JOHNNY

Johnny, the name says it all.
You made me fall in love, into your arms.
Johnny take me for this one night
And love will be our right,
Darkness turns into light.

Johnny, your bodyís soft and warm,
My senses are reborn, when will you hold me?
Johnny, I touch your fingertips,
Slide my arm around your hips,
Now kiss me.

Johnny the night will never end
My heart needs a friend and you are he, just you baby.
Johnny take me for this one night,
Love will be our right,
Darkness turns into light.

Johnny, your bodyís soft and warm,
My senses are reborn, when will you hold me?
Johnny, I touch your fingertips,
Slide my arm around your hips,
Now kiss me.

Mary Angela Bowie Barnett 1987

SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE STRANGERS

Iíve known happiness
And IĎve known sadness,
I met the Mona Lisa,
She spelt badness.

Some of my, some of my,
Some of my best friends are strangers

Iíve known joy and I
And Iíve known sorrow
Met a paper mache actor,
Wonít see him Ďtil tomorrow.

Some of my, some of my,
Some of my best friends are strangers

Iíve had ups
Iíve had downs
I am acquainted with some dealers
In a hundred towns.

Some of my, some of my,
Some of my best friends are strangers

Mary Angela Bowie Barnett 1975



FOR THE SAKE OF FAME

For the sake of fame,
Youíll do what you have to do.
For the sake of fame
Youíll have us all do it too.
Thereís a time and a heart for this.
Let my soul never miss,
A beat on this glorious stage of life.
I made my choices performing is my life.

(Rap Vocal Overlay X 4)

Oh but for the sake of fame
Iíve endured some tasteless shit.
For the sake of fame,
I will not continue to do it.
For the sake of fame,
Youíll do what you have to do.
For the sake of fame,
Youíll have us all do it too.

(Rap Vocal Overlay x 12)

For the sake of fame,
Iíve watched people gag and choke.
For the sake of fame,
Angst out quickly and have a stroke.
For the sake of fame,
Youíll do what you have to do.
For the sake of fame,
Youíll have us all do it too.

(Rap Vocal Overlay X 4)

SUCCESS

Success is the Bavarian undead,
Late night places and words unsaid.

Success is sitting hunched in a chair
Pointed head and eyes that stare.
Nursing his drink, he profiles the scene.
Asking what does this all mean?

Man cannot live or love
If he questions God above.
This is success
Go Now

Success is tired,
Takes a bow
Fame bowed
And said real slow
Infiltrate reality,
Offer it duality
He assumes a stance
In which time and success must balance

Mary-Angela Bowie Barnett 1976
 

 The World Is Changing

Welcome to the Real World!
We're here to learn. Get far, love me
Set my life in your dreams,
By Iago's filthy schemes,
Instruments for corporate means,
The World, Yeah, the World needs changing!

Face of the Planet, eased by scalpel,
Is not beautified, but mutillatto.
The World, Yeah, the World is Changing.

The BOMB.

Industry? A Mistake?
Eat more.
Get fatter,
Go on a diet.
Cut down trees,
Plant alfalfa,
Cows get fatter.
DonŐt eat meat,
Go on a diet.
Control heat.
Air Condition.
Too hot,
Too cold.
Don't walk,
Jog a lot.
Get Fat.
Get Thin.
Buy a car!
This car,
That car,
DonŐt walk,
Do jog.

The World, yeah, the World is changing.

Earthquakes? My Mistake. People's disaster.
A Mistake? So Sad. People Hurt.
Oh Earthquake. Planet getting fatter.
EarthŐs disaster.
Planet Chunder.
Earth Belch, Earth Burp: Oh, Planet Chunder!

The World is Changing.

Africa, between Famine and Genocide.
Apartheid is Gone.
Money Reality is Chewed.
The Burden of Mandela, Steve Biko.
Don't hurt my hero.

The World Is Changing.

Asia shifts and shuffles, gambles for food.
Korea, China, Japan, the falling yen.
Classic Stoicism - Replace Monarchy's upheaval.

We're here to learn. Baby, it's changing.
Europe shifts from one desire to another.
Ice block thawed.
Walls torn down.
Tomorrow may be free.
Doesn't mean democracy.

The World, yeah, the World is changing.
Honey, itŐs changing.

American Apocalypse of street fighting.
Bloods have no place to play.
NASA, the Peace Corps, Stuff the War.
Explore, Burn your Bibles.

The World is Changing, Honey, It's Changing.
Girls, Sleeping Motherhood,
Women's Unrest,

Courting Love on a Sea of Discontent.

Baby, the World is Changing.
America, Sandwich of Indecision.
Canada's Calm and
Tango Passion of South America.
The Double Standard.
Tax Drugs. Get Real
We're here to learn.

The Rules are Changing.
Honey, the World is Changing.

Mary-Angela Bowie Barnett 1994
