in the beginning...

In the garden of Eden sat Adam, massaging the bust of his madam, he chuckled with mirth, for he knew that on earth, there were only two boobs and he had 'em.

The Quest-tion

Well some say I'm good And some say I'm bad Some say that I'm smart Some think that I'm mad Some say that I'm right Some say that I'm wrong But all that I ask Is that we get along Some say that it's false Some say that it's true Some can't figure out just What they should do Some want me to stay Some want me to leave I'll let you decide What you want to believe

It's getting hot around here And it's not just the time the of year The winds begin to blow Which way are you gonna go?

Some say I'm a friend Some say I'm a foe Some say that I'm fast And some that I'm slow Some think that I'm nice Some say that I'm mean And sometimes they miss me The days in between Some say that I'm gone Some say I'll be back And some want to pray And some to attack Some look to me But I look to you Whatever you ask Is what I will do

It's getting hot around here And it's not just the time of the year The winds begin to blow Which way are you gonna go?

Well some like to rock And some like to roll And some want to keep it All under control Some like to sing And some like to dance Some play it safe And some take the chance Some live for love And some love to hate And sometimes it's early And sometimes it's late Sometimes we're rich And sometimes we're poor And sometimes we just Put our foot in the door

It's getting hot around here And it's not just the time of the year The winds begin to blow Which way are we gonna go?

Country Getaway

I'm sitting on the couch watching the evening news Seeing all the mayhem just gives me the blues I'm waiting for a story that'll make me smile I know it's gonna come but it might take awhile How I wish the earth was just a big dance floor And everybody knew there's nothing holy about war I say a little prayer that it'll be that way Then turn off the TV and make my getaway

I got to find some dancing room Underneath the summer moon So come and dance with me and we'll all let it be And hope the world starts dancing too

Time to hit the road and leave the fog behind There's a party up the river after dinnertime The boys are gonna be there doin' what they do And you can bet the girls will be there doing it too I'm looking for ten thousand of my closest friends I know they're in the field just up around the bend I feel a little tingle going in my toes And when I hear the music it's just gonna grow

Dancing to those country tunes There's a smile growing wider on the moon So come and dance with me in the land of the free And hope the world starts dancing too

Little girl don't cry about the things you're told We're gonna grow up but we don't got to grow old You can spend a lifetime looking for a truth But music and laughter are the fountain of youth

We're dancing to those country tunes Underneath the summer moon So come and dance with me at the hootenanny And we'll hope the world starts dancing too

Dream Team

I'm looking for a rhyme I'm looking for a reason I'm checking out the times and the Pulse of the season You could ask me why? But I don't need a reason I'll do it all for Love

Ain't worried 'bout the money Don't care about the fame Baby I just want to be a Part of the game We got the right coach and the team and the name We could go all the way

You need a smart offense You need a tough D You need the right plays to make some history You're gonna need some help from the special teams Just play for Victory

I know that we'll see snow I know that we'll see rain And we'll enjoy the good times and we'll battle through the pain Don't worry 'bout the time Just keep moving the chains And don't forget to pray

Dream Big

one fine day warm and bright I tried to hitch a ride but no one's passing by and suddenly I saw the light took to the river and I floated out of sight into the forest where rhythms rhyme it's peaceful here but there's a jungle in my mind I floated up to the spring of wine and raised a toast to all the friends of summertime

Here's to laughter and songs in the trees Here's to love on a warm summer breeze Here's to those who were born to be free us and them , you and me

one fine day so make it right this ol' world could use some afternoon delight it's time to climb the great divide so come on everybody to the mountainside and let us dream away the night hand in hand we need to Dream with all our might

Here's to laughter and songs in the trees Here's to love on a warm summer breeze Here's to those who were born to be free us and them , you and me

Shine & Rise

rise oh rise, we're spirits in disguise rise oh rise, so let your beauty shine rise oh rise, love is a gold mine So dry your eyes on the wind

rise oh rise, above the hate and lies rise oh rise, for peace the greatest prize rise oh rise, like thunder in the sky We're dancing in the rain

rise oh rise, you might find a surprise rise oh rise, one you can't deny rise oh rise, we build a nest then fly and rainbows never end
