Listen up! 

Hello my darling friend - you goofy little troll!
Come along with me - you can listen while you scroll!

Lonesome Way

Come with me, come with me





Come along with me 

In my lonesome misery 

Where everything I say

Is painted blue and gray

And the sun that’s burning red? 

Such a sun puts me to bed!

In my lonesome misery

Won’t you come along with me? 





’Twas a joke that I told 

When I wasn’t all too old

About a man who couldn’t see 

Near as good as me

And I laughed then I smiled

All those howling wolves of wild! 

They sang a song for me 

When I was just a child





When the final page was turned 

Just before the book was burned

Did you feel it down your spine

Did you take it as a sign?

That the end is always near 

And you’re always stuck right here! 

In such lonesome misery 

Perhaps I’ll come along with thee





Come along with me 

In my lonesome misery 

Where everything I say 

Is twisted in some way

And the sun that’s burning red

Did you listen what I said?

In such lonesome misery 

I am my own worst enemy 

Oh, What a Morning

Oh, what a morning, oh, what a day

Why won’t you come out to play with me? 

We’ll climb that big oak tree

We’ll ride our bikes real fast

And we’ll make the sunshine last






Oh, what a morning, oh, what a day

Why won’t you come out to play? 

We’ll take a walk 

Past our neighbor’s barn 

To that old graveyard

Life don’t have to be so hard






Through the window pane 

The scene is all the same

But come outside 

You can feel the sun and taste the rain

If you stay indoors 

You will likely go insane 

But come outside 

We’ll sing and play a fun, fun game






Oh, what a morning, oh, what a day

Why won’t you ever play with me? 

We could be so happy

I’ll show you my new dance

But I need you to give me a chance

Oh, the Hillside

Oh, the hillside is a sweet ride

From the bottom to the top 

In the winter roads are slicker 

You slide down and you can’t stop







Hear the bells of dear Old Central 

Ringing clear throughout the town 

See the freighters swiftly gliding 

See the bridge go up and down







The wind howls, blows your hat off

And the pigeons do a dance 

Pluck the breadcrumbs from your lunch box

‘Neath the street light’s sweet romance







The little lighthouse on the pier

Stands so solemn and alone

In the winter when the tourists 

Have all left us and gone home







The train whistles past the Lakewalk 

Up the north shore it does go

Past the Fitger’s and the roses

It chugs along so nice and slow







I have read about that great 

Unsalted sea of majesty 

Oh, the storms and ships and people

Oh, that lake has mystery







Oh, the hillside is a sweet ride

Overlooking that old lake

Stop along skyline parkway

How many pictures can you take?

Bulletproof Vest

[Chorus]
Going south, south for the winter

That’s what I’m gonna do next year

Going south, south for the winter

That’s what I say every year







The old man, he is finally at rest

He wrote his own obituary and it is the best

He says, “Look at me now with my bulletproof vest,”

“My mind is free but it once was possessed!”

[Repeat Chorus] 







The old man, he is finally at rest

He owes it all to the heart in his chest

He says, “Look at me now with my bulletproof vest,”

“I once owned my home but it’s been repossessed!”

[Repeat Chorus] 







The old man wonders why they are upset

They cry over his grave and try not to forget 

He says, “Look at me now with my bulletproof vest,” 

“Put a smile on your face, that’s my humble request!”

[Repeat Chorus]

 Sun Beats Down

Don’t be a lazy fool of a boy!
Share with your sister your favorite toy
When the playing is done put your stuff all away
Don’t put off for tomorrow what may be done today
My mother said that ‘life’s a bitch’ 
Oh, and fuck it if she’s right!
That don’t mean that everyday
must be an endless fight
Those jerks will bake a pie
just to throw it at your face
But you just take your finger
Give a lick, how does it taste? 
(How does it taste!?)

Not bad at all! No! Not bad indeed! 
Yeah, you can make some sugar
from any type of seed
It’s just the way you see it
Your perspective, point of view
Don’t do just what you’re told
but what you’re really supposed to do
(What does that mean? What does that mean!?)

You can do it, you can do it! You can try real hard
Take the bull by the horns
and show ‘em who’s in charge! 
Give a hoot and a holler and just find a place to start
The mainstream isn’t so clean
Follow what’s inside your heart!

