FISH
CD4#1

Sometimes we're up, sometimes we're down,
much like a fish a flippin' aroun'.
Sometimes we're stressed sometimes we're squeezed.
Hey now are we some kin' a disease?

Sometimes we sing like a sweet bird,
singin' so soft hardly we're heard,
then we get trapped so what the hell.
We jump to our feet stand up an yell!

Jack of all trades, master of none.
Workin' long hours still havin' fun.
Slapped in the face, kicked in the spleen.
This so called life ain't what it seems!


PARTY DAZE
CD4#2

Sometimes feelin' all alone,
very, very much at home.
Think about the party days,
never thought would go away.

Party on from dusk till dawn,
havin' fun an' singin' songs.
Toastin' to our creaturehood,
far as far as far we could!

Friendship sure meant somethin' then,
not jus' TV's lose or win.
Rappin' by the friendly fire,
tellin' jokes an' getting' higher,

Touched so deep within our soul,
long lost heart of rock 'n roll.
Children of Aquarius,
throttled by the perilous.

First they killed the Kennedys,
scrambled up Vietnamese,
Lined the pockets of the thugs,
launched their phoney "war on drugs"!

Never crossed their twisted minds,
Consciousness is quite sublime!
Goons croakin' on their radio -
Hell to their holy hate patrol!


ALASKA
CD4#3

Wisdom in them salmon,
they know their way back home.
Wisdom in them grizzlies,
Kotzebue to Nome.
Heaven's in our hometown yet we're
homesick for the stars.
So climb on in my dogsled,
let's take off for Mars.

Matanuska Valley Thunder is really very good.
Take that spirit with us, a campin' in the wood.
From Denali down to Kenai,
eagles spread their wings.
Spirit of Alaska, some things never change.

Islands like green emeralds -
Grand Aleutian Chain!
Our Gruman Goose is flyin'
through Aleutian wind an' rain.
Onward to Nikolski, stop by Makushin Bay,
Volcanoes rock Four Brothers,
Aleutian gods must play.

Been missin' you so long, hey Alaska where ya gone?


CARESS
CD4#4

If you only knew every picture of you,
(i hold) so deep within,
no matter the ghost of me driftin' through the days.
Deep in m'soul our song's softly rollin' downstream,
a reflection of you an' me embracing our dream.

How many ways can i say, "i love you?"
How many ways can you caress my heart?
When will the loving days we spend together,
outnumber the lonely nights we must spend apart?


TOADY
CD4#5

As i was walkin' out today
thought i heard sweet baby say,
"What's a'comin' over you,
what ya think, ya gonna do?"
Said "gorgeous i donno,"
somehow stumbled to the show.
Said "gorgeous i donno,"
somehow stumbled to the show.

As i was walkin' down the road,
came across a friendly toad,
said, "i know where ya' goin' to,
somewhere deep inside a' you!"
i know where ya goin' to,
somewhere deep inside a' you.
i know where ya gonna stay,
where the dreambirds fly away.

As i was layin' in m'bed,
little voices in m'head,
"i know where ya goin' to,
somewhere deep inside a' you.
i know where ya goin' to,
somewhere deep inside a' you.
i know where ya gonna stay,
where the dreambirds fly away."


HEAVEN SENT
CD4#6

We so happy we alive, we together can survive.
Stop the bullshit, stop the lies,
now's the time, legalize!
Tell me brother, tell me true,
what the hell, we gonna gonna do?

Remember the days, we saw purple haze?
One an' one an' one is three,
hey, yeah baby what ya do to me!

We so happy we alive, we together can survive.
What mother nature, heaven sent,
don't belong to government!
Hey there sister what's the plan,
do ya really, really understand?

Remember the days, we saw purple haze?
One an' one an' one is three,
hey, yeah baby what ya do to me!

We so happy we alive, we together can survive,
Stop the bullshit, stop the lies,
now's the time, legalize!
Half the world, up in smoke,
Where on earth can we take a toke?

