Aladdin's Dilemma

Wish I could live
In a movie world
Guttin’ all the villains
As I save the girl

Wish I could ride
In a fancy car
Stocked with the best
Like a rollin’ bar

Wish I was sly
As a wealthy gent
Livin’ off the dole
Of the government

Wish I could crash
In a sprawlin’ home
Frontin’ some respect
With a fine-tooth comb

Wish I could master
All the sickest moves
And let the also-rans
Bitch about the rules

Wish there were wishes
Tall enough to dream
Until that day comes
Let the whole world sing –


A little bit of nothin’
Just sorta stings
Burn it all down
Join hands and sing…

  So at my count, you've got six wishes here. The genie traditionally gives only three. So that's Aladdin's dilemma - how to handle a greedy wisher? Lol

You need to hand this one over to Paul Simon or Jason Mraz, put a little pop tune to it with a reggae backbeat. As always, I love your work!

  This is fun stuff. It seems very "rappy". I can almost see the video in my mind.

My favorite lines:

A little bit of nothin’
Just sorta stings

Yep, this is bold and provocative and speaks to the want that is created from just seeing this type of lifestyle exalted and romanticized on TV and in the movies. And through music, of course.

And yet, as Jacob points out, what would it really feel like? Would it bring a sense of depth and understanding to our lives? Would it create joy, bring inner peace? Evidence seems to be to the contrary. How many stars and people with money end up with drug habits, or commit suicide or have eating disorders or mental illness, alcoholism? "Things" don't seem to quell demons. In fact, at times they seem to fuel the demons' fires.

Just sayin' . . .

Good write, though. I enjoyed it.

  i too wish i could do all these least for one day, just to say i could and did...then i would want to go back to being little ole me.

you phrase so smoothly...seems effortless...but carries so much zing.
