VINCENT POAG For The Girls (2014)

45 Mile An Hour Girl
SHE’S A 45 MILE AN HOUR GIRL
I’M A 75 MILE AN HOUR GUY
SHES SHE’S CAREFULLY BALANCED NOT TO STUMBLE OR FALL
I’VE TRIED TO CATCH THE WORLD ON A FLY
SHE’S THAT DELICATE BLEND OF LOVER AND FRIEND
WITH A CLASS THAT’S AS FAR AS IT’S WIDE
SHE’S A 45 MILE AN HOUR GIRL
AND TOGETHER WE’RE OFF FOR A DRIVE

SHE’S A 45 MILE AN HOUR GIRL
I’M A 75 MILE AN HOUR GUY
SHE LIKES HER SAFETY AMBIANCE AND CURLS
MEASURE OF RISK SPLASH OF ACTION SHOT OF RYE
EVERY THING THAT I DO YOU CAN BET SHE TOO IS WILLING TO GIVE IT A TRY
SHE’S A 45 MILE AN HOUR GIRL
AND TOGETHER WE’RE OFF FOR A DRIVE

SHE DOESN’T GOSSIP AU CONTRAIRE
QUITE DEMURE MI AMORE
WHAT SHE SEES IN ME IS OBSCURE
ALWAYS LATE WORTH THE WAIT TO ENDURE
WHAT TAKES PLACE IN HER CLOSET I’M NOT SURE

SLEEPLESS ALWAYS AWAKE
HUMOR MODESTY GRACE
AND A SPARKLE IN EACH OF HER EYES
SHE’S A 45 MILE AN HOUR GIRL
WITH A HEART AS BIG AS SHANGHAI

HOTEL FULL OF FRIENDS
WAITING LIST CAN’T GET IN
NO MORE ROOMS UNTIL SOMEONE’S DEMISE
SHE’S A 45 MILE AN HOUR GIRL
AND TOGETHER WE’RE OFF FOR A DRIVE
AND TOGETHER WE’LL DRIVE SIXTY FIVE
Once Upon A Time
ONCE UPON A TIME WHEN I THOUGHT NATURE UNKIND
I WAS BLESSED WITH A LOVE THAT WAS MINE
IT CAME LIKE A BRAND NEW DAWN
THIS EMBRACE THAT MADE ME STRONG
LIKE I’D SUDDENLY BEEN REBORN WITH A GLOW
THAT WAS ONCE UPON A TIME
ONCE UPON A TIME LONG AGO

SKIES WERE DIFFERENT SHADES OF BLUE
BUT OUR LOVE WAS BRAVE AND NEW
AND OUR FAMILY IT GREW INTO THREE
WEATHERING EVERYTHING THAT CAME
LIFE BETWEEN THE DROPS OF RAIN
NEVER HAVING TO EXPLAIN WHY IT WAS SO
THAT WAS ONCE UPON A TIME
ONCE UPON A TIME LONG AGO

WAS IT CHANGING WITH THE TIMES
OR A SIMPLE CHANGE OF MIND
THAT COULD TURN A LOVE SO WARM INTO SNOW
ISN’T LOVE SUPPOSED TO GROW
CAN IT QUICKLY COME AND GO
NOW THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO SAY BUT I KNOW
IT WAS ONCE UPON A TIME
ONCE UPON A TIME LONG AGO
For The Girls
FROM THE TIME IT ALL BEGAN
NOT A CHANCE FOR POOR ADAM
MYSTERY FAVORITE TOY
ACHILLES HEAL OF EVERY BOY
BREAK THE HEARTS
BREAK THE LAW
GO TO JAIL GO TO HELL GIVE UP GOD COUNTRY CROWN GO TO WAR
DIFFERENT PAGE SAME OLD STORY
WATCH EM RISE WATCH EM FALL
WHAT THE BOY WILL DO FOR THE GIRL

SOMETHING SPARK THE YOUNG MAN’S NERVES
JUST A SUCKER FOR THE CURVES
WHERE HE’S BORN HOW HE’S BRED
MIND NO LONGER IN HIS HEAD
MAKE THEM NOTICE
DIFFERENT LOOK REPERTOIRE
POLITICS PLAY A SPORT THEATRE DANCE LEARN GUITAR BE A STAR
ALGEBRA HE CAN FIGURE
BUT THE WIGGLE AND THE CURL
WHAT THE BOY WILL DO FOR THE GIRL

