Heart & Soul & Rock'n'Roll (Treml/Rill) Walking through the streets I hear a band rehearsing somewhere heart & soul & rock'n'roll, that's what I want, that's what I love And every note I hear Makes me want to hear some more heart & soul & rock'n'roll, that's what I want, that's what I love And someday soon I'll be a man and I'll be playing in a band I'll give it everything when I fulfil my dream There's a part within me yearning for a passion that is burning just like heart & soul & rock'n'roll I am gonna play all night long I am gonna sing all those songs full of heart & soul & rock'n'roll And now you're walking by my side and as I look into your eyes I get a sense of what's in store for me tonight, what I love The band will play their final set I'll take your hand and I won't look back I'll give you anything you're making my heart sing Tell me can you feel this yearning for a passion that is burning just like heart & soul & rock'n'roll Hey, my heart goes boom-ba-boom just for you, for you baby I swear I'll be true Baby you fulfil my yearning we got a passion that is burning just like heart & soul & rock'n'roll

Elvis Is Alive (Treml/Rill) Elvis is alive in Little Smalltownville where he was born before his Momma took the pill his Daddy didn't want him to end up like himself as just another guy out on the streets of Little Smalltownville Now Elvis lives at home in a two-room with his Mom it’s been a while since his Daddy up & gone Now Elvis hardly ever takes his Daddy's car out for a ride out on the streets of Little Smalltownville "Momma", one night Elvis asked, “can I come too when you go out to dance?” "How 'bout some other time?" his Momma said but that was the last time the music played in Little Smalltownville Elvis is alive in Little Smalltownville at 55 he’s still struggling to pay his bills In his Momma's eyes he's a different man, not just another guy out on the streets of Little Smalltownville

More Than You Need (Treml, Schuier/Rill) My old man never shied away from any job he was paid to do he'd come home at the end of day and then walk out real soon – to make an extra dollar He'd stay out for half the night there was always something somewhere needed to be done and although he pinched his pennies tight he'd always give me some Hey now, Daddy, can't you spare another quarter for me for what I'd like to have is still just out of reach You got more'n you need, he used to say you got more than you need, can't have everything anyway you got more'n you need, son, listen up cherish what you got or else you'll never have enough Mom was always worrying 'bout us sinkin' into debt Daddy'd wink at me and grin but sometimes he'd hang his head - real low When Mommy's health was failing her and the hospital bills were piling high He'd walk an hour each day to see her there to sit with her 'n then he'd come home cryin' Hey now, Daddy, don't you look so sad & bleak sit down and I'll fix you a sandwich, you need a bite to eat I got more'n I need, he used to say I got more'n I need, can't eat all of this anyway I just pray for Mommy to pull through I got more'n I need, son, I got you Now my Dad's been gone for many years There's roses on his grave It's been a while since I been here I have moved away - for a job I don't see Mom that often now I never find the time We never mention Dad but anyhow he's always on our minds Hey now, Daddy, how I wish that you were still around ah, but when I close my eyes, I still see you & hear that sound You got more'n you need, I hear you say more'n you need, as if you were here today be nice to Mommy, take care of her for me and remember, boy, you got more'n you need remember, son, you got more than you need

Pony On The Plains (Treml/Rill) There's a pony on the plains between two mountains that look just the same coming up the valley you'll see them right away That pony's young & full of life underneath that big blue sky and there's a reason why that pony is on my mind There's a pony on the plains and I'd like to take its place cause it is cared for by a girl so young and pure and without shame Between those mountains as the night was black I never will forget I once kissed that girl and that girl, she kissed me back There's a pony on the plains between two mountains that look just the same I got a favor to ask should you ever pass that way Would you please be so kind say hello if you don't mind to the pony & the girl that are on my mind Would you please be so kind say hello if you don't mind to the pony & the girl that I wish was mine

For So Long 03:09
For So Long (Treml/Rill) Found that picture from our first date it only feels like yesterday but I guess we look different now the mirror says so anyhow the hands of time, they keep marchin' on but you and I, we've been hangin' on for so so long We may be taking different strides but we always end up side by side I aim to never let you go and I know, girl, that you know we're each dreamin' our own dreams but together, girl, we've been trying to make them real for so so long A real long time, many things have come to pass but I'm yours and you are mine and we’re gonna make this good thing last When I'm with you I feel at home and with you I can do what I can't do on my own we've been together for so long

Secret Path 03:55
Secret Path (Schuier/Rill) They've been together so long, most times it's alright contentment has replaced a passion so wild the feeling that they used to share these days is hard to find but now & then they turn back the time With a needle and some vinyl and an old-time record player Those ol' 45s from '65 are like a secret path into her heart the songs they used to dance to, the soundtrack of their youth, never fail to make their love feel new Sometimes you move along through the everyday chores of life no loving touch, no time, and no surprise it's tedious going in the same ol’ daily grind and sometimes for no good reason you’re in the middle of a fight Then you gotta slap some vinyl on that old-time record player Those ol' 45s from '65 are like a secret path into his heart the songs they used to dance to, the soundtrack of their youth, never fail to make their love feel new Those ol' 45s from '65 are like a secret path into their hearts soul and rock'n'roll and blues, the soundtrack of their youth, never fail to make their love feel new

Snuggle Up, Little One (Treml/Rill) Sneak over, snuggle up, little one, it's cold outside I'm gonna keep you warm, make you feel alright Sneak over, snuggle up, little one, lock the door let's keep the snowman out, he can't come in no more Sneak over, snuggle up, little one, take my hand we're sitting round the fireside, the winter is our friend It's cold outside, the stars are bright sparkling in the sky The moon is looking down on you hey, did you see him smile? Sneak over, snuggle up, little one, sit with me we'll read some stories, eat some cookies, drink some tea It's cold outside, the stars are bright sparkling in the sky The moon is looking down on you hey, did you see him smile? Sneak over, snuggle up, little one, it's cold outside I'm gonna keep you warm, till you sleep tonight Come here, cuddle up, little one, it's cold outside I'm gonna sing for you till you fall asleep tonight
