The old man was covered with tattoos and scars
He got some in prison and others in bars
The rest he got working' on old junk cars
In the daytime
They looked like tombstones in our yard
And I never seen him when he wasn't tired and mean
He sold used parts to make ends meet
Covered with grease from his head to his feet
Cussing' the sweat and the texas heat
And skeeterz
And the neighbors said we lived like hicks
But they brung their cars for pa to fix anyhow
He was veteran-proud, tried and true
He'd fought till his heart was black and blue
Didn't know how he'd made it through the hard times

He bought our house on the g.i. bill
But it wasn't worth all he had to kill to get it
He drank pearl in a can and jack daniels black
Chewed tobacco from a mail pouch sack
Had an old dog that was trained to attack
Sometimes
He'd get drunk and mean as a rattlesnake
And there wasn't too much
That he would take from a stranger

There were thirteen kids and a bunch of dogs
A house full of chickens and a yard full of hogs
I spent the summertime cutting' up logs for the winter
Trying' like the devil to find the lord
Working' like a bleep for my room and board
Coal-burin' stove, no natural gas
If that ain't country, I'll kiss your ass

If that ain't country,
It'll hair lip the pope
If that ain't country, it's a damn good joke
I've seen the grand ole opry,
And I've met johnny cash
If that ain't country, I'll kiss your ass

Mama sells eggs at a grocery store
My oldest sister is a first-rate whore
Dad says she can't come home anymore
And he means it
Ma just sits and keeps her silence
Sister, she left 'cause dad got violent
And he knows it
Mama she's old far beyond her time
From chopping tobacco and I've seen her crying'
When blood started flowing' from her calloused hand and

It hurt me
She'd just keep working' trying' to help the old man
To the end of one row and back again like always
She's been through hell since junior went to jail
When the lights go out she ain't never failed
To get down on her knees and pray
Because she loves him
Told all the neighbors he was off in the war
Fighting' for freedom,
He's good to the core and she's proud
Now our place was a graveyard for automobiles
At the end of the porch there was four stacks of wheels
And tires for sale for a dollar or two
Cash

There was fifty holes in an old tin roof
Me and my family we was living' proof
The people who forgot about poor white trash
And if that ain't country, I'll kiss your ass
If that ain't country, it'll hair lip the pope
If that ain't country, it's a damn good joke
I've seen the grand ole opry,
And I've met johnny cash
If that ain't country, I'll kiss your ass
I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes
Concerning the great speckled bird
I didn't know god made honky-tonk angels
And went back to the wild side of life

For Jim RIP


I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps
I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you
I look at the world and I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps
I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No one alerted you
I look at you all see the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
Look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps
Oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, oh, ooh

Well I met her out at Murphy's restaurant
She said she was fresh from the farm
And I remember thinkin' for a country girl
That she went pretty well armed
We sat there talkin' by the lobster tank
I ordered her a sloe gin fizz
And when them chicken fried steaks arrived
She said I like living like this

So I made her the queen of my double wide trailer
With the polyester curtains and the redwood deck
NOW she's run off and I've got to trail her
Dang her black heart and her pretty red neck

Well a few nights later I run into her
With some stranger on a park bench
She said he rebuilds engines and his name is Earl
He's the Charlie Daniels of the torque wrench
I whispered honey let's just go on home
And have some onion rings and watch TV
And as I walked her to the truck
Earl was cryin' don't you leave me
I told him

This here's the queen of my double wide trailer
With the polyester curtains and the redwood deck
Sometimes shes runs and I've got to trail her
Dang her black heart and her pretty red neck

The preacher man says it's the end of time
And the Mississippi River she's a goin' dry
The interest is up and the Stock Markets down
And you only get mugged if you go down town

I live back in the woods, you see
A woman and the kids, and the dogs, and me
I got a shotgun, a rifle, and a 4-wheel drive
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

