Robbie Dillon, Robbie Dillon Some call him a saint Some call him a villain Some know him as Robbie Dick But when the chips are down he’s my top pick The lonely streets of NDG Oh how they miss you Robbie D Walkley, Somerled, and Benny Come back to us, Robbie D We’re waiting at the corner store Just to see you just once more We hope you’re not off doing time Come back to the 5 and dime From your early days near Cavendish On the farm you made your wish To rise above your poverty Nothing could keep you from being free Soon you and your friends were running things Stealing hearts and pulling strings About your gang we all did marvel I heard about you all the way to Harvard We never went to Benny Pool We were careful we were no fools Throughout the land your legend rang We all feared the Benny gang Never met you til I was 30 In that famous bar so dirty On the Main just below Pine We both worked for Vice at the time You were mad at the editor And to me you were like a predator Asking if it could be true That he attributed his words to you Your anger made it hard to think But still we talked it out over drinks I think eventually you quit It was for the best, that little shit After that we crossed paths some Around you I always felt kinda dumb Your wit, your mind, and your sarcasm Bordering on iconoclasm But always you supported me Even when madness contorted me So from those days until the end I’m blessed to have you as a friend Robbie’s gone from NDG But still lives on in memory Gentleman, philosopher, dream of girls Smartest crook in the underworld Let us not dwell on your past And how you have what you’ve amassed Instead we walk on your new path Your higher education aftermath The streets here they still call your name But you are playing a different game Now you have a new economy Brandishing your new philosophy But no matter how far away you roam This neighbourhood will always be home You can take the thug out of NDG Come back and see us Robbie D Robbie Dillon, Robbie Dillon Some call him a saint Some call him a villain Some know him as Robbie Dick But when the chips are down he’s my top pick

London Girl 03:29
London Girl That London Girl She’s a wonder girl I wanna plunder her And get under her London Girl Outta this world She’s so fine She blows my mind Hey London Girl Whatcha up to If you were Parliament I’d disrupt ya London Girl You’re the bomb You know you got it Going on London Girl How did you get so Super dope Everybody says so London Girl You have the power So long as you rest And have a shower That London Girl She’s one rare pearl I wanna deep dive In your deep jive London Girl You got me bested Did your parents Have you tested? Oh London Girl Oh London Lady With you I never Will be shady London Girl I speak the truth To me you are my Fountain of Youth London Girl You are my muse You got me so Beautifully confused London Girl And two-headed dolphins Your words set fire To my endorphins Not from the London You’re thinking of No Buckingham Palace Releasing doves But nonetheless She is my Queen Sweetest majesty I ever seen The sovereign of Ontario The only reason I would go To be with her I’d be delighted To be on one knee And by her knighted London Girl Straight hair no curls Dancing and whirling Your flag unfurling London Girl I salute you I only wish I could uproot you London Girl Oh London Girl Mistress of The Underworld London GIrl Oh London Woman I swear to God You’re superhuman

Sweet Chastity She’s blastin’ me I want Chastity To be the last thing that I see Before I sleep Sweet Chastity I’m not trying to be Some kind of creep So bear with me Sweet Chastity She’s always outlasting me I am forecasting she’s The everlasting key Don’t really know you well indeed Just from the pictures in my feed They really are just so damn good Wish you lived in my neighbourhood The things you share are really cool And you never suffer fools Sweet Chastity, sweet Chastity So full of vitality Chastity One tough Chevy You can preach and I’ll believe Let me get down on my knees Chastity You are so pretty Anyone with eyes can see Your light that shines so heavenly Chasity Sweet Chastity You don’t use An apostophe I know you make it look easy But there’s more to it, Chasity I know you live with pain and hurt I think you’re an outgoing introvert You got style and you got sass You got grace and you got class You’re no Disney princess waiting You’re an engine accelerating Oh Chastity this one’s for you From someone you have inspired More power to you in all you do I just love the way you’re wired You got brains you got it all And that je ne sais quoi Let’s paint the town and have a ball Let’s break all the laws Honestly Would you and me Really be A Catastrophe Chastity You’re spellcastin’ me Can’t you see You’re the bee’s kness I wanna be a leaf in Your soul tree Sweet Chastity Sweet Chastity Deliver me your Sweet relief Chastity Be all that you can be I wanna know your Philosophy Chasity I think you’re sweet Chastity Oh your mastery Of grace and style are passed to me Chastity, Sweet Chastity I hope some day We finally meet She’s blastin’ me I want Chastity To be the last thing that I see

