Lyrics

All the Crown Jewels

Written by Nina Ricci

Chorus

All the crown jewels

All the crown jewels

Margaret said she’d show me all the crown jewels

An eyeglass loupe will magnify the light

And I can’t wait till I get the glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

 

Verse 1

Margaret’s got a leather-covered snake skin trunk

She told me to appraise and throw away the junk

It’s hard to see the diamonds, they’re all mixed in

With the custom costume brooches and the riff-raff shims

 

Chorus

Verse 2

I saw a gin and a genie in the facets of a gem

And I fall under their enchantment

I don’t need to steal ‘cuz I eat with my eyes

They’re filled to the brim with little flicker lights

Chorus

Verse 3

A Polish ring, a Polish ring

It’s porcelain white, just a little cracked thing

It don’t have a glitter, no it don’t have a sparkle

But I’ve got a fancy for it and I dream it in the dark, Oh

Got a fancy for it and I wear it in my dreams
Got a fancy for it and I dream it in the dark

 

Chorus

All the crown jewels

All the crown jewels

Margaret said she’d show me all the crown jewels

An eyeglass loupe will magnify the light

And I can’t wait till I get the glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

Club 47/Fare Thee Well, Joan

Written by Nina Ricci

 

Verse 1

Black raven skies and tresses blowing in the wind

Running to make her show, barefoot in the nighttime snow

She was barely 18, and already catching the light

Illumined in black and white, in a picture from '59

The crowds were lined outside

 

Chorus

Was it the glow the coffeehouse light that pulled the people in?

In Cambridge singing from the stage of the Club 47

 

Verse 2

One summer in Chicago, the Gate of Horn took her in

She was under the wing of Bob Gibson, pillowed in Odetta’s breast

Reviews from Newport read: her star is on the rise,

She still played Tuesday nights selling out the Club 47

 

Chorus

Was it the glow the coffeehouse light that pulled the people in?

In Cambridge singing from the stage of the Club 47

 

Bridge

In Greenwich Village she met Bob Dylan

And history was made that day

The ancient folk songs, turned to anthems

The times were changing, so the music changed

And the Cambridge angel had to go her way

She bid farewell to the old cafe

 

Chorus

Was it the glow the coffeehouse light that pulled the people in?

In Cambridge singing from the stage of the Club 47

 

Alt Chorus

Was it the glow the coffeehouse light that pulled the people in?

It was Joan Baez singing on the stage of the Club 47

 

Transition  

Years of concerts on the road, and a voice heard round the world

I was just fourteen years old, the first time I heard you sing

-- It was “Blowin’ In The Wind”

 

Verse 1

I was starting to learn the guitar, to write songs and to sing

When I quit the piano I think my dad thought “she'll never amounting to anything”

Then your voice came to me through the speakers in my room

I got sidelined on rock and roll, by my new folk hero

 

Pre Chorus

Years of concerts on the road, and leagues of fans adore you

Living history unfolds in a farewell circuit ending

Chorus

60 years on the music, with a voice heard ‘round the world

Fare Thee Well, Joan

 

Verse 2

I was reading your memoir for fun the summer I turned 18

Heading to Boston in the fall to start college classes in the spring

then your voice came to me through the speakers in my room

I started to see that I was treading the embers of the Harvard Square folk music scene

 

Pre Chorus

Years of concerts on the road, and leagues of fans adore you

Living history unfolds with a farewell circuit ending

Chorus

60 years on the music, and a voice heard ‘round the world

Fare Thee Well, Joan

 

(A special message to Joan)

Pre Chorus

Years of concerts on the road, and leagues of fans adore you

Living history unfolds with a farewell circuit ending

 

Chorus

Thank you for the music

I’ll carry it on

Fare Thee Well, Joan

Fare Thee Well, Joan

Fare Thee Well, Joan

Folk City

Written by Nina Ricci 

Verse 1

I step into the embers of fallen footsteps 

Of folklore heroes with bluesman licks

I hear them coming and breaking in new harmonicas

 

Verse 2

I stop on the sidewalk and watch the sway

Of ghostly teenagers of yesterday

They clap their hands and they snap their fingers

And comb back hair out of their face

 

Chorus

I always thought I’d move to Greenwich Village

I thought I’d shake the dust out of this town 

I’d be the kind of girl to bring the house down

To (and) make Folk City raise it’s roof again

 

Verse 3

Caffe Dante Italian eatery

It’s got seating outdoors facing the scenery

A young man in truck stop v-neck and cuffed sleeves

Reminds me of Dad here sipping coffee

 

