Track Name: Sad Songs
Sad Song

I’m as broke as a spoke without a wheel.

I’m forlorn as an orange without a peel

I’m as sad as a song that has gone on too long

I’m as sad as a song without you.

I’m as drunk as a monk without a prayer

I’m as sunk as a drunk without a beer

I’m as sad as a song that has gone on too long

I’m as sad as a song without you.

I’m astray like a day without a week

I’m adrift like a kiss without a cheek

I’m as sad as a song that has gone on too long

I’m as sad as a song without you.

At least I’m free as a train that’s left the track

Or a tire thrown from a car after a wreck

Still I’m sad as a song that has gone on too long

I’m as sad as a song without you
Track Name: Sadder Song
Sadder Song

There’s one song I can only hear in Heaven

And another I can only hear in Hell

I feel like I’m going to have to choose between them

But what that choice will be, not even I can tell

I think that all the way up there in Heaven

There’s some folks I’d surely like to see again

But then I think that all the way down there in Hell

There’s some folks I’d surely like to make my friend

On the other hand, I guess that up in Heaven

There’s people that I would surely like to meet

And I bet that if I really went to Hell

There’d be people there I’d be afraid to greet

Between the two there stands a great big fence

I wish that I could travel to each side

And join each tune into a single song

So we’d all gather at the fence and sing along
Track Name: Saddest Song
The Saddest Song

This song will be the saddest song that you’ve ever heard

This song will be the saddest song in the whole wide world

This song is so sad it might make you want to cry

This song is so sad it might make you want to die

This song is so sad I’m not sure that you could bear it

This song is so sad I’m not sure I should let you hear it

In fact, to be on the safe side, perhaps I should just misplace it

Or perhaps, to be even safer, I should just erase it

Well, I couldn’t do that, but maybe I could just make up my mind to hide it

Somewhere neither you nor anyone else could ever find it

Perhaps I’ll climb into a boat and sail to the middle of a sea

And lock this song up in a box and just let it sink

Perhaps I’ll climb into a plane and fly to the top of a mountain

And hide this song at the back of a cave guarded by a fierce lion

What could be sadder than a song no one’s ever heard?

Pardon me, I’m too sad to go on, even for another word.
Track Name: Hobo Song
Sometimes I wish I was a poor

young hobo,

Just a’ramblin round.

I’d hunt my meals out of a can

And sleep upon the ground.

And when I didn’ like my friends,

I’d move to the next town

And make myself some better friends

Who wouldn’t let me down…

We’d laugh and sing and drink all day

And play cards in the night

But then we’d find a good old girl

And want to treat her right

We’d go and find ourselves a job

So we can pay the bills

And buy her lots of fancy things

With all them fancy frills

We’d work all day out in the sun

And build things for the man

And dream of when we get real old

And never have to work again
Track Name: Will I see you again?
Living for the fast times
working for the slow
pretending it’s the summer
moaning in the snow
rice is on Sunday
Tuesday’s there’s pasta.
Living in a little house makes you have things smaller
living in a big house makes you taller
It’s been a long day
now that I’ve lost you
But when will I see you again?

You with a beer
me with some cold drink
cook a big meal
loading up the kitchen sink
Who’s gonna do the dishes in the morning?
Stealing your bananas from under the cupboard
the smile on your face when you told me you love her
but who’s gonna do the dishes in the morning?
And when will I see you again?

When will I see you again?
When will I see you again?

It’s been a long day
now that I’ve lost you
