Cows With Guns Dana Lyons

Cows With Guns

Fat and docile, big and dumb

They look so stupid

They aren't much fun

Cows aren't fun

They eat to grow

Grow to die

Die to be ate

At the hamburger fry

Cows well done

Nobody thunk it

Nobody knew

No one imagined

The great cow guru

Cows are one

He hid in the forest

Read books with great zeal

He loved Che Guevera

A revolutionary veal

Cow Tse Tongue

He spoke about…

Ride The Lawn Dana Lyons

RIDE THE LAWN

By Dana Lyons

My Grandpa was a cowboy and his pa before him

They rode the range, killed the buffalo and fought the Indian

But the great herds on the prairie and the wild frontier is gone

So to carry on my heritage, I go out and ride the lawn

Chorus:

Ride the lawn, ride the lawn

Here on my quarter acre lot I sing my freedom song

Ride the lawn, ride the lawn

We’ll hunt the dandelion down and wack him till he’s gone

My…

I'm A Werecow

Werecow - Flippy T. Fishead

There's a full moon in the pasture tonight

Hangs like a fine and polished pearl, so pure and white

The average guy finds so much beauty in its light

But I'm a werecow

Moo moo moo

I'm a werecow

Now I'm stuck

It seemed so innocent when Bossy bit my hand

I was just tryin' to milk her, but I didn't understand

That Bossy really was Pierre the handyman

He was a werecow

Moo moo moo

He was a…

Jerry Wallace The Song That Nobody Sings

The Song that Nobody Sings

Jerry Wallace

In the dry dusty desert a wild flower grows that puts all the others to shame,

Far away in the desert where nobody goes the flower that has no name.

In the whisky soaked mind of an old minstrel man there's a ballad of peace and good will,

A warm welcome song that the world wants to hear but the voice of the minstrel is still.

Chorus

So drink to the wild flower nobody knows

And the sorrow that loneness…

This Is All I Ask ...John McDermott

As I end the prime of my life, I find I have the time of my life

Learning to enjoy at my leisure all the simple pleasures

And so I happily concede

That this is all I ask, this is all I need

Beautiful girls, walk a little slower when you walk by me

Lingering sunsets, stay a little longer with the lonely sea

Children everywhere, when you shoot at bad men, shoot at me

Take me to that strange, enchanted land grown-ups seldom…

When I Grow Too Old To Dream... John McDermott

We have been gay, going our way

Life has been beautiful, we have been young

After you've gone, life will go on

Like an old song we have sung

When I grow too old to dream

I'll have you to remember

When I grow too old to dream

Your love will live in my heart

So, kiss me my sweet

And so let us part

And when I grow too old to dream

That kiss will live in my heart

And when I grow too old to dream

That kiss will live in my…

Aurora Borealis

Artist: C.w. Mccall

Album: Wilderness

One night last summer we were camped at ten thousand feet up where the air is clear, high in the rockies of lost lake, Colorado. and as the fire burned low and only a few glowing embers remained

We laid on our backs all warm in our sleeping bags and looked up at the stars.

And as I felt myself falling into the vastness of the universe, I thought about things, and places, and times.

I thought about the time my grandma told…

I Wish You Peace

Eagles – I Wish You Peace Lyrics

I wish you peace when the cold winds blow

Warmed by the fire's glow

I wish you comfort in the, the lonely time

And arms to hold you when you ache inside

I wish you hope when things are going bad

Kind words when times are sad

I wish you shelter from the, the raging wind

Cooling waters at the fever's end

I wish you peace when times are hard

The light to guide you through the dark

And when…

Don't Go To Sleep On The Road

Don't Go To Sleep On The Road

Shel Silverstein

Well, big John Henry Rucker

He was a greasy motor trucker

And he drove them big ol' diesels to L.A.

Drivin' outta Mobile

His darlin' wife, Camille

She would kiss him in his driveway

And she'd say

She'd…

The Future..and comment to Making America Great again..With Out You

The Future by Leonard Cohen R.I.P.

