Track Name: J-O-B
I found myself single again….
So I got some advice from a pretty close friend
who said, “If you want a life filled with honey and jam…
marry yourself a professional man!”
So I tried... I tried… but mostly, I cried….

‘Cause the optometrist and I didn’t see eye to eye
The neurologist got on my nerves
The dentist, he didn’t have enough pull
And the linguist always had the last word

The accountant I couldn’t count on
The lawyer was always on my case
The surgeon, he just couldn't cut it
And the astronomer – a waste of space

Well...

I don’t need no man with a fancy degree
Too much education’s no good for me
I don’t want a doctor with a PhD
Just gimme a man with a J-O-B

I want him hot-sweaty, rock-steady, ever-ready when I come home.
I want a beer-chuggin', hog-huggin', motor-lovin' one of my own.

Now the baker – he kneads me
The janitor sweeps me off my feet
The gardener and I really dig each other
And the butcher I’m dyin' to meat….

Well...

I don’t need no man with a fancy degree
Too much education’s no good for me
I don’t want a doctor with a PhD
Just gimme a man with a J-O-B

Rock it boys...

(BREAK)

I want him hot-sweaty, rock-steady, ever-ready when I come home.
I want a beer-chuggin', hog-huggin', motor-lovin' one of my own.


I don’t need no man with a fancy degree
Too much education’s no good for me
I don’t want a doctor with a PhD
Just gimme a man with a J-O-B
Just gimme a man with a
J-O-B
Track Name: Let's Make a Baby Tonight
You’re wastin time, don’t waste mine
We gotta do this for all mankind
Clock is tickin on, gotta pass the baton down the line
Mister please don’t hesitate, let’s get it on and populate
Let’s make a baby tonight

You look real fine, you look real cool
How’s ‘bout a dip in the ol’ gene pool
We'll mix nurture and nature, set this whole world right
Hey Mister President, here comes another resident
Let’s make a baby tonight

Come over here, I’ll show you how it’s done
We’ll merge our urge till the early morning sun
Hurry up, you’ll miss all the fun
Let’s make a baby tonight

Feel the love, it’s going strong
6 billion people can’t be wrong
There are parties round town, cigars going round
Wanna light?
Hey Mister Census taker, here comes another merry maker
Making babies tonight

Come over here, I’ll show you how it’s done
We’ll merge our urge till the early morning sun
Hurry up, you’ll miss all the fun
Let’s make a baby tonight

Set your clock, I’ll set mine
We’ll count our blessings in nine months time
A precious little bundle, next time we toss and tumble
Hold on tight
Mister please come make my day, let’s share a little DNA
Let’s make a baby tonight
Mister please come make my day, let’s share a little DNA
Let’s make a baby tonight
Track Name: Big Fat Tummy
I’m suddenly attracted to men I never looked at twice
Thinnin’ hair and thicker waists are startin’ to look rather nice
There’s nothin’ wrong with my psychology, there ain’t nothin’ wrong with my eyes
And I make no apology that time has turned me wise

He’s got a big fat tummy and a heart a mile wide
A big fat tummy and a whole lot of love inside
He’s got enormous shoulders to lean on
Hands strong and tender to match
He’s got a big fat tummy and I got me one helluva catch

I’m definitely distracted by men with bulging thighs
Muscles all over the place and deep blue piercing eyes
But I’ve learned from past experiences not to go for the wrong kinda guys
I’m reachin’ past appearances and comin’ up holding the prize

He’s got a big fat tummy and a heart a mile wide
A big fat tummy and a whole lot of love inside
He’s got enormous shoulders to lean on
Hands strong and tender to match
He’s got a big fat tummy and I got me one helluva catch

I ain’t chasin’ rainbows, he ain’t running away
Not a day goes by I don’t appreciate ..

His big fat tummy and a heart a mile wide
A big fat tummy and a whole lot of love inside
He’s got enormous shoulders to lean on
Hands strong and tender to match
He’s got a big fat tummy and I got me one helluva catch
And I got me one hell... one helluva catch
Track Name: Say it, Don't Spray it
Say...(ooo) Spray... (ooh la la ooh la la la)

Say it, don’t spray it (ooh la la)
Don’t spit when you talk
Say it, don’t spray it (ooh la la)
Or I’ll just turn and walk away

Stay dry, stay cool
Show me your love, not your drool
And when I’m in your arms again
Give me the passion, not the rain

Say it, don’t spray it (ooh la la)
Don’t spit when you talk
Say it, don’t spray it (ooh la la)
Or I’ll just turn and walk away

