Track Name: Ugly Spring
Oh, ugly spring, oh ugly spring
What lies, these green-grown promises you bring
How dare you show your verdant face
where lovers, forced to part, have last embraced.

Green feet upon our last
Your footprints cover fast
Our hurried farewell steps
Where love last met

Oh ugly spring, you lie
In all the greenful love you prophesy
For love has gone, has gone to war
Unable to remain as before

Green feet upon our last
Your footprints cover fast
Our hurried farewell steps
Where love last met

And I am forced to see another spring
In leafy arms, love’s prooooomises rebring

Green feet upon our last
Your footprints cover fast
Our hurried farewell steps
Where love last met
Track Name: This Rose
Yellow, like the sun, this rose is the one
I give to you, my friend, to say you can depend on me
Depend on me, depend on me
My friend you can depend on me

This black rose I give because the life you lived
Was dear to me, and in my memory, you’ll live forever
My memory, you’ll live forever in my memory.

Come walk in my garden, we will gab the day away
I’ll pick out your favorites and make you a bouquet.

This white rose is yours, because your heart is pure
Full of humility, and perfect honesty like a child
Oh like a child, like a child your heart is pure like a child

Come walk in my garden, we will gab the day away
I’ll pick out your favorites and make you a bouquet.

Red roses show devotion, my unbridled emotion
For you, my love, there is no one above, above you
Above you, above you, there’s no other I love above you.
Track Name: Power Tools
My mama asked me what I want
this year for my birthday
I smiled and said, “maybe some earrings…
and a brand new jigsaw blade”

I enjoy the company of a man, once in a while
But he better not get in my way when I’m changin’ a flat tire
No he better no get in my way, in my way…
I just need my

Power tools
My mama didn’t raise no fool
They give me the power
to bend and break your rules
And then I fix’em up just how I like ‘em…
with my power tools

Sometimes I need an extra pair of hands
to get the job done
but don't you put those hands on me,
because you’re regret it, son
No, don’t put your helpin’ hands on me
I don’t need it, I just need my

Power tools
My mama didn’t raise no fool
They give me the power
to bend and break your rules
And then I fix’em up just how I like ‘em…
with my power tools

I can stain the deck, I like to wear a pretty dress
I never break a nail, I only break a sweat
I like to feel pampered on ladies night,
But when my hands are dirty, I feel alive
They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend
But at the end of the day they just can’t contend

With my

Power tools
My mama didn’t raise no fool
They give me the power
to bend and break your rules
And then I fix’em up just how I like ‘em…
with my power tools
