Look at me Large and in charge, taking down names The way to be In control of every part of your little game Getting things done you don’t have to like my method or tack But you gotta admit I’m the one to put you back on track When you call upon The Cleaner Be prepared to get things done That’s right, they call me The Cleaner And fixing your mess is job number one Look at you The mess that you made piled around your feet Whatcha gonna do? Panic and run out to the street? Just sit still I’m here now to set everything right And perhaps You’ll find yourself sleeping better tonight

Can’t get this out of my head The last words that you said Tried to make you stay Still you went away You think you understand But you’re just a man This thing is bigger than you And there’s nothing you can do You can ride out to the last place on earth And see the edge of time When does a day really end? Find out on Howland Isle

This is the least impressive dance song You’ve heard out on the dance floor But as you listen to it You want MORE MORE MORE It spins around in circles And it does laps round your head But as you listen to it You want MORE MORE MORE What is it about this song That makes you want to come along? More, you say? You want more? What more could we have in store? More, you say? You want more? Lucky you, we got more in store You’ve tried the other dance songs That ask you to come along But you never find yourself Wanting MORE MORE MORE Every time you listen to All the other dance songs You find them to all be A BORE BORE BORE

Another night alone, sitting with myself Thinking of how it used to be I try to distract myself Flipping through channels on TV I come upon you there Staring back at me And I wonder If you could help me see Hey Dr. Martin, can you mend a broken heart Seems mines not working, it’s been torn all apart She said she loved me, then she turned and walked away Do you she’s coming back some day? Back some day So I find myself looking for escape Disregarding thoughts of better days And I wonder if I met you now Just what words you’d say But I know, I can make it through tonight I just need a little more time Still I find myself asking…. Hey Dr. Martin, can you mend a broken heart Seems mines not working, it’s been torn all apart She said she loved me, then she turned and walked away Do you she’s coming back some day? Back some day "It’s time to face up to the truth" "You can’t just hide there in your room” Sure, Doc, I knew that’s just what you’d say But maybe I can find another way

She says she knows the whisper number The one that she shouldn’t know The words are hiding just under her breath And she’s afraid to let them go It’s best kept close to the vest A place where no one can see And if you learn the whisper number Keep it between you and me Don’t you think that you should keep it to yourself? Well I do This whisper number is meant for no one else, only you If you learn the whisper number The eyes are all on you People hanging on your every word Watching everything you do Stay away from the whisper number It’s far from your friend It’s a story that seems great at first But you won’t like how this one ends We can’t let this get out on the street, Don’t you see? This whisper number is meant for no one else, only me

Master of music King of the blues Shakespearian insults A well-rounded dude Legend says he’s six foot ten With arms made of steel And he can look into your eyes And tell just how you feel Who do you want to be? Who do you want to be? If you leave it up to me I'd be Bruce Pingree Holding court in the Press Room Or on your radio dial Whatever he’s doing He does it with style Ladies love his silky voice Men wish they were him And every time you go away You want to see him again Who do you want to be? Who do you want to be? If you leave it up to me I'd be Bruce Pingree He’s just a man you say Well not around these parts Come to the Seacoast You’ll have a change of heart

Romulus is 12 years old and 17 hands At 5 foot 8 he’s taller than Oklahoma Sam The world’s tallest donkey, Guinness put it in their book If you don’t believe me, you can go take a look That’s right, he’s the world’s tallest donkey, such a sight to see The world’s tallest donkey, Much bigger than you and me An American mammoth, about the size of a car If you try to move him you won’t get very far He has a brother names Remus, nearly as tall But Romulus is bigger, the biggest of them all 1300 pounds, 600 kilos across the pond That’s enough to scare you, if you found him on your lawn American Mammoth Jackstock gelding Guarding the farm from predators And you’d best not disturb them ‘Cause it’ll cause quite a stir

After all this time it comes down to this You still excite me with every kiss And every time you go away, I have to say It makes for quite a long day I hate it when I’m away from you Sometimes, I know, it’s what we have to do But I hate it when I’m away from you And I know, you do, too So after all this time, it’s still sublime When I spend time with you And if I had my way, I wouldn’t leave you Not even for a day

about

Letter Seventeen Norcross

Whimsical indie pop from a one-man band. Except when other people help. Which is quite often. So it's not like a one-man band at all.
Oh. And there are songs about donkeys.
