Song list and lyrics

    Work So Hard

    Words and Music © Roger Hammer


    Gimme twenty dollars for another day
    So that I can chase these blues away
    Every little penny got to make it pay

           Work so hard
           Work so hard

    Give me something now that’s gonna last a while
    Something that’ll get me high and make me smile
    Give me everything and walk another mile


                   You just stand in line
                   So why the hell you cryin?
                   You make your own life so fine
                   By cutting in to mine

    Every day I get up and get out of bed
    Try to make a dollar, keep the family fed
    If I get no money I’ll be better dead

    Work so hard
           Work so hard

    Do you know what happened just a while ago?
    Someone said, “now buddy, give me all your dough.”
    He took all I had and then I watched him go

           Work so hard
           Work so hard




    Find A Place

    Words and Music © Roger Hammer


    Walkin down the road
    I can’t take it
    Just can’t find nowhere to go

    Waitin out the night
    Wish I could fake it
    But this really can’t go on no more

           Got to
           Find a place right away
           Got to
           Find a living space where I can stay

    Trouble piled deep
    All around me
    Trouble back of every door

    Nothin I can see
    Could help convince me
    That there ain’t some better way to go

    Got to find a place
    Where I can hang out
    When I get to felling low

    Let me come on in
    And let me thaw out
    It can get so awful cold outdoors

           Got to
           Find a place right away
           Got to
           Find a living space where I can stay

    Livin on the road
    Ain’t no picnic
    Even on a sunny day

    Always on the go
    Still I’m gonna give it
    Everything I can along the way

           Got to
           Got to




    Hold On

    Words and Music © Roger Hammer


    Hold on to what you see
    Ain’t no good believing in what may never be
    Look out for livin, look out today
    And don’t you give it, don’t give it all away

           Hold on
           Hold on
           Hold on

    Hold on to things you need
    You don’t like money?  How you gonna eat?
    Reach out to take it, better take it fast
    One chance is comin, better make it last

           Hold on
           Hold on
           Hold on

    Hold on, and hold on tight
    Hold on your baby all through the night
    Reach out and make it, reach out today
    And don’t just give it, just give it all away

    Hold on
           Hold on
           Hold on

    Dance Away The World

    Words and Music © Roger Hammer


    I’m gonna dance away the world tonight
           dance away the world tonight
    Wanna dance with all I got
    While the music’s really hot
    Gonna dance until it feels alright
           dance until it feels alright

    I’m gonna shake my tambourine tonight
           shake my tambourine tonight
    Help me bring the spirits out
    Everybody jump and shout
    Gonna shake up everything in sight
           shake up everything in sight

    Dance away the world tonight
           Dance away the world tonight
           If you think it doesn’t matter
           There’s a way to feel better
           When you jump around you can’t be down
           When you jump around you can’t be down

    I’m gonna dance away the world tonight
           dance away the world tonight
    Wanna dance with all I got
    While the music’s really hot
    Gonna dance until it feels alright
           dance until it feels alright

           Dance away the world tonight
           Dance away the world tonight
           Dancin with my girl tonight
           Gonna dance away the world alright




    Lover and Friend

    Words and Music © Roger Hammer


    O my lover and my only friend
    So good to talk to you again
    It’s not so long since we’ve become alone
    I still remember when we called it home

           O the things that keep us
           That keep us far apart

           O the things that keep us
           That keep us far apart

           As our times go on
           As our times go on
           Times go on

    O my lover and my lover’s friend
    I know your’re there and I can’t pretend
    Love is staying and it’s moving on
    A love unmoving is a love undone

           O the days we’re no together
           Are not together days

           O the days we’re no together
           Are not together days

           As our times go on
           As our times go on
           Times go on

    O my lover, how I need a friend
    Unlike love, friendship never ends
    Love may mean freedom, as I’ve been shown
    Don’t make me be that free though, on my own




    Can’t You Feel It?

    Words and Music © Roger Hammer


    Early in the morning try to clear my head
    From waiting long into the night
    For you to come, for you to come my way

    Waiting for an answer, something that you said
    To make me think I’m really alright
    Now I feel like I have to say

           Can’t you feel it?
           Can’t you feel it?
           Can’t you feel it?

           Can’t you feel it?
           Can’t you feel it?
           Can’t you feel it?

    Comin down the wire, comin through the air
    It’s the sound that I sing
    Callin out now, reaching out somehow

    Getting down and getting out to everywhere
    There’s no containing this thing
    Her it comes, here it comes right now

           Can’t you feel it?
           Can’t you feel it?
           Can’t you feel it?

           Can’t you feel it?
           Can’t you feel it?
           Can’t you feel it?




    Throw It Away

    Words and Music © Roger Hammer

           Disposable time
           Disposable lover
           Disposable life

    Find it
    Get it
    Use it
    Throw it away

    Find it
    Get it
    Forget about it
    Just throw it away

           Throwaway favors
           Throwaway smiles
           Throwaway papers
           Throwaway lives

    Find it
    Get it
    Use it
    Throw it away

    Find it
    Get it
    Forget about it
    Just throw it away




    Planet Of A Cold Sun

    Words and Music © Roger Hammer


    We are life of the future
    We are the hope of the past
    Riding in a new wave of culture
    Made of time bombs ticking fast
    Made of time bombs ticking fast

           Here we are, every one
           Among the stars
           On a planet of a cold, cold sun

    Some people live for tomorrow
    Some only think of today
    No one lives unless they borrow
    From the earth they can not repay
    From the earth they can not repay

    Here we are, every one
           Among the stars
           On a planet of a cold, cold sun

                   Try to get away
                   (hey, hey, hey)
                   Where else do we have to go?
                   Got to find a way
                   To find some more space

           Here below, where we are
           Among the stars
           On a planet of a cold, cold sun



    To Be Born - And Live

    Words and Music © Roger Hammer


    Coning in with crying
    You fear you’re gonna die
    Welcome to our bigger world
    We won’t tell no lie

    Time is gonna find you
    There’s every reason why
    Now all of us will be around
    To see you’re getting by

           You’re born
           Born to live
           Son of the sky
           Living to try

    Get ready for some changes
    Get ready for the fight
    No trouble if you’re growing strong
    No worry if you’re right

    Standing at the station
    Or walking through the night
    We’ve got to all be closer now
    The time is getting tight

           You’re born
           Born to live
           Son of the sky
           Living to try

    See those guns – they’re coming
    Politics and lead
    If they’re not pointed at your heart
    They’re aiming for your head

    Keep yourself together
    Keep the people fed
    Keep it all above the line
    Or you may be living dead
