Not a Wordle

It is going to be a crazy day as first Fandango hands me a picture that speaks for itself and now Yves is giving us a Bonus Wordle that is not a Wordle.  What to do, well she says that we can “find a poem or song you love and use as many words as possibly can from it.”  Making sure that is nothing like the original, now that is clear as mud.  I have this Barry Manilow song stuck in my head now, so I will see what I can make from it.  45 years ago, Barry had a #1 hit with ‘I Write The Songs’, but he didn’t write that song.  It was written by Bruce Johnston, who is best known for being a member of the Beach Boys and actually The Captain & Tennille were the first artists to record this song.

Bruce Johnston comes off as being a bit of an egomaniac with his lyrics, as he insists that he was the one who wrote the first song.  This song takes the listener back to the beginning of music history and it talks about putting lyrics together with melodies to make music.  Now that music has been created, the whole world is able to sing and maybe some of these will be about songs of love and other special things, or they could be sad and make the young girls cry.  I think Bruce Johnston is telling everyone that he is a muse and that he is capable of providing inspiration, because his home lies deep within you and he has a place in your soul and he can I look out through your eyes, which makes him feel young again even though he is older than dirt.  He is able to provide music that will make you dance, and this gives you spirit to take a chance.  He also wrote some rock ‘n’ roll, so you can move along with some music that fills your heart, which he indicates is a real fine place to start.  Music is to be shared and when it’s from me it’s for you, or if it’s from you, it’s for me and that is what creates a worldwide symphony.

I’ve been alive forever
And I wrote the very first song
I put the words and the melodies together
I am music and I write the songs

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

My home lies deep within you
And I’ve got my own place in your soul
Now, when I look out through your eyes
I’m young again, even though I’m very old

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

Oh my music makes you dance
And gives you spirit to take a chance
And I wrote some rock ‘n’ roll so you can move
Music fills your heart
Well, that’s a real fine place to start
It’s from me it’s for you
It’s from you, it’s for me
It’s a worldwide symphony

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

I write the songs that make the whole world sing
I write the songs of love and special things
I write the songs that make the young girls cry
I write the songs, I write the songs

I am music (music) and I write the songs

    1. Barry Manilow did not want to record this song, but Clive Davis talked him into it because he said the song was perfect for him., but I think you were trying to say that Barry has a big nose.
