  1. Mission Temple Fireworks Stand

    I saw a black man with a bible and a sparkler in his hand.
    He was holding a tent revival and running a firework stand.
    He said the end of the world is coming so you better get on your knees.
    Today bottle rockets are two for one, but salvation's free.

    He said I quit my job at a big church where the milk and money flowed,
    to sell cherry bombs for Jesus in a tent beside the road.
    I ain't in it for the money, most cars pass on by.
    But I pay the rent on New Years and the fourth of July.

    He said fireworks are dangerous. They can blow up in your face.
    So you better read the instructions, light the fuse and get away.
    These things are made in China, so it's easy to see,
    how a man who worships Buddha ain't got no guarantee.

    He said everything I'm selling is all going up in smoke.
    This world is like an atom bomb, it's ready to explode.
    When the trumpet sounds and The Lord comes back I promise you one thing.
    I'll be a human bottle rocket and I'll go out with a bang.
    I'll leave this,

  2. Tarzan And Jane

    Deep in the jungle up in the trees
    Way back in college, 1983
    Living on Pizza and too little sleep
    Just me and my animal friends
    Then in the distance I saw through the leaves
    A creature of beauty like none I had ever seen
    The trouble started when you smiled at me
    And our two worlds came crashing together
    And a true love story began

    (Chorus):
    I am Tarzan you are Jane
    I am the night and you are the day
    We’re like sunshine and rain
    We’re so different from each other
    You are woman, I am man
    You are the sea and I am the land
    And I would not be who I am if I didn’t have you
    If I didn’t have you

    I know that some days we both wonder how
    We ever got together
    We’re still so different now
    But I can’t imagine my life without you
    ‘Cause all those things that make us so different
    Are just what makes us all that we are

    I am Tarzan you are Jane
    I am the night and you are the day
    We’re like sunshine and rain
    We’re so different from each other
    You are woman, I am man
    You are the sea and I am the land
    And I would not be who I am if I didn’t have you
    If I didn’t have you

    I am Tarzan you are Jane
    I am the night and you are the day
    We’re like sunshine and rain
    We’re so different from each other
    You are woman, I am man
    You are the sea and I am the land
    And I would not be who I am if I didn’t have you
    If I didn’t have you

    If I didn’t have you
    If I didn’t have you
    If I didn’t have you

  3. They Don't Understand

    A mother riding on a city bus
    Kids are yelling kicking up a fuss
    Everybody's staring not knowing what she's going through
    Somebody said, Don't you even care?

    Do you let 'em do that everywhere?
    She slowly turned around, looked up and stared
    She said, Please forgive them
    But they've been up all night

    Their father struggled but he finally lost his fight
    He went to heaven
    In the middle of the night
    So please forgive my children

    (They don't understand)
    Everybody's busy with their own situation
    Everybody's lost in their own little world
    Bottled up, hurry it up trying to make a dream come true

    (They don't understand)
    Everybody's living like there ain't no tomorrow
    Maybe we should stop and take a little time
    'Cause you never really know what your neighbor's going through
    (They don't understand)

    A man driving on the interstate
    Slowing down traffic making everybody late
    Everybody's staring not knowing what he's going through
    Somebody hollered from the passing lane

    Yelled out the window, hey ain't got all day
    The old man looked around and caught his eye
    He said, Please forgive me
    You know, it's been a long life

    My wife has passed away and my kids don't have the time
    I've been left all alone
    And it's getting hard to drive
    So please forgive me children

    (They don't understand)
    Everybody's busy with their own situation
    Everybody's lost in their own little world
    Bottled up, hurry it up trying to make a dream come true

    (They don't understand)
    Everybody's living like there ain't no tomorrow
    Maybe we should stop and take a little time
    'Cause you never really know what your neighbor's going through
    (They don't understand)

    A man hanging on a wooden cross
    Giving everything to save the lost
    Everybody's staring not knowing what He's going through
    Somebody said, You don't have a prayer

    If You were keen, you'd come down from there
    The man just turned His head looked up and stared

    He said, Please forgive them
    For they have not seen the light
    They'll come to know me when I come back to life
    Go to heaven to make everything all right
    So please forgive Your children

