Track Name: Johnny's Got To Get A Better Job
Johnny's got to get a better job,
a corner office at Montréal Trust.
But he doesn't have the skills
to bring him any further.

You'll take what they give you.
And you'll fight for what you think you'll need.

Don't let it get you down; it's just a project,
a simple idea to cripple a man,
to make him out less than no one.
But in infinite ways you're better off.

Johnny walks slowly through the turnstiles
as fifty people pass him by,
looking sad and sullen just like him
and having nowhere to go.

Lilacs, they bloom in spring
for two or three weeks—you've ought to see them.
They grow by the driveway fence
and drop and grey as they die away.

Teen year love still smells like old library text.
You're a blackmailer or my secret saviour.
A bonfire out-back will surely eat a whole house.
And time wastes what memory forgot to hold onto.

Don't worry; you'll have your day.
Track Name: The Holiday Kid
It's the kids holiday,
so stop your bickering
and let them play.

Down the wine, down the drink.
Shut your mouth,
let them get their way.

It's the kids holiday,
so stop your bickering
and let them play.

Down the wine, down the drink.
Shut your mouth,
and it'll be over quick.
Track Name: Maiden West
They say
I'm a maiden of the west
and that I've got it all.
Oh, I've got it again.

I've got legs to cradle the world
and buffed, big arms to break sorrow.
My back's broke in too many places.
But it pays to see a world full of happy faces.

I don't know if I can take it alone.
A Hollywood starlet can't take,
can't take this much burden
or hold that special space.

She just crumbles apart.

I've got legs to cradle the world
and buffed, big arms to break sorrow.
My back's broke in too many places.
But does it pay to see so many complacent faces in the crowd?

//

Baby's breath,
and lamb's wool—
snow bouquet
or borrowed fool.

Winter loves
what winter kills,
so don't let it
get its fill.

Bleak parade, give it up!
Bleak parade, just give it up!
Bleak parade, give it up
and let your lights go down.

Stormy seas
and rough waves
that they say's
the American way.

Harbour deep,
I want to let you know
that you're safe
till it passes, till it passes.

Bleak parade, give it up!
Bleak parade, just give it up!
Bleak parade, give it up
and let your lights go down.

(Wind in the West,
Wind in the East
breaking it all over.)

Bleak parade, give it up!
Bleak parade, just give it up!
Bleak parade, give it up
and let your lights go down on me.

(Wind in the West,
Wind in the East
breaking it all up.)

And let your lights go down,
and let your lights go down,
and let your lights go down,
and let your lights go down.

(Pain, it has to go.
Love, it has to go.
Friends, it has to go.
America, it has to go.)
Track Name: Silent Night
Silent night, holy night.
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon virgin
mother and child.
Sleep in heavenly peace.
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night.
Sheperds quake at the sight.
Glories stream
from heav'n afar.
Christ, the saviour, is born.
Christ, the saviour, is born.

Silent night, holy night.
Radiant beams from thy holy face
with the dawn
of redeeming grace.
Jesus at birth,
sleep in heavenly peace.
Track Name: Belle Province Belle
I miss you, little child,
like a forest misses her trees.
We drove out to the country mile
where the last houses breathe on.

Like a bird on a wire
and the burning heart on fire,
I took my clothes off,
and you said, "It's time to go."

Baby don't leave me now,
Baby don't leave me now.
I've only begun to love.

I miss you, precious child,
like a forest misses her trees.
I left a bedroom full of feelings
and I don't know what to say to you anymore.

Dust road town with one coal plant,
and a little singing bird said to me,
"Believe your man and stand by him,
even if he doesn't care anymore."

Bum, bu-du-da-dum,
Bum, bu-du-da-dum...

Baby, I won't leave you now,
Baby, I won't leave you now.
I've only begun to love,
and you've only begun to love.

Happy Holidays!
