wrinkles only go where the smiles have been
times not for savin', oh no times not for that
If we werent all crazy we would all go insaine
So nice to be in OHIO agin, and come monday
You are what you are
The sound of the weather is heavens rag time band
I'd rather die while I'm livin than live while I'me dead
What if the hokey pokey is all it relly is about
So anything you'd love to do just say someday I will
I wannna go back to the islands
The world keeps closin' in, it has before, it will agin
Where has the time all gone
I don't know, and I don't care
But theres that one perticular harbor, so far, but yet so near, where I see the days fade away, and finally dissapear
I guess we are the people our parents wrned us about
Tonight I just need my gituar, don't need to feel important or famous
I gotta go where it's WARM
I wish I had a pencil thin mustach, then I could solve some myestries to
Strange situation, wide occupation, livin' my life like a song
One lucky man with my feet in the sand
It's my job to be cleaning up this mess, and that's enugh reason to go for me
Yes, my whole life lies wating behind door #3
Theres a little bit of fruitcake left in every one of us
Barefoot children in the rain, got no need to explain
Will it ever make sense, will it ever ring a bell, only time will tell
You need a holiday, take a holiday
Overkill, Overkill, such a meglamodern problemantic ill, climb to fast, and shove to hard, you'll be pushin up the daisys in some old bone yard
I can't help it I just tell the truth
and Jimmy theres still so much to be done...
WWW Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent

It's my job, to be better than the rest and that's a rough break for me. (actually, that whole song!)

Some folks see a bird's eye view, others haven't got a clue.

If the phone doesn't ring it's me.

Some of it's magic, and some of it's tragic, but I had a good life all the way.

So write your own ending and hope it comes true.

You've only got two choices, having fun or freaking out.

And one that's really growing on me .... We have rum from the Caribbean and Burgundy from France.

and one of the best... see below:

Quotes, but not lyrics......

1. "Live it first, then write it down before you go."

2. "The stars are the holes in the floor of heaven."

3. "My kids don't give a damn about my accomplishments in the music 'bidness'. To them I am primarily the Pancake Man."

4. "If you want to make a little money in the airline business, start with a lot."

5. "Creativity is just undetected plagiarism."

6. "There are a lot of smart middle-aged people but not many wise ones. That comes with 'time on the water'."

7. "I've been home barely an hour, and I'm thinking of where to go next. What is that all about?"

8. "In my time on the water and on the beach, the most important thing I have learned is that paddling around should be as much fun as riding the wave."
"Creativity is just undetected plagiarism".......Bubba (plagiarized from bathroom wall?)
