  • 03:51 Download Lyrics Her Husband Robs Banks

    Her husband robs banks

    So your husband robs banks, then for kicks he left town

    Your children's father was arrested,  smells like  Tacoma town

    In the jailhouse they use torcher, but this was long before that

     made bond with her last 3,000 dollars and he left her flat

     

    Her husband robs banks, and he went on the run

    Down through Colorado, on to Arizona

    Made it to New Mexico, that's as far as he could go

    They said that somebody got killed,

    But Stacey had no time for that

     

    She says things are looking up

    She DRINKS life from a measuring cup

    She says her glass is half full, you can't beat that

    Her hearts been breaking up, her whole world is shaking up...

    She leaves no door left unopened, and gives the lord thanks

     

    Her husband robs banks, and that does no good now

    He's out robbing on the west coast, yeah you know the neighborhood

    Her husband robs banks, you thinks she'd be mad

    And the tragedy is her children don't have a dad

    And the tragedy is her children don't have a dad,    Solo

     

    She says things are looking up

    She DRINKS life from a measuring cup

    She says her glass is half full, you can't beat that

    Her hearts been breaking up, her whole world is shaking up...

    She leaves no door left unopened, and gives the lord thanks

     

    her husband robs banks, and he's been on the fly

    baby if he's ever coming back, say he's gonna do time

    all the late nights gambling, her will is her lords

    73,000 dollars underneath her floorboards

     

    Now she can make ends meet for a month or two?

    She goes on her own little streak, a mother does what she has to do

    Yeah your husband robs banks, all you can say is thanks

    She stays home with the children, she don't know where he goes

    The Tacoma bank pressed charges, that was years before that

    News like that can knock a poor girl flat 

    News like that can knock a poor girl flat 

    News like that can knock a poor girl flat 

     

    Look underneath the floorboard darling...

    Holy of lords

     

    Holy of lords, We have come to this place to start living

    Holy of lords, We have come to this place of love

     Holy of lords, We are here to replace our misgivings

     Holy of lords, We have come to this place of love

     

    The Holy-est Lord we have known, The only Lord we have known

     We have come to this place of love

     

    Holy of lords, We have come to this place to start living

    Holy of lords, We have come to this place of love

     

    The Holy-est Lord we have known, The only Lord we have known

  • 04:01 Download Lyrics Sincerely (In My Dreams)

    Sincerely (Don’t you hear me)

     

    I live in my imagination and I’m torn apart

    Between real life and my fixation, I just love the thought of you

     

    I long to have more information but we’re worlds apart

    It isn’t an exaggeration, I just felt that spark with you

     

    What we gonna do?

     

    True you are an inspiration for my foolish heart

    I honestly have admiration for your love of art I do

     

    Those nights we had is all, Don’t you hear me

    Our passion stands alone, Sincerely in my dreams

     

    Restless now and my impatience I feel Like a falling star

    The years have flown by like a passing glance And my soul just longs for you

     

    Those nights we had still call, Don’t you hear me

    You’ll never dance alone, Sincerely in my dreams

    You Can Say Thanks (Thanksgiving Song)

     

    You can say thanks, There are so many things that are beautiful

    You can say thanks, You’ll be listing them off the whole meal

    You can say thanks, That’s why Thanksgiving day is so wonderful

    You can say thanks,, Together with friends that are real

     

    Giving it all, Giving it all

     

    You can say thanks, For inventions that make your life comfortable

    You can say thanks, That cave men invented the wheel

    You can say thanks, Some people around are responsible

    You can say thanks, It should out way the terror you feel 

     

    Giving it all, Giving it all to worry Giving it all

     

    Over the hills, Over the hills of snow

    Over the hills, Over the hills of snow

     

    You can say thanks, For the freedom to choose, it’s the principal

    You can say thanks, While you struggle at Minimum wage

    You can say thanks, You don’t have to feel so vulnerable

    You can say thanks, That the front lines are so far away

     

    Giving it all, Giving it all to worry Giving it all

    Super Moon (For Robbin Williams)

     

    Underneath the super moon, The August wind sure turned colder 

    The tragic ending came too soon, I can't believe the laughter's over

    And in fact July was too late, Parkinson's from going viral

    Had so many nights in pain, Just can't go through these trials

     

    Underneath the super moon,  The August wind sure turned colder 

    The tragic and came too soon, I can't believe the laughter's over

     And his eyes sore from pain and crying,  On stage such a stallion

    For someone who had his ship Come in,  but end up drowning 

     

    August nights in those days lives and I'll come down, Walking a wire when the clock expires

    Some clowns have painted on frowns, Keep them laughing don’t let him die

     