I can plow a field all day long
I can catch catfish from dusk 'til dawn
We make our own whiskey and our own smoke, too
Ain't too many things these ole boys can't do
We grow good ole tomatoes and homemade wine
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

Because you can't starve us out
And you can't make us run
'Cause one-of-'em old boys raised on shotgun
And we say grace and we say Ma'am
And if you ain't into that we don't give a damn

We came from the West Virginia coal mines
And the Rocky Mountains and the and the western skies
And we can skin a buck; we can run a trotline
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

I had a good friend in New York City
He never called me by my name, just hillbilly
My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
And his taught him to be a businessman
He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
And I'd send him some homemade wine

But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
I'd love to spit some beech nut in that dude's eyes
And shoot him with my old 45
'Cause a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

'Cause you can't starve us out and you can't make us run
'Cause one-of-'em old boys raised on shotgun
And we say grace and we say Ma'am
And if you ain't into that we don't give a damn

We're from North California and south Alabama
And little towns all around this land
And we can skin a buck; we can run a trotline
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive

To the tune of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"

The restroom door said gentleman so I just walked inside,
I took two steps and realized I've been taken for a ride.
I heard high voices, turned and found the place was occupied,
By two nuns, three old ladies and a nurse.
What could be worse?
Than two nuns, three old ladies and a nurse.

The restroom door said gentleman it must have been a gag,
As soon as I walked in there I ran into some old hag.
She sprayed me with a can of mace and smacked me with her bag,
I could tell, this just wouldn't be my day.
What can I say?
It just wasn't turning out to be my day.

The restroom door said gentleman and I'd would like to find,
The crummy little creep who had the nerve to switch the signs.
'Cause I've got two black eyes and one high heel up my behind,
Now I can't, sit with comfort and joy.
Boy oh boy.
No, I'll never sit with comfort and joy.

Auld Lang Syne by Robert Burns

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
And auld lang syne?

Chorus:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pu'd the gowans fine,
But we've wander'd mony a weary fit
Sin auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl't in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roar'd
Sin auld lang syne.

And there's a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie's a hand o' thine,
And we'll tak a right guid willie-waught
For auld lang syne!

And surely ye'll be your pint' stowp,
And surely I'll be mine,
And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet
For auld lang syne!

Translation:

Should old acquaintances be forgotten,
And never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintances be forgotten,
And days of long ago !

Chorus:
For old long ago, my dear
For old long ago,
We will take a cup of kindness yet
For old long ago.

We two have run about the hillsides
And pulled the daisies fine,
But we have wandered many a weary foot
For old long ago.

We two have paddled (waded) in the stream
From noon until dinner time,
But seas between us broad have roared
Since old long ago.

And there is a hand, my trusty friend,
And give us a hand of yours,
And we will take a goodwill draught (of ale)
For old long ago!

And surely you will pay for your pint,
And surely I will pay for mine!
And we will take a cup of kindness yet
For old long ago!

"It's Just Another New Year's Eve"

Don't look so sad,
It's not so bad you know.
It's just another night,
That's all it is.
It's not the first,
It's not the worst you know,
We've come through all the rest,
We'll get through this.

We've made mistakes,
But we've made good friends too.
Remember all the nights we spent with them?
And all our plans,
Who says they can't come true?
Tonight's another chance to start again.

It's just another New Year's Eve,
Another night like all the rest.
It's just another New Year's Eve,
Let's make it the best.
It's just another New Year's Eve,
It's just another Auld Lang Syne,
But when we're through this New Year
You'll see, will be
Just fine.

We're not alone, we've got the world you know.
And it won't let us down, just wait and see.
And we'll grow old, but think how wise we'll grow.
There's more you know, it's only New Year's Eve.

It's just another New Year's Eve,
Another night like all the rest.
It's just another New Year's Eve,
Let's make it the best.
It's just another New Year's Eve,
It's just another Auld Lang Syne,
But when we're through this New Year, you'll see, will be
Just fine.