    (They don't understand)
    Everybody's busy with their own situation
    Everybody's lost in their own little world
    Bottled up, hurry it up trying to make a dream come true

    (They don't understand)
    Everybody's living like there ain't no tomorrow
    Maybe we should stop and take a little time
    'Cause you never really know what your neighbor's going through

    (They don't understand)
    A mother riding on a city bus
    Kids are yelling kicking up a fuss
    Everybody's staring not knowing what she's going through


  4. With You Daddy

    I asked my dad how did he quit smoking
    He said, "Son one day I saw you tokin" on a
    Half smoked cigarette, he left laying by his tools

    He said I couldn't have been more than nine or ten
    When I looked at him with a cat eating grin, and said
    "Look at me daddy, I'm the Marlboro man, just like you."

    I did my best to step in every footprint daddy made
    I'd stretch my legs as far as they'd go
    Chase after him and say

    Chorus:
    With you daddy, take me with you daddy
    Everywhere you're going to, I just wanna be with you
    Right with you daddy, don't leave me daddy
    Don't you know that's right where I belong

    Six weeks shy of twenty-one
    Daddy called and said I got some bad news son
    Doctor says I ain't got very long and
    I ain't told your mama yet

    I said, "Daddy I'll be on the next flight home
    That ain't the kind of news you ought to break alone
    I didn't break down 'til I hung up the phone
    (*)Damn them cigarettes

    He put his big old arms around me
    the moment I stepped off the plane
    He said, "Son you didn't have to come"
    All that I could say

    Chorus:
    With you daddy, take me with you daddy
    Everywhere you're going to, I just wanna be with you
    Right with you daddy, don't leave me daddy
    Don't you know that's right where I belong

    Bridge
    Daddy wasn't conscious the last three days of his life
    But I stayed there right beside his bed
    And I cried like a baby, but I knew he'd be alright
    When he smiled and whispered, "Oh my God"
    Reached out his hand and said

    Chorus:
    With you daddy, take me with you daddy
    Everywhere you're going to, I just wanna be with you
    Right with you daddy, don't leave me daddy
    Don't you know that's right where I belong
     

  5. Your Faith

    When I can’t quite see the light
    It’s like I’m running in sand
    I get down oh so down, don’t feel like much of a man
    but every time I slip and fall and you reach out your hand

    Your faith in me
    Is all I ever wanted
    All I ever need
    My love will be
    Standing side by side there rivaling your faith
    My love will be rivaling your faith in me

    With your arms wrapped around me tight
    Tell me what more do I need
    I get busted, bruised and busted
    I cry, I hurt and I bleed
    Then your healing comes up on me
    I look thru my tears at your faith

    Your faith in me
    Is all I ever wanted
    All I ever need
    My love will be
    Standing side by side there rivaling your faith
    My love will be rivaling your faith in me

    And the more I learn about livin’
    The more I know I need your faith
    Your faith in me, in me

    Your faith in me
    Is all I ever wanted
    All I ever need
    My love will be
    Standing side by side there rivaling your faith
    My love will be rivaling your faith in me

    My love will be rivaling your faith in me

  6. Keep Your Hands To Yourself

    I got a little change in my pocket going jingle lingle ling
    Want to call you on the telephone baby I give you a ring
    But each time we talk I get the same old thing
    Always no huggin no kissin until I get a wedding ring
    My honey my baby don’t put my love upon no shelf
    She said don’t give no lies and keep your hands to yourself

    Cruel baby baby baby why you want to treat me this way
    You know I’m still your lover boy I still feel the same way
    That’s when she told me a story ’bout free milk and a cow
    And she said no huggin no kissin until I get a wedding vow
    My honey my baby don’t put my love upon no shelf
    She said don’t hand me no lies and keep your hands to yourself

    You see I wanted her real bad and I was about to give in
    That’s when she started talkin’ true love started talkin’ about sin
    I said honey I’ll live with you for the rest of my life
    She said no huggin no kissin until you make me your wife
    My honey my baby don’t put my love on no shelf
    She said don’t hand me no lies and keep your hands to yourself.

