Lyrics

A Stingrays' Barb.....tribute to Steve Irwin

Written By: Bill Hobman

Jumping into dangerous waters, as easy an an Angel Fly. Wings that spread six feet across, just large enough to hold him inside. It didn't understand Steve's mission, it acted just like it should. If Steve were to choose how he'd leave this world, this maybe just how he would.
Coarse
A Stingray's barb got it good, piercing through the heart of creations love. A Stingrays' barb, doing what it would, pierced through the heart of Auzzie's land. (repeat)
From snake pits, to strange creatures, the crocodile catcher was he. Preserving for the future, holding creation up for all to see. We have so much we take it for granted, living here behind these walls. We have so much I hope were thankful, being happy spreading good around. Just like Steve Irwin, he pushed the limits, the greatest Dad in all the world.
(course then)
A stingrays barb, it broke ours too but he left this world doing what he would. A stingrays barb it broke our hearts too but he left this world doing what he loved to do!
(repeat last line)
(Phantom voice sings).... Steve Irwin, he had a mission, to be the worlds greatest Dad.

My Blues

Written By: Bill Hobman

She's downright sweet and innocent, she's got blue eyes too, and when she moves on me, like I like her to be, she chases away my blues.
A truer word has never been spoken, about this girl I love, and when I'm feeling used, like I sometimes do, she makes me feel brand new.
When the world goes wild and crazy, nothing ever stays the same, and when I reach out for you, and your reaching for me too, that chases away my blues.
Now that were both starting to get older, and our priorities are starting to change, and when we plan what we will do, wanting to do it with you, hoping our love will be straight and true.
She's downright sweet and innocent, she's got blue eyes too. and when she moves on me, like I like her to be, she chases away my blues.

A Better Day

Written By: Bill Hobman

Roll the clouds away, bring on a better day. Let the sun shine through on me and you.
May the fish in the brooks, be there for the fishermans hooks, and may the waters be clean in every forest stream. Let the birds fly high, in a clear blue sky and may the air be sweet in every country scene. Take the frowns away, let us have a better day. Let the smiles come through from me and you.

May the deer that run, be there for the hunters gun, and let animals play, in a free'er way. May the hills have trees, for the birds and bees. To hide in the shade on a summers day. There is a swamp for the goose, and the moose big hoofs. And the bear can roam there or anywhere. May the trappers line, leave every animal behind. For our children to see after you and me.

If the word of this song, will help us leave creation alone, then I'd have to say there will be a better day.
So, roll the clouds away, and bring on a better day.
Let the sun shine through on me and you. (repeat last line)

Too Much

Written By: Bill Hobman

Would it be too much to ask you to call? I sit here wondering, if you really care at all. Watching out the window, as my heart breaks, and my hope fades away. If another passes by, my mind and heart are gonna wonder why. Does she care for me, is there love somewhere for me. I really need to know it, because my feelings I can't control it. Will you be there for me, do you care for me. Your really slow to show it, and I really need to know it, do you care for me.
Tuesdays and Saturdays are the only days I'm allowed to call. And when your at work, I'm not allowed to call you there at all. I need your body, to help me through the night, and then your lovin, to tell me everything will be all right. Does she care for me, is there love there for me. I really need to know it, but my heart just can't control it, Do you care for me, is there someone there besides me? You really otta show it, because I really need to know it. Do you care for me. Does she care for me, is there hope for me. I really need to know it, cause my feelings, I can't control it. Will you be there for me. Do you care for me. Do you care for me. Do you care for me. Do you care?

Don't Want To Change

Written By: Bill Hobman

I've heard everyone is who the want to be
Now, if you want to be with me
I hope you like what you see
Because I don't want to change
Now I have a couple rules for you
There's just a few simple and true
Some simple guidlines to help you decide to keep on my good side
Because little boy that's where you want to be if you want to dance the night fantastic with me
I don't want to change, no I don't want to change
Please don't come knocking when I'm not expecting you, flowers are nice a chocolate treat or two
But stay away from my cat
or you won't step over my welcome mat.
As I said before you better like what you see because I don't change colours or climb up any trees, This is the way that I am, and the way I'm going to be.

(coarse)
I don't want to change just to see you smile
Because if I do, I would only be a liar
I don't want to change cause I found in me this fire
And if I do, I would also loose my desire
I don't want to change.

Oh, I've listen to many good stories from salesmen like you are trying to be, and yes I know that I'm pretty, but I don't want to change.
That same mistake that happened between him and me ain't gonna happen here between you and me
cause I've learned a simple lesson And I don't want to change.

(Coarse)

I Hoped things could be a bit different here, and I know you think I'm being too orrnaree
no, Idon't want to change just for you, I have to delete a bad memory or two, I don't want to change.