"What Are You Doing New Year's Eve"

When the bells all ring and the horns all blow
And the couples we know are fondly kissing.
Will I be with you or will I be among the missing?

Maybe it's much too early in the game
Ooh, but I thought I'd ask you just the same
What are you doing New Year's
New Year's eve?

Wonder whose arms will hold you good and tight
When it's exactly twelve o'clock that night
Welcoming in the New Year
New Year's eve

Maybe I'm crazy to suppose
I'd ever be the one you chose
Out of a thousand invitations
You received

Ooh, but in case I stand one little chance
Here comes the jackpot question in advance:
What are you doing New Year's
New Year's Eve?

I'm a sad clown
Been a fool
She colored my feelings
Midnight blue

She grew up in
A cold-hearted town
A desperate girl
And highway bound
She married young
Dropped out of school
Full of fire
A woman too soon

And I'm a sad clown, ya
Been a fool
She colored my feelings
Midnight blue

I met her in a small town bar
Drinkin' beer and playin' guitar
She had no money
Livin' on the streets
She gave me her love
Wasn't for keeps

I'm a sad clown
Been a fool
Been stepped on
By the likes of you
Look out

I still see her
From time to time
Hotel hoppin'
Drinkin' every man's wine
From innocence to guilt
In any human's eyes
But God I loved her
Be kind when she dies

I'm a sad clown
Been a fool
She colored my feelings
Midnight blue

It's five O'clock, just got paid
I'll be off the next two days
No more workin' like dogs
No more leash, no more boss

I got a weekend of nothin' to do at all
Yee haw!

I know a place down the road
The girls are hot, the beer is cold
It's two-for-one, yeah, that's right
Not just drinks, it's girls to guys

I hear the twins are back in town from Saginaw
Yee haw!

You take your all-right, you take your can't-wait
A lotta of bring-it-on and some damn straight
And mix it all up with some down home southern drawl, y'all
You got your yee haw!

The place is packed, the line is long
The band knows every Haggard song
I'm gettin' loose, I've had a few
She wants to dance, I do too

But her boyfriend's mad, I, I think he wants to brawl
All right, yee haw!

You take your all-right, you take your can't-wait
A lotta of bring-it-on and some damn straight
And mix it all up with some down home southern drawl, y'all
You got your yee haw!

I'm talkin' big time, I mean saddle up ad hold on tight
And if you know what I'm talkin' about, y'all, yeah
How about a yee haw! Ha, ha
Yep, bow bow, Y E E H A W, yee haw!

Guess who just got back today?
Them wild-eyed boys that had been away
Haven't changed, haven't much to say
But man, I still think them cats are great

They were asking if you were around
How you was, where you could be found
I told them you were living downtown
Driving all the old men crazy

The boys are back in town

You know the chick that used to dance a lot
Every night she'd be on the floor shaking what she'd got
Man when I tell you she was cool, she was red hot
I mean she was steaming

That time over at Johnny's place
Well this chick got up and she slapped Johnny's face
Man we just fell about the place
If that chick don't want to know, forget her

The boys are back in town

Spread the word around
The boys are back in town

Friday night they'll be dressed to kill
Down at Dino's bar and grill
The drink will flow and blood will spill
If the boys want to fight, you'd better let them

That jukebox in the corner blasting out my favorite song
The nights are getting warmer, it won't be long
It won't be long till summer comes
Now that the boys are here again

The boys are back in town

Who can turn the world on with her smile?
Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?
Well it's you girl, and you should know it
With each glance and every little movement you show it

Love is all around, no need to waste it
You can have a town, why don't you take it
You're gonna make it after all
You're gonna make it after all

How will you make it on your own?
This world is awfully big, girl this time you're all alone
But it's time you started living
It's time you let someone else do some giving

Love is all around, no need to waste it
You can have a town, why don't you take it
You're gonna make it after all
You're gonna make it after all

You Bet Your Sweet Bippy

When I was a little boy, my mama cornered me. She asked me why I was so bad, I answered simply...baby

“You bet your sweet bippy I'm a hippy hippy hippy and I dig doin simply nothin but rollin in the grass bare, takin trips in the air, pickin lint from my belly button.”

