Track Name: Bird Dog
Bird Dog (MacDonell/Robinson/Segui/CStorie)

bird dog my bird dog he never come home
my bird dog my bird dog he's scared of my gun
and once the gun goes off
I lose sight of my bird dog

I fed him the finest food beside the water
and I taught him how to tell the difference between the beavers and the otters
but now my bird dog ain't never come home
no my bird dog bird dog never come home

bird dog my bird dog he don't know his name
but I held out a piece of biscuit well that's when he came
my bird dog don't love me no no no
he just likes me to provide for him give him food to eat

my bird dog my bird dog he found himself a bitch
my bird dog my bird dog had himself a scratch to itch
and now I got bird dogs all around my farm
by the river

my girl was a bird dog she never came home
she was out all night at the tavern singing country songs and doing that crazy dance
and I was out at the farm and I was thinking about the things I had to grow so I could pay my rent on a farm I didn't own
she never came home she never came home

so I took away all the space for my bird dog
and every bird dog that I ever had
I got myself a job as a farm aid
working for a farm that received handout money from farm aid

I was growing something called arugula
that was being exported to China so they could turn it into artificial seal penis pills
it was very complicated it was on the down low but I got paid
and then the worst thing happened to me that I could've ever imagined happened to me

my bird dog came home
I don't want my bird dog no more
my life was pretty good here I've moved on
from my bird dog that never came home

my bird dog my bird dog he came home
my bird dog my bird dog I got no space for this dog
my bird dog my bird dog he did come home
my bird dog my bird dog I thought he was forever to roam
Track Name: Stone in my Shoe
Stone In My Shoe (MacDonell/Robinson/Segui/CStorie)

Collective perplexion locked in a hen's nest
calcium contains the last great riddle of the west
the chicken's an actual chicken wades Plato to the riddle
and the chicken's an actual chicken
I'm gonna steal me a truck gonna drive it to you
I'm gonna shake out my shoes I'm gonna start with empty shoes
I'm gonna steal me a truck gonna drive it to you
I'm gonna shake out my shoes I'm gonna make sure I got some empty shoes
Cos when I come to you I gotta have some new stones in my shoes
No stone in my shoe's gonna cause me distraction
no relationship gone wrong's gonna cause me no pain,
yeah no stone in my shoe's gonna cause me distraction
and no soured up relation's gonna cause me no pain
I'm coming back to you with a new stone in my shoe
Cross the street with a hole in my shoe get a stone to bring back to you
Found my way out to a stony beach found a stone to bring back to you
I've yelled at stones I've yelled at mountains
they all came into my shoe I got a stone to bring home to you
It's almost as good as having a story to tell you
I got the stones from the crust of the earth in its various locations for you
I'm coming back home with a stone in my shoe gonna bring it home to you
But no stone in my boot's gonna cause me discomfort
no relation's gonna cause me no pain,
but no stone in my boot's gonna cause me discomfort
no relation's gonna cause me no pain
Track Name: Dance Monkey Dance
Dance Monkey Dance (Catullus/MacDonell/Robinson/Segui/CStorie)

(Catullus to late don't be sorry you see what's gone that's done that's all
the sunshine those days bright to you you followed and the girl led on
beloved of me as none shall ever be beloved of me as none shall ever be
dancing monkey dancing monkey dance monkey dance)
Put me up on stage boss I'll entertain them
then it's all dance monkey dance
Just give me the big break boss I know I can take 'em
get all eyes on me and it's dance monkey dance
I'll make an ass out of this monkey's ass cos it's dance monkey dance
I got a slightly inflated opinion of my ability to entertain a room of strangers
and it's dance monkey dance
I got a gregarious countenance that goes out but doesn't really bounce nothing back
so dance monkey band
Cos if it's not the monkey it's you and me so dance monkey dance
If we don't have a band got an empty stage then dance monkey dance
That's what it comes down to
when the wizard's making his big choices
and we can't see what lever the wizard's flipping
but out front in the stands it's just dance monkey dance
it's just dance monkey dance every channel
So who pulls the levers? well there's believers and there's nonbelievers
and there's all shades of agnostic and indifferent but
as long as you can polarize most of them
you've got yourself a dynamic then it's dance monkey dance
It's dance monkey dance, it's dance monkey dance, yeah monkey clap your hands
Track Name: If Love is All I Get

but it love's all I get well I'll take the byways and
ah you can have the best of me but ah you really got it in for me

and that would be alright

I'm gonna marry that girl on the green
I'm gonna marry that girl on the green
I'm gonna marry that girl on the green

