v-
You know we wait all year
For this time to come around…
Hold my hand now dear …
The plane is lifting off the ground

You now we’ll be there soon..
For our once a year honeymoon..
Where it’s just … me and you
And the perfect view…

c-
Twenty toes in the sand..
Margarita in hand
The sun rises and sets in your eyes..
I can’t help smiling
Living Jimmy Buffet style

All our cares wash away..
The steel drums play
It takes us back to where we began
I count my blessings
On …twenty toes in the sand..

v-
We’ll find the perfect spot
Just above the ocean’s tide
And if it gets too hot
We’ll take out love inside
To the ...hotel room..
For our once a year honeymoon…

And when we’re through
We’ll go back to

c-
Twenty toes in the sand..
Margarita in hand
The sun rises and sets in your eyes..
I can’t help smiling
Living Jimmy Buffet style

All our cares wash away..
The steel drums play
It takes us back to where we began
I count my blessings
On …twenty toes in the sand..

Bridge-
And when its time to leave
Don’t need no souvenir
I’ve got a postcard memory..
That says … Same time next year

c-
Twenty toes in the sand..
Margarita in hand
Sun rises and sets in your eyes..
I can’t help smiling
Living Jimmy Buffet style

All our cares wash away..
The steel drums play
It takes us back to where we began
I count my blessings
On twenty toes in the sand..

When Did Hell Freeze Over

Written By: Tom Stipe/Liz Miller

When Did Hell Freeze Over

Your sittin on my front porch I’m surprised you’ve come to call
You’re looking right at home as if you never left at all
You say that you’ve been thinking ‘bout how you did me wrong
You blame your lies on drinkin’ and sing the same old song

Well something needs to happen before you come back to me
Didn’t hear it on the radio or watch it on TV

When did hell freeze over, When Did cows start to fly
I don’t recall the Mississippi River running dry
Did the world start spinning backwards…did the stars fall from the sky
Coz that’s the only way you’re getting back into my life
Even if I could forgive you- I won’t forget
Did hell freeze over…hell no…not yet

You say you don’t believe me…that I just need time to cool
Well it took some time for me to see that I was just your fool
I got a brand new cowboy says I answer all his prayers
Hell, let him thank you for himself, he’s comin up the stairs

What part of no …don’t you get? or haven’t I been clear?
You’re miracle ain’t comin and it sure is hot out here!

When did hell freeze over, When Did cows start to fly
I don’t recall the Mississippi River running dry
Did the world start spinning backwards…did the stars fall from the sky
Coz that’s the only way you’re getting back into my life
Even if I could forgive you- I won’t forget
Did hell freeze over… hell no…not yet

Even if I could forgive you…I won’t forget
Did Hell freeze over…hell no…not yet

Varoom!

Written By: Tom stipe/Liz Miller

Varoom!

The checkered flag bar was jumpin
It was late on Saturday night
Like the back strait at Talladega
Them girls were stacked three wide
In walked a babe wearing wrap-around shades
A Junior jacket with the number eight… (alt number 88)
Her miniskirt showed off some damn fine wheels
This is how revvin’ in high gear feels...

Varoom, varoom
My heart went zoom
She got my engine runnin hot
But it's in perfect tune
I found my ride
Makin damn good time
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Varoom, varoom

The Speedway band was rockin
The dance floor traffic was tight
I caught her draft …we traded paint
I got victory lane in sight
We burned some rubber in a two -step slide
She grabbed my hand as her eyes met mine
I took the lead and held on strong
She said "Baby, what took you so long?"

Varoom, varoom
My heart went zoom
She got my engine runnin hot
But it's in perfect tune
I found my ride
Makin damn good time
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Varoom, varoom

I knew we closing in on the finish line
When she threw me the keys and said..
Baby… You drive!

Varoom, varoom
My heart went zoom
She got my engine runnin’ hot
But it's in perfect tune
I found my ride
Makin’ damn good time
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Varoom, varoom

Sometimes God says Wait

Written By: Tom Stipe/Liz Miller

Sometimes GOD Says Wait
Tom Stipe/Liz Miller

He was the pride of Riverside High
Standin at home plate with his bat held tight
He was the one that the scouts in the bleachers were comin to see
Determination filled his face
He was picturing his name in the trophy case
When the crowd fell hush as the umpire called strike three

Outside of the locker room shower
In what he thought was his darkest hour
His coach told him then and there
There’s an answer to every prayer

He said-Sometimes GOD says yes
And miracles come true
Sometimes He says no
Coz He’s got bigger plans for you
All things in due time
You might think he’s late
Coz sometimes GOD says wait
God says wait

The ole pride of riverside high
Took another team to the title last night
He was the coach of the year for the third year in a row
That winning look on each boys face
Meant more than just his name in that trophy case
The difference that he made paid him back a hundred fold

Outside that same ole locker room shower
In another thankful hour
He was reminded then and there
There’s an answer to every prayer..

Repeat chorus

It’s only looking back that lets you see
Your life is everything it was meant to be

Just Like Christmas

Just like Christmas

Its just one day…
But he ..leaves behind his business suit
Lights a fire and reads a book
Snuggled with his kids…

Its just one day…
But they…put aside that family feud..
Bow their heads in the dining room..
It’s their mama’s wish…

Can’t ruin the holidays. Wouldn’t have it any other way

If everyday was just like Christmas…
And every night a holy night…
Would we always look for good…
Would we always do what’s right
Would we finally find …
Peace on earth
If everyday was just like Christmas

Its just one day…
But they… see that man down on his luck...
Put some greenbacks in his cup…
Make a little sacrifice…

Its just one day…
But they drive down to the nursing home…
She shouldn’t have to be alone
And they don’t think twice..

And they give more than they take. … wouldn’t have it any other way

If everyday was just like Christmas…
And every night a holy night…
Would we always look for good…
Would we always do what’s right
Would we finally find …peace on earth
If everyday was just like Christmas

Bridge
When that tree is sittin on the street…
And the ornaments are packed away…
Lets pray…. the Christ of Christmas…
Stays with us… past the holidays.

Then everyday would be like Christmas…
And every night a holy night…
We would always look for good…
We would always do what’s right
We would finally find …peace on earth
Then everyday would be like Christmas

Everyday would be like Christmas…
