I've barely even got five bucks!
Isn't that just plain stupid luck,
All I want is to fill the truck,
I got to haul around this duck!



"Them ain't no militia, that's the Army of the Potomac!"

I got to hual around this duck!
Such rotten luck.
Babysitting this little brat.
the last time my pocket had a rat!
He refused to take a bath.
He begged me to do his math.
sooner or later he'll be asleep.
then at last, I can count sheep.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

Then at last, I can count sheep..
Until I run out of fingers and toes..
Hopefully before then I'll fall asleep..
Otherwise I'll have to count on my nose..

Otherwise I'll have to count on my nose..
To carry me to hot meals
Keep me away from danger
Dangerous smells
Yuck

Some days just sucked.
But then we turn things around.
Even those with the worst luck.
Are free and unbound.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

Are free and unbound..
But yet a slave to desire..
No relief can be found..
To quench the raging fire..

To quench the raging fire
one must aspire to climb ever higher
unafraid to walk the wire
chasing destiny fighting fate

Chasing destiny fighting fate,
I'll be exhausted at this rate.
I think I'll relax with a cup of tea,
close my eyes and listen to the sea.

Close my eyes and listen to the sea.
Body buried deep in the sand,
Wave after wave splashing over me.
Washed away to never, never land.

Washed away to never, never land..
Laying on a pillow stuffed with dreams..
To places that always feel so grand..
But even in dreams, it's never as it seems..

But even in dreams, it's never as it seems..
One must always awake to realities bite..
Why can't we ever return to our dreams?
As slumber recedes, they fade from sight...

As slumber recedes, they fade from sight,
Slumping into the dim twilight,
They head to a land,
With a helping hand,
From Peter,
The gatekeeper.

The gatekeeper
shines a light to find his keys
unlocking the gates of paradise
waiting on those on the returning flight

Eyes seeking familiar faces
Hoping
Someone desires their return

Someone desires their return
Heightened senses begin to churn
For passionate words they yearn
Sparking embers of love to burn
Knowing another desires their return

Knowing another desires their return.
But they are lost in the labyrinth.
Escape is what they yearn.
oh the poor knights.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

Oh the poor knights..
Never stood a chance in any of their fights..
Battered and torn much to her delights..
Rebellious_Soul was their worst night fright..

Rebellious_Soul was their worst night fright.
They thought they were in for a really bad plight,
but, quite honestly, they really weren't,
so in that thought they were quite errant.

Those silly people, their eyes should be poked,
so very hard, until they croaked,
that's what they get for 'fronting a Rebel,
a better punishment, might be sucking on a pebble.

Never, is it advised to confront a rebel,
unless you wish to fight a Tasmanian devil.

Unless you wish to fight a Tasmanian devil,
I'd suggest you leave,
you bloody wee skeeve.
Just go away, you're not on the level.

Pissing about
with a Tasmanian devil,
you really are
a strange little weevil.

A strangle little weevil
Who really thinks it's evil.
Plots and plans the demise
Of those whom cannot rise.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

But yet still he tries.
He want to be with us again
But here's my question.... when?

Till the midnight hour strikes from big ben?
Will i ever see you again?
I will miss our time together old friend.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?

I will miss our time together old friend,
even though you drove me around the bend,
so to you I send
my best regards,
and hope you're not eaten
by birds rapidly tweetin'.

And my Great Wowa we'll never be done

Unto him we must pay his dues
Else our settled lives we'll lose
Come, I hear the drums a'beating

Let's tarry no longer, time is fleeting
I eagerly await our meeting
Overcoming time and space
till we come upon that place
deep below or high above
where our hearts may join in love



If life seems jolly rotten
there's something you've forgotten
and that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing
