Music & Lyrics


“Pinwheel”

CHORUS:
I’m blowing on a pin wheel
I’m blowing as fast as I can

I’m reading every book
every line
advice columns 12 at a time
and some how every day I still fall behind

The toys are just everywhere
diapers and pull ups and oh I swear
I’m drowning in cheerios, pretzels and red wine

CHORUS

I’m filling up your bottle
your starting to walk from a waddle
just when I learned above
a sippy cup
is what follows

I try to count the ABC’s
numbers and I cant believe
butterflies make you cry
want some American cheese?

I’m blowing on a pinwheel
I’m blowing as fast as I can

I put a DVD on to teach you some words
cause all the books we read well its absurd
I still don’t know what your saying
but you give me a hug
a kiss and a wink
you try to do dishes at the kitchen sink
but your really playing

And I m really trying really hard
sleep deprivation is the worst part
one day soon I know you’ll be saying

I’m blowing on a pinwheel
I’m blowing as fast as I can
as fast as I can

“You Are Loved”

You are loved
Yes you are
By every cellular burst of star
Looking down from way up high
Their dust sparkles through you and I
So when you are feeling kind of low
Read your science
And then you’ll know

CHORUS : You are loved (hey hey hey)

So when you are walking down the street
Or doing dishes
Or preparing to feed
The masses or just one
Stop for a moment –and breath in the sun
Cause even if your inside 4 brick walls
Without windows and feeling small
Read your science cause then you’ll know
You really are —never alone

CHORUS : And you are loved (hey hey hey …)

Stardust keeps us warm at night
So sleep tight
Its gonna be alright
Stardust keeps us warm at night
So sleep tight its gonna be alright

You wont get it from the phone
Your PDA you cant leave alone
An email or a skype
A twitter note you just got to write
Nothings bigger than the sky —–
And the stars sparkling at night
Its hard to believe
But your right
Stardust keeps us warm at night ……and you are loved (hey hey hey )

“No More Time”

I wake up and I’m 12 things behind
Before my day has begun
I check my list
I cant resist
Though it seems oblivious

That there’s
no more time
There is
No more time
24 hours a day and only 12
have sunshine

does the baby have everything
does daddy have what he needs
is the sitter happy or is she gonna leave
is there milk in the house
is there money in the bank
did I brush my teeth
where the hell do I rank?

CHORUS : cause there no more time

Sometimes I think that I am losing myself
I had a paint brush and guitar
Now I help you teeth and fart
But then your smile
Makes my
Rats nest for hair
My manicure from last year
My jello belly that’s so in style
At the end of the day
Its all worth while

CHORUS :That there s no more time…
12,9 8 5 4 3 2 and 1 …
a new day has begun ..

“Encourage Each Other”

CHORUS:
Won’t you walk with me
In the new free to be
You and me
Embrace my eccentricity?
Won’t you walk with me
In the new free to be
You and me
Embrace my eccentricity
(Sprinkled with
West world philosophy?)
Walk with me
Walk with me
Run with me
Be joyous and free
Excuse me I’ve got to leave
And go to my speech
And O.T. therapy
I know it feels like
They’re playing games
But really they’re just
Expanding my brain
So if you please…
CHORUS
Will there be another
Pinball Wizard
Another Johnny Depp
Teaming with another Tim Burton
Or a Dave’s Stupid Pet Tricks?
Will there be another Mozart,
Picasso or a Wright brothers?
Will there be another trend that
Encourages each other?
Excuse me I’ve got to leave
And go with my
S.E.I.T. please
Am I disturbing you?
I know it feels
Like I’m not the same
Well none of you were
And you were interesting
Becoming leaders
And artists, inventors
It’s true
Won’t you walk with me
In my new free to be
You and me
Embrace our eccentricity?
Won’t you walk with me
In my new free to be
You and me
Hey we’re the future
Of everything
Let’s encourage each other

It’s Your Kid

Watch your step
Little boys
Are basically
Their own wind up toys
Watch your step
Little girl
Your mama’s a sports star
And you want
Bows to twirl
Watch your step
Mom and dad
The three foot kid
Is moving fast
On the earth’s axis
CHORUS:
Spinning
Super fast
The green is sharper
From the color
Of the grass
It’s like a new 3D
IMAX flick
Except its real
It’s now
And it’s your kid
It’s your kid
Spinning on
The earth’s axis
Watch your step
You’re running fast
You can now
Lock the door
Yeah you’re having a blast
You say
“I don’t need your help”
But you’re 3’ 4”
You don’t even
Wear a belt
Somewhere between
A toddler and man
The calendar is stuck and
See-saw balance
Protecting your butt
And letting you soar
The earth’s axis
CHORUS
Spinning on
The earth’s axis…

“Mommy’s Gotta Hop In the Shower”

Mommy’s got to hop in the shower
She’s got to work for hours
All the moneys being spent
And we need some to pay the rent

The holidays will be here soon
You’ll need a desk for your room
School books and art supplies
A new coat and that is why…

Mommy’s got to hop in the shower
Shes got to work for hours
All the moneys being spent
And we need some to pay the rent

