Why Me Lord

Written By: Ross King

My Lexus just ran out of gas
My iPod needs new songs
My cell phone battery is dead
Oh why me Lord? Why you done me wrong?
My suntan salon just closed down
And my summer glow is gone
And the kid who cleans my pool just quit
Oh why me Lord? Why you done me wrong?

There’s people starving in Africa
There’s war in the Middle East
But I’m a rich dude out in suburbia
Who could use a little sympathy
Cause my grande no-whip mocha latte’s way too strong
Oh why me Lord? Why you done me wrong?

Got 150 channels on my TV, but I think I need 100 more
Got a world of entertainment on the internet
But I’m still bored, why me Lord?
My platinum credit card’s maxed out
Can’t remember what I spent it on
So I guess I’ll have to settle for the medium fries
Oh why me Lord? Why you done me wrong?

There’s homeless families in New Orleans
And soldiers dying on a foreign shore
But I’m a rich dude living in luxury who could use a little something more
Cause there’s some white trash folks in my country club
And they really don’t belong
Oh why me Lord? Why you done me wrong?

I think I’ll write a letter to my congressman
Maybe send him a tape of this song
He’s probably in his big old mansion right now
Saying why me Lord? Why you done me wrong?

Yeah I care about the people in Africa, and I’m praying for the Middle East
But I’m a rich dude out in suburbia who could use a little sympathy
Don’t forget that my grande no-whip mocha latte’s way too strong
Oh why me Lord? Why you done me wrong?

Happy To Be Me

Happy to Be Me
Words and music by ross king ©2008 ross king

If I could be a pickle I’d be a cucumber
Cause I know I would rather not lay around in vinegar
If I could be an orange I’d be a tangerine
Cause nothing rhymes with “orange” and also tangerines are smaller
So you could probably put a tangerine into your pocket
And take it on a walk and eat it when you need refreshment
But I have never seen a pocket big enough to fit a pickle or an orange
There’s not enough storage

I don’t ever wanna be anyone else but me
No, who I am is all I’ll ever need to be
So, any color, any size
Elbows, ankles, ears and eyes
I wouldn’t change a thing cuz I am happy
Happy, happy to be me

If I could be a tiger I’d be an armadillo
Cause no one’s really scared of armadillos even though they’re tough
If I could be a snake I’d rather be a monkey
Cause monkeys can disguise themselves as humans when you dress them up
And don’t you think an armadillo and a monkey could
Band together, form a team and do the world some good
Makes you wonder if the two of them would share the same language
Hey that almost rhymes with orange!

I don’t ever wanna be anyone else but me
No, who I am is all I’ll ever need to be
So, any color, any size
Elbows, ankles, ears and eyes
I wouldn’t change a thing cuz I am happy
Happy, happy to be me

Everybody wishes they could be somebody different
But if everyone was someone else then they could never be themselves
Maybe we should all be thankful
To know that all of us are special
We’re wonderfully, perfectly created, everyone

If I could I fly around the sun I’d rather walk upon the moon
Cause you can bounce around just like you’re on a trampoline
And if I could climb a mountain, I’d rather climb a tree
Cause both are kinda high but only one can grow a tangerine
And you could probably put a tangerine into your pocket
And take an armadillo and a monkey in a rocket
And if you’re thirsty and you need some juice to get you thru the voyage
You’ll wish you had an orange

I don’t ever wanna be anyone else but me
No, who I am is all I’ll ever need to be
So, any color, any size
Elbows, ankles, ears and eyes
I wouldn’t change a thing cuz I am happy
Happy, happy to be me

If I Wasn't So cute

If I Wasn’t So Cute
words and music by ross king ©2009 ross king
If I wasn’t so cute I’d drive my mama crazy
I know she loves me
but sometimes I can be a toot
Look at my face, it’s the only thing that saves me
I’d drive her crazy if I wasn’t so cute

Sometimes I’m playing outside
And when I come back inside
I make the house all dirty
When my mom just made it clean
Sometimes I get excited
And when I’m feeling hyper
I get on her nerves and
MAKE HER WANNA SCREAM!!!
If I wasn’t so cute I’d drive my mama crazy
I know she loves me
but sometimes I can be a toot
Look at my face, it’s the only thing that saves me
I’d drive her crazy if I wasn’t so cute
Sometimes I have a hard time
Falling asleep at nap time
I know that I should rest but,
I just can’t help myself
And when I’m eating dinner
Sometimes I drop my food and
I make a big ol’ mess and
MOMMY WANTS TO YELL!!!
If I wasn’t so cute I’d drive my mama crazy
I know she loves me
but sometimes I can be a toot
Look at my face, it’s the only thing that saves me
I’d drive her crazy if I wasn’t so cute

Oh how I
wish I had a lion who nice enough to ride on
He’d only roar at people who were mean to me
And if I had a lion who was nice enough to ride on
No one would be mean to me

And if I had a lion I could ride on I would ride him
all the time to make sure he got lots of exercise
And if I had a lion I could ride on I would ride him
Every Thursday to the grocery store
And there I’d buy 5 pounds of bacon
And feed it to the lion
Cuz everyone likes bacon
and besides I’ve heard that lions aren’t that picky
so he’d probably eat whatever food I gave him
La-la-la-la-la-la Lion
Lion, won’t you be my friend?
La-la-la-la-la-la lion
I wish I had a lion I could ride on
Oh how I
wish I had a monkey that knew how to ride a donkey
I’d teach them both karate cuz you never know
And if my monkey and my donkey both had black belts in karate
no one would be mean to me

And if I had a monkey that knew how to ride a donkey
I’d warn them not to roundhouse kick my lion friend
And if I had a monkey on a donkey they’d go with me
and my lion to the grocery store

And there we’d buy, 22 bananas
And the monkey would eat 15 and the donkey would eat 7
And the lion, he would not get any, but don’t worry
He would still be full from all that bacon he had earlier
Muh-muh-muh-muh-muh-muh-muh Monkey
Monkey, won’t you be my friend
Muh-muh-muh-muh-muh-muh-muh Monkey
I wish I had a monkey on a donkey

La-la-la-la-la-la Lion
Lion, won’t you be my friend?
La-la-la-la-la-la lion
I wish I had a lion I could ride on

I wish I had a monkey on a donkey
that knew karate
then no one would be mean to me

You give me giggles, cuz you’re really funny
Sometimes I laugh til it hurts my tummy
I’m so glad that I know you
Of all the things I love, you are my favorite
so I’m trying to find a way say it
Maybe this song will show you
I love you more
than all the water in the oceans
More than all of my other emotions
More than every piece in all the puzzles
More, kinda makes me wanna snuggle
Of all the things that I adore
I love you more
I never get tired of being with you
I consider it an honor just to get to
call you my buddy, my friend
I would clean up all your dirty messes
Even when you’re stinky you’re the bestest
And that’s why I wanna say it again and again
I love you more
than all the sand in every desert
More than any ruler ever measured
More than all the stars that shine above you
And now I really wanna hug you
Of all the things that I adore
I love you…
More than I would love a mountain made of my favorite ice cream flavor
More than I would love a giant candy house in Disney Land with cartoon neighbors
More than I would love a talking dog with super powers living in my back yard
More than anything that I can think of and I think that I have thought of a whole lot so far

I love you more
than all the water in the oceans
More than all of my other emotions
More than every piece in all the puzzles
More, kinda makes me wanna snuggle
More than all the sand in every desert
More than any ruler ever measured
More than all the stars that shine above you
And now I really wanna hug you
Of all the things that I adore
I love you more
