Shipping Forecast I’m listening for the shipping forecast On my radio I have to know,if it will snow and if so ,will it blow It doesn't really matter I have no place to go So I'm listening for the shipping forecast On my radio I used to have a social life but I jacked all that in I swept up all the clutter and threw it in the bin Scooped up the dogma Now I live in sin I looked through the tissue Saw it paper thin I’m listening for the shipping forecast On my radio I have to know,if it will snow and if so ,will it blow It doesn't really matter I have no place to go So I'm listening for the shipping forecast On my radio Why do I bother is a mystery to me Iv'e never seen a mountain stream Iv'e never seen the sea A hurricane in the Atlantic Might help to shake the tree We all might survive the storm We'll have to wait and see I’m listening for the shipping forecast On my radio I have to know,if it will snow and if so ,will it blow It doesn't really matter I have no place to go So I'm listening for the shipping forecast on my radio

I want to be part of the gang wanna be loved by all and sundry get a good job starting next Monday Go to Dave's concerts every Sunday Every Sunday Every Sunday Covet the seat at the top table just like those brothers in that old fable Atone for the sins of Cane and Able Cane and Able Cane and Able Aspire to be on top of the steeple Look down my nose at all of Gods people Sort the wheat from the chaff, the weak and the feeble the weak and the feeble the weak and the feeble Sell my soul for adoration No prophet, no faith , no salvation Worth every cent, I‘ve done the equation I ‘ve done the equation I‘ve done the equation Ah to be known for all the right places wide angled shot, a day at the races throw in the kitchen sink, we're leaving no traces we're leaving no traces we're leaving no traces RSVP from all the right people cameo in a long running sequel sticky tale, trickier than treacle trickier than treacle, trickier than treacle

The best out in me I may be right I maybe wrong Sometimes I’m weak,but then sometimes I’m strong After living so long There’s times I still don’t see But I know while I’ve got you There’s not much I can’t do You bring the best out in me When the world don’t seem a friend When every day the rainmaker sends When solitude once more ascends To fill the spaces in my mind So I’ll let you take control Of my senses and my soul You bring the best out in me You could have been anything you wanted But you chose to be my friend Fickle fate stands at the gate I’ve no bridges left to defend There’s some you win,some you lose Sometimes I laugh but I’m not amused These dreams I have I do not choose They just trip me from behind I may be stubborn as a mule I might be crazy but I ain’t a fool You bring the best out in me

ceceilia 02:31
Cecilia Cecilia what do you want from me Your humble servant I have been Followed you through light and dark Every footprint left it’s mark Now we come to this sad place Where every Satan dare show his face Teeter at the precipice The long cold fire, The great abyss Cecilia I’ve done all you ask I’ve walked through fire I’ve walked on glass Peeked in on the other side Death of hope, Murdered pride Kick the dog out in the street Lick his wound, let him bleed The fat one calls it jealousy Cecilia what do you want from me The Midas touch the lust for cold Bread and water bought and sold The vine clings to life itself Clink the glass a toast to wealth One takes the extra slice of meat While his brothers dying at his feet Ah show a little charity Cecilia what do you want from me

fox & rabbit 04:44
Goodnight said the Fox to the Rabbit Goodnight said the Fox to the Rabbit Goodnight, now it’s time for my lair Goodnight and good luck Said the dirty babbling brook Nothing much happens ‘round here A traveler came here in living memory Rumor has it he walked past my shack Turned on his heels, you could hear the tires squeal Hot footed it straight back down the track In my fantasy I can rule all I see Own an island in the sun In my dreams I can be a king or queen Excrete from on high on everyone Goodnight said the Fox to the Rabbit Goodnight, now it’s time for my lair Goodnight and good luck Said the dirty babbling brook Nothing much happens ‘round here My uncle got married to my cousin Pretty weird bunch all said and done My sister said you don’t make love like Dad But then she ain’t half as good as Mom

