Lyrics

Log Off!

“Log OFF!’ – words and music by Mark S. Ludes (MSL) © 2005
(revised lyrics in chorus..)

V.1
Don't spend much time in the school yard, don't get no exercise.
Don't play Sports like I used to, kind of took me by surprise.
You get all caught up on the Net, searchin' for this and that.
Minutes turn into hours, just what you staring at.
Chorus:
Well now you're checkin' out my website, and you say it just ain't right,
You tellin' me that it's not 'bad' enough?
You're knockin' all my graphics and tearing down my site,
Hey!! - if you don't like it - Log Off!!

V.2
You’re playin' games, buyin' music and sellin' on Ebay
You search on Google, Amazon and Yahoo every day.
Buyin’ music for your Ipod, sendin’ emails to your friends.
You’ve already forgot what it’s like to phone a friend.
Chorus:
So when you're checkin' out my website, and you say it just ain't right,
Tellin' me that it's not 'bad' enough.
You're knockin' all my ideas, and raggin’ on my site,
Hey!! - if you don't like it - Log Off!!
(1x Lead solo)
V.3
Now you've got ‘yourself’ a web-site, 'cos it seemed the thing to do.
Don't know why you really need one but, ‘hey now’, it's cool.
You can find some information on any subject that pops up.
But the tough part is to separate the facts from what's made up.

V.4
Your room’s become a dungeon that keeps you trapped inside.
Your computer is your link to the world
Meeting people, typing messages, to who you now call 'friends'?
Have to wonder about this hi-tech world,
Where does it end?

Repeat Chorus:
So when you're checkin' out my website, and you say it just ain't right,
tellin' me that it's not 'bad' enough.
You're knockin' all my ideas and raggin’ on my site,
Hey!! maybe now's the time - Log Off!

You Want love

“You Want Love”– © 2003 Mark S. Ludes (MSL)

V1:
Friends are great and friends can be loved,
But often times friends aren’t enough.
There comes the time when you really need love,
And friendship is great but it’s not enough.

Chorus::
You need love… - that gives you that feeling
You need love… - with that special touch.
You want love… - really true love
You want a love that will make you complete.

V2:
You hear friends are forever but that’s not always true
They come and they go as they please.
But we all have our friends – can’t do without.
They satisfy some of our need.

Chorus:
But it’s not love… - the kind that you need
It’s not that love… - that makes you complete
You need love… - that gives you that feeling
You want love, really true love.
Break – solo
V. (repeat verse 1)
Friends are great and friends can be loved,
But often times friends aren’t enough.
There comes the time when you really need love,
And friendship is great but it’s not enough.
Chorus::
You need love… - that gives you that feeling
You need love… - with that special touch.
You want love… - really true love
You want a love that will make you complete.

You want love….. You need love….
You Want Love…………………….

‘Smash Mouth Football’ (In Your Face) – Mark S. Ludes (MSL) (6/2006)

V.1
So you say you play football and you’ve got a good team…
C’mon and check ‘us’ out, we’ll show you what that means!
Our team can play defense - we’ll stop the run….
Don’t even think about passing it to anyone….
V.2
Say you’re big and strong and you play real smart,
Yeah, we’re all that too, but we’ve got lots of Heart!
You’ve got guys on your team who can move the ball,
Our guys on our team, won’t give you nothin’ at all.

Chorus:
We play “smash mouth football”, in your face!
We’re gonna run and pass – do whatever it takes!
Smash mouth football”, in your face!
Gonna take it to you and put you in your place!

Solo break……. (Smash Mouth Football – In Your Face -Touchdown!!!)
V.3
We’re gonna come at you with everything we‘ve got.
We’re gonna push you down the field into the parking lot!
And when we’re running that ball up and down the field,
You’re gonna ask yourself, “Hey, what’s the deal?”

V.4
Yeah we got a great coach - keeps us on our toes,
Works us really hard to teach us all he knows.
Takes more than great talent, to make a great team…
Come and watch ‘us’ play, we’ll show you what that means!

Chorus: 2 x
We play “smash mouth football”, in your face!
We’re gonna run and pass – do whatever it takes!
Smash mouth football”, in your face!
Gonna take it to you and put you in your place!
