Lyrics

Albert Einstein
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Part of me wants to be just like Albert
Just like Albert
Albert Einstein
If I only had the smarts
If I only had the brain
I’d think a million thoughts
That would bollix the mind
Change the way the future will remember mankind
Leave Sir Isaac Newton and his apple far behind
And drive my fellow physicists insane
Oh part of me wants to be just like Albert
Just like Albert
Albert Einstein

Yeah part of me wants to be just like Albert
Wise old Albert
Albert Einstein
If I only had the gift
Of a two hundred IQ
I’d change a lot of things
Yeah I’d know just what to do
I could 3D print my body an’ keep it up on the shelf
Take it down at night an’ have a talkin’ to myself
I might even lose all track of who was who
Yeah part of me wants to be just like Albert
My pal Albert
Albert Einstein
Yeah, I’d be known as a young savant
I’m not talkin’ no dilettante,
But the sage of quantum physics
Well I’d spend all my time
Dreaming up ‘ventions of the mind
Like zero calorie ice cream
Bicycles that can fly
Traveling on a light beam
And dogs that wouldn’t die
I’d open up a store on-line and call it
Einstein’s Designs And Inventions Of The Mind
And the world would line up at my door
Roaring “More, more,
We Want More!
More of that Einsteinian soul
Yeah, more of that Einsteinian soul!!”

So part of me wants to be just like Albert
Good ol’ Albert
Albert Einstein
If I only had the grasp
If I only had the wit
I’d stun the literati
Thinking out of the box
With my hair all out of whack and my two eccentric sox
I would stand among the giants, Oh yeah, that rocks!
And when it came to school, I’d quit!
Oh part of me wants to be just like Albert
Ooooo Albert
Albert Einstein
Oh Mr. Einstein
Can I call ya’ Albert?
We’ll be hangin’ out!
Shootin’ pool!
Workin’ equations!!
Playin’ video games!!!
Debatin’ the variances of string theory …
Cool!
Hey Albert, let’s take a break n’ go skinny dippin’
He’s my pal …

I wanna be just like Albert Einstein!

My Eyes Adored You
Music and Lyrics by Bob Crewe and Kenny Nolan

I carried your books from school
Playing make believe you’re married to me
You were fifth grade
I was sixth
When we came to be

Walking home every day
Over Barnegat Bridge and bay
Till we grew into the me and you
Who went our sep’rate ways

My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see
How I adored you
So close
So close and yet so far

Headed for city lights
Climbed the ladder up to fortune and fame
Worked my fingers to the bone
Made myself a name

Funny I seem to find
That no matter how the years unwind
Still I reminisce ‘bout the girl I miss
And the love I left behind

How my eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see
How I adored you
So close
So close and yet so far

My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see
How I adored you
So close
So close and yet so far

Funny how I seem to find
That no matter how the years unwind
Still I reminisce ‘bout the girl I miss
And the love I left behind

My eyes adored you
My eyes adored you
My eyes adored you

Inventions

Music by Peter Link
Lyrics by Peter Link and Noah Marlowe

Inventions!
I’d like to take a moment
And share with you my musings
And reflections on Inventions

Inventions!
I have a new idea
Nearly every day
A brilliant panacea for the problems of this world
That would blow them all away

So please stop and give a listen
Cuz you don’t know what you’ve been missin’
An’ before you start dismissin’ me
Ya’ might just oughta think about
The wondrous possibilities of life

Choir Shouts
Here’s ten!
And the girls sing …
Number 1 23
Noah
An Invention that does my homework,
Yet I still retain
The concepts and their lessons in my brain

And the girls sing again …
Number 2

Noah

An Invention where I could use The Force
For good instead of evil
And bring joy to all the people in my life

Number 3

An Invention for the phone
When you call somebody more than once,
There’s a hand that taps them on the shoulder
Over and over
Until they pick up!
Oh!
Or a food Invention with attitude
That would shrewdly take any vegetable
And turn it in to cupcakes or ice cream
(Number 4!)
I’d scream!
I’d come unglued!!
I’d be overcome with gratitude,
Dude!!!