Hip, hip, hip I’m a hippy. You bet your sweet bippy I’m a hippy yeah.

One day I should have been at school, got caught downtown instead. My principal asked why my hair grew so far from my head...I said

“You bet your sweet bippy I'm a hippy hippy hippy and I dig doin simply nothin but rollin in the grass bare, takin trips in the air, pickin lint from my belly button.”

Hip, hip, hip I’m a hippy. You bet your sweet bippy I’m a hippy yeah.

Now, I got a chick who spreads her love all over me. She got along the day I told her very tenderly...tenderly.

“You bet your sweet bippy I'm a hippy hippy hippy and I dig doin simply nothin but rollin in the grass bare, takin trips in the air, pickin lint from my belly button.”

Hip, hip, hip I’m a hippy. You bet your sweet bippy I’m a hippy yeah.

You were the first thing that I thought of
When I thought I drank you off my mind
When I get lost in the liquor
You're the only one I find

If I did the things I oughta
You still would not be mine
So I'll keep a tight grip on the bottle
Gettin' loose and killin' time

This killin' time is killin' me
Drinking myself blind thinkin' I won't see
That if I cross that line and they bury me
Well, I just might find I'll be killin' time for eternity

I don't know nothin' 'bout tomorrow
I've been lost in yesterday



I've spent all my life just dying
For a love that passed away

There's an end to all my sorrow
This is the only price I'll pay
I'll be a happy man when I go
And I can't wait another day

This killin' time is killin' me
Drinking myself blind thinkin' I won't see
That if I cross that line and they bury me
Well, I just might find I'll be killin' time for eternity
Yes, I just might find I'll be killin' time for eternity

She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind
Until the night

He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away her memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
We found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said I'll love her till I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby

The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind
Until the night

She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby

On the turning away
From the pale and downtrodden
And the words they say
Which we won't understand

"Don't accept that what's happening
Is just a case of others' suffering
Or you'll find that you're joining in
The turning away"

It's a sin that somehow
Light is changing to shadow
And casting it's shroud
Over all we have known

Unaware how the ranks have grown
Driven on by a heart of stone
We could find that we're all alone
In the dream of the proud

On the wings of the night
As the daytime is stirring
Where the speechless unite
In a silent accord

Using words you will find are strange
And mesmerized as they light the flame
Feel the new wind of change
On the wings of the night

No more turning away
From the weak and the weary

No more turning away
From the coldness inside
Just a world that we all must share
It's not enough just to stand and stare

Is it only a dream that there'll be
No more turning away?

Tin Omen

every truncheon hit
misguided the peoples army
divided united stance
amped out war dance
what a ride
inner thought of non violent rebellion
outside dare to die stand and fight
show faith
return all the weapons
government says use them
right fixed action
set in motion
doubting amnesia potion what to hide
red carpet ride
guessing right
the jokes on dark corner
the square
you bath once a week
distorted the viewpoint
seldom seen
wayback in 68
ohio kent state
was nothing so great
have or have not
forcing the point
shot in the back
take it back down
trod soldier away
flower power within
kill me kill this
way of life and be known
one by one they'll be coming down
altogether
sister machine gun
automatic high
what a ride
what a trip
tripped over the candlestick
tanks arrive
fire wall
got to keep the camera alive
tell the world whats going on here
warning shots are fired at the stomach
chest wound
coed falls
amped out amped out
changing guns for brooms
the guards change to clean up crews
way back in 68
every thing was so great
no way
wrong date
keep up the trade
balanced charade
close circuit truth
used to remove
keep the camera alive

Where’s the Groundhog?

