Track Name: Holy Water
HOLY WATER © 2012 Joe Jaunty (inspirational lyrics by Philip Rudell, Fergus Falls, Minnesota, USAl)

-----------------
I once had a neighbour - we can call him "Bob"
He always drove me crazy - he was such a fuckin´knob!
His hobby was to put flyer´s up - tellin´folks; "he´s got me beat!"
that he mowed his lawn much quicker than me -
(Yeah)- it was always green..

CHORUS:
"I´m covered with Holy Water
(I´m) carrying Holy Water
(I) shower in Holy Water
My water is wetter than yours..." (rep)

I once had a neighbour - we can call him "Spence"
He was always measuring things - in particular my fence!
On my way to Town sometimes - on my VW Trike
He tried so hard that he almost died
overtake me on his bike...

CHORUS:
(He was) covered with Holy Water
Carrying Holy Water
He showered in Holy Water
"My water is wetter than yours..."(rep)

I once had a neighbour - we can call him "Luke"
He swore his dog was better than mine
(That guy made me puke!)
"My mutt can bark much louder than yours - look at him fetch that stick!"
Well, I dropped him like a sack of spuds - with a well placed Karate-kick!

CHORUS:
He was covered with Holy Water
Carrying Holy Water
Showered in Holy Water
"My water is wetter than Yours!" (rep)

I once had a neighbour - we can call him "Kurt"
he was always playing with his hose - like God´s almighty-squirt!
He claimed that he had better land
(and) that his veggies grew mighty tall!
Spraying down his words and prayed -
like I could care at all...

CHORUS:
Covered with Holy Water
Carrying Holy Water
Showered in Holy Water
"My water is wetter than Yours!" (rep)

I once had a neighbour - we can call him whatever U want...
always trying to do better than me - what´s the matter with some guys...?

CHORUS:
Are they covered with Holy Water?
Carrying Holy Water?
Do they shower in Holy Water?
"My water is wetter than Yours!" (rep)

Track Name: All Over Again
© ALL OVER AGAIN (by Joe Jaunty)
/from a real life story by Cathie Fredrickson/
----------------------------------------
Same thing - same thing - same all over again...

It was the middle of the night, I got a call from an Indian girl...
drunk at the Native Casino - all alone in the world!
/Same all over again/
The wind was pickin´up real fast - rooftops were comin´apart...
floodin´Red River - hittin´Fargo hard!

And I thought to myself; Oh, no - not this shit again...

That telephone call, turned me right awake!
But the sheets were begging me to; "Stay! Stay! Stay!"
I could tell by the tone of her voice, that she was over The Edge...
But I decided to lay down on my bed...
I went right back to sleep - instead

Same thing - same old thing - same all over again...

It would have been a good three-hour drive - in the pouring rain...
cross the state to the next one, to the Red Lake...(Minnesota Red Lake)
But I made other plans - didn´t show up by the Seven Clans
a decision I regret to this day...

The Highway Patrolman found her by the Farm station road
"She had put up a fight", he said - and that was all she wrote...
Tried to get a ride with some guys from Bagley, nearby...
"It took her awhile", he said - " to die..."

I dream about that Indian Girl (every night)
- All Over Again...
Track Name: Blood Red
BLOOD RED © (by Joe Jaunty) 2012

Kiss the floor goodnight - kiss it one more time
Don´t make a move or U need a kiss-of-life...
U thought that I would cry - U counted on a lie
But count on This - tonight you´ll Die!

/BLOOD RED - BLOOD RED/

Weak brain - narrow mind - call it "to align"
call it what U will - that´s fine...
Lay down on the floor - I will hurt you some more!
I´ve got a stick full-of-fun - SCORE!

Sticks and stones may break my bones - but words will never hurt me...
See a pin - pick it up - see a bone - let it lie
I´ve got a bone to pick tonight...

/BLOOD RED/

Toss the dime - decide - twirl it in the sky...
put your trust in Lady Luck (she´s allright)
U got a 50/50 chance - let´s see if U can dance...
I dare U to try - the odds are high!