When will you know about the flow? 
Or know which way to go? 
Or when to take a tow?
Or abandon ship, so sick of it, the fog too thick to go
What if the pipes they burst and see? Life hurts! 
Like everything is cursed?! 
Silly efforts done in haste, well if that’s the case
You just take your finger
Give a lick, how does it taste? 

Rebel Robin

[Chorus]

Rebel Robin, Rebel Robin, Rebel Robin
She don’t take no shit from no one, no!
She’ll make it up even if she don’t know

Rebel Robin goes bop bop boppin’ 
Hip hop hoppin’ along the lane
Rebel Robin she is kind of crazy
Flip flop floppin’ loving the clouds and loving the rain
Everything is just one stupid little game

[Repeat Chorus]

Hear her singing when the sun comes up
Hear her singing when the sun goes down
Hear her whisper a secret from afar
The twinkle in her eye is the twinkle of a star
She always rides her bicycle she never drives a car

[Repeat Chorus] 

Hear her singing at breakfast time
Hear her singing when the school bell ring
Hear her whisper a secret from God above
She’s got the heart of a lion and the wings of a dove
And everyone say that she’s the one that they love

[Repeat Chorus] 

O GIVER OF DREAMS

O Giver of Dreams

Keeper of the Fate

Of all the good things 

That don’t always seem so great

From small speck of sand 

To the ocean and great mountain top

The flame is ablaze 

It so burns and it turns and won’t stop




A shrug of a shoulder 

Long and tired sighs

Can’t see beyond the nose 

From one’s own eyes

The days are diminished 

Or so it seems to appear

Through the palm of a hand 

There it slips all the years




With shining armor 

Such grand display 

The borders drawn neatly 

Showing predator, prey 

A fundamental right 

Is named and proclaimed with all might

There’s always an excuse

An excuse for any old fight




The rule book teachers the victory keepers 

The ra-ra and shout hooray the sore loser weepers

The fantasy league and the dream team game 

They thinking they all different when they all the same!

High on the hog 

At the bottom of the hill

Unwavering 

Such devoted will

Well maybe he don’t know 

His head from the hole in his ass

If you have a question

Please pause, take a moment, and ask

Runtchkin Love

I plucked my eyebrows 

To a shape of pity and despair

I searched the mountains and the valleys 

Looking for a care

There upon the television

Beauty pure and rare

Something tells me a load of bullshit

Stinky and unfair





I wore a new dress 

Made from finest Chinese silken thread

A dress made to wear on my wedding day 

Or maybe when I’m dead

The rose petals fall 

They fall so gently one by one

All that is left is a stem 

The rose is simply done





But I’m not pretty ma, I’m not pretty, no!

I don’t even care about my clothes

I’m not pretty ma, and someday I will die

I am more than what meets the eye!





When I first learned how

How to make a real friend

My imagination proved to be 

A true love without end

But when I grew up 

I got stupid in my head

Swallowing bullshit

All the bullshit that I had been fed





But I’m not pretty ma, I’m not pretty, no!

I don’t even care about my clothes

I’m not pretty ma, and someday I will die

I am more than what meets the eye!





I’m not pretty, ma, I’m not pretty, no! 

And I don’t even care about who may know

I’m not pretty ma, and someday I will die

I am more than what meets the eye

What is wrong with me today? 






[Chorus]

What’s wrong with me? 

What’s wrong with you? 

And everyone that we ever knew? 

I’d like to say that you done me wrong 

But that’s the same damned song

Sung by everyone






I just read a sad sad book 

I’m seeing them everywhere I look

Holds tightly to my heart it won’t let go

I was lost to another place

Upon return I see a brand new face

Reflecting back at me, how did I not know? 

[Repeat Chorus]






The winter’s long but the days they pass

One by one they slip away too fast

By summertime another year gone by

I had dreams and great big hopes

But they really seem to be such stupid jokes

By this time next year let out another sigh

[Repeat Chorus]






What is wrong with me today?

Will You Go?

Will you go someday?
Will you go away? 

Will you go someday near?

Someday near you’ll leave me here






Yes I will go someday 

Yes I will go someway 

Yes I will go someday soon

See my face smile from the moon






I’ll say goodbye someday 

I’ll say goodbye someway 

I’ll say goodbye 

Will you hear? 

Will you laugh or shed a tear? 

Will you love or will you fear? 






Will you join me at last?

Someday when you have finally passed

Will you come and join with me?

One leads the way who will it be? 

One leads the way either you or me

I guess that we will wait and see
