about

At the end of recording this album I decided it was far to personal to release as Mayor McCa. I put my beloved one-man band to rest for good. I released this album under my own name.

If CA Smith is Someone You Love, perhaps this album is for you.

Track Name: Baby
Why’d ya have to leave me baby?
Why’d ya have to die?
Since ya left me all I do is cry, cry, cry
You don’t believe in heaven but you do believe in me
So live inside my throat and help me sing

Why’d ya have to leave me baby?
Why’d ya have to die?
You had so much to live for, write your name across the sky
When you died a little bit of me inside died too
But I thank ya babe for giving me the blues
It was the ink when I wrote this tune

Why’d ya have to leave me baby?
Why d ya have to die?
I‘ll miss ya for forever babe, the rest of my life
I guess I have to get used to the way it s gonna be
Please accept this song, it is from me
I wrote it all myself. I am lonely
Track Name: Time
It takes time
So much time
I don t mind, it’s a friend of mine

I missed out on so many things
So I ain't gonna miss with you
I ain’t gonna mess with you too
I will dot each/every I
I’ll capital my Es
I’ll cross all of my Ts
Make Zs of all my Zs

My heart is dead already, you can kill it if you like
I fear I felt it all before. It’s like riding a bike
The tortoise always wins the race in the book that I read
I’ll say it slow and clearly so ya understand what I said

It takes time
So much time
I don t mind, it’s a friend of mine

I screwed it up so many times
Yes, I m real good at it
Ask any of my exes, they will tell ya I was shit
I didn’t mean to hurt them so, I was just a little sad
I thought that I was mad too

It takes time
So much time
I don t mind, it’s a friend of mine
Track Name: Shoot
I always thought the day I died I would be a young man...shoot
Now I m a little older, I realise that ain t the plan...shoot
I probably will live to 95 or 98
The older I get the more I realise it is too late
I keep hoping I’ll wake up and recognise that things are great...shoot

I tried to call in ill to work but they wouldn’t have it...shoot
Seems if you have a broken heart that doesn’t count as sick...shoot
I moved around from spot to place and made many new friends
But no matter where or when I go the blues keep following
Regardless of the life I lead my heart won't stop beating...shoot

I always thought as time goes by, more money I would get...shoot
Contrary to my beliefs I find myself in debt...shoot
Never had a credit card, they won't give it to me
Every time I apply they say, “No credit history”
I don t know how I’m supposed to get it if they won t give it to me...shoot

I suppose I don't like money and that’s why I do not have it...shoot
It would be a little nice just so my standing legs can sit...shoot
Mr. X told me I only have to sleep 5 hours a day
But if I don t get some rest then how am I expected to concentrate
It’s time to get up and fight again because it s getting late...shoot
Track Name: I Wanna Pet
I wanna pet but I can't
I ain't got no home of my own
I only own 2 pairs of pants
And the studies all have shown
If you got no money it’s hard to live
If ya can't take care of yourself than give
The kitty to someone who can give it lots of food
Feed it thrice a day

I wanna pet but I shouldn’t
I’ve got no time for myself
I don’t even have time to finish the books upon my shelf
If ya got no time to sleep it s true
Ya better give the puppy to someone who
Can walk it around all over town at least twice a day

Oh, what can I say?
I’m lonely but I made it that way
Oh, what can I say?
Everything I love dies anyway

I wanna pet but I can‘t.
I got nothing but the blues
I hardly love myself, so how can I love for 2?
Though I desperately need a friend
I better spend some time and tend
To myself and make sure that I am okay
Walk all around, all over town at least twice a day
Give myself lots of food, feed me thrice a day

Cos pets are funny
But what if this pet were a baby
Track Name: A Wedding Song
I thinks it s time
You and I got married
There s nothing better than you
From time to time
I’ll think that I have gone crazy
Til I fall asleep with you

Didn’t think I knew what I was looking for
People say who’ve fallen in love before
That I’d know it
Looked behind the screens
And looked behind the doors
I stopped when I opened yours

When it comes, the time to marry
Make all the promises to you
It will be you and I til we’re buried
I’m so in love with you
Track Name: H4B (Hooray For Beer)
10 years ago I could drink with the best
The bottle himself had a go
I’d have a good time, pass out
And have nice dreams in the snow.
You’d look in my eyes,
Not a sign from a rough night before

I could care less what was good for me
When capital was asked I gave up my body
I’ll pay later,
That is a long time from now and I'd cheer
And sing ‘hooray for beer!”
I’m a little older and I still go well
The bottle still gives me a go
I stay awake late
But the weight of it's heavy and so
Look in my eyes
You’ll see life but mistake it for tears

Thought talks to body
The things I will do
When ego and logic are friends.
It holds my head high
As I look in your eye for a cheer
And sing ‘hooray for beer!”

