CLEAN THIS HOUSE - Piece of your ghost stuck in my toaster All of the other ghosts are gone CLEAN THIS HOUSE - Pieces must be lonely when I vacuum up their friends Send them to wherever they belong A piece of your ghost was in my closet And then I saw it wander down the hall Found another one … havin’ lots of fun Scaring all the neighbours with telephone calls - Here’s another piece of your ghost - Ooh yeah - CLEAN THIS HOUSE - Here’s another piece of your ghost - ooh yeah - CLEAN THIS HOUSE - Piece of your ghost lurking in the kitchen Going through the cupboards while I sleep CLEAN THIS HOUSE - The poor thing must be starving, getting no attention Fighting with the fruit flies over sweets A piece of your ghost in the shower Winking at me through the steam And here’s another one having lots of fun Tryin’ to take racy pictures of me Here’s a private show for a piece of your ghost - Ah yeah - CLEAN THIS HOUSE - Here’s another piece of your ghost - ooh yeah - CLEAN THIS HOUSE - CLEAN THIS HOUSE A piece of your ghost in the shower Winking at me through the steam And here’s another one having lots of fun Tryin’ to take racy pictures of me Watch me drink a toast with a piece of your ghost - Ooh yeah - CLEAN THIS HOUSE - Here’s another piece of your ghost - ah yeah - CLEAN THIS HOUSE - Here’s another piece of your ghost CLEAN THIS HOUSE Here’s another piece of your ghost CLEAN THIS HOUSE A toast to the ghost with the most CLEAN THIS HOUSE Here’s another piece of your ghost Lyrics & Music (c)2020 Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media 2020 horacemedia@gmail.com

Sleep tight (don’t let the bedbugs bite) Long dark night (don’t let the bedbugs bite) This bed of nails Keeps me up all night I toss and turn all the time Is this the end Catch and release Weight of my world crushing me What I wanted never heard me calling So down the road I go To a long dark night for my soul A long dark night (don’t let the bedbugs bite) Here is a key That won’t unlock the door Caught in the middle of a war More than a trace Of something in my glass Warring factions start to clash Nobody’s gonna see my white flag Lamp burns too low It’ll be a long dark night for my soul A long dark night … yeah yeah A long dark night - What I wanted never heard me calling So down the road I go To a long dark night - Nobody ever saw my white flag So nobody needs to know Just a long dark night for my soul A long dark night Long dark night Long dark night - long dark night Lyrics & Music(c)2020 Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media

High school classroom - who walks in A sub for Mr. Summersby She wrote her name up on the blackboard Thought I saw her wink at me Small town boy in a big, big city I’d never seen an angel before Caught my eye in a big, big way The moment she walked through the door She stopped me in the hallway Wants to see me right after school I said I could write an essay on you Are you thinking of making a pass - Miss Malloy Is there anybody waiting at home - Miss Malloy I’ve been a bad, bad boy I’ve been a bad, bad boy Danger contents - nice facade Little Miss Catastrophe Smell her perfume down the hall Detention room is calling me Wild-eyed kid in a big, big city I’d never seen an angel before Now I know what they mean about a five-alarm fire I felt it when she walked through the door She stopped me in the hallway Wants to see me right after school I said I could write an essay on you Are you thinking of making a pass - Miss Malloy Is there anybody waiting at home - Miss Malloy I’ve been a bad, bad boy A bad, bad boy She stopped me by my locker She wants to see me right after school I said let me write an essay for you - yeah, you Are you thinking of making a pass - Miss Malloy Is there anybody waiting at home - Miss Malloy Are you thinking of making a pass - Miss Malloy Is there anybody waiting at home - Miss Malloy A bad, bad boy - A bad, bad boy — RJ’s been a bad, bad boy Lyrics & Music(c)2020 Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media 2020

