Miles' Delight by Ted Joans


Miles' Delight



Miles Davis
said he would like a little boy
with a black face
of no certain race but human

Miles Davis
said he would like this little boy
to have red hair
whose religion does he dig? Miles don't care

Miles Davis
said he would like this little boy
to have green eyes
and be hip, and laugh loud and tell no lies

Miles Davis
said he would like this little boy
to play piano
in a style with lots of space
and blow good jazz
and be a credit to the human race

Miles Davis
is that man that walks on egg shells
without breaking his sound
he is cool . . . . . . but heaven knows that he ain't no
cold clown

Miles Davis
with his silver blue horn
Miles Davis has been true blue since he was born
Miles Davis blowing his sophisticated funk Miles
Davis
refusing to mix jazz with junk, Miles Davis

Miles Davis
said he wants this little boy
that no one could call a son of a bitch
but they could only call him son of Miles
So I heard the marvelous Miles Davis story
Hallelujah . . solos to good glory
So I being a good God almighty with a brush
created this boy that mister Miles wanted in a rush
with red hair with green eyes and for Miles Davis
it had a black face and blows good jazz and is a
credit to the entire human race.
