Track Name: The News
There's this house that sits so comfortably
and inside it is a woman who obsesses me

Babe I'm the man who will work for you
work for you
nurture the garden that you swim through
every time I

Seen her before in a dress designed to knock you out
I just want her to know what I be all about, yeah!

Babe I'm the man who will work for you
Work for you
Nurture the garden that you swim through
Every time that I
Anytime or place that you choose
Darling please won't you just bring me the news?

She took the east by tropical storm
Swept into the west to keep it nice and warm
Now she got better
Seems a bit wetter

Babe I'm the man who will work for you
Work for you
nurture the garden that you swim through
Every time that I
Anytime or place that you choose
Darling please won't you just bring me the news?
Track Name: Give
Quite right!
I kicked it with the taker
took his photograph
good people
who don't like to share
Kicked it with the giver
and made music all night
good people
they help me to see the light

When you give it up
Sets you free
Won't you give it up
Please?

I kicked it with the fat cat
took a luxury ride
A fine fella, I tell ya
too bad he's empty inside
Kicked it with the campesino
the fields don't pick themselves man
fine fellas I tell ya
doing the best that they can right now

Won't you give it up
Sets you free
Will you give it up
Please?

Won't you give it up
Sets you free
Will you give it up
please?
Track Name: Sera Feliz
En una pueblita pequena se llama Mancha
una pareja esta cayendo
Mira el sol y nubla
pero no enocontrarán
no encontrarán el amor nada más

Ella será, será feliz
Ella será, será feliz

El tiene mas que una mujer
en la pueblita
y su esposa no la gusta esa
ella quiere algo más
un hombre que tiene la sensibilidad

Ella será, será feliz
Ella será, será feliz

En la noche hay solo silencio
ningunos coyotes crian
Ella camina por los dedos a su lado
llevando un cuchillo escribo
con su nombre

Maribel, Maribel, lo mataste!

Ella será, será feliz
Ella será, será feliz
Track Name: Sasquatch
Never could let it go and I still can't
feels OK
Then I had a dream made me realize
why I'm leaving this day
To all the crazies who might give me trouble 'bout it
see if I care
All I'm gonna need from my mission is a
little lock of your hair

You been out there a long, long time
this I know
and your sepia ten tone overcoat
could be white as snow
Every mountain I go up
valley goes down
Yes you you gonna know when you see that figure
walking the outside of town

I'm looking for you
She's looking for something new
If you want me let it show
Or sasquatch me go

I be out in the woods with binoculars
from now on
Gonna dig to the bottom of the mystery until it's
completely gone
If you ever the itch to find the one you seek
just you try
well you gonna when you've found him
by the look in my eye

I'm looking for you
She's looking for something new
If you want me let it show
Or sasquatch me go

Sasquatch me go
Track Name: Smokey
Me ayudas y te ayudo
Prufundo en el bosque oscuro
La chispa sopla lentamente en el viento.
Vamos muchachos para ver el fuego.

Excava excava excava
Excava!

Me llamo fuego y bueno vivo
Nunca me escucha, asi siento viejo
Duermo por todo el invierno
Siempre la vida del oso.

Pues hay nadie que sabe la verdad
Pensamos que somos mejores
Ay por qué?
Viva la cambia.

Me hace una figura
de arena y gasolina
Debe prenderle fuego a ella, y mira
Destruido por la caliente y la fría.

Excava, excava, excava
Excava!

Pues hay nadie que sabe la verdad
Pensamos que somos mejores
Ay por qué?
Viva la cambia.
Track Name: Divine Bovine
What you see is what you gonna get
You ain't seen a damn thing yet
What you get is what you gonna see
Scoot a little bit closer to me

Are you down with the dog?
A divine bovine?
Well Hail Mary
cuz I don't need no missionary to tell me

Book in hand you come to my door
Telling me something about The Lord
Come on in and where have you been?
I need a lesson in original sin from ya

Are you down with the dog?
A divine bovine?
Well Hail Mary
cuz I don't need no missionary to tell me

Work the land the holiest sod
I consider you an act of God
Look inside you got to understand
I do believe there's a master plan
and you're in it baby

Are you down with the dog?
A divine bovine?
Well Hail Mary
cuz I don't need no missionary at all
Track Name: Revival
Quaker man with colors
on his hat and his trousers
lugs the wagon home and he
sets his mind to roaming
When he hears the rollicking
Fearless hoots and hollering
what had gripped his soul was leaving

With the revival
With the revival
With the revival
With the revival

His wife plain and personal
writes in a leatherback journal
she's been building up the family
at the expense of her sanity
when her thoughts they were jolted
after the children she bolted
what had gripped her souls it was leaving

With the revival
With the revival
With the revival
With the revival

Some old scalawag
left his carpetbag and he
wandered up the way to where he
thought it was a beautiful day
people shouting held their hands high
does it please the big blue sky
what had gripped their souls was leaving

With the revival
With the revival
With the revival
With the revival
