TIPPERARY GIRL
©Billy O'Dwyer Bob 2008

Hair of gold, eyes of blue
Prettiest girl I ever knew
Skin as white as precious pearl
She was my Tipperary Girl.

She just chanced to pass me by
Pretty as a peach and a pumpkin pie
Fresh as a flower in full bloom
Sweet as a sunny summer's afternoon.

I was smitten, got me good
Never thought that cupid could
Speared me down into my soul
Spun me 'round like a batten bowl.

Chorus
Hair of gold, eyes of blue
Prettiest girl I ever knew
Skin as white as precious pearl
She was my Tipperary Girl.

I was courting, pure romance
Asked her if she'd like to dance
Smiled at me as she took my hand
Swung me 'til I couldn't stand.

Now, she could dance and she could swing
Like a newborn lamb in spring
Up and down and to and fro
'Round and 'round and 'round we go.

Chorus
Hair of gold, eyes of blue
Prettiest girl I ever knew
Skin as white as precious pearl
She was my Tipperary Girl.

I fell heads and over heels
Heart was jumping, jigs and reels
Twitched and twittered, ill at ease
Like a hound dog scratching fleas.

Now young and foolish, old and wise
Enter love with opened eyes
Treat her right or from the start
That Tipperary Girl, she'll break your heart.

Chorus
Hair of gold, eyes of blue
Prettiest girl I ever knew
Skin as white as precious pearl
She was my Tipperary Girl.

Repeat Chorus

Track Name: BRIGHT SIDE OF THE MOON
BRIGHT SIDE OF THE MOON
©Billy O'Dwyer Bob 1999

Well, my bags are packed and I'm rolling down the road
Got this whole wide world, but I've got no fixed abode
And if you don't like what you're doing
Come on and meet me here real soon
And I'll see you on the bright side of the moon.

CHORUS
Where the breeze blows warm and the days burn long and bright
And the moon shines like the sun on a summer's night
So drop everything you're doing
Come on and meet me here real soon
And I’ll see you on the bright side of the moon.

Where I lay my head is where I make my home
Like to feel the ground beneath my weary bones
But hey it might rain soon, like some big old mad monsoon
So I'll see you on the bright side of the moon.

CHORUS

Like to free my mind and feed my feeble soul
Have to say I like to rock and like to roll
But dare I speak too soon, like some big old hot air balloon
So I'll see you on the bright side of the moon.

REPEAT CHORUS

Track Name: BABY, THAT'S THE WAY LIFE GOES
BABY, THAT'S THE WAY LIFE GOES
©Billy O'Dwyer Bob 2003

Well I woke up late one morning
'Twas early afternoon
The radio was playing some godforsaken tune
I'm staring out the window
And the wind and rain sure blows
Well everybody knows
Baby, that's the way life goes.

I feel so worn out tired
I could rest another hour
My body says 'go back to sleep'
My mind says 'take a shower'
And as I lay daydreaming
'Til the sandman softly shows
Well everybody knows, baby
That's the way life goes.

CHORUS
Baby, that's the way life goes
Baby, that's the way life goes
When you're feeling lost and lonely
And you've slipped so out of tune
You're everything's so upside down
You don't know what you're doing
You know you're just not living
But you live the life you chose
Well baby, that's the way life goes.

I walk into the kitchen for to make a cup of tea
The reflection in the window
Shows someone who looks like me
And as I stare in silence
At the shadows, my eyes close
Well everybody knows, baby, that's the way life goes.

CHORUS

I want to chase a rainbow
To run and laugh and scream
To make a wish upon a star
And follow all my dreams
I want to know I'm living
From my head down to my toes
Well everybody knows, baby, that's the way life goes.

CHORUS

Track Name: TAKE THE MOON DOWN FROM THE SKY
TAKE THE MOON DOWN FROM THE SKY
©Billy O'Dwyer Bob 2007

Now you know I never ever like to see you cry
And it always breaks my heart to see you sad
And you know that when I see you there, feeling down and blue
And there's nothing I can do, and that makes me mad.

Now you know it does the world of good to see you smile
Delight to see that twinkle in your eyes
And baby, yes it's true, I'd do anything for you
And I'd gladly take the moon down from the sky.

Now you know that I've had feelings for you so long now
So obvious the blindest man can see
And you know when it's just me and you, I get so very shy
But there's nowhere else on earth I'd rather be.

And you know that when you leave me, how I feel so all alone
It hurts so much that I could surely die
And baby, yes it's true, I'd do anything for you
And I'd gladly take the moon down from the sky.

Now you know that I've been wanting you to say that you'll be mine
And that someday soon you'll surely take my hand
And we'll buy ourselves a little house, and we'll finally settle down
With a porch and picket fence, now nothing grand.

And we'll have ourselves a little babe to bounce on daddy's knee
And we'll sit up there and watch the world go by
And baby, yes it's true, I'd do anything for you
And I'd gladly take the moon down from the sky.

So you see what I've been saying, I've been thinking for a while
And the only explanation I've come to
Is that it's simple straight arithmetic, and when you write it down,
When added, one and one makes me and you.

Now I've seen the way you look at me, and I know you sure are fine
And I'll love you 'til the very day I die
And baby, yes it's true, I'd do anything for you
And I'd gladly take the moon down from the sky
And baby, yes it's true, I'd do anything for you
And I'd gladly take the moon down from the sky!
