Track Name: Red Dress
Been saving pennies, I don’t have a lot
But when I spend I know I’ve got
Something great, something grand
That I found at Sally Ann

When I put that red dress on, I’m dressing up to kill
Nothing makes me feel just like that red dress will
I’m looking good and feelin’ fine
Goin out in my red/ that dress tonight

It’s been a long week, workin’ every day
No time for restin’, no time for play
Well I just can’t wait, till I get home
Throw my blues away and slip my/put that dress on

When I put that red (put that red)
Dress on (that red dress on)
I put that red (put that red)
Dress on (that red dress on)
I put that red (put that red)
Put that red (put that red)
When I put that red dress on (red dress on)

Well we’re going to the commodore
Won’t you swing me round the dance floor
So don’t keep track and don’t keep score
Just keep me out dancin’ all night!

Kickin’ up my heals and my blues
In this red (in this little) dress I never lose
If looks could kill I’d be shot dead
Everybody needs a dress that’s red
Track Name: All I Need
I don’t need the birds to sing
I don’t need a diamond ring
I don’t need a soft porch swing
To have a happy heart

I don’t need a private jet
I don’t need a purebred pet
I don’t need a new corvette
To set myself apart

Love is all I really need to know I’ll be all right

I don't need a strat guitar
I don’t need a limo car
I don’t need a fat cigar
To know I found success

I don’t need my own Matisse
I don’t need a mantelpiece
I don’t need a trip to Greece
To know that more is less

Love is all I really need - to know I’ll be all right

When I have love, I have trust
When I can trust, oh there’s peace
When there is peace, I am free
When I am free, I can love

I don’t need to lose more weight
I don’t need a sexy date
I don’t need prime real estate
To know that I’m a prize
Track Name: A Million Little Things
Have you got the winter blahs?
All you’re seeing are your flaws
Don’t you worry, don’t you fear
The clouds will disappear
Are your jeans getting tight?
Your world’s is black and white
Just look between the cracks
And you will see a bit of light

There are a million little things that make life grand

When the world outside is cold
You’re feeling sad and old
Just look upon your friends
On them you can depend

To make you crack a smile
Sit and laugh wit you awhile
Bring you up when you are low
And once again you’ll know

Chorus
Is there water in your boot
Are you running out of loot
When your plane is goin’ down
Just grab that parachute

When you can’t reach the top shelf
You’re annoyed with yourself
All you gotta do
Is ask for a little help

Chorus

Look at these shoes,
I’ve got these hips
I’ve got this hair
I’ve got these lips
We’ve got the trees
Got the breeze
Got the seas
We’ve got a million little things (million little things)
We’ve got the wind beneath our wings (wind beneath our hearts)
We’ve got our hearts and our hearts can love

Has the sky has been grey for days?
Are you always in a phase?
Count your blessings one, two three
There are a million little things that make life grand
Track Name: Bad Man
You hope I find the light
You want me to find peace
Behind that liars tongue are your sharp teeth

You say you changed your ways
You’ve found namaste
Chant all you like, I know your game

You’re a bad man,
You’re a bad man
It takes more than meditation,
You’re a bad man

You are still a monster
With demons up your sleeve
So don’t - preach that yogi talk on me

I know your violent temper
Your tantrums and your rage
Love won’t even find you in the grave

CHORUS

When you see that a man comin'
Loose your shoes and getta' runnin'
Consider us a voice of warnin'
He’s a bad man
Track Name: Ain't Gonna Bother
If it ain’t gonna bother you, it ain’t gonna bother me
Ain’t been your day since you been born
You been working your whole life long
Thinkin’ about the time you’ll rest your bones
If it ain’t gonna bother you, it ain’t botherin me

If it ain’t gonna rock the boat, it ain’t gonna bother me
You can go on and sail the storm
99 days since you been gone
Swearin’ like a sailor til’ you come home
If it ain’t gonna rock the boat, it ain’t botherin me

If it ain’t gonna dig your grave, it ain’t gonna bother me
Devil be dancing over your head
Devil be dancing before your dead
Think about the life that you done lead
If it ain’t gonna dig your grave, it ain’t botherin me

If it ain’t gonna dirty the soul, it ain’t gonna bother me
You can go on now dirty as sin
Look at all the trouble that you get in
Well I ain’t gonna ask you where you been
If it ain’t gonna dirty the soul, it ain’t bothering me

If it ain’t gonna bother you, if it ain’t gonna rock the boat
If it ain’t gonna dig your grave, if it ain’t gonna dirty the soul
If it ain’t gonna break your bones
Ain’t gonna bother the bees
If it ain’t gonna bother you, it ain’t bothering me
Track Name: Honey Bee
Honey Bee don’t you leave
I’ll make you a happy home
You’ll be the queen, in these fields of green
Kissing every flower on the nose
Tickle with your feet
You’ll go make the sweetest nectar in the land

Honey Bee you’ll be free
To buzz around your happy home!
Safe and sound in honey town
Ruling from your sweet pea thrown
In your honeycomb retreat
You’ll go make the sweetest nectar in the land

Who could blame you
For having to go
Don’t you know
You don’t have to go, oh no!