And Number 5?

An all-day chocolate sucker
That would keep us all alive
With time release capsules
That would give us all a laugh
Every hour and a half
Till we saw the light
And the joy of being alive
It’s how we’ll survive
Gimme five! 23
You got it! (Slap!)
Instrumental Break
We now break down into a totally silly instrumental replete with crowds of
laughing people – insane joy and celebration!

Inventions!
Now if you’re getting’ weary
I’ve got five more ideas
Guaranteed to knock yer socks off

Inventions!
The brainchilds of an egghead>>
That will blow your mind
The kind of innovations that you just can’t do without>>
And that revolutionize mankind

So ya’ gotta stop and give a listen
Cuz you don’t know what you’ve been missin’
An’ before you start dismissin’ me
Ya’ might just oughta think about
The wondrous possibilities of life

And the girls sing …
Number 6

Noah

An Invention that when you’re steppin’
Into a swimming pool
It adjusts the water’s temper’ture from cold to cool
From warm to hot
And the girls sing …
Say what?
Noah

Yeah, just the way you like it
Right there in a flash
Right on the spot!
And the girls sing …
I like it
I like it
I like it!
And the girls SHOUT …

Seven!!!
Noah

An Invention where I could reach my arm
Right in to outer space
And play Quidditch with the planets and the stars
And the girls sing …
And galaxies!
Noah
And nebulae!

We like it!

A universe of zoomin’ broomsticks…

Noah (finishes)
…Right here in my room
An’ while I’m at it
Time would slow down
Till the world around me
Just stood still
And the girls sing …
We like it
We like it!

Now on to Number eight!
Noah
An Invention for the world
That would turn all cars into bumper cars
So that driving off to work each a’ morning
Morning after morning
Would just plain be more fun!
And the girls sing …
Uh huh
Uh huh …
It’s kinda dumb
But we like it
Car Crash
Now Divine Number nine!
Noah
Lemon bread!

Another food invention with attitude
Imagine waking up every morning to
A plate piled high with luscious lemon toast
With little bits of lemon rind
Swimmin’ in the butter

Oh brother …

Now just lay on some jam

I am
Oh yes I am …

Or dust it with a bit of brown sugar

Oh baby, now ya’ got me goin’
And I like it ooo

I’d scream!
I’d come unglued!!
I’d be overcome with gratitude,
Dude!!!

Looks like we’ve come to the end
Cuz it’s time for Number ten

I’d change a lot of things
But my fav’rite one is this
It’ll prob’ly sell a million
And it just can’t miss
It’ll fix yer problems too
Like those bullies back at school

So show a little muscle
And pretend you’re kinda cool>>>
When the yoyos start their bluster
An’ start actin’ like the fool
My fav’rite one is this
It just starts changin’ all the rules
It’s a way of staying alive
It’s how I survive!

Gimme five!

So when them sleazy little creeps
Start to play their little game
Just pick up one of my Bully Bashers
Smile and take aim
Just push the red button
And out of thin air
They suddenly gets a wedgie
And are hung up from their underwear

We love it
Just tell those kids to shove it
And leave ‘em hangin’ there in mid-air

Inventions
Inventions
Oh the wondrous possibilities of life

Inventions
Inventions
Yeah the wondrous possibilities of life

Inventions
Inventions
And the wondrous possibilities of life!

If This Ain’t Love
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

She noticed me
She looked at me
She smiled at me
Everything was more than I ever dreamed

And when I turned
To walk away
I could not feel the floor
Under my feet
All I could think was
Oh God
Why couldn’t I just say “Hello”

She noticed me
She looked at me
She smiled at me
Everything had changed in a blink of time

There in the hallway
Just before math class
Surrounded by a thousand kids
All coming and going
I think I fell in love
Yeah I fell in love
Oh yeah
And oh baby if this ain’t love
What is?

