The “Have You Never Been Mellow” Jumble

Artist Statement
by Jason Larsen

Samuel Corales, the instructor of the current Interactive Creative Writing class, asked us to take a song and then jumble them up in spoken word form in a way that means something to us. This is mine.

Have you never been happy
Just to hear your song?
Have you never let someone else be strong?

Have you never been mellow?
Have you never tried
To find a comfort from inside you?

There was a time
When I was in a hurry as you are
I was like you
There was a day
When I just had to tell my point of view
I was like you

Running around as you do
With your head up in the clouds
I was like you
Never had time to lay back
Kick your shoes off, close your eyes
I was like you

Now I don’t mean to make you frown
No, I just want you to slow down

Now you’re not hard to understand
You need someone to take your hand, hey

Have you never been mellow?
Have you never tried
To find a comfort from inside you?

Have you never been happy
Just to hear your song?
Have you never let someone else be strong?

The song was originally sung by Olivia Newton-John on an album of the same name. Credit goes to John Farrar, who wrote it.
