Do You Believe In Magic? Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor ©2010 Wild Moose Music (BMI) (I): Joseph Smith put horses in America Two-thousand years too soon, I wonder why Claimed he translated ancient scrolls But his story’s full of holes Because when scholars found the scrolls it all turned out to be a lie I wouldn’t make this up – I’m tryin to be polite But he claimed “Indians” are Jews cursed by god to not be white And fourteen-million Mormon folks Still haven’t figured out the hoax When you refuse to reason, there’s no reason to be right. (Chorus): Do You Believe In Magic? It breaks up families, blows up buildings, and it’s tragic! You should’a learned by now that magic’s illusion You are the problem – not the solution Think it through Or shame on you Do You Believe In Magic? (II): L. Ron Hubbard said that Xenu was in charge of the stars So he brought aliens by the billions to this planet of ours He stacked ‘em in volcanoes Set a bomb and let go Now they’ll cure you of the Thetans for a-thousand-bucks-a-throw. (Chorus): (Bridge): I’m not pickin’ on the Mormons, or the Muslims Or the Catholics, Scientologists, or Jews If you believe a magic spell Or in miracles, or Hell It doesn’t really matter which crazy name you choose … (Chorus): (III) If you think I shouldn’t care – just let you run around like fools While you’re poisoning our politics and neighborhoods and schools There’s a fundamental evil at the heart of your foundation When you make somebody else responsible for your salvation (Chorus): (Tag): Do You Believe In Magic? (Do You Believe In Magic?) Do You Believe In Magic? (Do You Believe In Magic?) Do You Believe In Magic?

All-American Line Dance Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor ©2010 Wild Moose Music (BMI) (I): Weekday mornings, you can find us at work The farmer, the teacher, the trucker, and clerk While the rich get richer, we work like fools We’re spinnin’ our wheels, because we don’t make the rules We wouldn’t change it, if we had the chance We’d do The All-American Line Dance. (Chorus): Don’t start thinkin’ Just keep drinkin’ That Kool-Aid We made Don’t examine it Just keep crammin’ it Down your throat Sing it note-for-note No matter what the season Take a stance Don’t even need a reason Just chant the trance Raise your drink – Stay in sync – Don’t think! The All-American Line Dance. (II): Saturday mornin’, we can do what we wish Yeah, we’re free – to watch TV – go to the game – or go fish We’re on a Highway to Hell – Goin’ faster and faster So we blame each other for the coming disaster We wouldn’t change it, if we had the chance We’d do The All-American Line Dance. (Chorus): (Bridge): Lean to the left - Lean to the right Stand up, sit down, fight, fight, fight Yeah, we love our freedom, we’re a sight to behold And we will fight for the right to do exactly what we’re told (Guitar Solo): (III): On Sunday mornin’ – There’s no need to search We all lined up in the pews, in Sunday best, at the church All praisin’ and a-preachin’ – Doin’ just what we should To thank the guy-in-the-sky, because we got it so good We won’t change it, when we get the chance We do The All-American Line Dance.

Girls That Got Away Music & Lyrics by Dallas Doctor ©2010 Wild Moose Music (BMI) (I): Abigail is not like the other girls - She’s kind’a hard to define She’s real; she makes me feel – But she’ll never be mine That won’t stop me lovin’ her – I don’t care if it’s wrong That won’t stop me missin’ here, when I’m gone. (II): Eboni is like a flower – with her blossom still on the vine And when she blooms, she lights up rooms – And she’ll never be mine That won’t stop me lovin’ her – That’s why I wrote this song So she’ll know, it won’t stop me missin’ here, when I’m gone. (Chorus): This one’s for The Girls That Got Away I’m not keepin’ score, but there’s more, I that I could say My runnin’ out of time – is getting closer, everyday So this one’s for The Girls That Got Away (III): Elsa is magic and beautiful – Someday, she’s gonna shine She’s so smart, she stole my heart – And she’ll never be mine That won’t stop me lovin’ her – In my heart, she’ll always belong It won’t stop me missin’ here, when I’m gone. (IV): Susan kept her promises – she let me hold her, for a time And it was good, I knew it would – But she’ll never be mine That won’t stop me lovin’ her – My whole life long It won’t stop me missin’ here, when I’m gone. (Chorus): (V): Ginger is a straight-up angel – She’s damn near divine All she wants to do is the right thing – But like me, she’s runnin’ out of time That won’t stop me lovin’ her – And god, I hope I’m wrong I’m sure gonna miss her, when she’s gone. (Chorus): (Tag): The Girls That Got Away The Girls That Got Away