I closed my eyes for a second Go within - explore a bit Such a clean cut mind for a sinner Love was just the game I longed to play - participate I found myself right in it for a minute And when the sun came out to play I was in it - In my life the dark clouds stay For a minute - And then it’s bye-bye … bye-bye Oh, if I open up my eyes Take a peek - dive in deep Rummage ‘round inside for a minute If it rains on my parade I go indoors - mind the storm Atmosphere will change in a minute And when the sun came out to play I was in it - In my life the dark clouds stay For a minute - Such a clean cut life For a sinner- This normality could change Any minute … and then it’s bye-bye Ooh … in a minute Ooh … in a minute And when the sun came out to play I was in it - In my life the dark clouds stay For a minute - Such a clean-cut life For a sinner- This normality could change Any minute … and then it’s bye-bye In a minute - in a minute … in a minute … in a minute In a minute Lyrics & Music (c)2020 Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media 2020

Crocodile Tears - Crocodile Tears Crocodile Tears - Crocodile Tears You mope around like you lost me In your little game, you put me in play Never asked you to want me You break hearts - I’m breaking away That’s enough of those silly love songs Playing in my head all night That’s enough of those burning questions Running through my mind - Like, baby, why - the crocodile tears You picked the angles - you played them all You should be fine … you weren’t happy here Why are you crying crocodile tears Oh baby - cry - you cry - crocodile tears - crocodile tears Glad you got what you wanted By taking the time to make up your mind Your calculations were off, babe The next one in line just left you behind Well that’s enough of those silly love songs Playing in my head all night That’s enough of those burning questions Running through my mind - Like, baby, why - the crocodile tears You picked the angles - you played them all You should be fine … you weren’t happy here Why are you crying crocodile tears Oh baby - cry - you cry - crocodile tears Don’t you cry - cry - crocodile tears Crocodile Tears - Crocodile Tears Crocodile Tears - Crocodile Tears Like, baby, why - the crocodile tears You played the angles - you played them all You should be fine … you weren’t happy here Why are you crying crocodile tears Well don’t you cry those crocodile tears You played the angles - you played them all You should be fine … you weren’t happy here Why are you crying crocodile tears ( Plenty more crocodile tears where those came from …) Lyrics & Music (c)2020 Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media 2020

I dance at midnight With a blanket of sky They’ve asked - the stars want to see you Asked me about you Whispered secrets in my ear Oh, the stars - the stars want to meet you I gathered stardust To sprinkle ‘round your room Waltzed in while you were sleeping I noticed you were dreaming Come and dance - the stars want to see you I do a jig Ask the stars what they’d like They wink - the stars want to see you They’ve asked the moon To be on her brightest bright Oh you’ll shine - so brightly when they greet you I gathered stardust To sprinkle ‘round your room Waltzed in while you were sleeping I noticed you were dreaming Come and dance - the stars want to see you Ooh, the stars - the stars want to see you Oh, the stars - the stars want to see you So here’s some stardust I sprinkled ‘round your room Waltzed in while you were sleeping I noticed you were dreaming, hey Come and dance - the stars want to see you I gathered stardust To sprinkle ‘round your room Waltzed in while you were sleeping I noticed you were dreaming Come and dance - the stars want to see you Come and dance The stars want to see you Lyrics & Music (c)2020 Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media 2020

This path we walk Won’t always be easy Make our mistakes and fumble along Don’t feel lost You’re never forsaken When you feel the will is gone Oh, the night - is not for fearing And darkness, not a jackal Here to hound your soul The light shines from above When it’s time to move on faith alone The eyes that cry Oh, they can heal you They find the pain deep down inside Look to your brothers Look to your sisters Let them heal the heart with time Oh, the night - is never empty And darkness, not a thief Here to rob your soul Gifts come from above When it’s time to move on faith alone Because the night - is for the weary Here’s a quiet stream Just beside the road You’ll recognize the blessing When it’s time to move on faith alone Because the night - is for the weary Here’s a quiet stream Just beside the road You’ll recognize the blessings When it’s time to move on faith alone Lyrics & Music(c)2020 Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media 2020