Remember the days, we saw purple haze?
One an' one an' one is three,
hey, yeah baby what ya do to me!

Human nature full an' free, modifies reality,
Open up inner flower, peace an' love, inner power.
Open up inner flower, peace an' love, inner inner power!

Remember the days...


MUCH 2 MUCH
CD4#7

Hey, where ya goin' to?
Girl, what's your rush?
Hey, where ya goin' to?
Girl, you're much too much!

Much too much, ya make me hot.
Much too much, over the top.
Much too much, ya feel the warm.
Much too much, unleash your storm!

Much too much, your lightenin' strikes.
Much too much, ya toss the dice.
Much too much, you're on a roll.
Much too much, ya gotta go, go, go!

Hey, where ya goin' to?
Girl, give me a chance!
Hey, where ya goin' to?
Run, from sweet romance?

Much too much...


MORNIN'
CD4#8

Every mornin' i get up early,
put my clothes on in a hurry,
walk outside an' up the avenue,
as the yellow sun comes into view.

An' i wonder "what will this day bring,
will it make me think or daydream,
an' what people will i chance to meet,
as i walk on up this busy street?"

For some i know jus' what it will be,
they will rush an' brush right past me,
as they hurry on their little way,
in the early mornin' of this day.

But i don't guess that is so bad,
or should cause me to feel sad,
for each person is all alone,
an' has a life all their own.

An' life is such an' endless pace,
of the things we must face,
if we are to say we really care,
about the many things we do share.

So i will return home this evenin'
thinkin' of all i am leavin'
people i have met this golden day,
who once were here but now,
but now, have gone away.


MORE
CD4#9

Have you ever wished you'd stayed at home in bed,
Why get up when ya jus' can't get ahead?
Your mind is weary an' ya feel real sore,
An' those window envelopes jus' keep callin' out for,

More more more, give us more, we need
more more more, give us more, we want
more more more, give us more, or we'll turn ya over,
over an' over, over an' over.

Have you ever noticed ya live in a fryin' pan?
while others worry, how to get a tan?
Sizzlin' on the fire grows warmer,
reachin' for some protective armor.

Burn, burn, burn baby burn, now it's time to
Burn, burn, burn baby burn, cause ya have to
Burn, burn, burn baby burn, or we'll turn ya over,
over an' over, over an' over.

Sure is nice jus' t'pay with plastic,
till things get tight an' a little spastic
doin' your best you keep on tryin'
but deep inside someone is fryin'.

More more more, give us more...


BYE
CD4#10

Bye, bye bye baby,
Bye, bye bye for now.
Bye, bye bye baby,
Hey, we're gonna make it somehow!

It's been such a long time,
since ya kicked me out the door.
It's been such a long time,
since ya threw me 'cross the floor.
Now i know it's nearly time,
comin' back for more!

Bye, bye bye baby...

It's been such a long time,
since we felt that lovin' glow.
It's been such a long time,
since we let our grumpies go!
So i jus' dropped by to say,
"Didn't i tell ya so!"

Bye, bye bye baby...


SANDCASTLES
CD4#11

What can i say, what can i do?
We fill with air an' we feel the flow too.
We build our sandcastles right on the beach.
So what have we learned, what can we teach?

i know my shell is slowly breakin' down,
cause i feel like sand washin' aroun'.

i thought i could make everything right,
bring on the sunshine, close out the night,
an' then it happened, the joke was on me.
now i walk quietly alone by the sea.

Fly seagulls fly away,
don't worry about tomorrow,
don't worry about today,
all the air is yours now,
mine has slipped away.

You tell me you don't feel like talkin' to me.
You say you don't care if we agree.
i swallow me words an' feel strange inside,
no place for comfort, nowhere to hide.

An' my shell jus' keeps breakin'
an' those wave jus' keep shakin' me,
free from myself.


