Track Name: Mr Sunshine
MR SUNSHINE

Hey Mr Sunshine you make me happy when my skies are grey
Hey Mr Sunshine say it’s always gonna be this way ...

Hey Mr Sunshine your morning light it helps to guide my way
Mr Sunshine, you brighten up even the darkest day

When I’m feelin’ blue, you know what to do
Come on & shine. make everything fine
And say you’ll always be around …

Hey Mr Sunshine you dapple shadows down a country lane
Mr Sunshine you make a rainbow after pouring rain

When I’m feelin’ blue, you know what to do
Just come on & shine, make everything fine
And say you’ll always be around …

Come on, come on, shine on me
Say you'll always be around
Track Name: Bob Dylan Said That
BOB DYLAN SAID THAT

It’s a long ride when you’re not sure where you’re going
You can ask directions but there’s no way of knowing
What’s the right turn or where to get off
You have all the answers to find out on your own
'Cause there’s a reason why you are where you are
Gotta keep moving, keep moving on
Yes there’s a reason why you are who you are

And we are stuck in a mobile standing at the turnstiles
Gotta roll with the punches to get your free lunch
“It takes a lot to laugh, takes a train to cry”
Bob Dylan said that , I don’t know why!

Yes, it’s a big drag, all your eggs in one basket
Living on a shoe string, taking things for granted
You’ve got one life to do with what you want
You can have it all but how much do you want it?

And we are stuck in a mobile standing at the turnstiles
Gotta roll with the punches to get your free lunch
"It takes a lot to laugh, takes a train to cry"
Bob Dylan said that, I don’t know why!

Yes, we are stuck in a moment staring from the touchlines
Wasting our time, fast forward rewind
“Life is no rehearsal, we’re all universal”
I said that

Stuck in a moment staring from the touchlines
Wasting our time, fast forward rewind
“Life is no rehearsal, we’re all universal”
I said that
Track Name: Make A Better Day
MAKE A BETTER DAY

Not getting stuck with this, no, no
Offer something better
Ain't going to play your games no more
Blame it on the weather

'Cause we've been messed around
And we've been sold out
So count me out, this is no win
Open your eyes, look at the state we're in

Another tainted bitter pill
Another blatant broken promise
Sometimes it's hard to spot the truth
When no-one's being honest

Yes, we've been messed around
And we've been sold out
So count me out, this is no win
Open your eyes, look at the state we're in

Open your eyes, look at the state we're in
Open your eyes

We can't give up, we won't give up
We can't give up, we won't give up
We won't give up, we can't give up
We won't give up, we can't give up

So try we will again
And rise we will again
I'm asking Please
Get up off your knees

Come on, let's make a better day
Sha-la-la-la

Come on, let's make a better day
Sha-la-la-la

Come on, let's make that day
Come on and make that day

Come on, let's make a better day
Sha-la-la-la
Track Name: She Makes Me Feel Alright
SHE MAKES ME FEEL ALRIGHT

She makes me feel alright ...

She picks me up when I am down
And with a smile she turns me round
When in a fix she helps me out
Yeah, I like having her around

And when the road is long
She makes a flask and comes along
We went to London, not to see the Queen
To buy a broken-down machine

When I’m on the verge of losing it
She says: "Well, just go out there and try and write a hit!
Don’t make it too long, just write a Pop song"
So this one’s for you ....

She makes me feel alright ...

When I’m on the verge of giving up
She tells me I haven’t given enough
Down on my luck, you pick me up
So this one’s for you ...

She makes me feel alright ...
Track Name: Angels & Neil Diamond
ANGELS & NEIL DIAMOND

When we were young …

Heading ‘Way Out West’ which was the top of the street
We would ride in the road, side by side
Jam jars & fishing nets tied to our backs
‘Til we got to the stream by the railway track

And the days would last forever
And the sun would shine
And nothing seemed to matter
In the broad daylight
Mum said: “Be back for 5!”
But we never were
Yet we still got that ice-cream for dessert

When we were young …

One crazy, hazy sunny day in the back yard
We had the idea to go deep sea diving
So Mum cleaned out the bins, filled them up with water
Sporting lemonade tanks, we just jumped right in

And then we rode to the park like ‘The Three Amigos’
The last one there had to go in goals
Dermot fought the ‘Boxer’, Dez’s ‘Grifter’ flew
And me I rode my ‘Chopper’ with the crossbar gearbox

When we were young …

Then Dad got sick, we didn’t know what to do
But Mum held it together because she had to
Then one day the phone rang and I just knew
That the angels and Neil Diamond had pulled him through

We weren't so young …
When we were young...
So young, a long, long time ago
Track Name: Cherry, Cherry
CHERRY, CHERRY