CHORUS :
LOVE I HAVE TO GO
Its 8 hours in a row I know
But soon I ‘ll be back home
My love
My love

I promise I’ll be back home soon
Tuck you in
Reading good night moon
Eat a meal sometime today
Play a game
Or just to say

You are my number one
I do this so you can have some fun
But fun costs cash
Its just the way of life
But I love you
So we sacrifice

CHORUS
LOVE I HAVE TO Go
Its 8 hours in a row
I know
But soon Ill be back home
My love
I have to go

It’s My Turn It’s Your Turn

I got a monkey bar
With my name on it
And a round tire to boot
I know they tell me
To share but
It’s so hard to do
I got a bucket full of sand
And water
That’s my thing too
I wish this playground
Was all mine
‘Cause sharing’s
So hard to do
CHORUS:
It’s my turn
It’s your turn
Everybody gets to go
I got here a little late
Now you are on my
Favorite place
The metal wheel that goes
Round and round
Maybe if I cry
You won’t
Stand your ground
Suddenly well you see me
And you offer me a shot
I can’t believe
You shared with me
I almost forgot
CHORUS
Sharing ain’t always fun
But when you’re the one
Who wants to take a turn
Suddenly you learn
You get more in return
CHORUS

It’s My Turn It’s Your Turn
I got a monkey bar
With my name on it
And a round tire to boot
I know they tell me
To share but
It’s so hard to do
I got a bucket full of sand
And water
That’s my thing too
I wish this playground
Was all mine
‘Cause sharing’s
So hard to do
CHORUS:
It’s my turn
It’s your turn
Everybody gets to go
I got here a little late
Now you are on my
Favorite place
The metal wheel that goes
Round and round
Maybe if I cry
You won’t
Stand your ground
Suddenly well you see me
And you offer me a shot
I can’t believe
You shared with me
I almost forgot
CHORUS
Sharing ain’t always fun
But when you’re the one
Who wants to take a turn
Suddenly you learn
You get more in return
CHORUS
Mac & Cheese

I want mac and cheese
I want it now
I want pretzels
I want them now
I want yogurt and
Cottage cheese please
I want mac & cheese
I want it now
I’ll take a hot dog
A burger & fries
Some crackers might make
A sparkle in my eyes
I want what I want
Not what you want
The timing’s terrible
So you try to sing a song
To calm me down
‘Cause a crowd’s looking on
But I don’t care
‘Cause I am flipping out
You think my blood sugar
Might be the issue
You got some drama
Well go get a tissue
I want the tire swing
I want it now
I know there’s
A group waiting
But holy cow
I’ll make them wish that
They had given it to me
In the moment I said
It had better be free
I want a water balloon
I want it now
I want to blow bubbles
I want them now
Everybody has what I want
I need a new diaper
One that is strong

Teacher Teacher

Teacher teacher
What’s a matter?
No breakfast today
I didn’t have any yesterday
Teacher’s gonna love me
More and more
Well I just ain’t hungry
When you tell me I gotta eat
Well I go nuts when you say
I should be sweet
Teacher teacher
What’s a matter?
Well I know today
I sort of shattered
All your hopes
For smooth finger painting
Well let me just tell you
I’m just three
Did you forget
What it’s like to be me?
CHORUS:
There’s a “you”
There’s an “I”
There’s an “us”
There’s a “we”
There’s also “individuality”
Teacher teacher
Whats a matter?
‘Cause in this
Fast paced world
You got all these
Boys and girls
On a fast track that’s
Based on numbers
And not me
And I know
You got a big heart
I really do
How ‘bout a little 1960’s Flavor
Of individuality?
Teacher teacher
What’s a matter?
Twenty years from now
The evolutionary theory
Is gonna flip out
And all today’s children
Will be smarter than
You and I
‘Cause you try to
Box them in
Oh so nice and sweet
The future Mensa charters
Are gonna make
Fun of you and me
CHORUS

This Is The Moment

This is the moment
I’ve been waiting for
This is the line in the grass
I will pass through that door
My thought’s surround me
A silent movie talking star
This is the moment
To show who I am at the core
CHORUS:
Suddenly it feels like
There’s super heros
And butterflies
Lifting me to the sky
But it’s just me
With the volume high
This is the moment
I’ve been waiting for
Feeling the breeze
On my neck
I broke through that door
That was the line in the past
But it ain’t here no more
This is the moment
I am shining from the core
CHORUS
And storm clouds have
Cleared the air
The sun came out and
I am standing here
Turned up all the way
For me you know
It’s a good day

(A Little Bit Of) Crazy Is Good

A little bit of crazy is good
Crazy is good, is good for me
A little bit of insanity
Breeds creativity
And sets us all free
Where would we be without
Mr. Tom Ed and his bright ideas?
And all the NO’s
For Colonel Sanders and Disney
I fear I’d rather hang
With your pumpernickel
Rye toast ways
Than a boring white roll
That’s got nothing to say
CHORUS
One idea
One daring thought
One follow through
Without insecurity
Getting caught
One positive
Whisper in an ear
Sparks momentum
Melting away the fear
A little bit of crazy is good
Is good for me
Where would we be without
Mr. Martin Luther King?
Now Obama’s in the White House
Who would have dreamed
A ship could fly
And land on the moon?
Nothing’s out of reach
What’s stopping you?
CHORUS

