1. The Ride
 
There you were hiding behind your failin’ pulse
Take my hand darlin’ I’ll take you somewhere else
Where the road drifts away from the right
If you’re willing to take the ride
 
You can’t save a soul that’s already lost
When you’re dreams don’t come true faith’s the cost
There ain’t no use in waiting around to be satisfied
Are you willing to take the ride
 
I’ve seen the way your dreams have betrayed you
Soon it’ll be okay
I know what’s like to live with pain tucked away
Hidden in dirty secrets that become buried deep inside
Until you find yourself scream them into the night
 
So darlin’ get in my car, together we can run away
I don’t plan to spend my life playin’ these dirty games
My gas tank is low but I won’t be denied
Cause I’m willing to take the ride
 
So darlin’ get in my car, together we can run away
I don’t plan to spend my life playin’ these dirty games
My gas tank is empty but I won’t be denied
Cause I’m willing to take the ride
 
 
2. Mary Lou
 
In the east where shadows are bright
In the west where the sun rests at night
She tempts me by playing with her hair
She smiles knowing how much I stare
What drives her to tease me
What could she ever see in me
 
Mary Lou
There’s no one like you
Mary Lou
There’s no one like you
And there’s nothing left to say
My imagination takes me away
 
The arcades alive in the distance
The time is just right for stealin’ a kiss
There she is lying just out of reach
With the stars and the moon at her feet
Why does she haunt me
Like a siren of the sea
 
Mary Lou
There’s no one like you
Mary Lou
There’s no one like you
Though the night is soon to fall
Still I beckon to her call
 
Everywhere I turn I can’t escape
Please kiss me before it’s too late
 
Mary Lou
There’s no one like you
Mary Lou
There’s no one like you
In just a blink of an eye
I will steal you and you’ll be mine
 
Mary Lou
There’s no one like you
Mary Lou
There’s no one like you
 
3. Surrender to the Heart
 
I got five bucks in my pocket
And the rain is tumblin’ down
But the sun’s still shinnin’ on me
‘Cause my baby’s waiting ‘cross town
Tonight, I won’t worry about nothin’ no, no, no
Cause tonight she’s gonna give me all her lovin’
And surrender to the heart
 
She’s got sweet legs, she wraps them around me
And a kiss that’s as sweet as candy
Baby let your tenderness surround me
Her love can save a poor man from poverty
Hold me close, and never let me go no, no, no, no, no, no
I love you baby more than you’ll ever know
So surrender to the heart
 
So take my hand as we move forward in our lives
Let me give you the love you desire
We can own this day with just one sweet kiss
A kiss that sets my soul on fire
You’re love darlin’ has brought me into the light yes, yes
All you need to do is let me in your life
And surrender to the heart
 
Surrender to the heart
Surrender to the heart
Surrender to the heart
Surrender to the heart
 
4. Little Queenie
 
Just another Friday
‘Bout seven o’clock
I’m headin’ down to the club
And I’m a-ready to rock
 
With Little Queenie
Little Queenie
Lookin’ like a star
Jammin’ out on her guitar
 
Dressed in tight black
With diamond studs on her wrists
Well what I wouldn’t do a-baby
Just for one little kiss
 
From Little Queenie
Little Queenie
Lookin’ like a star
Jammin’ out on her guitar
Play it Queenie!
 
When she puts her hands upon me
Wraps her legs around me
Sends that kiss down on me
It sends me baby crazy
 
Little Queenie
Little Queenie
Lookin’ like a star
Jammin’ out on her guitar
 
Co’mon boys!
 
Little Queenie
Little Queenie
Little Queenie
Little Queenie
Lookin’ like a star
Jammin’ out on her guitar
 
5. Another Day
 
You lay your money down hoping you get yourself a winning hand
You get your cards baby but you ain’t seen a good hand yet
So tonight baby we’re gonna raise the stakes
Even though we know we might lose anyway
 
It’s a bad break, darlin’ I’ve busted again
It’s so sad baby, your tears lie in the palms of my hands
So tonight we will walk away
It’s a bad break, darlin’ the deck has been stacked
It’s so sad baby, we’re being dealt deuces and jacks
We’ll live to fight another day
 
Pick your horse baby, and pray he don’t get tired out
Playin’ the odds baby, ain’t safe it let’s give into your doubts
Lay it all on a long shot darlin’ try and win big
Come on baby, you gotta be in it to win
 