Verse 4

I’m standing there looking for the Gaslight Cafe

Somebody says it’s been closed and I didn’t know that

I just look around saying “it’s gone, it’s gone”

And I think of going, going back home

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

It’s a strange way to lose dream

Standing in the middle of Manhattan

And I realize I got left behind

In the smokescreen of the 60’s 

I can make music anywhere, anytime, for any reason

In protest or peace or just in good company

 

Chorus 2x

 

Tag ending 

I’d be the kind of girl to bring the house down

and make Folk City raise it’s roof again

Oh! Give Me A Day

Written by Nina Ricci

 

Verse 1

A day in the life of a ballerina, or a day in comfortable shoes

I’d like to step into hundreds of scenes to get rid of the world and it’s views

 

Chorus

Oh, give me a day, (Hey!) Oh, give me a day

Give me a day with a road map, give me a day with a plan

Give me a day with an honest report, a “thank you,” and “come again, ma’am.” 

 

Verse 2

Oh give me a day in the courtyard, where gardeners dirty their hands 

They’re burying bulbs where flowers will rise with colorful blue and white bands

 

Chorus

Oh, give me a day, (Hey!) Oh, give me a day

Give me a day with a road map, give me a day with a plan

Give me a day, Oh, give me a day with a “thank you,” and “come again, ma’am.” 

 

Verse 3

Give me a day in the wheat fields with sunshine covered in haze,

And Celestial Fingers sifting through gold, and a breeze that blows me away

 

Chorus

Oh, give me a day, (Hey!) Oh, give me a day

Give me a day with a road map, give me a day with a plan

Give me a day, Oh, give me a day with a “thank you,” and “come again, ma’am.” 

 

Verse 4

Give me a straightforward morning, give me a day that is frank

And a day that unfolds in ideas that should profit

In little green bills in the bank

 

Chorus

Oh, give me a day, (Hey!) Oh, give me a day

Give me a day with a road map, give me a day with a plan

Give me a day, Oh, give me a day with a “thank you,” and “come again, ma’am.” 

 

Verse 5

Oh, give me a day without politics, give me a showing of hands

Who’s tired of talking about what isn’t working and “who’s destroying the land?”

 

Chorus

Oh, give me a day, (Hey!) Oh, give me a day

Give me a day with a road map, give me a day with a plan

Give me a day, Oh, give me a day with a “thank you,” and “come again, ma’am.” 

Designs On Me

If I Wear Blue

Written by Nina Ricci

 

Verse 1

I live saturated in spectrums of color

I’ve always had a pattern or odd combination

Of hues and of dyes: Yellow, magenta, and blue

And I wonder if it would have any effect on you

If I wear blue?

 

Verse 2

I’ve never been able to repeat perfection

I hate spinning circles in the same direction

But I learned to love what you like

You liked the silk scarf that I wore it 

So, I wore it over and over

And It wasn’t the design but the hue 

I wondered if I would have any effect on you

If I wear blue?

 

Chorus

Is it all a colorless dream

Like Dorothy before the twister came?

Could I open up Oz to you

Ooh, If I wear blue?

 

Verse 3

I’m buying a dress to wear on a date

And I’ve lived the beginning over and over:

You walk through the door 

See what I’m wearing

The one coloration you see, 

A cool azul covering the girl with brown eyes

Tell me would it matter to you

Are you attracted to the girl or the cast?

Under the light of the moon

And… would it help 

If I wear blue?

 

Chorus

Is it all a colorless dream

Like Dorothy before the twister came?

Could I open up Oz to you

Ooh, If I wear blue?

 

Verse 4

I wonder what a girl’s got to do to impress you?

Are bracelets and earrings enough to arrest you?

Or are you blind to them, too?

Like you are to the colors of the rainbow

As we are to the colors of the wind

Who do you tell your secrets to

That you’re colorblind?

And I could help 

Oooh, If I wear blue?

 

Chorus

Is it all a colorless dream

Like Dorothy before the twister came?

Could I open up Oz to you

Ooh, If I wear blue?

