Lyrics

Ben

Written By: Seven Summits

Ben

Ben, can you bring the gin
(or) else I wont let you in, Ben
I mean it, I mean it Ben.

Things aren’t what they used to be,
We’re out on a limb baby, yeah
Keep swinging, keep swinging Ben.

Come over to mine after the show,
We’ll drink a bottle of wine on the patio,
I don’t remember saying you could smoke though, Ben.

Ben, how long has it been,
I hear you’re gonna be a daddy. A daddy Ben.
Things aren’t what they used to be,
We’re out on a limb baby,
Keep swinging, keep swinging Ben.

What's With All The Lights

Written By: Seven Summits

What’s with all the lights,
They’re oppressing me,
What’s with all this running around,
What’s with all this running around?

Don’t turn on the light,
When I’ve got my curtains drawn tight,
I don’t want to know what’s outside,
I don’t want to see what’s outside.

Please let me sleep on,
I just want to lie here and watch TV,
Close the door behind you please.

What’s with all the lights,
I had one too many last night,
What’s with all this running around,
Tell me what the fuss is about.

Play Dominoes

Written By: Seven Summits

A familiar word a familiar phrase,
Yeah you win some you lose some,
Guess you wanted more from me,

Play dominoes, double or quits

How much monkey DNA,
Is there running through your veins,
In the case of one or two I’d say.

All that I wanted to say,
Is that you’ll never stop me.
