about

After disbanding the Gentle Soul, Pamela went on to record two solo albums of completely original music for Columbia Records in the early 1970's. In a life-long tradition of surrounding herself with world-class talent, Pamela's first solo album was produced by George Daly and featured the likes of Nicky Hopkins on piano, a special guest appearance by the late Jimmy Spheeris and several cuts produced by Nashville's own Norbert Putman. This album is truly a musical journal of Pamela's personal life at that time.

Track Name: In My Imagination
In My Imagination
(Pamela Polland)

I was riding on the children's train that takes us through the zoo
And I saw somebody in the distance, and I thought that it was you
So I came runnin' up to greet you and to be recognized too
But then you slipped away from view, just like you always do.

But in my imagination you were real and how you found me
You came runnin' across that boundary, and then you threw your lovin' arms around me
And I slipped into this dizzy spell like a spinnin' ferris wheel
But in my imagination you were there and it was so real.

And I try to know what's goin' on and tell myself no lies
And then I'd think that you were behind me, and you'd take me by surprise
But I've played this game some times before, and now I'm getting wise
It's a daydream in disguise - that's all it is!

Oh, but in my imagination you were real and how you found me
You came runnin' across that boundary, and then you threw your lovin' arms around me
And I slipped into this dizzy spell like a spinnin' ferris wheel
But in my imagination, yes and in my imagination,
Can you imagine what was in my imagination?
Track Name: Out Of My Hands
Out Of My Hands
(Pamela Polland)

"If things weren't the way they are", that's what you said to me
"Then we would live together, yes, how happy we would be"
Our life is like a maze and we could go crazy trying to get free.

But it's out of my hands now, but still not out of my heart
It's out of my hands now, but still not out of my heart.

I think I should go back to my home town, it's not good for me to stay here
Oh, I've tried to be strong, but I'm getting weaker each day here
And life, well, it's like a maze and we could go crazy trying to get free.

But it's out of my hands now, but still not out of my heart
It's out of my hands now, but still not out of my heart.
And it's out of my hands now, yes and it's good to know that you love me
But it's out of my hands, but it's out of my hands,but it's out of my hands now
But it's still in my heart.
Track Name: Sing A Song Man
Sing-a-Song Man
(Pamela Polland)

Listen everybody to the sing-a-song man
He's takin' all the children to a sing-along land
And he'll touch you with his voice - it's far reaching
Cuz he's a soul soulful man (talkin' 'bout the sing-a-song man)

Why don't you lookit everybody at the twinkle in his eye (lookit)
Come on and lookit everybody cuz the twinkle doesn't lie (so look at it)
He's gonna touch you with the truth - it's far reaching
And he's a soul soulful man (talkin' 'bout the sing-a-song man)

And here's what he's singin' now.....
Whoa - whoa - yes I am
Yes he's singin' now
Whoa - whoa - yes I am
Well, I'm a sing-a-song man

Someday I'm gonna get me an old funky band (I been searchin')
I'm gonna travel 'cross the country make it sing-along land (I'm gonna find it)
All of the way from the Pacific Ocean straight on across to the Atlantic sand
Just like the sing-a-song, I'd just like ta sing a song, man

And we'll be singin' now.....
Whoa - whoa - yes I am
Everybody's singin'...
Whoa - whoa - yes I am
a- yes I am, a-yes I am!
Track Name: When I Got Home
When I Got Home
(Pamela Polland)

I was hoping when I got home there'd be a note that said you'd called
There'd even be a number where I could reach you later on
And of course, I would call you then, no matter how late I got in
And you would be still sleeping, but you'd be so glad to hear from me

Because you love me, you love me, you really love me
Because you love me, because you love me........

But I guess that I stayed out to long, or maybe no one else was home
To take the message down that you'd called
And besides that, we've only met, and I hardly know ya yet
Still, I get the feeling that you meant all those nice things you said.

And that you love me, (because you love me), yes I believe it,
Yes, I believe that you love me........

Oh, I really believe it, I know that you love me
Won't you please come and see me, I know that you need me
You love me........
I believe that you love me, yes, I believe it, I really believe that you love me...
Track Name: Please Mr DJ
Please Mr. DJ
(Pamela Polland)

Please Mr. DJ, play me a song,
Something romantic I can drift away on
Oh, I'm not alone when I turn my radio on.

Please Mr. DJ, play me a song,
Something real happy so I can have fun
Oh, I'm not alone when I turn my radio on.

Monday through Friday I work hard all week
But on Saturday morning, you comfort me, you comfort me

With someone else's words, and someone else's voice
Mr. DJ., speak to me by your careful choice
The records you play don't interfere
It's only you I hear.
Track Name: Abalone Dream
Abalone Dream
(Pamela Polland)

Well, I woke up this morning, it was an abalone day
I looked down at my magic ring, now, tell me what did it say?
It said, "Pamela, let's go up to the mountain, let's find a little mountain stream
And maybe we'll float down river in an abalone dream."

