1. 33 Dreams About 333 Things Plus Fortunes

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

I dreamed 33 dreams about 333 things.

I dreamed 33 dreams about 333 things

In just one night …

 

What’s this I see?

Coming to me?

Lord let me breathe, I can’t believe!

 

Lugubrious Day

For the Jeuness D’orre, hey!

Carpe diem right to the end!

 

Fortunes are told and fortunes are sold

On the backs of yesterday.

 

“Keep it quiet, ‘till the spell is broken!”

Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!

Carefully step away from the schadenfreude!

 

“And even if you didn’t say it right,

You got the chance to sing it anyway!”

Laugh and cry and laugh and cry again

And laugh and cry and then take of your shirt, again

And just give ‘em a couple more shots

Couple more shots, or whatever

And with luck and a couple more

Muthafuckin’ kick-ass hits!

 

“That’s totally hot.”

 

No grace in this land

When you’re coming this fast

Nothing but classy gas from here!

 

‘Cause fortunes are told and fortunes are sold

On the backs of yesterday.

2. Keep It Sexy

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

Let me tell you this world is full of creeps

And the bitter outnumber the sweet

Nobody gives a damn anymore …

 

Everybody’s so rude and unawares

With their cell phones attached to their heads

We could just throw up

We could just throw up

 

But we

Don’t we

Have the

Antidote we

 

Can’t go wrong … no!

 

When we be shopping at the grocery store

We keep it sexy, we keep it sexy

We keep it sexy in the name of Love

That’s just what we all about

 

Even at night you can’t avoid the shitty stares

Of the feeling and the caring impaired

They are not alive, they are dead.

 

So if you are the kind of gal or kind of guy

Who’d be willing to give it a try

Come and sing along, Come and sing along, please.

 

If you dare, we are

Almost there, we are

 

Just about to start again …

 

When we be rubbin’ nubs up in the club

We keep it sexy, we keep it sexy

We keep it sexy in the name of Love

That’s just what we all about

 

Start again …

 

When we be rubbin’ nubs up in the club

We keep it sexy, We keep it sexy

We keep it sexy in the name of Love

That’s just what we all about

That’s just what we all about

3. 2 Kool 4 Skool

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

I work hard and I work every day

I make my money in an every day way

I bring the bacon home because I must pay my own way every day

C’est la vie, it’s okay.

 

I’m not trying to be better than you

Not trying to be 2 kool 4 skool

Just trying to do the best I can for my friends who content to defend my back end.

 

So you can pack up your drama you can save it for your mama

I’ve got some problems of my own, it’s true, I really do! buh buh buh!

 

I likes to mind my own business, you see,

‘Cause sometimes that’s just the best way to go for me

But if you really need me there to be, to be there, there for you

Count to three’s all you do

 

All I ask is you be real some how

All I ask is you be right here right now

Don’t play the game that plays the players right down to the bone.

It’s the worst way to go, don’t you know?

 

P up your drama you can save it for your mama

I’ve got some problems of my own, it’s true, I really do! buh buh buh!

 

So you can pack up your drama you can save it for your mama

I’ve got some problems of my own, it’s true, I really do! buh buh buh!

 

Wa bwa wa bwa bwa wa bwa bwa!

4. A Song for Lydia

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

This song is dedicated to Lydia.

 

Lydia’s training in the First Platoon

She’s so amazing, she’s gonna fight for our lives, me and you!

I know that she’ll do good, just because I love her.

 

Lydia’s gaining, would you just look at her go!

She’s not complaining, she’s just facing a nation of woe.

I know how far she’ll go, just because I love her.

 

Oooh, please come home soon,

‘Cause we miss you and we want you back in one piece, to boot!

Oooh, please come home soon,

’Cause we miss you and we want you back in one piece …

 

Lydia’s training in the First Platoon

She’s so amazing, she’s gonna’ fight for our lives, me and you!

I know that she’ll do good, just because I love her.

 

Lydia’s gaining, would you just look at her go!

She’s not complaining, she’s just facing a nation of woe.

I know how far she’ll go, just because I love her.

5. Ghost of an Ex-Boyfriend

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

My ghost of an ex-boyfriend,

He knows what’s in the next dimension.

He goes every where I go.

 

And 1st Corinthians has been with me since the end of his life.

And 1st Corinthians will haunt me ‘till the end of time.

 

What can I do to cancel this devotion?

I’m through with living in slow motion.

I’ve tried to say all my goodbyes!

 

He follows me around and wallows in the sound of my voice.

He sits atop my bed and watches me undress …

 

Oh God, come tell this man why he must understand

Oh God, come take this man away as fast as you can

Oh, we are no longer to be!

