Track Name: The Mighty Band
THE MIGHTY BAND
APPLEBY RAM
© and ℗ 2019 Music & Lyrics by Peter Stutterheim

Verse 1:
He read it in the paper
It was on the radio
He heard it from his friends
And it was on a TV show
The mighty band is coming to town
The greatest show is going to go down
He bought his ticket in advance
He didn’t want to take a chance
The greatest show is coming to town

Verse 2:
He has almost all their albums
Except the latest one
He still has to earn some money
Before he can call it done
The mighty band is coming to town
The greatest show is going to go down
He bought his ticket in advance
He didn’t want to take a chance
The greatest show is coming to town

Verse 3:
That Tuesday night is coming
It’s only days away
The anticipation for his
Favourite band to play
The mighty band is coming to town
The greatest show is going to go down
He bought his ticket in advance
He didn’t want to take a chance
The greatest show is coming to town


Verse 4:
Then finally that night came
He got to see his band
That November night in ’69
From beginning to the end
The mighty band is coming to town
The greatest show is going to go down
He bought his ticket in advance
He didn’t want to take a chance
The greatest show is coming to town

Verse 5:
Fifty years down the line
The boy has gotten old
But he remembers that night well
And the memory is gold
The mighty band was coming to town
The greatest show was going to go down
He bought his ticket in advance
He didn’t want to take a chance
The greatest show was coming to town
The greatest show was coming to town

IT’S ROCK AND ROLL
APPLEBY RAM

Verse 1:
When I was young
I had dreams
The world lay open
Or so it seemed

Chorus:
It’s rock and roll
All the way
It’s here for all
And here to stay

Verse 2:
I got older
And I grew up
And the music
Would never stop

Chorus:
It’s rock and roll
All the way
It’s here for all
And here to stay

Verse 3:
Then I got married
And I got kids
And I would teach them
About the hits

Chorus:
It’s rock and roll
All the way
It’s here for all
And here to stay

Bridge

Verse 4:
I am old now
A little grey
But the music
Won’t go away

Chorus:
It’s rock and roll
All the way
It’s here for all
And here to stay

Verse 5:
And when I die
And I am gone
There’s rock and roll
You’ll hear my song

Chorus:
It’s rock and roll
All the way
It’s here for all
And here to stay
Track Name: The Old Man and the Sea
THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA
APPLEBY RAM
© and ℗ 2019 Music & Lyrics by Peter Stutterheim

Verse 1:
Arthritic fingers shaped like claws
Aching knees that make him pause
The old eyes, the wrinkled face
His crooked body out of place
His vision sharp despite the years
Today it isn’t death he fears
The sea the colour of his eyes
Tears are falling as he cries

Chorus:
The old man and the sea
The old man and the sea
How can he see in the future
When all he has left is the past
He’s ready to let go at last
The old man and the sea

Verse 2:
The old man walked and walked his road
A hard and heavy path he strode
The cruel sea took both his sons
But they were not the only ones
The cold grey water took his wife
And ended so her precious life
The memories are always clear
But often they will bring a tear

Mmm mmm mmm mmm
Mmm mmm mmm mmm


Verse 3:
The sea, his love, to whom he’d sing
He hates her more than anything
He slowly walks the sandy beach
His distant history out of reach
The old man’s life has passed him by
His death will come, the end is nigh
The cancer’s eating him away
But his life will be the sea’s today

Chorus:
The old man and the sea
The old man and the sea
How can he see in the future
When all he has left is the past
He’s ready to go home at last
The old man and the sea
The old man and the sea
The old man, the sea
The sea
Track Name: Rich Someday
RICH SOMEDAY
APPLEBY RAM
© and ℗ 2019 Music & Lyrics by Peter Stutterheim

Verse 1:
I want to be rich someday
Want to be a superstar
I want to be famous
Want to be like Ringo Starr
I want to be rich someday
I want to be rich someday

Verse 2:
I want to be wealthy
I want to eat caviar
Want to wipe my ass with money
Want to drive a Jaguar
I want to be rich someday
I want to be rich someday

Verse 3:
Want to win the jackpot
Want to smoke a big cigar
Want to light it with a hundred dollar bill
Want to be like Roseanne Barr
(Well, maybe not like Roseanne Barr)
I want to be rich someday

Verse 4:
Want to speak a different language
Want a different repertoire
I don’t want to say “I’ll see ya”
I want to say “au revoir”
I want to be rich someday
I want to be rich someday

Verse 5:
Want to be top musician
Want to be the best by far
Buy expensive instruments
Like a fancy bass guitar
I want to be rich someday
I want to be rich someday

Verse 6:
But more than anything else
I want something real bizarre
I want you to notice me
I want to be on your radar
I want you to notice me
I want to be on your radar

