La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

WE'RE busy doin' nothin'
Workin' the whole day through
Tryin' to find lots of things not to do
We're busy goin' nowhere
Isn't it just a crime
We'd like to be unhappy, but
We never do have the time

I have to watch the river
To see that it doesn't stop
And stick around the rosebuds
So they'll know when to pop
And keep the crickets cheerful
They're really a solemn bunch
Hustle, bustle
And only an hour for lunch

La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

We're busy doin' nothin'
Workin' the whole day through
Tryin' to find lots of things not to do
We're busy goin' nowhere
Isn't it just a crime
We'd like to be unhappy, but
We never do have the time

I have to wake the Sun up
He's liable to sleep all day
And then inspect the rainbows
So they'll be bright and gay
I must rehearse the songbirds
To see that they sing in key
Hustle, bustle
And never a moment free

(Orchestral Break)

We're busy doin' nothin'
Workin' the whole day through
Tryin' to find lots of things not to do
We're busy going nowhere
Isn't it just a crime
We'd like to be unhappy, but
We never do have the time

I have to meet a turtle
I'm teachin' him how to swim
Then I have to shine the dewdrops
You know they're looking rather dim
I told my friend, the robin
I'd buy him a brand new vest
Hustle, bustle
We never do have
We never do have
We never do, never do
Never do, never do, never do have the time
Never do have the time

Tagging Kacee and David

BLUE skies smiling on me
Nothing but blue skies do I see
Blue birds singing a song
Nothing but blue skies from now on.

I never saw the sun shining so bright
When you're in love everythings right
Watching all the days hurrying by
When you're in love my how they fly

Those blue DAYs all of them gone
And nothing but blue SKY from now on

Scat singing/Instruments

I never saw the sun shining so bright
When you're in love everythings right
Watching all the days hurrying by
When you're in love my how they fly

Those blue days all of them gone
And nothing but blue sky from now on

There's a fog upon L.A.
And my friends have lost their way
"We'll be over soon," they said
Now they've lost themselves instead

Please don't be long
Please don't you be very long
Please don't be long
Or I may be asleep

Well, it only goes to show
And I told them where to go
Ask a policeman on the street
There's so many there to meet

Please don't be long
Please don't you be very long
Please don't be long
Or I may be asleep

Now it's past my bed, I know
And I'd really like to go
Soon will be the break of DAY
Sitting here on BLUE Jay Way

Please don't be long
Please don't you be very long
Please don't be long
Or I may be asleep

Please don't be long
Please don't you be very long
Please don't be long
Or I may be asleep

Please don't be long
Please don't you be very long
Please don't be long
Or I may be asleep

Don't be long (X7)

No, this is not the time or the place for a broken hearted
'Cause this is the end of the rainbow
Where no one can be too sad
No, I don't wanna leave, but I must keep moving ahead
'Cause my life belongs to the other side
Behind the great ocean's waves.

Chorus:
Bye bye Hollywood Hills, I'm gonna
Miss you, wherever I go I'm gonna
Come back to walk these STREETs again
Bye bye, Hollywood Hills forever.

Thank you for the morning walks on the sweet sunset
And for the hot night moments
For the fantasy in my bed
I take a part of you with me now and you won't get it back
And a part of me will stay here, you can keep it forever, dear
Wooaoo...

Chorus:
Bye bye Hollywood Hills, I'm gonna
Miss you, wherever I go I'm gonna
Come back to walk this streets again
Remember that we had fun together.

Bye bye rodeo girls, I'm gonna
Love you, wherever I go I'm gonna
Come back so we can play together
Bye bye, Hollywood Hills forever.

Long distance love doesn't work
All the miles in between getting lonely
No, I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go.

Chorus:
Bye bye Hollywood Hills, I'm gonna
Miss you, wherever I go I'm gonna
Come back to walk these streets again
Bye bye

Chorus:
Bye bye Hollywood Hills, I'm gonna
Miss you, wherever I go I'm gonna
Come back to walk these streets again
Remember that we had fun together.

Bye bye rodeo girls, I'm gonna
Love you, wherever I go I'm gonna
Come back so we can play together
Bye bye, Hollywood Hills forever.

Hollywood Hills forever,
Yeah,
Hollywood Hills forever.

It's the age of revolution

Princes and lawyers played with the English elite
Years of repression started a noise from the STREETS

Chorus:
The age of revolution, the age of revolution
From Bangalore to Kingston, the age of revolution
Go and get your pads on, take your place in the sun
From Bangalore to Kingston, the age of revolution

It's the age of revolution. It's the age of revolution

Mankad in Madras, but suddenly Sunil is king
Kids in the valleys, bats bound together with string, oh yeah!

