“In a World Far Away” (lyrics to a rock song I wrote in 1969: by John Thomas / John David Thomas)

Can you hear me now??

In a world far away,

I spend the day

Just thinking of

How you and I

Used to talk about love…

How with us it would stay…

 

I was such a fool…

Gave you all that I had…

But oh, how sad!!

The day I found you

In the arms of

Somebody new…

What a time you both had!!

 

Girl, heed my word, word, word…

He doesn’t love you

He’s just “drawing cards”

Not making a play

If Hearts aren’t trump, trump, trump…

He’ll throw you away!

 

Fold up while you can…

There’s still time to make up…

This breaking up

Is eating my soul…

I’m so down

I’ve got nowhere to go…

I’m in need of your love!

 

(Repeat first verse, then out….)

“The Fly” (poem written by John Thomas / John David Thomas in 1968, in “PENPOINTS”)

He knows not why

He is a fly,

But by and by

Begins to try

To understand

Just what he be…

A grain of sand

Cast in a sea

Of numbers and

Eternity dwarfs

Little fly who

By and by

Begins to try

To understand

Just what he be…

And what he be??

Be what he try,

He’s partly “me”

And partly “I”

 

THE END

Original poetry of John David Thomas (a.k.a. John Thomas)

                         “Haiku” (of John David Thomas/John Thomas)

I fell into a

Hole, only to discover

The hole was my life

A pencil idles

As does the mind which pretends

To be deep in thought

I wait for the night

When the sun disappears, and

Shatters into tears

              “I Just Want a Girl to Love”

Long blond hair and deep blue eyes

(I just want a girl to love)

Loneliness and deep blue skies

(I just want a girl to love)

What’s her name if she keeps her cool??

(I just want a girl to love)

What’s her name if she breaks “the rule”??

(I just want a girl to love)

Every day, I sit in seat J-12

But 30 feet away

Is where my mind is really at,

And where it’s gonna stay

Straight ahead I’m supposed to look–

Give my devout attention to a pile of books

But the sense in that I’ll never see,

As long as that girl is staring at me…

(repeat first stanza)
