SIX

Jason Peri - Six Short Songs In D

Happy Hour

Happy hour
I'm coming to you
Onion tower
And chocolate fondue

Happy hour
It’s time to unwind
Sweet and sour
And more delights of the kind

The drinks are half price
I think I’ll get me two or three
The shrimps are on ice
The lemon slices always are free

Happy hour
Don’t go by too fast
Give me the power
To make the time last

Happy hour
I'll likely return
To devour
All the things that I've earned

The drinks are half price
I think I’ll get me two or three
The shrimps are on ice
The lemon slices always are free

The staff are busy
Working hard to save the day
They must get dizzy
Let’s try to stay out of their way

Happy hour
Happy hour
Happy hour
Happy hour

 

 

I Must Be On The Moon

What was that song
A quaint simple tune
Can’t quite recall
I must be on the Moon

When was that day
One afternoon
So long ago
Oh I must be on the Moon

Memories will fade until you’re not sure
What was real and what is a distant blur

Where was that place
By the lagoon
So far away
I must be on the Moon

What was that show
An old style cartoon
Lost to the years
Yeah I must be on the Moon

Memories will fade until you’re not sure
What was real and what is a distant blur

Memories will fade until you’re not sure
What was real and what is a distant blur
Reminisce assuming it all was true
Go with that no matter what others knew

Who was that friend
Gone much too soon
How could that be
I must be on the Moon

 

 

Lucky Stars

Something tells me that you’re feeling wrong
Don’t wanna be here you just tagged along
You know me well enough you know what I’ll say
We can go if you don’t wanna stay

We’ve been here now for a little while
I’ve yet to see you even try to smile
You’d clearly rather be at home today
So we can go if you don’t wanna stay

But when we come the next time
We’re gonna take separate cars
And if we spend our last dime
We’ll call upon our lucky stars

They'll understand if we have to leave
We're always welcome back I do believe
I see you've had enough so why delay
We can go if you don’t wanna stay
We can go if you don’t wanna stay

But when we come the next time
We’re gonna take separate cars
And if we spend our last dime
We’ll call upon our lucky stars

Something tells me that you’re feeling good
You’re glad to be here like you thought I would
You know I’d rather be at home although
We can stay if you don’t want to go

 

 

The Storm

Time to face your only fear
Take a leap as a souvenir
Reminisce as you forge ahead
Learn one more lesson and get back to bed

The weather is changing
So try to stay warm
The clouds are arranging
You should stay clear of the storm

Work the count and watch the ball
Get up and walk or learn how to crawl
Take a guess if you just don’t know
Think and talk or put on a show

The weather is changing
So try to stay warm
The clouds are arranging
Try to stay clear of the storm

Get it moving and stand up straight
No time for questions no need for debate
See yourself in another place
Think it through or you’ll run out of space

The weather is changing
So try to stay warm
The clouds are arranging
Always stay clear of the storm

 

 

The Same Old Story

After the daytime
After the nighttime
Then there’s no more time
Nothing that you can do

After the daylight
After the moonlight
Then there's no more light
Nothing that you can do

Tell me the same old story
And let us go away
Please tell me soon before we
Find a reason to stay

After the sunshine
After the starshine
Then there’s no more shine
Nothing that you can do

Tell me the same old story
And let us go away
Please tell me soon before we
Find a reason to stay

After the daytime
After the moonlight
Then there’s no more shine
Nothing that you can do

 

 

Try To Write A Song

Try to write a song
Make it short or long
Tell us what is wrong
Sing with all your heart

Hum a melody
In the key of D
Tell us what you see
Count to four and start

When you are done you just might make them cry
Hit number one there’s no better way to fly

Play a chord or two
Make 'em sound like new
Strum until you’re through
Feel it in your soul

Take the drummer’s beat
From his hands and feet
Dancing in his seat
Watch the drumsticks roll

When you are done you just might make them cry
Hit number one there’s no better way to fly

Try to write a song
Make it short or long
Tell us what is wrong

 

 

Hey Little James

Hey little James
Here’s the world
Take your place

One day you’ll know
You are loved
Prove your case

Go out and make some good friends
And be there whenever they need
You'll see it never ends
It’s always best to do a good deed

Hey little James
Take your time
Grow up strong

One day you’ll know
You do your best
You can’t go wrong

Go out and make some good friends
And be there whenever they need
You'll see it never ends
It’s always best to do a good deed

Go out and make some good friends
Who’ll be there whenever you need
You'll see it never ends
It’s always best to do a good deed

Hey little James
Here’s the world
Take your place
