Track Name: Hello
Hello my friend
It's good to see you again
Though I've been hard
You have held on
So far, so far, so far, so far, so far, so far, so far

Hello my eyes
I must apologize
For all my fears
Though I was blind, you saw
So clear, so clear, so clear, so clear, so clear, so clear, so clear

I'm getting to know you
I'm getting to know you
So well, so well, so well, so well, so well, so well, so well

Hello my feet
You have carried me
Where I have gone
Through right and wrong, you are
So strong, you're so strong, you're so strong, you're so strong, you're so strong, you're so strong, you're so strong

Hello my mind
I have done you wrong so many times
Still you're no fool
You make my world
So cool, you're so cool, you're so cool, you're so cool, you're so cool, you're so cool, you're so cool

I'm getting to know you
I'm getting to know you
So well, so well, so well, so well, so well, so well, so well

Hello my friend
It's good to see you again
Track Name: Hard Luck
Well my car broke down again
I lost my last best friend
I'm still wearing the same clothes that I wore last night
And these shoes I have to fill just don't fit right

Well I had a bit too much to drink
I thought a drink would help me think
To get some new perspective on this tired old life
Sublimate all my strife

Ahh....
Ahh...

Well I have no money in the bank
My ship came in and then it sank
I got no living kin for three thousand miles
I got no wife, I got no child

Boy I'm free....
Yeah I'm free...
No one cares what I do
No one hears what I say
No one tells me "don't go, please stay"

Well it seems I've misplaced my ID
So now I can't prove that I'm me
There's nothing to tie me to this cold, lonely town
When you walked out, here's what I found:

Boy I'm free....
Yeah I'm free...
No one cares what I do
No one hears what I say
No one tells me "don't go, please stay"
Track Name: Work Song
The other day, when I awoke, I went to work, I did my job then I went home
I fed the dog, I watched TV, I fell asleep
Ain't life sweet?

When I awoke, I went to work, I did my job then I went home
I fed the dog, I watched TV, I fell asleep
Then repeat...

When I awoke, I went to work, I did my job then I went home
I fed the dog, I watched TV, I fell asleep
Ain't life sweet?

When I awoke, I went to work, I did my job then I went home
I fed the dog, I watched TV, I fell asleep
Then repeat...

When I awoke, I went to work, I did my job then I went home
I fed the dog, I watched TV, I fell asleep
This is me...

When I awake, I go to work, I do my job then I go home
I feed the dog, I watch TV, I fall asleep
But then I dreamed...

That I awoke, I went to work, I quit my job then I went home
I fed the dog, I set him free, and then I flew across the sea...

I went to Rome,
I took a walk,
I met a man he looked like me
But couldn't talk,
He had no tongue,
Je wore a sign,
Said "Stop And Think"
Looked in his eyes,
He looked in mine,
He started crying and began to scream
And in his throat,
There was a note.....
It said, "Ain't Life Sweet?"

La la la, la la la la la la la, la la la....

The other day, when I awoke, I went to work, I did my job then I went home
I fed the dog, I watched TV...

Ain't life sweet?
Track Name: Home
Home, home
I'm never leaving
Home, home, home

And should one ask of me just where I am from...
I'll say that I am from right here.
And should one ask of me just where I long to roam...
I won't roam nowhere that ain't near.

Cuz I stay home...

I got a brown eyed boy, a house, car, and a brown eyed dog...
I got a million things that haunt me.
Someone once said you don't need nothing that you can't find in your own backyard...
And I ain't never been good with memories.

So I stay home...

And if it looks like a house and it smells like a house and it feels like a house, then maybe it's your house and you can come right in and you can pull up a chair, you don't gotta go home because you're already there!