Blow your horn .. ah, yeah - On the black road that leads east There’s a pail beside an old stone well Where the saviour as a child would draw the water When the face of one who looked back On the cities of sin and evil Bore a sour smile and then it was no more Well you can - pack up my tents You fetch my wine and water I will waste out in the desert Before I’d hear that angry roar .. When Gabriel blows his horn Every wall will rattle and shake When Gabriel blows his horn One blast - all it takes .. When Gabriel blows his horn .. yeah, yeah There’s a wall near Tel Mediggo` With blood that stains but never dries A sailor from Damascus who would wander Every evening down the cobbled streets With glowing lantern held up high A bandage round a head that held no eyes Fuck yeah .. You pack up my tents You fetch my wine and water I will waste out in the desert Before I’d hear that angry roar .. When Gabriel blows his horn Every wall will rattle and shake When Gabriel blows his horn One blast - all it takes — When Gabriel blows his horn .. yeah, yeah Gabriel blows his horn .. Well, you can .. pack up my tents You fetch my wine and water I will waste out in the desert Before I’d hear that angry roar .. When Gabriel blows his horn Every wall will rattle and shake Every wall will rattle and shake Every wall will rattle and shake In other words .. a whole lotta rattling and shaking .. possibly a little horn blowing as well ..

I used to say I'd live a quiet life But baby, that's not where you are I used to say I'd never stay out late Until I hitched on to your star I wanna lay your body down Taste your little pain ..

Until I'm strangled .. by my love Yes I'm strangled .. by my love Oh I'm strangled .. by my love My love for you ..

Bethlehem PA 04:01
Here I am in Bethlehem Looking for your street In a ’60 Ford I found along the way When night hits Alabama Some woman’s gonna freak - Ford ain’t where she left it yesterday You said if I got lonely It was best to come on by After twenty years or more What’s a few more miles .. I’m driving aimlessly through Bethlehem PA Looking for an address that was postmarked ’98 I’ve got to see the girl but I can’t stay They know me well here .. Might be time to change my ride Find a small sedan I don’t recognize the street I’m on When dawn hits ol’ Savannah Somebody will come home To a ransacked house and all their money gone But, yeah - you said if I got lonely It was best to come on by I just came back to say hello Before I say good-bye I’m driving aimlessly through Bethlehem PA Looking for an address that was postmarked ’98 I’ve got to see the girl but I can’t stay They know me well here Oh they know me well Yes they know me well in Bethlehem PA They know me well Ah, they know me well here They know me well in Bethlehem PA They know me well here They really know me well here They know me well in Bethlehem PA ..

Maybe there’s not enough space Has the world lost it’s lustre Left you alone in the night Afraid of the dark .. Remember .. There will always be room in my heart When the fear of the dawn closes in And the fingers of love Did not linger long on your skin .. But left you a scar Remember .. There will always be room in my heart There will always be room in my heart (Always room for one more ..) There will always be room in my heart (Always room for one more ..) Safe from the thunder - and from the lightning And from the rains when they start You’re not quite yourself on the street Abrasions abound Like the concrete that eats at your feet Leaving it’s mark Remember .. There will always be room in my heart Ooh - yeah .. There will always be room in my heart (Always room for one more ..) There will always be room in my heart (Always room for one more ..) Safe from the thunder - and from the lightning And from the rains when they start Maybe there’s not enough space Has the world lost it’s lustre Left you alone in the night Afraid of the dark .. Remember .. There will always be room in my heart Remember .. There will always be room in my heart Room in my heart .. always be room in my heart

(scat guy) I see your road’s getting easier You can travel in luxury’s lap Well, I am repairing the holes in my road In hopes of heading you off at the pass I’ll spend my whole life fixing the road Just to be able to say .. I will .. for you - I will .. for you Whatever you need baby Fill in the blanks - I will .. for you I’ve noticed you starting to notice me more I’m happy you know I exist Maybe in time I will grow more on your mind And nothing could feel quite like this I’d spend my whole life in search of a feeling Just to be able to say .. I will .. for you - Oh, I will .. for you Whatever you need baby Fill in the blanks - and I will .. for you I’d spend my whole life My passion - my fire Just to be able to say .. I will .. for you - Oh, I will .. for you Whatever you need baby Fill in the blanks - I will .. for you - oh - I will .. for you - Whatever you need baby I can get that - I will .. for you