(Coarse)

Help! I'm Falling

Written By: Bill Hobman

Help I think I may be falling
I didn't know my heart was calling
I think I may be falling, for you...

As more time slips by
And the more I look into your eyes
It's taken a while to realize
That I think I may be falling
I didn't know my heart was calling
I think I may be falling, in love with you

Would you like to walk by my side
Share your emotions from deep inside
Start pulling down the walls where we hide
*Because I think I may be falling
I realize now my hearts been calling
I think I may be falling, in love with you.
In love with you, In love with you.
(Repeat last three lines)

Hit Delete!...spoof on Lavalife

Written By: Bill Hobman

There's a new cyberfad, a fun way to find the "love of your life."
Searching the internet on, "Don't you have a life."
Well, I started typing on my keyboard, with my hopes held way up on high.
Entered my password to read my messages hidden inside.
I'm trying to find the "love of my life", searching the columns on "How to get a life..."
(coarse)
Then I suddenly realize, it's just another looser(Goofball, Turkey) in disguise
So, hit delete and not repeat, hit delete and not repeat.
When the pressure growing higher and your soon to expire
Better hit delete, or it will repeat!

If the mans' profile reads like this ladies...I'm trying to quit smoking and my income is not declared.
I've got a few extra pounds and almost a full head of hair.
I only drink socially ....and this is the most recent photo that I have, then you...(Coarse)

Well, it's so nice to see that your picture, has some resemblance to the person standing here.
But when you described yourself as "Fit and attractive"
Is that the person that you really, just want to be?
Then you...(Coarse)

I guess it's time to take a step up, from the path I normally take.
Turn about in a new direction, maybe find one decent date.
But I'm running out of credits, and I'm running out of time.
Staying single can be lonely, growing up is just a wish of mine.

Well, let's answere this instant message, she may jump right up on line.
Then we can text message each other, privately!
Before more excuses I need to find.
Oh, look. I received another message, this time from a Model living in KAT MAN DUE!
Why don't they read my profile!
My olders brothers almost five and my younger sisters only two, Miss Kat Man Due (X2)...(Coarse)

When you hope their not a liar and you pants feel their on fire
Better hit delete or it will repeat.
I guess I'll have to change the catagory that I'm in.... to
Internet dating, non activity, nonactivity. Because I hit delete!

Please keep your smiles coming!

Running Wild

Written By: Bill Hobman

When I'm thinking crazy feelings, and I'm half out of my head over you.
Then my mind starts believing that my dreams just might come true.
And I look for something special, that for a women only a man can do. Then I find that I'm bleeding and my thoughts are running wild after you.
(Coarse)
Running wild(X4)

Then I think oh maybe baby. That all the words you said might be true.
And I go crazy thinking maybe, that my life and wife are both found in you. Then I look for something special that for a lady only a man can do. Now look behind that's where you'll find, a crazy man that wants to run wild with you!
(Coarse)

Now hold on to something sturdy. Because my heart is pumping too hard after you. Then I move closer oh hoping later that my passion will be found in you. Then I look for something special that for a lover only another can do. Then I find that I've been sweating, and my passion running wild on you.
(Coarsex2)

That Sweet Sweet Music

Written By: Bill Hobman

Rockin and a rollin, just like junior is suppose to do.
Bopping and a twisting, that's what mother used to do.
Struttin and a swinging, has fallen off to the side.
Waltzing and Jitterbugging, has crawled away and died.
(Coarse)
Just give me that sweet sweet music.
The type that makes me want to dance.
Just give me that sweet sweet music.
The type that makes me want to take a chance.
Just give that sweet sweet music.
And let them blow it out their ears.
Just give me that sweet sweet music.
I never want to forget those years!

Rocking and a rolling, and kicking off my running shoes.
Swinging and a twisting, just like Chubby Checkers used to do.
Boppin and a Bunny Hoping, in the gym those crazy times.
Laughing and a singing, hoping the band would play all night!

(Coarse then repeat)

Promiss Q itee

Written By: Bill Hobman

Why is it so damn hard, to find a really good girl.
Wondering what the secret is to find really true love.
Why is it so damn hard to find a really good girl.
Someone who can look you in the eye and say they never will.
You know their standing on every corner, showing more than I care to see.
Stuck in a never ending story, selling only promiss q itee!

(Coarse)
Promiss Q Itee, is something I don't need.
Just a promiss from my baby, sets my spirit free!
Promiss Q itee means you mean nothing to me.
But a promiss kept to the "T", reminds how love used to be.

