Things My Mama Said

 

 Verse 1:
Full of hugs and kisses
she never stopped to rest
her smile the umbrella
that made us all feel blessed

She said...

Look before you leap
walk a mile in their shoes
if you give it all you have
you can never lose

Catch more flies with honey
always travel light
find rainbows of color
in skies of black and white

Pre-Chorus:
Years go by so quickly
fade out to the distance
 like ripples on the water
flow to a river bed

Chorus:
Things my mama said
things my mama said
as she tucked me into bed
things my mama said

Verse 2:
Safe in her arms
our house was a home
we all fit together
like words in a poem

Say something nice
or nothing at all
with honor, grace, and kindness
you're always standing tall

Tomorrow will get better
let all the small stuff go
leave a mark on our hearts
like angels in the snow

Pre-Chorus:
Years go by so quickly
fade out to the distance
like ripples on the water
flow to a river bed

Chorus:
 Things my mama said
things my mama said
as she tucked me into bed
things my mama said

Bridge:
 A whisper slowly floating
to memories in the distance
 "Sweet dreams, my darling"
 as she tucked me into bed

Chorus:
 Things my mama said
things my mama said
as she tucked me into bed
things my mama said

Outro:
Things my mama said
things my mama said
things my mama said
things my mama said
things my mama said

It Happened Again Today

 

It happened again today    

The kids escaping outside through the playing fields  

And sobbing parents nightmares suddenly turned all too real  

How I prayed for some solutions if I only knew the way

 

So we never have to say  

it happened again today

 

It happened before about a week or two 

A teacher's quick reactions surely saved some lives

I can't erase the images of the children as they hide

A killer stole their innocence as we watched on the news

 

Why don't we talk to our children and listen to what they say   

They might tell us what we need to know to make this go away

If we can get inside their precious minds  

Somewhere in there we'll surely find             some answers  

 

So we never have to say  

it  happened again today

 

It happened before about a month ago 

The helicopters SWAT teams and the TV crews

People screaming pop pop popping teenage fury letting loose

Treating symptoms but not causes only makes this problem grow

 

We oughta  talk to our children and listen to what they say   

They might tell us what we need to know to make this go away

If we can get inside their precious minds   

Somewhere in there we'll surely find            some answers 

 

So we never have to say 

it happened again today

 

We cannot help our children if there's just too much damn noise  (BR)

There has to be some reason we make killers out of boys

The guns don't shoot the children unless the children shoot the guns

If we want to find out why then we must ask why from our young

 

We've gotta talk to our children and listen to what they say   

They'll tell us what we need to know to make this go away

If we can get inside their precious minds   

Somewhere in there we'll surely find           some answers 

 

So we never have to say  

it happened again today

The Devil Rides A Bike

 

C

The Devil rides a bike, so the legend goes

The screaming noise the engine makes

Is the screams of tortured souls 

The paint’s a coat of blood

The frame is made of bones

Flesh of man makes the seat

 So the legend goes

 

Ri…de   Ri….de 

You can ride with the Devil if you like

 

V

 I heard a sound coming down the street

That made my hair all stand on end

A roaring ball of flame and smoke

Came tearing round the bend

I ducked behind the nearest bush

Tried to hide from that evil beast

He pulled right up beside me and laughed  Ha Ha

He said, on your soul I will feast

 

C

The Devil rides a bike, so the legend goes

The screaming noise the engine makes

Is the screams of tortured souls 

The paint’s a coat of blood

The frame is made of bones

Flesh of man makes the seat

So the legend goes

 

Ri…de   Ri….de 

You can ride with the Devil if you like

                         

V

I looked that Devil straight in the eye

And said you cant have my soul

I've made a pact with the man upstairs

He's the only Lord I know

The Devil stared right back at me

And snarled one day you'll be mine

I laughed and said over my dead body 

He said, that’s what I had in mind

 

Ri…de   Ri….de 

You can ride with the Devil if you like

 

The Devil rides a bike, so the legend goes

The screaming noise the engine makes

Is the screams of tortured souls 

The paint is a coat of blood

The frame is made of bones

Flesh of man makes the seat

So the legend goes

 

Ri…de   Ri….de 

You can ride with the Devil if you like

  

B

I gave him the bird! If you know what I mean

He said my name is was in his book

I said go read it again you fiend 

This time take a proper look

 

He road off in a huff, Ha Ha Ha

No soul for him tonight!

 

C

The Devil rides a bike, so the legend goes

The screaming noise the engine makes

Is the screams of tortured souls 

The paint is a coat of blood

The frame is made of bones

Flesh of man makes the seat

So the legend goes

 

Ri…de   Ri….de 

You can ride with the Devil if you like

  

Ri…de   Ri….de 

You can ride with the Devil if you like

Temptation

 

V1

Have you come straight from Eden

with an apple in your hand?

You tempt me with your bounty

and ask me to understand

 

PC1

Temptation, flirtation, masquerade as sport

Temptation, migration, with whom you will consort

 

V2

 I am bound to no one

but you can’t say the same

You stood before all those you know

and ya’ even took his name

 

PC2

A vacation, from your station, something to explore

A relation, causation, don’t I deserve more?

 

C1

Has fidelity’s time just passed

Are these things really meant to last?

Can two people share a life

When it’s filled with so much strife?

 

V3

 A fleeting night of pleasure

for a lifetime of pain

A foundation built brick by brick

will crumble just the same

 

PC3

Gyration, elation, a temporary high

Migration, damnation a lifetime a lie

 

C2

Has fidelity’s time just passed

Are these things really meant to last?

Can two live as man and wife

 And make it last for their whole life?

 

Repeat V1

 Have you come straight from Eden

with an apple in your hand?

You tempt me with your bounty

and ask me to understand
