Mama Nature Said
Mama nature said
It's murder what you've done
I sent you forth my brightest world
Now it's nearly gone

Birds and bees
Been telling me
You can't see
The forest for the trees

You cover up your lies
With sympathies
And I got no solutions
To your persecution

Mama nature said
I can't believe it's true
I gave you life and food for thought
Look what did you do

You're killing my rivers
Drowning my baby streams
Day by day by day by day
I hear them scream

I'm so disillusioned
I'm so disillusioned

Mama nature said
You're guilty of this crime
Now it's not just a matter of fact
But just a matter of time

Cruel will be the vengeance
So savage is the deed that's done
And I've got no solutions
To your own pollutionsback to top
The Hero and the Madman
The hero he rode a white horse
Across the desert to where his woman was
He'd been riding for four days
When he saw the tower where she was locked

In the moonlight he left his old steed
Near the drawbridge that he crossed
And by way of a rope ladder
He tip-toed to where his woman was

If I recall you're the actor
Who followed the stars
Searching for
The lost city of mars

Hoping time would heal the scars
Knowing fate held no bars
Are you the one
That I think you are?

Are you the hero or are you the madman?

The madman climbed
The steeple spire
Go higher said the crowd
From down below

But...the world's on fire cried the madman
From the steeple spire
You're a liar cried the crown
From down below

The madman climbed the steeple spire
And let a crystal ball tear
Fall on the crown
From down below

If I recall you're the actor
Who took to the stage
Set the world ablaze
With your anger and your rage

With every new leaf
You turned and wrote a new page
Cleverly concealing
Your real age

Those that knew you
Were always quite amazed
Are you the one
Who can take this praise?

Are you the hero or are you the madman?

You're the only one
Who can save us
Said the wizard
Or all is lostback to top
Slow Blues
My baby don't love me
My baby's gone and made me sad
My baby don't love me
My baby's gone and made me sad

A hard hearted woman
A hard hearted woman true
My baby don't love me
My baby don't love me

Oh baby, let the flags fly at half mast
Let this darkened hour drift past
Oh baby, you don't know
How much I'm missing you

All my tears are falling
Slow blues is calling
Oh baby, you don't know
How much I'm missing you

Oh baby, baby, baby, go tell this crazy world the true tale
Please let loose this lover's ship to sail
Oh baby, you don't know
How much I'm missing you

You don't know how much I love you
Oh no no no no no

My baby don't love me
My baby's gone and made me sad
My baby don't love me
My baby's gone and made me sadback to top
The Rocker
I am your main man if you're looking for trouble
I'll take no lip 'cause no ones tougher than me
If I kicked your face you'd soon be seeing double
Hey little girl, keep your hands off me 'cause I'm a rocker

I love to rock and roll
I get my records from the rock on stall
Sweet rock and roll
Teddy boy, he's got them all

Down at the juke joint me and the boys were stompin'
Bippin' an a boppin', telling a dirty joke or two
In walked this chick and I knew she was up to something
I kissed her right there out of the blue

I said hey baby, meet me I'm a tough guy
Got my cycle outside, you wanna try?
She just looked at me and rolled them big eyes
And said ooh I'd do anything for you 'cause you're a rocker

That's right I'm a rocker

I love to rock and roll
I get my records from the rock on stall
Sweet rock and roll
Teddy boy, he's got them allback to top
Vagabond of the Western World
I could tell you the story of a vagabond
A playboy of the western world
One day by chance he came upon
A fair young maid, a country girl

He told her that he loved her
And he took all of her silver
He told her that he needed her too
He said hey baby, you got eyes of blue
But he was a vagabond

Blue eyes, oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
The kind of eyes that say I do eyes
Oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
Oh baby blue, oh blue eyes

He roamed around the cities
Searching for his fortune and fame
No lady ever got to know his name
Shame, but that was his game

Gave a girl a baby boy
He said this child is my pride and joy
I'm busy running wild and free
Make sure he grows up like me
And I'm a vagabond

Blue eyes, oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
The kind of eyes that say I do eyes
Oh baby blue, oh blue eyes
Oh baby blue, oh blue eyes

Oh I could tell you a story of a vagabond
He was a playboy of the western world
He wore an earring in his left ear
You see his father he was a gypsy

You just might meet him upon the highway
Pretty fine dancer too
But he's leave you blue, he'd leave
He'd leave you womanback to top
Little Girl in Bloom
Little girl in bloom
With happy heart you wipe aside
Any sadness, sorrow or gloom
Tomorrow you'll be a blushing bride
That loves her blushing groom

Little girl in bloom
You watch the men play cricket
From the window in your room
See the ball go from bat to wicket
Pass away the afternoon

Little girl in bloom
Carries a secret
The child she carries in her womb
She feels something sacred
She's gonna be a mammy soon

When your daddy comes home
Don't tell him till alone
When your daddy comes back
Go tell him the facts
Just relax and see how he's gonna react

Little girl in bloom
All the clouds will go drifting by
So sing your lullabying tune
Every word is in your eyes
As you sit and softly croon

Little girl in bloom
Your love it fills the air
With the scent of the sweetest, sweet perfume
You feel so good you just don't care
You're gonna be a mammy soon

When your daddy comes home
Don't tell him till alone
When your daddy comes back
Go tell him the facts
Just relax and see how he's gonna reactback to top
Gonna Creep up on You
I'm gonna creep up on you
I'm gonna creep up on you
I'm gonna creep up on you
I'm gonna gonna