SHAKE YOUR HEAD
SIDE TO SIDE
WHY YOU LOOKING AT ME WITH THESE EYES

THEN THE BOY BECOMES A MAN
BY NOW HE SHOULD UNDERSTAND
CONSEQUENCES WHAT’S AT STAKE
DOES HE LEARN FROM HIS MISTAKES
LEAVE HIS FAMILY LEAVE HIS JOB MAKE NEW FRIENDS
LOSE HIS HOME MONEY LIFE MOVE AWAY START AGAIN
EVERY MINUTE EVERY DAY
ALL AROUND THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD
WHAT THE BOY WILL DO FOR THE GIRLS

SHAKE YOUR HEAD
MY OH MY
THERE FOR A GOODNESS GRACE GO I

SHE’S A MAZE OF EMOTION
HE LIKES PLAYING WITH A BALL
WHAT THE BOY WILL DO
WHAT THE BOY WILL DO
WHAT THE BOY WILL DO
FOR THE GIRLS
Waiting For Me
STRANGE HOW WE GIVE SHELTER TO
THE IMAGES WE WEAVE
REALITY A QUESTION OF
THE THINGS THAT WE BELIEVE
BOUNDARIES READJUSTED
BY THE LINES THAT ARE DECEIVED
AND I THOUGHT THE WORLD WAS WAITING FOR ME

ORDINARY PLAYING CARDS IN COSTUMES QUEENS AND KINGS
EVERYBODY KNOWS A JOKER CAN BE ANYTHING
PROMISE SPUN WITH BRILLIANT YARNS
IN A DREAMLIKE TAPESTRY
AND I THOUGHT THE WORLD WAS WAITING FOR ME

SAILING ON THE OCEAN
LIKE A SHIP NO SIGHT OF SHORE
REACHING OUT FOR LESS
THAN I HAVE THROWN AWAY BEFORE
CAN’T GO BACK OR
UNLESS YOU WANT A LITTLE MORE
AND I’VE GOT SOMEONE WAITING FOR ME
Forever
SHE COMES LIKE MORNING
AND STAYS THE NIGHT TIME
AS SURE AS TOMORROW
I KNOW SHE’LL BE THERE

AND I’VE BEEN
MEANING TO TELL HER
MY FEELINGS IN NUMBER
BUT CANNOT CONFINE THEM TO RHYME

SHE’S WONDERFUL AS FAR AS FOREVER

AND WHEN THE SIDEWALKS ARE BURNIN
I WON’T BE SUFFERIN
CAUSE SHE’S LIKE COLD WATER
RUNNIN DOWN MY THROAT

AND WHEN THE FROST IS IN SEASON
I WON’T BE FREEZIN
CAUSE SHE’LL BE FOUND SURROUNDING ME
JUST LIKE A WINTER COAT

SHE’S WONDERFUL AS FAR AS FOREVER

AND I’VE BEEN
MEANING TO TELL HER
MY FEELINGS IN NUMBER
BUT CANNOT CONFINE THEM TO RHYME
SHE’S WONDERFUL AS FAR AS FOREVER
Only Love
The sky's majestic sun’s nourishing wonder
Nights sparkling diamonds lightning thunder
The universe’s origination
The miracle of life creation

Summer fall winter spring
Every blessed breathing thing
But Only love is magic


A salmon’s journey Birds on a wire
babies families rain wind fire
The ocean’s mysteries Dreams Rivers mountains
nature’s marvels Keep on counting
Exploration the next sensation
The Shapes of women Innovation
But Only love is magic


Flowers blooming to the crooning of birds and bees
Listen for your rhythmic melody

A mother’s instincts a child’s eyes
Art that can’t be categorized
Food that grows and sights to see
kindness human decency
All around us naturally came to this old world for free
But only love is magic

