BISCUIT GIRL

When I think of all the nice things in the world, 
I think of you, think of you 
When I think of all the nice things in the world, 
I think of you, think of you 
Summer nights, soft lights, 
Coffee in the mornin', biscuits in the oven 
All the nice things in the world make me think of you 
You're my biscuit girl, you're my biscuit girl 

When I'm feelin' good and all right with the world 
I think of you, think of you 
When I'm feelin' good and all right with the world 
I think of you, think of you 
Simple joys like kids makin' noise 
Or the quiet of the night, lyin' by your side 
All the right things in the world make me think of you 
You're my biscuit girl, you're my biscuit girl


HOW COME

Waitin' on an answer from a pretty little dancer 
Said she'd trade her heart for a song 
Wonderin' if she is or isn't with me 
And if she's not, baby what went wrong 

How come, everything I try to hang on to just seems to disappear 
The one I want ain't the one I got and the one I want, she's not here 
How come, everything I try to hang on to just seems to disappear 
The one I want ain't the one I got and the one I want, she's not here 

So it's under the covers with anonymous lovers 
Tryin' to kill the pain 
It's not the sweet regrets, it's the sad sad neglect 
Leave me standin' out there in the rain. 

How come . . . 

So I try to forget all the things that I can't get 
Try not to think about what I felt 
Doin' the best I can to find my winnin' hand 
Playin' the cards that I'm dealt. 

How come . . .


FORTUNE COOKIE SONG

You know there's more than one way down to the bottom 
Down where the deepest secrets lie 
Typically, there's the way that involves the bottle 
And turns of phrase like smashed and fried 

And after enough time and enough drink has passed 
All those secrets just rise up and float right there on the surface 
Perfect strangers become best friends and 
Tell each other things that they never told their therapist 

Well, I think I may have found a healthier alternative 
One that'll get ya to that same place but without the hangover 
I go down to the Long Life Vegi House 
You know that's a Chinese Restaurant in my hometown, just around the 
corner 

And I order myself some vegetable fried rice to go 
'Cause in there along with the plastic fork and the little pack 'a soy 
sauce 
They give me a fortune cookie, and later on after I finish my meal 
Open it up just to see what it would say 
You know it usually says somethin' like good things are comin' my way. 
Or, it might say somethin' like congratulations, says it's my lucky day 

Says all of my dreams are gonna come true 
And all lever think of is you 
Says everything I ever wished for will be mine 
You're the first one that always comes to mind 
You're the first thought that rises up, in that unguarded moment 
First thing I always think of is you 

Fortune cookies never lie, fortune cookies never lie . . .


THINGS U DO

All my life I wanted to be a success, so I could buy a big house 
Someplace to sit and watch a woman like you, all the things you do 

All my life I wanted to be the best 'cause I thought all the rest 
Would follow, especially a woman like you, and all the things you do 
Those things, precious things, that a woman like you would do 

I want a great big kitchen with a breakfast nook 
Where I can sit and pretend to read a book 
And watch the way you are when you think nobody's there to look 
At the way that you move through the room, sit down in the chair 
Draw the comb down through your wet hair 
And maybe I'll get closer to the things that I can't touch 
That's the only reason I want it all so much 
Is a woman like you, just like you, and the things you do 

I want a great big bed in a master bedroom suite 
Where I can watch you dress when you have appointments to keep 
And watch you through the night when I'm awake and you're asleep 
At the way that you breathe so soft, talk in your dreams 
Lie there like a baby, all powdered and clean 
And maybe I'll get closer to the things I can't touch 
That's the only reason I want it all so much 
Is a woman like you . . . 


PAY PHONE

Standin' in a pay phone by the side of the road 
Been walkin' 'round for hours, had no place to go 
So I thought I'd rest a while inside this pay phone stand 
Just happen to have your number in my hand 
Standin' in a pay phone, I got your number in my hand 

Feel like a fool, I just keep standin' here 
Tried so hard to forget you but you're much too clear 
Wonder if you're happy, have you found another man 
Or, are you sad and lonesome, sad and lonesome like I am 
Standin' in a pay phone, I got your number in my hand 

Think of you baby, when I'm all alone 
Yeah, try to figure out where we went wrong 
My friends say, "leave it alone, it's for the best man" 
They don't know that I'm doin' the best that I can 
Standin' in a pay phone with your number in my hand 



HIGHWAY BLUES

I ran down the highway, highway ran down me 
I ran down the highway, highway ran down me 
The highway's where I run, the highway keeps me free 

Don't you hear it, don't you hear it, don't you hear that highway call 
Don't you hear it, don't you hear it, don't you hear that highway call 
Well that highway's where I run, highway's where I fall 

Don't you hear it, don't you hear it, semi rollin' through the night 
yeah, semi rollin', rollin' through the night 
Well that highway's where I run, highway's where I fight 

I ran down the highway, highway ran down me 
I ran down the highway, highway ran down me 
Well that highway's where I run, highway keep me free 



BELONGS TO HER

Ooh, she loves her body, you can tell by the way she moves that she 
likes herself 
You can tell by her look, she knows it belongs to her and nobody else 
Likes to show it off in little bits and pieces, with little hints and 
glimpses 
I love the way she teases, the way she teases 

Ooh, she loves her body, look at her twirl around out in the sun 
I love the way she loves to play and sashay and have her fun 
She's usin' what she's wearin' with feminine wisdom 
Passed down through the ages, she's such a lovely vision, such a lovely 
vision 

And it's always been her special joy 
Her very own private, personal toy 
To celebrate her sense of herself 
It belongs to her, nobody else 
It belongs to her. You can tell she knows who it belongs to . . .


LIVIN' LIVE

Livin' live, off the cuff, improvise, hang tough 
The essence of life is lost the moment you try to take over 
I suggest you arrive with the best made plans 
But as you walk in, throw 'em over your shoulder 

Livin' live, no retake, anyway, we all know, good things come out of 
mistakes 
The essence of life is lost the moment you try to take over 
I suggest you arrive with the best made plans 
But as you walk in, throw 'em over your shoulder 

If you know what it is to be always afraid 
Then you must know by now there's not a thing to gain 
Off the top of your head, from the seat of your pants 
You gotta shoot from the hip like it was your last chance 
Livin' live 

Whole life invested in tryin' to keep  what you got 
But your assets are freezin' over 
All that interest just keeps pilin' up 
But your fire's growin' colder 
I suggest you arrive with the best made plans 
But as you walk in, throw 'em over your shoulder
