I saw a friend that I had wronged

More than ten years to this day

And she gave me a second look

When I called out her name.

 

Then she flashed a smile towards me

As I quickly crossed the street

Her hands well they softly touched me

She looked beautiful and sweet.

 

I’d kept her in my heart for oh so many years

And as I kissed her lips her eyes filled up with tears.

I’d forgotten what went wrong –we both had moved on

But I felt for certain, I was guilty for what I’d done.

 

Hashtag, bad timing, Hashtag, she’s crying

Hashtag, I’m sorry, Hashtag, a true story

 

The corners of her mouth turned wide

As I watched her shut her eyes

When we kissed I felt her shiver

Little voice inside me whispered.

 

She said it’s so good to see you

But I’m married, thought you knew.

Then she turned, jumped into a cab

and she vanished from my view.

 

I’d kept her in my heart for oh so many years

And as I kissed her lips, her eyes filled up with tears.

I’d forgotten what went wrong — we both had moved on

But I felt for certain I was guilty for what I’d done.

Hashtag, bad timing, Hashtag, she’s crying

Hashtag, I’m sorry, Hashtag, a true story

 

[Rap start]

You find someone cool who will make you feel alive

With ebony eyes so ya call her “home-slice”.

Hot-cooked meals that are spiced with love

She’ll be everything that you’re dreaming of.

But the saddest truth that you’ll ever find..

She may not be The One that ya spend your whole life.

Cuz time’s like a circle at the end of a glass

Sipping on memories – what ya did in the past

But deep inside she can start a fire.. that can never die.

I write this from the heart.. cuz I got nothing to hide.

No, I got nothing to hide.

[Rap end]

 

Hashtag, bad timing, Hashtag, she’s crying

Hashtag, I’m sorry, Hashtag, a true story

Hashtag, thinking bout you.

Hashtag, sometimes you lose.

Hashtag, hashtag, hashtag…

I’m still in love… with you.

The Meaning of Christmas Day

The Meaning of Christmas Day

By Robert Boog

It rained hard the night before Christmas

But I had to buy a gift or two

Yet for some unspoken reason

I turned left on the avenue.

 

My van moved slow through pouring rain

when I saw someone falling down

She held a bundled baby and

Her husband helped her off the ground

 

I pulled off to the side and yelled out

“Do you need a ride?”

Not sure if they spoke English

But they quickly jumped inside.

 

When I asked them “Where ya headed to?”

the man he said “Jose”

Called his wife Maria

And said that Sixth Street would be okay.

 

Well, they smelled a bit like humility

Maria and Jose

They’d named their baby Jesus

Cuz he was born on the holiday

So hush a bye and don’t you cry

Cuz everything’s okay

Soon I’ll be opening presents

cuz that’s the meaning of Christmas Day

 

 

When we got to the destination

I found everything pitch dark

“We stay in a back garage ” he said

So I put my van in park.

 

“Gracias for the ride amigo,

Tu eres amable”

Then Maria bundled up their babe

And I watched them step away

 

Well, they smelled a bit like humility

Maria and Jose

They’d named their baby Jesus

Cuz he was born on the holiday

So hush a bye and don’t you cry

Cuz everything’s okay

Soon I’ll be home with my family

That’s the meaning of Christmas Day

 

 

The next day I drove to Sixth street

Out of pure curiosity

The day was warm and sunny

So I parked beside a tree

 

That’s when I discovered to my surprise

There was no garage at back.

Just a vacant lot with a chain-link fence

And I wondered where they’d went

 

If there’s a message to this song it’s

treat everyone the same – try to

Do something nice for others that could

Be you walking in the rain

 

