Don’t Worry (It’s Still A Beautiful World) By Wilfred Kozub When something’s happening I know it’s happening to me It may be far away, but I know it’s happening to me And I tell myself Don’t worry Don’t worry It may be the Middle East Might be the water flowing south The crappy air we breathe Or the bad taste in my mouth Don’t . . . it’s still a beautiful world Don’t worry . . . Don’t . . . it’s still a beautiful world I worry ‘bout the rising tides More trouble up in Palestine (volatile) And what about the changing climes? I’ve got a lot on my mind! We’re working too much overtime Did you know we’re running out of time? (I take my time) I’m clinging to what’s mine is mine What’s brewing at the border line? Don’t worry, don’t worry Don’t . . . don’t . . . don’t Don’t sweat it This life’s a mystery And it gets deeper every day Wish I could find a way Make all the weirdness go away If I said I didn’t care about the world, well I’d be lyin’ But I know what’s best for me – Yeah, this old neighborhood of mine And I tell myself Don’t worry Don’t worry It’s still a beautiful world It’s still a beautiful world It’s still a beautiful world Don’t worry – it’s still a beautiful world Copyright, ©, 2007, 2008, by Wilfred Kozub/Zönik Music Productions (SOCAN)

There’s Nothing Wrong With Me By Wilfred Kozub I was a quiet kid Not someone you’d ever know Living inside my head In a land of the ice and snow Once in a while when I came out I would give a great big shout That I though someone would hear By accident I was born Into a world of changes Just like someone’s life In another land of strangers Nothing special . . . Just the usual crises that I keep to myself There’s no worries It’s so windy here the birds won’t fly It’s so cold that you could almost die And I’m livin’ for the great by and by No, there’s nothing the matter with me This world’s just in a fix Maybe luck is right around the corner It’s just a cosmic blip Nothin’ that good karma can’t recover The sun is setting on My dearest melodies I’ve got the tv on All my favorite memories Nothing new is coming out But ‘least I’ve got something Anyway I don’t worry that the sun don’t shine I never have to close my blinds There’s nothing that could blow my mind Nothing So forget it That’s right There’s nothing the matter with me That a perfect world can’t put in order Choogalooga choogalooga Yeah . . . choogalooga The water’s gone south, but We can buy it back . . . we can buy it back There’s nothing wrong with me And you’re not any better than me Copyright, ©, 2007, 2008, by Wilfred Kozub/Zönik Music Productions (SOCAN)

I Like To Go Fast by Wilfred Kozub She’s buggin’ my mind - and I only just met her Yeah, I gotta see her - the sooner the better So I gotta drive - I gotta go fast And I like to go fast I gotta make haste - you know what I’m sayin’ Could be a perfect day, or maybe the rain It’s just the weather and it means nothin’ I gotta go fast What will she say? “Why you takin’ so long? . . . Did you not have the pedal to the metal, hon? . . . Or did you stop for the police when you prob’bly coulda made a run? Did you get up before the birds just like you said you would?” Across the desert Through the mountains Wind down the valley Straight through to the ocean I will find you waitin’ for me - don’t want to make you sad So I gotta go fast - ‘cause I’m in the mood When the light says go - my car says VROOOMMM I’ve got your number, and I’ve got it wired I’m playin’ my tunes, makin’ up rhymes Lookin’ for funny clouds and readin’ the highway signs Don’t lose your head to save a minute (Burma Shave) You need your head - your brains are in it (Burma Shave) Why is it when you try to pass, The guy in front goes twice as fast? (Burma Shave) Across the desert Through the mountains Wind down the valley Straight through to the ocean I will find you waitin’ for me Across the desert Straight through to the mountains Wind down the valley All the way to the ocean I will find you on a rooftop Pinot noir . . . gazing at the stars above . . . . . . and watching for a moving one mmmm . . . yes almost there here I come oh yeah over there Copyright, ©, 2005, by Wilfred Kozub/Zönik Music Productions (SOCAN)

You’re True Blue By Wilfred Kozub I was a little too mild And a bit of a flower child When everyone was getting on with business I was only imagining I had skills and passions And hardly any practical ambition And while others were flourishing I only had vision And I saw her today – yeah, you’re my sweet people It’s a Heavenly day My knees are feeble, yeah And I saw her today – I say yeaaay You’re true blue – you’re true blue You’re true blue – you’re true blue Well I saw her today – yeah you’re my true people I lost my mindset today My knees are tremblin’, yeah And I saw her today Mmm . . . I say yeah You’re true blue – you’re true blue You’re true blue – you’re true blue And I thought beauty was everything And I thought everyone agreed But when it came to reality, There just wasn’t a need And it’s sad but it’s true You’ve fallen in with me And you’re true blue You’re true blue Well I saw her today But my eyes weren’t ready Such a brilliant display And my world unsteady, yeah And I knew what to say I say, yeah You’re true blue Copyright, ©, 2007, 2008, by Wilfred Kozub/ Zönik Music Productions (SOCAN)
