___________________________________________ FOR THE LOVE OF PETE The news spread fast on Sideways Pier that Captain Pete had disappeared They said his bark had run aground and his crew could not be found He’d gone a sailing in pursuit of guns and rum and Spanish loot but anything can happen on the deep, deep blue sea Now Sally Doogan loved that man despite his tendency to cheat, love of drink, rotten temper, stinky feet, missing teeth And though she’d never been to sea she swore to rescue Pete. She bought a sloop and named it Belle and bid her simple life farewell as anything can happen on the deep, deep blue sea Their first day out a storm befell upon that poor ship Belle The second day they lost their way in fog and heavy swells Undeterred they spent the third mending line and sail On the fourth they made some progress till they bumped into that whale The giant creature slapped his flukes and took a look around And as he dove beneath their hull he sang a lovely sound Every hand scanned the sea concerned of his return That’s when they saw the pirate ships coming up astern Oh for the love, oh for the love Oh for the love, oh for the love Those scoundrels sought to seize Sal’s sloop but in their midst there came a whoosh the whale exhaled, the rogues were spooked, their leader begged a truce So Sally commandeered their fleet replete with gold to Port Royal There’s danger but there’s booty on the deep, deep blue sea On shore the captain Sally spied two rum-soaked wenches by his side And in a flash she saw the truth She’d rather be a mariner than married to that brute! So drink up Hearties, rest a spell for now we’re rich with tales to tell Tomorrow we’ll be back upon the deep, deep blue sea ____________________________________________

____________________________________________ ARE YE SLEEPIN', MAGGIE? Mirk and rainy is the nicht, there's no' a staum in a' the carry Lichtnin's gleam athwart the lift, and cauld winds drive wi' winters fury. Oh, are ye sleeping Maggie Oh, are ye sleeping Maggie let me in, for loud the linn is howling ower the warlock Craigie. Fearfu' soughs the boortree bank, the rifted wood roars wild and dreary Loud the iron yett does clank, the cry of hoolits mak's me eerie. Chorus Abune ma breath, I daurnae speak, for fear I rouse your waukrife Daddy Cauld's the blast upon my cheek, O rise, O rise my bonnie lady. Chorus She's ope'd the door, she's let him in, she's cuist aside his dreepin plaidie Blaw yer warst ye rain and wind, for Maggie noo I'm an aside ye. Chorus A Noo since your waukin' Maggie, noo since yer waukin' Maggie What care I for hoolits cry, for boortree bank or warlock Craigie Chorus ____________________________________________

Heaven on This Earth Supposin' there's no home on high no great beyond up in the sky no hereafter after all Well then I want this world to be a a paradise, a place of peace I want heaven on this earth I want a band of angels in my backyard singing to the neighborhood, Heavenly shores out my front door milk and honey at the corner store My just rewards might be just this a chance to live, a touch of bliss revelation in a song I don't want war, I don't want greed no more hunger or disease I want heaven on this earth I want a band of angels in my backyard singing to the neighborhood, Heavenly shores out my front door milk and honey at the corner store I don't want war, I don't want greed no more hunger or disease I want heaven on this earth Yes I want this world to be a paradise, a place of peace, I want heaven on this earth I want a band of angels in my backyard singing to the neighborhood, Hallelujah glory be this here's the promised land

_________________________________________ THE CARDS ON THE TABLE The cards are on the table For everyone to see that the Queen loves her Jack And the Jack his Queen The King doesn’t notice perhaps he doesn’t care He’s too busy winning money and counting up his share The Ace of Hearts is shocked as is the Deuce of Spades All the Diamonds and the Clubs start to feel disarrayed The King, slightly miffed looks up from his hoard saying “Shuffle and deal. I’m a very busy lord!” The cards are on the table For everyone to see that the Queen loves her Jack And the Jack his Queen Yes, the Queen has her Jack and the Jack his Queen While the King counts his money assiduously ____________________________________________

It was Mardi Gras when I first saw him sitting outside my door Just a street dog with some loving ways I had to let him in when he wagged his tail Some time has passed since we first hmm hmm sleeping inside my door Now he's my sweet dog with those loving ways I always let him in when he wags that tail.

____________________________________________ SHAKE THOSE BONES Oh aye, this life is a mystery What happens next is anyone's guess It's a game of chance, luck and happenstance Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose Shake those bones, shake ‘em and roll ‘em Shake those bones, shake ‘em and call Shake those bones, shake ‘em and roll ‘em Shake those bones, how will they fall? ____________________________________________
