A Little Like You

A little like you
I’m dreamin’ ‘bout a double-wide
I work hard but still I’m broke
A little like you
I salute the flag with pride
Like I’s taught to by my folks

(You think you know the time)
A little bit like you I’ve got problems in my life
(You think you know my rhyme)
A little bit like you I try and try and try, and try
A little like you

A little like you
I don’t need fancy things
Don’t mind eatin’ at the Tasty Freeze
A little like you
I work hard every day
But Friday night I do what I please

(You think you know the time)
A little bit like you I’ve got problems in my life
(You think you know my rhyme)
A little bit like you I try and try and try, and try
A little like you

A little like you
I dream ‘bout a double-wide
I work hard but still I’m broke
A little like you
I salute that flag with pride….
Like I’s taught to by my folks

(You think you know the time)
A little bit like you I’ve got problems in my life
(You think you know my rhyme)
A little bit like you I try and try and try, and try
A little like you!
A little like you!
A little like you!
A little like you!

CEREALISMO
words & music by Ethan Gold
from “Adventures of Power” Original Soundtrack ©2008

Yo……

Fui a – una fiesta
Y otra vez – regreso solo

Pase por – la bodega
Siempre busco – la misma cosa
Luz brillan – a toda hora
Me va a dar mi poder
Y si haya leche en el frigo

Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!
Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!
Cerealismo!

Fui a – la cama
La revolución me pasa – de largo

La fruta prohibida
Ahora la Muerte causa
Pero – vale la pena
Pero – no me importa
Sé que hay leche en el frigo

Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!
Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!

Los villancios
Te hicieron pasarfrio
El mundo ha esperado
Tanto para abrazarte
Sería como una piedra que quiere volar

Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!
Cada noche, antes de dormirme yo necesito comer!
Y lo que como es cereal!
Cerealismo!

IMPOSSIBLE FANTASY BALLAD
words & music by Ethan Gold
from “Adventures of Power” Original Soundtrack ©2008

They say it’s an “impossible fantasy”
They say the world will laugh at me
They say, “keep your head down,
You look like a clown,
Dreams aren’t for you or me.”

You’ve been workin’ hard
All across the land
But soon come a day
You’ll take your stand
Down in the field
It’s dry and hot
But up in the sky
You’ll be a cosmonaut
Yes, you’re spreading those wings
And you’re learnin’ to fly
Well, you can’t succeed
If you don’t try
Yes, you’re workin’ hard
Lord knows they work you to the bone
And then bring you down
When you get home
You got a master plan
Nobody understands
I know you’ll find a way
To make a brighter day!

That Impossible Fantasy
Is guiding you fearlessly
To a glorious place
Out in outer space
Where your horses run free!
“Impossible Fantasy”
Is becoming your destiny
So raise your head high
You’ll rocket to the sky
And remake the astronomy
They said “Impossible Fantasy” (Time to begin!)
But now the whole world is cheering me (Ah-ahhhh!!)
To a glorious place
Out in deepest space
Yes we’ve made our dream reality!

Impossible Fantasy
(with background singers)

Nickeled and dimed
Overtimed
They got you workin’ so you just might lose your mind
Your ears ringin’
Your eyes stingin’
When payday comes the boss man just robs ya blind

Oh, they work you to the bone
And they just bring ya down when you get home
You’re the man with the plan
Soon they’ll all understand you
Got the will, got the skill
To be a super man

CHORUS
Impossible fantasy (believe in yourself)
Is guiding you fearlessly (you and no-one else)
To that glorious place
At the end of the race
Where your dreams run free
That impossible fantasy (time to begin)
Is becoming your destiny (your time to win)
So raise your head high
Set your sights on the sky
And make your dream your new reality

[2 cycles instrumental]

Paid your toll
You’re on a roll
They got you sweating but you still won’t lose control
The bell’s ringin’
Your heart’s singin’
Clockin’ out you know they still don’t own your soul
Though they work you to the bone
(And they just laugh at you at home)
You’re the man with the plan
Only your will commands you
Write the plot, cosmonaut
You’ll be a Superman

CHORUS
Impossible fantasy (believe in yourself)
Is guiding you fearlessly (you and no-one else)
To that glorious place
Out in outer space
Where your horses run free
That impossible fantasy (it’s time to begin)
Is becoming your destiny (your time to win)
So raise your head high
you’ll rocket to the sky
And make your dream your new reality

Impossible Fantasy
one-singer version

Nickeled and dimed
Overtimed
They got you workin’ so you just might lose your mind
Your ears ringin’
Your eyes stingin’
When payday comes the boss man just robs ya blind

Oh, they work you to the bone
And they just bring ya down when you get home
You’re the man with the plan
Soon they’ll all understand you
Got the will, got the skill
To be a super man

CHORUS
Impossible fantasy — believe in yourself
Fearlessly — you and no-one else
To that place
At the end of the race
Where your dreams run free
That impossible fantasy — time to begin
Your destiny — your time to win
Your head high
Set your sights on the sky
Make your dream your new reality

[2 cycles instrumental]

