1. Let Loose

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

Vocals by Jeffrey Alan Bennet, Lector Morales, and John Paul Sharp

 

Lector:

I'm just tired of these damn bills comin' up all the time ...

So I'm gonna' let loose!

I'm gonna' have me a great time.

 

JP:

Oh! Come on, Oh! Come on, Oh! Come on.

I called her up, I said, "Good news"

And she replied to me, "Get a job!"

 

Jeffrey:

Venting, Destruction, Trying to get some action

Venting, Distraction, Reaching Satisfaction

Venting, Destruction, Trying to get some action

Venting, Distraction, Reaching Satisfaction

 

JP:

'Ere is my job, is my job

'Ere is my job, is my job, is my job

It ain't worth it, it ain't working, it ain't working out, not right now

so I will sing this song and just let loose

 

Lector:

So I'm gonna' let loose!

I'm gonna' have me a great time.

 

JP:

Oh! Come on, Oh!

 

Jeffrey:

Venting, Destruction, Trying to get some action

Venting, Distraction, Reaching Satisfaction

Venting, Destruction, Trying to get some action

Venting, Distraction, Reaching Satisfaction

 

JP:

'Ere is my job, is my job

'Ere is my job, is my job, is my job

It ain't working, it ain't working out, not right now

so I'll just pop out the scotch and let loose

 

Lector:

So I'm gonna' let loose!

I'm gonna' have me a great time.

 

JP:

Oh! Come on, Oh! Come on, Oh! Come on.

hoodoo hoodoo hoodoo hoodoo

 

you're trying to take it away!

what'd i ever do to you?

i been nice about this all day!

 

how can put a price on wishes from my genie lamps?

how can you put a price on wishes from my genie lamps?

i got that horseshoe at the Kansas State Fair - I met a pretty girl there

she meant everything to me! everything to me!

ev'ry - ev'ry - thing to me - thing to me

 

oh, my lucky rabbit's feet! oh, my lucky rabbit's feet!

oh, my lucky rabbit's feet! oh, my lucky rabbit's feet!

rabbit's feet! rabbit's rabbit's feet feet feet feet feet feet feet feet

 

don't touch that! don't touch that! don't touch that!

don't touch that! don't touch that! don't touch that!

no, not that one, anything but that one, i need to take a shower

i'm tired ...

 

everyone! get out! get out, get out, get out!

everyone! get out! I need my lucky charms!

everyone! get out! get out, get out, get out!

everyone! get out! I need my lucky charms!

everyone! get out! get out, get out, get out!

everyone! get out! I need my lucky charms!

 

everyone get out of here, leave me alone!

do you know how priceless that is? i can't handle this.

handle this, ugh, i can't handle this, ugh

handle this, ugh, i can't handle this, ugh

 

i'm tired of all you people being in my space

they'll never let me down like you do

never let me down like they did

i don't have to take this shit

that's the rabbit's foot i got when ... i was ...

Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

JP:

my favorite day at the dollar store

let the devil run, let the angels fly

the lumberjacks, I found them in my pocket

 

i let them out, they was choppin' some wood,

they were singing they songs and they asked if they could sing for me

 

Jeffrey:

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, herd'n gurd'n

 

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, herd'n gurd'n

 

JP:

on my way to work i was on the bus

and the lumberjacks were on my lap

"Talk to me!" they said

"I don't wanna' go to work today, I don't think I got it it within me"

They said, "Okay. Just work and we'll sing!"

 

Jeffrey:

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, herd'n gurd'n

 

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, herd'n gurd'n

 

JP:

i took lunch out on the beach with a picnic basket

full of treats for my lumberjacks - they was hungry

 

when ev'rybody was full, I sat them down and asked them,

"Could we stay this way forever, please?"

 

"Nothing lasts forever, not even lumberjacks.

Take our advice and go to work, you lazy ass!"

 

I was ready to go - I was ready to put them in my pocket -

they said, "No. We must be on our way."

I just wanted to hide, but they said, "It's alright.

We can stay to sing!"

 

(please don't leave me all alone a'here one more time just me n' the guys singin' a song, just my guys and I)

 

Jeffrey:

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, herd'n gurd'n

 

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, gerden

herd'n gurd'n, herd'n gurd'n
