Lyrics

You're Mine

Written By: Danny Morris

She came upon a starry night, into the desert void.
She looked at me and with her eyes she said you have a choice.
Gaze into the fireball of a never-ending kiss.
No better way to sell your soul on such a night like this.

And soon I woke on hands and knees in a viscous battle for
the golden earring that she lost on the tiny sand dance floor.
Still I wanted more. And still I needed, and still I cried, and still I screamed for more.

You're mine. You're mine. You're mine tonight and ever more.

And down the alleyway I ran. The golden prize in my hand.
I wish I could stay at home to be you're only man.

When you live in the fiery hell underneath her spell,
you'll wish her near to torment you, you'll beg and plead for more.
Still you'll want for more. Still you'll cry, still you'll scream, still you'll die for more.

You're mine. You're mine. You're mine tonight and ever more.
You're mine. You're mine. You're mine tonight and ever more.

Our Moon

Written By: Danny Morris

Do you think that he's awake my Love?
The man who lives upon the moon above
Shining down and is he thinking of
You and I so far apart?

And if we wish upon the stars so bright
He'll melt the world with his warm moonlight
And together we will dream tonight?
You are always in my heart

Now my child you must rest your eyes
Let the wind sing it's lullabies
And forget about the many miles
You are from my loving arms

And as we dance among the silver clouds
Ride on a moonbeam to the ground
As we tumble we will laugh out loud
You are always in my heart

See my Child our moon has lit the sky
Guiding me back to your side
Angels smiling down to you and I
And we are never far apart

Storm Surge

Written By: Danny Morris

I've seen the lightning
Felt the thunderbolt
I've heard the crying
Of a thousand voices

But you can't hide
From the rising tide
Ain't no use to running
There's a Storm Surge coming.

Forty days and
Forty nights
Flood waters keep rising
You better make things right

Cause you can't hide
From the rising tide
Like a freight train running
There's a Storm Surge coming.

Oh Yeah, Oh Chile

In the wind a howlin'
You'll like to drop to your knees and
Beg for forgiveness
For all your dirty deeds

Cause you can't hide
From the rising tide
Ain't no use to running
There's a Storm Surge coming.

Oh Yeah, Oh Chile

Santa's Gone Surfing!

Written By: Danny Morris

Santa’s Gone Surfing!
Well, it’s Christmas time again all you boys and girls
Santa’s hip-hoppin’ around the world.
But on Christmas Day’s night
When his work is done

He closes up shop back at the North Pole
And says “Come on Mama C. let’s get out of the cold!”
And they head for the coast, for some fun in the sun!

Soups up the sled with a 545
Got his red bathing suit and his Bonzai board
Hangs a sign on the door
For all the little elves to see.

It says “Santa’s Gone Surfin’!”
Oh, boy!
It says “Santa’s Gone Surfin’!”
Oh, boy!
It says “Santa’s Gone Surfin’!”
Just look at him go!

Soups up the sled with a 545
Got his red bathing suit and his Bonzai board
Hangs a sign on the door
For all the reindeer to see.

It says “Santa’s Gone Surfin’!”
Oh, boy!
It says “Santa’s Gone Surfin’!”
Oh, boy!
It says “Santa’s Gone Surfin’!”
Just look at him go!

Merry Christmas, Santa Baby!
You sure can tear it up!
Ho, ho, ho!
Merry Christmas Mama C!
I sure loves my new long-stick!
Now let’s shake and stomp!

Santa’s Gone Surfin’!
Oh, boy!
Just look at him go!

We Real Cool

Get behind and we be on ya.
Like flies on stink.

You dis and we drive by
Gonna blow you straight to heaven.

We Real Dead.

We Real Cool.
We skip school
We shoot pool.
We Real Cool.
