amottens I saw Sam play Harborside Pizza at the Lizard Lounge back in the fall and I thought it was the best song of the night. Went looking for it then, and I'm glad spotify notified me of this coming out today. Favorite track: Sunsweeper ~ Egg.

Down the harborside there's a place Run by a military man he's making pizzas in the back room He's got puzzles on the wall of jigsaw portraits on the ceiling And he never sleeps alone except when he does I worked there as a boy cleaning plates and knives the whole nine yards you know how it goes And the military man was still just getting his marketing right He serves cold turkey on a hot dish and keeps the breakfasts continental And he never eats alone except when he does And he always does Come down the harborside We'll be there Come down the harborside We'll be there Been waiting all my life to be there Come down the harborside We'll be there That's Harborside Pizza off exit 3! Harborside Pizza off exit 3! Come down the harborside We'll be there Come down the harborside We'll be there Been waiting all my life to be there Come down the harborside We'll be there That's Harborside Pizza off exit 3! Harborside Pizza off exit 3!

Take heed take care Verona fair My hearts despair may be a trifle But God above our hells below Put down your bow and fetch your rifle These sad hours seem so long I hear no laugh no song Is there no one belongs to only me? Who'll take her loving thread And weave it through my head Stitch up my soul of lead And let me love her? I know I'll love her Forever and always We'll never part but Tomorrow is too late Dance with me Dance with me tonight Can you make time for me? Done with the compass now The chart is o'er the prow Might I but moor somehow in you tonight The moon hymns quiet commands To take you by the hand To lead you on the sands She guides our dancing And here we're dancing Forever and always We'll never part but Tomorrow is too late Dance with me Dance with me tonight

Shuffle Song 02:15
Haven’t been a lot of places Never had one fling And I never seen another girl jive and swing The way you do I swear it’s true Heard you had em grooving up at Juilliard Fooling in the pool hall Rocking round the yule ball Running through the school yard And I need to ask you please girl If it’s alright, if you don’t mind babe Then could you and me maybe dance to a shuffle song You and me maybe dance to a shuffle song I wonder I say you wanna boogie? You don’t know Bunny hop? You gotta go Rock and roll? Stroll? Nos are taking their toll And I know I ain’t a dancer but baby I wonder If it’s alright, if you don’t mind babe Then could you and me maybe dance to a shuffle song You and me maybe dance to a shuffle song You and me gonna dance to a shuffle song

Emily 02:37
Little Emily come stand close to me Pick shells and pebbles we by the sea But our time is short here and love takes a while And the ocean swells to see you smile Everyone wants piece of your love Me too Everyone wants piece of your love Me too While you were away I wrote out What I want to say but I can't now Everyone wants piece of your love Me too Every day I dream Emily Ham and Uncle Dan sleep on the sand While we flitter like young mavishes Only home for tea and radishes and sweets Everyone wants piece of your love Me too Everyone wants piece of your love Me too

Boy I love my fun But I hate the sun Cuz he can't play it cool I've stayed inside all day And I've drawn the shades Trying to keep my cool Trying to keep my cool Trying to keep my cool Make my way downstairs Trying to get some air Trying to feel the cool breeze But Christ there goes that sun Sweeps me like a broom Back up to my room So I go back to sleep So I go back to sleep Baby mouse dead in the driveway Dropped by a blue jay like an egg on a pan A pink little lump Melting in the sun Soon to be stuck there like rodent gum Baby mouse dead in the driveway Dropped by a blue jay like an egg on a pan A pink little lump Melting in the sun Soon to be stuck there like rodent gum Mom couldn't save you Though you're so well-behaved you sleep without her asking you to Sleep sweet boy A pink little lump And your bloody brain yolk run runs Soon to be stuck there like rodent gum I'd scrape you off the pavement But today the heat is hazy I'm lazy I'd scrape you off the pavement But today the heat is hazy I'm lazy

You left on a day like today I'm asleep while you catch your train And I lied like they said I would Couldn't you tell that I'm just no good Read old pen on a postcard like it's breaking news I set down and have myself a beer Crossfire across town wakes me up at noon And I try to cry but I can't It's too sincere too sincere Golly, good grief Is it any wonder I'm alone Molly Moncrief Won't you make my house a home We met on a day like today Placing bets on the way home train And I lied I said I'd be good Still you knew I never could So I read old pen on a postcard like it's breaking news I set down and have myself a beer or two Crossfire across town wakes me up at noon And I try to cry but I can't It's too sincere too sincere Golly, good grief Is it any wonder I'm alone Molly Moncrief Won't you make my house a home Golly, good grief Is it any wonder I'm alone Molly Moncrief Won't you get your ass on home
