Benji, would love to play guitar, He don’t have a penny in his jar Maybe, he’d move to Montreal Become – A – Superstar… He’s got a, patch on his left eye, From sleeping on the bench, in the parks at night Surprisingly, he’s made it all this far He won’t stop, without a fight He’s howling, at the moon He don’t care who is listening, He’s howling, at the moon, Maybe, somebody might answer him Brown paper bag, Filled with what he owns He’s never been the type to have a home, Keeps it close, a notepad in his jacket Songs hidden, nobody believes in Shadow on the wall, of every street He’s always had to beg for something to eat It’s nothing new to him, the people are judging It’s clear, they cannot see He’s howling, at the moon He don’t care who is listening, He’s howling, at the moon, Maybe, somebody might answer him “Oooh- Ohhh- Ouhhh-Ouhhh” X2 Benji – You don’t know what’s coming Imagine – Better just keep dreaming Benji – You don’t know what’s coming Imagine- Better just keep dreaming !!! ( HEY!) He’s howling, at the moon He don’t care who is listening, He’s howling! – “Ouhh- Ouhh - Ouuuuhhh – He’s howling! Ouuu-ouhhh – Ouuuuhhh- He’s howling! He’s howling at the moon, Maybe somebody might answer him Benji, would love to play guitar He don’t have a penny in his jar Maybe, he’d move to Montreal Become – A – Supertar…

Grab a paddle, bring the Kayak Feel like going down to the river Think I’ve got a few friends I could call If you have a few you’d like to call Forget the sunscreen let’s go bathing in the raw No such thing as SPF-45 It’s marketing for your eyes Ouh Hey! to the summertime Kids are playing all through the night Wheels turning, the music is turned up way to high In the summertime Ouh! Hey! Watermelon, M&M’s – That’s all we packed inside our lunch All my friends they sure like to talk It’s a perfect day for a picnic in the park Sure could use just a little more free time Won’t find it, watching the morning news, It’s only there to fool you Ouh Hey! to the summertime Kids are playing all through the night Wheels spinning, the music is turned up way to high In the summertime Ouh Hey! “”Forget the words written on the wall Telling you, you’re too small I see glitter, falling from the sky Helium balloons, passing by In the summertime”” (Chorus) X2

I’m bored at home, sitting alone Figure, I’d try to write you a song I’m sure you’ve heard, most of these lines – I’ll try not to copy, too many rhythms “Doo-Doo-do-do-do-do Doo-Doo-Dooo-do-do” I know these three chords, I can play them pretty well You’ve got the beat to play the spoons Will write a couple hits and make it real big Tour around, get paid for our gigs. “Doo-Doo-do-do-do-do Doo-Doo-Dooo-do-do” I’ll pick you up, a quarter-after-eight, Pack up my car, will head on straight To the nearest station, to the nearest bar Order me a gin, we’re not to far “Doo-Doo-do-do-do-do Doo-Doo-Dooo-do-do” I like to dream, while I’m asleep I also do, when I’m awake Thinking of you, it's just like a dance We’re lucky enough, don't need a good chance “Doo-Doo-do-do-do-do Doo-Doo-Dooo-do-do” Will drive down to the shore, of the nearest coast Gamble two rings from the market folks, “GET OUT OF BED!” – I can hear my mother yell I’ve talked to soon, guess time will tell Boy, you must be tired of hearing me sing, Of such idealistic and foolish things Life is a mystery, not to wonder Or you’ll wind up stuck, with your head in the gutter “Doo-Doo-do-do-do-do Doo-Doo-Dooo-do-do” “Doo-Doo-do-do-do-do Doo-Doo-Dooo-do-do” See, I’m bored at home, sitting alone Figure, I’d write you a song I’m sure you’ve heard, most of these lines – I tried not to copy, too many rhythms

Got a book, and a pen Write things down as I see them See a bird, in the sky Watch the clouds, passing by Got a feeling, in my knees A storm is coming through town Hear the wind, through the leaves I know, it won’t be long The rain will trickle down The rain will come on down The rain will come on down Wash away, all of me Give it all, Give it all To you See a spider, in its web, Drawing a masterpiece What’s to come, is unknown Just hoping for something to eat He looks to the stars, wishes upon, Curiosity There’s more to what he sees, He knows it won’t be long The rain will trickle down The rain will come on down The rain will come on down Wash away, all of this Give it all, Give it all To you Stoke the fire, you keep inside The flames do burn low Feed it more, give it less See how it will go You take from me, I take from you A cycle that will not flow I know it won’t be long The rain will trickle down The rain will come on down The rain will come on down Wash away, all of this Give it all, Give it all To you Give it all, Give it all To you
