Love is a Beautiful Thing

Mr. Sunshine's Back in Town


I'm back in town, I'm looking for a good time
I'm back in town, I'm looking for some fun
I'm back in town, here comes Mr. Sunshine
I'm back in town and I'm telling everyone

That I'm back in town to find some real excitement
Something that's been missing in my life
'Cause lately when I go out on a Friday
It seems like it's already Sunday night

So tell me, where are all the wild places
I think you know exactly what I mean
Where no one sits and stares at their devices
Or sips decaffeinated cappuccinos

I'm back in town, I'm looking for a good time
I'm back in town, I'm looking for some fun
I'm back in town, here comes Mr. Sunshine
I'm back in town and I'm telling everyone

That I'm looking for some romance and some danger
I'm trying to relive my misspent youth
'Cause every day I feel more like a stranger
Times have changed, I've got to face the truth

But I remember all the wild places
And I remember all the crazy scenes
Where no one sat and stared at their devices
Or sipped decaffeinated cappuccinos

I'm back in town, I'm looking for a good time
I'm back in town, I'm looking for some fun
I'm back in town, they call me Mr. Sunshine
I'm back in town and I'm telling everyone

I'm back in town, I'm looking for a good time
I'm back in town, I'm looking for some fun
I'm back in town, a little ray of sunshine
I'm back in town and I'm telling everyone

I'm back
I'm back in town



Spring Cleaning


She said, "I think it's time from some spring cleaning"
And threw all my belongings on the lawn
Then she said, "I'd like to do some home improvement"
And by summertime, I was gone

She said, "Why do I put up with your nonsense?"
I sensed my days were numbered before long
Then she said, "I think it's time for some spring cleaning"
And by summertime, I was gone

Is this a year-o or a jy-ro
I'm not Greek, how should I know
This is what I've eaten every night this week
I might be becoming Greek

She said, "I think it's time from some spring cleaning"
And threw all my belongings on the lawn
Then she said, "I'd like to do some home improvement"
And by summertime, I was gone

You're a drunk, you're a wino
That's what she said, how should I know
Every night I drink to try to ease the pain
Here's one more sad refrain

She said, "I think it's time from some spring cleaning"
And threw all my belongings on the lawn
Then she said, "I'd like to do some home improvement"
And by summertime, I was gone

By summertime, I was gone
By summertime, I was gone



She Never Put Down Her Phone


All through dinner she never put down her phone
I might as well have been alone
I said, all through dinner she never put down her phone
I might as well have been alone

She was texting and Twittering, instant messaging
Checking on her Facebook friends
Shopping for shoes and discount prescriptions
There's so many e-mails to send

She was checking the weather in Spain and the Netherlands
Reading her favorite blogs
Watching hysterical kitty cat videos
Scrolling through catalogs

Obviously,
It was more interesting than me

All through dinner she never put down her phone
I might as well have been alone
All the way home she never put down her phone
I might as well have been alone

We went to bed, she never put down her phone
I might as well have been alone
I might as well have been alone

She never put down her phone



Love is a Beautiful Thing


Love is a beautiful thing
Love is a beautiful thing
It's pleasure and pain
It's sunshine and rain
Love is a beautiful thing

Love is a moment in spring
A mad, unpredictable thing
And lately it feels
Like our love is real
Love is a beautiful thing

So why
Why would you think that I
Would make you believe a lie
I don't want to see you cry
Any more

Love is our laughter and tears
Love is our hopes and our fears
Love can be cruel
Or totally cool
Love is a beautiful thing

So why
Why would you think that I
Would make you believe a lie
I don't want to see you cry
Any more

Love is a beautiful thing
Love is a beautiful thing
And lately it feels
Like our love is real
Love is a beautiful thing

And lately it feels
Like our love is real
Love is a beautiful thing

Love is a beautiful thing
Love is a beautiful thing



Something Must Be Done


The rich guys take all of the money
And most of the milk and the honey
The rest of us get almost none
Something must be done

