I really want to impress you with my intellect
My conversational gambits
My stunning verbal prowess
With my articulation
Inspire adulation
Of my sure elocution, nothing less

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers he
Gave me the verbal artfulness to draw you close to me

A stumbling tongue is useless
To win a balking beau
A wavering admiration cannot be captured so
I’ll practice perfect diction
Inspired by the conviction
-That nimble tongues can make affection grow

Seven silver swans went sailing silently to sea
Silken sultry words will send you sailing straight to me

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck
if a wood chuck could chuck wood
He couldn’t chuck as much as this one could
to capture the attention of you

There is no inspiration
For agile tongue and wit
In awkward intonation or stutters on the lip
I’ll stake my reputation
On rich enunciation
Clear speaking lets you catch my cunning quip

She is selling seashells on the seashore near the sea
A graceful twist of words will draw you mesmerized to me

I’ve been writing and performing songs at conventions since 1995. Through The Door is a collection of some of the most popular songs, inspired by authors (like Lois McMaster Bujold) TV (Star Trek, Game of Thrones), gaming, and general silly things like nursery rhymes and my take on the world. I hope you enjoy listening to them as much as I enjoyed writing them. ... more