So, why is it so damn hard, to hold onto something that lasts.
Wondering if I should even open my heart and risk another blast!
Someone who can look you in the eye and swear they never will, because...
(Coarse)

Why is it so damn hard, to find a really good girl.
Wondering what the secret is to find really true love.
Someone who takes me back to their place fro more than just a thrill. Because....
(Coarse x2)

Youngest Girl At The Party

Written By: Bill Hobman

I'd like to tell you a little story about a women I know. She tries to make a picture but never is part of the show...
She's the youngest girl at the party. Everything takes her by surprise.
She's the lonliest girl at the party. Nobody stays by her side, by her side.
She works three hours infront of a mirror. Before she goes to town each night. One inch of powder and blue around the eyes. Trying to find a beautiful women, inside.
But whatever she tries to do. The truth always comes through.
She's gonna be lonely tonight. Lonely tonight.

She tries so hard each time to be there. Getting to be more despirate each night. One chance passes by. Another rude look in her eye! And she wonders, why she's so lonely each time.
But whatever she tries to do. To Do. The truth always comes through. She's gonna be lonely tonight. Lonely tonight.

But whatever she tries to do. To do. The truth always gets through. She gonna be lonely tonight. Lonely tonight.

But whatever she tries to do. To do. The truth always gets through. She's gonna be lonely tonight. But lonely is alright! Yes lonely is alright!

Start It With You

Written By: Bill Hobman

Wouldn't it be nice to be laying down with you.
A challenge for the mind and heart
and a challenge for the will too.
Waking each day to make a better way with you.
Not knowing quite where to start
just wanting to start it with you.

Wouldn't it be nice to be laying down beside you.
Gently messaging your back and neck
and rubbing your soft shoulders too.
Tell me about your day baby, is there something more I could do for you.
Tell me is there a better way baby that my love can be shown to you?

Wouldn't it be nice to be laying down with you.
A cold glass of wine, a hot bubble bath, a sweet piece of chocolate too.
I'll wisper the love words, that you derserve to hear.
And even after we've cuddled up please talk some more in my other ear.

Wouldn't it be nice to be laying down beside you.
Thoughts of passion and paradise are created when I think of you.
Sharing how much it means to me when I look deep into your eyes.
Sharing only honest words like how for you love I would die.

(Repeat first & second verse)

Just want to start it with you! (X3)

Garment Of The KIng

Written By: Bill Hobman

She was an innocent child, born to run a little wild
An innocent child, born to run wild
This Vietnam child, running down the road while
This innocent child had her back on fire.
She used to run from those scars
Marked by the hate for all those liars
but back in 1991, she met Gods' only Son
Now she's found hope, when everything was caving in
Now she's found joy
Because she grasped the Garment Of The King
Yes she found joy, where she also found hope
She found love, when she grasped the Garment Of The King
This Vietnam women, has found the better way
No longer is she running, burning down life's highway
Because she has found joy, now she has found hope
She has found healing when she grasped the Garment Of The King
She didn't let the bombs make her bitter
She found the one who makes it better
She found peace, when she found Jesus' hem (Christ)
Please reach up and touch the Garment Of The King
Feel your healing happen from deep within
Reach up and grasp, the Garment Of The King
The Garment of the King, He'll heal you from within
Yes, reach up and grasp, the Garment Of The King
When your running without any cloths...
reach up for the Garments Of The King!

The Garments Of The King..He'll heal you from within
Reach up and grasp, the Garment Of The KING (X2)

Please Draw Near

Written By: Bill Hobman

When I get real lonely and I haven't got a friend
I Just quietly look deep inside, to find that One on whom I can always depend
But this time you really hurt me
Broken every part of my emotional frame
And now I don't know what to do, cause I am stuck on you
And you know you really love me
But that word is all I've gotten from you
And if you want me around make I LOVE YOU more than just a sound.

I'm holding on to my last breath
And I am walking the thinest line
Hoping that one day, I'd be yours and you'd be mine
Now I've been trying to pass this test
Working on everything that's inside of my mind
But maybe I'm trying too hard, or maybe the price is too high
Cause I've given my last two cents
Hoping you'd choose to be by my side
And now the time has come, for you to decide.

(REPEAT 2nd verse with new last three lines)

Cause this time I've given all I got
Hoping you decide to love me a lot
And now the time is here, for you
to DRAW NEAR,

You're Surreal

Written By: Bill Hobman

Is this for real, these feelings that I have for you
And your so real, but you won't let me get close to you
So is it true? Can my message get through to you
That, you're surreal!

Can you take a love, held out with this open hand
Or could you even talk, and be honest with this single man
But I guess it's true, many men have really hurt you
But you're surreal!

You know I've walked this earth, holding my little childs hand
And I found that it's true
Life slips as fast as falling sand
But it seams so easy for you
to never give the best that you can
Oh, I wish it were true, can my love break through to you?
Because you're so real.

