Show me the prison
Show me the jail
Show me the prisoner
Whose life has gone stale

Ahh, look at all the lonely people

A lady tell me the other day
No one can take her sweet man away
I ask her what was the mystery
She say coconut water and rice curry

Gone with the cold wind
That swept into your heart
Gone with the lovers
Who let their dreams depart

I peeked in to say goodnight
And then I heard my child in prayer

In the chilly hours and minutes of uncertainty
I want to be
In the warm hold of your loving mind

Two iron gates went wide apart
She held her darlin' to her heart
She kissed her baby boy and then she died
But smiling, she kissed her baby boy boy and then she died

At the twilight's last gleaming

I've waited, waited so long
For your kisses and your love
Please come, come to me

Wished on all the stars above me
And I caught the nearest rainbow
Gonna find someone to love me
Gonna find someone to love

I lost my poor meatball (I lost my poor meatball)
When somebody sneezed (When somebody sneezed)

You get the girls, I'll get the car
Bring a banjo and an old guitar
Get out the spoons, you know the tunes
Hey diddle diddle with a fiddle in the middle

His land is biggest and his land is best
From the grassy plains to the mountain crest

I asked my brother (I asked my brother)
To come with me (to come with me)
I asked my brother (I asked my brother)
To come with me (to come with me)
I asked my brother (I asked my brother)
To come with me (to come with me)

A long time ago when the earth was green
There was more kinds of animals than you'd ever seen

And through the open window she hands Charlie a sandwich
As the train comes rumbling through

Well, he went speeding on down the road
And kissing his gal upon her cheek
They took him to jail but he put up bail

I never knew just what it was
And I guess I never will

As I went walking that ribbon of highway
I saw above me the endless skyway
I saw below me the golden valley

The answer, my friend

Well, the bear will be gentle and the wolves will be tame
And the lion shall lay down by the lamb, whoa, oh, yes
And the beast from the wild shall be led by a child
And I'll be changed, changed from this creature that I am, whoa, oh, yes

Yo soy un hombre sincero
De donde crece la palma

(War bellows blazing in scarlet battalions)

Sailed off on a wooden shoe
Sailed down a river of crystal light
Into a sea of dew

Her face was turned into the sand
Was who? I could not tell
But on her hand a high school ring
A ring I knew too well


Run and get the bucket, get the baby some beer, yeah,
Run and get the bucket get the
Run and get the bucket
Yeah, go on, get out of here

My old gal's a good old pal
And she looks like a water fowl
When I get them
