D009RV02: Weekend Tonight

Written By: Garrett D. Schanck

Well I just got canned from work
No more dealin with their quirks
No more feelin like a jerk
Time for us to go berserk

Now you might think I'm crazy
But I ain't just bein lazy
I've just had it up to here
And I need a bunch of beer

Next week I'll head to town
To that unemployment line
But tonight I wanna rock this town and drink some moonshine

Let's start the weekend tonight
Let's start the weekend tonight
Why wait for Saturday night
I'm ready to fight
Let's start the weekend tonight

Let's start the weekend tonight
Let's start the weekend tonight
Can't wait for Saturday night
You're lookin so tight
Let's start the weekend tonight

Well my starter's on the fritz
Can't afford to get it fixed
Unemployment is the pits
We'll be buyin lots of grits

From the corporate pigs who did this
In the name of better bidness
Well screw their bottom line
They can kiss my sweet behind

Next week I'll to head to town
To that unemployment line
But tonight I'm gonna boogie down and have a good time

Let's start the weekend tonight
Let's start the weekend tonight
Why wait for Saturday night
I'm ready to fight
Let's start the weekend tonight

Let's start the weekend tonight
Let's start the weekend tonight
Can't wait for Saturday night
You're lookin so tight
Let's start the weekend tonight

Next week I'll to head to town
To that unemployment line
But tonight I'm gonna rock the joint and have a good time

Let's start the weekend tonight
Let's start the weekend tonight
Now I'm seein the light
Let's party hearty tonight
Let's start the weekend tonight

Let's start the weekend tonight
Let's start the weekend tonight
It's feelin so right
Let's start the party tonight
Let's start the weekend tonight

D019RV01: Have a Good Day

Written By: Garrett D. Schanck

Any day you're not six feet under is a good day
Any day that big ole world's still spinnin' around
Let the small stuff go and the good stuff grow 'til it's okay
Don't let that goofy ole world start bringin' you down

I knew a girl whose big ole world came crashin' down on her head
She could have given up, but she stuck it out instead
Stubborn as a mule, never losin' her cool, it's funny what the mind can do
I asked about her day, and this is what she said

Any day I'm not six feet under is a good day
Any day that big ole world's still spinnin' around
Let the small stuff go and the good stuff flow into your brain
When that goofy ole world starts bringin' you down

Now she sips Eclipse and sails the Caribbean, with nothin' bad in her head
She could have given up, but she toughed it out instead
We danced and we talked once at Captain Tony's, funny how a moment can last
I said Becky how's your day, and here is what she said

Any day I'm not six feet under is a good day
Any day that big ole world's still spinnin' around
Let the small stuff go and the good stuff grow, do it your way
When that goofy ole world starts bringin' you down

Any day you're not six feet under is a good day
Any day that big ole world's still spinnin' around
Let the small stuff go and the good stuff grow 'til it's okay
It's just a goofy ole world, don't let it start bringin' you down

It's just a goofy ole world, don't let it start bringin' you down

D015PV03: I Should Have Been a Farmer

Written By: Garrett D. Schanck

Called in happy today
The garden looks like a painting by Monet
Think I'll go outside and play
A better kind of working day

Old Yasgur had it down
Best chocolate milk around
Nourishing the Garden that grew in his town
Way back in '69
Looking for things we never did find
I should have been a farmer

Called in happy again today
A fence needs mending, think I'll go outside and play
After all the years away
There's still something left to say

A simpler kind of life
A better kind of strife
And after the day sharing music at night
Way back in '69
Searching for a sign
I should have been a farmer

Old Yasgur made it real
Peace & music in his field
Everyday people on a pillow surreal
Way back in '69
Everybody feeling fine
I should have been a farmer

D002RV02: A Good Day to Die

Written By: Garrett D. Schanck

Another hot day out in the desert
Trying to stay cool in this heavy weather
Watching everything that my eyes can gather
Wondering if I'll last the day

I remember my recruitment on the reservation
And confiding my fears to a chief of my nation
I remember one thing that wise man said to me

Take courage
It's a good day to die
Nothing lasts but the earth and the memories you leave behind

Take courage
It's a good day to die
Nothing lasts but the earth and the memories you leave behind

Are you missing cold sheets and downy pillows
Friday night in town drinking sarsaparilla
Cruising down the street with your elbow out the window
Hoping you can catch her eye

And your folks and your brothers who you thought were so silly
On Sunday afternoons on the porch back in Philly
I pass to you now what that wise man said to me

Take courage
It's a good day to die
Nothing lasts but the earth and the memories you leave behind

Take courage
It's a good day to die
Nothing lasts but the earth and the memories you leave behind

Are you thinking of the first time you saw your daughter
How you felt when you got your final orders
As you listen to the gunfire at the border
Do you question if it's all worthwhile

Are you angry at the old men who sent you here
Deprived of everything that you hold dear
Be at peace and remember what that wise man said to me

Take courage
It's a good day to die
Nothing lasts but the earth and the memories you leave behind

Take courage
It's a good day to die
Nothing lasts but the earth and the memories you leave behind

D020RV01: New Moon Night

Written By: Garrett D. Schanck

Popcorn shrimp and margaritas, let's go out for a bite
And go dancing in the dark on this new moon night
There will be a million stars in the clear desert sky tonight
Let's let the Milky Way be our soft candlelight
And go dancing in the dark on a new moon night

You've been working so hard, you know it wouldn't be right
Not to do something special on this Saturday night
Let's throw some gear in the back of the truck
And hit the road around twilight

Enchiladas and a cooler and some midnight delight
Let's go dancing in the dark on this new moon night
There will be a million stars in the clear desert sky tonight
Let's let the Milky Way be our soft candlelight
And go dancing in the dark on a new moon night

The work is all done, things are looking all right
Let's do something special on this Saturday night
Let's throw some gear in the back of the truck
And hit the road around twilight

Turn the radio on, turn off the headlights
Let's go dancing in the dark on this new moon night, there are
At least a million stars in the clear desert sky tonight
Let's let the Milky Way be our soft candlelight
And go dancing in the dark on a new moon night

Dancing in the dark on a new moon night
Dancing in the dark on a new moon night, there are
At least a million stars in the clear desert sky tonight
The Milky Way is our soft candlelight
Dancing in the dark on a new moon night

Dancing in the dark on a new moon night
Sha la la la la, la la la la la
