Track Name: Five Years Of Copper
Ba-Badapaaahhh-Badapabahhh

I think you thought- I might have thought that I could not continue on without you.
And what I thought may well be not be what you think (or what you thought) - that I may think (or might have thought) about you.

Well, I'm never looking back on five years of copper- after staring at five months of gold. And I hope all your trouble's find their way out the door- So you can dream your little dream while you get old.

Ba-Badapaaahhh-Badapabahhh

I think you thought- I might have thought that I could not continue on without you.
And what I thought may well be not be what you think (or what you thought) - that I may think (or might have thought) about you.

You were standing in the shadows, I was walking through the lake, so I pointed my boots the other way. Not my ONLY regret- (but regret it I must say... ) Was forcing you, and bribing you, and pushing you, and pulling you to stay.

Oh, black is the pot, but darker the kettle, and evil is not, what I meant to be. You see I'm just being honest, if you don't like it you can leave. Now i've said my peace - and counted to 1, 2, 3.

Ba-Badapaaahhh-Badapabahhh
Track Name: Even If
So, this is how it's gonna be. Down to him, and down to me.
Oh, if this is how it's gotta be - I gotta trick hid up my sleeve.

Even if it might have looked a little shaky.
Even if I may have seemed a little doomed.
You know that nothin's ever gonna gonna take me.
Even death can't keep my heart away from you.

You got me searchin' all around - you got me fightin' through the crowd.
True, it was tough when I was out - but i'm comin' for you now.

And even if my body feels a little achy.
Even if my spirit seems a little blue.
You know that nothin's ever gonna gonna break me.
Cause even death can't keep my heart away from you.

I know something you don't know.
I know something they don't know.
I'm gonna swing on down, and take you up, and off we're gonna go.
We're gonna go.

Even if I might have looked a little shaky.
Even if I may have seemed a little doomed.
You know that nothin's ever gonna gonna take me.
Cause even death can't keep my heart away from you.
Even death can't keep my heart away from you.
Cause even death can't keep my heart away from you.
Track Name: Free Spirit Woman
Free Spirit Woman turns her radio up high.
Windows on the El Camino down, hair blowin' as she drives.
Free Spirit Woman wants to marry old Jack White.
Free Spirit Woman's got it right.

Free Spirit Woman lights a cigarette or two.
Puffin' from behind her shades, she's eye-ballin' you.
Free Spirit Woman takes her coke with extra Jack.
Free Spirit Woman's so laid back.

AND SHE'S SO FREE!
She's rollin' on.
SHE'S SO FREE!
She's almost gone.

Free Spirit Woman preaches theory like it's true.
She'll read your fortune- then she'll tell you what to do.
Free Spirit Woman puts he foot on the cracks.
Free Spirit Woman's breakin' backs.

AND SHE'S SO FREE!
She's rollin' on.
SHE'S SO FREE!
She's almost gone.

SHE'S SO FREE-
She doesn't care at all.
The woman's got it all.
She's free-er than us all.

(SHE'S SO FREE!)

And free, Free Spirit Woman wants you to believe, she's free, she's free, oh yeah and she, she is, she's runnin' from her problem's, now. She can't- she won't be bothered now. NOW!

SHE'S SO FREE!
She's rollin' on.
AND SHE'S SO FREE!
She's almost gone.

SHE'S SO FREE-
She doesn't care at all.
The woman's got it all.
She's free-er than us alllllllll!
Track Name: Psalm for the Modern Troubadour
Leave your ballad's all behind, all you troubadours of modern times.
Trade in your strings, for louder things, more amplified.

Cause this is a fast song!
And you can only play it once!
This is the last song we'll sing.
So let's sing something worth singing- let's get everybody singing
"LA-LA-LA"

LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-
LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-
LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA

Put your sad song's in the trash, all you practitioners of wrong and rhyme.
Pick on a guitar, or beat on a drum- like you're runnin' out of time.

Cause this is a fast song!
And you can only play it once.
This is the last song we'll sing.
So let's sing something worth singing- let's get everybody singing
"LA-LA-LA"

LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-
LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-
LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-

We don't mind if your a lyre,
don't you worry, don't you fret,
If your organ's don't make music- let's not harp on it.
We're all in this together, and it's not over yet!

Cause this is a fast song!
And we can only play it once!
This is the last song we'll sing.
This is a fast song!
And we can only play it once!

LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-
LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-
LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-
LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-
LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-
LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-
LA-LA-LA-LA-LAAAAAHHHHHhhhh!