It's blazing hot, crazy sunny outside The boys are into the grain But I'm expecting rain - Weatherman says the lord’s on his side So he’s predicting more of the same But I’m expecting rain - Been a dog’s long life since I heard from the girl Hoping nothing has changed But my letters go unanswered I’m expecting rain - Postman bops by shaking his head Says there’s nothing today But I’m expecting rain Said she’d write a letter in Mexico City Then mail it when she got into Spain But I’m expecting rain Been a dog’s long life since I heard from the girl Hoping nothing has changed But my letters go unanswered I’m expecting rain - I’m expecting rain - Hey hey - yeah I remember that look through the steam on the glass As you took to your seat on the train I remember those words on the back of a photo As you pressed it tight to the pane Been a dog’s long life since I heard from the girl Hoping nothing has changed But my letters go unanswered I’m expecting rain - My letters go unanswered My letters go unanswered I’m expecting rain -

Indigo Heart 04:37
Indigo heart Sky is a blue .. almost black Something I lost in the light Is haunting me now in the night Indigo heart Witness the dread and despair Evil I see in myself Show it to nobody else I’ll cry at sunrise .. light coming over the hill I’ll miss your bright eyes I’ve got my whole life to kill .. Indigo heart - can’t kill your indigo heart Indigo heart Castle walls crumble and fall Give you my heart and my soul Just take them both when you go Indigo heart I know you’re trying your best Something gets left in the rain Torrent will wash it away I’ll cry at sunrise .. light coming over the hill I’ll miss your bright eyes And I’ve got my whole life to kill .. Indigo heart - can’t kill your indigo heart Indigo heart Sky is a black .. almost blue It’s just a trick of the soul Holding and not letting go Indigo heart All of the time that we have Love that I see in myself For you and for nobody else I’ll die at sunrise .. light coming over the hill Just take your sweet time I’ve got my whole life to kill It’s almost sunrise .. a ribbon of light on the hill The hangman’s waiting And I have my whole life to kill .. Indigo heart .. they can’t kill your indigo heart

This morning was rushed .. A little blessed but uninspired I drown out when it hurts too much But I finally realized - I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you Oh - and you’re out there .. Building bridges I may burn In all the years I’ve played with fire There is one thing I have learned I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you Didn’t know what time it was Didn’t know what day it was Didn’t know what year it was Or how I managed until now .. This morning was rough Another topsy turvy day - If I have to spell it out for you There is one thing I must say I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you I didn’t know a thing ’til I met you I didn’t know a thing - I didn’t know a thing - ’Til I met you .. I didn’t know a thing

Bowl Me Over 03:40
Come on out for a drink - maybe two You’ve been cooped up too long Maybe ask a girl for a dance Or the band to let you up for a song Had my back to the wall Fumbling with my chair Ten friends at a table They looked at her like the only girl there The room was loud - enjoying the crowd Vibe was getting strong No one I wanted to dance with But when the band played “Tush” I sang along Had my back to the wall Or I’d have fallen right out of my chair Ten friends at a table She looked at me like the only one there Bowl me over - make me sing Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times Bowl me over - make me sing Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times Hey! Tongue tied .. a drink - maybe two I’m in the spider’s lair In a booth .. my back to the wall Ram-a-lama girl had me pinned in there With my back to the wall Very much trapped in my chair Ten friends said adios` And ram-a-lama girl’s still sitting there .. Bowl me over - make me sing Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times Bowl me over - make me sing Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times Bowl me over - make me sing Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times Bowl me over - make me sing Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times Hey! Bowl me over - make me sing Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times Bowl me over - make me sing Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times Ram-a-lama ding dong .. three times Ram-a-lama d ..

She learned young From her momma - maybe Set the pace with those “fool you” eyes You’ll always want her .. She never will deliver She comes with standard issue lies She’s not the playground You’d like to get to know better Lots of sorry soldiers who have tried Out on the battlefield She won’t take any prisoners She comes with standard issue lies .. She comes with standard issue lies Crawl around with a wound That doesn’t want to close again - And every battle you lose Makes her harder to defend - She comes with standard issue lies .. She comes with standard issue lies She’ll learn to love .. From another - maybe Never one to savour a good-bye You’ll always need her - It won’t get any better She comes with standard issue lies .. She comes with standard issue lies Crawl around with a wound That doesn’t want to close again - And every battle you lose Makes her harder to defend - She comes with standard issue lies .. She comes with standard issue lies Crawl around with a wound That doesn’t want to close again - And every battle you lose Makes her harder to defend - She comes with standard issue lies .. She’s oh, so standard issue - Crawl around with a wound That doesn’t want to close again - And every battle you lose Makes her harder to defend - She comes with standard issue lies .. She comes with standard issue lies