I was walking in the park the other day
It was so cold, I wished it was May
I heard nothing but the wind
I thought the animals were hibernatin’

In the snow, I saw some tracks here
From their shapes they were made by a deer
A hollow log lay on the ground
And in its hole a skunk can be found

I saw all kinds of tracks everywhere
Those of skunks and squirrels, and I got to stare
At a raccoon sleeping up in a tree
But it’s a groundhog I want to see

I used the trashcan, like we all should
Inside a ‘possum was eating what he could
I got this thought in my head
Why wasn’t he just playin’ dead?

I guess most mammals don’t hibernate
Only a few have to, or meet their fate
Winter can be both a friend and a foe
But where’s the groundhog?
I want to know

It’s hibernating underground
‘Cause for groundhog there’s no food to be found
It’s hibernating underground
‘Cause for groundhog there’s no food to be found

Instrumental

It’s hibernating underground
Its breathing has slowed way down
It’s hibernating underground
Its heart hardly makes a sound (repeat)

No food to be found whoa
No food to be found whoa

And I've lived a dozen lifetimes in twenty-some-odd years
Got no use for trouble, got no use for tears
Can't you see it's killing me, I'm old before my time
I won't let you double the pain of a troubled life

I've had my share of sorrow, more than you could know
Save your lies and alibis, I've heard that tune before
Can't you see it's killing me, I'm old before my time
I won't let you double the pain of a troubled life

You're out all night, asleep all day, so pack it up and leave
I've got no use for trouble, trouble's using me
Don't you see my love won't be forever deaf and blind
I won't let you double the pain of a troubled life

I've had my share of sorrow, more than you could know
Save your lies and alibis, I've heard that tune before
Can't you see it's killing me, I'm old before my time

Can't you see that love can't be forever deaf and blind?

Hey there, how are 'ya?
It's been a long time
Seems like we've come a long way
My, but we learn so slow
And heroes, they come and they go
And leave us behind as if
We're supposed to know why

Why do we give up our hearts to the past?
And why must we grow up so fast?

And all you wishing well fools with your fortunes
Someone should send you a rose
With love from a friend,
It's nice to hear from you again
And the storybook comes to a close
Gone are the ribbons and bows
Things to remember, places to go
Pretty maids all in a row

Ooo ooo ooo
Ooo ooo ooo
Ooo ooo ooo
Ooo ooo ooo

Ooo ooo ooo
Ooo ooo ooo
Ooo ooo ooo
Ooo ooo ooo

All day I've faced a barren waste
Without the taste of water, cool water
Old Dan and I with throats burned dry
And souls that cry for water
Cool, clear, water

The nights are cool and I'm a fool
Each star's a pool of water
Cool water
And with the dawn I'll wake and yawn
And carry on to water
Cool, clear, water

Keep a-movin, Dan, dontcha listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
And he spreads the burning sand with water
Dan, can ya see that big, green tree?
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waiting there for you and me? Water
Cool, clear, water

The shadows sway and seem to say
Tonight we pray, for water
Cool water

And way up there, He'll hear our prayer
And show us where there's water
Cool, clear, water

Keep a-movin, Dan, dontcha listen to him, Dan
He's a devil, not a man
And he spreads the burning sand with water
Dan, can ya see that big, green tree?
Where the water's runnin' free
And it's waitin' there for you and me?