Southern Goodbyes

Written by Nina Ricci

 

Verse 1

Southern Goodbyes

Are said to somebody who’s leaving

To someone that you can’t let go of

Southern Goodbyes 

They all come through 

They all come to you someday

 

Verse 2

Southern Goodbyes,

last for as long as you linger 

at the end of the road

till you're gone out of sight

Calling to ask if you made it all right

Southern Goodbyes,

they all come true

they all come to you someday

 

Verse 

Southern Goodbyes

Stretch out from oldest to young ones

A portrait of kinship alive in the mirror

Making you feel like you shouldn’t leave here

 

Bridge:

Southern Goodbyes 

Here then and going tomorrow

They stand in the doorway, eyes full of sorrow

Putting on airs to be happy and blithe

Southern Goodbyes 

 

Verse 

Southern Goodbyes

Said at the bedside of weeping

Sending them off with warmness and love

On to the Maker Who welcomes them up

Southern goodbyes

they all come true

They all come to you

and we all must say them

as we end our lives

with

Sooooouuuthern Goodbyes!

By The Time I Get to Georgia

Nina Ricci

Hmmmmm

 

I’m trading Massachusetts Avenue for Smoky Mountains

Trading it for fields of dew and long highways and look-out views

 

There are things I saw and still want to do

People to miss and places, too

There’s much to miss to go, or stay

 

Verse 1

A Boston winter’s like Northern greetings

You’re not really sure if it’s staying or leaving

But it acts like it is and it’s possibly giving over to spring

And the birds are saying the same thing

 

Verse 2

The buildings are high as a mushroom cloud

It’s a beautiful sight but the city’s too loud

I need to think thoughts I’m sure are my own

It’s cramped and it’s lonely and I want to go home

 

Chorus

By the time I get down to Georgia

The sun will have burned up the leaves

And my skin will be gold as amber

That’s where I’m longing to be

 

Verse 3

Monteagle with your gates a-flowin’ 

Won’t you float me down the Chattahoochie and into the ocean

To stand on Tybee’s beach with a Bohemian grin

I’ve been bitten by a North-easterly wind

 

Chorus

By the time I get down to Georgia

The sun will have burned up the leaves

And my skin will be gold as amber

That’s where I’m longing to be

 

Bridge

I’m leaving soon and it’s hard to know

What’s waiting for me in the place I go

Lord, help me to believe and help me to breathe

For the altitude’s high and I’m riding on breeze

 

Verse 4

My supplement to fantasizing is having the feeling but not recognizing it

This time I’m hoping to live in the moment

Capitalizing on living it

And not what I get from it

 

Feelings pass like seasons go

And I’ve got a ticket for a 1-lane road

 

Chorus

By the time I get down to Georgia

The sun will have burned up the leaves

And my skin will be gold as amber

That’s where I’m longing, wishing, hoping to be

 

Hmmmmm

A1A

Nina Ricci

Verse 1

Riding on the A1A

I get a dream and I start to stray 

from beachside

I can hear on the wind

A sound that sounds like

 

Pre-Prechorus

Music

Music’s what brought me here

Called me hear

 

Pre-Chorus

I came to find the morning sun

Came to turn my eyes back on

It’s a hard world on a fragile mind

And I’m just tailgating time

 

Chorus

I’m sailing with a favorable wind

I’m a wave about to break

On the A1A

 

Verse 2

I left my home many months ago

I packed my car and I hit the road

On a mystical highway trip

It took me into it’s grip

Through a smoky mountain town

Where the moonshine light shines down

On wandering minstrels making

Music

Pre-Prechorus

Music

Music’s what brought me here

Called me hear

 

Pre-Chorus

I came to find the morning sun

Came to turn my eyes back on

It’s a hard world on a fragile mind

And I’m just tailgating time

 

Chorus

I’m sailing with a favorable wind

I’m a wave about to break

On the A1A

 

Bridge

The sea breeze keeps on taunting me

The cold North keeps me back from going home

To Tennessee

I’m almost a year on the road

But even a girl with a gypsy soul

Needs some A1A

 

Chorus

I’m sailing with a favorable wind

I’m a wave about to break

On the A1A

On the A1A

On the A1A

Cheap Labor for Hire

Nina Ricci

Verse 1

I’ve been working on the street for most of the week

To try to earn a dollar or two

Put the money in the bank, but there’s a hole in the tank

And now I’m watching it pour right through

 

Chorus

Where does it go? Well, I don’t know!

