GOOD PEOPLE BY JACK JOHNSON

GOOD PEOPLE BY JACK JOHNSON

You know me. I am a jolly good fellow surrounded with good people. You know what, this song reminds me of a popular adage peculiar to the Yoruba speaking people in Western Nigeria.

Awon eniyan ni aso mi

In English language, it means people are my clothes. It is proverb that suits this beautiful song by Jack Johnson. The question in the song is, where are all the good people?

Sharing Your Vibe

Will you share your vibe
dance into mine
walk on my beach
where have you been, love?

You afternoon my words
finding your beat to stay us
everyone else is gone
shall we make today our?

Tales of loves lost & found
our mood remembers them
starlight blanketing us
where will we go now?

good people
has sojourned in
daffodil dreams
where the blue Jays sings
kissed down
with all the

remembrance of blooms
scenting the air
for honey bees
floating on water lilies
and love remembers
the exotic delirium
of their laughter
compensating mornings .

Good people are gone, where did they go? no smiles I see, a life moving slow.
