Track Name: She Plunged Her Fair Body
Lyrics by Devin Bean
Adapted from 'I Never Will Marry' - Traditional

They say that love is gentle
But it's only brought me pain
The only girl I ever loved
Has left with another man
I struck down this lover
His body she did find
Her cry was oh so lonesome
I nearly lost my mind

She plunged her fair body
Into the waters so deep
She closed her sweet eyes
Into the waters to sleep

A full remorse now that we’re apart
But no change in the star’s align
No ache remains in her silent heart
Yet she’s left me with all of mine
I will never marry
I'll share no one’s love
I expect to live single
Till I fly with the doves

She plunged her fair body
Into the waters so deep
She closed her sweet eyes
Into the waters to sleep

The shells in the ocean
Shall be my resting bed
As the fishies of the deep
Swim over my head
With rising sun I run to shore
I stand there at her spot
The blood has finally washed away
But sadly she has not

She plunged her fair body
Into the waters so deep
She closed her sweet eyes
Into the waters to sleep
Track Name: All Yours
Lyrics by Nicolette Verone

Come on down to the water
It's fine to keep on all of your clothes
Come on down from the bower
And I will ease you of your heavy load

So won't you stay a little longer with me

It's a whitewash behind us
It's all blizzard and snow
Break the ice across the lake
And we'll meet at the floes

So won't you stay a little longer with me

And I will be all yours
I'll be all yours
I'll be all yours
I'll be all yours
I'll be all yours
I'll be all yours
I'll be all yours

As we hit the dark of the night
As the lights shudder above
I won't turn back from the plunge
Of the current's strong shove

So won't you stay a little longer with me

And I will be all yours
I'll be all yours
I'll be all yours
I'll be all yours
I'll be all yours
I'll be all yours
I'll be all yours
I will be all yours
I'll be all yours
I'll be all yours
All Yours
Track Name: Come On Home
Lyrics by Nicolette Verone

The warm rains
Come from the plains of Iowa
As I wait for you
To come on home

This cold city life
Won't give me a fighting chance
So I call out
To the changing winds

Oh throw me a line
It's so strange in the middle of the night
Whoa…ooh
Whoa…ooh
I'm a girl on the edge of her life

And when I dream
Well, it's only Michigan I see
And she calls for me
To come on home

Yesterday
The summer fell completely away
And it left us here
With the rest of our lives

Oh throw me a line
It's so strange in the middle of the night
Whoa…ooh
Whoa…ooh
I'm a girl on the edge of her life
I'm a girl on the edge of her life
Track Name: Up Up Up
Lyrics by Nicolette Verone

Is this terminal
Or is this a disease?
Is this just what happened
What you did to me?

Where did I draw the line
And how'd it get so blurred?
Mistakes that I have made
Have made me so unsure

Up up up against the wall
Flat flat flat against the door
Guess it was a mistake to keep you wanting more

And all the ways that I've felt
There's a simple kind of truth
Permeates those days gone by
And somehow sets me loose

But now that I have seen
What I am capable of
How can I piece towards
Some kind of love

Up up up against the wall
Flat flat flat against the door
Guess it was a mistake to keep you wanting more

Up up up against the wall
Flat flat flat against the door
Guess it was a mistake to keep you wanting more

Up up up against the wall
Flat flat flat against the door
Guess it was a mistake to keep you wanting more
Track Name: Sally
Lyrics by Henry Carey from 'Sally In Our Alley'

Of all the girls that are so smart
There's none like pretty Sally
She is the darling of my heart
And she lives in our alley
There is no lady in the land
Is half so sweet as Sally
She is the darling of my heart
And she lives in our alley

My master and the neighbors all
Make game of me
But when my seven long years are out
O then I'll marry
My master and the neighbors all
Make game of me
But when my seven long years are out
O then I'll marry

When Christmas comes about again
O then I shall have money
I'll hoard it up, and, box and all
I'll give it to my honey
I would it were ten thousand pound
I'd give it all to Sally
She is the darling of my heart
And she lives in our alley

My master and the neighbors all
Make game of me
But when my seven long years are out
O then I'll marry
My master and the neighbors all
Make game of me
But when my seven long years are out
O then I'll marry

My master and the neighbors all
Make game of me
But when my seven long years are out
O then I'll marry
My master and the neighbors all
Make game of me
But when my seven long years are out
O then I'll marry
Track Name: You're My Baby
Lyrics by Nicolette Verone

So you want to leave
Leave us and run so
Far away
Well
I will not let you 'cause you want to stay
You want to stay but you don't know it yet

I have to
Let you know that if you walk
Out that door
There won't be anything left out there
Cause I am all that you'll ever need

