Time Ain't on My Side

Ti-i-i-ime ain't on my side--no it ain't
Ti-i-i-ime ain't on my side-- no it ain't
Ti-i-i-i-ime oh precious time
Precious time where have you gone

Soon I will fly
Out past Venus and Mars
Out to my place
Among the stars

There I will shine
With my eternal light
For all of the lovers
Who look up at night

Ti-i-i-ime ain't on my side--no it ain't
Ti-i-i-ime ain't on my side-- no it ain't
Ti-i-i-i-ime oh precious time
Precious time where have you gone

There I will be
With old lovers long gone
And with old friends
We will never more roam

There we will shine
Through the ages at night
Beaming down love
With our eternal light

Ti-i-i-ime ain't on my side--no it ain't
Ti-i-i-ime ain't on my side-- no it ain't
Ti-i-i-i-ime oh precious time
Precious time where have you gone

Soon I will fly
Out past Venus and Mars
Out to my place
Among the stars

There I will shine
With my eternal light
For all of the lovers
Who look up at night

Ti-i-i-ime ain't on my side--no it ain't
Ti-i-i-ime ain't on my side-- no it ain't
Ti-i-i-i-ime oh precious time
Precious time where have you gone

Love's Seasons

Love is a fleeting thing I know
Though people say it tends to grow
It has its seasons like
Flowers in the field

They blossom out in warm spring rains
And grow in summer's sunny plains
But as the summer ends
They start to fade

So love will have its seasons too
Its times when all is sweet and new
But like the summer flowers
It too will fade

And love will come and love will go
This thing I wish I did not know
It leaves a sad refrain
Deep in my heart

When love was young and new to me
I thought it was all fun and free
And it would always be
Pleasure for me

But as the years flew swiftly by
Love taught me once again to cry
And that its price would be
Sorrow for me

So love will have its seasons too
Its times when all is sweet and new
But like the summer flowers
It too will fade

And love will come and love will go
This thing I wish I did not know
It leaves a sad refrain
Deep in my heart

Now as the years have drifted by
Love can no longer make me cry
Now that I realize
Where true love lies

There is but one eternal love
That's written in the stars above
It is a mother's love
For her own child

So love will have its seasons too
Its times when all is sweet and new
But like the summer flowers
It too will fade

And love will come and love will go
This thing I wish I did not know
It leaves a sad refrain
Deep in my heart

Old Man's Prayer

Hobblin' along Singin' a song
Doin' my best
To get along

Clingin' to life
With my fork and knife
Lookin' ahead
To goin' to bed

With pretty women
Dancin' in my head
I say amen
Amen, amen

Oh, carry me back
To my wild younger days
When I was a terror
To behold

The girly men fled
When I strod into a room
And pretty women fell
Into a swoon

Those were the days
Where have they gone

Hobblin' along
Singin' a song
Doin' my best
To get along

Clingin' to life
With my fork and knife
Lookin' ahead
To goin' to bed

With pretty women
Dancin' in my head
I say amen
Amen, amen

Oh, carry me back
To those passionate times
When life was a pleasure
to behold

When ruby red lips
Were enthralled by a kiss
And young hearts were searching
for true love

Those were the days
Where have they gone

Hobblin' along
Singin' a song
Doin' my best
To get along

Clingin' to life
With my fork and knife
Lookin' ahead
To goin' to bed

With pretty women
Dancin' in my head
I say amen
Amen, amen

Rich and Growing Old

I drive a big Mercedes Benz
The biggest one that they make
I've got a big house here in town
And another at the lake

I've got lots of stocks and bonds
And my safe is filled with gold
But I don't have any happiness
And I'm growing old

Oh, I want to buy some happiness
Tell me brother where's that sold
I don't care how much it costs
Cause I've got lots of gold

What's that you say it can't be bought
With my silver and my gold
What a terrible thing to tell a man
Who's rich and growing old

I've got a house down at the beach
With a big yacht docked out back
I play golf at the country club
With guys who slap my back

They tell me I'm a big success
And in some ways they are right
But I don't have any happiness
It makes me cry at night

Oh, I want to buy some happiness
Tell me brother where's that sold
I don't care how much it costs
Cause I've got lots of gold

What's that you say it can't be bought
With my silver and my gold
What a terrible thing to tell a man
Who's rich and growing old

There was a time when I was poor
But my life was full of joy
I had a wife to share my life
And a little girl and boy

Now my wife has passed away
And my children are all gone
Why has life deserted me
And left me all alone

Oh, I want to buy some happiness
Tell me brother where's that sold
I don't care how much it costs
Cause I've got lots of gold

What's that you say it can't be bought
With my silver and my gold
What a terrible thing to tell a man
Who's rich and growing old

Beach Theme

The music for this song is Frank Chacksfield's version of Ebtide
By the sea
You and me
Holding hands
In the surf

We knew way back then
That our love would last
Till time stood still

Through the years
Holding hands
Through the years
Love was true

And still Yet today
Holding hands
By the sea

We embrace
And share a kiss
For you and me
And for the sea

'Cause we knew
Our love was sure
And would endure
Every test of time

In the sun
In the rain
Still in love

By the sea
You and me
Holding hands
In the surf

We knew

Newt

Newt the reverse Robin Hood
Steals from the poor to do them good
And gives to the rich to help them out
That's what Newt is all about

Now he was born poor
Just like a church mouse
Without ready cash
And in a rent house

But he had some smarts
And cunning to boot
And soon figured out
The best scam for Newt

Newt the reverse Robin Hood
Steals from the poor to do them good
And gives to the rich to help them out
That's what Newt is all about

Young Newt was taught well
The poor were just trash
And rich folks were good
But needed more cash

He'd steal from the poor
And give to the rich
Who'd take care of Newt
That son of a bitch

Newt the reverse Robin Hood
Steals from the poor to do them good
And gives to the rich to help them out
That's what Newt is all about

Women in Love

Women in love are the slaves of their lovers
It's a shame that god made it so
It's always men who get all their druthers
And women who get stuck with the chores

Wake up you loving women 'cause it's a sin
To do all of your living only for your men
You cannot guarantee that they'll be true
Even if you play the slave in all you do

It all began in the Garden of Eden
There was no justice even at first
Men got the power and all of the glory
And women got the pain and the curse

Now Adam ate the apple given by his wife
But Eve did all the picking you can bet your life
But listen to me women nature has a plan
That also gives you power to make a slave of man

It is a power that never will fail you
It will make the men share the chores
It is the key if you will just use it
The one that fits your bedroom doors

Yes, this is a key that nature made for you
It will bring the men to their knees
Men are your slaves if you will just use it
And simply give a turn of those keys

Now Adam ate the apple given by his wife
Eve did all the picking you can bet your life
But women listen to me, there is nature's plan
That also gives you power to make a slave of man

It is a power that never will fail you
It will make the men share the chores
It is the key if you will just use it
The one that fits your bedroom doors

Yes, this is a key that nature made for you
It will bring the men to their knees
Men are your slaves if you will just use it
And simply give a turn of those keys