The fat cats get fatter and fatter
And climb to the top of the ladder
We're stuck on the bottommost rung
Something must be done

Something must be done before it's too late
Something must be done, 'cause we've been waiting so long
Oh, so long

You sit in your house so suburban
Afraid of a guy in a turban
While your children are playing with guns
Something must be done

And outside it's perpetual summer
We're all getting dumber and dumber
We should not have stood in the sun
Something must be done

Something must be done before it's too late
Something must be done, 'cause we've been waiting so long
Oh, so long

So if you work hard for a living
And you're tired of the scraps that you're given
Don't sit there clicking your tongue
Something must be done

Something must be done



Nobody Cares (Like I Do)


Nobody cares what you're thinking
And nobody cares how you feel
Nobody cares that you're home tonight
Chillin' and keeping it real
And using some stupid expressions
Like chillin' and keeping it real
You and your hip hop vernacular
You think you're pretty spectacular
And millions of people keep track of your
Each and every move

Nobody cares about you
Nobody cares about you
Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Nobody cares about you
Like I do
Nobody cares about you

Nobody cares what you're tweeting
Or how many people you tweet
No one believes when you claim to know
The latest word on the street
I've seen the street that you live on
It's leafy and pleasant and green
So I can see through your transparency
You want to be famous apparently
You missed the big picture inerrantly
You missed the little one too

Nobody cares about you
Nobody cares about you
Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Nobody cares about you
Like I do
Nobody cares about you

In this complicated wired-up world
Sometimes you can feel so small
Like you're not there at all
Like no one's there to catch you when you fall

Nobody wants your opinion
But you go ahead and opine
Opinions are practically worthless
There's millions of them online
Everyone wants to feel special
They want their voice to be heard
The meek, the humble, the unemployed
The bitter, the angry, the paranoid
The freak, the geeks that you must avoid
They have opinions too

And none of them care about you
And none of them care about you
Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Nobody cares about you
Like I do

Nobody cares about you
Nobody cares about you
Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Nobody cares about you
Like I do
Nobody cares about you

Nobody cares, nobody cares
Nobody cares about you



Frolic


I saw you standing on the corner
Oh God, that's such an old cliche
I had the strongest urge to meet you
I had the strangest urge to say

I'd like to frolic in your garden
I'd like to watch your lilacs grow
Explore your valleys and your mountains
I'd like to see your nectar flow

I'd like to navigate your ocean
I'd like to calm your stormy sea
Flow down your lazy, lazy river
And make you fall in love with me

Sometimes I see you in the morning
And in the evening of the day
I dream about you when I'm sleeping
And in my dreams I always say

I'd like to frolic in your garden
I'd like to taste your morning dew
I've got a complicated list of
The things I'd like to do to you

I'd like to pollinate your flower
I'd be a very busy bee
I'll take your hand and maybe some day
I'll make you fall in love with me

I'll take your hand and maybe some day
I'll make you fall in love with me
I'll make you fall in love with me
I'll make you fall in love with me

Oh, won't you fall in love with me



Sixteenth Son


Modern life is such a bore
You want to cry out loud
There's got to be a whole lot more
Then what we're getting now

'Cause everybody's standing still
And I am on the run
I won't be satisfied until
I'm having too much fun

I won't be satisfied until
I'm having too much fun

Anyone who has a heartbeat
Should be with me tonight
Anyone whose pulse is racing
Is doing something right

They tell me I'm the sixteenth son
Of the seventh son
I'm doing what needs to be done
I'm having too much fun

Anyone who has a heartbeat
Should be with me tonight
Anyone whose pulse is racing
Is doing something right

I'll burn the candle at both ends
And I won't be done
Until I hear the voice of God
"You're having too much fun!"