Cool, clear, water
Cool, clear, water

A bunch of the boys were whoopin’ it up
At the Malamute Café
And the ragtime kid at the music box
Was a jazzin' a tune that was gay
And back of the bar in a poker game
Sat a man that everyone knew
He was grim and cold, he was bad and bold
He was dangerous Dan McGrew

And while dangerous Dan was a-playin’ his hand
And keeping his mind on his game
You could see standing by with a gleam in her eye
And her hair just as red as a flame
A gal who was tall, with a face like a doll
And her fingernails painted blue
Oh, a gal who was tall, with a face like a doll
The lady that’s known as Lou

Then out of the night which was fifty below
And into the din and the glare
A man staggered in who was haggard and thin
And his face was filled with despair
Now he looked all around until he had found
The lady that’s known as Lou
And then the stranger turned
And his eyes they burned
On dangerous Dan McGrew

Then suddenly wham! All the lights went out
And a voice cried “Die, you must!”
And then a woman screamed and a shot rang out
And somebody bit the dust
And then the lights flashed on
And the north-west mounted police
Came a-crashin’ through
They drew their guns and they said
“Which one is dangerous Dan McGrew?”

And then somebody said “well hi there!”
And skipped across the floor
A-one, two, skip, hand on hip
Right out through the open door
Now was it the stranger a-takin’ his leave?
Or the lady that’s known as Lou?
It was nobody else in this whole wide world
But dangerous Dan McGrew

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

Three, four...
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
What are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
It's not your fault
They won't take you to the vet
You're obviously not their favorite pet
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
It's not your fault
You may not be a bed of roses
You're not friend to those with noses
I'll miss you before we're done
Or the world will smell as one
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
What are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat
It's not your fault
(Phoebe) Oh are we done?
One, two, what's that smell?
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
What are they feeding you?
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat
You're getting fat
I think that I'm gonna be sick
It's your ears, and nose and pick
Part of it, tempt me
One, two, what's that smell?
All the dogs in the neighborhood
Are saying this for your own good
What, you're fat, so you can't run
No fun, I bet, No fun
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
Porno makes you eat like that
I saw you in the shopping mall
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
It's not your fault,
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
It's not your fault
Smelly Cat, Smelly Cat,
It's not your fault
We know what was in your food
They say it might affect your mood
You smell like something dead (3x)
One, two, what's that smell?
(Phoebe)Yeah, that's not the song

I remember to this day, the bright red Georgia clay
How it stuck to the tires after the summer rain
Will power made that old car go, a woman's mind told me that it's so
Oh, how I wish we were back on the road again

Me and you and a dog named Boo
Travellin' and livin' off the land
Me and you and a dog named Boo
How I love bein' a free man

I can still recall the wheat fields of St. Paul
And the mornin' we got caught robbin' from an old hen
Old Mac Donald made us work, but then he paid us for what it was worth
Another tank of gas and back on the road again


Me and you and a dog named Boo
Travellin' and livin' off the land
Me and you and a dog named Boo
How I love bein' a free man

I'll never forget that day we motored stately into big L.A.
The lights of the city put settlin' down in my brain
Though it's only been a month or so, that old car's buggin' us to go
You gotta get away and get back on the road again

Me and you and a dog named Boo
Travellin' and livin' off the land
Me and you and a dog named Boo
How I love bein' a free man

Goats are clever, Goats are wise
They've got four legs, they've got two eyes
Goats eat anything from fillet steak to oats
They're not as fussy as ferrets or stoats

They can climb, climb high mountains
They don't need crampons or ropes
They're worthy and sturdy
better built than antelopes

Goats are clever, goats are smart
They don't drink cyder and they never fart
Goats wear coats thick and hairy
They don't wear bras, they're not fairies

They can swim, swim wide rivers
They can climb the highest trees
They wear bells around their necks
oooooooooooooohhh... Jealous me.

