Mama always said, “Nothing in life is free, except advice from relatives ‘bout what you need to be.” So you either gotta make a deal, Or you’re gonna beg, cheat, and steal Now how’s that gonna make your mama feel? CHORUS It’s either fast, cheap, or well done Fast, cheap, or well done It’s either fast cheap, or well done Fast, cheap, or well done You’ve gotta pick two, that’s the way they do It’s either fast, cheap, or well done My Daddy always said, “The economy is going south, and it’s a shame that your generation’s gonna get pushed out.” So unless you want to drive a car With just three wheels, and play a broken guitar… You better pay, you better wait, you better wish upon a star ‘Cause it you don’t have the cash Then you better have the time, or you’re gonna get the trash ‘Cause things ain’t made like they were in the past CHORUS Time ain’t on your side You better run, you better hide, you better take my advice Oh, they’ll give you hell So if you want it done right, you better do it all yourself! CHORUS You gotta pick two You gotta pick two You gotta pick two You gotta pick two …or they’ll give you hell!

I love you more than I did yesterday, yesterday, yesterday I love you more than I did yesterday Cause yesterday you kind of pissed me off I need you now more than I needed you then, needed you then, more then I needed you then I need you now more than I needed you then Cause yesterday you kind of pissed me off CHORUS Because you are an emotional rollercoaster And I am tall enough to ride You say that you’ll love me to death But I’m gonna love you to life I want you more than I did yesterday, yesterday, yesterday I want you more than I did yesterday Cause yesterday you kind of pissed me off I adore you more than I did back then, more than I did back then, more than I did back then I adore you more than I did back then Cause yesterday you kind of pissed me off CHORUS love you more than I did yesterday, yesterday, yesterday I love you more than I did yesterday Cause yesterday you REALLY pissed me off

You don’t know what I know And I don’t know about you The way it goes, the way it flows, it ain’t easy in these boots I wake up every morning Feel the sunlight burn my eyes Last night’s music hung me over And today is the reprise There’s some days that I hate it but there’s some days that I love Thats why I would never trade it For the moon and the stars above, above, above CHORUS It’s the lights callin, the lights are callin my name. It’s the stage callin, the stage callin, and I’m stuck in this game Its the road callin, the road is callin my name Its the night callin, the night callin, and I’m stuck in this game There’s a song that’s always playing Dancing round inside my head And the thing it’s always saying Is to sing this song instead… …of just doing what they told you Working at that nine to five In the end they’ll only scold you For just keeping your dream alive, alive, alive CHORUS These lights are taking me somewhere These nights are getting me somewhere These heights are bringing me to the sky These lights are taking me somewhere These nights are getting me somewhere These heights are bringing me to the sky It’s the lights callin, the lights are callin my name. It’s the stage callin, the stage callin, and I’m stuck in this game Its the road callin, the road is callin my name Its the night callin, the nighttime’s callin, and I’m stuck in this game I’m stuck in this game I’ll never leave this game No, no, no

You never miss the water Til your well runs dry I never missed you, daddy Til you said bye bye Try me one more time Try me one more time I’m alone, so alone I'm just about To lose my mind I took your love for granted And I did you wrong Now I want you baby You’ve been gone so long Try me one more time Try me one more time I can’t eat, can’t sleep, I’m just about to lose my mind Til the well runs dry Til the well runs dry You know you never miss your water Til the well runs dry (uh oh, no water) When I saw you, baby And you looked so fine All I could say was That you used to be mine Try me one more time Oh, try me one more time I’m alone, so alone and I’m just about to lose my mind, yeah Til the well runs dry Til the well runs dry You know you never miss your water Til the well runs dry (uh oh, no water) When I saw you, baby And you looked so fine All I could say was That you used to be mine I just sigh, cry I’m just about to lose my mind I took your love for granted And I did you wrong Now I want you baby You’ve been gone so long Try me one more time Try me one more time I’m alone, so alone I’m just about to lose my mind Til the well runs dry Til the well runs dry You know you never miss your water Til the well runs dry (uh oh, no water) When I saw you, baby And you looked so fine All I could say was That you used to be mine Can't eat, can't sleep Just about to lose my mind

I'm Yours 04:40
I sit around, I watch you play, I want to say oh baby, oh baby We lay in bed, I touch your face, I want to say oh baby, oh baby, I’m yours Baby, I’m yours Open the window, feel the breeze upon your skin, oh baby I take my heart, I rent it out for you to real cheap, oh baby Baby, I’m yours CHORUS I want us to climb to the top of the tallest mountain Just so we could look down and see how far we could go And I want to sit on the porch and drink cheap beer with you And I want to swim, until it’s too cold to swim anymore Go to a show, get on the stage, I want to say oh baby, oh baby I sing a song, you do the sound, I want to say oh baby, oh baby I’m yours Baby I’m yours Go round the block, up to your place, you lay me down, oh baby, oh baby Been a long day, I know, but its ok, I’m here for sure, baby. Oh baby, I’m yours CHORUS Through dark and smokey rooms I’ve seen you laughing And on a bright and sunny day I’ve watched you cry But through all of this, I still want your kiss, oh baby Cause when you’re touching me, you make me feel alive CHORUS I sit around, I watch you play, I want to say oh baby, oh baby I take my heart, I rent it out to you for reach cheap, oh baby, oh baby, I’m yours Baby, I’m yours Baby, I’m yours I’m yours

