Growing Younger

Growing Young imageIt feels so great when people you haven’t seen for a while greet you with,  “You look ten years younger!”  It’s been happening so much to me lately, I decided I actually am growing younger – which deserves to be sung about!

What are your thoughts about it? Do you think it’s possible, or am I deluding myself? Have you experienced growing younger? If so, we’d all like to read your comments! To get the discussion going, here’s a song …  I’ve still to record it, but there’s plenty of time –  I’ll still be singing it fifty years from now 🙂

Growing Young With You
© 2009 Radha Sahar

As the sun is setting, we talk about growing old
How people go quiet, they slow down
And set into a mould
But we are far from setting, our love is fresh & new
It’s summer. We have come in from the cold

I’m growing young with you – how wonderful!
No need to go the old way we’re expected to
I’m feeling young with you, so beautiful!
I’ll dance with you until our song is sung
I’ll still be young with you

Vast spaces open out in me, deeper every day
My body’s growing taller instead of shrinking away
A flood of life expanding. No winter dark or grey
The power of love reversing time a way

Every day is born anew, clear and sparkling bright
And every star in the sky shines for us tonight
Thankfulness has got me. This only came to be
Coz you are into being young with me

I’m growing young with you – how wonderful!
No need to go the old way we’re expected to
I feel so young with you and you’re so beautiful!
I’ll love you till our children’s children grow
And have children of their own
I’ll still be young with you

Until we turn at least a hundred and ten
And the cycle starts again
I’ll still be young with you

Baby Boomer Girl
© Radha Sahar Feb. 2009

Sixty years ago, burst into the world
Grew to be a sweet, compliant little girl
Seventeen years fitting in well, then
Woodstock shook me – had to rebel

Chorus
I say “No! I won’t sit down!
I say “Go to the edge of the world”
I say “No!” I go Boom! Boom! Boom!
I’m a baby boomer girl

Beardos, wierdos, chemical highs, then
Motherhood tamed me. Years flew by
Where did they go? Hello Gran! – Yes
A little bit’a mutton, but a whole lotta lamb!

Chorus

Women are mature, girls have fun
Women sit & walk, girls strut & run
Women analyse, girls laugh & play
I was a feminist so I can be a girl today

I’m a boom, I’m a chick. I’m a chicka chicka boom
I’m a boom, I’m a chick. I’m a boom boom      x3
BOOM! BOOM! BOOM!

Gonna Boom! Boom! Boom! on the radio
Take the world by storm on video
Gonna rage in a rock band, misbehave
Gonna dance to my coffin and sing in my grave!

I say “No! I won’t sit down!
I say “Go to the edge of the world”
I say “No!” I go Boom! Boom! Boom!
I’m a baby boomer girl
I’m a Boom! Boom! Boomer Girl!

Being and Being Bold

BabyBoomerGirlMugshot2
‘What are you doing?’ confronts you every time you tweet on Twitter.  Then, in Facebook – ‘What are you doing?’  You start yelling inside, “I’m just being – that’s what I’m doing! – What’s wrong with being?”

You’re just being. You’re being wonderful. You’re being happy. Maybe you’re being sixty, like me – sixty years bold. Like you, I’m just being me and life is wonder-full.

Life crescendos as the sixth decade opens. Being 50 was the best time in life – then. But being sixty is even better – life just keeps getting better!’  A little plot of earth apparent on the horizon just intensifies appreciation and delight in absolutely everything.

Give me a ‘B’  – and put it in front of the word ‘old’.

Give me an “R’ – and put it in front of the word ‘aging’.

There are a few global authorities on being bold. I’ve just decided to join them.  If it means I look like a fool, I’ll be honoured.   I hereby step up and take the official title of ‘ fool’ and ‘bard’ – the whole nine yards! Scroll and enjoy my song lyrics …  and please add your bit – it’s all about us all.  It’s now my solemn duty to make you smile – I take that seriously (and I’m allowed to be serious sometimes too). I’m not a comedian at all. I’m not even going to try. I’m simply going to be me – that should be enough – give me an ‘M’ and an ‘E’ and sit them happily side by side, content just being.

Hmmm – now put that ‘B’ that ‘R’, that ME” all together with a big, delighted whoop of an ‘OO’ in the middle…   and you have BOOMER. Have a boomer life, being you – ya hoo! – (and following this blog of course!!!!).  Hugs.

