Homegrown Tomatoes

Original and similar lyrics
(Clark) There ain't nothing in the world that I like better than bacon and lettuce and homegrown tomatoes. Up in the morning, out in the garden, get you a ripe one, don't pick a hard one. Plant 'em in the spring, eat 'em in the summer. All winter without 'em is a culinary bummer. I forget all about the sweating and the digging every time I go out and pick me a big one. Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes, what would life be without homegrown tomatoes? Only two things that money can't buy and that's true love and homegrown tomatoes. You can go out to eat and that's for sure, but there's nothing a homegrown tomato won't cure. Put 'em in a salad, put 'em in a stew, you can make your own, very own tomato juice. You can eat 'em with eggs, eat 'em with gravy, You can eat 'em with beans, pinto or navy. Put 'em on the side, put 'em in the middle, homegrown tomatoes on a hot cake griddle. Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes, what would life be without homegrown tomatoes? Only two things that money can't buy and that's true love and homegrown tomatoes. If I was to change this life I lead, you could call me Johnny Tomatoseed. 'Cause I know what this country needs is homegrown tomatoes in every yard you see. When I die, don't bury me in a box in a cold dark cemetery. Out in the garden would be much better 'cause I could be pushing up homegrown tomatoes. Homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes, what would life be without homegrown tomatoes? Only two things that money can't buy and that's true love and homegrown tomatoes, homegrown tomatoes, what would life be without homegrown tomatoes? Only two things that money can't buy and that's true love and homegrown tomatoes.

Some Things I Know

James Bonamy "Roots And Wings"
(Burton Collins/Sally Barris) There's some things I know to be true Snow is white and the ocean is blue Rain is wet when it falls from the sky And the stars come out every night Just as I'm sure the sun will rise This love is real you see in my eyes Plant a seed and it will grow Some things I know There's some things in life I need Water to drink and air to breathe A place to rest when I need sleep When I'm hungry food to eat Sure as I need the Lord above That's how much I need your love Like I need shelter from the cold Some things I know More and more I realize How every day you bless my life There's some things in life I want A house with a porch and trees out front Someone to talk to; someone to hold And walk with as we grow old And I want all my dreams to come true And I want them all with you And I just had to tell you so Some things I know I just had to tell you so Some things I know

Long Island Blues

JULIAN CASABLANCAS "Phrazes For The Young"
I see a drug bust in your eyes. There are bruises on your thighs. I can see you're trying to hide All the darkness in your mind. You got sawdust on your toes From that sports bar down the road. You have beer glass in your feet. You say kiss me on the cheek. Some people get paid to talk Some people get paid to listen Some people buy a ticket And can't wait for intermission. Just like some might love you blindly Some might love you with conditions Some will love you like an unloved child Loves family traditions. Now she's tainted by the syringe Try to rhyme a word with orange I'm a cheap and ugly sinner To whose soul love is so foreign. So if you're sideways And if you wanna go my way Before a meteor shower Decides that you should be devoured Whether you're locked up in the tower Or if you charge them by the hour In mama's eyes you were a flower Forget the aftertaste of life gone sour. Will you finish what you started? Travel the seas you never parted Remember things you disregarded Communicate with the departed Believe in things you thought weren't founded Prepare to always be astounded Or keep your dreams and visions grounded It took a while but then I found it. No one inspired you in time So you left your love behind In a world that discourage One who's young and full of courage. You said you'd start at the bottom But instead you start at the top Be careful what you wish for On your lap it just might drop. It's a lonely life at the bottom It can be lonely too at the top Make sure your heart is singing Right until the day it stops. They all say dream But what they mean is be specific or obscene It's time to find some time to fail at makes you most happy. Sometimes you concentrate on lovers To forget everything else Sometimes you hate each other to forget you hate yourself. So if you're sideways And if you wanna go my way Before a meteor shower Decides that you should be devoured Whether you're locked up in the tower Or if you charge them by the hour Tell me you'll always be a flower Forget the aftertaste of life got sour. Will you finish what you started? Before you celebrate with a cigarette Remember things you disregarded Communicate with the departed Prepare to always be astounded Believe in things you thought weren't founded Don't keep those dreams and visions grounded It took a while but now I found it.

