Monday Music Quote: Richter

 MUSIC IS THE POETRY OF THE AIR
-- Richter
Russian pianist 


Poetry in Motion

The song was written by Paul Kaufman (1930–1999) and Mike Anthony (born 1930), who said that the inspiration for it came from looking up from their work and seeing a procession of young ladies from a nearby school pass by on the sidewalk outside each afternoon... The song was later recorded by Bobby Vee in 1961. I remember it well, along with car hops and drive-ins!

When I see my baby, What do I see, Poetry, Poetry in motion...
Verse:1
GEmCD7GEmCD7
Poetry in motion, Walkin' by my side, Her lovely locomotion, Keeps my eyes open wide,
GEmCD7GEmCD7G
Poetry in motion, See her gentle sway, A wave out on the ocean, Could never move that way.
Bridge:
BmEmBmEm
I love every movement, There's nothing I would change,
BmCA7D7
She doesn't need improvement, She's much too nice to rearrange.
Refrain:
GEmCD7GEmCD7G
Poetry in motion, Dancing close to me, A flower of devotion, A-swaying gracefully.
Bridge:2
GEmCD7
Oh, A-whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa, A-whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa,
GEmCD7
A-whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa, Whoa. 
Refrain:2
GEmCD7GEmCD7G
Poetry in motion, See her gentle sway, A wave out on the ocean, Could never move that way.
Bridge:3
BmEmBmEm
I love every movement, There's nothing I would change,
BmCA7D7
She doesn't need improvement, She's much too nice to rearrange.
Refrain:3
GEmCD7GEmCD7G
Poetry in motion, All that I adore, No number-nine love potion, Could make me love her more.
