1. Gather around, you children.
And we will lose that evil spirit
Called the voodoo.

Till she sees the mistake she has made?

I know that, but can love buy me money?
They said so on TV.

Cry out when they're betrayed

and golden rivers flow.
This way will I go.
They were right, I was wrong.
True love didn't last long.
9. Used to work on Mr. Finley's farm

Someone to love,
Someone like you.

And good's bad today,
And black's white today,

And the storm that I thought would blow over
Clouds the light of the love that I found -"Fool in the Rain" by Led Zeppelin (stsisyphus)
