To start with I want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving..! This song was written by Harold-Georg-Barth. I heard it and wrote to him asking if I could add some lyrics and vocals and he said go for it so I did. Here's how it came out. Copyright 2017 all rights reserved. Lyrics below... What If Everybody Had A Gun Guitar… What if everyone had a gun would that change anything? Would we find the world more dangerous for all us human beings? What if everybody walked around with a pistol in their boot? You treat somebody bad enough and they may just pull it out and shoot I’m asking how would life become… if everyone had a gun..? Bank robberies I’m guessing none if the customers inside Were all carrying a loaded gun that was strapped there on their side If everybody had a gun tell me what would they have to fear A peace we never knew before might suddenly appear I know you may think this sounds dumb but what if everyone had a gun? If everybody had a gun then everybody’s equal It would make the perfect movie deserved of a sequel If the gangstas in the neighborhood knew guns were everywhere Would they think before they drew a gun or would they ever even dare There would be no place that’s safe to run… if everybody had a gun If we were carrying a piece would that bring us peace of mind Would that make this space a better place where people’d more kind If everybody had a gun, would the hatred finally end If everybody had a gun would we all turn into friends? I betcha things would really change… if we could all go bang bang bang… Now some would say I’ve crazy some would say I’ve lost my mind But if everyone all had a gun who knows what we might find We might find we’d think things over before we all got really pissed Cause anyone who had a gun could just shoot us if they wished We might all be a little more forgiving less taking and more giving Is there a chance that we may find everybody’d be more kind If everybody had a gun It’s sad I have to devise a plan or suggest this as a cure But a gun in everybody’s hand would change our lives for sure Would everyone a friend become… if everybody had a gun Would the killings somehow all be done… if everybody had a gun… Would we all treat everyone nice? If everybody had a gun In case you didn’t know this, in the following list are places where it is against the law NOT to have a gun Kennesaw Georgia, Nelson Georgia, Nucla Colorado, Gun Barrel City Texas, Virgin Utah Art by Bernardumaine at Deviantart.com

For those of you who know me I have never done a cover tune on Fandalism. Here's a parody on Devo's hit song "Whip It", about my dog Cash and his infatuation with attacking his favorite play toy. No copyright claim to this what-so-ever. Source is YouTube video titled "Devo Whip it (Instrumental)" posted by Terry Jackson. Lyrics below... Crack that whip… Cash is such a trip Watch him attack… he’ll break the piggy’s back Well Cash loves his little pig… yes he digs it It’s his polka-dotted pig but he don’t kiss it He grabs it by its head and he whips it… He whips it… watch it shake… shake it up… get straight Throws it forward by its head he thinks it great to make it shake And whip it whip it good If his piggy can’t be found…so he can whip it He’ll be looking all around, so he can whip it… The pig cannot escape… he’s gonna whip it He loves to whip it… whip it good Watch him whip it… whip it good… Crack that whip… Cash is such a trip Watch him attack… break his piggy’s back Yeah he loves his little pig… yes he digs it It’s his little pig he digs… but he don’t kiss it Folks don’t get me wrong… he’d rather whip it He whips it… watch it shake… he shakes it up… get straight He throws it forward by its head he thinks it great to make it shake He whips it…watch it shake… he shakes it up… Get straight… he throws it forward… by its head Try to detect it as it shakes… He’ll whip it whip it good..!

I trusted You - from JC BINETTI and TYLER SELPH Here is a song Binetti wrote and posted on Fando as an instrumental 3 months ago. You can hear his original posting here. http://fandalism.com/jcbinetti/emDl When I heard it I contacted JC and asked if I could add some lyrics and vocal. Happily he agreed to let me have a shot at it and I took one. After sending him the vocals I had added I was very surprised to see his video and even though we did this over two months ago I told him we had to save it for the Halloween season. So here it is and just a note of warning... It's a little scary..! I TRUSTED YOU I Trusted You I trusted you and I don’t know why I ever did I trusted you… and all you did was make me cry I thought you’d never lie… but I… I was wrong… so wrong Now looking back… I should have seen But I was young and I was… green… know what I mean? You let someone… come in between you and I… And I don’t know why? But now all I do is cry… I’m crying tears… after all these years I trusted you… I trusted you I never guessed and never knew Oh yes it’s true… I didn’t have a clue That you were lying in another bed I couldn’t get that through my head Don’t try to tell me that you still care Cause when I need you… you won’t be there You’re leaving me for that other guy And you know me… you don’t really care how much I cry… I trusted you… and never should have I trusted you and you never could have… truly loved me You wouldn’t leave me… and when you left me You said you did you wouldn’t leave me… But I was dumb enough… to trust in you… I trusted you… I trusted

A few of you heard this earlier in an acoustic version. Here's "Tommy's Gone" in a fully produced studio version with a video to go along with it. Please pardon some of the blurry images but I use only photos on Google that people have no copyright to and there are not many to chose from that way. If you listen closely you'll hear many of Tommy's song titles throughout. How many will you know? Composed and written by Tyler Selph All Vocals... Tyler Selph All instruments... Jamie Laritz of Dogearstudios Recorded at Dogearstudios in Florida by Jamie Laritz I hope you'll enjoy this and please search for it on Spotify, Google play, Apple ITunes and Amazon among others. I hope to have it available by 10-30-2017. Now the lyrics "Tommy's Gone" First they said he was dead then said they were wrong But the Waiting Is Over we all now know he’s gone So I’m singing this song and saying goodbye To a person Freefalling now Learning To Fly away today… She Was An American Girl yeah he told us all so His Guitar Gently Wept while he put on a show Mary Jane a romance of which he wrote a song And they shared one last dance before she moved on… Ah yeah… before she was gone... And he said I Won’t Back Down to those damn record labels And he charted his own course because he was able And he didn’t Breakdown was a tough Refugee You Got Lucky... if you knew him indeed… so lucky were we… It was true what he said back in seventy nine Even The Losers get lucky sometimes But I guess like Tom said now it’s Time To Move On You Don’t Know How It Feels... seems unreal that he’s gone away... today But Tommy’s Gone… yeah he’s moving on I envision him now... Running Down A Dream And I’m grateful God for giving us this cool human being But I Should Have Known he’d be leaving this place And I pray that the Lord will show his Saving Grace... And as I move forward I’ll hear his songs play And they’ll always bring memories of sweet younger days On the radio waves now his spirit lives on And we’ll never forget the way Tommy played a song But Tommy’s gone… Long gone… RIP Tommy

"I'll Follow You" Nothing particular about the melody here folks but it's the message I hope you'll get here more than anything. It's a song which I hope will inspire all original artists to start following other original artists on Spotify. I don't know about you but I sure could use a little more money these days... As the song says... it's a crazy idea but I'm willing to take people names if they send them to me below and start following them on Spotify today if they will be kind enough to reciprocate. Why not..? Copyright 2017 by Tyler Selph, all rights reserved. Peace everybody..! :-) Please share with your friends my friends.. :-) Now the lyrics... I’ll follow you if you follow me This morning I woke up and jumped out of bed This crazy idea had just popped in my head I thought of a way we could play and get paid And I’m gonna to share my idea here today I don’t know if you’ve done it but here’s what I did I posted my songs right here on DistroKid And the more people listen the more I get paid And the more people hear the cool songs I’ve played Well I think it makes sense here for me to ask you What’s the most logical thing we could do? And it may never work but heck why not let’s try To follow each other right now on Spotify So I’m asking you to just send me your name I’ll follow you friend and hope you’ll do the same It’s one crazy scheme and I know it sound funny But couldn’t we all use a little more money? So today I’ll be finding you and I’ll be following you And I’m hoping that you will come follow me too It’s a crazy idea but who knows it may fly And we’ll all never know till we give it a try So I’ll follow you and hope you’ll follow me We can follow each other and do it for free But who knows how much money we could make If we all started following each other today… :-)

Down By The River Side by Tyler Selph & Jean Chris Binetti. About a month ago Jean-Chris asked if I would be interested in singing one of his songs. He sent me the music and lyrics and I really liked it. I asked JC if he would be okay if I changed some of the lyrics and thankfully he said yes. I loved his hook so I left that in which is the title of the song and I kept that theme but just built a story around the Riverside theme. I know JC posted this one already but I wanted to wait a week or so to try to give others a chance to hear it if they happened to have missed it before. Thanks for all your comments on JC's posting and I hope you will enjoy this one if you have not heard it yet. Now the lyrics... Down by the riverside Down by the riverside… cold beer in my hand The perfect place to run and hide…yeah I’m a broken man I think back to that rainy day when I first met you here You chased all the clouds away… and made the sun appear Down by the riverside that day… you chased those clouds away Down by the riverside with you… it was like a dream come true When I fell in love with you… that day… you stole my heart away Down… by the riverside Down by the riverside… my beer is now half through I take a sip and wonder why… why I ever fell in love with you You told me from the very start your heart could not be won But I was falling so in love and having so much fun Down by the riverside you came… and you made my whole life change Down by the riverside that day… you stole my heart away It’s true… I fell in love with you…that day Down by the riverside my beer is nearly gone Just like the river flowing by… guess it’s time you move along I wish that I could find some way you would stay here with me But if you do come back one day… then this is where I’ll be Down by the riverside me and you… it was like a dream come true Down by the riverside you and me it was the perfect place to be Down by the riverside that day… I’d say you stole my heart away Down by the riverside…

Your Secret by Tyler Selph copyright 2017 all rights reserved A new song of suggestion to those who may be keeping secrets they need to let out... Hope you enjoy it... Lyrics below 'Your Secret" So you’ve got a big secret that you’re hiding inside So many feelings afraid to confide A secret so secret that you’ve not told a soul But this secret you’re keeping well it starts to get old It’s growing so old So many fears all those tears that you’ve hidden Doing those things you wish you never did and Afraid to display or to say how you feel So your keeping your secret it won’t be revealed But a secret as secret as yours seems to be Can wear on your heart and appear on your sleeve It can screw up your karma can drive you insane A secret like this one can mess with your brain It can drive you insane So I’ve a suggestion I hope you will try Cause it’s not very fun when you’re living a lie Set it free and you’ll see how much better you’ll feel Time to give up your secret it’s time to get real Show how you truly feel Come out of that shell that you’re hiding inside Be true to yourself and have nothing to hide Telling the truth is the best thing to do Just look what this secret is doing to you But these secrets your keeping there keeping inside They’re too much too bare and they’re too hard to hide And the longer you try to deny what is true The longer the secret keeps eating at you Yeah these secrets your keeping there inside your heart Will slowly destroy you and tear you apart No you must let it out and be true to yourself Cause its hurting you more… than anyone else… So I’ve a suggestion I hope you will try Cause life can be hell when you’re living a lie Set it free and you’ll see how much better you’ll feel Time to break out your secret… it’s time to get real Let the secret be revealed and you’ll see how you’ll feel How it feels to get real…