Outro:
And I want to be rich someday
I want to be rich someday
I want to be rich someday

As yesterday

And it’s today

It’s my city, it’s so pretty }
In my city } 2x

’T was yesterday

Track Name: Letter in the Mail
LETTER IN THE MAIL
APPLEBY RAM
© and ℗ 2019 Music & Lyrics by Peter Stutterheim

Verse 1:
Every morning I’m hoping for more bills to pay
But without warning there’s a letter from you
As I’m walking to the front door
I’m wishing there was more
But all there is, is that letter from you

Chorus:
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again

Verse 2:
As I get it from the mailbox, I’m asking myself
Why do you send me all these letters in the mail?
What we once had is gone
So when will you catch on?
But every day there’s a letter from you

Chorus:
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again

Bridge:
I don’t know how many more
I’ll be able to store
I’ve got letters coming out of my ears
There are letters in the front
There are letters in the back
And every day there’s the mailman at the door

Verse 3:
I’m trying to ignore it, I put it in a drawer with
All the other letters that you sent
Can’t get myself to burn ’em
Why don’t I just return ’em
Because things will never be like before

Chorus:
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
There’s a letter in the mail from you again
Track Name: What I'm Talking About
WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT
APPLEBY RAM
© and ℗ 2019 Music & Lyrics by Peter Stutterheim

Verse 1:
In the courtyard by the river
It’s cold and damp now and we shiver
Raindrops falling on the asphalt
Double-decker buses coming to a halt

Chorus:
I don’t know what I’m talking about
I don’t know what I’m talking about
Everybody’s gonna scream and shout
I don’t know what I’m talking about

Verse 2:
Emerald horseshoes in the graveyard
Everybody’s doing their part
In the morning before the sun comes up
In the corner of your eyes there’s a teardrop

Chorus:
I don’t know what I’m talking about
I don’t know what I’m talking about
Everybody’s gonna scream and shout
I don’t know what I’m talking about

Verse 3:
Better come home before the night falls
Early summer when the owl calls
Metamorphosis of a butterfly
Through an open window you can hear a baby cry

Chorus:
I don’t know what I’m talking about
I don’t know what I’m talking about
Everybody’s gonna scream and shout
I don’t know what I’m talking about

Verse 4:
This whole world does not make sense to me
But there is no place where I’d rather be
All the misery, all the beauty
This is one world, and it belongs to me

Chorus:
I don’t know what I’m talking about
I don’t know what I’m talking about
Everybody’s gonna scream and shout
I don’t know what I’m talking about
Track Name: Don't Be an Asshole
DON’T BE AN ASSHOLE
APPLEBY RAM
© and ℗ 2019 Music & Lyrics by Peter Stutterheim

Verse 1:
Don’t take up two spots parking your car
You may think you’re alone, yet here we all are

You can be direct, but you shouldn’t be rude
Just be polite, it’s not that hard to do

All people are equal, live and let live
Don’t hold a grudge, but forget and forgive

Don’t block the sidewalk, you’re not the police
A blind man may just want to go by, so please

Don’t smoke in parks when there’s kids everywhere
Go a fair distance and don’t spoil the air

Don’t use the F-word with children around
Just mind your language, it’s not a nice sound

Clean up your dog poop, I know it’s a drag
The street looks much cleaner, so just bring a bag

Chorus:
Don’t be an asshole, don’t be a jerk
But do what you can to make it all work
At home, on the street, or in school, or at work
Just don’t be an asshole and don’t be a jerk

Verse 2:
When you lead your life with the people around you
Start thinking of how you do what you do

When you’re watching a movie, turn off your phone
Others are there too, you’re not there alone

Please use your blinkers when you turn left or right
And switch on your headlights when it’s dark at night

There’s kids on the street, so don’t run a red
And don’t ignore stop signs, you may end up dead

Bullying people who are different from you
Is so not cool! What if they did that to you?

Don’t leave your shopping cart, put it away
Damaging cars is not okay

Say please and thank you, say sorry too
Good manners are easy, that’s nothing new

Chorus:
Don’t be an asshole, don’t be a jerk
But do what you can to make it all work
At home, on the street, or in school, or at work
Just don’t be an asshole and don’t be a jerk

Endverse:
And most importantly, don’t drink and drive
Be a DD and arrive alive

Chorus:
Don’t be an asshole, don’t be a jerk
But do what you can to make it all work
At home, on the street, or in school, or at work
Just don’t be an asshole and don’t be a jerk
Don’t be an asshole, don’t be a jerk
But do what you can to make it all work
At home, on the street, or in school, or at work
Just don’t be an asshole and don’t be a jerk
Track Name: Boss Boss
BOSS BOSS
APPLEBY RAM
© and ℗ 2018 Music & Lyrics by Peter Stutterheim