I feel your beauty, I feel your strength
I wanna feel you at arms length
It’s not that I can’t commit
It’s just that I can’t take the spit

Say it, don’t spray it (ooh la la)
Don’t spit when you talk
Say it , don’t spray it (ooh la la)
Or I’ll just turn and walk away

Promise me darling, next time we’re together
You give me the news, not the weather

Say it, don’t spray it (ooh la la)
Don’t spit when you talk
Say it , don’t spray it (ooh la la)
Or I’ll just turn and walk away

Say it, don’t spray it (ooh la la)
Don’t spit when you talk (talky, talky talk)
Say it , don’t spray it (ooh la la)
Or I’ll just turn and walk away

Say it, Say it , Say it , Say it, Say it, Say it, Say it, Say it
Don't Spray it, Spray it, Spray it ,Spray it ,Spray it, Spray it.
Track Name: Gizmo
Man loves to fidget with his special little widget
He loves to fiddle and twiddle with the riddle in the middle
He’s got to tweak it, got to geek it, gotta sticky beak it
If machine were a language, he would surely speak it
Girl the truth is sad, but so
It’s hard to come between a man and his gizmo

He hate distraction when he’s into his contraption
He don’t lose focus when he’s doing hocus pocus
He must dissect, inspect and resurrect it
He’s the one and only with the power to connect it
Girl, these steps you oughta know
If you want to come between a man and his gizmo

Step 1: Turn your sassy on
Step 2: Let it purr and hum
Step 3: Move in nice and easy
Step 4: Shake it more, show him what’s in store
Step 5: Take his toolbox key
Step 6: A little hide and seek
Step 7: Tell him he’s great
Step 8: Skip to 10 ...do it over again

Girl you gotta work it, overload his circuit
You gotta flaunt him and taunt him, let him know you want him
You must be wise, surprise, immobilize him
He’ll be putty in your hands if you can hypnotize him
Girl, these steps you oughta know
If you want to come between a man and his gizmo

Step 1: Turn your sassy on
Step 2: Let it purr and hum
Step 3: Move in nice and easy
Step 4: Shake it more, show him what’s in store
Step 5: Take his toolbox key
Step 6: A little hide and seek
Step 7: Tell him he’s great
Step 8: Skip to 10 ...do it over again

Girl you got him by the machismo
When you come between a man and his gizmo.
Gizmo, gizmo, gizmo.
Track Name: Just Dance
We’re always running around, going so fast
Chasing our dreams, escaping the past
If we don’t run out of time, we’ll surely run out of gas
We gotta STOP ... put the world on hold

Hold me baby and take it real slow…and c’mon baby….

Just dance
Put your two hips in front of mine
Move your legs now one at a time
C’mon baby just dance …..whoa whoa

Just dance
Put your heart right next to mine
Let our two hearts beat in time
C’mon baby just dance

The world revolves, but not around us

If we take a little breather, we won’t miss much
I can’t help but wonder if we still got the touch
We gotta STOP… put the world on hold... and c’mon baby…

Just dance
Put your two hips in front of mine
Move your legs now one at a time
C’mon baby just dance …..whoa whoa

Just dance
Put your heart right next to mine
Let our two hearts beat in time
C’mon baby just dance

Just for a moment….feel
Just for a moment….trust
Just for a moment let’s give it all to chance
Just for a moment….

Dance
Put your two hips in front of mine
Move your legs now one at a time
C’mon baby just dance …..whoa whoa

Just dance
Put your heart right next to mine
Let our two hearts beat in time
C’mon baby just dance

Don’t talk, don’t think, don’t do anything….
Just dance, just kiss, just love,
Baby just dance, just kiss, just love
Baby just dance, just kiss, just love
Baby just dance
Track Name: Blues Rodeo
They asked me to play in a rock 'n roll band
I tried to resist for as long as I could
But I can’t…

I was lured by the bass line, seduced by the lead
Wrapped in the rhythm, held captive by the beat
There’s no goin' back, no lettin' go
When you’re riding in the blues rodeo

Hello cowboy, hold that guitar real tight
Play from your heart like you’re playing for your life
You’re not holdin' back, you ain’t lettin' go
You’re just riding in the blues rodeo

I’m saying bye to my old life to all the craziness I know
I’m runnin' from the circus to ride in the blues rodeo

