about

2009 is a 7-song EP of songs I recorded in 2009 that didn't belong to other projects. It just seemed like the thing to do. Released on New Year's Eve of that year, and it led to the 2010 series "31 Flavours."

Track Name: Take A Look
Take a look outside
Snow is falling from the sky
Take a look outside
No one's on the street

Look inside your mind
Still reeling from that time
Look inside your mind
You never want to see
You never want to see

In your life you've known true sorrow
In your life you've known true joy

Take a look at your life
This is your time to shine
Everyone in your life
is someone you'd like to meet

Take a look outside
Snow is flying through the sky
Take a look outside
Everyone is smiling
Everyone is smiling
Everything is alright
Track Name: The Nouvelle And The Old
I thought I loved her
and she not me
until I found someone new
Then I discovered
her true feelings
when jealousy bled through

I find myself
torn between
the nouvelle and the old
So in the end
to keep them friends
I keep myself alone
Track Name: Mexico
They tell us all that we're gonna die
from getting close to a filthy swine
it's in the papers and it's on the tube
and on the 'net so it must be true

but I don't think that's so, oh no
I believe that it's all overblown

it's just the flu that you see each day
only with better marketing

they're just trying to sell you drugs
don't believe in all that silly hype

we all know who dies in Mexico
Track Name: Nixon Town
Aroo, aroo, aroo
Aroo, aroo, aroo
Ahhhhhh

Let me tell you what to do
Should the adventure bug bite you
and you go to Nixon Town

Let me tell you where to go
In this place you may not know
if you go to Nixon Town

many things you'll see and curiousity
can lead you through a web of deceit
But if you stop now and listen to me
you'll learn just how to be discreet

First stop is the Watergate
bring a flashlight if it's late
when you go to Nixon Town

Have a towel to wipe your face
and bring some bug spray just in case
When you go to Nixon Town

Have a game of ping pong for a lark
and play with Checkers in the park
you are free to do most anything
even shake hands with The King

but if you stay long you'd better
bring an extra coat and sweater
it will be worth the cost
to stave off a sudden Frost

Aroo, aroo, aroo
Aroo, aroo, aroo
Ahhhhhh

So if, my friend, you go
I sincerely hope
that I'll see you in Nixon Town
Track Name: New Year's Eve
She's a lonely woman
but I am not afraid
I'm not afraid

I am a man who wants to see
riches as far as a telephone swings
and light a candle on New Year's Eve
for me

You want to know what I want to know
but I told you sometime ago
and you forgot to bestow your love
to me

She's a lonely woman
but I am not afraid
