Track Name: Fast, Cheap, or Well Done
Mama always said, “Nothing in life is free,
except advice from relatives ‘bout what you need to be.”
So you either gotta make a deal,
Or you’re gonna beg, cheat, and steal
Now how’s that gonna make your mama feel?

CHORUS
It’s either fast, cheap, or well done
Fast, cheap, or well done
It’s either fast cheap, or well done
Fast, cheap, or well done
You’ve gotta pick two, that’s the way they do
It’s either fast, cheap, or well done

My Daddy always said, “The economy is going south,
and it’s a shame that your generation’s gonna get pushed out.”
So unless you want to drive a car
With just three wheels, and play a broken guitar…
You better pay, you better wait, you better wish upon a star
‘Cause it you don’t have the cash
Then you better have the time, or you’re gonna get the trash
‘Cause things ain’t made like they were in the past

CHORUS

Time ain’t on your side
You better run, you better hide, you better take my advice
Oh, they’ll give you hell
So if you want it done right, you better do it all yourself!

CHORUS

You gotta pick two
You gotta pick two
You gotta pick two
You gotta pick two
…or they’ll give you hell!
Track Name: Love You To Life
I love you more than I did yesterday, yesterday, yesterday
I love you more than I did yesterday
Cause yesterday you kind of pissed me off

I need you now more than I needed you then, needed you then, more then I needed you then
I need you now more than I needed you then
Cause yesterday you kind of pissed me off

CHORUS
Because you are an emotional rollercoaster
And I am tall enough to ride
You say that you’ll love me to death
But I’m gonna love you to life

I want you more than I did yesterday, yesterday, yesterday
I want you more than I did yesterday
Cause yesterday you kind of pissed me off

I adore you more than I did back then, more than I did back then, more than I did back then
I adore you more than I did back then
Cause yesterday you kind of pissed me off

CHORUS

love you more than I did yesterday, yesterday, yesterday
I love you more than I did yesterday
Cause yesterday you REALLY pissed me off
Track Name: Callin' My Name
You don’t know what I know
And I don’t know about you
The way it goes, the way it flows, it ain’t easy in these boots
I wake up every morning
Feel the sunlight burn my eyes
Last night’s music hung me over
And today is the reprise
There’s some days that I hate it
but there’s some days that I love
Thats why I would never trade it
For the moon and the stars above, above, above

CHORUS
It’s the lights callin, the lights are callin my name.
It’s the stage callin, the stage callin, and I’m stuck in this game
Its the road callin, the road is callin my name
Its the night callin, the night callin, and I’m stuck in this game

There’s a song that’s always playing
Dancing round inside my head
And the thing it’s always saying
Is to sing this song instead…
…of just doing what they told you
Working at that nine to five
In the end they’ll only scold you
For just keeping your dream alive, alive, alive

CHORUS

These lights are taking me somewhere
These nights are getting me somewhere
These heights are bringing me to the sky
These lights are taking me somewhere
These nights are getting me somewhere
These heights are bringing me to the sky

It’s the lights callin, the lights are callin my name.
It’s the stage callin, the stage callin, and I’m stuck in this game
Its the road callin, the road is callin my name
Its the night callin, the nighttime’s callin, and I’m stuck in this game
I’m stuck in this game
I’ll never leave this game
No, no, no
Track Name: 'Til The Well Runs Dry
You never miss the water
Til your well runs dry
I never missed you, daddy
Til you said bye bye

Try me one more time
Try me one more time

I’m alone, so alone
I'm just about
To lose my mind

I took your love for granted
And I did you wrong
Now I want you baby
You’ve been gone so long

Try me one more time
Try me one more time
I can’t eat, can’t sleep, I’m just about to lose my mind

Til the well runs dry
Til the well runs dry
You know you never miss your water
Til the well runs dry
(uh oh, no water)

When I saw you, baby
And you looked so fine
All I could say was
That you used to be mine
Try me one more time
Oh, try me one more time
I’m alone, so alone and I’m just about to lose my mind, yeah