your it 03:50
Your It (na na na na na ) So sucker she found your Achilles Heel You get the hook, she gets to keep the line & reel Marriage made in heaven or a pig in a poke One thing about God He loves a good joke Really want to thank you for the stab in the back Cut myself loose, got myself back on track Forced fed untruths ‘til I nearly choked One thing about God He loves a good joke Na na na na nana your it Na na na na na na your it BRB AFK for a smoke One thing about God He loves a good joke Wheeling and dealing, unintelligent design Well now your stuck with it ‘til the end of time You ain’t going nowhere,your motors all broke One thing about God He loves a good joke You deserve each other I truly believe Risk management, keep a trump up your sleeve You think I don’t know what lies beneath that cloak One thing about God He loves a good joke Na na na na nana your it Na na na na na na your it BRB AFK for a smoke One thing about God He loves a good joke Mark my words, you’ve made the main mistake Talk shop of drama queens, frauds and fakes When they’ve had their fill of you, your out at a stroke One thing about God He loves a good joke Corrupt collusion, you walked into it blind Should have read the small print, read between the lines Don’t complain to me when your balls are dangling from a rope One thing about God He loves a good joke

Water under the bridge An eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth The tears that we cry in search of the truth Lies upon lies continue the fight Two wrongs never made a right But after all it’s just water under the bridge You’re no more a fisherman than I the jack of trades Said the cardsharp to the dealer as he dealt the ace of spades No use being on the right side of a one way track No use traveling first class if the train ain’t coming back But after all it’s just water under the bridge There was a woman I nearly knew Wouldn’t waste a word where a I whine would do She ran out of victims to consume Got tired of the tantrums, got up , left the room But after all it’s just water under the bridge

Tell me I’m your friend No need for you to worry You can leave it up to me No need to be sorry No Apologies You can use my shoulder little girl You can hold me tight You can tell me all of your problems In the middle of the night You can tell me it’s over You can say it’s the end You can tell me anything you want Tell me I’m your friend No need to be fearful I’ll be at your side No need for teardrops Dry those pretty eyes No need to deceive you I have no use for lies To many complications Creating alibi's No need to impress you By clever things I’d say If I was acting You’d see through the masquerade

That's why God is singin' the blues. We took the pee out of Paradise just to produce this hell And all we're going to leave behind is this decaying putrid smell We've lived in this world seen her used and abused. That's why God is singin' the blues. They felled a great oak over there they filled a duck pond over here. We've got a glass and concrete monster now that feeds and caters for our fears. Maybe it's too late to spoil another view. That's why God is singin' the blues. Forgive us Father for we know not what we do. Blame it on each other and in the name of you. Forgive us Mother for the pain we caused we`ve destroyed what's yours. That's why God is singin' the blues. Polluted all the oceans pulped all the trees. Plagued by chronic boredom we blew a hole in the atmosphere . We tore out her heart left her battered and bruised. That's why God is singin' the blues. Forgive us Father for we know not what we do. Blame it on each other and in the name of you. Forgive us Mother for the pain we caused we`ve destroyed what's yours. That's why God is singin' the blues. You may believe in evolution you may believe in God's great creation. The only thing we know for sure we got a man-made situation. We turned this whole world into a dying zoo. That's why God is singin' the blues. You better live on your feet than die on your knees. I stole that from some graffiti Lord have mercy please . Living in this Babylon keeps us confused. That's why God is singin' the blues.

Parallel Lines Don’t go giving up On your reason for rhyme It’s occurred to me That we’re on parallel lines You’ve been a victim of Lifes petty crimes All the sharp tongued kicks The deceit and the lies You’ve had your share of fools Well so have I All those know it alls Who physco analyze While their homes burn down They stand and criticize Our right to be wrong We have to fight for our lives On parallel lines We’ve been surrounded by Self centered minds It’s a playground where The blind are leading the blind And though I cannot cross That great divide I’ve begun to understand The reasons for parallel lines Parallel Lines

Charity returns You gave to me all of your guilt You gave to me all of your fears Twisted the knife right up to the hilt You gave to me reason for tears You gave me a life to endure You gave me a life on my own You gave me the pain to walk out the door You gave me your acid tongued tone Now in my awakening Your gifts are plain to see Tokens of contempt,heartbreak of misery Take back your shackles and chains Take back your toys of control Take back your weapons there just bloody and stained Leave me with whats left of my soul

