Be Your Own Best Friend
Why do you put yourself down
run your heart to the ground
why do you beat yourself up
with those boxing gloves

Look in the mirror
what do you see
a winner or a loser
you're what you chose to be

Don't sweat it, forget it, let it go
blow it off into the wind
have amnesia now and then
be your own best friend

Why do you kick yourself around
like a dog on the ground
why do you pick yourself apart
tear and shred up that heart

Look in the mirror
what do you see
a winner or a loser
you're what you chose to be

Don't sweat it, forget it, let it go
blow it off into the wind
have amnesia now and then
be your own best friend

No one is perfect
you're just like anyone
if you've fallen don't fail
by giving up, yea, yea

Don't sweat it, forget it, let it go
blow it off into the wind
have amnesia now and then
be your own best friend, yea
be your own best friend



Talking on the Telephone
It's her mother in the morning right around ten
at eleven it's Elaine, one of her friends
How's the cookin', how's the cleaning
are the kids all doin' fine
When Tina gets to talkin' there's no gettin' on the line

Then there's Carl in his car with remote in right hand
talkin' to the boss 'bout an account he's got to land
It's big deals, little thrills, to beg, groan or moan
what on earth would the world be without the telephone

Talkin' on the Telephone
Yakkity Yak Yak
Why the whole world is wired for the sake of talkin' back
Talkin' on the Telephone
Ring a ding ding
Why the whole world's connected to this little telething

Bobby Jo and her boyfriend are settin' up a date
her sister calls at 6 to make sure she won't be late
without the telephone there'd be no way to know
what on earth was goin' on and where on eart would we go

Talkin' on the Telephone
Yakkity Yak Yak
Why the whole world is wired for the sake of talkin' back
Talkin' on the Telephone
Ring a ding ding
Why the whole world's connected to this little telething

The Earth stopped spinnin' around the sun years ago
Ever since we startin' talkin' on this tiny telephone

Talkin' on the Telephone
Yakkity Yak Yak
Why the whole world is wired for the sake of talkin' back
Talkin' on the Telephone
Ring a ding ding
Why the whole world's connected to this little telething



That's My Man
That's my man release your hands
you best be movin' it along
Don't wanna see me get real mean
That's my man leave him alone

You been comin' too close for comfort
You been hangin' around here too long
You been sayin' too many sweet words
Listen honey you got it all wrong

That's my man release your hands
you best be movin' it along
Don't wanna see me get real mean
That's my man leave him alone

You been wearin' them jeans way to tight
You been smilin' with way too sexy eyes
You been sharin' way too many secrets
Listen honey it's time you realized

That I'd advise you to take some good advice
walk out that door and don't think twice

That's my man release your hands
you best be movin' it along
Don't wanna see me get real mean
That's my man leave him alone



Old Fashioned Love
If I told you that I loved you
would you stay for more than just one day
If you told me that you loved me
would it be enough to make you wanna stay

I need an old fashioned love
with old fashioned vows
for an old fashioned girl like me
I need an old fashioned kiss
to linger on my lips
an old fashioned love that's for keeps

If I told you that I needed you
would you cherish the words that I say
If you told me that you needed me
would it be enough to make you wanna stay

I need an old fashioned love
with old fashioned vows
for an old fashioned girl like me
I need an old fashioned kiss
to linger on my lips
an old fashioned love that's for keeps

It seems these days that love don't last long enough
one falls away and the other falls out of love

I need an old fashioned love
with old fashioned vows
for an old fashioned girl like me
I need an old fashioned kiss
to linger on my lips
an old fashioned love that's for keeps



Broken Wing
She once lived in a high and lofty place
where the light from the son shone from her face
a refuge to the lost, souls caught in pain
she'd wrap her wings around them
to shelter from the rain

But as fate would have the story go
one day a fierce and mighty wind blowed
and with a saddening sound
Angel was knocked to the ground

God's got an Angel with a broken wing
to fly once more on high she'd give anything
though she tries with all her might
she can't raise herself to flight
be patient and understanding
to God's Angel with a broken wing