Well, I don’t know, but I — 

I sure haven’t seen it in a while

It just keeps blowing away

Blowing away

 

Verse 2

Well, I think— 

I should have stood my ground

When the lady kept— 

Dropping her offer down

But, my sign said,

“Cheap Labour for Hire”

And I didn’t—

Want to be called a liar

 

Solo Section

 

Chorus

 

Bridge

Income tax

Gotta pay for my car

Gotta pay the government for—

Whatever it is they do

Fica, mortgage, real estate, 

Insurance, and sales tax, too

I’ve had more lies than I can take

From well-planned schemes to subterfuge

These double-crossing enemies

Have gone and shot me in the blues

 

Verse 1

Mama never tells me lies, she only shoots me straight

But people out there telling lies, they do so to my face

People must not count their souls, and what they stand to lose

‘Cuz every time they reload, they shoot me in the blues

Designs On Me

Written by Nina Ricci

 

Verse 1

I’m laying on a towel on a snow-white sandy beach

The sun is sinking lower casting light all over me

And the man who’s been my truest friend is shadow puppeting

He’s casting shadows on my form, 

He’s making butterflies and leaves, 

He’s got designs on me

 

Verse 2

I must define what I believe that once you’re yolked you never leave

I’m open-eyed, I’m not deceived and I like what I have seen

We’ve traded looks that lock in place that light up in the other’s face

The kind that keep you twined for life, 

The ever-loving mystery,  

He’s got designs on me

Designs on me

 

Chorus

Why do lovers carve names in the trees?

Why do love birds return in the spring?

Why sometimes do we run past our dreams?

He’s got designs on me 

Designs on me

 

Verse 3

I watch the genius of his art, he listens to my chord

He fills balloons with colored paint and pins them on a board

 

He threw a dart and burst the first, invited me to join, 

And we came out color spurned 

And laughing all the while 

And I’ve started to believe 

He’s got designs on me

 Designs on me

 

Chorus

He’s got designs on me, designs on me

Numbers Don't Show

Written by Nina Ricci

 

Verse 1

We all began our music

Loving something that we heard

We studied on our instruments

And waited for the word

Whether what we sang was touching

Or we played the wrong notes

We thought we had the stuff

And so we played our first show

 

Verse 2

At first we thought we made it

But we had a lot to learn

So, we studied music business

Found out how the system flows

That as good as you may be

And however hard you work

All the talent won’t get nothing 

If the numbers don’t show

 

Chorus

Well, you can learn, learn

You can know, know, know

You can get pretty foxy at the game

But who’s in the room when the tickets are sold?

Nothing equals nothing if the numbers don’t show

 

Verse 3

Everybody’s in the business

Every critic’s got opinions

Everybody has connections 

But they never want to share ‘em. 

They all want to be the manager

But can’t supply “the know”

All the helpers don’t help nothin’ 

If the numbers don’t show

 

Verse 4

Well, they can say they’ll fix you up 

You could make a little dough

You could get a record deal

Playing down on music row

But whatever deal you get

And whatever you borrow

All the money don’t mean nothing 

If the numbers don’t show

 

Chorus

 

Verse 6

T Bone could be your co-write

You could intern with Atlantic

You could be the highest grossing

Staff writer in the land

But if you want to join the big leagues

And you haven’t got the draw

All the background doesn’t matter

If the numbers don’t show

 

Chorus
 

Verse 7

You could play outside the country

You could sell out every hall

You might see your name in headlines 

Even top the Billboard charts

Ya might be famous ‘round the world

But if your homeland doesn’t know

All the foreign fame don’t matter

And the numbers don’t show​

I Never Deserve Any Good Thing I Got

Written by Nina Ricci

 

Verse 1

I’ve had my share of good chances

And mostly made a mess of them all

Every moment that passes, passes in error

There’s a fly in the ointment of life

And it’s hard being human at all

It’s difficult just being alive 

It’s tough, even when it’s not 

And I Never Deserve Any Good Thing I Got

 

Verse 2

I got a blind hug from a stranger

Won the trust of a little child’s heart

But when it came down to mercy or Midas

I threw in with the golden lot 

My “self” became plated in gold

And my touch was as cold as a rock

And the evil root took hold

I Never Deserve Any Good Thing I Got

 

Verse 3

I remember every school party 

And every holiday with its spark 

A joy that unfolded right out of the dark 

From the pocket of my mother's heart 

And the years that I wore it on down

And the deeds to tear us apart

The words I used when we fought 

I Never Deserve Any Good Thing I Got

No, I Never Deserve Any Good Thing I Got

Verse 4

Somebody said I was someone’s somebody

And I guess I might have known it was true

From the twinkle and shine of innocent love

When I stole all the light that it drew

It crunched like leaves underfoot

And it pained me to look in its face

In love, I’m a crack shot

And I Never Deserve Any Good Thing I Got

 

Verse 5

People go to hell with good intentions

Some are honest and lose all they work for

God in His grace put up His Son

On a cross for the guilt of my past 

And I have the nerve to repeat my sins;

And stone-face the Judge when I’m caught;

Hold out before I repent

I Never Deserve Any Good Thing I Got

Constant Sunshine

Nina Ricci

Fair beach weather, get together

Feast your eyes and join together

 

When you see the sun arising in the morning time

You know the waves will meet the skyline

 

What’s the time man?

