Un Recognized Genius

 

First saw the problem when I entered grade school

The teachers were stupid  couldn't deal with them fools

My dad was no better he had no use for me

He wrote me right off just a bad waste of seed 

 

Cuz I'm an un---

Recognized genius

Nobody here understands me at all

Un---recognized genius

Talking to them is like talking to walls. 

 

I dropped out of school cuz it took all my time

I can strum a guitar I can make the words rhyme

So I posted on Youtube but I can't get no clicks

Most people are stupid especially the chicks

 

Yeah I'm an un---

recognized genius

Did Van Gogh endure this much pain for his art? 

Un---recognized genius

My gifts go unnoticed that's the real tragic part

 

Now I busk on this corner gotta do what it takes

It can't be much longer til I get my big break

Most of these people they just don't have good taste 

My music's beyond them so it all goes to waste

 

I'm just an un---

Recognized genius

Nobody here knows art from their ass

Un---recognized genius

Truly great talent won't appeal to the masses

 

(spoken-word interlude over instrumental bridge) 

 

Hey you know Taylor Swift?

She heard me playing as she was like walking by one day

And I just like blew her away 

and she asked If we could like collaborate 

and I was like sure if I can play on it too

And then she forgets all about me

And now the Voice singing show they're  begging me,

Begging me, I just, I just don't know 

It's too confining I, I, I was thinking about it but 

I've been burned before man

Hey can you like spare a five?

so I can like step away and grab some food

 

I'm just an un---

Recognized genius

Did Mozart need handouts like me it's a crime! 

Un---recognized genius

Like Einstein I'm lightyears ahead of my time

Happiness …..

 

C

Happiness …..oh happiness

Happiness ……oh happiness

 

V1

A flower blooms

so fair & fine

Stretches up to heaven

beauty sublime

 

Its fragrance pure

as the finest myrrh

Bees buzzing round it

they all concur

 

But just as fall

will follow spring

The bloom will die

and the angels sing

 

C

Happiness …..oh happiness

Happiness ……oh happiness

 

V2

I knew a girl

so fine & fair

The angels smiled

on her gossamer hair

 

Her love for me

was summer’s sky

Closest thing to heaven

I’d ever spy

 

When she left

winter come

Left me froze

alone and numb

 

C

Happiness …..oh happiness

Happiness ……oh happiness

 

V3

All good things

and all good times

Will surely pass

before their primes

 

All that’s born

is sure to die

See it the gleam

of a baby’s eye

 

Happiness

is a state of psychosis

If you pay attention

you already know this

 

C/Outro

Happiness …..oh happiness

Happiness ……oh happiness

 

(repeat)

The Truth Comes Stumbling In

 

The trial was well underway
Each side had been pleading its case
But the Lie had convinced them
And no-one would listen
When the Truth came stumbling in

 

The Lie had convinced them
And no-one would listen
When the Truth came stumbling in

 

The Lie had arrived by Ferrari
The Truth - charact'ristic'ly tardy
The Lie had the show
Wrapped up with a bow
When the Truth fumbled in to the party

 

The Lie had the show
Wrapped up with a bow
When the Truth fumbled in to the party

 

The Lie was as sharp as a dagger
And spoke with a confident swagger
With his mirrors and smoke
The jury was stoked
To believe him ahead of the laggard

 

With his mirrors and smoke
The jury was stoked
They believed him ahead of that laggard

 

The Truth, to the murmurs of laughter
Had facts stacked up to the rafters
She took her sweet time
While she dotted the I's
But the crowd wanted out of there faster

 

Yeah, the crowd wanted out of there faster

....

 

When you sit in your chair in the evenin'
Watching news on your favourite station
Your judgement should wait..
'Cause the Truth will be late..
And you're just going to have to be patient!

 

She's bound to be late
So you'll just have to wait
'til the Truth comes
bumbling
mumbling
tumbling..
The Truth comes stumbling in!

The world of a child

 

(Intro)

Every day's an adventure in a child’s magic world

A special place to go for every boy and girl

See their faces change when they step into their dreams 

 Nothing is ruled out of their wonderful schemes

 

(1)

In the mind of a child,  play's an everyday thing

Depends on whatever imaginings they bring

Grown ups aren't really part of the deal

Kids know we don't see their fantasy's real

 

(2)

They’re chatting away with an invisible friend

Or flying round in games of pretend

The girl is a princess, the boy is a knight, 

And fire breathing dragons are out there to fight 

 

(3)

A cook pot is a fortress, clothes pegs are the folk

Bed sheets are a tent, the bath towel is a cloak

They drive a cardboard box car, or camp in a duvet den

These games are played over, and over and over again.  

