LYRICS

In Dreamland

Twilight descends on two dreamers
Starlight her beauty displays
The Sandman will lead them to Dreamland
One million light years away

They'll find each other in Dreamland
Fairytale romance at play
Nothing but magic in Dreamland
Till morning just whisks them away

You can fly anywhere in Dreamland
Dance among all of the stars
Or catch a ride on a comet
Somewhere between Venus and Mars

They'll find each other in Dreamland
Fairytale romance at play
Nothing but magic in Dreamland
Till morning just whisks them away

You're not just in my imagination
I know in my heart that you're real
I close my eyes and I see you
And hear your voice telling me that's how you feel

Alas, daylight comes and I awaken
Nowhere in view are the stars
And yet the magic continues
Dreamland is wherever you are

We'll stay here forever in Dreamland
Fairytale romance at play
Love lasts forever in Dreamland
Nothing can whisk it away

Dreamland

Gold and Tears

She was healthy
I was wealthy
She was young
And I was old
She acted like
She wanted me
All she wanted
Was my gold

Gold and tears
Was the price I paid
For promised love
She never gave
I gave her love
Sincere and true
But all I got
Was an IOU

I asked my friend
Would she be faithful
And then he gave
Me his advice
I did not heed
My good friend's warning
And then I paid
A heavy price

Gold and tears
Was the price I paid
For promised love
She never gave
I gave her love
Sincere and true
But all I got
Was an IOU

I gave her love
Enough for two
But all I got
Was an IOU
An IOU
So insincere
I paid the price
With gold and tears

Once burned
Twice shy
Yet I fell for her lie
But this one took it all
And me....I took the fall

Gold and tears
Was the price I paid

Save a Little For Me

SAVE A LITTLE FOR ME, save a little for you
If you change your mind like you sometimes do
I'll be waiting around always be true
SAVE A LITTLE FOR ME, save a little for you
I thought that we would always be together, you vowed to me we'd never be apart
I meant each word I said at that sweet union, I guess you didn't take your vow to heart
(REPEAT CHORUS)
I guess to you I seem a bit old-fashion, just one love forever will not do
But once you go around full circle, you'll find that I'm still waiting here for you
(REPEAT CHORUS)
Time is on my side but I grow older, I'll wait for you until the end of days
I won't abandon us for any other, I'll never ever throw our love away
SAVE A LITTLE FOR ME, save a little for you
If you change your mind like you sometimes do
I'll be waiting around always be true
SAVE A LITTLE FOR ME
SAVE A LITTLE FOR ME, save a little for you
If you change your mind like you sometimes do,
I'll be waiting around, always be true
Save a little for me, save a little for you
Save a little for you, save a little for you
A little for me, a little for you

Colorado

We started out in Dallas
And we took a northern route
Got all the way through Denver
Before the water pump went out
With only twenty bucks between us
We knew our luck was at an end
It's lonely when you're far from home
Without family or friends

Colorado wasn't supposed to happen
But it did--here we are
We hitched a ride on a star to Montana
We didn't get quiet that far
I bought a second-hand pickup truck
I shoulda rented a brand new car
Colorado wasn't supposed to happen
But it did--here we are

I was too damn proud to ask for help
Daddy laughed at my old truck
If you think that thing'll reach Montana
You're dumber than a hockey puck
We lived a month in that old rust bucket
Working odd jobs that we found
Bought a brand new water pump
And was soon Montana-bound

But your roots had started growing
And you didn't want to roam
Cause Denver and Colorado
Were beginning to feel like home

On the northern edge of Denver
We decided to make our stand
We both got jobs, bought a house
And became big Bronco fans
Brewing beer in Fort Collins
I coulda done a whole lot worse
Had we made it to Montana
That might have been a curse

Colorado wasn't supposed to happen
But it did--here we are
We hitched a ride on a star to Montana
Didn't get quiet that far
I bought a second-hand pickup truck
Shoulda rented a brand new car
Colorado wasn't supposed to happen
But it did--here we are
Colorado wasn't supposed to happen
But it did--here we are

Blue Collar Man

(Verse 1)
I'm a blue-collar man
In a white-collar world
And I can't buy her love
With diamonds and pearls
I can barely get by
But I'll---give it a whirl
If this blue-collar man
Has his blue-collar girl

