Three original lyrics follow. 1st is a bit long, but is good for getting an audience with you, even sharing the chorus.


GOOD COMPANY
(good bouncey beat)

My friend Ben never was rich;
never had clout in society;
known as a dreamer, with a wanderer's itch,
but he has the gift to be
GOOD COMPANY !

Susie's a child from the poor side of town;
no put-on ways, born in poverty,
but she has a good heart; she's the first one around
to offer you
GOOD COMPANY !

Chorus
GOOD COMPANY ! GOOD COMPANY !
When you're down and out, who will help you out ?
Folks who know how to be-ee-e
GOOD COMPANY !

Jerry's Dad is a millionaire !
Plenty of money for all to see !
But Jerry's a guy who doesn't care,
he'd rather be known as
GOOD COMPANY !

Famous folks have plenty of fans;
anywhere they are,is the place to be !
What they like best are the helping hands;
and what they need most is
GOOD COMPANY !

Chorus
GOOD COMPANY ! GOOD COMPANY !
When you're down and out, who will help you out ?
Folks who know how to be-ee-e
GOOD COMPANY !

On all the roads you can take in this world,
through treasures and troubles you'll come to see,
a battered old buddy is really a pearl !
There's no better gift than
GOOD COMPANY !

When Jesus walked on the desert sand,
and went to the Mount for serenity,
He turned to His Father, and the faithful band,
who offered Him
GOOD COMPANY !

Chorus
GOOD COMPANY ! GOOD COMPANY !
When you're down and out, who will help you out ?
Folks who know how to bee-ee-e
GOOD CONPANY !

Now today, when we're lonely and tired,
the way He sometimes used to be,
we all need friends who are inspired
by the Heavenly Gift of
GOOD COMPANY !

GOOD COMPANY ! GOOD COMPANY !
When you're down and out,who will help you out ?
Folks who know how to be-ee-e
GOOD COMPANY !

______________________________________________________________
This might encourage some teen boys to try a musical career.

TEEN KNIGHT

Jimmy doesn't own a suit of armor.
He doesn't ride around on a big white horse.
But he's a natural-born lady-charmer,
and he does it all with his voice !

Jimmy never ever slew a dragon,
but he will protect the lady-fair.
He's quiet, and not much given to braggin',
but when he's needed, he's always there !

Chorus
He has average hair, and searching eyes.
He doesn't stand out in a crowd.
He's a little bit shy, and a little bit wise,
but he's never pushy and loud.

Jimmy loves his Wal-Mart guitar.
He sings his songs from his heart.
He's a teen-aged Knight, someday Star
and he's already playin' the part !

Rowdy guys laugh; they don't understand
the country he travels in mind.
They call him an odd-ball,one-man-band,
but the girls are standin' in line !

Chorus
He just sings his songs, and smiles at the girls.
He thinks they're all just fine !
He likes their dimples, and giggles, and curls !
He's a real teen Knight by design !
He's a Teen-Knight-one-of-a-kind !

ROCKABYE DREAMS
(A song to cheer up blue days)

When a cold rain is falling, and the skies are all grey;
when a vision is calling, but it seems far-away;
when there's only small change in your jeans;
sing out your Rockabye Dreams !

If it seems like your promise is over the hill;
if the hopes that are fondest are spinning their wheels;
when it's only the distance that gleams,
sing out your Rockabye Dreams !

Chorus
When you sing to your soul,
you can soothe its distress,
and warm up the cold,
with a song's tenderness.

If you're feeling blue, and it seems you're alone,
there's Someone who loves you, and you don't need a phone.
He lives in your heart like a King,
singing your Rockabye Dreams.

If your day has been dreary, and the night stretches long,
your heart may be weary, and need a soul song.
To remember what Life really means,
sing out your Rockabye Dreams !

Chorus
Rockabye Dreams,
are Visions that flow,
from Heavenly streams,
for the healing of soul.