Goats are clever, goats think big
They're not pooftas', they don't wear wigs
They're more fierce and nasty than any Fegg
They build big nests & fill them with turds

Goats, goats, they're supreme
They live in the wind and rain
How I'd love to be a goat
If I were born again

The Moody Blues
Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war?
'Cause when we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need
In a world of persecution that is burning in its greed
Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door
Because the truth is hard to swallow
That's what the war of love is for
It's not the way that you say it
When you do those things to me
It's more the way that you mean it
When you tell me what will be
And when you stop and think about it
You won't believe it's true
That all the love you've been giving
Has all been meant for you
I'm looking for someone to change my life
I'm looking for a miracle in my life
And if you could see what it's done to me
To lose the love I knew
Could safely lead me through
Between the silence of the mountains
And the crashing of the sea
There lies a land I once lived in
And she's waiting there for me
But in the Grey of the morning
My mind becomes confused
Between the dead and the sleeping
And the road that I must choose
I'm looking for someone to change my life
I'm looking for a miracle in my life
And if you could see what it's done to me
To lose the love I knew
Could safely lead me to
The land that I once knew
To learn as we grow old
The secrets of our soul
It's not the way that you say it when you do those things to me
It's more the way you really mean it when you tell me what will be
Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door
With a thousand million questions
About hate and death and war
'Cause when we stop and look around us
There is nothing that we need
In a world of persecution that is burning in its greed
Why do we never get an answer
When we're knocking at the door

You went away and left me long time ago
And now your knocking on my door
I hear you knockin'
But you can't come in
I hear you knockin'
Go back where you been

I begged you not to go but you said goodbye
And now your telling me all your lies
I hear you knockin'
But you can't come in
I hear you knockin'
Go back where you been

You better get back to your used to be
'Cause your kind of love ain't good for me
I hear you knockin'
But you can't come in
I hear you knockin'
Go back where you been

I told you way back in '52
That I would never go with you
I hear you knockin'
But you can't come in
I hear you knockin'
Go back where you been

I hear you knockin'
But you can't come in
I hear you knockin'
Go back where you been

I hear you knockin'
But you can't come in
I hear you knockin'
Go back where you been,.....Yeah

"Knock Three Times"

Hey girl, whatcha doin' down there?
Dancin' alone every night while I live right above you
I can hear your music playin', I can feel your body swayin'
One floor below me, you don't even know me, I love you

Oh my darlin'
Knock three times on the ceilin' if you want me
Twice on the pipe if the answer is no
Oh, my sweetness means you'll meet me in the hallway
Twice on the pipe means you ain't gonna show

If you look out your window tonight
Pull in the string with the note attached to my heart
Read how many times I saw and how in my silence I adore you
Only in my dreams the wall between us was apart

Oh my darlin'
Knock three times on the ceilin' if you want me
Twice on the pipe if the answer is no
Oh, my sweetness means you'll meet me in the hallway
Twice on the pipe means you ain't gonna show

Oh, I can hear the music playin'
I can feel your body swayin'
One floor below me, you don't even know me, I love you

Oh my darlin'
Knock three times on the ceilin' if you want me
Twice on the pipe if the answer is no
(I love you, I love you, I love you)
Oh, my sweetness means you'll meet me in the hallway
Twice on the pipe means you ain't gonna show

Oh my darlin'
Knock three times on the ceilin' if you want me
Twice on the pipe if the answer is no
(I love you, I love you, I love you)
Oh, my sweetness means you'll meet me in the hallway
Twice on the pipe means you ain't gonna show

Mama, take this badge from me
I can't use it anymore
It's getting dark, too dark to see
Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door

Mama, put my guns in the ground
I can't shoot them anymore
That cold black cloud is comin' down
Feels like I'm knockin' on heaven's door

Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door
Knock-knock-knockin' on heaven's door

