Gimme Gimme Gimme the FINAL Challenge

THE LAST CHALLENGE! Finally, I have completed the last of the online challenge for CBC’s Canada Writes. This one was a lot harder for me. I’m not sure I’m destined to be a song writer – at least not one for ABBA. So here is my submission. Please CLICK HERE, search my name and rate my “Song2” submission before Friday April 17th.

My lyrics are below.

Winter’s done
And I”m watching the sunset get later every day
Oh I can’t wait for swimsuits and sand and waves
SPF
I know it’s to protect me but it keeps me ghostly
And the greasy formula scares away boys
Is there a God up there?
One who can hear my prayer?

Gimme Gimme Gimme a tan in the summer
My alabaster skin reflects the light away
Gimme gimme gimme a tan in the summer
I can’t stand how people point and stare every day

Sun to me
It’s a natural enemy, I’m pigmentless you see
But a base tan is all I need to be free
Skin will burn
But the end result will be some colour over me
Oh I hope that they’ll stop calling me white-y
Is there a God up there?
One who can hear my prayer?

Gimme Gimme Gimme a tan in the summer
My alabaster skin reflects the light away
Gimme gimme gimme a tan in the summer
I can’t stand how people point and stare every day

(in case you missed the point, this is to the tune of GIMME GIMME GIMME (A Man After Midnight) by Abba)
