Orange Sunshine

[Verse 1]
I can't think of any other way to say
Another day like any other, going my way
Everything might have a reason, a catch-22
I don't need no other reason, other than you

[Verse 2]
Everyday, the same old story, guess you know
Pick a path, a category, like on a game show
Such a waste, life is meant to be impromptu
Just the same, no one I'd rather be with other than you

[Chorus]
And it's you, it's always been you, my orange sunshine
I can see the light on your face so hard to outshine
Oh, you lovely thing, you brighten my day
Chasing the clouds and the darkness away, today

[Verse 3]
The drums keep pounding their rhythm to my brain
No better way to overcome the mundane
I can't help but have this feeling that I do
No one is more appealing other than you

[Chorus]
And it's you, it's always been you, my orange sunshine
I can see the light on your face so hard to outshine
Oh, you lovely thing, you brighten my day
Chasing the clouds and the darkness away, today

[Chorus]
And it's you, it's always been you, my orange sunshine
I can see the light on your face so hard to outshine
Oh, you lovely thing, you brighten my day
Chasing the clouds and the darkness away

[Chorus]
And it's you, it's always been you, my orange sunshine
I can see the light on your face so hard to outshine
Oh, you lovely thing, you brighten my day
Chasing the clouds and the darkness away, today

Peace Of Mind

[Verse 1]
You're classy in your high top boots
Topped off with a freshly pressed suit
But really though, the point is rather moot
When you ain't got no peace of mind
Your set of wheels is second to none
You always feel like you're under the gun
Hey Mr. Business Man, you've been outdone
When you ain't got no peace of mind

[Verse 2]
You're stepping out of your stretch limousine
There's better ways to regain self-esteem
You will surely never reign supreme
When you ain't got no peace of mind
Your chateau is as flashy as they come
A refection of the man that you've become
You'll never know which path you're coming from
When you ain't got no peace of mind

[Bridge]
I need to tell you what you have to do today
You can't just sit there and think everything is well enough this way
Get down to the beat and dance with a song
And if you're feeling extra lively, well then try to sing along
You need to find your inner happiness inside of you
No need for possessions for a chance to start anew
If there's only one thing in life that you will always find
You know it's just like humankind to surrender peace of mind
Just like humankind to surrender peace of mind
Just like humankind to surrender peace of mind
Just like humankind to surrender peace of mind

[Verse 3]
What would you do if it all fell down?
An everlasting king without a crown
On the verge of a nervous breakdown
When you ain't got no peace of mind
Your superficial soul is spent
Greediness equal to dried cement
A wild storm you can never prevent
When you ain't got no peace of mind

[Outro]
Don't surrender your peace of mind
Don't surrender your peace of mind
Don't surrender your peace of mind
No, no don't surrender, don't surrender
Don't surrender your peace of mind
Don't surrender your peace of mind
No, no don't surrender, don't surrender
Don't surrender your peace of mind now
Don't surrender your peace of mind
Don't surrender your peace of mind
No, no don't surrender, don't surrender
No, no, no don't surrender
Don't surrender your peace of mind
Don't surrender your peace of mind
No, no don't surrender, don't surrender
No, no, no, don't surrender

Pensacola Rain

[Chorus]
Pensacola rain
Sounds just like a freight train
Rolling down the tracks
With nothing left to gain
Walking barefoot in the rain
Have no need to explain
Let us dance the night away
In that Pensacola rain

[Verse 1]
Here it comes, another day
Sun has appeared, clouds are gray
Lift your head and close your eyes
Let the rain take you away

[Verse 2]
The golden sun it hasn’t set
And I haven’t kissed you yet
Yesterday has come and gone
So tomorrow’s our best bet

[Chorus]
Yeah that Pensacola rain
Sounds just like a freight train
Rolling down the tracks
With nothing left to gain
Walking barefoot in the rain
Have no need to explain
Let us dance the night away
In that Pensacola rain

[Verse 3]
Let us sail on out to sea
In a boat just you and me
When that rain comes falling down
We’ll be fine just wait and see

[Verse 4]
That night we ran down to the bar
We really didn’t get very far
‘Cause the clouds they had a plan
The raindrops look like falling stars

[Chorus]
Yeah that Pensacola rain
Sounds just like a freight train
Rolling down the tracks
With nothing left to gain
Walking barefoot in the rain
Have no need to explain
Let us dance the night away
In that Pensacola rain

[Outro]
Let us dance the night away
In that Pensacola rain

Phruitcake Pirate

[Verse 1]
Deck of a tall ship
Man, that’d be a real trip
Runnin’ around on the ocean just like the pirates of old
With my own treasure of silver, diamonds, and gold

[Verse 2]
Is it real? Is it true?
Out on the Caribbean blue
No joke, no gag
‘Cause we’re flying that skull and bones flag

[Chorus]
Or maybe I’m just a wannabe
Phruitcake pirate
Living out my wannabe
Tirade
Phruitcake pirate
Yes, he’s a
Phruitcake pirate
Yes, he is

[Bridge]
Going strong under sail
Doing good, we ain’t gonna fail
Gonna live to tell the tale
Ain’t gonna be eaten by no whale

