Track Name: As the Crow Flies
it’s not nice and neat don’t go down mainstreet
or bother with the boulevard on blacktop two miles
don’t take a left on gravel with sun in your eyes
you’ve got love as the crow flies

The upcoming exhibit of Quaker quilts
you can’t wait to tell him your step has a lilt
it’s not an affair you think with a laugh
it’s just that your real life
husband doesn’t like crafts

the crow flies
the crow flies
you’ve got love as the crow flies
the crow flies
the crow flies
you've got love as the crow flies

His ornate alchemy is ionic
his messy charisma is messianic
it’s not your fault Walt is your gestalt
you’ve got love as the crow flies

so high in the sky
no traffic jams
goes wherever it wants
high in the sky
just goes wherever it wants
Track Name: Black Watch Kilt
Sorry to let you know this way
Didn’t have your number something happened today
and we couldn’t find a black watch kilt for her
so she’s wearing navy blue

I remember visiting the two of you
at Middlebrook Hall never knew what you’d be up to
after class, you both the same, dancing around to 'Your So Vain'
wearing navy blue

little Annie found her by the stairs
we think five hundred people will be there
she’ll be laid to rest at the Fort, you know the one, by the airport
wearing navy blue

we’ve looked and looked for it everywhere
a black watch kilt we know that’s what she would want to wear
but we’re running out of time, really hope she doesn’t mind
that she’s wearing navy blue
Track Name: Alice
What do you want me to do Alice,
do, Alice, do
What do you want me to do, Alice,
do, Alice, do

you want me to have some great career
Alice, some great career
then your mad I'm never here
never,

Didn’t turn out the way we thought it would
still Alice what we’ve got is good
what we've got is good
Didn’t turn out the way we thought it would
still Alice what we’ve got is good

don’t like how I take care of the kid, Alice,
I do more than my dad ever did
than my dad ever did
ever did

you’re mad that he’s just sitting in there, Alice
in his playpen he’s supposed to be practicing his violin
but he’s only nine months, maybe ten

everyone knows you’re smarter than me
you’re the one whose got that degree
you were the one who was supposed to
go light up the world
go light up the world
Track Name: Funny Voices
give me one more chance
I can be like her
good with money
quote more from the Dow
give me one more chance
I can be like her
be a mystic
quote more from the Tao

but does she talk in funny voices?
tell you your boss is an idiot?
Does she read to you from Playboy
when you’re driving on road trips?

give me one more chance
I can be like her
have people give me nicknames
such as "lyric"
give me one more chance
I can be like her
I'll take no prisoners
my battles are pyhrric

but does she talk in funny voices?
tell you your boss is an idiot?
does she read to you from Playboy
when you’re driving on road trips?

give me one more chance
I can be like her
give me one more chance
I'll get us front row seats
give me one more chance
to hear an evening of Keats

give me one more chance

does she talk in funny voices?
tell you your boss is an idiot?
does she read to you from Playboy
when you’re driving on road trips?
Track Name: My Boyfriend Is a Genius
My boyfriend oh he’s a genius

it’s hard for him to be in this world
I’m lucky just to be his girl
To be girlfriend of a genius

My boyfriend he likes me around
Because I’m funny I’m the clown
I make him laugh
I make him smile
I make him
Genius my boyfriend is a
Genius


My boyfriend his friends all revere him
It’s a thrill just to be near him
To be close by his side
To be along just for the ride
To be in circles of
Genius

My boyfriend is a
Genius

My boyfriend is sometimes unkind to me
But that’s because his mind you see
Is special
he is brilliant
he is smarter
Than everyone else
it’s hard for him
He gets so bored
to socialize is such a chore
He is different he’s unique he belongs to the minds’ elite
Cause he’s a genius

My boyfriend oh he’s a
genius
Track Name: No Questions Asked
"When the driver is hammered
and you find you're two hours away
No Questions Asked I'll come get you."
He meant to say to his son that day

He says it when he visits
over and over until dark
its pretty there where he lays down flowers
so pretty you'd think that you were in a park

No questions asked
No questions asked
No questions asked
No questions asked

he says it all the time now
under his breath again and again
if you're walking by you would swear
you would swear that you could hear him say
No questions asked
No questions asked
No questions asked
No questions asked

Friday evenings round town now
teenagers all roll their eyes
fathers lay the law down
and mothers start to cry