Maybe you've seen her, passed by her on the street
maybe she's the one that no one wants to meet
bundled in a ball on a cold winter's day
she's lying alone and you turn the other way

Not knowing that deep down inside
underneath all the pain she hides
is a heart that longs to heal
but can't find the will or strength

God's got an Angel with a broken wing
to fly once more on high she'd give anything
though she tries with all her might
she can't raise herself to flight
be patient and understanding
to God's Angel with a broken wing



Two Hearts
There is something in the air, our love is alive
in this world we call our own, just two hearts abide
You have met a special side of me
no one else has ever known before
your touch has sparked a flame in me
I am yours forevermore

We are two hearts becoming one
and these two hearts will always beat as one

I will love you all my life, you are a part of me
what has happened deep inside, only I can see
Your embrace has a mystery, only you can set me free
your touch has sparked a flame in me
I am yours eternally

We are two hearts becoming one
and these two hearts will always beat as one
We are two hearts becoming one
and now through us a miracle is done



He Don't Do Me No Wrong
He don't do the dishes, he don't sweep the floor
He don't do the laundry, he don't see what I'm fightin' for
Sometimes I wonder, if this is where I belong
but my baby he don't do me no wrong

He don't send me flowers, he don't write me poems
he don't cook me dinner and he don't sing me no love songs
Sometimes I wonder, if this is where I belong
but my baby he don't do me no wrong

He don't run with the boys after work at night
and he don't use his truck to pick up every woman in sight
He don't drink no whiskey all week long
no my baby he don't do me no wrong

Ah, sometimes I'm tempted to trade him away
but he's that one-in-a-million needle
I found in the stack of hay...yay

He don't run with the boys after work at night
and he don't use his truck to pick up every woman in sight
He don't drink no whiskey all week long
no my baby he don't do me no wrong

My Old Man
My old man has hands that are lined and leathered
my old man has a face that is worn and weathered
and through the years he has never let me in
but he's a good one, my old man

My old man has eyes that have watched me change
from innocence into someone who's made mistakes
and through the years he has never let me go
yea, he's a good one, my old man

And my old man has a heavy heart
that he carries in a cast iron shell
with ease he can't express all the tenderness
that he has but hides so well...but....

My old man has a back that's been broken for me
and two strong arms that have held me up for the world to see
and through the years I have never let him know
that he's a good one, my old man
yea you're a good one, my old man



So Many Things
He was gonna buy her that diamond
the one she noticed at the jewelry store
He'd find a way to afford it some day
but other things always came before

He was gonna take her to the mountains
some place where they could laugh and play
but then there was work and that always came first
and he never got to take her away

He was gonna be the man she needed
He was gonna treat her like a queen
But time slipped away and now it's too late
He was gonna do so many things
So many things

He was gonna buy her some flowers
week after week it crossed his mind
But he felt too rushed to slow down enough
not once did he stop to take the time

Three days ago she passed away
He stood silently at her grave

He was gonna be the man she needed
He was gonna treat her like a queen
But time slipped away and now it's too late
He was gonna do so many things
So many things



Whatchamacallit
My grandma and grandpa had it many years ago
they found it one winter's night
while tumblin' in the snow
whatever it was it worked because
their love stayed fresh and new
through fifty years of joy and tears
their hearts were always true

It's that whatchamacallit, that doo-hickey
That thing-a-majig
that magical thing that makes love big
It's that whatchamacallit, that doo-hickey
That thing-a-majig
that magical thing that makes love big

Mom and dad had it too us kids could always see
through good and bad whatever they had
kept our family
Mom would say, "You have this thing hidden down in you"
and if you dig deep it will keep love from leavin' you

It's that whatchamacallit, that doo-hickey
That thing-a-majig
that magical thing that makes love big
It's that whatchamacallit, that doo-hickey
That thing-a-majig
that magical thing that makes love big

It's that magical, mystical, wonderful, whimsical
beautiful thing that makes love big.
