about

Prince Perry Uvita, Costa Rica

Or at least someone else's whom you know well enough to borrow their car. ... more

Track Name: Walking On The Moon
Walking On The Moon (Sting)

Giant steps are what you take
Walking on the moon
I hope my legs don't break
Walking on the moon
We could walk forever
Walking on the moon
We could be together
Walking on, walking on the moon

Some may say
I'm wishing my days away
No way
And if it's the price I pay
Some say
Tomorrow's another day
You stay
I may as well play

Walking back from your house
Walking on the moon
I'm walking home from your house
Walking on the moon
My feet don't hardly make a sound
Walking on the moon
Feet don't hardly touch the ground
Walking on, walking on the moon

Some may say
I'm wishing my days away
No way
And if it's the price I pay
Some say
Tomorrow's another day
You stay
I may as well play

Tomorrow's another day
Tomorrow's another day
Tomorrow's another day
Tomorrow's another day
Track Name: Whatever You Can Get Away With
Whatever You Can Get Away With (Gladstone)

Does it matter what we do?
Does it matter what we say?
Does the world keep turning if we stay at home that day?

Chorus
Do what you do, do what you say
Do whatever you can get away with
(repeat)


If I steal a look at you
If you steal a look at me
Will our worlds collide?
Will we, be happy?

Chorus

When my lips turn blue
When I go astray
Can I still come home?
Will it, be OK?

Does it matter what we do?
Does it matter what we say?
Does it matter what we do?
Does it matter what we say?

Chorus
Track Name: Spinning Girl
Spinning Girl (Gladstone)

There’s a spinning girl in my dreams
She’s red and orange so it seems
Right as rain and sure as snow
With every turn my blue heart grows

I long to take her from this place
And show her how the ocean tastes
Phosphorescence in our wake
when the sun goes down again

Spinning girl oh let me see
the mirror here won’t talk to me
Spinning girl you came along
and now I know how much I long

Songs about her fill the air
rhthyms softly sooth my ear
The deer come running from afar
and nest themselves along her arms

Chorus

When the record reaches the end
the riding needle pops and trim
I close my eyes and she comes in
And spinning girl begins to spin

Chorus

Track Name: Love At The End of The Century
Love at the end of the Century (Gladstone/Girio)

My mom’s old man is calling non-stop
looking for love if he’s ready or not
Searching the book for company
senior discount, or maybe for free

The Dorman’s got it on V.H.S.
what he’s thinking is anyone’s guess
He rings ‘em up, looking to score
by the time they arrive he forgets what its for

CHORUS
This is love at the end of the century
This is love at the end of the century


Shave and a haircut for fifty cents
a can of tuna lasts all weekend
A penny pinched until it bleeds
but a little action costs three fifties

CHORUS

He’s got his teeth, they’re just for show
nowhere to be, nowhere to go
Coping a feel, whenever he please
‘cause nothing to lose is impunity


CHORUS X 2

Track Name: You Won’t Say It
You Won’t Say It - (King Kong Girio)

Down on my street under the roof
Out on the floor, you and I
Drinking the proof mixing the juice
And fucked up and smiling

I’m singing out of tune
And you say I’ve got the words all wrong
But I’m so in love with you
And you say its all the same old song
How can I tell the truth
If you won’t say it

You brush my arm and give me the shivers
I take your drink you wrestle me for it
You cry out loud it isn’t fair
Well It isn’t anything

If I’m singing out of tune
Then you say I’ve got the words all wrong
If I’m so in love with you
And you say its all the same old song
How can I tell the truth
If you wont say it, ever
You wont tell me the truth
Now tell me the truth

We get up to dance and fall on the floor
And can’t stop from laughing for almost an hour
I kiss your face, you roll away
And bark at the moon

Well I’m singing out of tune
And you say I’ve got the words all wrong
But I’m so in love with you
And you say its all the same old song
But how can I tell the truth
But how can I tell the truth
If I’m so in love with you
And you wont say it
But you wont say it
But you wont say it
But you won’t say it

Track Name: Bee On The Bus
Bee On The Bus (Gladstone)

The windows were open with spring in the air
My beauty walked on after paying her fare
And paid she no mind, a bee in her hair
The seats were all taken but one by the stair

Cut at the knee commanding a stare
The season anew a skirt she did dare
With hands at her sides, she bent for the chair
And sat on the bee as it took to the air

Chorus
A bee bit my ass on the bus
A bee bit my ass
A bee bit my ass
A bee bit my ass!!!!

