“Walkaway Joe” by Trisha Yearwood

Mama told her baby girl take it real slow
Girl told her momma hey I really gotta go
He’s waiting in the car
Mama said girl you won’t get far

Thus are the dreams of an average Jane
Ninety miles an hour down a lovers lane
On a tank of dreams
Oh if she could’ve only seen
That fate’s got cards that it don’t want to show, and

That boy’s just a walkaway Joe
Born to be a leaver tell you from the word go
Destined to deceive her
He’s the wrong kind of paradise
She’s gonna know it in a matter of time
That boy’s just a walkaway Joe

Now just a little while into Abilene
He pulls into a station and he robs it clean
She’s waiting in the car, oh, underneath the Texaco star
She only wanted love didn’t bargain for this
She can’t help but love him for the way he his
She’s only seventeen and there ain’t no reasoning
So she’ll ride this ride as far as it can go, ’cause

That boy’s just a walkaway Joe
Born to be a leaver tell you from the word go
Destined to deceive her
He’s the wrong kind of paradise
She’s gonna know it in a matter of time
That boy’s just a walkaway Joe

Somewhere in a roadside motel room
Alone in the silence she wakes up too soon
And reaches for his arms
But she’ll just keep reaching on
For the cold hard truth revealed what it had known

That boy’s just a walk away Joe
Born to be a leaver tell you from the word go
Destined to deceive her
He’s the wrong kind of paradise
But it was just another lesson in life
That boy was a walkaway Joe

Mmm yeah,
All he was was a walkaway Joe
Oh,
(Walkaway Joe)
He was a walkaway Joe
Mmm

“The Duck Song” by Bryant Oden

(Bum bum bum, ba-dum ba-dum)
A duck walked up to a lemonade stand
And he said to the man, running the stand
“Hey! (Bum bum bum) Got any grapes?”

The man said
“No we just sell lemonade. But it’s cold
And it’s fresh
And it’s all home-made. Can I get you
Glass?”
The duck said,
“I’ll pass”.

Then he waddled away.
(Waddle waddle)
‘Til the very next day.
(Bum bum bum bum ba-bada-dum)

When the duck walked up to the lemonade stand
And he said to the man running the stand,
“Hey! (Bum bum bum) Got any grapes?
The man said,
“No, like I said yesterday
We just sell lemonade OK?
Why not give it a try?”
The duck said,
“Goodbye.”good day

Then he waddled away.
(Waddle waddle)
Then he waddled away.
(Waddle waddle)
Then he waddled away
(Waddle waddle)
‘Til the very next day.
(Bum bum bum bum ba-ba-dum)

When the duck walked up to the lemonade stand
And he said to the man running the stand,
“Hey! (bum bum bum) Got any grapes?
The man said,
Look, this is getting old.
I mean, lemonade’s all we’ve ever sold.
Why not give it a go?”
The duck said,
“How ’bout, no.”

Then he waddled away
(Waddle waddle)
Then he waddled away.
(Waddle waddle waddle)
Then he waddled away
(Waddle waddle)
‘Til the very next day.
(Bum bum bum bum ba-ba-dum)

When the duck walked up to the lemonade stand
And he said to the man running the stand,
“Hey! (Bum bum bum) Got any grapes?”
The man said,
“THAT’S IT!
If you don’t stay away,duck,
I’ll glue you to a tree and leave you there all day, stuck
So don’t get to close!”
The duck said,
“Adios.”

Then he waddled away.
(Waddle waddle)
Then he waddled away.
(Waddle waddle waddle)
Then he waddled away
(Waddle waddle)
‘Til the very next day.
(Bum bum bum bum ba-ba-dum)

When the duck walked up to the lemonade stand
And he said to the man that was running the stand,
“Hey! (Bum bum bum) got any glue?”
“What”
“Got any glue?”
“No, why would I– oh!”
And one more question for you;
“Got any grapes?”
(Bum bum bum, bum bum bum)

And the man just stopped.
Then he started to smile.
He started to laugh.
He laughed for a while.
He said,
“Come on duck, let’s walk to the store.
I’ll buy you some grapes
So you won’t have to ask anymore.”
So they walked to the store
And the man bought some grapes.
He gave one to the duck and the duck said,
“Hmmm..No thanks. But you know what sounds good?
It would make my day.
Do you think this store
Do you think this store
Do you think this store has any lemonade?”

