Lyrics

Children of the Earth

Written By: Gordon Lustig

LISTEN TO THE VOICES
RISING UP ABOVE
SINGING OUT A MESSAGE IN
THE LANGUAGE OF LOVE

THAT WE CAN COME TOGETHER
LEARN TO SHARE AND TRUST
FOR ALL THE WORLD’S CHILDREN
ARE CHILDREN LIKE US

HIGH UP IN THE MOUNTAINS
FAR ACROSS THE SEA
WE ARE ALL ONE PEOPLE
A WORLD FAMILY

WE WILL SING FOR FREEDOM
SING FOR ALL WE’RE WORTH
ALL OF US ARE CHILDREN
CHILDREN OF THE EARTH

LISTEN TO THE DRUMBEAT
FROM A FAR OFF LAND
YOU MAY HEAR A RHYTHM
THAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND

BE BRAVE AND FACE THE MUSIC
THE LANGUAGE AND THE LORE
AND YOU’LL DISCOVER TREASURES
YOU’VE NEVER KNOWN BEFORE

HIGH UP IN THE MOUNTAINS
FAR ACROSS THE SEA
WE ARE ALL ONE PEOPLE
A WORLD FAMILY

WE WILL SING FOR FREEDOM
SING FOR ALL WE’RE WORTH
ALL OF US ARE CHILDREN
CHILDREN OF THE EARTH

ALL OF US ARE CHILDREN
CHILDREN OF THE EARTH

I Am Not James Taylor

Written By: Gordon Lustig


NOW I AM NOT JAMES TAYLOR
NOR AM I A TAYLOR’S SON
NO HIT SONGS HAVE I WRITTEN
NO GRAMMIES HAVE I WON

I WASN’T RAISED IN MASSACHESETTS
OR THE CAROLINAS
YES, I AM NOT JAMES TAYLOR
NEVER WILL BE, NEVER WAS

I’VE NEVER BEEN ON HEROIN
I’VE NEVER GONE INSANE
I MAY HAVE WALKED A COUNTRY ROAD
BUT I AIN’T SEEN FIRE AND RAIN

JUST BECAUSE I PLAY GUITAR
AND SING A LITTLE LIKE HE DOES
IT DON’T MEAN I’M JAMES TAYLOR
NEVER WILL BE, NEVER WAS

I HAVE THIS OLD RECURRING DREAM
I’M LYING IN MY BED
THERE’S A YOUNG BLOND BEAUTY
PLANTING KISSES ON MY HEAD

THE SUN COMES UP
SHE SEES MY FACE
SCREAMS AND SHOOTS ME DEAD
I DON’T LIKE THIS DREAM

‘CAUSE I AM NOT JAMES TAYLOR
TAKE A LOOK AND YOU WILL SEE
AND I DON’T SOUND MUCH LIKE HIM
HE JUST SOUNDS A LOT LIKE ME

THERE IS ONE OF US IN EVERY TOWN
HOW MANY, I’M NOT SURE

BUT I AM NOT JAMES TAYLOR
AND WE ARE NOT JAMES TAYLOR
NEVER WILL BE, NEVER WERE

Big Tits

Written By: Gordon Lustig

I HAVEN’T OWNED A TV SET SINCE NINETEEN SIXTY FIVE
BUT I CAUGHT A GLIMPSE
THE OTHER DAY AND MERCY SAKES ALIVE
BEAUTY HAS BEEN REDEFINED
WOMEN HAVE BEEN REDESIGNED
TITILLATION COMES TO MIND
AND THE MESSAGE LOUD AND CLEAR

YA GOTTA HAVE BOOBS
YA GOTTA HAVE LIPS
A CHISELED NOSE
AND A MODIFIED CHIN

CG EYES
CHEEK BONES HIGH
NOT A LINE UPON YOUR SKIN

YA GOTTA HAVE TEETH
A BLINDING WHITE
AND A SMILE THAT NEVER QUITS
SO GET A LITTLE NIP
GET A LITTLE TUCK
GET A PAIR OF NICE BIG TITS

YA SEE ‘EM ON THE BOOB TUBE
AND IN EVERY MAGAZINE
EVERY BUS AND BILLBOARD
FROM PERTH TO ABILENE

BIG TITS, YOU’LL BE WINED AND DINED
BIG TITS, HOW YOUR FLOOR WILL SHINE
HURRY, DON’T GET LEFT BEHIND
BIG BIG TITS

(CHORUS) (INST.)