[Verse 3]
Wine, rum, waves, and women
Can’t all be that wrong
A drum, some rum, native girls to capture with just an island song
Sitting on the beach hitting a bong, man living large just like Cheech and Chong

[Chorus]
Or maybe I’m just a wannabe
Phruitcake pirate
Living out my wannabe
Tirade
Phruitcake pirate
Yes, he’s a
Phruitcake pirate
Yes, he is

[Chorus]
Because I’m a
Phruitcake pirate
Just living my life out loud
Three maybe four centuries
Too late
Too late

[Chorus]
Or maybe I’m just a wannabe
Phruitcake pirate
Living out my wannabe
Tirade
Phruitcake pirate
Yes, he’s a
Phruitcake pirate
Yes, he is

[Outro]
Phruitcake pirate
Phruitcake pirate

Pipeline Dream

[Verse 1]
I’ve walked many roads in this life
Some of them weren't exactly paved
But my biggest motivation always has been
This everlasting hunger deep inside
To ride the biggest tidal wave

[Chorus]
Okay, so I've come a long way
Drawing lines in the sand, and making waves in the sea
Rarely have I ever stopped to think
No the thought of it never occurred to me
Okay, so I've come this far
It could be an illusion or a mystery
Sure seems like a maniacal scheme
Blink and it's gone it's a Pipeline dream

[Verse 2]
Many of the waves turn into monsters
Off the north shore of O'ahu
But they say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger
And you can't very well wipeout your aspirations
Even if they seem impossible to you

[Chorus]
Okay, so I've come a long way
Drawing lines in the sand, and making waves in the sea
Rarely have I ever stopped to think
No the thought of it never occurred to me
Okay, so I've come this far
It could be an illusion or a mystery
Sure seems like a maniacal scheme
Blink and it's gone it's a Pipeline dream

[Chorus]
Okay, so I've come a long way
Drawing lines in the sand, and making waves in the sea
Rarely have I ever stopped to think
No the thought of it never occurred to me
Okay, so I've come this far
It could be an illusion or a mystery
Sure seems like a maniacal scheme
Blink and it's gone it's a Pipeline dream

[Outro]
Pipeline dream

Pirate's Son

[Verse 1]
Ships sailing out in the ocean
Birds flying high in the sky
There’s an old man who’s neither rich or poor
Who’s not afraid to die

[Chorus]
He’s living life like a pirate’s son
Never worries about what he’s said or done
The jolly roger flies and the cannons roar
‘X’ marks the spot in the sand on shore

[Verse 2]
He surrounds himself with sailors
They get along just fine
He tells them tales of long ago
When the trade ships lined the coastline

[Chorus]
'Cause he’s living life like a pirate’s son
Never worries about what he’s said or done
The jolly roger flies and the cannons roar
‘X’ marks the spot in the sand on shore

[Verse 3]
He staggers home from the tavern
Three sheets to the wind
The buccaneers at the bar they enjoy his tales
And each buy him a bottle of gin

[Chorus]
'Cause he’s living life like a pirate’s son
Never worries about what he’s said or done
The jolly roger flies and the cannons roar
‘X’ marks the spot in the sand on shore

[Verse 4]
He lives down on his sailboat
It’s anchored in the bay
And when he falls asleep, he then starts to dream
About the stories he’ll tell the next day

[Chorus]
'Cause he’s living life like a pirate’s son
Never worries about what he’s said or done
The jolly roger flies and the cannons roar
‘X’ marks the spot in the sand on shore

[Chorus]
Living life like a pirate’s son
Never worries about what he’s said or done
The jolly roger flies and the cannons roar
‘X’ marks the spot in the sand on shore

[Outro]
‘X’ marks the spot in the sand on shore

Queen Of Diamonds

[Verse 1]
Welcome to the world, it's a misguided place
Full of kind-hearted people, hidden by their poker face
Granted everyone's not perfect, love is tainted, thoughts are cruel
But now if you play your cards right, you won't wind up looking a fool

[Pre-Chorus]
She's always been, and she'll always be
Glamour and glitz aren't all they're cracked up to be

[Chorus]
She's the Queen of Diamonds
And her vice is when you're begging her to stay
She knows it's not right
But she always tends to do it anyway
She had forgotten
Just how nice having someone around felt
She doesn't understand
The price of the hand that she's been dealt

[Verse 2]
Stack the deck, make a deal, but don't overplay your hand
Maybe love isn't her strong suit, but soon enough she'll understand
Put your cards on the table, old habits prefer to die hard
Don't get lost in the shuffle, may I present your wild card?

[Pre-Chorus]
She's always been, and she'll always be
Glamour and glitz aren't all they're cracked up to be

[Chorus]
She's the Queen of Diamonds
And her vice is when you're begging her to stay
She knows it's not right
But she always tends to do it anyway
She had forgotten
Just how nice having someone around felt
She doesn't understand
The price of the hand that she's been dealt

[Outro]
She's always been, and she'll always be
Glamour and glitz aren't all they're cracked up to be