Til the well runs dry
Til the well runs dry
You know you never miss your water
Til the well runs dry
(uh oh, no water)

When I saw you, baby
And you looked so fine
All I could say was
That you used to be mine
I just sigh, cry
I’m just about to lose my mind

I took your love for granted
And I did you wrong
Now I want you baby
You’ve been gone so long

Try me one more time
Try me one more time
I’m alone, so alone
I’m just about to lose my mind

Til the well runs dry
Til the well runs dry
You know you never miss your water
Til the well runs dry
(uh oh, no water)

When I saw you, baby
And you looked so fine
All I could say was
That you used to be mine
Can't eat, can't sleep
Just about to lose my mind
Track Name: I'm Yours
I sit around, I watch you play, I want to say oh baby, oh baby
We lay in bed, I touch your face, I want to say oh baby, oh baby, I’m yours
Baby, I’m yours

Open the window, feel the breeze upon your skin, oh baby
I take my heart, I rent it out for you to real cheap, oh baby
Baby, I’m yours

CHORUS
I want us to climb to the top of the tallest mountain
Just so we could look down and see how far we could go
And I want to sit on the porch and drink cheap beer with you
And I want to swim, until it’s too cold to swim anymore

Go to a show, get on the stage, I want to say oh baby, oh baby
I sing a song, you do the sound, I want to say oh baby, oh baby I’m yours
Baby I’m yours
Go round the block, up to your place, you lay me down, oh baby, oh baby
Been a long day, I know, but its ok, I’m here for sure, baby.
Oh baby, I’m yours

CHORUS

Through dark and smokey rooms I’ve seen you laughing
And on a bright and sunny day I’ve watched you cry
But through all of this, I still want your kiss, oh baby
Cause when you’re touching me, you make me feel alive

CHORUS

I sit around, I watch you play, I want to say oh baby, oh baby
I take my heart, I rent it out to you for reach cheap, oh baby, oh baby, I’m yours
Baby, I’m yours
Baby, I’m yours
I’m yours
Track Name: Dr. Bartender
Hey Bartender
Pass me a drink
The reason that I'm here
Is I need time to think
All the ways of the world
Have really got me down
And now I'm asking you
To turn my frown around

But you’re not my lover
You’re not my friend
You’re not my baby
You ain’t never been
No you don’t know me
You don’t pay my rent
You’re my bartender
So let me vent

CHORUS
All your years of school have led to this
My PHD mixologist
Dr. Bartender
Dr. Bartender
Now I need your remedy
Prescription for my misery
Dr. Bartender
Dr. Bartender

Hey bartender
Sing me a song
The reason that I'm here
Is cause he did me wrong
All the ways of the world
Have really messed me up
And now I'm asking you
To fill up my cup

But you’re not my lover
You’re not my friend
You’re not my baby
You ain’t never been
No you don’t know me
You don’t pay my rent
You’re my bartender
So let me vent

CHORUS

Hey bartender…
Track Name: This Is What I've Got
I may not drive a fancy car
I couldn’t pay the bill
I may not have a picket fence
And I bet I never will
I may not have a diamond ring
Or go to fancy restaurants
But I’ve got things that money can’t buy
And this is what I’ve got

I travel round the country playing music
With the true love of my life and my good friends
If time was up and I would go tomorrow
id smile knowing this is how it ends

I may not have a tiny waist
I’ve got a tiny bank account
I may not have much couth or grace
But I know what living is about
I may not have a flat screen
Or sail a thirty-nine foot yacht
But I’ve got thing that can’t be bought
And this is what I’ve got

I wake up in the morning when I want to
And I go to bed whenever I feel tired
I stay out late not worrying about tomorrow
And I write a song whenever I’m inspired

I may not drive a fancy car
I couldn’t pay the bill
I may not have a picket fence
And I hope I never will
Track Name: I'm The One
I don't wanna know about those other gals you've been with
(I'm the one for you)
I don't wanna know about those other gals you've been with
(I'm the one for you)

