    ME OH MY

    there I go again losing my head
    you in the lead and me being led
    playing little-girl-lost
    led by the nose by you
    to a life you have laid for two

    me oh my you chose little old me
    to shower with love and sympathy
    to have and to hold
    for as long as YOU decide
    a fall follows pride

    lost girls can find their way back
    now boy it’s high time for pay-back
    I’m getting even
    I’m tired of being your plaything
    seeing everything your way

    she put him though it
    how could she do it
    he won’t forget it
    she’ll live to regret it

    I’m flying solo

    so here am I fallen from grace
    and tables for two
    with a smile on my face
    I raise my glass high
    drink to the plans you’ll lay
    and the role I’ll never play

    THE WALTZ

    strike up the band let it play
    love songs to haunt me and I will stay
    but when it comes to a waltz
    both words and music will ring false

    cos you waltzed in
    and spun my world
    around in dizzy dance
    I swirled
    but suddenly
    you waltzed away from me

    those violins they must go
    so no careless hand with a bow
    may play on the srings of my heart
    and make me remember how lovers part

    how you waltzed in
    and spun my world
    around in dizzy dance
    I swirled
    but suddenly
    you waltzed away from me

    strike up the band let it play
    whatever it chooses and I’ll say
    play me a waltz if you will
    I’ll sit here and listen waiting until

    my love returns
    to take my world
    and spin it ‘round
    in dizzy swirl
    where girl loves boy
    and boy loves girl
    and feet don’t touch the ground

    SHAME ON YOU

    it doesn’t really matter where you’re coming from
    it’s no concern of mine where you are bound
    your move from A to B is basic geometry
    the shortest line is me

    spare me lengthy tales of pain and misery
    of how you once were lost..but now are found
    I wasn’t searching…just remember who found who
    between two points in time

    shame on you
    expecting me to go along with all that you do
    shame on you
    go play your game of hide-and-seek with somebody new

    I’m just another port-of–call along the way
    another landing place …but that’s alright
    let’s forget the why’s and wherefore’s
    and get on with saying our goodbyes

    shame on you
    expecting me to go along with all that you do
    shame on you
    go play your game of hide-and-seek with somebody new

    watch my lips hear what they’re saying
    I will spell it out
    keep those mind games you love playing
    they’re not what I’m about

    shame on you
    expecting me to go along with all that you do
    shame on you
    go play your game of hide-and-seek with somebody new

Al Jarreau.
I was only 14-15 years old listening to his album We Got By, and I knew every little phrase and scat by heart. I could sing the whole album in harmony and I spent hours in my room with these songs. Al jarreau was my first true musical hero.
Later, I was so lucky to sing with him for real. Al came to Oslo to record a duet with me, and we sang live together several times. He became a special friend. We invited him for dinner in our house in Oslo, Heine cooked bacalao for him, and Al sang Take Five for my little daughter Karla in my livingroom, backing himself only with his knife and fork. We all kept smiling for many days after he`d left.
Al was an extremely generous and kind man. He made everyone feel special. He was just like his songs.. playful and totally free..,not limited to any genre. He opened the door into music for me.
I am so sad that he as passed away.
But he won`t stop singing. My signed vinyl We Got By will keep playing out loud in my living room.. and I keep doing the scat singing with him, in harmony. Thank you Al Jarreau.

Michael CzernetzkiHe was one of my favorite (Jazz) musicians. Casino lights was my first CD even before I had a CD player and his open air concert in Stadtwäldchen in Budapest in 1996? was the most intimate.
