Lyrics - Up and Out
Up and Out
© Eric Kampman and Thea Kelley
Up and out now, they said, up and out
so we up and went now we’re up and gone
like a dandelion seed that drifts way up high like a prayer wheel that spins its gifts to the sky
Where I came from I was past my prime, into this and that, out of time
on the road one fine day turned a corner, flew away so they tell me – I can’t say – I was gone

Lyrics - St. Patrick and the Snakes
St. Patrick and the Snakes
© Thea Kelley
for goodness sakes, Ireland has no snakes because St. Patrick chased them into the lakes the serpent offered an apple but St. Paddy raised the stakes the saint he won and now it’s done let’s give the snakes a wake
go snakes, slithering hither and yon go snakes, traveling, traveling on go snakes, going and going and gone Saint Patrick threw you in, and I hope you learned to swim
Ireland now need never bow to the king snake, nor tell no tales of slithering scales that keep us all awake the adder’s been subtracted and the garter’s on the leg and the only dreaded cottonmouth is filling a cup at the keg
Brenda’s got a boa but it’s just a feathered fling Una’s Ourobouros is a glossy golden ring Tara’s got a tattoo of a flying snake so fine and Tim’s got one in his trousers but it’s no concern of mine
they say that snakes were sacred long before St. Paddy’s birth bringing up the wily wisdom from deepest darkest earth they gleam and glide in glory they’re gorgeous and they’re good but not inside your sleeping bag when you wake up in the woods
