  1. A Thousand Songs

From the recording A Thousand Songs

Lyrics

The roof it needs a mendin’, and we need an outside light
Refrigerator’s empty, and someone needs a bike
Oh I’d love to go to Costco, load up a couple carts
But that ain’ gonna happen, until my song goes up the charts
 
Chorus
Oh life would be so simple, life would be sublime
If I could only pay my bills on time
I’d pay off all my credit cards, then I’d be in the hunt
If I could sell a thousand songs on iTunes every month
 
Our dogs they need a groomin’, cuz they’re a special kinda dog
And I need a new computer, for keepin’ up my blog
There’s shirts and socks and hats t’buy, and charcoal for the grill
And if that doesn’t break the bank, well then the burger prob’ly will!
 
Chorus
Bridge
So folks, sign on and navigate, and don’t be cheap or shy
Find my songs on iTunes, and Click on BUY!
 
There’s water bills and l’ectric bills, and gas is gonna climb
There’s a Starbucks on the corner, where I  spend a lot of time
There’s a website and guitar strings, there’s CD blanks and picks
But all these things could be resolved with a modicum of clicks
 
Last Chorus
Oh life would be so simple, life would be so fine
Life would be much better, with a better bottom line!
I’d send my kids to college, and I’d reek with confidence,
If I could sell a thousand songs on iTunes every month!
I’d dine on brie and oysters, and I’d take my wife t’lunch
If I could sell a thousand songs on iTunes every month