/BLOOD RED/

Sticks and stones may break my bones - but words will never hurt me...
See a pin - pick it up - see a bone - let it lie
I´ve got a bone to pick tonight...

/BLOOD RED/
Track Name: Mary
MARY (by Joe Jaunty)

/original song written in 1988/

There was a little girl - playin´on a field
(wind blowin´through her hair)
I was hiding behind a willow-tree
(she didn´t feel the stranger being near)

Saw her pretty little dress, flyin´in the breeze
saw the smile on her pretty, little face
Unawhare of what was going on
that she was a child on a killin´field...

Mary...

I - branches and leaves gently swept aside
(tender whispers in the trees)
She turned - and she saw me standin´there!
(a moment, Sir, to seize)

I asked her name, strokin´her soft across her hair
she told me - her name was "Mary"
Just like a princess dancing on a meadow
just like a little story-book fairy...

Mary...

She - wondered who I was - and I told her!
I told her - I had a surprise...
"We´re gonna´play a little game on the meadow"
"gonna´play, little girl, that you´ll be dead..."

Her eyes just teased "what a funny game!"
as my fingers touched her neck...
She didn´t scream, Sir, it was funny...
I could do all the things - that was in my head

Mary

OH, Lord
Do You think?
She´ll ever forgive me?
Track Name: Courage (acoustic version)
COURAGE by Joe Jaunty © 2012

"I wish I was dead", he said with a smile
"I turn ninetyeight when the warm summer wind hits fall
I outlived everyone - and that´s no life...
I would give everything that I have - to bring them back..."
"My thoughts sometimes, cruelly, play me a prank
that I´m still a young man - deep inside...
But those wrinkles on my hands - have reached out and touched life...
come what may - I´m not afraid to die..."

CHORUS:
He said his middle name was "Courage"
I could see that he was almost blind...
yet - he saw things much clearer than You and I...
Yeah - his middle name was "Courage"
he walked here for quite some time now
- Living forever is not on everyone´s mind...

---------
"I can see the sun - when I squint and close my eyes...
and I can feel the mild breeze - but I´m cold inside...
seems like only memories can keep me warm...
Time does that to you when You´ve lived for as long as I..."

"The doctors says - that my heart - is just fine - /what do they know?/
and that it will go on - and on -´til the end of time
But that young man behind the counter - who sold me this gun...
he just took a good look at my face - (and) never asked me why..."

CHORUS:
He said his middle name was "Courage"
I could see that he was almost blind...
yet - he saw things much clearer than You and I...
Yeah - his middle name was "Courage"
and he walked here for quite some time now...
- Living forever is not on everyone´s mind...

Living forever - is not on everyone´s mind...

Track Name: Woman On A Mountain (original)
WOMAN ON A MOUNTAIN © Joe Jaunty (2011)

You say that I look OK - you´re looking at a photo...

just taken the other day (truth?) I look kinda´silly, don´t You think?

cos it´s hard to believe - that someone like You
would even give me a second glance

cos when I look at myself - it cuts - like glass...

You say that I make You feel like You can almost walk on water...

but God hasn´t me convinced - (I guess) I´m still a doubting atheist...

So it´s hard for me to see and to really believe
that what you say has any substance at all...

cos when I look in the mirror - I can´t find - anything at all...

I - can hear your heart beat all the way from the mountains........
and it makes - me wear my feelings on a sleeve - like a kind of outfit.........
cos I can hardly believe - when You say - that
I´m the one..............
Your hands are touching me like the rays from the Sun............
You´re a Woman On A Mountain - and I´m - nothin´ at all...


You say that I make You feel like a reflection in a window
a dancing gentle breeze on the meadows of Your heart........

but I can´t help to believe - sitting by myself
I kind of thrown away all the keys..........

like a pearly, covered cabinet
open up; please........

I - can hear your heart beat all the way from the mountains
and it makes - me wear my feelings on a sleeve - like a kind of outfit...........
cos I can hardly believe - when You say - that
I´m the one........

