Picture Show Lyrics
A young man from a small town
With a very large imagination
Lay alone in his room with his radio on
Looking for another station
When the static from the mouthpiece
Gave way to the sound below
James Dean went out to Hollywood
And put his picture in a Picture Show.
James Dean went out to Hollywood
And put his picture in a Picture Show.

Chorus:
And It's Oh Daddy get off of your knees
Mamma why'd you have to go
Your darling Jim is out a limb
I put my picture in a Picture Show
Whoa Ho! Put my picture in a Picture Show

Hamburgers Cheeseburgers
Wilbur and Orville Wright
John Garfield in the afternoon
Montgomery Clift at night
When the static hit the mouthpiece
Gave way to the sound below
James Dean went out to Hollywood
And put his picture in a Picture Show.

Repeat Chorus:

A Mocca man in a wigwam sitting on a Reservation.
With a big black hole in the belly of his soul
Waiting on an explanation
While the white man sits on his fat can
And takes pictures of the Navajo
Every time he clicks his Kodak pics
He steals a little bit of soul.
Every time he clicks his Kodak pics
He steals a little bit of soul.

Repeat Chorus:

Yie Hi! Put my picture in a Picture Show
Here we go!
A young man from a small town
With a very large imagination...

All The Best Lyrics
I wish you love And happiness
I guess I wish you All the best
I wish you don't Do like I do
And ever fall in love with Someone like you
Cause if you fell Just like I did
You'd probably walk around the block like a little kid.
But kids don't know They can only guess
How hard it is To wish you happiness

I guess that love Is like a Christmas card
You decorate a tree You throw it in the yard
It decays and dies And the snowmen melt
Well I once knew love I knew how love felt
Yeah I knew love Love knew me
And when I walked Love walked with me
And I got no hate And I got no pride
Well I got so much love That I cannot hide

Say you drive a Chevy Say you drive a Ford
You say you drive around the town till you just get bored
Then you change your mind For something else to do
And your heart gets bored with your mind and it changes you
Well it's a doggone shame And it's an awful mess
I wish you love I wish you happiness
I wish you love I wish you happiness
I guess I wish you All the best

Everybody Wants To Feel Like You Lyrics
Lately mother earth has been feeling unsatisfied,
A taste plain from the rain the sweet lady started to cry,
Fires crackle and blaze in the rays of a burning heart,
and I don't think it's smart to,
Lay and wait for the day that she dies in our arms.

We gotta do something,
We gotta do something,
Before mother earth gets anymore hurt,
We gotta do something!

You might have read there's a lotta bad stuff in the world today,
It's been said it's getting rough to find a place where the children play,
So, Mr Prime Minister and Mr President you better see that it's
not only me, no, our mob is rising in size,
and they've been dying to scream out to you!

You gotta do something,
We gotta do something,
Sometimes I sit in my room and I don't know what to do,
but we've gotta do something!

It's time to do something,
Someone should do something,
We gotta do something,
and that someone is you,
and you and you and you!

I pray it ain't all lost and gone,
I pray we might learn right from wrong,
and I pray this broken day, will not last too long,
I pray that you believe my song ... Darlin'!

You know I'm sorry if this is hard for you to take,
But a lot of it just needs saying,
and I don't see anyone else out there,
giving out this message,
and if I don't do this, Who's gonna do it?
And maybe, if someone hears these words,
maybe the whole world gets round and listens,
to what I'm sayin', and maybe we have a chance.
Because I don't wanna see another child crying,
I don't wanna see another dog, dyin' in the streets,
I can't see another homeless man, because it doesn't seem right to me,
He's got a home, and he's not got a home,
What's the point in that?
Why can't we all just get together, in one big home,
and if I was in Government,
Then I'd Government things much more differentlier,
because it ain't the best way to government things,
So there's poor people everywhere,
You know I would just be sittin' alone,
Thinkin' "How can I do something?",
'Cos I ain't gonna be in chains no-more,
You lot might have been conned, but I ain't been conned,
'Cos I'm a free man, I'm free, and I'm gonna let my soul soar,
and the way I do that is through my music,
so why don't you, do something?

