IF YOU WANT A BOOM        (C)J.Birch 1998.

                 

          Do you remember when you were blue

          & you didn't know what to do

          Do you remember what you did

          To get rid of it

 

          You played a little bit of jazz

          You played a little bit of that classical razzamatazz

          The beatles and beethoven

          A symphony and a song

 

          Well sometimes you must admit

          You do get sick of it

          Those same old discs

          It really hard to make them fit , isn't it ?

 

          Now some people say

          It has got to be a symphony

          But I say they are wrong

          I say , "It has got to be a NEW song."

 

          If you had stayed a monkey

          You wouldn't have

          Ever , ever , ever

          Had the money

 

          And if you want a boom

          Then you

          Have to , have to , have to

          Play the NEW tune

 

          But you play a little bit of jazz

          You play a little bit of that classical razzamatazz

          The beatles and beethoven

          A symphony and a song

 

          Well I think you are wrong

 

          If you want a boom

          Then you

          Have to , have to , have to

          Play the NEW tune

 

          Cuz' if you stay a monkey

          Then you wont

          Ever , ever , ever

          Have the money !

        

          I may be right

          I may be wrong

          A symphony AND a song ?

  GREEDY FEEDS NEEDY            (C)j.Birch 2005.

 

 

  Sometimes she gets the blues

  So she looks around her for some happy news

  Then down on the corner by the liquor stand

  She sees the downtrodden man

 

  So she goes out and she buys a brand new house

  And she goes out and she buys a computer with a brand new mouse

  For she knows that only greed will feed

  The folks who are in need

 

  He gets in the car and he's watchin the skirt

  Her emotion soothes his soul and ease his hurt

  Then down on the corner by the liquor stand

  He sees the downtrodden man

 

  So he goes out and he buys a brand new house

  And he goes out and he buys a computer with a brand new mouse

  For he knows that only greed will feed

  The folks who are in need

 

  For twenty years I've had a disease

  You folks gave me the medicine that I need

  If it weren't for you I wouldn't have been alive

  So I'd like to thank you with these lines

 

  You deserve a big, big house

  Go out and buy yourself that computer with a brand new mouse

  For you deserve to be as rich as you can

  So says the downtrodden man

 

  So says the downtrodden man

  So says the downtrodden man

  Yeah
