Hello, everyone. I hope that you and your family had a great Easter. This is just a short note that I have just set up another website at BenjiMartinNC.WordPress.com due to some difficulties with sharing posts from this one on Facebook and Instagram.
The new website will be for the purpose of promoting myself as a musician/songwriter as this one has been, but there is no need to worry about this one going away just yet because it will remain active during this period of transition.
Any further details about my career will be posted on the new website as well as here and on my social media outlets. Thank you very much for your support.
Hello, everyone! I’m sorry that I haven’t posted anything here in a while, but if you’ve been following my music pages on Facebook and Instagram, I’m sure that you know that I’m out playing at my open mic nights again. This past week, I didn’t play because I was under the weather and my voice still sounds crappy but is still recovering. Hopefully this week, I’ll be back. Also, speaking of FB and IG, they still won’t allow me to link this website to my pages on those apps, which pisses me off, and I have sent numerous messages to them asking why, but they still will not get back to me on that. For this reason, I will begin setting up a new website for my music sometime later this, so be on the lookout for it.
Thanks for your support, and God bless you!
Hello, everyone, and Happy Valentine’s Day! This is just a short note that I will be back playing at open mic nights not next week but the week after next, so get ready ‘cos we’re gonna have a good time once again! Thank you very much! Keep checking back here for update.
I got my licence today/Would you like to go on a date?/I can come pick you up at 8 if that’s alright/Maybe we can take a cruise/Up Highway 62/And have dinner at the drive-in off Eastchester Drive/Then we can go for the ride of our lives
With the cruise set at 65/ We’ll race down the Autobahn Of Love/So buckle up and hold on tight/We’ll rule the Autobahn Of Love
We’ll roll down I-85/Into Lexington tonight/And we’ll pull off somewhere ‘long Highway 8/Out in the summer breeze/We’ll make love beneath the trees/And I’ll have you home ‘fore it’s too late/Hey baby, what do you say
With the cruise set at 65/ We’ll race down the Autobahn Of Love/So take my hand and hold on tight/We’ll be the King and Queen of the Autobahn Of Love
With the cruise set at 65/ We’ll race down the Autobahn Of Love/So buckle up and hold on tight/We’ll rule the Autobahn Of Love/I said, take my hand and hold on tight/We’ll be the King and Queen of the Autobahn Of Love

Verse I The way you walked out on the dancefloor at the senior prom/Wearin’ your dress of virgin white really caught my eye/And your short pink hair stole the show for me/But the way you held me as we slow danced really impressed me
Chorus I Mary Jane/Open up the door to my heart/And come on in/Set up your residence/And be the queen of your castle
Verse II When we went to the drive-in movie last Friday night/We didn’t know that Gigli would suck, but it did/But your beautiful voice rang loudly as we sang “Somewhere Out There”/As it played on the radio ’til ev’ryone said, “Shut up!”
Chorus II Mary Jane, won’t you be my air/And let me breathe you in and out?/Extinguish this flame that burns inside my heart
Bridge Know that you’re the only girl I ever wanna know
Chorus III Mary Jane, I get down on my knee/And ask you to marry me/Will you spend the rest of your life with me?
REPEAT CHORUS I

Hello, everyone! How are you doing? I hope that you have had a Merry Christmas. 2018 has been a rough year for my family and myself due the death of my father which occurred just as I was planning my comeback to the open mic stage, but I am aiming to try again in 2019 because I love to share my music with people who are more than willing to listen to it. Also in the new year, I plan to have a new website up and running. Keep checking back here for more details.
Again, thank you so much for your continued support, and may God continue to bless you and your family.