It’s a fine time

Ooh I dig that constant sunshine

 

Birds like treetops

Hillbilly’s-mountaintops

We dig surfboards, waves, and flipflops

Volleyball boardwalk summersaults, sunblock

In the summer we are on top!

 

What’s the time man?

It’s a fine time

Ooh I dig that constant sunshine

 

Ooh Will it go?

Ooh Will it stay?

Ooh Will we play?

 

See the sand kids

Taste the salt kiss

Sink your feet inside the sand shifts

 

Greet the seashells

They’ll tell ocean tales-

Whispering secrets of the tide swells

 

Ooh Will it go?

Ooh Will it stay?

Ooh Will we play?

(Ooh in the shade)***?

 

Then the morning will come and will brighten our face and we’ll never remember it ever went away!

 

What’s the time man?

It’s a fine time

Ooh I dig that constant sunshine

 

What’s the time man?

It’s a fine time

Ooh I dig that constant sunshine

If They Only Knew

Nina Ricci

Verse 1

I’ve been walking through the same emptiness

Everyday since I was eight

My heart is changed and my trust is maimed 

And I push all people away

 

Chorus

If they only knew me

They’d be so proud of me

And I’d rise above me

If they only knew

If they only knew

 

Verse 2

People, they just point and stare

I’m included, yet, diminished and deluded 

Till I just want to disappear

I need a way out of here

 

Chorus

If they only knew me

They’d be so proud of me

And I’d rise above me

If they only knew me

If they only knew

 

Verse 3

People talk about prison cells

They have never seen

But I know the bars of loneliness

I know what confinement means:

Isolation, imprisoning

And I’d rise above me

All the crown jewels

Margaret said she’d show me all the crown jewels

An eyeglass loupe will magnify the light

And I can’t wait till I get the glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

Glitter in my eyes

 

Verse 1

Margaret’s got a leather-covered snake skin trunk

She told me to appraise and throw away the junk

It’s hard to see the diamonds, they’re all mixed in

With the custom costume brooches and the riff-raff shims

I saw a gin and a genie in the facets of a gem

And I fall under their enchantment

I don’t need to steal ‘cuz I eat with my eyes

They’re filled to the brim with little flicker lights

 

Chorus

 

Verse 3

A Polish ring, a Polish ring

It’s porcelain white, just a little cracked thing

It don’t have a glitter, no it don’t have a sparkle

But I’ve got a fancy for it and I dream it in the dark, Oh

Got a fancy for it and I wear it in my dreams
Got a fancy for it and I dream it in the dark

 

Chorus

All the crown jewels

All the crown jewels

Margaret said she’d show me all the crown jewels

An eyeglass loupe will magnify the light

That's What Makes the World Go 'Round

Nina Ricci

Verse 1

My will to live the life I have

Has been a slow hand running down

 

Soundlessly watching my days slip by

Daily becoming less young

 

Hoping that change is coming

Listenin’ for a far off train

It’s beating the air and humming

The whistle blows and your shoes step out

 

My heart beats like a hammer pounds

My heart beats like a hammer pounds

 

CHORUS

Seeing you, Darling

And hearing your sound,

That’s what makes the world go ‘round

 

Verse 2

It’s no use being alone in life

To have conversations with your own mind

 

I’ve just discovered that it’s all true you

You need me and that I need you

 

You put your arm around me

And your face to mine

I’m feeling my emotions, now

Sometimes I feel like fading

My colors are coming out

 

My heart beats like a hammer pounds

My heart beats like a hammer pounds

 

CHORUS

 

BRIDGE

Like a music box and the song it plays

I’m gone

I wind up the turner and start to chime

As the rolling barrel with the brass note pines

Away

You’re the music man you give me a start

You move the air that’s blows on my heart  

 

And the rhythm keeps me going

I’m going somewhere now

 

My heart beats like a hammer pounds

My heart beats like a hammer pounds

 

CHORUS