Baby loves me, yes, yes, she does
Ahh, the girl's outta sight, yeah
She says she loves me, yes, yes, she does
Gonna show her tonight, yeah

She got the way to move me, Cherry
She got the way, Cherry, baby, alright

Tell your Mama, girl, I can't stay long
We've got things we gotta catch up on
Mmm, you know, you know what I'm sayin'
Can't stand still while the music is playin'

You ain't got no right, no, no, you don't
Ahhh, to be so exciting
We won't need bright lights, no, no, we won't
Gonna make our own lightning

She got the way to move me, Cherry
She got the way to groove me
Cherry, baby, alright

No, we won't tell a soul where we're going to
Girl, we do whatever we want to
Ahhh, I love the way that you do me
Cherry, babe, you really got to me

She got the way to move me, Cherry
She got the way to groove me
Cherry, baby, alright

She got the way to move me, Cherry
She got the way to groove me
Cherry, baby, alright

Alright, alright now ...
Track Name: Good Times
GOOD TIMES

Storm clouds blowing over
Red skies to my west
Got a four-leaf clover
Tattoed on my chest
And it won't be long ...

Spending all my money
No more rainy days
Got to get it while you can
Live from day to day, yeah
'Cause it won't be long ...
No it won't be long ...

Good times, here they come
Had enough of bad times
I can feel the sunshine ...

Beloved, fill my cup that spills
Today of past regrets
The Sultan's reign is over
For seven thousand years
But that's not been long ...

Gotta get my freak on
Gonna seize the day
Climbing every mountain
Standing in my way
'Cause it won't be long ...
No, it won't be long ...

I can feel the sunshine ...

Good times, here they come
Had enough of bad times
I can feel the sunshine ...
Track Name: Summer Days
SUMMER DAYS

I've spent all summer days driving
I'm tired of holidays ruined
No more take-aways, expired food
I need a real day

Time runs faster when you're loaded
Bright lights blind me all weak
Living in the city, I'm a high speed drill
I need a full day diving

Tons of heavyweight food
Roosters from the Sister Islands too
I better get working

I'm bored with all the brainwashing
Let's break all separate rooms
Changing's no fun if you don't want to
I need a good day sailing

To tell the sun and the moon
That I am turning for no reasons too
And I keep waiting

Driving to the gas station
Caught by a traffic jam blues
Life is nonsense, I don't have a clue
I need a cool day riding

Feeding all the horses at dawn
Searching for the truffles, going through the woods
Then I'll be waiting ...
I need a full day

I've spent all summer days driving
I'm tired of holidays ruined
No more take-aways, expired food
I need a full day driving

Tons of heavyweight food
Roosters from the Sister Islands too
I better get working
Track Name: If Ignorance Is Bliss
IF IGNORANCE IS BLISS

Oh, if ignorance is bliss then why do we seek knowledge?
Oh, where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise!
If ignorance is bliss, then why aren't people happy?
Oh, if ignorance is bliss, we should feel happy all the time, so ...

Why are you so sad? ...

Oh, if chivalry is dead, then why am I upstanding?
They say that chivalry is dead, I'm still impelled to hold a door!
But if chivalry's alive then why are we so lonely?
Good manners maketh the man yet I feel such a bore, oh ...

Why are you so sad? ...

You win, you lose, you try again
You live, you love, you try again
You make your bed and lie in it ...
Track Name: Drive You Home
DRIVE YOU HOME

I wanted to drive you home, to drive you home, to drive you home
But you were not alone
I wanted to drive you home, to drive you home, to drive you home ...

I wanted to say goodbye, to say goodbye, to say goodbye
I wanted to say goodbye, to say good bye, to say goodbye

Sometimes things don’t work out the way you want them to,
Sometimes things don’t work out
No, sometimes things don’t work out the way you want them to
Sometimes things don’t work out

No, sometimes things don’t work out the way you want them to
Sometimes things don’t work out
Sometimes life don’t work out the way you want it to
Sometimes it don’t work out

Sometimes it don’t work out!
Track Name: Morning Star
MoRNinG STaR

Sometimes I wake and can't even remember my name
Four in the morning I'm walking these streets once again
Feel like I spend most my life in a dream
Finding it hard to distinguish between
All these chancers and Muppets
Good folk and false prophets

Are you the Morning Star shining for everyone?

Stock up on coffee and fake news to get through the day
Not sure where we're going but where there's a will there's a way

The North is too barren
The South is too stressed
The East is divided
The West is the best

So let's head for the hills and just see what comes our way

Are you the Morning Star shining for everyone?

Shine on, shine on ...
