Track Name: The Fisherman's Fishwife
the fisherman's fishwife

he pulled a fish out of the ocean
said it made him feel like fishing every moment
moment of his life
his wife said "fish me something real and
you will make me happy
happier than I remember"

fishing makes me happy
happier than I have been in so long
fishing makes me happy
happier than I have been

"I remember meeting for the first time
days like that are so rare we don't
have them anymore
you were dark and handsomer than dad
Dad, I met a real nice boy...
he doesn't wear a nose ring

one fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish
boy fish, girl fish, man fish, woman fish

he pulled a fish out of the ocean
happier than I have been
he is fishing every moment
moment of his life
his wife said "fish me something real"
I met a real nice boy...
can I bring him home?

cat fish, cod fish, rat fish, dog fish
selfish shellfish, bro-fish, tofu fish
Track Name: Switchyard Stomp
switchyard stomp

sunday night at 8 the Switchyard Show is going down
all the ladies and gents are gathering round
you'd better direct your feet to South Monon Street

yes in the yard the fires alight
you didn't bring a dish hope you brought your appetite
you'd better direct your feet to South Monon Street

you could drink some eggnog or eat some venison casserole
sit around the fire singing rock and roll
talk to some people you really should know yes
steal some licks that you really should have stole!

Carpenter and Clerk, Ziona and the gang
third set round the fire, JP's doing his thing
you'd better direct your feet to South Monon Street
Track Name: Riddles of Spring
riddles of spring

you was an old fashion'd crossbow
I was the sun blacken'd mayple
you tooke the shot
something I caught in my heartwood
I'm bleeding the Rivers of Spring

you were the yeast in a milk jug
I was the mash in a bathtub
who closed the lid?
whoever did's a matchmaker
we made love
the sweet smell of spring

Springtime! Springtime!
twisters and breeze
everything Everything Green!
Springtime Springtime!
won't you hurry up?
Moonshine and Maple Syrup
Track Name: Over the Hill
over the hill

darling I see you going over the hill
sitting on my porch thinking ah hell well
I'm glad you gave me another chance to chat with you
I was too scared to say last week bid adeiu but I love you
been away a while and I want to know what is new

how do you do?
are you still reading the classified news?
not too many jobs to choose from?
maybe you should stay here at home
then we wouldn't feel so all alone

darling I see you going over that hill
looking through my window sitting quite still
well I'm glad we gave us another chance to start anew
I was too scared but now I am glad to say we bid adeui
been away awhile and I want to know what is new
maybe you should head out and roam
cause I know that I will never be alone
Track Name: Mumubaba
moomubaaba

I came out here expecting to find
I didn't know I was expecting to find
but music is sweet American Soul
I'm gonna rocket off the edge of the roll
you are a leak--a treasure to find
a crack growing deeper in the root of my mind
now I know what it is I'm trying to say
even if you want us to we won't go away
I've got friends who glow in the dark
they got here by walking on water
Jilly is finding a cabbage she lost
Scotty wears a crown made of brambles and moss

we don't fear
our lives are good and dear
the stars are bright and clear
I know you think you're really something

but your love is like a Dairy-O
you milk the cow and then you milk the goat
you milk them now, but tonight they'll be baying
don't you wish you understood what they were saying?
"moo moo" "baa baa" "moo moo" "baa baa"
mumubaba mumubaba mumubaba
mumubaba mumubaba mumubaba
"hey Baaba" "yeah Mumoo?"
"I like your name." "I like yours too."
MumuBabaMumuBabaMumuBaba
Mumubabamumubabamumubaba

you're nodding off again tonight
not until the song my hand does wright
my head does right when I tell it to pray
I Left it by the water and the Right went away
now you tell me what's good and bad
and I'll tell you 'my friends can walk on water'
I've got friends in the barn and friends in the basement
big friends and little friends oh friends are my fav'rit

you think you're really something but you're
Lost in space Alone.
embrace your darkest dream.

I might not be anything...
Track Name: Kokia's Son
kokia's son

leave your bow behind you, little hunter
let your long hair blowing in the wind
all that was once felled is now inside you
you need never pass this way again
you need never come
oh Kokia's son is coming home

leave your boat behind you, little sailer
let your long hair blowing in the wind
all that was once felt is now inside you
you need never pass this way again
you need never come

wide eyed and red handed seeking bone
your own are cathedrals of living stone
and breathing

oh Kokia's son is coming home
oh Kokia's son, the Way is open for you!

see the lillys smile, see how the water laughs
and dances down the silver river stones
see all the may pole maidens lifted by the
hands of Alehandra who is always in the wind...

you need never pass this way again
you need never come
oh Kokia's son is coming home...
Track Name: World Go Round (Miss B's Waltz)
miss B's waltz

if I ever see her again I will tell her
that I know we were meant to be together
even if only for an afternoon
and I hope that she won't think of me a coward
for sleeping at my grandmother's house
and singing silly songs that have no gravity
as if Love really did make the world go round

if I never saw her face I wouldn't know it
and my world would be a change different world
but as it is I'm in it now this evening
if I never see her again I won't tell her
and she'll never know I thought about her so
the world is full of pretty fools and I am one
sing as if Love really does make the world go round

if I never see her again I won't last long
and my life will be a waste of a soul
I've got to know if she will be the death of me
and if Love really does make the world go round
Track Name: Marc's Little Dogs
four little dogs (by marc haggerty)

I had a little dog that had a little dog
that had a little dog that had a little dog

well the first little dog well he wasn't that bad
but that wasn't the only dog we had
well the first little dog had fleas and ticks
and he barked all night just for kicks
the first little dog well he wasn't that bad
but that wasn't the only dog we had

well the second little dog was a whole lot worse
he chew'd tobacco and he learned to curse
he'd chase down little kids on their cute little bikes
and he bit up the loosers in tomcat fights
well the first little dog well he wasn't that bad
but that wasn't the only dog we had

well the third little dog was a whole lot badder
he would drink all day just to fill his bladder
then he'd pee on people that would try to pet him
just to try and make a bad impression
well the first little dog well he wasn't that bad
but that wasn't the only dog we had

well the fourth little dog was the worst of all
he chew'd up the carpet and he burnt down the mall
he played rap-dog cussing on the cd player
he stole ten dollars and he run for mayor
well he one that election but here's whats sad
he was the best damn mayor that we ever had

I had a little dog that had a little dog
that had a little dog that had a little dog
