THE SNAKE Al Wilson On her way to work one morning Down the path along side the lake A tender hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew Poor thing, she cried, I'll take you in and I'll take care of you Take me in tender woman Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman, sighed the snake She wrapped him all cozy in a comforter of silk And laid him by her fireside with some honey and some milk She hurried home from work that night and soon as she arrived She found that pretty snake she'd taken to had bee revived Take me in, tender woman Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman, sighed the snake She clutched him to her bosom, You're so beautiful, she cried But if I hadn't brought you in by now you might have died She stroked his pretty skin again and kissed and held him tight Instead of saying thanks, the snake gave her a vicious bite Take me in, tender woman Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman, sighed the snake I saved you, cried the woman And you've bitten me, but why? You know your bite is poisonous and now I'm going to die Oh shut up, silly woman, said the reptile with a grin You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in Take me in, tender woman Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in, tender woman, sighed the snake

The Kind Of Man A Woman Needs

BARBRA STREISAND "My Name Is Barbra Two"
Handsome, no, my man ain't handsome But there's a trace of a wondrous grace In his weary face Life has done its best to break him But his strength and courage Make him just the kind of man a woman needs Tender, he ain't always tender But in his eyes something warm and wise Lifts me to the skies If his heart ain't always showing It's a comfort just to know him He' s the kind of man a woman needs Sometimes he'll grow angry At some foolish things I do Than he'll forgive to spare me pain Times he'll know I'm troubled So he'll laugh to cheer me through Till my heart is light As Summer rain...mmm... No, my man ain't youthful That time's gone by But his head is high And his dreams won't die Though he's had his share of sorrow He looks forward to tomorrow He's the kind of man a woman needs He's the kind of man a woman needs...

Everything Goes To Hell

TOM WAITS
Why be sweet, why be careful, why be kind? A man has only one thing on his mind... Why ask politely, why go lightly, why say please? They only want to get you on your knees! There's a few things that I never could believe: A woman when she weeps, A merchant when he swears, A thief who says he'll pay A lawyer when he cares, A snake when he is sleeping, A drunkard when he prays. I don't believe you go to heaven when you're good; Everything goes to hell, anyway! Laissez-faire mi amour, ce la vie. Shall I return to shore or swim back out to sea? The world don't care what a sailor does in town, It's all hanging in the windows by the pound. I don't believe you go to heaven when you're good; Everything goes to hell, anyway! I only want to hear you purr and to hear you moan. You have another man who brings the money home! I don't want dishes in the sink, Don't ask me what I feel or what I think. There's a few things that I never could believe: A woman when she weeps, A merchant when he swears, A thief who says he'll pay A lawyer when he cares, A snake when he is sleeping, A drunkard when he prays. I don't believe you go to heaven when you're good; Everything goes to hell, anyway! Everything goes to hell, anyway! Oh, everything goes to hell, anyway!

What On Earth (Will You Do For Heaven's Sake)

JOHNNY CASH "Ragged Old Flag"
Did you walk another mile, turn a frown with a smile? Did you lift the lowly heart about to break? Would you also give your cloak to one who took away your coat? What on earth will you do for heaven's sake? Did you feed the poor in spirit and befriend the prosecuted? Will you show the bounds that all the chains can break? Did you sow the proper seed? Are you keeping out the weeds? What on earth will you do for heaven's sake? Will you be one of the meek, did you turn the other cheek? Would you give a little more than you would take? Did you shine your little light upon the children of the night? What on earth will you do for heaven's sake? Did you feed the poor in spirit and befriend the prosecuted? Will you show the bounds that all the chains can break? Did you sow the proper seed? Are you keeping out the weeds? What on earth will you do for heaven's sake?

The Cowboy Who Started The Fight

JOHNNY CASH "Rockabilly Blues"
The legs on the lady a walkin' Was tanned to a dark berry brown. Her body was made like a song to be played To the tune of a million a pound. She was a wonder of a woman I reckon And she's who screwed her head on right. The toast of the world was a long legged girl And the cowboy who started the fight. He'd just pulled into town in an old green 1953 Chevrlet pickup truck with whiskey bumbs all over it and the right front fender falling off. He coasted on into a no parking zone, got out and took the keys and chunked 'em down a gutter, turned around and just walked off. He allowed how his time had been wasted On drinking and running around. He spend half his life searchin' barrooms at night For the sweetheart that he never found. It was plain from the moment their eyes met, They'd wind up in each others arms. The lady's young life was laid open that night And the cowboy drank deep from of her charms. Singing hey-h-ide-he from the depths of the sea To the mountains so hollering high. "I've found the best one under God's given sun." Yeah the cowboy got lucky tonight. While the angel beside him lay sleeping He silently thanked God above For being a kind hearted father And blessing his life with her love. For one night of love with that woman Was more than he knew he deserved. So he found all he had left worth givin' And he gave all he had left for her. He slid back inside his ole Levi's And filled up his boots with his feet While the subways beneath New York City Screamed through the veins of the street. For the lady gave up without question The trophy she saved all her life. Then she curled up beside His old weather worn hide And the cowboy just laid down and died. Hey-hi-de-he when a whoop through the street As his soul slowly winged out of sight. The lady was torn from the child bein' born And the cowboy found heaven that night. The lady was torn from the child bein' born And the cowboy found heaven that night.

Take You To Heaven

Earth Wind And Fire
Girle there is an open door, feeling you haven't explored You're awake throught the night, I wanna be there just to hold you so tight Can't wait one minute more, this longing for you can't be ignored am I moving too fast? I wanna be there to console you Chorus: I'll take you to heaven tonight Make you feel you like Paradise like a woman should feel I'll do you right if it takes all night (take you to heaven_ Verse 2: You, wanna trust in love one more time but you caution your heart Let your minid believe in me cause I'd never do nothing to hurt you Come here, I'm feeling you girl so strong tell me baby how could this be wrong When every kiss, says I'd never be the man to desert you Hook: I'll take you to heaven tonight Make you feel you like Paradise like a woman should feel I'll do you right if it takes all night (take you to heaven) Bridge: Can't sleep, Can't eat, I Can't Breath, Ooh Wee I need you right here with me, baby cause with you in my life, I tell ya that it's sheer ecstasy Hook: I'll take you to heaven tonight Make you feel you like Paradise like a woman should feel I'll do you right if it takes all night (take you to heaven)
