SPARE TIRE ORCHESTRA ALBUM

SPARE TIRE ORCHESTRA
HAIR OF THE DOG
INDIA
THE REMAINS
TRUE LIFE ADVENTURE
THE BALLAD OF JOHN STEELE
MOONLIGHT OVER PARIS
YOU CHILD

SPARE TIRE ORCHESTRA 
(Peter Mayer) 
Pack a suitcase and an old guitar 
Throw in a drum and a saxaphone 
We traveled westward through the midwestern towns 
And the amber waves of the radio
I fed the dog, did you switch off the lights back home 
I Swear I left something behind 
But trouble’s got a way of showing up when 
Right now’s the last thing on your mind

I’m a wall clock, my hands are stuck, but twice a day I’m right 
I’m a three legged dog but I can wag my tail alright 
We’re broken down on the highway not a town in sight 
Got my spare tire orchestra playing right here tonight

We work so hard to be sure and sheltered 
Keep those plates a spinnin’ left and right 
But sometimes its just a smile that makes your day and 
Sometimes a song can save your life

I’m a wall clock, my hands are stuck, but twice a day I’m right 
I’m a three legged dog but I can wag my tail alright 
It's not the pretty love songs that keep your live alive
But a spare tire orchestra playing right here tonight

I’m a wall clock, my hands are stuck, but twice a day I’m right 
I’m a three legged dog but I can wag my tail alright 
It’s not the pretty love songs that keep your love alive 
But a spare tire orchestra now get back in and drive 
Na Na Na Na 

HAIR OF THE 
(Peter Mayer / Jay Oliver) 
I kicked the bad habits yeah I broke ‘em in two 
With nothing left for me but misery babe, 
I had to grow up and go to school 
I’ve let go of everything that I could let go 
But there’s one thing that can make me sing honey and I want more
I felt the sting of Cupid’s arrow…I felt the fever too 
Some doctor said it was all in my head better stick to chicken soup 
You’re the tear in my eye you’re the joy in my heart 
But I need a degree in chemistry baby to comprehend the lovers art

Still I come back to love, by the hair of the dog 
Just one little cup baby of your sweet talk 
I come back to love and I feel fine 
Heavens above just one more time 
I come back to you by the hair of the dog

The first kiss is heaven…then you get your wings 
But no one told me ‘bout these thunder clouds baby 
Or how I’m gonna fly this thing 
I’ve run for the money and I’ve lived for the show 
But I die every time you say goodbye sing it loud? and it’s back I go 
Day by day little by little 
You get to know your friend 
Just when you think you’re rid of 
the riddle 
You have to go and kiss me again
Oh baby...

Gotta come back to love back to love..
I come back to you by the hair of the dog

Still I come back to love, by the hair of the dog 
Just one little cup baby of your sweet talk 
I come back to love and I feel fine 
Heavens above just one more time 
I come back to you by the hair of the dog 
Repeat...

INDIA 
(Roger Guth / Peter Mayer / Jim Mayer / Graham Nash) 
Little girl take my hand 
Before the ways of the world make their demands 
Airplane in the sky 
Day will come you’re gonna learn to say, “goodbye” 
Awww little, little one, Tell me what you see 
Fairy tales and wishing wells, dragons in the sea, Oh
India, you’re my timeless child 
Won’t you sing for me your lullabye 
India, your eyes hold a dream 
Take good care of what tomorrow brings

Tho the Sky is blue, Sun is red 
Does the monster lay beneath your wooden bed?
Storms come in thru the night 
It will change the way you see the morning light 
Whoa, little, little one, Time will come to pass 
Dreams so real, shadow like a falling glass

India, you’re my timeless child 
Won’t you sing for me your lullabye 
India, your eyes hold a dream 
Take good care of what tomorrow brings

Oh my lady?...

Oh, little, little one, windows open wide 
Days is gonna come when you will learn to say, “goodbye”

India, you’re my timeless child 
Won’t you sing for me your lullabye 
India, your eyes hold a dream 
Take good care of what tomorrow brings

My baby?
India 
India 
India

Teach your children well 
Their father’s hell will slowly go by 
And feed them on your dreams 
The ones they pick the ones you’ll know by 
Don’t you ever ask them why if they told you you would cry 
So just look at them and sigh And know they love you 
And know they love you
And know they love you


THE REMAINS 
(Peter Mayer) 
Your lips are moving but I don’t understand 
Your eyes go right through me off to some holy land 
We stand on the islands both in command oh 
And I can’t remember when I lost hold of your hand
You say you got to hold on to what you believe 
And so we hold on tight till we’re completely incomplete 
You don’t want to give out but you won’t give in oh 
When it’s all stripped away only the love will remain