The writing on the wall showed the scandal
Pointed out the victim of the vandal
The lady was upset by the angle
Scratch your back and hot to handle

I'm gonna creep up on you
I'm gonna creep up on you
I'm gonna creep up on you
I'm gonna gonna

You're sly, you're slick, you're sleek, you're outstanding
My legs are week, my heart, it beats, it's pounding
Soon you're gonna weep in your sleepless surrounding
`cause I'm the one taking you down for grounding

I'm gonna creep up on you
I'm gonna creep up on you
I'm gonna creep up on you
I'm gonna gonna

Little lady let me take a little bit of your loveback to top
A Song for While I'm Away
These words I wrote, play and sing to you
Do not convey the love I brought and bring to you
For this is a song for while I'm away
To say all the things I'd love to say

You are my life, my everything, you're all I have
You are my hopes, my dreams, my world come true
You're all I have
Please heed me now these words I have to say

Now I'm headed for the border
You see this song it ends right at the start
I swore when I was younger
No one would win my heart

And far away hills look greener still
But soon they'll all slip away
It's then I'll be returning
And I'll be coming home to stay

You are my life, my everything, you're all I have
You are my hopes, my dreams, my world come true
You're all I have
Please heed me now these words I have to sayback to top
Whiskey in the Jar
As I was goin' over the cork and kerry mountains
I saw captain farrell and his money he was countin'
I first produced my pistol and then produced my rapier
I said stand and deliver or the devil he may take ya

Musha ring dum a doo dum a da
Whack for my daddy-o
Whack for my daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar-o

I took all of his money and it was a pretty penny
I took all of his money and I brought it home to molly
She swore that she'd love me, never would she leave me
But the devil take that woman for you know she tricked me easy

Being drunk and weary I went to molly's chamber
Takin' my money with me and I never knew the danger
For about six or maybe seven in walked captain farrell
I jumped up, fired off my pistols and I shot him with both barrels

Now some men like the fishin' and some men like the fowlin'
And some men like ta hear a cannon ball a roarin'
Me I like sleepin' specially in my molly's chamber
But here I am in prison, here I am with a ball and chain yeahback to top
Black Boys on the Corner
One of the black boys said
I need none of your pity
It's your mama that don't
Like you loose in the city

But stick about, take note
Take a tip, take no back lip
Come come a little closer
Let me see you snap your fingertip

Because standing on the corner
Just might suit you or maybe baby
There's something else you wanna do

Like rolling dice, nice
Like shooting pool, hey that's cool

I'm a little black boy and I don't know my place
I'm just a little black boy, I just threw my ace
I'm a little black boy, recognize my face

One of the black boys said
I'm a giving a warning
People been putting me down
I'm so tired I'm yawning

A new suit, pretty boots to boot
And I'm feeling slick
Gonna go to town, look around
And pull a chick

Of course standing on the corner
Might suit you or maybe baby
There's something else that you wanna do

Like playing poker, joker
Like to back a race, ace

I'm a little black boy and I don't know my proper place
I'm a little black boy, get my head in it's space
I'm a little black boy, I just play my bass
I'm a little black boy, it's no disgraceback to top
Randolph's Tango
The senorita took off her bobby socks
She said she's gonna wear a skirt that shocks
She's pulling out all the stops
To get her randolph back again

Meanwhile randolph, he's back at the ranch
He's getting ready for tonight's song and dance
He's doesn't know he doesn't stand a chance
His last affair will be his last romance

The senorita will be there waiting
Don't go my randolph slow tango with me

Underneath the latin moonlight
The danced and seen a falling star in flight
To the strum of guitars she held him tight
She wants her randolph back again

Meanwhile it's worthwhile for randolph to wait
'till he gets the nerve then he won't hesitate
He doesn't know but he's just bit the bait
He just asked if he could make a date

The senorita will be there waiting
Don't go my randolph slow tango with me

The senorita's heart is in love
She wearing white tonight, looks as pure as a dove
She's thanking God and all the heavenly stars above
Randolph's romance is back again

Meanwhile randolph smiles and says he'll give her ten
She doesn't come so he just counts again
And he's been there since he does not know when
He's thinks she's stood him up but in the end

The senorita won't keep him waiting
Don't go my randolph slow tango with me

Ooh la-la...
Senorita dance cheek to cheek
Ooh la-la...
We will dance off into the skyback to top
Broken Dreams
Have you ever had your dreams broken?
It really messes up your heart
You want to stop right there
And go right back to the start

You got to leave the town you're living in
Oh I'm leaving, I'm leaving on the next train
My dreams have been broken
I don't think I'll ever be the same

It's a bad, bad feeling when all the things
That you've worked for just don't seem to turn out right
Well this happened to me last night
I woke up this morning and said I must be going

You see my dreams have been broken
I don't think I have
The strength to carry on
So I'll catch the next train southbound

I don't want no pity
Not from you or anyone
It's just my dreams been broken
And I got to tell someone before I go crazy

I'll be leaving
I'll be leaving
On that next train going southbound
Yes, I'll be leaving on that next train

You see my dreams been broken
And I just can't
Take the pain
I've got to move on

You see my dreams been broken
And I don't have
The strength
To carry onback to top