Some elusive stranger appears like a rhapsody
You will too believe in sorcery

Sunshine shining hearts a aching
Anticipation infatuation
Insides grinning Transformation
New beginning Reincarnation
consideration giving taking
inspiration aggravation only love is magic

hearts a thumping
Suns a blazing
prance like dancing change amazing
mind is racing
brave courageous
pulse vibrating the vibe Contagious
dedication cohabitation
decorations procreation only love is magic
My Wings
If you take my hand
I will comfort you
Through this troubled world
We will go as two
I’ll brave you through each storm
Keep you safe and warm
Cause the winds are fierce
But my wings are strong

By man’s chains im bound
You wont see me break
When the raptors prey
when you heavens take
to shield you from harm i’d forsake it all
But the sky’s so big and my wings so small

We will build our home out of love that’s true
You take care of me i’ll look after you

As this body beats you are its heart
Sure as loves a saint sure as life is hard
From the depths of hell to the height of sky
Till the sun stays down and the tides don’t rise

Passion fades like fire
Few words are for sure
Its you I admire
Always will adore

Of this flesh and blood
You are the heart
Sure as life is breath
Sure as love is art
From the depths of hell to the height of sky
‘Til my time runs out And my wings can't fly
Wonder
I was alive once
laughed at the time once
now I count seconds go by

Angel of pleasure
Easy together
Clever me hurt him so

Now I wonder what he’s doing
wonder if he’s missing me
like i’m missing him now

Egos too strong Words last too long
Nobody's wrong

traces in faces Familiar places
searching for him everywhere

now I wonder if he's crying
I feel like i’m dying
wonder what he’s doing now

Pictures and memories
Proof of what used to be
Days and nights tauntingly
thoughts of him haunting me
Wonder if he sees me now

Oh the stains of regret
Will they let me forget
That was his scent in the air

One day i’ll see him
Before I free him
Wonder if he sees me now
Scarlett & Me
One day I'm walking down fifth avenue
humming a song enjoying the view
Someone texting nearly bowls me down
packages strewn all around
I helped her pick them up It started pouring luck
we ran for shelter and suddenly
There was scarlett and me

Thought I was dreaming she smiled innocently
offering her apology
Since opportunity often knocks just once
I told her she could buy me lunch
There simply hasn’t been a girl with charms like Marilyn's
Sensitive Sensuality
Then There was scarlett and me

And In a quaint café we talked as music played
She beguiled my heart away
And Time stood still

Our thoughts flowed seemlessly (seamlessly)
I kid her teasingly
The Laughs came easily
fragile Femininity

Fireworks much to my surprise
When we caught each other’s eyes
The story's ending you will have to guess
imagination man’s best friend

She’ll go down in history
I composed this melody
where we will live forever happily
Scarlett and me
Susan
YOU’VE GOT TO GIVE IT A CHANCE SUSAN
YOU CAN’T HIDE FROM INSIDE
YOU CAN’T RATIONALIZE SOMETIMES
YOU’VE GOT TO FOLLOW YOUR HEART

YOU’RE HOLDING SAND IN YOUR HAND SUSAN
REACHING FOR SMOKE ON THE RISE
INSTEAD OF SECOND PRIZE MAYBE
YOU OUGHT TO FOLLOW YOUR HEART

WHEN YOU ASKED ME TO LEAVE I WAS SURPRISED
I SEARCHED YOUR FACE BUT COULD NOT FIND YOUR EYES
DID YOU MEAN GO OR WAS IT PLEASE STAY
IT’S HARD TO FIGHT WHEN YOU LOSE EITHER WAY
OH SUSAN

IT’S JUST A QUESTION OF TIME
THE ANSWER’S NOT IN YOUR MIND
AND IT’S SO EASY TO FIND
IF YOU FOLLOW YOUR HEART

PEOPLE WILL LOVE PEOPLE WILL CRY
THERE’S ALWAYS SOMEONE LEFT ASKING WHY
HE FOUND YOU FIRST AND SO YOU STAY
ON TOP OF AN ICEBERG MELTING AWAY
OH SUSAN

