Yogi 03:38
It’s fifty percent mental, ninety percent fate It ain't over till it’s over, and I say it ain’t! I'm a little bit brash and known to be late The hell with your lies, I’m a sinner of my day… Oh Yogi, I wanna be king I wanna feel like a god, and praised like a saint The prince of a town will never get far When he rests on his laurels, never gains a scar He'll jump from the bridge, feet never hit the floor Wonders why his nickel ain't worth a dime anymore If he don’t make it, you know he’ll be fine He'll take his toys and move on down the line Now I'm a man who'll take what I get It’s like déjà vu, all over again… Oh Yogi, I wanna be king I wanna feel like a god, and praised like a saint I wanna look down from the mountains of the empire state I wanna wave to the crowds through my ticker tape She told her mama one day she'd be proud Her name in lights, on stage for the crowd She dances like an angel, queen of Swan Lake Nimble as a thimble, from any small state Now that she’s made it you know she'll be fine She said “I gave it my all, put it all on the line.” Now night after night she dances for them It’s like déjà vu all over again… Oh Yogi, I wanna be king I wanna feel like a god, praised like a saint I wanna look down from the mountains of the Empire State I wanna wave to the crowds through my ticker tape. Oh Yogi, I wanna be king Maybe I'll marry that Marylyn, like Joey D. I wanna wake up in that city that doesn't sleep Oh, Yogi, I wanna be king.

Mango Tree 03:18
It was summer love, you were my first kiss Even though I'd never admit You were so damn cool, sitting by the pool Reading magazines with the girls from school Nothing to lose I took a chance, Stared at my shoes and asked you your plans I took you to Ben Folds, you taught me to dance We played the game of who could care less Won’t you sit with me underneath the mango tree Where the words were hushed like we wanted them to be We talked all night as we tried to make it right The world seemed bright underneath the blue skies It was summer love, and its still might be Cuz time ain’t never meant much to me You were so damn fine, I was so damn green You were the cutest girl I’d ever seen With your ocean hair breezin’ down the beach Showing you off in that southern heat. The fireworks above, were in your eyes As you whispered these words and said goodbye. Won't you sit with me underneath the mango tree Where the words were hushed like we wanted them to be We talked all night as we tried to make it right The world seemed bright underneath the blue skies Won’t you think of me underneath the mango tree Where the words were hushed like we wanted them to be We talked all night as we tried to make it right The world seemed bright underneath the blue skies Now you've got me thinking those things That I always wanted to say All those words and harmonies That make the birds and trees swing Now you got me humming along Now you've got me singing this song

Bonaire 04:32
Wake up in the morning, I can see the distance What a beautiful life, beautiful place to begin She rolls over says “whatcha thinking? How many days you gonna wait to live?” Today is all about what you make it No lies, no fate, sins to forget So grab at your dreams and chase them No time to waste living with those regrets When I close my eyes all I see’s an old man staring back at me Dreaming all the dreams he missed “If you won’t stop dreamin’ ‘bout tomorrow, How am I supposed to go and live the day?” Call on my brothers, call on my dear friends We can love one another, that’s what we’ll be in the end Maddy’s dancing up and on the lawn Doing cartwheels, signing all her little songs Oh no, if you didn’t know her, you’d say she’s wasting till its gone She is not dreaming about tomorrow, Breathing each and every little breath. Cuz she believes in this moment Thankful for every chance that she gets. “The sun will rise and I’ll keep winning Doing the things I always did, live my life with no regrets. If you won’t stop dreaming about tomorrow, how am I supposed to live the day!” Call on my brothers, call on my dear friends We can love one another, that’s what we’ll be in the end We can turn it all off, and step out to where we begin We've got one shot, its enough, to make it all count where we stand. Now I can’t see what you believe Taking all your time from me Taking all the things you stole Miss my life from before Now I will be here in the end Standing side-by-side with my friends I will stand for what I believe Taking back all you see Won’t waste my time “living in sin” Be thankful for all my kin Treasure all the words you speak All the things that make me me Like going on down the record store, Visit my friend Rivers Cuomo Singing “What’s a matter, what’s a matter, what’s a matter with you What’s a matter babe, are ya feelin’ blue.” Call on my brothers, call on my dear friends We can love one another, that’s what we’ll be in the end We can turn it all off, and step out to where we begin We've got one shot, its enough, to make it all count where we stand.

When the moon is high and the sky is bright we'll take the streets tonight We’ll walk on to the other side where I know I’ll be alright We take our time, to make these rhymes and throw away our fears Cuz we're drinkin’ in those ports where there’s only been good years Where we’ve sang: Hey Oh, Hey Oh, Singin’ Oh A Oh, A Oh She winks at me from across the bar, and I know that she’ll be mine But tonight I’m drinkin’ with my friends so she'll have to bide her time We’ll fill our cups, blow some guff, and curse away despair We’ll raise our glass to maidens and lasses, and those no longer here As we sing… Hey Oh, Hey Oh, Singing Oh A Oh, A Oh Now I don't care that you're telling me those lies Cuz I’ll be drunk here, waiting by my lonesome side I don’t care who you are takin’ home tonight As long as for you go, you'll dance and sing with me tonight! Sing: Hey Oh, Hey Oh, Singing Oh Ah Oh, Ah Oh
