Lyrics

Purple, Green and Gold

Written By: Bill Aspinwall

Purple, Green and Gold

In a February fog, the first redbuds glow
the bearded oak's whiskers are slight green light show
a welder's sparks shower from an overhead road
purple, green and gold

Wisteria's hanging like grapes on a vine
pine pollen's fallin' like some kinda crazy green moonshine
in the first heat of April, the jasmine explodes
purple, green and gold

(chorus)
Purple, green and gold
colors of a creole spring
hiding a baby bean in the breakfast cake of a cajun king
purple, green and gold
got blood on our hands, jazz in our soul
purple, green and gold

Got your muscadine and mayhaw and huckleberries to behold
some likes their okra fried, & some likes it gumbo'd
had beignets for breakfast, now the beer's finally cold
purple, green and gold

nine hundred souls floating above the avenue Ursulines
hurricane & flood left only mold & mud for our sins
couldn't get enough money for the levee control
purple, green and gold

(chorus)

The Language of Yes

Written By: Bill Aspinwall

The Language of Yes

You make me some kind of happy
more than I thought was possible
you just make it look easy
just comes out natural
with this spell I'm under
I don't have to wonder why
We're just learning to say yes
in the language of yes

Well it’s been every kind of crazy
I was raising up a white flag
until you came into my view now you
is the one that makes my tail wag
used to be just seven wonders,
now there's seven hundred.
Why? We're just learning to say yes
In the language of yes

You just all kind of lovely
& it seems unbelievable
how a brown bag lunch like me
could be sitting at your table
let's take a great big bite
with this newfound appetite
Why? We're just learning to say yes
In the language of yes
