D Byron Patterson

BandPopSinger/Songwriter

Witty folksy pop singer / songwriter / comedian with smart lyrics, catchy hooks, and a great stage presence for kids and kids at heart.

Biography

A BA in Graphic Design doesn't feed my soul, so I sing and perform when I can. I write my own music and lyrics, but I also write short fiction, poetry, and music parodies (with lyrics). I got an influential 2x4 from Mom, who always pushed singers from the 50s and 60s who harmonized well. I am the creative director for Lambpants.com and Lamb Planet, character-driven performance art websites for kids, where I write, sing, and produce the content.

Lyrics

Yes, No Good-byes (Come As You Are)

Written By: D. Byron Patterson

Where was I running off to?
Don't know, I can't remember
Exactly why I even came this way
It's like a dream and it seemed
The best way to get lost in finding
The reasons why I wasted yesterday

Now I'm just lying here
Busting rain clouds in the sky
You're right beside me smiling
We're just watching the world go by

I was wondering
If you would be stopping by
Come and go as you please
But come and go as you are
You can wish in a well
Or make a wish on a star
Say hello to never being alone
Yes, no goodbyes

Sometimes the years can make you
Feel like you're way too heavy
To take a leap of faith
From way up high
Look out below, just go
And don't get hung up on the falling
It takes a lot of love
To learn how to fly

It's a beautiful world,
can you imagine?
Just close your eyes
So many different ways to see
And all the magic you need
Is deep inside

I was wondering
If you would be stopping by
Come and go as you please
But come and go as you are
You can wish in a well
Or make a wish on a star
Say hello to never being alone
Yes, no goodbyes

A Lamb's Menagerie

Written By: Parody Lyrics by D. Byron Patterson

In a house beneath the trees
There’s a window beneath the eaves
Where some friends of Love & Fleece
Make a Lamb’s Menagerie

A dragon climbs and tries to fly
But a monkey will break his fall
And a pig will surf the Web
As all the Mongos play Mongo Ball

We all live in a Lamb’s Menagerie
Lamb’s Menagerie, Lamb’s Menagerie
We all live in a Lamb’s Menagerie
Lamb’s Menagerie, Lamb’s Menagerie

If you ever think you’re bored
There’s a place where you can play
And a Lamb will have a say!

We all live in a Lamb’s Menagerie
Lamb’s Menagerie, Lamb’s Menagerie
We all live in a Lamb’s Menagerie
Lamb’s Menagerie, Lamb’s Menagerie

Brought to life for you to see
We’re not alone in this family
Discover you are family too
In a Lamb’s Menagerie

So fill the Earth with Love & Fleece
A Magic Lamb is all you need
Eyecap blue with cuffed pants too
Come join this Lamby’s Menagerie

We all live in a Lamb’s Menagerie
Lamb’s Menagerie, Lamb’s Menagerie
We all live in a Lamb’s Menagerie
Lamb’s Menagerie, Lamb’s Menagerie
