When Boy Meets Girl

First it’s baseball
Arcades in the mall
Skippin out of study hall to hang with the guys
Then it’s fast cars
Rock n roll guitars
Lightin up behind the barn and not knowin why

*Chorus*
But his life is about to change
He’s never gonna be the same
And he’ll be livin in a different world
When boy meets girl

One smile one look
He’s nearly on the hook
Got it bad and feelin good all over inside
He aint got a clue
What hes goin through
But he’s going to just give him time

[Chorus]

He never polished his boots before
Never thought about what he wore
Never knew he could feel like that
Now there aint no way he can ever go back

Oh yeah

[Chorus] x2

Suddenly Single

In the pale neon light of a Saturday night
You’ll see him walk up to the bar
He’ll size up the ladies, the ‘no’s” and the “maybe’s”
Till he finds one who’ll let down her guard
Then the band on his hand gets slipped off again
And his disarming charm starts to work
And with a drink and a lie, in the blink of an eye
Something amazing occurs

He’s suddenly single
Instantly free
And for three or four hours
He’s the man of her dreams
He acts like there’s no one waiting at home
He’ll be suddenly single
Till he’s suddenly gone

He sneaks through the door at a quarter to four
But tonight there’s no one to wake
The note that she wrote him says, “I’ve given up hoping
I’d be able to change you someday.”
He sits on the bed, shaking head
A man in complete disbelief
He knows what he’s lost
Oh, but he never thought
Someday, he’d really be

Suddenly single
Instantly free
And for the rest of his life
She’ll haunt his dreams
And now there’ll be no one waiting at home
He’s suddenly single
‘Cause she’s suddenly gone
He’s suddenly single
‘Cause she’s suddenly gone

Poor, Poor Pitiful Me

Well, I lay my head on the railroad track
Waitin’ on the “double e”
But the train don’t run through here no more
Poor, poor pitiful me!

[Chorus]

Poor, poor pitiful me!
Poor, poor pitiful me!
Oh, these boys won’t let me be
Lord have mercy on me!
Woe, woe is me!

Well, I met a man out in Hollywood
And I ain’t namin’ names
But he really worked me over good
Just like Jesse James

Yes, he really worked me over good
He was a credit to his gender
He put me through some changes
Lord, sorta like a waring blender

[Repeat Chorus]

Well, I met a boy in the Vieux-Carres
Down in Yokahoma
He picked me up and he threw me down
Sayin’, “please don’t hurt me, mama”

[Repeat Chorus]

Poor, poor pitiful me!
Poor, poor pitiful me…

Now That I Found You

How can I believe
That my heart would find someone like you
You see me, the real me
No in bewteens, I had nowhere to hide
You took away the walls around me
Made me feel safe to share my truth

I see the heavens open, a heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer, you touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain’t enough to love you true
Now that I found you
Now that I found you

I do believe we’re meant to be
Our chemistry will last forever
And through the years
We’ll see some tears
We’ll conquer fears
And together we will grow
Look through your eyes
They tell me
I no longer have to be alone

I see the heavens open, a heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer, you touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain’t enough to love you true
Now that I found you
Now that I found you

You see me, the real me
You belive you in me

I see the heavens open, a heart that once was broken
Is holding nothing back
Now that I found you
You hold me like a prayer, you touch me everywhere
A lifetime just ain’t enough to love you true
Now that I found you
Now that I found you

You're Easy On The Eyes

Shoulda known it was you knocking on my door
At half past a heartache at quarter to four
Were you starting to worry I was finally getting over you
I almost forgot you looked so fine
If you told me some lies, it would be like old times
Just getting to see you is almost worth the things you do

[Chorus]
You’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart
You look so good but the way things look ain’t the way they are
Better say goodbye
Before this goes too far
Cause now I realize you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart

I got to admit to you got a smile
That really reeled me in for awhile
But it ain’t funny, honey, what you put me through
So why don’t you send me your photograph
It’d hurt a lot less than taking you back
Then I could still have my favorite part of you

