Forty Bears

©2014 Velvetone/Elbmusikverlag

Out of the downtown cave,
Groovin’ on the countryside lawn
Shake ‘em booty in their baggy pants
From dusk till dawn

Lickin’ sweet honey from their rusty cans
Gettin’ rid of them nasty ants
Singin’ Yankee Doodle with their Southern friends
All night long.

Wanda’n’Dolly
Hank’n’Buck
Kitty, Patsy‘n’Emmylou
Shake them booty too…

Forty bears – get together on their sacred ground
Forty bears – sharing with folks what’s been found
Forty bears – harmonize to their sacred sounds
Forty bears – since forty years.

Sway from side to side
Hum and strum their favorite songs
Bumpin‘ furry tails in a Hula dance
Till the early mornin‘

Jimmy’n’Johnny
Rose’n’June
Eddie, Gene and Jerry Lee
Shake them booty too…

Forty bears – get together on their sacred ground
Forty bears – sharing with folks what’s been found
Forty bears – harmonize to their sacred sounds
Forty bears – since forty years.

Out of the downtown cave
Groovin’ on the countryside lawn
Shake ‘em booty in their baggy pants
From dusk till dawn.

Forty bears – get together on their sacred ground
Forty bears – sharing with folks what’s been found
Forty bears – harmonize to their sacred sounds
Forty bears – since forty years!

The River

 Lüers-Merck-Wittke-Ulrich

Memories,
Souls of the departed passing by.
Memories…
Calling me,
wash images of losses off my mind.
Calling me…
Ask myself,
What the stream is gonna bring this time?
Ask myself…

Where the river knows no bound,
Traces to be found.
Where the river knows no bound …
… Safe and sound!
Givin’ goes on,
Takin’ goes on,
Can’t be undone!
The river rolls on…

Far away,
There’s a spring where everything begins.
Far away …
On and on,
An everlasting circuit goes and goes.
On and on …
Confidence,
What’s lost and gone makes way for somethin’ new.
Confidence…

Where the river knows no bound,
Traces to be found.
Where the river knows no bound …
… Safe and sound!
Givin’ goes on,
Takin’ goes on,
Can’t be undone!
The river rolls on…

Fuzzy Brown

2010 Velvetone

Sweet tooth baby bear longing for some honey
Plodding through the woods peeping up the boring old trees
Climbing up a birch tree grabbing at the beehive
Tearing down the whole branch steppin’ on the late king bee
Slightly overweight
Mostly well-behaved
By all means a problem bear

Talkin’ ‘bout a
Fuzzy brown
Eight foot
Berry pickin’
Goat kickin’
Honey lickin’
Knockin’ down beehives
Kind of a problem bear

Grown-up Fuzzy bear wading in the water
Staring at the crawfish waiting for a big fat trout
Slipping on a wet stone juggling not to fall
Crashin’ in a beaver dam another Fuzzy big black out
Slightly overweight
Mostly well-behaved
By all means a problem bear

Talkin’ ‘bout a
Fuzzy brown
Eight foot
Berry pickin’
Goat kickin’
Honey lickin’
Knockin down beehives
Kind of a problem bear

Grey-haired senior bear no pockets for no money
Tempted by a sweet smell heading for a general store
Breaking through the window belly gettin’ stuck
His new suit’s fittin’ tight trouble he will make no more
Slightly overweight
Mostly well-behaved
By all means a problem bear

Talkin’ ‘bout a
Fuzzy brown
Eight foot
Berry pickin’
Goat kickin’
Honey lickin’
Knockin down beehives

Mormon Girl

 Lüers-Merck-Wittke-Ulrich

Hey Mormon girl
Won’t you marry me,
Won’t you marry me here today
Hey Mormon girl
Won’t you marry me here today

Don’t tell anybody!
Don’t hesitate!
Could be our secret,
Cause it’s just for the moment – for one day.

