Dean Martin has the tone I was working for.
Blue Moon: Singing is good for you
There are reasons singing is good for you.
I sing because it makes me feel good.
This is a strange story. I was in hospital.
An ultra-sound had been ordered.
(That’s all you need to know about that.)
I went into the ultra-sound singing Blue Moon.
Don’t ask me why.
Halfway thru the ultra-sound
I thought why am I doing this
so I ceased singing at such
a strange time.
And then a voice; from where
I couldn’t say; not above, so
it wasn’t God. (And I wasn’t
that far gone though I sure
could have been – long story.)
The voice said “Don’t stop;
we were enjoying that.” (Truth
being; so was I, both the effort and sound.)
So I went back to the hospital ward singing.
Now I read that singing
is good for the heart.
I’ll keep singing,
not the cure but a tool.