Yukie 03:35
I got a pen pal in Japan I write to her whenever I can She’s a mama and a daughter Write her more I really ought to She has a heart big as a tower She has a quiet inner power One day we will go watch Kabuki Me and my Yukie Onuki She has the most discerning eye Sometimes I really have to try To work hard to get her approval Or risk temporary removal But she usually forgives I ask her please live and let live Yukie Onuki my friend in the East For her my love has not decreased Yukie’s loved and Yukie’s lost Yukie knows of love’s true cost Yukie’s strong and responsible For her nothing is impossible Some things I say she won’t put up with Nonetheless her I have fun with One day I’ll fly across the sea And get to meet Yukie Onuki We may have a language barrier But I’d name an aircraft carrier after her We met through a mutual friend My mate in jolly old England I did a little dance of glee The first time that she messaged me Yukie Onuki what a name She should be in the Hall of Fame あなたもあまりにもよく分からない しかし、あなたは本当に私の鐘を鳴らす。 私の朝食と就寝時間 私たちの対応が輝いています。 毎日あなたについて考えてみてください。 私が言うときあなたが気にしないことを願っています: 私はあなたの上に自分自身を保持することはありません。 大内幸恵私は本当にあなたを愛しています。

They’re mugging us, slugging us, Spying on and drugging us It’s in the food, it’s in the water It’s in your sons and in your daughters It’s in our veins, it’s in our brains Binding us with invisible chains You call this freedom, I call it madness The whole thing fills me up with sadness Pyramid scheme it’s what I’m meaning From the top to the bottom I know I’m not dreaming Insidious long term plot to rule Your being controlled before you even hit school Pyramid scheme we’re so demeaned Non stop brainwashing on every screen What can we do oh what can we do To free the many from the few Bridges burnt no turning back Every hour a new attack In the war for your very soul International mind control Poor fight poor just over scraps Never mind the affluence gap How can oh so very few Put the screws to me and you Pyramid scheme we’re really screwed You’re blind if you can’t see the truth That military doesn’t protect you It protects the mighty masters from you Pyramid scheme it’s been so long This is not the first nor the last song Controls you with your anxieties Hiding behind secret societies All the gold at the top of the ladder Down below we’re just getting sadder While the masters are getting fatter Time has come for our numbers to matter If we could just band together Flock just like birds of a feather Stop looking around seeing only others And realize we are sisters and brothers United planet family Human being amity Stopping this calamity Averting the catastrophe Every human truly free No hunger no poverty Sharing the bounty equally This is my dream one day to see

What the Heck, Jodie Beck? What the heck, Jodie Beck? What the heck? What the heck? Good and evil are neck and neck Check one two, check check check What the heck, Jodie Beck? What the freakin’ freakin’ heck? I got on my turtleneck Let’s you and me hit the discotheque You have travelled you have roamed I’m glad you call my city your home Our encounters may be spaced out But you will never be phased out You can translate Japanese You like salad you like cheese You will meet me anywhere You I love and for you I care Jodie Beck you are a wonder, you If I were I pirate I would plunder you If you were a flag I would salute you If I were a pimp I’d never prostitute you But you’re not any of those things You’re the girl of whom I sing You’re a girl who knows her stuff And for me that’s good enough We may never share a burger But let’s talk about Blackie, Alberta Our parents they did some time there Maybe we are cousins dear Cause you know in those small towns People really got around I think of you as my relation I hope this gets on all the stations Jodie Beck, oh Jodie Beck, Tell me I am not a wreck Tell me I’ve been good to you I try so hard, I really do You have been so good to me Couldn’t ask for better company I only hope I’ve done you right All the day and all the night

