Skye Hawaii

Skye frolics through and delves into in ev'ry metaphorical acre of the expansive, fruitful meadow of the creative arts. He's an amateur author, actor, artist, comedian, composer, film-maker, musician, playwright, singer-songwriter, and just plain ol' writer. He also likes drumming out rhythms on his thighs.

He doesn't really know what he's doing, but, needless to say, he's doing a lot of it.

Track Name: I Won't Mind
I won’t mind sitting by your cradle,
Singing to you softly far into the night.
I won’t mind playing peek-a-boo for always
To see that look of wonder-- wonder and delight.

Soon they’ll be asking, “Where is Baby’s nose?
Where is Baby’s shoe?
Where is Baby’s hat?
Clever little boy,” they’ll say. “Izzy taught him that."

I won’t mind reading you a story,
Quacking like a duck, chirping like a bird.
I won’t mind when you ask me to repeat it
'Til you can say it with me, knowing ev’ry word.

You needn’t worry if there’s chocolate on your face,
Jelly on your hands,
Porridge on my shirt.
Run to me, and I’ll be there to hold you when you hurt.

They’ll say, “Uncle Izzy can’t say no,”
They’ll say, “Uncle Izzy’s spoiling you,”
They’ll say, “Uncle Izzy’s wrapped around your finger.”
I’ll say, “Yes, it’s true.”

I won’t mind knowing that your mother
Covers you with kisses, bakes your fav’rite bread.
I won’t mind when I see your father lift you
And swing you to his shoulders high above my head.

They may be busy; I can take you skating,
I can take you sledding,
Flying down the hill.
If they won’t make a snowman, Uncle Izzy will.

They say, “Uncle Izzy holds too tight,”
They say, “Uncle Izzy can’t let go,”
They say, “Uncle Izzy’s really not your uncle anyway.”
You say, “No, that isn’t so.”

In my heart, I will keep a secret,
Foolish little secret hidden from the rest.
In my dream, you’re my own, my very own,
And I blanket you withal as I hold you to my chest.

Izzy, he’s not yours.
Izzy, in his life, your part is very small.
But if one day a toy should break,
Or maybe playing patty cake,
You call me Dad by mistake,
I won’t mind at all.