[Repeat Chorus Twice]
Cause you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart
You look so good but the way things look ain’t the way they are
Better say goodbye
Before this goes too far
Cause now I realize you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart

You’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart
You look so good but the way things look ain’t the way they are
Better say goodbye
Before this goes too far
Now I realize you’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart

Now I realize
You’re easy on the eyes
Hard on the heart

Unsung Hero

You sit in the shadows
You don’t complain or criticize
And while the world may see me as a fool
They’re not looking through your eyes
No questions asked, you’re there when I need you
With a love that inspires me to be everything you deserve

‘Cause you’re my unsung hero
And I know it’s not easy to walk in your shoes
Day after day you continue to amaze me
Now I sing this song of love for you

While others long to steal the spotlight
You work your magic quietly
Cause you’re not in it for the glory
The love you give comes naturally
I may not have much, but what I have I give to you
And this song that I sing is my gift
And I swear that I mean every word

‘Cause you’re my unsung hero
And I know it’s not easy to walk in your shoes
Day after day you continue to amaze me
Now I sing this song of love for you

‘Cause you’re my unsung hero
And I know it’s not easy to walk in your shoes
Day after day you continue to amaze me
Now I sing this song of love for you

Now I sing this song of love
For you

A Little Gasoline

Throwing pictures out the window
Scattered by the way the wind blows
Bye Bye Baby , that’s the last I’ll see of you
Shoebox full of old love letters
I’ll tear each one till I feel better
And I won’t look back, cause I don’t like the view

[Chorus:]
What my heart needs now is rest
So I’m packing up and I’m headed west
My mind’s made up, I’ll put it to the test
Pushing myself and this old maching
Burning fumes and what’s left of my dreams
Let ‘em go cause I don’t need no strings
Just give me a road and a Little Gasoline

We talked in circles ’til the words ran out
And it all came down to an angry shout
Before I knew it I was in third gear and gone
Well this had been coming for a long, long time
If I said I’m sorry, well I’d be lying
If you think I’ll never make it, well you’d be wrong

[Chorus: (Repeat twice)]
What my heart needs now is rest
So I’m packing up and I’m headed west
My mind’s made up, I’ll put it to the test
Pushing myself and this old machine
Burning fumes and what’s left of my dreams
Let ‘em go cause I don’t need no strings
Just give me a road and a Little Gasoline

Just give me a road and a Little Gasoline.

No Fear

I want a road stretching out before me
I want a radio in my ear
I want a full tank of absolution
No fear
I want a rainstorm to pull me over
Then a sky that begins to clear
Towards the truest of destinations
No fear

I used to hit every wall there was
I used to run away from love
All I ever wanted was right here
But I had to reach way down inside
I had to have faith I’d find
No fear

I want the world to just keep on turning
I want the dawn in my rear view mirror
I want to hear my own voice singing
No fear
And when I need two arms around me
And theres no one near
When I’m alone let the only sound be
No fear

I used to hit every wall there was
I used to run away from love
All I ever wanted was right here
But I had to reach way down inside
I had to have faith I’d find
No fear

I want peace, Love and Understanding
A stogie and an ice-cold beer
Don’t want to live afraid of dying
I used to hit every wall there was
I used to run away from love
All I ever wanted was right here
But I had to reach way down inside
I used to stay up all night long
Wondering what I was doing wrong
All I ever needed was right here
But I had to reach way down inside
I had to have faith I’d find
No fear

I Just Wanna Be Mad

Last night we went to bed not talking
Cause we already said to much
I face the wall you faced the window
Bound and determined not to touch

We’ve been married 7 years now
Some days if feels like 21
I’m still mad at you this morning
Coffee’s ready if you want some
I’ve been up since 5
Thinking about me and you
And I’ve got to tell you
The conclusion I’ve come to

[Chorus]
I’ll never leave, I’ll never stray
My love for you will never change
But I ain’t ready to make up or get around to that
I think I’m right I think your wrong
I’ll probably give in before long
Please don’t make me smile
I just want to be mad for awhile

