chorus:

B. Eileen, B. Eileen

Sunshine and bananas and the coffee beans

Costa Rica es muy linda

And you know it beats this crazy scene

 

B. says Kenny's sailing off

Down to the tropics where the sun gets hot

And the fruit grows fat and sweet in the noonday sun

When he gets there he will send her

A card or a letter and she can go there

Living and loving in the noonday sun

 

chorus

 

B . and Kenny making babies

Lay 'em in the sun so they get lazy

And grow up slow and sweet like they're supposed to do

I can see them on the beaches

Picking coconuts and eating peaches

Rowing in their boats in the noonday sun

Everyone

 

chorus

 

Costa Rica sounds like fun

I'l like to visit and to run

Over the low hills in the noonday sun

Dancing with that green-eyed lady

We'd laugh so ling it would make us crazy

Learning to be free in the noonday sun

Everyone

 

chorus

Warm Summer Night (words & music by Kevin Huston)

 

mandolin, xylophone, vocals: Kevin Huston

guitar, percussion, vocals: Randy Sweet

guitar, vocals: Jeff Sweet

 

There is a full moon out tonight

And all the the stars are shining bright

And there's a warm wind playing with the leaves

And it makes me think of you and me

 

On a warm summer's night

 

The smell of wildflowers in the air

The scent of jasmine's in your hair

And now that warm wind's teasin' with the tide

And it makes me think of you and I

 

On a warm summer night

 

A firefly circling in the air

The sound of music's everywhere

And you're the one that I adore

Just like the ocean loves the shore

 

On a warm summer night

Stand On Your Own (words & music by Jeff Sweet)

 

guitar, organ, synthesizer, vocals: Jeff Sweet

bass, vocals: Kevin Huston

drums, vocals: Randy Sweet

guitar solos: Eric Drake

 

Little woman driving off to school

The best dressed girl in your class

Mama cooks your meals and picks up your room

Daddy buys your gas

 

You copy your best friend's homework

While you watch your MTV

The lesson you've learned is you don't have to earn

When the good things in life are free

 

CHORUS:

The world doesn't owe you a living

You've got to make it alone

Be a strong woman, be a strong man

You've got to stand on your own

 

Hey, dude, hanging out with your friends

You've got to put on a show

You act so tough, so cool, so rough

But underneath you know

 

You like to intimidate

You're so good at telling lies

But when I've got you one on one

You can't even look me in the eyes

 

CHORUS

 

Some people give and some people take

Some people answer a call

There are those who destroy and those who create

And those who do nothing at all

 

What is the source of ambition?

What is the source of pride?

You've got to believe in yourself

When you look deep inside

 

CHORUS

Who's That Guy (words & music by Kevin Huston)

 

guitar, mandolin, vocals: Kevin Huston

bass, drums, vocals: Randy Sweet

guitar, synthesizer, vocals: Jeff Sweet

 

Who's that guy over there?

Staring at me in the mirror

Is that the same guy I knew?

When I was young and he was too

Who's that guy over there?

 

Who's that guy over there?

He's gained some weight and lost some hair

Is that the same young buck

Who used to drive that old pickup truck?

Who's that guy over there?

 

It's been a long time comin'

It's gonna be a long time gone

So I'll just keep on a'runnin'

I've got to keep keepin' on

 

'Cause me and that guy over there

We ain't ready for no rocking chair

You know we've got a few more miles

Probably have to stand a few more trials

Me and that guy over there

Tell Me So (words & music by Randy Sweet)

 

accoustic guitar, drums, vocals: Randy Sweet

bass, vocals: Kevin Huston

electric guitars, organ, vocals: Jeff Sweet

 

Baby when you say those things

I just want to be with you

You can tell me anything

I'll be your fool

 

C'mon let's dance tonight

Put on something nice and slow

If you think that it's all right

Tell me so

 

To think after all these years

I could finally find someone

Who would show me all my fears

Could be such fun

 

Laughing with you baby now

Don't know what I did before

I just hope you never leave me

All alone (don't leave me baby)

 

C'mon let's dance tonight

Put on something sweet and low

If you think that it's all right

Tell me so

 

Baby, please tell me so

Baby, please tell me so

Baby, please tell me

 

Baby, please tell me so

Baby, please tell me so

Baby, please tell me

 

I just love your attitude

Playing life like it's a game

Taking only sunshine

While the clouds remain

 

Up among the mountaintops

Looking down on life below

Sometimes I just have to catch my breath

And hope (hope for us baby)

 

C'mon let's dance tonight

Put on something nice and slow

If you think that it's all right

Tell me so

 

Baby, please tell me so

Oh baby, please tell me so

Oh baby, please tell me

 

Baby, please tell me so

Baby, please tell me so

Baby, please tell me

Please tell me

Please tell me

Fish In The Sea (words & music by Kevin Huston)