(Verse 2)
My blue-collar girl
She could have so much more
In the---white-collar world
She lived in before
But she chose my Chevy pickup truck
And we're---not exactly poor
But thank God she's working part time
Down at the Dollar Store

(Chorus)
A blue-collar man
Must fight for what he's got
And he can't go pretending
To be what he is not
Your collar might be white
But don't ever put me down
Or ever make me feel
Like a---blue-collar clown

(Verse 3)
Our house is on a dead end street
And on the wrong side of the tracks
And I wonder if she looks around
And longs for what she lacks
But she says she has the world
In the palm of her hand
If this---blue-collar girl
Has her blue-collar man

(chorus)
A blue-collar man
Must fight for what he's got
And he can't go pretending
To be what he is not
Your collar might be white
But don't ever put me down
Or ever make me feel
Like a---blue-collar clown


I warned you once
I'm not gonna warn you twice
You white-collar clown


(Verse 1)
I'm a blue-collar man
In a---white-collar world
And I can't buy her love
With---diamonds and pearls
I can barely get by
But I'll---give it a whirl
If this blue-collar man
Has his---blue-collar girl
If this blue-collar man
Has his blue-collar girl

Little Miss T

Verse 1
I'm acting perfectly normal when she walks into the room
Forget about perfectly normal after my heart goes boom
Is it any wonder there's little hope for me
Look out here comes trouble, she makes a fool of me

(Chorus)
Here comes trouble, she really gets to me
Here comes trouble, I call her Little Miss T
Got me going round in circles, sting me like a honey bee
Here comes trouble, with a capital T
Verse 2
I'm sittin' at a traffic light, she pulls up in her car
She bats those baby blues at me and all I see is stars
She says you wanna have a picnic underneath that cherry tree
Look out here comes trouble, she makes a fool of me
(Repeat Chorus)
(Bridge)
I know I have to have that girl, I gotta take control
I can't just keep on a wishin' until I'm too damn old

Verse 3 
I walk into the grocery as she's pushin' out her cart
With one hello she's a pushin' every button to my heart
I said I have a new recipe, tell you what I'm a gonna do
I'll start with a cup of trouble, then I'll add 2 scoops of you
(Final Chorus)
Here comes trouble, she really gets to me
Here comes trouble, I call her Little Miss T
Got me going round in circles, sting me like a honey bee
Here comes trouble with a capital T
Here comes trouble with a capital T

(Spoken)

Man, I'm in trouble now ...deep, deep trouble

Sonic or Dairy Queen

Would you like to go out next Friday
To the Sonic or the Dairy Queen
I swear you gotta be the prettiest
Gal I ever seen
I'll buy you a footlong hotdog
And a cup of soft serve ice cream
Would you like to go out next Friday
To the Sonic or Dairy Queen

You moved into the neighborhood
And I'll never be the same
I hope that I'm the tiger
You're planning to trap and train
I know you're from the city
So I might need to explain
Don't drink your malt too quickly
Or it's gonna freeze your brain

Would you like to go out next Friday
To the Sonic or the Dairy Queen
I swear you gotta be the prettiest
Gal I ever seen
I'll buy you a footlong hotdog
And a cup of soft serve ice cream
Would you like to go out next Friday
To the Sonic or Dairy Queen

I'll pick you up at seven
And I swear I won't be late
I've already determined
A certain cheeseburger's fate
Tater tots and french fries
Will make our meal complete
And if you eat your hot dog
You're gonna get something sweet

Would you like to go out next Friday
To the Sonic or the Dairy Queen
I swear you gotta be the prettiest
Gal I ever seen
I'll buy you a footlong hotdog
And a cup of soft serve ice cream
Would you like to go out next Friday
To the Sonic or Dairy Queen

There's nothing I like better
Than soft serve in a cup
With little plastic spoons
And straws to suck it up
Dairy Queen and Sonic
Serve food that keeps you thin
I'll pick you up next Friday
And do it all over again

Would you like to go out next Friday
To the Sonic or the Dairy Queen
I swear you gotta be the prettiest
Gal I ever seen
I'll buy you a footlong hotdog
And a cup of soft serve ice cream
Would you like to go out next Friday
To the Sonic or Dairy Queen
