Jazz Poems by Taran 



As heard on drummer Florian Chaigne's CD, BLOOMING on AUT Records.


Thank you lord…thank you

 thank you thank you thank you thank you

thank you for everything


thank you for the sunshine

thank you for the red wine

thank you for the blue eyed blonds

with beauteous behinds


thank you for the flowers

thank you for the beautiful day

thank you for the bees

thank you for the birds chirping away


thank you for the fireplace

thank you for the wooden floor

thank you for the things

i never had before


thank you for the wonderful wife

thank you for the easy easy life

thank you for the HOT HOT HOT mistress

and her crazy little dress


 thank you for christmas

thank you for jack kerouac, henry miller,

langston hughes

thank you for the weary blues

thank you for all the good things

you bestow on this poor sinner


thank you for the love, sex, jazz

and joy galore

And dont you stop giving lord

Gimme more!


yeah dontcha EVER stop givin

cos i love the life i’m livin

Bigger, better, more than before

yeah, gimme more! 



As heard on drummer Florian Chaigne's CD, BLOOMING on AUT Records.

i am a goldfish

i am a goldfish baby

i go round n round

i travel miles and miles


miles n miles

round and round

anywhere i go

in this bowl i’m found


night and day

i slog away

i burn the midnight oil

i turn and i toil

and experience the turmoil


i live in a pot

i ain’t so hot

there ain’t much i got


i am a gold fish

i am a gold fish baby

tied to this pot


i’m gonna live






yes yes yes

yes yes yes

I need your love

And you need mine

Cos the love we make

is divine


yes yes

it’s a fuckin mess

but I must confess

it makes us whole

body and soul!



i saw her today
she looked lovely
in every way

her lips on mine were
warm and loving
her hand in mine was
soft and warm

we kissed, cuddled
gazed nd conversed

i had a myriad stories to tell
i had a lot more to say
when she
spread her wings
and floated
out of my day