Say there cowboy can I straddle your song?
Nothing can throw me I just wannna to play along
I ain’t lookin' back, I’m goin' where you go
Just wanna ride with you baby
Let me ride with you baby
Wanna ride with you baby in the blues rodeo
...in the blues rodeo
Track Name: Glory Us
I lay myself down beneath the altar, Open to this new divinity
Never have I held so much splendor, I never felt an angel close to me
I breathe in the warmth of our wonder, exalt in the sweet epiphany
Knowing everything on earth is glorious when you’ve something wondrous to believe

Glory, glory, kiss me in the glory of our love
Glory, glory, love me
Glory you, glory me, glory us

Glory, glory, kiss me in the glory of our love
Glory, glory, love me
Glory you, glory me, glory us

By the grace I love I give my soul to you
Let the hands of time lead us along the way
But now I revel in the things we do to make miracles everyday

Take these arms and lead me to the water, we’ll sanctify our holy unity
Take these words from my lips as gospel, our love will last eternally

With a twist of faith we found a higher heaven
Right within our reach it’s no surprise
Wanna linger little longer here with you
And bless the world I see through you’re eyes

Glory, glory, kiss me in the glory of our love
Glory, glory, love me
Glory you, glory me,glory us

Glory, glory, kiss me in the glory of our love
Glory, glory, love me
Glory you, glory me, glory us
Glory you… glory me…glory us
Track Name: Big Joe
I was sittin' on the back porch on a steamy summer night
I was eatin' fried chicken when along comes this guy
He was crusin’ on a cycle with his name on the plates
He had wrap-around sunglasses and a scar upon his face

Big Joe, what are you about
Big Joe, I got to find out
Big Joe uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Wherever you’re goin', I wanna go

He kept tossin' out these papers as he cruised around the block
Each time he pulled a wheely I thought my heart would stop
Then he slammed onto the brake, skid unto my lawn
And I thought goodness gracious, he’s coming on strong

Big Joe, what are you about
Big Joe, I got to find out
Big Joe uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Wherever you’re goin', I wanna go

I been waiting all of my life for a man on a big white horse to ride by
Now he’s here on his two hot wheels and I’m going to find out how heaven feels…

Then he started coming to me with a walk just like John Wayne
He had a sneer so mean he put poor Elvis to shame
Then he threw this piece of paper down at my feet and before I knew what hit me he was down upon his knees

Would you like a pizza mama with extra cheddar cheese
At Big Joe’s Pizzeria uh, uh, we aim to please
You can have it with anchovies or spicy till it hurts and if you really want it
I can give you the works… ow…

Then I lifted up my skirt, grabbed it in one hand
Threw one leg around the bike, one are around my man
With our hair to the wind, our face to the sun
Before too long, we were long gone

Big Joe, what are you about
Big Joe, I got to find out
Big Joe uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Wherever you’re goin', I wanna go

I been waiting all of my life for a man on a big white horse to ride by
Now he’s here on his two hot wheels and I’m going to find out how heaven feels…

Big Joe, what are you about
Big Joe, I got to find out
Big Joe uh, uh, uh, uh, uh
Wherever you’re goin', I wanna go

Mmmm, love those pepperoni’s
Extra cheese please
Spicy, finger lickin’ good
Track Name: The Lady Don't Cuss
You can break my heart
I can break a nail
I can break the law
Spend the night in jail
My life can tumble
Go from bad to worse
But I’m a lady and I swear
The lady don’t curse

Let the banker take my house
Let the devil take my soul
Let time do a number on me
Let it take it’s toll

I might pick a fight
Kick up a fuss
But I’m a lady and I swear
The lady don’t cuss

And when I have the need to blow off a little steam
I dip into the comfort words of some fancy French cuisine
Mix the altogether, let out a scream:
“Oh sherbert! Fudge it!
I’m so sweet it’s obscene

I might pick a fight
Kick up a fuss
But I’m a lady and I swear
The lady don’t cuss

BREAK

I might pick a fight
Kick up a fuss
But I’m a lady and I swear
The lady don’t cuss

I’m a lady and I swear… the lady don’t cuss.
Track Name: His Body
My man could be the next Picasso
I really really think so
I think you’d think so too

Beneath every stroke of genius, every brush with fame
If you could picture what I picture you’d know why he drives me insane...

Ladi Ladi you should see his body
Not just a piece but the whole enchiladi
Ladi Ladi you should see his body... of work

My man could be the next Mozart
I believe it with all my heart
you’d believe it too

Follow his every movement, every overture he makes
If you could tune to what I attune to you’d know why my soul aches...

