When I'm feeling kinda blue And I don't know what to do When my day is goin' bad cuz it feel like I've been had When I'm feeling all alone cuz no one's callin' on the phone And if feels like I'm 'bout to fall Cuz it seems I've lost it all I REMEMBER Love is the answer to almost every question I REMEMBER Love is the answer to almost every question When you're feeling kinda blue And you don't know what to do When your day is going bad cuz it feels like you've been had When the news has got you down with war and violence all around when they're trying to sell you fear be the headlight not the deer Love is the answer to almost every question REMEMBER Love is the answer to almost every question Love is the answer to almost every question REMEMBER Love is the answer to almost every question

You know he’s got a big… Truck but his heart’s even bigger. And when he’s rollin’ on by he makes my whole body shiver so I bought a new skirt to go with my new sweater if he’s got a girlfriend I’m gonna make him forget her TIMBER – I’m fallin’ hard over him I hear he’s got a big... boat but that his heart’s even bigger so if he calls in for bait I’m gonna have to deliver and I’d float anywhere with this guy down a river you know I ain’t loose but for him I think I’d have to consider TIMBER – I’m fallin’ hard over him (x 4) Don’t bring down all the beautiful trees in the forest Don’t make me fall, live you’ve done with all the rest I want to grow, strong and tall – toward the sun and the moon and the stars Don’t make me fall I hear he’s got a big... brain – but that his heart’s even bigger If his love was a gone I think I’d like to put my hand on his trigger And I’ve got a good friend. You know she’s more like a sister She wants to tell him that I like him if she does you know I’ll never forgive her TIMBER, I'm fallin' hard over him

I tend to want what I can’t have Or else I don’t know what I want I wish that I could just make up my mind When I order in a restaurant I tend to get myself in strange situations and then I do things that I later regret I wonder sometimes if I’ll ever succeed here to get out of emotional debt. But I’m fighting the dood fight Yeah I'm fightin' the good fight in my head I'm fighting the good fight Gonna keep on fighting the good fight till the end I tend to worry about where I’m heading Or else I ponder upon where I’ve been I wonder sometimes what I’d do different here If I were a congress woman I tend to worry about our planet You know I think of her as my old friend I wish that we could all just get it together here but I know everything good thing must end. But I’m fighting the Good fight… This voice inside my head – it tells me I’m no good It tells me to give up. You know I’d give up if I could This voice inside my head it says I’ve already lost the race It tells me I’m too old to keep up a steady pace But I won’t give up the race – no I won’t give up the race… Cuz I'm fighting the good fight... Now, I don’t believe in the devil - but I do believe that evil exists And I’d rather walk in the light of day than in the darkness shaking my first. And I have a code that I live by. It says what goes around comes back around. Treat others how you’d like to be treated. And what was lost once will be found. And keep fightin’ the good fight…

You’ve got my full attention But now I’m headin’ in the wrong direction You’ve got me walking into walls – don’t think I have to tell you why You get my sense of humor You’re another psychedelic boomer You’ve got me talking to myself Don’t think I have to tell you what I’m thinkin’ - and why I’m drinking and why I’m sinking down – down – down - to the devil’s playground You’ve got a way of moving – it’s a funky sort of way of grooving I’m trying not to think about you. It’s not an easy thing to do Cuz You understand my passions – that I’m not into the latest fashions. You’ve got my tossin’ in my bed – won’t you get out of my head Stop runnin’ round in my head. I’ll meet you on the devil’s playground LA DA LA DA DA Oh yeah Don’t think I have to tell you what I’m thinkin’ - and why I’m drinking and why I’m sinking down – down – down - to the devil’s playground You get my sense of humor You’re another psilocybin boomer You’ve got me talking in my sleep Don’t think I have to tell you what I’m thinkin’ - and why I’m drinking and why I’m sinking down – down – down - to the devil’s playground

Life is precious – our world’s amazing So, don’t waste it – don't be lazy Don’t be timid - Don’t be scared You can do it - Lose your fear Maybe there’s a monster in your closet Maybe it’s right under your bed Maybe someone’s following you So, turn it around – turn it around – turn it around And face it. Just face it. Fear’s what you make it You are beautiful - and unique But it’s critical – that you see it. Don’t let anyone push you around Put your roots down – down in the ground CHORUS I know a girl – who sits at home alone most every night And I know a man who drinks to the bottom of a bottle cuz he’s afraid of his light. Don’t be afraid of your light. Just face it! Fear’s what you make it I’ll even stand naked Gonna face it - cuz fear's what you make it

Now I hear you bought a gun And you’re takin’ it to the street cuz he hurt your silly pride when he knocked you off your feet You coulda let it slide on by But you couldn’t let him see you cry So you’re takin’ to the street and into your own hands I hear you lost a shady bet and now you’re swimmin’ in the mud You’re buried ten feet deep in debt you know it might as well be blood You coulda let it float on by now you’re gonna have to run and hide because you’ve taken it to the street and into your own hands – Mr. Vigilante Man Oh, where are you gonna run? And where are you gonna hide? You think you’re so tough with that gun When are you gonna learn – a real man doesn’t need one He doesn’t need one You coulda let it slide on by Now you’re gonna have to run and hide cuz you’ve taken it to the street and into your own hands. Guess you’re a Vigilante man
