Summer Song 04:13
Summer Song In a momentary lapse of reason You changed the weather, changed the season You sang out clear, it won’t be long Until we hear our summer song Past winter’s ruin we sailed our boats on Until we reached tall reeds on the seashore We knew our fear here did not belong We sang out clear our summer song And now we swim soft shades of shadow The victim’s quote we shall not remember The ships we sail will carry us on We sing out clear our summer song

If I Was A Lonely Goatherd (2022 version) Well I’m not a lonely goatherd, And I’m not the president I don’t have a million dollars, I’m not counting my last cent I’m not driving in a Cadillac, Or shoveling cement I’m not sitting in a mansion, Or in a refugee tent Yeah I just play the guitar, and my baby pays the rent Well, Joe Biden’s in the Whitehouse, now Trump is out the door Kim Jong Un and Vladimir want to start the next World War Bojo and the Tories, yeah we’ve seen it all before Yeah and no-one really knows what the Europeans are for But it’s a fine fine day, to start all over again There won’t be a better day, to start all over again And if I believed in Santa, I’d grab a pen and write Bring peace to the Ukranians, and stop the endless fight Bring joy to all the children who cry throughout the night They deserve to live in happiness, they deserve a better life And it’s a fine fine day, to start all over again There’ll never be a better day to start all over again Well if we can’t learn to put all our jealousies aside To put our faith in Jesus, and go along for the ride To learn to love each other and for what we have inside To work out how best to live, before we all must die We won’t get a better day, to start all over again No we’ll never see a better day, to start all over again No we'll never see a better day, to start all over again

North-Easter 03:44
North-Easter You know the North-Easter brings the snow Pack up your bags and go, go go go You gotta fly, as far away as you can It makes a meal of a hungry man Take your belongings and your wife and kids by your side Make sure they're buckled in for the ride Get out of here, fortune never favoured the brave Or you'll be spinning in an early grave Summer's gone, dwindled into the past Those autumn memories couldn't last And just when you were searching For the welcome of a better day North-Easter gonna blow you away Get out of bed, and get yourself on the run You can't shoot a hurricane with a gun Load up your truck, put your pedal to the floor North-Easter doesn't want you here no more And just when you were searching For the welcome of a better day North-Easter gonna blow you away And just when you were searching For the welcome of a better day North-Easter gonna blow you away And just when you were searching For the welcome of a better day North-Easter gonna blow you away

No Blankets Required Baby, you said your feet were getting cold She said, well don't go paddling in the river You'll never make your fortune panning for gold Rock solid love is what I deliver She said, it's not like you to be so bold Your little heart is all of a quiver I'm gonna make your blankets unfold I'm gonna make you shake and shiver NO BLANKETS REQUIRED NO BLANKETS REQUIRED We don’t need them this time, babe we’ll be fine I threw them all in the fire She said, if our fire burns out of control Will you go and fetch a pail of water? You're looking at me like a demon of old You're making me feel like the devil's daughter I said, I don't know what you've been told But I heard that you were just digging for treasure My heart's running hot, but my feet are still cold Don't you know that diamonds are forever? NO BLANKETS REQUIRED NO BLANKETS REQUIRED We don’t need them this time, babe we’ll be fine I threw them all in the fire She said Alright now Now our fire has run out of coal We knew it wouldn't burn forever She had a perfect body but a wicked soul My number one true little larrikin lover And now I'm never gonna see her again Not if I'm careful, not if I'm clever You spend a lifetime walking in the sunshine You gotta stop and wash your feet in the river NO BLANKETS REQUIRED NO BLANKETS REQUIRED We don’t need them this time, babe we’ll be fine I threw them all in the fire And now the flames will burn higher...