Ladi Ladi you should see his body
Not just a piece but the whole enchiladi
Ladi Ladi you should see his body... of work

My man could be the next Shakespeare
I know it is so clear
I know you’d know it too

Beyond every act of kindness, every stage he goes through
If you could play with what I play with you’d know why I’ll always be true...

Ladi Ladi you should see his body
Not just a piece but the whole enchiladi
Ladi Ladi you should see his body... of work
See his body of work
See his body
Track Name: Spinner
Got the heart of a drifter, the soul of a seeker

My days are spent with the flurry of a pen

Seeking the ultimate truth

At the end of the day when the world’s tucked away
The truth 
is we haven’t a clue

Spin, spinner spin

Write me some words I can wrap my troubles in

String them together short and sweet
I'll sing them again and again 
and again
Spin, spinner spin

We are all of us travellers, on sparkling blue water

And our time is spent trying to defend

Who’s got the most fabulous view

When all’s said and done it don’t matter which one,
We’re all 
just passing through


Spin, spinner spin

Write me some words I can wrap these dreams of mine in

String them together short and sweet
I'll sing them again and again and again

Spin, spinner spin

Hey - I can pray in unfamiliar places

Safe - cocooned inside your silken phrases



Spin, spinner spin

Write me some words I can wrap these dreams of mine in

String them together short and sweet
I'll sing them again and again and again

Spin, spinner spin



String them together short and sweet
I'll sing them again and again and again


Spin, spinner spin
Spin, spinner spin
Spin, spinner spin
Track Name: Get Along (little doggies)
As I was listening to some music, early one morning
I got lassoed by the words of an old cowboy song
It's like Woody come grab me, said "Gal, clouds are forming
Got to round the people up and get'm to get along." Singing...

Whoope-ee-ti-yi-o get along little doggies
Nobody's right and nobody's wrong
Whoope-ee-ti-yi-o get along little doggies
Ain't it high-yi time we all got along... get along

Some fellas believe life is for their pleasure
They got blood on their hands and a trail full of bones
But a cowboy will tell you, the trail's full of treasure
If you hop on the saddle and just... get along

Same sky, same stars
Same world, it's all ours
Same moon, same sun
For everyone, for everyone

Whoope-ee-ti-yi-o get along little doggies
Everybody's right and everybody's wrong
Whoope-ee-ti-yi-o get along little doggies
Ain't it high-yi time we all got along

Hold onto your horses, when the road gets too rough
But throw down them holsters, say '"Enough Is Enough!"

Same sky
Whoope-ee-ti-yi-o get along little doggies
Same stars
Nobody's right and nobody's wrong
It's all ours
Whoope-ee-ti-yi-o get along little doggies
It's all ours
We all got to get along

Same moon
Whoope-ee-ti-yi-o get along little doggies
Same sun
Everybody's right and Everybody's wrong
For everyone
Whoope-ee-ti-yi-o get along little doggies
For everyone
We all got to get along

Get along,
get along, get along little doggies
Get along
get along, get along little doggies
Get along
get along, get along little doggies
Ain't it high-yi time we all get along
Track Name: Old School Love
La la la la, la la la la, la la la la - old school love

The way he looks at her, he’s as dreamy as...
Clooney or McQueen on the silver screen
I close my eyes, I’m in the scene

The way he moves with her, he’s as steamy as...
The arch of an eyebrow, his hand on her curves
He pulls her close, I wish I were her....

I want you in tux ‘n tails
I wanna dance in your arms till the clock strikes twelve
I wanna run barefoot, jump in your car
Just like the movies, head for the stars

We’ll find a secluded spot
You’ll twirl me dizzy, we’ll laugh ‘till we drop
You’ll whisper in my ear ‘till it tickles my brain
The music starts to build... the scene starts to fade...

La la la la, la la la la, la la la la - old school love

Isn’t it romantic all that corny old stuff
I just can’t get enough old school love

The way you look at me, you’re as dreamy as...
Sean Connery as Bond, Gable in Gone
Hands down, you win - you’d take either one
The way you move with me, you’re as steamy as...
Your crooked smile, your cheek to mine
All movies end, but we've got time ...

II want you in tux ‘n tails
I wanna dance in your arms till the clock strikes twelve
I wanna run barefoot, jump in your car
Just like the movies, head for the stars

We’ll find a secluded spot
You’ll twirl me dizzy, we’ll laugh ‘till we drop
You’ll whisper in my ear ‘till it tickles my brain
The music starts to build... the scene starts to fade...

