Songs by PAT SULLEY

Canadian Boy

Canadian Boy
St. Lucia

I’ve got a ’57 Chevy
I’ve got a “69 Corvette
I got a brother who ain’t heavy
I got a girl I can’t forget
I got a friend who ain’t so lucky
He’s gonna lose it all I bet
I got a girlfriend in Kentucky
I got another in Tibet!

Well I’ve never been a lawyer
So I never give advice
But I‘ve been called “One Two-Timer”
By a girl who was my wife
Well she said “don’t be a stranger”
When I said I must be goin’
Cause it’s easy come and easy go
When that North Wind starts blowin’.

Chorus:
Cause I’m free
I’m free as a boy can be
There ain’t no one who can stare me down
Or take a part of me
Well I can take a piece of anyone
Who wants a piece of me
Cause I’m a Canadian Boy that’s me.

Well I’ve never been to Egypt
And I ain’t been to Tibet
But last year I flew down to Peru
And I ain’t caught my breath yet.
And I’ve been down south to Chile
Where the wine is oh so sweet
But there ain’t no place like my backyard
Or Livin’ on my Street

[Lyrics]


I Wanna Be A Lion

I Wanna Be A Lion

Written on Safari in The Serengeti
Tanzania September 2009
Patrick Sulley

I wanna be a Lion
I wanna be the King of your Jungle, girl
Be my little lioness, be my girl,
I wanna be a Lion.
I wanna be a Lion,
I wanna run in circles around and ‘round
I wanna roll around with you on the ground
I wanna be a Lion.

Those guys are like hyenas
They’re all sniffin’ around your door
They’re all bark and not much bite
They don’t even have a Roarrrrr!
They can’t be a Lion
We just give it “All” and more
They all “Hoist their Tails and Run”
When they hear My Lion’s “Roarrrrr”!

I wanna be a Lion
I wanna be the King of your Jungle, girl
Be my little lioness, be my girl,
I wanna be a Lion.
I wanna be a Lion,
I wanna run in circles around and ‘round
I wanna roll around with you on the ground
I wanna be a Lion.

He’s King of the Jungle
He’s a family man
He’s got lots of little lion cubs
Chasing after their old man.
Simba of the Jungle
Leader of his Pride
Lots of pretty little lionesses
Are sleeping by his side.

[Lyrics]


Livin' In Paradise

Livin’ Here Paradise
Patrick Sulley
Florida 2017

Chorus:
Well I’m Livin’ here in Paradise
While my baby she’s in Halifax
Well she thinks I’m havin’ too much fun
Well I don’t know where she gets her facts.
Well the sun is shinin’ everyday
With bikinis walkin’ (you know the way)
She thinks I’m havin’ too much fun,
I just tell her She’s the Lucky One!

Verse 1:
Can’t get the beach sand outta my shorts
Got a bottle of wine but I can’t pull the cork
There’s a woman right there and she’s lookin’ my way
Sayin’ “Come over, baby, I'm just here for the day!”

Chorus:

Verse 2:
Well livin’ down here, it ain’t like livin’ up north
It’s like a winter vacation upon a resort
If I take my time to six months and a day
Then the IRS taxman comes lookin' my way!

Chorus:

Verse 3:
Well I ran outta money, I ran outta rope
On a southern vacation, I’ve been such a dope
I gotta a bottle of rum, and it pours the right way
Hey, there’s a girl with tequila, and she’s comin’ my way!

[Lyrics]


Sitting By The Waterside

Sitting By The Waterside
Patrick Sulley
Florida 2014/Revised 2020

Sitting by the waterside
The sailing ships go by
Sailing to another world
Between the sea and sky
Sitting by the waterside
Seabirds fill the air
Seeking out their own true love
Searching everywhere.

Bridge:
And you bury your feet in the sand
Can you take control of his hand
And you think 'can you ever be sure'
That this one will be evermore....

Sitting by the waterside
You watch the waves roll in
Bringing seashells to your shore
Roll back out again
Sitting by the waterside
The moon and stars collide
Satellites hang in the air
Decorate your sky.

Bridge:
And you bury your feet in the sand
Can you take control of his hand
And you think 'can you ever be sure'
That this one will be evermore....

Chorus:
And you go sailing, sailing, sailing away
To an island with coconut shores
And you go sailing, sailing, sailing away
To a land that could easily be yours..
Just set your feet on the shore.

Sitting by the waterside
Starlight fades away
Gentle breezes fill the air
Bring a brand new day.

[Lyrics]

SONGWRITER69
Patrick Sulley
Halifax 2021

I met this girl when I was in high school
She drove me crazy I just had to be cool
I bought this guitar from a friend of mine
Songwriter69

I had no money so I had to play
I went to college and I played all night and day
My friends all told me I had a good time
Songwriter69

dadadadada....

I went away so I could be a Star
I made some records but they didn't spin so far
The radio plays me from time to time
Songwriter69

Now I play songs with these good friends of mine
We laugh, we play, we sing, we "drink the too much wine"
Don't want my name in lights or be online
Songwriter69

Bridge: Everywhere you go, hey there, don't you know,
Things are going to work out fine.
Hey there, "can't you see?" It's all "C'est la Vie!"
All things in their own sweet time!

Well now I'm old and grey and I don't care
I still play blues in my armless rocking chair
If you come by we'll have a real good time
Songwriter69

Bridge: Everywhere you go, hey there, don't you know?
Things are going to work out fine.
Hey there, Can't You See?" It's all "C'est la Vie!"
All things in their own sweet time!

I have to go "they're taking me away"
They give me pills around this time most every day
They call me "Senor Dude", but I don't mind,
Songwriter69
