Text and music by Rick McVicar

Music makes me smile 

After I’ve been sad awhile.

 I have no need to frown 

When sound reverberates off my brow. 

I see colors of orange, red and brown 

When the pulsating beat comes around. 

The sound of triumph appears 

Filling the cavities in my ears. 

I tap my fingers on my chair 

Forgetting all of my cares. 

The melody progresses nicely along 

As I think of new words to a song. 

Perhaps I will write my own lyric 

Without any anxiety or fear 

Of making a mistake or two. 

I just don’t want to sing the blues.