CHORUS
Impossible fantasy — believe in yourself
Fearlessly — you and no-one else
To that place
Out in outer space
Where your horses run free
That impossible fantasy — time to begin
Your destiny — your time to win
Your head high
You’ll rocket to the sky
Make your dream your new reality

Lovin’ Tonight

I don’t want to fool ya
every woman knows with me she’s not the only one
and I don’t want to rule ya girl,
it’s just sometimes I want more than a little fun

they say that I’m a gigilo
and maybe what they say is true
but you see the man that no-one knows
and that man is calling to you, cuz

CHORUS
Baby, I need your lovin’… tonight
Come on, Baby, (come on, girl)
I got that feelin’… so right
Wanna get, to my bed, with the sheets of lace and silk
Soft pillows, champagne on ice (oo!)
Let’s undress, and caress, makin’ love til we feel that chill
Rough or mellow, it’s so nice, so nice

yes i give em what i got,
I always make it count, when I got em in my arms
sure, I like to play a lot
but sometimes I jus get to missing you and your charms

they say that I’m a gigilo
and maybe what they say is true but
you see the man that no-one knows
and that man is calling to you, girl, cuz

Baby, I need your lovin’ tonight
Come on, Baby, (come on, girl) I got that feelin’… so right (so right)
Wanna get, to my bed, with my sheets of lace and silk
Soft pillows, champagne on ice (oo!)
Let’s undress, and caress, makin’ love til we feel that chill
Rough or mellow, it’s so nice, so nice

So, come on, Baby, I need your lovin’… tonight
(That’s right), Baby, I got that feelin’… so right (so right)
Wanna get, to my bed, with my sheets of lace and silk
Soft pillows, champagne on ice (oo!)
Let’s undress, and caress, makin’ love til we get our fill
Let’s be together, together, forever

New Jersey Nights

INST [4 measure g]

VERSE 1
On a New Jersey night
The boys went looking for a fight
From the bay, from Cape May
All the way up LBI

VERSE 2
Paulie brought his best old switchblade
Timmy packed cuz he was tight
Jack was scared, Joe’s prepared
For the boys from old Seabright

INST [one cycle verse]

VERSE 3
At the pier we met ‘em squarely
Hit ‘em twice for every shot
It’s no jive, to stay alive
But we gave ‘em all we got

CHORUS
On a New Jersey night
Th-Those New Jersey nights
Th-Those New Jersey nights
Make it all alright

INST [4 measure g]

VERSE 4
Now the boys have grown up somehow
Timmy works pouring concrete
Jack’s around, underground
Joey’s doing one to three

VERSE 5
And if you see little Shoshanna
Won’t you say hello for me
In my heart, she’s still part
Of the life I thought I’d lead

BRIDGE
We weren’t asking for nothing
More than what we got, it wasn’t a lot. No.
But if they try to take
Our one little piece away
We’ll give them everything our fists can give ‘em

SOLO [2 verse cycles, or just one playing chorus riff if solo]

VERSE 6 [breakdown]
Cuz on a New Jersey morning
Well it isn’t much to see
Purple dawn, dreams are gone
Like a fading memory

VERSE 7
But on a New Jersey night
The boys still putting up a fight
Brothers strike, on the Pike
From Secaucus to Seabright

CHORUS 2-3
New Jersey Nights
New Jersey Nights
Th-Those New Jersey Nights
Make it all alright
[repeat chorus]

SHOWTUNES
words & music by Ethan Gold
from “Adventures of Power” Original Soundtrack ©2008

I’ve got show tunes
Lots of show tunes
And they’re spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning in my head

I hear show tunes
Nothing but show tunes
And they’re spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spin!
They want me dead

I’ve got show tunes
Lots of show tunes
And they’re spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning in my head

We hopped, we bopped
We clop-de-dop-de-dopped
We propped and plopped and flopped until we said….

I got show tunes
Nothing but show tunes
And they’re spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spinning spin….!

Come on, hon’
It’s time for bed

THE DANCE FLOOR
words & music by Ethan Gold
from “Adventures of Power” Original Soundtrack ©2008

and you see her on the dance floor
then you can’t see her anymore
like sudden strangers on passing trains
into the forbidden zone again

and you see her on the dance floor
then you can’t see her anymore
across the room you had eyes of blue
all this time while I wait pour vouz

and you see her on the dance floor
then you can’t see her anymore
like sudden strangers on passing trains
into the forbidden zone again

 

THE PEOPLE WANT PEAS
words & music by Ethan Gold
from “Adventures of Power” Original Soundtrack ©2008

We walked through the valley
We walked through the field
And heard yon marching band did play!
We ate fried… tomatoes
Because they were so green
Then we saw ourselves in a different scene

The People want peas
The People want peas
The People crave peas today
Peas today

We walked… walked through the alley
And saw! a painted potted plants parade!
And in that Balmy Alley… way…
We saw – Painted slogans on the wall

(And they said)
The People want peas
The People want peas
The People crave peas
In the present day
In the present day
