A flame doesn’t dance, it survives
Flickers madly in an eye
A wave that crashes, not laps
It’s much too much, it’s so fast
It’s so fast

Waitin’ by the little front gate
And the flower boxes I made
My love it gathers in a cloud
And all at once it rains down
It’s all down

Ya know I never quite feel right
In the afternoon
And so I wait until midnight
Until I speak to you

Tell me about the blues
I tell you I got ‘em too
In these late moments tell the truth

(Solo)

Ya know I never quite feel right
In the afternoon
And so I wait until midnight
Until I speak to you

Tell me about the blues
I tell you I got ‘em too
In these late moments tell the truth (2x)

And I think that you’re angry too
And I think that you love me too

“Oddball Memories” Lyrics

Carousel

From the album “Carousel” by Full Service
(All lyrics by Hoag Kepner, c. 2013 Full Service Entertainment, LLC)

 

Everything that you read about
Everything that they say
That really comes true someday, that
That really comes true

Every time that you thought about
Every day but today
Ain’t ever no use for it anyway
Ain’t ever no use

I used to run from it
‘Til I finally learned to love how

Every day
Such an oddball memory
I used to say
We’d be someone someday
It never came but
When the rain
Falls on this tent and caves
The carousel’s
Still movin’ ’round, and ’round, for hours
Can’t forget the sound

When your tale takes another turn
When your world starts to change
Bet you didn’t plan for the revelation
Bet you didn’t plan for

Ya had a view you were used to
Ya had a view, it stayed the same
Never really had a good imagination
Never really too good

I used to run from it
‘Til I finally learned to love how

Every day
Such an oddball memory
I used to say
We’d be someone someday
It never came but
When the rain
Falls on this tent and caves
The carousel’s
Still movin’ ’round, and ’round, for hours
Can’t forget the sound

I never wanna be the best
I take my friends and you take the rest
Don’t ever wanna run the town
I make so little but I lay it down

I never wanna be the best
I take my friends and you take the rest
Don’t ever wanna run the town
I make so

I used to run from it
‘Til I finally learned to love how

I used to say
We’d be someone someday
It never came but
When the rain
Falls on this tent and caves
The carousel’s
Still movin’ ’round, and ’round, for hours
Can’t forget the sound

I never wanna be the best
I take my friends and you take the rest
Don’t ever wanna run the town
I make so little but I lay it down (2x)

Never wanna go
Take the rest

(Solo)

Don’t ever wanna run the town
I make so

‘Round, and ’round, for hours
Can’t forget the sound

“Sawdust” Lyrics

Carousel

From the album “Carousel” by Full Service
(All lyrics by Hoag Kepner, c. 2013 Full Service Entertainment, LLC)

 

The elephants are gone
The train left here this morn’
To a town 10 miles away
A circus family

What a crazy dream
Everywhere we’ve been
It don’t get better
Things don’t get better I’m finding
So let me be

We’re cast out from the show
By an ultimatum vote
Now we’re out here on our own
And we’re wonderin’ where to go

What a crazy dream
Everywhere we’ve been
It don’t get better
Things don’t get better I’m finding
So let me be

Popcorn everywhere and that sawdust on my hands
I know all about the big freak I am

(Bridge)

What a crazy dream
Everywhere we’ve been
It don’t get better
Things don’t get better I’m finding
So let me be

Popcorn everywhere and that sawdust on my hands
I know all about the big freak I am (3x)

Even the horses stare
Thinkin’ I’m really weird
And all a’ the clowns on the engine
Been howlin’ at me for years

“30th Anniversary” Lyrics

Carousel

(All lyrics by Hoag Kepner, c. 2013 Full Service Entertainment, LLC)

 

In my mind you always spin around
Down at the river in a little town

Oftentimes
I just don’t realize
And other times
I’m so desensitized
But through it all
You’ve orbited my world
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah ohhh
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah ohhh
But through it all
You’ve orbited my world

Make amends and don’t make demands and man keep in mind that we’re friends
Shake a fist and then take my hand (2x)

Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah ohhh
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah ohhh
But through it all
You’ve orbited my world

Don’t ya still
Still have those eyes for me
And don’t ya feel
Just a little bit sexy
‘Cause through it all
You’ve orbited my world

Make amends and don’t make demands and man keep in mind that we’re friends
Shake a fist and then take my hand (2x)

Very inspirational

(Bridge)

In my mind you always spin around
Down at the river in a little town

(Solo)

Make amends and don’t make demands and man keep in mind that we’re friends
Shake a fist and then take my hand

Very inspirational

Always been a natural follower
But today I’m gonna lead
Ya know today I’m gonna talk to her
Yeah today I’m gonna see

All about that pretty little lady in pink
I’ve seen how she walks but tell me how does she think
Fascinated by the pretty lady in pink
Please don’t tell

Always been a little mellow
But today I’m gonna need
A little bit of that bravado
Yeah today I’m gonna see

All about that pretty little lady in pink
I’ve seen how she walks but tell me how does she think
Fascinated by the pretty lady in pink
Please don’t tell
Please don’t tell

(Bridge)