They Called Me Pendejo by Tyler Selph copyright 2017 all rights reserved Just a goofy song about a stupid guy who went on a vacation to Mexico and doesn't know the language... Hope you enjoy it. Soon available as are all my tunes on Spotify Groove music, Google play Amazon and more... “They Called Me Pendejo” I’d been planning a trip so I boarded a ship for a cruise down to lovely Cancun I’d heard of this beach where the women were sweet and was hoping to get there real soon When I arrived on the shore there was much to explore pretty soon found my way to the bar Didn’t speak any Spanish but still I could manage with women not getting too far As I drank at the bar… at the bar… After having a few too many a brews and many a shot of hot rum I kinda got loud at everyone in the crowd started thinking they all must be dumb I had told them my name and I know this sounds strange But not one of these guys seemed to know And I still don’t know why they forgot my name’s Ty And they called me instead… Pendejo Yeah they called me Pendejo Yeah they called me Pendejo… that’s the name I would hear. Say Pendejo… how long are you here Hey Pendejo… how are you in Cancun They said Pendejo… hope you’re leaving soon Now I’ve tried and I tried but I still don’t know why all the guys were all acting so ticked They were waving their hands at me while I was dancing with all the fine Mexican chicks. So I asked this young lady and she told me maybe so both of us walked out the door. We went to her place and we had quite a night in the morning woke up on the floor And I’ll never forget that wild night in Cancun the memories will remain Of a bar on the beach where it seemed out of reach for the folks to remember my name And they called me Pendejo… that’s the name I would hear. Yeah they’d call me Pendejo… they’d say how long are you here And they’d call me Pendejo… why are you in Cancun And they’d all say Pendejo… hope you’re leaving soon… Pendejo Yeah they’d call me Pendejo… why that is isn’t clear But they’d call me Pendojo… every time I’d appear And they’d say hey Pendejo why are you in Cancun Say hey Pendejo are you leaving soon On my trip to Cancun

I heard Tom Petty had passed away and was very surprised and saddened. He had just finished up a very successful tour and even sold out his last three shows in the Hollywood bowl in last month.So sad to hear the news and then hear it wasn't true? A crazy way to go but I'm sure Tommy enjoyed the attention... or at least I hope so... Anyway... I felt like writing him a poem which I posted here yesterday. This morning I put my poem to music and hope you like what I came up with. I have used the titles of 16 of Tom's songs throughout the lyrics and I hope you enjoy it... "Tommy's Gone" well The Waiting is over… heard the news and I cried.Cause I now know it’s true such a cool guy has died.So I’m singing this song and I’m saying goodbye.To a person Freefalling now Learning To Fly away… She Was An American Girl yeah he told us all so.His Guitar Gently Wept while he put on a show.Mary Jane a romance of which he wrote a song.And they shared one last dance before she moved on… Ah yeah… before she was gone...He said I Won’t Back Down to those damn record labels.And he charted his own course because he was able.And he didn’t Breakdown was a tough Refugee.You Got Lucky... if you knew him indeed. It was true what he said back in seventy nine.Even The Losers get lucky, get lucky sometimes.But I guess like Tom said now it’s Time To Move On.You Don’t Know How It Feels seems unreal that he’s gone away today.But Tommy’s Gone… he’s moving on. I envision him now Running Down A dream.And I’m grateful God for giving us this cool human being.But I Should Have Known he’d be leaving this place.And I pray that the Lord will show his Saving Grace... And as I move forward I’ll hear his songs play.And they’ll always bring memories of sweet younger days.On the radio waves now his spirit lives on.And we’ll never forget the way he played a song.But Tommy’s gone… Long gone… RIP Tommy

Here is the original track on Signum's site. Hear the original track here. https://youtu.be/qohEfEjXITMI Now the lyrics "Fairy Tale Ending" I hope for a fairy tale ending… And I wait for a make-believe end…I wanna ride off on a white horse… off to a world of pretend…Pretending that you are my princess… pretending that I am just a toad You hear me and find me defenseless kiss me and watch me explode Explode into your shining prince on a white horse to take you away But it’s all just a dream I’ve been dreaming… reality so far away…My friends they all say I’ve gone crazy say I’m way out of my league Yet I find you truly amazing… full of suspense and intrigue My horsie right now is a Kia… not a horse that was made to impress And I’m certain that I’ll never see ya… in my passenger’s seat in a dress… But I hope for a fairy tale ending… I wait for a make-believe end… I wanna ride off on a white horse… off to a world of pretend… Pretending that you are my princess pretending that I’m just a toad You hear me and find me defenseless kiss me and watch me explode Into your shining prince… white horsey to take you away But it’s all just a dream I’ve been dreaming… reality so far away…

"Man On The Corner" copyright 2017 by Tyler Selph Also available on Spotify, ITunes and more.Hey everybody..! Well I have many new collabs going on right now and they're going to be posted soon but for now, here's an older live performance I found on VHS and I apologize for the poor video quality but I felt the performance was worth posting and I hope you enjoy it... Lead vocal- me Lead guitar- Bo Barbot Bass guitar- Andy Shaw Drums- Bobbi Gruhler Lyrics below I saw an old man standing on the corner In ragged pants and a tattered vest I wished for this guy it was a little warmer But a cold front was coming from the West He holds a sign in his weary hands That tells me that he'll work for food He hopes that you'll toss some change into his can but most folks just aren't in the mood... Is this guy a victim of society? Or was this guy just born to lose? And though I don't believe this could ever happen to me... I'd sure hate to be stuck in his shoes. Where if you're one of the fortunate ones...You'll get in the YMCA But if they don't have enough room there for you then where the hell else will you stay..? Well a box ain't too bad in the Summertime It's easy to handle the heat But it gets real damn cold in the Wintertime When if falls below 30 degrees And if you don't mind standing in a long line You might get some soup they hand out You can smell that food but you still can't conclude you'll get there before it runs out..! No you can't guarantee a thing when you're out in the street..! Could we be related to this old man You might think your chances are slim But you best put away every penny you can and pray you don't wind up like him Said you best put away every penny you can and pray you don't wind up like him. Yeah you best put away every penny that you can...

I Lit A Candle For You by Tyler Selph. Copyright 2017 all rights reserved.Here's one I wrote a few years ago and recorded a few months ago but just had re-recorded by my friend Jamie Laritz of Dogear Studios with studios in both Ft Myers FL and Nashville TN. He is an incredible musician and recording technician. He plays all of the instruments on this song and did all the editing & mixing. All I had to do was sing the vocals when he was done with all the tracks and how easy is that? This song is also available on iTunes and Spotify. Now the lyrics... "I Lit A Candle For You" When I invited you for dinner I was hoping you’d say yes. And when you asked what I was serving I told you, you would have to guess You smiled when I suggested that we dine in candle light…And in the end you said alright… And I had dreamed of this night…So I lit a candle for you baby… And I... I was hoping maybeThat you would make my dream come true And I might... share just one night with youSo I lit a candle as I waited for you… I lit a candleI placed the candle on the table as I polished up the place Stood thinking of the way the candle-light would shine upon your face And I hoped that you would like my place and hoped you'd be impressed As I looked into the mirror hoped you like the way I'm dressed? But suddenly I noticed that the night was getting late I wondered where you were you said that you'd be here by eight I thought by now that you’d have had a lobster on your plate.Instead I'm only wondering and I guess you're running late.But I lit a candle for you baby cause you told me, told me you'd be there And I set the candle there on the table with fine wine for us to share And now I watch the candle melting see the wax all dripping down And I feel like such a loser and I feel like such a clown… Cause I lit a candle for you baby… but soon… soon it will go out... I guess the date you made with me… You simply… forgot about And as the candle keeps on melting it becomes a work of art And I'll never let you know how much you truly broke my heart...

Cheryl Marie, melody and lyrics by Tyler Selph, copyright 2017 all rights reserved. This song is about how my wife and I met many years ago but it wasn't until many years later we met again and got married. This song was posted about a year ago but I have had my friend Jamie re-work the instruments and I've added the vocals. Hope you enjoy it. Cheryl Marie Was it all just by chance we met that night in that bar And the two of us danced then we took a ride in my car You were only 19 and looked so good in those jeans And it seemed like a dream That you were with me And it was so nice to be With sweet Cheryl Marie Way back in 83 We drove to a party but nobody showed So we jumped in my sports car and we hit the road Then we parked on a hillside you let my fingers explore And we both wanted more We drove back to my place and made our way to my room But somehow we passed out… from all the drinks we’d consumed But neither one worried no neither one of us cared Cause we weren’t in a hurry no we weren’t going nowhere In the morning I woke up and you still there by my side Seemed you wanted make love you had that look in our eyes But before you would let me would let me proceed. You said, don’t ever forget me… My name is Cheryl Marie Don’t you dare forget me That’s what she said to me Back in 83 We drove through the night She was holding on tight She said faster and faster It was love we were after She was so full of laughter Sweet Cheryl Marie As sweet as could be Young and wild and carefree Sweet Cheryl Marie…

In A Perfect World, copyright 2017, all rights reserved. This is a song I recorded about a year ago but just had re-done by my friend Jamie Laritz. Also available on iTunes, Spotify and other online sites. Hope you enjoy it. Lyrics below. In a perfect world You would win every game And in a perfect world there is no one to blame In a perfect world there’d be no right or wrong In a perfect world everyone..... just gets along In a perfect world But a true perfect world that’s impossible see And the truth is that’s something that never could be There’s a reason why people always disagree Cause what’s perfect for you isn’t..... perfect for me Are you starting to see? If the pitcher strikes out every batter he meets They all call that a perfect game but was it really you see Although he seemed perfect when he won that game Was the pitcher so perfect or were the batters just lame? That were playing the game... Let’s say that somebody has big party plans And their praying the rain will not mess up their plans But the farmers depend on their seeds all to sprout And they’re praying for rain cause there’s been a long drought... Have you figured this out? Oh this world isn’t perfect oh no no it’s not Take a good look around and you’ll see what we’ve got It’s a world full of war where the innocent fear It’s a world far from perfect that’s perfectly clear Let’s say that a soldier who fights for his life Has to shoot someone else or to stab with a knife To him it seems perfect he somehow survived But was it really so perfect when the other guy died? At the edge of a knife And his mother she cried… Long into the night… In a perfect world there’d be no fighting at all In a perfect world not one more soldier would fall In a perfect world people there’d be no war And a perfect world’s what we should all be... fighting for In a perfect world… in a perfect world… in a perfect world… in a perfect world...

