Lyrics

Information Overload

Written By: D.Clabby

in this communication revolution it's information overload

in my fathers day what they taught is all they learned
seems now we can search for everything that could be known

in this communication revolution it's information overload

in those days gone by they done what they where told
ignorance is bliss was said be still & you will know

the more i learn the more i know the less i understand
the more i learn the more i know the less i understand

Blame It On The Weather

Written By: D.Clabby

you say to me yeah well whatever
i say to you blame it on the weather

come rain or sleet or snow we've got a place to go
to wash our cares away to brighten up our day
& if you see me there grab yourself a chair
we'll down a load of stout & sit there giving out

you say to me yeah well whatever
i say to you blame it on the weather

and if the sun did shine we'd have to make the time
to find ourselves a place to soak up those rare rays
and if you see me there garb yourself a beer
we'll stay until it's late and fall home in a state

you say to me yeah well whatever
i say to you blame it on the weather

and aint it good to know we got a place to go
to wash our cares away to brighten up our day
you say to me yeah well whatever
i say to you blame it on the weather