Free Anti-Wrinkle Treatment

Gravity

It’s time to ‘bah-humbug’ the traditional idea of aging.  The ultimate anti-wrinkle treatment is free!!!! With only a song-line knowledge of physics there’ll be no more ‘down hill’ for you – just the upward spiral.  You won’t care a hoot about those increasing creases.  After all, who needs creams and potions when you can laugh in the face of gravity?

Gravity
© Radha Sahar, February 2009

Good old Newton had a flash
Evolved the idea, gave it a bash
Wrote it on paper for all to see
And now we have the theory of gravity
What was firm is not so sound
What stayed up must come down
Look at great grandma and you will see
The long term effect of gravity

Gravity, gravity – It’s all happening to you & me
Everything’s falling down, you see, my fair lady!

What was tight is growing slack
Y’ want your youthful figure back
Hormones, botox and breast reduction
Face lift, tummy lift, liposuction
Work – meanwhile y’ can’t go wrong
Uplifting the lot in dance and song!
Forget the lines and sing with me
We’ll laugh in the face of gravity

Gravity, gravity – It’s all happening to you & me
Even your gynecology, my fair lady!

Now Newton’s in a grave situation
Physicists across the nation say
Our subatomic essence is totally free
Beyond the pull of gravity!

Quantum physics says that face
Consists of little – mainly space
Celebrate! It could be worse
Your essence is the universe!
So why not entertain this truth
And drink from the quantum fountain of youth?
Dance and sing triumphantly
And laugh in the face of gravity!

Gravity, gravity – don’t mean nothin’ essentially
Laugh and sing triumphantly, my fair lady!

Senior Moments?

Baby Boomer Girl 087 Dunno ’bout you, but remembering how much I forget things, I remembered to write a song about forgetting.  We don’t have ‘senior moments’ do we! – Nah!  It’s the world that’s the problem – too fast a pace.  With our social networks expanding to global proportions, how can we be expected to remember everyones’ name? – let alone where we put our glasses …

I Won’t Forget You
© Radha Sahar, September 2009

I forgot my list. I forgot my phone
So I can’t call & tell you I’ll be late comin’ home
I forgot and locked my keys in the car
I know I’m crazy, but there you are …

I forgot Mark’s birthday, forgot his wife’s name
I’ve known them for years – how could I? Shame!
I forgot my password – don’t have a clue
But I tell ya baby – I won’t forget you

You’re in my mind, you are all I see
You’re in my heart, you’re a part of me
You’re stored in my aura
I love ya through and through
I won’t forget you

I forgot the stove was still on high
The meal’s burnt – hope it’s not on fire!
I forgot the time. It worries me, true
But I tell ya baby – I won’t forget you

You forgot our anniversary – that’s hard to forget
My memory’s selective I suppose, and yet
I forgot to forgive you – when push comes to shove
I’ll forget I forgot, so don’t worry love

I forgot the shopping, honey, then at dinner
I forgot my resolve – let’s forget being thinner!
Let’s forget to remember all the things we have to do
As I show you baby how I won’t forget you

Empty Nest Blues

AFewLyricsReminiscing about when your babies flew the coop? Or are you in that empty nest right now?  You’re filling the gap with work? Keeping in touch, and in love?  Then take heart;  the broody moodiness can disappear in a fluffy puff of happiness – especially if you  know the right song to sing! Well here it is – I wrote it especially to help you through – or, if you’re already in your new stage, to bring back tender memories.   It’s called the …


Empty Nest Blues
© Radha Sahar, 2009

Seven thousand and seventy days …
( … and this is home for you – always)
You’ve flown the coop! I know you’re over the moon
You breeze on down the open road
My heart was glued to you y’ know
And now it’s come unstuck…hope I see y’ soon

Who’ s got the empty nest blues?
Emptyness blues
My chickadee! You’re gone! What will I do?
It’s all so quiet! So much space!
My heart is spillin’ all over the place
Confess I got the empty nest blues

I’ll get used to it, I guess
I miss the familiar noise and mess
I fluff the cushions, hoover, dust and clean
I’ve got big plans – lots to do
But all I think about is you
I’m a sentimental chook – y’ know what I mean

“This chicken’s crossing the road!” you laughed
As my heart quietly broke in half
I miss the chaos, but I tell ya I miss you more
Strange I’m smilin’ – don’t ask me why
I’m proud you’re ready.  I know you’ll fly!
I blessed you as I finally closed the door

Who’ s got the empty nest blues?
Emptiness blues
My chickadee! You’ve gone! What will I do?
Now don’t you worry – I’m not on the shelf
Got a brand new mission to find myself
You’re smilin’ and encouraging me to
Say goodbye to the empty nest blues!