Cuz there’s a clean paradise
I set away just for the queen
A luscious blooming garden
Nestled by a gentle stream.

Honey Bee, your babies
Will grow up in this happy comb!
Dance around in honeytown.
The nurses, the workers and the drones
With your royal fleet
You’ll go make the sweetest nectar in the land!
And all 12 lovers of the queen
Track Name: Hallelujah Baby
Halleluiah baby, Hallelu
Halleluiah baby, Hallelu

I once thought the world was up against me
To bring me down not to set me free
One fine day I found the truth
Halleluiah baby, halleloo.

I once thought success could change it all
But the harder I worked, the harder I’d fall
I took a step back, it all came into view
Halleluiah baby, halleloo

Praise for the good times,
Praise for the bad times,
Praise for the love I find everyday!

I once thought that I did not need my faith
I thought I could control my fate
Then came the dark times I could not see through
Halleluiah baby, halleloo

Praise for the sunshine,
Praise for the grey skies,
Praise for the joy I find everyday!
Everyday!

I would not go back and change my life
All that pain and struggle, suffering and strife
Well, in those moments I found the truth
Halleluiah baby, halleloo

Praise for the good times,
Praise for the bad times,
Praise for the love I find everyday!
Praise for the sunshine,
Praise for the grey skies,
Praise for the joy I find everyday!
Everyday!
Track Name: Milk 'n Honey
Well I once was a rich girl but not any more
Trouble came and knocked at my door
He stole all my money and my friends
I never seem to see them any more
I never seem to see them any more

CHORUS
I came down from the land of milk and honey
and I've been away too long
I came down from the land of milk and honey
and I’m going back to where I belong

whistling solo

Well he found me at my sweetest, used my weakness
went for broke and took my last dime
no toast, no honey, baby no money
hows a girl like me to get by
said now hows a girl like me to get by

CHORUS
I came down from the land of milk and honey
But i've been away too long
I came down from the land of milk and honey
And I’m going back to where I belong

Now she’s got a plan, I’ll be a wealthy gal again
It’s easy, just a matter of time
i’m not broken, I’m not busted, that man cant be trusted
Yes he’s a gonna pay for his crime
Yes he’s gonna pay for this crime

CHORUS
I came down from the land of milk and honey
and i've been away too long
I came down from the land of milk and honey
and i've been away too long
Track Name: Go on Mama
Go on momma, I’ll be okay
I’ve learned from the best how to be brave
You taught me well and did the best you could
I hope that I can be half as good

For we don’t get out of here alive
We don’t get out of here alive
We don’t get out of here alive
It’s so much brighter and lighter on the other side.

Go on momma, go find the light
I take comfort knowing I’m not that far behind
Your second son is waiting for you
His hands outstretched to guide you through

Chorus

Go on momma, go make your move
I’m strong enough now, to burry you
The heaven’s gates and the arms of saints
Open wide as smiles to welcome you
Track Name: Dancing 'cause of my Joy
Woke up this morning
I was smiling all over
And dancing ‘cause of my joy

Workin’ all day
Do the hustle all over
Dancing’ cause of my joy

I do the mambo
I do the tango
I do the twist
And the bolero
I do the line dance, square dance, moon dance, break dance
Dancing’ cause of my joy

Every day’s a blessing
My cup runneth over
A blessing because of my joy

When I get to heaven
I be dancin’ all over
Praisin’ the Lord
Cause my troubles are over
Dancing ‘cause of my joy

chorus

So go call the angels
Peter and Gabriel
Their wings will be flappin
When the angels are dancing
Dancing cause of their joy


Woke up this morning
I was smiling all over
And dancing ‘cause of my joy
Track Name: Watching the Water Rise
Watching the water rise
Watching the water rise
Watching the water, watching the water
Watching the water rise!

My neighbor said it was a hoax
The senate said it was a joke
They told us it was coming; we didn’t hear the warnin’
No you can’t stop the rising sea

New York is building a wall
They can’t save Miami at all
San Francisco Bay might be okay
But you can’t stop the rising sea

Chorus

Now we’re sailing through Time Square
Feel the salt in the air
Swim with all your might, no land in sight
No you can’t stop the rising sea

You might think that you’re okay
You can’t think another way
When the storm surges come, there won’t be time to run
No you can’t stop the rising sea

Chorus

Go on protect your land
Work together, best you can
I’m telling you it’s coming, better head my warnin’
Cuz you can’t stop the rising sea
Track Name: Yes It's True
If I resent,
With boasting pride,
My heart will never grow.
I believe,
The better side,
Is to forgive and let go.

If I gaze,
With jealous eyes,
I will never get ahead.
I believe,
I’ll always try to count my blessings instead
Count your blessings instead. Yes it’s true…

Through the storm and through the rain
This truth will stay the same
Oh yes know
The sun will always shine on through
If I expect,
And I demand,
All will fall apart.
I believe,
A helping hand,
Will soften that (any) cold heart. Yes it’s true! …

We all know pain, but it won’t last
Leave those troubles in the past
The sun will always shine on through
