Every Day Was No Fun


I had my day in the sun
Then it rained every day
Every day was no fun
But things are looking up of late
Now I got my head on straight


I had my week in the news
But now I'm old news now
I'm not the news they choose
But things are looking up of late
Since I got my head on straight

You put that sugar in my cup
And that just stirred my spirits up
You took that monkey off my back
And now my train is back on track
Oh yeah!

I spent my year on the roof
Staring up at the stars
Wondering if I was from mars
But things are looking up of late
Now I got my head on straight

You put that sugar in my cup
And that just stirred my spirits up
You took that monkey off my back
And now my train is back on track
Oh yeah!

I lost it all in the crash
I lost everything
I lost all my cash
But things are looking up of late
Now I got my head on straight
But things are looking up of late
Now I got my head on straight

For Now...

Whenever life gets you down, Mrs.Brown
And things seem hard or tough
And people are stupid, obnoxious or daft
And you feel that you've had quite enough

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned
A sun that is the source of all our power
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour
Of the galaxy we call the 'milky way'

Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide

We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point
We go 'round every two hundred million years
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions 
In this amazing and expanding universe

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go, the speed of light, you know
Twelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure
How amazingly unlikely is your birth
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth

Friend



For as long as I have known you
You've been coming to my rescue
And I'm always here to catch you
Every time you fall
After all that we have been through
Guess what it all comes down to
Is knowing I can call you
When my back's against the wall

 

Old friend
Old friend
You keep on believing
Some day we'll come out even
Even if we lose again
Old Friend Old Friend
God knows where we're going 

I guess half the fun's not knowing where we'll wind up in the end
 

We end up in trouble
Every time we get together
People say we should know better
But I hope we never do
We can't live forever
It's here and now or never
You know one way or another we will always make it through

 

Old friend
Old friend
You keep on believing
Some day we'll come out even
Even if we lose again
Old Friend
Old Friend
God knows where we're going
I guess half the fun's not knowing where we'll wind up in the end
 

Old Friend
God knows where we're going
I guess half the fun's not knowing where we'll wind up in the end
Old Friend

You Learn Something New Every Day




July is the month of the Full Buck Moon.  So named because Bucks begin to grow new antlers at this time.  

This full Moon was also known as the Thunder Moon, because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month!.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY

While digesting readers digest
In the back of a dirty book store
A plastic flag with gum on the back
Fell out on the floor.
Well,I picked it up and ran outside
And slapped it on my windowshield.
And If I could see ol’ Betsy Ross
I’d tell her how good I feel.

(Chorus:)
But, you flag decal won’t get you
Into Heaven anymore.
They’re already overcrowded
From your dirty little war
Now Jesus don’t like Killin’
No matter what the reasons for.
And your flag decal won’t get you into Heaven anymore.

Well,I went to the Bank this morning
And the cashier said to me
If you join the Christmas Club
We'll give you ten of them flags for free.
I didn’t mess a round a bit
I took him up on what he said
And stuck them stickers all over my car
And one on my wife’s forehead.

(Chorus:)
But, you flag decal won’t get you
Into Heaven anymore.
They’re already overcrowded
From your dirty little war
Now Jesus don’t like Killin’
No matter what the reasons for.
And your flag decal won’t get you into Heaven anymore.

Well,I got my windshield so filled with flags I couldn’t see
So I ran my car upside a curb and right into a tree
By the time they got a doctor down
I was already dead,
And I’ll never understand
Why the man,
Standing in the Pearly Gates said…

(Chorus:)
But your flag decal won’t get you into Heaven anymore,
We’re already overcrowded from your dirty little war
Now Jesus don’t like killin’
No matter what the reasons for.
And your flag decal won’t get you into Heaven anymore.

How, Indeed...


How am I ever gonna be me
How am I ever gonna be me, Lord
How am I ever gonna be me

When I'm not who I'm supposed to be
A mother's son, a father's boy
A brother's friend, a sister's joy
An uncle cool, a cousin true
And who knows a father too
A shy recluse who once shot in
A patriot, a citizen
How was I born a mystery
How am I ever gonna be me

How am I ever gonna do right
How am I ever gonna do right, Lord
How am I ever gonna do right and do what's good within your sight
Sometimes my best is good enough
Sometimes I bluff that I am tough
I've turned my cheek instead of fight
And made them wrong when they were right
If you help those who help themselves how comes the meek don't fare so well
And I have prayed with all my might
How am I ever gonna do right

How am I ever gonna be saved
How am I ever gonna be saved, Lord
How am I ever gonna be saved when I have lived a life depraved
I've worshiped money, murdered Cain
Used your names sometimes in vain
Worked on Sundays, rocked and rolled
Want it bad enough I stole
She came to me what was next door
It's not like we had met before
Oh tell me what else can I say
How am I ever gonna be saved

How am I ever gonna find peace
How am I ever gonna find peace, Lord
How am I ever gonna find peace
Will it be on a golden street with big parades and pretty girls
Cotton candy colored swirls
Waving fields of Springtime sun that war's been never waged upon
My lover's arms my first release
How am I ever gonna find peace
