Old Shep - poeta de Cabra

Mum will be worried and tonight will be a frost
The sun is going down quickly I know I am lost
Not at all sure if we are on the right track
Shep, you are smart you'll find the way back

It really is my fault, you only have one bad habit
I shouldn't let you chase that big old buck rabbit
Watching you run after it was ever so much fun
If dad was there he would have shot it with a gun

Time sure went fast Shep, what happened to the day
I've had a real good time, and we both like to play
Not at all scared, if we see a bear you will bark
But we better hurry home, can't be out after dark

Silly me, I couldn't remember which way that we went
But you are a smart dog, you will pick up the scent
Mum will be really worried, she'll be a nervous wreck
Dad consoling her, saying "He's okay with Old Shep"

We will be safe, I can feel it in my heart
You're a brave dog Shep and very, very smart
Oh, Shep there it is, I can see our family home
Lets run all the way and I'll get you a big bone

Mum, Dad and Sis are smiling and waving like mad
They are happy to see us, and I'm twice as glad
Now we are home, the day has come to an end
I love you Shep, you really are my best friend

Take The Road - poeta de Cabra

I know, I told you
to take the road less travelled
But what you`re doing now
has me completely baffled

Didn`t you understand
my old drunken friend
When I said to you
"lets play on the road again"

I don`t want you weaving
in and out of trucks
People will be thinking
we are two dumb schmuks

No need for you mate
to be flirting with danger
Just singing the song
by the redheaded stranger

If you take the road
lots of folk will be upset
Some haven`t even been
outside of town yet

When you get where you`re going
and to avoid any flak
You`d better turn straight around
and take the road back

More than likely be quite tired
perhaps even in pain
But surprised at the people
happy to see you again

In your mind when you left
there was no going back
Just praying old mate
that you`ll take the right track

Perhaps its a sad road
it may not lead anywhere
Still, the road is for everyone
we all need to share

Please mate, take the road
back to your hometown
Too many folks left behind
don`t let them down

I`m sorry we argued
was a simple joke at the start
I said take the road
didn`t need to take it to heart?

Before you go and take
the road of dirt and gravel
Go see your dear girfriend
and your problems unravel

If you try to make up
and she says "Go Away Forever"
Then my dear mate
we can take the road togethe