The River Hides Your Beauty

The river hides your beauty
The river hides your beauty
The river hides your beauty
The seas are gonna change
The seas are gonna change
The seas are gonna change
Everything needs
To be arranged
The seas are gonna change
Once a month
Oh your daddy knows
Once a month
Oh the river flows
And you get more bees
With sweets
So daddy he’s so nice to me
Oh that river hides beauty
From the depths of your soul
You will rise
From the depths of your soul
You will rise
From the depth of your soul
You will reach your goal
From the depth of your soul
You will rise
In my dreams
I’ll whisper tonight
In my dreams
The secret
You were always right
The river hides a beauty

Rain On Me

Look at the clock
On the wall
Hours and minutes flow
Rushing by
Like big water falls
Now you’re here
And I feel
Like we get to start again
New eyes
With a different pen
CHORUS:
Colors that seem to fade
Now brighter shades
Raining on me
I feel so free
Cotton candy
Marshmallow fantasies
Raining on me
I feel so free
Another day has begun
Going to work
Please understand
Out the door now
I gotta run
I see you there
And I wish
You’ll be home
When I get back
We’ll have some fun
‘Cause it helps me relax
CHORUS
Rain on me
My love

Train On The Track

I’m like a train on a track
And I ain’t going back
Everything’s just
Chugging along
I’m like a train
On the track
With a hiccup and crack
Everything’s just
Chugging along
Chugging along
Ooh chugging…
They say
Life can give you lemons
Or lemonade
A glass half full or cracked
I say too much time
To analyze
‘Cause when you’re done
You’re gonna feel
A little wacked
And I’ve been on a train
To Georgia
And a car to New Orleans
The depth of the soul
Rises to the goal
Without ambition
Poisoning the dream
I’m like
CHORUS
Behind curtain #1
Is curtain #3
It’s all just part
Of the tease
I gotta follow my path
All kiss ass aside
Well I don’t aim to please
Except for me myself and I
And my friends who believe
In love that’s unconditional
No “ifs, ands or buts”
In between
CHORUS

The News

I watched the six o’clock news
I heard everything that you said
You said “everyone on this program
Well, they’re all gonna be XXX”
I can’t believe my ears or eyes
Why do I even put it on?
It’s not like it’s gonna
Make me smile
Or inspire some kind of
Happy song
Where did the news go wrong?
Children of the future
Do you get just who you are?
You are more than hope
You’ve got to be the front
And the back door
And I have got to trust
That you will stop
All of this insanity
Who decided one day
Death and violence
Would set us all free?
Where did the news go wrong?
I see thunder and lightening
The dog wagging
Is frightening
Blinders or x-ray vision
We see the same stuff
Then make our decisions
Where did the news go wrong?
It’s so wrong I had to write a song
Where did the news go wrong?
I can’t believe my ears or eyes

Service With A Smile

There’s a pool of water
On my kitchen floor
Could you clean it up?
That’s what I pay you for
There’s a pile of papers
Under the kitchen sink
In the circular file
Garbage it’s called I think
Are these lessons
Lost on me alone?
Pride in your job
Shows the depth
Of your soul
My tub has this black stuff
In between tile pieces
I heard if you scrub it hard
You know it decreases
Hey I save my pennies
So you can help me out
Please don’t make me wish
I did it myself
It’s the only way I can breath
Don’t cause more angst
For me if you please
CHORUS:
Doo do do do do
Doo do do do do
Sing a little melody
Doo do do do do
Doo do do do do
Let your smile be free
Free your mind
From the grind
Service with a smile
I gotta believe
Makes the world
Go around
Don’t be a cashier if you
Don’t like making change
Don’t be a house keeper
If cleaning ain’t your thing
Don’t be a driver
If you like talking on a phone
Don’t be a mortician
If you don’t want to
Work alone
Are these lessons
Lost on me alone?
Pride in your job
Shows the depth
Of your soul
CHORUS

Ballerina

Watch all the years go by
Living life like a child
Woke up late today
Is there a map on my face?
Spaces on the calendar
Fade together in one big blur
CHORUS:
Is this really me?
Is this really you?
Looking back mirror
Mirror on my wall
Felt like yesterday
I was six years old
Feels like I’m pasty and pale
With all these rolls that
Seem to fold
Now I’m scared that I might melt
Peter Pan has left with Tinkerbell
CHORUS
Well I’m sittin’ here
And I’m all alone
And I wish my bed
Well it would grow
Ten feet tall with a magic pea
That would help me fall asleep
And all the ballerinas
They’re all wearing clogs
And they are dancing
To my songs
Dancing to my songs
And all the ballerinas
They’re all wearing clogs
And they are dancing
To my songs
Dancing to my songs
CHORUS
And all the ballerinas
They’re all wearing clogs
And they are dancing
To my songs
Dancing to my songs
Dancing to my songs
