Are you ready for BAM?On Wed, 19 April, 2017 - 21:09
In the middle of BAM Elton John is playing a concert at Portman Road, which is 300 metres from the Ipswich Buddhist Centre. I hope his business people will be OK that I’ve put new words to one of his songs, usually rendered as “Are You Ready for Love?”. The chorus works well, but I’ve only managed one verse and even that is work in progress, so all suggestions for further development are welcome.
ARE YOU READY FOR BAM?
(VERSE) Help the world, and be more green
Be a Bodhisattva
The month of June, we can re-tune
Generous hearts around the world
We can make a difference
If we just try, aim for the sky
I think of Tara’s love giving warmth that’s divine
All beings cherished close in right actions so fine, actions so fine
(CHORUS) Are you ready, are you ready for BAM
Yes I am, oh yes I am
Are you ready, are you ready for BAM
Yes I am, oh yes I am (and so on)
