Harry Went To Heaven In A
Four Wheel Drive

Harry went to heaven in a four wheel drive
Doing 120 as he hit the ice
Harry's little World went 123
The jeep did a loop as it hit the trees

 

With a sickening crack his neck compounded
Head goes smash as the vehicle landed
Ribs poppin out all over the place
Tank go boom now Harry's in space

 

Harry's mama says he had no reason
To drive like a crazy in the freezin season
Harry like to motor like a boy on a mission
The jeep did a loop now Harry's gone fishin

 

Harry had a thing with the girl at the deli
Rennaisance babe witha fine Boticelli
Harry knew the babe was the talk of the day
Now Harry got to play away

The Land Of Maybe

The World is closing down
The World is on its ass
The demon is at your doorway
It ain’t going to let you past
The World has had enough
It ain’t taking no excuses
And the lights have all gone out
In the state of Massachesettes

 

But hey baby
There’s plenty of gravy in the Land Of Maybe
And hey sugar, with your silver lining

 

The Sun is getting mean
It’s gone on work to rule
Ain’t listening to the wise guys
The shepherds or the fools
The Sun is getting mean
It’s going to burn those sacred cows
It’s like old Bobbie said
It’s really rush hour now

 

But hey baby
There’s plenty of gravy in the Land Of Maybe
And hey sugar, with your silver lining

Be Brave In The Ruins

Light years are calling, bright years in crystal
Light years are calling, not ancient not soon
Dance in the memory, swing in a dervish
Into the shadows, be brave in the ruins

 

And the note won’t sound and the door won’t close
And the ball ain’t round and the ice ain’t froze
And the fish don’t swim and my baby won’t call
And now she don’t need me, don’t need me at all

 

Moonlight and shadows, flickered in wonder
Moonlight and shadows, washed in a song
Moonlight and shadows, slip out together
Life from an impulse, a split second long

 

And the rain ain’t wet and the light don’t shine
The sun won’t set and no clock’s got my time
My cigarette won’t smoke and the leaves won’t fall
And now you don’t need me, don’t need me at all

Hootin & A'Coolin

Baby can you see the light shining from the shoreline
Someone’s holding up a candle just for you
And sometimes God knows it’s not so easy
When you need some loving I’ll be coming round for you

 

The owl in the forest don’t let a man get no sleep in
Hootin and a cooin and a tootin through the midnight blue
And sometimes God knows it’s not so easy
When you need some loving I’ll be coming round for you

 

Saw a picture of your mother when you were a baby
She was a good looking lady but she don’t hold a candle to you

  

Baby can you see the light shining from the shoreline
Someone’s holding up a candle just for you
And sometimes God knows it’s not so easy
When you need some loving I’ll be coming round for you
