  1. 6 Sunny Lisa

From The Recordings Html

The lyrics came in August, 2021 but the music is much older, going back to 1991 when I was jamming around at a friend's house. It just about tumbled out of my fingers. Fortunately, tape was rolling so I captured it and more recently re-learned it, fleshed it out, and finally came up with this psychedelically-tinged ode to yet another mysterious, pretty girl. One of the finest musicians on the planet, my friend Marc Adler, plays the lovely flute improvisations on this one.

Lyrics

Sunny Lisa

Gazing through a smoky window
Wishing for a sunny sign that
The savage winds of winter are behind me
But all that seems to show up
Is another angry storm
Yet another raging rain about to blind me

Come tomorrow I'll start over
Maybe with a brighter spin
Or some clever re-invention of my story
When I re-write this fairy-tale and once again begin
Oh what a love song it will be
But where is the Lady, who is she?

Say hello to sunny Lisa
With the rainbows in her eyes
Welcome the lovely sunny Lisa
And her butterfly surprise
She's a pretty Senorita
With kaleidoscopic eyes
Tonight I’ll dream of you, my Lisa
In your tropicalia paradise
Hey Lisa
Sunny day, Lisa
Tres soleil…come on Lisa…


I am standing at the border
Between what’s past and what’s to come
Holding on for all I'm worth to my salvation
Emerging from the shadow
That's defined me up to now
I stand good and ready for this transformation

At the altar of desire
Gonna finally work my plan
And embrace whatever comes with this adventure
May I meet you Lady Lisa where blue oceans meet white sands
I’ve a wish I pray comes true
And it’s all about finally finding you…

Introducing sunny Lisa
She got rainbows in her eyes
Welcome the lovely sunny Lisa
And her summertime surprise
Such a pretty Senorita
With kaleidoscopic eyes
Tonight I’ll dream of you, dear Lisa
There In your tropicalia paradise
Hey Lisa
Tres soleil Lisa
Tres soleil…

At the shrine of my desire
Gonna finally get it right
And with all my might embrace this Grand Adventure
I will join you, Lady Lisa, where the dark meets the light
Oh what a sweet song we will write
Dizzy from dancing, day and night…

Say hello…to sunny Lisa…
With the psychedelic eyes
Welcome the lovely funny Lisa
Bringing sweet summertime highs, and butterflies, hey Lisa

There she goes, sunny Lisa
She got rainbows in her eyes
Welcome the lovely sunny Lisa and her summertime surprise
Such a pretty Senorita, with kaleidoscopic eyes
Tonight I’ll love you sunny Lisa
In your tropicalia paradise
Hey Lisa
Tres soleil Lisa
Make my day, sunny Lisa
Tres Soleil…