Beer is an acquired taste
Beer is what you make it
Beer will be your friend
Beer won t ask to shake it
Beer is made of barley
Beer is made of hops
Beer the golden beverage
Available in shops.

10 years from now
Who knows where I will be?
The bottle may still give me a go
Who knows how long friendship
Can last with a man and his drink?
Impossible to know
No matter how hard or how long I will think

Maybe I will choose to love someone else
When I look deep inside of myself
I’ll hold my glass high til I figure it out
And I’ll cheer
And sing ‘hooray for beer!”
Track Name: Hey Bloo
Can’t fall asleep anymore
In my own bed
I feel a little more comfortable
On the floor instead
I don’t know if I’m dumb anymore,
I don’t know if I’m blind
Just ask any one of my friends or foes
They’ll tell ya I’m like this all the time
Asking every woman in site if
She’ll be mine til the end of time

Every now and then, sippacuppacoffee
I go on out and on and on as anyone can see
And if I had my way, I’d do it all the time
I told ya once, won’t tell ya again
Won’t stop til I’ve got mine
Hey bloo
Hey bloo
Hey! Bloo!

If bedtime is 5 o’clock
Then wake me up at 6
I drank so much alcohol last night
I feel a little seasick
If I wanna have fun like last night
I better start early
I will rest when I’m dead
So leave the rest up to me
One red bull simply don’t work anymore
I better have three

Every now and then, sippacuppacoffee
I go on out and on and on as anyone can see
And if I had my way, I’d do it all the time
I told ya once, won’t tell ya again
Won’t stop til I’ve got mine
Hey bloo.
Hey bloo
Hey! Bloo!

Don’t have blood anymore
Now I have blood and beer
Even thought I know a little H20
Will make everything clear
At night on stage you’ll hear
All the sins that I confess
It’s obvious to anyone that
My whole life is a mess
But clean and sober and off the road
Are when I am saddest

Every now and then, sippacuppacoffee
I go on out and on and on as anyone can see
And if I had my way, I’d do it all the time
I told ya once, won’t tell ya again
Won’t stop til I’ve got mine
Hey bloo.
Hey bloo
Hey! Bloo!
Track Name: Ya Get Me, Babe
I could shave my beard for you
And I could cut my hair
I could change my clothes right now
You know I can look square
I can change my look
In each and every single way
But you know no matter who I'm trying to be
Ya get me, babe

I could change the inflections
And accent of my talk
I could change the rhythm
And the speed in which I walk
I could try standing around
In several different ways
But you know no matter who I m trying to be
Ya get me, babe

You know I tried to write a song
Like Lennon or Dylan
With words that stand clear
Of the melody’s feeling
They say, “The first thing that you write
Is the thing you meant to say.”
But I keep changing words and tunes
Several times a day

I could change my look and pretend
I’m too cool for you
Instead of calling up tonight
I could wait a day or two
I could play and be good
All of the games we play
But you know no matter who I m trying to be
Ya get me, babe

You know I tried to write a song
Like Guthrie or Marley
With a tune that sounds familiar
And keeps it s honesty
They say my songs ll be worthy
The day I finally die
But God don t wanna strike me down
No matter how hard I try

I could become someone who
I know I surely ain't
I could cover my colours
And surround them with black paint
It don’t matter how hard I try
Myself is put, it stays
Cos you know no matter who I m trying to be
Ya get me, babe
Track Name: Apologize To Your Boyfriend
Apologize to your boyfriend for me
He seems like a nice guy
I wouldn’t really know
I only met him once or twice

I can tell, he has got his shit together
He has not a single tattoo.
He s got a job
He can surely take care of you

Maybe he just fell in love with you when you smiled
With that being said I relate with him sometimes

I am who I am when I am around you
I enjoy being your friend
It’s funny who you run into
Whilst looking for inspiration

I am currently seeking my fortune
I admit it has taken a while
I’ve been saving
To buy you a rose that’ll never die

