Mr Excitement



You know Jackie,

Even though I was born after you physically left this world

I just know from your aura,

that you were the ‘Man’

You oozed coolness in a era that personified ‘Cool’.

You lifted everybody Higher and Higher,

and even made lonely tears drop from people’s eyes.

Legend has it your concerts was pretty wild

earning the nickname ‘Mr Excitement’.

You dazzled, graced and stole

people’s hearts around the world,

I am so glad I came across your music,

My life became much more colourful, enriched and graceful

because of it.

You really were one amazing guy !



Jackie Wilson (09/06/1934-21/01/1984) Legendary singer-songwriter
