    TOYS When I was a kid I had a ball I had more stuff than I could use from the time I could crawl I'd see the newest toys on TV and boy I wanted them all Teddy bears checker boards puzzles and dice Multi-coloured cubes spinning wheels flying kites If it whistled beeped or buzzed or even better came with lights CH Toys come in every shape and size Toys what I've come to realize If you're young if you're old if you're big if you're small it doesn't matter at all Everybody loves Toys When I was a teen I loved to play I could hit and run and throw and catch and kick every day If I woke up and it was raining Plan B was video games Got a job bought a car I could call mine Learned to play guitar practiced hard every night All my buddies dug our band but even better girls liked us CH Toys come in every shape and size Toys what I've come to realize If you're young if you're old if you're big if you're small it doesn't matter at all Everybody loves Toys Toys Toys Toys Toys make some noise BR We all need to play I mean everyone I think it's safe to say there's no such thing as too much fun CH Now I'm all grown up I know what I need I want more fun fly or ride float or ski It might cost more but it's worth it to me CH 1/2 CH (var.) Toys provide an education Toys an endless fascination If they ever fall apart you gotta fix or replace them CH Everybody loves Toys Everybody loves Toys Toys Toys Everybody loves Toys Toys!

    Heaven’s Lost and Found (© 2011, Roy Williams; Karen Gregory) [A] Albert punches numbers as he fumbles with the phone The coin return is empty but he’s found the twilight zone He wonders why he hears a voice inside the dial tone Whisper something about Heaven’s Lost and Found [A] Albert’s mind has gone away it’s on extended leave He sends out scrambled signals he’s all but lost receive He pays life less attention than his nose gets from his sleeve He doesn’t know he’s in Heaven’s Lost and Found [B] His eyes flicker up then flicker back down He shoots off an opening remark I’m looking for Mars have you seen it around I’d be there by now but it’s dark There’s no people left in its cities or towns Says the man with the garbage bag ark That he carries through Heaven’s Lost and Found [A] - var Some will search for meaning some will search their soul Some will search the scriptures some won’t search at all Albert searches every day for what will see him through He drinks to ease the pain that ruined the man that he once knew [B] - var He wanders alone in a sea of blank faces The man drifting round place to place is A captain whose ship ran aground In a wasteland called Heaven’s Lost and Found TAG He’s just a gypsy in Heaven’s Lost and Found He’s always searching in Heaven’s Lost and Found He hears voices in Heaven’s Lost and Found He doesn’t know he’s in Heaven’s Lost and Found