Well they smelled a bit like humility

Maria and Jose

They’d named their baby Jesus

Cuz he was born on the holiday

So hush a bye and don’t you cry

Cuz everything’s okay

Today I’ll celebrate my savior’s birth

that’s the meaning of Christmas Day

Yeah, the meaning of Christmas Day

We took a drive down the coast
The cows gave us sideways looks
Entered my town you saw a man
who sat on a bench and dozed
Watched people on bicycles
women and men young and old
Most would wave or smile and then say
“Hello,” or “have a good day.”
Your intimacy feels like home oh-oh-ome
Your intimacy completes my soul
I deeply believe you know oh, oh, oh
I ‘m deeply feel-ing close
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh
The deep, green leaves turn gold
Like us one day we’ll grow old-
With you by my side we’ll smile
And laugh till we’re ninety five
You’re lovely and passionate
And there are no accidents
Gave me your heart -so go for it—
I’m yours, I’m yours, I’m yours
Your intimacy feels like home oh-oh-ome
Your intimacy completes my soul
I deeply believe you know oh, oh, oh
I ‘m deeply feel-ing close
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh oh
You are a lock and I am your key
I am a sailor you are the sea
I wanted you you wanted me
The fairy tale goes, they lived happily
Let’s take a stroll in the sun
We’ll feed the ducks like we’re young
I’m in the mood to tell the truth
without a word I love you,
My intimacy feels like home- oh-oh-ome
My intimacy completes your soul
You deeply believe I know
You’re deeply feeling close
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Deeply.Deeply.Deeply feeling you close.
Deeply.Deeply.Deeply feeling me close.
Your intimacy, just you and me, feels like home.
My intimacy just you and me, completes your soul
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh.
Oh, oh, oh.oh

Gift of Love

Gift of Love
sung by Phydra

Jump up –today’s my birthday
And I’m now six years old
I’m a little drunk on freedom
don’t always do as I am told.
Head out— and my mom is smiling
And now I’m wondering?
There’s popcorn on the cherry trees
And a little bird chirps at me
He’s green with yellow feathers
And likes to tickle my neck.
I feed him and I water him
Best birthday present yet!
Gift of love
It’s a gift from above
And as mommy watches me
tears slide from her smiling eyes and
I begin to sing

He’s a gift of love – a gift from above
A gift of love – a gift from my mom
Run out —cuz today’s my birthday
my sister envies me
Put my birdy on her shoulder
And then she laughs out suddenly
Show off— today’s my birthday
And everywhere I go
Little birdy guards my shoulder
cuz he wants everyone to know
He’s a gift of love
A gift from above
And as my mommy watches me
Tears slide from her smiling eyes and
I begin to sing
He’s a gift of love – a gift from above
A gift of love – a gift from my mom
Wake up — today’s my birthday
And I’m twenty-six years old
Buy coffee at the shopping mall
And I shiver cuz I’m cold – oh oh
Sun’s out— cuz today is my birthday
See a little boy and his mom
He smiles at me as he passes by
And I watch them move along
He’s gotta green and yellow sweater
And he laughs out of control
She holds his little hand in hers
They love each other so-oh
He’s a gift of love
a gift from above
And as his mommy watches me
Tears slide from her smiling eyes and
I begin to sing
He’s a gift of love – a gift from above
A gift of love – a gift from above
A gift of love – a gift from his mom
A gift of love – it’s a gift of love.

Booyah!
Robert Boog

(Want to listen to the song? Click here!)
At twenty-three he was always hectic.
Dating girls, mister automatic
It gets harder when you’re thirty-five.
You gotta job no kids and you wanna life.
Not a young thing– but a classic beauty.
Likes to dance and she can shake dat booty.
Up in the club with her best friend
Sees him smiling. Soon she dances with him. (singing)
Booyah, boo- yah, yah,
Booyah, boo-ooh yah, yah, yah, (yeah,yeah,yeah)
Quick as a hunter, he takes her number
Playing the game – she gives him a fake name
A Lot of players down in Hollywood
She doesn’t know yet if he’s bad or good. (singing)
Booyah, booyah, yah,
Booyah, boo- yah, yah, yah, (yeah,yeah,yeah
Well, break me off a little something, something
Cuz when I see ya, babe my heart be thumping
You’re the one I been dreaming of,
Need someone I can fall in love (singing)
Booyah, boo-yah-yah,
Booyah, boo-yah-yah-yah, (yeah,yeah,yeah
Well, break me off a lil something, something
Cuz when you’re gone, I feel like Humpty Dumpty
My heart’s in pieces on da floor,
Your love so strong — I want some more (singing)
Booyah, booyah-yah, Booyah, boo-yah, yah,yah…(yeah,yeah,yeah).
[Then three weeks later — she tells him the truth
I gave you a fake name – I lied to you.
I’ll understand if you want me to go.
My feelings real for you –I wanted you to know.]
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, uh oh oh Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, uh oh oh
He ain’t stupid –he’s not a martyr
Some girls be pretty and some be smarter
Dating got me the best of both worlds
Give you one more chance – if you be my girl
We turn the clock ahead three years later
Their true love playing so much greater.
They give da baby her mama’s name,
And at the wedding, she be sleeping safe (thinking)
Booyah, boo-ooh yah, yah,
Booyah, boo-ooh yah, yah, yah, (yeah,yeah,yeah
Well, break me off a lil something, something.
Cuz when you’re gone I feel like Humpty Dumpty
My heart’s in pieces on da floor.
Your love so strong – I want some more (singing)
Booyah, booooh yah, yah,
Booyah, boo-ooh yah, yah, yah, (yeah,yeah,yeah
Booyah, booyah, yah,
Booyah, boo-ooh yah, yah, yah, (yeah,yeah,yeah
Come on. Booyah, boo-ooh yah, yah,

