Track Name: A Fine Time
Sometimes I feel afraid
but that’s okay,
life’s that way,
Am I getting old?
Seasons change,
we all go grey.

It’s a fine time to be alive.
We got the nukes and we got our pride.
But everyday I wake up I feel something’s gonna change my world.

I guess authorities,
do their best,
as do we.
They know, better than me
about the world
that I can’t see.

It’s a fine time to be alive.
We got the nukes and they got their pride.
But everyday I wake up I feel something’s gonna change my world.

Do you remember when the world was gay?
All the people and the children played.
The sky was wide and the sun was bright.
No air pollution blocked the stars at night.
And now the water’s full of mercury
the birds and cows die of disease.
We got the TV and celebrities,
but what’s happening to you and me?

Ba Ba Ba Ba Ba

It’s a fine time to be alive.
They got the nukes and they got their pride.
And everyday I wake up I feel something’s gonna change my world.

Do you remember when the world knew peace?
There was a garden in the Middle East.
We didn’t know what was right or wrong,
we just lived for the evening song.
And now the colors tell the threats each day
and all religions will make you pay.
We got the TV and celebrities,
but what’s happening to you and me?

Ah-Oh Shoo Bop Shoo Bop, Ah-Oh Shoo Bop Shoo Bop
Track Name: Never Let You Go
It’s getting harder everyday,
no one to ease the way.
You don’t know what you're living for.

They got your back up against the wall,
So hard to face them all
You don’t know what your love is for.

I’m on your side, I got your love both day and night.
Now that you know, baby,
that I love you so.
I’m letting you know right now
I’ll never let go,
never let you go.

I’ll never let you go ...

I’ve been down there before,
got up and learned the score
I know that’s what my love is for.

I’d like to break the chain
and free our love again
I know that’s what I’m living for.

I’m on your side, I got your love both day and night.
Now that you know, baby,
that I love you so.
I’m letting you know right now
I’ll never let go,
never let you go.

I’ll never let you go

Track Name: We're Gonna Make It
I love that girl oh me oh my
I love the way she makes me smile.
And every day is something new
but we’re together and that makes two.

We’re gonna make it.
I love that girl,
I love that girl
We’re gonna make it,

I love that girl oh me oh my
and every morning we say hi
and talk about the things we like
‘cause that’s the way for her and I

We’re gonna make it,
I love that girl,
I love that girl
We’re gonna make it,

Love that girl, love that man
love the world and love your land
love your mom and love your dad
love the kids and all the lads

Every day something is strange
something is changed.
But if we are wise,
we’ll realize what remains. Yep!

We’re gonna make it.
I love that girl,
I love that girl
We’re gonna make it,
Love that girl,
love that girl
We’re gonna make it
ooh-ooh oh yeah
