VERSE 1 I got a friend his name is Bob. I said Bob, "there's something you already know, Sometimes you have to let things go, When someone tries to wind you up, Wind you up like a jumping frog". VERSE 2 A man tried to take Bob's woman, And that man he had it comin'. But Bob's pretty wife sent him packin'. They'll go home and he'll still be lookin'. So Bob, i said, "sometimes you got to let things go, When someone tries to wind you up, Wind you up like a jumping frog". CHORUS 1 You don't want a night in the local jail, All for the sake of someone winding up your sail. You don't want a night in the local jail, When someone winds you up like a jumping frog. VERSE 3 That man went but he came back to our bar - to find us, he didn't have to look far. Now Bob tried to keep his cool! I've seen Bob fight before, he's no fool!

Thank you for your interest

By Peter Lastima


A road song, possibly in need of a wistful country tune. The traveller comes to yet another town, yearns to say, but knows it is their fate to keep heading on down the road. This draws upon road-trips in America years ago - small towns, motels, bars - but could apply just as well to any of the three other continents across which I have made sporadic and poorly-planned expeditions.

Vagabundenherz

By Nadine Schulze


Dieser Text handelt davon, sein Herz an einen Freiheitsliebenden verschenkt zu haben. Die Hoffnung ist sehr groß, dass sich die Person im Laufe der Zeit vielleicht ändert und sesshafter wird. Aber es kommt der Tag, an dem der Wunsch nach Freiheit wieder über die Liebe siegt. Man weiß, dass man dagegen keine Chance hat und niemanden halten kann, der dies nicht möchte.