Bap, bap, ba da ba
Bap, bap, ba da ba
Bap, bap, ba da ba
Bap

All about that pretty little lady in pink
I’ve seen how she walks but tell me how does she think
Fascinated by the pretty lady in pink
Please don’t tell

Always been a natural follower
But today I’m gonna lead

“Honeybee” lyrics

Carousel

From the album “Carousel” by Full Service
(All lyrics by Hoag Kepner, c. 2013 Full Service Entertainment, LLC)

 

It’s been a while since I’ve been in a breeze
(Really wanna feel it)
I wanna be the pollen, flutter to me
(Flutter down to me)
Forever on above and underneath

Flutter down to me
I’ll be waitin’ for my little

Honeybee
You got a funny way of stingin’ me
You just a vicious little honeybee
Buzzin’ around makin’ a fuss with me

All atop a flower petal I’ll be
(All atop a petal)
I see the hive hidin’ up in the tree
(Hidin’ in a tree)
Forever on above and underneath

Flutter down to me
I’ll be waitin’ for my little

Honeybee
You got a funny way of stingin’ me
You just a vicious little honeybee
Buzzin’ around makin’ a fuss with me

Caught a break
Met my lover
Caught a break
Met my lover by mistake
At the river
At the river

Breathes it in
Dress blowin’ lightly in the wind

(Bridge)

Flutter down to me
I’ll be waitin’ for my little

Honeybee
You got a funny way of stingin’ me
You just a vicious little honeybee
Buzzin’ around makin’ a fuss with me

Caught a break
Met my lover
Caught a break
Met my lover by mistake
At the river
At the river

Breathes it in
Dress blowin’ lightly in the wind
Breathes it in
Dress blowin’ lightly in the wind
She loves the river
She loves the river

Behind a tree
She takes cover
Behind a tree
She takes cover then sees me
She laughs forever
She laughs forever

Found me out
Bid me hither
Found me out
Bid me hither and stripped me down
And now we’re together
Such a warm wind blowin’ out there, such a warm, such a warm wind blowin’
And now we’re together
Such a warm wind blowin’ out there, such a warm, such a warm wind blowin’

Held my hand
Took me with her
Held my hand
Took me with her and we jumped in
To the river
Such a blue sky, ooh what a cool big blue sky, beautiful blue
To the river
Such a blue sky, ooh what a cool big blue sky, beautiful blue

 

“Two Old Birds” lyrics

Carousel

From the album “Carousel” by Full Service
(All lyrics by Hoag Kepner, c. 2013 Full Service Entertainment, LLC)

 

Morning hen begs for food
I take her eggs and let her run loose
What holds me holds you too
Two round three all towards you

The day they told me I was so damn tired
I give a lot and never get
I told my sister it was prob’ly goodbye then
They put her in a bag and left

Always forget about them
Often forget about them

Two old birds
Land on my knee
They’re my heart
And I’m their tree

I hate to see ‘em fly away in an instant
I hope they visit me again
But I got a feelin’ it was just a little miracle
A message that somebody sent

Always forget about them
Often forget about them

A lotta yours, a little of mine
I’m breakin’ out my friends tonight
I look around, I made up my mind
Someone’s gonna pay the price

(Bridge)

Always forget about them
Often forget about them

A lotta yours, a little of mine
I’m breakin’ out my friends tonight
I look around, I made up my mind
Someone’s gonna pay the price (2x)

“Circus Freak” lyrics

Carousel

From the album “Carousel” by Full Service
(All lyrics by Hoag Kepner, c. 2013 Full Service Entertainment, LLC)

 

Gotta be a little bit o’ crazy if you wanna move around the world with a little human chicken baby (2x)

Under the curtain and behind the wall
Misshapen barnyard creatures in jars
But these I’ve seen, there’s gotta be more
The half-human beings are what I came for

When you finally face it
What’s inside, what’s inside
When you finally face it what’s inside

Saw the freaks, paid my quarter
Now they’re hauntin’ me
Every night they visit me inside my dreams
No place in the world for a circus freak
You wretched little thing

Gotta be a little bit o’ crazy if you wanna move around the world with a little human chicken baby (2x)

A sick company and deeply macabre
I try not to look, but why’s that so hard?
A skeleton man and his two-ton bride
I wanna go in and see what’s inside

When you finally face it
What’s inside, what’s inside
When you finally face it what’s inside

Saw the freaks, paid my quarter
Now they’re hauntin’ me
Every night they visit me inside my dreams
No place in the world for a circus freak
You wretched little dirty thing

There, by the window, through the bars my mother swings
Her trunk like a cradle, and she sings
“Baby of mine, I promise you’ll be fine.
You gotta believe that you’re gonna be free!”

(Solo)

Saw the freaks, paid my quarter
Now they’re hauntin’ me
Every night they visit me inside my dreams
No place in the world for a circus freak

Saw the freaks, paid my quarter
Now they’re hauntin’ me
Every night they visit me inside my dreams
No place in the world for a circus freak
You wretched little thing

“Come on in!”
“Take a look at what we got in here!”
“Come inside and check out the freaks!”
“Come one, come all!”
