I’m glad I met you when I did

May 24, 2019

I’m
Glad
I met you when I did

I was
About
To flip my lid

I’m
Acting
Like a little kid

I’m
Glad
I met you when I did

I’m
Glad
I met you when I did

Cuz
I was
Keeping my heart hid

No more
Living
Off the grid

I’m
Glad
I met you when I did

when the bridge gates fall

May 18, 2019

When you can’t make it home
When you’re stuck in a rut
When the roads are frozen over
When everything is shut
When hope is mirage
When there’s torment in your gut

When the bridge gates fall
When you’re walking in the trees
When the world opens up
When your heart gets a squeeze
When you’re finally together
When you’re overwhelmed with ease

Regular Joe in the Mushy Mushy Middle

May 11, 2019

I love to get along
I’m so sensible and wise
Always helping out the rich folks
Cuz I love to compromise

You can find me on the road
In the mushy mushy middle
With all my big money boys
And the dead armadillos

I’m a Regular Joe
And I love the common man
You know I love your daughter
I’m doing what I can

You can find me on the road
In the mushy mushy middle
With all my big money boys
And the dead armadillos

I’ve been taking their cash
For forty-seven years
I really oughta listen
When they sing in my ear

You can find me on the road
In the mushy mushy middle
With all my big money boys
And the dead armadillos

We sent away your jobs
And we called it free trade
But it worked out pretty well
Cuz all my friends got paid

You can find me on the road
In the mushy mushy middle
With all my big money boys
And the dead armadillos

You wanna save the world
And give the folks a fair shake
Do I look like Karl Marx?
Just give me a break

You can find me on the road
In the mushy mushy middle
With all my big money boys
And the dead armadillos

Hello Hello
It’s nice to me you
I’m such a happy little girl
That’s my mommy
That’s my grandpa
It’s a happy sunshine world

I hope somebody loves you
Are you lucky
Just like me?
Everybody
Should be happy
I love everyone I see
