Hey! Hey! Hey!
MAD, MAD ROMANCE Well the dance floor is full And the lights are low And the smoke fills the room One now, is searching for a soul She sees the other, low and lonely Blue and pink collar It’s a mad, mad romance Well the trumpets are loud And the bass is playing low He just wants to dance, yeah… And she says, “That I’ll pass” The silent tears, as she runs away He stands there dyin’ Suddenly afraid… It’s a decade of dues That she has paid On the concrete paradise Oh, yeah It’s a mad, mad, mad romance It’s a mad, mad, mad romance
Mazurka 00:40
The Charmer 03:58
THE CHARMER The son of Vietnam One whose thunder did return The voices of the past Try to keep from getting burned But love is never lost And he prayed to live another Dawn… And he went to the West They say its God’s Country And he survived nature’s test Hard living is soul’s foundry… He loved the girls and let them cry He didn’t care if he lived or died And they called him (2x) The charmer (2x) A Buckeye ‘till the very, very end A few old flames and many, many friends And sons and daughters will defend Life’s currency is finally spent… Final meeting upon the mountain Charmer’s heart, an eternal fountain And they called him (7x) The charmer (3x)
Rio San Juan 06:19
RIO SAN JUAN Drivin’ on Highway 40, on old Route 66 Destiny searching, just hit or miss And my friend Nat King Cole had it right He said, “just get your kicks” While we drove, through the night Friends of mine, by my side And I see the Rio San Juan Foothills shine in the desert night And a million stars, always a awesome, pleasant sight And the mesa I see (And I think) Hippie’s delight Over there, Monument Valley; Beauty all around, always astounds In a little hurry, but now she’s gone from my sight …I see her, the Rio San Juan
THE MORNING HEAVY Mother, Mother Theresa We should have mourned you more You traveled far and worked hard To do the work of God Mother Mary, Mother Mary Is she the last of the righteous? And sister Di You’ve gone before your time And Elton sang a song in your name While the whole world watched and sobbed I hope your dying will do some good someday Besides making pataratzi rich, rich and feeling good Once an Eagle You will always fly like an angel Into my arms Find the good and praise It The morning heavy and a heavy heart Never saw your pain As I see you standing in the rain You both spoke but we didn’t listen Just watched TV and said, “It’s not our problem, it’s not our concern” Once an Eagle You will always fly like angel Into my arms (2x) Find the good and praise It The morning heavy and a heavy heart (2x) TRUTH BELLS FOR GWENDOLYN BROOKS
Sunday Walk 03:36
SUNDAY WALK Sunday begins for him Another night alone Blind man thinks its wearing thin “Can one stay the same and not know her name?” Mystery crush Still lots of pain Birds call, through the summer fog On another Sunday Walk Found a stray, lost dog A new friendship begins Another Sunday stroll, with old Rin Tin Tin Now a friend A friend with no sins His bark in the park Bird’s sad song His bark in the park His glad song Just another Sunday walk And he now walks out the door And asks oneself, “But what is it, what is it all for?” A life lived alone And he wonders why, why he cannot cry No letters No calls on the phone Sun turns to night Sunday eve’s vision Soul burns bright light Brightness by his side Helping along, ‘cause he’s blind Man’s best pal, job’s the pride Just another Sunday walk (3x)
LIVING IN AMERICA Living in America! Living in America! Hey Rosa, where are you? Hey King, can’t find you Hey X, you we can’t find Hey Rosa, where are you? Yeah, yes! Whoa, yeah! We’re Living in America (2x) Hey Jesus, where you been? Hey Buddha, how ‘bout a clue Oh Mohammed, give us strength Say God, a little help now Oh Yeah! We’re Living in America (3x) People just have to learn To love one another… We just have to change Can’t kill one another… I’m Living in America We’re Living in America We’re Living in America (5x)