Xmas Baby Lyrics:

Back then, when my mom was alive, yeah, at Christmas time, One thing we would do that would never fail is take a trip downtown to hear the Christmas carols…coming out of the County Jail.

And sometimes, maybe just sometimes,(well maybe just for me) I’d hear “Happy birthday” from my real daddy.

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby  Born on Christmas day,covershadowed by the holidaycBut if you come here then maybe,you’ll sing happy birthday to me!

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby, Born on Christmas day, overshadowed by the holiday, But if you come here then maybe, you’ll sing happy birthday to me!

My morning is shot by NFL on TV, And nobody but debt collectors are calling me. So I walk to the park — see a man dressed like Santa. Drunk as a skunk while every church is singing hosannas. And everybody else gets a cake (for their birthday) But not for me, there’s no special day to celebrate.

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby/Born on Christmas day,overshadowed by the holiday/ But if you come here then maybe, maybe/you’ll sing happy birthday to me..

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby, born on Christmas day, overshadowed by the holiday/ But if you come here then maybe,you’ll sing happy birthday to me..

As the late morning hour gently sighs, teardrops fall straight down from the sky. A kid runs past in some dirty sweats. Followed by a car, the driver’s face dead set. So I jog six blocks to my apartment. The landlord lookin’ at me like he want the rent. Yank open the door and what a surprise!

Damn raindrop musta caught me in the eye. Cuz my friends all a hollerin, and giving me hugs. And everyone that’s there — starts to showing me love.My Girlie lays on me a deep French kiss and I’m in shock, man, I didn’t expect this!

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby, Born on Christmas day,overshadowed by the holiday. But if you come here then maybe you’ll sing happy birthday to me..

Cuz I’m a Christmas baby, born on Christmas day, overshadowed by the holidayBut if you come here then maybe you’ll sing happy birthday to me

Peace out.

Not Yet Christmas

Not Yet Xmas
Robert Boog

You can listen to the song here, love it and buy it!
maybe it’s the chilly weather
Seeing folks … together.
Last minute gifts, disappointments
Nuff food to feed a small city.
Santas , Dads, Moms with Kids
Jesus ,Mary and Joseph.
Three wise men… bringing gifts…
people-watching excitement.
They’re telling me I gotta be strong
You’ll get over it, it’s time to move on.
maybe I thought I was through but
Here’s the holidays without you, and
Baby, I’m still missing you,
I know there’s nothing I can do
And maybe I ain’t over it, yeah,
Baby, I’m not over it, yet. Not yet. Not yet. Not yet. Not yet.
Snow came late again this year
Draped the yard in white and it’s weird
Heard a song by Ziggy Stardust
With Bing Crosby –your favorite
remember that time in Hawaii? kept
Saying Mele Kalikimaki
Then we went to the Christmas party
And we missed a plane to Maui.
They’re telling me I gotta be strong
You’ll get over it, it’s time to move on.
maybe I thought I was through but
Here’s the holidays without you and
Baby, I’m still missing you,
I know there’s nothing I can do
And maybe I ain’t over it, yeah.
Baby, I’m not over it, yet. Not yet. Not yet. Not yet.
BRIDGE: [ I miss your lousy parking
I miss your stupid joking
And I wish I could bring you back cuz
I think I’m kinda jealous]
They’re telling me I gotta be strong
You’ll get over it,it’s time to move on.
maybe I thought I was through but
Here’s the holidays without you and
Baby, I’m still missing you,
I know there’s, nothing I can do
And maybe I ain’t over it,
Baby, I’m not over it, Yet.
Not yet. Not yet. Not yet.Not yet.

