about

I love playing this one ... everything flows nicely ... I have fun in the park with this one, get this favorite bench on a hill overlooking a baseball diamond, it's dusk, night's comin' - there's that slight dampness on the guitar strings and then you strum the Em. Funny thing, I'm usually alone when I start this song - but end up with a large crowd when I finish it ...

lyrics

Da, da da da da
Everything under the stars are all right
Da, da da da da
Shines with its own little light in the night
Da, da da da da
Everything under the stars are all right
Da, da da da da
Shines with its own little light in the night

Ah oom - Ah oom

I didn’t mean to disappoint you
Had to cancel I was ill
And the doctor wasn’t coming
When I swallowed all these pills

I took one to make me happy
Two to keep things straight
Three to make my night complete
Now there’s four left on my plate

And if that’s what it takes I’ll get through it
Every dog has his day…
Can I stand up straight and prove it to you

Da, da da da da
Everything under the stars are all right
Da, da da da da
Shines with its own little light in the night
Da, da da da da
Everything under the stars are all right
Da, da da da da
Shines with its own little light in the night

Ah oom - Ah oom

I didn’t mean to call the Coast Guard
In this weather I got lost
I can’t navigate these channels
And my gin is almost gone

I took a drink to make me sorry
Two to make me blind
Three to make me stumble
Now there’s four that I can’t find

And if that’s what it takes I’ll get through it
Every dog has his day…
Can I stand up straight and prove it to you

Da, da da da da
Everything under the stars are all right
Da, da da da da
Shines with its own little light in the night
Da, da da da da
Everything under the stars are all right
Da, da da da da
Shines with its own little light in the night

Ah oom - Ah oom

Spoken: (Kevan Van Keith)

“I didn’t want to have to tell you, but somebody has to do it
Everything falls apart for a reason you should know that
But tonight it doesn’t matter ‘cause everything’s a little starry out there
Reminds you of a song you’ve heard before but can’t remember where
You want to know the secrets of things you can’t control
The answer’s in yourself, so grab on or just let go

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
