Pretzel Man

Original and similar lyrics
He's the little pretzel man, he's got his twisted pretzel hands He's got his a pretzel wife, that he's loved all his pretzel life And he's got himself a pretzel girl, that they both brought into their world And watch them all twist pretzels by hand, by hand And if only we all lived in Pretzel Land Six days a week, when he wakes up She will fill his coffee cup Six days a week he is a working man He wheels his wagon to the park He sells pretzels 'till it's dark But that's the only life that he understands He's his own man He's the little pretzel man, he's got his twisted pretzel hands He's got that pretzel wife, that he's loved all his pretzel life And he's got himself a pretzel girl, that they both brought into their world But watch them all twist pretzels by hand, by hand And if only we all lived in Pretzel Land On Sunday, when they go to church In the seventh pew they perch They listen to his sermon and they believe They're grateful for the food they ate So they put their money in a plate They've heard of hungry children and they grieve (they believe) So we watch them all twist pretzels by hand, by hand And if only we all lived in Pretzel Land If only we could all be like that man If only we all lived in Pretzel , only we all lived in Pretzel, only we all lived in Pretzel ...Land

A Salty Piece Of Land

JIMMY BUFFETT "Book - A Salty Piece Of Land (Single)"
I was listening for answers, that I could not really hear, when the words of a wise old Indian put a conch shell to my ear. And I took off for the ocean; I was searching for the coast, kneading pictures of my vision with the words from Grandma Ghost. Hiding from the dragons, riding for the sea, singing ballads from my childhood, a pirate's life for me. Survivors seem to function best when peril is at hand, where the song of the ocean meets a salty piece of land. I was force fed my religion, but I somehow saved my smile. Tapped into my instincts, as I headed towards exile. Cleopatra did not own a barge, but a schooner was her home. She had centuries of stories and there's wisdom in her bones. She was on a sacred mission, then she told me of a place where a man could hide forever, but never lose his face. So I saddled up my sea horse, with a fly rod in my hand, I was not looking for salvation - just a salty piece of land. Some days Cayo Loco shines like the stars up in the sky. And the sea birds they do touch-and-go's as the world just tangos by. But there are times when she is hidden beneath the wild and crashing waves. And the patron saint of lightning, keeps the sailors from their graves. Some say it is a blinding sword, pointing out into the sea, while others say her guiding light leads towards eternity. Still I sit in contemplation and I just don't understand this mysterious attraction of this salty piece of land. Still I search the constellations and the tiny grains of sand, where the song of the ocean meets the salty piece of land.

Under Southern Skies

Nikki Webster
Music by Damien Halloran Verse 1: There's a peace in our hearts and a hope in our hands, We're the family of children; we come from many different lands. Our time is just beginning; our race is yet to run, But if you will take us with you, then we have already won. Chorus: Under the southern skies, Together in this land, Every voice in celebration, A family hand in hand! Under the southern skies, As one we rise, And turn our eyes to see All the wonder of the future In a world of harmony. Verse 2: There's a great spirit rising from the desert to the sea. As it sweeps across this southern land it calls to you and me: We're the dreamers and the dreaming; we're the face of things yet to come. Every child can be a hero if our world can live as one. Chorus: Under the southern skies, Together in this land, Every voice in celebration, A family hand in hand! Under the southern skies, As one we rise, And turn our eyes to see All the wonder of the future In a world of harmony. (Repeat)

Cold Wind

JOHN BUTLER TRIO "Flesh & Blood"
Cold wind it blows Blowing through like Sunday morning Chills my bones, take me home, take me home Home is where the heart is, but my heart's been truly stolen Cold wind it blows, wind it blows Fire in my gut Reminding me that yes I'm in a Great big rut, great big hole, great big hole No one knows, can tell me where those chains begin Fire in my gut, in my gut, in my gut There are places you will never go And there are things that you will never know It all depends on which side of the road Hole in my soul Makes me feel like I am floating Far from my place, I got no land, I got no face Tell me Mr. what's a man supposed to believe in? Hole in my soul, in my soul, in my soul There are places you will never go And there are things that you will never know It all depends on which side of the road Gun in my hand You're tellin' me that I'm meant to obey Laws of your land, of your land, of your land But you don't follow rules of the silly games you play So gun in my hand, in my hand, in my hand There are places you will never go And there are things that you will never know It all depends on which side of the road [x2]

I know you like it hot Love to writhe and sweat You think that this feels good You ain't felt nothin' yet Red-hot licks in the palm of my hand Feel your body quake As we hit the promised land I'm heavy duty We'll rise inside ya till the power splits your head We're gonna rock ya till your metal hunger's fed Let's all join forces Rule with iron hand And prove to all the world Metal rules the land We're heavy duty So come on let's tell the world We are defenders of the faith

Getaway

Earth Wind And Fire "Spirit"
Beloyd Talyor Peter Cor So you say you tried But you just can't find the pleasure People around you givin' you pressure Try to resist all the hurt that's all Around you If you taste it, it will haunt you So come, take me by the hand, We'll leave this troubled land I know we can, I know we can, I know we can, I know we can Getaway Watch for the signs That lead in the right direction Not to heed them is a bad reflection They'll show you the way Into what you have been seeking To ignore them you're only cheating So come, take me by the hand, We'll leave this troubled land I know we can getaway Getaway Lay awake every night Till the sun comes up in the morning Nothing exciting, it all seems boring Make up your mind which way to go about it To your road, you just don't doubt it. So come, take me by the hand, We'll leave this troubled land I know we can, I know we can, I know we can, I know we can Getaway