Goodbye… So Long… Farewell… Lyrics I knew right from the start that you could break my heart would tear my world apart and so I stayed away You wore your blue jeans tight and had them ripped just right to whet my appetite and you just loved to play To play with hearts of boys to you they are just toys they’d fall in love with you and then here’s what you do You’d simply write a note and in it what you wrote would tear their fragile worlds apart You’d leave your note on their bed and they read what it said it really messed up their heads when they read Goodbye… so long… farewell… and we’ll see ya later Goodbye… so long… farewell… see ya later alligator Goodbye… so long… farewell… So me I stayed away and when you’d look my way I’d look the other way I would not give away That I was hot for you like all the other dudes then right out of the blue I got pursued by you You held her body close thought I might overdose you whispered in my ear why don’t we disappear? I didn’t have a clue what you were gonna do what you would put me through but knew I wanted you You took me to your place yeah I was blown away there are no word to say the way you made me feel Your body soft and smooth you showed me all your moves I really dug your groove it all just seemed unreal I never guessed that I would be your type of guy and still I don’t know why why you gave me a try But I’m sure glad you did I’m glad I visited I’m glad I stayed the night cause you were out of sight But in my head I knew that you would leave just like you’re known to do So in the morning I jumped up and made some coffee and poured a cup I found a pad and pen and wrote I wrote to you a little note I left the note there by your bed and you can guess just what it said Goodbye… so long… farewell… and we’ll see ya later Goodbye… so long… farewell… see ya later alligator Goodbye… so long… farewell… it was great to know ya Goodbye, so long farewell… but I’ve got to go away… Cause I know that if I stay That you’ll break my heart in two And I know that’s what you will do So I must say goodbye to you So long… farewell… and I’ll see ya later Goodbye… so long… farewell… it was nice to know ya Goodbye… so long… farewell… Goodbye… so long… farewell… Goodbye

Here's a fun song I wrote some time ago that I recently had re-recorded by my great friend Jamie Laritz. He is the owner of Dogearstudios and in my opinion he is an incredible musician and recording technician. He plays all of the instruments on this song and did all the mixing. All I had to do was sing the vocals when he was done with all the tracks and how easy is that?

Now here are the lyrics so you can follow along..! "Goldielocks" Well she’s my Goldielocks and I’m her Papa Bear Yeah she’s my Goldielocks got that golden hair Well I’m coming home to find my place is a mess But I’m not here alone no I got a special guest Her name is Goldielocks and she’s here in my place Cause it’s her that I’m smelling… and her I can taste..! Goldielocks ohhhh and I’m her Papa Bear Well I come to the table and find all my food Goldie’s cooked a dinner that puts me in the mood Yeah she cooked my favorites and knows I like meat rare Knows just how to flavor it and nothing compares To my Goldielocks ahhaww and I’m her Papa Bear Yeah she’s my Goldielocks got that golden hair Well head to the parlor and sit in my chair Appears again that Goldie's been there If you ask me how I know I can tell you a lot I can tell that it’s Goldie Cause the chair is still so hot… oh so hot! Yeah she’s my Goldielocks mmm and I’m her Papa Bear She’s my Goldielocks got that golden hair Well I pick up the candle and I head up to bed Can’t wait to see Goldie lying there in my bed And who knows maybe she’ll kiss me and share And maybe she’ll have missed me when I wasn’t there Goldielocks ahhaa and I’m her Papa Bear Ohhh she’s such a fox ohhh and she loves to share Uh huh oh yeah Uh huh uh oh woh ho Yeah she’s my Goldielocks and I’m her Papa Bear

Mother Nature by Tyler Selph, copyright 2017, all rights reserved. Every once in a while I get inspired to try to make up something on the spur of the moment and see what happens. I'll turn on my iphone video recorder and just let things fall where they may. I would suggest you give it a try sometime if you never have before. It's a fun thing to do and who knows what may happen..? This one was created in my Brother-in-laws back yard on a beautiful day...! Enjoy..! Titled "Mother Nature"... lyrics below... Today I looked… and this is what I see… A beautiful… environment serene And there I got to watch a Bumble-bee… and it occurred to me… That this was destiny Mother Nature… it’s incredible, it’s impossible… that is not designed It truly seems to me to be divine…. Mother Nature… Woahhhhh… Mother Nature How serene, hear that bird oh hear it sing… It sings a sweet… sweet song… And all the other birds… they sing along... That’s Mother Nature…. Oooooh… That’s Mother Nature… Oowoawohoo.. Mother Nature… Woaoh... Mother Nature… Woaoh…That’s Mother Nature….

Here's a poem I uploaded a few years ago that I put to my friend John Corsaro's killer drum playing. See John's original video posted here.... http://fandalism.com/odddrum/el38 I title my poem "Teenage Thoughts" and it is about the way many kids seem to act and think this day in age. Hope you like it! Copyright 2017 all rights reserved.Teenage thoughtsI'll tell ya bout my mom and dad The two of them they get real mad It seems no matter how I try No way to see them eye to eye They call me just a teenage punk But they're the one's who are the flunks As parents they've completely failed And I'm the one who's getting railed They've treated me with no respect Since I quit school but what the heck Don't really care to graduate When I already have a life that's great My mom and dad they'll care for me And me... well I'll live here for free What more could anybody need Sounds pretty sweet don't you agree? My mom and dad they criticize It's time they opened up their eyes I see beyond all of their lies And yell fuck you while mama cries They say it's time that I move out But that's not happening no doubt I'm staying here till forced to leave And that's just how it is you see They're angry I dropped out of school They say I'm dumb but they're the fools I'm 18 and I make the rules And no one's calling me a fool I'll have my way and I'll live rent free No no-one's getting rid of me Don't give a damn that's plain to see My parents will take care of me I'm sick and tired of being told By people who are growing old What I should do how I should act It's time they all cut me some slack I take it easy cause I can It should be clear to understand. Why should I have to work so hard I make my daddy mow the yard I live right now on easy street Roof over-head free food to eat Take out the garbage? Don't think so Don't even ask my ass to mow I do what I want and I have no fear I steal my mama's last cold beer Call me a failure go ahead But while you're at it make my bed! You guys are wrong I've never failed And if I do wind up in jail I got good news good news to tell You'll be the ones to pay my bail Call me a failure if you like I'll tell you both to take a hike I'm living wild and living free Now go away don't bother me...

Here's one me and my friends from around the world put together. I wrote it, my friend Jamie Laritz played all the instruments on it, I sang it and JC Binetti created the video.The song title is If I Don't Have You... I Ain't Got Nothin Also available on iTunes, Spotify and other online sites as are almost all my tunes. Lyrics and melody - Tyler Selph- Williamston, Michigan Drums, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Jamie Laritz - Nashville, TN Vocals recorded by - Sean Barrett of LaBarrettory Studios - Williamston, Michigan Final mixing - Jamie Laritz of Dog Ear Studios - Nashville, TN If I Don’t Have You, I Ain’t Got Nothin I could be rich and famous…might be a movie star Ride around in big black limo or maybe drive a fancy car I could have every single thing everything this world could give But I know that that if I don’t have you… then I ain’t got nothin..! No I ain't got nothin..! I could earn a diploma and I could get some degree I could make a lotta money and I could buy anything I could make a million dollars or become a billionaire But I know that if I don’t have you… then I ain’t got nothin…! No I ain't got nothin..! I could travel all around the world from sea to shining sea But it wouldn’t be no fun at all if you weren’t here with me I could have a castle made of gold and servants at my feet But I wouldn’t be as happy as I am when you’re with me I could climb the corporate ladder go all the way to the top Be a doctor a lawyer or get rich trading stocks But it’s all superficial and it doesn’t mean a thing Cause I know that if I don’t have you… Then I ain’t got nothin..! No I ain’t got nothin..! Said I ain't got nothin..! No I ain't got nothin..! I ain’t got nothin..! I ain’t got nothin..! I ain’t got nothin..! No I ain’t got nothin..!

Here's one of my tunes put to a short video by a couple of my close friends Richard and Maurice. I had submitted a Christmas song to Ford for their consideration as an ad and this was what my friends sent back to me as if it was from Ford. It was a great prank on me as it was shown on my email as coming from TeamDetroitAdv.com and at first I thought it was the real deal and they were doing a trial run of it. Pay close attention to the credits at the end for a few hidden meanings in the names which I didn't catch until my friends told me... Anyway... I hope you enjoy it...

I had to re-post this song... I noticed in my first post I had cut off the ending. I wrote the poem and then Danijela Jovic, (SergeJ77 on Fando) was kind enough to offer a piano accompaniment. It is about a very close friend and once listened to, you'll know what happened to him. He will be sorely missed. I want to thank Danijela so much because without him on the piano... this would just be a poem... "One Guys Death" My friend of 10 years shot himself in the chest… three times… believe it or not? With a revolver… as impossible as that seems… But nonetheless we were told by those who discovered his body there were no sign of foul play… just one set of footprints… leading away from the van… which had gotten stuck in a farmer’s field. The footprints led from the van to a single wooden hunting blind… raised on stilts… approximately eight feet off the ground… It appeared that under heavy sedation from a mix of prescription pills he had been taking for back pain… that he made his way to the wooden blind…climbed the ladder and once inside…decided this was the place to end it all. I feel very saddened that although I had made many attempts to contact him over the past few months… I had not spoken to him... When traveling near his home my wife and I had called to see if we could drop by… but no one ever picked up the phone or called us back so we never did… and now… we both wish we had… I deeply regret that we did not go there and did not recognize until too late… what was really going on… I am also deeply troubled by the fact his wife… of 10 years… did not take care of him... and never reported to someone the severity of what was happening… and this in and of itself is a tragedy..! During the last weeks I have had so many questions? Even doubting whether or not it was actually a suicide? So I conducted my own investigation and was very thorough… Even visited the scene… yes I was there and saw the wooden blind where it all happened. I also studied the autopsy pictures of my friend’s face that I could not even recognize. A full face beard... a loss of over 50 pounds in less than two months? He looked as though he had been totally neglected and left to just wither away..! I cringed as I saw the bullet holes in his chest and I cried. It was extremely hard to accept but I realize now… that it must be true and he did in fact take his own life for there is nothing to prove otherwise… This fact I have to come to resolution with and understand, there’s nothing I could have done...perhaps… even if I had spoken to him… well it was his destiny. So I say farewell to you my good friend with whom I fished, and camped and I played and sang with and I want to tell the world… that this guy… will never be forgotten….RIP my friend…

We Cried, a poem written by Tyler Selph Piano by Danijela Jovic. I am honored to have Danijela (Sergej77) work with me on this project. Her melody was the perfect fit if you ask me. Hope you all like it... We Cried I came home late one night stepped through the door. I saw a strange man whom I’d never met before. My wife said it was awkward I would call strange. From that night on… my life it changed. I turned around as she stepped in the room. And I could tell I smelled her sweet perfume. And though she’d shown me its not me she’s really thinking of. She claimed that it was only me… she truly loved. I didn’t buy it… it was all a lie. Could see she’d fallen for that other guy. I stood and listened as she tried to justify. Then I kissed... that girl goodbye… And we cried and we cried… as I kissed her goodbye… You think in life you’ve got things figured out. Then find out what life’s really all about. You want to go somewhere just run and hide. To take your lumps and swallow all your pride. But now it’s over now for me and her. Hard to remember now it’s all a blur. I wish that we were still the way we were. But then again… I really don’t. Today I saw her briefly on the street. She softly spoke to me her voice so sweet. But still I knew that I could not repeat that scene. Know what I mean? And me and her we cried when I kissed her goodbye. I’d grown tired of all her lies.. We both had tears that filled our eyes… As I told that girl goodbye… yes we cried… we cried… and we cried…

