In Our House

Written By: Richard Moloney

In our house on Christmas Day
Things begin in the usual way
In our house on Christmas Day
A steaming breakfast brought us on a tray

Mama's waiting by the edge of the bed
Thoughts of the day ahead fill her mind with dread
Take a little love you know it'll do you good
How come this time of year doesn't feel as it should?

In our house on Christmas Day
Home for coffee precious gifts tenderly given away

Mama's waiting by the latched front door
Her bright eyed boy wont ramble in any more
In the car some idle chat
The cake looks nice and that is that

In our house on Christmas Day
A roaring fire to chase the ghosts away
In our house on Christmas Day
Grand children wonder at their presents special display

Mams's waiting by the cold grey stone
I'm just here love and we're both alone
Tears wash over words of gold
Love has no dominion over the brave and the bold

In our house on Christmas Day
Dad says the wine is the prize but the gift is the boquet
In our house on Christmas Day
Plum pud on the couch its a beautiful life is the matinee

Mama's waiting by the telephone
friends are in and photographs are shown
singing songs of love and loss along the way
Dad's had a little too much, Mom calls it a day

In our house on Christmas Day
Glowing embers dying back to grey
In our house on Christmas Day
Merry friends gingerly melt away

Mama's waiting by the edge of the bed
Pools of pain are swirling about her head
Come in love you know you'll catch the cold
How can it be so hard growing old

HOW RIGHT I AM

Written By: RICHARD MOLONEY

AFTER ITS ME NOT YOU
AND SINCERITY HAS LEFT ME
SO SAD AND OH SO BLUE
MY COSMO GIRLS INSIST
WE KNOW WHAT WE MUST DO
PAINT THE TOWN WITH A BRAND NEW TATTOO
I FALL FOR YOU TO SOON
ACCROSS A CROWDED ROOM
DIDNT KNOW WHAT I HAD FOUND
OH GOD IM ON THE REBOUND
CHORUS.
YOU ALWAYS CALL JUST TO SAY HEY
HOW ARE YOU AND HOW WAS YOUR DAY
AS MY GUILTY PLEASURE INCREASES
BETWEEN THE HEART AND BEAT
I FALL TO PIECES I FALL TO PIECES
HOW RIGHT I AM
VERSE.
LAUGHTER US HENS ARE ON THE MOVE
HITTING THE PINK SALOON
AND DIGGING OUR OWN SILLY GROOVE
OVER IN THE CORNER THAT BOY HE STEELS A KISS
FROM TINKER TAILOR SOILDER SAILOR
MY LOVE LIFE JUST CAN GO ON LIKE THIS
I CRASH THROUGH THE DOOR
MY HEARTH IS ON THE ALLY FLOOR
THE SISTERS KICK OFF THICK AND BLUE
AND JOSTLE IN THE TAXI CUE
CHOROUS.......
LATER WALKING HOME ALONE
DOGGING THE QUESTION
AND GLANCING AT MY PHONE
ON MY STEP THERE WITH THOSES WET EYES
SO SAD AND BLUE
I COULDNT STOP MY SELF FROM SAYING
ITS DEFINITLY ME NOT YOU
YOU SAY YOU LOOK BOTH WAYS
BUT IN THE HAZE
WHERE YOUR HEARTH IS PUT
YOUR LOVE STAYS
CHORUS............
FIN.LATER LATER
