Itís a long way and it is scary - The World's Longest Song! - a lyrics writing competition on www.writebuzz.com
by writebuzz Admin

If you joined  www.writebuzz.com last year you  may recollect that we have included entries from The Guiness Book of Records associated with writing, in our last festive greetings newsletter? Well, we think it’s about time we (that is you) created a writing record of our own, and this plot enables members of www.writebuzz.com to do just that.

Each plot submission should constitute a verse. Each verse should be written to the tune "It’s a long way to Tipperary" on perpertual replay. Verses should naturally follow each other, be in context and please keep your ear on the tune!

Members may submit as many verses as they wish. Verse which are out of context or don’t work will be removed.

The competition prize winner will be the person who has scored the highest number of review stars when the plot closes on 31 January 07. The winner will strum away with a cool 500 pounds (G.B. sterling).

Readers please review as many threads as you can and provide feedback. The star of this plot will be the person with the most stars, accumulated over all verses.

Enjoy!


Title: Its a long way and its scary
Author: Darren Nicholson

Its a long way and its scary

but I'll get there I know

Its a long way and its scary

but I got no place else to go

shame and humiliation, damaged pride and regrets

Its a long long way and its scary

but I've not quit yet



Title: First Verse
Author: Jason Minty

When we were young and foolish life seemed very sweet.
All our days were eat and play, then we’d get some sleep.
Our parents toiled to make things good, that was there lot.
Till we reached our teens and they turned mean, guess they lost the plot.

Title: Chorus (v 2)
Author: Jason Minty

It’s a long way and it is scary
and it gets pretty tough.
It’s a long way and it is scary
When your ma and pa have had enough
Goodbye smiles and cuddles.
Hello “Don’t you dare”.
It’s a long, long way and it is scary.
Can I go ‘back there’?



Title: another verse and chorus
Author: Maggie Huscroft

The storm that broke rained torrents, making rivers in the sky
As the thunder rumbled, you could hear the angels cry
Lightening flashed as buildings crashed; a cacophony of sounds
So we travel on together as we search for higher ground.

Itís a long way and it's scary
And its cold as the dew.
Itís a long way and it's scary
And it's dark and dismal too.
Sometimes we feel wary
And we doubt that we'll pull through,
'Cause itís a long, long way and it's scary,
But I'm glad I'm with you.


Title: Longest Song (5)
Author: Peter Philips

As we travel road unfamiliar, we search for the right way
It’s so easy to get daunted
and to call it a day
Violent arguments and recriminations
We lash out, then feel remorse
Let’s try and stay on course.

It’s a long way and it is scary
But we’re doing our best
It’s a long way and it is scary
And sometimes we need to take a rest
Goodbye confrontation
Hello 'Here we go'
It’s a long , long way and it is scary
So let’s take it slow.



Title: another verse and chorus
Author: Maggie Huscroft

We're on this road together; it doesn't have to be so hard
We've got determination though we're battle scarred
We'll put bad times behind us as we travel on our way
And we'll journey on as comrades and live our life each day

Itís a fine day; the sun is shining
Just look at that view!
Itís a fine day; the sun is shining
We can see much further too
We can see that silver lining
And where the sky is brightest blue
Itís a fine new day; the sun is shining
And I'm glad I'm with you.
