The pain of change isn't as bad as the pain of staying the same.

Let your fingers do the walking!

My baby's got eyes for another man
And now she don't even wanna hold my hand
I fear that our love may be coming to its final end
Cause baby's got eyes for another man

She's says they're only friends, but I know she pretends
She must think that I just don't see
The way he looks at her and how she looks at him
And the future looks so bad for me

Tell me you love me if you do
If I do I will tell you
It's no good to keep your love in
Give it to all women and men, oh

And I will always love you
As long stars are above you

When someone gives you their love
Return it, it will be fun
It's no good to keep your love in
Give it to all women and men, oh

Over the years entertaining in America
Has become more and more relaxed
Informal gatherings of family and friends have ensured the popularity of
Quick to prepare and easy to eat
Nibbles and snacks

No fuss impromptu parties are as successful today
As were the long formal dinners of yesteryear
Eating habits, too, have relaxed
Americans love finger food

Perhaps this casual approach to eating
Reflects the pioneer spirit within us
We have also developed a preference for
Certain foods as appetizers
We often eat
Cheese, raw vegetables, seafood
And poultry as snacks
And party foods

Quando yo ere hoven
Yo abon done de mi casa
La raja a la ciudad grande
La ciudad grande

Aja yo experienceria muchas cosas
Quando yo ere hoven
Yo abon done de mi casa

Como si a una mujer akien
Mi estrujo en los negocios
Como si a un hombre akien
Mi estrujo en amorar

Pero quando yo erquese a mi casa
Todo era differente?

At the muddy ponds
Surrounded by cedars and cow patties
I smoked cigarettes
Stolen one at a time
And filled a strainer with fish
Some bright and others not
By God, I was king
King of all I saw
And that ole farmer chased me off
Waving a shotgun
I was his king too and laughed
As I drug the fishtails across the field

My mother pointed me away from the house
Disgusted by my catch
And I looked at a catfish
Its mouth opening and closing slowly
Saying he was king once too

[09] WATCH
Watch this
Watch out!


Fallin' in love again after so many screwups
Time will tell if I passed or failed
Maybe I'll just keep fallin' in love

And when you let me in your heart
You will see
That it's the only place, the only place
The best place for me

Let me get right down to my point
You're the drug for me, I need not go and smoke a joint
I'm happy as a pig and the thing that goes "oink"
Love done hit me in the head, and it made the sound of "doink"

I wanna take you way up up into the sky
I invented a machine in which we both can fly
I got no pilot license, I'm annoyed at every guy
But I know that we can make it if we only try

Come fly away in my funcopter
(Funcopter, funcopter, it's the love doctor)
Come fly away in my funcopter

It's called the funcopter, and it's painted blue and green
Maybe you've seen it too, if only in a dream
In it we can fly up high and not be seen
And if you go up with me, then I know you will believe

You say, what's a funcopter? I've never heard of this
It's a machine that I invented to fill your heart with bliss
Our destination: love, I know we cannot miss
And when we are up in it, perhaps then we will kiss

[13] SO LONG
Well, it's been so long
Since I've had someone to love me
So long, so long
I have been waiting for you

And it's been some time
Since I've had someone to hold me
So long, so long
I have been waiting for you

And I was so lonely
Well, I didn't know what to do 'til I found you, and
You changed everything
Yeah, you made me sing
Made me sing songs about why I'm so happy now

Now those days are gone
Goodbye to the sad and lonely
So long, so long
I have been waiting for you

Underneath hungry woodsmen
Hunting through starched dry open meadows
Full of the sun's angry heat
Flowers, unnerved, respond softly
With foreign tongues
Only missing subtitles
Stomp, clomp
Each flower tries dodging boots
Pleading the case to God
Millennia ago
Sitting unbiased, blind
Holding loosely a flower's fate
And smiling the whole time
Not exactly concerned with
How it turns out
Watch as the woodsmen trample
So sadly across subtle variations
Going unnoticed and uncared for
Stomping flowers
I am stuck here with a bottle of beer, and I love you
You have been gone with him far much too long and I care

Why should I love you?
Asthma chazza doo, I wanna sing
Why should I love you
Yeah, uh-huh, alright, come on

Nobody told me that you could be cold so I loved you
Just how you talked to me, just how we walked as a pair

Why should I love you?
Now you're never true, I wanna sing
Why should I love you
Yeah, uh-huh, alright, come on

Every night of lies I wanna cry
Fallng, my friend
She won't compromise, I wanna die
Suicide won't do, so

I'll go away so you can't hear me say that I love you
Then you will see what it's like without me in your hair

Sometimes wonder if you're real
When my arms reach out to feel
Open and then, you're still there

Oh Sherry
You probably think I'm some kind of freak
Cause you're in my heart
After just two weeks

