Lyrics

YOU DRIVE ME CRAZY

Written By: Greg R. Steinke

YOU DRIVE ME CRAZY
Music/Arrangements & Words Composed by GREG R. STEINKE

INTRO: folk acoustic guitars into heavy guitars

Verse 1:
I know there is something up your sleeve – Its probably something that I won’t believe
You always pick up on my little pet peeves – You make my head spin – You make me crazy
You are always doing something under my skin
I’ve gotta tell you – over and over again

Chorus:
I know you drive me crazy (You drive me crazy)
I know you drive me out of my mind
I know you drive me crazy (You drive me crazy)
It happens to me all the time

Verse 2:
Don’t hang around with a bunch of fools – It’s the difference between win or lose
You are going to make if you bend the rules – It just depends on just what you choose
You got a litmus test to show you the way
If my mind could talk – It would say (oh yeah…..)

Chorus:

Bridge:
My thoughts are going round and round
Don’t know if I’m up or down
Am I in the air or on ground?
I wish you could see – You drive me crazy

Lead Guitar Solo into Intro break

Chorus: 4X - Out

SKINNY MONKEYS

Written By: Greg R. Steinke

SKINNY MONKEYS
Music Arrangements & Words Composed by GREG R. STEINKE

INTRO

Verse 1:
It’s okay – to be a simple chimpanzee
Just a banana – is a simple luxury
With fancy cars – I always wondered why?
Living in cities – with suits and ties

Chorus:
SKINNY MONKEYS – Skinny Monkeys in the streets
Sick and tired of swinging tree to tree
SKINNY MONKEYS – Skinny Monkeys in the streets
Stick around – they’ll make a man out of me

Verse 2:
It’s okay – to be a simple silver back
Because of my size – I’m the leader of the pack
No cells phones or fax machines
No bright city lights or broken dreams

Chorus

Bridge:
Constitution – Evolution – Just Collusion – Revolution
No Solution – Air Pollution – It’s a Concrete Jungle!
SKINNY MONKEYS IN THE STREETS

LEAD GUITAR SOLO – INTRO

WISHIN' & I'M HOPIN'

Written By: Greg R. Steinke

WISHIN’ & I’M HOPIN’
Music/Arrangements & Words Composed by GREG R. STEINKE

INTRO:

Verse 1:
I caught you in my dreams last night – I didn’t know what to do
Woke up in a real cold sweat – hoping that it won’t come true
Didn’t know what’s going on – I’m in and out of my mind
Please give me the courage to help me find – Come on yeah

Chorus:
WISHIN’ & I’M HOPIN’ - I’m wishing and I’m hoping
WISHIN’ & I’M HOPIN’ - My dreams come true
WISHIN’ & I’M HOPIN’ - I’m wishing and I’m hoping
WISHIN’ & I’M HOPIN’ – I can be with you
Verse 2:
Seems like when I want to reach out – you always seem so far away
When I’m always calling your name – you never hear the words I say
If I could only get close to you – I know it’s no crime
You can name the place – I’ll name the time – whoa yeah!

Chorus: 2X

Bridge:
Remember the times – when we woke up as kids
And would always think back at your dreams
Something that always reflected back in my mind
I always wished that dreams could come true
And still unto today – I’m still - WISHIN’ & I’M HOPIN’

LEAD GUITAR SOLO

Chorus: 2X
