Late Bloomin Baby Boomer Son of a Gun
by Cy Balladeer (Tom Hudson)

I’m Just a Late Bloomin Baby Boomer Son of a Gun
Having Some Fun
Life On the Run
Getting it Done
I’m Just a Late Bloomin Baby Boomer Son of a Gun

It started after High School, Dad said what you Wanna be
I said pardon me dear Father, but I think I’ll wait and see
Find out what the truth is, What is right for me
So that every step I take is, headed toward my Destiny

Cause I’m Just a Late Bloomin Baby Boomer Son of a Gun
Having Some Fun
Life On the Run
Getting it Done
I’m Just a Late Bloomin Baby Boomer Son of a Gun

My 20’s were for College, A schoolin I did buy
My 30’s were for travel, Round the world I did fly
My 40’s were for family, Step-Parentin I did try
But by my 50’s I was worried, thought Life was passin me by

That’s when Dad sent me a message, from the far side of the Sun
He said life begins at 60, and your life has just begun
So don’t worry bout tomorrow, or the things you’ve never done
Cause you are just a late bloomin baby boomer son of a gun

You’re Just a Late Bloomin Baby Boomer Son of a Gun
Having Some Fun
Life On the Run
Getting it Done
You’re Just a Late Bloomin Baby Boomer Son of a Gun

So I thought about what I had said so many years before
And I thought of all the things I’ve been, to make my money flow
And I knew right at that moment, Just where I had to go
Cause this late bloomin boomer, Still has some seeds to sow

I’ve been a Timber Cruiser, pounded nails in the sun
Managed Building Contracts, fixed computers just for fun
But none of these compare to, the life I’ve just begun
Cause I’m a late bloomin baby boomer son of a gun

Chorus
I’m Just a Late Bloomin Baby Boomer Son of a Gun
Having Some Fun
Life On the Run
Getting it Done
I’m Just a Late Bloomin Baby Boomer Son of a Gun

Don't Recommend It

Written By: Cy Balladeer (Tom Hudson)

Don’t Recommend It
By Cy Balladeer (Tom Hudson)

Cause I Don’t Understand it
I Just can’t comprehend it
And I sure don’t recommend it
For Anybody Else

Just When You Think You Understand
How to Live by God’s Command
And to Prosper in Peace and Harmony
He Sends a Hurricane Your Way
A Tornado, Flood or Quake
And Washes Away Life with Tragedy

-Chorus-

Why Are There Leaders That Oppress
And People That Confess
That They Only Want the Things that Should Not Be
While They Torture, Maim and Kill
With a Sadistic Evil Thrill
That Washes Away Life With Tragedy

-Chorus-

How Could You Live Your Life So Well
In Fear of God and Hell
With Every Effort to Protect Your Family
Then Watch Cancer Come Along and Take Your Loved Ones
Weak and Strong
And Wash Away Your Life With Tragedy

-Chorus-
-Chorus-

A Mortal Sin

Written By: Cy Balladeer (Tom Hudson)

A Mortal Sin
By Cy Balladeer (Tom Hudson)

You Say You Don’t Like Our Government
But where were you when all the funds got spent
That put us in the whole we now are in
Don’t you think it WAS a Mortal Sin?
Why would you want to go back there again?

We had a surplus not too long ago
Till De-regulation dealt a lethal blow
It put us in the hole we now are in
Don’t you think it WAS a Mortal Sin?
Why would you want to go back there again?

Obstruction is now a way of life
The Harm it’s done has braught us so much strife
It put us in the hole we now are in
Don’t you think it IS a Mortal Sin?
How Could you want to go through that again?

Corporations do lie and cheat and steal
They make Greed a Passion that is Deathly Real
They put us in the hole we now are in
Don’t You think it IS a Mortal Sin?
Why would you want to go through that again?

Two Years Down the Road and we wonder why
Our Leader Can’t fulfill his rally cry
To Lift us from the hole we had been in
And to Wash away that Mortal Sin
And Never Let us go back there again

So Rush to Judgement cannot be the way
To solve the issues we have got today
That Put us in the hole we still are in
Yes we know it IS a Mortal Sin
And we never want to go back there again
No we never want to go back there again
Never ever let us go back there again
