Track Name: Ain't No Use
Ain't No Use Lyrics
Ain't No Use
By Jim Crozer

Well, I stayed too long in bed last night, ‘Cause I was alone,
Didn’t get to work last night, didn’t play no songs,
Now I’m feeling bad, said I’m feeling so upset,
Gettin nothin done today, got just one more cigarette.
It Ain’t no Use to Me now, no ya ain’t no use to me now.

You know I used to wonder where you’re commin from, babe,
now I wonder where you’re gone.
If I didn’t like this old guitar so much, I’d go and get a pawn
Ticket on it so I could ride in a taxi,
When I leave this old hole, to find someone else to take your place,
It ain’t no use to be now, no it ain’t no use to me now,
Your worry ain’t no use to me now, ‘cause you’ gone.

Mary when you went away, you know I cried for a little while
Tried to smoke myself to death, even tried that little vial
Of poison that I tried to take away from you when you
found me here with Sue,
And now the both of you are gone,
I say there’s nothing left for me to do,
It Ain’t no Use to Me now, it ain’t no use to me now,
Your worry ain’t no use to me now, ‘cause you’ gone.
Yea you’ gone away,
Yea you’ gone away,
Yea you’ gone away,
You make me feel so bad, I hope you feel (well) Alright!

Track Name: Young Girl Said Goodbye
Young Girl Said Goodbye Lyrics

Young Girl Said Goodbye Jim Crozier

I put up the phone, 'cause the young girl said good bye.
I went looking for a lover, 'cause the young girl said good bye.
'Round the corner, down the street, I stepped into a room
Full of people laughin', drinkin', gettin' high.
By The only empty seat, that woman felt the heat,
Coming from somewhere down by my thigh,
'cause the young girl said good bye.

We spoke of California And the desert where she cried
But New York was her home It's the Perfect Place to Hide.
'Round the corner, down the street, and up into my room,
The music drove our passion to the sky
And Rolling in my bed, we followed where it led
Coming without ever asking why

But Oh, the longing for the young girl never passed,
And, as it happened, the music didn't last,
But 'now' is 'in the moment',
And it happened all so fast,
So long ago... When the Young Girl Said "Goodbye".

I went looking for a lover when the young girl said good bye
I had to go and find another when the young girl said good bye
I went lookin', lookin', lookin' when the young girl said good bye
I had to learn to live without her when the young girl said good bye
When the young girl said goodbye Young girl said goodbye

Track Name: A Cup of Coffee
A Cup of Coffee Lyrics

A Cup of Coffee
Jim Crozier

A cup of coffee, and it goes away,
That dreadful feeling at the break of day,
A heartfelt sigh as you try to say,
“I Love You”.

She knows you're gone, Nothing can be done,
To change the way that you're moving on.
Remembering that after all that fun,
You didn't stay.

But even now that your freedom's here,
You cannot even take the time to cry,
You hurt her bad, you know,
It hurts to be alone, you know.
And now you're free of her,
You'll never think of her, you know.

A cup of coffee, and it goes away,
That dreadful feeling at the end of the day,
A heartfelt sob, as you try to say,
“I Love You”.
No, you just can't say, “I Love You”. (slower)

Track Name: Back to Plan A
Back to Plan A Lyrics
Back to Plan "A" Jim Crozier

Verse 1:
I'm on the music scene, success is all I see,
But daddy said, "Son, you gotta have a plan B".
So I got me a job, did pretty well, some say,
But I'm loosing my mind, I'm getting back to Plan "A".

Chorus:
I'm gettin' back to Plan “A”, can't loose another minute,
It's killing my soul in this shop,
That promotion ahead, is no good, if you're dead.
Don't stand in my way, I'm getting back to Plan “A”.

Verse 2:
Some sorry super looser fired my best friend,
That story really made me mad, I won't pretend,
I picked up my ax and headed out to play,
I'm not loosing my mind, I'm getting back to Plan "A".

Chorus:

then tag:
Can't wait another day, I'm getting back to Plan “A”,
Don't stand in my way, I'm getting back! To plan “A”

Track Name: Saint James Infirmary
Saint James Infirmary Lyrics
I didn't write this one, duh, but this is roughly what I sang on that ocassion:

I went down to old Joe's Barroom,
On the corner of the square,
The drinks were served as usual,
And the usual crowd was there.

On my left stood old Joe McKennedy,
His eyes were bloodshot red,
And as he lifted up his flagon,
These are the words he said.

I went down to Saint James Infirmary,
Saw my baby there,
Wripped up on a long white table,
So cold, so sweet, so fair.

Well, let her go, let her go, god rest her,
Wherever she may roam,
She can look this whole world over,
Never gonna find a better home.
Track Name: Hymn to Opportunity
Hymn to Opportunity Lyrics
Hymn To Opportunity Jim Crozier

It’s something that waits in the dawn,
And it’s calling out to you.
It’s something that breaks out in song,
And you know, it’s not o - ver
When someone who loves you is gone,
Gives you time to think.
It’s only time, it’s only time.

The waking is turning you on,
Let’s get back to life.
The music is bringing it on,
And you know, it’s not o - ver
When someone who loves you is gone,
Carry on.
Maybe this time, maybe this time.

Many times before,
Life has opened up the door.
And as we study hymns of yore,
We find it so.

And this time, you know it’s for you,
Let’s go out and play.
This is your time, this is your time.
This is your time, this is your time.
This is your time, this is your time.
This is your time, it’s only time.

Track Name: The Cat Song
The Cat Song Lyrics
The Cat Song Jim Crozier

Well, the Cat came back, been gone the last few days
The Cat came back, been gone the last few days.
I let her in, I fell victim to her ways.

Well, I tried to read the paper, but the cat was in the way
Cat tried to read the paper, and the cat was in the way
That cat was in my lap, and this is what I had to say:

Chorus 2x:
If you can relax, you can stay there
Get excited, you gotta get down
(play the blues)

Well, the Cat came back, He showed up at your party.
This cat came back, He shows up at your party,
It's getting late, things begin to get roudy.

Well, this Cat came back, He really had a jones to play,
This cat came back, he really had a jones to play,
He brought his axe, and this is what he had to say:

Chorus 4x (ad lib):
If you can relax, you can stay there
Get excited, you gotta get down.

Track Name: Not Forever
Not Forever Lyrics
Not Forever Jim Crozier

She was going to be my muse, my soul and inspiration,
but she didn't know how,
Remembering that crazy scene, and what it means,
to anybody now,
The past of life, and visions of an erstwhile wife,
a meaningless vow,
That stormy night, we had a fight,
And knew that things would never be the same.

Vs2:
And now it's been so long, another generation
reaches into the well,
That silly plan we had, was pretty bad,
stuff just went to hell,
The beauty of a model, slightly faded,
Resting there in my bed
I really didn't have a say about what was,
and what is not forever.

Track Name: What You Want
What You Want Lyrics
What You Want
Jim Crozier

Well, I see you’re in from Nashville,
Say you’re doin’ pretty well,
And, your latest song just climbed the charts,
For weeks before it fell,
And, your pretty wife is home alone,
Wonder if she got the news,
It’s what you want!
But, boy your gonna sing the blues.

Well you’re gone to LA for a week or two,
Got some folks you gotta see,
And your record deal is golden,
Even done some MTV,
And you tell the wife you’re gonna make it home,
This time without fail,
It’s what you want!
You got a tiger by the tail.

And the dealer comes round often,
And the party’s goin’ strong.
Every one’s gotta meet you,
But your friends are all long gone,
And your wife just served you papers,
And the tour just went to Hell,
It’s what your want!
If you ever live to tell.
