DOG DAYS


Lazy moon floats across the sky

The sun, it moves likes molasses

Lemonade shade in the afternoon

Ice cubes clinking in the glasses


All the time in the world

When the sun stands pat

When the clocks are unwound

And the tires are all flat


Too hot to move,too hot to speak

Every pore on my skin, has sprung a leak

The river’s so flat, the air is so still

No birds a flyin’, they've lost the will


All the time in the world

When the sun stands pat

When the clocks are unwound

And the tires are all flat


I had a nap 

About an hour ago

My sleepy eyes

Keep telling' me they’re ready  for more


All the time in the world

When the sun stands pat

When the clocks are unwound

And the tires are all flat



-New EP Lyrics-


PLAY THAT RECORD


Baby put on the record player

It’s a saturday night

Outside it’s cold as brass monkeys

The cabin’s cozy and bright

I can open some wine

You can kick off your shoes

I can do the fandango

You can do that crazy boogaloo

The world may be sad and blue

Oh but tonight it’s just me and you


Baby play your favorite record

And I can play one for you

Honey play that scratchy record

Might skip a time or two.....

Old memories

Adrift on a song

Sway in time to the music

Or we could sing along

Tonight it’s just you and me

Oh and Mr. Phonograph. baby that’s three


And when it’s getting late

And the fire’s burned low

You’ll wrap your arms around me

And we’ll dance real slow

Through a frosted window

The moon’s so full and bright

We’ll put the weary world to bed

Beneath a blanket of white



Baby play that crazy record

The one we used to know

The fire’s burnin’ brightly

Outside it’s startin’ to snow

It’s a cold cold world  it’s true

Oh It may be sad and blue

Gonna see it through

Cuz tonight it’s just me and you


Baby play that crazy record....


EVERYONE'S GONE TO THE MOON

​(Jonathan King)


Streets full of people, all alone

Rows of house, no one home

Church full of singing out of tune

Everyone has gone to the moon


Eye’s full of sorrow, never wet

Hands full of money, all in debt

Sun’s coming out in the middle of June

But everyone has gone to the moon


Long time ago, life had begun

Everybody went

To the sun...


Cars with their motors painted green

Mouths full of chocolate covered creams

Arms that can only lift a spoon

Everyone has gone to the....

Sun’s coming out in the middle of June

Everyone has gone to the...

Church full of singing out of tune

Everyone has gone

​Everyone has gone...


MOON ON WATER


Moon on water, a dance of light

It slips right through my fingers

The taste of salt upon my lips

That’s all that’s left that lingers

Fools and Pharaohs

Build their bridges to the stars

Farther and farther

They’ll never get that far...

...Get that far


A bird in flight, a house of mirrors

The promise to be free

Shards of light and broken glass

Come raining down on me

Kings and clowns

Build their towers to the sky

Stone upon stone

They’ll never get that high...

...Get that high


Oh the beaches of the world

They lie quiet and serene

But every grain of sand recalls

The mountain that he longed to be...

...He longed to be


Moon on water, a dance of light

It slips right through my fingers