I've Gotta Ask My Wife, copyright 2017 Tyler Selph all rights reserved. This song was originally a very cool instrumental created by Sergej77 and he allowed me to add some lyrics to it. Here is a link to Sergej77 original post. http://fandalism.com/sergej77/bqOB Hope you like it..! Lyrics... Had this friend of mine that came to me way back in nineteen-eighty-three Said now’s the time to buy some stock… in Apple, just two bucks a shot He told me I’d get rich one day Two thousand’s all I’d have to pay To own one thousand shares that great I’ll put that apple on my plate. I said to him that sounds real good you know I’d do it if I could But you know friend I’d be truly cursed if I don’t go and ask my wife first... "Happy wife happy life" :-) So I proposed to my sweetie pie… my friend said now’s the time to buy But she said boy there’s just no way that we could now afford to pay Two thousand bucks that’s all we’ve got… and it’s a gamble just a shot A shot in the dark with no guarantees so my wife no and would not agree... She was looking after me... Eventually I wound up broke my wife she left with another bloke The price of Apple stock look there… A hundred forty bucks per share..! A hundred forty bucks oh my just did the math and I wanna cry A hundred forty thousand bucks… My wife said no and I got fucked So where’s my wife you ask of me? Remember that friend in 83? She looked him up and he was rich ran off with him that friggin bitch That’s right she took on his last name in search of fortune in search of fame Just take a look here at my life… cause I had to go and ask my wife..! Ahhhh... but in the end I fared okay even though my wife and my friend ran away I remember back to eighty-three and what my friend had said to me Little secret too that I’ll now let out… see I’d bought 8,000 shares no doubt Seven hundred grand my friends do you like the way this story ends?

I Lit A Candle For You song by Tyler Selph, copyright 2017 All rights reserved. Here's one that I uploaded as just a poem a few years ago and decided to put a melody to it and here's the end result... Hope you like it... When I invited you for dinner you surprised me with a yes. When you asked what I was serving I told you, you would have to guess You smiled when I suggested that we dine in candle light… But in the end.... you said alright… and I had dreamed of this night… So I lit a candle for you baby… and I, I was hoping maybe... That you would make all my dreams come true and I might.... share one night with you... I lit a candle… as I waited for you… I lit a candle... I placed the candle on the table as I polished up the place Stood thinking of the way the light would shine upon your face And I hoped that you would like my place and hoped you'd be impressed As I looked into the mirror hoped you like the way I'm dressed? But suddenly I noticed that the night was getting late Wondered where you were you said that you'd be here by eight? I thought by now that you’d have had a lobster on your plate. Instead I'm only wondering and guess you're running late? But I lit a candle for you baby cause you told me, you told me you'd be there... And I set the candle on the table with champagne for us to share Now I watch the candle melting see the wax all dripping down... And I feel like such a loser and I feel like such a clown… Cause I lit a candle for you baby… but soon… soon it will go out... I guess the date you made with me… you simply… forgot about... And as the candle keeps on melting it becomes a work of art And I'll never let you know how much you tore my world apart...

His Wife Wouldn't Let Him, copyright 2017 by Tyler Selph, lyrics in description. Here's one that was listed as just a poetry piece about 3 years ago but I decided to plop some music on it and here's the end result... Hope you all enjoy it..! His Wife Wouldn't Let Him Gambling late, way into the night The man’s on fire and his wife outta sight Poker's the game and they do poker right With his wife there beside him… he wins every night And everything is alright..! The cards are all dealt and he draws a straight flush Guy cross the table he raises a bluff But he's holding a winner there in his hand But his wife moves her hand and he understands and he folds… And he does as was told… Cause his wife wouldn't let him she made him give in And if he had won well a ton he would win But his wife wouldn't let him she motioned to fold And he loved her so much… that he did as was told. And his wife wouldn’t let him… She… he learned a long time ago… she's always right That's why he… keeps winning with her every night They all call him the gambler but no nobody knows That his wife's in control with the touch of her nose But nobody knows...? She touches the tip that tells him to hold She touches the bridge and it's time to just fold. She touches the left side he knows he can't win She touches the right and… he's going all in! Mmmm and this is how they both win..! Mmmmm… So that Saturday night, full moon up in the sky The wager ran up to a new record high And the crowd gathered round all to see history But his wife stepped away at that moment you see... Well he stalled and he stalled but… she never appeared What the heck should he do? Lose it all so he feared…oooh So he raised the stakes high and he… said I'm all in And at that very moment was when his wife stepped back in... Then alas the last card and who would have known His card wasn’t dealt and the crowd it all moaned And his wife she just smiled turned and walked out the door Cause her husband’s opponent had offered her more...

"Good with a Gun" Collaboration with John Corsaro I've never really attempted to do Rap music so here's my first rap effort. I asked John if he'd like to be involved in any way and he allowed me to pick any drum post he had uploaded onto YouTube and run with it. So I picked his tuned titled Rhythmic Joker VII and here's what I came up with. Copyright 2017 by Tyler Selph "Good With A Gun" 13 year boy and he’s home alone Don’t know now for sure why there was no one else home There and engaged in his video game when he heard a loud sound heard a loud bang There was one bang then two, heard it again, he realized someone else was breaking in So he ran to a bedroom where dad kept a gun and he knew how to shoot it cause his dad taught his son Mhmm to be good with a gun… that’s right Yeah his dad taught his son taught him all that he knew Taught his son how to hunt taught his son how to shoot And had he not time for the teaching he’d done Who knows what would’ve happened that night to his son? Mhmm… who was good with a gun… that’s right The boy ran to a room found the gun and clip racked in a round held it firm to his hip When he met the thieves the boy this is what he did say said you’d better all freeze or I’ll blow you away..! The thieves were all stupid and they all ignored they attacked and he fired two fell to the floor. The other one ran but not far it’s no lie cause there in the driveway… is where that guy died. Mhmm… Cause he was good with a gun, cause his dad taught his son… Police showed up their flashing blue lights found one thief with brass knuckles the other a knife They saw where the burglars broke through the door found them lying in puddles of blood on the floor 13 years old and the cops were all shocked a kid at that age how could he be such a shot... Just 13 years old and the cops were all shocked that kid at that age could be such a great shot But the truth is his dad yes his dad was the one who taught him to hunt and get good with a gun… Mmhmm… yeah his dad taught his son… mhmm and he was good with a gun… From when his dad taught his son… He was good with a gun… and he killed everyone… cause his dad taught his son to be good with a gun… Had he not done what he had done for his son who knows what becomes of his son… with no gun? Yeah his dad took the time to teach all he knew Taught his son how to hunt taught his son how to shoot And had he not took the time and all that teachings he’s done Then who knows what would’ve happen… that night to his son… Who was good with a gun… very good with a gun… Good with a gun… very good with a gun..!

This Song Is About You copyright 2017 by Tyler Selph If I were to write you a love song would you know it was only for you? Cause if written I’d keep it a secret that it’s you who I’m singing it to That’s right I would never tell no one who it’s written for I’d never say But if I were to write you a love song then the lyrics… might give it away... That’s what some folks would say… Cause if I were to write you a love song, it would tell you I’m so glad we met It would tell you I’m so very grateful Al Gore gave us all internet… lol Cause without him we’d not know each other without him I doubt there’s a way That we would have ever discovered or found one another that day... So this song is about you and you know that it’s true… That this song is about you… am I getting this through? That I’m so glad you found me and… I’m glad I found you And I’m hoping you’ll realize… this song’s about you... This song’s about you… So now one last clue I have for you that I hope makes it perfectly clear That this love songs for you and you only, for you and you only my dear For if not for a letter you sent me there’d be, be no song here to write And you know I can only keep dreaming... of sleeping beside you tonight... and you know this is right… Not beside you tonight... So this song is about you… and you know that it’s true… That this song is about you… am I getting this through That I’m so glad you found me and I’m glad I found you And I’m hoping you’ll realize… this song’s about you… and you know that it’s true...

I wish I could take credit for the melody line here but I think the Stray Cats as mentioned below may have dibs on that. Actually I did a little research and as it turns out Richard Hell & The Voidoids did a song called Blank Generation having this same progression which came out about 5 years before Stray Cat Strut was released. Some say Brian Setzer of the Stray Cats stole the progression but who knows? Here's a link to the tune if you're interested... You'll find the song at the 16:54 minute mark. https://youtu.be/UkTs883qImY Now the lyrics to my song titled Julio's Song. Copyright 2017 by Tyler Selph Julio he's a ladies man and that's all that we really knowWhere he came from nobody knows andnobody knows where he'll go...Out of nowhere he seems to appear.. and he buys everybody a beerWhere he goes all the chicks gather round...Yeah that's where all the babes can be found with Julio... Julio...The women all love him and the men all just wish he would leaveHow does Julio always show with up... with girls on each sleeveJulio..! Julio..!Ahh...he never eats candy he's just too sweet and he mesmerizesthe girl's that he meetsHe's a man full of love and knows how to romanceAll the girls hope that Julio... gets in their pants! Julio... Julio...He's a man full of mystery and he gets all his wine and his women for freeWhen I saw him last night I would swear it's a fact he had three..!When Julio plays guitar and he sings all the ladies they want give Julio everythingTo be by his side and to have a few kids but Julio that's not the way that he lives... Julio... that's Julio...They all tell Julio they... love him and so and they hope and they pray that he'll let his feelings show... but Julio always has somewhere else to go... Julio...Julio... Julio... Julio...

A fun song about St. Patrick's Day. I hope you enjoy it... St. Patrick’s Day..! St. Patrick was born long ago in this world as a boy he was taken one day To the Irish a slave until he had a dream of a ship that would take him away... If you study you’ll learn that one day he returned to the land that had kept him in chains And you’ll see what he did was convert all the pagans oh yes he did make quite a change..! So they made him a Patron and when he did die I’ll not lie that he paved all the way For those who had listened converted to Christians and that’s why he’s famous today..! So why all the beer well that’s not really clear but it’s clear that the beer will be green And they’ll put it away by the pint all the day and get ripped if you know what I mean? So I’m raising my glass and I’ll toast to the past and the Saint who deserves to be cheered So here’s to St. Patrick come on raise it up but make sure that’s your mugs full of beer..! Pass one over here..! Yes its St. Patrick’s Day and we’re going to have a parade..! And we’ll all get drunk its okay it’s finally St. Patrick’s Day Yes it’s St. Patrick’s Day and we’re going to have a parade And we’re going to drink lots of brew And you know that’s just what we will do. On St. Patrick’s Day..! Finally St. Patrick’s Day So today is St. Patrick’s Day… and everyone’s happy and gay And you better wear green if you know what I mean or get pinched on the cheek of the ass! So we’re going to have us a beer And we’re glad everyone can be here And we’ll all say hip hip hooray! Cause it’s finally St. Patrick’s Day..! Ahhh it’s St. Patrick’s Day… we all get to behave… and get carried away..! We love St. Patrick’s Day! Ahhh now come on out and play..! Cause its St. Patrick’s Day..!

