A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade Laying everybody low with a love song that he made Finds a streetlight steps out of the shade Says something like you and me babe how about it? Juliet says hey it's Romeo you nearly gimme me a heart attack He's underneath the window she's singing hey la my boyfriend's back You shouldn't come around here singing up at people like that Anyway what you gonna do about it? Juliet the dice were loaded from the start And I bet and you exploded in my heart And I forget I forget the movie song When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong, Juliet? Come up on different streets they both were streets of shame Both dirty both mean yes and the dream was just the same And I dreamed your dream for you and now your dream is real How can you look at me as if I was just another one of your deals? Well you can fall for chains of silver you can fall for chains of gold You can fall for pretty strangers and the promises they hold You promised me everything you promised me thick and thin, yeah Now you just say oh Romeo yeah you know I used to have a scene with him Juliet when we made love you used to cry You said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die There's a place for us you know the movie song When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet? I can't do the talk like they talk on TV And I can't do a love song like the way it's meant to be I can't do everything but I'd do anything for you I can't do anything except be in love with you And all I do is miss you and the way we used to be All I do is keep the beat and bad company All I do is kiss you through the bars of a rhyme Julie I'd do the stars with you any time Juliet when we made love you used to cry You said I love you like the stars above I'll love you till I die There's a place for us you know the movie song When you gonna realize it was just that the time was wrong Juliet? A lovestruck Romeo sings the streets a serenade Laying everybody low with a love song that he made Finds a convenient streetlight steps out of the shade Says something like you and me babe how about it?

There was Parcel Post in the pantry, and UPS in the hall,

COD's to the ceiling, and I just couldn't pay for it all. I got the egg scrambler, with a Seal-a-Meal carrying case, A set of presidential commemorative plates So I could eat my eggs off the President's face, A Minute Mender, and a needle that'll knit or crochet, And an autographed photograph of Rin Tin Tin at Six Flags Over Burbank. I remembered I was dreaming, so I gave a mighty cheer. When I awoke, it was no joke, 'cause all that shit was here. So if you fall asleep with the TV on, let me tell you what to do: Tear the telephone out of the wall unless you want it to happen to you. You'll get the Vegematic, and the Pocket Fisherman too, Illuminated illustrated history of life, And Boxcar Willie with a Ginzu knife, A bamboo steamer, and a smokeless ashtray too And an all expenses paid weekend for three at Six Flags Over Burbank.

Nobody Knows That I'm A Fraud (Grace Petrie)

I don't watch PMQs as often as you might expect I only live-tweet Question Time for comedic effect I've never Virginia Woolf, or any Bertolt Brecht And nobody knows that I'm a fraud It's often been alleged that I'm as hard-left as can be But my idea of "edgy" is an unknown brand of tea And I'm not even veggige, let alone dairy free And nobody knows that I'm a fraud But I'll get up underneath the lights until I feel adored And I'll never tell you anything I think you won't applaud Oh it might not always be the truth, but it will have three chords Nobody knows that I'm a fraud Well dressing how I do I find I often get mistook By graphic novel fans who judge me on the way I look But I just like Batman shirts, I've never read a comic book Nobody knows that I'm a fraud When people call me a musician that makes my palms perspire I took Grade I piano, and I never got no higher If I didn't have this capo then you'd all see I'm a liar Nobody knows that I'm a fraud But I'll get up underneath the lights until I feel adored And I'll never tell you anything I think you won't applaud Oh it might not always be the truth, but it will have three chords Nobody knows that I'm a fraud And some days I get so scared that we're losing And some days I'm just so sure we'll never win And some days I get so knackered from refusing to let that in Well some days life feels like a play that you have not rehearsed But one thing's true of all of us sharing this universe Is we could all be doing better and we could all be doing worse And everyone you know feels like a fraud So come on and get up underneath the lights until you feel adored But never tell them anything you think they won't applaud Oh it might not always be the truth but it will have three chords Nobody knows that I'm a fraud Oh it might not always be the truth but it wil have three chords And I guess I'll take up spoken word when I run out of chords Because nobody knows that I'm a fraud



Free As A River (Alan Fletcher)

