Save the World If you wanna save the girl you gotta save the world If you wanna save the world you got to save yourself If you wanna save yourself you gotta let it all go If you wanna let it all go you gotta let it flow The trouble when the world you save Is it never stays that way There’s always hurt there’s always pain It just gets back in trouble again Danger peril jeopardy Usually it is all three Oh can you save, can you save me The world is asking desperately Day after day time after time Word for word and rhyme for rhyme Dodge the bullets serpentine Won’t you be my saviour mine Won’t you leap a building tall Won’t you get so very small Won’t you catch me when I fall Please oh please just save us all

She's Blue 03:33
Oh what can I do Oh how she’s blue Nothing’s getting through to her Boo hoo hoo hoo Oh how she’s blue Oh what can I do Oh what can I do How do I get through This is not new to her Despite how she’s beautiful And has many suitors her Nothing’s getting through to her This damn isolation These viral sensations The falling of nations She has no more patience Oh how she’s blue Oh what can I do Oh what can Ido How do I get through Oh what can I do Oh how she’s blue Nothing’s getting through to her Boo hoo hoo hoo These feelings are old And they leave her so cold I try to be bolder And march like a soldier Right into the thick of it Oh how she’s sick of it Like needles are sticking in This pain is she picking it She’s blue It’s true Now I’m Blue too She’s blue No lie We try No good She’s blue She’s sad Tell you It’s bad She’s blue She’s done It’s just No fun

The parking lot was crowded and the music loud and raunchy Got wilder by the minute; hell bent on fun and play Suspect I over did it; of that I’m almost certain “Now honey don’t go crazy”, I could almost hear her say My plan for home was simple; just get the front door open Slip in without a sound; 'n give the switch a pass The couch, I tumbled over; the light stand I knocked over Onto our coffee table; I smashed all the glass My memory is hazy of events of that evening My best friend’s stag was something, of that I do recall Strippers were swinging and liquor ever flowing And my love’s words of warning I recall most of all While on the floor I lay morning came a leaping The room spins; my head pounds; my ribs throb a fright As my eyes did focus the new day came a rushing “Oh Sweet Lord please strike me now! I wish I’d died last night.” After a moment I noticed a glass of water A bottle of aspirin and a note addressed to me It said: “I went to the store to re-place all the stuff you’ve broken.” “Hope you feel better soon. Love and kisses, honey bee!” My memory is hazy of events of that evening My best friend’s stag was something, of that I do recall Strippers were swinging and liquor overflowing And my love’s words of warning I recall most of all The Ford pulled in; the truck door slammed; in the house she came I stammered “I’m so sorry” thinking I was dead “I forgave you last night” she smiled then led me to our bedroom Peeled off my trousers and proved that we’re still wed My memory is hazy of events of that evening My best friend’s stag was something, of that I do recall Strippers were swinging and liquor ever flowing And my love’s words of warning I recall most of all My head it did pound but what a small price to pay For the kind of forgiveness I earned that day With love in my arms I dared to ask her “What did I do or say that could make this all okay?” Then she said ... “When you came home last night, a weapon of mass destruction” “My big beautiful husband, passed out on the ground” “Too heavy to move, I didn’t know what to do” “I kicked you in the ribs; you didn’t make a sound” “So as you lay there sleeping, I decided to undress you” “Stripped off your shirt; took off your shoes, but the second I touched your belt” “Your eyes flew wide open and you grabbed my hands and hollered” “Back Off Bitch, I’m Married! And you passed right out again.” My memory is hazy of events of that evening My best friend’s stag was something, of that I do recall Strippers were swinging and liquor ever flowing And my love’s words of warning I recall most of all Strippers were swinging and liquor overflowing And my love’s words of warning I recall most of all
