    Tequila

    Why don't you pour a shot of tequila...

    2, 3, or 4 cause you know that I need to...

    Shake off the worries of yesterday

    It's good for your heart, that's what they say...

    Arriba abajo acentro adentro

    Nastrovia salud or whatever you're into

    We'll get some courage we've never had

    Might make us sick...it might just make us laugh

    Que pasa senorita...tu quieres bailar?

    Jump up now cause it is your chance to move and groove and make up some romance

    Tequila dance, tequila songs...Patron or Cuervo could never be wrong

    Look over there it is your chica...spin her around and tell her that you need her

    One foot in and one foot out now...turn turn around but try not to fall down

    Que pasa senorita...tu quieres bailar?

    Won't you come with me...we can leave tonight...we'll drink tequila...until we feel...until we feel alright

    Sunday Sun

    Oh, sing me children...all your troubles gonna float away...

    Yes I know, that the river is wide...but if love is on your side

    It's a Sunday son, the sun be a shining...ain't no need to be in a crying'...

    Keep a moving always a grovin'...dance to this music all night long

    And this can't be wrong...no, no, no, no...

    If the rain falls, and the thunder roars...and the lightning strikes me down...

    Won't you know...that my love will never leave...cause my love is all around

    Spread Your Love

    Every day you have a new chance to spread your love out in this world

    In Hawaiian-Reggae, Folk or bluegrass, I’ll sing we need more love in this world

    Yes you must love another as you would love yourself...

    My sister, my brother your love is worth much more than wealth...

    Spread your love...spread your lovin’ out...spread your lovin’ all around...

    And here we go, oh and oh, I’ll never let it touch the ground

    I want to tell you that I love you...so much more with each new day

    And what a wonderful world it would be if everyone would go and love someone today

    Yes you must love another as you would love yourself

    My sister, my brother, your love is worth much more than wealth...

    Spread your love...spread your lovin’ out...spread your lovin’ all around...

    And here we go, oh and oh, I’ll never let it touch the ground...

    Oh let the sun a ‘shine...shinin’ from the big blue sky

    I and I, there's no need to cry, I'll meet you in the sweet by and by

    Colorblinded

    With each new day you come alive...do you really wake inside...

    You can think on good or bad...you can be happy or be sad...but please don't be 'cause

    I'd do anything for you...swim the deepest ocean

    On a highest mountain side...let's go on a magic carpet ride

    Until nothing in your life seems real...and don't you know I send my love your way

    All my cards on the table, without your love I am colorblinded...

    I'd walk a million miles...I'd walk a million miles

    And all I see is black and white...as I lie awake tonight...

    But I see yellow, green and blue...all the time when I'm with you...

    But I...I don't see any colors when you're not around

    And nothing in my life seems real...and don't you know I send my love your way

    All my cards on the table...without your love I am colorblinded...

    I'd walk a million miles...I'd walk a million miles...

    Just to be there by your side...

    Just to be there by your side...

    Neon Signs

    Drivin' backwards...doin' some thinking

    Life can pass on when your barely blinkin'...

    There are times I've been so down

    But all the answers were waiting to be found

    There's a truth confined in the neon signs...

    In the darkest place there shines a light

    Peace is what your heart can find in the neon lights

    With education and liberation

    Did you question your authority

    You can lie to me some more my friend...lie to me some more

    But why are you hatin'...and why are you fightin...and why must there be war

    There's a truth confined in the neon signs...

    In the darkest place there shines a light

    And if I could tell you that I’d really really like to love you

    Peace is what your heart can find in the neon lights

    But there’s this devil and there’s the lord and there are people who’ll try to judge you and tell you right or wrong...

    Of all the medicine they make you take what makes you better is love

    There's a truth confined in the neon signs...

    In the darkest place there shines a light

    For a million miles and echoing I hear your soul’s reply...

    Peace is what your heart can find in the neon

    Peace is what your heart can find in the neon lights

    Baby Bee

    Said I don't know where...I don't know where my baby bee

    She gone, she gone...gone away from me

    And these blues...lord they haunt me in my dreams

    Love is so hard to see sometimes when the world is so mean

    And I wait from a window to see what I will see

    And I know there, in the sunlight...that love is here with me

    My baby bee

    Her love is here with me

    My baby bee

    Her love is here with me

    Baby bee

    I remember when...in this life I was a child

    I would send you smiles...running free and running wild

    Well the ones you love...said it's all you ever have

    I remember when you would hold me in the night and then I don't feel so bad

    And I wake in the morning...to take the river road to the sea

    And  know there in the sunlight...that love is here with me

    Tambourine (Ode To Freedom)

    I look above in awe at the sky...