Your hands are touching me like the rays from the Sun

you´re a Woman On A Mountain - and I´m - nothin´ at all...

Yes, you´re a Woman On A Mountain - and I´m - nothin´ at all...
Track Name: SHOES
SHOES by Joe Jaunty (original) © 2012

Intro: I got shoes that that choose to follow me around.
Instead of takin´a step and dare to try - that path on the wide horizon. I think my laces are kinda´tied, cuz I stumble all the time.
But now I´m taking off the shoes - and I walk barefoot all the time.
Yeeeah - I´m kickin´off my SHOES and I walk barefoot - All the time!
---
My Mama often told me (I remember that she sighed)
She said son: "Why don´t You try a different kind-of-line?"
Well, I didn´t quite understand what she meant, but that´s all right
cuz now I figured out my own way to avoid that thin, blue line...

CHORUS:
I got shoes, shoes, shoes that follows me around...
they´re different kind of sneakers - they all snuck up from behind!
But in void of all those shoe-wears - I guess I´ve drawn the line
cuz from now on I am walking BAREFOOT all the time!
/YEAH!/ I´m kickin´off my shoes - and I walk BAREFOOT all the time!
---

My dad did always mention: "you gotta´make you´re mark in life!
It doesn´t matter where U go - just walk in a STRAIGHT LINE!"
But I´ve come to realize - that line curves all the time...
So I´m putting my shoes on a shelf - and walk barefoot all the time!
/YEAH/ I´m putting my shoes on the shelf and walk BAREFOOT all the time!

CHORUS:
I got shoes, shoes, shoes that follows me around...
they´re different kind of sneakers - they all snuck up from behind!
But in void of all those shoe-wears - I guess I´ve drawn the line
cuz from now on I am walking BAREFOOT all the time!
/YEAH!/ I´m kickin´off my shoes - and I walk BAREFOOT all the time!
Track Name: DUMB-ASS-FOOL!
DUMB-ASS-FOOL

//Lyrics & Music by Joe Jaunty//

My head is an apartment
bitterness is my grey wallpaper
Just a one-room-apartment
The only tenant is me...

It´s based in the downtown
in the center of everyone´s attention
(you might think) that I am used to it by now
but it gets worse day by day...

U maybe think that U are ugly
but I´m pretty sure - I´m uglier than you
U may think that you´re a fool
but I´m pretty certain (that)
I´m dumber than you...

If U think that U are ugly
Hey! Take a look at this face!
(and tell me) ain´t I just a waste of space?

I´m the fool of fools
The number one dumb-ass-fool!

My head is an apartment
I decorate my walls with crazy thoughts
There´s nothin´much goin´on...
I scare the neighbours off one by one...
(and) if U try knocking on my door
I will tell U off -
Don´t come around here no more!

/KEEP THE FUCK OUT!/

/U maybe think that U are ugly.../ (rep)

My head is an apartment
the walls are thin
I can hear people talk about me
I close the door and shut them blinds
and pretend - that I am fine...

If U think that U are ugly
I´m pretty sure - I´m uglier than You!

If U think that you´re a fool

HEY - Look at me!

I´m a Dumb-Ass-Fool!!

DELIRIUM TWEEDLEDUM(b) by Joe Jaunty
/Sing-Along-Drunk-Song/


I can see a birdie in the sky!
It´s sitting on a branch - just over there!
And just a while ago, when I was walking underneath
that shitty tweedle-dee-dum did a Pee!

I can´t seem to find my other shoe...
it´s really quite annoying - tuddledoo...
I´m pretty sure I once had two - but no matter how I look
there is only one there on my other foot...

And I can´t find the strings on my Guitar!
I think some bastard turned it upside-down!
Coz no matter how I play it - I can´t hit a single note!
Just yesterday I was a fuckin´Poet!

My bottle is as empty as my head
(those drummer-boys can really wake the dead)
The only way to Shut-em-up
is to drown them with my friend /My Best Friend!/
So - Fill ér up - and here we go again!
Yeah, Fill ér up - it´s Party-Time again...