A song in A Capella that I made up as I went along. Inspired by the power of mother nature! Oh listen to old man Winter blow We've had with all of old man Winter's snow and as March marches in soon the Spring will begin But for now hear the wind as it blows... old man Winter...So you hear the strong winds and you know soon they'll end And the Spring will appear and the new new-born deer...And for now we'll just hear old man Winter... Winter blow...Just hear as he blows... Old man Winter's blowing And although it's not snowing... old man Winter blows...

"Fandalism" I'm sure I'm not the first to write a song about this wonderful place but I hope you enjoy this... By now we know the DJ on the radio has no control at all of what we hear... The record biz executives its they who give the order this is all too clear... The radio’s repeating keeps repeating keeps repeating everyday... Tune in today and they will play exactly what they played you yesterday..!… And that’s why I say... Thanks goodness Phil decided on that day five years ago That he’d create a place where great musicians all could go A place where… it don’t matter who you are… A place where anyone can be a star..! Here on Fandalism… what a place… where poets and musicians all create... Fandalism it’s the perfect place to be custom built by folks like you and me On Fandalism..! So now you know… the place to go… when radio has truly turned into a bore Come listen in and you’ll begin to realize that Fandalism... offers so much more And if you’re making music you must use it so your songs will all be heard Don’t keep your stuff up on a shelf all to yourself folks that would be absurd Come let it be heard On Fandalism what a site... you check it out and you’ll see I’m right Fandalism come and check it out you’ll see Custom built by folks like you and me… here on Fandalism Where it truly is… a place where we… adults can act like kids... Fandalism… come join in and help it grow Go tell everyone you know... bout Fandalism So I say thanks to Fandalism now Good gosh without it where would I be now? Probably searching for some place to play my songs But here on Fandalism… I’ve found a place where I belong..! Fandalism with my friends a place where hearing brand new music never ends Fandalism it’s where true musicians jam… here in Fandiland! In Fandaland… here in Fandiland… here in Fandiland… ah it’s grand in Fandiland..!

"The City", copyright 2017 by Tyler Selph Here's a live version of a song I first posted a few years ago... Stuck again in city traffic... another Friday afternoon... Everyone's in such a hurry... Cause the weekend will be over soon... I'm looking in my rear view mirror That guy he's riding way too close... I think if he gets any nearer... I'll hit the brakes and he'll be toast... hit the breaks and he'll be toast..! I think that's what he needs the most...! But why is he in such a hurry and why is everybody else... We live our lives in such a flurry... why do we always push ourselves? I guess it's living in the city I guess it's just the city way... I think I'm gonna leave this city I think I'm gonna get away... get out of the city..! I think I'm gonna leave today... yeah... yeah Cause when you leave the city... everything slows down... Yeah when you leave the city... you can get unwound... But if you never leave the city... then you'll never know... What it's like to leave the city... and let your problems go.... away....! Push and shove and stand in lines... Almost everywhere you go... You feel you're wasting so much time Where did another day just go? I think of living in the country... I think of living on a farm... no need to lock my doors and windows... No need to have a car alarm... No I'd be feeling safe from harm... No need for a car alarm... no no... But even if I left the city... and traveled somewhere far away... I know that I'd be back to see my city... Yeah I know I'd be back someday... because I'd miss the city... Yeah even if I went away I know that I'd be back one day... Oh yeah I'd miss the city.. And I know that I'd be back one day... Even if I left the city... I know that I'd be back one day..! Ahhh I'd miss the city..!

"World's Greatest Lover" copyright 2017 by Tyler Selph This is a remake of one of my very first postings which was more or less a disaster... "World's Greatest Lover" I hear her car a pullin in again it's late at night But I know where my baby's been cause me and here we're tight We love each other way to much to tell each other lies And that's why she lets me know it when she's seeing other guys And me you bet I'm lucky to have met someone so honest I'm the only guy she'll ever really love... that's what she promised She got me a coffee mug that reads worlds' greatest lover... And I'm starting to believe it's true cause she's tried so many others..! I'm the World's Greatest Lover.. heck it's... known all over town I'm the World's Greatest Lover...uh huh... at least the best my baby's found..! You've heard about menage a trois... Who woops em both that would be moi Don't mean to brag but c'est la vie... I know it's a drag but you can't beat me...! There'll be no doubt about it when my babe comes through the door I'll ask if she got lucky... she'll tell me yeah she scored..! She'll hold me close and whisper that I'm still the very best And boy will I be happy knowing... I still pass the test... I'm the World's Greatest Lover heck it's known all over town I'm the World's Greatest Lover... mmm least the best my baby's found. I'm the World's Greatest Lover... The World's Greatest Lover... I'm like no other... the World's Greatest Lover... That's me..!

Here's a live version of a song I released earlier. Every once in a while you have to get serious...... read more "Johnny" copyright 2107Johnny's feeling good tonight he buys another round. The waitress serves em up they do a toast then shoot them down.It's just another Friday night like all those nights before. And Johnny and his friends will soon be staggering out the door...Hey Johnny... are you sure that you're okay to drive? Cause I think this time... you may have had too much. But Johnny says that he hasn't drank that much at all... and when he gets home says he' going to call...But Johnny said he hadn't drank that much at all and when he got home... he meant to call. But Johnny doesn't realize just how much he's had... And his trip home is gonna turn out bad...Well the ambulance is racing down the street. And there lies Johnny's body on the ground beneath our feet.At 90 miles an hour on the interstate Southbound. He flipped his car and he flew a hundred feet before he hit the ground. And all of Johnny's friends are there And in disbelief they stand and stare...And all that anyone can say... Is why did Johnny have to die that way...?But Johnny said that he hadn't drank that much at all... And when he got home he meant to call... But if Johnny were alive today I wonder what he'd have to say..? Johnny... miss you Johnny... Johnny...Lord knows we miss you Johnny? Copyright 2017 by Tyler Selph

"Drive to You", by Tyler Selph Recorded a while back while still in Orlando. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night And I'm thinkin of squeezin and holdin you tight The telephone is so... close but you are so far away. And if I called what would I say? I'm sure by now you've probably forgotten my name. But that doesn't really bother me I couldn't hold you to blame. Cause it was just one night and it was such a long time ago... And I don't think you know how bad I wanna... Drive to you... babe I wanna see you again... Drive to you... Babe I wanna take your hand... Drive to you... will this feeling ever end... t To drive to you.. oh babe I wanna drive to you... I need to get back... to reality Cause I'll never see you again... Your just my fantasy... But I can keep dreamin.. and wishing that my dreams could all come true... But don't think that I'll ever lose the urge to... Drive to you.... babe I wanna see you again... Drive to you... Babe I wanna take your hand... Drive to you... I wanna take your hand... Drive to you... Babe I wanna drive to you... babe I wanna drive to you... Babe I wanna drive to you... Oh girl I wanna drive to you...! Thanks again to my band members Bo Barbot (lead), Andy Shaw (bass), and Bobbi Gruhler (drums). Photo from caranddriver.com

"A Handful of Nuts", Some may consider these lyrics suggestive. I prefer to call it a public health announcement of sorts. Copyright 2017 Tyler Selph Well I was there the day they laid you in that hospital bed Remember just exactly what the good doctor said He said your test results had really baffled ‘em all And there seemed to be no vitamin E in your body at all And they were all appalled… And what the doc suggested sounded strange I won’t lie And though I’m rather skeptical I’ll give it a try See the doctor told us not to worry we were in luck Told you and me that what you really needed is a handful of nuts A day and everything will be okay Just a handful of nuts… he said… Would help you find your way out of that hospital bed… Just a handful of nuts… A handful of nuts… a day He said a handful of nuts keeps the doctor away And you should have a handful of nuts every day It’s something that I must admit I don’t understand? But I’ve got some nuts for you… so hold out your hand And I’ll fill it up… with a handful of nuts… Oh I’ll tell you what See the nuts I’ve got for you they will make a great snack Let’s put em somewhere safe so they do not get wacked It’s a mystery how holding nuts can make you feel good? But I think you better hold em like the doc said you should... Said a hand full of nuts it’s the one thing you need A handful of nuts to get your vitamin E. A hand full of nuts… let’s let the treatment begin A handful of nuts I’m all in Ohhhh with a handful of nuts… I’ll tell you what…I’ll do a handful of nuts… I hope the ones I have will do for you Handful of nuts for sure… anything for a cure…

"You Write the Lines" copyright 2017 by Tyler Selph. Another old video I found when we were performing in the 90's for students at Full Sale in Orlando Florida. Lyrics below... You write the lines and I'll play the part Even though you know sometimes it's breaking my heart I've studied the script and I know every verse But it seems like my part in this play... is getting worse You write the music and I'll sing the song You won' even help out by singing along And I'm singing he part that you've written for me Buy why does it sound like it's so... out of key..! It sounds so out of key..! You know what I mean? I'll be the puppet and you pull the strings You know you can make do all sorts of things You can make me spring up and make me fall down Lord know you can make me behave.. like a clown..! I feel just like a clown..! You're the potter and I am the clay You know that with me you can have it your way. So you do as you wish as I spin on the wheel. And I don't think you care how it's making me feel..! Don't think you care how it makes me feel..! You write the words and I'll play the part Even though you know sometimes it's breaking my heart I've studied the script and I know every verse But why does it sound like it's always... getting worse...

Video of my band in 1995 at Full Sail's location in Orlando Florida which later became the "Roxy Bar" . Full Sail is a recording arts school for those who are trying to learn audio visual skills. There is no audience. This is just for students to learn how to operate the mixing board, stage lighting and video camera. Bobbi Gruhler on drums, Andy Shaw on bass, Bo Barbot on lead and me on vocals and rhythm guitar. Played That Way" Ever since I was a little boy I've been in love with Rock-&-Roll. Used to shake the walls in my room till my parents they would lose control! I'd turn it down little till they went out the door then I'd turn it up loader than I had it before..! Last week we through a party man I tell you we sure drew a crowd. Had those guitars cranking cause we love to hear it really loud..! I can hear my neighbors beating on the door Telling me to turn it down like they've told before I turn it down a little till they go away But it's louder when they leave cause it's gotta be played that way... Cause it's Rock & Roll It's gotta be played that way... Cause it's Rock & Roll Yes it's Rock..! Hanging out on the beach with my friends were all feeling good Somebody yells turn it up so I put my speakers on the hood Suddenly out of nowhere appears a cop Telling me that all that racket has just got to stop I turn it down a little till he goes away But it's louder when he leaves cause it's got to be played that way cause it's Rock & Roll... Yeah it's gotta be played... cause it's Rock & Roll..! It's Rock & Roll..!

