Track Name: Desert With Lights
Desert With Lights
© 2012 by Brendan Milburn & Valerie Vigoda

drive as fast as you can and you're feeling so free
in the river of cars as they race to the bright blue sea
it ain't hard to escape when you just gotta get a little space
yeah when things get rough
and you've had enough
then you're in the perfect place

it's a city of angels
it's a city of dreams 
where all sins are forgiven 
washed away by the light of the bright sunbeams
oh, if you're lonely, you're only
a moment away from the star-studded nights
there are stars all around you
and they shine in this desert
it's a desert with lights

there are hopes you've kept secret ever since you were young
that chance still never taken, the song still unsung
in the glow of the sunshine, maybe there's nothing to fear
if you breathe in deep
and take that leap
then it just might happen here

in the city of angels
it's a city of dreams
where all sins are forgiven
washed away by the light of the bright sunbeams
oh, if you're lonely, you're only
a moment away from the star-studded nights
there are stars all around you
and they shine in this desert
it's a desert with lights

where the people seem to be so
welcoming and grand
at the edge of possibility
in the warmth of the western sand
'cause for every fallen angel 
who has ever dropped from grace,
for every ray of hope extinguished
a new one comes to take...its...place...

in the city of angels
in the city of dreams
where all sins are forgiven
washed away by the light of the bright sunbeams
oh, if you're lonely, you're only
a moment away from the star-studded nights
there are stars all around you
and they shine in this desert
it's a desert with lights

Track Name: Milburn, Vigoda, & Wolpe - She Likes Me
she don't like bubbles in her wine
she don't like making up her mind
well I think that's just fine
'cause she likes me

you know she really hates to wait
she don't like staying up too late
well I think that's just great
'cause she likes me

you know that she likes me better than her favorite slow song
as long as she likes me, then nothin' in this world can go wrong
as long as she likes me then there ain't nothin' in this world can bring me down
'cause I like her, and she like me, and we like havin' each of us around.

and she don't like my porkpie hat
you know that she's allergic to my cat
but I'm all right with that
'cause she likes me

well she don't care for sand and sun,
no that ain't her idea of fun
but that don't matter none
'cause she likes me

you know that she likes me, and I just can't shut up about it
hey man, she likes me, this girl she makes me wanna shout it
as long as she likes me, then there ain't nothing in this world can bring me down
'cause I like her and she like me, we like havin' each of us around.

as long as she likes me she don't have to change no way or no how
as long as she likes me then I don't wanna ever let her go now
as long as she likes me, then there ain't nothing in this world can bring me down
'cause I like her, and she like me, and we like havin' each of us around.
Track Name: I Believe (Ernest Shackleton Loves Me)
All the things I believed in my life
the bizarre, crazy things I believed in my life
like the tooth fairy,
world peace,
Bruce,
none of those worked out.

So, what the hell,
what the hell,
what the hell,
there's no reason I shouldn't believe this as well.
A sailor en route to his Antarctic mission
has fallen in love with this unsung musician

and my music gives him the strength to sail on
through the storm and with wind and the grey of the dawn
I will believe every word that he said,
I believe that my music can summon the dead,

transcend the laws of physics,
knock logic on its back;
I don't care if I'm delirious, delirious
I will believe Ernest Shackleton Loves Me.
He loves me!
Yeah, he loves me!
A dead explorer loves me!
I believe that Ernest Shackleton loves me.
Track Name: Eye of the Storm
dry your eyes, there's my dear
never mind where you are, only know you are here
in the eye of the storm

now chin up, take my hand
you may be far from home, but you're safe on dry land
in the eye of the storm

never mind that you're out on the edge of the earth
and it seems like you'll never succeed
when you think that you're down, fight for all that you're worth,
and you'll find that you have all the strength that you need

if you can't catch a break,
hunker down, soldier on, now your task is to make
those you love safe and warm

don't regret what has been
let it go, for we'll never be right here again.
who needs sleep?
breathe in deep
be the calm in the eye of the storm.
Track Name: Welcome to the World (2013 version)
Welcome to the World
©2006 by Milburn & VIgoda, published by Hooked on Phonics

Long journey
so weary
hard road for both of them
feet heavy
eyes bleary
long way to Bethlehem

she's never been so tired
he's never been so worried
the baby's coming any time

no kindness
no cradle
there's no room at the inn
in a manger
in a stable
this new life will begin

her eyes are filled with wonder
his eyes with tears of gladness
their baby boy is born tonight and they say

welcome, welcome, welcome to the world
welcome, welcome, welcome to the world


so quiet
so peaceful
she rocks her son to sleep
come angels
come people
come shepherds with your sheep

come see our little savior
come tiptoe very softly
come gather round our darling boy and tell him

Welcome (sh- don't wake the baby)
Welcome (sh- don't wake the baby)
Welcome to the world
Welcome (sh- don't wake the baby)
Welcome (sh- don't wake the baby)
Welcome to the world (wwwaaaaaahhhh)

Welcome (let me hold the baby)
Welcome (let me hold the baby)
Welcome to the world
Welcome (let me hold the baby)
Welcome (let me hold the baby)
Welcome to the world
Track Name: Money and Musicians and Explorers
OH NEVER GIVE YOUR MONEY TO NO MUSICIAN
THEY'LL BLOW IT ALL ON GUITAR STRINGS AND BREAD
IF YOU WANT A SOUND INVESTMENT,
THEN YOUR MONEY WILL BE BEST SPENT 
ON A SLOT MACHINE OR ROULETTE WHEEL INSTEAD

ERNEST
Oh, I've got one!

DON’T YOU GIVE YOUR MONEY TO NO EXPLORER
ADVENTURE FILLS THE HEART BUT NOT THE PURSE
OH HE'LL TELL YOU THERE'LL BE RICHES
AND THE POLAR ICE BEWITCHES
BUT YOU'LL LOSE YOUR SHIRT AND ALL YOUR CASH, OR WORSE

OH THEY'LL SAY ANYTHING TO CHANGE YER MIND
THEY'LL TELL YOU HOW THEY'RE IN A BIND
AND HOW THEY'RE ON THE VERGE OF SOMETHIN' GREAT

Kat
AND THEN they'LL PROMISE YOU THE MOON
THE RENT COMES DUE, THEY CHANGE THEIR TUNE

Kat & ernest
AND THEN YOU REALIZE IT'S MUCH TOO LATE...

KAT
OH NEVER GIVE YOUR MONEY TO NO MUSICIAN

ERNEST
Or explorer!

KAT
DON'T GIVE US DOLLARS SHEKELS PESOS POUNDS OR YEN

ERNEST & KAT
'CAUSE DESPITE OUR BEST INTENTIONS
YOU'LL NEED LEGAL INTERVENTIONS
IF YOU EVER WANT THAT MONEY BACK AGAIN

BECAUSE YOU KNOW WE AIN'T LIKE OTHER FOLKS
WE PUSH AND PULL AND PRY AND COAX
THE BEAUTY FROM THE BORING AND MUNDANE
WE DON'T KNOW FROM FINANCIAL THINGS
WE LIVE LIKE PAUPERS, DREAM LIKE KINGS
AND EVERYBODY THINKS THAT WE'RE INSANE

BETTER BRILLIANTER AND BROKER
THAN WELL OFF AND MEDIOCRE
WE’LL BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT IT ANYWAY
BETTER DIRT POOR AND INSPIRED
THAN ALL RICH AND FAT AND TIRED
DOWN AND OUT MUSICIANS AND EXPLORERS, THAT'S HOW WE'RE GONNA STAY!!!
