Oh, I can cook, too, on top of the rest,
My seafood's the best in the town.
And I can cook, too.
My fish can't be beat,
My sugar's the sweetest around.
I'm a man's ideal of a perfect meal
Right down to the demi-tasse.
I'm a pot of joy for a hungry boy,
Baby, I'm cookin' with gas.
Oh, I'm a gumdrop,
A sweet lollipop,
A brook trout right out of the brook,
And what's more, baby, I can cook!

Some girls make magazine covers,
Some girls keep house on a dime,
Some girls make wonderful lovers,
But what a lucky find I'm.
I'd make a magazine cover,
I do keep house on a dime,
I make a wonderful lover,
I should be paid overtime!

'Cause I can bake, too, on top of the lot,
My oven's the hottest you'll find.
Yes, I can roast too,
My chickens just ooze,
My gravy will lose you your mind.
I'm a brand new note
On a table d'hôte,
But just try me à la carte.
With a single course
You can choke a horse.
Baby, you won't know where to start!
Oh, I'm an hors d'oeuvre,
A jelly preserve,
Not in the recipe book,
And what's more, baby, I can cook!

Baby, I'm cookin' with gas.
Oh, I'm a gumdrop,
A sweet lollipop,
A brook trout right out of the brook,
And what's more, baby, I can cook!

Some girls make wonderful jivers,
Some girls can hit a high "C",
Some girls make good taxi drivers,
But what a genius is me.
I'd make a wonderful jiver,
I even hit a high "C",
I make the best taxi driver,
I rate a big Navy "E"!

'Cause I can fry, too, on top of the heap,
My Crisco's as deep as a pool.
Yes, I can broil, too,
My ribs get applause,
My lamb chops will cause you to drool.
For a candied sweet
Or a pickled beet,
Step up to my smorgasbord.
Walk around until
You get your fill.
Baby, you won't ever be bored!
Oh, I'm a paté,
A marron glacé,
A dish you will wish you had took.
And what's more, baby, I can cook!!

no, my post was the lip synching for a summer song sounding the same as the recording from 40 years ago

Me is a meadow meal
And the guess I get it
And the gate I get it
And the game I get it

A wonderful wooden reason
To stand in line, keep in line
Line up, crash the sound
You lose your hand
To understand
The accident is red

You are a fruit fork
And the money you look up
And the madame you look up
And the middle you look up

A wonderful wooden reason
To stand in line, keep in line
Line up, crash the sound
You lose your hand
To understand
The accident is red

The ghosts will spook
The spooks will scare
Why, even Dracula will be there

It's time for games
It's time for fun
Not for just one
But for everyone

The jack-o-lanterns are all lit up
All the dummies are made and stuffed
By just looking you will see
It's this time of year again

It's Halloween

All the kids are happy and gay
There doesn't seem to be a cloud in their way
But when it's over and they've had all their fun
They'll wish that Halloween had just begun

Oh, there are witches, goblins, Frankensteins and zombies
And there are tramps, Cinderallas, pirates, angels and gypsies
So let's have lots of fun and give many cheers
For Halloween comes but once a year

It's Halloween

My daddy is president,
What does your daddy do?
I live in a big white house
On Pennsylvania Avenue.

I always hide behind
The desk in daddy's den
When I play hide-and-seek
With secret service men.

My daddy is president,
We had a busy day.
I'm learning the alphabet:
A-B-C-D-J-F-K.

I don't play house,
I play the game of government.
'Cause my daddy is the president.

At daddy's first press conference,
I made news,
Wearing mommy's high heeled shoes.
And every time I'm able
I'm under the conference table.

My daddy is president,
We make a happy pair.
I go for my pony ride,
He rides in his rocking chair.

No matter what I do
It makes a news event
'Cause my daddy is the president.

This is a song called 'The Circus of Death'
It tells the true story of a circus we met.
The first two verses concern the actual arrival at Heathrow Airport
Of Commissioner Steve McGarrett.