"Time to take the new ball, the dollars and the rubles
Stormont to the Oval, we're all going global"

(Chorus)

It's the age of revolution. It's the age of revolution
It's the age of revolution. It's the age of revolution

Here's to the future, Punjab and Tamil Nadu
Always remember the passion of '32, oh yeah, yeah!

"Always denied entry by the English gentry
Now we're driving Bentleys, playing 20/20"

"I come to this magnificent house of worship tonight because my conscience leaves me no other choice... A true REVOLUTION of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war, 'This way of settling differences is not just.' This business of burning human beings with napalm, of filling our nation's homes with orphans and widows, of injecting poisonous drugs of hate into the veins of peoples normally humane, of sending men home from dark and bloody battlefields physically handicapped and psychologically deranged, cannot be reconciled with wisdom, justice, and love..."

When you were standing in the wake of devastation
When you were waiting on the edge of the unknown
And with the cataclysm raining down, insides crying save me now
You were there impossibly alone.

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation
You build up hope but failure's all you've known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go, let it go.

And in the burst of light that blinded every angel
As if the sky had blown the heavens into stars
You felt the gravity of temper grace falling into empty space
No one there to catch you in their arms

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation
You build up all the failures all you've known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go, let it go.

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation
You build up all the failures all you've known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go,

Let it go
Let it go
Let it go
Let it go

Do you feel cold and lost in desperation
You build up all the failures all you've known
Remember all the sadness and frustration
And let it go, let it go.

Won't YOU help to sing
Another song of freedom?

Redemption songs,
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,

How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look? Ooh!
Some say it's just a part of it:
We've got to fulfill the Book.

Mister Marvin Middle Class is really in a stew
Wond'rin' what the younger generation's coming to
And the taste of his martini doesn't please his bitter tongue
Blame it on the Rolling STONES.

Blame it on the Stones; blame it on The Stones
You'll feel so much better, knowing you don't stand alone
Join the accusation; save the bleeding nation
Get it off your shoulders; blame it on The Stones

Mother tells the ladies at the bridge club every day
Of the rising price of tranquilizers she must pay
And she wonders why the children never seem to stay at home
Blame it on the Rolling Stones.

Blame it on the Stones; Blame it on The Stones
You'll feel so much better, knowing you don't stand alone
Join the accusation; save the bleeding nation
Get it off your shoulders; blame it on The Stones

Father's at the office, nightly working all the time
Trying to make the secretary change her little mind
And it bothers him to read about so many broken homes
Blame it on those Rolling Stones.

Blame it on the Stones; Blame it on The Stones
You'll feel so much better knowing you don't stand alone
Join the accusation; same the bleeding nation
Get it off your shoulders; blame it on The Stones

Blame it on The Stones, blame it on The Stones.

I had visions, I was in them
I was looking into the mirror
To see a little bit clearer
Rottenness and evil in me
Fingertips have memories
Mine can't forget the curves of your body
And when I feel a bit naughty
I run it up the flagpole and see who salutes
(But no one ever does)
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot cause I'm in hell
Been around the world and found
That only stupid people are breeding
The cretins cloning and feeding
And I don't even own a tv
Put me in the hospital for nerves
And then they had to commit me
You told them all I was crazy
They cut off my legs now I'm an amputee, god damn you
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot cause I'm in hell
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And it's a sin to live so well
I want to publish zines
And rage against machines
I want to pierce my TONGUE
It doesn't hurt, it feels fine
The trivial sublime
I'd like to turn off time
And kill my mind
You kill my mind
Paranoia, paranoia
Everybody's coming to get me
Just say you never met me
I'm going underground with the moles digging holes
Hear the voices in my head
I swear to god it sounds like they're snoring
But if you're bored then you're boring
The agony and the irony, they're killing me
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot cause I'm in hell
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And it's a sin to live so well

This is a song for Father's Day

She remembers nights
Shadows on the wall
Monsters in her dreams

He's on his way
Footsteps in the hall
He'll scare them away before he leaves

Daddy's home
Daddy's home
It's gonna be alright

The funny TIMEs
He would play the fool
And he would laugh away the tears

Her growing pains
And bitter lessons
Hugging away her fears

Daddy's home
Daddy's home

She will always be her daddy's little girl
She will always miss his kiss
She's living her life, doing the best she can
Wishing she could say it one more time

Daddy's home
Daddy's home
It's gonna be alright

If there's one thing
She can do for daddy now
It would be to share his love

Hugging the grandchild
he never knew
She cries to the sky above

Daddy's home
Daddy's home
It's gonna be alright

Down our long dusty driveway
I didn't want to go
But I set out with tears in my eyes wondering
DADDY took me by the hand
Looked out at the school bus and his little man and said
"Don't worry boy it will be all right"