I Want To Be With You Always Lyrics
I lose my blues
Only when I'm with you
No one else can do
You're in my heart to stay
But when I'm gone and I'm all alone
I'll be singing this song
I want to be with you always

I'd be happy dear
If you could only be here
And always be near you
Forever and a day
Then we'd travel far to some big shining star
Just you and my guitar
And stay there sweetheart for always

I hope you feel the same
You really want my name
You'll be the one who's to blame
If it works out wrong that day
Cause my love is true, my love's only for you
I'll never be blue
If I can be with you always

I'd be happy dear
If you could only hear
And always be near you
Forever and a day
Then we'd travel far to some big shining star
Just you and my guitar
And stay there sweetheart for always

Take A Look At My Heart Lyrics
You always check yourself
In every mirror you see, day and night
And it is such a shame
Your vanity is to blame
Oh why don't you knock it off

It is the pointlessness
That's got me loving less
I cannot handle that you're such a wannabe
You're caught up in yourself
And me,you don't even see

I won't be crying when I'm lonely
'Cause I'll be making sure I'll have a good time
Hey nothing wrong when I'm alone now
'Cause I'm alone and I'm proud
I won't be crying when I'm lonely

I'm sure you don't believe
That anybody can tell you're a fool
I'll bet that you believe
They only think that you're cool
And a handsome devil too

But baby trust me now
You better turn around
'Cause otherwise you're gonna fall and hit the ground
'Cause all this beauty boy
Won't last eternally

I won't be crying when I'm lonely
'Cause I'll be making sure I'll have a good time
Hey nothing wrong when I'm alone now
'Cause I'm alone and I'm proud
I won't be crying when I'm lonely

I won't be crying when I'm lonely
'Cause I'll be making sure I'll have a good time
Hey nothing wrong when I'm alone now
'Cause I'm alone and I'm proud

I won't be crying when I'm lonely
'Cause I'll be making sure I'll have a good time
Ain't nothing wrong when I'm alone now
'Cause I'm alone and I'm proud
I won't be crying when I'm lonely

Great Rain Lyrics
Great rain great rain
I thought I heard you call my name
Great rain great rain
I thought I heard you call my name
I was standing in the station
Waving down an unmarked train

There's a fire at the junction
Why do you do the things you do
There's a fire at the junction
Why do you do the things you do
I was praying for mercy
And all he ever sent me was you

Jimmy bought the liquor
I bought the cups and ice
Jimmy bought the liquor
I bought the cups and ice
I tell you funny stories
Why can't you treat me nice

Great rain great rain
I thought I heard you call my name
Great rain great rain
I thought I heard you calling my name
I was standing by the river
Talking to a young Mark Twain.

Way Back Then Lyrics
Night is falling
We're doing the things we do
You are acting just like me
I'm acting just like you
Do you remember
When you were my friend?
That's the way I'd like things
Just like way back then

Baby's sleeping
Brother is on the run
I am out undoing
All the good I've done
If you loved me
Tell you what I would do
Wrap the world in silver foil
Bring it home to you.

Lately I feel
That I can't pretend
I may never ever see
The likes of you again
I take a walk, I come back home
Then I sit a spell
Watch the ponies dance around
The empty wishing well.

Night has fallen
I've said the things I did
The only baby sleeping
Is when I was a kid
Do you remember
When you were my friend?
That's the way I'd like things
Just like way back then.

Unlonely Lyrics
All you do is talk, you never act
Hypocrite, and that's a fact
Positive scene is a must
Without friendship, there is no trust
Visions of unity seem so nice
But when I see a fight I think twice
When I go to the shows and see stupidity
All I can say is "Where's the unity?"
Alcohol separates us
Use your head, keep in touch
Positive scene in our land
Lending you brother that helping hand
Visions of unity seem so nice
But when I see a fight I think twice
When I go to shows and see the stupidity

You Got Gold Lyrics
Is there ever enough space between us
To keep us both honest and true?
Why is it so hard just to sit in the yard
And stare at the sky so blue?
I've got a new way of walking and a new way of talking
Honey when I'm around you,
But it gives me the blues when I've got some good news
And you're not there to bring it to.

