No Excuse 02:57
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

Lion's Den 03:36
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

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

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...

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!
