    If This Ain't Love

    If this ain't love, we're dancing all around it
    Honey, who knows how we might have found it
    Call it what you want and that's close enough
    If this ain't real I don't know what else it is
    Anything better, I never felt it
    What could it be if this ain't love

    We've been out in the rain
    Laughing out loud
    We've been so afraid to say
    All that we've been feeling up till now
    So we walk to the river, let the world go on by
    I can see all the answers in your eyes

    If this ain't love, I wonder what it could be
    Sure feels like everything it should be
    I'm just glad it finally took ahold of us
    If this ain't it, where we gonna find it
    Seems like we've been sneakin' up behind it
    Sure would be surprised if this ain't love

    We've both been fooled before
    So we took it kind of slow
    We can't deny it anymore
    No sense in pretending we don't know
    It's a new situation that we got on our hands
    And it's changing all of our plans

    If this ain't love, we're dancing all around it
    Honey who knows how we went have found it
    Call it what you want and that's close enough
    If this ain't love, where we gonna find it
    Seems like we've been sneakin' up behind it
    Sure would be surprised if this ain't love
    Sure would be surprised if this ain't love
    If this ain't love

    Bang Bang Bang

    Here she comes in her hot pink pedal pushers
    Bouffant hair from the Curl Up and Dye
    Cat mama shades with the rhinestone customizing
    Tell me I ain't one lucky guy

    It's Friday night and the full moon's shining
    That always makes her just a little insane
    Eight o'clock and I hear her tires squealing
    Picking me up in her purple Fairlane

    There's a band at the Rotary
    Just a two dollar cover charge
    We hear 'em playing as we're parking the car

    And it's bang bang bang goes the drummer
    Twang twang twang goes guitar
    Dance dance dance little Dixie
    And there goes my heart

    Never forget the first time I saw her
    Chuck Berry playing while she walked the dog
    Go-go boots and leopard skin body suit
    Beat 'bout anything I ever saw
    We did the stroll and the double watusi
    She never once let me catch my breath
    She kept me going like a steam locomotive
    Felt so good I liked to hurt myself

    Now 'bout each and every weekend
    I watch her cuttin' up a rug
    Every time I just fall in love

    And it's bang bang bang goes the drummer
    Twang twang twang goes guitar
    Dance dance dance little Dixie
    And there goes my heart

    There's a band at the Rotary
    Just a two dollar cover charge
    We hear 'em playing as we're parking the car

    And it's bang bang bang goes the drummer
    Twang twang twang goes guitar
    Dance dance dance little Dixie
    And there goes my heart

    Bang bang bang goes the drummer
    Twang twang twang goes guitar
    Dance dance dance little Dixie
    And there goes my heart

    Singing To The Scarecrow

    In a pair of faded coveralls and her mama's old high heels
    She wobbles up and takes a shaky bow
    She smiles a little smile that hides her missing baby tooth
    And she manages to sing that way somehow
    She starts with "Delta Dawn"
    Then goes into "Amazing Grace"
    Then squints her eyes and sings "I Fought The Law"
    And when the wind comes sweeping in and ripples through the corn
    To her it sounds exactly like applause

    She's just singing to the scarecrow
    Dancing through the fields
    With a kitten named Bojangles in her arms
    Trying to let the whole world know
    How wonderful it feels
    To be here on this south Kentucky farm
    Singing to the Scarecrow

    She looks into his patchwork eyes and looks into his heart
    Then tries to find a song to ease his pain
    Then she sings "Faded Love" until the sunny sky grows dark
    And his tears are falling in the summer rain

    And she's singing to the scarecrow
    Dancing through the fields
    With a kitten named Bojangles in her arms
    Trying to let the whole world know
    How wonderful it feels
    To be here on this south Kentucky farm
    Singing to the Scarecrow

    Now that little girl is grown
    She's in a band out on the road
    She left those green Kentucky fields behind
    But she sings herself back home
    When she's at the microphone
    And she smiles that funny smile and shuts her eyes

    She's still singing to the scarecrow
    Trying to let the whole world know
    How wonderful it feels
    To be there on that south Kentucky farm
    Singing to the Scarecrow
    Singing to the scarecrow
    Singing to the scarecrow

    Forget The Job (Get A Life)

