Lyrics

Whiskey & Duct Tape

Written By: Sean Wiggins

I’ve got whiskey and duct tape
a little elmers glue
I got a six pack some oreos
A snickers bar or 2
I’ve got net flix for late nights
Any old thing will do
Putting myself together as I’m getting over you

I found a letter taped to my front door
Said I wouldn’t be seeing you no more
Well I gave a shrug, ripped it up
Stuck it in my coffee cup
Grabbed a beer and sat down on the porch

Well this ain’t the first bet it won’t be the last
But I’ve sure got the cure to fix it up real fast

I’ve got whiskey and duct tape
a little elmers glue
I got a six pack some oreos
A snickers bar or 2
I’ve got net flix for late nights
Any old thing will do
Putting myself together as I’m getting over you

Should have seen it coming for a long long while
Can’t remember when I’d seen you smile
Thought the years and all the tears
Would have made it all come clear
But seems I haven’t learned a gosh darn thing my dear

I’ve got whiskey and duct tape
a little elmers glue
I got a six pack some oreos
A snickers bar or 2
I’ve got net flix for late nights
Any old thing will do
Putting myself together as I’m getting over you

Precious

Written By: Lyrics Sean Wiggins & Music Paul Houston

Silver the ring you wear
Golden the color of your hair

Bright loving eyes
Warmth of your touch
Oh how I wish
I didn’t need you so much

You’re precious, beautiful
But breakable – you’re woman
Precious – just like a child
You’re human – you are

Words can be harmful but true
Meanings sadly more than a few

Voice like a blanket
Wraps you inside
Begs you believe
As you’re caught by the tide

You’re precious, beautiful
but breakable you’re woman
Precious – just like a child
You’re human – you are

Soft so sweet
Till you cross her
Anger a tempest
she’s gone

You’re precious, beautiful
but breakable you’re woman
Precious – just like a child
You’re human – you are

Love is a gift
You hold in your grasp
Free you will give
But don’t dare to ask

You’re precious, beautiful
but breakable you’re woman -Precious – just like a child - You’re human – you are

Must Love Dogs

Written By: Sean Wiggins

You must love dogs
& kinda like the beatles
have taste for braving the unknown
and walking in the rain

And it would be so very nice
If you also kinda liked
cheese and crackers, brussel sprouts
and fine champagne

if you think camping means a room at the plaza
and dining could be brie and wine in bed

Pencil me in if you'd like to take a chance
cuzz this could be a fine romance

You have to like to laugh at all
the crazy messed up we call
the 21rst century
here on planet earth

And tofu's swell
but I still have
to have a burger shake and fries
for all that's worth

And it would be nice if we could watch a woody allen movie
and not judge his moral character

Well pencil me in if you'd like to take a chance
cuzz this could be a fine romance

i'm not lookin for a rhodes scholar
don't have to have much more than a dollar
a sense of humor even at the very worst time
and a smile that says I can't believe you're mine

So take my hand
And take my heart
it could be fantastic
a living work of art

there's no papers
here to sign
absolutely no dotted line
we just have to start

our friends might be skeptical, thinking we’re insane
Or maybe just another passing phase

I'm not frightened if you’d like to take a chance
cuzz this could be a fine romance
