Biography

How did a song-writing wilderness guide, a tuba playing bassist/ small “i” industrialist, and a classically trained pianist turned percussionist end up playing and singing together in the same trio let alone the same room?!

Hey! Welcome to Canada!!

Take powerful, witty, original tunes! with flavours of rock, pop, country, and world-beat folk, wrapped in strong vocals/ harmonies, and served up with a cool rythmic groove ..and you have THE PUCKS!

Lyrics

Intoxicated

Written By: Murray Gable

INTOXICATED Murray Gable

I WALK A STRAIGHT LINE / STRAIGHT AS I CAN
I STAY THE COURSE / I WORK THE PLAN
WHEN MY HEART POUNDS / I CLOSE MY EYES
AND JUST PRETEND / IT’S NOT THAT BAD

SOMETIMES IT FEELS LIKE A DRUG
I CAN NEVER GET ENOUGH

I’M INTOXICATED
I’M INTOXICATED
I’M INTOXICATED
BY YOU

I TELL MYSELF / I’VE HAD ENOUGH
YOUR JUST A FRIEND / IT’S JUST A CRUSH
THEN I WONDER / WHY I CAN’T FORGET
THE WAY YOU LOOKED/ WHEN WE’VE TOUCHED

I DON’T WANT TO BE IN LOVE
I THINK I’VE HAD ENOUGH

I’M JUST INTOXICATED
I’M INTOXICATED
I’M INTOXICATED
BY YOU

DO I RUN / DO I STAY
DO I DRAG IT OUT / DO I DRIVE AWAY
I DON’T KNOW

SHOULD I TELL /HOW I FEEL
SHOULD WEAR MY HEART OUT ON MY SLEEVE
OR DO I JUST LET GO
I………..
WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER

MARTHA

2 MANY CARS GOING NOWHERE FAST
OUT ON THE FREEWAY BURNING UP THE GAS
STILL BELIEVING THAT ITS GONNA LAST FOREVER

2 MANY STORMS TEARING UP THE COAST
2 MANY JUNGLES GOING UP IN SMOKE
WHAT WE NEED HERE IS A CHANGE IN THE WEATHER
***************

2 MUCH HEAT ON THE POLAR ICE
BEARS DIEING IN THE POLAR NIGHT
WHAT WOULD WE DO IF WE KNEW WE WERE ALL TOGETHER

2 MANY NETS NOT ENOUGH FISH
2 MANY CHILDREN WITH AN EMPTY DISH
WHAT WOULD WE DO IF WE KNEW IT WAS NOW OR NEVER

FOR ALL WE KNOW

THERE’LL BE NO ONE IN THE UNIVERSE
LONELY AS THE HUMAN RACE
NO ONE IN THE UNIVERSE
NO ONE IN THE UNIVERSE
LONELY AS THE HUMAN RACE
NO ONE IN THE UNIVERSE

GRINDING TIGER BONES FOR MEDICINE
TAKE THE LIFE, KEEP THE SKIN
ONCE WERE ALONE, WERE ALONE FOREVER

OUT OF TIME OUT OF TOUCH
TAKE WHAT WE WANT AND WE WANT SO MUCH
WHAT WOULD WE DO IF WE KNEW WE COULD MAKE IT BETTER