Land's End 03:17
Sunrise for my ocean You're what I've been needing Barge right in and blast me .. heat and sound Beat my heart electric And you are all you seem Someone slipped your face into my dream Watch the time .. tide is rushing in Bang your drum .. let the fun begin I have tried to look away But you were always my focus Land's end - sunrise for my ocean Sunrise for my ocean I've discovered meaning Given up for lost but now I'm found Solar face - electric And baby's skin is coo-o-o-o-l Just maybe I'm the ocean for your view Watch the time .. tide is rushing in Bang your drum .. let the fun begin I have tried to stay away But you were always my focus Land's end - sunrise for my ocean Watch the time .. tide is rushing in Bang your drum .. let the fun begin I have waited long enough And you were always my potion Land's end - sunrise for my ocean Land's end - sunrise for my ocean

I kick a stone while I’m walking And wink at the moon Shiny ol’ stars are saying “How do you do” It’s nice to know that the highways and roads haven’t changed My travelling shoes are happy again Not much to carry Just the clothes on my back And a beat-up guitar that tags along in a sack A rag-tag team making our way To just there over yonder - Good-bye Caledonia moon It sure has been nice talking to you I guess I best be on my way To find the girl from yesterday A warm summer wind Is nudging me on And that beat-up guitar knows so many songs The skies and rivers are bluer than blue Just there over yonder Good-bye Caledonia moon It sure has been nice talking to you I guess I best be on my way To find the girl from yesterday The sun’s on the rise And I’m singing a song Don’t you fret, don’t you worry When you find out I’ve gone When you make your way I’ll be waiting for you Just there - over yonder Lyrics (c)2014 Robert James Music (c)1924 Thaymon Hayes/Bennie Moten Additional Music (c)2014 Robert James Traditional Arrangement by Robert James Angry Lion Publishing SOCAN/ASCAP A division of Horace Media 2020

When they hear the iron bell The workers in the field Know it's time to meet at the big stone house You can hear it peal Rings across the hills Time to find your seat at the big stone house A table made of oak Probably polished in the sunlight By hands that enjoyed a job well done Silver dishes shine Bread is freshly baked No one's turned away at the big stone house Oh the day's been very hot So they're slow comin' in Still they make their way to the big stone house They feel the cooling water Fever goes away Another perfect day at the big stone house A table made of oak Probably polished in the sunlight By hands that enjoyed a job well done Silver dishes shine Bread is freshly baked No one's turned away at the big stone house All the birds and beasts know When it's time to meet Someone rings the bell at the big stone house When you hear it chime You'll want to go and see Hear the joy and mirth at the big stone house A table made of oak Probably polished in the sunlight By hands that enjoyed a job well done Silver dishes shine Bread is freshly baked No one's turned away at the big stone house When they hear the iron bell The workers in the field Know it's time to meet at the big stone house You can hear it peal Rings across the hills Time to find your seat at the big stone house Time to find your seat at the big stone house No one's turned away at the big stone house

about

Sweet Tooth. I love it. My unfinished sweets. All in all, it's quite a varied playlist. Some of these songs will disappear from this playlist as they're completed. Cypress Moon is slated to be our next single. I'm leaps and bounds ahead of the mix presented here. I'll try to keep track of things here as well for you. I'll make sure the song notes are up to date when revisions are added. Swear. I managed to drag a few faves kicking and screaming from the vault as well. A few faves I didn't want to forget about. Maybe give them a different treatment this time around. There's also a lot of brand new material waiting in the wings. Christ, mama, I've a got a sweet tooth ... xoRJ

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. "Sweet Tooth" is currently home to at least six tracks that will appear on our upcoming seventh release entitled "Piece Of Your Ghost". I'm currently close to release of two new singles for our "Or In Cyprus" collection. Just one release to date. Lonely soul ... needs pals. xoRJ ... more
