Day 1

How Do You Hold Your Coffee Cup

Oddballs, Old Friends, and Weird Folk

How Do You Hold Your Coffee Cup – a song about holding a coffee cup

You can tell a lot about a person

By the way they hold their coffee cup

Grab it like you mean it

Hold it like you need it

Drink it like you’ve been here before

Some people hold it all tentative and doubtful

Like they’re afraid of getting too big of a mouthful

Well, go ahead and dive right in

Show us your steamy grin

Sip it like you’ll never have it again

I’ve been known to sit too long, just holding my coffee cup

All nervous and twitchy, I’m afraid to get back up

When it’s gone it’s gone

When it’s done, move on

You can’t drink from an empty cup

Grab it like you mean it

Hold it like you need it

Oddballs, Old Friends, and Weird Folk – a song about playing weird folk music with my oddball friends

I got a lot of old friends

Everyone of them started out as a new friend

So I guess I’ll go out and make a lot more new friends

Eventually, I’ll have a lot more old friends

Oddballs, old friends, and weird folk

Oddballs, old friends, and weird folk

I know some people that like to run their ship real tight

Everything’s got to be all hip and cool

Well, I know who I am and I know who I’m not

And I ain’t never been nobody’s fool

Oddballs, old friends, and weird folk

Oddballs, old friends, and weird folk

I’m listening to all the old songs on the radio

Sometimes a song, it can make me cry

I remember all the times that we we had 

And I remember the reasons why

I guess I’m doing ok

I’ll never be something that I’m not

I’m sitting here just being me

And being me is all that I got

Oddballs, old friends, and weird folk

Oddballs, old friends, and weird folk

I never ate lunch with the cool kids

You see, it used to bother me, now it don’t

There’s no such thing as a free lunch

Sha nonny nonny skiddley nont

Oddballs, old friends, and weird folk

Oddballs, old friends, and weird folk

I hug my friends when I see them 

Because, hey, you never know

See we’ve lost some friends before their time

I’ll sing another song before I go

Oddballs, old friends, and weird folk

Oddballs, old friends, and weird folk

Oddballs, old friends, and weird folk
