Lyrics

Old Legless Pete

Written By: Nicholas Pyfrom-Day

I once knew a Cajun man
In the heart of the bayou is where he lived
One day he went out hunting for gator
And he came back missing a limb

Old Legless Pete (x4)

Well Pete didnt let that hold him back
He used his hands to make up for what he lacked
He picked up his guitar and grabbed that strap
And from that day he never held back

(solo)

My friend Pete sure liked to jam
And he could play the guitar like no one can
So when he grew up to be a man
Legless Pete he started a band, singin

Old legless Pete (x4)

Come on Peter stroke your guitar
Step to the mic and let your soul pour
And when you play your greatest hits
Lets hear that guitar roar

(solo)

I said come on Peter stroke that guitar
Step to the mic and let your soul pour
And when you play your greatest hits
You'll hear the whole croad roar

Old Legless Pete (x4)

Well Petie Petie he had a plan
To live his life long and grand
And when he died a legendary man
He was tourin the land with his rock and roll band

(solo)

Philosophy

Written By: Nicholas Pyfrom-Day

my philosophy
has got to be
more than a monotany
you got to see
my hypothesis
and why i smoke this ganja weed
so constrantly
honestly
thats why i study botany
see this world is getting to me
but it hasnt gotten me
i got to lead
im never following
so all you followers
just follow me
oh so righteously
you cannot stifle me
unless you rifle me
but then i will be
a martyr for society
a starter of rioting
a rising of the people
and upheavel of the evil
system
and all those people that made it
we hate it we fight it
they like it
they hide behind it
but let me remind them
that there will come a time when
people will find themselves
living in this hell
and they'll stand up and yell and rebel
and theyll give you all hell

my philosophy
is not to believe
everything that i see or am told
i search deep for the meaning of things on my own
ive discovered ideas more precious than gold
and the deeper i search
the more that unfolds
right before me
now hear this story
of the glory you can find
by exploring your mind
but in this day and age
theres no time to relax and rewind
and examine your life
and whats wrong and whats right
so let me shed some light and insight
on this sad situation
get off your playstation
make time for rumination
because we are the future
of this twisted creation
we were all raised in
fear, fear
fear of the tyrants
dictators, the violence
can i get a moment of silence
and this is my science

my philosophy
has gotten me
to lower my viscosity
at an amazing velocity
not looking for publicity
but if possibly they spotted me
i'd use it for soliciting
my message to those listening
so listen up Ms. Thing
its not about those silly rings
or material belongings
getting all faked up
make up caked up
smudge your pretty face up
living your life so fast im like - wait up
stop a minute
slow your life down so i can hop up in it
if life's a game then you know im out to win it
but if its not as some say
then i guess that im a sinner
but i remember way back
one december day that
i lay in the grass
and i say to myself
they can kiss my ass
because its for my health
ya and it dont stop

Clementine

Written By: Nicholas Pyfrom-Day

I've got me a pretty little lady
To warm my bed
I've got me a good ol lady
Who keeps me fed
I've got me a gorgeous gal
Who holds me tight
She puts a smile on my face
And makes me feel alright

I've got me a pretty little lady
To wash me down
I've got me a good ol lady
To satisfy my soul
I've got me this one girl
Who keeps me in line
She puts a smile on my face
And makes me feel real fine

Well my pretty little lady left me
Just the other night
She didn't give me no reason
Just walked right on out
Didn't say a damn word
What's this all about
It's still a mystery to me
But I'm about to find out

I did me a little deep diggin
To see what I might find
But what I did discover
Broke this heart of mine
She left me for my brother
But I don't really mind
Because I've got me a brand new lover
It's her sister, Clementine

Daydreamer

Written By: Nicholas Pyfrom-Day

I'm a Daydreamer (x4)

Baby I dream of you
So please stay true
So I don't play the fool
Baby when I dream of you,
because

I'm a Daydreamer (x4)

(solo)

I'm a Daydreamer (x4)

You got me so hypnotized
And now I'm dreaming up my fantasy land
Ooh I'm so hypnotized
Dreaming up my fantasy land

Baby I dream of you
In my fantasy land
And you're so hypnotized
By the man that's in your eyes

(solo)

I'm a Daydreamer (x4)

Baby won't you dream of me
Because I dream of you
Come daydream with me
Imagine its just us two

Because imagination moves
Imagination moves
Imagination moves
Imagination moves my soul

I'm a Daydreamer (x4)

Freshest Stylee

Written By: Nicholas Pyfrom-Day

We've got the freshest stylee
Because we are Treehouse Junkies
So if I catch you at the party scene
Let me hear you scream Treehouse Junkies

Everybody's waiting for the beat to drop
So they can hit the dance floor and body rock
The tunes got us movin all in time
Everybody's groovin to the base line
The rhythm's real smooth with a choppy little groove
Causing everyone to make their hips move
Here comes the lead and its gathering speed
And everybody learns that its just what they need

(solo)

I may try to do miss Suzy
But I make love to my music
And I may get hard for miss Bernard
But I make love to my guitar
And I may try to lay miss Ying
But I make love to my six string
And I may like to have sex you see
But It's my music that brings me to extacy

We've got the freshest stylee
Because we are Treehouse Junkies
So if I catch you at the party scene
Let me hear you scream Treehouse Junkies

Everybody's waiting for the beat to drop
So they can hit the dance floor and body rock
The tunes got us movin all in time
Everybody's groovin to the base line
The rhythm's real smooth with a choppy little groove
Causing everyone to make their hips move
Here comes the lead and its gathering speed
And everybody learns that its just what they need

(solo)

I may try to do miss Suzy
But I make love to my music
And I may get hard for miss Bernard
But I make love to my guitar
And I may try to lay miss Ying
But I make love to my six string
And I may like to have sex you see
But It's my music that brings me to extacy
