Track Name: The Better Part
The Better Part
(Kern/Ratts)

You’re one in a million
A raft in an ocean
A small glimpse of heaven
In a world of weeds

A full moon at midnight
A lone ray of sunlight
A soft silver lining
On the gray edge of me

So I find you wandering ‘round my head
Looking down on where we could be instead
Though I honor the lives that we left for dead
I’m grateful…

And I know
You’re everywhere that I go
The sunlight through my window
The moonlight on my sea
And today
You’re the wind behind me
My open desert highway
The better part of me

You’re hope in a dark place
The end of the long maze
In a life full of Mondays
You’re Friday evening

If you find me wandering ‘round your mind
Dodging echos of things that you left behind
For the promise of all that we still might find
I’m grateful…

And I know
You’re everywhere that I go
My Venus de Milo
My Aphrodite
And today
You’re my life’s Salome
My open desert highway
The better part of me
Track Name: Marisa
Marisa
(Ratts/Kern)

i'm in love with marisa
or maybe its the idea
of being in love with marisa
either way
i'm in love with marisa tomei

another long day
finally got home
grabbed a beer and turned on the tv
the show is alright
nothing special
until i see marisa smiling at me

i'm in love with marisa...

met a nice girl
at a party
she said she'd go to the movies with me
i know i shouldn't
but i can't help it
the new tomei film's what we're gonna see

'cause i'm in love with marisa...

and though this may sound lame
i know she feels the same
i don't know how i know
if we never meet
still she makes me complete
every time i turn on her show

'cause i'm in love with marisa
or maybe its the idea
of being in love with marisa
either way
i'm in love with marisa tomei
Track Name: Lagavulin for Christmas
Lagavulin for Christmas
(Kern/Ratts)

when i was a little boy
i used to dream of christmas toys
as i grew up, more naive
i'd dream of love and world peace

but now i've gotten it all together
santa, just forget the sweater
and bring me what will make it all
better this year

lagavulin for christmas
twelve days of islay peat
lagavulin for christmas
a dram beneath the tree
me and lagavulin this year
beneath the mistletoe
lagavulin fot christmas
gives me that yuletide glow

you ever stop to wonder why
he stays so warm on christmas night
did you ever want to know
what it is that makes a reindeer glow

well whats making you so red and jolly
flying from boston to bali
leave some of that
beneath the holly this year

now again i can believe
in a night of hope
called christmas eve
a miracle in the morning
the perfect malt lagavulin

if you're thinking i'm merry
there's a reason
it's my spirit of the season
here's a toast
to all thats pleasing you this year

lagavulin for christmas
twelve days of islay peat
lagavulin for christmas
a dram beneath the tree
me and lagavulin this year
beneath the mistletoe
lagavulin for christmas
gives me that yuletide glow
Track Name: The Sippy Cup Song
The Sippy Cup Song
(Ratts/Kern)

its a sippy sippy cup
you're drinking up
drink it all day long
its a sippy sippy cup
you're drinking up
drink until it's gone

cause you know your mom will
fill it right back up
fill it right back up
when you need a great big drink
your mom is right there at the sink
with more
watch her pour

its a sippy sippy cup
youre drinking up
drink it all day long
its a sippy sippy cup
youre drinking up
drink until its gone

cause you know your dad will
always help you out
all you have to do is shout
when you've got a great big thirst
you know your dad is always first
with more
watch him pour

you can turn it upside down
you can roll it on the floor
you can lose it in the couch
and you can throw it out the door
you've really got to love it
for its clever plastic top
and mom and dad are happy
'cause it never spills a drop

its a sippy sippy cup
you're drinking up
drink it all day long
its a sippy sippy cup
youre drinking up
drink until it's gone
