The Invisible Hand

Written By: Jill Elswick

The Invisible Hand

There's a force of nature
Without legislature
Running wild all through the land
He's a clever fellow
Slippery as Jell-O
And He's called the Invisible Hand

Invisible Hand
Touch us with the strength to meet our needs
Invisible Hand
Let no impediment prevent our blind good deeds

Do you need a hammer
Or a power-tool sander
To build a Habitat house so grand?
No need to panic
It isn't Satanic
Just call on the Invisible Hand

Invisible Hand
Touch us with the strength to meet our needs
Invisible Hand
Let no impediment prevent our blind good deeds

The Invisible Hand was sad one day
Because nobody cared
They took for granted all His off-season vegetables

But He kept quietly to himself
When they said all He cared for was greed
Then they put on their high-tops
And drank from their teapots
And made love with instruments
Inside their camping tents
All made in China

Invisible Hand
Touch us with the strength to meet our needs
Invisible Hand
Let no impediment prevent our blind good deeds

He's the matchmaker of supply and demand
Please don't misunderstand
The Invisible Hand

Revenge on Cave Spring High

Written By: Jill Elswick

Revenge on Cave Spring High

Well my baby left me for a pole-dancing ninja
So I moved back to Roanoke, Virginia
I can't complain about the cost of living
But the job market here ain't so forgiving

I'll get, I'll get, I'll get my revenge on Cave Spring High

Had an English teacher named Mrs. Price
She was a harridan but twice as nice
Had anatomy with Dr. Dechow
She tied her hair on the side in a bow

I'll get, I'll get, I'll get my revenge on Cave Spring High

Well my best friend Pam told me on the phone
She'd rather hang out with a slut named Simone
The boy who asked me to the prom
Was trying to hide his gayness from his Mom

I'll get, I'll get, I'll get my revenge on Cave Spring High

Why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh why
Did I have to drag my ass at Cave Spring High?
While teenage hearts all went “lub-dub�
I was a slave to the Latin Club

Oh why

Well I guess there could have been better times for me
But I thought it was a sin to lose my virginity
Plus the only boys who'd have me after school
Couldn't keep their mouths wiped clean of all the drool

I'll get, I'll get, I'll get my revenge on Cave Spring High

Well I think I’ll step back from the ledge
And try to make some money to pay my mortgage
If only I could go back to the old days
When Van Halen ruled K-92's airwaves

Then I'd get, I'd get, I'd get my revenge on Cave Spring High

To all the young people in the Shenandoah Valley
Don't lolly with your gag, don't dilly with your dally
You don't need to join the trench coat mafia
To throw those mean old bad bullies off of ya

Just get, just get, just get your revenge on Cave Spring High