Cause you're my baby
You're my baby
You're my baby
You're my baby
You're my baby, yeah yeah yeah
You're mine

Baby,
Come a little closer and I'll
Hold you tight
I'll hold you like you ain't never known
I'll keep you with me for all times
Yeah

Closer now
Closer now 'til you're in my grasp
And I will tend to you like a
Keepsake stowed away
And I will throw away the key

Cause you're my baby
You're my baby
You're my baby
You're my baby
You're my baby, yeah yeah yeah
You're mine

Cause you're my baby
You're my baby
You're my baby
You're my baby
You're my baby, yeah yeah yeah
You're mine
Track Name: Somebody Nice
Lyrics by Adam Gramling

I want to meet somebody nice
Someone that's smart and full of life
You'd think that'd be easy
But sadly it's not
I only get losers and mopers and duds
Yeah, I only get losers and mopers and duds

I want to meet someone like her
She looks like an angel and I bet that she purrs
I haven't been lucky
I'm a regular fool
But give me one shot and I'll show her I'm cool
Just give me one shot and I'll show her I'm cool

Love love love love
All of these things I've been dreaming of
Love love love love
Never abandon me love

I think I met somebody nice
He gets all my jokes and he doesn't start fights
I don't want to curse it
But I think that it's love
I shouldn't have said it, I'll be swept in the flood
Yeah I shouldn't have said it, now I'll be swept in the flood

Love love love love
All of these things I've been dreaming of
Love love love love
Never abandon me
Rise up and stand with me
Never abandon me love

I wasn't far off when I bet that she purred
She's been purring for hours and in such sweet words
I don't want to jinx it
But I think she's my girl
I think I'll be giving her purring a whirl
I think I'll be giving her purring a whirl

Love love love love
All of these things I've been dreaming of
Love love love love
Never abandon me
Rise up and stand with me
Never abandon me
Rise up and stand with me
Love love love love love love
Love love love love love love love love
Track Name: Miss You
Lyrics by Adam Gramling

I miss you in the morning
Miss you in the evening
And even in between those times
I miss you in the gray skies
I miss you in the blue skies
I miss you when the sky's on fire

Do you miss me too?
That's all I need to know
Or have you let your
Foolish heart grow cold

There's really only one way to answer
And that's coming home

I miss you in the morning
Miss you in the evening
And even in between those times
I miss you in the gray skies
I miss you in the blue skies
I miss you when the sky's on fire

Do you miss me too?
That's all I need to know
Or have you let your
Foolish heart grow cold

There's really only one way to answer
And that's coming home

Do you miss me too?
That's all I need to know
Or have you let your
Foolish heart grow cold

There's really only one way to answer
And that's coming
Oh there's really only one way to answer
And that's coming
That's coming
That's coming home
Track Name: Burgertown
Lyrics by Adam Gramling

Oh you look bored with everything I say
I can't help that I only like three things
First comes love and then video games
Last comes strangers they never know my ways

Tell me why I gotta change
If you're in love with me for me
Then you know how I can be
I can be exactly what you want me to be

Oh you say we never go anywhere nice
But what about Burgertown, Burgertown is awfully nice
Oh you think I'm joking you think I'm kidding around
But I'm only serious I'm only ever profound

Tell me why I gotta change
If you're in love with me for me
Then you know how I can be
I can be exactly what you want me to be

Tell me why I gotta change
If you're in love with me for me
Then you know how I can be
I can be exactly what you want me to be
Track Name: Right Where You Want Me
Lyrics by Adam Gramling

I shouldn't even be talking to you
I could find myself in trouble
I tend to gravitate towards trouble

Why shouldn't you even be talking to me?
I could find myself in trouble
I tend to gravitate towards trouble

You got a girl at home?
She's at work but yes i do
She's at work right now but yeah you know
You got a girl at work?
Could be home by now but yes I do
Could be home by now but you know me

What fun is playing nice
When you got me right where you want me
Right where you want me
Right where you want me
(How could you know where I want you to be
It could be on the moon for all you know)

I shouldn't still be talking to you
There's no one else to talk to
The bar closed down it's just me and you

I shouldn't even be walking with you
There's nothing wrong with walking
In ten minutes we'll start the bonking

You got a guy at home?
I don't know where he is but yes I do
Don't know where he is but yes I do
You got a guy in jail?
I don't know where he is but yes I do
Don't know where he is but yes I do

What fun is playing nice
When you got me right where you want me
Right where you want me
Right where you want me
(How could you know where I want you to be
It could be on the moon for all you know)

When you got me right where you want me
Right where you want me
Right where you want me
(How could you know where I want you to be
It could be on the moon for all you know)