The third emotionally describes a map
Showing the range of the circus.
The fourth and fifth were extracted from an article
In the Guardian of March the 19th, 1962.
The last is a short wave radio message from the last man on Earth.

Nine o'clock flight from Hawaii
The Trident is just touching down
We're waiting here on the tarmac
McGarrett is wearing a frown

He's here to help with a problem
A blood-spattered curse on our land
Please cast your eye over this map, sir
This business is quite out of hand

The circus of death is approaching
Its pathway is painted in red
Before it the frightened and helpless
Behind it a trail of the dead

The narcotic that forges their union
Is a substance known only to one
To the clown it is known as Dominion
It's a secret that he'll give to none

The drug which gives the clown power
Means the circus can never be stopped

And his dream can go on unhindered
'Til the last human being has dropped

Spare me and my family
I've done you no wrong
Go away, please let us be
I've known you for too long

We talk real funny down here

We drink too much and we laugh too loud

We're too dumb to make it in no Northern town

And we're keepin' the niggers down


We got no-necked oilmen from Texas

And good ol' boys from Tennessee

And colleges men from LSU

Went in dumb. Come out dumb too

Hustlin' 'round Atlanta in their alligator shoes

Gettin' drunk every weekend at the barbecues

And they're keepin' the niggers down




We're rednecks, rednecks

And we don't know our ass from a hole in the ground

We're rednecks, we're rednecks

And we're keeping the niggers down

I'm 'enery the 8th, I am
'enery the 8th I am, I am.
I got married to the widow next door,
She's been married 7 times before,
and every one was an 'enery,
She wouldn't love a Willie or a Sam (no Sam! bounce )
I'm 'er 8th old man I'm 'enery,
'enery the 8th I am, I am, ... 'enery the 8th I am.

There is one man in the world
He is from St. Petersburg like us
His life is like 100 milestones
Crucial for our country

He is the only one for us
Everything will come through
All hopes will come true

Let for many more years like before
Strength will prevail in a kind heart
Happy birthday, the President of Russia!

On this day, and at this hour
We wish you from the bottom of our hearts
That everything you dream of will come true

Let for many more years like before,
strength will prevail in a kind heart
Happy birthday, the President of Russia!

The observations of a crow
by Marty Stuart


Newspaper boy makin' his rounds
Spreadin' the word all over town
Drivin' his car just as fast as it will go

There's papers in the driveway, papers in the yard
Paper broke a window, he didn't throw it that hard
But it shattered like a dream down in the valley below

Hey, quarter moon, well how was your night?
Yeah well, any minute now God's gonna hit them brights
So if you stick around, don't you say that you weren't told

Well, take it from me, you better grab your shades
If He looks at you, ooh, well try not to look so afraid
Just do the best that you can, but don't you think that He won't know

Creosote's drippin' from the high line poles
Fast as you can count 'em, 12 in a row
Blessed accommodations for the daily observations of a crow

Well, that cat down there, yeah, well he's Louie the flea
He's married to a waitress by the name of Lora Lee
When they scream and they holler, man they put on a show

He's a protected witness from a Detroit job
Turned his best friend in, his name is Bob
I know who got the time, but who do you think got the dough?

Take a look at that pilgrim passin' by
He's lookin' for love, I can see it in his eyes
He's runnin' 'round in circles, you can take it from me

His shadow begs for mercy that every lost and found
In city after city, town after town
Tortured by the memory of a love he thought was supposed to be

Creosote's drippin' from the high line poles
Fast as you can count 'em, 12 in a row
Blessed accommodations for the daily observations of a crow

Well, I'm a genuine scoopologist, the name is Crow
Sitting up here, watching the show
In this one horse drive-through, forsaken, dried up piece of the world

Well, it ain't much but it's my kingdom, it's my home
Even had a queen till that parakeet came along
Fast talking, loud squawking, green feathered scrak took my girl, later

What's that noise upon the avenue?
What's that crowd a-doin' 'round there too?
What's the meaning of that awful crash?
Has a taxicab got in a smash?