My beauty lept up a curse thrown about
Taken aback at what came from her mouth
The passengers shocked it was beyond doubt
Too late for the bee who’s life had gone out

Chorus

Repeat first verse

Chorus
Track Name: Say You Won’t
Say You Won’t (Catherine Nomura, 2009)

Say you won’t leave me today
Maybe tomorrow, maybe next week
Just say you won’t, leave me today
Can’t take the sorrow, maybe next week

Things will be better, and I’ll send you on your way
Yeah I’ll send you on your way
But please don’t leave me today

Say you won’t hurt me today
Maybe tomorrow, maybe next week
Just say you won’t, hurt me today
Can’t take the sorrow, maybe next week

Things will be better, and I’ll send you on your way
Yeah I’ll send you on your way
But please don’t hurt me today

Say you won’t love me today
Maybe tomorrow, maybe next week
Just say you won’t, love me today
Can’t take the sorrow, maybe next week

My life will be better, and I’ll join you on your way
Yeah I’ll join you on your way
I’ll join you on your way
But please don’t leave me today
Please don’t leave me today…

Track Name: Yo Te Vi
Yo Te Vi (Gladstone, Mena, Girio, 2010)

Chorus
Yo te vi
Yo te hablé
Yo te deseabá, deseabá
Y te prometí

Ahora empieza un nuevo dia
Illusiones perdidas
Todos mis amigos, dicen lo que quieren
Otro sueño ya seha ido

Chorus

And now it turns, another day
Expectations have fallen away
And all my friends will have their say
Another dream has gone astray

Bridge:
Tu sabias la verdad
Yo te di felicidad
No podias escapar
Y querias libertad
Yo deseo olvidar
Nadie sabe donde estas

Chorus X 2
Track Name: Until It Don’t Happen
Until It Don’t Happen (Gladstone-Girio)


You think that your so tough
You think that life’s so rough
But you don’t know, you’re the one
That makes it all true

You think that its hard to go
You think that its all a show
But you don’t know, everyone
Isn’t looking at you

Chorus

You say what you are
And you don’t know, don’t know
You are what you say
Until it don’t happen, happen

I think about you so much
I think that I need a crutch
But I don’t know, I‘m the one
Who makes it all true

I think when its time to go
I think that we always know
But I don’t know, what’s next

Chorus

First Verse repeat

Track Name: Wire
Wire (King Kong Girio)

Bell operator is kickin’ me hard
She’s calling me a liar
Sweet oscillator, start making that sound
Right through the phone to the pyre

Chorus
I’m gonna tear out the wire, tear out the wire, tear out the wire
I’m gonna tear out the wire, tear out the wire, tear out the wire

Second debater has pulled all the stops,
He says that its all here on paper
Crossing the lines of the lines that got crossed
My crime could not be any greater

Chorus

Bridge:
Thinking the thoughts that tear in two
Thoughts that are only meant for me
Thinking of how it is I’ll do
Tearing up your monopoly

Tear out the wire, tear out the wire
I’m gonna tear out the wire, tear out the wire, tear out the wire
Track Name: On It Goes
On it Goes (Gladstone/Girio)

Chorus
On and on and on it goes
On it goes around me
On and on and on it goes
On it goes around me

Verse 1
When in doubt I scream and shout
So people know what the hell I’m talking about
When in doubt I cast about
Until the things I’m doin’ all work themselves out

Chorus

All the time we beg and whine
For all the things that seem to us to be sublime
And all the time we seek to find
Another way for people to believe we’re divine

Chorus

Bridge
Hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey
Hey hey hey hey

Chorus