IT’S JUST A QUESTION OF TIME
THE ANSWER’S NOT IN YOUR MIND
AND IT’S SO EASY TO FIND
IF YOU FOLLOW YOUR HEART

YES YOU COULD EVEN BE BLIND SUSAN AND FOLLOW YOUR HEART
Momma

MOMMA DID I TELL YOU
YOU ARE MY FAVORITE GIRL
MOMMA DID I TELL YOU
THERE’S NO ONE LIKE YOU IN ALL OF THE WORLD
I KNOW YOU HAVE ALWAYS HELD ME SO CLOSE TO YOUR HEART
I KNOW I WILL ALWAYS BE THE SAME BABY I WAS AT THE START
WE TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED WHEN WE LOSE THEM IT’S TOO LATE
YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR LOVER
BUT YOU’LL NEVER HAVE ANOTHER MOMMA
WORDS TOO MANY WORDS UNSPOKEN WORDS
WE DON’T GET AROUND TO
WE DON’T GET AROUND TO SAY
MOMMA DID I THANK YOU FOR BEING GENTLE AND KIND
DID I EVER THANK YOU FOR BEING THOUGHTFUL LOVING AND MINE
WE TAKE THINGS FOR GRANTED WHEN WE LOSE THEM IT’S TOO LATE
YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR LOVER
BUT YOU’LL NEVER HAVE ANOTHER MOMMA
WORDS SO MANY WORDS UNSPOKEN WORDS
WE DON’T GET AROUND TO
WE DON’T GET AROUND TO SAY
MOMMA, MOMMA
New Orleans
RIGHT IN THE MOUTH OF THE MISSISSIPPI
IN THE GULF OF MEXICO
PORT TO THE MIDDLE OF THE COUNTRY
MISSOURI IOWA MINNESOTA
NEITHER THE HEAT THE RAIN MOSQUITO
SMALL POX YELLOW FEVER SUPER NATURAL EXTREMES
COULD EVER STOP THE MUSIC FROM PLAYING IN NEW ORLEANS

1803 LOUISIANA PURCHASED BY JEFFERSON FROM NAPOLEON
WORLDWIDE TRADING FLOURISHED TOBACCO SUGAR THE COTTON GIN
LABRINTH OF DELTAS BAYOUS LEVEES PARTY
FIFTEEN FEET BELOW THE RIVER
MARDI GRAS WHAT A SCENE
NOTHING STOPS THE MUSIC FROM PLAYING IN NEW ORLEANS

OUT OF THE WOMB OF PIRATES AND GAMBLERS EXPLORERS OF OPPORTUNITY
POPULATION BOOMING CITY OF WINE CUISINE SONG SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY

THE BIG EASY CAJUN CREOLE THE BRASS BANDS THE MARCHING BANDS
NEW ORLEANS JAZZ DIXIELAND

EASY TO BE NOBLE
WHEN YOU’RE SUNNING IN THE BREEZE
FIND OUT WHO’S GOT WHAT
WHEN YOU’RE DESPARATE AND THEY’RE SQUEEZING

TWICE THE FIRES BURNED ITS

BUT THEY COULD NOT CLAIM ITS SOUL
THAT MIGHTY RIVER’S GREAT BIG HEART
HAS NO PITY FOR ITS CITY PRISONER ON PAROLE
YOU CAN DROWN THE HOMES NOT THE SPIRITS
YOU CAN WASH AWAY THE HOPES AND DREAMS KATRINA
BUT YOU CAN'T STOP THE MUSIC FROM PLAYING
YOU CAN'T STOP
YOU JUST CAN'T STOP THE MUSIC FROM PLAYING
IN NEW ORLEANS
Can't Catch Me
CAN'T CATCH ME, CAN'T CATCH ME

VINCENT POAG Circling Back (2011)

Confidence Thrill
WHEN EXPERIENCE LEAVES YOU NOTHING BUT SCARS
ATTEMPTS AT ESCAPE FIND YOU EXITS WITH BARS
THE TWISTED TONGUED PEDDLER SHINES LIKE A STAR
BECKONING YOU TO RIDE IN HIS CAR
DON’T LET HIM IN AS HE PASSES DESCENDING THE HILL
OR AS SURE AS THE TAXES YOU PAY YOU’LL SURRENDER YOUR WILL
TO THE CONFIDENCE THRILL

