Everybody Loves You by Arthur Winer © 2013 by Arthur Winer Canaveral Skies Music (ASCAP) Everybody thinks when they're buying you drinks That you're their favorite girl Ask you to dance but they don't stand a chance To be one part of your whole world 'cause Everybody loves you, they all ask you to dance Everybody loves you, but they don't stand a — Now, we've got our wings, we are flying (Nothing keeps us down) We've cut the binding strings that keep us Down upon the ground Maybe today if he slaves away, she will notice his charm But no tall drink or layaway mink will be enough to cause her harm

The Fall Guy by Arthur Winer © 2013 by Arthur Winer Canaveral Skies Music (ASCAP) Beautiful morning, kiss you good-bye Subway stop about a quarter to nine You go your way, I go mine I’ll see you later, I’ll see you later Concrete crumble, dusted beams Hoary tears outside the seams I saw it happen, they made it happen Now they blame it on the wrong guy They blame it on the wrong guy They blame it on the Fall Guy They just said so, why would they lie? They own the story, don’t even

First Date 03:28
First Date by Arthur Winer © 2014 Arthur Winer / Canaveral Skies Music (ASCAP) First date, cut rate. Antsy from wondering Will she, be free? Will he be charming? What’s your home town? He says from Reno. She strips for tips. He deals Casino. Drinks, dining, dancing. Winks, whining, prancing. He cops a quick feel. She hopes it’s for real First date, first date, whoa oh oh la la. First date, first date, oh ah ah na na . First date, first date. Drinks with umbrellas. She checks his pects. He tries to smell her. Should she be strong if they get along? Should the hot tub wait until the second date She’s scared, but prepared: collagen injection He’s brought (forethought) a Speedo and protection Fun, fun, fun for a girl and a boy A Trojan and Helen of Troy Love and perfume in the air Pain and Rogaine and despair

Summer Jobs 03:55
Summer Jobs by Arthur Winer © 2013 by Arthur Winer Canaveral Skies Music (ASCAP) Let’s get summer jobs, unlike all those slobs Living with Mom and Dad, air-conditioned sad. You’ll get one tending grounds, I can drive old people around It’ll only be for a while, and we can live hand to mouth in style “Wouldn’t it be great to co-habitate Then we wouldn’t have to wait at all.” We could pay the rent through summer weather, Say good night for three months and stay together I’m pretty good with my hands, Let’s build on shifting sands You wait tables, I’ll drink for free I’ll clean stables and sell the TV I’ll take a shift at Taco Hell, swim at the quarry to hide the smell You could be a StarB. barista, you could be a Sandanista And we can live on love And we can live on dreams We can sleep on incantations Instead of roses -- cheap carnations

Save Yourselves! by Arthur Winer © 2013 by Arthur Winer Canaveral Skies Music (ASCAP) Her perfect dive into the water She emerged like Neptune's daughter Soaking wet, despite a cap with flowers Cleansed and clairvoyant. She says: Save yourselves! Save yourselves! Now she sees the future and she hears the past. She feels the present, and she speaks at last. She says: The water's black, and it tastes like blood. The skies are red, and they smell like sulfur. And the nights are so long, they run together. And the trees are yellow, and the earth is cracked. So save yourselves! Save yourselves from the sinners! The world's gonna end in about ten minutes And it's not by Fire, and it's not by Flood Not by Earthquake, Tsunami, or Asteroid It's from…

On Carroll Street Words and music by Arthur Winer © 2014 Canaveral Skies Music (ASCAP) She’s bored, she’s beautiful And if there is nothing to do she’s dutiful She’s tired, maybe half-dead She may not even notice that you’re in her bed Lights shine all the time on Carroll Street (Christmas starts on Fourth of July) Garden clementines on Carroll One time burned, ten times shy She’s green, tends to forget And when he has made his play she’s soaking wet But small, behind her hazel eyes She can see through his thick disguise And when we meet It is mulled-wine sweet On Carroll