  7. Ole' Kentuck

    Run through the hills and run through the bushes
    Take that ride down an ole dirt road
    Gone to long from ole’ Kentucky
    Slow down turn around I gotta go

    (Chorus)

  8. All I Want Is You

    It’s in the way you look at me
    You must see something I don’t see
    But I’m a man and I can say
    I’d be half a man if you went away
    Standing here by your side
    What I feel when I look in your eyes

    All I want is you
    You’re the dream for me that just keeps coming true
    Don’t you know you loving me is everything that I need
    All I want is you
    All I want is you

    I even love the way you say my name
    It’s the little things that make me feel this way
    You make every day better and if I can
    I want you to understand
    Why you are my every need
    Want you to know
    With every breath that I breathe

    All I want is you
    You’re the dream for me that just keeps coming true
    Don’t you know you loving me is everything that I need
    All I want is
    All I want and All I need
    Me with you, you with me
    Against the wind against the odds
    Standing strong through it all

    All I want is you
    You’re the dream for me that just keeps coming true
    Don’t you know you loving me is everything that I need
    All I want is you
    All I want is you

  9. One Little Heartbeat At A Time

    You’re up all night with a screaming baby
    You run all day at the speed of light
    Everyday you feel a little bit less
    Like the beautiful woman you are

    So you fall into bed when you run out of hours
    And you wonder if anything worth doing got done
    Well maybe you just don’t know
    Maybe you’ve forgotten that you

    You, are changing the world
    One little heartbeat at a time
    Making history with every touch and every smile
    Oh you may not see it now
    But I believe that time will tell how you
    You are changing the world
    One little heartbeat at a time

    With every I know you can do it
    With every tear that you kiss away
    So many little things seem to go unnoticed
    But just like the drops of rain down the line
    Baby come a river

    You, you are changing the world
    One little heartbeat at a time
    Making history with every touch and every smile
    Oh you may not see it now
    But I believe that time will tell how you
    You are changing the world
    One little heartbeat at a time

    You, you are changing the world
    One little heartbeat at a time
    Making history with every touch and every smile
    Oh you may not see it now
    But I believe that time will tell how you
    You are changing the world

    Oh girl you are changing the world
    One little heartbeat at a time

  11. There Was A Time

    I hear you calling my name
    The sweet sounds of yesterday
    When there was love and I was in it
    Oh but seeing you this way
    I hear the words I didn’t say
    I see it way too late

    There was a time I used to hold you
    I should have told you
    There was a time
    I see your face, and it reminds me
    There was a place
    There was - there was a time

    We’re here and all I can think of is the way we used to be
    How could I take for granted
    The chance you took on me
    You with your heart out on your sleeve
    The heart that I still need

    There was a time I used to hold you
    I should have told you
    There was a time
    I see your face, and it reminds me
    There was a place
    There was - there was a time

    They say time changes everything
    Time never stays the same
    So tell me why do I still feel this way

    There was a time I used to hold you
    I should have told you
    There was a time
    I see your face, and it reminds me
    There was a place
    There was - there was a time

  12. Tryin' To Find (A Way To Make It Last)

    He keeps his mouse ears hangin’ on the post of his bed
    So he can put em on and live it all again in his head
    All the rides and parades it was such a great day
    Now my little man won’t let it go he’s

    Tryin’ to find a way to make it last
    Tryin’ to make it last forever
    It’s a matter of time, if you seek you will find a way to make it last

    I brought you flowers and you knocked me out with that first kiss
    We said forever, we would have a love like this
    And if you’ll take a look in the guiness book
    We’ll go down in history

    Tryin’ to find a way to make it last
    Tryin’ to make it last forever
    It’s a matter of time, if you seek you will find a way to make it last

    I talked to an old man and he’d been down on his knees,
    Said he learned who to turn to
    And where it all leads

    Tryin’ to find a way to make it last
    Tryin’ to make it last forever
    It’s a matter of time, if you seek you will find a way to make it last

    Tryin’ to find a way
    Tryin’ to find a way to make it last
    Tryin’ to find a way to make it last
    We’re all tryin’ to find a way to make it last
