about

The debut release from Greedy Cherry is a five song exploration of musical genres, each tune written in a different style. From blues-tinged funk to Beatle-esque pop, a gentle bossa nova to a loping bit of reggae, there's something here for everyone!

Track Name: No Excuse
I wish I had a nickel for every lie you've told
For every night you shut me down and left me in the cold
I wish I had just one thin dime for every time you cried
And somewhere deep inside of me a little something died

But I ain't got no money
And you got no excuse

I wish I had a quarter for every plastic smile
My lawn would shine like silver, huge nickel-plated piles
And if I had a dollar bill for every fit you've thrown
I'd be buying stuff outright instead of rent-to-own

But I don't even have the juice to pay for this here groove...

A little taste of chocolate, a little sip of wine
Some laughter and a kiss or two would keep me feelin' fine
But fine to you means payment for everything I'm not
So I'll just keep on writing checks for money I ain't got

Yeah, it seems you have bewitched me, your hair all wild and loose
So lead me to the gallows and put me in that noose
'Cause I ain't got no money
And you got no excuse
Track Name: Lion's Den
Kingdom come, whose will be done?
Is it the pauper man, or the lion?
While poor man waits for a crust of bread
A crown sits on the lion's head

Look around and tell me what you see
Well, it's none for I, twenty for he
Steal it all, the lion hoard
"Why is it so?" I ask my Lord

'Cause he's got all that stuff
Pauper hardly has enough
In the lion's den

Who can break that lion's spell?
Are we doomed to live this pauper's hell?
He's so strong he'll enslave us all
To our hungry knees you see us fall

And with one mighty roar
We'll be poor forever more
In the lion's den
Track Name: Baby, You're The One
Take me in your arms and don't let go
Tell me you're the one that loves me so
And when you put your hand in mine
The clouds depart and the sun shines
Baby, you're the one, that's all I know

When I hear you call my name, I smile
Can I hold you close just for a while?
And when your sweet lips draw so near
All of my troubles disappear
Baby, you're the one, you're my sweet child

I need you, so darlin' say that you'll be true
Because I can't imagine living my whole life without you

Everybody knows we're hand and glove
And every night I thank the stars above
And when I'm lying by your side
My hopes and dreams I cannot hide
Baby, you're the one, you're my true love
Track Name: William Isaac
Simple folk can't understand the wise words of the frail old man
They disregard as nonsense
Still behind the cabin door, his voice tries to give them more
They dismiss him offhand

Summer breeze and winter snow he lives up on the hill
Keeping mostly to himself, sits by the window sill
Go look deep into his eyes and see the years gone by
Softly ask for truth and he'll reply...

William Isaac was the man who climbed the hill with heart in hand
To learn about his destiny, to find if love was meant to be
He rapped upon the cabin door, the old man asked of him what for
Will replied, "My soul is dead...I asked advice and my friends said,

'Summer breeze and winter snow he lives up on the hill
Keeping mostly to himself, sits by the window sill'."
Will looked in the old man's eyes and saw the years gone by
Softly asked for truth, old man replied

"Oh, son...I've much to tell you.
Oh, son...you've much to learn.
Life's fire burns.
Here, son....sit down beside me.
I've a secret for you before the sun returns."

Simple folk can't understand the wise words of the frail old man
Though earnest ones may find the sense...William Isaac rode off hence
Lived a happy, peaceful life: successful business and a wife
I can't tell what he old man said, but I can tell you this instead:

Summer breeze and winter snow he lives up on the hill
Keeping mostly to himself, sits by the window sill
Go look deep into his eyes and see the years gone by
Softly ask for truth and he'll reply...
