    Hold Me in Line A tribute to Lowell George (©2014, Roy Williams) V1 Rock and roll doctor brown puppy eyes Cartoon charisma with a guitar and a slide A fabulous infect-you-us feel the most-est Getcha romance dancin from coast to coast-est Can you hear him singin CH I got to Hold Me in Line gotta Hold Me in Line I’ve used up nearly nine lives I got to Hold Me in Line gotta Hold Me in Line I’ll be in the pink in no time V2 Roll um easy roll right through the night On cocaine and Commodore cocktails with a lime Three sheets to the Santa Ana winds off L.A. Where Neon tomatoes and Hollywood play Can you hear him singin CH I got to Hold Me in Line gotta Hold Me in Line I’ve used up nearly nine lives I got to Hold Me in Line gotta Hold Me in Line I’ll be in the pink in no time BR I’m willin to bet where his Little Feat led him When he was outta sight well he’d be outta his mind So high on the music oh the music And a pocket rocket’s sweet socket pie Listen 1/2 CH - var I got to hold me in sway I love metaphor play I’m so mixed up in a way CH - var I got to Hold Me in Line gotta Hold Me in Line One look at you a man wouldn’t think twice I got to make you mine honey oh you’re lookin so fine I’ll be in the pink in no time Tag You are my reason yeah you are my rhyme I got to hold gotta hold hold I said hold hold hold Hold Me in Line

    HEAVEN'S LOST AND FOUND

                                                         
                                                            

    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

    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 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!