THERE IS NO RELEASE EVERY PRISONER SUBMITS
TO THE STRENGTH OF THE CHAINS NO FIRST AID KIT
CAN HELP YOU HERE YOU CANNOT QUIT
CANNOT MOVE AND CANNOT SIT
GATHERING DUST AS YOU WAIT FOR ANOTHER REFILL
WHILE YOUR ONLY FRIEND MAKES YOU FEEL LIKE A SIDEWALK UNTIL
THE NEXT CONFIDENCE THRILL

THE YOUNG TOO INNOCENT AND BOLD
THE OLD TOO TIRED OF CHASING GOALS
LIKE PROGRAMMED DIGGERS OF A HOLE
WHO ONCE WOULD NEVER HARM A SOUL
WHEN IT’S NINETY FIVE IN THE SHADE AND THEY'RE FEELING A CHILL
WILL TRADE IN THEIR MOTHERS LIKE STAMPS
WHEN THEY CAN’T PAY THE BILL
FOR THE CONFIDENCE THRILL

WHAT REASONS BIND THE LIKES OF THIS
WHAT TRUTH IS THERE TO ANY MYTH
WHY DOES DEATH BECOME A FEAR
ONLY WHEN IT STRIKES YOU NEAR
AS I HOLD UP THE BAR AND POINT FOR ANOTHER REFILL
AND MUMBLE THERE AIN’T NOTHING WRONG WITH HAVING A THRILL
EXCEPT WHEN CONFIDENCE KILLS
Let Me In
IF YOU’RE LOOKIN FOR A LOVER
MORE THAN JUST A FRIEND
I’LL LISTEN TO YOUR SECRETS
I’LL HOLD YOU BY THE HAND
BUT FIRST THERE’S SOMETHING YOU MUST DO
YOU GOTTA LET ME IN

IF YOU’RE FEELIN LOST AND LONELY
NEED GOOD COMPANY
SOMEONE WHO’LL TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY
HONEY YOU CAN COUNT ON ME
BUT FIRST THERE’S SOMETHING YOU MUST DO
YOU GOTTA LET ME IN

IF YOU’RE NEEDIN INSPIRATION
YOU DON’T HAVE TO COMPROMISE
THERE ISN’T ANYTHING THAT I WON’T DO
THERE ISN’T ANYTHING THAT I WON’T TRY

I’M AS FLEXIBLE AS RUBBER
I CAN KNOCK YOU OUT LIKE RYE
I CAN BE AS SWEET AS CHOCOLATE
ILL MAKE YOU LAUGH ILL MAKE YOU CRY
BUT FIRST THERE’S SOMETHING YOU MUST DO
YOU GOTTA LET ME IN
Eat My Shorts
IT’S ALRIGHT IF YOU DON’T LIKE ME THOUGH I’D RATHER BE YOUR FRIEND
IT’S ALRIGHT FOR YOU TO DISAGREE AND YOU’RE RIGHT TO DEFEND
BUT IF YOU’RE DROPPIN FISHING LINES BECAUSE YOU WANT ME CAUGHT
YOU CAN EAT MY SHORTS

IT’S ALRIGHT FOR YOU TO SPEAK YOUR MIND SOMEDAY I MAY SIDE WITH YOU
YOU’RE ENTITLED TO YOUR OPINION THAT’S YOUR POINT OF VIEW
BUT IF YOU’RE THROWING DARTS AT ME BECAUSE YOU LIKE THE SPORT
YOU CAN EAT MY SHORTS

WHAT YOU’RE MISSING I DON’T HAVE IT DID YOU CHECK THE LOST AND FOUND
IF YOU HAVE TO TALK BEHIND MY BACK MAKE SURE I CAN’T TRACE YOU’RE SOUND
BUT IF YOU CHOOSE TO SLANDER ME RULING OF THE COURT
YOU CAN EAT MY SHORTS

HOW CAN YOU PREY ON THE INNOCENT AND THEN PRAY TO THE LORD
EVERY DAY HAS IT’S DOG AND EVERY DOG IT’S REWARD
WHEN THE DREAM YOU’RE CHASING DOESN’T TURN OUT LIKE YOU THOUGHT
YOU CAN EAT MY SHORTS