Girls with their clothes on Girls with their clothes on Girls with their clothes on A pretty dress a tee shirt and jeans Their favorite coat coming apart at the seems Hey fellows do you know what I mean Girls with their clothes on When I get so lucky it’s like champagne and ice When I walk in the forest cool waters real nice When I run on the mountains where II can feel free There’s nothing I like better for my company Girls with their clothes on Girls with their clothes on A pretty dress a tee shirt and jeans Their favorite coat coming apart at the seems Hey fellows do you know what I mean Girls with their clothes on My friends and I buy the daily news It keeps us informed and it keeps us amused H scandal, the lies, the hypocrisy From front page to back it’s just pornography Girls with their clothes on Girls with their clothes on A pretty dress a tee shirt and jeans Their favorite coat coming apart at the seems Hey fellows do you know what I mean Girls with their clothes on When I was a little child I went to school Where I met all the artists and I met all the fools There’s one thing I learned at my mama’s knee Manners cost nothing and good friends come free

Crocodile Tears Don’t you wake up in the night To find that I have gone away Why not wait ‘til morning light See things in the light of day I know the score You don’t want me anymore Anyway Don’t disturb your pretty sleep To find what I have done Don’t you keep counting sheep Until the morning comes I know the score You don’t need me anymore From now on Don’t you cry your crocodile tears It’s what you wanted anyway I’m so tired of inventing alabies Every time I need to stay away Don’t deny the sandman's call He may not come again Giant oaks of beauty grow From small acorns of pain I know the score You don’t love me anymore That’s okay

give myself a good talking to I`m gonna give myself a good talking to I won`t know me when I´m through Beat myself black and blue Give myself a good talking to Shake myself awake again Question myself, tax my brain never going to be the same again Shake myself awake again I`ll be special, so unique The word`s an oyster at my feet I`ll be flying high on cloud nine When I sit myself down and give me a little piece of my mind Slap my face get myself straight I`ll be the number one candidate Be someone to whom I can relate Slap myself and get myself straight Ain`t gonna be nobody`s fool The worlds a crown, I`m the jewel I`m the exception to the rule Top of the class and I ain`t gonna be nobody`s fool

Go with the flow Don’ have to worry about this and that Don’t have to worry about the shape of your hat Don’t have to worry about that big red nose Just relax and let everything flow Go with the flow Go with the flow Don’t have to worry about that guy next door Don’t have to worry about that drunk on the floor Don’t have to worry about the things that you need Just relax and let everything breathe Go with the flow Go with the flow Don’t have to worry about the shape I’m in Don’t have to worry if I’m skinny and thin Don’t have to worry if I’m high or I’m low Sometimes I fly sometimes I row

God gave me my feet For the sanity of boredom can you expect me to stay When there’s a calling in the heavens a promise with every day There’s a world full of species that I’ve yet to meet God gave me a life to use God gave me my feet Every seems preoccupied spend their lives and time In dreams and schemes and new machines that obsess the mind There’s a magic in each moment every seconds sweet God gave me my time to use God gave me my feet I’ll not look back to the future, I’ll go forward with the past I’ll slow my pace within the race , minimize the blast I’ll take the time to step back to dullness I’ll not retreat God gave me my brain to use God gave me my feet I’ll tilt my head to the morning sun Bow lowly to flowers I pass I’ll take the time to taste lifes wine of fresh water rushing past Drink until my thirst is quenched, the fruits of earth I’ll eat God gave me my taste to use God gave me my feet I’ll feel my way along the route, never look behind I’ll smile and greet the folks I meet for there’s treasure there to find A warm hand or a kiss upon the cheek God gave me my touch to use God gave me my feet I’ll sing a song to every tree to each a verse in turn I’ll slumber softly in the grass, its secret I might learn On mountain tops I’ll shout out loud, with nothing to compete God gave me my voice to use God gave me my feet

 Punch and Judy Man When the croc comes a calling And the policeman can’t understand The mystery of the missing sausages Who’ll be the Punch and Judy Man Not I said the president Of a multi national bank I’m far too busy with naughts and ones I’ll not be the Punch and Judy Man Nor I said the top brass And saluted us from his tank There’s fights to start and wars to win I’ll not be the Punch and Judy Man Not I said the bishop with a waving of his hand There’s sins to save and souls to wash I can’t be the Punch and Judy Man Not I said the politician In a voice so posh and grand It’s not within my portfolio To be a Punch and Judy Man Not I said the add man I’ve got the world to plan I’ll put your dream in a cornflake box I’ll not be the Punch and Judy Man But then the Lord came walking Along the silver sand He said I’m all things to everyone I’ll be the Punch and Judy Man
