Certainly a lady

I wrote this song last night, let me know what you think. When I've made enough new songs, I intend to pick the best and record them properly for an album, so your input is much appreciated!

When I was younger I wanted to dance with you,

I wanted romance too,

Oooh I wanted, ooh ooh I wanted you.

She said I could be an astronaut if I wanted to,

You could be a millionaire if you really care,

Oh yeah, oooooh yeah.

When I was 18, she was a beauty queen,

She was pretty and fiesty but obscenely mean,

but oooh I wanted you.

The beauty queen's a dreamer, but her dreams are my nightmares,

She's certainly a lady, drunk falling down my stairs,

Oh no, ooooooh ooooh no.

She said I could be an astronaut if I wanted to,

You could be a millionaire if you really care,

Oh yeah, oooooh yeah.

The girl in the polka dot dress is the one I want,

The way that she doesn't care, the way that she does her hair,

She knows how to play the game and to entertain,

And when it's late at might, she gives me a gentle bite,

Oooooh no.... oohhh nooo.

Now I'm older I don't want romance no more,

I just want to dance some more,

Ooooh I want ya, ooooh I want you.

'Call the Curtain' on Ticket Touts!

Extreme demand for tickets to see the ‘King of Pop’ perform in his ‘This Is It!’ concerts at London’s O2 Arena, has lead to concerns that ticket touts are once again cashing in.
More than a million tickets for the This Is It! were shifted as all 50 of Michael Jackson’s concerts at London’s O2 Arena completely sold out on Friday.
360,000 presale tickets sold out in record time, with the general snapping up the remaining tickets immediately on Friday. Yet the term ‘general public’ may perhaps not be quite as ‘general’ as the true fans would hope.
The problem of ticket touting in the UK is still rife and there seems to be little done to ensure that those purchasing the tickets are not buying to simply re-sell for profit. It would be nice to see more event organizers adopting a ticketing policy like that of Glastonbury festival, which requires photo ID when registering to buy the tickets and then also when attending the event. This policy really does help to ensure that the people who actually want to go to the event have the opportunity to go without having to pay ridiculous prices to ticket touts who are effectively robbing passionate fans. What do you think?
