What comes around goes around!

6/12/1991
What comes around, goes
around! Throughout my life. That's one thing that I found! You
may be ridin' high, but
by-and-by, something is going to bring you down!
 Because what comes
around, always goes around!
We used to have a big
old bully in our town!
Yeah he spent his time,
a doin' crime, and pushin' other people round!
Tillhe dialed the wrong
damned number,Now he's 6 feet underground!
That shows what comes
around, always goes around!
Yes what comes around always
goes around!
In for a penny, you're
in for a pound!
You may be walking
tall, but after all, somebody's going to bring you down!
Because what comes around,
always goes around!
Jimmy Jack had himself
a junkyard dog!
Well he kept him
chained, he caused him pain, he beat him with a piece a log!
Until after much abuse,
that dog got loose, and Jimmy's foot was all they found!
That proves what comes
around, always goes around!
Yes what comes around
goes around!
I heard somebody sprung
that dog out of the pound!
They gave him a lot of
love, and Lord above, he plays with their children now!
That proves what comes around,
always goes around!
Rev. John ran the
Church of the Holy Glenn!
But what he done with
the church's money, was an unholy sin!
They gave him a big old
trial, now he's in jail awhile!
And his smile has
turned to a frown!
That shows what comes
around, always goes around!
Yes! What comes around,
always goes around!
 
 The proof is in the pudding
5/12/1984
 When I was
just a boy, my granddad
told me!
The proof is in the pudding son,
can't you see?
 Well I was
too young then to
understand!
 But now
I've grown to be a man!
And it's
finally all so clear to
me!
 People will
tell you just about any
story!
 As long as
they think that you'll
believe it's true!
 
But the
truth lies within, it's
not what you say, it's what you do!
  First chorus
And I need
someone to help me!
I need
someone to be my guide!
I need
someone to show me the
way, to the other side! 
Time seems
to come and go so
quickly!
 What was
once so vivid now is
like a dream!
  I've got no
answers why!
 All I can
do is try, to make this
life the best that it can be!
  Chorus
Whatever
happened to those
old-time values?
 I guess
they just kind of
slipped away!
 Whatever
happened to a hard
day’s work?
For a hard
day's pay!
 Granddad
used to say, if you
ain't got the cash to pay,
 Then you
don't need it!
 In the old
days if you needed
credit it meant times were hard!
 Nowadays
you could have yourself
a ton of cash,
 And people
all still treat you
just like trash!    
 Unless you
have a dozen credit
cards!
 Chorus
 Whatever
happened to those
old-time values?
 I guess
they just kind of
slipped away!
Whatever
happened to a hard
day’s work?
 For a hard day's
pay!
 Grandma
used to say, that when
they took the house away, in 1930!
 She and
granddad vowed to never
trust a bank again!
So they
saved their cash in a
Mason jar, bought another house, and they bought a car!
And they’ve
never owed a nickel to
another soul, since then.
Chorus
Whatever
happened to those
old-time values?
 I guess
they just kind of
slipped away!
 Whatever
happened to a hard day’s
work, for a hard day's pay?
 Some people
drink or smoke, to cure
their problems!
Others shoot poison in
their veins!
 Still
others hurt their
fellow man!
 And I swear
I just can't understand
why the world is filled with so much pain!
 Last chorus
 And they
all need someone to
help them!
 They need
someone to be their
guide!
 They need
someone to show them
the way, to the other side!
Yeah when I
was just a boy, my
granddad told me!
 The proof
is in the pudding son,
can't you see?
 Well I was
too young then to
understand, but now I've grown to be a man!
And it's
finally, all so clear
to me!
 Who the hell do you
think you are!
Who the hell do you
think you are?
 Ridin' round in that
fancy car!
  Armani suit and a
big cigar!
 Tell me! Who the hell
do you think you are?
 Aaaaaah Ooooooh!
 You must think you're
something really special?
 Aaaaaah Ooooooh!
 You must think you're
something really fine?
 Aaaaaah Ooooooh!
 But consequence is
creeping up on you!
 Aaaaaah Ooooooh!
 And it's coming from
behind!
So Mister! Who the hell
do you think you are?
 Struttin' round like a
movie star!
 Buyin' drinks for the
whole damn bar!
 Dammit! Who the hell do
you think you are?
Chorus
You must think that
you're God's gift to women?
Too bad most women
don't seem to feel the same way?
 Maybe they would if you
chose a better kind of women?
 Instead of the
ones you like, that you have to paaaaay!
 So tell me who the hell
do you think are, Mr.,who the
hell do you think you
are! 
 
 
We Can See It Through! (Duet)
3/15/12
 Times are
hard and getting
harder!   Male lines
 And my
wallet's gettin' thin!
  We're down
too, beg, borrow, and
barter!
  The
mortgage company's
closin' in!
  You know
the kids can't
understand it, and I don't know what to do?
  I know this
ain't the way we
planned it!
 But baby!
We can see it through!
  Chorus  
male and female together
  Yes, we can
see it through! Cause
that's just what we do! When times start getting rough,
that's when we all get
tough, and we can see you through!
 Female
Lines:
 You've
always been my
sweetheart!
 Since we
were only 10!
 That's why
I will stand by you!
 Even through the thick and
thin!
 Yes, times
are hard, dear!
 And I think
they've been hardest on
you!
 So baby
hold me tight!
Everything will be all right!
 And we can
see through!
 Chorus   male
and female together
Yes, we can
see it through! Cause
that's just what we do! Yeah, we've seen hard times
before, and we probably
will see more! But we can see it through!
 
 
Long way home
2/2/87
Chorus
Oh
it's such a long way
home! When you've got no place to go!
 They'll
tell you! Oh, it's such
a long way home! When you've got no place to go!
When
you ain't got no home!
  Five
dirty little faces! Ten
empty little hands!
 Mommy
cries for the cameras!
 Daddy
claims he hasn't any
plans!
 Chorus
He
says that oh it's such
a long way home! When you've got no place to go!
 They'll
tell you! Oh, it's such
a long way home! When you've got no place to go!
 When
you've got no home!
  Concrete
curb for a pillow! And
a cardboard box for a home!
 You
lost everything that
you once had! And now you're out on the street alone!
 And
singing!
  Chorus
Oh
what a long way home!
When you've got no place to go! They'll tell you! Oh such
a long way when got no
place, when you’ve got no home!
 It's
hard being a statistic!
A face without a name!
 They'll
give you dinner, and a
bed at the mission!
 But
somehow it just ain't
the same!
 Chorus
 Oh
it's such a long way
home! When you got no place to go! They'll tell you....
 15 million kids go to
bed
hungry, in this great
land of ours, every night!
 Well
you can call me crazy!
But something about that just doesn't seem right!
 Chorus
Oh
it's such a long way
home! When you got no place to go! They'll tell you!.....
 The President
blames it on Congress!
 And
Congress blames it on
the states!
 The
states say it’s
counties jurisdiction!
 And
they all tell the
homeless to wait! And suffer!
Last
chorus
 No,
it's not such a long way home!
When you've got a place to go! Like the White House!
 No,
it's not such a long way home!
When you've got a place to go!
 When
you've got a home!
