Mother Can You Carry Me
 

                                   When I was younger than tomorrow
                                   When I was wise as yesterday
                                   When I could share my brother’s sorrow
                                   Even then you went away

                                  When my heart was yours to play with
                                  Though your was never mine
                                  And when I was there to lay with
                                  Even then you had no time

                                  Mother can you carry me
                                  Clear across the sky
                                  Mother can you carry me
                                  Show me how to fly high

                                  Now I am wise as tomorrow
                                  And I am young as yesterday
                                  No I have nothing buy my sorrow
                                  Yesterday tomorrow and today

                                  Mother can you carry me
                                  Clear across the sky
                                  Mother can you carry me
                                  Show me how to fly high
 
 
 

Speak To The Sky
 

                                  Speak to the sky when ever things go wrong
                                  and you know you're not talkin' to the air,  to the air
                                  and the world will look better from up there

                                  Speak to the sky 'cause things can get ya down
                                  and you know when you're talkin' to the Lord,  to the Lord
                                  the world will look better than before

                                  And if I stumble and it seems that I am blind
                                  or if the road I'm on seems awful hard to find
                                  and though my conversation doesn't always rhyme
                                  I always try to find some time to .......

                                  Speak to the sky and tell you how I feel
                                  and to know sometimes what I say ain't right
                                  It's all right
                                  cause I speak to the sky every night

                                  And if I stumble and it seems that I am blind
                                  or if the road I'm on seems awful hard to find

                                  I always try to find some time to .......

                                  Speak to the sky and tell you how I feel

 What Would The Children Think
 

                                  She wakes up in the morning with the new sunrise
                                  Looks at her husband sleeping still
                                  Inside she cries

                                  She makes the children breakfast
                                  Gets them on their way
                                  Watching them through the window
                                  She prepares to face another day

                                  Then her husband tells her
                                  That he won’t be home ‘til late
                                  There’s so much work he’ll have to stay behind

                                  But she knows it isn’t work that’s on his mind
                                  But still he'll never leave her

                                  Cause what would the children think
                                  Where would the children go
                                  What would the children do
                                  If they knew the way it was
                                  But they’ll never learn because
                                  What would the children think
                                  Where would the children think

                                  At the gate she kissed him
                                  And watched him walk
                                  Hoping this small charade
                                  Will stop the neighbors talk

                                  She turns to hide a tear
                                  Inside her gilded cage
                                  She cries for the love she could not hold
                                  And lost to someone half her age

                                  Then her pride and breakin' heart
                                  Tell her to run away
                                  But she values what she’s got a little more
                                  Two kids, one 9 and nearly 4
                                  And she would never leave them cause…

                                  What would the children think
                                  Where would the children go
                                  What would the children do
                                  If they knew the way it was
                                  But they’ll never learn because
                                  What would the children think
                                  Where would the children think

                                  What would the children think
                                  Where would the children go
                                  What would the children do….

1000 Years
 

                                  If only we talked it out a little more
                                  You might never have gone away
                                  If only I tried
                                  Instead of making for the door
                                  You’d be loving me still today
                                  And if I’d only been a little wiser

                                  You knew I knew the lies you told
                                  But you thought I didn’t care
                                  And if I’d only shown my love
                                  In so many different ways
                                  If only you’d stayed

                                  And in 1000 years
                                  I’ll still be thinking of you
                                  Though in 1000 years
                                  My love will have gone
                                  But in a 1000 years
                                  We’ll probably be together
                                  But right now you’re gone

                                  If only I had you back again right now
                                  Wouldn’t ask for a thing, I know
                                  Except to say I’m sorry, and how
                                  And the wisdom to let it show
                                  And if I’d only looked a little deeper
                                  Each time I saw you weeping
                                  And how I wished I held you close

                                  Cause If I only shown my love
                                  In so many different ways
                                  Baby you’d want to stay

                                  And in 1000 years
                                  I’ll still be thinking of you
                                  Though in 1000 years
                                  My love will have gone
                                  But in a 1000 years
                                  We’ll probably be together
                                  But right now you’re gone

