Does Life Have You


Does life have you
Feeling blue?
Well, naked jumping jacks
Are the only thing to do

Fluttering Hearts On A Broken Trail


Fluttering hearts on a broken trail
Do you know your own soul
Too many nights
Too many sad songs
Your mind sent off balance
Thinking cursed thoughts
Can you cleanse yourself
Any way to be free

Pour Me Some Scotch

Pour me some scotch, I’ll tell you a story
This one full of thriving drunken louts
Seafaring strangers searching for loose women
Under these conditions, love is often on the outs
Ladies and gentlemen, please let me continue
Twas not I, for the saloon singer’s song
Melted her heart & it not my fault
You cannot blame me for his doing wrong
I too was blinded by the sparkle of the ring
I too was victim when that ship went down
Tilt your eyes back to who you know it is
In the dark corner of midnight rests the sad clown


Sad Downcast Beauty

Sad downcast beauty

Why are you so down?

What is it that ails thee?

Your tears heard around town

C’mon sugar britches!

I need a smile from you

Sing me a sweet song

No reason to stay this blue

Grab hold of my shoulder

Let me raise you to the sky

Love could be a sweaty mess

Never again reason to cry
