Track Name: Where You Going, Where You Been?
Where You Going, Where You Been?
Music and Lyrics by Thom Carter, Copyright Self Released Records 2012.

Hey, where you going, where you been?


In the morning time,
when the rising suns by the waters edge,

In the evening time,
and the rosy sun as it goes to set.
Track Name: Pussycat
Pussy Cat.
Music and Lyrics by Thom Carter, Copyright Self Released Records 2012.

Pussy cat climbs in the old Mulberry tree,
And pussy cat sits right here upon my knee,
Pussy cat bring me a dead mouse as a gift,
Pussy cat bring me a purr when I need a lift,

Pussy cat, let me pick you right off of the floor,
And dance with you baby, like they just don’t dance no more,
Pussy cat, I know you’re sharpening up your claws,
Be kind to me baby, I don’t wanna get hurt no more.

Pussy cat lies on a coat upon the floor,
And she plays with a ribbon just like a tomboy should,
Pussy cat eyes, why do they follow me,
Then turn on a sixpence and ignore me for the rest of the week?

Pussy cat, lets take the train from here and go,
To a place that I have never been before,
Pussy cat, ride with me, any old town you know,
You don’t need to pack luggage, you got yourself a real fur coat.

Pussy cat, you are making me feel old,
You can keep up with the fashions and opinions if you want,
All the young boys are looking for a kitty like you,
They’ll be tripping up all over themselves when you come through,
They’ll be tripping up all over themselves when you come through,

Oh, pussy cat, there ain’t no others like me and you,
We’re outlaws being hounded by the rules of an ignorant fool,
Oh pussy cat please, wherever you may go,
Don’t ever stop dancing, you’re the Queen of the goddamn show,
Don’t ever stop dancing, you’re the Queen of the goddamn show.
Track Name: Everybody Loves You
Everybody Loves You.
Music and Lyrics by Thom Carter, Copyright Self Released Records 2012.

Mother, walking in the morning sun,
A little baby child of love,
Daddy waiting in the window,

Mother, oh, look at those eyes so bright,
Two proud rivers flowing deep and wide,
Two loving people make another,

Oh, Oh, Two loving people make another,
Oh, Oh, Two loving people make another.


Flower, open on my windowsill,
A pretty little daffodil,
The colour of your hair,

Flower, are all the others just like you?
Growing wild and free and crazy too?
Look at the pollen in the air,

Oh, oh, look at the pollen in the air,
Oh, oh, look at the pollen in the air.


And everybody knows its true,
Everybody loves you,
And everybody know its true,
Everybody loves.


Woman, you keep a little one inside of you,
A little glimmer of the child in you,
The way you laugh the way you play,

Woman, walking with your arm in mine,
No need to hurry, we got all the time in the world,

All the time in the world,
All the time in the world,

And everybody knows its true,
Everybody loves you,
And everybody knows its true,
Everybody loves.
Track Name: Fortune
Fortune.
Music and Lyrics by Thom Carter, Copyright Self Released Records 2012.

By the Stade I met a fisherman,
With his beard as white as snow,
And a net in his hand with a fish that had been caught,

And he spoke to me, when he looked at the sea,
And the tide as it came in,
Watching the water carry up to him,
Watching the water carry up to him.

By the old town I walked,
As the evening sky grew ‘round,
And the songs from the taverns came into the air,

And the tables were all crowded,
With men come from the sea,
And the women-folk who made their fortune there,
And the women-folk who made their fortune there.

CH: Oh fortune, fortune, riches of change,
Bourne on the whim of what God sends,
Fortune, fortune, and the wind brings a change,
Of luck to the one who hath brought it.

So the next day they rowed,
The wind gathered in their sails,
And they left from the land that had been shelter to them,

And they passed to only they know where,
Like Dante and his Beatrice,
At the place where the bridges seemed to disappear,

CH

In a dream I had before I had the knowledge of my dreaming,
A bird that was wrapped in silver sang to me,
That I would have my freedom,
Only if I gave my golden cape to the beggar with my name,
My golden cape to the beggar with my name,

CH
Track Name: Little Bird
Little Bird.
Music and Lyrics by Thom Carter, Copyright Self Released Records 2012.

Little bird, when you sing,
I feel as happy as can be,
Little bird, up in the tree,
I hear you’re singing just for me,

Little baby, don’t you cry,
Flap your wings and take the sky,
Mammas gonna bake you a big warm pie,
And everything will be all right,
Yeah, everything will be all right,

Golden buttercup in the field,
All the butterflies dance for him,
Till the moon shines on their heels,
And they flutter on their way again,
And they flutter on their way again.

***

Oh, in the summer time,
You look so good,
You dance so fine,

Oh, in the summer time,
My love will bring you home.
***

Sugar, sugar, strawberries,
A little honey, a lot of cream,
That’s the way I’d like everything,
And tonight that’s how its gonna be,

You tie a ribbon in your hair,
I’ll wear my waistcoat and my hat,
We’ll look just like that happy pair,
That you see on the cover of a record,
That you see on the cover of a record.

***

Little bird, when you sing,
You make me happy as can be,
Little bird, Oh you’ll be Queen,
And I shall be the King,


Oh, in the summer time,
You look so good,
You dance so fine,

Oh, in the summer time,
Your love will bring you home,
Your love will bring you home.
