When I was playing a Venus night some Irish were in town

They were a bunch of loons but they loved their tunes, so great to have around

But my eyes were drawn to a sultry lass who sat there quiet and still

and as I played I saw that maiden pop a little pill

  

I wondered why she’d taken it. How would it manifest?

Was it the flower of some super power, or for a song she might request?

Then as I sang the change began, she started to transform

And with her face the sound of bass and drums she did perform

  

My eyes began to widen her volume did increase

We’d not gone far when a folk guitar was added to the piece!

And then an Irish fiddle was thrown into the mix

It was so profound the depth of sound as she performed her tricks

  

And then I heard some Uillean pipes, a penny whistle too

She played them all as I recall, then suddenly I knew!

I’d heard a tale of one such lass who sang such sounds as these

From low to top the notes she’d hop her musical trapeze

  

Without a single instrument, she didn’t need to play

She’d wow the hoards with her vocal chords from Cork to Mandalay

It was Nadia from Dublin! She’s famed throughout the land

With her long dark hair and her fiery stare She Sings A One Man Band

  

And here she was this very night transforming in my gaze

And before too long I stopped my song as I was so amazed

The noise a-coming from her throat it filled the now still air

I said “Oh shit! The dust I’ve bit” as the crowd they turned to stare

  

No longer did they look at me, no longer did they listen

They began to purr entranced by her like kittens they were smitten

I lost my show and want you to know if you are a musician

Please take care, you’d best beware, you’ll not fulfil your mission!

  

If Nadia’s in the audience, anywhere you play

And pops that pill of her free will then she will seize your day

She’s Nadia from Dublin! She’s famed throughout the land

With her long dark hair and her fiery stare She Sings A One Man Band

  

Oh yes She’s Nadia from Dublin! She’s famed throughout the land

With her long dark hair and her fiery stare She Sings A One Man Band

She’s Nadia from Dublin! She’s famed throughout the land

With her long dark hair and her fiery stare She Sings A One Man Band

    

  

The Story of 'She Sings A One Man Band'

This one was a challenge from some of my audience

One night at one of my regular gigs there was a bunch of holiday makers from Ireland

They were really enjoying the gig and taking full part as us Celts are known to do

They also came by whilst I was playing at my next gig a couple of days later down at the beach

Then after that gig I bumped into them again while I was carrying the gear back to the van

One of the guys was messing around saying that one of the girls (Nadia) could play guitar too

I joined in by saying that I'd heard about her, and that she could also play bass and drums!

Then one of the other girls asked me if I could write a song about Nadia before the next gig, which they all promised to come to.

Never one to decline a song writing challenge I of course agreed, and came up with this one one morning in my van :)

Unfortunately the guys never turned up for the next gig, so they never got to hear the song

But I played it acoustically after the gig and another girl there was so impressed that she asked me to write one about her before my next gig!

I rose to the challenge again (Stefanie from Belgium) but then she didn't turn up either!

I wonder where it's all going to end...