The Dream

The Dream

Robert Boog

CLICK THIS LINK TO LISTEN – OR PURCHASE

This year held so many things

But I learned to let them go.

It’s not someone or something…

but the hardest thing I know.

 

I’m not blaming anyone but

I hope now for what I want.

Maybe I will never get it –

but in others I’ll see the best.

 

Chorus:       I’m not lonely but I do live alone

I’m satisfied but I know I want more

Cuz I’m tired and I don’t want to

Play these games no more. No more.

 

So I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to hear blunt honesty.

And I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to have “the dream”.

 

I know I may not be perfect,

But I know I am unique.

I’m no cookie- cutter image

of what someone else should be.

 

I know I’m certainly flawed…

but I’m fearful of being deceived.

I know I’m certainly flawed…

but this is… ME.

 

 

I’m not lonely but I do live alone

I’m satisfied but I know I want more

Cuz I’m tired and I don’t want to

Play these games no more. No more!

So I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to hear blunt honesty.

And I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to have “the dream” – ee-eem.

 

BRIDGE: Wanna live and love and laugh

Have a family… You and me,

two kids… and in love.. it’s my Fantasy.

It’s my Fantasy….

 

You will set my heart on fire

Laugh and tell me silly things.

You’ll hold my hand when it’s tough

Smile at me –n- say I’m loved.

 

I’m not lonely but I do live alone

I’m satisfied but I know I want more.

Cuz I’m tired and I don’t want to

Play these games no more. No more!

 

So I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to hear blunt honesty.

And I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy

I just want to have “the dream”.

It’s been 3 months 2 days ago

but I still can’t let you go

Do you even think of me?

You made my life so beautiful

 

I think your memory alone

keeps me going every day.

Love ya more than I did before

I keep imagining your face

 

Cuz nothings changed -No one here can take your place

It gets harder every day – for me to win this race

 

You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart

–it’s like you’ve broken me — apart. I’d

never let anyone  –hurt you like you have done.

You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart

 

Wanna feel your fire constantly;

So warm and glowing my way.

Wanna feel your warm embrace

Your hot arms holding me safe.

 

When the tears fall from my eyes

I feel so empty inside

Yeah life goes on without you

But it still doesn’t feel right.

 

PRE CHORUS: Cuz nothings changed -No one here can take your place

It gets harder every day – for me to win this race

 

You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart

–it’s like you’ve broken me — apart. I’d

never let anyone  –hurt you like you have done.

You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart

 

 

Feel like Father McKenzie or Eleanor Rigby…

 face in a jar by the door.

Some times at night I look up at the stars

feeling lonely — wonder where you are?

 

You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart

–it’s like you’ve broken me — apart. I’d

never let anyone  –hurt you like you have done.

You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart

 

It’s been 3 months 2 days ago

but I still can’t let you go

Do you even think of me?

You made my life so beautiful.

(RAOK = random acts of kindness)

Robert Boog

 

Drove all night to see his ex-wife

And give new hubby a break

Stayed with her after chemo

So Hubby got to sleep that day.

 

Three weeks later she passed away

Surrounded by all her friends

Someone paid for the funeral

No one ever learned who did.

 

Random acts of kindness

That don’t make the front page news

Maybe it’s a way we tell someone

I care about you

 

Random acts of kindness

that we’re all guilty of

Maybe it’s a way we show our thanks

To the man above.

 

Customer at a crowded cafe

Left a hundred dollar tip

Place was packed so food was cool

But, he had been a waiter too.

 

 

I did something nice for my wife

I cleaned out her messy car

And because she likes nature

I plant a tree in the yard.

 

 

Random acts of kindness

That don’t make the front page news

Maybe it’s a way we tell someone

I care about you

Random acts of kindness

That we’re all guilty of

Maybe it’s a way we show our thanks

To the man above.

 

 

You can change somebody’s life by just being kind

And the memory carries with them – for all their life

So don’t underestimate the powerful effect

My six year old says, “One day, gonna help a Vet!”

 

Random acts of kindness

That don’t make the front page news

Maybe it’s a way we tell someone

I’ve been in your shoes.

 

Car in front of me paid my bill

at the drive-through today. I

Left $200 for cars behind and

I hope it gives them faith

 

Random acts of kindness

That we’re all guilty of

Maybe it’s a way we show our thanks

To the man above….

Or maybe… it’s today…

we show some love to just anyone.
