And they wandered in

From the city of St. John

Without a dime

Wearing coats that shined

Both red and green

Colors from their sunny island

From their boats of iron

They looked upon the promised land

Where surely life was sweet

On the rising tide

To New York City

Did they ride into the street

See the glory

Of the royal scam

They are hounded down

To the bottom of a bad town

Amid the ruins

Where they learn to fear

An angry race of fallen kings

Their dark companions

While the memory of

Their southern sky was clouded by

A savage winter

Every patron saint

Hung on the wall, shared the room

With twenty sinners

See the glory

Of the royal scam

By the blackened wall

He does it all

He thinks he's died and gone to heaven

Now the tale is told

By the old man back home

He reads the letter

How they are paid in gold

Just to babble in the back room

All night and waste their time

And they wandered in

From the city of St. John without a dime

See the glory

Of the royal scam

The Royal Scam-Steely Dan

From "Dense Water Deeper Down" by Sinead O'Connor

He has my love

In the palm of his hands

His gentle touch

Made me scream aloud

His wicked kiss

Made me feel the bliss

He's the only love I missed

Oh he's dense water deeper down.

He makes me forget everything my mother warned

I think about him every night

I thought I'd sleep

Holding my pillow tight

Word up: fatal

"Baobabs" by Regina Spektor

You have tamed me

Now you must take me

How am I supposed to be

I don't have my thorns now

But I feel them sprouting

They'll grow right through if I don't watch them

They'll grow right through even if I watch them

And a sunset couldn't save me now

These baobabs, and baobabs, and baobabs some more

But you can't outweight fate

You have tamed me

Now you must take me

T-t-ta-t-t-ta-t-t-ta-tt-ta-t-t-ta-tt-ta-t-t-ta-t-t-ta

And I wouldn't raise my child inside the city anyway

They grow up too savvy

And they grow up too fast

And they know about buying *******

And they know about sex

And they know about investment banking

And also about brokerage burns

And they know about the numbers

And they know about the words

And they know about the bottom lines

And also about stones

And they know about careers

And about the real deals

And they all grow up and become people's people with people skills

But you have tamed me

Now you must take me

How am I supposed to be

I don't have my thorns now

You have tamed me

Now you must take me

How am I supposed to be

I don't have my tho-or-or-or-orns

Peter Percival Patterson had a pet pig named Porky

This Pet Pig named Porky loved pie

He loved pizza pie, pumpkin pie, pineapple pie, pizza pie, mints tarts

And Peter Percival Patterson's pet pig Porky loved

Pie for breakfast, pie for lunch, pie in the afternoon and pie before he

Went to bed.

Peter Percival Patterson's pet pig Porky ate so much pie that,

Do you know what he did?

He popped.

Is that the best word you can think of? Oh well, here goes:

"Simply Said" - Bruddah Ku'ulei (1995)

You told me maybe we could make it

I hold that hope in my heart now

I want you to know you're my everything

For you the sun, the moon, the star they shine

For you they shine

Chorus:

Simply said, I love you

With all my heart and soul

With these words I mean them true

Simply said, I love you

For your love girl, I would do anything

You know you only have to ask me

If there is something I can ever do

For you just name it and I'll be there

Chorus X2

:neener:

I had "Pringles" up there for two weeks and everybody was too chicken to try it. So I figured I'd better do something easy if there's any hope of keeping this game alive. And, you see, it worked.

As the seabird flies above

My songs are sung to those I've come to love

The petals strung into the leis

The flowering of days I've just begun

A second chance to grasp a dance

Beneath the last rays setting of the sun

"Moon Song" - Arlo Guthrie

I am a cephalopod fossilized in the mud,

Swimming along one day- then buried in the crust.

Once a sea creature now I’m a geologic feature,

Imagine little me, preserved for immortality!

Well we don't get these wood grainy faces from living too good

Its the rocks and the dust and the sun and the heat

Its too much work and too little to eat

"Daisies stand up on their tip-toes

Clouds stumble over themselves in the sky

All the pretty horses come running to her

Even the dust devils pray

That they'll catch her eye"