Hey Bartender Pass me a drink The reason that I'm here Is I need time to think All the ways of the world Have really got me down And now I'm asking you To turn my frown around But you’re not my lover You’re not my friend You’re not my baby You ain’t never been No you don’t know me You don’t pay my rent You’re my bartender So let me vent CHORUS All your years of school have led to this My PHD mixologist Dr. Bartender Dr. Bartender Now I need your remedy Prescription for my misery Dr. Bartender Dr. Bartender Hey bartender Sing me a song The reason that I'm here Is cause he did me wrong All the ways of the world Have really messed me up And now I'm asking you To fill up my cup But you’re not my lover You’re not my friend You’re not my baby You ain’t never been No you don’t know me You don’t pay my rent You’re my bartender So let me vent CHORUS Hey bartender…

I may not drive a fancy car I couldn’t pay the bill I may not have a picket fence And I bet I never will I may not have a diamond ring Or go to fancy restaurants But I’ve got things that money can’t buy And this is what I’ve got I travel round the country playing music With the true love of my life and my good friends If time was up and I would go tomorrow id smile knowing this is how it ends I may not have a tiny waist I’ve got a tiny bank account I may not have much couth or grace But I know what living is about I may not have a flat screen Or sail a thirty-nine foot yacht But I’ve got thing that can’t be bought And this is what I’ve got I wake up in the morning when I want to And I go to bed whenever I feel tired I stay out late not worrying about tomorrow And I write a song whenever I’m inspired I may not drive a fancy car I couldn’t pay the bill I may not have a picket fence And I hope I never will

I'm The One 03:17
I don't wanna know about those other gals you've been with (I'm the one for you) I don't wanna know about those other gals you've been with (I'm the one for you) Did she walk the mile? Did she make you smile? Did she want romance? Did she like to dance? Could she sing a song, and go all night long? ….NO Cause I'm the one for you I don't wanna know about those other guys you've been with (I'm the one for you) I don't wanna know about those other guys you've been with (I'm the one for you) Did he hold the door? Did you beg for more? Was he in a band? Did he hold your hand? Did he like to smoke? Could he tell a joke?…..NO Cause I'm the one for you I don't wanna know about those other ones you've been with (I'm the one for you) I don't wanna know about those other ones you've been with (I'm the one for you) Did they make you swoon? Could they keep a tune? Did they laugh out loud? Did they make you proud? Did the fit the glove? Did you fall in love?…..NO Cause I'm the one for you!

They can take my time They might break the key But don’t try to steal my hard earned luck Cause you can’t take that away form me They might take what’s yours Or what was meant to be But don’t touch my pride Don’t steal my life Cause you can’t take that away form me CHORUS Who taught you to take from others What is not rightfully yours? Don’t underestimate the consequence Of getting between a working man’s tools And what he needs them for You might get away For at least another day But don’t count your stars You aint getting far And eventually you’re gonna pay Until then I’m gonna soar With my pedal to the floor You can try to daunt me But it won’t haunt me I’ll always come back for more CHORUS When the time is right and the stakes are high Into the deep, dark night I’m gonna fly I’m gonna get mine, gonna get mine, I’m gonna get mine And when the time is wrong And the stakes are low I’m gonna sing this song And I will let you know I’m gonna get mine, gonna get mine, I’m gonna get mine CHORUS Thou shall not steal How would you feel? Thou shall not steal How would you feel?

LUCKIEST GIRL IN TOWN (THE WEDDING SONG) This day, this day, this day, this day Feels like a dream, like a dream, feels like a dream From the moment I saw you I knew I’d wear this dress And i’d say yes I’d say yes CHORUS I’ll be all tapped out on love songs By the time this one is done So I’m spilling all my mushy thoughts Because you are the one I may be a luck maker Hey, just look around but you’ve made me, officially, the luckiest girl in town This night, this night, this night, this night With everyone that I love, with everyone that I love I’ve never felt such happiness Since the time I said yes Since I said yes CHORUS I can’t imagine a life without you I can’t imagine year without you I can’t even imagine a month, a week without you I’ve got to have you every day I’ve got to have you This life, this life, this life, this life Won’t pass me by, won’t pass me by, won’t pass me by, won’t pass US by Some take more, and some need less But all I want is to say yes I will say yes CHORUS

Hotel Yorba 02:39
I was watching With one eye on the other side I had fifteen people telling me to move I got moving on my mind I found shelter In some thoughts turning wheels around I said 39 times that I love you To the beauty I had found Well its 1 2 3 4 Take the elevator At the hotel yorba I'll be glad to see you later All they got inside is vacancy I been thinking Of a little place down by the lake They got a dirty little road leading up to the house I wonder how long it will take till we're alone Sitting on the front porch of that home Stomping our feet on the wooden boards Never gonna worry about locking the doorWell its 1 2 3 4 Take the elevator At the hotel yorba I'll be glad to see you later All they got inside is vacancy It might sound silly For me to think childish thoughts like these But I'm so tired of acting tough, I'm gonna do what I please Let's get married In a big old room and eat a feast 'Cuz if I'm the one that you love the most, you could say I do at least Well its 1 2 3 4 Take the elevator At the hotel yorba I'll be glad to see you later All they got inside is vacancy And it's 4 5 6 7 Grab your umbrella Grab hold of me Cause your my favourite fella All they got inside is vacancy