I could look into your eyes
We're wrapped in two whole lifetimes
If only God would let me

Please just excuse my heart
You slow down, sometimes it won't start
It has never felt this before

Oh Sherry
Sometimes it may be pity at night
And I can still dream of
Watching TV in Baker Street

Let me be your helping hand
Can I be your right hand man?
I'd do the things that need doing whenever I can
If you let me be your helping hand

Like the birdie that cleans the crocodile's teeth
I'll depend on you and you'll depend on me

Share and share alike
I give to you, you give it back
It's all I know how to do
I don't know you but
Soon I'm going to
The stars above you tell me
It is true
I'll get to you, I'll get to you

When you walk by
I'll stop and say hi
And how's your day been?
Then give you a grin
I'll get to you, I'll get to you

And I don't even know your name
But it just don't matter none to me
And I'll get to you just the same
You wait and see
I'll do such a good job you will want to get to me

But you won't have to
I know it is true
You already gotten to me
And it is plain to see
You got to me
And I'll get to you when I get to you

[30] CDs
CDs are so much fun
CDs are second to none

CDs are the way I choose to entertain myself
CDs are neat, sounding unbeatable
CDs look so good and yet they take so little space
CDs are here, nothing there to erase

Hey, why's everybody watching DVDs?
I got some compact discs, people!
Push play, repeat
Random magazine

CDs make a man into a world celebrity
CDs are good
CDs are right for me

Long distance love, so far away
Long distance love, I can't afford to pay
My telephone bills are piling up in hills
Long distance love, I'm coming home to you

Long distance love, I called AT&T
Long distance love, please disconnect me

Ten cents a minute for hours at a time
Long distance romance on the telephone line
10-3-2-1 ain't saving me a cent
At the end of the month I still can't pay my rent

Well, a body's got to have nutrition
But the heart needs a little attention too
I think it's time that I mentioned to you
That your love, your love it is my food

When I get that hankerin' for a hunka
A slice o' pizza, a chunka of your love
I don't get bashful or embarrassed, it's true
Cause your love is the love I'm thinkin' of

Your love is my food
And I don't mean to be rude
But I'm hungry
So won't you give it to me?
Don't need a fork or spoon
Just need a sunny afternoon and you
So won't you give it to me?

Sometimes I go back for seconds
But in seconds, I get hungry again
My friends say I should go on a diet
But then I look at my tummy
I rub it, and I grin

Fisherman's dreams
Dragged the bottom of the blue lake rivers
Where rods and reels don't reach
There, catfish settle into the mud
Like a tree on the floor
Heavy and somber, and eat what passes by
Growing big car-size and brown
Like the mud, only to die
Never making photographs with men smiling
As they hang by a hook in their throat

I counted the days' whispers
From under my bedspread
Eleven to be exact
Three to myself in disgust
And one while driving
The other I don't remember
Four came from one's hungry eyes
Check out that sexy thing
Ready to bite anything long-legged to come by
The last three all came to my head
I said not to worry
I said work faster
The last said
You're doing this for no reason

And I don't mind if you don't give me valentines
As long as you say you're true
And though it's not the same, you won't hear me complain
Because I still love you

I love you and I think that I always will
So I don't mind if you don't give me valentines
As long as you love me still

Laughing, running, skipping, jumping
Thinking about the week when we were in love
Singing, dancing, loving, romancing
Thinking about the week when we were in love

Now those days are gone
But I can still remember
What started in October never made it to November but that's ok
It was fun anyway
When we were...

She is no subject of the king
She is the subject of no one
She will not bow to kiss his ring
That is not her idea of fun

Cause she's a modern, modern, modern, modern, modern, modern, modern, modern woman
Living in a medi, medi, medi, medi, medi, medi, medieval time

She won't set foot inside a dungeon
She says, "Jousting is so passe."
She's really the one that started the reformation
But that's not what the history books say

You think Joan of Arc is cool
Well, she needs to go back to school
Where do you think she learned it all from?
She's a modern woman
Living in a medieval time
And you know that can't be fun.

Steve nīKrys,

Sorry I havenīt written--I have lots of finals right now. But so what, I should have written to tell you how absofreakinglutatiously awesome our cd is! Iīve listened via speakers on two different stereos, and last night on headphones. Love every second; Am I really the next R. Stevie Moore?

"Dewey Decimal System" is my fav, and so is "Appe/Aftertizers," and so is "The Bluegrass State," and so is the perfect keyboard solo on Judaīs song. Itīs turned an otherwise shitty semester into something I can be really proud of. Iīm still gonna call you on the phone--got to go but phone card first though. I see John tomorrow; I wonīt mention a thing until everyone hears it.

The web pages are endless and wonderful,
Bryan ________________________________________ ______