Moonlight and lovesongs lay deep within your dreams 
But true life’s got no manners takes a hammer to your peace of mind
But it’s only you it’s only me yeah
Trying to bring the best of the rest of our love back alive

After the moonshine has got me high 
After the words have all been twisted and turned into lies 
When you and the bad guy are one and the same oh 
When there’s no one to blame, only the love will remain

But it’s only you it’s only me 
Tryin’ to bring the best of the rest of our love back alive 
Come lay your head down there’s no game to win 
Our dreams will find faces and us will be them 
Free as forgiveness a rainbow to rain oh 
When it’s all washed away, only the love will remain it's all stripped only the love only the love ..only the love


TRUE LIFE ADVENTURE
(Roger Guth / Peter Mayer / Jim Mayer) 
Last night I saw my life before my eyes 
Lovers friends and fools drifted by 
Every one of them I’ve been from time to time 
With just a pocketful of miracles to get by
Lovers and madmen angels and badmen 
Trying to live their lives 
Telling the stories living the glories 
It’s a true life adventure 
This is a true life

Some say the clouds bring sorrow ‘round the bend 
Farmer calls them fair weather friend 
We all look up and wonder is it a Lion or a Lamb 
But before you know they’ve changed on you again

Lovers and madmen angels and badmen 
Trying to live their lives 
Telling the stories living the glories 
this is a true life adventure 
It's is a true life

If the number of my days was only one 
Would I understand the things I’ve done 
Whether life is broken hearts or battles won 
Or just the rise and falling of the sun

Lovers and madmen angels and badmen 
Trying to live their lives 
Telling the stories living the glories 
This is a true life adventure 
It's a true life

Ooh yeah yeah yeah...
Lovers and madmen angels and bagmen


THE BALLAD OF JOHN STEELE
(Peter Mayer) 
I fell from the sky June 1945 
To fight the good fight was my mission 
A hero I’m gonna be oh Lord have mercy on me 
A dead or alive one is the question
Down to the fields of France into enemy hands 
Quite a hopeless proposition 
But I never hit the ground I got caught on a steeple like a circus clown 
Another unjustified crucifixion

I miss my baby back home 
Caught in the crossfire I’m so alone 
I keep holding on tryin’ to be strong

Let me down let me down 
Put my feet back on the ground 
I’m danglin’ dancin’ clown let me down 
Let me go let me go 
I’m caught between heaven and earth below 
Take my life or let me know let me go

All the Jacks and Joan of Arcs gave their sweat then they gave their hearts 
took their place in history 
So was it just my luck to be the most famous sitting duck 
It’s a mystery to me

I miss my baby back home 
caught in the crossfire I’m so alone 
I keep holding on tryin’ to be strong

Let me down let me down 
Put my feet back on the ground 
I’m danglin’ dancin’ clown let me down 
Let me go let me go 
I’m caught between heaven and earth below 
Take my life or let me know let me go

I say na na na Na Na na………..

You do your best to prepare 
you study hard you comb you hair 
Get ready for your glorious debut 
Then the cosmic comedian comes and turns her trick again 
you find the punchline is you

I say na na na na Na Na yeah.....


MOONLIGHT OVER PARIS
(Roger Guth / Peter Mayer / Jim Mayer) 
You say you've been overseas 
I say over where?
 You say just a holiday 
My Alsatian heir 
I say I've been working late, working overtime 
Haven't seen the sun since sixty-nine
Does the moonlight shine on Paris 
After the sun goes down?
If the London bridge is falling 
Will anybody hear a sound?
If you follow the sunset will it ever end? 
Does the moonlight shine on Paris?
Do do do do do do....
Oh and how can you just walk away 
Is it something that I said?
I see only Black and White 
You see Green and Red 
You believe in the miracles, water into wine 
I'll believe when it makes the New York Times

Does the moonlight shine on Paris 
After the sun goes down?
If the London bridge is falling 
Will anybody hear a sound?
If you follow the sunset will it ever end? 
Does the moonlight shine on Paris?
Will it ever end?
(great bass solo)
Repeat twice
Do do do do do
Will it ever end?


YOU CHILD (Peter Mayer)
You child everything seems brand new 
Nothing can get me through like you child 
Some days I wake up and find you gone 
Beat of my heart says how long will it be child
Slipped in through my window pane rested on my shoulder 
Off you fly and my whole world grows colder 
Stay a while won’t you child……….

Some days I wake up and find you gone 
Beat of my heart says how long will it be child

Slipped in through my window pane rested on my shoulder 
Off you fly and my whole world grows colder 
Stay a while won’t you Child