TWO GUYS SITTING BY THE SEA ONE CONTENTED ONE MAN BORED
THE NYLON ROPE YOU THINK YOU’RE HANGING ON MIGHT BE A COTTON CORD
SO IF YOU’RE NICE TO ME WHEN YOU’RE PANTS DON’T FIT NO MORE
YOU CAN HAVE MY SHORTS
Fence Around Your Mind
WELL IT’S OFF TO SCHOOL AS SOON AS YOU CAN STAND
MEMORIZE THE HISTORY OF THE LAND
THAT GREAT BIG WORLD OUTSIDE WILL TAKE YOU FOR A RIDE
THE NEWS REPORTS AND PAPERS ARE ALL FINE
BUT YOU BETTER READ BETWEEN THE LINES
OR ELSE THEY’LL PUT A FENCE AROUND YOUR MIND

MAGNETIC MOVIES LURE YOU TO THE SCREEN
YOU PLAY THE ROLES OF HEROES YOU HAVE SEEN
AND THEN YOU START TO DOUBT JUST WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT
MAYBE YOU’VE BEEN SIPPING TO MUCH WINE
THEY’VE STRUNG YOU UP SO FAST YOU MUST UNWIND
OR ELSE THEY’LL PUT A FENCE AROUND YOUR MIND

NOW EVERYBODY'S SCREAMING WHAT TO DO
THE BUSINESS HAND IS REACHING OUT FOR YOU
AND NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE JUST WHAT YOU’VE GOT IN THERE
AND ALL ALONG YOU THOUGHT YOUD GOTTEN THROUGH
YOUD BETTER MOVE INSTEAD OF WASTING TIME
OR ELSE THEY’LL PUT A FENCE AROUND YOUR MIND

WELL ITS FIFTY FIFTY SHORT OR LONG
MAKE YOUR MOVE LEFT OR RIGHT RIGHTOR WRONG
BUT LISTEN WITH YOUR EYES AND TALK WITH YOUR EARS
TAKE IT ALL IN LEAVING NOTHING BEHIND
THEN DISREGARD HALF OF WHAT YOU FIND
AND HOP OVER THAT FENCE AROUND YOUR MIND
Seagull
SEAGULL SOARING GENTLY THROUGH THE SKY
THINK IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO SAY GOODBYE
YOUR SHADOW DARKENS THE WATER
AS YOU HUNT YOUR FOOD FROM HIGH
YOU’RE THINKIN WITH YOUR HEART
HELPLESS TO DECIDE
SEAGULL SPREAD YOUR BIG WHITE WINGS AND GLIDE

SEAGULL HOW GRACEFULLY YOU FLY
WINTERS HERE NOW AND YOU MUST ABIDE
GO UP WHERE THE WINDS ARE MUCH STRONGER
STRETCH YOUR WINGS OUT WIDE
UP THERE YOUR SENSES WILL GUIDE YOU
JUST CATCH A BREEZE AND RIDE
SEAGULL SPREAD YOUR BIG WHITE WINGS AND GLIDE

SEAGULL SOARING GENTLY THROUGH THE SKY
EASIER TO BE SMART THAN TO BE WISE
NOTHING STAYS NEW ONLY OLD
FEELINGS GROW OR DIE
GO WHERE THE WEATHER WILL HOLD YOU
SOMETIMES YOU JUST SURVIVE

SEAGULL SPREAD YOUR BIG WHITE WINGS
SEAGULL SPREAD YOUR BIG WHITE WINGS
AND SEAGULL TAKE ME WITH YOU WHEN YOU GLIDE
This Christmas
THIS CHRISTMAS LET'S FORGET OUR TROUBLES
IN TRIBUTE LET US ALL BE HUMBLE
AND IN A SONG LET OUR VOICES BLEND
FOR CHRISTMAS LET'S BE FRIENDS

LET'S MAKE A WORLD AT PEACE OUR BUSINESS
IN GIVING LET US TRY FORGIVENESS
AND ON THE EVE LET US MAKE AMENDS
FOR CHRISTMAS LET'S BE FRIENDS

MAKE BELIEVE WE’RE A FAMILY
SPREADING LOVE UNDER HEAVENS TREE

THIS SEASON LETS FORGET OUR DIFFERENCES
AND TAKE THE TIME TO THINK WHAT CHRISTMAS IS
AND FOR A GIFT MAY I RECOMMEND
FOR CHRISTMAS LET'S BE FRIENDS
Mountain Lion
I’M JUST AN EASY GOING KIND OF A GUY
I NEVER HURT NOBODY AT LEAST I DON’T TRY
BUT THAT GAL SHE PLAYS FOUL
MAKES ME GROWL
LIKE A MOUNTAIN LION

