Overnight Sensation (Hit Record)

Well I know it sounds funny
But I'm not in it for the money, no
I don't need no reputation
And I'm not in it for the show

I just want a hit record, yeah
Wanna hear it on the radio
Want a big hit record, yeah
One that everybody's got to know

Well if the program director don't pull it
It's time to get back the bullet
So bring the group down to the station
You're gonna be an overnight sensation

I've been tryin' to write the lyric
Non-offensive but satiric too
And if you put it in the A-slot
It's just got to make a mint for you

I fit those words to a good melody
Amazing how success has been ignoring me
So long
I use my bread making demos all day
Writing in the night while in my head I hear
The record play
Hear it play

Hit record, yeah
Wanna hit record, yeah
Wanna hit record, yeah (number one)


Party's Over

When we started it was a lot of fun
And the times we had I'll never forget
But now I'm older and wiser and a bit of a miser
And it's crazy but I don't want to quit

Ain't it a shame, the party's over
Yeah, we couldn't keep foolin' around
Ain't it a shame, the party's over
Yeah, we got to keep our feet on the ground

Broken-hearted, it ain't a lot of fun
Though I have to I can never forget
And so I'm older and brighter and a bad criticizer
And I'm crazy but I don't give a shit

My old lady don't see a lot of love
But my guitar, I give it all I can get
So if performing and writing and party all night
And call me crazy, but I ain't gonna quit

The party's over
(There are things to realize)
The party's over
Yeah, I'm crazy but I don't give a shit
The party's over


Rose Coloured Glasses

I'm an ivory tower boy
Never quite put down the toys
I always made the best of them all
I see only sunny skies
With the world in my eyes
I never seem to find the crack or the fault

I see it all through rose-coloured glasses
And I only see what matters to me
I see you all through rose-coloured glasses, yeah
The one that I chose
Is coloured rose

It's a funny sort of haze
All full of dreams of yesterdays
And the dreams are so real you could cry
And you know the grass is green
On the side you've never seen
And the thought is what helps you get by

Chorus

As I grow a little more
And wonder what this all is for
And the brass ring is slipping away
I will keep the glasses near
Maybe shed a quiet tear
Maybe smile inside as I say

I see it all through rose-coloured glasses
And I only see what matters to me
I see you all through rose-coloured glasses, yeah
The one that I chose
Is coloured


Cruisin' Music

Get up in the morning, check out the weather
If it looks like sun I get my things together
Throw some cutoffs on, grab my tank top and tennies now
And head for the beach

Well, I'm drivin' down the highway losin' all my patience
Punchin' all the buttons tryin' to find a station
With a screamin' jock turnin' out my daily ration of

(Cruisin' music, sure good music)
(Cruisin' music, sure good music)
To put the fun back in summertime
I need some cruisin' music
To make everything all right

Well I'm flyin' down the freeway, floatin'[?] out of breath
Got my windows rolled down in the hot summer weather
With my radio up loud, nothin' makes me feel better
Than some good rock 'n' roll (good, good good rock 'n' roll)

Those suntanned girls are lookin' out of sight
And to a beach-drenched chick we'd never get uptight
'Cause when the sun goes down we'll be dancin' through the night
and singin'

It's time you heard some happy music
God knows this world could really use a little sunshine
So won't you make mine
Yeah, you know I need some more of that

(Cruisin' music, sure good music)
(Cruisin' music, sure good music)
To put the fun back in summertime
I need some cruisin' music
To make everything all right


Starting Over

Used to feel so very optimistic
Till she said goodbye
Never thought a love like ours could die
Told myself I'd never love another
All I want is friends
But when we met, I felt it all again

Though I am starting over under cloudy skies
I say hello to love I'm seeing through
different eyes
And if I had a chance
To make one wish
And know it would come true
I'd start all over with you

Every evening, I would watch the sunset
End another day
Let the night time wash my blues away
Buried my romantic inclination
Deep inside of me
Till I fell for you immoderately

I remember all the good times
And the bad times spent together
Why remember all the old times
When the new times look
Much better