Verse 1:
They used to be your friend
You remember
But that came to an end
You know why
When your friends turn into bosses
You better count your losses

Chorus
They became the boss, boss
They became the boss, boss
They became the bossiest boss in all the world
They became the boss, boss

Verse 2:
Everything goes better
With a boss
You’d better go and get her
You know why
You just don’t know what to do
When your boss is not there to help you

Chorus
They became the boss, boss
They became the boss, boss
They became the bossiest boss in all the world
They became the boss, boss

Bridge:
Your supervisor
Is so much wiser
They’re so much better
Than you have ever been
’Cause they’re the boss now
They are the boss now
They are the boss and they can
Never be your friend
I see right through you
You can’t fool me

Verse 3:
You know you’re at a loss
Without your boss
Whatever would you do
No clue
Your bosses know it all
They think they know it all

Chorus
They became the boss, boss
They became the boss, boss
They became the bossiest boss in all the world
They became the boss, boss

APPLEBY RAM
© and ℗ 2019 Music & Lyrics by Peter Stutterheim

Verse 1:
And everyone’s worried
About you and him and her
Not saying it’s not important
Or it shouldn’t be done
But I’m the one dying in here, ding ding

Chorus:
My life’s not over yet
My life’s not ending
But I’m the one dying here
I feel like I’m dying every day, ding ding

I have things I want to tell you
Songs I need to sing
But you won’t let me
You deserve to live your life
But so do I, so do I, ding ding

Chorus:
My life’s not over yet
My life’s not ending
But I’m the one dying here
I feel like I’m dying every day, ding ding

Bridge:
The bells are ringing
The bells are ringing all the time, ding ding
The bells are ringing
The bells are ringing all the time, ding ding

Verse 3:
You’re so impatient
Always want to be the first
You’re so demanding
You think you’re the only one
And you don’t know it that you do, ding ding 

Chorus:
My life’s not over yet
My life’s not ending
But I’m the one dying here
I feel like I’m dying every day, ding ding
I feel like I’m dying every day, ding ding
I feel like I’m dying every day, ding ding
I feel like I’m dying every day, ding ding
Track Name: Ham and Eggs
HAM & EGGS
APPLEBY RAM
© and ℗ 2019 Music & Lyrics by Peter Stutterheim

Verse 1:
In the morning, or in the afternoon
When the sun is high, or with a full moon
I don’t want haute cuisine
Want nothing complex
All I want for a meal is ham & eggs (2x)

Chorus:
Ham & eggs is what I’m saving for
Ham & eggs is what I’m craving for
Ham & eggs is what I like the best
Ham & eggs, and you can keep the rest

Verse 2:
In a restaurant, or in a drive-thru
Don’t get me donuts, or any Irish stew
Don’t want no fancy stuff
No obscure objects
All I want for a meal is ham & eggs (2x)

Chorus:
Ham & eggs is what I’m saving for
Ham & eggs is what I’m craving for
Ham & eggs is what I like the best
Ham & eggs, and you can keep the rest

Verse 3:
For second breakfast, or elevenses
I don’t like Thai food, or any specialties
So, for my supper
And my midnight snacks
All I want for my meal is ham & eggs (2x)

Chorus:
Ham & eggs is what I’m saving for
Ham & eggs is what I’m craving for
Ham & eggs is what I like the best
Ham & eggs, and you can keep the rest
Ham & eggs is what I’m saving for
Ham & eggs is what I’m craving for
Ham & eggs is what I like the best
Ham & eggs, and you can throw away the rest
Track Name: 4:33
4:33
APPLEBY RAM
© and ℗ 2019 Music & Lyrics by Peter Stutterheim

Verse 1:
It’s a rainy day in May
Another rainy day in May
I’m not sure if you’ll be there
I never told you I was coming
And I don’t know if you even care

Verse 2:
I’ve been away for a long, long time
Disappeared for a very long time
We each went our different ways
Did things that were more important
But I long for those bygone days

Verse 3:
I heard that you moved away
I was told that you’d gone away
To BC, and then Québec
Where you settled, found your home
I moved around too, and I lost track

Verse 4:
A friend told me where you live
I hope that you will forgive
Will you and I start anew?
I’m not sure if I’ll be welcome
But it’s something that I have to do

Endverse:
I’m on the 4:33 to Montreal
The 4:33 to Montreal
But when I get to your place
I see an empty cage
The bird has flown, and you are gone
Your old piano’s still there
An empty table, broken chair
I have a feeling you’re not in Québec anymore
I have a feeling you’re not in Québec anymore
The silence is deafening
