what’s it all about alfie
is it just for the moment we live
what’s it all about
when you sort it out, alfie
are we meant to take more than we give
or are we meant to be kind?

and if, if only fools are kind, alfie
then i guess it is wise to be cruel
and if life belongs only to the strong, alfie
what will you lend on an old golden rule?

as sure as i believe there’s a heaven above
alfie, i know there’s something much more
something even non-believers can believe in

i believe in love, alfie
without true love we just exist, alfie
until you find the love you’ve missed
you’re nothing, alfie

if everyman

a time to reflect
resolutions to eject
choices to elect
expectations to reject

if i am in a land knowing nobody, i can be somebody
intoxicated with toddy and become bawdy lordy

if i had the means bursting at the seams, i’d do wonders it seems
but all that glitters and gleams gets blown to smithereens

if i had that cushy job, i wouldn’t have to mop and sob
hmm, i’d likely end up a slob, a snob or a glob

if i had more, i’d soar and won’t be sore
if i had that talent, i won’t be such a bore, my ego would roar

if i could erase my pain and shame, i’d gain in life game
if i had everything i wish, any excuse is lame, no cause to blame
instead temptations to tame, irk to flame and maim

if only i do away the crutches, i’d rid of my grudges
if i can get away with my fudges, can i live better with them smudges?

for romans 3:23 say all have fallen short of glory
but we can choose a better life story
or choose doomed gory
no matter how sorry
narrow is the way to divine storey
so choose right lorry
to transport back to Glory

ahh…but don’t be bitter
don’t quit..finish the job, God can’t use a quitter
philippians 1:6 promises life sweeter
cos’ our Creator
“..who began a good work in you,
will bring it to completion..” till He’s due

so boldly usher in the new year, keep the ball moving
fulfill your divine purpose, keep on trucking

meanwhile, if only i could be understood
i would not need to brood
the intensity of my humble intent and star
can only reach so far

a miff with if
only brings grief
transform conditional tiff
to unconditional in a jiff
that’s my resolution beef…

fiddler_poster_image312195333 ” if i were a rich man,
ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.
all day long i’d biddy biddy bum.

Lord who made the lion and the lamb,
You decreed i should be what i am.
would it spoil some vast eternal plan?
if i were a wealthy man.”
