Information

Poets Can't Sing

"I Could Write a Book" is a show tune from the 1940 Rodgers and Hart musical Pal Joey (1940), where it was introduced by Gene Kelly and Leila Ernst.

Stella and Earl start out as friends in 'Poets Can't Sing'. It is not a relationship easily started - hard to deny as a whirlwind of circumstances bring them together. By the end of 'Silencing the Blues Man' - the third book in the three book series - Earl passes on and we discover that Earl can never be silenced. The following song is not in the book; in hindsight perhaps it should have.

A B CD E F G
I never learned to spell,
At least not well.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7
I never learned to count,
A great amount.

But my busy mind is burning to use what learning I`ve got,
I won`t waste any time,
I`ll strike while the iron is hot.

If they asked me, I could write a book
About the way you walk, and whisper, and look.
I could write a preface
On how we met
So the world would never forget.

And the simple secret of the plot
Is just to tell them that I love you a lot.
And the world discovers
As my book ends,
How to make two lovers
Of friends.

And the simple secret of the plot
Is just to tell them that I love you a lot.
And the world discovers
As my book ends,
How to make two lovers
Of friends.

Earl and Stella would be honored by your choice of songs - as am I the author.