I don't care what my Maisy's saying
I'm gonna marry that girl who's dancing

one day saw down on the green
saw a girl dancing while I was singing
She did dance while I did sing
not like I'm betrothed to wedding
I'm gonna marry that girl on the green
I'm gonna marry that girl who's dancing
Oh she did dance while I did while I did sing
jig above the mud and dancing
out there in the muddy green
Oklahoma harvest green
Oh I'm gonna marry that girl on the green
I'm gonna marry that girl on the green
I'm gonna marry that girl on the green
gonna marry that girl get her off of that green
Well she had a halo of mud on her gown
mussed up brown mud all around
mussed in a halo of a mudded up brown
she stepped over clover but she never looked down
Down in the valley where I met that girl
thought nobody ever was a'better did twirl
down there just she kept on carrying on
oh I kept singing 'less'n she be all gone
I'm gonna marry that girl on the green
I'm gonna marry that girl on the green
gonna marry that girl get her off of that green
I'm gonna marry that girl on the green
I was a'fearing to blink my eye
I was a'fearing to blink my eye
I was a'fearing to blink my eye
she'd be all gone when the song's a'silent
Sang my song 'til my voice went dry
I sang my song until my voice went dry
apparition was all gone
a'fore I opened up my eye
I asked her daddy but her daddy was drunk
when he did think he thought he thunk
asked her momma instead
but she didn't like men and she carried a gun
I'm not gonna marry that girl on the green
not gonna marry that girl on the green
I'm not gonna marry that girl on the green
gonna marry my safe old Maisy instead
Oh Maisy Maisy lend me your ear and I'll sing a tune for you...
Track Name: Lately Not Now
Lately Not Now (MacDonell/Robinson/CStorie)

Lately not now I've thought of you in that cloud
lately not here I wished that you were near
ooh I have lately but now written beautiful poems I'd send to you
lately not now the time is not
Now now now now now now now now now ooh
Sometimes not this time
I had the time to give you all my time
I reached out and not in
and you didn't grab my hand back and nothing did begin
well lately but not now I had space in my poem books for you
I'd draw our names together I'd sketch flowers
Has anybody seen any flowers lately? has anybody seen any flowers?
I haven't received I haven't delivered has anybody seen any flowers?
I have lately not now I have lately but not now
Track Name: Stars Everlasting (with Jim Storie Juniors)
Stars Everlasting (Emerson/MacDonell/Robinson/CStorie/JStorie)
Well he drank til the stars went out the sun had come up
the birds sang on the walk home
someone remembered he'd left but he couldn't be found
Fell in love with himself but toasted his health
but laughed about it later
but cried when she left him but not for the whole night
Cos it's the stars everlasting and fugitive also
and emulate maudlin
lamp post seeks lightening the firefly's flight
Track Name: Watching the Pelicans Fly Over the Keys
Watching The Pelicans Fly (MacDonell/Robinson/Segui/CStorie)

