Coconut Grove

Written By: Jonathan Perry

vs1) In the coconut grove (coconut grove)
in the summer we played just kids in the shade
the sand in our toes (sand in our toes)
the ocean all day we'd drink lemonade
yeah, the memories fade, but I wouldn't trade a second
of the days in the coconut grove
vs2)In the coconut grove (coconut grove)
the cool summer nights, the campfire light
we'd bask in the glow (bask in the glow)
and under the stars we'd travel to mars
yeah, I want to go back, I'll go anyway if you don't
I'll go back to the coconut grove
ch) take me, wake me to that day (oh I want to go)
back to where I want to stay (oh I want to go)
I want to go back, I'll go anyway if you don't
I'll go back to the coconut grove
vs)In the coconut grove (coconut grove)
we climbed in the trees and swayed in the breeze
till the coconuts rolled (coconuts rolled)
and landed below and almost hit Joe
yeah, I want to go back, I'll go anyway if you don't
I'll go back to the coconut grove
(repeat chorus 2x)
+ I want to go back, I'll go anyway if you don't
I'll go back to the coconut grove

On The Border

Written By: Jonathan Perry

The men at the border they are standing there with their guns. They are looking for me, but I am hiding in the shadow of this cactus. My marijuana & my cocaine are stuffed in my pants. I hope they do not find me. I hope they do not catch me. I hope they do not kill me.

The men at the border they are moving now with their dogs. They are coming toward me, but I am hiding & the sun is setting. Sweat drips down my back as I hold my breath. I hope they do not hear me. I hope they do not smell me. I hope they do not kill me.

Anticipation of the dream (?Porque aye pepinos curtidos en mi taco?)
visions of wonder amplified to redeem (yo no ordene un falafel)
Dashed on the boulders more intensely beneath (?Porque pusistes pepinos curtidos en un taco?) All is lost. There's nothing retrieved (?Hazme un taco sin pepinos, por favor?)

The men at the border are running. They have spotted me, but I am
fast & the night has come. I hear their shouts. I hear their shots.
They'll never catch me...alive.
