Lyrics

Here I go.
Where, you know.
As you release me I’ve found my flow.

Here I am.
Free again.
Spinning around and around again.

Ride the air.
Take me there.
And I am spinning without a care.

And I know,
In my soul.
That I am flying and free

When I’m spinning round and round.
Falling slowly  to the ground.
If I’m lucky I’ve found your hand.
And you wind me up and set me free again.

Into the,
Air with me.
So I can be what I’m meant to be.

Then I’ll spin.
Round again.
As I am dancing my dance and then.

Times I’m caught.
Times I’m not.
But you return and free what you sought.

Send me spinning round and round.
Falling slowly to the ground.
If I’m lucky I’ve found your hand.
And you wind me up and set me free again.

Times like these.
They’re for me.
You and I share this time, share this breeze.

Like to throw?
Wind will blow.
Shape is my lift, is my life you know.

Ride the wind.
All I can.
Thankful for the flow I’ve found in your hand.

When I’m spinning round and round.
Falling slowly to the ground.
If I’m lucky I’ve found your hand.
And you wind me up and set me free again.

Lyrics

On the run from the start; from the gate now I depart.
Head on out to this place; heavy forces my life’s race.
On the left, on the right, up above, encompassing sight.
As we flow one goal in mind; leave him to her to find.

I have got to find a way.
Make this not my only day.
I have got to carry on.
I have got to swim along.

Making way, keeping pace; find some way to win this race.
If I win, the greatest goal; make a self, complete a soul.

So I’m here I’ve found this place; swim around and find a space.
No I’m not the first one here; swim around, my senses steer.
I see a spot where others missed; a weakness where I’ll seek my bliss.

I have got to find a way.
Make this not my only day.
I have got to carry on.
I have got to swim along.

I have got to find a way.
Make this not my only day.
I have got to carry on.
I have got to swim along.

Lyrics

 Stuck inside my booth, I sometimes find much spare time to think about it.

So many say so many things; I sincerely and seriously got to doubt it.

As cars go by and some say “hi,” I hope you understand why I’ve got to shout it.

 

I’ve got the toll booth blues, baby.

And I don’t know what I’m gonna do.

I’ve got the toll booth blues, baby.

Can you hear me cause I’m talking to you.

 

A car pulls in; a song fades in. I move into the groove just for the moment.

The toll is paid and change is made; the song is gone, they roll on. Sucks now don’t it?

Then my ears, they switch their gears as a customer comes crawling right behind it.

 

I’ve got the toll booth blues, baby.

And I don’t know what I’m gonna do.

I’ve got the toll booth blues, baby.

Can you hear me cause I’m talking to you.

 

Coming and going, I can’t hear a song.

Coming and going, I can’t go along.

Coming and going, some times I wish I would.

Coming and going, Do you think I could?

 

The hardest time, if you don’t mind, I think I’d like to open up and share with.

She moved in, grooving; wild eyes, wide smile saying come with.

Hearts stopped, looks locked; I think I found the girl to see the world with.

 

There comes a beep, this guy in a Jeep. Got somewhere to go and in a hurry.

She waved goodbye. I so want to try to say in someway something, but it’s blurry.

She drove away and to this day, I watch and wait for that woman from Missouri.

 

I’ve got the toll booth blues, baby.

And I don’t know what I’m gonna do.

I’ve got the toll booth blues, baby.

Can you hear me cause I’m talking to you.

Stuck inside my booth, I sometimes find much spare time to think about it.

So many say so many things; I sincerely and seriously got to doubt it.

As cars go by and some say “hi,” I hope you understand why I’ve got to shout it.


I’ve got the toll booth blues, baby.

And I don’t know what I’m gonna do.

I’ve got the toll booth blues, baby.

Can you hear me cause I’m talking to you.


A car pulls in; a song fades in. I move into the groove just for the moment.

The toll is paid and change is made; the song is gone, they roll on. Sucks now don’t it?

I’ve got the toll booth blues, baby.

And I don’t know what I’m gonna do.

I’ve got the toll booth blues, baby.

Can you hear me cause I’m talking to you.


Coming and going, I can’t hear a song.

Coming and going, I can’t go along.

Coming and going, Do you think I could?

Lyrics

Would I know if I saw you on the street?

Well I don’t know; but I suspect maybe so.

And if that’s true, if you give me that,

What would you have me do?

Do you think that you’d know too?

 

Yeah, whoa I don’t know.

No doubt about it, there’s something that I just can’t quite let go.

 

Well I passed on by. 

I know it’s okay, but I can’t say why.

Feeling freaked and somewhat shy.

 

But that’s okay.

Some funny feeling inside seems to say.

Tomorrow brings another day.

 

Yeah, whoa I don’t know.

The feeling that I’m feeling might be sinking in too slow.

 

Am I crazy? I don’t know.

Just a bit out of control?

Am I fooling myself?

Do I need some kind of help?

Am I crazy? I don’t know.

I don’t think so.

 

Wait, wait step back.

Premonition held my mind and somehow set this tack.

My friends will think I’m totally whacked.

 

Yeah, whoa I don’t know.

I’m thinking what I’m thinking might be sinking in too slow.

 

And I feel it there.

In my heart and in my mind and everywhere.

Some of this I’ve got to share.

 

Yeah, whoa I don’t know.

The feeling that I’m feeling might be sinking in too slow.

 

Am I crazy? I don’t know.