Things Money Can Buy

ANGEL HAZE "King"
Don't fuck with me Don't fuck with me Don't fuck with me Don't fuck with me It's like an art exhibit with the thoughts presented article my been documented Stuck on they tongues now I'm in the mouth of critics Niggers sell their souls to stay afloat I'm trying to cop them clearance Cause I need more life they trying to take it from me Saying that I'm going nowhere fast like in place running It's kinda hard to be talking about dreams If they're my reality like I'm walking around sleep I'm just hallicinating My life is too adjacent Good things come to those who wait And I'm too impatient No, I'm too courageous Finger fucking penetrating X-ing out my failures wih the process of elimination That's one by one until there is nothing left But more success followed by more success Creating outlines like two year old traces To these other bitches I'm a human eraser I'm here now Baby your time's up But to gain the world Would I give my mind up Or would I lose my soul Shine instead of glow Could I lose my fucking way Trying to make it along Things money can buy Not my sense of self worth or none of my pride You never make it until you fail and you take it in stride I'm just about to live until death takes me alive Listen with your minds The ears of your thoughts Feel it in your souls Give me the tears of your heart Don't fuck with me Don't fuck with me Don't fuck with me Don't fuck with me Paintbrush to my thoughts Stroking the canvas with my genius Waiting to break through like a full grown fetus Laughing at these bitches while I'm reviewing their grievances Got a sack full of dicks that I've been brewing to feed em I've got lovers whose feelings I pretend to be conscious of And I am until I remember lonely hearts need lots of love I give it to them real whatever the case be Now I don't tie them down because they could never escape free How I'm feeling it's kinda hard to describe It's like standing in a field and being part of the signs Like love them with your body, your heart, your soul and your mind And when the feelings subside, watching part of you die Damn I guess feeling alive I did it on my own So I guess the feeling is mine Still no real friends Still don't trust shit A long list of fuck shit that I don't fuck with My best friend betrayed me Believe me I overtripped Until I learned to build a fucking bridge and get over it Now I believe the power of my own mind, of my moonlight, of my soulshine Things money can buy Not any of the shit that I value inside You never make it until you make it and you fail and you take it in stride So I'm just about to live until death takes me alive See life is a mystery Same thing with history, same thing with misery... it all ends eventually We all live in symmetry, yet still react to the same things differently People are people, we live for our own Live how you think, not by what you've been told Break out the mold, embrace a new form Create a new life, then make it through scorned... There are hearts on the inside with strengths unparalleled There is life and it's cyclic, and it comes like a carousel... You've just got to enjoy the ride... You've just got to enjoy the ride... There are too many things that money can buy There are too many dreams that money can sell But, not enough real... just not enough real

When I Go Down

RELIENT K "MmHmm"
I'll tell you flat out it hurts so much to think of this so from my thoughts I will exclude this very thing that I hate more than everything is the way I'm powerless to dictate my own moods I've thrown away so many things that could've been much more and I just pray my problems go away if they're ignored but that's not the way it works no that's not the way it works when I go down I go down hard and I take everything I've learned and teach myself some disregard when I go down it hurts to hit the bottom and of the things that got me there I think, if only I had fought them If and when I can clear myself of this clouded mind I'll watch myself settle down into a place where peace can search me out and find that I'm so ready to be found I've thrown away the hope I had in friendships I've thrown away so many things that could have been much more I've thrown away the secret to find an end to this and I just pray my problems go away if they're ignored but that's not the way it works no that's not the way it works Any control I thought I had just slips right through my hands while my ever-present conscience shakes its head and reprimands me reprimands me then and there I confess I'll blame all this on my selfishness yet you love me and that consumes me and I'll stand up again and do so willingly You give me hope, and hope it gives me life you touch my heavy heart, and when you do you make it light as I exhale I hear your voice and I answer you, though I heardly make a noise and from my lips the words I choose to say seem pathetic, but it's fallen man's praise because I love you oh God, I love you and life is now worth living if only because of you and when they say I'm dead and gone it won't be further from the truth When I go down I life my eyes up to you I won't look very far cause you'll be there with open arms to lift me up again to life me up again

You Will

ANDY MINEO "Heroes For Sale"
When you see me I'm in uptown baby What you know about me oh Nothing really well let's change that See I came back I took a break but now I break that Formerly known yeah I made that And them Car Tunes every Saturday Eat your breakfast tell 'em, "Play that." Yeah I got lines like bar codes Yeah I got jokes like Bart Simpson on bar phones (Moe's Tavern) are you acting dumb on your smartphone Fishers of men so I stay looking Casting nets like I'm straight Brooklyn Oh your life so hard Why don't you face your problems don't Facebook em Satan try to make the straight crooked With the porn sites but I ain't looking I got bands that'll make her dance That's a wedding ring for my wife – bling Imma say that twice – bling Ladies if you ain't got one Don't give him none true love is waiting And you so worth that I know you heard some bull crap But if you headed down the wrong path Go ahead and turn back You're never too far to be made new They said you damaged goods – that ain't true I testify to that I ain't lying Jack You can check with my whole crew whoop [Chorus] Y-O-U Owe me nothing No nothing [x2] I know you will [x8] I know you will [x2] Even when they say you won't I know you will I know you will [x2] Even when they say you can't I know you will Lord, there's nothing you can't do Nothing in this world too big for you So when they say you can't I know you will [x2] Even when they say you can't I know you will Er eh uhm uhm Some say you can't I say that you will My sinning cost a grip But Jesus paid the bill You don't believe in miracles I show you why they real Some rappers don't got skill But somehow they got a deal. Weird I'm riding around in this airport Flying around on my skateboard And my glasses on like a straight dork Oh your money's tall but these days short I love the haters so I pray for em See them hearts we aim for em So I tell the world that we stay touring And we do it our way, we won't change for em This ain't no fast food (Nope, nope) You can't order us They looking so confused (Heh) What's the formula? We just really want more of God Na we don't want more of us 'Cause He did it we giving Him thanks Even when they ain't awarding us And them strip clubs money drugs C'mon 'cause you boring us We heard it all before And I'm still unimpressed with that sort of stuff We were made for more though With them award shows and you thank Christ That lip service don't mean nothing If you ain't about that life [Chorus] Y-O-U Owe me nothing No nothing [x2] I know you will [x8] I know you will [x2] Even when they say you won't I know you will I know you will [x2] Even when they say you can't I know you will Lord, there's nothing you can't do Nothing in this world too big for you So when they say you can't I know you will [x2] Even when they say you can't I know you will