Rise and shine It will be fine Tonight you’re mine To wine and dine Just last the day Make your way Hear what I say Together we lay Rise and shine The new day is fine Must keep on trying Not to be lying To tell the truth To lead the youth The pain we must soothe To not be uncouth Morning has risen And the day waits Are you in prison Behind the gates No lock can stop you No guard no rifle No wall can block you Nothing can stifle Every hour Every minute Is within your power You know you can win it Every second every hour All of the time You know you will reckon Committing no crime The future beckons It’s not a race Nor a test of strength Go at your own pace Go for your own length What’s not done today Will be done tomorrow Time now to play And forget all our sorrows We have been patient Doing what we must Our motivation Is doing what’s just So we can come together At the end of our shift Together whatever Our bond is a gift So many realities So many perceptions Not many guarantees Of no misconceptions The odds that we’d join up Are two in 7 billion We’re just two lost grown ups Two helpless civilians We may not be able To fix the whole Earth But here at our table Our love it is worth All of the water In all of the seas Our sons and daughters Will march toward peace

Hosson and on Onwards ho Hosson and on Onwards we go Hosson and on Ever forward Hosson and on Sailing shoreward Hosson and on Oh good Rosemary You’re a piston Should I be wary Because you’re listenin’ You’re at the wheel Your foot on the gas Are you for real You are first class Beautiful Rosemary Beautiful dame Don’t be contrary Don’t be ashamed You got the power You got the gift To reach the top of the tower You give me a lift Rosemary you sly one Rosemary you deep “Rosemary just try one” You sow what you reap You been many places You’ll go many more You’re off to the races Adventures galore Rosemary Rosemary Godspeed to you You can do anything You want to do Rosemary Rosemary Your time is now Rosemary Rosemary You’ll make it somehow That which you’re looking for Is already inside you You don’t need nobody To walk beside you To be in your company Is the highest honour Let no one accompany Who lives with dishonour No one can make you More than you are Only you can take you As far as you want Forget the suitors With their conditions They’re all just looters In awkward positions

The Cat’s Ass You’re mutant powers, You’re radiation You’re April showers You’re a radio station You stand for justice Speak the truth I bet you change clothes In an old phone booth Do you have a secret Identity Somebody you secretly Retreat to be I bet you must You can’t be awesome 24/7 It’s not possible You’re The Cat’s Ass You’re a master class You’re the bee’s knees You’re a masterpiece You’re the King’s ring Or something something You’re a time bomb It’s on it’s on You’re Cosby Without the rape You’re democracy Without the red tape You’re flying Like Wonder Woman Invisible jet I’m assuming Cyan, magenta, Yellow and black There is nothing That you lack You’re a rainbow-farting Unicorn Super grooving And airborne Like a virus I wanna catch You’re so desirous You’re my match Light my fire Burn me up A burning pyre You turn me up You’re The Cat’s Ass You’re a master class You’re the bee’s knees You’re a masterpiece You’re the King’s ring Or something something You’re a time bomb It’s on it’s on You’re Cosby Without the rape You’re democracy Without the red tape You’re flying Like Wonder Woman Invisible jet I’m assuming This is the greatest love of all Together in admiration Nothing is above it all No greater sensation Yes you are the one for me And I the one for you We can do anything we’re free But this is what we choose Stand by each other, side by side Through every kind of weather Taking turns in the driver’s side We’re getting there together Haters they is gonna hate And some will call us cheesy But there’s no one I’d rather date You just make it so easy

Hang your pussy on the wall / Let your pussy deck the halls / This is a job that's pretty cushy / Deciding where to put your pussy Pussy here and pussy there / Pussy whiskers pussy hair / Pussy all across the land / You'll pry my pussy from my cold dead hands Who framed my pussy / Who set pussy up / Who dropped a dime / It's messing me up / Who is the rat / Can anyone tell me / Where my pussy at / Got pussy to sell me Who framed my pussy / Pussy Galore / I got my pussy / At the old pussy store / She was on sale / 50% off / Don't step on her tail / She'll bite your face off My pussy just might be a Persian / I hope and pray you're not allergic / Tell no tales and sink no ships / Keep shut tight those pussy lips Pussy licks and pussy bites / Pussy is so outtasight / Do you want pussy's autograph? / Sometimes pussy gets the shaft If you let your pussy out to play / It may run away some day / Pussies like to make new friends / You may never see your pussy again / But don't let this sad fact get you down / You just have to look around / The more you look, the more you stare / There are pussies everywhere
