Track Name: Wooly Willy
Wooly Willy catch a clam or two for me
I've been a-driftin and a-dallying on the sea
Call me a shipwrecked failure
that can't afford but one luxury..

Trim the sails and play a paddled pitch melody
Cuttle with cuttlefish, muddle with muddy fish, soft and sweet
Oh god, my head it is a wailing
from the days that I've been sailing

Wooly Willy, travel so gallantly
Track Name: Winter Wear
Don’t leave your home
without your feathers
For would-be winter weathers
Canary, your cage
It doesn’t warrant such rage
or mischief
you’ll lose your nose
you’ll lose your toes
you’ll lose your..
Track Name: Chinstrap Brady
I left my home
To find a townie bar
Chin strap, Brady
You’re sure to meet a lady
With a decent car
Track Name: Sweet Sally
Sweet Sally
Sweet Sally
I dream of your tongue and the stories it’s brung, oh you
Sweet Sally
Sweet Sally
Track Name: Ink
A curiosity, a question
If a squid had both influence and fame
If ink was only used with their discretion
Politics, climate change
An oil spill, a stock exchange
Count your toes
Pay what’s owed
Squid pro quo
Track Name: Rat Tat Tat
Park your car
at your favorite bar
do some drinking
put off the thinking

You earned the chance
to fake a dance
You swallowed a hat
With a rat - tat - tat

A brass charade
at a drunk parade
Cats in the alley
your fortune is made
Track Name: Walter Ego
Told myself to dress up fancy
Hem the heart and stitch with care
Don’t be singing like some Nancy
Pure bravado, singular

So when you call on me
And when I see things through
The stars will shine ever brighter
and linger much longer on the horizon
My darling Sue
And that’s something new

So, toast your alter eggo waffles
A maple syrup kinda dare..
Track Name: Pipe Weed
Pipe weed
Is all you need
for a hobbit
'neath a tree

Oh, Gandy please
save some magic
for me
Track Name: Swap
Daylight, oh, have you heard the one they call the riddley fiddley thee

He's the wind 'o the earth, charm of the bird, that tickeled the elephant's knee

Be my friend or foe and I will know the riddley fiddley thee
Track Name: Follicle Fables
Tell a tale or two about a land imbued with hero ever-bold
Give him danger and the hope to see it through unscathed, behold
Jousting with giants, saving some maiden
Chivalry's not quite dead yet
Pirates are sailing, creatures are wailing
All for the chance to get read
Travel to the future, capture all the secrets man has to explore
Savor every moment and return to something long before
Vikings are playful, follicle fables
Blowing of steam and seaweed
Oh, give me a wizard, dragon trained
Stories are all that I need