Then he waddled away.
(Waddle waddle)
Then he waddled away.
(Waddle waddle waddle)
Then he waddled away
(Waddle waddle)

“Penthouse Floor” by John Legend

All this trouble in this here town
All this shit going down
When will they focus, on this
Streets ride up with the TV crews
Look ma, we on the news
But they didn’t notice
Before this
They float above the city lights
Forget the truth inhale the lies
Just enjoy the show
They see us reaching for the sky
Just in order to survive
Maybe we should go

Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Let’s ride the elevator, they can’t keep us out no more
Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Penthouse floor

All that bubbly all that wine
Oh man look at the times
Didn’t they notice, notice
Only future I can see, ain’t what it used to be
And I didn’t know this, I didn’t know this
Once you’re above the city lights
Won’t want to spend another night, down there on your own
The holding on display for us
The altitude is dangerous, but we ain’t going home

Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Let’s ride the elevator, it’s what we’ve been waiting for
Can’t keep us out no more (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)

I heard this old joke once, it was like, uh
Knock knock, who’s there, it’s us, us who?
Just us, who dis? Just playin’
Just me, new phone, new hair, new era
I’m in the penthouse, baby
Handpicked from bad apples and bad eggs
Held back, I had to grab crab legs
And then there were only but a few
Conversations held with patience, what a party, what a view
What a dress, what a song
What a beautiful time
My folks downstairs still waiting in line
They never been in these rooms
Never stayed with these folks
Never laughed at the news, never hated these jokes
So as I fly in my suit, in a group, undercover
Forcing a new smile, he tells me another
He said “What happened to the boy that climbed up the trunk?”
Then he pushed me off the top and said “Jump, nigga jump!”

Oh don’t bring me down, I need a room up in the clouds
I wanna get there babe, I wanna elevate
Oh my favourite mix
A little ignorance and bliss
In the penthouse babe, go to the penthouse

Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go, yeah)
Go to the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Let’s ride the elevator, it’s what we’ve been waiting for (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
We’ll tear down those penthouse doors (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Those penthouse doors
We’ll tear down the penthouse doors (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Baby, I’m in the penthouse floor (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)
Baby, let’s ride the elevator
‘Til we can rise some more
Go to the penthouse floor, penthouse floor, oh, oh, oh, oh (let’s go, let’s go, let’s go)

“Jump Up, Super Star!” by Kate Davis from Super Mario Odyssey

[Verse 1]
Here we go, off the rails
Don’t you know it’s time to raise our sails?
It’s freedom like you never knew
Don’t need bags or a pass
Say the word, I’ll be there in a flash
You could say my hat is off to you

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Oh we can zoom all the way to the moon
From this great wide wacky world
Jump with me, grab coins with me, oh yeah!

[Chorus 1]
It’s time to jump up in the air
Jump up, don’t be scared
Jump up and your cares will soar away
And if the dark clouds start to swirl
Don’t fear, don’t shed a tear ’cause
I’ll be your 1-Up girl
So let’s all jump up super high!
High up in the sky!
There’s no power-up like dancing
You know that you’re my super star
No one else can take me this far
I’m flipping the switch
Get ready for this
Oh, let’s do the Odyssey

[Post-Chorus]
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, ya see!
Odyssey, Odyssey!

[Verse 2]
Spin the wheel, take a chance
Every journey starts a new romance
A new world’s calling out to you
Take a turn, off the path
Find a new addition to the cast
You know that any captain needs a crew

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Take it in stride as you move, side to side
They’re just different points of view
Jump with me, grab coins with me, oh yeah!

