Ain’t It Strange

They said to have fun...So I 
 Wrote this to the melody of the song, People Are Strange  written by Jim Morrison

Ain't It Strange

Words are like magic when you're a writer
Free verse is easy when you're alone
Rhyming looks easy when you're a poet
Prose can even be renowned

Ain’t it strange
How words appear out of our pain
Ain’t it strange
Whether their classy or lame
Ain’t it strange
Ain’t it strange
Ain’t it strange

Words are like magic when you're a writer
Free verse is easy when you're alone
Rhyming looks easy when you're a poet

Ain’t it strange
How words appear out of our pain
Ain’t it strange
Whether their classy or lame
Ain’t it strange
Ain’t it strange
Ain’t it strange

Ain’t it strange
How words appear out of our pain
Ain’t it strange
Whether their classy or lame
Ain’t it strange
Ain’t it strange
Ain’t it strange

  4. Lovely Helena!
    Do you know that Jim Morrison is buried in the Cemetiere Pere Lachaise in Paris? His grave is monitored by the gendarmes because fans desecrate it so often. Other famous graves in the cemetary make it quite a tourist attraction.
