there was the time i wish i could croon

like frank sinatra in vegas

or leonard cohen in singer hall

moan like dylan at cafe wa

or sing like the great hank williams

belting song after song

drinking some old jack daniels

singing songs of love and pain

now mi sueno is to croon like ibrahim ferrer

soulful seductive and raw

giving a live performance in a smoky room

at la bodeguita in old havana

with bassist cachito lopez

pianist roberto fonseca

guitarist manuel galbon

and the old seductive diva omara porftuordo

cantante melodico (crooning)

su corazon engano (your cheatin heart)

mi sueno (my dream)

I like the sound of drinking some old Jack Daniels.

Toronto I was thinking of - China Town

Wonderful~ I too dream of crooning, but I'm more of a croaker.

I'm with you on this. I've always wanted to warble like Ella Fitzgerald or belt out a blues tune like Etta James. You capture the longing for that very well.
