Lyrics

Gluten-Free Blues

Written By: Kyle Dine

Gluten-Free Blues

I can’t eat bread
I can’t eat dough
I can’t eat crust to make my chest hair grow

I can’t eat spaghetti
Or macaroni
If you ask me it’s all a load of bologna

I can always feel the sign
Right in my lower intestine
It gives me pain and tummy aches
It must have been something that I ate

Could have been oats, wheat or rye
Could have been the batter on the fish we buy
They call it gluten, and its absolutin’
The reason I get sick inside

(chorus)

They say it’s not an allergy
But an intolerance from my family tree
I can make buns
And I can make bread
I can make anything that you’re all fed

I make things that are sweet or sour
I make it all with special flour
There’s no difference between you and me
Except the fact that I’m gluten-free

One of the Gang

Written By: Kyle Dine

I can be one of the gang
My pals and I can just hang
What we eat may change but we’re really just the same
Cuz I can be one of the gang

I can be part of the group
Me, him, her, and you
Yeah we’re all in the loop, we’re a big happy troop
Cuz I can be part of the group

Like peas in a pod we all belong
We can be different and still get along
Friends we are, and will always be
I look out for you, and you look out for me
No matter where we go or what we do
It’s so good to have a friend like you

I can be part of a team
Together we can build anything
We can play any sport or act any scene
Cuz we can be part of a team

We can all be friends
The good times they never end
But when times get tough, a hand we will lend
Cuz we can all be friends

Like peas in a pod we all belong
We can be different and still get along
Friends we are, and will always be
I look out for you, and you look out for me
No matter where we go or what we do
It’s so good to have a friend like you

What we eat may change but we’re really just the same
Cuz I can be one of the gang

We can sing in the rain
I hope these days will never change
Cuz I can be one of the gang

Cuz I can be one of the gang

My Epineph-Friend

Written By: Kyle Dine

You and I are not the same
But we both have an allergy
The one thing that we both have in common
Is the medicine we carry

I don’t ever really want to use it
I don’t ever really want to lose it
All I know is that it’s there if I need it

You and I are not the same
Yeah we both have different tastes
The one thing that we both have in common
Is what we carry on our waist

I don’t ever really want to use it
I don’t ever really want to lose it
All I know is that it’s there if I need my

Epi epi epi epi epineph-friend
My epi epi epi epi epineph-friend
When I have it on my side, I know I’ll always be alright

It comes with me everywhere I go
It’s a part of me and that’s a fact
I’m happy to know, just like a friend
When I need it, it’s got my back

I don’t ever really want to use it
I don’t ever really want to lose it
All I know is that it’s there if I need my

Epi epi epi epi epineph-friend
My epi epi epi epi epineph-friend
When I have it on my side, I know I’ll always be alright

It’s got a funky case for a girl or boy
It’s a serious thing and not a toy
If someone asks what’s that I wear
I tell them it’s a buddy who will always be there

When I have it on my side, I know I’ll always be alright

My epi epi epi epi epineph-friend
My epi epi epi epi epineph-friend

When I have it on my side, I know I’ll always be alright

C'est La Vie

Written By: Kyle Dine

You and I see eye to eye
That we don’t mind when others just might
Whether a bruise on the knee, or food allergies
Won’t bother me
C’est la vie

And in this crazy life it’s easy to get caught up in the fuss
When people think we’ve got it bad and it must be so tough

It’s all not as bad as some might make it to be
We can play and have fun
Smile and feel young
So we’ll say
C’est la vie

Give your best and try
And look on the bright side
You can reach the sky
When you keep your head high

Then you will see how happy you’ll be
That’s the key
C’est la vie

And in this crazy life it’s easy to get caught up in the fuss
When people think we’ve got it bad and it must be so tough
It’s all not as bad as some might make it to be
We can play and have fun
Smile and feel young
So we’ll say
C’est la vie

There were problems then, problems now
And forever they’ll be there
So why waste time on worrying
When there’s no time to care

So give thanks that we’re free
Anything we can be
So we’ll say
C’est la vie

Whether a bruise on the knee
Or food allergies
Won’t bother me
C’est la vie

Food Allergies Rock!

