Lyrics

Birkenstock Girl

Written By: Rob Dasaro

There's a lot of beautiful girls, walking around this world
But there's only one I know, she really runs my show
She wears a Birkenstock shoes and if she only knew
When she kicking them off of her feet, I begin to feel the beat
I sing, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Chorus:
I wanna dance, wanna dance the night away with Elizabeth

Now she's living in the city, but she comes from the country
NO matter where she is, when I'm with her it's great
She puts her head to the ground, if I'm smart I'll stick around
She'll be out dancing again, I'll be there and knowing when
I sing, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Chorus:
I wanna dance, I wanna dance the night away with Elizabeth

She knows how to party up, she also knows when to stop
I think she know everything, that why these words I say
Dancing with her is such a blast, makes me hit the grass
Moves so hard in her flower dress, look again her hair is a mess
I sing...

Dirtweed Jim

Written By: Rob Dasaro

I was around on a holiday looking out to the shore, looking for my good frieds to come by with some fun for sure. Smells were sweet making good eats, grapes and grains, and plenty of more. That's were I heard the knock, knock, knocking on my front door.

Rolled in with Sarah, Stellar, and Beaner like a gypsy aravan. I got up from my music and I let them in. I was hoping he was holding the triple kind that weekend. Tha't when I come to find out we were hanging with Dirtweed Jim.

Chorus:
Hanging with Dirtweed Jim, that's right.
Hanging with Dirtweed Jim, on a holiday.
Hanging with Dirtweed Jim, whoa yeah.
Hanging with Dirtweed Jim

We played guitars and rode real hard those days we felt like ragged weeds. We danced and played on holiday fun and merriment indeed. We all took turns with his ferns which was kind enough to give us many seeds. When it ended we all felt suspended fromtime I knew he'd be back again that's when I would come to miss my friend Dirtweed Jim. We were hanging with...

Chorus:
Hanging with Dirtweed Jim, that's right.
Hanging with Dirtweed Jim, on a holiday.
Hanging with Dirtweed Jim, whoa yeah.
Hanging with Dirtweed Jim

Back in the mountains things wre looking pretty much the same. Wehn suddlenly he appeared we had no one but ourselves to blame. He told us of you look into the eyes of the sun you will always see the flame. Could it be he would come back to us as prophet Indica James.