It’s a bad break, darlin’ I’ve busted again
It’s so sad baby, your tears lie in the palms of my hands
So tonight we will walk away
It’s a bad break, darlin’ the deck has been stacked
It’s so sad baby, we’re being dealt deuces and jacks
We’ll live to fight another day
 
Come on now honey, find love in a roll of the dice
That’s right baby, put it all down on lucky number 9
Can you feel it now, running through your veins
Just one kiss baby, and our luck can change
 
It’s a bad break, darlin’ I’ve busted again
It’s so sad baby, your tears lie in the palms of my hands
So tonight we will walk away
It’s a bad break, darlin’ the deck has been stacked
It’s so sad baby, we’re being dealt deuces and jacks
Darlin’ we will live to fight another day
Just take my hand baby, come and tempt your fate
 
6. Magical
 
She dances wild and free, floats like a lazy breeze
Across the boardwalk in June
And can’t you see, that she’s smilin’ for me
She’s a promise of the resurrection, her love’s protection
Revelations lies within
The moonlight illuminates a halo around her face
 
The way that she moves, the way that she moves
It’s magical, it’s magical
 
The waves roll up the beach and gently they meet
Her skin so soft and fair
Her smile becomes crystallized, in her diamond eyes
Her body quakes with every breath she takes
Her lips waiting for my kiss
My heart begins to race, as her hand brushes across my face
 
And tonight will be, tonight will be
Magical, so magical
 
I can feel the night beginning to pass
Waiting, wishing the moment will last
 
This morning I arose, searching for a dose
With sweat upon my brow
Now my armor has been stripped, left with pockets full of lint
Her voice, it calls from down these sacred halls
You can hear her pray to St. Jude for me
She drops to her knee and washes my feet
 
The way that she moves, the way that she moves
The way that she moves, the way that she moves
It’s magical, it’s magical
 
7. Her Love (Is Not For Sale)
 
Well maybe you think she’s cute
Maybe she thinks you’re cute too
And maybe she wants your kissin’
Hmmm just a little too soon
Yeah maybe you think she’s sweet
Maybe she thinks you’re nice
Maybe you think she’s sexy
Brother you’d better take my advice
 
The best things in life are free
Her love is all you’ll ever need
 
Her love (her love)
Is not for sale
Her love (her love)
Is not for sale
Put that credit card away
This ain’t no game she’ll play
Her love (her love)
Is not for sale
 
Oh brother you act so tough
Brother you act so cool
But thinkin’ you can buy her lovin’
Hmm it’s oh so cruel
You come on shy
Before you drive it home
It won’t be long before you
Hit up her phone
 
The worst thing is to be deceived
Into thinkin’ you’ll be redeemed
 
Her love (her love)
Is not for sale
Her love (her love)
Is not for sale
Put your wallet away
There ain’t no price you can pay
Her love (her love)
Is not for sale
 
Maybe you think
I’m sad and blue
Well buddy
I think so too
You say you can make her
Dreams come true
You’d better
Think it through
 
Maybe you think she can bought
With diamond rings
Maybe you think she wants
All your pretty things
Maybe you think that she’ll fall
For your charms
And not care about the other women
In your arms
 
My family never had that much
But we broke the bank with love
 
Her love (her love)
Is not for sale
Her love (her love)
Is not for sale
Just come at her real
Her love is a hell of a deal
Her love (her love)
Is not for sale
 
8. Now and Forever
 
Labor Day Weekend, the fireworks are all burnt out
Little darlin’ can you tell me what loves all about
Or help me figure it out
The night falls relieving the day
The lights come on along the Parkway
Everyone is on their way
 
But I will always be with you
Now and forever
 
Soon no more zeppole, no more fried Oreo
No more cotton candy down the shore
Soon it’ll be baron and cold
For tonight we’ll take a ride
And as the Ferris Wheel reaches the sky
  We’ll watch the moon direct the tide
 
And I will always be here with you
Now and forever
Now and forever
 
The kids, dancin’ the twist
Down at Jenkinsons
With the skeet ball saviors and the pin ball wiz
The young lovers
Down the beach they run
But no one cares
That tomorrow summers gone
 
The rides are all shutting down
One by one the New Yorkers are leaving town
They’re highway bound
Tomorrow they’ll all be gone
But romance will endeavor on
Like the struggle between the stars and the sun
 
And I will always love you
Now and forever
Now and forever
Now and forever

Dedicated to those displaced by Sandy.