    Hey everybody take a break
    You're puttin' up with more than you should take
    You've got work up to here fifty weeks a year
    What difference would a couple days make
    You got to get out in the world and see what's going on
    You won't know what you're missin' 'til the missin's all gone

    Forget the job (get a life) forget the job (get a life)
    Forget the job (get a life, get a life, get a life)
    Hey

    You get an hour to grab lunch
    You barely start before you have to be done
    Someone comes up to you, you think they're real cute
    But you have to be back before one
    Or the boss'll be mad, the place'll fall apart
    What you gonna do when it's him or your heart

    Forget the job (get a life) forget the job (get a life)
    Forget the job (get a life, get a life, get a life)
    Hey

    You come home half dead
    Jammed traffic still poundin' in your head
    Dishes in the sink, you could use a drink
    Laundry piled up on the bed
    You never stay home you party all the time
    You really got to get your priorities in line

    Forget the job (get a life) forget the job (get a life)
    Forget the job (get a life, get a life, get a life)
    Hey

    Forget the job (get a life) forget the job (get a life)
    Forget the job (get a life, get a life, get a life)
    Hey

    Forget the job (get a life, get a life, get a life, get a life)
    Forget the job (get a life, get a life, get a life, get a life)
    Forget the job (get a life, get a life, get a life, get a life)
    Forget the job

    It's About Time

    We've been together for a while
    Look how far we've come
    Guess we both thought this would be
    Just another kiss and run
    But feelings grew stronger
    Day after day
    'Til we both were certain
    That it was meant to be this way

    It's about time, baby
    And it's about love
    It's about tomorrow
    And all we can become
    It's about time darlin'
    And it's about trust
    It's about forever
    And it's about us

    I never thought I'd feel so sure
    About anyone
    Where each emotion is so clear
    Now that day has finally, finally come

    I never thought I'd feel so sure
    About anyone
    Now every single doubt is gone
    And I know that you're the one

    It's about time, baby
    And it's about love
    It's about tomorrow
    And all we can become
    It's about time, darlin'
    And it's about trust
    It's about forever
    And it's about us

    It's about time
    It's about us

    Down The Road

    When I was a boy
    Four houses down from me
    Was a family with an only child
    And she was the only girl in this ol' world
    That could make me smile
    Down the road
    I made up reasons to go down the road

    Somewhere inside of me
    There was something she took a liking to
    And I asked her to marry me
    And she said she really wanted to
    Down the road
    See what life's gonna hold, down the road

    Her mama wants to know am I washed in the blood
    Or just in the water
    Her daddy wants to know if I make enough
    To take his daughter
    Down the road
    Before he can let her go down the road

    Now down the street from here
    There's an engineer with an only son
    And our baby girl says she believes
    That he is the only one
    Down the road

    Her mama wants to know is he washed in the blood
    Or just the water
    And I want to know that he makes enough
    To take my daughter
    Down the road
    When it comes time to go down the road

    Down the road
    You know I want to help her go down the road
    Down the road

    Nickel In The Well

    I got a four leaf clover
    Hung a horseshoe on the wall
    Threw salt over my left shoulder
    I'll try anything at all
    To get lucky with you
    I want you so much
    Until you want me too
    I ain't gonna give up

    I'll throw another nickel in the well
    Tell myself this time maybe it'll help
    To make my dreams come true
    I'll make another wish upon a star
    Just in case you're out in your backyard
    Lookin' up there too
    With a lot of love and a little luck
    You'll fall like I fell
    I'll just cross my fingers
    And throw another nickel in the well

    If I could get Houdini
    To teach me a trick or two
    Then maybe you would see me
    In the way I want you to
    I'm gonna knock on wood
    It ain't been easy
    I've done everything I could
    To make you need me

    I'll throw another nickel in the well
    Tell myself this time maybe it'll help
    To make my dreams come true
    I'll make another wish upon a star
    Just in case you're out in your backyard
    Lookin' up there too
    With a lot of love and a little luck
    You'll fall like I fell
    I'll just cross my fingers
    And throw another nickel in the well

    With a lot of love and a little luck
    You'll fall like I fell
    I'll just cross my fingers
    And throw another nickel in the well
    I'll just cross my fingers
    And throw another nickel in the well

    Rent, Groceries And Gasoline

    I used to live the luxury life
    A new house, three cars to drive
    Steppin' over the credit line
    I was payin' a heavy price