 

accoustic & electric guitars, vocals: Kevin Huston

bass, drums, vocals: Randy Sweet

electric guitar, organ, vocals: Jeff Sweet

 

When I was just a young boy, my father told me

Son don't you worry, there's lots of fish in the sea

When me and my little lady, when we fell apart

I thought I would die from a broken heart

 

But now I understand the words he said to me

When he said, "Son don't you worry, there's lots of fish in the sea"

 

Now I'm a little older, with a son of my own

There might come a time when we're talking all alone

I'll tell him all the things like my daddy told me

But if he's feeling down he might not see

 

He's got to learn himself that's the way its got to be

But someday he'll know there's lots of fish in the sea

 

You've got to live and learn but the lessons aren't for free

We've got to pay our dues, we've got to pay the fee

But once we've gone through it, come out the other side

We're gonna be stronger after taking the ride

 

So if you're feeling lonely and you need some company

Jump into my boat, there's lots of fish in the sea

Jessie Lateer (words & music by Randy Sweet)

 

accoustic guitar, vocals: Randy Sweet

mandolin, vocals: Kevin Huston

percussion, organ, synthesizer, vocals: Jeff Sweet

vocals: Kathy Blake

 

Everything is whizzing by at nineties speed and faster

I can barely keep a hold

But she takes the best of every moment that has passed her

And she gives it back tenfold

 

chorus:

She paints barns from memory

Just reaches back and grabs part of the past

She paints barns from memory

And when I think of her I smile

 

As I watch the world go spinning on with all its troubles

When it brings me to my knees

Then I think of her sitting painting in the mountains

And her spirit comforts me

 

chorus

 

And when I think of her I see her painting at the window

And when I think of her I see her dancing at the wedding

And when I think of her I see her living like wildflowers

And when I think of her I smile

 

chorus

 

Knowing that she's there living near the silver lake

Painting portraits from her past

Makes it easier for me to do this thing called living

With my smile still intact

 

chorus

 

And when I think of her I smile

And when I think of her from memory

Little Honey (words & music by Jeff Sweet)

 

guitars, percussion, vocals: Jeff Sweet

bass, vocals: Kevin Huston

conga, vocals: Randy Sweet

 

Hey, little honey

Don't go away, my little honey

 

I know it's getting late

But let's hesitate, my little honey

It's dark and stormy outside

But here with you by my side it feels sunny

 

Won't you stay just a little while?

You know I love to see you smile

And I love you, yeah I love you (yes I do), and I love you

 

Here in the firelight

With you it feels so right, my little honey

Don't need the TV show

Don't need the radio, we don't need money

 

Won't you stay just a little while?

You know I love to see you smile

And I love you, yeah I love you (yes I do), and I love you

 

Hey, little honey

Don't go away, my little honey

 

Hey, little honey

Don't go away, my little honey

Surf's Up In Barstow (words & music by Doug Lang, John Koscielski and Randy Sweet)

 

drums, vocals: Randy Sweet

bass, vocals: Kevin Huston

guitar, keyboards, vocals: Jeff Sweet

 

Surf's up in Barstow

Wax up your surfboards

After the earthquake

We'll be hangin' ten

(repeat)

 

Barstow Beach is really neat

Hinkley Beach is really rad

Lenwood, Yermo, Newberry Springs

Calico Cove is really cool

 

Surf's up in Barstow

Wax up your surfboards

After the earthquake

We'll be hangin' ten

(repeat)

 

When you feel that seismic shock

And the coast begins to rock

Shaking off the Richter scale

We'll be riding on that wave

 

Surf's up in Barstow

Wax up your surfboards

Ride the tsunami

We'll be hangin' ten

(repeat)

 

Barstow Beach is really neat

Hinkley Beach is really rad

Lenwood, Yermo, Newberry Springs

Calico Cove is really cool

 

Surf's up in Barstow

Wax up your surfboards

After the earthquake

We'll be hangin' ten

(repeat)

Follow Your Heart (words & music by Jeff Sweet)

 

guitars, piano, synthesizer, vocals: Jeff Sweet

vocals: Kevin Huston

vocals: Randy Sweet

 

When you're troubled, when you're blue

There's one thing that's always true

Where is the best place for you to confide?

The answer, my friend, is deep inside

 

When you really need advice

Don't rely on rolling dice

It's never too late for you to learn

For those decisions on which your life will turn

 

FOLLOW YOUR HEART...

 

It won't help to look above

When you're seeking the truth in life and love

When you have to make a crucial choice

Listen to your inner voice

 

FOLLOW YOUR HEART...

 

Evaluate your desires

Stay away from greed

Try to be the one who inspires

Make us proud to follow your lead

 

Pleasure or pain, black or white

Lose or win, wrong or right

When you feel surrounded by extremes

Focus on your sincerest dreams

 

FOLLOW YOUR HEART...
