Track Name: Jesus, How's Your Mom?
Well I think that I wish I could hang out with Jesus I’d ask how his mom was doin’ these days
I’d ask ….. if he still did some carpenter stuff
Like a hobby just for something to do
We could go grab a bite…… if he said he was hungry
‘N I’d say…… “Hey this one’s on me”
I’d order the fish and a small piece of bread
And drink wine like we was gettin’ it free
I might even mention that my shoulder’s been hurtin’
Or how much I miss my Old Man
N’ I’ll try not to stare at the scars on his head
Or the holes in his side and his hands
I Know if I met him He’d leave an impression
But I don’t think, I’d impress him
I think ..that I wish ..I could hang out with Jesus
Cuz I ain’t good at makin’ amends

We might go fishin’ or wade on the creek
I’m gonna leave that to him
I might stay dry ‘n just wait on the shore
If he wants to go for a swim

I might take Him ‘round to meet all my friends
If he don’t yet know who they are
My Chevy’s broke down, so maybe I’ll ask
“Have you ever laid hands on a car”

‘N I know if I met Him He’d leave and impression....... ….....
My whole world would be different This I know……
If I could get close enough just to touch… the hem of his coat

I hope he don’t notice that my feet are all dirty I never can get em clean
I think that I wish I could hang out with Jesus, Least I think, if you know what I mean
‘Cuz I know if I met Him……..
Track Name: Whad'ya Mean, You Don't Like Dawgz
I met a gal she was cute as a pup
I commenced to chattin’ her up
We was gettin’ along real nice
Like Adam and Eve in Paradise

She whispered softly in my ear
Words I never thought hear
Took her by the hand Led ‘er down the hall
Right out the door, that’s it , that’s all

‘N I said, “Whad’ya mean, you don’t llike dogs? How you think you n me could ever get along?
You look all right, but you’re heart’s all wrong.
Whad’ya mean, you don’t like dogs?

She said “A bird would make a real nice pet.
“ An alpaca that’d be better yet”
She mentioned other pets she tried
I never let her back inside

She said “ A dog’ll bark and smell,
And shed and hump your leg as well”
So I said “ Yea, that stuff is true,
But they make a better friend than you”

Ch. “Whad’ya mean…….

Br. They say that A dog is a man’s best friend
And dogs just love women too
The Truth is every now and then
A little hump on the leg is good for you

Ch. Whad’ya mean……
Track Name: Oh Possum
Oh Possum, Oh Possum, OR just Possum, OK
You play dead so well, for survival they say
You lie there so still just a holdin' your breath,
I can't hardly tell you're a fakin' your death

__Possum, __Possum, you're silent and scary
I din't see your name in no o bit u ary
U lie like a rug, Almost didn't see ya
Like a Thi---in crust pizza, Or a Crispy Tortilla

POSSUM OH Possum, U got it down pat, U been at it now, for 2 hours flat
If I'z like JESUS I'd command U ARISE, N just like before, there'd be lite n ur eyes

Your friends come around, to join in the game,
They seem kinda frantic as they call out your name
They must be impressed, and I'm impressed too,
But you just look PRESSED, I guess that's what you do.

Ain't Funny no more You gone way too far
Allright, you win I'm back in my car
You can lie there all day I don't really care
But just so you know That's a buzzard up there.
Track Name: Just Not Tonight
Tried a Little Tried a Lot Tried to Remember but I Forgot
Tried to Push Tried a Nudge Tried the Door It wouldn’t budge

I tried leavin’ you alone Tried with all my might
‘n I’m gonna try again baby, Just not tonight

Tried to Run Tried to Walk Tried to Listen Tried to Talk
I tried Easy I tried Hard Tried like the Devil I tried the Lord

I tried leavin’ you alone Tried with all my might
‘n I’m gonna try again baby, Just not tonight

A Train, a Plane, a Motorboat, I even rode a Billygoat
Rode a Horse and rode a Mule, rode off lookin’ like a fool
Rowed a boat to Singapore and I ain’t doin’ that no more
Cuz everywhere I went I went CRAZY

I tried Easy, I tried Hard Tried like the Devil, and I tried the Lord

I tried leavin’ you alone Tried with all my might
‘n I’m gonna try again baby, Just not tonight
Track Name: EZ 2P
I gotta go to the bathroom I ain't kiddin I ain't piddlin' around
I gotta go find me a bathroom or you can tell Noah, build an Ark cuz the whole world...gonna drown.