    Underneath the super moon, I can't believe the song is over

    How could his life and so soon, I can't believe the laughter is over

  • 03:24 Download Lyrics Rembrandt at the Road Show

    Rembrandt at the Roadshow

    Rembrandt at the Roadshow, Serious as a heart attack

    Rembrandt at the Roadshow, I hope that their prepared for that

    Headed for the west coast, All across America I go

    Maybe I’ll get an offer, Since the old folks Bought the farm Don’t know

     

    they got it at the worlds fair, when we had a little extra scratch

    Hell knows how they got there, Me I’ve never been attached

    Would have pawned it for $100 dollars, When we needed beer Me and Joe

    The fellow never heard of Rembrandt, He is not as big as Elvis I know 

     

    Rembrandt at the Roadshow, Serious as a heart attack

    Rembrandt at the Roadshow, I hope that their prepared for that

    Me and Joe’s Uncle he made a lot of claims No doubt

    never had a lot of Brains the art world use to think he had clout

     

    Famous artist like Sinatra and that, Sting, Picasso and Slash

    Want to buy this old trash

     

    Fishing for one thousand dollars, and to land on the TV show

    Just don’t want a dally, Just get the cash in my hands and go

     

    Rembrandt . Redneck. Rembrandt . Redneck

  • 02:47 Download Lyrics She's a Little Sally

    She’s a Little Sally

     

    She’s a Little Sally and She’s gone from bad to worse

    She’s a Little Sally, She wears no cloths when we play nurse

    She’s a Little Sally, Yeah it might sound all perverse

    She’s a Little Sally, Now I’m totally submersed when we play

     

    She’s a Little Sally, When a bar girl snatched her purse

    She’s a Little Sally, The lady stole my 2nd verse

    She’s a Little Sally and our drummers going berserk

    She’s a Little Sally, With the others its all work 

     and so I say, Auf Wiedersehen

     

    She’s a Little Sally, And She’s gone from bad to worse

    She’s a Little Sally, She wears no cloths when we play nurse

    She’s a Little Sally and our drummers going berserk

    She’s a Little Sally, With the others its all work

     and so I say, Auf Wiedersehen

     

    She’s a Little Sally

    She’s a Little Sally

  • 04:30 Download Lyrics Lunch at the Salvation Army

    Lunch at the Salvation Army

     

    At lunch I went to sit down and all tables were mostly filled

    There was a cute little girl out of the corner of my eye

    I knew she'd fit my bill

     

    She was sitting with a financier, and some of the recruits

    She didn't look like she was even out of school

    yes a baby in a fine birthday suit

    Her name was Sara, I worked with her too

     

    I wasn't planning on making it much of a routine

    Still can't help but notice the tears, those kids all have dreams

     

    Most new volunteers come back, feels good to be a part of this scene

    The time just flew right past, and our 1st date was over

    I had a lucky feeling inside, like I found a four leaf clover

     

    lunch at the Salvation Army, lunch at the Salvation Army

     

    They seemed to have a working routine

    Eager to learn and be a part of the team

    They all showed me somebody really cares

    lunch at the Salvation Army you know I'll be there

     

    I could barely believe what my eyes see

    All of the people there caring so much about me

     

    lunch at the Salvation Army, lunch at the Salvation Army 2x

     

    I was happy with Sara there working just loading trucks

    I felt ecstatic still I didn't show it that much

    Inside of an hour I was fussing and combing my hair

    we all have common interests in some things and we always can share

    lunch at the Salvation Army you know I'll be there

    lunch at the Salvation Army, lunch at the Salvation Army

  • 02:07 Download Lyrics The Facts of Life

    Are these the facts? The facts of life

    Can we transpose, Perhaps revise

     Define the meaning of our fire

    Find the reason for desire

     

    Are these the facts? The facts of life

    Even though we hear the cries

     Were not all villains, In suits and ties

    Lets find forgiveness, Warmth and light

     

    Are these the facts? The facts of life

    Even though, Its no surprise

     We find the villain, is hypnotized

    Lets find forgiveness, Warmth and light

    Might never know

    Coffee and Cannabis

    I hit the zone

    Hemp Fest, raining again

    There’s no need to stay home, All lit up and bombed

     

    Coffee and Cannabis

    It’s how we’re known

    Grunge loving anarchists

    Some things you never outgrow, Got Nirvana on    

     

    Making it legal to begin again

    Making it easier, I’m making new friends…

     

    Coffee and Cannabis

    at the Freemont troll

    a Venti Java fix

    I begin to plateau, Got my dark shades on

     

    Coffee and Cannabis

    In self defense

    Just need a cup or so

    And I’m fairly content, though the times are hard

     

    The State made it easier to just breathe in

    There making it easy to live again, to live again

     

    Solo 3xG     been a long time coming 4x

     

    Coffee and Cannabis

    I made parole 

    It could be hazardous

    but its good for my soul. Albeit Avant-Garde

     

    Coffee and Cannabis

    Its how their grown

    I’ll be there advocate

    Let us reap what we’ve sown, Put it on your bank card
