Sad Song 03:03
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

Sadder Song 02:54
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

Saddest Song 02:34
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.

Hobo Song 03:38
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

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
