gave him. But all in old German Mark coins. Suddenly the silver coins look very valuable. I like this bus driver.

He says: “Your pal seems a bit disorientated. Please help him with the money.” I turn to my co-worker. He is just standing there, purse in his hand and understands nothing. I open that purse and try to find the change – but there are only colored triangles in there. Like pieces of a pie chart.

The bus driver gets very excited and says these are not colorful pieces of a pie chart – but windows. He says all his windows had turned to powder because he had not cared for them properly – so he wants to buy the pie chart windows from my co-worker’s purse. They start to bargain over the price while the bus still stands at the stop and it’s getting later and later.

I turn away and find a table with an old tablecloth and a vase of flowers on it. There is a couch so I sit down. Will we ever find our workplace?

Talking Drums

Yesterday I was talking about things expressed between the lines of speech. Only a moderate volume of speech today 😉

Vacation Time, Vacation Time

Vacation time, vacation time,
it’ finally vacation time!
Sweet vacation yours and mine,
thank God it is vacation time.

Vacation time, vacation time,
best time of year: vacation time.
No work, no stress we all do pine
for the sweet vacation time.

Vacation time: best time of year.
Vacation time: it’s finally here.

And off we go into the sun
no phones we’re out of reach.
All things else are said and done
bye, bye we’re on the beach!

It’s vacation time – vacation time.

Vacation time, vacation time,
it’s finally vacation time.
Everybody is feeling fine

Vacation time, vacation time,
It’ finally vacation time!
Sweet vacation yours and mine,
thank God it is vacation time.

Vacation time: best time of year.
Vacation time: it’s finally here.

Enjoying life a different way,
nature, hills or sea.
Vacation time is here to stay
that’s the way to be.

It’s vacation time – vacation time.

Vacation time, vacation time,
It’ finally vacation time!
Sweet vacation yours and mine,
thank God it is vacation time.

Vacation time, vacation time,
best time of year: vacation time.
everybody read the sign:
vacation time! Vacation time!.

Vacation time: best time of year.
Vacation time: it’s finally here.

Supermen

Every boy wants to be a superman
at least as great as dad.
Supermen always do the best they can
anything else is bad.

Supermen are always strong
they carry the world on their shoulder.
Supermen are never wrong
that’s a problem when supermen get older.

Every boy wants to be a superman
at least as great as dad.
supermen are lonely men
to be a superman is sad.