Give me back my broken night

My mirrored room, my secret life

It's lonely here,

There's no one left to torture

Give me absolute control

Over every living soul

And lie beside me, baby

That's an order

Give me crack and anal sex

Take the only tree that's left

And stuff it up the hole

In your culture

Give me back the Berlin wall

Give me Stalin and St. Paul

I've seen the future,…

The Unbounded Spirit

The Weapon of Fear: How They Use Fear to Manipulate You

BY SOFO ARCHON



“He who has overcome his fears will truly be free.” ~Aristotle

Since we were born, society has always imposed on us what to do, what to think and what to feel, and if we don’t follow society, then we are bound to get in trouble.

Parents taught us to behave in certain ways. If we did so, they would reward us, and if we didn’t, they would punish us. Naturally,…

Everybody Knows..Leonard Cohen

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded

Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed

Everybody knows that the war is over

Everybody knows the good guys lost

Everybody knows the fight was fixed

The poor stay poor, the rich get rich…

The World I used To Know..Rod McKuen

The World I used To Know

Some day some old familiar rain

Will come along and know my name.

And then my shelter will be gone

And I'll have to move along.

But 'till I do I'll stay awhile

And track the hidden country of your smile.

Some day the man I used to be

Will come along and call on me.

And then because I'm just a man,

You'll find my feet are made of sand.

But 'till that time I'll tell you lies

And chart the hid-den…

I'm Glad That I'm Not Young Anymore

I'M GLAD I'M NOT YOUNG ANYMORE

From "Gigi" (1958)

(Lyrics : Alan Jay Lerner / Music : Frederick Loewe)

Poor boy! Poor boy!

Down-hearted and depressed and in a spin

Poor boy! Poor boy!

Oh, youth can really do a fellow in!

How lovely to sit here in the shade

With none of the woes of man and maid

I'm glad I'm not young anymore

The rivals that don't exist at all

The feeling you're only two feet tall

I'm glad that I'm not young…

A Wandrin' Star From Paint Your Wagon by Lerner & Lowe

i was born under a wandrin' star

I was born under a wandrin' star

Wheels are made for rolling, mules are made to pack

I've never seen a sight that didn't look better looking back

I was born under a wandrin' star

Life can make you prisoner and the plains can bake you dry

Snow can burn your eyes, but only people make you cry

Home is made for coming from, for dreams of going to

Which with any luck will never come true

I was born under a…

L'ENVOI by Robert W Service

You who have lived in the Land,

You who have trusted the trail;

You who are strong to withstand,

You who are swift to assail;

Songs have I sung to beguile,

Vintage of desperate years

Hard as a harlot's smile,

Bitter as unshed tears.

Little of joy or…

COMFORT Robert W Service

Say! You've struck a heap of trouble—

Bust in business, lost your wife;

No one cares a cent about you,

You don't care a cent for life;

Hard luck has of hope bereft you,

Health is failing, wish you'd die—

Why, you've still the sunshine left you,

And the big, blue sky.

Sky so…

The Reckoning by Robert W Service

The Reckoning

By Robert W. Service

It’s fine to have a blow-out in a fancy restaurant,

With terrapin and canvas-back and all the wine you want;

To enjoy the flowers and music, watch the pretty women pass,

Smoke a choice cigar, and sip the wealthy water in your glass.

It’s bully in a high-toned joint to eat and drink your fill,

But it’s quite another matter when you

Pay the bill.

It’s great to go out every night on fun or pleasure…

In A Yugo

In a Yugo Lyrics

As the snow flies

At a used car lot on the edge of town

A liberal guy and a liberal gal

Buy a Yugo

And they drive with pride

Cause if there's one thing that this world needs

It's environmental friends who'll take the lead

In a Yugo

They say, "people don't you understand

Those suburbans are ruining the land"

But they'll wish they had a full size van one day

They point fingers at you and…

Bringing Buddy Home John McDermott

Somewhere between earth and heaven

The C-17 flies,

Heading westward homeward

Through clean, clear, safe blue skies

At the back of the airplane

Lying alone

Draped in his country’s flag

They’re bringing Buddy home.

Somewhere between tears and…
