Track Name: Koshikari Rice
Koshikari Rice I won't say it again
Track Name: So Many Ways
Could you help me put you into a box?
Listen close you wanna say throw you off a cliff to land on the rocks.
Do you ever feel the need to help the needy?
I was just like my friends Identical in so many ways but now I see this likeness can no longer be.
Maybe you came here to keep silent, keep it inside.
Maybe not.
Maybe you came here to give all your secrets away,
for future's sake.
Would you help me put me into a box?
If I was not the same to me I'd help the needy.
Throw me off a cliff I might land on the rocks
Track Name: De Du La
The reward is congruent to the risk you take it's understood
The way it used to be is not the way it is
Track Name: Nothing
After an honest day's work I have nothing
Track Name: Lemon Trees
Little shrubs and shrooms and leaves
Birds about the lemon trees
Is the climbing ivy vine reaching for the sunshine?
What would it take for you and me to see that I don't care if you're here or there?
Track Name: Make Believe
Yesterday I knew a way to roam.
Well that was good but now I should go home.
Last night you said to me that you would be condition
but that's wrong
I want to believe
That you're in love with me like I am with you
If we make believe maybe it will come true.
Understand I have a plan that works.
What it involves is not to solve what works.
Last night you said to me that you would make it better.
Track Name: Your Way Out
I can't believe I don't have any money anymore

Called in a different way
Wasteful tongue don't mistake
Your way out

I've seen the new movie picture
It's a sight of you I've never seen
I'd never seen what I saw
Track Name: With A Smile And A Song
With a smile and a song
Life is just like a bright sunny day
Your care's fade away
and your heart is young

When you smile and you sing
The whole world seems to waken anew
Rejoicing with you as the song is sung

There's no use in grumbling
When raindrops come tumbling
Remember your the one who can fill the world with sunshine

When you smile and you sing
Ev'rything is in tune and it's spring and life flows along
with a smile and a song

(Snow White)
Track Name: The Christmas Song
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yule-tide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you

And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you