I gotta go find me a bathroom One I can use, one that, fits me just right
I gotta go but somebody's watchin' Keepin' track, makin' sure I do this thing right

It used to be so simple, it was EZ to P U go behind a bush or U go behind a tree
I've come a long way but I can't get relief Cuz the sign on the bathrm door, it don't look

I gotta go, where no one can see me Where nobody knows me, 'n I can go by myself
I gotta go, where I can just be me, Where I don't have to worry, about nobody else.

It used to be so simple, it was EZ to P …...

Bridge: I'll show you, Respect you'll Do the same for me
We've got to work it out No matter how you Pee

It used to be so simple, it was EZ to P …...

I gotta go Right now
Track Name: Dog Gone Lucky Dog
If I was a Dog And I had a ball
If be having a ball Just being a Dog
And maybe a bone And a Sweet, little... female dog
We'd sniff one another, n I'd share my ball

Cuz a Dog with a bone an a ball an a girl
Is a Doggone lucky dog
N I wouldn't ask for nothin else
Cuz I'd just about have it all
You treatin me so bad, everything would sho be better,
If you would treat me like a Dog.

N a Dog don't work, unless he wants to
N I would work like a Dog When I had something to do
N a Dog'll take a nap Just any old time
That'd be alright. That'd be so fine

Cuz a Dog with a bone an a girl takin naps
Is a Doggone lucky dog
An I wouldn't beg for anything else
Cuz I'd just about have it all.
You treatin me so bad, everything would sho be better
If you would treat me like a Dog

If I was a Dog We'd go to the park
An your friends would call, and say "come here boy"
An I'd lay right down, N let em rub my belly
I'd shake my leg, an let my tongue hang out

Because a Dog with a ball an a belly rub
Is a doggone lucky dog
I wouldn't whine for nuthin else
Yeah I'd just love it all
You treatin' me so bad, everything would be much better
If you just treat me like a Dog, yea yah
If you just treat me like a Dog.
Track Name: You'll Get Over It
There is a mountain up ahead
Don't know how you'll climb it
But there it is
And You'll Get Over It A little bit at a time.

Your One True Love has gone away
You Cry an You Cry an You Cry and you Cry all day
But You'll Get Over It A little bit at a time.

We want What we want and when do we want it, we want it Right away
Now we know it ain't gonna go down like that
We Wait and We wait and we wait and then we wake up one day
We pick ourselves up n We Kick ourselve up inna mmm Mmm Mmm

Ask yourself a question Will You make up your mind
You gotta Believe so you can... Leave the mess behind
And You'll Get Over It... A Little Bit At a Time

You never felt worse, than you do right now
You gotta go on but you just don't see how
But You'll Get Over it A Little bit at a time

It ain't the first time (Sure) ain't the last
One day at a time and it will all be past
And You'll Get Over It a little bit at a time
Track Name: Wants
If I was smart, I could be the president
Or maybe not, I guess it all depends.
Ya gotta be tricky, Gotta be ….sneaky too.
But if I was smart, that's what I would do.

If I was cool, I could be a rock star,
Fly all around the world, I wouldnt even need a car
But I don't wear leather N I don't want no tattoos
But if I was cool, that's what I would do.

Everybody wants, 2 be somebody I just wanna be myself.
Everybody wants, to be UNIQUE Just like every body else.

If I was God, We'd start all over, take it from the top
Or maybe not, But I would make all the bullshit stop
But I can't work miracles.... I can't tolerate fools
But if I was God, that's what I'd hafta do.

Everybody wants, 2 be somebody I just wanna be myself.
Everybody wants, 2 be UNIQUE Just like everybody else.

If I was SMART, if I was COOL, if I was GOD, No Tellin what I would do.
Track Name: Love to Hate
The World is a messed up place
But that ain't nothin new
I think we can fix it
This is what we do

If we treat each other
like married partners
Y'know... take care of someone elses needs...before your own needs...
Then In turn,
they take care of you. (Sometimes)

Seriously, in a healthy relationship both parties know you're not always gonna get your way... BUT
Keep lookin out for one another,
Things get better n better n better

Then you don't have to fight for what you need....but ….you do have to die just a little bit.


Columbus sailed the Ocean blue
Found some Indians to screw
I didn't do it, neither did you
That was back in 1492
But I think I know the reason why
We Love to hate the other guy

This country ain't just Red and Blue
It's Black and White and Rainbow 2
There's Good and Bad, No Matter Who
You can't change anyone but you
It's Easier to Crucify
We Love to Hate the other guy

Well Jesus took a Cut in Pay
He came down to the Earth 1 day
Tried to show us Love that's True
So we kicked his ass n we killed him 2
Somebody Wins Somebody dies
Cuz we Love to Hate the other guy

Jesus took a cut in pay
Came down to the earth one day
It's a shame that fella had to die
and we Love to Hate the other guy