Johnny, Johnny run and get your gun.
Get in quick or you'll be dead, my son.
It would make Napolean quake
And shake his head with fear.

Oh dear, oh dear, just look, look, look who's here;
That ragtime suffragette,
She's no household pet,
Raggin' with bombshells and raggin' with bricks,
Raggin' and naggin' with politics,
That ragtime suffragette,
Ragtime suffragette,

For Lordy, while her husband's wait home to dine,
She's just rag-gin' up and down the line.
A-shoutin' votes, votes, votes for women,
She's a ragtime suffragette.

"Champagne Taste"

Do you wanna take me cruising on an ocean liner to places I long to see?
Well, with my champagne taste and your beer bottle pockets
Don't forget to write me when you get there in your row-boat
When you've paddled across the sea without me

Do you see us dining on caviar and pheasant with decedents of royalty?
Well with my champagne taste and your beer bottle pockets
I'll be having pheasant while you're dining with the peasants
Dunking donuts in a diner without me

You said, "You have ambition to make my dream come true"
Well brother you just keep right on wishing
And all of my dreams will come true, without you

Do you see me in a jaguar with all the accessories
And one of those accessories is you?
Well with my champagne taste and your beer bottle pocket
Take back your jaguar accessories etcetera
And drive back to your dreamland without me

And if I wanted diamonds you'd offer me breakfast at Tiffanie's
And luncheons at Cartier's you'd recommend
Well with my champagne taste and your beer bottle pockets
You will have to work-on something better than a zircon
Because your diamonds of this girl's are worst friend

You said, "You'd promise me anything to make my life a feast"
You didn't give me anything, not even arpege you beast
And it wouldn't surprise me if a lady like Godiva
Had someone like you to give her the stole

For with her champagne taste and your beer bottle pocket
When she couldn't get those dresses
She just let down all her tresses and forgot she was a lady after all

So if you want me to be apart of your permanent employ
Before my champagne fizzles come up with the real McCoy
Show me you can separate the man from the boy
And bring me a constant life of champagne taste

Welcome, my name is Professor Owl.

On my face, there is never a scowl,

For you see I am a happy bird,

I can make a difference word by word.

I will teach you how to love to read,

And for today that’s my good deed.

In my corner, you will find,

Books and news of every kind.

I challenge you to read five pages a day,

And then you can go out play.

Now one time I had this little ol' band back home
A rock and roll band
And we was going to play this job one night
And it weren't too far away so we was walking
But we came upon a long dark stretch of woods
Had an old river running through it
And an old wooden bridge across the river
Well just as I was about to step upon the bridge
Out stepped the troll
A whole mighty troll

And he said: Hey looks like you all are going to play
somewhere
And I said: Yes sir
Cause you always wanna say yes sir to a troll
He said: I hate to mess up your boys job
But I sure could dig hearing ya'all play a little bit
I said: Man we can't just plug up
And play it right here upon the bridge
He said: Why?
And I go: Cause ...
But the troll said: Play!
That's what we did ...

Well the wind was howling at the night
And the moon was covered up with clouds
I was walking cross a bridge on a dirt road
When I heard a troll growl
He said don't you go walking cross my bridge
I am gonna make it tough on you
I am gonna give you swamp fever
You'll be wondering if you're you
Yeah you know you got to pay the toll
Cause even trolls love rock and roll

Uh it will keep you up all night
Drinking and carrying on
Getting it to the swamp music
Get it on - Get it on
Yeah you know you got to pay my toll
Cause even trolls love rock and roll
Yeah

But the troll said: Hey!
He said you boys just ain't getting it
He said would you mind if I borrowed that old guitar?
And showed you all a lick
Since we never heard a troll play we let him have it
And he goes like this ...

I said: Damn troll!
Yeah you know you got to pay the toll
Cause even trolls love rock and roll
Wow

Would you mind if I had my guitar back?
And the troll said: Why?
