I Hope You’re Having Fun

- lyrics by Bill Branley

 

Are you ready
are you ready
are you ready for love today
are you ready for love today
'cause tomorrow never ever ever comes.
I hope you're having fun 'cause tomorrow the lovin' might be done.

Are you ready
are you ready
are you ready for love today
are you ready for love today
'cause tomorrow never ever ever comes.
I hope you're having fun 'cause tomorrow the lovin' might be done.

Are you ready
It's time my love
Are you ready
Enjoy it now
'cause tomorrow the lovin' might be—

Are you ready
It's now my love
Are you ready
Enjoy it now
'cause tomorrow the lovin' might be—

Are you ready
It's here my love
Are you ready
Enjoy it now
'cause tomorrow the lovin' might be—

Are you ready
It's now my love
Are you ready
Enjoy it now
'cause tomorrow might be done!

Are you ready
are you ready
are you ready for love today
are you ready for love today
'cause tomorrow...
I hope you're having fun 'cause tomorrow the lovin' might be done.

 

The Nola Shuffle

-lyrics by Bill Branley

 

I want to go back home
where it's nice and sweet.
I want to feel that ground
even when it's a street.

I miss the fancy places
like the Blue Room at the Fairmont
but there's a perfect poboy
at Magazine and Valmont.

It's the shuffle you got to move your feet.
The Nola shuffle it's in the people you meet.
It's the shuffle they only do it here.
The Nola shuffle so get yourself in gear.

The people I knew from Uptown to Lake View
we hit the Maple Leaf and partied down until two.
I hope you can remember when cruisin' was a thrill
all the way down Carrollton to Camellia Grill.

It's the shuffle you got to move your feet.
The Nola shuffle It's in the people you meet.
It's the shuffle they only do it here.
The Nola shuffle so get yourself in gear.

But now I try to find new ways to have fun.
There's nothing like sittin' on the levee in the sun.
Those days of doing shots to wash down spicy gumbo
are likely far behind but watch me do some mambo.

It's the shuffle you got to move your feet.
The Nola shuffle It's in the people you meet.
It's the shuffle they only do it here.
The Nola shuffle so get yourself in gear!

 

 

Home is a Destination

-lyrics by Bill Branley

 

Love, you're going alone
to a land far away
sweet and blue.

Love, please stay with me
in my garden of life
soft and true.

Love me forever and ever
and hold me closer than I've ever dreamed.
May we find our happy life
together together ever.

Go if you must
I will stay here for you
please know that I

Love you forever and ever
and hold me closer than I've ever dreamed.
May we find our happy life
together together ever.

 

Night Watchman

-lyrics by Bill Branley

 

I'm keeping watch
all over you
all night and day
all day and night.

I check your door
I check your window
I check your heart
I check your soul.

I am the watchman
watching over you.

I never sleep
I never eat
I'm on the job
I'm everywhere.

I don't forget
I know what's true
I never judge
I'm all for you.

I am the watchman
watching over you.

You're part of me
but you don't know
where you are from
or what you are.

You won't believe
what you can do
I'm always here
I'm helping you.

I am the watchman
I am the watchman
watching over you
watching over you
watching over you you you you.
