Lyrics

Thunderclap Sam

Written By: Stereo Pinks

Had a couple drinks,
Made his head spin 'round,
Thunderclap Sam,
breakin' beariers down

Couple hours ago,
Reservations for two,
Now he's pitchin' a tent with a mountain view

Woke at dawn,
Tied his napsack down,
Listened to the bird and stomped the ground

Saw the city and headed West,
Wasn't good at talkin' but he'd try his best

When he got in he got funny looks,
Got secondary service from a secondary cook,

Met a girl, it was a beautiful thing
Said he fell in love but he had no ring

Sam got a job and made some dough,
Even went to school to see what he'd know,

The city in West made Sam Rich,
But the Man got him down,
So he gave 'em the slip

When Sam got back, he got bored,
So he hopped on a boat to Kuala Lumpur,

Found a dog and named him Max,
Ran back to nature and finally relaxed

Now there's the story of Thunderclap Sam,
Traveled the world and was a mighty man

He loved his dog and could get the girls,
But the mountain side, well, it was his world.

Make My Shape

Written By: Stereo Pinks

Gonna get myself together
Gonna open up my door,

Gotta get myself together,
Gotta wash my hair and clothes

What exactly do you think you're gonna say?
Once you see what I'm for

Said, "I love goodbyes and I hate hellos."
This question was for me...
to shake, shake

It makes my shape

Just tie me up to the lightning post,
and call me from the road

Tie me up to the lightning post,
My head is gonna roll

Bury up on that mountain top,
and walk down with that ghost...
Until then...

It makes my shape
It makes my shape

Mountain Song/Easy Road

Written By: Stereo Pinks

Hold my hand and keep me warm,
Through the storm, my Bonnie dear,

Easy time passing,
Though I know we wont be lasting,
May I be unclear?

My love for you is here.

Big, big mountain,
with an easy road,
Ain't no need for any games,
No need for change...

Kuala

Written By: Stereo Pinks

San Diego's bells and locks,
Ribons tied,
edge of the dock,

Hold down,

New view,
what's new?
Be real, big deal...

Hold down,

You ran
and you climbed
to new hieghts,

You ran,
and you climbed
