Me, Myself, I

I was listening to the radio just he other day and a song came on that I instantly knew I loved… I knew I loved it instantly because it was a song I had heard many times over the last 15 years or so and each time I told myself, “Mr Omneo, you must buy that song” Now, if you can accept that I seldom listen to anyone else’s instructions, you can imagine how often I listen to myself, instructing myself!

The song in question is Joan Armatrading singing Me, Myself I. It is, to my mind, a beautiful song, so beautiful in fact I actually parted with real coin (79p) at iTunes in order to purchase it and own it all for my very own some!

In case you are wondering, here are the lyrics of the song;
Me, Myself, I by Joan Armatrading

I sit here by myself
And you know I love it
You know I don’t want someone
To come pay a visit
I wanna be by myself
I came in this world alone
Me myself I
I wanna go to China
And to see Japan
I’d like to sail the oceans
before the seas run dry
I wanna go by myself
I’ve just room enough for one
My myself I
I wanna be a bigshot
And have ninety cars
I wanna have a boyfriend
And a girl for laughs
But only on saturdays
Six days to be alone
Just me myself I
Me myself and I
Just me myself I
Don’t wanna be the bad guy
Don’t wanna make a soul cry
It’s not that I love my self
I just don’t want company
Just me myself I
Me myself and I
Just me myself I
I sit here by myself
And you know I love it
You know I don’t want someone
To come pay a visit
I wanna be by myself
I came in this world alone
Me myself I

Now, read on their own they give some idea glimmer of the beauty that makes up the whole song but without the music the words are nothing… luckily then I love you, dear reader, enough to share the song with you… enjoy!