    Then I look around and start to wonder why...

    Why must a hungry man have no food at all...

    Why must an evil man not fall...

    For all the many things that are not right or ok...

    An ode to freedom my tambourine will play

    Oh I say, oh I say I...that I know I'll fly away

    Then an ode to freedom my tambourine will play

    Why do so many still go on to die in vain...

    Hurting and killing are not part of this game

    Why are the views instilled on some at such young age...

    A part of philosophy is a mind trapped in a cage

    Telephone

    All the people everywhere...and they're saying they just don’t care...hey won’t we...try to see things differently...even if we don’t agree...

    I think about it everyday...there’s got to be another way 'cause...some things aren’t what they seem...just look at all the magazines but...

    You are not so alone...you don’t always need no telephone

    Don’t need to hear no hear no same old song...so I don’t always turn the radio on and...

    You are not so alone...

    I’m only passing by...till I fly back to the sky but why...oh why...

    Are we being so unkind...are we losing all our minds...spread all of your love...a light will shine down from above...and...

    You are not so alone...you don’t always need no telephone...

    Don’t need to hear no hear no same old song...so I don’t always turn the radio on and...

    You are not so alone...you don’t always need no telephone...

    Nowadays everything is either right or wrong...it's another version of the same old song...

    And you are not so alone...and you are not so alone

    Hula Girl

    Beyond the reef there's a land far away...away from the trouble the sorrow and pain

    I hope our love will never ever change...don't you know your own name

    Oh little girl won't you step right here...'cause I'm a thinkin' about it we could just disappear from here...

    I wish I never had to leave my home...but your never alone

    Won't you be my swinging' hula girl...

    Won't you be...won't you be...won't you be my hula girl

    Hey baby please say a prayer for me...you know that love is true...won't you...

    Say a prayer for me...you know I say a prayer for you to be free...

    And the wind blows...you're swaying like the palm tree...

    And though they’re saying that everything is wrong...you got to hold on...don't sing the same old song

    Won't you be my swinging' hula girl...

    Won't you be...won't you be...won't you be my hula girl

    Won't you be...won't you be...with your beautiful lullabies...

    Wont' you be my swinging' hula girl...

    Just one more time around...

    Just one more time around...

    Runaway Mahalo

    Ever lovely in your eyes...lovelier than bright blue skies

    Though there's much cruelty in this world...there in aloha is so much love

    You know I want to want you I say that I run away run away...

    To where she sings mahalo...

    You know I want to want you I say I say that it's all ok all ok...

    When she sings mahalo...

    And hey hey hey don't you know oh...

    Runaway mahalo

    Ever lovely as you are...lovelier than bright blue stars...

    So listen closely now hear the words...and with a touch you know you shall be heard

    Better With You

    I was running into the sunlight...flying, fly away...into the rainbow

    At a place lonely a long time ago...somewhere by the ocean that's where I saw you

    And of the things I know for sure...every thing's better when I'm with you

    Hey now I feel so blue, but all I got to do is look at you

    I think that you're so cool and groovy...lets go dance cause darlin' you move me

    Dance to this music...which way you go...we can dance fast, but sometime we got to dance slow

    And of the things I know for sure...everything's better when I'm with you

    Hey now I feel so blue, but all I got to do is look at you

    Wherever you may be you got to be free...so come along with me...I'll be under the banyan tree

    The blue waves fading far far away...I wish that you would stay...hey you ain't got to run away

    And of the things I know for sure...every thing's better when I'm with you

    Hey now I feel so blue, but all I got to do is look at you

    And I was running into the sunlight...flying, fly away...into the rainbow

  • 04:31 Lyrics
    Words Alone

    Tonight I see the starlight...I think of how the sun shines bright

    And when I think of you...this heart shines too

    If I could never be blue...from all of the things life will put you through

    And many things I just don't need to tell...but I know I wish you well

    And maybe there's a black-winged bird that flies away...

    Maybe you're the breaking wave that will become my wings...

    And babe, pretty babe, I sing I love you won't you stay...

    You know sometimes that words alone can't say what you've got to say

    Never love or live in fear...you can't just sit and pass the years

    There's a road that you'll choose...and sometimes you win in the times that you lose

    If what you light is this fuse...then you can conclude that I want to soothe

    No one tell me that is wrong...with you I know I always will belong
