Mr. T is my hero He's so very, very cool He teaches me to be somebody So that I don't have to be somebody's fool He teaches me to treat my mother right His changes remind him of his folkses' past He reminds me that I must wear clothing Or in the jailhouse is where I'll wind up at He's got all the style & cool dance moves His rappin' skills are where it's at I think I'd like to look just like him Except I don't have a mohawk, and I'm not black So Mr. T, if you ever hear this And I really, truly hope you do Maybe some day we could hang out Someday when I'm famous just like you

Silent Night 02:48
Silent night, holy night All is calm, all is bright Round yon virgin, mother & Child Holy Infant, so tender & mild Sleep in heavenly peace Sleep in heavenly peace Silent night, holy night Shepherds quake at the sight Glories stream from Heaven afar Heavenly hosts sing, "Alleluia!" Christ, the Savior, is born Christ, the Savior, is born Silent night, holy night Son of God, love's pure light Radiant beams from Thy holy face With the dawn of redeeming grace Jesus, Lord at Thy birth Jesus, Lord at Thy birth

Heliotropism (Leaning Toward the Light) Painted over the rust But it still shows It still shows I got nothing but time on my hands And this heavy load Heavy load Sure could use someone to walk beside me now So pull up a stool & help me talk this out (Chorus) I’m walking down this road Carrying more weight than I can hold (I don’t ) always see things in black & white But I assure you that I am leaning toward the light Carrying more weight than I can hold alone Covering over the scar I try to hide Try so hard to hide (Failed more) times than I can count But I have tried Lord knows I’ve tried Sure could use someone to walk beside me now So pull up a stool & help me talk this out (Chorus minus last line, then chorus again)

I was walking down Prince Street In this city of red & grey When your call came You spoke of a cost that can’t be paid With any currency the mint had made As the snow blew under the street lights You always said that the small things They seem to be the only way When your call came, did you have the Presence of mind, presence of mind Even if it meant you had to bleed Hands & feet that would Carry their weight, carry their weight A hand held out in need I was walking up Prince Street Spring in this city of green & white When you came by You were dreaming in languages undefined Love profound that wrapped my mind Like a poet who’s found his voice Dreaming in languages undefined Dreaming in languages undefined I was walking down Prince Street In this city of red & grey When your call came
