Song: “Someone’s Yelling”

 

 

 

Someone’s yelling at someone;
is one of them me?
Someone’s yelling at someone;
is one of them me?
Someone’s yelling at someone;
is one of them me?
Or is one of them
YOU, MOTHERFUCKER,
YOU, MOTHERFUCKER,
YOU!

Song for My Daughter

I will be witness to your foolishness
I will be straight man to your wierdness
I will listen to you singing
and believing that it’s beautiful
and I’ll believe it too

Cuz I believe in your tone of voice
as melody; even I love your noise
And what you say, well I hang on the words
like birds hang in air
like bells ride air too
I’m saying I like how you
ring in my ears

Even while you don’t know what it means
I’ll try to ride inside your dreaming
Cuz in this world where some
dreams don’t come true
I’m always surprised
what’s new in your mind
cuz it’s always cool

I will be sitting on your sidelines
I will be standing in your stands
I might be waiting at the window
with a shotgun in my hands
Anything, understand,
in your darkest night–
to make it right, what I’d do
ain’t limited to
the price of my life
the price of my life

I will be witness to your foolishness
I will be straight man to your wierdness
I will listen to you singing
and believing that it’s beautiful
and I’ll believe it too
cuz I believe in you

(Ain’t Goin Out Like a) Fatted Calf

Fatted calf,
fatted calf:
ain’t goin out like a fatted calf.
Fatted calf,
fatted calf:
ain’t goin out like a fatted calf.

Do the math.
That’s a zero.
I’m doin sit-ups.
I’m head of household.
You can add:
that’s not subtractin’.
We in the bonus,
very thankful.

Fatted calf,
fatted calf:
ain’t goin out like a fatted calf.
Fatted calf,
fatted calf:
ain’t goin out like a fatted calf.

Would I eat
a fatted calf?
I’ll tell you what:
it’s delicious.
Greasy fingers,
smoky lips
around the table,
chef’s wife … smiling.

Fatted calf,
fatted calf:
ain’t goin out like a fatted calf.
Fatted calf,
fatted calf:
ain’t goin out like a fatted calf.

Knees Buckle

Here’s a soul song with a horn section.

Knees Buckle

My knees buckle
every time I hear your name.
My knees buckle
every time I see your face.
The rest of the time they’re strong.
Sing along.

My knees buckle
every time I hear your name.
My knees buckle
every time I see your face.
The rest of the time they’re strong.
Gada gadong.

Say my name
& come on down;
I’ll meet you on the ground.
Say my name
& come on down;
Aw now.
