Muskrat Love
Muskrat, muskrat candlelight
Doin' the town and doin' it right
In the evenin'
It's pretty pleasin'

Muskrat susie, muskrat sam
Do the jitterbug out in muskrat land
And they shimmy
And sammy's so skinny

And they whirled and they twirled and they tangoed
Singin' and jingin' the jango
Floatin' like the heavens above
It looks like muskrat love

Nibbling on bacon, chewin' on cheese
Sammy says to susie honey, would you please be my missus?
And she say yes
With her kisses

And now he's ticklin' her fancy
Rubbin' her toes
Muzzle to muzzle, now anything goes
As they wriggle, and sue starts to giggle

And they whirled and they twirled and they tangoed
Singin' and jingin' the jango
Floatin' like the heavens above
It looks like muskrat love

La da da da da ...back to top
Wind Wave
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1973
Found on hat trick and horse with no name.

Sometimes when I'm down on my luck, feelin' dizzy
My mind reels back to those days in the city
When early in the morning take a trip, it's so pretty
I could never understand why it wasn't so grand

I got a hankerin' for a wind wave
I got it through and through
I got a hankerin' for somethin' home made
It's got to be brand new

Early in the morning when the sun comes up
I'm gonna grab a fishin' pole and a sleepin' bag roll
Head out for the land of the dumb but the pretty
I won't stay long but you never know

I got a hankerin' for a wind wave
I got it through and through
I got a hankerin' for somethin' home made
It's got to be brand new

I got a hankerin' for a wind wave
I got it through and through
I got a hankerin' for somethin' home made
It's got to be brand new

Sometimes when I'm down on my luck, feelin' dizzy
My mind reels back to those days in the city
Sometimes when I'm down on my luck, feelin' dizzy
My mind reels back to those days in the city
Sometimes when I'm down on my luck, feelin' dizzy
My mind reels back to those days in the city ...back to top
She's Gonna Let You Down
Written by gerry beckley, ©1973
Found on hat trick and highway.

We're afraid she's gonna let you down
Take your money and drop you to the ground
Wouldn't want to see you messed around
After all the love you think you've found
She's gonna let you down

Doesn't matter what we say
Love's the stubbornest game to play
Given time you might see it our way
And we'll be sorry boy until that day
She's gonna break away

Remember all the times you helped us through
Now here's our chance to do the same for you
Guess the thing to do is wait around
Lend a hand when you are on the ground
She's gonna let you down
She's gonna let you down
She's gonna let you downback to top
Rainbow Song
Window frames a picture of winter time within my room
Sometimes then I laugh at the funny times we had in school
Blowing leaves, broken dreams
Seventeen, dancing queen, dancing queen

I am asleep on a rainbow
Hiding from the wake of the tide
I am asleep on a rainbow
Hoping for the rest of the ride

Can you feel it moving inside of you? can you let it go?
The purple ghost of england in winter time, and who I used to know
Blowing leaves, broken dreams
Seventeen, dancing queen, dancing queen

I am asleep on a rainbow
Hiding from the wake of the tide
I am a sleep on a rainbow
Hoping for the rest of the ride

Blowing leaves, broken dreams
Seventeen, dancing queen, dancing queen

I am asleep on a rainbow
Hiding from the wake of the tide
I am asleep on a rainbow
Hoping for the rest of the ride
I am asleep on a rainbow
Hiding from the wake of the tide
I am asleep on a rainbow
Hoping for the rest of the rideback to top
Submarine Ladies
Written by gerry beckley, ©1973
Found on hat trick, heard, and highway.

Why do you laugh at me when you know I really care
You sometimes act as though I'm not even there
And yet if you did to me the things I do to you
I would surely say we're through

Don't you know that I love you
I was hoping you'd love me, too
Don't you know that I love you, love you

If I seem to you indiff'rent once or twice
It's because I was feelin' quite that way
And the time I hung up the phone and didn't speak again
Well, it's funny to look back then

Didn't I love you (love you)
Didn't I love you all the time
Didn't you need me (need me)
Wasn't it a long, hard climb

Don't you know that I love you
I was hoping you'd love me, too
Don't you know that I love you, love youback to top
It's Life
Written by dan peek, ©1973
Found on hat trick and highway.

