GET ON BOARD
(lyrics by Mark Manthei, recorded by Manteye)

I was eighteen years old and I felt like a man
Layin' tracks through the countryside, I had a plan
And I couldn't see no future in these northern towns
That's when I heard the whistle, it was callin' me down
Chorus
It said get on board, this ain't no train
It's a living legend, from way back when
And it rolls by that highway in a parallel line
Through the rest of these towns, the world left behind

Now the pool halls and the junk yards were a place to call home
Hangin' out with the good ol' boys, no one was alone
And when it came time for leavin', we did it one by one
That's when I heard the whistle, it was callin' me down
Chorus
It said get on board, this ain't no train
It's a living legend from way back when
And it rolls by that highway in a parallel line
Through the rest of these towns, the world left behind

Bridge
No I didn't have to run
Cause there was no where to hide
But when the whistle called me down
That's when I knew it was time
Chorus
It said get on board, this ain't no train
It's a living legend from way back when
And it rolls by that highway in a parallel line
Through the rest of these towns
This little old world left behind

LAZY RIVER
(lyrics by Mark Manthei, recorded by Manteye)

Well There Were Shady Trees Here Where I Was Born
The Rivers Still There But The Trees Are Gone
Like Everything Else I Guess Nothing Ever Stays The Same
And People Come Here From Miles Around
To Pitch There Tents Near The Midway Grounds
And Listen To Rock And Roll
In The Pouring Rain

And It Could Never Feel Like Some Foreign Land
So I'll Come Back Here When I Can

Because I'm Still Here Stuck On Lazy River Again
Oh Yes I'm Still Here Stuck On Lazy River Again

Now The Old Man That Used To Live Next To Me
Had A Faithful Dog And A Colour T.V.
That We Would Watch As He Spoke Of The Good Ol' Days
He Said I've Been Around This Big Old World
Still Stand At Attention When The Flags Unfurled
When I Was A Boy Son Things Had To Be That Way
And What Brought Me Back Here I Don't Know
I Guess There's No Place That I Can Go

Because I'm Still Here Stuck On Lazy River Again
Oh Yes I'm Still Here Stuck On Lazy River Again
You Bet I'm Still Here Stuck On Lazy River
Rock And Roll Is Still Here
Stuck On Lazy River
The Old Man Is Still Here
Stuck On Lazy River
And It's A Lonely Place Yea

SHE'S NO ANGEL
(lyrics by Mark Manthei, recorded by Manteye)

I have been tempted
many times I have tried
to change I've got but I'll walk down that line with you
I could wait till temptation arrives
Would I stop dead in my tracks
could I walk down that line with you
She could make her impression on somebody else
the truth always comes out everytime she tells it thats true
So you'd better not be an emotional man
You'd better be somebody that understands her like I do
Or she'll get the best of you
She's no angel
But she's everything I need
She's no angel
But she's all that I've got
And she'll stand by me
Now whenever I feel empty and there's no one inside
Knockin' on my soul well I know that you've tried to get through
Doesn't matter where you are
I know that your tryin' to get in
And you may be far away
But I know where I stand with you
And with all this temptation we've learned how to live
In spite of ourselves we have learned how to give what we do
And we do
So I'd better not be an emotional man
I'd better be somebody that understands her like I do
And I do ya
She's no angel
But she's everything I need
She's no angel
But she's all that I've got
And she'll stand by me
She's no angel ----------She's everything I need
Shes no angel ----------She's everything I got
She's no angel -----------And she's everything I want
She's no angel --------------Yes She's everything I need ya
She's no angel --------------She's everything I want
She's no angel--------------And she'll stand by me
She's no angel ------------------She'll stand by me yea yea yea

SO SENSATIONAL
(lyrics by Mark Manthei, recorded by Manteye)

Oh Eddie's got a silver shadow
Gonna take it out on the street tonight
And Louie's got a volkwagen
Top down when the moment is right
And don't ever kid yourself honey
These boys mean business
They come from the other side of town
To do a little living, it's poetry in motion
And they ain't gonna stop until
They bring this city down

Now I've got a girl
Her hair is strawberry blond
She's smoldering hot
And were sittin' at the pony express
By the sign in the parking lot
And I don't know how long that I can go on
Doing time with somebody I've been living without
But I'm gonna find a way somehow baby
If I have to give away everthing
This city's got
Chorus
It's so sensational to be out on the street tonight
It's so sensational, it takes so little just to make it to the bottom line
So sensational
Honey give me a kiss so I can check your temperature twice yea

There's a sign on the freeway
Tell you which way to follow this road uptown
When you get to the first set of lights
Turn left or you'll never make it off this merry go round
I see a lot of young blooded fortune hunters
It looks like some kind of tourist trap
Gonna do a little livin', it's poetry in motion
And they ain't gonna stop
Until they get the city back
It's so sensational to be out on the street tonight
It's so sensational, it takes so little just to make it to the bottom line
So sensational
Honey give me a kiss so I can check your temperature twice yea
I see a lot of young blooded fortune hunters
It looks like some kind of tourist trap
Gonna do a little living, it's poetry in motion
And they ain't gonna stop
Until they get the city back
It's so sensational, to be out on the street tonight
It's so sensational, it takes so little just to make it to the bottom line
It's so sensational, to be out on the street tonight
It's so sensational, it takes so little just to make it to the bottom line
It's so sensational
Honey give me a kiss so I can check your temperature twice yea
Now Eddies got a silver shadow, gonna take it out on the street tonight
