Track Name: Red Hen
Red Hen

You talk about that rooster
you talk about that man
you talk ‘bout some looser
tryin’ to get ‘n my game
I better tell you my name
I’m the Red Hen

I get up every mornin’
from this bed I made
I do my boogie-woogie
an’ I don’t feel no shame
I make my own way
My mama raised
a Red Hen
Red Hen

The only reason
THAT the Rooster
crows in the morning
is ‘cos I kicked him out OF
this bed I made
He ain’t my rooster - he can’t stay - I tell him
never did he help me
make this bed of mine

I asked you once - I asked you twice
just about five times - to help me build
this bed I got right here
you couldn’t pick it, couldn’t lay it
down, up or sideways
‘cos all you had was cluckin’ on your mind
and you left it here
you left it for the Red Hen

Track Name: Let's Be Friends
Let's Be Friends

Need no charm - need no luck
to be my friend - you really don’t need much
all I ask is keep the good side up

Watch your game - keep that trouble down
you be yourself - all the time
always do keep peace in mind

woo-woo-woo-woo -lets be friends
we could shine together -for goodness sake
make this world a brighter place..
we could make this world a brighter place
we could make this world a brighter place

woo-woo-woo-woo -lets be friends
we could shine together -for goodness sake
make this world a brighter place
we could make this world a brighter place
Track Name: How You Flow
You wanna know
where all the magic’s gone
you’ve looked in here
you’ve looked in there
can’t find no more

Where oh - where could it be
you’re feeling so down
I tell you what - I tell you where
it’s all right here

chorus:
How You Flow

Wink back to the sky
flowing in the stream
smooth the edge now - go with your dream
give - take - let go
it’s all in how you flow

Some say it’s underneath your hat
but where you think ain’t where it’s at - no, no...
it’s that dot on your nose
that little crack beneath your soles
yes, that’s right

Dance with every moment
and magic will dance with you
when it moves - just make sure you do too

Chorus

Track Name: One Day
One Day we’ll see
all that fell forgotten - hmm
One Day we’ll dance
with all the beats we’re missing - hmm
One Day, One Day

One Day we’ll return
all the calls we’ve gotten - hmm
from Earth and Sky
and the Children - hmm
One Day, One Day

That One Day could be Monday
Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday - hmm
That One Day could be Friday
Saturday, maybe even Sunday - hmm
One Day, that One Day could be any day

Track Name: Real Time
Real Time

There’s a devil - if you say
there’s hate - if you do
Pain’s housed - in the mind
now it’s all up to you


You got circles - you got squares
you got will - you got fears
one Is real - one is not
tell me now what have you got?

Hey now best - check your clock
is she on? is she off?
Wind her up? slow it down?
is it all coming around?

Where you’ve sunk - there you be
your low ain’t got no swing
Are we becoming? Are we behind?
anybody got real time?

Track Name: Vem Kan Segla Förutan Vind
Who can sail without the wind
Who can row without oars
Who can part from a friend
without shedding tears...

I can sail without the wind
I can row without oars
But not part from a friend
without shedding tears...

Vem kan segla förutan vind
Vem kan ro utan åror
Vem kan skiljas från vännen sin
utan att fälla tårar...

Jag kan segla förutan vind
Jag kan ro utan åror
Men ej skiljas från vännen min
utan att fälla tårar...
Track Name: These Blues
These Blues

These blues in my shoes
worn and broken
untied and loose
keeps me trippin’
robbin’ my muse - all day long

This steep old road
ain’t nobodies friend
neither is your cold, cold wind
my light of strong has
almost burned down
oh, I’ve had these blues for too long

I found no love
and love didn’t find me
I said I found no love
and love didn’t find me
trouble’s my lover
never lets me be
yeah, trouble’s my lover
trouble got me

I didn’t find these blues
these blues found me
I said I didn’t find these blues
these blues found me
But had these blues not found me
I wouldn’t know my Soul is free
had these blues not found me
I wouldn’t know my Soul is free

Track Name: Dragonfly Goodbye
Dragonfly Goodbye

The Dragonfly in the autumn wind
lands on your windowpane
the days are getting darker now
time to say goodbye to the dragonfly

Lullaby into the starlit night
dream of tomorrow
dragonfly oh, dragonfly - goodbye

The dragonfly left with the setting sun
the wind was calm
Yellow leaves hugged the cooling ground
life resting safe and sound

Lullaby into the starlit night
dream of tomorrow
dragonfly oh, dragonfly - goodbye

yes, dream of tomorrow
with your iridescent soul
dragonfly, see you in a while
as you return to here and now

Lullaby into the starlit night
dream of tomorrow
dragonfly oh, dragonfly - goodbye
Dragonfly, Goodbye