                                  And in 1000 years

                                  (I’ll still be thinking of you)
                                  1000 years
                                  (My love will be long gone)
                                  1000 years
                                  (We’ll probably be together forever)
                                  1000 years
                                  (I’ll still be thinking of you)
                                  1000 years
                                  (whaaa whooo)

The Unhappy Ending (Lead Me On)
 

                                  Tears subsiding
                                  Michael lifts
                                  A gun up to his head
                                  Sorry for the part he played
                                  In making Maggie dead

                                  As he pulls the trigger,
                                  And he feels the hammer fall
                                  His mind goes back a year ago
                                  And he remembers us all
                                  And how we loved him

                                  Oh (lead me on)
                                  Lord lead me on
                                  Oh (lead me on)
                                  Lord lead me on

                                  She said she’d been with other men
                                  But that was long ago
                                  Long before she fell in love with him
                                  He ought to know

                                  He could not believe her
                                  He told her to her face
                                  And took on with another girl
                                  Put Maggie in disgrace

                                  Oh (lead me on)
                                  Lord lead me on
                                  Oh (lead me on)
                                  Lord lead me on

                                  But when they found they found her dying
                                  He realized what he done
                                  She died because he blamed her
                                  For things she’d never done

                                  A loud explosion rocks the air
                                  And things go quite insane...
                                  As the gun hurls out the shell

                                  It crashes through his brain

                                  Oh (lead me on)
                                  Lord lead me on
                                  Oh (lead me on)
                                  Lord lead me on
 

 Hooky Jo

                                  That the north has won.

                                  So I packed my bags
                                  And I gave back my gun

                                  We planned to make a start
                                  But the war came between us
                                  And we fell apart

                                  Now this old gray coat is getting mighty thin
                                  But I’ll keep on looking for her
                                  Till we meet again

 Why?
 

                                  I don’t know how
                                  To tell you who I am
                                  Try to justify
                                  You’d still deny I’m a man

                                  I never understood it
                                  So I don’t expect you to
                                  But I can’t change now
                                  Love, just for you

                                  Maybe it’s better
                                  That you know at last
                                  Oh I am sorry
                                  It all happened so fast

                                  We might have lasted longer
                                  If I told you when we met
                                  But it’s an old song
                                  For you to forget

                                  Why did you love me more
                                  Lord did I let her down
                                  Why did she never understand me
                                  Whey did she love me
                                  Lord did I let her down
                                  Why is it so hard to be yourself

                                  I never understood it
                                  So I don’t expect you to
                                  But I can’t change now
                                  Love, just for you

                                  Maybe it’s better
                                  That you know at last
                                  Oh I am sorry
                                  It all happened so fast

                                  We might have lasted longer
                                  If I told you when we met
                                  But it’s an old song
                                  For you to forget

                                  Why did you love me more
                                  Lord did I let her down
                                  Why did she never understand me
                                  Whey did she love me
                                  Lord did I let her down
                                  Why is it so hard to be yourself
 

 The Ballad Of Annie Goodbody
 

                                  Well I took Annie out
                                  To see a show
                                  But the music that played
                                  Was too slow

                                  And I knew
                                  If I was going to make any ground
                                  I’d have to get some place
                                  Where the music was loud

                                  I said “okay babe what do you wanna do”
                                  We can cut on out
                                  If you want to
                                  She looked at me and said
                                  “Just what this place needs
                                  is some good ol’ rock and roll
                                  right from the seeds”

                                  Stand in front
                                  Cause she climbed on the stage
                                  And when she opened her mouth
                                  She could really rave
                                  She sang like a bird
                                  And moved like a snake
                                  Suddenly the hall began to shake

                                  Well her body started rocking
                                  On the dance floor
                                  Moving and a shaking
                                  And wanting more
                                  She nearly brought the roof down
                                  With all the rock and roll

                                  Her body started shaking
                                  With the songs that she sang
                                  Even big Lucy and her female gang
                                  Her music was loud
                                  Things were getting hot
                                  Whatever it is
                                  Annie’s sure got

                                  Oooh every body started shakin
                                  With the songs that she sang
                                  Even big Lucy and her female gang
                                  The music was loud
                                  Things were getting hot
                                  Whatever it was
                                  Annie’s sure got

                                  Yeah Yeah Annie Goodbody
                                  I love you
                                  Yes I do
                                  You know I love you