Darling won't you come with me down on the sargasso sea?
Out over the reef faraway out faraway out at sea
I see the shades of the V one pair of wings in the lead
watching the pelicans fly over the keys
watching the pelicans fly over the keys
and I cling to my reef with the pelicans above me
Lordy lordy he's got pain to kill and what a pain oh lord oh yes it is
darling come let's go down to the Gulf of Mexico
oh darling come with me we'll trip the keys go to sargasso seas
When the pelicans flow
that's when I know it's a safe time to go
out into the sea in my sloop
in my sloop out on the Gulf of Mexico
so pelicans fly
when it's the wrong time all scattered and solo
well then it's time the time is right to draw in the
nets and take home my rowboat
I got pelicans above me
I can tell the time
when the pelicans above me
my reef on the Florida keys
Smells like salt
smells like seaweed
but it's my wharf and it's my reef
and it's my paradise to me
all I've got's the sea
not a storm or a hurricaine
ain't never sharpened a knife and got it in for me
I get along just great me and the sea
I watch the pelicans fly
and think back on my life
the things I got that I didn't need
the people I hurt who ought not to be
And I just think how the pelicans fly
straight line first flips its wings they all flap their wings
fly divine without an ounce of conflict how the pelicans fly
sargasso sea
Track Name: Juice
Juice (MacDonell/Robinson/CStorie)
I came home thirsty I came home tired
I needed some nectar to put into my body that was so tired
Did I want coffee did I want beer no no I wanted some juice
I wanted juice I wanted to have a drink of juice
And what did you tell me? You told me "you didn't want no juice"
Track Name: Undoing
Undoing (MacDonell/Robinson/CStorie)

Man when this hits the fan it's gonna stink
boy I know you're hoping for more but just don't blink
shrug for the growing crowds in the reception
when they appear they're gonna check your works with a comb
Things that are poisining your ruin that's gonna be your undoing.
Quit digging you're looking for meaning where there is none
poisining you're ruining yourself for the big one
just nail that poster to the wall and go look for a better one
well now you growed up you better go out there
and get yourself a dog and get yourself a job
Things that are poisining your ruin that's gonna be your undoing.
Track Name: In a Tree (with Jim Storie Juniors)
In A Tree (MacDonell/Robinson/CStorie/JStorie)

My love return return back and be
when she's low to the ground she is near me
well hello I have found the best of place of places to be
I will dwell in the roots of this tree ooh in a tree
My love work takes me it takes me far from here
I go and seek places of which I'm barely aware
when I go make a door the handle it's of grey mist
oh I dwell in the hopes she'll appear and I'll be kissed ooh in a tree
They're all fine days I count sticks watch the movement of blades
comment on the rain pill at weeds then go home again
when I go to dissolve then go home again to the all
contemplate and drink deep to untangle these branches all ooh in a tree
These days I make a hat and wear it on out
make ponderous steps and still run about
oh you know there's a gnome in a tree by how it arranges
the mists of the clear untangled rays ooh in a tree
Track Name: You Eat What You Are
You Eat What You Are (MacDonell/Robinson/Segui/CStorie)

My boss lied to me said business as usual Sonny,
Sonny Jim Storie Junior, my boss lied to me

Tell you what my boss is gonna get he's gonna get colitis

and misplaced a bunch of decimals and then they took the spreadsheets and they
sent them out and jiggled them around and pretended they had a lot more money

Track Name: Seaweed Sea
Seaweed Sea (MacDonell/Robinson/Segui/CStorie)

What a great way to cap off my bender
I came up on to a police car and now a sign was out on the window that said break and enter
and so break and enter I did and I got behind the wheel of that fine Ford Lincoln police car
and I figured out how to turn on the lights and I turned the engine on real easy like
and I took it out on the road in northern Alabama during a tornado
Out on the seaweed sea footprints of jellyfish I can walk on water out over the seaweed sea
it's red sargasso the seaweed sea it's my home

to shine a light unshone upon the ripples in the trees
reflected upon the lake and let us pause for thought upon each new beginning
and it moves me baby well wait before you leap
and take stock of those around you and me who have also emerged from the same deep muck
and each sheet of dust and each new layer of soil is lit from within
by the treasures unearthed within well that attunes me baby

Oh I wouldn't change a thing or set you stray
I'd see to it the things that people need
will get done with right I've seen the light vote for Benny Mudd and I just might
move you baby well I'm gonna run
It's in the mountains it's lit
so if that's all the ends you need from it
the measure of the mountain and the treasure you espouse
well that's fine with you but me I'm happy to
just keep here digging baby well that attunes me baby
Well it moves me baby well it moves you baby
