I’m Hopus Hand I’m Benny the Jew The boy in the bubble Little Charlie Trouble I’m a fish cutter and a butcher boy I’m a troubadour with a pompadour and I could be, your man I could be, your man I could be, your man You can have me yes you can what do you wanna know I’ma doctor of love and a singer of song I’m an agitator \and a revelator I have magic hands and a gentle touch I can toss a salad my credentials are valid and I could be, your man I could be, your man I could be, your man You can have me yes you can what do you wanna know I’m no Schwarzennegger with a calculator no relationship terminator I’m a rollinng pin and a mixing bowl I’m like Darth Vader with a Carburetor and I could be, your man I could be, your man I could be, your man You can have me yes you can what do you wanna know

Love conquers all, It’s hard and its fast been around a long time seen it come to pass\ Seen it come to pass Seen it come to pass Love will kick your ass All of the greatest Men about town Every single one’s had His walls kicked down Seen it come to pass Seen it come to pass Love will kick your ass Love is heavy magic And it can make you crazy A sane guy will loses his mind When he loses his baby And then he does things Even he can’t believe Love will kick your ass Take it from me There is no reason to stop Following your heart Life would not be life If it didn’t smart Its no easy chase And its no easy find But it’s the greatest thing And it will blow your mind It will blow your mind and It will kick your ass It will kick your ass

Pamela, Pamela I remember you in the basement Pamela, Pamela I remember you in the basement You had your hair cut like Bettie Page And the rest was a pretty nice arrangement It didn’t take much To get you down the stairs It didn’t take much To get you down the stairs But the whole thing came off Once we got down there That was a long time ago, But it seems like yesterday That was a long time ago, But it seems like yesterday I wonder where you are And if you still love the same way Was it the Devil That put a spell on you Was it the Devil That put a spell on you Or was it just these magic hands That knew exactly what to do

Crinkle lines look better than old tattoos Souvenirs of smiling eyes Hunched over blues earned and paid for marked by a thousand miles A line by your lips for every flawed reward For every hard night of crying Battles lost or drawn or won Hearts battered or stolen or quartered Fat old man with no master plan Can’t think of something to say Used to have charm I could do a lot of harm Now I’m just in the way All the droopy droopy clowns with the saggy baggy faces And the tear drop stain in your skin the belly with the jelly and the turtle speed races Look at the body your in when I was twenty loved the life in the old eyes All he droopy droopy fall downs The old skin was wise now I am too old to see Past the droopy droopy fall downs Who’s that in the mirror , old man face looks Used to love all the old faces, I stopped looking in the mirror a long time ago Man I’d like to replace this All the droopy droopy fall downs, where’s the beauty in that World wise edge of town skin, 
now its yours and not some cool old guy’s HOLY COW your hiiiiiiiiiiiiim

about

English,French, Spanish Blues,Roots World Music

"...has his ear to the rest of the world's blues roots, covering African and Spanish numbers as well, showcases for his strong guitar playing. In his understated way, he's a master at these foreign styles as much as he is the North American versions. Hearing his deconstruction of See That My Grave Is Kept Clean is worth the price alone. He's someone who really knows how to breathe fresh life into a too-often staid genre"
Bob Mersereau-The Top 100 Canadian Singles
