GUEST,John from Elsie`s Band Have you written a song recently? (65* d) RE: Have you written a song recently? 15 Apr 08


Bert, nice one.
This is not recent but one of many. Obviously using "Ranzo" as the theme.

Have you ever seen a wild goose sailing over the ocean?
Ranzo, Ranzo, whey hey.
Its just like a pretty girl when she gets the notion.
Ranzo, Ranzo, whey hey.

Young rambler home from three years a-sailing.
Ranzo .............
He spied his true love in despair and crying.
Ranzo .................

"How goes my love these three years through?".
Ranzo ..........
She said "None the better for the seeing of you".
Ranzo ..........

"For three long years I`ve been here a-waiting".
Ranzo ...........
"While you`ve been out upon the seas a-straying".
Ranzo ............

"And who should say these false things of me?"
Ranzo ...........
"Some sailors who with you did go to sea"
Ranzo ...............

"They speak in envy of our true hearts".
Ranzo .............
"And would see us cruelly torn apart".
Ranzo .............

"If I have strayed just one time only".
Ranzo ...............
"May God dispatch me and destroy my body".
Ranzo ..............

She saw salt tears in his eyes a-welling.
Ranzo ...........
She knew it was the truth that he was a-telling.
Ranzo ...............

And now they lives their lives together.
Ranzo ...............
And they will thrive, come fine or stormy weather.
Ranzo ................