For now you might as well forget it
Don’t run your fingers through my hair
Yeah that’s right I’m being stubborn
No I don’t want to go back upstairs
I’m going to leave for work
Without a goodbye kiss
But as I’m driving off
Just remember this

[Chorus twice]

I just want to be mad for awhile
I just want to be mad for awhile
I just want to be mad for awhile

I Wanna Do It All

I’m sitting in traffic
For the 5th year in a row
Wasting my time
Just to get
Where I don’t even wanna go
I started jotting things down
On a krispy kreme sack
Everything I’d do
If I could leave this place
And never look back

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fall
Watch the Yankees play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law
I wanna do it all

I want to drink tequila
Down in Tijuana
Say why not
When somebody says
Hey do you wanna
I wanna get my heart broke
Once or twice
Settle down with the love of my life
Rock little babies to sleep at night

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fall
Watch the Yankees play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law
I wanna do it all

I wanna spend a day
Every now and then
Just doin what I want to do
When I wanna do it (I want to do it all)
Anytime I wanna do it (I want to do it all)

I wanna do it all
Visit Paris in the fall
Watch the Yankees play ball
I wanna take it all in
Catch a few beads
Down at Mardi Gras
Start a tradition
Lay down the law

I wanna do it all
See Niagara falls
Fight city hall
Feel good in my skin
Beating the odds
With my back to the wall
Try to rob Peter
Without paying Paul
I wanna do it all
I wanna do it all
I wanna do it all

Girls Lie Too

So she can’t go out tonight again:
Her sister’s sick, she’s gotta baby-sit.
Yeah, that sounds like a pretty good excuse.
Now you didn’t hear any of this from me,
But things aren’t always what they seem.
Brace yourself, this may come as a shock to you.

Girls lie too,
An’ we don’t care how much money you make,
Or what you drive or what you weigh:
Size don’t matter anyway.
Girls lie too:
Don’t think you’re the only ones,
Who bend it, break it, stretch it some.
We learn from you,
Girls lie too.

We can’t wait to hear about your round of golf.
We love to see deer heads hanging on the wall,
An’ we like Hooter’s for their hotwings too.
Other guys never cross our minds.
We don’t wonder what it might be like.
How could it be any better than it is with you?

Girls lie too,
An’ we don’t care how much money you make,
Or what you drive or what you weigh:
Size don’t matter anyway.
Girls lie too:
Don’t think you’re the only ones,
Who bend it, break it, stretch it some.
We learn from you,
Girls lie too.

Yeah, girls lie too:
We always forgive and forget.
The cards and flowers you never sent,
Will never be brought up again.
Girls lie too.
Old grey sweatpants turn us on.
We like your friends and we love your mom.
And that’s the truth,
Girls lie too.

Yeah that’s the truth,
Girls lie too.

No, we don’t care how much hair you have.
Yeah, that looks good!
Comb it over like that.
Oh.

The World Needs A Drink

Turned on the TV
More crime in the streets
More trouble in the middle east
And fires out west

Politicians flingin dirt
Got decension in the church
Another law suit in the works
Man you talk about a mess

Too much tension between miss liberty and The eiffel tower
It’s about time we all made up at some big Happy hour

I think the world needs a drink
I think enoughs enough
She’s been spinnin around so long i’d say She’s pretty wound up
Calm down, Sit back, Relax
Tear up the contracts and save the ink
Yeah I think the world needs a drink

I bet we’d get somethin done
Over 2 for ones
Rubbin elbows with the big guns
Wouldn’t that be cool

Call all the rich and the poor
The peace keepers and the warlords
We’ll cut some deals over nothing more
Than a shot of 90 proof

There ain’t nothin wrong a few cold beers Can’t iron out
In fact you tell me just when and where and I’ll buy the first round

I think the world needs a drink
I think enoughs enough
She’s been spinnin around so long i’d say She’s pretty wound up
Let’s all calm down sit back relax
Tear up the contracts and save the ink
Yeah i think the world needs a drink

Hey let’s all calm down, sit back, relax
Tear up the contracts and save the ink
Yeah i think the world needs a drink
Dont you think the world needs a couple Drinks

I know I do
Yeah that’s Right