Written By: Kyle Dine


Food Allergies Rock!
To tell you the truth
I would rather have them than not
Food Allergies Rock!
I wouldn’t trade them
I’m happy with what I got

Just a few things that I can’t eat
But none of it is in my favourite treat
I can stay safe and I can stay well
Because I stay alert after the dinner bell

I could be a doctor or an astronaut
Whatever I choose I can reach the top
So I have food allergies
But I don’t let them define me

Food Allergies Rock!
Food Allergies Rock!
To tell you the truth
I would rather have them than not
Food Allergies Rock!
Food Allergies Rock!
I wouldn’t trade them
I’m happy with what I got

I can read labels like I read a book
And I‘m so creative when I try to cook
I can eat healthy things like fruit
For every thing I can’t there’s a substitute

I can be brave and speak up for myself
I can find safe foods on a cupboard shelf
Teach my friends what they’re all about
And I’ll be just fine living without

Food Allergies Rock!
Food Allergies Rock!
To tell you the truth
I would rather have them than not
Food Allergies Rock!
Food Allergies Rock!
I wouldn’t trade them
I’m happy with what I got

Food Allergies Rock!
Food Allergies Rock!
Food Allergies Rock!
Food Allergies Rock!

Food Allergies Rock!
Food Allergies Rock!
Food Allergies Rock!
Food Allergies Rock!

Bzzzz

Written By: Kyle Dine

I’m a bee yeah straight from the hive
Six legs and wings to fly
But I can sting
Watch out I can sting!

Because bees are known for only three things:
Spread pollen
Make honey
And sting!

I’m a busy little bee working for a queen
I’m friendly and barely ever mean

But if you get too close to bare
I’m so small I get scared

Because bees are known for only three things:
Spread pollen
Make honey
And sting!

If you swat at me or make a racquet
I’ll be one upset yellow jacket
But if you stay calm and behave
When you say hello, then I’ll say….

Bzzzz
Bzzzz
Bzzzz
Bzzzz

Because bees are known for only three things:
Spread pollen
Make honey
And sting!

Because bees are known for only three things:
Spread pollen
Make honey
And sting!

Porcelain Christmas

Written By: Kyle Dine

Porcelain Christmas – Kyle Dine

Verse 1
There’s a light by each door
And an old corner store
There’s a pond where everyone skates

It’s now Christmas Eve
The town’s full of glee
To find presents under the tree

Pre-chorus
Where cotton is snow
And tinsel is on trees
Ain’t this just how
Christmas should be?

Chorus
I dream of a porcelain Christmas
All sparkled with lights
I dream of Linus with Lucy
Selling 5 cent advice

I dream of traditions and memories too
When my porcelain Christmas comes true

Verse 2
Carolers singing, and church bells are ringing
With a pageant on at the school

But when the last song is sung
And it’s all said and done
It’s family that makes Christmas real

Pre-chorus
Where cotton is snow
And tinsel is on trees
Ain’t this just how
Christmas should be?

Chorus
I dream of a porcelain Christmas
All sparkled with lights

I dream of childhood magic
That you feel Christmas night

I dream of traditions and memories too
When my porcelain Christmas comes true

Bridge
Now that I’m older, December seems colder
But I’ll always warm up with you
BY a fire we’ll gather
Like time doesn’t matter
At Christmas my wish will come true

I dream of a porcelain Christmas
All sparkled with lights
I dream of snow on the rooftops
On a town sparkling white

I dream of traditions and memories too
When my porcelain Christmas comes true

I dream of a porcelain Christmas
All sparkled with lights
I dream of Linus with Lucy
Selling 5 cent advice

I dream of traditions and memories too
When my porcelain Christmas comes true

When I spend my Christmas with you
