Lyrics
 

A GOOD CLEAN PLACE 
  
I woke up this morning only to find that I was another day older, and wiser in mind. 
There's one thing I do believe, that I have come to understand.  
That the things I value most in life was never made by man

CHORUS

Give me a good clean place, where the water and air is fresh  
I'll wear a smile upon  my face, that's what he likes to wear the best 
Give me a good clean place, a good place for you and me. 

I’ve been to the library from time to time  
A certain thought that always comes to my mind  
When man made the first machine, pollution wasn’t far behind
  
I'm looking for a good clean place.  

Now who is Mankind fooling, as we rush off to the moon?  
We should clean up our own back yard

We should do it mighty soon  

CHORUS

I love children; I’ve got two that are mine  
A responsible adult should leave something behind  
So people please hear me, hear me as I say.
  
Let's talk about this issue in a positive way.  

CHORUS

I'm thinking of a good clean place, a good clean place for you and me. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

GO WEST ON 17 

Half way across the prairies, gazing into an open sky  
My heart is pounding with anticipation, tears of joy fall from my eyes  

CHORUS

Hand in hand we will venture, what will be will be  
And all I can dream of darling, is that you’ll be with me  

Somehow we got lost in a sandstorm and neither of us could clearly see  
Reach out and offer me your hand love, I promise you can trust in me  

CHORUS

Hand in hand we will venture, what will be will be   
And all I can dream of darling, is that you’ll be with me

  
Here we are amongst the mountains and the forests, and living by the sea  
So glad we made the decision to go west on seventeen  

CHORUS

Hand in hand we will venture, what will be will be   
And all I can dream of darling, is that you’ll be with me


And all I can dream of darling, is that you’ll share your life with me

GO FLY A KITE  

CHORUS

I look forward to the time of Spring  
I look forward to the time of Spring  
Let’s think of some ideas for a song to sing
  
Let’s think of some ideas for a song to sing  

We can get together, and laugh and play  
Maybe fly a kite on a windy day  
We can get together and have some fun  
Let’s invite our Dads and Moms 
 
Let’s invite our Dads and Moms  
  
I enjoy going for a country ride  
I appreciate the time outside  
We can treat ourselves to a cold ice cream  
Lots of fun if you know what I mean
  
Lots of fun if you know what I mean  

CHORUS

I like watching all the birdies fly 
Amongst the clouds and a bright blue sky 
Or smell the blossoms on a lilac tree 
That’s what Spring it means to me
 
That’s what Spring it means to me  

CHORUS

Let's think of some ideas for a song to sing

ONLY TIME WILL TELL 

I remember when I was a little boy  
And the times I spent playing with my toys  
Reading books and imagining
  
What the future may someday bring  

Would I be a doctor, a lawyer or a policeman?  
A farmer or maybe a fireman  
I asked my Mom and Dad what they thought I’d be
  
And this is what they said, as honest as they could be  

CHORUS

Just try and do your best each and every day  
And if by chance you change your mind along the way  
That’s okay, try to be all that you can be
  
That’s okay we’ll be proud of you wait and see
  
That’s okay whatever you may choose to be  
Remember only time will tell 
 

Well the years have seemed to pass me by  
I have a wife and young son standing by my side  
When little Morgan mentioned what someday he would like to be
  
We were tickled orange we were (my favorite color), and as eager to hear as we could be
  

I want to be an astronaut, a scientist, a baseball player too  
An alligator wrestler and a lot like you  
Mom and Dad can you tell me please  
What some day you think I might turn out to be
  
This is what we said as honest as we could be  
  
CHORUS
  
I hope someday I live to see  
My children and their children  
Spending time with the wife and me  
And if by chance they mention  
What some day they would like to be
  
Well, this will be what they hear  
From Grandma and me  

CHORUS

Remember only time will tell

THE YARROW FAIR 

I remember that day like it was yesterday  
When we met at the Yarrow Fair  
When you looked at me, it came to be  

CHORUS

We fell in love at the Yarrow Fair  
We fell in love at the Yarrow Fair  

The banjos did ring, the children did sing  
Accordions filled the air  
When you danced with me, it came to be  

CHORUS 

We fell in love at the Yarrow Fair   
We fell in love at the Yarrow Fair 

I remember that day like it was yesterday  
When we met at the Yarrow Fair  
When you looked at me, it came to be  

CHORUS 

We fell in love at the Yarrow Fair   

We fell in love at the Yarrow Fair

MAGIC IN THE AIR  

In between the earth and sky   
(There's) a treasured lesson learned by you and I   
Let’s appreciate each moment that we have
   
For time can pass, quickly pass us by   

Live, love, laugh, learn and play   
Share and care in a genuine way   
If we can rise above and follow through
   
There could be magic in the air. 
 
CHORUS

I believe in magic   
Let there be magic in the air   
I believe in magic   
If we could find the time to show that we do care
   
We might just then find there’s magic in the air  
 

Let our children laugh and play   
(And) work their troubles out in their own way   
(Let's) guide them in a loving way
   
They’re our legacy; they mean so much to me.   

CHORUS

I believe in magic    
Let there be magic in the air    
I believe in magic    
If we could find the time to show that we do care
    
We might just then find there’s magic in the air  

In the air, in the air, in the air

GONE TOO FAR

Well I went to a party, I was feeling okay  
When I got home much to my dismay  
Somebody broke in and stole everything I had
  
Well I think you went too far, when you stole my old guitar  
  
CHORUS

You can steal my shoes you can steal my clothes  
You can steal anything I suppose  
But I think you went too far
  
When you stole my old guitar
  

Well, it might sound crazy, might sound absurd  
My guitar was my best friend like a beautiful bird  
For it helped me rise above when I felt so low
  
Well, I think you went too far, when you stole my old guitar  
  
CHORUS
  
Anybody says that burglary’s a victimless crime  
They should talk to me cause it blew my mind  
Well, I felt so lost, like a puppy in the rain
  
Well I think you went too far, when you stole my old guitar  

CHORUS

Well, I think you went too far  when you stole my old guitar
Well, I think you went too far when you stole my old guitar.