Did she walk the mile?
Did she make you smile?
Did she want romance?
Did she like to dance?
Could she sing a song,
and go all night long? ….NO
Cause I'm the one for you

I don't wanna know about those other guys you've been with
(I'm the one for you)
I don't wanna know about those other guys you've been with
(I'm the one for you)

Did he hold the door?
Did you beg for more?
Was he in a band?
Did he hold your hand?
Did he like to smoke?
Could he tell a joke?…..NO
Cause I'm the one for you

I don't wanna know about those other ones you've been with
(I'm the one for you)
I don't wanna know about those other ones you've been with
(I'm the one for you)

Did they make you swoon?
Could they keep a tune?
Did they laugh out loud?
Did they make you proud?
Did the fit the glove?
Did you fall in love?…..NO
Cause I'm the one for you!
Track Name: Working Man's Tools
They can take my time
They might break the key
But don’t try to steal my hard earned luck
Cause you can’t take that away form me

They might take what’s yours
Or what was meant to be
But don’t touch my pride
Don’t steal my life
Cause you can’t take that away form me

CHORUS
Who taught you to take from others
What is not rightfully yours?
Don’t underestimate the consequence
Of getting between a working man’s tools
And what he needs them for

You might get away
For at least another day
But don’t count your stars
You aint getting far
And eventually you’re gonna pay
Until then I’m gonna soar
With my pedal to the floor
You can try to daunt me
But it won’t haunt me
I’ll always come back for more

CHORUS

When the time is right
and the stakes are high
Into the deep, dark night I’m gonna fly
I’m gonna get mine, gonna get mine, I’m gonna get mine

And when the time is wrong
And the stakes are low
I’m gonna sing this song
And I will let you know
I’m gonna get mine, gonna get mine, I’m gonna get mine

CHORUS

Thou shall not steal
How would you feel?
Thou shall not steal
How would you feel?
Track Name: Luckiest Girl In Town (the wedding song)
LUCKIEST GIRL IN TOWN (THE WEDDING SONG)
This day, this day, this day, this day
Feels like a dream, like a dream, feels like a dream
From the moment I saw you
I knew I’d wear this dress
And i’d say yes
I’d say yes

CHORUS
I’ll be all tapped out on love songs
By the time this one is done
So I’m spilling all my mushy thoughts
Because you are the one
I may be a luck maker
Hey, just look around
but you’ve made me, officially, the luckiest girl in town

This night, this night, this night, this night
With everyone that I love, with everyone that I love
I’ve never felt such happiness
Since the time I said yes
Since I said yes

CHORUS

I can’t imagine a life without you
I can’t imagine year without you
I can’t even imagine a month, a week without you
I’ve got to have you every day
I’ve got to have you

This life, this life, this life, this life
Won’t pass me by, won’t pass me by, won’t pass me by, won’t pass US by
Some take more, and some need less
But all I want is to say yes
I will say yes

CHORUS
Track Name: Hotel Yorba
I was watching
With one eye on the other side
I had fifteen people telling me to move
I got moving on my mind
I found shelter
In some thoughts turning wheels around
I said 39 times that I love you
To the beauty I had found

Well its 1 2 3 4
Take the elevator
At the hotel yorba
I'll be glad to see you later
All they got inside is vacancy

I been thinking
Of a little place down by the lake
They got a dirty little road leading up to the house
I wonder how long it will take till we're alone
Sitting on the front porch of that home
Stomping our feet on the wooden boards
Never gonna worry about locking the doorWell its 1 2 3 4
Take the elevator
At the hotel yorba
I'll be glad to see you later
All they got inside is vacancy

It might sound silly
For me to think childish thoughts like these
But I'm so tired of acting tough, I'm gonna do what I please
Let's get married
In a big old room and eat a feast
'Cuz if I'm the one that you love the most, you could say I do at least
Well its 1 2 3 4
Take the elevator
At the hotel yorba
I'll be glad to see you later
All they got inside is vacancy

And it's 4 5 6 7
Grab your umbrella
Grab hold of me
Cause your my favourite fella
All they got inside is vacancy