So, I went up to magic mountain and I walked all the way
Time didn't much matter, that's because time's got nothin' to say
Whoa, I found a little tricklin' river, now, I've got no reason to lie
I just built me a raft out of a make believe laugh, and I sailed off into the sky.

Oh yes, I did float down river
Oh yes, I did float down river
Oh yes, I did float down river
In an abalone dream

When some folks get lonely, and some folks get sad
I've got a simple song to make everybody glad
When some folks get gloomy and they can't figure why
I just get 'm to sing along and it makes everybody high

High like the mountain that's above my home town
High like the old days when we all sat around and
Held hands and joined voices, and sang songs all night
And got higher and higher in that good party life

And we sang, come to life, come to life, we can make a party out of livin'
Oh yes we sang, come to life, come to life, we can make a party out of livin'
Come to life, come to life, we can make a party out of livin'
Come to life, come to life, we can make a party out of livin'
Track Name: The Rescuer
The Rescuer
(Pamela Polland)

Well, I heard somebody callin' out to me
And they said, "won't you help me, won't you help me, please,
Because I'm standin' here in the darkness, and I can hardly see
And I need somebody to come and rescue me."

Well, the night was hollow and the night was long
But i could not tell where this man went wrong
I had to find my way in the darkness, but I could hardly see
I needed somebody to come and rescue me.

Don't let your brother pull you into the Darkness
What's the good of two men being lost in the night
Reach out your loving hand and pull him back in to safety, man
Don't go too far and step out of the Light,
Or you might need a rescuer.

Shine a little light, shine a little light in the darkness
And help the blind to finally see
If somebody's locked up, be a rescuer and go get the key!!

Don't let your brother pull you into the Darkness
What's the good of two men being lost in the night
Reach out your loving hand and pull him back in to safety, man
Don't go too far and step out of the Light,
Or you might need a rescuer.
Oh, yes you will!

Now, now's the time to be a rescuer
Now, now's the time to be a rescuer
Don't, don'tcha get lost, or you might need a rescuer
Track Name: Sugar Dad
Sugar Dad
(Pamela Polland)

Sugar Daddy, Sugar Daddy, Daddy, you're so fine
I'm talkin' 'bout my Sugar Daddy, whoa sugar!, Sugar Daddy you're so fine.

Buy me a red dress and bring it all the way from France
I'm gonna get you a ticket for the front row, daddy, so you can watch me do my sexy dance

I'm talkin' 'bout my Sugar Daddy,Sugar Sugar Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, you're so fine
Whoa, so fine.

Keep on livin', but sometimes it's hard to tell what's right from wrong
But you know I'll be so glad, long as I've got my Sugar Dad
To keep me hangin' on, to keep me havin' fun, fun.
Oh, I wanna have a little fun, fun.

Sugar Daddy, Sugar Sugar Daddy, Sugar Daddy, you're so fine

Call you up on the telephone, ("Hello, Pamela"), next Friday night)
Gonna make sure that you're feelin' good, I'm gonna
Set things right - between us.....

Sugar Daddy, Sugar Sugar Daddy, Sugar Daddy, you're so fine
Oh, I'm singin' "You're so fine"

Dit dit dit dit you're so fine, Sugar Daddy, you're so fine
I'm singin' dit dit dit dit you're so fine, Sugar Daddy, you're so fine
Track Name: The Dream
The Dream (For Karuna)
(Pamela Polland)

Me and Sister K., well, we danced till dawn, wrapped in some lovers' arms
Danced into a dream, and the dream went on, after the dance was done
We were in a garden, and they came to say that our time was almost through
So, we went running, just to keep the dream alive
We were keepin' the dream alive

Me and Sister K, whose lovely name I'll just have to sing in some other song
Dance into a dream and the dream's still going on and on and on and on
But isn't dreaming just a way that we all make our fairy tales come true
And even if it's just to keep the dream alive
Let's keep the dream alive

Me and Sister K., well, we danced till dawn,
Danced, danced into a dream, and the dream's still going on, waiting for love to come
While we all make our fairy tales come true
Keeping the dream alive
Let's keep the dream alive

(Pamela whistles into the dream.......)
Track Name: Texas
Texas
(Pamela Polland)

Texas, I hardly have seen you at all
Just on cross-country flights
And in traveling rock & roll shows
Texas, I've seen you in some mighty strange places
Once I even saw you in Colorado

But Texas, I feel like I know you
Though maybe not too well
Wish I'd thought to get a silver dollar souvenier
So, I could say, "well, I've been there."

Once when I thought you were coming to take me
I held my head high so the whole world could see
Flying on the wings of my own expectations
I lost sight of any plans that you had for me

But listen, Texas, I feel like I know you
Though maybe not too well
Now you have gone, but the love lingers on
And I sit at home with this song.

Take me with you, Texas
Please, take me with you.......

I stayed up til dawn to watch the new world come on
But all that came was this song.
