I kept these lyrics to myself, singing only to the radio when I was alone. You see, I know that I can't sing. I entered a school talent show when I was in sixth grade and my teacher took me aside afterwards and gently said "Beverly, I am sorry, but you hit every note off-key" and she was right, I couldn't carry a tune.
But that didn't stop me from composing new parodies, like the one I wrote a few years ago, about RV'ers heading back home after spending the winter in
Since then I am unstoppable, I write songs about everything and anything, most of them funny. Sometimes all it takes is a comment to inspire a song, or a saying on a t-shirt. I written songs for WWII Veterans, Birthdays, Anniversaries and even a song about Angels (one of the few serious songs I've written). I've even written a few about Parkinson's. I use karaoke versions for the music and copyright my lyrics.
They all have one thing in common, they are humorous. Since I cannot upload the songs by themselves to Facebook, Twitter or on here, I make music videos to go along with the new lyrics. I enjoy taking the silly and sometimes unflattering pictures that I use to illustrate the lyrics. Here are three of my songs about Parkinson's, have a laugh on me. Just click the > and it should play the video for you.
