Track Name: Heart & Soul & Rock'n'Roll
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
Track Name: Elvis Is Alive
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
Track Name: More Than You Need
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
Track Name: Jane
Jane
(Schuier, Treml/Rill)

Jane, I wanna know from where you came
Jane, hey girl, I like your style
Jane, there's something in a woman's name
hey, there's something in your smile

Oh, how I want to hold your hand
Jane, I wanna be your man

Jane, I don't wanna try in vain
Jane, I wanna take you out to dance
Jane, don't leave me standing in the rain
hey, come give me half a chance

Oh, how I want to hold your hand
Jane, I wanna be your man

Jane, Jane, Jane, don’t let me try in vain
take me by the hand, hand, I wanna be your man
Hey hey hey, Jane
Track Name: Pony On The Plains
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
Track Name: For So Long
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
Track Name: Secret Path
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
Track Name: Snuggle Up, Little One
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