 

(Br)

Where fantasy is real as these dreams come true

Waterfall jewels crashing down mountains of hue

Fairies and unicorns play around the next bend 

Treasure's lie hidden at the rainbows end

 

(Finale)

One day they change and leave their teddy bear

They start to wear make up and restyle their hair 

They are growing up but a part of them has died

Gone forever is the magic world of a child

BATTLE OF THE BULGE

 

Verse 1:

I’m twice the man I use to be I swear

But it’s not by getting stronger or wise

Fast food and I are having an affair

And my gut’s become ginormous in size

 

I really should be eating more veggies

Counting calories and watching my weight

The problem is that food holds me hostage

And my hunger is as large as my waist

 

Chorus:

Well I can’t touch my toes

And it hurts when I button my pants

My belt’s on the very last hole

Tyin’ shoes, an Olympic event

Diet is a four letter word

The only thing I refuse to indulge

I surrendered as a pris’ner of war

In my battle of the bulge

 

Verse 2:

The devil brought three boxes of donuts

To a meeting that I just couldn't miss

The big one with the chocolate and peanuts

A temptation that I couldn't resist

 

Thank goodness for my boss who was clumsy

And saved me from committing such sin

As he dumped the whole container of coffee

Saturating all the goodies within

 

Chorus:

Well I can’t touch my toes

And it hurts when I button my pants

My belt’s on the very last hole

Tyin’ shoes, an Olympic event

Diet is a four letter word

The only thing I refuse to indulge

I surrendered as a pris’ner of war

In my battle of the bulge

 

Verse 3:

I'm breaking off the chains of delusion

Gotta fin'lly take control of my fate

It's time I start avoiding excuses

And the food I always pile on my plate

 

God help me 'cause I need a solution

I don't wanna be the man that I am

Determined I will fight for my freedom

So I'll never have to sing it again

A little meadow (Love's in bloom)

 

(Verse 1)

A little meadow out by the sea
I climbed a stone wall to reach it
I've been here many times, just me
To bask in the quiet. 
And I always wondered
Would anyone else see
The beauty of this place
Share it with me.

 

(Verse 2)

A little meadow out by the sea
You swam through the waves to reach it
You picked a wild strawberry
Invited me to try it.
Yes, I'd always wondered
Would anyone else see
The beauty of this place
Share it with me.

 

(Bridge)

And the clouds drifted by on a glorious day
We warmed our hearts in the sun's bright rays
Laughing as wood pigeons cooed from their trees
As you wrapped your arms around me.

 

(Chorus)

The sun comes out
And love's in bloom
Flowers sway
Pretty like you,
Yeah, the sun comes out
And love's in bloom
Love's. In. Bloom....

 

(Verse 3)
A little meadow out by the sea
We made our own way to reach it
We keep coming back, just you and me
To enjoy the silence.
And I always wondered
Would anyone else see
I'm glad you found this place
And share it with me.

 

(Chorus)

The sun comes out
And love's in bloom
Flowers sway
Pretty like you,
Yeah, the sun comes out
And love's in bloom
Love's. In. Bloom....

A little meadow (Love's in bloom)

A little meadow (Love's in bloom)
A little meadow (Love's in bloom)
Little meadow (Love's in bloom) ..

Three Wishes

 

[Intro]

All my hoes is bitches

Each of ’em is vicious

And if I had three wishes

I’d send ’em all away

And make ’em unpack

Then I’d bring ’em back

And then I’d send ’em all away for good

 

V1

There’s one with skin

Like cinnamon

An eagle-eyed Glock firer

The Mafia could hire her

Her tongue can cut like diamonds

And just like Simple Simon

She asked to taste my wares

But she don’t really care

She ridicule my rhymin’

 

[Hook]

All my hoes is bitches

Each of ’em is vicious

And if I had three wishes

I’d send ’em all away

And make ’em unpack

Then I’d bring ’em back

And then I’d send ’em all away for good

 

Three wishes

(3X)

 

V2

Another’s bold

She call me cold

Right in the heat of passion

So I gave up on action

An ace nunchuck instructor

And peace of mind abductor

She press me for new clothes

I paid for her new nose

I’m just a chip to cash in

 

[Hook]

All my hoes is bitches

Each of ’em is vicious

And if I had three wishes

I’d send ’em all away

And make ’em unpack

Then I’d bring ’em back

And then I’d send ’em all away for good

 

