Lyrics

100 flowers

Written By: mark rivers

100 flowers could'nt change your mind/Im out on a limb/in a world unkind/foolin'& fussin' with your fickle heart/u bang on your drum/now that were apart/sha na na na na/100 flowers could'nt make u smile/letters of love all just wasted time/I been drinkin'& thinkin' 4 most of the night/still 100 flowers/could'nt make it right/chorus/bridge/u are here//within each tear/u are here/in my heart/100 flowers could'nt change your mind/letters of love/all just wasted time/solutions suggested/solutions denied/100 flowers/could'nt make u mine/chorus....

black sedan

Written By: mark rivers

IN the middle of the traffic in the middle of the city/im workin up a number/feelin hot & gritty/sittin' in the back takin in a magazine/im stranded here in this limousine/got my guitar in it's slick black case/i've got my darlin 2 slow down my pace/workin on a number with the rest of the band/just takin a ride in the back of a black sedan/
in the back of a black sedan
livin life as fast as i can
in the back of a black sedan/
recored company just gave us a cash advance/gonna get me some shades and a pair of leather pants/its going so fast i don't know when it will stop/life is so easy when your records hot/
chorus
somebodys yellin think i just heard a scream/yea this all seems like a crazy crazy dream/it's goin so fast wonderin when it will stop/yea life is so easy when your record yea your record is hot
chorus