A song I wrote and performed live with my good friend Bo Barbot in Orlando back in the early 1990's. Titled "Love Me Too" Why is it you are my best friend Why is it we ever met Why is it all of this most end How will I ever forget I had been searching for so long Thought I had found what I searched for Then suddenly everythings gone wrong And you've turned to walk out the door I know you can make it through life without me But is that the way that you want it to be Think of the things we've both been through People we've loved in the past Why couldn't we have been different Why couldn't we make it last I think as we part from each other Will I ever see you again Even though you're no longer my lover I hope that we'll always be friends And I know you'll make it through life without me But is that the way that you want it to be You say that we're over think we're through But I can't let you go without saying to you I love you... yes I do... I love you.. you know that's true... I love you... yes I do... and I hope you'll always love me too..! And I know you'll make it through life without me But is that the way that you want it to be I love you... yes I do... I'll always love you... You know that's true... I love you... yes I do. And I hope you'll always love me too... copyright 2017 Charles Tyler Selph

Chicago My baby and me we decided that we needed off for a while Wanted to find a fun city to check out that would make us both smile We hopped on the highway and where we’d end up didn’t know But before the day’s end we were both heading into Chicago… Pulling into Chicago Well the first thing we found as we traveled around were their tolls One after the next and we thought what the heck this is out of control And before we’d arrived we’d spent many a five dollar bill And we thought to ourselves if we see one more toll we’ll grow ill… On our way to Chicago… Chicago And we finally arrived at our Palmer Hotel where we stayed I can promise you people they didn’t give those dang rooms away And there’s nowhere to park so you bet you get charged for valet It’s nothing to laugh at its seventy-five for each day..! Oh you’ll pay in Chicago… go and stay in Chicago… You’ll understand what I say bout Chicago… Folks it ain't no joke you’re gonna go broke If you stay just one night you will see what’s not right in Chicago… Where it’s sad but it’s true that the toll booths will mess with your mind Nothing is worse than when you’re getting nickeled and dimed Yeah you go out to eat and you pay just to just to park folks its rough As if coming to dine in their restaurant just isn’t enough… Folks its rough if you’re there in Chicago They call it the windy city… ah… me… I prefer to call it spendy So we stayed in Chicago but couldn’t stay long Before we both knew it our money was gone We just stayed there one day and one night that’s no joke And when we finally left we we’re totally broke… From our stay in Chicago… You go you’ll pay in Chicago I know it’s not a nice thing to say but Chicago… mmm… Chicago…

Together It was a long time ago in a place far away Where they all lived in peace or that’s what they all say And the peace that was there was like no other where And the people were happy that they were all there There was never a worry and never a care There was peace in the land and everyone shared They all shared the same dream and they all got along And together they’d sing they’d all sing the same song They would sing we’re all one we are one and the same Though we’re all different colors and we have different names Sing no-one is better than anyone else And we’ll all stick together and we’ll all help ourselves And together they managed to achieve so much more Than they ever got done when divided before They had strength to move mountains and yes everyone Was surprised when they realized what they had all done But none would be done and those goals never reached If everyone hadn’t decided to meet To all join together and work it all out And that's why all their dreams were reality now A dream of existing together in peace A dream of realizing the fighting could cease A dream that came true for the very first time When they gave up their differences opened their minds The dream that had seemed just a dream until they All decided to put all their difference away And discovered that everyone all were the same Even if different colored and with different names...

Heroin People keep on buyin it and tryin it and dyin it seems People keep on shootin it and bootin it and ruining their dreams People keep on snortin it and hoardin it and losing their lives And that heroin thrives on those few who survive… a life on heroin Talkin bout heroin… But let’s say that you’ve tried it can’t deny that’s the best thing you’ve done Starts out as so euphoric can’t ignore it’s oh so much fun Ahh… but what’s so fun about it when without it you can’t seem to carry on But this is what you risk if you insist on taking this demon on… And I’m talkin bout heroin… Oh don’t you dare… go try… heroin.. Just one little dose and become comatose and so high… But it just takes one hit of bad shit and my friend you could die And those needles you are sharin without caring… no you don’t care at all Lose your mind if you can’t find it you will fail to read the writing on the wall when you’re hooked on heroin… and you’re cookin heroin… And dad’s and moms are all crying cause they’re children are all dyin and the dealers they’re just lying to keep their children buyin… more Just one little dose become comatose oh so high… But it just takes one hit of bad shit and my friend you will die And your mamma she’ll cry… cause you bought into the lie… When you had to go and try and look what happened when you died…from tryin… heroin…

In a perfect world You would win every game And in a perfect world there is no one to blame In a perfect world there’d be no right or wrong In a perfect world everyone..... just gets along In a perfect world But a true perfect world that’s impossible see And the truth is that’s something that never could be There’s a reason why people always disagree Cause what’s perfect for you isn’t..... perfect for me Are you starting to see? If the pitcher strikes out every batter he meets They all call that a perfect game but was it really you see Although he seemed perfect when he won that game Was the pitcher so perfect or were the batters just lame? That were playing the game... Let’s say that somebody has big party plans And their praying the rain will not mess up their plans But the farmers depend on their seeds all to sprout And they’re praying for rain cause there’s been a long drought... Have you figured this out? Oh this world isn’t perfect oh no no it’s not Take a good look around and you’ll see what we’ve got It’s a world full of war where the innocent fear It’s a world far from perfect that’s perfectly clear Let’s say that a soldier who fights for his life Has to shoot someone else or to stab with a knife To him it seems perfect he somehow survived But was it really so perfect when the other guy died? At the edge of a knife And his mother she cried… Long into the night… In a perfect world there’d be no fighting at all In a perfect world not one more soldier would fall In a perfect world people there’d be no war And a perfect world’s what we should all be... fighting for In a perfect world… in a perfect world… in a perfect world… in a perfect world...

When You're Down On Your Knees There are times when you’re hurting and feeling such pain And you feel like deserting giving up on the game When you’re pushed to the limit completely stressed out And lost in anxiety and your head full of doubt When you’ve reached the limit and you can’t take anymore And you’re starting to wonder what it is you’re here for? When you’re battered and beaten down on your knees Folks as hard as it seems… that’s where you can find peace From down on your knees… leave all your troubles behind From down on your knees… you can find peace of mind From down on your knees… you’ll gain strength as you pray From down on your knees… God will show you the way Cause when you’re on your knees see there’s nowhere to fall Give over your problems just surrender them all Pray that Lord’s spirit will help you find strength And grow stronger the longer that you’re… down on your knees Down on your knees… When your down on your knees… So if you’re feeling lost and completely confused Tried everything else but still seem to lose There’s a place you can find a solution indeed And that’s there on the ground… when you’re down on your knees Down on your knees… that’s where you can find peace When you’re down on your knees… Picture from https://c1.staticflickr.com/7/6126/6008730730_31aa07627c_b.jpg

That Old Guitar There was an old wood guitar and it hung in a bar And it hung there for years while the patrons drank beers No one knew where it came from or where it was found But it hung there for years and did not make a sound… at all... as it hung on the wall… No it never got noticed and never got played Didn’t have all its strings and the one’s left were frayed It did nothing but hang there for a decade or more Till that night that old man came and walked through the door And he asked our bartender what is that hanging there Said just a beat up guitar we’ve had there for years And he stood for a while then politely implored Can you take the thing down so I can see it some more… That old... guitar… Hanging there in our bar So we took the guitar and we brought it down And the old man he left then came back around. And when he returned he just just had two things An old tuning fork and a new set of strings And he took off the old ones and he strung up the new Then he tapped on his fork and he got her in tune Then he pulled out his pick and he started to play And the next thing you know We were all blown away as he played... that old guitar... Ohhhh he played and played and played that old guitar... Then the old man quit playing with a tear in his eye And he Looked to us all and said it's no lie Said he’d lost this guitar a long long time ago How it got to this bar said he just didn’t know Then he went back to playing till we closed the place down And we were all overjoyed his guitar had been found And when he finally quit playing that guitar for us all Well he took that guitar… And hung it back on the wall That old guitar... mmmm back on the wall Ohhh...Where it belonged That old guitar... Hanging there in our bar...

Here's one of my songs I had re-done by a female vocalist. Her name is Kim Everett. Love em and Leave em Well it would've been nice if you told me goodbye And I've called and I've called but I get no reply And I can't figure out why you don't wanna talk Gosh the least you can do... is say hey take a walk..! And the touch of your hand well I miss it so much And I can't understand why we can't keep in touch But I guess I should've known from the very first day... That you love em and leave em.. And you like it that way... Said you love em and leave em... And you like it that way... So I figure if you will not answer the phone Well you're probably wishing I'd leave you alone So I'm sending this letter and I'm setting you free And I'm saying I miss you... and I wish you missed me. And I'd ask you to call if I thought that you would But I'm starting to feel like you've left me for good But I guess I should've known from the very first day That you love em and leave em... And you like it that way... Yeah you love em and leave em... And you like it that way..! Said you like that way... yeah you love it that way... Said you like it that way... gotta have it that way..!

Voting For The Candidate I Hate The Least Election time is here again a new president Have you heard about the money that these candidates spent? One hundred million dollars folks that ain’t chicken feed Enough to feed a bunch of starving folks on the street That Donald Trump he’s famous yeah he’s been on TV Somehow I just can’t find this guy relating to me Hoping that his groping doesn’t mess up his plan The other needs assistance just to climb in a van They’re saying dehydration the heat made her faint Just a couple hours later she says she’s feeling great! What’s really going on with her is she fit to serve? Come on and tell us the truth that’s what we deserve..! See both of them are liars both of them cheat I’m scared if either one becomes commander and chief No I don’t care too much for Donald can’t stand Hillary I’m voting for the candidate… that I hate the least I’m voting for the one… that I hate the least Yeah I’m voting for the candidate that I hate least Watched another damned debate a catastrophe Which one of is better is a true mystery So I’m voting for the candidate that I hate the least I hate the least You know it really doesn’t matter how we citizens vote It’s the delegates who make up who’s in office here folks Get to the ballot box and pick who you choose Either way you go you’re still gonna lose And that Hillary you know see can’t be trusted Wiped those servers clean before she knew she’d get busted FBI put’s you or I behind bars for life Close their eyes to Hillary cause she’s Billy’s wife And Donald Trump you know he is corrupt If he wins this next election we might all go bankrupt He’s seems like a loose cannon a man on the loose Could start world war three and doesn’t need no excuse..! So I’m votin’ for the candidate I hate the least They smile for the cameras lie through their teeth Neither one could give a damn about you or me So I’m voting for the candidate… I hate the least I’m voting for one I hate the least One's the Devil one's the beast I'm voting for the one I hate the least Voting for the candidate that I hate the least Voting for the candidate

Is the Earth Really Flat? Folks you may not have heard it cause it’s not in the news And it may seem absurd but it’s there on YouTube Go search for flat earth and you’ll see what I mean What they’re talking about it could change everything See hundreds of thousands heck millions in fact Have all come to believe that the earth’s somehow flat I know what you’re thinking are these people just fools Did they not have a globe on their desk while at school? Just fools… But I’m telling you now and I know for a fact That the earth we live on could never be flat So ignore all the proof you may see on YouTube Cause the earth isn’t flat my friends… don’t get confused No the earth isn’t flat it’s as round as can be And they’ll all call you crazy if you disagree If the earth’s really flat then I’d have to ask you If the earth isn’t round then what else isn’t true? They’ve told me and you But folks I forewarn you if you check this out And you enter the Rabbit hole there’s no way out Search for the truth you’ve got to be bold Cause it’s hard to deny what you’ve always been told And what if it’s true even though it sounds strange Does it really make a difference and what does it change? But if the earth’s not a globe then what else could it be? Go ahead… check it out… if you love mystery Like me… There I’ve planted the seed will it grow or it die? Guess it’s all up to you to tell the truth from the lies You can search for yourself and you can gather all the facts Then believe the earth’s round…or concede… that it’s flat But I don’t know about that? Could the earth’s really be flat? I don’t know about that?