[Chorus 2]
Come on and jump up in the air
Jump without a care
Jump up ’cause you know that I’ll be there
And if you find you’re short on joy
Don’t fret, just don’t forget that
You’re still our 1-Up boy
So go on, straighten up your cap
Let your toes begin to tap
This rhythm is a power ‘shroom
Don’t forget you’re the super star
No one else could make it this far
Put a comb through that ‘stache
Now you’ve got panache
Oh, let’s do the Odyssey!

[Chorus 3]
It’s time to jump up in the air
Jump up, don’t be scared
Jump up and your cares will soar away
And if the dark clouds start to swirl
Don’t fear, don’t shed a tear ’cause
I’ll be your 1-Up girl
Now listen, all you boys and girls
All around the world
Don’t be afraid to get up and move
You know that we’re all superstars
We’re the ones who made it this far
Put a smile on that face
There’s no time to waste, so
Let’s do the Odyssey!

“Oil Spill” by Megan Mullally from Bob’s Burgers

Oh, it’s hot and wet and slick
And it’s making everybody sick

Oil spill
Oil spill
Oil spill

It’s on the fish, it’s on the crabs
Smells so close that you can grab it

Oil spill
Oil spill
Oil spill

“Robot Parade” by They Might Be Giants

In a future time
Children will work together
To build a giant cyborg

Robot parade, robot parade

Wave the flags that the robots made
Robot parade, robot parade
Robots obey what the children say

There’s electric cars
There’s electric trains
Here comes a robot with electric brains

Robot parade, robot parade
Wave the flags that the robots made
Robot parade, robot parade
Robots obey what the children say

“The Gambler” by Kenny Rogers

On a warm summer’s eve
On a train bound for nowhere
I met up with the gambler
We were both too tired to sleep

So we took turns a-starin’
Out the window at the darkness
The boredom overtook us,
And he began to speak

He said, “Son, I’ve made a life
Out of readin’ people’s faces
Knowin’ what the cards were
By the way they held their eyes
So if you don’t mind me sayin’
I can see you’re out of aces
For a taste of your whiskey
I’ll give you some advice”

So I handed him my bottle
And he drank down my last swallow
Then he bummed a cigarette
And asked me for a light
And the night got deathly quiet
And his faced lost all expression
He said, “If you’re gonna play the game, boy
You gotta learn to play it right

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’
When the dealin’s done

Every gambler knows
That the secret to survivin’
Is knowin’ what to throw away
And knowin’ what to keep
‘Cause every hand’s a winner
And every hand’s a loser
And the best that you can hope for is to die
in your sleep

And when he finished speakin’
He turned back toward the window
Crushed out his cigarette
And faded off to sleep
And somewhere in the darkness
The gambler he broke even
But in his final words
I found an ace that I could keep

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’
When the dealin’s done

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em (when to hold ’em)
Know when to fold ’em (when to fold ’em)
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’
When the dealin’s done

You’ve got to know when to hold ’em
Know when to fold ’em
Know when to walk away
And know when to run
You never count your money
When you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’
When the dealin’s done

“Grandpa (Tell Me ’bout the Good Old Days)” by the Judds

Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
Sometimes it feels like
This world’s gone crazy
Grandpa, take me back to yesterday
When the line between right and wrong
Didn’t seem so hazy

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other, come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say?
Did families really bow their heads to pray?
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days

Grandpa, everything is changing fast
We call it progress
But I just don’t know
And Grandpa, let’s wander back into the past
And paint me the picture
Of long ago

Did lovers really fall in love to stay
And stand beside each other come what may?
Was a promise really something people kept
Not just something they would say and then forget?
Did families really bow their heads to pray?
Did daddies really never go away?
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days
Oh, Grandpa, tell me ’bout the good old days

“Those Were the Days” by Carroll O’Connor and Jean Stapleton from All in the Family

Boy, the way Glenn Miller played!
Songs that made the Hit Parade.
Guys like us, we had it made.
Those were the days!

And you knew where you were then.
Girls were girls and men were men.
Mister, we could use a man like Herbert Hoover again.

Didn’t need no welfare state.
Everybody pulled his weight.
Gee, our old LaSalle ran great.
Those were the days!