They tell me I'm the sixteenth son
Of the seventh son
I'm doing what needs to be done
I'm having too much fun

I'm doing what needs to be done
I'm having too much fun



I'm The One You Want


I am but a fool
An idiot savant
I'm hopeless as can be
But someday you will see
That I'm the one you want

I'd send you my regards
But I can't choose a font
Or find the proper words
In case you haven't heard
That I'm the one you want

I'm the one who loves you
Heaven knows I do
It obviously should be
Obvious to you

I whisper in your ear
Cool and nonchalant
No, I won't have to shout
The minute you find out
That I'm the one you want

Now, I don't want to beg
And I don't want to plead
But that's exactly what I'll do
To make it clear to you
That I'm the one you need

And if you get possessed
Or your stigmata starts to bleed
If the devil rears his head
Remember what I said
That I'm the one you need

I'm the one who loves you
Heaven knows I do
It obviously should be
Obvious to you

I am but a fool
A total dilettante
I'm useless as can be
But someday you will see
That I'm the one you want

I'm useless as can be
But someday you will see
That I'm the one you want

I'm useless as can be
But someday you will see
That I'm the one you want
I'm the one you want



Can't Forget You


I cannot remember anything I learned in school
I closed my eyes at five years old, woke up at twenty-two
I cannot remember long ago and far away
I can't remember what I had for breakfast yesterday

But I can't forget you
Oh how I've tried to
I can't forget you
It's too hard to do
I can't forget you

If I got amnesia and lost my memory
Wondered through a world that seemed completely strange to me
Then if some large object should come tumbling from the sky
Hit me in the head, I'd cry out your name and die

'Cause I can't forget you
Oh how I've tried to
I can't forget you
It's too hard to do
I can't forget you

I can't forget you
Oh how I've tried to
I can't forget you
It's too hard to do
I can't forget you

I can't forget you
Oh how I've tried to
I can't forget you
It's too hard to do
I can't forget you



Sex & Beer (epic version)


St. Paul in his letter to the Ephesians
Said, "It came to me upon a midnight clear
I finished writing all of my gospel
Now all I seem to want is sex and beer"

Marc Antony looked down on Caesar's body
He said "Friends, Romans, Countrymen, lend me you ear
I did not come here to praise old Caesar
I came here for sex and beer

Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the two things we hold dear
Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the things we like 'round here

George Washington, he never crossed the Delaware
There was no midnight ride for Paul Revere
Ben Franklin never discovered electricity
They were too busy looking for sex and beer

Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the two things we hold dear
Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the things we like 'round here

Charles Dickens gave us "Great Expectations"
Shakespeare gave us "Hamlet" and "King Lear"
Dostoevsky gave us "Crime and Punishment"
Who the hell is gonna give us sex and beer

Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the two things we hold dear
Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the things we like 'round here

From the city to the suburbs to the country
From the Southern to the Northern Hemisphere
They're holding a tremendous referendum
And everybody's choosing sex and beer

Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the two things we hold dear
Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the things we like 'round here

They can take away our pride and our dignity
They can use up all our blood and sweat and tears
They can take away our name and give us numbers
But they can never take away our sex and beer

Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the two things we hold dear
Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the things we like 'round here

Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the two things we hold dear
Sex and beer, sex and beer
Are the things we like 'round here

We like sex and beer and sex and beer
And sex and beer
And sex
And beer



Too Many Tattoos


Too many tattoos, too many tattoos
Well, I love you baby but you've got too many tattoos
They completely cover up the real you
I love you baby but you've got too many tattoos

Too many tattoos, too many tattoos
Well, I love you baby but you've got too many tattoos
And I'm overwhelmed by your wild, exotic views
I love you baby but you've got too many tattoos

On your inner thighs
Are the names of guys
And even I
Can guess what for

But it isn't fair
That my name's not there
I shouldn't care
But I adore you

Too many tattoos, too many tattoos
Well, I love you baby but you've got too many tattoos
And the hardest thing that I will ever do
Is say goodbye to you and your tattoos
Say goodbye to you and your tattoos

Too many tattoos