(BRIDGE)
NOT JUST FOR LADIES BY THE WAY
ANYONE CAN JOIN THE FRAY
FIX THAT SMILE, LOSE THAT GREY
BECOME THE REAL YOU

SELF ESTEEM GOES OFF THE CHARTS
WHEN YOU ENHANCE YOUR PRIVATE PARTS
WIN THE MINDS AND LIFT THE HEARTS
OF THE WELL-TO-DO

(CHORUS)

(LAST CHORUS)
YA GOTTA HAVE BOOBS
YA GOTTA HAVE LIPS
A CHISELED NOSE
AND A MODIFIED CHIN

CG EYES
CHEEK BONES HIGH
NOT A LINE UPON YOUR SKIN

IF THE WORLD HAS GOT YA DOWN
AND YOUR LIFE IS JUST THE PITS
GET A LITTLE NIP, A TUCK
LIFE WON’T SUCK
WHEN YOU GET A PAIR OF NICE BIG

IT’S A GIFT YOU WON’T REGRET
AND YOU’LL LOVE YOURSELF TO BITS
GET A LITTLE NIP, A TUCK
AND JUST FOR LUCK
A PAIR OF
NICE
BIG
TITS

MODIFIED EYES
CHEEK BONES HIGH
NOT A LINE UPON YOUR SKIN

YA GOTTA HAVE TEETH
A BLINDING WHITE

TUMMY TIGHT
BUTT JUST RIGHT
NOT AN OUNCE OF EXTRA SKIN

IF THE WORLD HAS GOT YA DOWN
AND YOUR LIFE IS JUST THE PITS
GET A LITTLE NIP, A TUCK
LIFE WON’T SUCK
WHEN YOU GET A PAIR OF NICE BIG…

IT’S A GIFT YOU WON’T REGRET
AND YOU’LL LOVE YOURSELF TO BITS
GET A LITTLE NIP, A TUCK
AND JUST FOR LUCK
A PAIR OF

WE WAKE UP AT SIX FOURTEEN EACH DAY TO 102.3
SEVEN MINUTE SHOWER AND GET DRESSED
SOME SLICED FRESH FRUIT, PLAIN YOGURT,
WHOLE WHEAT FRENCH TOAST, IF THERE’S TIME
DRY FRUIT LOOPS IN THE CAR IF WE ARE PRESSED

I DRIVE AN HOUR AND A HALF TO SIT FROM NINE TO FIVE
YOU CALL AT LUNCH PRECISELY TWELVE O’TWO
TOMORROW, DEAR, IS WEDNESDAY
AND WE’RE GONNA CALL IN SICK
‘CAUSE TOMORROW, HERE IS WHAT WE’RE GONNA DO…

LET’S BE SPONTANEOUS, EXTEMPORANEOUS
LET’S MAKE NO PLANS
AND LET WHAT HAPPENS HAPPEN

CAUTION, WE’LL THROW TO THE WIND
PROMISES, WE’LL RESCIND
LEAVE DESTINY TO CHANCE
AND MAYBE FIND ROMANCE

NO NEED FOR OLD PRECEPTS
LET’S TAKE SOME GIANT STEPS
IF WE GET LOST THERE’LL BE NO FUSS
‘CAUSE WE’LL STILL BE US
JUST MORE SPONTANEOUS

AT EIGHT WE’LL DROP THE KIDS AT MOM’S
AT NINE WE’LL HIT THE COAST
BY ELEVEN WE’LL BE SIPPING CABERNET
I’LL TELL YOU THAT I LOVE YOU THEN I’LL IMPROVISE A TOAST AND HONEY, HERE’S EXACTLY WHAT I’LL SAY…

LET’S BE SPONTANEOUS, EXTEMPORANEOUS
LET’S MAKE NO PLANS AND LET WHAT HAPPENS HAPPEN
CAUTION, WE’LL THROW TO THE WIND
PROMISES, WE’LL RESCIND
LEAVE DESTINY TO CHANCE
AND MAYBE FIND ROMANCE

LET’S WING A NEW REFRAIN WHILE
HOPPING A ONE-WAY TRAIN
THAT ENDS WHERE OUR FRIENDS WON’T SEE US
THEY’D ONLY ENVY US
AND HOW THEY’D LONG TO BE US
NO REINS, NO CHAINS ON US
CAREFREE AND SO SPONTANEOUS
