Track Name: For the Love of Pete
___________________________________________

FOR THE LOVE OF PETE

The news spread fast on Sideways Pier
that Captain Pete had disappeared
They said his bark had run aground
and his crew could not be found

He’d gone a sailing in pursuit
of guns and rum and Spanish loot
but anything can happen on the deep, deep blue sea

Now Sally Doogan loved that man
despite his tendency to cheat, love of drink, rotten temper, stinky feet, missing teeth
And though she’d never been to sea
she swore to rescue Pete.

She bought a sloop and named it Belle
and bid her simple life farewell
as anything can happen on the deep, deep blue sea

Their first day out a storm befell upon that poor ship Belle
The second day they lost their way in fog and heavy swells
Undeterred they spent the third mending line and sail
On the fourth they made some progress till they bumped into that whale

The giant creature slapped his flukes and took a look around
And as he dove beneath their hull he sang a lovely sound
Every hand scanned the sea concerned of his return
That’s when they saw the pirate ships coming up astern

Oh for the love, oh for the love
Oh for the love, oh for the love

Those scoundrels sought to seize Sal’s sloop
but in their midst there came a whoosh
the whale exhaled, the rogues were spooked,
their leader begged a truce

So Sally commandeered their fleet
replete with gold to Port Royal
There’s danger but there’s booty on the deep, deep blue sea

On shore the captain Sally spied
two rum-soaked wenches by his side
And in a flash she saw the truth
She’d rather be a mariner than married to that brute!

So drink up Hearties, rest a spell
for now we’re rich with tales to tell
Tomorrow we’ll be back upon the deep, deep blue sea

ARE YE SLEEPIN', MAGGIE?

Mirk and rainy is the nicht,
there's no' a staum in a' the carry
Lichtnin's gleam athwart the lift,
and cauld winds drive wi' winters fury.

Oh, are ye sleeping Maggie
Oh, are ye sleeping Maggie
let me in, for loud the linn is howling
ower the warlock Craigie.

Fearfu' soughs the boortree bank,
the rifted wood roars wild and dreary
Loud the iron yett does clank,
the cry of hoolits mak's me eerie.

Chorus

Abune ma breath, I daurnae speak,
for fear I rouse your waukrife Daddy
Cauld's the blast upon my cheek,
O rise, O rise my bonnie lady.

Chorus

She's ope'd the door, she's let him in,
she's cuist aside his dreepin plaidie
Blaw yer warst ye rain and wind,
for Maggie noo I'm an aside ye.

Chorus

A Noo since your waukin' Maggie,
noo since yer waukin' Maggie
What care I for hoolits cry,
for boortree bank or warlock Craigie

Chorus

Track Name: Heaven on This Earth
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
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,
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 want a band of angels in my backyard
singing to the neighborhood,
Heavenly shores out my front door
milk and honey at the corner store

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
Track Name: The Cards on the Table
_________________________________________

THE CARDS ON THE TABLE

The cards are on the table
For everyone to see
that the Queen loves her Jack
And the Jack his Queen

The King doesn’t notice
perhaps he doesn’t care
He’s too busy winning money
and counting up his share

The Ace of Hearts is shocked
as is the Deuce of Spades
All the Diamonds and the Clubs
start to feel disarrayed

The King, slightly miffed
looks up from his hoard
saying “Shuffle and deal.
I’m a very busy lord!”


The cards are on the table
For everyone to see
that the Queen loves her Jack
And the Jack his Queen

Yes, the Queen has her Jack
and the Jack his Queen
While the King counts his money
assiduously

Track Name: 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.
Track Name: Shake Those Bones
____________________________________________

SHAKE THOSE BONES

Oh aye, this life is a mystery
What happens next is anyone's guess
It's a game of chance, luck and happenstance
Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose

Shake those bones, shake ‘em and roll ‘em
Shake those bones, shake ‘em and call
Shake those bones, shake ‘em and roll ‘em
Shake those bones, how will they fall?