Got another kid coming fifth one now in six years and I wish I could tell you how happy I am But there’s something peculiar I can’t understand Yeah I must confess it’s a little disturbing how could I have missed what I’ve been observing I look at our kids and it’s become clear to see not a single dang one of them… looks like me… at all..! No not one of my children look like me at all yeah I’ll walk right by them when they’re there in the mall It’s weird they can be there right in front of my eyes and look like total strangers I just can’t recognize? And my friends they’ve all cared And show me and share I should take time and pay better attention They tell me my wife might be fooling around that’s why all my kids look like guys here in town... Now I’m watching my son as he’s playing ball he does look a bit like our mailman named Paul I look in the eyes of the one born last summer who much to my surprise… looks like Peter the plumber Oh no… and that’s a real bummer… Peter the plumber And now I’m looking around and here’s what I’ve found Yeah my kids do look like other guys here in town So I’m starting to wonder when I’m not home if my wife isn’t there by herself all alone? But when my babies born today please don’t say oh my he sure looks like Richard our pizza guy I’ll be proud and I’ll shout if I finally see that when that baby pops out… It looks something like me! Looks a little like me… Oh that’ll sure… be…. sweet! If it looks something like me… But we’ll have to wait and see… But we’re hoping it will be… Just a little like me… a little like me… But we’ll just wait and see… Picture from Jattdisite.com copyright 2016 by Tyler Selph

They started in on us very young with their cigarette bubble gum Didn’t care about anyone but themselves. When some of us went to school well we liked breaking all the rules And we all thought it was really cool… to start smoking…. had to start smoking… We’d get a break and we’d run and hide light em up and we’d all get high But now we all wish that we’d never tried… to start smoking… why’d we ever start smoking? Cause now we smoke every single day and yeah we give all that money away And we all wish we could find a way… to quit smoking… yeah we need to quit smoking… New Years Eve millions make a vow to give up smoking cigarettes somehow But two weeks later what’s in the mail cigarette manufacturers hope you’ll fail Yeah they only want you to stay their slaves don’t care if you go to an early grave… That just hope you’ll never find a way… to quit smoking… don’t want you to quit smoking… So you should take what you’ve left and burn em all in a fire While you pray that you no longer have the desire You’ll be saving your life if you know what I mean Turn your back to this demon they call nicotine… And quit smoking… oh yeah you gotta quit smoking… And you know I’m not joking… You just gotta quit smoking… Mmm… you gotta quit smoking… And you know I’m not joking… Said you’ve gotta quit smoking… And you know I’m not joking... So come on and quit smoking… Come on and quit smoking… Yeah you gotta quit smoking…

I could be rich and famous Might be a movie star Ride around in big black limo Or maybe drive a fancy car I could have every single thing Everything this world could give But I know that that if I don’t have you Then I ain’t got nothin..! No I ain't got nothin..! I could earn a diploma And I could get some degree I could make a lotta money And I could buy anything I could make a million dollars Or become a billionaire But I know that if I don’t have you Then I ain’t got nothin…! No I ain't got nothin..! I could travel all around the world From sea to shining sea But it wouldn’t be no fun at all if you weren’t here with me I could have a castle made of gold And servants at my feet But I wouldn’t be as happy As I am when you’re with me I could climb the corporate ladder Go all the way to the top Be a doctor a lawyer Or get rich trading stock But it’s all superficial And it doesn’t mean a thing Cause I know that if I don’t have you… Then I ain’t got nothin..! No I ain’t got nothin..! No I ain't got nothin..! Said I ain't got nothin..!

I knew right from the start that you could break my heart would tear my world apart and so I stayed away You wore your blue jeans tight and had them ripped just right to whet my appetite and you just loved to play To play with hearts of boys to you they are just toys they’d fall in love with you and then here’s what you do You’d simply write a note and in it what you wrote would tear their fragile worlds apart You’d leave your note on their bed and they read what it said it really messed up their heads when they read Goodbye… so long… farewell… and we’ll see ya later Goodbye… so long… farewell… see ya later alligator Goodbye… so long… farewell… So me I stayed away and when you looked my way I’d look the other way I would not give away That I was hot for you like all the other dudes then right out of the blue I got pursued by you You held her body close thought I might overdose you whispered in my ear why don’t we disappear I didn’t have a clue what you were gonna do what you would put me through but knew I wanted you You took me to your place yeah I was blown away there are no word to say the way you made me feel Your body soft and smooth you showed me all your moves I really dug your groove it all just seemed unreal I never guessed that I would be your type of guy and still I don’t know why why you gave me a try But I’m sure glad you did I’m glad I visited I’m glad I stayed the night cause you were out of sight But in my head I knew that you would leave just like you’re known to do So in the morning I jumped up and made some coffee poured a cup I found a pad and pen and wrote I wrote to you a little note I left the note there by your bed bet you can guess just what it said Goodbye… so long… farewell… and we’ll see ya later Goodbye… so long… farewell… see ya later alligator Goodbye… so long… farewell… it was great to know ya Goodbye, so long farewell… yeah I’ve got to go away… Cause I know that if I stay That you’ll take my heart away And I know that’s what you’ll So I must say goodbye to you Goodbye… so long… farewell… and I’ll see ya later Goodbye… so long… farewell… it was nice to know ya Goodbye… so long… farewell… Goodbye… so long… farewell… Goodbye Picture from this site https://www.pinterest.com/londaelle/portrait-ideas-taylor/

Immortality People ask me why I write and sometimes stay up late at night Searching for the perfect words to match a melody I’ve heard inside my head Running round inside my head There in my head I hear a tune and the lyrics they’ll be added soon I’ll toast it then I’ll post it on YouTube And I’ll tell you why that’s what I’m gonna do? Cause once it’s there it’s there for good a hundred years from now it could Be listened to my little song even though I’m dead and gone Yeah when they lay me in the ground my melodies will still be round For years and years and years you see it’s almost immortality That’s what it means to me So even though I’m dead and gone my melodies will carry on And when I finally pass away my songs will still be here to stay Perhaps they’ll play them in their cars or maybe play them in the bars They may come on the radio the fact is I don’t really know No I don’t really know But when it’s time that I move on you see my songs will carry on My songs will still be here to play I’ll be immortal in that way Like Elvis Presley, and James Brown who’s song will always be around I hope that my songs too remain when I am on a different plane On a different plane my songs will still remain Who knows when I’m beyond the grave I may tune in to radio waves To hear a song that I once wrote and I will know it note for note As long as YouTube still exists no reason for me to be missed That’s right I’ll always be around come hear my lyrics hear my sound No I’ll never really leave my songs they’re all a part of me And they will help me to achieve a state of immortality Yeah that’s what it means to me A state of immortality What I’m trying to achieve A state of immortality That’s what it means to me Take my place in history Immortality….Immortality… Immortality…Immortality… Immortality…

Cheryl Marie song by Tyler Selph copyright 2016 Cheryl Marie Was it all just by chance we met that night in that bar And the two of us danced then we took a ride in my car You were only 19 and looked so good in those jeans And it seemed like a dream That you were with me And it was so nice to be With sweet Cheryl Marie Way back in 83 We drove to a party but nobody showed So we jumped in my sports car and we hit the road Then we parked on a hillside you let my fingers explore And we both wanted more We drove back to my place and made our way to my room But somehow we passed out… from all the drinks we’d consumed But neither one worried no neither one of us cared Cause we weren’t in a hurry no we weren’t going nowhere In the morning I woke up and you still there by my side Seemed you wanted make love you had that look in our eyes But before you would let me would let me proceed. You said, don’t ever forget me… My name is Cheryl Marie Don’t you dare forget me That’s what she said to me Back in 83 We drove through the night She was holding on tight She said faster and faster It was love we were after She was so full of laughter Sweet Cheryl Marie As sweet as could be Young and wild and carefree Sweet Cheryl Marie…

The Skinny Pill When she was young still in her teens wore Tie-died shirts and faded jeans Stayed so busy... read mores hardly ate never worried bout her weight All through college stayed so skinny looking thin was all so in Graduated then got married had a baby things got scary And gaining weight she joined the gym but she still was not so thin again It seemed that she had lost her will then came along the Skinny Pill Then came along the Skinny Pill No more jogging no more diet all she had to do was try it If she could just afford to buy it Skinny Pill was all the riot So she gave Skinny pill a try got great results began to cry A tear of joy flowed from her eye that Skinny Pill it was no lie Soon thereafter as predicted it was clear she was addicted Skinny pills were so vindictive of course they all became prescriptive So she had to find a doctor who was willing to concoct her Some disease for which she needed those Skinny pills or so she pleaded Skinny Pills they worked so great she ate and ate and still lost weight Until she’d finally reached her goal but Skinny pills were in control So she got skinny all seemed fine but somehow there in her mind Each time she looked at her reflection fat was there for her detection So she kept taking skinny pills kept losing weight against her will And even though she ate and ate with Skinny Pills kept losing weight!With Skinny Pills kept losing weight She tried to quit but she just couldn’t this story ends the way it shouldn’t Kept on taking Skinny Pills until that day they finally killed her And Skinny pill well it denied that Skinny Pill was why she died They went to court their doctors lied said Skinny pill was wrongly tried But in the end glad to report the people had their day in court And Skinny pills came off the shelves the Skinny Pillers saved themselves So if you think you’re over-weight I think it’s time to contemplate And should be glad you won’t be killed by something called the Skinny pill You should be glad that you’re not killed by something called the Skinny Pill What they called the Skinny Pill The Skinny Pill the one that kills The Skinny Pill

