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

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