Don't you think that it's time
To come out fronm behind your mask
To open your heart and your life and stop living in a painful past
Please, let my wish come true
And let this man get close to you
Oh, let it be true, let my love get through to you (x3)
You're SURREAL.

Merry Merry Kissmas!

Sweet Sue

Written By: Garry Wayne & Bill Hobman

Sweet Sue what am I gonna do
Oh sweet Sue I'm so in love with you
Your love has got me flying high
like an eagle in the sky

* Sweet Sue, your eyes sparkle and shine
and your kiss, sends chills up and down my spine
your smile sets my heart all a glow
it's like a burning fire!

Way down deep in my soul I'm all cuddly and warm
I haven't felt so much love since the day I was born
with your giggle and your wiggle
(come on baby) no need to be alone

sweet Sue what am I gonna do
oh sweet Sue, I want to dance with you
your love has me fly in the sky like an aeroplane, ya!
(repeat from *)

Higher Point of View

Written By: Bill Hobman

Let Him Change your shack into a palace
When He turns around your point of view
To one that's good pleasing and perfect
To one that is always thankfull.....

Mourn for your condition honestly
The secret is to always be humble
Not the humility for all to see
But one that is quiet and truly gratefull

(COARSE)
Blessed are the poor in spirit
Blessed are those that mourn for more of me
These are the words of the savior
Can you leave it behind and follow me?

He can change your pain into a passion
You will see how rich you are in your poverty
Blessed are the pure in heart and those who show mercy
Can you leave it behind and follow me?

(COARSE)

Live every day with a sense of purpose
When He turns around your point of view
Rejoice and be glad for your reward in heaven
Will be great because you trusted in Him

(COARSE Then)

These are the words of our precious savior
Can we deny ourselves to set ourselves free
These are the words of our precious savior
Can we deny ourselves and follow thee?

Voice Of The People

Written By: Bill Hobman

Listen to the voice of the people in regards to all that they say to you.
Now they have not rejected you as being King over them but they have certainly rejected me.

After all these great deeds that I have done since I brought them out of Egypt to freedom. Even to this day it is me they have rejected and the god of greed has hurt everyone. Yes that god of greed has hurt everyone.

Well the saddest part in all the Bible is not the day he had to sacrifice his son. When marthas' brother died and Jesus wept by her side, nor the flood the came and drowned everyone. No the saddest day in recorded his- story was the day he had to openly confess. *That they had not rejected thee they have rejected me as being king and having a life that is blessed.
(Repeat from *)

Listen to the voice of the people in regards to all that they say to you. For they have not rejected you as being king over them but they have certainly rejected me.

Now can we just take a moment of time and think about out lives how we've been blessed. Think of the one beside you and ask what can you do to help that one find happiness. *He said, bring me all your cares and your burdens, in me you can truly find rest. And the one that's truly thankful will always have a tankful and the king of kings will call you blessed. Yes the king of kings will call you blessed.
(Repeat *)
Be Blessed!

Waltz with you (Light in my arms)

Written By: Bill Hobman

I don't like to be without you, I just want to hold you
and waltz with you light in my arms.
Your eyes make me want you your smile makes me adore you, and wnat to waltz till dawn in your arms
The conversation, basic step, senior walk and twinkle step,
I feel (love) you waltzing light in my arms.
We'll do the rise and fall, we'll be the best of them all
Waltzing with you being light in my arms.

One then two, two then three, there nothing better when you waltz (being) with me, floating softly, like were dancing on the moon. We'll do the rise and fall, we'll be the best best of them all waltzing with you being light in my arms.
Dancing gently being light in our arms
Waltzing with you, light in my arms!

One Desire at a Time

Written By: Bill Hobman

I want to be there for you, One desire at a time
we'll throw all the clocks away,
then time won't matter to you and I
Give me your wildest dream, and I'll try to make it mine
I want to be there for you, be there for you
One desire at a time.

When everone else is dancing all alone
I'll hold you close to my side and make you my very own
Holding you closer, until I feel your heart right inside mine
And feel that passion flow from my head right down to my toes.....

Yes, I see a Hollywood Princess sparkle in your eyes
and I want to be, want to be, forever by your side
Your night in shinning armour, riding off towards the sun
I want to be there for you, be there for you
one desire at a time.

yes, I want to deal with you one desire at a time
and let my dreams of you play out together in my mind
Pulling you closer, until your hearts inside of mine
I want to be there for you, be there for you
One desire at a time.

Oh, yes I see a Hollwoood Princess sparkle in your eye
and I want to be, want to be forever by your side
Your knight in shinning armour, riding off into the sun
I want to be there for you, be there for you
One desire at a time (x2)