Life is a blessing, it's a delicatessen
Of all the little favors you do.
All wrapped up together no matter the weather,
Baby you always come through.
It's a measure of treasure that gives me the pleasure
Of loving you the way I do
And you know I would gladly say I need your love badly
And bring these little things to you.

Cause you got gold
Gold inside of you
You got gold
Gold inside of you
Well I got some
Gold inside me too

Well I'm thinking I'm knowing that I gotta be going
You know I hate to say so long.
It gives me an ocean of mixed up emotion
I'll have to work it out in a song.
Well I'm leaving a lot for the little I got
But you know a lot a little will do
And if you give me your love
I'll let it shine up above
And light my way back home to you.

Cause you got gold
Gold inside of you
Cause you got gold
Gold inside of you
Well I got some
Gold inside me too

You got wheels
Turning inside of you
You got wheels
Turning inside of you
Well I got wheels
Turning inside me too

Everything Is Cool Lyrics
Everything is cool
Everything's okay
Why just before last Christmas
My baby went away

Across the sea to an island
While the bridges brightly burn
So far away from my land
The valley of the unconcerned

I was walking down the road, man
Just looking at my shoes
When God sent me an angel
Just to chase away my blues

I saw a hundred thousand blackbirds
Just flying thru the sky
And they seemed to form a teardrop
From a black haired angel's eye

That tear fell all around me
And it washed my sins away
Now everything is cool
Everything's okay

Everything is cool
Everything's okay
Why just before last Christmas
My baby went away

And I find it real surprising
For myself to hear me say
That everything is cool
Everything's okay
Everything is cool
Everything's okay

Why just before last Christmas
My baby went away.

Jesus The Missing Years Lyrics
Jesus.... the missing years

It was raining. It was cold
West Bethlehem was no place for a twelve year old
So he packed his bags and he headed out
To find out what the world's about
He went to France. He went to Spain
He found love. He found pain.
He found stores so he started to shop
But he had no money so he got in trouble with a cop
Kids in trouble with the cops
From Israel didn't have no home
So he cut his hair and moved to Rome
It was there he met his Irish bride
And they rented a flat on the lower east side of Rome...
Italy that is
Music publishers, book binders, Bible belters, Money Changers,
Spoon Benders and lots of pretty Italian chicks.

Chorus:
Charley bought some popcorn
Billy bought a car
Someone almost bought the farm
But they didn't go that far
Things shut down at midnight
At least around here they do
Cause we all reside down the block
Inside at ....23 Skidoo.

Wine was flowing so were beers
So Jesus found his missing years
So He went to a dance and said "This don't move me"
He hiked up his pants and he went to a movie
On his thirteenth birthday he saw "Rebel without a Cause"
He went straight on home and invented Santa Claus
Who gave him a gift and he responded in kind
He gave the gift of love and went out of his mind
You see him and the wife wasn't getting along
So he took out his guitar and he wrote a song
Called "The Dove of Love Fell Off the Perch"
But he couldn't get divorced in the Catholic Church
At least not back then anyhow
Jesus was a good guy he didn't need this shit
So he took a pill with a bag of peanuts and
A Coca-Cola and he swallowed it.
He discovered the Beatles
And he recorded with the Stones
Once He even opened up a three-way package
In Southern California for old George Jones

Repeat Chorus:

The years went by like sweet little days
With babies crying pork chops and beaujolais
When he woke up he was seventeen
The world was angry. The world was mean.
Why the man down the street and the kid on the stoop
All agreed that life stank. All the world smelled like poop
Baby poop that is ..the worst kind
So he grew his hair long and thew away his comb
And headed back to Jerusalem to find Mom, Dad and home
But when he got there the cupboard was bare
Except for an old black man with a fishing rod
He said "Whatcha gonna be when you grow up?"
Jesus said "God"
Oh my God, what have I gotten myself into?
I'm a human corkscrew and all my wine is blood
They're gonna kill me Mama. They don't like me Bud.
So Jesus went to Heaven and he went there awful quick
All them people killed him and he wasn't even sick
So come and gather around me my contemporary peers
And I'll tell you all the story of
Jesus...The Missing Years

Repeat Chorus:

We all reside down the block
Inside at ....23 Skidoo.