    It seemed that more was never enough
    So I called my creditors up
    Said all I need is that Cadillac car
    I'm headin' for a brand new start

    I was in way too deep
    Straightened out my priorities
    I'm a man of simple means
    Just rent, groceries and gasoline

    I got a trailer, it's sturdy and cheap
    A part-time job, work when I please
    Goin' to Mexico next week
    Gotta feel that ocean breeze

    I might settle down sometime
    But right now it ain't on my mind
    Got a pretty girl along for the ride
    And she's the adventurous kind

    I got everything I need
    Straightened out my priorities
    I'm a man of simple means
    Just rent, groceries and gasoline

    Got a full tank and some food to go
    Check the map and we'll hit the road
    In the flicker of the dashboard lights
    I feel my life unwind

    I got everything I need
    Straightened out my priorities
    I'm a man of simple means
    Just rent, groceries and gasoline

    I got everything I need
    Straightened out my priorities
    I'm a man of simple means
    Just rent, groceries and gasoline

    Give me rent, groceries and gasoline
    Just rent, groceries and gasoline
    I need rent, groceries and gasoline

    Dry Town

    Well, the road was hot and flat as a ruler
    Good hundred miles between me and Missoula
    That vinyl top weren't gettin' no cooler
    So I stopped at a Quickie Sack
    Well, I figure I'd need about a six of Miller
    And one of them things so's I wouldn't spill 'er
    So I asked the girl if the beer was in the back

    She said,
    It's a dry town, no beer, no liquor
    For miles around I'd give a nickel
    For a sip or two to wash me down
    Out of this dry town

    So I turned right around, no hesitatin'
    Cursed the laws ruining the nation
    Waved goodbye to the boy at the station
    But she wouldn't go into gear
    He said it sounds like it's your transmission
    You need Bob, but he's gone fishing
    On his day off he gets a long way from here

    'Cause it's a dry town no beer no liquor
    For miles around I'd give a nickel
    For a sip or two to wash me down
    Out of this dry town

    Well, back home friends you can get a dose of
    Something strong from the local grocer
    So I walked down 'til I come closer
    To a place called Happy John's
    He said I keep some for colds and fevers
    Down underneath's where I usually leave 'er
    But just last night I felt a cold coming on

    Now it's a dry town no beer no liquor
    For miles around I'd give a nickel
    For a sip or two to wash me down
    Out of this dry town

    It's a dry town no beer no liquor
    For miles around I'd give a nickel
    For a sip or two to wash me down
    Out of this dry town

    I need a sip or two
    To wash me down
    Out of this dry town

    The Monkey Song

    Now I wonder if where love's involved
    Did we improve as we evolved
    Perhaps we'd fix a big mistake
    By going wild, going ape

    Here we go 'round the dry thistle
    Monkey can climb but I can whistle
    He can't sing and I can't dance
    And the monkey don't have to wear no pants

    Here we go 'round the dry thistle
    Monkey can climb but I can whistle
    He can't sing and I can't dance
    And the monkey don't have to wear no pants

    Here we go 'round the dry thistle
    Monkey can climb but I can whistle
    He can't sing and I can't dance
    And the monkey don't have to wear no pants

    Here we go 'round the dry thistle
    Monkey can climb but I can whistle
    He can't sing and I can't dance
    And the monkey don't have to wear no pants

    Southbound Train

    I had a dream that I was in my Dixie home
    When my sleep was shattered by the telephone
    It was Samantha and she said darlin' boy
    Can we get back together you're my pride and joy

    Now I'm a southbound train
    Just a rollin' down the line
    Oh I'm a southbound train
    Headin' to that gal of mine

    Picked up my car keys threw on my coat and hat
    And then I grabbed my suitcase and that was that
    Ran to my old Ford and slid behind the wheel
    Words can't tell you how I feel

    Now I'm a southbound train
    Just a rollin' down the line
    Oh I'm a southbound train
    Headin' to that gal of mine

    Ooh, sounds like thunder in the night
    Ooh, but there's no rain
    Ooh, that rumble that you hear
    It's me, I'm a southbound train

    Well, I'm a southbound train
    Just a rollin' down the line
    Oh I'm a southbound train
    Headin' to that gal of mine

    Now I'm a southbound train
    Just rumblin' down the track
    Oh, I'm a southbound train
    Ain't nothin' gonna hold me back