Three wishes

(3X)

 

V3

The third one’s rude

She’ll diss my crew

Right to their very faces

A black belt in karate

She ninja but not naughty

I take her to nice places

Too stuck up not to frown

She always lookin’ down

She call my flow disgraceful

 

[Hook]

All my hoes is bitches

Each of ’em is vicious

And if I had three wishes

I’d send ’em all away

And make ’em unpack

Then I’d bring ’em back

And then I’d send ’em all away for good

 

Three wishes

(3X)

 

[Bridge]

They moths to a flame

All drawn by my fame

I’m thoroughbred, yeah, Preakness

But damn I got a weakness

For straight up bad kitties

I think I’m finessin’

But they just be messin’

With my mind

I want them gone

They cause so much distress

But I let them hang on

I let them hang on

Yeah, I let them hang on

Cuz they scare me half to death

 

[Hook]

All my hoes is bitches

Each of ’em is vicious

And if I had three wishes

I’d send ’em all away

And make ’em unpack

Then I’d bring ’em back

And then I’d send ’em all away for good

 

Three wishes

(Repeat to fade out)

Gypsy Heart

 

v1

Woman, sweet woman, with hair of gentle wave

Soft and a’ flowing, a crimson cascade

The ring on your finger, place it on the shelf

Woman, sweet woman, tell no one else

 

v2

Woman, sweet woman, your scent is honeysweet

What madness beckons to this outlaw’s keep?

My pockets full of silver, my likeness on a page

I left two men a’ lying, I sacked the payroll stage

 

ch

Gypsy heart--- restless as a child

Reckless and wild---like crazy love

Reckless and wild---like a stranger's touch

I can feel your racing pulse

In the shadows of the moonlight

Your gypsy heart will always beat in you

   

v3

My tall winsome rider with eyes of emerald green

Tell me where you’re going, whisper to me

This gold on my finger, I’ve done as you have said

Lay here warm beside me, share this feather bed

 

ch

Gypsy heart--- restless as a child. . .

 

v4

Woman, sweet woman, come morning I’ll be on

Steal home to your husband, kind comfort be gone

The dawn will soon be rising, at first hint of day

I ride for the horizon, far, far away

 

v5

Let tomorrow find us where river winds through hill

Love is a blindness, fell stricken who it will

Go saddle up your stud, I will follow on my bay    

We’ll ride for the mountains, far, far away

 

ch

Gypsy heart--- restless as a child

Reckless and wild---like crazy love

Reckless and wild---like a stranger's touch

I can feel your racing pulse

In the shadows of the moonlight

Your gypsy heart will always beat in you

WAITING ON YOU BLUES

Duet (key: male part = regular font; female part = italics; together = bold)

 

Ch1:

I've been waiting on you (4x)

 

V1:

Seems like I always wait on you                                    

My patience is wearing thru for you, oh you                            

Waiting on your help, to go somewhere                                

To get off the phone, to fix your hair, oh you, oh you

 

Ch2:

I've been waiting on you (4x)

 

V2:
Seems like I always wait on you                                    

My patience is wearing thru for you, oh you                            

Making your dinner, folding your clothes                            

Your on the couch, watchin' your shows, oh you, oh you

 

{Interlude}

 

V3

Seems like I always wait on you                                  

But then I think, why sit and stew?, its you, oh you                          

The truth's I'll wait on you all day                                  

To see you smile and walk my way anew, oh you

 

V4

And though you sometimes rile me dear       

I want you close, I need you near, oh you, yes you        

Waitin on each other, its part of our glue                             

That's why I'll always wait on you, oh you, oh you

 

Ch3:

We were waiting on each other (I will always wait on you)                    

There's no waiting for another (I will always wait on you)                    

Without you I would be blue                                   

I will always wait on you, oh you

The Rain

 

The darkness has stayed for such a long time

The truest of friends have given up on me

The darkness steals all your hopes away

Will I ever rise, off this wounded knee

 

I thought that I was strong enough

To go against the grain

I thought that I was healed enough

But I’m not ready for the rain….

 

The weight of the world crushes my mind

That’s where the only hope I have is within

Will this time be the last time for me

Can I crawl out from underneath again

 

I thought that I was strong enough

To go against the grain

I thought that I was healed enough

But I’m not ready for the rain….

 

The night time lives on endlessly

Clouds gather around my guilt

The odds get worse by the day

How can I climb the walls I’ve built

 

I thought that I was strong enough

To go against the grain

I thought that I was healed enough

But I’m not ready for the rain….
