Luna Marie 03:26
____________________________________________ LUNA MARIE With moons in her fingers and moons in her toes, a faraway look in her starry eyes Luna Marie was the belle of the ball in a town with a lonesome past Her nights were spent in the old dance hall stepping to tunes from a bygone time her heart was heavy yet it skipped a beat when she saw the stranger came in He'd been traveling through on his way to a war when he lost his place in the scheme of things so he followed the sounds of the honky-tonk band playing la dee ah dee ay He found her there in that dimly lit crowd the light of his life with the dark brown hair the two started dancing round the wornout floor and the night soon passed away Oh Luna, Luna Luna, Luna We're spinning around in a cold, dark sky And loving makes that seem okay They never looked back as they dipped and whirled past the rundown memories and the faded looks Between their cares and forgotten dreams they kissed at every chance Was it the turn of her ankle or a twist of his fate, the love poem written on a used matchbook? Whatever it was, it was what they had and they never let it slip away Oh Luna, Luna Luna, Luna We're spinning around in a cold, dark sky And loving makes that seem okay ____________________________________________

Street Dog 03:01
________________________________________ STREET DOG It was Mardi Gras when I first saw him sitting outside my door Just a street dog with some loving ways I had to let him in when he wagged his tail Some time has passed since we first hmm hmm sleeping inside my door Now he's my sweet dog with those loving ways I always let him in when he wags that tail. ________________________________________

____________________________________________ HEAVEN ON THIS EARTH Supposin' there's no home on high, no great beyond up in the sky no hereafter after all Well then I want this world to be a paradise, a place of peace I want heaven on this earth I want a band of angels in my backyard singing to the neighborhood I want heavenly shores out my front door milk and honey at the corner store My just rewards might be just this a chance to live, a touch of bliss, revelation in a song I don't want war I don't want greed no more hunger or disease I want heaven on this earth I don't want war I don't want greed no more hunger or disease I want heaven on this earth Yes I want this world to be a paradise, a place of peace I want heaven on this earth I want a band of angels in my backyard singing to the neighborhood, hallelujah glory be this here's the promised land ____________________________________________

BAREFOOT KATE At a summer's end not so long ago Two lovers walked barefoot by the sea Clouds of war would soon take Joe away so he asked his Kate "Will you wait for me?" Tide and time wait for no one and may carry us apart, but I will wait for you, my love yes, I will wait for you She kissed her Joe and asked him not to go He smiled and held her happy that she'd wait The winds and williwaws blew for seven years Waves of rage crashed onto foreign lands Sand swept through the souls of humankind and Joe saw things that broke his heart and mind Tide and time wait for no one and have carried us apart, but I will wait for you, my love yes, I will wait for you Each day Kate walked the water's edge alone and traced his name with her bare feet on the strand They sent Joe home with a wounded soul His country served and his duty done When he saw his Kate he began to cry he shook as she kissed his grey and wearied head Tide and time wait for no one and may carry us apart, but I will wait for you, my love yes, I will wait for you ____________________________________________

____________________________________________ HEARTS RIDE a BIG WHEEL What opens sometimes closes What promised to be forgets What changes pulls apart What follows finds its way alone What's fragile has a strong appeal What hurts wants to make amends What hope remains accepts What chances there are again Sorrow tells a different tale everywhere it goes Joy carries on though mistaken for a fool Time tells the difference depending on its mood Oh I like this round and round and round with you Oh I like this round and round and round with you What moves us knows what for What happens is a nice idea What's destined never loses sleep What matters dreams of you and me Sorrow tells a different tale everywhere it goes Joy carries on though mistaken for a fool Time tells the difference depending on its mood Oh I like this round and round and round with you Oh I like this round and round and round with you Oh I like this round and round and round with you ____________________________________________

SHORT & SWEET When considering the measure of manly might don't believe what you've heard of that age-old hype it's not the length of the lover that makes him right there's more to a man than inches and height He could be short and sweet, diminutive in style with compact delights so crazy and wild Widen your horizons, lower your sites Forget the verticality and take my advice if you're lookin' for lovin' in the heavens above you could be missin' the kissin' here near the ground He could be short and sweet, diminutive in style with compact delights so crazy and wild Instead of long and lanky, I'll take mine small and swanky The apple of my eye ain't even five feet five He's short and sweet, diminutive in style with compact delights that drive me, so crazy and wild _________________________________________

_________________________________________ WHERE'S DIANA? The last we saw of Diana was her paisley bandana She up and ran away to join the circus they say but she never told a soul where she planned to go Perhaps she went to Jamaica Katmandu or Topeka She could be anywhere without a worry or care And she never told a soul where she planned to go _________________________________________

Friday Night 03:38
____________________________________________ FRIDAY NIGHT Friday night is when he asked her Let's dance hand in hand Without a moment's hesitation she stepped into his life Moving closer with each turn They could sense their togetherness Oh she wonders which way to go Can she follow his touch He holds her near with such certainty What else can she say? But I want to surrender Show me once more how you move It's so nice Oh she wonders which way to go Can she follow his touch He holds her near with such certainty What else can she say? But I want to surrender Oh let me try Show me once more how you move It's so nice _________________________________________
