I Am Aleena

 I Am Aleena

 

Hear my voice I am the advocate of the poor

I sing for freedom I sing against war

Mother Africa she will rise as before

Good times are near knocking on the door

 

I am Aleena from the Uganda wild

I am Aleena an African child

I fight for all yearning to be free

I am Aleena the champion of liberty

 

My hands are busy planting the seeds

We must work hard to meet our needs

I shall not go down without a fight

We are the generation to make it right

 

I am Aleena from the Uganda wild

I am Aleena an African child

I fight for all yearning to be free

I am Aleena the champion of liberty

 

I want you to sing this song with me

I want you to walk by my side

I want you to sing this song with me

Africa is our mother say it with pride

 

We shall build temples for the God of Love

He will answer with blessing from above

The Almighty will smile and turn the page

We are walking to a blessed age

 

I am Aleena from the Uganda wild

I am Aleena an African child

I fight for all yearning to be free

I am Aleena the champion of liberty 


I Am Aleena

Colors

Colors

 

By John Kaniecki

 

Blue

Blue is the coldness of snow

The curiosity for secrets we do not know

How high is the sky?

How deep is the sea?

Look intensely into my eye

Blue is the color you shall see

 

Red

Red is the pains of sacrifice

The summation of suffering’s price

A crown of thorns upon His head

Red is the blood freely shed

Look into my heart

Red shall never part

Until I am dead

Red

 

White

White is purity

Holiness and security

White is absolute

White is truth

 

Black

Black is the color of imagination

The whispering sentiment of salvation

A nestled womb warm and secure

A vacuum of emptiness pure

Black is all that and something more

 

Yellow

Yellow is the newness born

A child who has yet to mourn

Yellow is laughter full of glee

The hope of a better eternity

Yellow

 

Gray

Gray is a cloudy day

A thought I can never say

The forgetting of how I walk my way

Gray

 

Green

Green is the happiness of the queen

The mysteries of nature never seen

Green is the cleanest clean

Green is everything in-between

Green

Abraham Raised The Knife

 Abraham Raised The Knife

 

Your feeling blue cause thing ain’t working out

Wondering if God loves you there’s plenty of doubt

Let me tell you plainly let me make you aware

We have a cross to bear and a message to share

 

I gotta tell you something about life

Abraham raised the knife

To kill the only child of his wife

Don’t you know that Abraham raised the knife?

 

God is good and God is great and God He’s never late

But human beings well we never want to wait

I guarantee when all that remains is your final prayer

God Almighty will loose the chains and fill you with care

 

I gotta tell you something about life

Abraham raised the knife

To kill the only child of his wife

Don’t you know that Abraham raised the knife?

 

Trust in Him when all seems lost

Trust in Him don’t you count the cost

Give Him the praise He’s faithful and true

Give Him the praise He really loves you

 

Precious child awaiting you is a priceless reward

When things get wild hold on trust in the Lord

Angels are watching and the Good Shepherd near

So be brave and bold do as your told without fear

 

I gotta tell you something about life

Abraham raised the knife

To kill the only child of his wife

Don’t you know that Abraham raised the knife?

Dementia Blues

 Dementia Blues

 

She promised forever only to forget

Today is the day that we first met

Take me home down by the Greens

It’s in Grenada that she means

 

Dementia blues I forgot all the words

Dementia blues I can’t play the chords

Dementia blues my love is still real

Dementia blues it hurts when I feel

 

Sometimes angry then weeping tears

Taking trips into her former years

I’m not a child she boldly proclaims

Always calling me by different names

 

Dementia blues I forgot all the words

Dementia blues I can’t play the chords

Dementia blues my love is still real

Dementia blues it hurts when I feel

 

The stores all know her up and down Grove Street

They’ll bring her inside and give her a treat

I’ll get a call waking me from a morning rest

What once was a pleasure is an endless test

 

It’s what they call by the long goodbye

Halfway in the grave I see her lie

After such a troubled life you have to ask ‘Why?’

But God in his kindness never does reply

 

Dementia blues I forgot all the words

Dementia blues I can’t play the chords

Dementia blues my love is still real

Dementia blues it hurts when I feel

 

And you just don’t want to let go

Late at night in fright tears flow

What I loved is already gone

Still to the memories you cling on

 

Dementia blues I forgot all the words

Dementia blues I can’t play the chords

Dementia blues my love is still real

Dementia blues it hurts when I feel

Lolly and the Nun

 Lolly and the Nun

 

Friday night begun

Lolly was lookin'

For some fun

Some fine lovin'

To be done

Then there she stood

Looking oh so good

In black and white

What a delight

 

Hey baby, came the jingle jangle

Care to take a little tangle

 

She turned

She burned

The old withered white-haired nun

Son

She yelled

I am married to the Lord

Chastity is my reward

I am dedicated

To serving the least

Besides she stated

I get it from the priest

Sit Down Rosa

 Today is Rosa Park’s birthdy!

Sit Down Rosa

 

By John Kaniecki

 

Sit down Rosa

Sit down Rosa Parks

Your example still sparks

Feeds a relentless fire

Of people who desire

To be free

 

Sit down Rosa

Sit down my dear

We must act without fear

For actions are heard

Better than many a word

A whole generation the whole world through

Are sitting down with you

A Hand To Hold

 

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on here. It’s been a long time since I wrote some song lyrics. This gem came around while visiting my wife Sylvia in the nursing home. She suffers from dementia.

 

It is my plan to publish another book of song lyrics to follow up the smashing success of “Without The Music.” I have been thinking of an appropriate name. Why don’t you suggest a title for my next book of song lyrics in the comments? 


A Hand To Hold

 

Sylvia sits waiting in her chair

And God is still despite prayer

Yesterday gone tomorrow unsure

Somehow I thought there’d be more

 

I’ve got a hand to hold

Fire burns in the cold

A story to be told

I’ve got a hand to hold

 

Old and gray the hours wasting away

Crosses are cruel so they say

But I step out of the flow of time

To jot down this humble rhyme

 

I’ve got a hand to hold

Fire burns in the cold

A story to be told

I’ve got a hand to hold

 

Sometimes Sylvia remembers me

Mostly I’m a mystery

We’re lost in space where are all the stars?

In a band playing guitars

 

I’ve got a hand to hold

Fire burns in the cold

A story to be told

I’ve got a hand to hold

 

In a world of greed we need to comprehend

That love is the only thing that has no end

Sylvia’s hand in mine she holds on tight

Love, friend, companion my sweetest delight

 

A sad face stings deep inside my heart

Our vows to death do us part

True love it either dies or grows

So the river gently flows

 

I’ve got a hand to hold

Fire burns in the cold

A story to be told

I’ve got a hand to hold
