Songs by Roy Williams

(1) TOYS

TOYS
(©2017, Roy Williams; Karen Gregory)

When I was a kid I had a ball
I had more stuff than I could use from the time I could crawl
I'd see the newest Toys on TV and boy I wanted them all

Teddy bears checker boards puzzles and dice
Multi-coloured cubes spinning wheels flying kites
If it whistled beeped or buzzed or even better came with lights

CHORUS
Toys come in every shape and size Toys what I've come to realize
If you're young if you're old if you're big if you're small it doesn't matter at all
Everybody loves Toys

When I was a teen I loved to play
I could hit and run and throw and catch and kick every day
If I woke up and it was raining Plan B was video games

Got a job bought a car I could call mine
Learned to play guitar practiced hard every night
All my buddies dug our band but even better girls liked us

CHORUS
Toys come in every shape and size Toys what I've come to realize
If you're young if you're old if you're big if you're small it doesn't matter at all
Everybody loves Toys Toys Toys Toys Toys (make some noise!)

We all need to play I mean everyone
I think it's safe to say there's no such thing as too much fun

CHORUS

Now I'm all grown up I know what I need
I want more fun fly or ride float or ski
It might cost more but it's worth it to me

CHORUS

Toys provide an education Toys an endless fascination
If they ever fall apart you gotta fix or replace them

CHORUS

Everybody loves Toys
Everybody loves Toys Toys Toys
Everybody loves Toys
Toys!

(3) HOLD ME IN LINE

Hold Me in Line
A tribute to Lowell George / Little Feat
(©2014, Roy Williams)

Rock and roll doctor brown puppy eyes
Cartoon charisma with a guitar and a slide
A fabulous infect-you-us feel the most-est
Getcha romance dancin from coast to coast-est
Can you hear him singin

I got to Hold Me in Line gotta Hold Me in Line
I’ve used up nearly nine lives
I got to Hold Me in Line gotta Hold Me in Line
I’ll be in the pink in no time

Roll ‘um easy roll right through the night
On cocaine and Commodore cocktails with a lime
Three sheets to the Santa Ana winds off L.A.
Where Neon tomatoes and Hollywood play
Can you hear him singin

I got to Hold Me in Line gotta Hold Me in Line
I’ve used up nearly nine lives
I got to Hold Me in Line gotta Hold Me in Line
I’ll be in the pink in no time

I’m willin to bet where his little feat led him
When he was outta sight he’d be outta his mind
So high on the music oh the music
And a pocket rocket’s sweet socket pie
Listen

I got to hold me in sway I love metaphor play
I’m so mixed up in a way

I got to Hold Me in Line gotta Hold Me in Line
One look at you a man wouldn’t think twice
I got to make you mine honey oh you’re lookin so fine
I’ll be in the pink in no time

You are my reason you are my rhyme
Can’t seem to hold - I said hold hold - hold hold hold
Hold Me in Line

[Lyrics]
