LET’S GIVE ALL WE HAVE (song performance)

I wrote this song in August 1994 when I was 15 years old.
The performance in the video was filmed on 9 April 2018 (39 years old now! OMG! Time goes too fast!).
I guess I felt the need to revisit my teen years and remember the dreams I had back then.
Some dreams, some wishes, some feelings are timeless, no matter how old we become.
By the way, I’m not an experienced xylophone player, so I keep the composition simple. I’m not that talented.
Audio quality is not great either, but this recording is all I have right now.

Love,

Ryan

Let’s give all we have (lyrics)

I’m tired of sharing fun with myself.
It’s never been my wish, like today.
I’ve always been happy, as you see.
It could have been better together.

And I know that’s the way you think too.
Together we’ll take it much further.

Let’s give all we have.
What’s inside of you?
Whatever it is,
I’m gonna treat you right.

Tell me why you need me as a friend.
Know the reason yourself why it’s me.
‘Cause whatever we have, has value.
Don’t break down the road in front of us.

And I know that’s the way you think too.
Together we’ll take it much further.

Let’s give all we have.
What’s inside of you?
Whatever it is,
I’m gonna treat you right.

But life is not a fairy tale.
Try to survive my bad moods.
Don’t run away too.

And I know that’s the way you think too.
Together we’ll take it much further.

Let’s give all we have.
What’s inside of you?
Whatever it is,
I’m gonna treat you right.

Let’s give all we have.
What’s inside of you?
Whatever it is,
I’m gonna treat you right.

Let’s give all we have!
Tell me!
What’s inside of you?
Tell me!
Aha
What’s inside of you?

Lyrics written by Ryan Maurice Roemer in August 1994 when I was 15 years old.

MOTHER GOOSE (lyrics)

Mother goose, all little ducks belong with you.
Mother goose, nobody takes care the way you do.
All little ducks feel safe with you.

Teach your little babies to cross the street, is what you do.
Teach your little babies to rise to the sky, is what you do, mother goose.
And when there’s danger, you’ll protect them with your life.
Just like an angel you won’t hesitate to fight.

Mother goose, your love is the purest of all that’s true.
Mother goose, mother goose.
And when there’s danger, you’ll protect them with your life.

WILDERNIS! VOORZICHTIG! (Vertaling van het liedje ‘Busbusi! Safsafri!’)

Ik ben bang!

Wildernis! Voorzichtig!
Wildernis! Voorzichtig!
Loop met wijsheid!
Aha

Ik let goed op.
Jij let goed op.
Wij letten goed op.
Open je ogen om te kijken!
De jaguar leeft daar.

Wildernis! Voorzichtig!
Wildernis! Voorzichtig!
Loop met wijsheid!
Aha

Ik was bang.
Jij was bang.
Wij waren bang.
Haal geen grappen uit!
De jaguar leeft daar.

Wildernis! Voorzichtig!
Wildernis! Voorzichtig!
Loop met wijsheid!
Aha

Oho, oho, oeh

Ik zal me verschuilen ergens.
Jij zult je verschuilen ergens.
Wij zullen ons verschuilen ergens.
Ga niet slapen!
De jaguars leven daar.

Wildernis! Voorzichtig!
Wildernis! Voorzichtig!
Loop met wijsheid!
Aha

Ik ben bang! Ik ben bang! Ik ben bang!
Ik wil leven.
Ga weg! Ga weg! Ga weg! Ga weg!
Weg! Weg! Weg! Weg!
Ga weg!

BUSBUSI! SAFSAFRI! (funny song in Sranan Tongo language)

A Tigri e Libi ini a Sranan Busbusi, English title: The Jaguar Lives in the Wilderness of Suriname.

The first part of the video plays a song in Sranan Tongo language. Sranan Tongo is the native language of my parents from Suriname, but I cannot speak this language. That’s why I mispronounce all words in this song. It’s so funny.

In the second part of the video I talk about protecting jaguars in the Amazon rainforest. The documentary part shows real jaguars in a zoo in the Netherlands.
