Lyrics

IF WE CAN PUT A MAN ON THE MOON

Written By: RICHARD GROSSMAN

IF WE CAN PUT A MAN ON THE MOON

VERSE: IF WE CAN PUT A MAN ON THE MOON
WHY CAN'T WE PUT OUR HEARTS TOGETHER
AN IMPOSSIBLE ENDEAVOR, SO IT SEEMS
IF WE CAN PUT A MAN ON THE MOON
WHY CAN'T WE BUILD A BRIDGE BETWEEN US
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A GENIUS, IT''S A SIMPLE THING

CHORUS: AND IF WE CAN REACH A WHOLE OTHER PLANET
CAN IT BE SO HARD TO JUST REACH OUT TO EACH OTHER
IF WE CAN PUT A MAN ON THE MOON
WHY CAN'T WE PUT A LITTLE LOVE RIGHT HERE ON EARTH

VERSE: IF WE CAN PUT A MAN ON THE MOON
WHY CAN'T WE PUT AN END TO HUNGER
WITH ALL THE SCIENTIFIC WONDERS WE PERFORM
IF WE CAN PUT A MAN ON THE MOON
WHY CAN'T WE PUT AN END TO ALL THE KILLIN'
MAKE SURE THAT ALL THE CHILDREN ARE SAFE AND WARM

CHORUS: AND IF WE CAN REACH A WHOLE OTHER PLANET
CAN IT BE SO HARD TO JUST REACH OUT TO EACH OTHER
IF WE CAN PUT A MAN ON THE MOON
WHY CAN'T WE PUT A LITTLE LOVE RIGHT HERE ON EARTH

BRIDGE: WHY, IF WE'RE SO SMART
WHY, LORD, IT BREAKS MY HEART

CHORUS: IF WE CAN PUT A MAN ON THE MOON
WHY CAN'T WE PUT A LITTLE LOVE
OH, WHY CAN'T WE PUT A LITTLE LOVE
TELL ME, WHY CAN'T WE PUT A LITTLE LOVE RIGHT HERE ON EARTH

HOW JOE GOT BELOW HIS RAISIN

Written By: RICHARD GROSSMAN

HOW JOE GOT BELOW HIS RAISIN'

VERSE JOE WAS RAISED IN HIGH SOCIETY
WITH A SILVER SPOON AND A GOLDEN PEDIGREE
BUT HE ALWAYS FELT LIKE HE DIDN'T BELONG
'TIL ONE DAY LIKE AN OLD HANK WILLIAMS SONG
SAID JOE, ME GOTTA GO DOWN TO DIXIE

CHORUS: SO HE GAVE AWAY HIS ITALIAN SUITS
BOUGHT SOME FADED JEANS AND SOME COWBOY BOOTS
AND A HALF-ACRE WITH A DOUBLE WIDE TRAILER IN MACON
TRADED IN HIS BENZ FOR A PICKUP TRUCK
FOUND A WOMAN NAMED WANDA AND A HOUND NAMED HUCK
TALK ABOUT YOUR SOUTHERN PERSUASION
THAT'S HOW JOE GOT BELOW HIS RAISIN'

VERSE NOW JOE'S NEW ENGLAND ACCENT'S KINDA CHANGED
HE DRINKS RED DOG BEER INSTEAD OF PINK CHAMPAGNE
HE DON'T MISS THAT FANCY OPERA HOUSE
HEY, THE OPRY'S FINE FOR FOLKS DOWN SOUTH
SAID JOE, ME GOTTA GO OR GO INSANE

CHORUS:

BRIDGE ALL HE EVER WANTED TO BE
WAS A REGULAR JOE LIKE YOU AND ME

CHORUS: SO HE GAVE AWAY HIS ITALIAN SUITS
BOUGHT SOME FADED JEANS AND SOME COWBOY BOOTS
AND A HALF- ACRE WITH A DOUBLE WIDE TRAILER IN MACON
TRADED IN HIS BENZ FOR A PICKUP TRUCK
FOUND A WOMAN NAMED WANDA AND A HOUND NAMED HUCK
TALK ABOUT YOUR SOUTHERN PERSUASION
THAT'S HOW JOE GOT BELOW HIS RAISIN'
THAT'S HOW JOE GOT BELOW HIS RAISIN'

A MILLION TO ONE

Written By: RICHARD GROSSMAN & SHIRLEY GROSSMAN

A MILLION TO ONE

VERSE: SHE WAS WALKIN DOWN THE STEPS, HE WAS WALKIN' DOWN THE STREET
WHAT WERE THE CHANCES THE TWO OF THEM WOULD MEET
SHE WAS RUNNIN' FOR THE BUS, HE WAS HEADIN' FOR A RUN
WHAT WERE THE CHANCES, ABOUT A MILLION TO ONE

CHORUS: ABOUT A MILLION TO ONE THAT THEY'D FALL IN LOVE
AND FIT TOGETHER LIKE A HAND IN GLOVE
ABOUT A MILLION TO ONE, THOSE WERE THE ODDS
BUT ALL IT TOOK WAS A WAVE OF THE HAND OF GOD

VERSE: HE WAS HEADIN' TO THE EAST, SHE WAS HEADIN' TO THE WEST
SHE TRIPPED ON THE SIDEWALK, YOU CAN GUESS THE REST
HE TOOK HER BY THE HAND, AND SHE WAS ON HER FEET
SO MUCH FOR THE CHANCES THAT THEY'D NEVER MEET

CHORUS:

BRIDGE: SO IF YOU WANT ROMANCE
AND YOU THINK THERE'S NO CHANCE
BETTER THINK AGAIN, DON'T YOU BE SO SURE
CAUSE STRANGE THINGS CAN HAPPEN
IT CAN FALL RIGHT IN YOUR LAP AND
LIKE IT HAPPENED TO HIM AND IT HAPPENED TO HER
IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU, EVEN THOUGH THE ODDS WERE

CHORUS: ABOUT A MILLION TO ONE THAT THEY'D FALL IN LOVE
AND FIT TOGETHER LIKE A HAND IN GLOVE
ABOUT A MILLION TO ONE THAT THEY'D MAKE IT THRU
THEIR FIRST HELLO TO I LOVE YOU
ABOUT A MILLION TO ONE THAT THEY'D WIN THAT BET
THEIR HEARTS MADE ON THE DAY THEY MET
ABOUT A MILLION TO ONE, THOSE WERE THE ODDS
BUT ALL IT TOOK WAS A WAVE OF THE HAND OF GOD
ALL IT TOOK WAS A WAVE OF THE HAND OF GOD