Come on my friends, it's time to rise Rise above and stake our claim Stop the fighting with the guns and make 'em understand We all have a right to steer this world to a better fight to be free We can be free, free as a river The sun can shine all through our hearts And all of the children, free as a river Free as a river We mustn't give up the fight Freedom is the truth and our right And all the flowers and the trees will join us on our march And every one of us must not give up the peaceful fight to be... We can be free, free as a river The sun can shine all through our hearts And all of the children, free as a river Free as a river



Body And Soul (Bob Forrest)

I sleep with the TV on So I don't feel so alone This house is an empty wreck It's a perfect match for its perfect guests Inbetween gettin' pizza's delivered And going to the store for beer Well, I sit here any day and night Wondering why I'm here It's like my body and soul Can't take it anymore Please, somebody help me I never wanted help before I didn't cry the day my mama died I don't think I even flinched But I broke down this morning When I saw these two kids kiss Something's running around inside me That I really don't understand Now I know something's gotta change I just don't know if I can It's like my body and soul... It's like my body and soul... I've wanted to kill myself But I always been too scared My life is like sideways rains Swirl around in the air I've been searchin' most of my life For anything to believe in Like God or love or something Any kind of simple solution It's like my body and soul... It's like my body and soul... Please, somebody help me Oh, somebody help me Please, somebody help me



Off-Street Parking (Bob Forrest)

Well, look at you You're walking on down the street And you are finally free But you're crying And look at me Well, I got what I wanted I am free now Not drowning But something feels wrong Something's just terribly wrong I feel horrible I got what I wanted though Well, I can go golfing now Whenever I want I can talk to girls And probably won't And you can stay with your friends Tell them what an asshole I am They already believe that And now I deserve it 'Cause something feels wrong Something's just terribly wrong I feel horrible I got what I wanted though And a house is not a home Even with a view and hardwood floors And all that talking And that not talking Well, a house is not a home When two aren't two They're one and one One and one is nothing One and one is nothing You called to say You wanna come and get your stuff now You just wanna make sure That I am not here Well, I can't believe I can't believe you're being so strong now 'Cause it feels like if I Start crying I'll die Something's just wrong Something's just terribly wrong I feel horrible I got what I wanted though And a house is not a home Even with a view and hardwood floors And all that talking And that not talking Well, a house is not a home When two aren't two They're one and one One and one is nothing One and one is nothing Years from now maybe outside a movie You'll be with somebody new I'll be with somebody too And we'll just say 'Hello'

When how rare the bird, how still the wind!
Em
G
And we still within it sigh and shift and turn, saying,
C
Sleep she comes to steal the ones who
Am
Fill their glass and leave the rest,
Em
Whose teeth get brushed, who eat enough,
G
And who know how to treat their friends.
C
Am
How long this night seems with
Em
G
No sign of a bright dream to guide us toward the day,
Am
G
....to guide us toward the day.

F
Come revenant, come, come ye gentle host.

To my patient hip and across our sleeping coasts.

Let me see the man I love one more time Broken by starvation and poverty While the iron masters sip their wine Young and old together marched for justice But the bayonet and the bullet's what they find "Bread or blood" cried a collier "We've come to far lads to run" But in our Myther town in 1831 They were cut down by the government guns And in the midst of senseless slaughter One soldier wounded in the thigh Who later swore on oath at the trial That Dic Penderyn was not the guy Though he had stood for everything they wanted And rose up with his people on that day It could not have been he that harmed the soldier But some there with a grudge put him away, Said they'd stitch him up one day Despite petitions and cries for mercy All that the facts had to say Neither king nor his parliament would listen Even the judge was turned away Hey Lord Melbourne how did you sleep then With all that evidence in your face Well you shot down 24 so why not hang someone? Got to keep those workers in their place He slowly climbs the steps to the gallows pole The last few moments of a life His eyes survey the crowd of gallant Welsh Looking for his wife, he can't see his wife She says, lift me up oh lift me boys Let me see the one I love Lift me up oh lift me boys Let me see the man I love one more time But louder and longer than the sound of guns Is the memory of what was done You can only trample people down for so long Time will show you have not won And long before all this on a hill in Palestine They strung another up they say was a friend of yours and mine Dying in the place of another one But in the morning comes the sun Lift me up oh lift me now Let me see the one I love Lift me up oh lift me now Let me see the one I love one more time