La la la la, la la la la, la la la la - old school love

Isn’t it romantic all that corny old stuff
We can never make too much old school love
La la la la, la la la la
We can never make too much old school love.
Track Name: Fool Train
Fool Train, fool train
Missin' the signals on the way to being lost
On a trip to nowhere - always gettin' off

Hear the train puff puffin’, chokin’ on the smoke
Hear the train chug chuggin’, ’guzlin’ it all, till it all get broke

Fool Train, fool train
Missin' the signals on the way to being lost
On a trip to nowhere - always gettin' off

Hear the train toot tootin’, runnin’ lines, makin’ tracks,
Hear the train chew chewin’, takin’ lives it don’t give back

Fool Train, fool train, fool train, fool train
Missin' the signals on the way to being lost
On a trip to nowhere - is time ......
Tear the ticket, blind devotion, get the loco outta locomotion.....
Tear the ticket, blind devotion, get the loco outta locomotion.....
Tear the ticket, blind devotion, get the loco outta emotion.....
Track Name: How Long Is a String?
How long is a string ... that ties two hearts together?
How far from hello to goodbye?
Is there a sign along the road to forever that says 'you've given your best try'?

Like the train slowing down as the whistle blows
The dam that stops the river as she flows
The spirit may be willing but the heart it somehow knows
We've taken it as far as it goes.

How high are the highs when two lives combine?
How low are the nights from too much crying?
Who would've thought there'd ever come a time when we both would give up trying.

Just like the playwright that watches his show close
And the dancer that stumbles on her toes
The dream keeps hoping, but the heart it really knows
We've taken it as far as it goes.

How long is a string ... that ties two hearts together?
How far from hello to goodbye?
Goodbye...
Track Name: Happy Anniversary, Baby
Turn up the moonlight, polish the stars
Everything's got to be right
Turn down the breeze a couple degrees
It's a very special night

Dust off the mem'ries, uncover the dreams
Lay them all neatly right here.
Pull up a smile, in a little while
is my favourite time of the year

Happy Anniversary, baby
Another year closer to you
I respect and adore all we shared before
Now there's forever to look forward to

Pour us a love song, slow down our hearts some
It's always seems to go so fast
But we'll make this night like, we make love right
And we love to make love last

Happy Anniversary, baby
Another year closer to you
I respect and adore all we shared before
Now there's forever to look forward to

On our first, we exchanged paper
On our fifth, we knocked on wood
Our tenth, we sipped our love from a tin cup
On our twenty-fifth we'll toast crystal from a silver tray
And then there's gold and diamonds when we reach forever and a day

Happy Anniversary, baby
Another year closer to you
I respect and adore all we shared before
Now there's forever to look forward to
Happy Anniversary to you
Track Name: Loverbye
Loverbye, softly lie
Please wake me if I weep
In your arms one more night
Won't you rock me to sleep
The willow tree never weeped for me
Till you said you were leaving home
And when the vow breaks, the cradle will fall
And down tumbles love once and for all

Loverbye, sad,sad night
When dreams are no longer sweet
And I find this precious time
I'm counting hours instead of sheep
And when you slip away at the break of day
Kiss the little one before you leave
And shake a dream from his dreamland tree
And if any are left, won't you plant one for me

Loverbye and goodnight

And when you slip away at the break of day
Kiss the little one before you leave
And shake a dream from his dreamland tree
And if any are left, won't you plant one for me
Track Name: Snap! The Chevy ('93)*
Snap! the Chevy becomes a chariot
With 6 black stallions doing a high-step trot
Snap! the Chevy that brings him home to me tonight

Tap! the doorbell is now cathedral chimes
High and lofty to mark these special times
Tap! the doorbell that says he's finally home tonight

Flick! the hall light is now a chandelier
Beams of crystal surround him as he nears
Flick! the hall light that shines his way to me tonight

Click! the radio is a string quartet
Playing soft and low a very private set
Click! the radio when he's in my arms tonight

Zip! my dress is now a black silk gown
Flip! our mattress into a cloud of down
Unzip! my dress when he is loving me tonight

Snap! the Chevy becomes a chariot
With 6 black stallions doing a high-step trot
Snap! the Chevy that brings him home to me tonight

Snap! the Chevy that brings him home to me tonight
Snap! the Chevy, he's coming home to me tonight
Snap! the Chevy that brings him home to me tonight

Ooo wah ooo wah wah
Ooo wah ooo wah wah
Ooo wah ooo wah wah
Ooo wah ooo wah wah....

Snap! the Chevy that brings him home to me tonight
Snap! the Chevy, he's coming home to me tonight
Snap! the Chevy that brings him home to me tonight
