I'm a lyricist and have collaborated with musicians to create quite a few pretty decent songs. I like ballads, soft rock, country and comedy songs. I was lucky enough to live my teens in the 70s (some say I'm still there) so I've been inspired by Billy Joel, The Eagles, America, John Lennon (all the Beatles stuff actually) etc. I'm no musician but I do create tunes in my head for the lyrics that I write and I enjoy the challenge of putting lyrics to musicians' tunes. I also love writing parodies and have had a few recorded by radio stations and played on air.
Dreams and ambitions:
I'd love to create songs with a like-minded songwriter. Someone who can benefit from my lyrics like I would benefit from their musical prowess. If I could one day hear one of my songs on the radio, I'd die a happy man :)
EASY FOR YOU – Lyrics by Allan West You sit there With your fake blonde hair And your Marie Clare And you just don’t care For me You drive away Every single day In your Chevrolet And do a spot on Pay TV You say I’m always gonna be the one But you’re the one who’s always out there havin’ fun You say we’ve gotta trust each other every day Well listen when I tell you honey That’s easy for you to sayyyy, yeah That’s easy for you to say You look so nice When you roll that dice ‘n’ cool your lips with ice But you’ll pay the price One day Who’s gonna know you when the chips are down? Who’s gonna be around? When some new kid in town Starts to play You say I’m always gonna be the one But you’re the one who’s always out there havin’ fun You say we’ve gotta trust each other every day Well listen when I tell you honey That’s easy for you to sayyyy, yeah That’s easy for you to say BRIDGE In front of that lens There are no split ends You’ve got a fear you disguise With your contact blue eyes Is that really you Or the autocue Tellin’ me of poverty in Kathmandu? You trip the light Every single night With the erudite But there’s a morning’ sight They don’t see Who makes you coffee for your throbbin’ head? When you’re feelin’ dead? Who keeps you warm in bed? That is me I realise they’re tearin’ you away You’re gonna up and leave me in your Chevrolet But when you whisper to me in that special way ‘Tell me that you love me, honey!’ That’s easy for me to sayyyy, yeah That’s easy for me to say.
