" The Diet Song "

Lyrics:

Breakfast, black coffee, one slice of dry toast
No butter, no jelly, no jam
Lunch, just some lettuce, two celery stalks
No booze, no potatoes, no ham.

Dinner, one chicken wing, broiled not fried
No gravy, no biscuits, no pie
And this dietin', dietin', dietin', dietin'
Sure is a rough way to die.

So pass me a carrot stick, peel me a prune
A glass of skim milk and that's all
Turn off the TV for the Big Mac commercial
It's drivin' me right up the wall.

And I'm thinkin' of french fries, sausage and waffles
Spaghetti and cookies and cake
And each night I'm dreamin' of chocolate ice cream.
And I'm starvin' to death when I wake.

--- Instrumental ---

Supper, two pieces of cauliflower, raw
Some beefsteak the size of a nail
One sliced tomato, a small dab of slaw
I swear I ate better in jail.

Stop eatin' that pizza right under my nose
Girl that's the least you can do
Put down that candy bar while I'm singin'
I'm starvin' my pants off for you.

You're fixin' the kids all those creamed mashed potatoes
But it's bouillon and water for me
Hey, you got a lock on the refrigerator
Lord knows where you're hidin' the key.

While I'm starvin' for food late at night
I'm starvin' for lovin' from you
But you say that when I can see my own dick
You'll be glad to look at it too.

So pass me a carrot stick, peel me a prune
A glass of skim milk and that's all
You and Jane Fonda and old Richard Simmons
Are drivin' me right off the wall.

Now when I am dead with the insurance paid
You'll look down at me and you'll grin
You'll say, well the boy tried and he suffered and died
But don't he look good when he's thin? oh my.

And this dietin', dietin', dietin', dietin'
Sure is a rough way to die...

Running Bear

Lyrics:

Songwriters: RICHARDSON, J. P.

On the bank of the river stood Running Bear, young Indian brave
On the other side of the river stood his lovely Indian maid
Little White Dove was her name, such a lovely sight to see
But their tribes fought with each other, so their love could never be

Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love big as the sky
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die

He couldn't swim the raging river 'cause the river was too wide
He couldn't reach the Little White Dove waiting on the other side
In the moonlight he could see her throwing kisses 'cross the waves
Her little heart was beating faster waiting for her Indian brave

Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love big as the sky
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die

Running Bear dove in the water, Little White Dove did the same
And they swam out to each other through the swirling stream they came
As their hands touched and their lips met, the raging river pulled them down
Now they'll always be together in their happy hunting ground

Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love big as the sky
Running Bear loved Little White Dove
With a love that couldn't die

Do Your Ears Hang Low?

Lyrics:

Do Your Ears Hang Low?
Do They Wobble to and Fro?
Can You Tie Them in a Knot?
Can You Tie Them in a Bow?
Can You Throw Them Over Your Shoulder Like a Continental Soldier?

Do Your Ears Hang Low?
Do Your Ears Hang High?
Do They Reach Up to the Sky?
Do The Droop When They're Wet?
Do They Stiffen When They're Dry?
Can You Semaphore Your Neighbor with a Mimimum of Labor?

Do Your Ears Hang High?
Do Your Ears Hang Wide?
Do They Flap From Side to Side?
Do They Wave in the Breeze?
From the Slightest Little Sneeze?
Can You Soar Above the Nation with a Feeling of Elation?

Do Your Ears Hang Wide?
Do Your Ears Fall Off?
When You Give a Great Big Cough?
Do They Lie There on the Ground?
Or Bounce Up at Every Sound?
Can You Stick Them in Your Pocket Just Like Little Davy Crockett?

Do Your Ears Fall Off?

Just A Bowl Of Butter Beans

Lyrics: BUTTER BEANS (Charles D. Colvin - To the tune of "Just A Closer Walk With Thee) Little Jimmy Dickens - 1965 Also recorded by: Johnny Russell; Papa Joe Smiddy. Just a bowl of butter beans Pass the cornbread if you please I don't want no collard greens All I want is a bowl of butter beans Just a piece of country ham Pass the butter and the jam Pass the biscuits if you please And some more o' them good ol' butter beans Red eye gravy is all right Turnip sandwich a delight But my children all still scream For another bowl of butter beans Some folks think that cornpone's best Some likes grits more than the rest But if I was a man of means I'd just want them good ol' butter beans See that lady over there With the curlers in her hair She's not pregnant as she seems She's just full o' them good ol' butter beans See that big, fat, ugly lad He's made everybody mad They don't love him, by no means He's the hog that ate the last of the butter beans When they lay my bones to rest Place no roses upon my chest Plant no blooming evergreens All I want is' a bowl of butter beans Just a bowl of butter beans Pass the cornbread if you please I don't want no collard greens All I want is a bowl of butter beans Click Here for video.

Dinah, won't you blow, Dinah, won't you blow, Dinah, won't you blow your horn? Dinah, won't you blow, Dinah, won't you blow, Dinah, won't you blow your horn? Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah.

Crazy Mixed Up Song

Lyrics: Billy Cotton & His Band ‘Twas midnight on the ocean not a streetcar was in sight The sun was shining brightly in the middle of the night A barefoot boy with shoes on stood there sitting in a tree And when I put my glasses on I heard this melody Be kind to your web footed friends For a duck may be somebody’s mother Be kind to the denizen of the swamp She’s a dilly through and through You may think that this is the end Well it isn’t ‘cos there is another chorus. ‘Twas midnight on the ocean when the rain began to snow He hurried to me slowly ‘cos the time had come to go I said I’d wait forever if it wouldn’t take too long And silently we harmonised this crazy mixed up song Be kind to your web footed friends For a duck may be somebody’s mother Be kind to the denizen of the swamp She’s a dilly through and through You may think that this is the end Well it isn’t ‘cos there is another chorus. ‘Twas midnight on the ocean on the day I married him I didn’t know his name was Fred that’s why I called him Jim We settled down in London, France, beside the pyramids And raised a little family of crazy mixed up kids Be kind to your web footed friends For a duck may be somebody’s mother Be kind to the denizen of the swamp She’s a dilly through and through You may think that this is the end Well it is.

I seem to see a race in memory Between the Natchez and the Robert E. Lee. Swanee shore, I miss you more and more; Ev'ryday, my mammy land, you're simply grand Down yonder, when the folks get the news, Don't wonder at the hullabaloo. There's Daddy and Mammy, there's Ephram and Sammy, Waitin' down yonder for me. Summer night, fields of white, bright cotton moon ? My, but I feel glad I'm gonna see you all soon! 'Lasses cakes mammy bakes, I taste them now. I'll see my sweetie once more, There's lots of kissing in store. Click Here for video. Source: Internet

Tell Me The Story Of Jesus

Lyrics: Tell me the story of Jesus, Write on my heart every word. Tell me the story most precious, Sweetest that ever was heard. Tell how the angels in chorus, Sang as they welcomed His birth. “Glory to God in the highest! Peace and good tidings to earth.” Refrain Tell me the story of Jesus, Write on my heart every word. Tell me the story most precious, Sweetest that ever was heard. Fasting alone in the desert, Tell of the days that are past. How for our sins He was tempted, Yet was triumphant at last. Tell of the years of His labor, Tell of the sorrow He bore. He was despised and afflicted, Homeless, rejected and poor. Refrain Tell of the cross where they nailed Him, Writhing in anguish and pain. Tell of the grave where they laid Him, Tell how He liveth again. Love in that story so tender, Clearer than ever I see. Stay, let me weep while you whisper, Love paid the ransom for me.