Just a bit out of control?

Am I fooling myself?

Do I need some kind of help?

Am I crazy? I don’t know.

I don’t think so.

 

And it’s a little bit frightening to me.

Goes against the kind of things I thought I believed

Little bit frightening to me.

Goes against the kind of things I thought I believed in.

And I’m falling in.

 

Am I crazy? I don’t know.

Just a bit out of control?

Am I fooling myself?

Do I need some kind of help?

Am I crazy? I don’t know.

I don’t think so.

 

It’s a little bit frightening to me.

Goes against the kind of things I thought I believed

Little bit frightening to me.

Goes against the kind of things I thought I believed in.

And I’m falling in.

 

It’s been a while, and I struggle with myself to see that smile.

When I do I smile for a long while.

Would I know if I saw you on the street?

Well I don’t know; but I suspect maybe so.

 

Yeah, I now know.

There’s no doubt about it, there’s something that I just can’t quite let go.

Lyrics

When I think about what went wrong;

I think back to the time when I held you like clay in my hands.

If I’d done things differently then

Would you have found the space to become a man, and then some.

 

Getting through to you does not seem possible at all.

Getting through to you is like nailing jello to the wall.

 

You try to run, you try to hide;

But you can’t hide from what’s inside now my friend.

You stand there listening, but do you hear?

Or is it in and right back out the other ear.

 

Getting through to you does not seem possible at all.

Getting through to you is like nailing jello to the wall.

 

Brother, brother please come back.

Drop these fences; cease the attack.

Don’t you see what this fight is for?

It’s for you; it’s all we’ve ever been for.

 

Getting through to you does not seem possible at all.

Getting through to you is like nailing jello to the wall.

Lyrics

Just off the bus down at the end of the street.

That’s where I like to go, got some good friends to meet.

As I stroll down the sidewalk, Bird Bird passes me.

Mr. Snuffleupagus is coming over, could I stop back for some tea?

Say Yeah, yeah, yeah.

 

Barkley’s running ‘round; that dog can’t be beat.

Cookie Monster is chowing down; man can that guy eat.

Hey there’s Ernie, got a banana in his ear.

Messing again with Bert, telling him he can’t hear.

Say Yeah, yeah, yeah.

 

Up the steps to Gordon’s, got to stop in for a beer.

Seems so different, Sesame Street from here.

 

Maria’s hanging out down at the grocery store.

Mr. Hooper will help you out; find you what you’re looking for.

Two-headed monster and their vocabulary.

Cooperation works, you know you don’t have to ask me,

Say Yeah, yeah, yeah.

 

Still up at Gordon’s, now I’m seeing things so clear.

Seems so different, Sesame Street from here.

 

Count’s counting constantly, bit obsessive seems to me.

Tweedle Bugs are hanging out, Tweedle problems figured out.

Martians visit frequently, telephone fills them with glee.

Brrrrrrrnnng, some how they hear; bring them somehow to here.

Say Yeah, yeah, yeah.

 

Drop in at Oscar’s, Slimey’s there too.

Grouching’s not the way to go; you know he taught me that, its true.

Stop in at Hooper’s as I leave for the day.

Bread and butter he’s got; milk’s on the way.

Say Yeah, yeah, yeah.

 

Be back at Gordon’s, the perspective keeps me near.

Seems so different, Sesame Street from here.

 

They taught me my ABCs, taught me my 123s,

Taught me nearly everything, I really think so.

When I would come around, they’d always be about;

Coming through the camera lens, took some time to be my friends.

Say Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Lyrics

Archimedes and his principle of buoyancy.

Nicolaus Copernicus, the father of astronomy.

Galileo’s scientific method and refined telescope.

Johannes Kepler’s solar system theory, though he was sick and broke.

 

Isaac Newton; gravitation, laws of motion, F = ma.

Ben Franklin’s stove and bifocals, lightning and electricity.

Henry Cavendish and H20; Joseph Bramah’s lock and W.C.

Eli Whitney’s cotton gin found ways to wealth with that commodity.

 

Parents of invention, patents I can mention.

Part I play as I play my day.

Foraminous process out or in.

And your famous like Edison.

 

Thomas Johann Seebeck thought thermoelectricity.

Louis-Jacques Daguerre made practical photography.

Experimental scientist of great; that’s Mr. Michael Faraday.

Found the fundamental laws for magnetism and electricity.

 

Charlie Babbage designed the first digital computer.

Cyrus Hall McCormick; agriculture’s reaper.

Louis Braille’s system; reading and writing for the blind.

Charles Robert Darwin; evolution of all kind.

 

Parents of invention, patents I can mention.

Part I play as I play my day.

Foraminous process out or in.

And your famous like Edison.

 

Dmitry Mendeleyev’s periodic table; backbone of chemistry

Alexander Bell’s telephone well, communication possibilities.

Mendel’s genetics, dominant, recessive; we now know heredity

Louie Pasteur’s process, curing rabies losses; Mister microbiology.

 

Nikola Tesla’s alternating current; induction motor and Tesla coils

Orville and Wilbur’s Kitty Hawk flight; persistence paid off for the Wright’s toils

Marie Curie’s discoveries; dawned the age of atomic power

Albert Einstein’s theory of relativity showed our mind’s power

 

Parents of invention, patents I can mention.

Part I play as I play my day.

Foraminous process out or in.

And your famous like Edison.