Then there she was
Right after school
So I asked her if I …
Might walk her home
“Maybe tomorrow”
And with just two words she was gone
So why couldn’t I just say “Goodbye”

But she noticed me
How she looked at me
She smiled at me
And suddenly my world was all upside down

There on the sidewalk
Losing my marbles
Surrounded by a million thoughts
All coming and going
I fell in love again
Yeah I fell in love
Oh yeah
An’ oh baby if this ain’t love
What is?
Oh baby if this ain’t love
What is?

She’s Leaving Home
Music and Lyrics by John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Wednesday morning at five o’clock
As the day begins
Silently closing her bedroom door
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen
Clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside she is free

She
We gave her most of our lives
Is leaving
Sacrificed most of our lives
Home
We gave her everything money could buy
She’s leaving home
After living alone
For so many years
Bye, bye

Father snores as his wife gets in
To her dressing gown
Picks up the letter that’s lying there
Standing alone at the top of the stairs
She breaks down
And cries to her husband
“Daddy, our baby’s gone”
“Why would she treat us so thoughtlessly
How could she do this to me?”

She
We never thought of ourselves
Is leaving
Never a thought for ourselves
Home
We’ve struggled hard all our lives to get by
She’s leaving home
After living alone
For so many years
She’s leaving home
Bye, bye

Friday morning at nine o’clock
She is far away
Waiting to keep the appointment she made
Meeting a man from the motor trade

She
What did we do that was wrong
Is leaving
We didn’t know it was wrong
Home
Fun is the one thing that money can’t buy
Something inside
That was always denied
For so many years
She’s leaving home
Bye, bye
Bye bye
Bye, bye

Welcome To The Revolution
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

People!
We got a problem here!
Some of us are still livin’ in the dark ages
We got to grow up!
Are you gonna stand for this?

I’ve been wonderin’
What’s it all for
When those in power
Abuse that power so
Battered wives
Police brutality
Child abuse
War
We ain’t gonna stand for it no more
No we ain’t gonna stand for it no more

Welcome to the revolution
Welcome to the revolution
Welcome to the revolution
We’re gonna have a good time

There’s sweeping change
In the air
An’ it’s about time
Time for human evolution
Time to make a resolution
Time to speak up
Time to roar!
So welcome to the revolution
Welcome to the revolution!
Welcome to the revolution!!
We’re gonna have a good time
It’s a revolution of the spirit
It’s a revolution of the heart
It’s the evolution of the music
To a higher work of art
And a relentless technology
Meets the soul of creation
And rips a hole in the sky
And a mind on fire is born again
Yes a mind on fire is born
For the age of change draws nigh
Crowd Joins
So welcome to the revolution
Welcome to the revolution
Welcome to the revolution
We’re gonna have a good time

It’s a revolution of the spirit
It’s a revolution of the heart
It’s the evolution of the music
To a higher work of art
And a relentless technology
Meets the soul of creation
And rips a hole in the sky
And a mind on fire is born again
Yes a mind on fire is born
For the age of change draws nigh
So people!
As you go
So goes the world
Ya’ better be good

Cuz it’s a time for revolution
A time for revolution
A time for revolution
An’ it starts with you

So welcome to the revolution
Welcome to the revolution!
Welcome to the revolution!!
We’re gonna have a good time

Welcome to the revolution
Welcome to the revolution!
Welcome to the revolution!!
We’re gonna have a good time

Welcome to the revolution!
Welcome to the revolution!
Welcome to the revolution!

We’re gonna have a good time
We’re gonna have a good time
We’re gonna have a good time!

Time In A Bottle
Music and Lyrics by Jim Croce
Additional Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

Time
Tapping on my window pane
Telling me to hurry up and grow old

But if I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save ev’ry day
Til’ eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save ev’ry day
Like a treasure and then again
I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them

I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with

Time is tapping on my window pane
Telling me to hurry up
Hurry up and grow old
Stealing ev’ry precious moment
Like a thief in the night

But if I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the mem’ry of
How they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them

And oh, don’t you know
That I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go through time with

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save ev’ry day
Til’ eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you
With you
You
You

If I could save time in a bottle
I’d spend all my moments with you
You
You
You
