Exposure to Living Shee looks like a little dolly all tattered and torn at the seams No one can reach her cause her gaze is fixed on her dreams The beauty of her creases has been worn by the harshness of men Exposure to living has colored her hair and her skin Chorus: But I like her, I like her, I like her O.K. Her dog has been traveling with her, more faithful than any man He too looks the worst for wear, but he still has some teeth to chew His coat is kind of mangy, and his bark is kind of hoarse Exposure to living let’s nature take it’s coarse But I like him, I like him, I like him O.K. Instrumental The car that she drives is yellow, more reliable than any man One seat for her one seat for her dog, and an engine that just won’t quit The trunk holds all her belongings and it barely closes shut Exposure to living, has left it full of rust But I like it, I like it, I like it O.K. And I like her, I like her, I like her dog O.K.

Big Trucks Runnin’n across my head. X2 Big trucks, Motor Freight. Big Trucks Runnin’ across my head. There’s a long train of thought runnin across my mind x2 I’m sure it’ll get here, but I’m not one to say that is always right on time. There’s a long train of thought runnin across my mind. Arrival time can be calculated by ascertaining the distance between the city of serious and the town of sublime. There’s a long train of thought runnin across my mind x2 This is the nature of transportation, when the things that move us don’t let us down. How fast for how long can we go the distance. Between here and there and from town to town town to town!! You can travel time in the flash of an instinct. And dash across logic like a skater on ice. I have to warm up before I start out. But anything you can do I can do twice. This is the nature of transportation, when the things that move us don’t let us down. How fast for how long can we go the distance. Between here and there and from town to town town to town to town!! Town to town to town to town to town!!

Little Sister Little Sister in Your dreams I can’t awaken you Little sister in this sleep that has kidnapped you In your beauty rest your spirit voices call Run and play while innocence is free Little Sister Little sister this waking world is not for you It’s on that highway in your mind that begs you to come As you close your eyes these two worlds collide But in your dreams your eyes are open wide Little Sister Playing in the skies I see movement in your eyes as you dance away from me. Sleeping beauty, Cinderella, Snow White have nothing over you Your fairy tale has no beginning and no end Mumble a word, try to catch the sun and all it’s rays Your charming prince has come to light up all your days Little Sister

Sweet as Honey I hear you callin’, callin my name It’s as sweet as honey, It’s as sweet as honey I see you walkin’, Up my lane Sweet as honey, sweet as honey There is no sacharine in this love It comes from the bees in the trees And the sweet Lord above, it’s as sweet as honey I like to kiss you all over your face It’s sweet as honey, sweet as honey I like to make some Love any time any place It’s as sweet as honey, sweet as honey This is no high fructose No Nutrasweet No diet pepsi, cause baby when our lips meet It’s as sweet as honey I smell the flowers in your hair It’s as sweet as honey I feel the flame that burns between two souls It’s as sweet as honey

There are many ways to suffer Not all good by out ward signs Different ways of goin’ insane Not always plain to the naked eye You can sit there stewin stewin in your pew Not even aware of what else could happen to you I see you baring your personal cross Crucify yourself, until your mind is lost You think you got it bad, Well someones got it worse Well ya say you can’t find your calling, But you sure did find your curse So Chop up your pity I said chop up your pity I said chop up all your self pity Chop it up Well you can fall in love Or you could fall off a cliff It’s all the same to me They both make my body stiff You can’t blame me You can’t even blame you That’s just the way things go When you go snoopin’ for the truth So Chop up your pity I said chop up your pity I said chop up all your self pity Chop it up There are many ways to suffer Not all good by out ward signs Different ways of goin’ insane Not always plain to the naked eye Not always plain to the naked eye Not always plain to the naked eye Not always plain to that naked naked eye

People Places and Things Just give me the words to go on And I’ll be on my way Life is crowded with thoughts disturbed by People, places and things Spent most of my livin days Tryin’ to make me a plan Struggle to get from point A to B Just as fast as I can So ya say your prayers and you keep the faith Ya think of how hard you try But for now you can go to work Have all your dreams on the side I think I understand why Everyone seems so afraid They hear a voice inside that tells it like it is And spend their whole life runnin’ away My only reason now seems to be To find me some love and some peace Let it all hang out and let it in But let it begin with me

Eye to Eye Given some time you can tell Tell me about yourself You’ve been thrown out and don’t fit in Your soul’s on your feet and it’s wearing thin On a summer’s evening the katydids did sing You were tellin’ me your problems, I didn’t hear a thing I had a day dream about your face your nose was ten feet high Your breath foggin up my glasses And we couldn’t see eye to eye No we couldn’t see eye to eye We couldn’t see eye to eye No matter how we tried We couldn’t see eye to eye No we could see eye to eye We couldn’t see eye to eye Now I’m feelin’ out of place My hands are runnin through my hair Hangin on for my life Tellin’ myself not to stare On a cold and rainy autumn afternoon I saw you sooner than you knew I did Our minds were strangers but our eyes were in your bed Breath foggin up my glasses But we couldn’t see eye to eye No we couldn’t see eye to eye We couldn’t see eye to eye No matter how we tried

The Sun is Blue The sun is blue Staring down in solar frustration Not far above It’s looking straight into your eyes With a long sigh of boredom A slight twinge of pain The air seems heavy With no sign of rain Those clouds are gray With dust rising up to the sky Defining rays Of daylight that magnifies each speck Now the light may seem dingy Because all my shades are pulled There’s a clown in the closet Who’s getting very old The silent moon His mouth gaping wide with surprise A veil of mist Can’t wipe the tears from her cheek And with this painful expression It’s no coincidence If we could see the sun smiling Would it all make any sense?

Marjorie Can I be expected Expected at your house tonight Can I be elected To kiss you one more time Your eyes……..slip into my pocket Your hair was mine……. To save in an envelope You wash it , you brush it, you want it to shine And I know that it’s mine The dresses that you wear I gave to you Last year for your birthday When you were just about twenty three Oh Marjorie I always loved you Your eyes slip into my pocket Your hair was mine I put it in an envelope, but I lost it If you were here today I’d like to play Some songs I learned in your honor And you’d sing along And we’d go off in the sunset in my car together OOOOOO, OOOOOOO, OOOOOOOO But I lost it
