Song Of Will

When I travel in a train
I just give my ears to listen engine’s pain.
But I hear no pain except engine pulling the train in the joy, has peacock in the rain.

When engine’s wheels are rolling on a parallel line, which goes up a hill, then again I intended to listen the pain, as train went towards the up stood line.

Again I heard no pain instead; I heard a song of will, a song of pull.
Again and again I heard song of will, which helped engine to pull.

It sang this little song I think I can, I think I can.

Then at no minute the trained crossed the steep peak and reached sleek.
Even we all should sing song of will then we can stand in zenith still.

Sing A Song Of Stephen Foster's

Sing a song of Stephen Foster's a song from long ago
Sing 'Jeanie with the light brown hair' or even 'Old black Joe'
Or sing my 'Old Kentucky home' for that would please me so
Or 'old folks at home' or 'Oh Susanna' to the strains of the banjo.

I hate to hurt your feelings sir but to you I must say no
For I've never heard of this Foster and his songs I do not know
It's the first that I've heard tell of him, never heard of him before
Is he some old ballad monger dead one hundred years or more? .

So you've never heard of Stephen Foster then it only goes to show
That you are not a true folk singer when his songs you do not know
He was America's greatest song writer and his is an undying fame
And I find it hard to believe that you've not heard of his name.

So you can't sing a song of Stephen Foster's, then I'll go elsewhere for beer
For to hear one of his oft sung songs the reason I come here
The drinks are dearer here tonight just to cover your fee
And you can't even sing a Stephen Foster song for me.

The Great Stephen Foster

He was a remarkable wordsmith the best of the U S of A
And his songs for all races and ages are the living legends of today
As a song writer his name is immortal a doyen of the wordsmith trade
But like us all he too had his vices and for glory in sorrow he paid.

Camptown Races and Oh Susannah and Jeanie With The Light Brown Hair
From the pen of the great Stephen Foster his was a talent that was rare
But like us all he had his vices and in a toilet block he died
From what was diagnosed as alcoholic poisoning some might say a form of suicide.

Old Black Joe and My Old Kentucky Home his songs will live forever more
They are sung in clubs and in bar-rooms far beyond America's shore
The greatest song-writer of a great Nation yet he died in abject poverty
That's life as some people might tell you though life seldom makes sense to me.

He was such a talented person yet with life he struggled to cope
He made and he spent a vast fortune and in life he could not see hope
Yet his life was very successful since his gift to humanity
Are songs that will live on forever his words outlive human mortality

Arguably his Nation's greatest song-writer his songs to millions have brought joy
I heard them sung around the fire place by old men when I was a boy
If you have not heard of Stephen Foster little of song-writers you know
Perhaps the best of a great Nation he died many decades ago.

And no-one here has seen the light,
And no-one cares enough to fight,
Coz the world is now a dark despair,
And no-one’s brave enough to care.

But the single song always remained,
That single song has stayed the same,
The woman sung it in the street,
Back when drums sound out the beat.

And the single song that helps them cope,
The song that brings belief in hope.
A song of feelings hard to say,
A song that’s always been that way.

Hallelujah sing the words,
Hallelujah reads the verse.
The single song that will remain,
The single song that stays the same.
