Track Name: Talk of the Town
The townies get out for the night
The talk is around
They’ll be dancing in the moonlight
At the talk of the town

And we’re gonna be hearing about it
for a long long time

Louie plays up the street
At the talk of the town
He’ll be shaking up dancing feet
Its the talk of the town

And we’re gonna be hearing about it
for a long long time

Eh la bas, chèri!
Track Name: The Beats
Crooner on the radio/ Never sing a melody so low
Never know that Mood Indigo/ Never sing a melody so low

The beats are calling from morning til evening

Now waiting for those better days/ Gotta listen to what Momma say
She said “Never wish your life away”/ Gotta listen to what Momma say
Track Name: Jazz Queen Ladies
Jazz Queen Ladies
give us the beat, they took it away
I can’t go back, because they took it away

I spend my check on a serenade
I look up, I don’t look back

On the cover of a magazine
These days that don’t mean jack
Track Name: Ridin' High
We are alright in here
Ridin’ high

And when we get to the top
And we’re looking down
We keep holding on

And when we get to the top/ We’ll be looking down
If they’re armed to the teeth/We’ll be looking down

If they bust through the doors/ We’ll sing out loud
Cuz we’re not giving up/ We’ll sing out loud!
Track Name: The Mythic West
Lonesome is the call of the six-stringer
When long are the shadows on his desert
In the West, the mythic West

Tall grow the tales written day by day
To the lowly old tempo of a four-beat-gait
In the West, the mythic West

A timeless wail
echoes through the canyon
Of a dry river bed
and back into the ages

A rusted old sun for a tea cup moon
If he’s quick on the draw, he’ll see it again soon
In the West, the mythic West
Track Name: Fly Miriam (Table Mountain)
Someday when I awake
On top of Table Mountain

Like old pieces of eight that we found in the dirt/ Fly Miriam fly
We knew what it was, but not what it was worth/ Fly Miriam fly
And the ages around us all gave her praise/ Fly Miriam fly
For the sound of her voice, but not what she said/ Fly Miriam fly

On that disc with her name full of old 78’s/ Fly Miriam fly
I’d fallen in love on our first date/ Fly Miriam fly
Though I don’t know a lick of any Xhosa clicks/ Fly Miriam fly
The words that she spoke went straight to my soul/ Fly Miriam fly

Is that a weight of mine?
To sing against injustices
If your whole life
The whole world always let you down
Always drug you around
Always left you there to drown
Track Name: Drivin'
Drivin’
Through your mind
Feel my waves

I remember well
Sleeping in the shallows
And I’m still there
Waking up in the shallows

When I need a bit of perspective
When I need a bit of reflectivness
I go back to the shallows

We all need a bit of perspective
We all need a bit of reflectivness
Go back to the shallow

Return me to my Ocean Queen
Fill me to the top with the wine of her good fortune
Feed me from those fruiting trees
Fill me to the top with the wine of their good fortune
Track Name: Dudes Don't Even Know
Freedom Thighs
Sock it to me brother
Roads of ice
I want those
Track Name: Real Eater
I am a real eater, no heart-breaker/ warfare-er
a true connoisseur of whats left of this world
Track Name: Melody Maestro
What do they talk about Mother
When they talk about Uncle?
Do they talk about me
Like I don’t know no better?

The world knows nothing
If we don’t know of eachother
Turn up the lights tonight

Bring out the Melody Maestro
And every beat til Sunday
Put them out on the lawn
and let them catch those trade winds

For Solomon Linda/ Turn up the lights tonight
For Ibrahim Ferrer/ Turn up the lights tonight
For Ros Sothea/ Turn up the lights tonight
For Elias McDaniel/ Turn up the lights tonight
Track Name: Midnight Tonight
Taking is slow while the music is easy/ Midnight tonight
Take on the silence
Out in the dark the music is sleeping/ Midnight tonight
Taking it easy
From the tops of the trees to the bottom of this salt sea/ Midnight tonight
Take on the silence

Take on the silence
And load up the canvas
Track Name: Music Like Thunder
The whole world is news to me/ Music like thunder
Another coast across this sea (has got)/ Music like thunder
When someone starts playing that/ Music like thunder
The whole world is singing about/ Music like thunder

There’s a million people/voices in here
Flying over the biggest ocean
Beating out that rolling thunder
Flying over the biggest ocean

The patrons of life today love/ Music like thunder
They’re putting out their worldly pain with/ Music like thunder
With heels on the ceiling we’ve got/ Music like thunder
There will be no grieving with/ Music like thunder

Music in the sky!
