I found a box of beer in the snow It wasn’t all empties and it wasn’t all froze hallelujah I found a box of beer in the snow we met at the arena on a friday night she wore her mitts and scarf and toque just right she made me maple syrup pancakes on monday mornings we we’re talking about a wedding i was shopping for rings. we we’re drinking beers and playing hockey on tv when we got in a fight about don cherry if the river was whiskey and i was a duck i’d sink to the bottom like an old hockey puck this snow bank is cold guess i’ll try to stand up we could drink these together or finally break up i found a box of beer in the snow guess i’ll drink until its empty or my hearts less broke

Grapefruit 02:27
Grapefruit The morning is such a rough time I peel a grapefruit I taste the sunshine Grapefruit, such a great fruit help me start my day grapefruit i’ve been told grapefruits the fruit for those getting old but the elderly must be wiser than me look at all the days they’ve seen grapefruit such a great fruit help me see old age fruit some say bitter I say divine the clergy man he eats grapefruit all the time and he talks to the wholiest of holies. So grapefruit such a great fruit give me strength to pray to Jesus fruit I try to eat one every other day but there so unsustainable they come from so far away at least two thousand miles they’ve seen so grapefruit such a great fruit make me wanna pack up and move away fruit The morning is such a rough time I peel a grapefruit I taste the sunshine

Don’t take yourself too seriously F C Don’t take yourself too seriously G If you get anxious or an ego Am Just listen to the beatles F D G And let it be! C If you believe that life is precious G And the ground that we walk sacred Am Let your teen angst go F And rid yourself of hatred C G C And pray for peace Chorus When you read that men and women We’re all created equal Try to treat them so And pray for peace Chorus Em Am If all the folks around you say F C Hippie get a grip Em Am Don’t lose your cool my friend F c But don’t just bite your lip Say *chorus F G C Just let it be Musical break C F C/C G C /C F C/ C G C

Singing (don’t pay the bills) On the day I was born verse D A G D The doctor spank’d my bottom chorus G D A D And I started to sing Oooiooh. Waaaaaahaha Dream’d my name in lights But singing don’t pay the bills no more And singing never paid the bills before I can’t find no job So I can’t afford no beer And I love beer Beer keeps me drunk And drunks as good as happy But I’d rather be singing But singing don’t pay the bills no more And singing never paid the bills before To just scrape by I don’t see the point Working nine to five I’d rather be sober Picking my banjo And feeling so alive
