Butler Madness

Let me serve you gladly

I’ll polish all your glasses

Let me serve you madly

I’ll kick out all the asses

I’ll make your heavenly-muffin bed

Or I’ll leave it nice & rumpled

Which ever way you like

Spic & span or crumpled

I’ll greet guests at the door

Stay out of everybody’s way

Ask them if they want more

Pull your drapes on a sunny day

If you want to be

More or less subtler

Let me please you

As your butler!

I’ll bake you a birthday cake

Take your auntie to the lake

Messy leaves outside I’ll neatly rake

Throw your neighbors a fine & fancy fake

Your life has been too sad

I want to make you glad

I’ll never make you mad

Unless you call me “dad”

All your urgent commands

All you want & all that’s needed

All your demeaning demands

Will more or less be heeded

I won’t grumble

I’ll be humble

& help you to your feet

If ever you should stumble

If you wanna be more or less subtler

Let me please you as your butler!

Hot-Shot Guest Finally Arrives

~

Maybe it was all too much
Too much for a man to take
Everything’s bound to break
Sooner or later, sooner or later

You’re all that I can trust
Facing the darkest days
Everyone ran away
But we’re gonna stay here, we’re gonna stay here

Ahhhhhh, ahhhhh
I know you’re scared tonight
Ahhhhhh, ahhhhh
I’ll never leave your side

When it all falls, when it all falls down
I’ll be your fire when the lights go out
When there’s no one, no one else around
We’ll be two souls in a ghosttown

When the world gets cold
I’ll be your cover
Let’s just hold
Onto each other
When it all falls, when it all falls down
We’ll be two souls in a ghosttown

Tell me how we got this far
Every man for himself
Everything’s gone to hell
We gotta stay strong, we’re gonna hold on

This world has turned to dust
All we’ve got left is love
Might as well start with us
Singing a new song, something to build on

Ahhhhhh, ahhhhh
I know you’re scared tonight
Ahhhhhh, ahhhhh
I’ll never leave your side

When it all falls, when it all falls down
I’ll be your fire when the lights go out
When there’s no one, no one else around
We’ll be two souls in a ghosttown

When the world gets cold
I’ll be your cover
Let’s just hold
Onto each other
When it all falls, when it all falls down
We’ll be two souls in a ghosttown

I know we’re alright
‘Cause we’ll never be alone
In this mad mad, in this mad mad world
Even with no light
We’re gonna shine like gold
In this mad mad, in this mad mad world

When it all falls, when it all falls down
I’ll be your fire when the lights go out
When there’s no one, no one else around
We’ll be two souls in a ghosttown

When it all falls, when it all falls down
I’ll be your fire when the lights go out
When there’s no one, no one else around
We’ll be two souls in a ghosttown

When the world gets cold
I’ll be your cover
Let’s just hold
Onto each other
When it all falls, when it all falls down
We’ll be two souls in a ghosttown
When it all falls, when it all falls down
We’ll be two souls in a ghosttown