LOVE!
CD4#12

One day the lord was walkin' near Galilee,
people were wonderin' "Who could this be?"
This man from Bethleham everyone had heard
commanded all life with but a single word.
Who was this walkin' all alone?
People came followin' far from their homes,
"What sort of man is this?"

An' then the Lord said "Love, love your brother,
Love yourself an' love one another.
Love each day ya have to live.
Love yourself an' all you can give.
Love everything, ya feel an' see.
Love everyone, in them love me.
Amen I say, Amen!"

One early mornin' near the temple courtyard,
scribes gathered 'roun' for t'test the Lord
about the question of the Sabbath Day,
Moses set aside for us t'rest an' pray.
We have also heard 'bout the many things' ya done,
the discontent ya caused an' the unrest ya begun.
What say you for yourself?"

An' then the Lord said "Love, love your brother,
Love yourself an' love one another.
Love each day ya have to live.
Love yourself an' all you can give.
Love everything, ya feel an' see.
Love everyone, in them love me.
Amen I say, Amen!"

One day a rich young man from Jerusalem
came to see the lord an' to ask of him
what one should do who found that deep within
a sadness remained although he never sinned.
He fulfilled every law Moses did command
we would have t'do jus' t' reach the promised land,
"Lord i am empty inside."

An' then the Lord said "Love, love your brother,
Love yourself an' love one another.
Love each day ya have to live.
Love yourself an' all you can give.
Love everything, ya feel an' see.
Love everyone, in them love me.
Amen I say, Amen!"


PEACE
CD4#13

Lord make us an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred let us sow love.
Where there is injury let us sow pardon.
Where there is doubt let us sow faith.*

For You are the potter an' we the clay,
an' we the clay.
We are the work, of your hands,
of your hands.

Where there is darkness let us sow light.
Where there is despair let us sow hope.
Where there is sadness let us sow joy.

For You are the potter an' we the clay,
an' we the clay.
We are the work, of your hands,
of your hands.

O Divine Master grant that we may not so much
seek to be consoled as to console,
to be understood as to understand,
to be loved as to love.

For You are the potter an' we the clay,
an' we the clay.
We are the work, of your hands,
of your hands.

It is in giving that we receive,
in pardoning that we are pardoned,
in dying that we are born to eternal life!

For You are the potter an' we the clay,
an' we the clay.
We are the work, of your hands,
of your hands.

(*traditional verse)


IRELAND FOREVER
CD4#14

May the road rise with you,
May the wind be at your back.
An' may the Lord hold you,
Ever in the hollow of his hand.*

Sing out, sing out,
while we're together so near.
Sing out, an' look aroun'
for we won't long remain here.

An' may the road rise with you,
may the wind be at your back.
An' may the Lord hold you,
ever in the hollow of his hand

Fare you well! Fare you well,
Now that it's come time to leave.
Fare you well in your search
Through all those things we believe.

An' may the road rise with you,
may the wind be at your back.
An' may the Lord hold you,
ever in the hollow of his hand.

(*traditional verse)


PSALMS
CD4#15

Like a young deer yearnin' for running streams,
so i too am yearning, for you my Lord.
Every day in sorrow, i waste away,
Wondering within myself, "where is my Lord?"

My tears have been my bread by day and night.
As i walked with eyes downcast, cross desert lands.
Why should i go on like this, mournin' my life away,
forgetful of the joyful prayer that once rose from my heart.

By the streams of Babylon, we sat & wept,
When we remembered Sion, our homeland yet.
On the willows of that land we hung up our harps,
For it was too much to sing of our homeland far away.

Now roaring waters call to me,
"come quench your thirst,
For I the Lord have been with you
ever since your birth.
Though sometimes you can't perceive,
my presence here,
Continue living peacefully,
there's just no cause for fear."

You put gladnes in my heart,
more than when wine abounds.
You put gladness in my heart,
more than when grain's been ground.
For in sorrow i have sown,
ever since my spring,
So in joy this song will rise
reapin' as i sing.
