Make You Breakfast – lyrics by Robert Braathe


Make You Breakfast © 2017 Lyrics by Robert Braathe

If you’re looking for a man let it be no question
There’s a man in your world who has a suggestion
If I invite you over for dinner and movie
You might discover that I’m a sinner and groovy

Let’s see how we get along
Don’t matter where you belong
I’ve got an idea for me and you
If I sing a witty song
You’ll see I’m right not wrong
It may take me a night or two

It may be a little sexist
But I want to make you breakfast

I kind of get the feeling
With all the wheel and dealing
That you can’t find a way to more good times

I might be a little skeptic
If I shared my antiseptic
Listerine in between Coronas and limes

Let’s see how we get along
Don’t matter where you belong
I’ve got an idea for me and you
If I sing a witty song
You’ll see I’m right not wrong
It may take me a night or two

It may be a little sexist
But I want to make you breakfast

Let’s see how we get along
Don’t matter where you belong
I’ve got an idea for me and you
If I sing a witty song
You’ll see I’m right not wrong
It may take me a night or two

It may be a little sexist
But I want to make you breakfast
Bacon and toast from Texas
I want to make you breakfast
After a night of flexes
I want to make you breakfast

Little ‘Minders of You by Fresh Oil and Chips

© 2017 Fresh Oil and Chips – lyrics by Robert Braathe and Brian Huff; music, production and vocals by Brian Huff

I keep a shirt from the day that you tanned
It’s a little stained but it sure takes me back
I see a sign on the 9 and it makes it more real
The way you used to play and the way that you feel

I can’t decide if I should keep that old leather seat
It brings me right back to the time where I’d rub your little feet

Chorus:
They tell me to throw it all away
But it’s my call whether to go or whether to stay
I should be going out to sing and to play
But I keep the blinders
Cuz they’re little ‘minders of you

The deck of cards with Henry Clay
They make an appearance when I want to play
The square piece of carpet that’s purple and gray
That we kneeled on to pray day after day
The silver dollar with Susan B from 1988
Reminded me of the time that you ran real late

Chorus
They tell me to throw it all away
But it’s my call whether to go or whether to stay
I should be going out to sing and to play
But I keep the blinders
Cuz they’re little ‘minders of you

Bridge
Hey little baby where you going, where you going today?
What little minder will you leave
Will you go or will you stay?

Chorus
They tell me to throw it all away
But it’s my call whether to go or whether to stay
I should be going out to sing and to play
But I keep the blinders
Cuz they’re little ‘minders

Yeah I keep the blinders
Cuz their little ‘minders of you

Four Letter Ladies

© Lyrics written Feb 2017 by Robert Braathe

Amie and Cara know how to believe ya
Sara and Tina know how to deceive ya
Lucy and Gina know how to receive ya
Alie and Lena know how to achieve ya

If your name is Alex or Beka it’s be so sweet to meet ya
You’d really impress my Aunts Judy and Reba
Have a drink or two with Uncle Bob and Aunt Rita
Four letter ladies are fine, I believe-a

If you need a date
Call up a Kate
Four letter ladies are the finest to see you

Didi and Mary are good at seducing
Cori and Jeri are good at producing
Suzy and Xena excel at the saving
Kira and Dena excel at the waving

If your name is Alex or Beka it’s be so sweet to meet ya
You’d really impress my Aunts Judy and Reba
Have a drink or two with Uncle Bob and Aunt Rita
Four letter ladies are fine, I believ-a

Call her on the phone
If her name is Joan
Four letter ladies are the finest to speak to

You think you are a big deal with your four letter words
I’d rather share a big mean with my four letter girls

If your name is Alex or Beka it’s be so sweet to meet ya
You’d really impress my Aunts Judy and Reba
Have a drink or two with Uncle Bob and Aunt Rita
Four letter ladies are fine, I believ-a

If you are looking for a sage
Stick around with Page
Four letter ladies are the wisest to be with

You’ll avoid a dilemma
If you find yourself an Emma
Four letter ladies are so fine, believe-a

Gotta Get More No’s

lyrics written February 2017 by Robert Braathe

Getting rejected
Isn’t like being neglected
At least you get the answers
Instead of being around all the dancers

I gotta get more no’s
I gotta wear some new clothes
I gotta ask someone who knows
How to turn down a propose

I gotta be in the stream
Of a sigh or a scream
If I want to find a repose
I gotta get more no’s

It’s Getting perfected
The ways to be rejected
I may not like no for an answer
But I’ll find my tiny dancer

I gotta get more no’s
I gotta wear some new clothes
I gotta ask someone who knows
How to turn down a propose

I gotta be in the stream
Of a sigh or a scream
If I want to find a repose
I gotta get more no’s

Dusty was the American Dream
Busty once made me mumble and scream
Paper comes in a bundle or ream
Write it down and you’ll see what I mean

I gotta get more no’s
I gotta get more no’s
I gotta get more no’s
I gotta get more no’s

I gotta wear some new clothes
I gotta ask someone who knows
I gotta get more no’s
I gotta get more no’s

How Long Together Should Be by Fresh Oil and Chips featuring LW

lyrics written by Robert Braathe and Libby Weber, music and vocals by Libby Weber

Together means we watch the weather change from season to season
Love blooms and grows for reason after reason
If I only had to count to 100 It would be easy to see
This is how long together should be

I met you on a Tuesday down at the whiskey and stout
I bet a thousand Tuesdays have passed since the day we went out
If there were just a hundred everyone could see
This is how long together should be

I might have made a fool out of your sister in 80
I bite more than I can chew and the feelings weigh on me
You know me more each decade and it’s clear as the sea
This is how long together should be

This is how long together should be
This is how long the weather will be
Making us so youthful and free

The times and the tears have made me look weird
Short hair, long hair, tattoos they’ve made you look endearing

I see it in your eyes and they reveal to me
This is how long together should be

This is how long together should be
This is how long together should be

Married Men and Bartenders by Robert Braathe

lyrics written February 2017 by Robert Braathe

You like your men married
You like your bartenders
These thoughts I carried
With your return to senders
With feelings out of place
And dealings out of deserts
You could be feeling disgrace
But your wheeling measures

I gotta get over the use
For putting up with abuse
Time to find a new muse

Ive got no use for drama
You’ve got booze and berries
It’s a big day mama
You’ll be drinking from dairies
You like those bald and bellied
With a ring that’s been given
I think I’ve called your jellied
World into question

I gotta get over the use
For putting up with abuse
Time to find a new muse

You like your men married
You like your bartenders
If your interest had varied
Your life with less suspenders

You like your men married
You like your bartenders

You like your men married
You like your bartenders

Little Moon by Fresh Oil and Chips

lyrics by Robert Braathe – music and vocals by Brian Huff

Can a ray of sunshine
Bring around the rain
Can a can of moonshine
Heal a bit of pain
Can a little white line
Make us go insane

See you more tomorrow
See a little moon

Pan a man at highlights
See him exclaim
Score more at halftime
His claim to fame
Put him in the spotlight
If he plays a little game

See you more tomorrow
See a little moon

Feel a little sorrow
See you next June

Throw an interception
Watch the crowd swoon
Might be a perception
Like Sting was in Dune
Your son, his conception
Will come from the tune

See you more tomorrow
See a little moon

Feel a little sorrow
See you next June