Chorus

Cause I took this walk you're walking now
Boy, I've been in your shoes
You can't hold back the hands of time
It's just something you've got to do
So dry your eyes I understand just what you're going through
Cause I took this same walk with my old man
Boy, I've been in your shoes

Down our long dusty driveway
I set my mind to go
I was eighteen and wild and free and wondering
Daddy took me by the hand
Looked at the world and at his grown man and said,
"Don't worry boy it will be all right"

Down our long dusty driveway
This time we both would go
He had grown old and gray
And his mind was wandering
Daddy took me by the hand
Said, "I know where we're going and I understand
Don't worry boy it will be all right"

Chorus

The city streets are empty now
(The lights don't shine no more)
And so the songs are way down low
(Turning, turning, turning)
A sound that flows into my mind
(The echoes of the daylight)
Of everything that is alive
(In my blue world)

I TURN TO STONE
When you are gone
I turn to stone
Turn to stone
When you comin' home
I can't go on

The dying embers of the night
(A fire that slowly fades till dawn)
Still glow upon the wall so bright
(Turning, turning, turning)
The tired streets that hide away
(From here to everywhere they go)
Roll past my door into the day
(In my blue world)

Chorus
I turn to stone
When you are gone
I turn to stone
Turn to stone
When you comin' home

I can't go on
Turn to stone
When you are gone
I turn to stone

Yes, I'm turnin' to stone
'Cause you ain't comin' home
Why you ain't comin' home
If I'm turnin' to stone?
You've been gone for so long
And I can't carry on
Yes, I'm turnin', I'm turnin'
I'm turnin' to stone

The dancing shadows on the wall
(The two step in the hall)
Are all I see since you've been gone
(Turning, turning, turning)
Through all I sit here and I wait
(I turn to stone, I turn to stone)
You will return again someday
(To my blue world)

There's no place that I'd rather be than right here

Rednecks, white socks, and blue ribbon beer

We're a little too rowdy and a little too loud

I'm afraid I couldn't resist the obvious

THERE STANDS THE GLASS ...
That will ease all my pain ...
That will settle my brain ...
It's my first one to day ...
There stands the glass ...
That will hide all my tears ...
That will drown all my fears ...
Brother, I'm on my way. ... ...

CHORUS
I'm wond'ring where you are tonight
I'm wond'ring if you all right
I wonder if you think of me
In my mis-e-ry
There stands the glass
Fill it up to the brim
Till my troubles grow dim
It's my first one to day.

Texas Woman says:
Ricky got the quarters for the table and broke
While I pulled hard on the sorrow and smoke
Raising up my bottle I looked for a chance
As you set your GLASS down on the bar with a glance at
Me

Down at the Horseshoe Lounge
Shuffleboard and neon light
Down at the Horseshoe Lounge
Cigarettes and whiskey tonight

Ricky said 'She's out of your league, let her go'
As I watched you pick your partner on that old dance
floor
I know it didn't work out the first time we tried
But I'd do anything to have you by my side again.

Down at the Horseshoe Lounge
Peel the label off a miller light
Down at the Horseshoe Lounge
I sit here thinking 'bout you every night.

Were you the one who faltered
Was I the one who strayed
Maybe God left us out of the plans he made
So here's to missed beginnings and things that never
start
For these are the ghosts that run around in my heart
When I see that where I'm going isn't where I want to
Be I get the urge to look you up see if you would come
and meet me
Down at the Horseshoe Lounge
Hey Buddy have you got a light
Down at the Horseshoe Lounge
One more and I'll be alright

Down at the Horseshoe Lounge
Peel the label off a Miller Light
Down at the Horseshoe Lounge
I sit here thinkin' 'bout you every night.

Ricky got the quarters for the table and broke
While I pulled hard on the sorrow and smoke

Close up the bar you know the gates of the brewery
She's out there every night
And she sure ain't drinkin' tea
I love that woman, she's the best one that I had
But she's got this habit now and it sure is getting bad

That WHISKEY drinkin' woman
Is making a poor man out of me

She's got bottles in the kitchen
Even got them in my bed
Most times I see her now
She's three part out of her head
Don't know where I went wrong
I sure try to treat her right
But it sure upsets me
Seein' her juiced up every night

That whiskey drinkin' woman
Is makin' a poor man out of me

Got to solve this problem
Won't you help me find the key
The way that things are going
I'll have to buy the distillery
She just stands there smilin'
With a whiskey in each hand
Got to think of something
Don't know how much I can stand

That whiskey drinkin' woman
Is makin' a poor man out of me

Got to get myself together, start workin' something out
Maybe if I tried some booze, I'd know what it's about
I love that woman, she's the best one that I had
But she's got this habit now
And it sure is gettin' bad

That whiskey drinkin' woman
Is making a poor man out of me