The closer we get, the harder it is to hide
I’ve admired you from afar for quite a time

Apologize to your boyfriend for me
It’s not personal to him
From time to time
I forget about rules and sin

If you and your boy break up one day
I hope you’ll consider me
I can’t promise I’ll wait
But I hope someday we’ll get to see
Track Name: Depression
Depression, I never thought that you existed
Depression, I thought you lived in songs like this
Depression, I always thought I knew the answers

Everyone gets sad now and then
It’s bound to happen in spite of all the friends you have
When once a week becomes everyday
It isn’t typical in spite of what they say

Depression, I never thought that you existed
Depression, I thought you lived in songs like this
Depression, I always thought I knew the answers

Sometimes you feel it can t get better.
You feel the rain is falling no matter the weather
I’m trying my best to be tough but my heart is getting weak
It’s time to give up

Depression, I never thought that you existed
Depression, I thought you lived in songs like this
Depression, I always thought I knew the answers
Track Name: Addicted To Chapstick
I’m addicted to chapstick, shampoo too!
What am I to do?
Use a minty white paste for my teeth
To wipe away all the plaque underneath
Lotion for my toes and cream for my face
Pretty soon I’ll need it all over the place
I’m addicted to chapstick, shampoo too!
What am I to do?

The rodents’ll get me
Giant ones!
Probably racoons, possibly possums
They’re building an army outside my window
Because of a squirrel that I hit in the snow
And I only shot a gopher just once before
But it wasn’t my fault, I was doin my chores!
The rodents’ll get me
Giant ones!
Probably racoons, possibly possums

Pepsi is evil, so is Coke
They give you diseases and make you smoke.
I’m sure Walt Disney is reading my thoughts
And making me buy all the things that I bought
I don’t know if I can defeat the voice again
If I can’t, then I gotta put a gun to my brain!
Pepsi is evil, so is Coke
They give you diseases and make you smoke
The rodents’ll get me
Giant ones!
Probably racoons, possibly possums.
I’m addicted to chapstick, shampoo too!
What am I to do?
Track Name: Drinkalottawater
Brush your teeth 3 times a day
Make sure you floss em too
Say the things you wanna say
And do what you do
Always walk an hour or so
Make sure to stretch your limbs
Love your friends and tell your foes
They are forgiven
Treat all of your children the same
Whether it s a son or daughter
And the most important thing
Other than breathing is to drinkalottawater

Always change your underpants
If you’re tired then take a snooze
Sing your song and dance your dance
When you fell you have to
Sleep at least 5 hours a day
If you can, fit in 3 more
Always go where you wanna go
But please don’t slam the door
Look before you cross the street
And polite when you cross your borders
And the most important thing
Other than breathing is to drinkalottawater.

Tell your folks that you love them
Even if they know
Tell your kids you love em too
It’ll help em grow
Eat 3 square meals a day
And start your day off right
Get some sunshine when it stays
And turn off your light at night
Always say ‘Please and thank you”
Anywhere, anytime you order
And the most important thing
Other than breathing is to drinkalottawater.
Track Name: You've Got A Lot To Learn
Baby baby baby
You’ve got a lot to learn

I know I’m not Dad
I’m sad you never had one
But if I was I’d tell you
That it’s hard to be a man, son
The more you know
The less you have to learn
So take the things you know
And show them where to grow

Baby baby baby
You’ve got a lot to learn

As you grow in years
The body tends to fool you
The colours that were bright
Fade to black and white
And even though
The range is limited
It’s easier to choose
When you have to pick from two

Baby baby baby
You’ve got a lot to learn

The life you live makes
You the man you are
Decisions that you choose
Can keep you here or take you far
It’s okay if
You don’t always get it right
You make up your own fate
So learn from your mistakes

Baby baby baby
You’ve got a lot to learn
Track Name: Judge Judy
Waking up next to you
I could think of worse things to do
A cup of tea, cereal
Keep me from being miserable
I thank you for makin it for me
I am so happy

I am who I am, I told you
You are you cos you tell the truth
I’d love to give ya everything
But you seemed pleased
With me being me
Did you hear?
I won lottery
It was 1 in a trillion
How lucky
?

Afternoon
12:03
We stay in bed
And watch Judge Judy.
Thank you baby
For what you have done.

2 is easy when you're number 1

You make me the best I can be
Whoopee