I’m afraid there’s a problem
We can’t fix the common way
You’re talking religion
What price you gotta pay

A hungry life
In sacrifice
Your starving eyes…
They’re telling me those little white lies

It’s something anyone can see.
Dontcha fool the world
When you find yourself in a hormone whirl…

Hey Mormon girl
Won’t you marry me,
Won’t you marry me for one day
Hey Mormon girl
Won’t you marry me for one day

Don’t tell anybody!
Don’t hesitate!
Could be our secret,
Cause it’s just for the moment – for one day.

I’m sure you’re quite certain
Who you left along your way
(But) for the joy of loving
You just kneel down and pray

A sacred fight
To see ‘The Light’
Your longing eyes…
They’re telling me those little white lies

Believe me, you gone way too far!
Dontcha steal away
When you drag everyone in a hormone whirl…

Bearfootin‘

Robert Parker 1966 / Velvetone 2005

Everybody git on your feet,
You make me nervous when you in your seat
Take off your shoes and pat your feet,
We’re doin a dance that can’t be beat

We bearfootin‘, We bearfootin‘,
We bearfootin‘, We bearfootin‘,

Went to a party the other night,
Boss of bears was out of sight
Threw way his wig and his sneakers too
He was doin a dance without any shoes

He was bearfootin‘, He was bearfootin‘,
He was bearfootin‘, He was bearfootin‘,

Hey big ole man with your long hair down
I bet you can bearfoot all night long
Take off your shoes and throw ‚em away,
Come back and get ‚em another day

We bearfootin‘, We bearfootin‘,
We bearfootin‘, We bearfootin‘,

Boss of bears he told his crew
If I’s bearfoot would you bearfoot too
Crew told boss,we’ll stir your stew
We was barefootin ever since we was two

They was bearfootin‘, they was bearfootin‘
They was bearfootin‘, We bearfootin‘
we bearfootin‘ We bearfootin‘
aahhaa
We bearfootin‘ we bearfootin‘
We bearfootin‘ we all have no shoes on
We bearfootin‘ We bearfootin‘

Violent Man

Köster-Lüers-Goodman / Velvetone

I wish I was six foot ten and a violent man,
strong like a bear with an iron hand.
Can’t explain, they don’t understand,
you look out all across the land !
I wanna be a gate crashin‘, loser bashin‘, fool slashin‘,
meanest, toughest son of a gun.

Anyone’ll tell I’m a peaceful guy,
some say weak, wouldn’t hurt a fly.
Sometimes the rage rises up in me,
still when the cure is plain to see :
love your sister, love your brother,
everybody care for each other.
But pop goes the shit and out come the fools,
That’ll be the time when my strong arm rules.

Don’t give a fuck ‚bout socialization.
Don’t gimme psychological explanation.
Always a reason why they act that way,
they’re too close, they ain’t makin‘ my day.
I wanna kick you out the door,
you ain’t gonna mess with me no more.
Say your prayers you dusty farts,
now’s the time the rumble starts.

There’s a whole lot more than black and white,
a third way between wrong and right.
Feel so tired, helpless and small.
Just one way to get along with them all :
love your gun like your brother,
I shoot one, you shoot the other.
Pop goes my piece, end up in jail,
that’ll be the day when my strong arm fails.

I wish I was six foot ten and a violent man,
strong like a bear with an iron hand.
Can’t explain, they don’t understand,
you look out all across the land !
I wanna be a gate crashin‘,
loser bashin‘,
fool slashin‘,
jerk smashin‘,
redneck bashin‘,
ass hole clashin‘,
meanest, toughest son of a gun.

Falling Star

Wittke / Wittke-Lüers

I sit all alone in my room, I worry and I wonder,
how many stars in the sky could shine there above,
some of these stars up above must have been lovers, long ago
but is there a star just for me that could be my love.

And she comes from the heavens above,
and it seems she falls into my arms,
but i’m too far to catch that falling star.

I sit all alone at the bar drinking and I wonder,
how many times did I fail to get near my star,
so many pretty girls all around me,
but the one that I desire, for me she’s too far.

And she comes from the heavens above,
and it seems she falls into my arms,
but i’m too far to catch that falling star.

I sit all alone in my room I worry and I wonder,
how many years must go by ‚til I find my love,
I searched and I searched to end my heartbreak,
but even if i lie on the ground, my last hope’s above.
