Sylvia's mother says "Sylvia's hurrying she's catching the nine o'clock train"
Sylvia's mother says "Take your umbrella, 'cause Sylvia it's starting to rain"
And Sylvia's mother says "Thank you for calling and sir won't you come back again"
And the operator says
"Forty cents more for the next three minutes"

My baby takes the morning train
He works from nine 'til five and then
He takes another home again
To find me waiting for him

Workin' in a coal mine
Goin' down down, down
Workin' in a coal mine
Oops, about to slip down
Five o'clock in the mornin'
I'm already up and gone
Lord, I'm so tired
How long can this go on?

Now, they never reopened that worthless pit
They just placed a marble stand in front of it
These few words are written on that stand
At the bottom of this mine lies a big, big man
Big John

He's been gone for such a long time
(Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend's back)
Now he's back and things'll be fine
(Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend's back)
You're gonna be sorry you were ever born
(Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend's back)
'Cause he's kinda big and he's awful strong
(Hey-la-day-la my boyfriend's back)

I was born in the backseat of a greyhound bus,
Rollin' down highway 41,
Lord, I was born a ramblin' man...

"Kathy," I said as we boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburgh,
"Michigan seems like a dream to me now.
It took me four days to hitchhike from Saginaw,
I've gone to look for America."

I gotta be cool, relax, get hip
And get on my track's
Take a back seat, hitch-hike
And take a long ride on my motorbike
Until I'm ready
Crazy little thing called love

Mama, he's crazy, crazy over me
And in my life is where he says
He always wants to be

I've never been so in love
He beats all I've ever seen
Mama, he's crazy, he's crazy over me

So I stood with a knot in my stomach,
And I gazed at that terrible sight,
Of two youngsters concealed in a barrel,
Smoking monkberry moon delight, (om pah om pah pah) ho!
Monkberry moon delight, (om pah om pah pah)
Monkberry moon delight, (om pah om pah pah)

Eatin' that rainbow stew from a silver spoon
Underneath a sky of blue,
We'll all be drinkin' that sweet bubble-ubb,
And eatin' that rainbow stew...

If they could see me now
That old gang of mine
Eating fancy chow
And drinking fancy wine
If all my friends could see me now
See me now, holy cow

Hungry as hell no food to eat
And Joe said that he would sell his soul
For just a piece of meat
Water enough to drink for two
And Joe said to me, "I'll have a swig
And then there's some for you."
Timothy, Timothy, Joe was looking at you
Timothy, Timothy, God what did we do?

Timothy Leary's dead
No, no, he's outside looking in
Timothy Leary's dead
No, no, he's outside looking in
He'll fly his astral plane
Takes you trips around the bay
Brings you back the same day
Timothy Leary, Timothy Leary

One fine night, when we were all in bed
Mrs. O'Leary left her lantern in the shed
The cow tipped it over, and this is what we said:
"There'll be a hot time in the old town tonight!"
FIRE! FIRE! FIRE!

We, on our present life,
Knew that the stars were right.
That if you are the first to go,
You'll leave a sign to let me know,
Tell me so.
Please, carry the lantern lights.

You crossed the sea of night,
Free from the spell of fright
Your cloak it is a spirit shroud.
You'll wake me in my sleeping hours,
Like a cloud.
So, please, carry the lantern high.

The mountain is high, the valley is low
And you're confused on which way to go
So I've come here to give you a hand
And lead you into the promised land, so
come on and sit here by my side
(Ooh, ooh) come on and take a free ride

I'm sailing away set an open course for the virgin sea
I've got to be free free to face the life that's ahead of me
On board I'm the captain so climb aboard
We'll search for tomorrow on every shore
And I'll try oh Lord I'll try to carry on

Ride captain ride upon your mystery ship
On your way to a world that others might have missed

Long ago, and, oh, so far away
I fell in love with you before the second show
Your guitar, it sounds so sweet and clear, but you're not really here
It's just the radio

Hey ya'll prepare yourself for the rubberband man
You've never heard a sound
Like the rubberband man
You're bound to lose control
When the rubberband starts to jam
Oh boy, this dude is outta sight!
Everything he does seems to come out right

I like bread and butter,
I like toast and jam,
That's what my baby feeds me,
I'm her loving man.

You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin' out
Now you don't walk so proud
Now you don't talk so loud
About having to be scrounging for your
Next meal
How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
A complete unknown
Just like a rolling stone?

I don't know how this whole business started
Of you thinkin' that I had been untrue
But if you think that we'd be better parted
It's gonna hurt me but I'll break away from you
Well, just give me the sign and I will be gone, yeahh
That's how much I feel
Feel for you, baby
How much I need I need your touch
How much I live I live for your loving
That's how much, that's how much
That's how much, that's how much

Feelings, nothing more than feelings,
Trying to forget my feelings of love.
Teardrops rolling down on my face,
Trying to forget my feelings of love....

And maybe I didn't hold you,
All those lonely, lonely times.
I guess I never told you,
I am so happy that you're mine.
Little things I should have said and done,
I just never took the time.
You were always on my mind,
You were always on my mind.

'Cause it's time, it's time in time with your time
And its news is captured
For the queen to use!
Move me on to any black square
Use me anytime you want
Just remember that the goal
Is for us all to capture all we want

When you're down and out
When you're on the street
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you
I'll take your part
Oh when darkness comes
And pain is all, is all around

And it's good old country comforts in my bones
Just the sweetest sound my ears have ever known
Just an old fashioned feeling in my bones
Country comforts and the road that's going home

Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner
But he knew it wouldn't last
Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona
Bought some California grass

Get back, get back
Get back to where you once belonged

Strip off your pride, you're acting like a teeny-bopper run away child,
Scrape off the paint off the face of a little town saint,
Arizona, take off your hobo shoes,
Arizona, hey won'tcha go my way?

So that's why you've got to try
You got to breath and have some fun
Though I'm not paid I play this game
And I won't stop until I'm done
But what I really want to know is
Are you gonna go my way?
And I got to got to know

It landed foul on the grass
The players tried for a forward pass,
With the Jester on the sidelines in a cast...
The halftime air was sweet perfume..

The old house is still standing tho' the paint is cracked and dry,
And there's that old oak tree that I used to play on.
Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary,
Hair of gold and lips like cherries,
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.

So long, mom,
I'm off to drop the bomb,
So don't wait up for me.
But though I may roam,
I'll come back to my home,
Although it may be
A pile of debris.

Remember, mommy,
I'm off to get a commie,
So send me a salami,
And try to smile somehow.
I'll look for you when the war is over,
An hour and a half from now!

Oh we will all fry together when we fry

Yes, we all will fry together when we fry

We should be together
We should be together my friends
We can be together
We will be
We must begin here and now
A new continent of earth and fire
Come on now gettin' higher and higher
Tear down the walls
Tear down the walls (the album jacket says "Fred")
Tear down the walls

Sailin' away on the crest of a wave
It's like magic
Oh, rollin' and ridin' and slippin' and slidin'
It's magic
And you, and your sweet desire
You took me higher and higher, baby

It's a livin' thing
It's a terrible thing to lose
It's a given thing
What a terrible thing to lose

Sailing takes me away to where I've always heard it could be,
Just a dream and the wind to carry me,
And soon I will be free....