I said home, home, I'm never leaving.
Home, home, home
Track Name: So Sweet
Now I don't want no honey, baby, cuz they stole it from the bees
And I don't need no sugar, dady, long as you've got love for me

If there's one thing that I love about him
It's that there's so much about him to love
And when I say that I can't live without him
It's just that living without him wouldn't be living, cuz
There's a way in which he brings me my sunshine
My blue skies and all my rainbows, too
And in return I like to give him the weather
The stars above and all my morning dew

Oooooh, baby... you're so sweet to me
Oooooh, baby... you're so sweet to me

Well I know he can't make me happy
But happiness is here every time that he's near
And I know he can't make me sad
But sadness sits on my face when he disappears and
It seems there's something special about him
(though everybody's special in their own special way) but
There's something bought his kind of special
His kind of special really makes my day

Oooooh, baby... you're so sweet to me
Oooooh, baby... you're so sweet to me

Now I don't want no honey, baby, cuz they stole it from the bees
And I don't need no sugar, daddy, long as you've got love for me
I don't want no furs and feather, cuz that's someone else's clothes
And I don't need no sexy leather cuz I got some skin of my own

Oooooh, baby... you're so sweet to me
Oooooh, baby... you're so sweet to me
Oooooh, baby... you're so sweet to me
Oooooh, baby... you're so sweet to me

Now I don't want no honey, baby, cuz they stole it from the bees
And I don't need no sugar, dady, long as you've got love for me
Long as you've got love for me...
Long as you've got love for me...
Long as you've got love for me...
Long as you've got love for me....
Track Name: Bad Town
See that man with the golden tooth
He's got rhinestones in his boots
Oh lord, he's a bad one

See that lady sittin' over there
With the painted face and the perfumed hair
Oh lord, she's a bad one

And this is Bad Town
Everybody in this town is bad...
Don't fool around, son
Don't fool around cuz foolin's bad...

Everybody in this town is bad
Every babe born in this town born bad

That man there's my mayor
That man there's my priest
That man there gave birth to me
And that man's Stagger Lee

It's a bad bad bad bad town
It's a bad bad bad bad town

Cuz this is Bad Town
Everybody in this town is bad...
Don't fool around, son
Don't fool around cuz foolin's bad...

Everybody in this town is bad
Every babe born in this town born bad
Every mother's daughter and every dad
Everybody in this town is bad

All the boys drink vinegar
And all the men eat rocks
All the women are tough as nails
And all the chickens are cocks

It's a bad bad bad bad town
It's a bad bad bad bad town

Cuz this is Bad Town
Everybody in this town is bad...
Don't fool around, son
Don't fool around cuz foolin's bad...

Everybody in this town is bad
Every babe born in this town born bad
Track Name: I'm Sad
Well it's good to see you come and sit right down
Thanks for asking me how I've been, my friend
And I would love to tell you that I've never been better
But that just ain't the way it is.... because...

I am sad
I'm so very sad
My heart is breaking in two, I swear that it's true
Because it feels like it's split and I almost get sick

I'm so sad
I'm so very sad
And I've been writing this song, to tell you what's wrong
So that we can get right but I won't sleep tonight, because

I'm sad
And I will always be sad
Till not one person one flea, one bird or one bee
Is hurting at all and all are set free

I'm be sad
And I will always be sad
Till all who are living are friends, the means are the ends
And everyone has, and everyone lends

I'll be sad
So if you're feeling sad
Then you can look in my eyes, and we'll recognize
That our pain is the same though it's called different names

It's just sad
In Spanish it's "triste"
In German it's "traurig"
But really it's just sad....

Oh don't you know that I'm sad...

Oh don't you know I'm still sad
But that don't mean I feel bad
Because I can see we are changing our tale, with the speed of a snail
And we're sure to get there if we just say our prayers
To the air
To the sky and the sea
To the people, the trees in the spring and every last thing
Our neighbors, our friends, then everyone wins in the end

Then we can truly begin
To start building with nothing but love and only good stuff
Living our lives like we're free as a kite in the air
With no strings, just bright tails
In a world where everyone shares, and everyone cares
Because we can all see the "you" in the "me"

And we're sad
We're so sad
We're all sad
We're just sad...