The child breaks each moment of sadness for our sakes
Leaving, trying his best to believe then
Hoping this dream will come true
Sadness is only a face for you

I will try like the devil to bear your names
Anything for you
In only a moment your life can change

Still lake, rocking the boat it's not too late
Leaving, trying your best to believe then
Hoping this dream will come true
Sadness is only a face for you

I will try like the devil to bear your names
Anything for you
In only a moment your life can change

You fell through the window and down on the floor
You found a direction, you hope will say more
With your life, it's taken every one in view

The people are pretty
The flowers are, too
You don't get to heaven
If they don't say you do

'cause it's life and it's taken every one of you
And it's true
I'd like to take you but I don't think there's room for two
I'd like to take, I'd like to take you
I'd like to take, I'd like to take you
I'd like to take, I'd like to take you
I'd like to take, I'd like to take you
I'd like to take, I'd like to take you
I'd like to take, I'd like to take you
I'd like to take, I'd like to take you
I'd like to take, I'd like to take you
I'd like to take, I'd like to take you ...back to top
Hat Trick
You, can I make it known
I'd like to take you home
You been away so long
I'd like to see you

But when I saw you at the local hop
I tried to take you but you made me stop
Then I saw that you were dancing with a rent-a-cop
Whoa, whoa!

The minute you pulled me through
You thought that then you knew
If not today, I'd find a way
To get to you

Just a little of nothin'
That's all you had the time to give
Just a little of nothin'
Ain't gonna make it worthwhile for me

If you'd only have listened
You'd have heard every word I said
Just a little of nothin'
Ain't gonna make it worthwhile for me
Da, da, da ...

Just a little of nothin' (just a little of nothin')
Just a little of nothin' (just a little of nothin')
Just a little of nothin' (just a little of nothin')
Just a little of nothin' (just a little of nothin')

Newton-under-roseberry topping
And it's cold and it's wet
And you feel like you're part of all time

Living in the gap between the echoes
Feeling it hot
And feeling it cold

As long as there are fish in the sea
Have a cup of tea
Oh, as long as there are fish in the sea
Have a cup of tea

'cause you are running from the ring of the golden bell
Like a bat out of hell
You are running from the ring of the golden bell
Like a bat out of hell
You are running from the ring of the golden bell
Like a bat out of hell
You are running from the ring of the golden bell
Like a bat out of hell

There's a lady across the hall
She's telling me it's all right (all right)
I'm tryin' to give her my all
She's sayin' I'm uptight
Hell of a way to spend an afternoon

Saw a movie tonight
Got frightened and broke down (broke down)
Got a call in the night
My old lady just hit town
Take her away, she's tryin' to turn me round
I'm nowhere to be found

I can't unread the pages I've already read
And I can't feed these ages left in my head
They're already dead, yeahback to top
Molten Love
Written by dewey bunnell, ©1973
Found on hat trick and highway.

First she says kings
Then he says aces
It gets pretty hard for a lady to tell
The hearts from the faces

Don't be afraid I know I will bring you home
Don't be afraid I know I will bring you home
To me, to me, me

I want to carry you across a threshold of fireflies
And violet stones, all alone (all alone)
Volcanic silver clouds fill pools and canyons around us
All around (all around)

But molten love
Cooled by your kisses
Take me down, take me down

So, don't be afraid I know I will bring you home
Don't be afraid I know I will bring you home
To me, me, to me, me

Molten love
Cooled by your kisses
Take me down, take me down
Yes, molten love
Cooled by your kisses
Take me down, take me down

So, don't be afraid I know I will bring you home
No, don't be afraid I know I will bring you home
Oh, don't be afraid I know I will bring you home
Don't be afraid I know I will bring you home
No, don't be afraid I know I will bring you home ...back to top
Green Monkey
When the deep blue night is running close on your track
And you can feel the green monkey crawlin' across your back
Don't take me so real that you forget how to feel
Don't let the threat of the dagger turn your heart into steel

Smell the perfume of the silent dream
Fly the ocean, read a story to me
Speak the wisdom of a redwood tree
Speak to me

So you think that star cluster shining bright in the sky
Will speak the fate of your evening, tell the truth to your lie
Don't let the features you read control the tickets you buy
Soon as you learn that you live, you're just beginning to die

Smell the perfume of the silent dream
Fly the ocean, read a story to me
Speak the wisdom of a redwood tree
Speak to me

Smell the perfume of the silent dream
Fly the ocean, read a story to me
Speak the wisdom of a redwood tree
Speak to meback to top
Willow Tree Lullaby
Written by dan peek, ©1973
Found on hat trick.

Don't wait for me at the willow tree
Love will be waiting for you
The wind through the leaves plays a symphony
Harmony, rhapsody too

Don't bend with the wind
Love must not end but begin

Don't bend with the wind
Your love must not end but begin

La, la, la, la ...back to top
Goodbye
Goodbye, mrs. sorrow
Hope you're feelin' better tomorrow night
Don't put up a fight
It'll do you no good

Hello, uncle freedom
I've seen them down on their knees for you
Nothing they wouldn't do
To have you along

I got too many problems
They just don't understand
They think their every wish is my command

Oh, no, sister susie
You're in a win or lose affair
Wish I could be there
To help you along

Oh, yes, brother michael
We all have every faith in you
And everything you do
All the way round

I got too many problems
They just don't understand
They think their every wish is my command

Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbyeback to top