For I am alive

And he is dead.

 

When love carries over to the other side,

Just be wary of the one who died,

If he can’t let go!

Can’t let go!

 

What can I do to cancel this devotion?

I’m through with living in slow motion.

I’ve tried to say all my goodbyes!

 

And 1st Corinthians has been with me since the end of his life.

And 1st Corinthians will haunt me ‘till the end of time

End of time

End of

Time.

6. Back on the Patches

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

In a desert with my mom, singin’ songs about the rain

Horses gallopin’ along, big as houses on a plain

Whinnying, brilliant, with us.

 

Cyclones travellin’ across sandy mountains, more like waves

Sand that swallows you right whole, pretty like a face

Wonderful, terrible things

 

Well, I’m back on the patches again

Patches are my new best friends

And patches will be with me from here to eternity

Oh well, I guess, such is life.

 

Two gay dads are Daniel’s rents, flirting heavily with me

Want to get me to reveal, want to steal identity

“Just sign in on our calendar, okay?”

 

See the problem is, I’m lost, been distracted by the sun.

I’ve been looking for my car like I’m living on the run!

In a galaxy, not very far away.

 

Well, I’m back on the patches again

Patches are my new best friends

And patches will be with me from here to eternity

Oh well, I guess, such is life.

 

You can say you’re sorry ‘till you cry.

You can say you’re sorry, but you lie.

You can say you’re sorry for the rest of your life.

 

Life is funny when you think of how we think that

Life is easy to control – I can tell you it ain’t so.

Truthfully, with a splash of Lime.

 

Confidence is just a trigger for another trick

Lets you slip right through an old trap door, lickety-split!

Blind to see, cliff is just ahead.

 

Woah, woah, woah

 

Well, I’m back on the patches again

Patches are my new best friends

And patches will be with me from here to eternity

Oh well, I guess, such is life.

 

Well, I’m back on the patches again

Patches are my new best friends

And patches will be with me from here to eternity

Oh well, I guess, such is life.

7. Using Dreams

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

I had a dream, a using dream

Dreamt like this before.

Smoking things, like cigarettes,

Even though I smoke no more.

 

Couldn’t stop myself, lord you know I tried

All I wanted was a night of sleep with peace of mind

 

Why

Do I cry

When I wake up

I will be

Safe from

Me

In my –

 

Smoking dreams are killing me!

Why’d I even quit the stuff?

If I can’t escape until I awake

Baby, I have had enough!

 

Maybe this is what I get

Get for getting into cigarettes

 

Why

Do I cry

When I wake up

I will be

Safe from

Me

In my –

 

Maybe this is what I get

Get for getting into cigarettes

 

Why

Do I cry

When I wake up

I will be

Safe from

Me

In my dreams, my smoking dreams.

8.  Drama Queen

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

No matter if I scream of if I shout,

Nobody listens.

Nobody ever tries to hear me out

To what I’m all about.

I’m feeling so ignored!

I’m feeling downright bored with this behavior!

 

They say the reason why is that I cry

To get attention.

Believe me when I say that I could die!

And did I mention,

Two little dreadful words some one said to hurt my feelings even more?

 

Oh, Drama Queen! Oh, Drama Queen!

Drama Drama Drama Drama

Save the Drama for your Mama!

That is all I hear from people!

Oh, Drama Queen! Oh, Drama Queen!

Drama Drama Drama Drama

Maybe I can save my momma,

Only if you’d give me one more chance!

 

Gimme’ one more chance!

 

I’ll get it right without a fight and

If you don’t let me try, I might just have to cry once more again!

Cry once more again!

9.  Third Time's a Charm

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

 

Picking over four leaf clovers

Seemed like such a good idea until …

I picked them all apart, all apart.

 

Second glances and second chances

Never did much good for me until …

I threw it all away!

 

Hey, what can I say?

Every day is a brand new day!

And what could be the harm?

After all, they say,

“Third Time is a Charm!”

 

Mama told me, rather coldly

Don’t expect to truly ‘Get it’ until …

The ‘Got’ is ‘Good and Gone, Good and Gone.”

 

In my life ma’s my light so

I look forward to my failures until ….

The day I get it right!

 

Hey, what can I say?

Every day is a brand new day!

And what could be the harm?

After all, they say,

“Third Time is a Charm!”

 

Hey, what can I say?

Every day is a brand new day!

And what could be the harm?

After all, they say,

“Third Time is a Charm!”

 

Hey, what can I say?

Every day is a brand new day!

And what could be the harm?

After all, they say,

“Third Time is a Charm!”