I DON’T SHIVER FROM THE COLD IN THE NIGHT
BUT I QUIVER WHENEVER WE FIGHT
CAUSE THAT GAL THE WAY SHE SCHEMES
CAN MAKE ME MEAN
AS A MOUNTAIN LION

SHE GETS TO ME WITHOUT TRYIN
CANT EXPLAIN
MYSTIFYING

THERE AIN’T NOBODY CAN STEAL ME AWAY
SHE MAKES ME HAPPY ALTHOUGH I MUST SAY
SHES GOT THE POWER IN HER DEN
TO TURN ME INTO A MOUNTAIN LION
Stress
WELL WE WAKE UP IN THE MORNING
AND WE GO TO WORK EACH DAY
PUTTING OUT THE FIRES IS HOW WE EARN OUR PAY
SAVING FOR SECURITY TIME FOR US TO PLAY
SOMETHING COME AND TAKE IT ALL AWAY

MONDAY IS STRESS, TUESDAY IS STRESS, WEDNESDAY IS STRESS
THURSDAY IS STRESS, FRIDAY IS STRESS, SATURDAY IS STRESS
THEN SUNDAY MY ONE DAY OF REST STRESS

EVERYBODY'S RUSHING TRYING TO WIN THE HUMAN RACE
PROBLEMS THEY DON’T GO AWAY ONLY GET REPLACED
ALL THESE YEARS EXPERIENCE ONE THING THAT I KNOW
MAYBE HERE TODAY AND THEN YOU GO

WELL THE CHILDREN THEY DON’T LISTEN AND THE WOMEN THEY CAN CRY
AND THEY’RE RECORDING EVERYTHING A MAN DON’T GET A BUY
I LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND I SLAP AROUND MY FACE
THEY’RE AINT ENOUGH PROZAC IN THIS PLACE
Lawless Lady
I AM THE LAWLESS LADY HEAR MY TALE BEFORE YOU GO
MY SINS MY OCCUPATION IT’S THE ONLY LIFE I KNOW
MY HOMES AROUND THE CORNER YOU NEEDN’T HAVE A LINE
AND MAN YOU’VE GOT A NEED FOR ME
BABY SO YOU HAVE SOME TIME

I AM TODAY AS I HAVE BEEN THROUGH CENTURIES BEFORE
A CAPTIVATING DANCER A TEMPORARY CURE
DESIRE IS THE CULPRIT PASSION IS THE CRIME
I AM A FRIEND TO EVERY MAN
BABY DO YOU HAVE SOME TIME

THE HARDENED MEN WHO OWNED MY FLESH
REMAIN UNTOUCHED UNKNOWN
WHILE I WAS SENT TO TRIAL AND ON AN ISLAND THROWN
AND I REMEMBERED CLEARLY THOUGH THE JUDGE SHOWED NOT A SIGN
WHEN HE HAD ASKED SO GRACIOUSLY
BABY DO YOU HAVE SOME TIME

AND SO MY SILENT CUSTOMERS I AM TEMPTATIONS LURE
RELIEVE YOUR INHIBITIONS REDUCE YOUR TEMPERATURE
NO HEAR NO SPEAK THE BOLD THE WEAK DISCRETELY SNEAK AWAY
I AM THE LADY DESIREE BABY WHAT DO YOU SAY
What's The Matter With You
YOU’RE DANGED IF YOU DO
AND YOU’RE DANGED IF YOU DON’T
YOU CAN’T SAY YOU WILL
WHEN YOU’RE NOT SURE YOU WON’T
AND IF YOU DON’T WATCH OUT
YOU’RE GONNA LIVE ALONE
WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU

YOU CAN’T TAKE ADVICE
CAUSE YOU’RE STUBBORN PROUD
YOU’RE ALRIGHT ALONE
BUT YOU’RE TERRIBLE IN CROWDS
YOU DON’T MEAN HARM BUT YOU TALK TOO LOUD
WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU

ALWAYS RUNNIN UP AND WALKIN DOWN
GROWIN OUT OF YOUR SHOES
CLOSE YOUR EYES WITH ONE FOOT ON THE GROUND
SEE WHAT HAPPENS TO YOU

YOU CANT BE FOUND WHEN YOU ARE NO PLACE
DOCTOR SAYS YOU’RE A HOPELESS CASE
HALF YOUR LIFE’S BEEN SPENT IN SPACE
WHATS THE MATTER WITH YOU

ALWAYS SCURRYIN THERE’S NO NEED FOR WORRYIN
WHEN YOU’RE IN THE KNOW PUTTIN ON YOUR SHOW
YOUR TIMES PASSIN SLOW EVERYBODY'S ASKIN WHERE DID IT ALL GO

LOVE LIFE LOOKS LIKE A STOCK CAR RACE
RELATIONSHIPS ALL ABOUT THE CHASE
EVEN DOGS SMELL BEFORE THEY TASTE
WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH YOU
Little One
LITTLE ONE BARELY ABLE TO STAND ON THE GROUND
CARELESS AND RECKLESS THE WORLD’S YOUR PLAYGROUND
THEY’LL COME A TIME WHEN MY WORDS WILL RESOUND
UP OR DOWN, THESE ARMS WRAP AROUND

LITTLE ONE I’LL EMBRACE EVERY INCH THAT YOU GROW
WE’LL SWIM IN THE SUMMER AND RIDE ON THE SNOW
AND IF YOU’RE NOT SURE OF THE WAY AS YOU GO
TURN TO ME, I’LL PRETEND THAT I KNOW

THERE’S SO MUCH YOU WILL LEARN FROM THE THINGS YOU RECALL
NO VALLEY’S TOO WIDE, NO FENCE THAT’S TOO TALL
THERE’S NO QUESTION TOO MANY AND ANSWERS FROM ALL
NOBODY'S TOO BIG TO STUMBLE

THERE ARE SOUNDS ON THE RISE YOU WONT HEAR TILL YOU FALL
WE’VE ALL LEARNED TO WALK BUT WE’VE ALL HAD TO CRAWL
JUST RELY ON YOUR PATIENCE WHEN TIME SEEMS TO STALL
NOBODY’S TOO BIG, NOBODY’S TOO SMALL

LITTLE ONE ITS YOUR SONG SING IT OUT SING IT TRUE
PERSEVERE WITH A DREAM FOR A DREAM TO COME THROUGH
SING WITH ALL OF YOUR HEART THAT’S ALL I ASK OF YOU
EVERYONE EVERYWHERE WAS LITTLE ONCE TOO
I'll Be Seeing You Soon
MY FACE IS LOOKIN MIGHTY PALE
DEVILS TUGGING AT MY TALE
SARA SHE IS CRAZY AS A LOON
AND I GOT A FUNNY FEELING
LORD ILL BE SEEING YOU SOON

ITS JUST AN EDUCATED GUESS
SMOKING MORE DRINKING YES
YOUNG PEOPLE BURSTIN LIKE BALLOONS
AND I'VE GOT A FUNNY FEELING
LORD ILL BE SEEING YOU SOON

CRYING BABIES EVERYWHERE
BOTTLED WATER POISON AIR
BUZZARDS CIRCLING OUR COMMUNE
I JUST GOT A FUNNY FEELING
ILL BE SEEIN YOU SOON

TOO MANY SHEPHERDS TOO MANY SHEEP
TOO MANY HUNGRY CANT AFFORD TO DO NOTHING BUT SLEEP
WINDS SWIRLING OVER SAND DUNES
GOT A FUNNY FEELIN ILL BE SEEIN YOU SOON

BULLSHIT FLYIN EVERYWHERE
EVEN ON THE GOOD BOOK WITH A SWEAR
STANDIN ROOM IN THE SALOON
I JUST GOT THIS FUNNY FEELING

SCHEMES TO BRING US ALL RELIEF
SKIES THREATENING DARKNESS CREAKS
WOLVES HOWLING AT THE MOON
AND I'VE GOT A FUNNY FEELING
LORD ILL BE SEEING YOU SOON