And now I know
Spanish Harlem are not just pretty words to say
I thought I knew
But now I know that rose trees never grow
In New York City
Until you've seen this trash can dream come true
You stand at the edge while people run you through
And I thank the Lord
There's people out there like you
I thank the Lord there's people out there like you
While Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters
Sons of bankers, sons of lawyers
Turn around and say good morning to the night
For unless they see the sky
But they can't and that is why
They know not if it's dark outside or light
This Broadway's got
It's got a lot of songs to sing
If I knew the tunes I might join in
I'll go my way alone
Grow my own, my own seeds shall be sown, in New York City
Subway's no way for a good man to go down
Rich man can ride and the hobo he can drown
And I thank the Lord for the people I have found
I thank the Lord for the people I have found
While Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters
Sons of bankers, sons of lawyers
Turn around and say good morning to the night
For unless they see the sky
But they can't and that is why
They know not if it's dark outside or light
And now I know
Spanish Harlem are not just pretty words to say
I thought I knew
But now I know that rose trees never grow
In New York City
Subway's no way for a good man to go down
Rich man can ride and the hobo he can drown
And I thank the Lord for the people I have found
I thank the Lord for the people I have found
While Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters
Sons of bankers, sons of lawyers
Turn around and say good morning to the night
For unless they see the sky
But they can't and that is why
They know not if it's dark outside or light
They know not if it's dark outside or light

The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows when
But I'm strong
Strong enough to carry him
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

So on we go
His welfare is of my concern
No burden is he to bear
We'll get there
For I know
He would not encumber me
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

If I'm laden at all
I'm laden with sadness
That everyone's heart
Isn't filled with the gladness
Of love for one another

It's a long, long road
From which there is no return
While we're on the way to there
Why not share
And the load
Doesn't weigh me down at all
He ain't heavy, he's my brother

He's my brother
He ain't heavy, he's my brother...

Sometimes I can't move my feet it seems
As if I'm stuck in the ground somehow like a tree
As if I can't even breathe
And my screams come whispering out
As if nobody can even see me
Like a ghost
I can't see myself sometimes

Then again if I were a king
If I had everything
If I had you
And I could give you your dreams
If I were giant size
On top of it all
Tell me what in the world would I sing for
If I had it

Sometimes I feel lost
As I pull you out like strings of memories
Wish I could weave them into you
And I could figure the whole damn puzzle out

But then again if I were a king
If I had everything
If I had you
And I could give you your dreams
If I were giant size
On top of it all
Tell me then what I would sing for
If I had it all

Oh
I could take anything
If I had no greed to big
Just poison tainting the green

Remembering time
Much younger than me now
When my breath was light
When the world raised me kind
Here the mother comforts child
Every moment was waking up
But now I have grown tired

If I had it all
I'd Mentos it up

If I were a king
If I had everything
If I had you
And I could give you your dreams
If I were giant size
On top of it all
Tell me what in the world would I sing for

If I were a king
If I had everything
Piece by piece
If had you
If I could give you your dreams
If I were giant size
On top of it all
Then why in the world would I sing
If I had it all

TV dinners there's nothin' else to eat
TV dinners they really can't be beat
I like 'em frozen but you understand
I throw 'em in and wave 'em and I'm a brand new man oh yeah!

TV dinners they're goin' to my head
TV dinners my skin is turnin' red
Twenty year old turkey in a thirty year old tin
I can't wait until tomorrow.... and thaw one out again oh yeah!

TV dinners I'm feelin' kinda rough
TV dinners this one's kinda tough
I like the enchiladas and the teriaki too
I even like the chicken if.... the sauce is not too blue.

And they're mine, all mine, oh yeah
and they sure are fine.
Gotta have 'em
gimme somethin' now.

Step one, you say we need to talk
He walks, you say sit down, it's just a talk
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left, and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came
Where did I go wrong?
I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
Let him know that you know best
Cause after all, you do know best
Try to slip past his defense
Without granting innocence
Lay down a list of what is wrong
The things you've told him all along
And pray to God he hears you
And I pray to God he hears you
Where did I go wrong?
I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
As he begins to raise his voice
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
Drive until you lose the road
Or break with the ones you've followed
He will do one of two things
He will admit to everything
Or he'll say he's just not the same
And you'll begin to wonder why you came
Where did I go wrong?
I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
Where did I go wrong?
I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
How to save a life
How to save a life
Where did I go wrong?
I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
Where did I go wrong?
I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life
How to save a life
How to save a life