Relax Relax and slow things down stop running round and take it slow Relax and realize that you don't have to worry so It's time to face the facts, cut yourself some slack Yes it's time to just sit back and relax... Relax and breathe in deeply yes completely let it go Relax and have no worries there's no hurry take it slow Relax for just a few... you'll be in a better mood... Have a whole new attitude when you relax… relax… Relax and close eyes and realize all is okay Relax close your eyes let all your fears just melt away Relax and just unwind everything will turn out fine Once you clearly clear your mind and just relax... relax Relax and just say screw it you'll get through it yes you will Relax there's nothing to it you can do it just lay still Relax and let the stress and all the mess just fade away... Everything will be okay... once you relax… relax… Relax and take it easy leave your troubles all behind Relax and take a breath for you must rest from time to time Relax and close your eyes and you'll feel so good inside Run and find a place to hide And just relax… relax… Just relax…

Pray for the devil I pray for the devil believe it or not I pray for the devil yes I pray a lot I pray for the devil and you should pray too Pray that the devil will not bother you! I pray for the devil I do it each day I pray that the devil will just stay away Pray evil satan stays out of my life I pray that he stays far away from my wife Pray that the devil will find someplace else I pray that the devil just goes back to hell Pray for the devil I know he’ll despise When I pray that the devil stays out of our lives... I pray for the devil may he find no reason To come and influence our next Christmas Season Pray for the youth and the old folks alike Pray they’ll all tell satan go take a hike Pray for the devil please pray with me now Pray for the devil pray with your head bowed Pray to the Father, the Son, Holy ghost And don’t forget satan... pray for him most To leave us alone and to just disappear Pray that he feels he is not welcome here Pray for the devil to just go away Pray for the devil pray pray pray... Pray for the devil and he'll stay away copyright 2015 by Tyler Selph

"Why is it so Cold Outside?" Copyright 2014 by Tyler Selph This is just a rough draft recorded on my cell phone. I'll have a studio version soon... In the headlines now and on TV... Say our world’s about to overheat. All our glaciers melting in the sea... and they’re trying to... blame me and you They say the temperature's on the rise and me I'm really not surprised I believe it’s time we realize... when we step outside the door It’s much colder than before! And why is it so cold outside? It really doesn't quite seem right You and I just have to step outside... And there's really no way to hide... It’s so cold outside We hear them all hypothesize Say the mercury's on the rise But I believe it’s time we realize No they don’t really have a clue, What mother natures gonna do... And what is up with all these record lows? Go outside right now and freeze from head to toe And why... is there so much snow? If you wanna know this too I wanna hear you singing too And why is it so cold outside? It really doesn't quite seem right You and I just have to step outside... And there's really no way to hide... It’s so cold outside... Why oh why... is it so cold outside? Why oh why... is it so cold outside? I wonder why... it's so cold outside? I wonder why... is it so cold outside?

His Wife Wouldn't Let Him Gambling late, way into the night The man was on fire and his wife outta sight Poker's the game and they do poker right With his wife there beside him there’s really no fight Cards are all dealt and he draws a straight flush The guy cross the table he pushes a bluff But he's holding a winner about to unfold His wife moves her hand and he suddenly folds Cause his wife wouldn't let him she made him give in And if he had won well a ton he would win But his wife wouldn't let him she motioned to fold And he loved her so much that he did as was told. Cause he learned a long time ago she's always right That's why he keeps winning with her every night They all call him the gambler no nobody knows That his wife's in control with the touch of her nose She touches the tip and that tells him to hold She touches the bridge and it's time to just fold. She touches the left side he knows he can't win She touches the right and he's going all in! So that Saturday night, full moon in the sky The wager ran up to a new record high And the crowd gathered round all to see history But his wife stepped away at that moment you see... Well he stalled and he stalled but she never appeared What the heck should he do? Lose it all so he feared So he raised the stakes high and he said I'm all in Then his wife re-appeared on her face was a grin. She was happy to see see that he was all in Then alas the last card and who would have known His card wasn’t dealt and the crowd it all moaned And his wife she just smiled turned and walked out the door Cause her husband’s opponent had paid her much more No his wife wouldn't let him cause she had a plan His wife wouldn't let him let him play his own hand Yeah his wife wouldn't let him decide on his own No his wife wouldn't let him… then left him alone No his wife never let him… now he's on his own His wife never let him… she left him alone... )-: Photo from www.theatlantic.com

Afraid that that if I did then I'd be cashed in by my wife! LOL So we have to make a shitload of money We have to make a shitload today We have to make a shitload of money Cause we've a shitload of bills we've got to pay And some day after making all this money from our work We'll walk into the office of that guy who's such a jerk And hand our resignation in that reads we quit today No not a word... just flip the bird then turn and walk away And when we do it holy cow... our friends will all say really?

Well I climbed outta bed, with a pound in my head I guess I drank way too much and now here I am clutching the toilet again... But I must have had fun and I know it sounds funny But I… can’t find… my pants...? I remember the party last night at my friends But that's pretty much where my memory ends Appears I may have drank drank a little too much And I know it sounds crazy but I somehow lost touch… with my pants and I don't know where they went. Did I fall in the pool and did I nearly drown? Did I decide to give my pants to lost and found? What the heck did I do with my jeans of blue? I wish I could remember but I haven’t a clue... Well I know it sounds strange And a little deranged. But I can't find my pants! Well I asked all my friends none could reply They said I had em on last night when I said goodbye They said I’d had too much to drink and I didn’t drive I guess I should be happy that I made it home alive Yeah I’m asking you please if you happen to see A pair of old blue jeans would you send them to me If ya happen to hear my pants and they're jingling do me a favor give me a ring Cause I… can’t find…my pants.. no no... said I can't find my pants!

"Google Searching" By Tyler Selph Copyright 2014 Google it's a tool that comes in handy I should say But if I we're you then I'd be careful searching it today There's words for sure that you'll avoid you know what they imply But some words bring you bad results no matter what you try If you don't believe that what it is I'm telling you is true Then this my friends is something that I'm asking you to do Before you do I'm warning you that what you're bout to see Could be what lot's of folks I know would call pornography! So go to Google images then type in any word No really go ahead and try it though it sounds absurd Looking for a childrens book then look up Goldilocks Still don't believe what I am saying try to look up box Google Google won't believe your eyes Google Google talk about surprised Google Google I'm here to tell you this Google Google search at your own risk Now some words that you search for they can really blow you're mind Take a long hard look at stiff and you'll be shocked at what you'll find. And yes there's more to come my friends you'll be a true believer If you think your brave enough then look up wood or eager beaver..! Oh yeah my friends you bet you'll have a whole lot on your plate More than you can eat I'm sure if you go search for penetrate But take a break from sex a while and take a look at skunk But once you're done go try this one go try to look up funk So take the Google challenge now and you'll see that it's true If you can find a word that won't show sex then good for you But almost every word you seek will greet you with some skin I guess that goes to show sex sells that's how life is my friends So there now you've been warned of Google images today I guess there's really nothing more I feel I need to say So if you take the time to do your research check it out Go try a Google image search to really freak you out. Snap-on tools Harley-Davidson the list goes on and on...

You ask if I still love you? You ask if I still love you and I tell you that I do But somehow you don't seem to think I'm telling you the truth You say you think my love for you has changed throughout the years You tell me you have doubts about me tell me you have fears But what is it exactly that you think I'm doing wrong How should I behave to make you see my love is strong Perhaps it's not enough that I remind you everyday That you're my precious sweetheart and I'll always feel this way Is it not enough to hold you close and snuggle while in bed What more do you expect from me than all the things I've done and said Do I not tell you daily that you're my pumpkin pie Do I not make it certain that I'll love you till I die And when you ask me how you look while wearing this or that Do I not tell you you look great insist that you're not fat And when you ask me if you think your new hairstyle's okay Do I not tell you ever time I like your hair that way And when you have a little bump or blemish on your face I tell you not to worry cause it's not that big a case And when you've cooked up dinner and you think it's not that great Who is is that still eats each bite and always cleans his plate So what am I suppose to do to prove my love is real Am I supposed to buy you things to show you how I feel And even if I bought you something every single day Is that the type of love you want measured by how much I pay And when I call you on the phone at least three times a day Does that not prove I miss you dearly while I am away And when I help with dishes and with cleaning round the home Do I not show I love you when we get some time alone And when my day at work is done and I come through the door Do I not pick you up to take you with me to the store To give you hugs and kisses and to say how much you're missed Do I not tell you that I love you do I not do this And when we jump into the car to drive to someplace new I'm doing this because I want to be alone with you And when we're out in public and we're walking hand in hand Surely this should prove to everyone that I'm a loving man So here I am I love you and I've one last thing to say The love I feel for you my dear will never fade away You've read this poem I've made it clear that this is how I feel I hope that now you realize my love for you is real

"Golf" By Tyler Selph Copyright 2014 Had this business partner a friend of mine You know that type that's hard to find Dropped by my shop and offered me a round of golf I figured heck why not I deserved a few hours off Now I didn't have no fancy shoes Much less a set of clubs to lose But a drink at the bar sounded pretty darn good to me But wasn't long fore I found myself at the first tee Now the only game I'd ever played Was baseball where I played okay But this thing called golf it's a totally different thing And I just couldn't seem to get down a descent swing Well it'd slice to the right and I'd over compensate Then it'd hook to the left My danged ball just won't fly straight Oh heck now it's flown off into the creek And my soaking wet shoes are starting to squeak And that drink at the bar's sounding better all the while Started thinking bout the fact I'd have to walk about another mile What's this... we're at the club? And we're only half way through So I told by buddy I'd buy him a beer or two We strolled into the lounge and proceeded to get unwound Heck I haven't a clue just how much dough I blew.! When we finally reached tee number 10 All the drinks I'd consumed started kicking in And for some danged reason I started to gain control? And the balls I was hittin they was getting right into the hole! So at hole 17 and swinging like a pro I saw there was only just one hole to go And I told my friend I was gonna whip him yet He just laughed out loud and he said wanna make a bet? Well I didn't really have that much to lose But he asked how much and I said you choose He said two hundred sounds pretty good to me. I didn't have that much but I said that I'd agree. Then... I mishit the ball and fall on my ass and it glances off a tree into two feet of grass And as I thought to myself what a terrible shot I watched my friend hittin a near perfect spot So here I was with a shot really tough Must've been 90 feet from right out of the rough And I closed my eyes as I took my swing As my friend waited for the fat lady to swing Well my shot hit the green and it started to roll And believe it or not headed straight for the hole And I thought for a second my buddy was just gonna die But I'm ashamed to admit it... my shot didn't get it And I broke down and started to cry So just when I thought I was all washed up With my friend and his putt bout a yard from the cup I made one final prayer as his putter contacted the ball Could've heard a pin drop as I watched his ball stop... At the rim... but it just didn't fall! But the sun had said bye so we called it a tie And my friends listen up cause I'm not gonna lie I feel I got pretty danged lucky that day And that's the last game of golf this guy's ever going to play! Good day..!
